whatís worse: the steam controller touchpad or the new 3ds trackpoint?

the steam controllerís touchpads work extremely well, the problem was never with the build quality or the functionality; people just didnít like the design

buy an 8BitDo SN30 Pro+

if i buy minecraft now does that shitstain neckbeard incel get any money?

no, he sold out and now spends his time tweeting racially. Microsoft gets all the money.

also you want to buy the java version which is moddable, not the microtransaction-ridden Windows app store version.

Are there any mods that are like the old industrial craft mods where you build machines but that are updated for the new versions of minecraft? Last time I checked all the mods were still on v1.8 or something

all the mods are more or less still on 1.12 because 1.13 completely reworked how water functions (blocks can now be wet, meaning you can have plants and whatnot in water) and the primary third-party modding API decided to rewrite from scratch for 1.13 since Mojang has also been migrating the game from hardcoding everything to having actual (properly namespaced) assets stored in data files

oh, if you want the Factorio experience there's things like Thermal Expansion for machinery & item pipes and Applied Energistics for automation (this one is wild, you build mini-factories that can take certain inputs and produce certain outpus and then teach the mod the dependency graph to use your different mini-factories to assemble the sub-components for your final product)

I haven't really built super complicated machinery but as I understand it all of that can be done in the base game except turning feathers into arrows. unless you want the meat and feathers sorted separately, there doesn't seem to be a base part that can do that

no, you can build item sorters with some bullshit involving hoppers and redstone and some way of moving items around (either flowing water or a chest minecart)

this is tricky because the game doesn't already have an uncontrollable making GBS threads mechanic so you can't just do a straight texture swap

I read an entire article about how people that actually enjoyed Fallout 3 and 4 seem to have universally done this. They're very good exploration games with weak plots, so whoever ditches the plot first has the most fun.

New Vegas was more liked because you could stick to the guided story part more and still enjoy it.

Yeah, Elder Scrolls games are good for just wandering and seeing what you find and generally having a good time.

New Vegas had a really good plot with choices that matter, but in order for the choices to matter all your options had to be ambiguously lovely which means the game is mostly a downer.

windows gamepad support outside of the xbox controller is very bad as is their bluetooth stack. there is software that makes the playstation controllers show up as xinput devices, but in proper windows fashion it involves going to message boards and downloading weird 3rd party software that installs a service and takes over the bluetooth device so it can't be used with anything else

just use Steam OP

the problem is PC mods can do way more poo poo to the game files than the console mods and unless the windows store versions start letting you modify all the files rather than just adding new files then it really limits what you can do.

yeah, the good Elder Scrolls mods require DLL injection to extend the game engine

kinda funny that theres no first party mac port for skyrim, you're supposed to use steams wine or dual boot

i mean it works fine but still
Proton doesn't work on Macs. The funny thing is that if you look at their revision control history, it once did, but they removed it before release.

Which in retrospect was the correct decision since Apple dropped 32-bit support entirely and running 32-bit applications requires turning off Gatekeeper and relying on undocumented syscalls.

There's a lot of manipulation of the steam marketplace. "Asset flip" games in particular just involve buying pre-made assets for Unity or whatever, adding in a ton of achievements/trading cards, and selling the game for like $.50 with some sort of anime or porn-y name/store page.

the weird thing is that this has spread to the PlayStation and the Switch with e.g. Hentai vs. Evil

uncheck the adult games option in your store preferences, I think if your account is old enough it got turned on automatically when the option was introduced and then they changed to be off by default for new accounts
