The trad games community outside of SA is the single most toxic community I have ever seen, and I'm including the DOTA thread.

Worse than CSGO? Because that "community" is a toxic train wreck, probably worse than little kids screaming on the mic in Call of Duty.

They said it's now just inside the LA border I think. So it's at least cheaper on a per sq ft basis.

Another patch. These are pretty small and not really worth noting so I may stop transcribing to the thread until they release some gameplay fixes of note. It's nice that they're hammering out crash bugs so quickly, but nobody aside from testers really cares.

2.0.0d Patch Notes

Hangar Module Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where the Hangar elevator was not working and would cause the client to crash when attempting to use it to go to Crusader.

Social Module Fixes (actually PU)
  • Fixed an issue where players could not fire FPS weapons in or around Cry-Astro.
  • Fixed several issues with Quantum Travel involving collision and nearby stations causing malfunctions or false errors.
  • Particle effects have received a performance pass, particularly around thrusters and engines.
  • Fixed an issue where the Constellation would remain in a partial Quantum Travel state if the pilot left his chair mid-QT.
  • Fixed several server-side crashes in Crusader.
  • Fixes have been focused around crashes that involve ship spawn, destruction and server clean-up of specific events.
  • Fixed several client-side crashes in Crusader.
  • Fixed a crash that would occur when players attempted to return to the hangar from Crusader.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate the game in its stable state when it comes to enjoyability of gameplay?

At best I have played for maybe 15 minutes before a crash, so I'm not sure I'm really qualified to answer that. That said, it's quite fun but appears to be extremely content limited. The game right now is spawn ship, fly to station, engage pirates, get out and go inside to hit widget. Repeat. That's... more or less it. No way to earn credits or ships, no point to the missions. It's quite expansive in terms of space and there's a lot of neat ship widgets to look at, but it is more of a tech toy than a functional game. I would say it's an 8 out of 10 for a platform to build a game on, but probably only a couple-hour time waster if you're looking for something to get absorbed in.

Actually, a lot of other sites are obsessed with SA. In the online tabletop gaming world, SA is known as a hive of SJW thought that is trying to destroy gaming.

Is this the consensus at AdeptiCon? I'm thinking of going next year. I'll have to go incognito (as if I would ever admit to anyone that I post on this loving forum).

I predict they are going to wait as long as humanly possible to introduce earning persistent credits in-game because that is going to severely impact funding. If they somehow actually are sticking to their budget, it would be at least several months after 100 mil.

It feels like it- first attempt tonight and I was able to play a solid 20 minutes before I crashed out. Flew to a station, turned on a commlink, killed some pirates, got a new mission that took me to a random asteroid field and then black screen. Feels much better.

Naval action is an alpha that began June 17, 2013 with the old, tattered remnants of PotBS. They have like 7 devs working on it.

They released a patch (9.0) yesterday:

admin posted:

What's important:
Glorious game breaking bugs have most likely been added
Port battles added (Capitals, Regional Capitals and Free Towns are uncapturable - see the list)
Admiralty orders added to events: as a foundation for the admiralty store and fame points (or admiralty points)
Honor kill requirements are temporarily disabled due to popular demand. They will come back stronger and improved taking into account your feedback.
Open map events foundations added: Sail around and sometimes you will find an even just for you. System is rudimentary and will act as a basis for future development of variability and epic battles on the OW.
Bots ship variety returned
Teleport now works only to Capitals
Pre-Port battle anti griefing mechanics introduced. You cannot attack vessels or groups that have BR 5x higher than yours. If you are attacking a group of ship stationed together their combined BR is taken into account. Frigate supposedly wont attack 5 santisimas sailing close to each other.

This ignores the fixes as well.


fake edit: The removal of HKs, thank god.


second fake edit: Just pointing out how non-revolutionary, non-groundbreaking, slow, and horribly designed state the game is in without bringing up Elite.
