Re: Re Twitter

A Roguelike could be done now, with modification to the code. Generate the dungeon block the player is on, then generate all surrounding dungeon blocks. Only pick "full" dungeon blocks, not "connecting" dungeon blocks. That still leaves random underground cities, which would be a whole entire featur...

Re: Which engine for a new Daggerfall game?

Unity has the best GUI among the ones I've tried, and is the easiest to expand among those, AFAICT. OTOH, it's also the priciest, overall, since you *need **plugins with it, and a subscription doesn't get you access to the source code. * Technically, theoretically, you don't; but practically, you do...

Re: Other Elder Scrolls

Yeah, I fear ES6 won't have skills at all, just perks. There's a simple shortcut, here, though. Bethesda's in-house games follow one after the other, as far as general mechanics go. Watch Starfield. Whatever types of systems it's released with, will almost certainly go into ES6. And if it's a shallo...

Re: Other Elder Scrolls

I have some hopes, around certain released info. Of course, we all know how well Bethesda's pre-release announcements match the released games. So anyway, if the release info at the last E3 is correct: 1) Bethesda Game Studio just recently went from 30 employees to 200 employees. That should result ...

Re: Interkarma, are you planing to write some novels ?

I would like to contribute a drama: "How Unity made me lose my mind (countless times)..." The trick is to write your own game engine. Then you can be driven insane by writing your own game engine, but if you finally finish, it'll fit all your own neurosis, so you can drive yourself crazy when you r...

Re: Microsoft Acquire GitHub

Standard Microsoft. If you don't have the talent or technology yourself, acquire it.

A bad thing? ...Could be. More likely, some good, some not-so-good.

Re: Elite: Dangerous

Anyone else see the article about Google and LG's new VR screen prototype? Around twice the pixel density should help reduce the screen-door effect, and higher FPS is good, too. https://www.engadget.com/2018/05/25/google-and-lg-display-have-made-the-highest-resolution-vr-screen/ If that article repr...

Re: Conversation bug

Nah don't worry worry about it mate. I'm happy to have it in place. We're all about continuous incremental improvement here. :) It's like the old saying about "How do you walk around the world?" Well, first you get a row-boat... ...Well, the original said something about "One step at a time.", but ...

And now I'm not sure what to do, for an entirely different reason. :D

Re: Elite: Dangerous

Did not learn combat. Did get blown up several times. Decided to go back to hauling cargo. In the meantime, months of computer trouble. Did some cargo hauls today, got some money. The commodities market is still not very useful, AFAICT - You'll easily make more money playing missions. Which is sort-...
