You worry that we'll need to start a new game with the next patch? I hope not

Maybe.... If the spawns need to be changed to fix the duty / sin guys, that means editing the all.spawn file which means new game required.

Totally agree with that. Just let him stay in his own little world

---END QUOTATION---



This IS my world and had been for more than five years before you showed up, rookie. And it isn't 'little'.

You are agreeing with, and applauding, a poster who had no further point to offer and so descended into personal digs and what he believed was insult.

Congratulations. You've been here all of five minutes and you've managed to drop yourself to his level.

I spend most of my time here answering questions from new Stalker players, helping to cure problems they meet in-game and generally trying to be pleasant, as I do outside of the net. I do the same thing on the Steam Stalker forum.

I hope, when you meet a problem, that I'm not the only one with the answer. If that happens you're not likely to get the assistance you need from this direction with the attitude you've shown with that post.

Not sure it's worth the time to explain to some of the newcomers
things like respect, deference and consideration. When dealing with
the younger generations, you will experience their disdain for anything
that does not serve their instant gratification and self-obsessed importance.

@steelyglint:
It doesn't makes any sense to debate further with you about that. Even about that stuff about criminals you keep complaining and writing your ethics and morality speech. Just get a STALKER book and read it - you will find out how the zone works and that they are at least all criminals -no matter how friendly they are after, for example someone robbed another. We're are speaking of a GAME and you call people murder or accuse them for homicidal tendencies if they behave in a way which you don't like. This is totally awesome and very respectful from a guy who is really that long here and so adult. Again a GAME.

Nothing to say about this rookie nonsense...what did you call it? Childish?

I am out.

Of course you are a 'rookie' here. Unless you consider a three-day old membership of the forum to be worthy of 'Senior Resident' status. Had you held such status you might well have paused for thought and decided not to post what you did. So yes, I suppose a lack of experience on the forum could easily be likened to 'childishness'.

Stalker books do not need the kind of thought that is required when making decisions in the game as the only decision to make about a book is whether to read it or not. When a character in a book makes a decision it is impossible for the reader to change that decision. Such impossibility does not exist in the game.

I never directly called anyone 'criminal'. 'murderer', 'psychopath' or any of the other things such accusations have referred to, and that you perpetuated in your post. I stated that there is no requirement in the game to act in the fashion of such, and that doing so is, in effect, attempting to force the character 'Strelok' into a personality he simply is incapable of assuming. Therefore it is hardly surprising that doing so tends to spoil the game for those who do this. It has nothing to do with what 'I like' or otherwise.

The fact that every person in the game is inside the 'Exclusion Zone' and is, because of that fact, to some extent acting outside the law, is a point I made myself in a previous post. Seems at least something I said actually got through. Well done.

Yes, it is a game, only a game. But unless you act in certain ways, it breaks or makes continued play much more difficult. Those 'certain ways' are all about the decisions you make as you move through the storyline, and any decision involves ethics and morality - that's a fact of life, whether it be corporeal or cyber life, and especially important in the Stalker games. Every decision you make in the game informs the entire rest of the game, so at least some thought has to be applied.

Damn. I wanted to use a quote, but I can't recall what it is from, nor the character who said it.

Something like... 'I taught it to him once. He has forgotten. So I will teach it to him again.'

Thanks for the support, though. Not much of that going around at the moment.

I try to avoid being a peacock - 'pride always comes before a fall' and such - but I am quite proud of the fact that, during all of the recent bile that has been aimed at me, I managed to never once descend into personal attack, abuse, insult or obscenity. Pity the same cannot be claimed by those serving up that bile.

I'm pretty sure the 'old hands' core of membership will out-survive it all, though. We won't even need armor in the game soon, as we have all acquired a bulletproof skin.

.

EDIT: I believe I just remembered where that quote is from. Stargate SG1.

I'm pretty sure it was Bra'tac talking about Teal'c after he'd been brainwashed by Apophis to believe he was still his 'First Prime'. Season 5, episodes 1 and 2.

Forum membership - which you have held longer than either me or TS. But I think one's post-count holds more importance.
