    Thanks for the video mate. I see you guys added numbers to the health bar as well.. blegh.
    I added the numbers to test damage amounts without having to use Debug Logs. That's not something meant for players.

    Also, stop with the health bar stuff. Regardless of if it goes to public, it helps me with testing.

    I could just not show any update videos then you guys won't have to look at it as often.

    More importantly dot itself jumps around when shot while the sight itself and gun stays completely level.

    Dear pimps, you are spending tens of thousands on mocap on zombie animation could you please buy one $200 airsoft gun toy for you office.
    So your animator and devs could once in their life see what real (well fake) physical gun looks like.


    2. The HP bar sucks even more. Damn it is stupid and childish.

    3. Still no hordes in the game. I for one want to see 1000+ zombie hordes in this game.
    Please try to be less of a jerk. Thanks!

    This isn't a milSim, may want to get used to it as I'm not going to ruin fun gameplay with "realism". I play FPS games primarily in my down time. I know what's current and what isn't. Also, you had better cool it with the thinly veiled insults. I'm not okay with that kind of childish, bratty, behavior.

    Act like an adult and you'll be treated like one.

    Personally I'm more interested in getting things done and in an organised fashion that increases the likelyhood of getting it right the first time (hah, who am I kidding?) and not getting bit in the ass by a design that completely clashes with other planned features.
    The "when" is problematic.

    You can have it fast, good, and cheap. Pick 2.

    A games arc length needs good content though out or it will be considered a grind. Just like some TV or movie series that went a few too episodes too many.

    Making the player slowly feel more empowered as they overcome obstacles is a secret that A16 missed with the endless bullet sponges.
    That's why I'm baffled that some players even want gun parts back.
    There is nothing interesting or epic about those. A number goes up and if the number is higher it's always better than when the number was lower.

    There need to be choices, cool unique weapons to find, decisions on whether to install this or that mod into a slot...

    I want to see heated discussions on whether DPS is better than damage per shot. How accuracy and recoil mods favour one or the other and why this is all wrong and you should be looking at something totally different. =P

    Or hook it up to an actual outside camera so you'll notice when it's getting brighter and you should prepare to go to work.

    Or you could use redneck technology like a hole in the wall with a glass plate put in. Nahhh...

    The whole thing will at best be serviceable. LOL

    I'll no doubt be watching you guin... valued players to see what works... too well.

    I think it's more likely that you can take your Pac Man savegame and continue playing it in X-Com.

    On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd call it a mauve.

    Just to be clear to everyone. We love our game and we want to make the best game we possibly can.

    I pushed for removing and replacing the systems for a reason and it's not because I simply wanted to rewrite it. It needed to be done. While some people may not find it exciting, it doesn't make the changes any less needed or any less great for content creation going forward.

    All of the thinly veiled insults, mean comments, and talking down on us does nothing but add irritation and stress to the process. Honestly, why do some of you talk so rudely to the folks making a game you like? I honestly don't understand it.

    We are people too and are doing the best we can as fast as we can. Don't make the process more painful than it needs to be.

    If you love the game, do me a favor and think about this post next time you want to comment about how you think we don't know what we're doing, or that we're off sipping margaritas somewhere, or that we have 10 new people so we should be moving faster.





    To those that show trust and support, a massive THANK YOU from me personally.
    A football player can run a touchdown but it's much more enjoyable to do when people are cheering you on.
