Whammer Slammer Kablammer
So, I am a little puzled. I have researched almost everything i can and cannot make it into the iron tier of goods on the research tree. why do the things that contribute to getting new blueprints give so little research experience? and what do i do to reach the next tier of research? is this a bug? the only thing i havent really made yet is the jump syringe, and my research meter isnt even halfway!
Here are my thoughts on this mod so far. i have made it up to the enpro facility.
The graphical effects are vey nice. The extra lighting for the dark areas feels unneccesary for me, as i had no problems with the vanilla lighting. The lens flare and the extra effects are very nice as well as the DOF. I was kinda bummed when my gtx 680 couldnt handle the extra graphic options like ssao and whatnot, i though my card was pretty beefy! Even with these features turned off, the game looks quite nice for it's age.
The damage scaling is a double edge for me. I like the realism, but at the same time, i am chewing through these minions of hell like it is almost nothin. i have waaaay too much ammo and almost never have to switch weapons. It is good but at the same time a little too easy regardless if the enemies can take me out quicker. (For the record i am playing on veteran) I havent tried nightmare yet, but if it has the same decreasing life mechanic coupled with that annoying sound effect like in the vanilla version, i will pass. The new health system is very welcome. I wish the ammo would be trimmed down a little to give that feeling of scrounging around and surviving, but all and all, the best Doom 3 Mod i have played so far. Hands down.
I hear you. For me, everytime the game updates and i have to start over, my motivation for this game dies. I'll be pleased when they get things cemented in and updates wont force me to start over all the time. Other than that, I love seeing the progress they make on this game and i hope it is successful.
K. I found the problem. My sound settings were set at 7.1 configuration for some reason when i know I had it at 2.1. I'm not sure how it got reset, wether by this mod or whatever, but everything is sounding as it should now that i have reverted to my original 2.1 settings. Now I'm going to chew through these monsters for the umpteenth time and enjoy every min. of it! grrrr
Your combinator is your first power source. Make some wire and connect your combinator to your workbench. after that you will need generators for power. be careful not to hook up too much stuff to your combinator or things will short out.
This is a fantastic mod, but i have encountered some sort of sound glitch. When I started the level alpha labs 2, the sound suddenly got strange, like everything was in the background? It is hard to describe. everything sounds muffled or not there at all, and the sound seems to fade in and out at will. i can't seem to getr rid of it either.i played through the alpha labs 2 level like this, but it reappeared in the next level. Is it a soundcard setting of mine that is screwing it all up? EAX 4.0 is disabled.
Nevermind. Answered my own question. Plants underground emit the gas.
Can anyone tell me where to find bars of steel? I need them to craft my smelters and whatnot, but i need the smelters to craft the bars in the first place! Is there a way to salvage them elsewhere? I only need 2 :(
*can't seem to use the glass jars to aquire it. herdur :P
This newbuild is fantastic. No game breaking bugs yet! Love the new UI and animations.
I have another question, How do I aquire gas? I see the blueish clouds around some areas but i can seem to use the glass jars to aquire it. is there another way?
Rubber is made from tar. You can research it then make it. You can also find it in scrap piles or chests that are scattered throughout your world.
Glad to be in the group! The game is awesome and i can't wait for the next update!
I have some questions if i may.
1. Will there be an end to the game? Like a final boss or objective to complete?
2. With the wiring, will we see more complex mechanisms like Gates or Relays? (They may already be in there, i haven't been able to progress cause of the bugs)
3. How will multiplayer work? How many people can play on one map? Will the core game remain the same for it, or will there be specific game modes and such?
4. Will the monsters be able to mess with your base/lights/equiptment if your materials or defenses are not up to snuff?
5. Can I build a ship or something to get me off this planet? lol
Again, thanks for your hard work in squashing the bugs and getting this game playable for everyone as quick as possible. Even when the updates are teeny little bug fixes or aren't immediatley noticable, it is very appreciated to see a good game such as this get the love and attention it deserves in such a timely fashion. You all rock. Keep up the good work.
Oh please please please let that update come out today. I got a hankering for this game like no other.
Awesome!!! Thank you all at Allgraf for attending to these bugs in such a timely manner. I for one love this game and want to play it ASAP, so thanks for squashing the bugs as quickly as you all have. Can't wait to get back into building my base!
Im so stuck. I can't progress any farther on the research tree. I can reload the game and keep playing but once i try to access that Building Blocks tab, it freezes, then i alt ctrl del out of it.
I can confirm the Building Blocks button in the crafting menu is bugged in the later stages of the game for me. No matter which way I try to go about it, it always freezes and i have to alt ctrl del.
Looks like i've hit the wall again as i cannot craft any of the items i need. I'll be back when its fixed!
My crash seems to happen everytime I try to click my building blocks button in the crafting menu.
Ok, I created a new charactor and world, and that seemed to work. i hate to start over again, but i am very happy to be playing. I'll post after my session and report any bugs i find.
Thank You aebanninga!
Now the game won't even boot up my world. I can't get a new world up either.
This must be one hellova bug.
How about your research? can you craft or even research anything iron? I somehow was able to research a workbench and iron bar smelting, but i still cant touch anything else. I got the points...
So, between the glitch on my research, the glitch on the scrap piles and the maybe glitch with the wooden buckets and tar, I am quite screwed. Anybody have any advice to remedy this besides waiting for the official patch fix? Despite all this, I looove the update. Makes the game much better and refined.
Im encountering a game crashing bug with harvesting random peices of scrap metal. Certain piles will make the game lockup with no way to exit but alt ctrl del. Anybody else?
Do's that mean i'm encountering a glitch with my research? I'm on tier 2 but can't build hardly anything from it regardless if i have the mats.
I have a plenty of wooden buckets. the problem is it won't let me get any tar with the wooden bucket. I can get water just fine lol. I wa wondering if that is why they added the metal bucket?
Question about crafting and research. I have enough points, but can't pick an item to research because the cost is in red ands the picture darkened, so how do i enable myself to research these abilities? I have built darn near everything else there is. I also have another question about Tar. In the older version you could use wooden buckets to get some but now I can't seem to do that anymore. I need tar to build more items for my research progression but can't research a metel bucket or anything. i seem kinda stuck... how do i aquire tar??? Thank you to the Darkover team for getting us that hotfix while the bug gets taken care of!!!
You and me both. Hopefully they get it fixed by tonight, but I guess I could find something else to do if not. I do have edge of space but i don't like it as much as this one. :)
Right on! Thanks for keeping us updated!
I feel stupid but uh.. how do i do that exactly? lol Is it a file in the game folder or the black box that runs in the background when the game is up, or maybe something else? Thanks for helping!
Yep. Thats the one.
Always with the games i really want to play too. :P
ALrighty, new problem. I got the game to update but upon trying to load up a world old or new, it gets hung up.
I tried the repair option on the updater but that didn't fix it. I have created a new character as well, but no go.
