I'll post a link to this thread from the main boards. I started to lose interst after patch 249. The latest couple of patches have made the game confusing and (quite frankly) unplayable for me. UWE are a great team but they change fundamental things in one patch without any communication on it, then change again a week later. All this breaks the mods and pisses some people off (who dont have time to relearn.)
agreed that it is good to evolve but not without reason. As you say the tutorial is borked so god help newbies.
Its not the cough that carries you off but the coffin they carry you off in.
