I don’t know how many units Steam’s OEM can produce and how quickly but, judging from the hype on Reddit since the original announcement, I’m pretty confident it’s going to sell out. I might look at getting one next year as my laptop replacement since it’s better spec’d than my current laptop and, with a dock it can act as full PC. You’d have to carry a keyboard and mouse around but I do that anyway when moving my laptop since I’m usually only going from home to a hotel with it.
on occasion i will leave a unit or two static for a week or two to rest and refit. but winter is hitting shortly, and i am gonna be fuxxed if i dont have enuf VPs before the winter counterattack starts, so since mid-september its been pretty much all out all hands on deck no rest for anyone
i actually think i coulda-shoulda pushed harder in July, and then i woulda been more in a position to rest and set up for the counterattack by now
I am certain Adolf will understand. Come back to Berlin, he would like a briefing. Pack light.
Hi Everyone, We want to start by thanking you all for the patience and kindness you’ve shown us since we launched in February. We launched into Early Access because we want to build the game with you, but never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined how many of you want to join us on this...
BTW…you just copy and paste the link direclty and it will embed.
What’s the difference between normal AI and virtual AI?
Virtual AI are running in the back end, not on the server. So there are computers that make the AI think and decide what to do and shit. But they go full Finn and don’t exist when a player isn’t in the area. So you can have tens of thousands of AI doing this that runs the economy and wars without the game server having to process it. The idea was that 90% of the people in the game are AI so asshole player orgs wouldn’t dominate the thing. Basically they want a lot of dynamic interactions too, not scripted missions and shit. Whether they get there depends on how long Chris Roberts can stay alive and how many ships people can buy I guess. It’s still going to be years before it’s done.
I stopped reading at “Virtual AI will be running up your ass . . .”
I haven’t kept up on any of this so it’s all pretty new to me. I wonder if the foliage gives any sort of soft cover from the AI perspective? Arma AI tends to have laser vision sometimes. And was it actually common for them to take the front sight posts off the RPD? I guess it makes sense when in dense jungle where you don’t exactly need it and the potential of getting it caught up on something is higher, but it seems pretty detrimental if you needed to take shots at a further distance.
