Why?! Why?!!! WHYYYYYYYY?!!!!

#3 Re: News » Why Rampant Sales are Bad for Players » 2016-01-24 05:03:00

so what about say a few years down the road to a customer who loves the idea of the game and against opposing reviews decides to purchase the game. but there are so few people around i can only rob 3 millionaires or 3 50$ houses. I get an attempted robbery twice a day by the same person and i catch 3 people a week. i am in love with the mechanics and the way the game plays. but there is no one at this point to enjoy this game with. what do you have to loose. If not, ok. I have read all about this game and you are on record as to never run a sale. And how it is totally open source and all. But could it hurt?

The subject of a sale has been up time and again. Jason is firm in his answer every time. No. No. No.

However... Cullman is creating a new version of the game - a reskin, if you will. It will run on Android and iOS as well as the PC, if I've understood correctly. Cullman is doing this in his spare time, funding it himself and all. As far as I understand, he's currently working towards making it a Steam Greenlight title now. And... I think he will allow sales.

This game was awesome in Q1 of 2014. Not so much since. I mean, of course it continues to be awesome in how it works. The problem, as you so correctly put it yourself, is the attendance. smile

Keep adding to your house, and watch those tapes. As soon as they reveal flaws in your build - fix it. Remember to keep the pile of bait money decently stocked, and well over 2k. You'll see action. smile

Hi Degen. Depending on how intimidating your entrance is, you'll be able to get up to 15-20k before the serious attempts starts.

A classic santa run. Everyone loves a santa. Is your whole neighborhood purple now? smile

Song delayed. I'll try to get it done during the weekend.

#10 Re: Main Forum » Rotary switch traps? » 2014-05-02 01:35:54

Here're two examples. The left one is a simple thing that can be made deadly if you put loose animals into the equation. The right one is a segment from one of my previous houses - it had people scratching their heads about the wiring, and where to direct the power. You can make pretty awesome traps with the rotary. It's my favorite house object, and strangely - I have no rotary in my current house. That has to change. tongue

Epic douchebaggery, right there. And we wonder why new players have a hard time.

Edit: You beat me by answering yourself. tongue

Did you modify it Iceman? If so, can I have a look?

#13 Re: Main Forum » Rankin tries to pet a pitbull » 2014-04-29 13:13:02

Nice video! I like your solution too. And here I was thinking that the house could only be solved my way. I guess you expose some holes in my logic, which is nice. Of course, I know my logic is flawed - hell, I've even come to accept it. tongue

I don't smoke, but I think my houses looks like I do. smile

Draft - with improvements I had planned:

...and solution to the map:


Edit: Forgot a cat in the draft.

#16 Re: Main Forum » Rankin tries to pet a pitbull » 2014-04-29 10:02:32

I'll give you both - just caught up in some rl stuff atm. Gimme a few hours. smile

#17 Re: Main Forum » Rankin tries to pet a pitbull » 2014-04-29 09:42:59

You would also be dead, Iceman. I'll post the solution soon. Two cats has to be at two precise locations when you step on the first powered pit of the top leap of faith. It's all in the prepping.

#18 Re: Main Forum » Rankin tries to pet a pitbull » 2014-04-28 23:04:36

You have it in broad strokes, but would be dead before you reached the vault. What looks like the head of Galactus started as a thought experiment, and ended up as a slightly intricate juggle of pets.

This is what happened - the mutt didn't like it, and earned Mr. Smith a fine 19k bounty:


Funny how a error in judgement (or a brain malfunction) kills you like that. Brainmelt! big_smile

For those who tried - but failed (everyone), here's Rankin's house:


At least I didn't die to a selftest! Quite proud of myself, being out robbin, an' all. Took down houses worth 20k in total the last two days, so that's not half bad - considered who's talking. smile

Ps. The one who figures out the untooled route gets a cookie.

The only one of these to show any creativity was someone I know from here, who came in with a few tools and mapped out the first section of my house before leaving.

What can I say? I love them kitties. Had to see where they went.

I appreciate the efforts of whoever's trying to brute force Lowery's house- the security tapes are quite entertaining!!

Oh, please share those. I'd love to see how people tackle my little hell hole.

#24 Re: Main Forum » I quit as well & 'Multiple Accounts At Their Most Malicious' » 2014-04-27 14:01:53

I used to be veeery sceptical of dual accounts. The bounty fix has changed my mind. Now, I don't care, since you have to work harder to abuse the system. More dual accounts could lend some vitality to the game at this point.

What are the green panic buttons?

Edit: Panic buttons with state on?
