1. time bomb for your HDD. *especially* if you're a space-challenged SSD player


Yeah, I pretty much HAD to delete FO4 after that went live as I wasn't playing it anymore but it was taking up nearly 100g (iirc). There's a spacesaver mod out on the Nexus, of course, but still felt I needed to free up space.

Smoking GNU: LowbrowDeluxe: Side note:  You cannot stop once you start this process.  When populations start dying off from chemical processing your energy tanks and you're suddenly -300 energy with a fleet cost through the roof.  I've got 2500 out of 4700 fleet capacity currently, and no way to support it without new victims coming in.  Thankfully I'm almost done with the 109 months of research mega structures took and have access to a ruined Dyson Sphere.  Once that gets up and running it will stabilize even my sprawling empire.  (along with my sectors having been switched over to energy focus for now).  The ruined science nexus will help with further research to be ready for end game crisis, which I'm now at 110 years in and have taken out the first awakened fallen empire and one other for good measure.  Also, I have a multiple crisis mod, so this should get exciting.

Ayaaaaa.

Haven't been able to play Synthetic dawn yet because my mods haven't caught up to the new pieces of the game yet and the game crashes on startup.

Been playing Dragon Age Origins lately.


Be sure to opt in to 1.8.1 if your mods catch up before the patch goes full release, it fixes a few teething problems with Synthetic Dawn.

triptheory: Dimensio: TheotherMIguy: Dimensio: SonsoftheSod: Gave up on Fallout 4 for a second time. I like some of the things they've done, like the power armor change, but the game just leaves me cold. I feel the need to find somewhere cozy to move into, and this game just doesn't have it. Home Plate is utter shiate, and trying to turn a settlement into a base is just isn't doing it for me.

You just need to find the right settlement crafting mods that will let you build nice places:

A house in Sanctuary:

Love the work you put into this.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is a hell of a drug.

It looks fantastic. I simply don't have that kind of patience. I also only have the game on xbone, so I can't imagine doing that with a controller and not a k & m (not to mention I probably can't get those mods on a console).


Snap n' Build (which is the source of most of my architecture) was available on XBone but unfortunately the author pulled it. I have since located some similar building mods that are also, I believe, available on a console.

Much of the decor comes from the Homemaker and Settlement Objects Expanded mods. The former is not available on XBone, but the latter is.

Patience, however, is definitely a requirement. I used to build quick-and-dirty settlements using prefab wooden shacks. I then realized that doing that resulted in settlements that were quick-and-dirty, so I went to more complex structures using in-game assets. They looked nicer, but still run-down and dilapidated. That is when I started looking for actual building mods.

Ooooh, now I know what I'm playing this weekend.  Mashinky showed up today for Early Access in Steam, and it's a train games.   I have a problem with train games....see you in a month or two.

I would like to remind everyone that a true mod MODIFIES the root game files, hence the name "modification", this means that the Sexy Girl mod for Counter-Strike is a mod of a mod, and that the Sexy Girls map for Warcraft III is NOT a mod, I say this as one of its original creators.

I write this because your implication seems to be that "mod" is determined by file size, when any long-time Usenet user would know better.

Oh, and in regards to the mods question, since I'm discussing Stellaris, my current recommended mods out of what I'm using:

Glavius's Ultimate AI Megamod
Auto-Auto Explore
Automated Behavior Adjustment
Autonomous Assembler
Cyberxkhan's Namelist
Epic Galaxies- Size, Shape, and Core
Epic Galaxies- Dim Core
Extra Events Fixed (flagged for 1.8 so it throws an error on start, but works)
Faster FTL
Glub Glub - Fishbowl Portraits
Gods and Guardians
Guilli's Planet Modifiers
LEX - Leviathan Events Xtended (mixed feelings.  They're a weird bunch and the tone feels different from main game)
More Events Mod (excellent)
Multiple Crises
No Mining Station Maintenance (I get so tired of back and forth twiddling to balance energy and mineral space mines)
Risa's Unofficial Patch to 1.8.1

Haven't used yet but looks promising:  Enhanced Robomodding.  There literally aren't enough traits to make use of the max number of robomodding points and none of them are 'fun'.  This makes it slightly better.

chaoswolf: Non Sequitur Man: Apparently I've decided that I'm not pulling out enough hair from my head. I recently re-started playing Alundra on epsxe and Riven from the MYST series, I had to quit Alundra due to travel years ago, so I've rekindled my frustration. Whee.

While looking for a Diablo clone, discovered Torchlight 2 and have been spending waaaay too much time on that. If anyone could recommend a good hack-n-slash I'd be most thankful.

Might look at Grim Dawn if you haven't already. It got several play-throughs out of me. Think an expansion is about to drop as well.

I'm on my last run of FO4. I've apparently averaged more than 4 hr/day since release. To say I have no life/have a problem is probably an understatement. Good thing my wife still loves me.

 I was gonna spend the weekend engineering my new Corvette in Elite Dangerous, but Hurricane Nate is heading directly for my apartment, which loses power in a stiff breeze. I'll probably be staring at my dead computer in the candle light for most of the weekend.

Copy pasta'd for testing...eventually

I tried a ship one that seemed promising, but micromanaging fleet comp at that level became a hassle, I'll keep my vette/cruiser swarm

Holy shiat....I haven't thought about that Buck Rogers game in a long time.  my ex and I used to play the Sega port of that one...including one "staycation" where we made a pile of sofa and "papa san" chair cusions in the middle of the living room and alternated between boning and playing that game for about a week.
I regret nothing.


this weekend I will probably be working on unlocking crap in BF1.  still have to destroy one more plane with a light machine gun.

My 15 year old daughter and I have been cruising through Left 4 Dead 1 and 2 and all the DLC this week. My son and I blew through these when he was the age she is now. She has been playing games for a while but this is her first FPS with some horror/gore involved. She'd been standoffish up till now but has embraced it with a passion. I have enjoyed watching her play and how she plays identical to her brother in everything down to the character she plays and her preferred load out. He is coming over tomorrow for dinner and I am putting them on together to watch them fight over it all.
 
2017-10-06 11:15:28 AM  
I'm back to playing Tropico 4 after fiddling around with the Black Ice mod of Hearts of Iron 3. I really enjoyed playing as Iraq and fighting for independence from the British with help from the German and Italian Air Forces, but the game kept crashing on me so I gave up and went back to a game that loads in under a minute and provides immense instant gratification.
 
2017-10-06 11:15:31 AM  

xaks: I've also been looking into the massive shiatfest that has been the release of Bethesda's "Creation Club"

1. time bomb for your HDD. *especially* if you're a space-challenged SSD player
2. it's the exact opposite of what they originally said it would be....it's poorly copied free mods that you have to pay for
3. Skyrims's are slightly less liquid ass than Fallout 4s, but only slightly. The ass is a thicker liquid, I guess
4. The charge cash money for the 'credits' for this crap, and upsell you on bundles THAT way, too

It's pretty much a double-fisted middle finger faceplant all the way around


I have already installed a mod that removes the "Creation Club News" window from the Fallout 4 main menu.

Also, I do not know which did it but some mod that I have installed adds a dollar sign in front of the Creation Club option in the menu. The dollar sign also appeared in the Creation Club News window before I modded it out. I found that amusing.

I considered taking advantage of the free-for-one-week "survival" mod for Skyrim until I found a comparison of it with free survival mods available from the Nexus that found that, while the CC mod was better integrated with the game, the free alternatives have more features that make them a better choice.
 
2017-10-06 11:17:14 AM  

SonsoftheSod: Since someone mentioned mod size above, one of my favs is a tiny little mod for Skyrim called Wet and Cold. All it really does is add some extra AI behaviour and visual effects depending on the weather, like visible breath and NPCs putting on hoods etc when it's snowing. It adds an incredible amount of atmosphere to the game, and I can't really play without it, anymore.

Glad to see the Script Extender and SkyUI  for the SE are in alpha, at last.


That's the neat kinda immersion shiat I like getting. FO3 has that mod to remove the green tinge, or the one to add a shiatload more period music to GNR. Oblivion has stuff like Natural Environments (adds a whole bunch of dynamic weather) or Illumination Within (occupied buildings will have lit windows; windows will dynamically darken depending on the sleep schedules of the people inside) or Book Jackets, which pretty much does exactly what it says on the tin, making the various books visually identifiable. It also has a dumb little mod to drop in Patrick Stewart and Sean Bean heads onto their respective characters.

I had a lot of fun with dual wielding pistols and stacking attack speed.  Basically turn yourself into a machine gun.  It was a bit of trouble against large groups, but great against single targets.  I eventually stopped with it when I got to the Room of Death - which is nothing but large groups and locked doors.

The second one I had fun with was a retaliation build.  It absolutely tore through melee enemies, but it didn't have a lot of direct damage so for magic only bosses you might have to sit there a while and chop them down.  It was absolutely unkillable though; I went through all of Act 4 and a couple of the roguelike dungeons on hardcore with that build - and survived even though I had never run that content before.
 
2017-10-06 11:36:04 AM  
Finished Terraria. What a great game. was able to slaughter expert mode with all my end game gear in no time flat. I may start an expert mode game from scratch (but I will keep my wings. I can't go back to having no movement. I can't do it)

Picked up both Golf Story and Stardew Valley on the Switch. Stardew is as great as ever. Golf Story is super charming.
 
2017-10-06 11:41:22 AM  

Theaetetus: tdyak: My favorite mod of all time was BF1942 Mod: Desert Combat.  It brought the game into the modern era with tanks, jets, helicopters and everything.  Some of the people that played that mod would bring crazy expensive equipment (fancy joysticks, etc) to play with extreme accuracy.

I played a ton of DC, and yes, had a joystick for flying the helicopters. That was an incredible mod, and I don't think I played vanilla 1942 after it came out.


I played BF2, but jumped back to DC after a while (Some of the servers just had a better community / awesome players).  There was one server that did BF1942:DC Berlin CTF that I thoroughly enjoyed.

I took the time to learn Heli's on the keyboard (damn near impossible), and became an expert in flying a heli in to grab a flag and get out of the base quickly.

I stopped playing the BF series because each new game coming out had less content, smaller maps, fewer players per servers.

Which classes did you pick for dual wielding pistols?

I've found the phys/bleed/vitality conjurer to be an absolute beast, since devouring swarm and curse of frailty synergize so well.  It works well 2 handed melee or ranged. However, the most fun build in the entire game thus far is the Primal Strike focused "Thor" build. The visceral impact of each hit is just so satisfying.
 
2017-10-06 11:43:07 AM  
Still seeking help for my FO4 addiction. Well, seeking isn't the right word. Enjoying. Yes, still enjoying my FO4 addiction. Playing as stealth melee character for the first time, I've just discovered the pleasure of sneaking up on a foe and smashing him or her with a heated super sledge. The urge to build up my gun skills was hard to resist, but this might make it worth it.
 
2017-10-06 11:53:14 AM  
Playing through the re-release of Dragon's Dogma that came out this week.  I love that game, and hope it sells well enough to coax Capcom into making another one.

One of my favorite mods of all time is the Max Payne kung fu mod.  It really changes the nature of the game.
 
2017-10-06 11:55:20 AM  

The Flexecutioner: cant believe i actually grinded 50 Loyce Souls for the Soul of Alhanna. the jump from 35 souls to 50 is mindnumbingly irritating with very few players still summoning help, even with all the item-find bonus gear. i turned her soul in for Eleum Loyce but i was so tired i havent tested it yet. i have enough Petrified Dragonbone to upgrade it i think. he's lvl 206 after blowing a lot of the souls (couple million in the time it took to get from 10 loyce souls to 50) but now its done i wont do it again.

/Dark Souls 2 for those unaware


It's...meh.  The heal vs durability hit ratio is really bad, but it is sorta fun to stab allies.  I liked the lightsaber better, though mostly because its a lightsaber.


Been mostly playing FF14 (prepping for IVALICE~) and divinity: original sin 2.  Fane the many faced god decided he was tired of carrying 216 faces and needing 40 strength so decided to store all the faces in various buckets in the Lady Vengence.  He decided to let the people of driftwood live because...he honestly couldn't be bothered killing them.  All the important people of note were killed that aren't paladins, who know damn well to salute me when I walk by.

Reached Arx last night or so, the framerate drops are relatively awful there because of all the burning buildings.

Finally realized I could make WAY better abilities than I have been using.  When I realized I could combine my summon books with fire/ice/lightning/earth for special incarnate infusions, my incarnate has been a glorious murder machine.  Too bad it seems like the totems completely fall off late game, but they are (sometimes) decent at procing some debuffs...when they attack the right person.

Thanks, I'll put this on my list. It would have really added a lot to Bleak Falls Barrow.
Any other "atmosphere" mods like that? I know someone mentioned a set of mods that turned Skyrim into a horror game - fog on the ground, dampened sound so wilderness encounters are more of a surprise, etc.

Is that a Fallout 4 mod? Not sure if there's a Skyrim equivalent.

Brother and family are still in the computer room, but they're heading out on Monday to their new abode. Kind of sucks - having fun with the kids. But it does mean I'll get to check out the E: Dangerous update. Probably going to haul ass back to the bubble to remove 5 of the 6 heat sink launchers (now that we can finally manufacture ammo) and pick up whatever I need to run the canopy and hull repair drones.

I was going to do some passenger runs for a quick billion or so, but it sounds like the scruffy nerf-herders already "fixed" those payouts.

Continuing my retro gaming stint, I've been playing F.E.A.R., which I have already finished. Now I have moved on to the expansion packs, and,  eventually, the sequels. All of these were offered as a cheap bundle on Steam.
While not a perfect game, FEAR was a lot of fun. No opinion on the expansions or sequels yet, as I haven't played too much of them. Interesting mix of FPS and horror.
I don't have a lot of experience with mods, but I will mention  (again) the New Horizon mod for Stellaris, which sets the game in the Star Trek universe. Great mod, for the music alone.
Happy gaming, all!

So I guess I'll ask this here.  My wife is trying to play a game with me, and we're trying to find out which.  She doesn't want too much blood/killing (hilariously she tried saying she heard borderlands 2 was a good one to play) and she enjoyed castle crashers and to a lesser extent the lego batman games.

I've been thinking about cuphead but I heard that's supposed to be on the harder side.

She also says she likes racing games.

@hammer85: thanks for the heads up. not sure about the durability but he's a mage with Repair and the repair dusts. but also, just about every character gets Repair and i use the spices to lower INT req to 10 if i need to. (i love those spices, hehe, great for taking the 50+ req down to 50.) but also the repair dusts can be bought so its kind of moot either way.

maybe with ring of the evil eye and some other combos the heal thing might be 'interesting' but after grinding that crap i have to use it at least a little before going into NG+.

I've been thinking about cuphead but I heard that's supposed to be on the harder side.

She also says she likes racing games.

Can be on either PC or ps4


Rocket League, maybe?  I've also heard good things about Overcooked and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacerime, but have not played either.

Overcooked or Lovers in another space time.
Probably both.
Overcooked is a co op kitchen disaster game, Lovers is a shooting game where one person mans the ship and another mans the cannons. Both can hold 4 player CO OP.
My latest COop romp has been Gungeon, but it involves a lot of shooting and pixel dodging. Its a pity that Scott Pilgrim didn't get ported to ps4, the ps3 version was a really fun coop brawler.Gaming for me is a coop affair so feel free to suggest interesting coop games you enjoyed as well.

xalres: I'm thinking of getting Cuphead once I get paid again (I'm kid-broke). Anyone played it yet? Yea? Nay? It looks gorgeous and tough as nails.


It's both those things.  Nothing else looks like it, AFAIK, and good God it's hard. You'll get plenty of chances to absorb all of those hand-drawn visuals again and again and again and again and...

SonsoftheSod: Is that a Fallout 4 mod? Not sure if there's a Skyrim equivalent.

I think you're right, it was an FO4 mod. I'll have to look at those as well.

I'm still bouncing between Path of Exile and Fallout 4

I've been playing PoE for years, but always had trouble with a build that could clear maps since I usually do solo self found (before they added that as an option in 3.0).

I'm having a blast in the Harbinger league.  I found two exalts within 10 minutes of each other a few days ago. Lots of uniques.  Just all in all having mindless fun.

Fallout 4 I'm working through Far Harbor. Still haven't progressed the main quest beyond Diamond City.

Also helping my 11 year old learn Stellaris.  He really loves strategy games.  He's probably better at Civilization 5 than I am at this point.

Smoking GNU: Freelancer


I haven't heard that name in years. I got a demo of it in PC Gamer when it first came out. I was sorting through my demo CDs in a final clean out, so I gave everything a shot. Freelancer is amazing. I've been trying to get it ever since, but every time I have money to burn I forget to look for it. Unfortunately, it's not on Steam, and that's where I buy most of my games.

Thanks though, you just reminded me of it and I put it on a small list I started for non-Steam stuff.

Mike_LowELL: Vash's Apprentice: Mike_LowELL: Smoking GNU: Oh, and for mods, i'ma assume you mean really big mods?

I would like to remind everyone that a true mod MODIFIES the root game files, hence the name "modification", this means that the Sexy Girl mod for Counter-Strike is a mod of a mod, and that the Sexy Girls map for Warcraft III is NOT a mod, I say this as one of its original creators.

I write this because your implication seems to be that "mod" is determined by file size, when any long-time Usenet user would know better.

I'M ONTO YOU, MEME THAT LOOKS SUSPICIOUSLY LIKE JIM STERLING

After repeatedly telling myself I had no interest in getting involved with another MMO, I decided to try Tera. 46 levels later I'm playing an MMO again. F*ck.

TheotherMIguy: Playing Warframe in prep for next week's Plains of Eidolon patch: [YouTube video]

Favorite mod? Long War for Enemy Within.


How is Warframe? I heard about it and gave it a shot. Played a few hours, got a little further than that first "boss." I really do like it but as I've been getting further I have the impending sense of a huge grind, and I'm not really looking for that right now.

I spent most of the weekend hopping to 3 different neutron stars about 2500ly out.  I get to the last one and think to myself 'I haven't been to Maia, I should finally get myself meta-aloy and start working on engineers. I also should be able to hop into some never explored systems.'  I route, its only 2500ly to Maia, or 2500ly home.  Maia it is.

Now, with the update, data caches are now legal salvage.  I made stops for degrade signals to pick them up. Small are about 7k.  Large Cache's are closer to 150k. I picked up about 5 large ones on the way  As I'm about 5 hops from Maia, the thought came to me 'waitaminute, I am now carrying something of value, and flying around in a weaponless systemhopper built low mass for higher FSD, and heading for Anarchy.'  I also see that 'goids are popping up in groups of 5 hunting me as I'm scanning my last bits of profit.  From that point on my goal was 'scanning over/time to run/get to the closest station possible'  After hopping into Maia, I quickly found the closest station, and ran.  I escaped two interdictions.  I have the PS4 controller set up that pressing down on the right stick drops speed to 0.  I accidentally pressed down on the stick for one.  I Dropped a large cache to give me a little time to boost my way out.  Apparently one large cash wasn't enough.  dang NPC wanted more.  I escaped, landed and sold it.  Bought meta alloys, plotted a route to farseer, and ran as quickly as possible there in my flying coffin.

After the ~5kly  exploration run, I came back 100mil richer.  I found quite a few terraformables, 2 ELWs and an Amonia world to call my own.

After decking out the Python, I have about 50 mil on hand.  I started to finally work on my less than stellar combat skills.  I am just fine, until I get a wing of 3 after me.  I have been hanging out at a non hazardous RES playing 'guard the NPC'.  Last night I got good enough to watch a pirate drop in, scan it & kill it, before system authority gets to do anything about it.

I guess I'll work on engineers, and community goals now.  I have yet to participate in a CG until now.

Favorite gaming mod...Probably Trouble in Terrorist Town for Gmod.

I've been playing a lot of Dead by Daylight, chainsawing don't groups of jerks as Leatherface and working on my survivors.  Unfortunately, I've been playing killer more because as a survivor I seem to stay hidden too well, and you don't get points for hiding.

Trying to start on my horror games marathon (single player, not DBD) but I'm being sluggish.  Played 15 minutes of Resident Evil 6, its pretty silly.

I don't think you can even buy it anymore. I bought a copy way back when.

And crossfire is an awesome mod for thad game. Adds tons more systems and ships and equipment. And a ton more missions in a really extended single player addition. Although the whole mod is mostly geared towards multiplayer, for which there's still a pretty big community.

I'm hoping you're also familiar with starlancer. Freelancers' prequel.

SpeedRunner, maybe?

My husband and I played Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime and were annoyed with each other within about ten minutes, so YMMV with that one. I liked the concept, but there was no way to play without sharing a single keyboard, and that's pretty much a recipe for disaster.
