Rimworld 15/01/29(Thu)09:12 No. 143740 ID: d2ef46 [Reply]

For those not in the know, Rimworld is a 2D base builder where you start with three crash survivors. You have to survive on a planet and create a base which will protect you from various threats, ranging from psychic insectoids to rabid wildlife to pirates. Your colonists can starve, suffer heatstroke, have their limbs blown off, and more. Think Dwarf Fortress, except you can tell what the fuck your're looking at and the UI isn't shit. Plus, the game has an AI storyteller which is designed to decide what events will make your game interesting. "Interesting" usually means kill or cripple your colonists, but sometimes it pulls through with a very intense save. At the moment Rimworld is in alpha, but it's more than playable. The dev is focused on fixing, improving, and adding new mechanics rather than new content with each release, so if you want to expand the content, you'll need to download some mods or make your own.

If you want to buy it, and this is one of those games where I think supporting the dev should be fully endorsed, it costs $30 and can be obtained here:
With each release, you are given a DRM free .zip file which you can download 7 times. This resets with each new release. Each .zip file can be copied as many times as you want. There is no install, you just unpack the file and play.

The thing I love about this game is how easy it is to mod, and how easy it is to install mods. The mods I'm using right now are:

-Better Power
Most of it doesn't work in the current version of Rimworld. I keep it around in case the guy decides to update the mod.

-Central Heating
It adds something the game should have had when temperature was introduced: vents. Rather than having one cooling/heating unit per room, you can have one per building and connect each room with vents. It also adds industrial heaters.

They are going insane from all sort of things. One my miners, dark space, unclean. Also being int he heat. I tried to get some AC in atleast the bedrooms, but ran out of materials, and just attempted to strip mine till i found some iron, with little to no luck. Most of the time, the insanity is things that are mainly unavoidable. I am not looking on how to prevent this, because I understand what the debuffs are for, and how to fix them, I am just curious about if there is something I can actively be doing to get their sanity up in a short amount of time, if things begin getting out of control. Or ways to prevent the insane from using up all my medical supplies >:C

15/02/05(Thu)22:34 No. 143781 ID: d2ef46

If your miners are going insane from dark space, you can forbid them from mining and have them work on other stuff. If your place is unclean, you can make it so that one of your colonists do nothing but clean by making cleaning their highest priority in the jobs screen.

Micromanaging the jobs is important in dire times.

It's not like you can go "oh shit my colonists are insane, I'll just have them do X action and make it better." It's more like "if I do this my colonists won't go insane later." You have to prevent it from happening in the first place by thinking ahead.

PA seems to be more about management and bieng sustainable where I find Rimworld is more about keeping things from constantly falling apart through intense micromanagement. I only played around 15 minutes of PA so far, it didn't grab me like Rimworld did. Also they seem to be quite aesthetically different once you get over the few similarities. I think Rimworld is a pretty great game (even though I burned out of it a while ago, that's just what I do) and PA also seems to retry good and interesting in a very different way even though I haven't had a chance to get into it yet.

Would you guys play a WoW private server that had full loot on death, ffa pvp, custom classes, rebalanced classes around pvp, custom areas and gear progression?

Hypothetically speaking.

the technical quality of WoW has improved over the years, purely improvement

however the nature of the social stuff shifted from one where you have a collective group of say 40 people, 20 or 10 people to 25 tops, groups of 10 being the norm and often 5 with little to no forced social cohesion

think the difference between everquest raids and a 3 people DnD session with 2 random people often people you don't like

I do get why people liked the 40/20 system even though it was worse, and there's something to be missed about it, and the 25/10 system was in fact better when 25's were something to strive due to better gear imho

15/06/18(Thu)06:58 No. 144174 ID: b2c2db

basically there's a social bubble phenomenon that hit and it kind of ruined the experience I think, at least for me, all the personalization kind of led to a sort of narcissistic world existence to a degree, I stopped playing because of the 40/20 antisocial aspects of grouping up and hardcore reliance on jackasses as a leaders but there was a middle ground I liked between the two

15/06/22(Mon)22:16 No. 144177 ID: e6ec46

Yes I would play, if I had time and a trusty internet connection.

thoughts? given the nature of other game releases that have been hyped I'm pretty terrified of it sucking, on the other hand I want it to be a success

the steampunkish stuff makes me kind of interested because it's clearly a society but at the same time it's post-apocalyptic, and while I know it's kind of "heretical" to say so, I think the addition of less rad-wasted stuff is nice since it lets them do some more storyline and living world stuff, plus the 3d dimensionality of gameplay looks promising

oh, well thanks then, was pretty worried when they said it'd be ready nov 15th, they said they were in development for 4-5 years so it seemed like that'd be a pretty minor amount of time to polish it off

15/06/16(Tue)23:09 No. 144170 ID: 10d6c2

4-5 years includes 2-3 years of endless meetings after meetings after meetings.

Remember, software deadlines are like a gas. They easily expand.

The last six months in crunch mode are far more productive than even the year preceding it, at least in terms of getting a playable product.

Everything before a certain point is just drawing on whiteboards over and over and talking about what you want to do while not actually doing it.

Running Fallout 2 Anonymous 15/06/14(Sun)01:31 No. 144159 ID: f032a4 [Reply]

So I'm at a garage sale. It's mostly weird shit (old racist statues, indistinct appliances, etc.). Then I see it: Fallout 2 for Windows 98. Holy shit. The russians running the sale charged fifty cents for it; thanks guys!

Well, like many, I can't get it to run well at all. No music, shitty cutscenes, the works. I imagine that the few of you who actually have an interest in the original fallouts must have had some workarounds of some sort?

Okay, better plan:

Install WUBI on Windows,
Install WINE on WUBI,
Install Fallout on WINE!

Yes, it makes little sense using window to run linux to run a psuedo-windows to run a game that doesn't run on windows anymore, but it's an entertaining solution to say the least. But the batshit part is it will work!

15/06/14(Sun)05:29 No. 144163 ID: ca7e87

I've run both Fallout 1 and 2 successfully on windows 7 machines, but the only thing I had to deal with was colour corruption. I seem to remember having some really retarded workaround for that in Fallout 1 at least, like I had to have mspaint open before launching the game or something similar. Just installed Falllout 2 to check, and that actually runs just fine. There's some colour corruption in the menus but the actual game itself seems to run fine, music and all. What are you actually trying to run the game on?

15/06/16(Tue)06:25 No. 144168 ID: 10d6c2

That was probably 256 color palette corruption, caused by Windows grabbing part of the palette for use by their ui or something equally annoying.

There used to be a flag you could set on the executable to fix that, though I'm not sure if any of 7's compatibility boxes will do it.

PC to PS4.. 15/05/06(Wed)05:47 No. 144030 ID: 68cf76 [Reply]

I've been a PC gamer my whole life. Started way back with Keen and Jazz Jack Rabbit, into 3D with Fury 3 and Mechwarrior 2, all the way through to today. I have had a couple of consoles along the way- I loved my N64, Gamecube was fun and I have a Wii U under my TV now, but I'm a PC gamer. I'm also thinking about jumping ship to PS4. I've lost interest in tinkering now, invasive DRM (such as Steam/uPlay/Rockstar Social) pisses me off and laying back with a controller is my preferred method of play (I sit at my desk for FPS, rest of my gaming is done through the TV using a Wii U Pro controller and bluetooth adapter). My question to you lot is, would I regret it? GTA V is mostly what I have in mind now, is the PS4 version really that inferior? How about Far Cry 4? Am I going to hate playing that with a controller? Any and all opinions appreciated. Thanks!

You would probably regret it. Spending 500 bucks on something that is even more restricted as far as accessories and applications with ALMOST as bad DRM (i have several physical pc discs that refuse to install because steam hijacks the installation to say its key has been used). Just grab GTAV for your PC and a PS4 controller if you absolutely need to play GTA but buying a console just because you want a console experience is stupid, ESPECIALLY if your purpose is to play some fucking multiplats.

15/06/05(Fri)20:27 No. 144142 ID: a1d58f

Why did you even make the thread? Not a single post was 'for' your decision. You were planning on buying the system regardless.

Be careful, he might call you a PC zealot or ask if your system uses liquid cooling.

Lately I've been getting back into live streaming. Although I stream regularly, not very many people come to watch.

What would be a good option for me to draw more attention to my streams? I want to do something more proactive than just sitting and waiting for someone to stumble on my channel. Any recommended forums or places I can try and advertise my stream on to draw in viewers?

get a twitter, before streaming tweet a hashtag associated with the game you are playing or type of run you are doing.

Cant really give any other advice without knowing more about what you are streaming, and what type of persona you're bringing to the table.

Zearoth 15/05/27(Wed)22:24 No. 144122 ID: 7928e8

I stream a wide variety of games. Right now it's GTA V story mode. My persona is one that's sarcastic and funny, but serious in some cases (Not an easy thing to describe)

I have a twitter, and twitter is a good start. Any ideas of forums or websites? What about here, would anyone here be interested in checking out my channel?

The only time I ever got into a Twitch stream was watching a guy recover a (large) landing craft from some Jool moon, transfer it to his (very large) interplanetary craft, then executed a transfer orbit from Jool to Kerbin, only to discover he didn't have enough ships in orbit to transfer all the Kerbals back to the surface.

I suggested Jeb could get out and deorbit himself then parachute to the surface. He responded in video to my comment, despite a few hundred people being in the stream. And he interacted with a lot of people's comments, not just mine.

Sometimes conspiracy theories are just idiots trying to make themselves feel better about being irascible loners that nobody likes.
