    Here's a thing I've not seemingly seen mentioned... a lot of graphic-changing mods, at least when I was doing it, would use stuff like 3ds max and/or photoshop.

    Normally those'd be pirate copies...

    I think the predecessor did that (VRAM thing) too, no?

    I'd like to know how medium details compares to PS3/4 graphics settings, though. Also worth noting the minimum is apparently for 800x600...

    I honestly don't know if this is a sarcastic comment or not. Wouldn't there be a cost to obtaining an issuable Steam key, as Valve presumably don't want to just become a free distribution/hosting...

    I have to admit a mild curiosity as to a Venn diagram showing the people who a) complained about ED on Steam and b) complained about online requirements.

    From what I recall - and this is from a while ago, so the situation probably has changed a bit - one of the specific drivers for lower pricing is that there are street markets selling pirated copies,...

    For places like Ukraine, Russia, IIRC it's usually a measure to compete against shops/street vendors selling cheap pirated copies. To a degree it means people in higher average wage countries are...

    I want a more arcadey Freespace*, with linear missions and an emphasis on ludicrous firepower/giant explosions. Also with an option for a dynamic campaign alongside a linear story. But no...

    I suspect different model types.

    One thing I'd really like to see, and which I suspect isn't too hard to implement, is to have an option of which bridge design to create (suspension, metal frame,...

    I suspect that a game that allowed a truly accurate model of city development would rapidly cease to become a game per-se; meaningful changes would be driven by external changes, and the players...

    The reason that the Vulture is (argued to be) overpriced is how outlandishly effective it is as a combat ship, though, rather than the difficulty of earning that money. And I think in the latter...

    The Vulture is indeed, ridiculously awesome. With the gimballed pulse lasers it can take down a sidewinder in about 15 seconds flat, and it's even more efficient on big ships. Especially once you...

    40k(!)

    I've seen an Annie for 56k, and both a Python and (IIRC) Dropship for twice that, so I think they didn't just change the base amounts but increase the scaling range.

    There are certainly strong grounds for complaint over the whole dumping of offline SP, but some people react as if it's a grievous crime for which no retribution can ever be sufficiently harsh.

    Tropico 3 is much smaller, though, in terms of the city size and number of things on screen. So it's not quite an apples-to-apples comparison, although I'd agree that CS certainly couldn't be...
