    E3 2018

    Good, honestly. Bethesda should be shitting their pants. I sincerely hope they do announce something new, yet people walk away talking only about Cyberpunk 2077. I want Todd Howard and Pete Hines to sweat bricks. Fallout 4 was a shitshow. It really takes absolutely terrible management to take the foundation that Fallout: New Vegas and Skyrim set and deliver something like Fallout 4.
  2. Wait, when did Gopher uninstall the Master of Disguise mod? Actually, doesn't look like he had it installed at all for his playthrough, just the Mod List videos have it. Strange.. it's in the Mod List #5 description, but it doesn't appear in any of the Let's Play description lists for episodes before or after that.
  3. I wonder if he'll ever do a character that doesn't have an obsession with looting.

    The Capital Wasteland : CANCELLED

    That isn't personal use. You're uploading it to the internet for others to see. I own Fallout 3. I can extract the audio files, put them on my phone as a ringtone, and it'd be 100% legal. There is nothing that Bethesda or those who created the audio can do. I am in the right in that scenario. I purchased Fallout 3, I can do as I wish with the assets that come with the game provided it's for personal use. In the case of Capital Wasteland, it would be. The developers would not be uploading any assets they can't share. They would not be acting unlawfully in any sense of the word. Instead, they would provide a tool that allows the end-user to move assets they own into the mod they downloaded for a game that they own. Again, nothing unlawful. The process of moving assets from one game to another is completely legal, and so is providing a tool that automates that process.

    Death Counter

    Currently we don't have anything being tracked on the server or displayed in the online list. I thought it'd be pretty neat to have a the death count display there (the subject of deaths comes up very often in chat), but adding it to the scoreboard now would mean the count wouldn't be accurate. http://minestruck.site11.com/Tools/statsync.php That is, unless this tool is used. The directions for using it are on the page. The /scoreboard command is actually optimized very well by Mojang. Tracking things doesn't lag the server at all, nor does displaying them in the online list. @Rodzyn, do you think you could add this to the server?

    The Capital Wasteland : CANCELLED

    1. What do you mean by that? I can create a mod that uses the Fallout 3 audio files, upload it without them, and allow people to download it -- that's 100% legal. 2. They wouldn't be redistributing it if they used a tool to import the audio files into the installation for their mod to use. It would never leave the end-user's PC, and the end-user would initiate it.

    The Capital Wasteland : CANCELLED

    The end-user has every right to unpack the archives and convert the file types themselves. It doesn't matter what the EULA says, they are not enforceable when they contain such language. Courts have stated as much, time and time again. If the end-user has the right to do that, then so does any software the end-user installs and runs. All Capital Wasteland needed was a custom launcher to do that work for them. The end-user is clicking the button to initiate it on their own PC and with their own files that they purchased. There is no legal gray area there. It's all 100% legal.

    The Capital Wasteland : CANCELLED

    The original contract stated they were doing voice lines for Fallout 3, and they did. The players who purchased Fallout 3 also purchased those voice lines, which the voice actors were paid for. Contract fulfilled. Just because a player who owns Fallout 3 then decides to use those voice lines in Fallout 4 doesn't mean anything. They have the right to use them like that since they purchased Fallout 3. Bethesda can't do anything, nor can the voice actors. There is nothing unlawful going on, nothing that would win them a case in court. The only leverage Bethesda has is that they have money and lawyers to spare. Even if they're in the wrong, they can still sue the developers of the mod until they give up. It's pretty damn shitty, and definitely something one should think about when the next Bethesda game is released -- you're doing them a favor by buying their games, despite their horrible treatment of the modding community.

    The Capital Wasteland : CANCELLED

    It makes no sense though. Courts have ruled, time and again, against this type of enforcement by game studios. If the mod authors aren't bundling the audio with their mod, they aren't doing anything illegal. The rights over the audio only extend as far as commercial use. For personal use (which this mod would fall under if it imported audio from Fallout 3 on the user's PC), neither Bethesda nor the voice actors have any authority.

    Server Update

    I'm still in favor of replacing mods with data packs/command block scripts wherever possible. Less dependency on mods is always a good thing.

    The sollution to Gophers crowding issue?

    There really isn't any need for plugins or commands. The real solution is for Gopher to actually log in and play. There's another YouTuber out there called VintageBeef, and he opened up a new Minecraft server about a week ago. It's open to all his Patreon subscribers and he makes YouTube videos of himself playing on it, along with all his subs. There's no claim system either, just a group of moderators. You don't see people crowding around him. You don't see people always messaging him. You don't see people bothering him. Why? Because when he logs in, it's just a normal event. He's really just another player in that regard. When Gopher logs on Minion Land, it's treated like some special event. It's announced ahead of time, there's hype built up around it, you get people logging in who haven't in months/ever, he almost always streams it, etc.. the only thing missing are fireworks. That is the problem. That's why there's always a crowd.

    Server Update

    Don't think QuickTree is needed, as I'm sure there's likely a viable replacement that works in 1.12. Announce is in the same boat, replaceable by command blocks. ShopKeepers is available in 1.12.. but I'm not sure why we even need it. Custom villagers can be spawned with commands to achieve the same purpose. CrazyEnvoy (likely used for the supply crates in The End) isn't needed either. Something like WorldReset could do a more effective job. As for DragonDropElytra, I'd still rather see Elytra and Dragon Heads added to the Ender Dragon's loot table, along with even the Dragon Egg -- Elytra @ 100%, Dragon Head @ 100%, Dragon Egg at 25%. Lib's Disguises could be replaced by a 1.12 compatible mod as well, like iDisguise.

    How many of you still play Skyrim?

    Haven't played Skyrim in ages, but I am playing Morrowind. Maybe once Skywind is released, I'll decide to go back. But not until then.

    Gopher Dumbed Down : Map Markers

    Exactly. This is exactly what most people mean when they say TES (and Fallout) is being dumbed down. Everything Bethesda does to simplify their games is done in a way that removes complexity. Some of it is to our benefit, but a good number of it is good complexity (read: deep, not shallow). The removal of spellmaking, consequences, skills, etc.. Even the introduction of expansive voice acting and, in the case of Fallout 4, a voiced protagonist. There are so many meaningful conversations you have in Morrowind that simply couldn't work in any game since. Speaking with Vivec or Dagoth Ur absolutely required a complexity that's too expensive to afford when voice actors are introduced. And Bethesda is doing this for a very specific reason: dumbing down their games is profitable. They bring more people in by making things too simple than they lose by ditching the complexity from previous games. So why would they cater to both? Why would they spend time and money offering us choices when they can save time and money catering to the larger, more profitable side? This is why Fallout 4 was made by a team of just over 100 people while other AAA games are often developed by teams that are 3-5x larger. 10x larger in the case of The Witcher 3. Bethesda is cheap. Bethesda is lazy. Bethesda is greedy. We've been saying it all along, but few were ever willing to listen. They aren't going to change and their games are going to continue on the trend that's been set.
  15. I envisioned rewards for most of the advancements when I first suggested custom ones. XP would be great for a general reward, but some should certainly have unique rewards. Killing X number of mobs could grant you their head, for instance (another set of things that can be added just as easily as advancements).
