  1. I finished my first play through in about 52 hours (Normal mode).  46 quests completed 2 botched. Good game  if a bit short. Replayability is moderate as it stands now. I have started a solo (no companions) game. I am sure I will do one more playthrough after this one but I doubt it will go beyond that. Combat is on the easy side even for someone like me with low skill. Loot is extreme there is so much stuff lying around that it defeats the item durability mechanic. I never purchased a consumable or ammo of any kind. About mid way through I switched from cautious sniper to spray and pray with combat rifles. Even with no aiming skill and just dumping rounds on target I never came close to running out. The AI is pretty weak making the sneak skill questionable. The story and writing are good if a bit predictable at times. Overall I really like the game I am hoping they will add more over time with DLC. If you are into combat this game really isn't it. The focus is all on the conversations and the stories in the terminals.

  2. OK I am at a point where I can't tell if my game is bugged or this is standard so I'm checking here. Specifically Byzantium quests. I attempted the retirement community quest was attacked by the mechs and the entire area turns hostile including the quest giver. I tried the quest where you are sent to assassinate the scientist. I decided to spare her and send her to work with Phineas. The guard stops me and I have no option but to fight including the scientist I just spared. And likewise the entire district is now hostile to me. Is there any way to complete a quest in Byzantium that does not turn the entire district hostile?

  3. Most of the reviews Ive seen have been about normal difficulty. I think if you limit fast travel (or exclude it) and you role play more than just attempt to complete quests this game will be far longer. I haven't tried the supernova difficulty but no doubt that is going to add quite a bit of time as well. Replay-ability seems pretty high as well. I just failed a companion mission while sorting inventory and upgrading weapons. I found that annoying but without scum saving you will need to replay the game if you want to see it all. Its a really good game so far only time will tell if it holds up tho. Im at about 26 hours and I have only visited a couple planets. Of course I play pretty slow.

    a silent protagonist is better for role play in a roleplaying game so that the player can decide on the accent and other vocal qualities for themselves in line with the character they're playing.

    I agree. If the main character has a name and backstory of their own i.e Geralt of Rivia then the voice the developer provide is fine. If you create your own character then the voice needs to be the one in your own head. If they insist on having voiced dialogue I would prefer to at least have an option for which voice I hear.

    Don't you think they will just do a generic mans and womens voice sans any accents? I mean why would a girl with red hair and a scar sound any different that a black haired girl with a tatoo? 

    Honestly the first character will sound fine no matter how you build it. I am only thinking of replay ability. If you can create a wide variety of characters and  play styles then it stands to reason people will play the game more than once. Hearing the same voice will break immersion for many of us. Of course if the game is as good as it looks it will be a minor issue. Still offering a few different sounding voices say 2 male 2 female could help a bit. Adding a few more with each dlc would greatly expand the options. Of course cost is a factor and probably the main one. How about a pitch or tone adjuster slider that might work as well. I wouldnt mind playing a squeaky voiced tough guy named Alvin ;P 

  6. The jungle island we flattened can be reached by taking the the west nether slipstream until it ends in sandstone columns. Then continue west till you reach the outter ring. Head south to the 6th portal it has purple concrete around it you cant miss it. We have had good success however pretty much everyone on the server needs to be at this location or in the nether/end. Even having one player else where overworld will almost guarantee no spawns. Also please do not alter the island. The wiki says grass and leaves yet all our spawns have come on the logs. Grass allows other passive mobs to spawn.  Brinicio and I have claimed extra parrots for other players so feel free to ask in chat we are happy to share.

    Tried to find some parrots on the test server, but no Luck yet.

    yeah i looked for a little bit as well. apparently they can spawn in existing jungle biomes but its about the same chance as new horses spawning in. I think thats right at any rate I feel they are going to be pretty rare.

  8. I can not contain my excitement any longer. The long awaited update to Minionland is in the works. The mighty  Rodzyn has been working on the update and even opened the test server.

    You can find the address in the Redmine news. Feel free to pop in and find any bugs/glitches that have been over looked. The more we find now the smoother the transition can be.

    I am sure an official announcement is in the works so keep an eye out. If you have been waiting for a good time to revisit your claim or start a new project your wait is almost over.

    The major changes will be concrete (looks great) parrots (unlikely but possible) and the new crafting book (super useful) 

    As you can tell I am stoked. Hopefully this will bring about a spark of renewed interest in the server. It would be nice to see some of the O.G. builders come by to see the progress thats been made.

     

  9. Certainly this has been covered already but I am having trouble finding it. I am looking for a mod that increases the frequency and/or number of perk points to compliment Ordinator. Any help or links to the relevant thread would be appreciated.
