  7. a few years back I was playing multiplayer Project Zomboid with some buddies of mine, my friend found a modded weapon that was supposed to be a silent nerf gun or something, thing is that in this game zombies can hear gunshots and if you fire off a shot in a crowded neighborhood you will be surrounded, my friend thought that the distance zombies could hear sounds was based on the volume of the sound effect itself, but me being a funny little computer man thought "hey, that sounds very hard to implement, so it's probably just a hardcoded value for distance, and the modder for this weapon probably didn't change it from the stock one since it's a low-effort mod, so this is probably not a good idea to fire" and I shouted "NATE WAIT DON'T FIRE THAT THE ZOMBIES WILL HEAR IT" Nate of course, not believing me, fired it, a minute or so later every zombie in the neighborhood was pounding on all the windows and doors, we were then swarmed by about a hundred or so zombies and eaten, I have a screenshot of it somewhere lol edit: found the screenshot, you can tell it's old because it's back when the game still used pre-rendered sprites for the zombies and I was still running Windows

    Game that looks like Doom to me

    I'm tired of this pseudo 3D thing, the game logic is 3D, entities have X Y *and* Z coordinates, width,height *and* depth just because it doesn't use your fancy-shmancy "polygon" doohickeys doesn't mean it's "pseudo 3D"

    Steam stops supporting Windows 7 and Windows 8

    god yes, I had to build Xash3D on an old Lubuntu version due to 32-bit being dropped a while back, and ended up needing to compile like 10 or so massive libraries because one of the main dependencies was like version 0.13.7 and apt only let me download 0.13.6 or something, and then that repeated for all the dependencies of that dependency. I don't have a lot of complaints about Linux, but distro maintainers sticking to old package versions or not updating their 32-bit packages(especially Lubuntu, considering their main thing is that they run on old machines) is probably #1 on that list

    yup, most of the software I was using on Windows still works fine or has a drop-in replacement

    Steam stops supporting Windows 7 and Windows 8

    if you're looking to hop in I'd recommend something beginner friendly like LMDE running in a VM just to learn how Linux filesystems and commands work also if someone recommends you Ubuntu, don't lmao, it's slowly just becoming Windows

    people that don't want to have advertisements in their start menu but also don't want to make the switch to Linux yet
  14. Project Zomboid, hands down one of the best video games I've ever played, however some skills are downright useless in most playthroughs past a few levels(you only really need electrical 1), other than that it's a great game
