Hello /games/

It has recently come to our attention that the users of /games/ are seeking a reliable method of communication for online play and general conversation about games. I am unsure if anyone is aware, but, there currently exists and unoffical matrix room specifically for this located at: https://matrix.to/#/!YWrRUKLasccyNpfbue:matrix.org?via=matrix.org

If anyone is interested in gaming discussion, or, online discourse please feel free to join. That is all. Thank you~

Speedrunning.

I feel as if despite the fact that speedrunning is so popular nowadays, it seems like at the end of the day, there really isn't much skills that you really gained from it, nor did you really artistically influence the game in a way that minecraft building creators, or whatever would have achieved. I mean there is playing a whole variety of games, or just trying to see as much of a game that you can enjoy for yourself but it seems to me that speedrunning feels kind of hollow in a lot of ways to me. It's just doing the same shit over and over again for little benefit. At least with exercise, you gain muscular strength, but what is the light at the end of the tunnel for speedrunners?

Dutch Van Der Linde

Was he based? It seems like he was a flawed individual that did his best until he went mad. By the time of RDR2 the gang was already well past it's prime. To me Hosea seemed more so the wise one of the two. Sure Arthur understood the Pinkertons were pawns of the capitalists. Nonetheless he still thought the gang were the bad guys, maybe worse than the capitalists. He particularly despised the usury practices of Strauss and Micah's killing of innocents but went along anyways. There's also the influence the fictional writer Evelyn Miller had on Dutch's supposed ideology. Funny enough Miller admits he's an urbanite hack in side missions and ends up killing himself in the last one. The anti-civilization ideology Arthur and i assume Dutch hold is hardly expanded upon but I'm sure there's real world examples of the era the developers drew from. Despite this their gang seems to be the most civilized out of the enemy ones encountered in the game. So what's the conclusion? Was he just a caricature of leftism the same way Reyes was in the first game or something else?

Lost and Found Games Edition

For all those oldie goldies, cartridges, CDs, and games that you remember but have since been lost to planned redundancy, discontinued product lines, sites being shut down, just generally losing it, or you only caught a glimpse of it before it was swept away and now are seeking it again. AKA you want a game found that you can no longer get or one you kinda only vaguely remember and need help finding the SAUCE.

I'll start it off: Before the 2012 remake there was a fan made version of XCOM; it had mid 2000s 3D top down graphics, was more grounded in irl military equipment in terms of looks and effects, entirely free, and was rebranded as something else which I have entirely forgotten and why I need help finding it since these days searching for "Xcom fan game" usually nets all the spinoffs since the 2012 remake(which is kinda garbo in my opinion) or Xenonauts. So does anyone know which game I'm talking about? I remember it was very oversaturated with the colour green if that's any help at all.

Collapse: A Political Simulator

Made by our favorite game developers, Kremlingames, the game will have you take on managing your own fictional country (called "Republic") right after the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union between 1992 and 2004. Diverting from the previous games' path, you will play not as the country's president, but as the leader of a party of your choosing. This means that you will be able to play as the opposition for the first time in a Kremlingames product.

You will get to shape the personality, sex and background of your party's leader as well as to be able to choose between seven different parties:
>the liberals
>the conservatives
>the social-democrats
>the "socialists"
>the communists
>the nazbols
>the fascists
Each of these parties are then divided between three different factions vying for power. You can go for a reformist or revolutionary path as the communists.
There are many other features, such as interactions with foreign powers, regional separatism, international integration, etc… I'm pretty intrigued by it tbh, I hope it won't be as hard and save-scummy as their previous games. It seems to be a better version of what Suzerain aims to be.


The game will release on tuesday the 23th.

Chess

I'm making this thread here, because the other boards are practically dead. If a mod chooses to move it to /hobby/, that's cool, I just wanted some exposure on /leftypol/.

As you might now, chess played a large role in the Soviet Union. They outright dominated the game for decades and it was commonly played ever since the inception of the union.

I think chess does possess the potential to develop and train the strategic thinking skills of players, if they abstract from the game and attempt to apply it to the real world.

But it's also a fun game. Because of that I made a /leftypol/ club on chess.com, which is a great website with a nice UI and plenty of resources to learn and improve at chess. I've been using it for months now and got far better at chess and I even do the puzzles on it for fun every day. The way the website is designed makes learning chess and improving really, really easy. Making an account is free and would be quick. I know this sounded like an ad, lol.

So, I'm inviting you comrades to start learning chess or improve whatever skill level you are at and join the /leftypol/ chess club. We could play against each other. Perhaps even organize tournaments. I think it would be really cool if we could get something like this going and make it the community wide hobby. If only 3 people join that would be good enough honestly.

Simulation Wargames (tabletop or otherwise)

This seems like a good topic for a /leftypol/ gaming thread since it is both autistic gaming discussion and actually has potential for a leftist development of strategy.

Maybe this would ideally be better suited for /hobby/ but as long as /games/ is more active seems sensible to just post anything related to games in any form here, like the chess thread or other tabletop.

I've recently been interested in the kind of "wargames" (broadly meaning military/political/strategic/policy simulation) that militaries, intelligence agencies, and consultant groups use to strategize and troubleshoot their plans. Personally this is interesting as far as I enjoy playing and designing strategy games. More generally, this seems like a good investment of time for leftists who are nerds who enjoy this shit anyway because it is a way to attempt to apply "gaming" to actual strategic considerations.

The best publicly available version of this I've seen that is also utilized by the aforementioned groups is Matrix Games, which is a very rules-lite and scaleable model that tries to remove constraining gameplay meta in favor of players debating what is within reason and what is not. Whether this makes for the most "fun" gameplay possible is besides the point, because the idea is to use the tabletop wargame format to explore the widest range of strategic possibilities, and establishing in-game advantages and victories based on serious discussion of what would be concievable under the given circumstances seems to be a good way to encourage thinking outside the box and considering various angles.

http://www.mapsymbs.com/wdmatrix.html#what

Some abbreviated info from the website:

<What are Matrix Games?

>Matrix games are different to normal Wargames and Role-Playing games. In a these games you compare lists of statistics and peer at complicated books of rules containing someone else's idea about what things are important, before rolling a dice. It takes a long time and can be very difficult to explain to a newcomer. Instead, in a Matrix Game you simply use words to describe why something should happen, the Umpire decides how likely it is, and you roll a dice. If you can say "This happens, for the following reasons…" you can play a Matrix Game.

<Game Arguments

>In a Matrix Game, actions are resolved by a structured sequence of logical "arguments". Each player takes turns to make an argument, with successful arguments advancing the game, and the player's position. There are a number of ways you can do this and each has their own strengths and weaknesses.

<Notes about Arguments

>The important thing to remember in a Matrix game is that Arguments can be made about anything that is relevant to the scenario. You can argue about your own personnel or about the enemy, the existence of people, places, things or events, the political leadership back home, the weather, plague, disease, public opinion, and you can even argue for changes in whatever rules you are using. With a bit of imagination, common sense and rational thinking, it is possible to present persuasive arguments as to what should happen in any scenario.
>When an Argument succeeds it remains in effect until another Argument stops it. This means that if you are Napoleon and succeed in Arguing that you march on Moscow, you will continue to move forward, every turn, until you get there - unless of course someone argues that you don't…

The Matrix Games website has some popular premade scenarios: http://www.mapsymbs.com/wdmatrix1.html

I'm still totally unsure about the actual details of play and potential variations, is anybody familiar with this kind of thing?

Are there any other kinds of wargames that serve as good strategic simulations that you know of/would recommend?

Whether they're "professional", tabletop, vidya, whatever I'm mostly just curious about games like this that (taking for granted that perfect "authenticity" isn't ever going to be possible) at least provide a strong basis for a meaningful familiarity with serious strategic considerations. It seems like reactionaries and too many leftists are satisfied with pretending that shit like paradox games or milsim shooters or w/e are representative of reality in any way and that there's no other way to engage with strategic hypotheticals outside of these products designed for consumption within strict ideological assumptions, while the world's powerful interests are using "game" tools that the dissident political milieus are probably more familiar with but completely ignore.

Let's talk about how we can fix that.

/gamedev/ - Game Development General (SHARE YOUR VIDEOGAME IDEAS ITT)

So I'm not an experienced game developer or anything, but I figured we should have a general dedicated to this sort of thing, especially since I'm interested to hear peoples' ideas on lefty-orientated videogames that would be cool for me to make.
I've been using Blender since I was 11 or 12 years old (I'm 20 now) so I'm pretty much at a level now where I can model any game asset I want. I'm also in school for Computer Engineering, and have been a hobby programmer since I was around 14 working with Python, C, and GLSL shaders, so I can script pretty much anything as well. I would say my main weaknesses when approaching a task like this are Sculpting, Spriting, and Painting, so to any drawfags/artfags with skills: I invite you to contribute on whatever projects we end up embarking on.

GETchan VN collaboration project

So our idea was as follows (as I understand what we discussed)

We want to make a VN in Ren'py because the software/coding is pretty easy.

moo_moo knows how to code python for the backend
hardkoba does nice sexy art for the characters
spurdo does 3d and 2d works and can possibly do the backgrounds and/or other design elements
caballo is a writer and can write the novel bit
pepe_pp does writing and some art and can assist with those
moo_moo also does music (electronic) so can handle that

Other people may want to contribute with their skills of course.

Plot concept:
Main character lives in present day Earth sadly because capitalism and the ongoing social collapse sucks.
He possibly idly signs some form agreeing to be part of some preservation experiment if he dies.
He then dies shortly afterward, either through suicide or through random accident/calamity
MC's brain is stored in a 'science chamber' (or whatever) at a university for research, either because he signed the forms or because he is special in some other way and was picked out. Eventually, his brain simply becomes a display piece/teaching aid for med students.
30-50 years later, the climate crisis comes to a head and capitalist society is destroyed due to resource shortages, wars, et cetera, some years later, the people take power globally and start the work of rebuilding society along communist lines.
150-200 years after our story starts, a team of scientists decides to use MC's brain in an experiment to attempt to resurrect him, possibly they have tried previously and his is the first time it has worked, or the project has never been tried before but a mad scientist at the university decides to try it on a whim with MC's brain.
After some time, MC's body is regrown and he awakes in a brave new world, with the last thing he remembers having been his death.
He is dazed and confused at first for obvious reasons and does not really know if he's alive or dead. Of course he is told what had happened but doesn't quite understand/believe it.
Eventually MC is up and moving around, and he is shown the brave new world by, most likely, the love interests.
The utopian abundance of the world actually convinces him moreso that he has gone to heaven/'the good place' and that nothing is really real.
That's really as far as we got, but MC has to deal with existential crises like whether anything is real, whether he is even the same person as the one he remembers being (due to consciousness stopping, etc), whether he fits in in this world and if he should have even been resurrected to begin with, and so on.

The world:
The world should be utopian communism, but will probably not call itself that due to entryism and not wanting to immediately put people off. MC will be amazed by the freedom and choice that people have, the lack of money, the fact that anyone can do basically whatever they want (within reason), and is both in awe and deeply alienated by the new society.
MC also finds it hard to fit in because social conventions have changed drastically, with people generally being much more communal, having more loose ideas of who owns what and sharing, people being more sexually open and less private in general, the commonness of polygamy, orgies, et cetera, and the lack of (as he sees it) personal boundaries and so on.
We have come to an impasse about the appearances of the people that surround MC. Some of us believe that it would be a society of largely mixed race, healthy and generally attractive looking people who put less emphasis on appearance due to the fact that appearances can be relatively easily changes/corrected/modified.
Others would prefer a world of diversity and sexual 'novelty' where people's bodies have been extensively modified to fit their personalities, with the physical form being a representation of the internal mind. People would be diverse, strange, and some would be transhuman (ie. possibly furries, elves, catgirls, or even more exotic thing). So, I guess we have to decide on that.

We also agreed that ideally the MC should be gender flexible (he/she/they) to player choice, but I have used he for simplicity.
Sex scenes would be enabled in the game put able to be disabled/skipped like many other VNs.
Ideally, there should be femboys in the game as romance options as well as women.

Anyways, I might have forgotten some things, but that's about as far as we got, I believe. Let's hope we stick with it and the project isn't just an idle idea that is thrown into the ether and forgotten!

Inspirations:
Everlasting Summer (commie imageboard VN with time travel elements)
Looking Backward 1887-2000 by Edward Bellamy (book where person wakes up century later into communism, comes to see it as a utopia, and gets a cute waifu to go along with it, as a comment on the society the author lived in).

Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead.

Hi /games/. I'm looking for a few volunteers to create a leftist post-apocalyptic community in C:DDA both to discount the Hobbesian idea of war of all against all and show that humans are communal creatures as well as showcasing leftist ideas to a large, international group of gamers.

No Technological Experience or Knowledge is required, mostly just an active imagination, possibly some writing and an interest in having real leftist examples in video games.

If you do not currently play c:dda but would like to understand the other factions that currently exist in the game, read:
https://cataclysmdda.org/design-doc/#world

It's important to mention that the two currently most developed factions are a capitalist one which broadly speaking are free market capitalists, with some just wanting to make money whilst others are pure 'right libertarian' ideologues. The second being a faction which is the remnants of the old american state and seeks to unite the US back into the old USA. Patriots, Generals, beurocrtats, basically govt people and there patriot supporters.. rumored to have a good portion of the US fleet still active and just off-shore of somewhere preparing for a ground offensive.
.
These two groups are allies. This is significant as it allows for conflict with leftist organization and as we know Conflict Drives Plot.

Games which demand absolute mastery

Something I really respect about this game is that it makes the player squeeze absolutely every little bit of advantage out of its mechanics not just to master the game, but to beat the game at all. From the fact that changing ship speeds damages enemies from your ship exhaust, to contact damage from your gun pods, and even to crashing your ship into large enemies for massive damage at the cost of a power-up because they can't be defeated fast enough any other way, every little bit of mastery of this game's mechanics is required to successfully defeat its brutal second loop and win the game. A lot of games have massive depth that rewards advanced players, but very few of them require diving deep in order to win because the stage design requires it. Are there any other games that do this?

Minecraft Server

UPDATE

[b]Server is up. Server IP is: 54.39.95.135[/b]

[b]Server Name is: BunkerHell[/b]

MAKE SURE YOU LAUNCH MINECRAFT VIA THE CRACKPACK 3 MODPACK!
[b]https://ufile.io/37ru6kdy[/b]
You should be able to download them, extract and plop them into MultiMC.

I'm going to have a shitton of free time over the next few months and I'm thinking about hosting a new Leftypol Minecraft server. Had some experience back in the day hosting factions based servers on the mindcrack modpack. I'm a little rusty but I should be able to pick it all up again reasonably fast.

Right now I'm leaning towards a factions based server (maybe with factions maybe based on lefty ideologies, or people could just sort themselves into teams or w/e) a tech-y modpack based on PVP and a limited mapsize - ideally a large, continent sized island with limited resources and with borders around it so there is some competition for resources (hopefully creating incentive for political alliances and conflict). I'll try to find a plugin which allows physical territory claiming/restricts harvesting of resources on non territory so expanding, building outposts, trade between factions and etc would be encouraged. Nuclear power, high-tech weapons/defense & industry mods are of course a must. Hardcore food/agriculture mods may also be added so there is a need to diversify agriculture/food production and encourage large teams.

I'm willing to put down the money for a decent server and can probably maintain it for a while, possibly indefinitely although that all depends on interest in the idea.

Who here would be interested in a set up like this? If I can get a dozen or so people interested at first I'm willing to put the money and time in ASAP, although obviously I'd be willing to invest more money/time if the playerbase is larger. Server will ofc be free, no pay to win/eshop garbage & ideally open to pirated copies.

What the fuck is this shit?

Just played the first 30 mins or so, I guess I made my own bed by buying this game as one of apparently the few people that liked 'action Resident Evil', which this is I guess a repudiation of, but it's the most hackneyed cliche shit. Wandering around a boring shithole at a snail's pace with random noises that you know won't mean anything, seeing generic gross/creepy things, then characters disappearing into nothingness the second you look away at a speed that you KNOW is impossible and is just utter cliche horror shit, everything is paint by the numbers utterly. And yeah, 'it's scary', I guess so, but I also expected a game, not just the game equivalent of a trashy horror flick. Clearly I shouldn't have bought this game but I feel I was misled by the hordes of people saying how amazing this is.

Yooka Laylee is revolutionary art

Yooka the chameleon and Laylee the bat are sunbathing and enjoying life's simple pleasures when their pristine afternoon is ruined by the capitalist expropriation of the One Book - a tome which contains the power to write history. It is expropriated from Yooka and Laylee by Dr Quack, the right hand man of the game's antagonist bourgeois bee, Capital B. This sets into motion the story that will lead Yooka and Laylee, who represent the peasants and workers respectively, to attempt to topple Capital B(ourgoisie).

The capitalist expropriation of their book leads our proletarian heroes to leave their pirate-ship home in search of their class enemy. The pirate ship suggests an unrealized anticapitalist conciousness in our heroes that exists before they are given the revolutionary impetus at the game's beginning. As our heroes approach the enemy's lair, Hivory Towers, they are exposed to the incredible environmental destruction caused by capital B in the search of profits. The entire landscape is covered in toxic waste. A result of the subordination of scientists like Dr. Quack to the will of the bourgeoisie.

Unlike most collect-a-thon games, Yooka Laylee does not feature coins or other capitalist fetishes as collectables. Instead, our heroes collect writing quills and pages - useful articles which represent the accumulation of knowledge and revolutionary theory by the proletariat to make possible their ultimate conflict with the bourgeoisie. The expansion of Yooka and Laylee's knowledge is greatly assisted by the strategic alliance with Trowzer Snake, who represents the petty bourgeoisie and it's historical origin in patriarchal property relations.

The symbolism in this game goes down to the details. For example, the 'corplet security' sentinal robot enemy is modled after Microsoft's Kinect camera. The studio that produced yooka laylee is staffed by former employees of Rare games, which was purchased by microsoft and forced to produce Kinect shovelware games, instead of artistically valuable ones.

Over all, I reccomend this game to all proletarian gamers.

After Action Report

Not a thread about a specific game as such but more a general concept - After Action Reports don't have a definite origin but they were popularized heavily by turn-based grand strategy games like the old Total War games, Civilization, some RTS games like Command and Conquer, and many tabletop games like Warhammer 40k.

The general premise is that you take the game session you played and turn it into a narrative experience meant to be read by people who hadn't experienced the campaign - stylized like a military document of sorts meant to relay the events during towards higher ups. However for this thread I think the definition should be expanded a bit to more encompass just any narrative retelling of a game experience, either single or multi-parted for any game that you think can manage it.

F2P Combat Autism Games

Hello everyone, after some serious temptation due to watching various militaria channels for some months I think I'm gonna finally jump on the bandwagon and try WT/WoT. Does anyone have experience with these kind of games? How badly exactly am I gonna get fucked by premium/longtime players?

I did some searches and it seems most people agree that WT is much more realistic and simulator-y than WoT which is good cause I'd like to try realism. So, that's the one I'm downloading right now, but does anyone else have a different opinion on it?

In addition, I know there's probably a huge amount of affiliate new member deals out there but does anyone know what one is the best I can use currently, ideally linked to a good YT channel that deserves it? If not I can just search for it but hey.

General advice for getting started (or why I shouldn't)?

Post Scriptum

Immersive WWII squad combat simulator. 80 people on a server, 40 a side, although they are talking about expanding it to a 100. There's no ranks, skins, microtransactions, or any of that bullshit. At the end of the game you just see your own stats, and four MVPs and that's it. Onto the next one. It's exciting as fuck and if you're not careful it eats your time. It is made with the Unreal engine and I am told it is very similar to Squad, which I haven't played.

The game has several game modes, but the most popular one is offensive. Where you capture enemy objectives by taking over the point. The maps and locations are as true to history as they can be, they re-created the locations from maps, aerial photos from the time, stuff like that. Weapons available are the ones available to that side at that battle. And yes, there are tanks. You can play as the Wehrmacht, Waffen-SS, US airborne, British airborne or French infantry (in 1940 iirc).

It's a real team game and communication and cooperation are necessary. You have a squad leader who commands his squad of 9 people, who can be riflemen, medic, light and heavy machine gunner, mortar, AT, sapper, radio, with the special classes divided among the squads. There are also armored squads, for driving tanks, because you need 2-3 people to operate a tank. There are also logistic squads, who have to set up forward operating bases, vehicle repair stations, supply stations, defenses, mortars, etc. The maps are huge, and you get a sense of a battle on a large scale.

Only downside is that the team developing it said they don't have enough money to add the Eastern Front battles to the game. But they have had modding only since December 2020, so probably in the future we can expect that someone will make some Eastern Front maps.

Do any of you play? I think it would be cool to get a leftist clan going in this game.

Gamers' contradictory attitude towards piracy and copyright

What could we do to push people like this to realize that just whining at a massive corporation is not going to fundamentally change anything, and that the problem is the system? I'm tired of hearing the same "look, I'm not promoting copyright infringement, but I also hate what this powerful company who is the copyright holder does to fan projects/its own games…" and other such cop-outs. Sounds like cuckoldry to me.

Maybe the first step is to promote the idea of changing copyright laws so that big businesses can't fuck people over as much, instead of allowing consoomers to try to defend fan projects/piracy and cucking out to copyright law designed to protect the rich at the same time. Maybe some already realize this, but I think the majority hasn't even thought that in this case, the problem is not the company who is unwilling to be nice and ignore the law to cooperate with fans, the problem is the laws (and system, of course, but they're not ready for that yet) that allow "anti-consoomer" companies to force their own rules onto those fans whenever and however they want, and it's hypocritical to simultaneously support such illegal activities and copyright law. They definitely already understand that corporations are not their friend and just want to make as much money as possible, gamers only need that little push towards real action.

From there, we could start promoting criticism towards the system itself, little by little. Hopefully, they would end up realizing that the issues in the videogame industry such as overpriced pieces of plastic or overpriced and limited re-releases of old unoptimized software are never going to be solved by reforming the company's policy or capitalism, that the implications are much more bigger than they ever imagined, that capitalism is not a universal and unchangeable state of affairs that we just have to accept and deal with, and that there exists a viable alternative to it which we could help bring about.

4X Games - Civ, Alpha Centauri, Shadow Empire

General for 4X games, but also an opportunity to introduce you all to a new game called Shadow Empire.

The game has an incredibly deep planet generation system that affects gameplay massively, including rotation of the planet (lol), makeup of the atmosphere, terrain, mineral deposits and alien life. It also has a logistics system to make you supply your units with food and ammunition, if they run out of supply they'll be very weak so you need to keep expanding the supply lines to the front and also making sure the enemy cannot cut you off. Obviously being encircled is very bad news for your troops.

You start as a minor "Regime" and your goal is to conquer the planet after the previous galaxy wide regime collapsed sending most of it into civil war and apocalypse. Each regime can be run differently and has different perks based on decisions you make throughout the game. For example if people start striking you can send in the army to deal with them (autocracy) or just pay them off (democracy), alternatively you can avoid the situation entirely by administrating the zones well, but that may lead to other troubles like a lack of credits for purchasing resources. You can run a mix of different systems so your decisions aren't set in stone for you but there are bonuses to always picking a certain method like unique units and stratagems, which are like ideological playing cards.

&lt4. Minecraft

Now let's see how many of these genres were started by games which were produced in a communist manner, ie. free of charge.

>MOBA

>its first title is DotA, originally a Warcraft 3 mod

>tactical shooter

>its first title is Counter Strike, originally a Half-Life mod

>team-based shooter

>its first title is the Quake mod Team Fortress

>Minecraft

>basically a copy of the open-source game Infiniminer which never got made or updated for commercial reasons

>battle royale

>it's first title is DayZ, an Arma 3 mod

>honorable mention: osu!

>while the game itself is open source, it's also commercially used and the concept comes from japanese arcade games

What faction would a principled Marxist side with in Fallout: New Vegas?

I though about starting this thread in /hobby/, but considering I'm not interested in talking about the merits of the game-itself, and rather to discuss the specific dilemma of factions, I thought I'd get a more focused discussion here.

The Wildcard ending notwithstanding, there are principally three different factions in the game you can side with: Caesar's Legion, New California Republic, and Mr. House. To begin, Caesar's Legion is a fascist power lead by a historical materialist (even though the writers somewhat misrepresent Hegel in their dialogue about the dialectic, the general theme is maintained) most players misunderstand Caesar as just a LARPer rather than someone who is genuinely trying to restart history. His Legion, is admittedly a hegemonic autocracy that Caesar intends to use to subjugate humanity under one banner, so that their collective progress would be accelerated. It's entirely possible to interpret Caesar as just history's janitor trying to send humanity back through the motions and antiquity to try and reach a better result than rushing back to the "good ol' days" like the NCR, rather than someone who takes pleasure in creating a slave society that is an objectively malignant entity.

The NCR is presented as the return of the old Bourgeois Dictatorship of the US, their government is a corrupt expansionist bureaucracy that can only adequately administrate war, meanwhile the actual body of the legislation itself has a lineage of benevolent autocrats (tandy) and is ruled by the interest of the "brahmin barons" (kulaks), this is a critique that Caesar presents in his analysis of the NCR (which happens to sound out-of-context Marxian). Caesar correctly identifies the NCR as a reincarnation of the failed Bourgeois state that brought about the very predicament of the wasteland, and seeks to use them as his component in creating a society apt enough to the material conditions of the wasteland.

The strangest character in this dynamic is Mr. House, if the NCR is a light veil for a Bourg dictatorship, then Mr. House is an open window, making no illusions to the player about his proposed autocratic status and ex-Bourg origin. Since the wasteland cannot be considered Capitalist (as a true economic analysis of the Fallout universe would lack too many necessary factors to be accurate) we have to assume that the wastes can be best surmised as a scavenger-economy wherein the most valuable resource is electricity and armaments, the wasteland does still have capitalistic elements (the barons of the NCR being a good example, as well as Crimson Caravan and Gunrunners) but lacks the infrastructure to maintain a conventionally capitalist society (and thereby is also incapable of creating a socialist society unless material conditions change).

I'd propose that due to this, the best choice for a Marxist in the wasteland is to side with whichever faction has the best capacity to create industry in the wasteland. All the factions in the maingame (and characters in the DLC hint at this theme, but would take to long to discuss) are representations of differing ideological states: the NCR being a bourgeois dictatorship under the farce of democracy, the Legion being a fascist army with the goals (at least the goals of Caesar) of restarting humanity's cultural progress, and Mr. House who breaks the mold as an autocratic Technocrat. You might refer to House as the supreme corporatist, but he's likely the only one possessing of the ability to either industrialize the wasteland or to simply leave Earth behind for Mars, despite being the most comically capitalist entity in Fallout (a series that from inception was an inherent critique of Nationalist Capitalism), House is likely the best choice for a principled Marxist, the NCR would lead humanity into a similar state of global capitalism, it too perhaps has the capacity to industrialize the wastes like Mr. House (and in face House intends to use them largely for a similar purpose) but Mr. House presents perhaps and easier path, because House is a planned economist, regardless of all the old-world business aesthetic, House is someone who would be a literal computer-god who plans the economy. House claims to be an objective ruler with a more important grand vision than say the short-term emulators of the NCR, who despite their uses to him, House rejects as the planners of the economy (potentially because he recognizes like Caesar, their inherent contradictions). In any event of House winning, the inevitable desire of the Marxist Courier would be to have him killed or deposed, I left out Yesman in this little essay because I thought that would be to filled with assumptions to really consider, because of course the obvious answer would be "courier and yes man takes over and the Comrade Courier uses Yesman to create an epic planned economy, Communism 100." A ending which to me seems really silly to rationalize in the context of the setting, to be clear, I don't think F:NV has any Marxist faction or even a Marxian theme, it's themes are focused around nostalgic ideology and the Gnostic need to either destroy the past or worship it. To the end of advancing the Fallout Universe to the next stage of history, I think Mr. House is the only one who even has the capacity to achieve it, even if he's a terrifying computer God who could only be removed by his "employees" in the most idealized scenario.

As Benny puts it: "Mr House hides Vegas under his skirt when the bombs drop so it's his? forever?" not that Benny is a proletarian revolutionary or anything, but a Mr. House ending would require that House be willing to take on proteges or somehow put himself in a position to be removed, but since that's a question more of game mechanics than narrative, I'll ignore it. Am I wrong? Who do you think a Marxist should choose?

However, none of the mods can really take on the responsibility right now, so is there anyone else who is interested in being involved with this? ULP's team is pretty cool, they have custom models, custom music, and all sorts, so there's definitely a lot of scope to experiment with the engine (blender models can be imported into the game).

Hello, as many of you may be aware I also moderate another image board at 7chan.org and the 7chan IRC. We are looking to grow our videogame IRC network and looking for people to join us in playing some videogames. We host a room dedicated to playing videogames online, or, just discussion about video games in general. Some people in the room mentioned bunkerchan.xyz/games/ and so here I am. I am looking to get a little input from the user base of /games/ about maybe hosting our irc network here as the official /games/ irc. That way we can have more people to play vidya with us over there and /games/ can, actually, have a central location for hooking up with other video game enthusiasts. Everybody wins in this case. That's my logic behind it. The bunkerchan mods unanimously voted in support of the matter. I just wanna get a little input from you guys here before we proceed.

Our irc network is located at irc.7chan.org/6697. SSL is required our gaming room can be located at #netplay. If anyone is interested in checking it out.

I'm currently replaying Fallout 4 in survival difficulty with a fuckton of mods and I got to say it's pretty fun, I also learnt to enjoy more what stories are told by the environment even if the actual writing is still awful.

But recently I discovered this
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minutemen_(anti-Communist_organization)
So what the fuck is up here, we are meant be the leader of the minutemen (out of nowhere) in a game clearly made up of 50' and 60' references, there's no way the creators did not know about this (or is there? I mean the plot is retarded). Does Preston even know he's black??

Anyway I was building homes and infrastructures for the working men and women of the commonwealth but now I don't know what to think. Am I the bad guy? There's not even an anarchist faction similar to the followers of the apocalypse I could go with in this game. Should I just become a raider and wait for Caesar to rebuild the productive forces?

Sterdust and liberalism in gaming journos

Recently people like Sterling and Schreier actually made a lot of shit that actually came close to class concious. Especially about gaming escapism and the kind of "anti-political" hypocrite mentality, showing that most rightoid actually DOES want politics in their games, but their kind of politics like having CoD imperialism simulator and America wank. Like this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5q2ibrU5Xpg
>The "it's optional" reasoning is only applicaple to consummer products like games but not the entire system of capitalism
>every criticism exist in its own bubble is practically applicabe to most defenders of neoliberalism
Why can't these people just connect the dots and see all of this is a systematic problem with capitalism itself? Or do they actually know it but choose to remain silent because themselves are afraid of alienating the normies?

Game Design

Aren't video games a most perfect realization of the spectacle? I fail to think of anything which has made a "concrete inversion of life" so effectively as video games. More than this it seems to exhaust all who play them of the tribulations of life there by converting them into the most significant population of last men to date. Recognizing this it follows that video games are only useful to the extent to which we can make games capable of waking their viewer to the theft of their life by the bourgeoisie, both in terms of surplus value extraction, and in terms of the spectacle.It's entirely possible that many here could team up to make a game capable of waking its viewers to the theft of their life by the bourgeoisie, both in terms of surplus value extraction, and in terms of the spectacle. While making a quality 3D game is much more challenging it is possible to get good results with GPL engines as that screen shot shows. Even if nothing else it is a productive direction for leftists with this affliction to pursue, and on a personal level resist the spectacle and alienation.[b]Any ideas for plot or mechanics of a game of this sort?[/b]

Opinions on RimWorld?

I think it's a really good game about managing a small community of individuals with different skills, needs and personalities.

Warfare in RimWorld is fucking terrifying because every warrior is a guy you have spent hours with, you understand their importance, you know of their relationships, you understand their personalities and if they die theres a true sense or loss there.

Vanilla is pretty barren, but there are excellent mods for this.

PC Videogames were only good between 1993 and 2000

This is not a discussion thread this is a declaration. What I am about to say is NOT up for debate and you CANNOT possibly dispute anything written here.

Remember how early cars could only be operated by literal mechanics because they were so unintuitive and shit? Games pre-1993 were exactly like that. Games had no plot and shite gameplay which does not hold up at all these days, nevermind the unbearably primitive graphics. Gaming was the nichest of hobbies and considering the fact that PCs used to cost like 15'000 dollary doos in todays money, it was never going to become mainstream.

Then in 1993 Knack came out saw the release of Doom and Ultima VII: The Black Gate (whose expansion Ultima VII Part 2: Serpent Isle would surpass the base game), the mother and father of modern gaming.
Doom as every brainless chimp knows invented the modern FPS and by extension TPS genres, the two most lucrative and popular gaming genres and showed how fucking rad vidya gaems could be. It was mainstream, caused just the right amount of moral panic and sold millions. Doom would then be surpassed by Doom 2 and finally by Blood, the best non-3d shooter period.

Ultima VII was the first genuinely good and playable Ultima game that still holds up. While the plot is hot trash, it proved the viability of the open world. Serpent Isle would then go on to prove that games could tell an engaging story. Together, they laid the foundation for every modern RPG including the Baldur's Gate series which has yet to be surpassed in excellence.

Not only did the 90s see the most influential games of all time, they were also the best. Why? Because during this time, the industry had struck the perfect balance between technological capability and commercialisation. Games before did not have the tech to be good and games after were ruined by capitalism. Ideas could flourish and were unburdened by investor interests, at least not to the degree of today. All of this culminated in 2000 the undisputed best year in gaming. BG 2 is the best crpg of all time (Planescape Torment has the best story but is lacking as a gaming experience). Red Alert 2 is the best RTS of all time. Diablo 2 is the best action rpg of all time. Deus Ex is the best PC game period according to some.

These days, no risks are taken. Games like Myst, Myth 1 or 2 or even Planescape could never be made today. Games are so fucking expensive to make and in order to make back their money, devs are forced to pander to the most common denominator. Gamers are Nazis, who cry and whine about idpol anytime a woman is on screen. Nerds back then were progressive and you never heard anything close to the gamergate bullshit of today. Graphics move more copies than concepts and plots are dumbed down so that every shitlib can understand them. Indiegames provide some refuge from the modern hell that is 21. century gaming but even things considered these days to be masterpieces like Undertale, Cave Story or Disco Elysium pale in comparison to the golden age.

I don't want to be "that guy"
but it's always stuck out to me as strange that the ending of the witcher game series ends with Geralt as a landlord. Both as a character and story wise it's a strange place for him to end up. He's very accepting of suddenly having a servant and literal peasants working this big vineyard for him.
Should seem like Geralt would resist being in that kind of position. Witcher series also examines a lot of contemporary ideology through the prism of this particular world, even economic exploitation like debts or unfair wages, but in this one instance the feudal arrangement just goes unremarked upon. I dunno what was up with that.

Stardew Valley

So I got addicted to this damn game, and I think it has a lot of leftist potential. Your character is rooted in anti-capitalism, and there's even a corporation destroying the environnement and community life. Two NPCs bear scars from imperialism (Kent, a soldier) and capitalism (Shane, a depressive alcoholic working a 9-5). Besides from that there aren't many references to ideologies (except for the religion of Yoba and a book against the war). What would you think of a mod adding more political substance to Pelican Town? (for example an active faction against Joja, or NPC helping you rebuilding the CC). I don't like this idea that everyone in this town with so much free time gave up that quickly their community center, and you are the only one able to save it with your bare hands.

My CityState review

This is copypasted from /leftypol/, in case it gets deleted over there for offtopic or whatever.Hello, I played the game for a good 10 hours (though half of that time I was only half playing and watching YT) so I can report back on how it went.Overall, the comments that other people made are correct, it is impossible to play the game as a communist. I was of course expecting the abstractions of playing a Neolib citybuilder attempted to model communism, but I wasn't expecting how broken the game's core systems are.I started out the game but quickly realised that in this game, you can't build a bridge over a river that is more than 1 tile wide. So, I nuked my save and went back to the terraforming stage.After modifying the map some, I built a tiny little commie hamlet, with all lower class (that's what they're called in this game) trailer parks. I found it kind of funny how lower class residential buildings always have grey wasteland type terrain around them, even when they instantly are building on a fresh green forest, as if their slovenly ways drain the life from the very soil around them and they instantly create a trashpit to live in.The game's systems are quite oblique, and there's no construction of for example power or water infrastructure, or schools, police, firefighters, so to increase living standards I had to just pop up the sliders in the economy tab for "healthcare" "education" and "security and justice".Anyway, we quite quickly reached 'Utopian' level living standards, which I was quite happy with, but things didn't seem to be quite working as I would have liked. My answers to the political issues that had been coming through had not exactly endeared me to the upper classes, which I wasn't really expecting, but what I had overlooked was that this game diverges from Simcity 4's mechanics.You see, in Simcity 4, you have Residential, commercial, and industrial demand, and then each of those has lower, middle, and high income demands. So for example, you can have a city with almost all lower and middle income residents but have plenty of fancy high income tech factories and the like.However, in Citystate, there is only lower, middle, and upper income demand, and commercial and industrial buildings can't grow above the first tier of development without middle and higher income demand. So, if no upper class people want to live in your city, your factories can't grow to higher levels.This left me a bit stuck for knowing what to do, but things had become even worse, because my open borders policy for the past years had led to a quickly spiralling problem of 'informal settlers'. Essentially, through a combination of factors I didn't really understand, almost all immigrants had settled in slum tiles that popped up rather than in growing my residential tiles to higher levels.Eventually I noticed that there were even little 'caravan' tiles of a crowd of migrants that would come in from the sides of the map to your city and then create a new slum tile. Apparently, one way to deal with this issue is by building walls or army bases but I didn't do that, obviously. I eventually made a concession to the gravity of the situation and put my immigration policies to neutral, but the damage had already been done, and my city now had about 80,000 slumdwellers, which was more than the entire employed workforce that lived in residential areas. My 'quality of life' meter still read 'utopian', yet the majority of people were unemployed and living in favelas. My city was in a death spiral, and I was now losing a lot of money each month. What could I do?

Most accurate sum-up of real life in terms of alignment system comparison?

Since the industrial revolution 'Lawful Evil' has become far more common than 'Neutral Evil'.

Although today it exists more in the form of crime gangs, just like how bandits were often that way back then.

'Lawful Good' and 'Chaotic Evil' are equally rare alignments to each other.

The 'good guys vs villains' stuff is often more in the form of 'chaotic good', chaotic neutral (sometimes) and 'neutral good' going up against 'lawful evil'.

If you designed a fantasy game that mirrors real life in 'alignment distribution' this is how it would look.

If a character like Mehrunes Dagon or Zamorak were to show up in the real world through some sort of 'inter-reality travel' he would be seen as a hero. Planet Earth from now to the 1990s would certainly be the most ideal setting.

Half-Life

So in case you didn't hear about some of the stuff people have found digging through the files of Alyx but Half-Life 3 literally died for this game as in the assets for the cancelled Half-Life 3 game are still in Source 2's coding and even the weapons for the game are still packaged in the model files.

Also it turns out Alyx is just a reworked Half-Life short story as people found the normal non-VR files for the game and it was just a tech demo that was 40 minutes long, the VR stuff was just slapped on and it was turned into a full game.

TL;DR: Alyx is just the greedy cash grab on the Half-Life name we all knew it was and the proof was literally in the pudding.

free puzzle games

Here are three puzzle games for the Nintendo Entertainment System made by enthusiasts in the 21st century that you can play in emulator for free. In each of these titles the level is a single screen.

[b]Multidude[/b]: Side-view. Guide the dudes to the exit doors (each dude uses up one exit because video-game logic). The dudes have different abilities: One can shove blocks, one can fly and so on. They can also climb on top of each other. http://www.retrosouls.net/?p=824

[b]Alter Ego[/b]: Side-view. (Not to be confused with an old classic of the same name that goes through a life in fast forward and asks you questions.) You have a phantom buddy that mirrors your movement and you can switch places at the press of a button. You finish a level by collecting all purple pieces and sometimes also green pieces that only your phantom buddy can collect). http://www.retrosouls.net/?p=468

[b]Gruniozerca 3[/b]: Top-down view. Destroy all blocks and make it to the exit. There are different types of blocks like teleporters and exploding ones that damage their surroundings. There is also a carrot item that gives you the ability to jump over block-width gaps for the duration of the rest of the level. https://mteegfx.itch.io/grunio3

I found Multidude really bland at first compared to Alter Ego. There is no music and everything looks the same. But the later levels get really tough, which makes it memorable. Alter Ego has changes music and graphics every couple levels, but this the regular makeover in presentation isn't accompanied by new mechanics (how about some switches or enemies that only hurt your phantom buddy?). Getting through a level in Alter Ego is a matter of seconds, even the last level. The later levels in Multidude get really tough. It happened several times that I started a Multidude level before going to work and failed to solve it, thought about it while at work instead of whatever I was supposed to pay attention to, and then solved it after going home. The last level of Multidude is some maddening stuff with the exits high in the sky and you have to build a structure to reach them without trapping yourself.

Gruniozerca 3 also gets tough in the later levels, but when you fail a level a couple times you get offered a demonstration how to do it. There are 24 levels (plus a survival mode with computer-generated levels). In level seven it introduces three new elements at once. I feel you should only introduce one new element at a time and I for one would have thrown in a few more simplistic levels for that purpose. When your strongest point of criticism of a puzzle game is that it is missing a few dumb and bland levels it's a pretty good one.

So its a recently released Dark Fantasy RPG made by an Indie developer. Really fits mobile well if they could do it.

Takes place in a pandemic ridden setting, full version released late last month.

"Plunge into the Lawless Lands of Crossia, a once great kingdom where chaos slowly consumes more and more of the country. The cities have plummeted into poverty and crime, and the surrounding countryside is littered with famine and death. The army is close to collapse from an ever-lasting war and cannot stop the spread of the disorder. Hope is almost nonexistent, restoring order is believed to be futile, and panic lingers everywhere. Take on the role of a champion who rises from the ashes to end the suffering."

THE BMS OF /LEFTYPOL/: ROAD TO CLASS ABOLITION

>Downloads and guides on how to start
https://bms-community.github.io/resources/

>What is BMS?

BMS (Be-Music Source) is a file format for rhythm games, devised by Urao Yane in 1998. The format was originally developed as a format specific for a simulator of the game Beatmania by KONAMI, and currently the term BMS is widely used to describe the whole Beatmania simulating game system.

>Why should I care?

1) It's the best fucking rhythm game out there. All the songs available are made specifically for the game and keynoted, so when you press a button, the sound actually plays unlike games like Osu! or other Mania games.
2) There's an insane amount of content. The "game" has been going around for over 20 years, with artists famous in other rhythm games getting their start in this format. While the skill ceiling is baffling, there's just as much content available for beginners and intermediate players as well.
3) It is a picture of what post-capitalist gaming could look like. Everything is made and distributed entirely for free, with events like "The BMS of Fighters" encouraging collaboration and cooperation between artists. There are very, very, very few concessions made in the name of capitalism, the game can be brutally hard or esoteric in song design without worry of having to appeal to a market. While controllers for the game do exist, if you want to play with keyboard, you'll probably have an easier time than if you blew $200 on a Beatmania con.

>What are some examples of gameplay?

(Note: because there are multiple clients to play these songs on, and skins are fully customizable, looks may vary from video to video)

Help finding an obscure game

Recently while watching Zero Punctuation I remembered that yahtzee, during the Drown Out video series with his friend once discussed some sort of an obscure sounding strategy multiplayer game.
The main fact I recall about it is that allegedly "all of the people who played it where Slavs or Germans who REALLY loved communism. If I am not mistaken, the game sounded as if it was some sort of tactical multiplayer team game that I think took place in Yugoslavia, as another fact that I recall was that if the same team had a Bosnian and a Serb soldier, they would try to kill each other. Also I think it allowed to really minmax and customize the loadouts of the troops. I never checked the game out and don't recall the name, but these facts about it stuck around. I won't bother finding the video where they discussed it as that would take way too long. Hence I am asking here: anyone got a clue what they where talking about?

Call of Duty

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsjCoh6rFd0
I know about its factual inaccuracies. That it's just a copy of enemy at the gates. However let me explain how this was many kids first exposure to the ussr and what a great job it did communicating through gameplay what the war was.

The soviet campaign takes place last in the game, after the british and american ones. Throughout the game you visit many locations and the mood is an adventurous one. Soldiers remark on celebrating with bottles of wines from french cellars, the beauty of the architecture besides the one or two artillery shelled buildings. And there's never any shortage in supplies.

This quickly changes with the soviet campaign. From the start the design is something that looks like hell. There's no green grass, the sky isn't even blue. Every single building is destroyed by shelling. And what really let you know shit just got real, you don't even get a gun.

They didn't teach ww2 history besides d-day and the atomic bomb, so to a child, this was formative. The creators did an unmatched job communicating the disparity between east and west fronts in the war. It was very clear all of a sudden that the soviets were fighting for their survival in a way the british and americans weren't.

So bravo to call of duty, regardless of how shit it might have become later on, this game will always be one of the greatest achievements of the medium.

Now that Evo is dead, will there be a new annual big event of gaming tournaments to replace it? Can something be built from the grounds up, with less corporate interfetterence? Maybe some very old games from dead companies? A slot for Open Source gaming? The entire event Adults Only?

What do you think of the logo I made? I'm also thinking about having a mascot named Major T. But I can't draw.

VR is cool.

I don't get why it isn't mainstream yet. They are cheap AF for how awesome they are, I got a WMR headset for 230 bucks new. Literally every genre is better in VR. Even if I could only play Pavlov and Elite Dangerous I would still be obsessed.

Metal Gear Thread

Sup comrades. Who here is a fan of the Metal Gear games? It's got strong anti-imperialist and anti-war themes and one of the games (Peace Walker) pretty much has you playing as Che Guevara. Which game do you like best? My favourite would be MGS3.

Demon's Souls Remake

>new flamelurker
But why? Unless it's actually a phase thing where the new rocky bits including the skull face/mask go away after enough damage and exposes the old fleshy design, it's a total downgrade. The horns seem to be the same general shape and the new face has a hollow top, making it look like a mask. That's the only way I see how the redesign can work.

Game sales general

For the next week Itch.io will be helping out BLM by selling a bundle of 1,470+ games for $5. Half of the money goes to the NAACP, the other half goes
to the Defense and Educational Fund and the Community Bail Fund. It's basically like action 52 all over again so there's a lot of shitty games, but there are some gems and very creative games mixed in. So it's worth it, because there's more entertainment here than in a year long subscription to Netflicks. It'll take me a long time to go through them, but if I discover any gems I'll talk about them.

Let's create a FOnline 2 faction

fuck that 76 crap, this is true fallout(I hope you've all played the og game).

we need 500k caps to create a faction, I've allready gathered 1230.

Beginner's guide: https://wiki.fonline2.com/Beginner%27s_Guide

just some quick tipps:
1.the place were you start, there's some flint on the ground, look arround and take it, craft a "primitive tool" using it and chop some of the trees. wood is usefull to craft all sort of things.
2.you can interact with trashcans and other such things to scavenge crafting materials.
3.write down your password(and even name) somewhere, there doesn't seem to be a way to recover them if you forget them.

Animal Crossing thread

Here's a yugo/polish anthem I saw online.
R: 1 / I: 0
I've finally realized after many years of contemplation the perfect way to do skill checks and other things of that nature in video games:

Present the player with a dice roll and then allow them to decide whether it works or not. Take the example of a pickpocket attempt that has a 50% chance of success. Typically what would happen is the player preforms the action and is then told whether it succeed or failed. If they don't like the results they reload. The New Way would involve the player preforming the action and then being presented with the resulting dice roll and themselves have to decide whether to play along or not.

Trying to circumvent the players agency by meta punishing them with autosaving and things of that nature always struck me as futile and misguided(Also why I think karma system are bad but that's another story). I agree cheating is bad, but this way you can see the truth of why it is laid out in front of you. Its honest, and likely more engaging.

What is bunkerchan's opinion of Tom Nook from Animal Crossing?
I've seen a lot of leftist argue that he deserves the bullet because he's a property owner, but others have said that in the game he gives away more than he could ever turn a profit from.
Does this mean he gets a pass?
I personally think Isabelle should be given critical support and usurp power from him at some point in time so that she could implement communal type measures after Nook industrializes the island using your labor, but it's almost as if the game is trying to say that Tom Nook is a necessary evil to get to modern communal living. The game doesn't really valorize his actions, either. He's a tanooki, and in Japanese folklore they are seen as tricksters by nature. In this way, he exists more as an anthropomorphized analog for the duplicity of the capitalist. Yet despite this, he also isn't as harsh as a modern capitalist might be. He doesn't tack on interest, have a set-in-stone timeline when you're supposed to pay him back, and won't ever repossess your home if you refuse to pay him. In this way, he represents more of the fantastical benevolent capitalist that Americans idealize.
The only conclusion I've been able to come to is that the developers themselves are a bit confused about who Tom Nook really is.

Troubleshooting on my mod (in MS excel)

Hello everyone, I am politely requesting some help from you guys to help me troubleshoot my Democracy 3 mod from several years ago. Unfortunately I have basically forgotten how to use the modding tools anymore and do not really know how to fix the problem, so I was looking for some advice.

Would any of you be interested in helping me out?

This is the mod BTW, I have people who say it is working and people who say it isn't, so yeah idk.

Obviously I will provide more details and so on once I apprise the situation better.

Thanks all.

Daggerfall Unity only takes 1 minute to install and mods are easy.

Follow the video instructions. The files needed are here:
Game files:
https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=0B0i8ZocaUWLGWHc1WlF3dHNUNTQ

Daggerfall Unity:

Recommend these videos for info on mods:
https://youtu.be/GyElwUjh3og

https://youtu.be/yINjviYSO3s

Mods are easy to install. All you have to do for most of the mods is go through to DaggerfallUnity_Data > StreamingAssets > Mods – dump the dfmod files in the mod folder… But certain mods will have questpacks and instructions. You place the questpacks in a questpack folder and sometimes another folder depending on the mod.

Recommended Mods:
Mountains and Hills
Handpainted Models
Archaeologists
Post Processing
DREAM - (but cut out interface/UI and mobs, imo–might have to delete part of that in the folder–changes cursor. I deleted UI, mobs, portraits, and sounds)
Wilderness NPCs (remember to edit this one; it's easy to edit mods via launcher)
Convenient Clock
Loading Screens
Filling Food
Tedious Travel (for RP extra travel–takes away fast travel)
Quest Pack 1
Warm Ashes (quest pack; pay attention to installation instructions)

This thread is for sharing screencaps/stories/character details and anything else related to DFU.

I feel like the industry push towards micro transactions and away from fully developed product is a way to hinder piracy online.
I just download skyrim and the sims totally for free with no issues, but, I tried to download Starcraft II and It's a fucking mammoth of a task to get it to work properly with out an internet connect. How can we even go about pirating games that require online play or whatever nonsense they are trying to peddle to make virtually free and perfect commodities cost money,?

Does anyone else feel this way?

Let's discuss the shitshow that is TLOU2. Is the leaker right? Is the story shit?

Personally I have always hated the first one and that the plot twists and turns that people hate so much in the sequel are a direct continuation of the extremely cringe and tryhard storytelling of the first one
