    when I first tried to play this game I really liked it only problem was for some reason it made my computer fan spin so hard and fast my laptop lifted off the table like a UFO and then after a moment of destabilized flight flipped on to the floor and landed right in the dogs water bowl and I just got a new computer yesterday....has this issue been solved? TIA

    Yup. We fixed that issue. Had to do with some integrated video cards.

    why not try the sane option first and ask the devs for images?

    Whew! That was a god damn long journey since the first time I appeared on the Codex. And now this baby is finally done! Seriously, thanks guys, the codex really helped us out. I'll be making a Trudograd post when we have a demo. And of course I'll be continuing to chat in this thread whenever I can!

    Thanks, man!!!

    I agree with anyone capable of doing it - doing it! I doubt my guys even have a portrait folder that's not encoded in game resources. But if they do have it, I'll post a zip when the dust of the final update settles!

    Atomboy I wanted to say thank you for making this great game. I finished my first playthrough exactly 5 minutes ago and as soon as I closed the game steam started downloading the patch, perfect timing for a second playthrough. Getting lost in this game for 65 hours is a steal for the price you are asking. I imagine this is what Van Buren should have been.

    Thank you! It's been tiring, but the result healed my stress!

    Thank you, really hope you'll enjoy the metro and all the weird stuff.
    Yup!
    Thanks! I will be sharing new stuff as it's made. We're not really gonna take a vacation from work, Trudograd starts as soon as we patch all the new issues if there's gonna be any. Depending on when you played Atom last, the game might just be around 2 times larger than when you left it! :D Try it out!

    I think this year, but we'll take our sweet time with it. Since the city is a layered tower ziggurat type thing it will have a lot of verticality and that's asking for a lot of work.
    For some reason I can't see the original post with the question you're quoting but I'll reply to it still!
    I dunno what a midgame expansion means, Trudograd will most probably be like... another game that's installed on your computer like a game, but you can feed your Atom RPG save to it and it will change stuff in itself according to your choices or just start a new game. Baldur's Gate 2 comes to mind a lot. Including the part where you started on LVL 7 or 8 not LVL 1
    Yeah it's big! Check it out! The Dead City is now all proper.

    Well it's gonna be stand alone. Like a new game. But it will take Atom RPG save files.


    ============================

    ALSO
    A huge thank you to Infinitron or another mod who's doing all this. Thank you for making my post look normal instead of how it looked at first and for changing the thread name. I'm really bad at this forum stuff and I can't make it so pictures look good and have proper size so kudos to you my man!

    Atomboy I killed all three leaders of the Death gang but I don't get the option to tell the old dude who gave me the quest to kill them. When I talk to him I can only ask him about information about the three leaders.

    There are always issues, no game is bug-free, at least until our AI overlords awaken. Just spent some time in the tutorial grinding craft junk for early xp and it seems that crafting is bugged. The second item in the slot is not consumed.

    Damn, this gives a really good first impression. Got a few super minor complaints regarding interface stuff (When I tried transferring ammo to my buddy in the tutorial for example it appeared I had to individually click up/down for each bullet, no holding the button to scroll and (I think I tried it at least) no entering a number via keyboard. Plus clicking on your weapon to force attack something, you can't right-click to cancel it, have to click on the weapon again) but other than that, really impressed. Done jack-shit so far other than shanking some damn dirty rats and finding DA NUT but feeling really promising. Thinking this'll be much more my cup of tea than Underrail was/is. I played that during my absence from the Codex but I wasn't particularly fond of it due to the heavy focus on crafting (Thus far it seems reasonable to ignore it in Atom, while in Underrail you could technically ignore it but it was heavily, heavily encouraged) and the combat didn't feel as nice to me, and the lack of dialog was a shame. The exploration in Underrail is fantastic, but I dunno. I got significantly further into Underrail than I have in Atom thus far so maybe the bloom will come off the rose a bit, but glad I picked this up. Kind of a shame I waited as long as I did but I did want to finish some of my in-progress shit like Bard's Tale 4.

    Oh yeah, I did have one other minor complaint. Didn't realize ranged weapons were so heavily tied to strength until after I'd made my character and got into the tutorial and saw the assault rifle and sniper rifle. Built my character for gun use but he's got a weakling 4 strength so I'll have to see what happens. General idea is to play my bog-standard Fallout character of small guns, lockpick, speech. Took sex appeal even though it'll probably work against me as a dude, but to hell with it. With low strength I may try specializing in pistols if I can get away with it, no idea if that's a legitimate plan in this yet but I guess I'll see what happens! Still need to get my hands on a gun anyway, only crafted a shiv.
