  1. There was nothing passive aggressive in his original post until you decided to come and play the grumpy old dog who knows it all as usual. I'll leave it there though out of respect for the Pimps otherwise I'd have a lot more to say to the issue but that would be exactly what you are looking for, a fight. One would think at your age and gaming experience you'd be a bit more tolerant towards people who experience problems with a game and come to the forum to vent, we all have done it.
  2. Hopefully you get a conversation with the mods about your passive aggressive behavior on these forums over the years..
  3. So I decided to try alpha 19 and wanted to give my first impressions of what I saw playing up until day 24. The good: 1. The new sky and atmosphere look and feel great, I really like it. 2. The current loot system felt good although I was skeptical at first but there's a catch, I played with 300% xp and I grinded zombies. Grinding zombies non stop is no better than spamming stone axes imo. Playing on normal xp settings must be awful but it was okay with 300% xp as progression felt much slower than in previous versions but not too slow. 3. I like the candy, it adds
  4. While you are shopping i thought I'd throw my case in here for you. Researched cases for months and ended up here. Looks great, MASSIVE AIR FLOW, lots of room and just all around the best case I ever had. The price is a joke for what you get. http://www.phanteks.com/Eclipse-P600s.html Also, I ended up getting the Rog Strix 2060 super and it's a beast, highly recommended.
  5. I've had horde night turned off since early Alpha 18. Jail doors have been removed, spikes have been removed, polished steel has been removed, under ground is no longer an option and the super strength zombies chew pretty much through everything else within seconds. Toothy and similar bases are pointless now. Solar panels are not obtainable unless you get the highest barter skill and even if you manage to pay the ridiculous price for them, the vultures will tear them down in no time so if you go the electronics route, be prepared to grind for gas and tons of parts for repairs. Late
  6. I always play on 120 minute days, I have to have the feeling that the day is worth something. Anything less is much too short for me and I've been doing this since I started playing way back when.
  7. I expect there to be a chance right from the start. Knowing what I will get and when takes the fun out of looting. That's what the item quality levels are for, to limit you from getting the best from the start. Now we have two gates on looting, item levels and game stage. This takes away the feeling that you could get lucky and find something nice and takes a big chunk of the excitement out of looting.
  8. Since I currently have the same opinion as Scyris on this alpha, I thought I'd throw in a counter argument. Below is a post from myself about a previous alpha. " I have to agree. The new blocks and textures, the painting and all the POI upgrades in general look amazing and really make exploring much more fun than it used to be. Mods added a lot to the game, the item customization, new weapons..there's just so much I could go on for days. The game is looking and feeling great, having a blast with it!" Just some food for thought.
  9. If you start the game from the "big picture mode" in steam the controller works fine, at least it did for me in A18.
  10. Well seeing as to how the streamers got it a week early I couldn't play and by the time that week was done, I had seen all I need to see. EVERY person I watched and I watched them all a bit, had an inventory full of them within like an hour so I find your statement hard to believe or maybe you just had bad luck or good luck depending on how you feel about the thing. I was never a fan of it since I started playing around Alpha 8 or so. Even if my experience were to be similar to yours what would I get instead, stone tools? I'm sorry, that doesn't do it for me. I'm bored before I st
  11. I voted 1 because as is, I can't find the desire to even start a game after seeing so many blunderbusses on the Youtubers play through. That said I don't keep up with the dev diary so I had no idea what future plans were and after reading them now I find them very interesting. The reason I voted option 1 is because the question was "how do you feel about the CURRENT loot progression" and in the current state it is in, I can't bring myself to play it. I think it was a bad idea to release this in the current state it is in because we have to live with it for quite some time.
  12. Yeah this was pretty much my experience as well. Just got a new card and was looking forward to playing the new alpha and was instantly turned off by the performance. On top of what you mentioned I had some weird light that was around me that was showing when I moved the mouse, as if I had a torch or something. That combined with what I saw on YT made me decide to wait for a later alpha. I was already on the edge with alpha 18 and I can't even describe why, things just feel off. Not many new blocks for builders Bad loot system Screamers every 5 minutes while mining (too
  13. I haven't even played A19 yet and will probably wait for A20. Was playing space engineers as it came out and nothing I saw pulled me over. I started A19 and had some weird gfx flicker (RTX 2060 Super) and with the other things I saw that annoyed me such as this topic here and the lack of love towards builders, I just didn't feel up to it. I watched the dev streams and think they are really cool, nice chance to get to know the guys and get an insight on the development of this awesome game. This isn't the first time I skipped an alpha and this isn't me complaining as I strongly bel
