Darks, I take it you're in North America? I'm in Euroland but for a Coop server that might be ok...hopefully your closer to the East Coast than West

Yes, sorry dude, I'm west coast in San Diego. but the server will be up 24/7 so you can get on and off as you please.

And this is going to be one of those pay monthly services for the server. So it will be online all the time unless I need to make a configuration change and reboot it. which that doesn't take but a min.

Own this game and will be running a dedicated server for Coop. So anyone that wants to play it on my server just let me know. Once the game goes live I will be renewing my server.
Not sure if I'll have shaken my Battletech addiction by then, but I'd like to give it a go on a CoOp server.

when it goes live, on the 8th I'm sure there will be a posting here on Blues, Ill let you guys know how to contact me to get access.

I mentioned earlier that I will be using mods. The server has the mods installed, but you guys will need to also go to the workshop and download those same mods. and they have to be in the same order as the servers. It will show you so its not that hard to set them up.

Showing that to make cash you only need marketing and zero game... great

LOL, yep. it will also be the fastest game ever to die.

So glad that beta came out, it saved me 60 dollars. I saw this game for what it was when I played it. Beautiful looking water and effects, best I have ever seen, but its an empty shell of a game.

just let me know. the games been on sale at times. thats when I bought it. its a nice looking game and the map is really big. lots to do and explore.

Did one of the events in the game thats like a raid, was pretty nice, fought a big snake spitting poison at us at the end. Had some interesting puzzles to that you had to do to open up other areas.


I've heard that other players can destroy your forts while you're offline. What are your thoughts on that, and is fort destruction toggleable?

Yes it is, and I dont play PVP, only Coop. so my server when its up will be strictly PVE and Coop. all fun and exploration.

And yea, I dont care for that kind of stuff. Which is why I dont ever do pvp.

And I will be running a few mods on this server too. mods that increase the stacking of items, removing durability and a few other things that for me make the game more enjoyably.

Liked the game, it was a lot of fun, and the new combat they added is really good now.

Cant wait to see the final version.

Cool beans. If I take the plunge I'll do that.

Just opening the Steam store these days has me wonder if I fell into a time warp thing and I'm back in the early 90s. I'm sick and tired of it. If this is the omen of the future of PC gaming, my gaming days will soon be over.

No kidding dude, I feel the same way. all these low end crap games being pushed on the front page. Ugh!!

So, after many years of working on Diablo and this is the best they could come up with in terms of game play? Some old assed looking game from the early 90s. Okay!!!

I was hoping to see something that resembled a newer up-to-date Diablo style game, not this crap.

Dravnt wrote on Apr 24, 2018, 23:19:
So does this mean they've "remastered" the controls? I got Dark Souls 2, played it for a minute or two and immediately turned it off. I don't play console games and I don't use the game pad so for me, Dark Souls was not very well optimized when it came to controlling the game.

That is a very poor excuse for the game. You dont release a game on the PC and not give it proper mouse and keyboard support. this is what drives PC game players insane and gives games that are ported over a very bad reputation.

And on top of that, if you are going to release an enhanced edition of the game and then charge people for it too, then it damn well better have those issues with the mouse and keyboard fixed.

You can disable most or even all of the camera shenanigans in the options so it's a non-issue (unlike what those brainless steam reviewers imply).
As for game expansion we know that if the game is successful, they'll add more content based on the game engine, exactly like they did with their Shadowrun series. Having the FASA authors and even the game creator onboard really helps...
It's really the game i have been waiting for nearly 30 years now... although for some people it might be slow paced, it's as good as it gets for a board game adaptation, and i'm ok with the slower pace, reminds me of Warlords or HOMM..

Thats what I mentioned earlier in my post about the camera. Turn if off and the game feels and play so much better.

My gaming machine is 5 years old at this point, so I'll let y'alls know how it runs.
Mine's 5 years old too. Runs fine on 1080p, max. details. But the game regulary stops working and minimizes to a small, inactive bar. I still hear sound, but its not recoverable, i had to kill the task.

Aside from that ... the gameplay is what they promised. Tabletop rules with slight adjustments and changes. They got that right, now on to fixing bugs.

Have not had any of those issues. In fact, the game for me hasn't crashed once or had any pausing issues. I'm also installed on an SSD. The games been fine for me.

I had to turn off all the camera bouncing. That was driving me insane. I like a game like this where I control the camera as I see fit. And its been working really well without all that camera shifting going on.

My only real complaint is there is little to much XCom feel to this. The pilots getting hurt taking weeks to heal up. You have to have a large stable of pilots hired or your going to have issues down the road.

If only it had co-op.

Yea, tell me about it. I know Mitch Gitelman, I've been after him for years to put Coop in Mech Commander and Battletech. I just dont understand his reluctance adding it. They did say that it might be something they consider at a later date. Lets hope that means an add on or patching later. The games been a lot of fun.

Some people are whining about performance on steam, but I'm willing to bet they have shitty pcs.

I'm not sure how much more content can be crammed into one game.
I'm all for more events and stuff, but espionage abilities would be a good start... better battle resolution and interface for sure... better research tree management, better pirate mechanics, etc.

Stellaris is still incredibly boring, imo. I have put in 50 hours and the game really drags in spots and some stuff just feels under developed. I prefer Distant Worlds far more than Stellaris, but I'm open minded and will keep at Stellaris... one of these DLC will eventually make the game fun.

Yea, I felt the same way, its a fun game at times, but yea, drags on and on. I tried playing this Coop wit ha friend. this is where to many of us that games flawed. if you want to allied with some one from the start of the game. You have to figure out where they are and try and travel to them to get a dialog going and then ally yourself. that was dreadfully crappy.

They need to make the game so its easily done with a friend from the start where you are allied and can see each other.

I really prefer how Sins of the Solar Empires plays compared to this. Its such a shame that StarDock hasn't seen the viability of Sins and what it really could evolve into . To me, Sins is till the best Real time strategy space game out there. But Stellaris does fill some of that void.

It really annoys me to no end that Stardock is sitting on this game. So much potential for part 2 just going to waste.
