"And we're done! Phew, great job getting this building up so quickly guys!"
"Umm, boss, we kinda forgot to put an elevator in."
"Shit! Just take out those closets and put it in there."

There is no way on this planet that that is deemed acceptable by ANY fire marshall in ANY country. Even North Korea would balk at that.


This is in France Seen something very similar there in what was a day-hostel (but 6 stories high)... have to assume they do not have any building safety standards.

I do the same thing.. I vary and even mix various sorts and the taste constantly changes through that.. makes you appreciate if you find a blend that tastes really well (to me non of the standard blends taste well).. but it's depending on my mood, so more variation means better tasting coffee....

I contracted on Civ III back in 2001- it would be amazingly awesome if they released an expansion for it 15 years later, but I think we used 3dsmax4... not sure if that's Windows 10 compatible.

Unless something has changed or I am slowly going crazy you could render the units (if that is what you are talking about) however you wanted. It was still more or less sprite based. You could create 3d models and use those as the basis for sprites, but what you ended up using was just PCX files w/ transparency ini files, and flc files IIRC. Flc was an autodesk format, but they didn't lock it down like .max. Again, this is just what I remember from playing around with modding the game so I could be off after so many years.

Those sprites were made by rendering the 3d models + animations though with very specific guidelines, and recreating those is like remaking the entire art assets. And since then max format changed considerably...

What you see as modder is the output of the render pipeline, the actual art assets were 3d models that were then polished up post export. Recreating that is near impossible even with the source files... so an addon for civ 3 would be pretty much impossible to actually do nowadays. well... at least if you wanted matching art styles.

I played the last 3 games a ridiculous, almost embarrassing amount and loved every damn minute of it. More Mass Effect can NEVER be a bad thing!
Long as they don't offer the 3 coloured endings and give everyone a hearty "fuck you" over it, I'll be happy with a new ME game.

tbf there was the hearty fuck you and then the mea culpa with the revised ending and free ending DLCs. doesn't make up for the shit ending, but hopefully they learn from that nonsense this time around.

Or you can get the ending mod from the nexus.. only ending I could accept as canon. ^^

To be honest I'd be more amazed if any of those source files still existed to begin with. Kudos to you for working on that game btw ,)

It's waaaay too heavily tilted towards rogues, specifically rape ambush gangs.

I'd be totally down with fun shootouts against rogues. But, that basically never occurs due to the mechanics which overwhelmingly favor ambush ganks.

So yeah, I don't bother going in the Gank Zones anymore, it's just absurd.

Not like you couldn't have predicted this though I mean that was even shown during their very first pseudo narrated gameplay video

But even when it came out, Oblivion wasn't the best looking game. Far from it. But it was one of the biggest. Burnout Revenge, which came out the same time, was much prettier, but had so much less going on.

In my opinion, the forests in Oblivion were better than they are now in Skyrim. I realize that the screenshots below do a poor job of comparing both games, and that my mind may be playing tricks, but I feel that in general, the Oblivion forests that I remember were denser and the trees/grass fuller.

Oblivion
Skyrim

Just a couple of things.

1. Oblivion takes place in a lusher area, so you might expect that it'd be greener and fuller.

2. The screenshot you posted looks like the modded forest. Look at this image comparing vanilla Oblivion to modded Oblivion.

I'm pretty sure that that's a vanilla Oblivion screenshot. It's one of the first screenshots released for the game. Maybe there was a downgrade after that, but I feel that Oblivion delivered back then.

Yeah, it's one of the 2 "forests" screenshots Bethesda released close to the release of the game to hype us: Official screenshots

Forest in Oblivion looks like that when you push grass density up and enable optional shadows though... but not on consoles obviously.

As for Skyrim, I thought the game looked incredibly ugly.. but graphics aren't everything

I believe they have mentioned possible new technology in the past and then still reverted back to their common engine. Just saying. 2017? I think his words sound well past 2017 even.

Well if they develop like any big studio this should already have been in (back-burner) development since Skyrim (2011). If they decided a new engine is needed, this would certainly explain why for Fallout 4 they pushed GameBryo to it's last legs despite saying they work on a new engine, since realistically there would not be any other way for Fallout 4 to have been released otherwise... developing an entirely new custom engine with that kind of feature set could easily take 7 years. So yeah. Probably not even 2017. But what is damn sure is that if they take that time for a new engine it will be something that blows our minds. Since it would mean they need some kind of feature that is not existent nor possible in gamebryo (likely AI / threading / world related)

All that said, as long as this isn't a MMO I am hyped.

The good thing about game announcements with Windows 10 is that I can easily tell which game I will never buy ;p

While I do have Windows 10 (but I use W7) I will never support this exclusivity nonsense that has marketing and not technical reason.

Considering it's not coming out this year and they say "it's just going to take technology and time we don't necessarily have right now" I would assume yes. New engine for such a vast game project could very well mean it won't even come 2017

I don't think they've got a well written script here. Looks more like they just wanted to make something you could call a story and get a bunch of action scenes going.

Didn't they sell maps as DLC for the first game before they gave it all away? If so there is no surer way to fracture a community.

Considering the player numbers on PC for this that made zero difference, as there was no community left they could fracture. The game is deader than dead and that it already wast a mere month after release. Biggest fail buy I ever did when it comes to MP shooters.

And the problem wasn't so much the gameplay, which was fine, the problem was the god awful engine and netcode/hosting system.

Everyone working there is a grade A asshole apparently and these people deserve jail time at the very least.

Jesus Christ, dude, chill the fuck down. 95% of the people working for Gawker are just people who reports on news and write articles in their given field. Jalopnik employs some of the best car writers in the business. What do they have to do with that piece of shit AJ Daulerio??

You mean "decent writers" like those on Gizmodo?

http://gizmodo.com/jill-bahring-i-was-not-assaulted-by-jacob-appelbaum-1781684838

Compare what they quote with the original statement (something the so called journalist should have done himself, without hiding the facts)

https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/2858345-Statement-by-JB-for-IMMEDIATE-RELEASE.html

Notice that the entire rape story was INVENTED BY GIZMODO
Also notice the article writer does not apologize

Yeah, "quality journalism" right there, eh?

Also to be fair, Jalopnik IS a decent site, and it would make me sad if it were to disappear, but chances are it won't anyway. Btw, I am calm

With "these people" I mean the ones responsible for these "damned lies" at Gawker and Gizmodo obviously

Even better, the OTHER women who were allegedely assaulted as claimed by Gizmodo responded as well

https://twitter.com/cfarivar/status/741634572673110016

So an entire career and life destroyed by Gizmodo based on nothing but lies. ~.~
