Nearly every accusation is a confession. Trump supporters falsely claimed the Dems didn't accept the 2016 election result, now they're refusing to accept the result of the 2020 election. Their false accusation now is that the election is being stolen, which is basically a confession that they're going to make 2024 (edit: and 2022) as much of a shit show as they can. America is screwed by the way it's going.

Cities Skylines:

* bugs, crashing and general flakiness
* Too busy churning out paid DLC to address bugs, crashing and general flakiness
* many fan made workshop items try to fix said bugs, crashing and general flakiness
* frequent new versions which are mainly teasers for more DLC completely break fan made workshop fixes
* after a few iterations, workshop authors get frustrated or burn out, leaving the workshop a unholy mess of add-ons that do not work with current build of the game.

My friend and I have been playing this game for years and that has not been our experience.

I'd say there's some of this, you do need to be aware of what mods no longer work. There's a mod to tell you if you have dead mods, which is both useful and a bad sign.

I don't think there's much burn-out. Plenty of creators move on but that's inevitable. I'm pleased with how Paradox have been supporting me.

Without the Steam workshop, it's a decent city builder. Probably the best out there, but that says as much about the competition as it does about this game. With the Steam workshop, it's my favourite game of all time.

You can download mods and assets elsewhere, but it's a lot more hassle and a lot less choice. I don't make my mods available elsewhere, although some have been uploaded by other people.

What mods did you make for this game?

Move It, Picker, Optimised Outside Connections, Rebalanced Industries, plus a few more niche ones.

I think so, certainly they fixed the facial problems. It's fine game; not as good as Mass Effects 1 to 3 (bar that ending) but it's worth playing.

I'm enjoying it a lot. Performance is fine, not great (mid/high on 2070 Super at 1440p), getting about 60 FPS. I could probably improve this with the right settings.

It's been very stable for me, 6 hours in and the only bugs I've seen are minor graphic glitches like momentarily weird animation. No broken quests, no reloads required except on death, no game crashes. From my own experience so far, this is launch quality.

You're right, I won't, although point #3 reminded me of one of the things that made me realise you're a lost cause. You posted statistics about how more white people are killed by cops than black people (2x, I think you said), but ignored the relative population ratios (6x) that clearly demonstrated that black people are much more likely be killed. What's the point of debating someone being so selective and disingenuous?

This thread maybe more than any other showcases how utterly deaf you guys are. There's no discussion when one side can't listen to what the other has to say. Beamer seems to believe PAX and E3 run a policy that literally excludes developers of color from the event, and NKD and Redeye are too busy fighting ghosts to make any sense whatsoever.

You have repeatedly demonstrated that you're not worth bothering with. You come across as a stubborn, permanently offended person who is just going to complain about whatever anyone who disagrees with you says. You are not entitled to anyone's time. That's a shame, because you're probably the smartest person on here who is making these arguments - which really should tell you something. Why do you think that the people who agree with you are also the people who struggle to string together a sentence?

The ignore button makes everything so much better. Highly recommended. Some people prove themselves incapable of learning and just keep making the same flawed arguments every single thread.

"Flawed arguments" that guy and every single one of you fail to disprove. All you have is emotional responses that all come down to an irratic "You're just stupid! *sob*" in so many words. I am not impressed nor has my mind been changed by such rhetoric.

You have repeatedly complained about how you don't have what you consider to be proper discussions here anymore. You're the reason people stopped debating with you much, because you're incapable of learning and just keep making the same flawed arguments every single thread. Your mind isn't changed by anything, so you're not worth the bother. I don't even post here any more and I've had enough of your stubbornness.

Does anyone have a clue what women and abuse he's discussing?

The women he's angry at because they won't give him the attention he thinks they deserve to get - but then, this doesn't narrow it down.

It's a disgrace that he hasn't been banned for his repeated misogyny, racism and trolling. He is a large part of why there's little point in commenting around here, when you have no standards for conversation then eventually only people with no standards will converse. Blue, why do you put up with what you've described as his serial misogyny?

It's important to note she used her Twitter account with over 2K followers as a podium to make career-destroying claims with no evidence. She also retweeted this in the past few hours indicating she doesn't care if what she says is true.

How, precisely, do you interpret that tweet?
Because you're not doing it correctly

She didn't author the post but chose to retweet it indicates she doesn't care what her comments about Chris do to his career. That's how I see it. But sure, I guess someone could interpret it another way. Do realize I used "indicating" in my OP, meaning I am NOT claiming that's what she intended. It is only a guess.

"Indicating" does not mean guess or an opinion, you did state that as a fact. I think the phrase "Indicating to me" would have been more appropriate for what you apparently mean.

However, my question remains. How do you make the jump from "she doesn't care what her comments about Chris do to his career" to "she doesn't care if what she says is true"? How does that tweet indicate to you that she doesn't care if what she says is true?

Only problem is that youre not antifascistic if you act like fascists yourself and even label people who arent your enemies as your enemies, just because you need enemies to exist.

That's literally the only reason why Trump has ever mentioned antifa - he needs enemies to exist and he wants you to think that people who speak out against him are real fascists. They're not, he is.

1) No one ever says "all white males are neo-nazis." If you're hearing this, you need to listen more carefully. It's not what's being said, but it's what so many hear. This is why it's frequently said that white males are fragile - because so many of us hear a criticism and put the word "all" in front of it. I can separate myself from the complaints, most of which have a lot of validity

Would you say the same for the statement "black males are criminals"? Hey, no one's saying all black males, so it's not racist, right?

I agree with most of what you said - wtf_man appears to have learned everything he knows about this subject from conservative/nationalist talking heads complaining/lying about it. However, there are limits. Obviously the second statement is much stronger and has a lot of history behind it, but this sort of phrasing can be indicative of the same flawed way of thinking. I don't have a lot of time for people who's complaints are consistently of this nature because I think it indicates the same us-and-them mentality that the worst of the opposite view have.

Having said that, and as I've said before, the white male victim complex that has become so common in the last few years is remarkably pathetic. I do hope no one feels that they're the victim of anything because I said that...

Wow some of you guys. He's accusing Twitter of "shadow-banning conservatives" to secretly hide their posts, systematically censoring opposing viewpoints, and totally "ignoring" lawful complaints of repeated abusive behavior.

Unless you're living under a rock, everyone knows the shenanigans of twitter, FB, & Google.

Yes, who hasn't heard of the assorted liars and fools who are so entitled that they cry about censorship when the preferential treatment they have been receiving isn't enough for them. And it never will be enough to make snowflakes like you happy, which is one reason why you shouldn't be indulged.
