Something I discovered recently. It reminds me of the game Elite.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elite_(video_game)

>Its title caught somewhere between the 4X majesty of Endless Space and the interstellar tourism of No Man’s Sky, Endless Sky is an open-source, open-world game of exploration, trading, and combat. Inspired by Escape Velocity, it’s feature-complete and available to download right now, with free-form rags-to-riches/shuttle-to-battlefleet play fully implemented, and one of three planned stories already in place. As if that weren’t enough, there’s also an editor and a guide to creating new ships, missions and artwork.

It seems well designed. It is easy to get into but shows potential to be as complex as you like. You start with one ship and you can just trade and get your bearing. You can max out at something like having a whole fleet armed and take on pirate(s)/planets and steal all their stuff or be a pirate yourself.

You can also optionally take on missions if you prefer a more role play style. It is very open ended and in the absence of anything else you can just capitalistically transport and trade goods.

Ships can be quite configurable too, I think especially as they get larger and you can covert space between cargo holds or equipment "holds" (ie. weapons and defence measures).

Hey guys, I am working on some sort of text based simulator that can generate game world and its inhabitants and then simulate the changes in that world. Like rise and fall of civilizations.

It must sound super complicated but it probably doesn't have to be. Basically, it would be some sort of pseudo engine to simulate world and AI civilizations in civilization management Quests or CYOAs games, played on imageboards like this.

It would help a ton with creating random events and making game more dynamic since neighbouring civilizations wouldn't stay at same power all the time or depend on my judgement of how they would develop. Instead I would like the computer to handle it by computing together factors on which development of civilizations would depend on.

I would just write it in form of webpage(s) with HTML5 and JavaScript. I would really prefer to keep to web development languages. I have seen well made advanced game of similar theme being contained in single .html document, so its gotta be possible.

I would like to put it to use as soon as I get necesarry ammount of calculations working so the program can take care of most important stuff like population growth, happiness, AI settlement expansion, resource management of AI civilizations, etc…

To be clear, this isn't me asking for help. I just wanted to show of my idea and am curious what do you guys think. If anyone wants to work on this with me, I would try to coordinate with them, but I can't make performance promises.
This is just my little thing to keep me occupied and away from degenerate drugs/hobbies.

Also I am hypocrite for telling Atlas that game developing is a time sink and waste of time and its oversaturated market. While all of these things might be true, I am doing game dev myself now.

>Sadly I am mostly intermittently inspired to write some code (game) but I find it more fun making parts of it work than the whole


I know this feeling all to well, sometimes a break though in how to get something working is so exiting that moving on to the next part can be demotivating, because you worked so hard to figure one aspect out, only to realize that there is so much more to be done before the dream comes alive.

>The spreadsheet stuff (the code) in the background is pretty straight forward with some trial and error. But at that time I am "bored" as the fun stuff figuring out how to solve a problem is over


Coding is the prefect mix of creativeness and logic solving, and once it's over and you found the solution, implantation can feel like a chore.

>but it is a mountain of work to complete it


Isn't that amazing, the idea that it can all "work". I love that part about being a programmer, it almost feels like anything is possible, that no matter how big the project is, it's all small little steps.

>And I am shit at graphic and sound, and that is what makes a game I think, at least for the end user.

Regarding coding Graphics I was dabbling with a few graphic libraries but switched to Unity as it has all you need (same for Unreal and CryEngine etc). The problem I have with graphics is making 3D models to put in the game or tiles or animations, the Artsy stuff. Putting an image into a game is fairly easy, drawing an image that looks good is another story.

I fully understand the problem you have. Commenting and documenting code is as boring and important as making flowcharts before you start coding. So it never happens. When you find yourself barely understanding your own code without backtracking where the function calls go it is hard to explain it to others.
But just let me know (post in /vx/) if you need help or want input on anything.

Oh I know, I'm not a natural artist, I may have potential to be one, but the hours and hours of practice I would need would just to get something decent is to much for me.

>But just let me know (post in /vx/) if you need help or want input on anything.


Yeah, that would awesome. The last thing I was doing for my civilization game was trying to figure out a game mechanic and how it would work in the game, so it wasn't so much a coding issue but a concept issue. If I come across something I could use some help with, I'll look for you here on this board.

Same for me by the way, I wouldn't mind helping with figuring out an aspect of code if you wanted help.

>>577
Same for your game(though I know nothing about HTML code) but I'm sure the concepts(looping though information, the objects) still apply, if it's possible to translate the ideas into HTML then I'm willing to help.

Of course it is. Plus the Dev appealing to fans is simply the best. And DLCs are ACTUAL DLCs not some 1 hour shit for one time only.
GOTY edition with both DLCs is for 40$ on GOG.com and it is 100 if not 200+ hours of fun, as you can finish the game with different endings, multiple times. Buy it now fams!

if you are a souls crackhead there is a good chance you wont like it at all. the combat is…underwhelming to say the least. plays like a slower version of a arkham batman game. Your character gets so overpowered later your barely ever have to heal because certain skills and mechanics are OP. Not in a good way, though. the difficulty is pretty inconsistent. At the start of the game you will struggle to defeat hard enemies and get even a scrape of money.

All that said and done, if you want to play a really great RPG game and dont mind doing mass of sidequests, you will like it. Great game with greta polish, will easyly push you over 100 hours playtime. has a tendency to get somewhat boring after that though.

I recommend you buy Witcher 2 for testing purposes next time a seasonal or weekend sale is around, those are cheap for about 2,50 Dollars. Should be enough for you to judge if you like the combat system.

So, since we don't exactly have a board for this kind of topic, and that it -is- technically paranormal, what do you lot think of the new Twin Peaks series and the symbolism inherent in it? Also, do you think Twin Peaks would make a great game, perhaps with Deadly Premonition 2 filling that role?

All in all it's pretty good. Genuinely unnerving, utterly insane, and chock full of as much symbolism as Lynch and frost could slip past the ((censors)). It's exactly what you would expect from seeing lynch with absolutely no restrictions. There is also a lot of Saturn symbology with the primary villains, and even a bit of Jupiter tossed in for the good guys.

Is anyone playing this battle royale game? It's sort of like the Hunger Games.

100 players armed with only their fists parachute onto an island and have to scavenge weapons and equipment. Last player/team standing wins. An ever shrinking perimeter circle slowly herds the players into close quarters. Anyone who leaves the perimeter takes damage over time.

I never seem to have an opportunity to loot players in group games.

When solo, you can get the drop on someone, end the fight, loot, and gtfo.

In group, you get the drop on a guy, his friends dig in, and then you have to work harder to dislodge and kill the survivors. By that point, either two more squads are fucking with you or the wall is bearing down on you.

This is a good point. I'll add by saying that not all forms of meditation are the "clear your mind and sit there" variety. Comprehensive and intensive stretches are another practice which engage the mind (in a 'moderating/maintaining the stretch' sense) while also leaving the mind free to process whatever.

Anyone else think that thr 11 mile road Creepypasta would make a hell of a game? You'd start at the start of the road in some sort of sedan, and you'd have to drive down the road making sure to avoid all the dangers from the original story, be give a certain key to cover your eyes for miles 9 and 11, a usable radio, a meter to measure the cold, etc. so what do yall think? Maybe if you beat the 11 miles you get hard mode where you're on a bike and it makes handling way harder and the cold affects you more.

Though shortly after its trailer debuted, many Twitter users began pointing out controversial messages posted by Soret over the past few years. Among these tweets were messages regarding The Last Night from early in its development, with Soret explaining in 2014 how the game would “take place in a future where ‘progressivism’ has spiraled out of control,” and that it would feature “a cyberpunk world where modern feminism won.” “Finally we’ll have another take on the cyberpunk oppression instead of Big Brother.

Zoe Quinn, the indie game developer who was GamerGate’s first target following unsubstantiated claims that she’d had relations with members of the gaming press in exchange for positive reviews, tweeted about Soret’s involvement with the controversial online group. “Just fyi I am 100% for never letting it go when a developer participated in GamerGate (unless someone actually made amends but no one has),” she wrote. “If you laid down with MRAs, abusive ex boyfriends, LITERAL NAZIS, et all, you deserve fleas.”

Soret posted a series of tweets responding to the controversy, explaining that he supports “equality & inclusiveness” and that The Last Night is “in no way … a game against feminism or any form of equality.” “A lot of things changed for me these last years,” he continued. “The fictional setting of the game does challenge techno-social progress as a whole but certainly not trying to promote regressive ideas.”

Essentially prestige from Call of Duty. Once you reach max level (100), you can burn all your spending money and $200 million of your offshore to gain an infamy level (1-0, where 1 is the infamy level and 0 is the regular level). You still keep all of your weapons and masks, but start again with no skills.

Infamy level 25 is the highest level one can attain and takes a very, very long time to achieve. At that point, you should know how to do every heist and transfer that knowledge to others. That's impossible to do if you just used hacks to get to that point.

It's just a side effect of the developer giving away 5 million copies of the game last week.

Payday 2 is a co-op heist game so no pvp. He probably did it by using some hack to rank up the infamy.
