How good is Photon networking in your opinion? is it alright to use for a "survival" type game?
What do you think about conan exiles? it will kill ark or rust? Were you also planing to add npc slaves?
Yeah it will kill rust unless we copy all of its mechanics, so we plan to steal everything they do.
What do you think about UNET? Is it decent if you plan on making your first multiplayer game or other networking solutions are better? (i.e. Photon, legacy networking)
Yeah it seems pretty okay to me.
Thoughts on BP system winning in every reddit poll?
Blueprints don't work. They make the game finite. Once you get all the blueprints it's the component system.
If you had been rejected literally THOUSANDS of times on dating sites are you saying you wouldn't be tempted to start trolling them??? Guess I'm the real problem here, all that's needed to get a GF these days is becoming a multi-millionaire, easy, right?
Is your point that you think women reject everyone that is not a millionaire, or that being a millionaire is the only thing that would offset your body, face, voice, intelligence, personality, and history of violent threats/language towards women?
Do you plan on adding space travel to Rust? (If unity has some super update)
If by space travel you mean leaving your island, flying through space, landing on other planets full of procedurally generated intelligent life, setting up new space bases there and invading other planets. Then yes. This is all in our plans for rust.
If both your parents were foreign and you felt under seige 24/7 from the locals, would YOU consider yourself "british"?
No, I'd probably just become an obsessive stalker on the internet, troll dating sites and get arrested multiple times without ever learning anything from my previous experiences. I'd probably have a big blow up just before Christmas every year because of how desperately lonely my actions have caused me to be.
I noticed in one of your old road maps you had skill trees in it, do you still plan to add those?
I think Facepunch should do an indepth blog about what happened to a lot of the concept content. I know for a fact the community would love to know a bit of what's going on. [Capturing players, Caretakers, Box/Heavy armor and all that]
Concept art is concept art
Do you ever plan on adding the ability to create custom rust maps? Allowing admins to place monuments, caves, and terraform the land to their liking?
It's a part of our long term plans, yeah
Will you be putting out a new roadmap for Rust or post a forward looking plan for 2017, I would really like to know what you have in store for Rust since the component system is implemented.
This is helk's department
There are plans to implement the FP steamworks wrapper in the prototypes? (Bill game,Beep,Absorb)
That's up to them
What is your thoughts about Hello Games and No Mans Sky?
Felt inevitable. As a game developer getting both money and respect is hard. By hyping they got the money, but lost the respect by overhyping, not communicating, bending the truth.
Are you comfortable with the current construction system in rust?
There's stuff we want to change. I.e. Having to actually build instead of just placing.
Since the component system is in and nobody is bitching too much about the system, can we have wipe every month instead of two weeks? ( and still doing contend/fixes every week)
We wipe every month anyway, not every 2 weeks
Do you think it's reasonable that rich people are above the law?
Yeah that seems like a pretty good system
Is there any way to change your mind about updating Rusty Legacy again? If you're open for suggestions, I might have some.
I am thinking about getting into computer programming for games what programming language should i learn? Thanks
What do you think makes your company special amongst other game development teams?
We're a bit more of a communist organisation. Everyone chooses what they work on and get a share of any income they generate. We buy everyone's dinner at the office. People can come in or work from home, work as little or as much as they feel they need to.
