the lights are easy to make, but i can't figure out moving parts...
for whatever reason Spintires/Mudrunner sometimes don't like my .x files when i add animated stuff to them and they just crash.
for example, in Spintires the antenna on the 4Runner works fine (and seems to work ok when importing it to Mudrunner), but when i tried adding the same antenna with the same bones etc. to the Pathfinder, the game crashed
I game exclusively on PS4. I started out on PC but had to stop cause it gave me terrible neck pain whereas the console controller does not. (I was a database admin and network support for 20 years, that's where the trouble started)
Also, I much prefer sitting in my living room recliner while playing vs an office chair in the home office.
The biggest thing is not having to wait on winblows to boot up and run virus scanning for hours and install updates and generally waste my time!
all those arguments don't really speak for console...
- you can use wireless controllers on PC and
- connect your PC to your TV so you can sit in your recliner and play too (plus you can actually play in real 4K, not upscaled, on your giant 4K TV)
- my PS4 updates at least as frequently as my PC, so waiting for updates is not really an argument
- my virus scanner (if i ever even use it) runs for about 2-4 minutes, if i do a deep search (which is like twice a year) i let it run overnight anyway
Same same. When I was younger and lived in one room and did everything on PC it made sense. Still the frustration of constant tweaking, os management, performance and stability issues, plus the constant upgrade arms race was a pain. Once I had my own apartment, I would rather sit on my sofa with my friends and play on my large TV with a beer or a cuppa. Console performance got good enough to play similar games to PC and playabiliy performance was strictly controlled / guaranteed. Some of these factors have changed on both sides since then but even if PCs are cheaper and more stable now, I still prefer sitting on my sofa, pushing a button and playing on my 60 inch TV within a matter of seconds. I’m not arguing one is better than the other, they both have their pros and cons depending on personal circumstances or preferences. In the case of Mudrunner, lack of mod support on consoles is a major con, but not enough to make me invest unnecessarily in a PC, or move off my couch XD
same for you, i tweaked my PC once (i'm not into overclocking so i just set it up so it runs stable at decent temperatures), windows 10 basically manages itself, performance issues (as if consoles have good performance these days lol), i built my PC 5 years ago and it still runs new games on high/ultra, hardware upgrade cycles are 5-10 years (depending on how much you spend initially), which is around the same for consoles.
the sofa argument doesn't count (see above)
the only argument i can see where you have a point is price, hardware prices have gone unnecessarily high in the last few years, especially GPUs and RAM, but they've calmed down a bit
I would especially love to see screenshots or a video of a truck going through mud. So far we've seen very little mud in Mud Runner 2, kind of ironic isn't it.
and snow, and most of all night, i really want to see improvements in the dynamic lighting, but i have doubts they're going to do much about it
also hopefully they show night in motion, i want to see if the lighting is actually dynamic now and fitting for a current era game...
@chaton so when can we hope for some actual screenshots and videos? is there still an NDA/embargo on press releases? i can't find any articles about it apart from ones that just show the photos from the event from twitter
- the forum's mobile page header image
- steam workshop:
- the videos on the steam shop site
- also the videos and some steam pages still have the old social media site names/URLs (i.e. DLC page)
- the forum links on top (to the right of the header image) also still have old URLs
i'll keep you updated if i find more
