Bug Reports / Re: Almost missed the most important part

I'm also thinking of seen turrets.

Bug Reports / Excess red keycard or did I miss something?
« on: May 27, 2020, 12:23 »
Maybe I missed something? I thought I cleared every level I visited.

And yet, I ditched 1 red keycard in Beyond and never had a use for it.

Code: [Select]
CALLISTO L4 -> Military Barracks
Military Barracks - cleared
EUROPA L4 -> Refueling Base
Refueling Base - cleared
IO L4 -> Io Warehouse
Io Warehouse - cleared
BEYOND L2 -> Limbo
Limbo - cleared

This even happens to doors that were blown up out of sight.

Still having this problem. It impairs the quality of controls.
I hope it's just one keycode.

Bug Reports / Almost missed the most important part

Not really a bug, but maybe there's a way to make it more noticeable in this lighting.

Bug Reports / Ghost flashlight

I don't honestly remember how its owner died, but the light stayed there.

I didn't, then I saw the same report on Steam forum, and updated.

The pistol has 4 mod slots, of which only 2 are used.
Am I misreading something?

They should be able to fly above.
This may bring more tactical variety into the game. A bit of 3rd dimension. Especially if the direct control is implemented :D

Even if not, if you hack a drone, this will add a bit of usefulness to them.
They would be even more useful if they extended your field of vision, because what else are war drones good for.

Currently, drones are boring, they don't add a new tactics, they feel just like reskinned weakened grunts. Sure, EMP, but how often do you carry EMP grenades?

Whether hacking-related builds are popular or not is a matter of a game balance, and this is your decision.
Look how popular pets in Nethack are.

That I cannot understand at all. I keep getting confused by it.

Why would direct control be slow? Bot controls would be the same as the character's, except for it only has 1 weapon, no traits, and no inventory... it should be FASTER to play, as you have way fewer options.
Unless you backtrack back to JHGuy for repairs. But if people are having fun, why not let them.

Especially if they grow connected to this bot. Was this your speech about roguelikes design, that adviced to give the player a companion, make the player like him, and then kill him?

Hmm, I very vividly imagined a bot menu item "Give name" :D Should be pretty cheap to implement? 8-]

Another idea, to form even stronger connection with the player through greed: what about upgrading your bots with modpacks, and maybe even utility devices? Might have its use, especially in case you have spare ones.
In case there are/will be nano-packs in the game, the bot could last very long. Can we take them down in elevators, BTW?

Bots now can follow you and fight for you, and that's awesome.

It would be more awesomeness if you could directly control them.

I imagine the mechanic to work this way:
* only done from a terminal. You need to come to a terminal and already have a bot hacked.
* Bump into a terminal and have extra menu items: "Remote control bot c3p0", "Remote control bot r2d2", etc.
* It costs 3-10 sec to start the direct control session, and 1-3 sec to stop it.
* You leave the JHGuy body at the terminal and start controlling the bot's body. JHGuy is too busy (maybe is wearing a VR headset?..) to sense anything around, so the body is completely vulnerable.
* You get back to JHGuy body by pressing Esc, or if the bot is destroyed, or when JHGuy's body is attacked. Maybe the smarter enemies can even track the terminal that's used to control a bot, or maybe Fiends are enough to make it a risky game.
* This feature could also be balanced by reduced bot's speed or field of vision (the controls are clunky).
* This can probably be done with turrets too. I have not idea why, but why not.

Bug Reports / Keypad Enter doesn't work on Mac

I have an external keyboard, so keypad enter still makes sense.

Reloading with Reload Dance should still produce a reload sound. It didn't for me.
