Quote from: Bozobub on February 29, 2020, 10:14:13 PMExcept vanilla RimWorld is an excellent game.Opinions are like that, deal with it; not everyone agrees with you. Over 1 million copies sold and "Overwhelmingly Positive" reviews on Steam completely invalidate your drama, that simple. You're whining about a $35 game and $20 *optional* DLC, 3 movies' worth of cash combined, that can potentially give back hundreds, or even thousands of hours of enjoyment, if you like the game at all. And if not, WTF are you buying the DLC for?!Nor could you, I'll note, play a single mod without the base game. Yeah, RW "sucks" soooo much, yet you play your modded game all the same, don't you? Yeah, whatever; talk to the hand...
Quote from: Pangaea on February 29, 2020, 04:36:30 PMRecently I have played The Witcher 3. Like with RimWorld I only use a handful of mods (okay, a bit more in RimWorld, maybe 20, though most are small stuff), but I see people saying they use 200-300 mods. And Witcher 3 is a rather successful game too, that won a GOTY award or two. Not many will call it unfinished or claim that CDPR don't know how to make games.Nay. With any game that has an active modding scene, and with a game somewhat accessible to modding, it will quickly have hundreds and even thousands of mods. It doesn't mean the game is crap or unfinished. It simply means there are a lot of people out there with even more ideas, and they implement some of them. And they generally do it quick, with little or no testing. Whether people prefer to use no mods, a few mods, or everything ever released isn't really a comment on a game's quality. More likely a reflection of people having loved the game and played it a lot, and then wanting to try out some mods to spice it up, have a slightly different gameplay.
Quote from: MengDeYou seem to be under the impression I just played maybe 3 games ever in my life. And funny that you mention this when one of the games I went out of my way to mention is CK2, which has a relatively big mod scene. I also went out of my way to mention I, another individual, enjoy using a lot of mods.I go out of my way to buy certain types of games on PC precisely because I love exploring mods and using as many of them as possible, and not necessarily because I think there's anything wrong with the base game. If my mod list is ever under 20 mods, please call 911, because I can only be sick.Yes, my experience is anecdotal, but it goes to show you really can't have generalized opinion about a game based on your personal practices. If you can't understand that despite everything that has been said in this thread, there's nothing to be done about it.
Quote from: RicRider on March 01, 2020, 08:21:53 AMGood advice, for people. But you are literally talking to zombies on autopilot about their mission to expose the corrupt gaming industry that makes (insert victim/scapegoat here) look bad. At least when I read TrashMan's whining I get the impression he's on a mission to show how Indie game developers are 'criminals' who deserve to be exposed for the 'bad programmers' they are. I don't get the sense that he's a gamer; he's a grifter, plain and simple. A bit like some real world e celebs I know but is probably mad that he doesn't have his own platform and fan base that can create havoc on Twitter for him.
Quote from: Bozobub on March 04, 2020, 08:13:11 AMYou do realize the 1.1 update and the Royalty DLC are completely separate, correct? The game IS being polished over time.
Quote from: TrashMan on March 04, 2020, 05:40:59 AMWould you like me to to call you a yesman? An ass-kissing braindead fanboy? I could and it would probably be more accurate then your unfounded assertions.
Quote from: TrashMan on March 04, 2020, 05:22:48 AMWhy is there such a severe lack of reading comprehension?The number of mods available is NOT RELEVANT. And if almost no one plays your game without 100+ mods

I could and it would probably be more accurate then your unfounded assertions.Also, nobody owes you anything. Even if I have any issues with the current version of RimWorld and the changes in 1.1, I'll reserve that criticism for a more appropriate time and place. Not immediately after release. Not to pump your gravy train of whining. I'm not about to let grifters like you use what criticisms I may have to make your illfounded points and use the data I've got irresponsibly.I enjoy RimWorld 1.1. You sound like you don't and therefore my advice to you is to play something else or wait for mods to update. I wish this forum had a 'mute/block' feature so I could remove the negativity you bring to the table from my life, and also others could do the same thing so you wouldn't have your childish tantrums reinforced. But until that feature is available you'll see people like me disagreeing with you.
Quote from: Pangaea on March 04, 2020, 10:32:38 AMFirst of all, please stop with the personal attacks. It's not needed. If your argument was strong, people would be convinced.
QuoteSecondly, it seems the amount of mods is the core of your argument, but it is apparently only relevant when you talk about it, not when others make counter arguments.
QuoteThirdly, you have no idea about the real statistics, and what you write there is clearly incorrect, merely by looking at downloads of mods from Nexus and Steam (I detest the latter and will never use it, but I digress).
QuoteAdmittedly this is a guesstimate on my part, but it should be pretty solid based on amount of games sold vs amount of mods downloaded on Nexus/Steam: I reckon the vast majority are playing RimWorld with 0 mods. Some are playing with a handful of mods, let's say 5-20. Then you have a small minority with more mods than that. And a very tiny minority with 100+ mods.

Nice stawman.The amount of mods used at once necessary for a good game experience is the argument.
