Thought you said Star Wolves for a moment. Loved that series. Dont know Space Wolf.
Warhammer 40000 Space Wolf.

I've played Star Wolves series. Interesting, though the RPG elements are a bit hard to understand. For a space game, you have to play it more as Diablo... Tease one or two enemies away from the mob, wipe them out, repeat.

For some reason I'm reminded of that post you made many years ago when Sins of a Solar Empire was the new hotness. As I recall, you'd amassed a ridiculous fleet of literally dozens of capital ships to attack the enemy homeworld or something. :D

Why am I not remembering this stuff!?? I played that game to death. Thank you. My life is bits and flashes. For 31 years my wife was my brain. We both agreed on that. I fend for myself now and I think Ive grown some grey matter. Though I dont recall last year at all much.

Ha! Well try to guess then! I think that back in the day I was talking about Silent Hunter 3, Guild Wars (I had a GW avatar), Eve Online...I played a lot of open-ended games. Oh and I loved talking about old 8-bit and 16-bit games.

People might find this interesting, an article from SCS Software (they make the trucking simulators) called Under the Hood: Explaining SSAO :
Today we'd like to explain a new graphical feature that we are introducing to our games with update 1.38. The article is very technical - we have asked our programmers to help out, and the explanation is quite complex. However, we felt that it may actually be interesting for at least some of the people in our audience to be exposed to this material - to see that what is happening under the hood of a game engine involves a lot of research and hard work of our programming team. In addition to the technical details, we thought that providing the context and explaining the performance trade-offs may be useful and important for most of the players.

The TLDR summary of the text below is that Screen Space Ambient Occlusion is a cool new but performance-heavy technique to enrich the rendering of our game world. You do not have to use it if you feel it lowers performance too much for your liking, or you may like it and can afford to trade a few frames per second for improved shadow and depth perception. The effect may be subtle, it mostly works on subconsciousness level, but once you get used to it, it may be hard to go back. It is another milestone in our lighting/shadowing improvements plan that we are now executing, to be followed by new HDR light processing and introduction of more normal-mapped surfaces in upcoming updates.

For a moment I thought this must be an old article on when it first came out. Then I saw it was a new article. Still wondering why they posted it. Is it just new to their games? I mean its been a thing since 2007 or so.

ATS/ETS graphics never looked quite photo-realistic unlike some racing games where only limited amount of real-estate needs to be loaded and rendered. To keep the frame rate up, I guess they just never implemented eye-candy stuff into their graphics engine.

I remember that they stated a long time ago that they were aiming to make it as accessible to as many players as possible, so they kept their requirements low. It is actually a bit of a wonder how popular their games have become, so perhaps they were on the right track. I have had Euro Truck Simulator 2 installed for years but finally uninstalled it since I'm really focused on the American Truck Simulator. I'm very much looking forward to Colorado being released maybe late this year, but I suspect I might be too old and gnarly to enjoy playing by the time Florida is released :roll:

Oh, that reminds me I need to check out ATS using my new wheel that arrives tomorrow. I might be less prone to driving off the sides of roads :shock:

I could be wrong, but you may be mistaking those games for old shovelware titles aimed at the audience you seem to be referencing. Euro Truck and American Truck are pretty unforgiving with a serious trading/business model that requires quite a grind and hours and hours of long, slow play sessions. It's hard for me to imagine it being the only game Donny plays on his Celeron-based laptop besides Deer Hunter 3.

not what i was thinking. more tp my point was these have a contingent of core players who are, to some degree and more or less, devoted to this title - spending many, many hours in it to the exclusion of most any other. from what i have observed - and this is only anecdotal; i don't have any data on this - mono-title players don't have cutting edge systems in the first place if those games don't absolutely require such. i suspect higher-end systems might be significantly more prevalent amongst, say, X-Plane devotees.

Fair enough. Actually, given what you all know about my collection, I think you'd be shocked to find how low-spec my machine is. But then again, if you look at the 20+ games I've finished during the pandemic, they tend to be a range of short adventure and puzzle games from the past 10 years.

Another way of looking at it is that a truck simulator is still a relatively niche thing, so it doesn't need all the latest bells and whistles. But here's a company who has made steady improvement to its titles, and until recently was still using DirectX 9, moving to DirectX 11, and recently overhauled their sound to use FMOD. You don't often see that level of commitment and improvement.

I didn't see this game in your impressively voluminous list, and suspect you'd quite enjoy it if you're not averse to an ARG adventure-puzzler:

I've looked at it, and I saw this recommendation again recently, but I actually haven't ever developed a tolerance for or interest in AR games. I think it's because I imagine the websites and such disappearing before I ever get around to it.

All I hear is that damn new item ding . I dont know what to delete any longer or what to use in crafting or whats neat or old or collectible or anything .Im so tired of it. Why cant they just triple my space so I can forget about it for a few years like when it was new. :)

I forgot the little tedious stuff that was in Fallout its been so long...The absolutely horrible inventory that shows only 3 or 4 items at a time or the teeny tiny little buttons you have to click for everything. I can open my inventory with I as normal but nope cant hit I again to close it..have to click the teeny tiny little button. All screens are that way. Want to rest...its in the pipboy not the R key.

I know I know its old. It had innovative stuff in its day. I was there. I know. I loved it.One of my top games ever. But going back after 23 years or so is tough...its like C&C and how you build stuff and such. Fine at the time but not now. But I still love it. Then again I recall even then how the INV management was fussed at.

I'm perturbed because there aren't any games interesting me at the moment. I don't feel like playing anything too complicated or anything where I have to learn an interface, so I'm just playing the same old boring games I play all the time. I feel like I need to reignite it somehow, but I can't.

I'm getting close with figuring out some stuff on Retroarch that'll make it more useful, but until then I'm borrrreeeeeed.

This has been spring and summer 2020 for a lot of us. I've actually spent quite a bit of time reexamining what I get out of games, and asking whether I still get that. Or if I still need it.
