Just noticed that both the old /gsg/ thread and the hoi 4 threads were full so here's a new thread.

Reposting from the Hoi 4 thread:

I found a supposed leak detailing the L-NPP paths, despite the lib bias of the devs Gus still seems pretty based. Plus it also has the 1976 and 1980 L-NPP candidates.

>At this stage, mass prosecution of the upper class will begin, now that the courts are sufficiently saturated with L-NPP appointees. Hall’s FBI director will have assembled lists and evidence on the illicit gains of the American wealthy, and, starting all at once, mass arrests will be carried out of the most unsavory individuals. This is a crisis as well, as this upheaval causes capital flight from the United States,which Hall can react to in a variety of ways - including shooting down private planes.

Yeah I'm thinking he's based

Quite the art making such a large screenshot totally unreadable


Think I've just had the worst game of V2 I've ever played as Portugal on GFM
>can't invade brazil because it's fucking perma-allied to the UK for some reason
>can't colonize because railroading events just hand out most of africa before anyone has the technological capabilities to do it properly
>lose the entire congo where most of my holdings are because me, #9 on the power list, 200 diplo with all GPs, gets cucked by a literally who totally irrelevant and collapsed belgium
60 years of boring and 5 years of "fuck this shitty playthrough", I was already pissed off with how boring it was before I loaded it up for 30 minutes and quit

Also absolutely fuck whoever came up with the sphere system and got it into the final game, love bouncing around #8 with three other idiots and it messing up our economies, being unable to sphere anyone because the AI is perfect at managing them, losing my standing with every country when I drop from GP, and having some cunt unsphereing me and then leaving me unsphered afterwards


Have there been any announcements on Victoria 3 and what they're replacing the sphere system with? Because it's one of my least favorite things about V2.


The Sphering system also seemed broken to me especially because (iirc) it gives economic bonuses to the GP/Overlord in charge.
You could get absolutely fucking OP as france FAST in vic2 by basically just slowly expanding your European sphere of influence, Taking lelgium, Switzerland and the Italian secondary powers,
And then sniping the Netherlands, Spain and the Ottomemes when they dropped from great power status.

It's Also awfully broken in regards to Germany.
You can stop germany from ever forming by just taking one OPM into your sphere as either france, UK or Russia.

Yes, which is part of the reason why it's better


>This is actual a side-effect from the genre taking inspiration from tabletop games
I mean not really, since this stuff was already present in LotR


do you where to find this software for personal use? such as the one in ops pic


Idk which software/engine was used to make Ys Chronicles, but all Alice Soft/Champion Soft games (such as Rance) use some version of Alice Soft's own engine (AliceSoft System x), as you can see here:


thanks anon ^..^

Hey guys, I wanna play TTRPG, I've never really played more than a few one off sessions here and there, I was also a DM for some people for a few months but I couldn't deal with the stress.

Anyway, where's the best place I should look for a game (online)? It all seems so intimidating.

I've never been the best at social stuff. Also it would help if the game is furry friendly.

>Check if there's a game store near you to meet people.

There are game stores near me but whenever I go in they're usually devoted to playing card games. I dunno. I would feel weird going up to random people and being like 'hey I wanna join your game' anyway, but doing in person DnD could definitely be better.


for the DLC's you can just use a creamapi if you already have the game,or you can just use them on a pirated version on multiplayer (you have to convince your entire table to pirate it tho)
there is even a mod tool if you don't own the game on steam to download automatically from the workshop.
This on the other end necessitate to have all the assets yourself as PNGs,and fork over cash for the subscription service depending on how much you need in term of space. (hard limit of 5 players without paying,and 100mo of files max)
It's possible to do it without using any money at all,but it's more time consuming than just picking all the assets in a free mod,but it's easier to setup the game itself.

whenever i can pull up a team that actually wants to make a game


dat gun model do be looking plain tho
gotta keep working at it



is a low poly model
i actually wanted to use it to play around with substance painter and specular/shadow/


>> I am from a family that has endured the consequences of revolution.
well clearly not enough if you know what i mean


When this dude was talking about having a family that endured the consequences of a revolution he was talking about the Iranian Revolution, not the Cuban Revolution.

I don't think anyone here agrees with the Iranian Revolution so…I may buy the game, who knows?

Any point using C++ instead of only C#? After I started using C# it just feels like a language that can do all I would want with C++, but has none of the retarded annoyances that require you to dig out obscure and poorly explained methods just to do basic things like properly process strings. I imagine C# would be more resource demanding and slower, but is that such a big issue?


Performance is almost never the issue. Only novice hobby programmers believe that. C# is a nice language.

i honestly don't care i just want to code wacky game mechanics and be able to make my games run in a 2008 PC and still look great


>Any point using C++ instead of only C#?
IDK, I just read some pretty convincing arguments that made me believe me that it's pretty useful, and that it's easier to learn other languages like Python or C# if you learn C++ first.

>melty blood
Oh, that's the game, right? The "fotm" that killed Strive?


Honestly,I feel it didn't "kill" strive,but there was quite a number of top players that simply didnn't like strive (and kept playing it for money),so they move on with the community following,and with how shit the network was at launch,melty also got shat on on twitter.
And now the nickelodeon smash game is the new Fotm,until king of fighters 15,then SF6,etc etc,it's a big celebrity contest where every game series end up with it's own niche (For Honor is unironically still alive for exemple)
Also there is a cheat script coming to strive recently,but it's not an epidemic for now,and I've only seen one Ram player using their own.


>>12866 (me)
To add more data to my analysis,by double checking the steam charts,it's the worst game of the current fighting game with Fighter Z in terms of number just behind MK11,at 3x less than melty/SF/DOA at 1K players.
Tekken is the best of the lot at 8K concurrent players on steam.
If you're playing on console (old gen),you can at least give a x1.5 to all those numbers,and add it if crossplay exist.
You're gonna run a lot into the same people at your rank,but other than that it should be playable.
Even the nickelodeon game is worse than tekken even tho it came out the 5th of this month,and it's way more casual friendly,but I guess there has not been a lot of content creator hype for now.
Fighting games have always been a niche genre,so the more games exists,the more fractured the community is,it's just how it is.
It kept its numbers quite decently before this huge 2-month drop,so I can see why the feeling is that it's "dead".



Muscle memory vs improvisation

It's common to see games use a monetary economic system in gameplay. What are some games that use alternative economic systems?

Are there any that explicitly use labor vouchers or other labor-centric economies?

Ironically Dwarf Fortress is a communal society with no currency whatsoever,only really existing for trading,and nobles only exists because they do,they're functionnally useless.
I say ironically because the dev really tried (and still does) to implement an actual capitalist economy in the game,but it always ended up in constant crises and monopolies,making the actual game experience miserable,which he called "bugs".


>I say ironically because the dev really tried (and still does) to implement an actual capitalist economy in the game,but it always ended up in constant crises and monopolies,making the actual game experience miserable,which he called "bugs".
well he's not wrong that they're bugs
he's just wrong that they're bugs in the game and not in capitalism lol

Also like DF lots of games are effectively a centrally planned economy with you as the planner, so wtf are video games based communism simulators?



I remember this was this flash game called Caravaneer 2 that had a really well fleshed-out economy system. In it, the prices of a commodity are determined by supply and consumption, which itself is made of many factors. For instance, smaller towns and tribes won't pay much for things like gold, oil, or soap because they have no demand for them and certain items, such as clothing, can take longer than other commodities, like beef, to be consumed. It's honestly quite impressive for a game that was free and is now like $6 on Steam. It also had communal economies in some areas if I remember correctly, most notably in the starting bunker and the surrounding tribes.


Somebody made a Skyrim mod that tried to simulate supply and demand of various commodities so that prices would fluctuate and you could make money as a happy merchant buying things in places where it was cheap and selling them in places where they were expensive.
Found it
Trade Routes is the name
<Dynamically adjusts the gold value and merchant supply of food, drinks, animal parts, ingredients, ores, ingots, gems, soul gems and spell tomes according to the actual supply and logical demand of each item in each hold. These regional differences serve to create a network of profitable trade routes, and can also be influenced by game events.

That's neat.


MMOs have functioning economies.
You can corner the monkey nuts market in Runescape if you really wanted

It plays like papers please, so thats a plus for me.
not sure how historically accurate it is though.


Overall, the court sections are pretty good, but the 'minigames' are bloated and overlong, with the final act standing out as particularly confused. In addition, this game attempts to avoid 'partisan politics' to a seemingly absurd degree and seems to only want to make a petty and vain point of 'unrestrained bloodshed is bad', well that's true, but it's dishonest to hyperfocus on the much-hyped 'reign of terror' while decontextualising it from the wider terror of feudalism which existed for centuries before the revolution and all its bloodshed.


I just got it, and I guess I just dont know too much about the French revolution yet to make any big deductions about the developer bias or things like that.
