    I know, we always used to save blood, but some people don't like blood sausages, so they end up throwing the blood.

    well the witcher perk really worths the ability points invested,one burst and blind death/king rat are dead!same for the spider queen.feels like cheating,humans with weapons though still dominate you.

    That's the next step: For non-muties...take the scoped rifle perk for the 50% crit bonus

    Anyway to the developer. I noticed something odd happening in Krasno, this isn't a bad thing per se - but I was doing my usual shopping in the marketplace and noticed the shopkeepers have VERY deep pockets. I sold all the spare guns, armor to them at very good prices. I've never seen junk dealer carry 2000 rubles in his pocket before but it really happened!

    Thank you, this makes losing Peregon not hurt so much... but I still lost a major amount of exp. Even the postman is no longer there in Krasno!
    So in the end all the rubles were converted to meat and corns for me to eat. That experience must come from somewhere, yes?

    latest patch added more money to merchants,because people were complaining(and still are) about merchant money,guns etc.the initial economy made sense though,but people gonna people.
    really hope they dont push too far and make the starter village merchant carry m-16s etc.

    Oh, just found out, if you're in city, you can bring up your mini map and click anywhere on it for auto-pathfinding. Very useful!
    Just don't do it in dungeons.

    So no party? Really? There was a Lone Wolf perk in character creation though.
    But if that is really the case then that's too bad...

    Ahh, yes... the good old "palos en la rueda" (lit. sticks in the wheel) whenever the government wants to accuse other parties of not cooperating in their destruction of the country.

    "Son enemigos del progreso - villanos y herejes que consideran su deber sagrado poner palos en la rueda siempre que tienen la oportunidad, en todo proyecto, toda iniciativa social."

    Here's a free Spanish translation, that will be 50 cents plus tip.

    You can have a party of companions and you can control them in some ways. You can issue orders like going to a specific spot or shoot a specific enemy or change their stance to be offensive or defensive.

    It's kind of odd at the moment, i swear i tell them to go to a specific spot but sometimes they don't or tell them to shoot a specific enemy but they don't. So yeah, no full control of the companions.

    Whoops. Died in that Mt. Pass bunker.
    Companion aggro 3 of them at once when walking around. Come to think of it, maybe it's best if I take on that place solo next time.
    That was one sad way to go.

    :negative: Next time I'll leave that Mt. Pass bunker last. It's just too annoying to deal with the party movement when outside combat.

    No! Thank YOU for playing! Seriously! On the circus part, I can't see into the English version right now, but the Russian response that I wrote was supposed to have a meaning akin to "I have now learned that you want me to kill everyone in the circus, but I am not telling you whether I will do it, bye now". I really hope that adding an extra line in there is possible, because if it sounds like you promise the guy you'll do it, it really needs another line with a LIE option or smth. We have many quests where you can simply deny the offer and be off, but also quests where the journal line is added anyway, because the NPC doesn't ask you whether you wanna do something for him, he tells you to do it. But you're still free to not do it!

    There is no cap!

    One PC and, depending on your source of information, either a bunch of uncontrollable friend-killing retards, or a helpful gang of loyal companions!
    If it ever comes to this, please only use the legally unambiguous ones! :D
    Noted!

    Fun fact: Buying the scrapyard was a joke I put into the W40K quest, but the guys actually made it possible to do so. I never thought it would be possible for people to even have that kind of money. I don't know the car quest too well since another dude did it, but to my knowledge, you need to purge the mutants and it's like the only way, apart from that joke way you found, but can you actually get that much money in Atom? Weird...

    One time, we asked some fans of the game to translate Otradnoye dialogues into French from my English translation, and I showed it to my mom who is fluent in French, and she said that it was perfectly written. When I asked what the dialogue was about, she said that it was written in a rare mid-xx-century dialect that's basically the French version of Cockney rhyming slang, and it was a guy, who told the protagonist about the souls of wicked children... There is no such character in the original game tho. Broken telephone all the way.

    We're juggling stuff really hard right now. On one hand we have our loyal bro players that were with Atom all this time, so we really wanna make the game just how they want it which is hard yet well balanced. On the other hand we have some casual gamers that came over because the game became popular for some weird reason and they want everything to be easy and they are customers too so I wanna make them happy as well. If the middle ground between those groups will never be found, we'll stick to our guns and work for the old-timey fans, but still we gotta at least try pleasing everyone for a few updates! I really hope that the next update will hit the spot for everybody.

    Like a slider which controls the chance of an NPC having nice goods and paper moneys? That's a pretty good idea, but currently we add these things manually to each NPC. Maybe if one of us writes a formula by which the global economy can be regulated, we'll do just that! Thanks!

    In Poland it goes "to put a stick between the spokes" :P

    Anyways, Atomboy, what was the dev's intended way of getting the code to Bunker 317 safe?

    The 9731
    I asked before, but I'm just curious how it's SUPPOSED to be solved.


    So no Ghenghis Khan (Tadanobu Asano)? A pity.

    Broken telephone or not, but it's pure emergent incline!

    Mr. Atom
    Some stuff to address

    1. Party commands OUTSIDE combat
    There are some situations when I want direct control of certain character but the game wouldn't let me.
    Let me give some examples:
    - I want Hex to start the fight at maximum range with his sniper rifle. This could've been useful in open fights. Especially when the main character is pistol/auto rifle build with shorter range.
    - I gave the slave girl maximum Lockpicking skill but sometimes her pathfinding is odd and I really want her to not alert passing guards if possible.
    - I just want them to stand still at some spot. This is driving me nuts in the Mountain Pass of Woes Bunker. It got me killed when they just open doors and run into mutants on their own. Fidel got disarmed, Hex got knocked down, the slave was dead, I was the last to die.

    Solution: Give us direct control outside combat at least. Meaning I switch to Hex and my character will become the follower. Use Hex to take the opening shot then let me revert to my character in combat.

    2. Party Equipment control
    I just want you to carry that 9.5 kg shield in your pack, not equip it
    Hex, I want you to have a pistol on one hand and a sniper rifle on another.
    Slave, just carry a super stim on every hand be ready to heal people or your bleeding vagina when needed
    Slave, equip the lockpicking kit.

    Just telling you some cool stuff that CAN be done assuming party equipment is allowed.

    3. Items
    I realize Milk & Water bottles are your cheap alternatives to rad/toxin removal, but there's no way a bottle of water weighs 2.1 kgs!
    Toolbox: Only tech? I thought tools would make Tinkering much easier? Maybe a +20 to Tinkering as well?
    Tea & Coffee: 5 minutes of pretending to be a cultured white plantation owner. Even an onion is worth more than tea!
    Water: Why is there only TWO places in the world to refill water canteen?
