Re: Net Neutrality

First things first: the internet is an utility, no value in itself but to provide everyone else with functionality they need to have their devices and services work. Like electricity, like water. I disagree. Just because something is a desirable public good does not automatically qualify it as a pub...

Re: Net Neutrality

I also find it interesting how you always feel the need to stress the "completely legal business practices". currently legal doesnt mean "moral" or "should stay legal" :P I stress it because 1) limiting state interference with legal behavior is a good principle, and 2) the pro-net neutrality case i...

Re: Net Neutrality

a corporation can't bust down your door if you don't do what they say UNLESS YOU'RE PLAYING INDEPENDENCE WAR 2, THE GREATEST SPACE SIM EVER MADE* Darn you. Now I'm gonna have to play that game again this week. XD *So far. Pfft. Apparently you've never played Syndicate. (Or so I hear; I haven't play...

Re: The other side of exploration and the same kind of different destroying the sense of wonder

I've been a little surprised that few people (if any) have suggested that the "infinite universe" is something that could be canned for a v1 release. It only got a few votes on Flat's poll (mine was one). I know that it's kind of baked into fabric of LT as a concept, but if, in the process of makin...

Re: Net Neutrality

This will not happen I agree with you on this point, Flatfingers. And to be clear, this comment of mine didn't carry any weight of "yay!" or "boo!" It's just a simple observation that the GOP-controlled House is very unlikely to vote as the Senate did. I disagree with you on the rest, but you know ...

Re: Pine

It's probably a bit too early still to look for a map of the Pine world. I think they're still updating a lot of the world-y content of the game.

Re: Net Neutrality

Now we just need it to get through the House of Representatives (where they need all democrats and 22 republicans)... and then Trump. This will not happen, nor IMO should it. Ending the FCC's two-year arrogation of power to itself -- by magically defining broadband as a "utility" -- does not leave ...

Re: The other side of exploration and the same kind of different destroying the sense of wonder

With the latest dev log talking about exploration, I just wanted to mention a common problem with procedurally generated games, and a simple (though not necessarily fast to implement) solution. Procedurally generated games have a limited number of tilesets, effects, futures, and mechanics within wh...

STALKER

So, years later, and after all kinds of legal and extra-legal weirdness, comes word that STALKER 2 is back on. Touting a "2021" date on its otherwise empty web page (as described by VentureBeat) , GSC Game World boss Sergiy Grygorovych mentioned today on his Facebook page. Fingers crossed? And now I...

Re: Objects In Space

Wish you could see some of the universe around you, though. Doesn't look like you can, unless I missed it. Maybe the developer, instead of allocating time to rendering pretty views of space, spent that time creating NPC avatars that walk around? I can definitely see that chewing up an enormous amou...
