    We were supposed to get a "Moon" server first, but they couldn't even get that up and running. There was a small beta test going on, but it was never continued.

    They still run the adverts every night, though... somebody in marketing is clearly not paying attention.

    Anyone else find that the random events are bugged? I know it's all statistical, but man, I get the flat tire event waaaay too often.

    I heard that there are no random events and everything in this game is scripted.

    Really? Because I've heard that it entirely other way around: everything is completely randomized at the most fundamental level, and what we perceive as "plot" or "advancing" is merely a product of a string of coincidences from a huge random number generator.

    Ive been told, and im not sure about this, but if you play it through Steam, you can log in to an RPS sub-forum and talk about the game.

    Its pretty great.

    You call that a beta? More like a premature alpha, imo.
    The few people who got to play it described it as full of bugs and glitches and basically no content whatsoever. Extremely long loading times, basically just grey hills and some craters, everybody had to wear the same armor... Though the low gravity mod partly made up for that.

    Actually the number generator isn't random. The generator uses everything that's been output so far as a seed for the next generation. There are too many variables for us to follow, but if we could we would be able to predict the next number generated. Not sure how they got the engine started, though.

    you should grind crafting points so you can repair that. Other stat bonuses get canceled when items are in poor condition

    Don't buy this game, there is a bug that corrupts your hard drive if you try to restart.

    Right, so what genre is it after all? An MMORPGFPS with a dating sim minigame? And is it art?

    The open PvP areas really are awful. The GMs actually help certain players permanently kill other players for stupid reasons like what their avatars look like. Luckily I live in a zone where the GMs are slightly more sensible and it is pretty much totally carebear.

    You must be confused, that guide is all about using Medium settings and using middling tactics.

    edit- it's a good strategy guide, though. Concerned with getting the New Game + option. Other guides will show you how to get the special credits that seem to go on forever.
