Well im curious what your working on then, i thougt you just started with modding in SRU.
Space game from BG? I will prolly buy it on sale, play it once, get dissapointed and leave it at that. No offence but only from a major studio with tons of depth i have faith in a strategic space game. SR next gen is next version of SRU, well not certain, it might be modern times focus only. It will be after the space game, but i heard them say they thinking about hiring a new team for SR next gen in june. SR Galactic is the space game.
Dont get me wrong obviously i like the game, but just it could be way better not even by programming just making the right modding descisions, alot of them can be found in SR2020. In my opinion there was too much focus on making units and other things realistic, which then turned out to be making no sence or feel not completed or even biased towards the east. If i started now, i would prolly use alot of text files from SR2020 and update them like techs and unit database.
Well I understood that next gen is a space game with space colonization.. IF I understood it wrong, then I hope I understood it wrong.. because I honestly like earth-games.
And yes, I agree these space games should be done by big studios.. or actually, by no one. I played several in the past. I feel they are all so unrealistic and so much fantasy or wishful thinking.
I'm a mechanical engineer, sorry but what all these games present.. either we're thousands of years away from achieving that level of technology or it's simply BS not funded by any basic law of physics, but yeah, physics change over time.. so who knows.. either way, feels a lot like fantasy games to me this whole space age development.
The best we can hope for the next few hundred years is putting a few colonies in our own solar system.
the biased towards the east you're right, but that's especially in modern times. The reason for that is simple, and yes I lived many years in Russia so I know what I'm going to write here:
BG like all game studios rely on what's written on paper! Well if you believe Putin, the Lada is much better than a mercedes!
Trust me, in winter my neighbors driving LADA don't even try to start their cars while my made in EU car simply starts with the push of a button even at -40 celsius
That's also with their weapons. On paper it all looks amazing, truly marvelous. The S-400 can shoot down a F-35 hundreds of miles away.. wow..
and now reality, they can be glad if a S-400 can actually detect a F-35 at 60miles and plot an interception course at 30miles and actually get that missile close enough overcoming
the EWS of the F-35 to at least 1 out of 10 shots within a 30mile range actually make a hit.
Since that standard S-400 battalion to pull this off cost over 650 Million and a F-35 cost 85 million, the F-35 thus there with 8, for that price, the other 7 still out of range of the S-400 to detect them, the one actually getting close enough to let the S-400 switch on active high band for the trajectory plotting, the moment it does that the other F-35 100% take out the S-400 radar while at the same time informing all forces of NATO the exact location of the S-400 units part of the battalion..
But yeah on paper a S-400 can easily slaughter all of NATO ROFL..
Same with the Armata T-14, of course on paper a few Armata T-14 can easily slaughter the 14.000 MBT of NATO. Sure, a few Armata on paper can easily do that.
And now reality, there are so many flaws with the design still and money for further development stuck anyway.. probably the 100 Russia have won't even be able to combat 20 Challenger II.
but yeah, on paper everything in Russia is supreme..
And that's not just since the end of the cold war. We know from real tank fights also the Chechnya war and Iraqi war USSR tanks 1980+ vs US tanks 1980+
Sure on paper the Russian tanks would just slaughter all US tanks in a few minutes..
and now reality: the Russian tanks didn't stand a chance
Read the documents how they failed.. I always believe the Dutch NOS news propaganda that Arabs are idiots and that's why they performed so bad but the Russian tanks itself they were just 1000 times better than western tanks.
And then I read the real reports.. how it wasn't that Arabs are idiots, in fact Iraqi forces WELL TRAINED!
But the Russian tanks are so flawed, if they shoot a few rounds in combat training their gun tubes already start to wear out!
Americans can shoot 1000 times and the accuracy is still there..
Russian made tanks, and that's my experience also with LADA, when you buy it in the showroom it's all AMAZING and on paper the LADA is just Gold and the Mercedes is ****!"
but first time I came to Russia I asked my Girlfriend:"Wow, everyone here have a car accident, bad drivers!!!" and she asked me:"Why you think that?"
And I said:"well I know from the ADAC and ANWB that you can recognize accident cars by looking if the doors are still in place, the openings still aligned, etc, these are all so
bend and out of place..thus accident cars" and she then told me:"That's normal with our cars, after a few months already the doors start to wear down"
And then I read this also on reports from the Bundeswehr on Russian tanks they got from the DDR. Claiming:"useless!" After shooting a few training rounds you gotta replace the tube and after 50-100 the whole turret to maintain the accuracy as mentioned on paper.
So the Iraqi shooting and shooting and never hitting US tanks wasn't because they are idiots, as mentioned by NOS in NL, but in fact they just have Russian crap!
But of course, BG has to rely on the technical papers by Russia and they say 1 Russian tank can slaughter a whole US brigade in a few minutes
When it comes to Russia, better to watch real field experiences and forget what's written on paper.
Real field S-300 and S-400 tried very hard to intercept and lock on Israeli and US planes and missiles. 0% success.
