Re: Version 0.17.60

And in the end, we have no choice, the discussion will end either because those who hate the change leave, or simply cannot effect change as they are not the devs. Silence is not acceptance. I would suggest you re read some of the informed and rational reasoning behind the pushback against this cha...

Re: Friday Facts #307 - 0.17 stable candidate

What even IS FCE? And why should WUBE care for them? Fortress Craft Evolved is a 3D factory building game on an alien planet. And the developer is notoriously active aggressive towards basically everyone :p. Thanks for clearing that up. If I google spidertron, all I get is Power Rangers. So Bandai-...

There were fluid mechanic updates planned for 0.17 that were put on hold.
I'm curious if these will eventually come into play or if they are abandoned.
Could we have a spidertron bringing new fluid mechanics please? :mrgreen:

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

Sure, but you are not talking about the new players that is what it is done for. A new player after many hours still does not find challenges until the AO, it will take more than 15 hours of boring game and you will find what is avoided that you are 5 hours before, it is absurd. All we experienced ...

Re: Friday Facts #306 - Experimental Demo

*chases Compilotron all the way to a biter base so they munch on it* Btw, I found out you CAN shoot compilotron. Doesn't seem to do any damage, so why he has eleventy billion health is strange.

But i have been searching for these multiple mentions in the FFF's for an hour now, but I only found out that I only lost touch to what i loved, I clearly can't follow your reasoning anymore.
I assume Klonan meant multiple mentions of their priority to fix bugs now

Re: Version 0.17.60

Anecdotical evidence: On sunday I was adapting my factory to the changes of 17.60 and was confronted with a backed-up oil production because of HO. The thing is: I needed 5 minutes to recognize the problem even though I looked into plants and refineries. But I had to look at that yellow background c...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

..., the pickaxe,... were all puzzles and gates that made the game what it was ... As soon as I see pickaxe mentioned I really have a hard time taking an argument serious anymore. The pickaxe itself as an item can not be called a puzzle or gate to anything. One might argue that mining by hand is to...

I just setup my compilatrons to power themselves by eating trees.
Great idea.

Reminds me a little of the first RTS, Dune, where automatic harvesters would have no problems wandering into enemy territory in their quest for resources. I see similar happen here (and I like it).

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

As much as I like the idea of early ground based bots, I shudder to think of the pathfinding calculations that would result. I wrote a mod, which is on the mod portal, that does path finding for various tasks with sheep, err, compilatrons. The unit API is actually very fast when used properly. Ther...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

I figured both sides should be represented equally in the "useless arguments" category. No really TBH I was just sick of the complaining and had to complain myself. I lurked for weeks watching people freaking out and I reached my limit. Never fear I'll go back to silent mode now that I've let off t...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

Ok, it hurts both sides, but that still doesn’t diminish the point I’m trying to make. I’m only discussing it from the first person’s side. They’re still hurt, regardless of the warning given before, and it’s stupid and wrong to say they don’t have a right to feel hurt because they were warned befo...

Re: Version 0.17.60

If you don't want to understand the general ideas, i can explain why each point is questionnable. The age means something as such: If younger player i average finish the game faster, and suddenly one youtuber whose public is mostly that age launches rocket. Does the trend in come in from the new up...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

Well, money aside, I kind of feel like all these posts saying “it’s EA, it should be expected” are being said as if we don’t have a right to be upset or hurt over the changes. I just feel like it’s like saying if someone was to go on a date with another person, but before that first date they were ...

Re: Version 0.17.60

I do not contest the general usefulness of statistics, but i would like to highlight some stuff that in this context makes some of the applications you propose difficult. The approach from general statistic is providing different information than if you have the equivalent of cookie that would give...

Re: Friday Facts #305 - The Oil Changes

Because it is entirely possible that no further version ever gets released. That's obviously not what happened here. And, by staying on an older version, you also lose access to new/updated mods. Equally obviously I said that for the general case of EA. To show that steam tells you to keep your exp...

Yes because people that does the poll are professionnals and use properly the statistics.

Re: Version 0.17.60

If they have access to these, then yes, you are absolutely correct. But we don't know if they do or not. Yes. I can say I know for a fact that developers get a lot more statistic information than the general public. I heard a developer praising steam for their statistical information. The rest is c...
