Equestria at War Comrade 10/13/2020 (Tue) 04:21:37 No. 5159 [Reply] [Last]
Who is your favourite nation in the best HOI4 total conversion? What paths do you think are best? Or anything else? I just played through the Pax Chrystalia content last week, it was pretty fun, though I should have gone after Equestria quicker rather than taking the time to knock out all the other nations in Equus, then I would have had more options as Manehattan for expansion. Also feel free to share any other pony related stuff, longplays, et cetera.

>>5241 I didn't play his route so I don't totally know, but this is the events I got explaining his personality/ideology (such as it is). Apparently his route either has to or just has a path where he makes pony/griffon intermarriage mandatory which is kind of a trip. Also I'm triggered by that person having 1500 political power but not assigning a naval company/chief, I know investing in naval technology is pretty pointless in both EaW and vanilla but still.

>>5313 Because Equestria at War is essentially "My Little Pony suffers from their own WW1", and all that it entails. Although if their is one thing that kinda should be remedied (although it mostly refers to early content), was pushing RL personalities into the mod, i.e. there is a horse Oswald Mosley, a griffon Mussolini, and Karl Marx is called Caramel Marks. The weirdest result of it is Stalin, who exists as one of the founders of Communism in the lore (as Steel Stallion, judging from the name) and as an actual leader in a peasant republic, who comes to power in completely different way opposed to RL, has two expies, and both are completely torn out their context, making their inclusion nothing more than aesthetic.
>>5313 Most countries are a mishmash of cultures/histories, Longsword who I was playing as is the rough history of Nazi-occupied Lithuania, with names/locations based on Finnish. Apparently. >>5315 To be more exact, Equus is more analogous to WW2, with Olenia representing France/Czechoslovakia/Poland and Equestria as the USSR, whereas the conflicts on Griffonia are somewhat analogous to victorian-WW1 era wars of conquest with various other stuff thrown in.

>>5428 But that's not what 'libertarian socialist' represents. Number one, you are conflating it with anarchism which it isn't, it's orthodox Marxism but libertine. So while yes you could present them as having 'excesses' like the people going out and murdering nuns because the state doesn't have enough control, them having an organised campaign of political slavery wouldn't be 'libertarian'. Now look, I think TNO goes a bit overboard on the anti-tankieism, but ultimately, libertarian socialist paths are presented as better and more 'blessed' because they are. I mean are you really that surprised that people find doing political repression and murder to be a bummer? Authoritarian leftism has been a failure in historical terms. Now of course you can say that libertarian leftism hasn't succeeded either, but at the very least it fits modern 'sensibilities' better.

what does bunkerchan think of the Freespace series, meaning descent freespace 1 & 2 plus the expansion silent threat for the original.

Freespace 2, and its open source version remains to this day the crowning achievement of the "Space Sim" genre which it has never really topped, despite having come out over 20 years ago

the storyline is essentially a less personalized version of mass effect, or more accurately mass effect is ripping off descent freespace since it came out like 10 years later. Dead space also has similar lovecraftian themes

Played Freespace and Freespace 2 when I was a kid. Blew my mind at the time because it made space feel big and had a kinda "Newtonian" thing going for it, which was fairly unique for a space shooter since the X-Wing and TIE Fighter games still felt like flying airplanes. I should take a trip down memory lane sometime and try out some of these open-source fan spinoffs.
>>4655 >Blue Planet it's complete trash
>>5202 >complete trash Any reasons why? I mean if somebody liked it, and you think otherwise it would be good to say why.

Anyone else like those 90s space combat simulators? Descent: Freespace and Freespace 2 were fun, and if someone has/makes a Trek themed one would be cool too. Both those games had a great storytelling and fun gameplay (vid related). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mh3nehcI3Jo Wing commander is more star wars than trek. Freelancer is great but needs a lot of modding to fix all it's issues due to being cobbled together and rushed out the door after the main develper self destructed. Starlancer was okay, having shipped on time and budget, which is more that Freelancer can say. The X series is polarizing, people either love them or hate them for how the fun space sim aspects tend to turn into a trade empire building game halfway through. As for more modern space games, you might enjoy Rebel Galaxy, the Startpoint Gemni series, or Evochron Legacy. The Escape Velocity series is a great 2D version of Elite or Freelancer. There's also a decent open-source clone called Naev.
As a Descent fan, I never really could get into the Freespace games. You really need enclosed levels to make those mechanics shine.

>>5394 I don't want to spoil it, there's a check you need to pass during the last conversation that will make something happen. It's also dependent on whether you did a questline for the lady in the wheelchair and her husband. There's a lot more there than just the tankie (who I still think is based because it ties together the theme of needing to let go of the past). Unless you already found it and it didn't do anything for you, in which case idk. To each his own.
>>5401 You can post spoilered posts ya know spoilers Scroll down and see how: https://bunkerchan.xyz/.static/pages/posting.html
>>5402 I know, I didn't want to even post that in case you hadn't seen it, because I being genuinely surprised by it is what really made the ending work for me. I meant the phasmid. Like I said, maybe you did get that and you didn't care for it. It's fine then. But I think it works very well.
>>5401 Oh I know that, I thought an actual separate ending and not just a nice addition.
>>5401 Oh no I did find the bug and even had a nice discussion about mazovian economics and it was a nice moment but it doesnt make up for anything tbh

Opinions on RimWorld? Not OP 10/16/2020 (Fri) 20:02:25 No. 5290 [Reply] [Last]
I think it's a really good game about managing a small community of individuals with different skills, needs and personalities. Warfare in RimWorld is fucking terrifying because every warrior is a guy you have spent hours with, you understand their importance, you know of their relationships, you understand their personalities and if they die theres a true sense or loss there. Vanilla is pretty barren, but there are excellent mods for this. Much recommended for any leftyanon
>>5290 a lot of mods add features and qol improvements that should be in the base game royalty dlc is cool but tbh mods do the job a lot better randy random feels like a completely different game from the other storytellers pretty good addictive game gets ur palms sweaty
basegame is pretty barren but it is a really good platform for modding with lots of open space for turning the game into whatever you want, from making a colony of raiders moving across the planet and razing settlements to exploring the stars in your handmade spaceship and fighting the mechanoid hoards.

>>664 That is really fucking good. Do you have more early 2000s arcade stuff to recommend? That specific period of time is quickly becoming a golden era for me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUP_yAmJbNU (doesn't really fit the bill, but still)
>>684 I played the XX series religiously until Ishiwatari and the rest of AWS betrayed me with Xrd. Ishiwatari's music since Overture hasn't really impressed me, and I get the sense that he might have been a one-trick pony since most of his good themes really just stole riffs from classic heavy metal songs. Guilty Gear Isuka on the other hand has a great little original soundtrack that he had nothing to do with.

Why don't we hear about them more often? Theses OSTs were totally different than japanese ones for consoles at the same time, because of the technology but also in the composition. The MT-32 is my dream machine, I currently own a SC-88 that I used for Touhou and it was... something.
