POSITIVES: I spent 13 hrs enjoying the construction of a base with a couple friends and felt it was a great combination of teamwork and trust building approaches. lots of naked people running around with their bits and pieces floppin around is incentive as any to give them clothing lol
i really appreciated the ease of base building. i haven’t had any issues with things sitting properly( and just so you guys know-You can build an impenetrable wooden house ;D ) but more-so is when your finished it has a very "RUST"ic feel to them. reminds me of my cottage.
There should be a GARRYsquatch implemented that only shows up at night an scares people with EFFECT noises, not music noises. that way those that have their music off(me) to hear better cant ignore hearing a groan that sounds in human from right outside their front door
the player versus player servers are the most frustrating, i would hope in the future there would be a level(leveling system) of acquisition that doesn’t allow the nekkids(fresh spawns) to be destroyed by someone with a gun.
BUT WITH THAT SAID I HAVE MY ISSUES WITH IT: See Below
How can one continue to help out the development of this game, when simple mechanics that should already be pre-exsistant are not in place. Where is the incentive to continue to play? I get absolutely frustrated(and justifiably so ) when i spend more than 13 hrs putting something together only to log on and not have the server available or to have constant boots when i am in game. If you cant handle the load , don’t publish more damn keys. That
s like knowing your dealing with a spastic and you still give them keys to your car for an evening- SHITS GONNA GO DOWN!- and then your left with angry voice mails about how irresponsible it was and the grief youve caused others. stepping back and saying “Its just a game” doesn’t cover it. You want us and future people to buy and play with your toys- offer one that doesnt break when u play with it. but if you want us to help DEVELOP a game FOR YOU then close public access or have a screening system in place using your already established network of trusted people. your Dutch auction is a cool idea but unlike kick-starter you haven’t offered incentives(getting the game is what i paid for right?),if i spend 40$ on something i would at least appreciate a Tylenol or a bottle of wine(i just emptied mine typing here).
now i am completley open to the fact that maybe i sound like an Butthole or however this gets interpreted, but the point im trying to make is there and its said with alot more understanding than the average arsehole that rants about something they had complete control over and didnt use their head in the situatuation and lost it all and came here to scream at the world that Garry let them down because they didnt start off with a knife to fight the guy with the rock in the begining. I was trying to be critical and provide the real world mindset of people playing while still being understanding.
I look forward to the continued development of this project and hope that in the near future your game will gain even more popularity than that lil thing called GMOD
P.s congrats on your newest family installment, i hear that the patches between 13 and 18 can be a bit frustrating but you will see the greatest game developed right before your eyes over those years
