AliensRL / Re: Sentry Turret Issues
« on: September 08, 2012, 09:07 »
I got another issue, a Lua error. A turret was shooting for some time, and then probably ran out of ammo. And I started getting a Lua error, screenshot attached.

152
It started like a dream run, with Beretta on a 4th level. With Gun Kata, I felt all like that Grammaton cleric.

I was using it as a dual gun; was it a good idea, adding 1 extra bullet from a second pistol for +20% shot time? I'm very unsure now.

2 medpacks were not enough - though I know, with Dodgemaster it's doable without a single scratch. On 8% health, I became more attentive, but was caught by a very edge of explosion. Crab.

I still wonder, does "The Cyberdemon reloads his rocket launcher" mean he BEGINS or ENDS reloading?

That is often the case - by that time you have finished your build and are either well stocked, or you are dead.
Maybe that's a balance issue anyway.

Before I quitted savescumming, I played Ao100 once, and on L60 I built a character in Power-modded Gothic Boots (20!!! defense), Lava Armor, and with Laser Burst Cannon.
As bad player as I was, I never died since then.

0.9.9.6 / [H|AoLT|100%|YAFW] First full (and unexpected!) win
« on: August 31, 2012, 03:21 »
Just went in for a quick death, and suddenly found myself winning. In the end, got an invuln globe and had homing phase+nuke rifle at hand.

It's exciting to shoot up all the spiders in Lair because of being faster.

Though having found Sniper Pack, I found Nuke Rifle more useful because of being T-modded - and I never touched my BFG. Maybe I should have carried another medpack instead of 50 cell, but I expected the necessity to shoot BFG.

I must have missed Armory 8(

Things feel significantly easier on levels 7+: I expected to die on Phobos, and Hell was almost a walk in the park.

0.9.9.6 / Re: [M|AoMr|97%|17|YAVP] first win
« on: August 26, 2012, 09:08 »
MBD?  How did that work out for you?  Some folks have said that it was eating a lot of bullets but not doing a whole lot of good.  Can you share more about your experiences with MBD?

I'm not a very thoughtful player, so I just take a maser trait and hoped it will improve the character. It looks to me that majority of master traits are so powerful so it's worth it.

I counted it after you asked, and it looks to me like  it's not that good - 8 bullets in 3 turns, instead of 6. Just +33%, +10 dmg on average. That's not counting reloads, which will probably negate the gain. Not much better than another SoB, +6 dmg on 6 bullets. Maybe good for a nano-modded pistol. Thanks for a hint :D

0.9.9.6 / [M|AoMr|97%|17|YAVP] first win
« on: August 25, 2012, 03:11 »
My first win ever since I stopped savescumming and reset the game. Not counting ITYTD, which I started by accident.

No interesting trophies encountered - I hoped for a better gun.
I just went the marksman build path.

A pity, no invuln globes on the level before Dis - that's what I kept two homing phases and two nukes for.

AliensRL / Ideas: Another types of landscape
« on: July 04, 2011, 05:42 »
To support a ventilation legend, there could be some more types of landscape:
  • maintainance ladders: just a narrow 2-way around a tower.
  • ventilation system: a grid of a tower floor shape. One can go down to the level or up to ventilation in certain places. Though, for better effect this will require field of vision and decreasing player speed.
  • maybe some more tower internals - there must be some infrastructure. That beacon, at the very least.

AliensRL / Re: Request: Confirm Dropping your Weapon
« on: July 04, 2011, 05:22 »
I died once due to hitting "d" instead of "f", and twice was very close.
That feels very roleplaying, as once I panicked, and another time I was too relaxed.
I'm against the confirmation - it adds another tone to a game atmosphere.

« on: July 04, 2011, 04:27 »
That's a really nice win!  So far, I've not had much luck with AliensRL, but now there is a more recent example of a viable strategy that I can try.

We'll see how we can push AliensRL up to the next level, when the dev-team gets to it.  ;-)

Meanwhile, welcome to the forums and hope to see more victories like this.  =D
Thanks! I don't feel I found any new strategy, rather going the easiest way that everybody knows of - Scout-Sidearms-pump up-kill the Q letter.
Before, I played about 30 ten-minute games dying in the beginning all the time, but after reading forums a little - it felt like cheating - I managed to build up. Things really get easier then.

And yes, I'd love to continue, though don't feel that replaying will add much new experience.

Very sorry to see no development in the last year. There are some ideas in this forum that would strengthen game atmosphere greatly - like eggs, broken walls, FoV or panic.

I played Scout (easy difficulty, as far as I know now). Initial hunt for ammo went OK, and I gradually pushed to level 5, with the game becoming easier.
I was pretty scared of uncertainity, looked for RPG some of which that I left on lower levels but was too stubborn to go down, but didn't find one. M56 didn't feel good enough, shooting the same rifle ammo. Well, had to go with it.

First I pumped Sidearms, couple of times switching to .44 Colt, but I was incessantly running out of .44 ammo, even when killing a Warrior with two shots. I ended up going to the top with half-stocked Colt and M41A (I had felt I'd be sorry about incomplete ammo, and I was), and being unsure if M56 Smartgun is enough.
When finding no connection from Medical tower to Main, I discovered that it's probably only so many levels - not 10, 20 or 50 which I expected too. I was suffering a radiation damage (it's now I know what it was) - used about 15 medipacks there to max health back up from 73 to 80+.

On the top, it went no harder then on ordinary elevator to a new floor. Smartgun turned out to be OK and fully stocked, krak and inc grenades worked fine. On a rush down, I had to use M56 as other weapons ran out of ammo. There was one unpleasant moment with 2 praetorians and a, huh, hunter? in a main corridor, but krak grenade helped me out. Kraks are so damn amazing, you can throw them even under your feet, and they will precisely rip only those whom you need to.

Final titles are great :) Hoping for AliensRL 2.

Thanks for an amazing game!
