  1. Keep ya head really hasn't been that long yet. I'll repeat this yet again...Identities planned scale, and the fact they added SpatialOS to expand players per server, is gonna take this game a while to get finished. I would hope atleast another 2 to 3 years before they release the full game. If they try to make a game that is multiple times more than what Gta V is, and they do it in less time than a triple-A company like rockstar, it wouldn't be the game I am hoping to play. Game development is a pretty well known process. It didn't start last night, yet on so many forums I see ppl whining about time, THAT has killed more games I bet, then actual developers trying to pull a scam. Let's take Rockstar for instance... They took how many years to release Gta V, a small game in comparison with the intended scale of Identity, and that was just to make it for 360 and ps3...It took another 1-2 years to make the ports for next gen consoles, then even a bit longer for PC. It's been 7 years since they released RDR and they just finally released a video for RDR2. 7 years! And even RDR2 is still not as big as Identity plans to be and it still ain't done, and won't be for atleast another year if not longer. How people are sitting here in forums asking way smaller developers to make their games, and expect it done in a fraction of the time it takes Triple-A to make a fraction of the game they have to make. If PC gamers wanna have better games than consoles that can push gaming to it's full potential then they have to support it. Do people not realize, that if you have a much smaller development team with little capital of their own, they can't make bigger and better games in a 1/4 of the time, with a fraction of the costs. Instead, they need help from their player base. Unfortunately Rockstar don't have to wait for funding, but then are making the game they want. They can make it for consoles which will affect how big the game is, then port to PC which will add things but not utilize pc's full potential like Identity plans to. Identity is literally planning on utilizing every little nook n cranny that PC can push. And they won't be able to do it without US! You got ppl throwing in $15-$30 and the like, and expecting what they say be taken into consideration because they "invested". Your not even paying them what the game is worth. Your being cheap and trying to help yourself by pretending to "invest" Your just pre-ordering the game...and for a pittance of what it's worth. Ppl like me that throw in more than $60 are invested...We didn't think about getting something amazing for cheap, we paid our due and threw in more to HELP. And it's fine that you wanna save money, but then don't act like you put so much risk in, and their lack of giving what you expect, gives you the right to call a Waaambulance. I mean if I was gonna complain about anything it would be, how come we throw in 6-10 times more more than people droppin $15-30$ and we get only a thousand more. I mean as big as this game is it wouldn't hurt the longevity in the slightest to give people a lil more. I mean it's only digital money (nothing). I'm fine with the apt and car, just a lil unhappy with the amount of digital money we get for the real money they got. That's my only gripe, and I never even mentioned it till now...It wasn't that big a deal, just woulda made ME feel more appreciated. That I have a right to an opinion to, not tellin them they aren't moving fast enough for my liking. Seriously the negative posts have probably scared away more money than the $15-$30 the whiners put up to "help". I've been on PC since only Feb/Mar and even I realize that PC games can't fulfill their potential if the investors (the gamers) want to pay the least amount possible for your games...more money to develop...more game. Less money to develop...lot less game to play, lower quality.
  2. I'm kinda partial to the SN-95 body style 94-04 mustangs. My uncle had a Metallic Candy Apple Green 1990 Lincoln Mark VII LSC. They were essentially like stretched fox body mustangs w 5.0 H/O Ford engine but they were the epitome of luxury back in those days and had such big nuts. One of my favorite and most underated cars.
  3. Ok I just got ahold of another monitor. What I want is to play my games in full screen on my 4k monitor, and have my twitch stream on the other monitor in 1080p so I can stay aware of my stream. Right now I have to use my phone and it sucks. Is there anyway this can be done? I have no clue how to set this up, if it is possible and could use some help, if someone would walk me thru it. My Discord is Drop me a msg if I'm not sitting in one of my channels.
  4. Let me break it DOWN for you. Why would you wanna break it for him? Ok now let me see if I get this right... You jump from the same plane (repetitive), parachute down, albeit to different spots, to find guns. (repetitive) The same circle moves in bringing everyone closer together to bring the match to a conclusion (repetitive). Now there are plenty of elements about PubG that are repetitive. What changes is all the stuff in between...The plane takes different paths to let players jump out and go to different places to find guns. The circle starts at different places but always shrinks till nothing or someone wins first. You still go through different areas looking for weapons, no matter where you land. When it comes to me, I always have the absolute worst luck when it comes to finding weapons and supplies. I can search an entire apt complex and find less than a guy goes in one house and come out with 3 weapons with all attachments, meds, and all kinds of other goodies. The only thing consistant about PubG for me, is I spend more time searching and moving into the circle than having fun. PubG is probably one of the most repetitive games with very lil to it that is doin extremely well. Because people expect more, if it was just this and that's all we were getting. You can bet that eventually most will go to other things and it will have its dedicated player base that swear on map over and over, even though you land in different spots. It's just a big map and you do things in different areas around that map, depending on where you land...But you do the same exact thing every game. And people tend to usually stick to the same cheesey strategies as long as they benefit them. Like constantly goin for the AFK kills so they can pretend they are so awesome...Cause it really takes some set of skills to kill people just standing there. Or the people who will get to the center of a circle and kill people trying to cross the line. I've been killed by that damn line more than I have from ppl. Yea to kill people like that isn't cheesey in and of itself, but when that's ALL you can do...It gets...oh, what's that word....dare I say repetitive. People aren't looking to have a blast and play a game, they wanna "win" that chicken dinner...whatever that means. I think that is stupid btw. You get nothing for staying alive till the end, no digital nothings, nada. Every game is repetitive, all of them. It's how developers go about filling up the space in between that makes really good games. And PubG while a great mod and spin off game idea, they need alot more follow thru and execution if they wanna keep this momentum going. It seems to me that Identity is a mod spin off game as well from atlis life. The mod came from the idea of wanting to play a game like that. Whether the idea to make Identity came before or after the mod. It's almost the same thing as PubG in essence.
  5. Oh I am sure there ARE crowds of decent like minded GAMER'S out there...hell if I can find any though cause they are far and few between lol.
  6. There will be criminal records to an extent, You can go to jail so I would assume they have to keep track of it some way. I doubt they wanna keep records forever, So maybe if no crimes are committed for a period of time it will eventually leave your record, maybe it will just go to your personal stats. They haven't specified in depth how the law enforcement system will run but I would assume you can't rob a bank and then the next day apply for a job in law enforcement. Besides the fact that banks aren't ownable bank teller would be more of an NPC based job. As I don't see Bank Teller Sim coming to the video game market any time soon mostly because it would be more fun to watch paint dry, grass grow, water boil...I could go on but I think you get the idea. I'm sure whatever they decide to do will be for the best experience possible.
  7. If that were true then there wouldn't be so many trolls, just playing games to piss people off and get a rise outta them. Also there wouldn't be an abundance of players on shooter games that hide or play any cowardly way they can as long as they get the "win" that's all that matters. A WHOLE LOT out of 30 years I been playing games and it's gotten a whole lot worse in the last 10 or so can believe what you like, and your experience may be that you meet alot of cool people...but for me they are far and few between. People seem to want hundreds of friends, as a sort of validation of their life, they usually only play with a specific few people.
  8. I don't have the capacity to get into this right now but you can lay blame on the players...if we didnt buy shit for the sake of buying shit then it wouldnt sell. They do it because they can get away with it. That's what the industry has become. And gaming on pc for 6 months has shit to do with anything. I been playing console for over 30 years. I was simply using the analogy to explain to you how long it took them to optimize the ps2 components that were pretty much the same all the way thru. That's just one set up being optimized over years...PC optimizing is harder because of trying to get optimizations out for every different configuration. I'm by far not saying that there aren't lazy, people taking advantage...but that's not the have these indie developers trying to make games that Triple A companies take years to make...and the players rush them and bitch n complain about this that or the other, and then they usually want it at a way cheaper price but they want twice the game of that on console...well if you want it then you have to pay for it...sry bud that's unfortunately the way of the world and it won't ever change till WE band together as GAMERS and make them. We are too busy with the pc vs console measuring contest. Or the many other measuring contests in between.
  9. Think about that for a second...So even after reading that there are millions and trillions of optimizations for all the different component specs out there. If all they did was optimize they would never get to make any games. You must not know how PC's work and what it takes to optimize. It takes developers years to pull all the potential out of consoles...hence why GTA 3 did not look as good as San Andreas...Same console generation but as technology evolved they learned how to utilize what they had to work with alot better than when it first came out. Which is pretty much how things in life go. You suck at things at first but practice makes perfect...Hhmmm that must be where that saying came from...Who'da thunk it.
  10. I'm not even sure how to reply to this...The little girl comment was just a metphor, not to imply that most people here are female...just that they are acting like young lil females that scraped their knees...and not video gamers...As for the spend time in the game industry comment and the rest. Is that for meant for me?
  11. People have seem to forgotten why we play games...I play games to kill time, pass the time...key word is "time"... I too have grown bored of Pubg, too many inconsistencies. I am so sick and tired of people acting like winning some glitched out video game means there life hasn't been wasted up until this point. WTF! You don't base your self worth on having good luck with the hit box lotto. I have video of me waiting on stairs for a guy to come up, I knew he was there, he didn't know I was there. As he comes around the banister I slide out and my gun is literally in his face, as he comes towards bullets literally would have to go thru his face to come out of my gun. And yet 5 or 6 shots thru his face, with blood so I know I hit him, and he doesn't die but when my pinky toe gets shot off...It's ME that drops?!!?? I know everyone at some point or another has had this type of stuff happen. When the game doesn't exactly line up and what you see isn't quite what happens... Now when I play baseball, whether we win or lose is completely up to US, our skill our teamwork...Games arent based on skill they are based on your luck of inconsistencies going your way. Or hit box lotto as I like to call it...There are too many inconsistencies in video games for people to actually think that it's all them, and they are just that good...I've noticed alot of bullying on gaming today. People who have played a game since inception making fun of people that "suck" cause they literally got it a day ago...Now we all know once a noob plays for the same time they could be just as good or better. But they need an esteem boost, so they make fun of a noob cause he has less time in a game, like that makes them less of a person. That's why we make fun of people. Cause we feel insecure and want to feel better about ourselves. Apparently playing video games is as mature as the bus ride to 2nd grade...Yo mom was so fat she jumped in the air and got stuck! But with gaming... it's you suck so bad and I'M SO GREAT, so my life HASN'T been wasted. I can honestly say Gaming is changing towards a direction I dont wanna be a part of...I play for the glory, fun, competitiveness of battling against a good equally skilled or better team. I don't wanna play people below my skill so I can "win' because I need to pretend my life means something again. I want to earn my win, and not by using exploits in the games mechanics. People have forgotten why we play games. The difference between me and the posers... Let's say I have a record 6 kills in PubG (for shits and giggles) I got all my kills playing the game, moving in to the circle and winning the gunfights I got into. That's skill...Now the poser will say he got 8 kills and you suck blah blah blah...But what he doesn't say that is that EVERY ONE of his kills was gotten from people AFK from the plane. That's what a poser is...Someone who pretends and unfortunately gaming is infested with them. I get a kick out of people trying to inflate their self esteem by how well they can exploit a record to reflect what they want it to, not just play and it reflects what you can actually do. And I actually disagree with the game mode thing for some games...Like Black Ops, I bought that game for zombies(game mode) I had always hoped they made Zombies a stand alone game so I didnt have to keep paying 60 to play a fraction of the game I was buying. It's not so much where it comes from but what they do and add to it to make it, it's own actual game. If PubG was a bit more in depth with more maps and consistency. It could be a great game that stemmed from a mod for a mode. But with people eating up what lil they have...Why go all out and make a great experience when they can half ass it and still make oodles of money. That's what's wrong with people today always looking for the easy. Hard work is under estimated.
  12. There is PROOF! Do people seem to think, that everyone that makes a game starts out with most of a game made...before they ask for help...You guys do realize that they came up with the concept, did the work, some proof of concept stuff...then they get funding to start the project (kickstarter) that's called "start up cost" You dont decide to open a restaurant and then next day your making grub for ppl...You gotta set it up, after you plan it...while your building your restaurant how do you "prove" your opening a can't exactly make a meal...the act of building is usually the proof. If they were trying to build Identity in a garage I wouldn't believe it...then I would think it's a scam. With this Idea if they make it work would net way more money than screwing some people. The proof is in the buildings they rented. Why waste that money for a scam, not like a ponzie scheme where ur making millions and u set up in an office. You need somewhere to work...there is plenty of proof if you have any clue how a new IP is started.
  13. Wow...if you aren't part of the problem then your a part of the solution and I WASN'T TALKING TO YOU. lol you need to calm down and comprehend...don't assume please...I am just sick of all these people that have thrown down bare minimum (15-30) whining when there are so many more people needed, and it deters ppl from having faith in this game...If you weren't complaining then I wasn't talking to you. I usually reply to what someone says and then go on to the rest of my thoughts as they come. I'm talking in general to the people drawing negative publicity to the game. Making people thinks it's like others that have failed... This game can very well fail if it recoeves too much bad publicity. Considering the modules are not a requirement, they WANT us to have something to play with while they make the game, which also serves them as well as give us something to check out, feedback, bugs stuff like that. I would hate to see this game become No Man's Sky simple because it caught a bad rep from CHEAP impatient ppl. If it did fail I would hold it against all the shit talkers and not the developers...
  14. That's not looking at things from both sides, thats looking at it like any help ruins the game...And there is gonna be so much shit to do and "work your way up to" That getting any pledge more than 30 is worth it...If only for the sake of helping a game you wanna see come to fruition. 500 gets you only 4000 and blah blah blah...With all the stuff you can do 4k isn't gonna put a huge dent in "working your way up". It's just a lil boost. I wouldn't suggest getting a pledge simply because what it can do for YOU either...Get it to show your dedication to supporting this awesome idea. Can't afford to donate more that's fine, do what you can...But don't tell others that it isn't worth it. That just isn't true...I felt it was worth what I pledged. If you were just donating to get ahead then no, it's not worth donating more cause you don't get that far ahead...But you help development alot with the collective of support. How fast can the game be made if we had 20,000 ppl giving 100 or more, instead of 20,000 ppl giving 30 dollars. That's a huge leap in what can be made and how fast it can be made...
  15. The whole point of a scam is to put as lil as possible into screwing other people...Not actually doing the things required to actually make something, and then have it fail on you...Let me ask a question...Let's say you guys on here crying, actually decided to motivate yourselves to become something more than people bitching cause they pledged and things aren't moving fast enough. Let's say you decided to go all in take a risk to make your dream come true. So you get some good people together to get things started. You go through this that and the other to get thru kickstarter. Now you got some the real work begins...So for the foreseeable future your going to be putting in massive amounts of work and getting minimal pay if you want your project to succeed. Of course you could be like the games of the past that failed because you pay yourself more than you can afford to assuming the game will succeed, since you made it this far...But let's say you continue to live off of minimla wage because YOU, more than ANYONE...wanna make your dream a reality. Now imagine after all you go thru, these KIDS that obviously don't understand the concept of business, that pledge a minimal amount. Start drawing all kinds of negative attention becasue after all you put in...Why should you see things come together the way you want...You only put in everything! These people who have basically nothing invested, but enough to pretend they wanna "help", somehow think they have a right to complain about how you are going about trying to make your dream come true...And how dare you not listen to the expert opinion of someone who isn't doing it themselves but trying to tell you how to do things right...Cause they have so much experience with their minimal investment. Pledging anything doesn't give you the right to tear them down because you think things aren't moving fast enough for your liking. So to recap...After you pour your blood sweat and tears into a project to claw your way into making your dreams finally come true. Are you gonna put alot of stock in people who "pledge" then they have anything invested into this as you do...Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. If more people really felt empathy, and not just sympathy as your crap on someone's dream... this might not be such a horrible world. But it seems easier to pretend to yourself you "know" what they are going thru and somehow you could do it better, and they must be doin something wrong.
