News Comments > Starbound Update Pace Explained
3. Re: Starbound Update Pace Explained Apr 17, 2014, 09:58 Kosh401
 
I didn't realize people were worried they were taking their money and running?? I thought Starbound had one of the best early access launches in terms of content and stability, including the updates. I guess maybe people just got used to the rapid updating shortly after launch of the early access. Seems ironic/funny.

News Comments > PC Battlefield 4 Naval Strike Delayed

Well at least they actually delayed it rather. Too bad about launch, but my friends and I have been having a great time since the sound loop crashing got fixed finally.

Looking forward to this DLC and their take on Titan Mode once they release it. It won't be as good as 2142 from the preview clips I've seen, but should still be a good amount of fun for a DLC pack.

News Comments > SimCity Offline Mode "Almost There"
39. Re: SimCity Offline Mode Mar 14, 2014, 17:11 Kosh401
 
Considering that the entire simulation is done on a single processing core, I don't think we'll see them increase the city sizes without some serious overhauling of the engine.

Pretty crazy they went that route; the game is terribly flawed in more ways than just the features (or lack there of in some cases).

I'd pick it up if there was no monthly fee. But I'm sure it will go free to play sooner rather than later, so I'll keep an eye out for it then.

The combat is a work in progress. People in the beta wanted more feedback in combat, plus the addition of collisions. Both of these are in the works and to some degree present on the public test server, but that's only for the full-time beta players, not the public weekend betas. In other words, don't judge the final product by what you see in this particular beta (it's a build behind). However they have stated that a newer build will be tested in the next beta, so that should have collisions and possibly the better feedback.

Just to add, from what I've a gathered from skimming Reddit, collision detection is only for NPC's and is/will not be part of PvP.

It still blows my mind that this game isn't multithreaded. 100% of the simulation/calculations are done on a single thread. It's crazy and hard to fathome that they felt this was a good design/development direction. At least they were consistent across the board in that regard, though.

I'll almost definitely pick it up. I've kept an eye on it via its Reddit page so have read most of the dev blog updates which I found interesting. Pretty impressive coming from a dev team of exactly 1!

I bet it would be full of concept art, etc., that was already made for the original games. Maybe they would photoshop some of it up a bit, but I'm sure all that kind of stuff was acquired as well.

Haha, yeah that sucks. My buddy and I have been running around and mostly are coming across extremely cautious but non-hostile players. We even had a trade with 2 other players, our extra can opener for 2 canteens, compass, and 2 or 3 cans of food I dont remember. Of course now other things can be used to open cans (at a cost to losing some of the food) but before that patch can openers were like gold

Anyway, we always go our own way after running into other players exactly for the situation you had! It will be interesting to see how things develop as they keep adding more items to the game.

Interesting, they are attempting to fix the death behind cover errors. Maybe there will be less 250+ ping people on every server trying to take advantage of the weird BF netcode.)

One of the devs was just posting on Reddit about that a few days ago. It's more of a packet loss issue rather than actual ping, and they are considering ways to show which servers you experience higher packet loss with. Has to do with pathing of the signal/info from the server to your modem, so some servers can result in significantly different experience despite both coming with good pings.

Anyway, that's just part of it of course but it's good to know they're working on it I guess.

News Comments > Battlefield 4 Patch

I just finished about 2 hours with my mates and only had 1 sound loop crash, which is about the same it's been since the first client patch (1 sound crash every 2ish hours). I crash more often on map changes, though none of those tonight. But who knows.

Fucking pissed it keeps happening and hasn't been fixed yet. But the damn game is just so good I'm still finding it worthwhile to keep going.. ironically enough, if it weren't for the crashes, I may not have stopped playing in reasonable time on more than a few weeknights lol :/

Starbound beta is extremely short on content and will see sweeping changes made fast and frequently, at least early on. It was live for two days before they decided to completely redo the weapon/enemy/planet scaling (with good reason).

Well, if they call it a beta, make changes like a beta, and update it like a beta, then I guess it's a beta!

There were some interesting DICE replies in a BF4 Reddit thread in which many people were posting significant FPS gains after they unparked their CPU cores; DICE basically said they were looking into it while also stating that Win 8 makes better/more efficient use of CPU's than Win 7.

What I'm REALLY interested in seeing are comparisons with Mantle next month; I'm hoping it makes the Win 7 vs Win 8 debate a moo point.

I think that's a pretty good showing for AMD, and especially at that price point.

I want to upgrade but may wait to see exactly what Mantle implementation brings to BF4 in December before I make a decision. Also, can't ignore TrueAudio.

If you're using a CPU with hyperthreading, disable it in BIOS and you'll see a huge performance gain.

Enjoying the beta so far, lots of really nice little changes here and there. They took a lot of community feedback from BF3 into consideration it seems.

Playing on Ultra and with War Tapes as the sound option and volume up is pretty fucking impressive.

Oh please. A guy taking 30 mins out of his day once a month to apprise people of what's going on isn't a lot to ask. And the fact is they actually have an obligation to their backers to communicate until they deliver the goods as promised.

Well, if you guys took a second to look at their website, it looks like they've been posting several updates every month for the past year... 64 of which seem to be Dev Diaries according to the most recent one on their main page..

They are/were definitely in over their heads and I'm glad I decided not to back them, but the hate/rage is a bit misplaced.

As mentioned, they do have a training mode type of area where you can practice and test stuff.

About the cheaters, they are in every game but haven't been a major for myself in bf3 simply because I play on servers with active admins.. They aren't hard to find, and once you have a bunch on your favorites list you're set - plus a fun side effect of this is you get to know a bunch of players also playing on the same servers which creates some good teamwork as well as good rivalries!

That BattleScreen (map) on a second monitor and/or possibly on my tablet is what I'm most looking forward out of this stuff!
