FYI, that doesn't include people who are strictly crafters, decorators, role players, event coordinators, etc. So the actual playerbase is higher.

Since a big part of the game was supposed to revolve around housing the difference between the people that can be measured and those that can't might indeed be massive. Or not. Perhaps it's whales keeping it afloat. If it's on it's last legs then they'll be some♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥off whales along with their prince that Trump just met.
Do you have any evidence to back this up?

There's enough wrong with this game that you don't need to make anything up. The creator hasn't ditched it though the state of game might make it look that way. He's very much involved. Involved as a reward if you spend $6,999+ that is. For that you can have dinner with the guy.

Issue #64978. Exception that blocked load in offline has been found and fixed on our internal dev branch. Fix should appear in next patch.

:steamhappy:

Now we just have to hope the patch is released very soon.

In topic Worth it to play single player?
The game feels like a relic but imo the offline singleplayer is worth playing. You can get a row house where you want (it says player-town but it works in normal towns as there aren't player towns in offline mode afaik).

You can edit the save file really easily to increase your gold/crowns and buy the fancy houses (and anything you want from the premium shop) and also put them where you want. Unlike online mode where the NPC towns are saturated and to get a decent house and lot costs a stupid amount of money.

Re: housing. Tldr: expensive.

I thought Elder Scrolls Online houses were expensive but compare what you get there for your money: ESO has a ship complete with a decent size elaborate island (Colossal Aldmeri Grotto) complete with a bunch of shipwreck ships for ~$100 and it's instanced so no struggling to find a location. For this game to own just a ship and a small amount of water (or flat empty land if it's the drydock version) it costs $550/$950 for a drydock/water-based ship in a player-owned town. $750 for a drydock ship in an NPC town (if you can find a space...) with no water-based 1 available unless you'd already bought it.

I backed during the Kickstarter and thought the houses sounded extortionate then. But it's understandable that people bought them so they'd be guaranteed a magnificent location in a thriving game they could get a lot of enjoyment out of. However, the way they're realised in game with so little for the money, it feels beyond extortionate and more like a scam.

It wouldn't cost you anything as a gesture to give buyers a little something extra. It's digital. I don't think anyone would expect a refund or anything. There would be very little loss for you guys and that would be outweighed by the goodwill it generates. This game could use some goodwill.

Well, seeing as I'm still waiting for my founder's physical edition which is delayed because they're waiting for some more maps (or something) to sign, don't expect them to to get off their butts and do something that won't make them money. If you've already paid then you're not a priority it seems.

Sorry, I forgot to include the sarcasm memo.
Ultima 6 on Commodore 64 was riddled with bugs and some design elements that made beating the game without some kind of guidebook impossible. The first edition of one of the Dungeons & Dragons games had an oopsie with the numbers on the disk covers etc. Yeah, not that much fun.

I understood you were being tongue-in-cheek but I couldn't stop the PTSD from manifesting. I spent a lot of time using the C64 and then the Amiga so I've had plenty of failed loading from tape and then Guru Meditation Errors. And you couldn't get a patch or ask online. There were special games but also a whole lot of shovelware. The more things change the more they stay the same. :lunar2019piginablanket:

Nah, didn't happen. Games back then alway worked perfectly without any bugs, didn't you get the nostalgia memo?

Install? Playing Wing Commander on Amiga or Ultima 6 on Commodore 64 without a Harddisk was the real deal! (or really any game on Datasette that used more than one side of the tape.):partytongue:

Splitting hairs. It's only floppy because it's taken out of the container it wasn't designed to be removed from. The 8/5.25 discs were floppy as a complete unit. The complete unit is commonly called a disk like people call Big Ben the tower when it's really the bell.

I dont think people can really wrap their heads around that. 25 minute load times for Asylum :)

Back when floppy disks really were floppy.

cut the price of a dlc in half permanently when it turns 3 years old, include it in the 50% off sales again at 4 years (meaning a quarter of the initial), and make it free at 5 years.
that way everyone that wants the latest stuff still gets it at new prices, but there is no massive price wall in front of people just getting into the game.
Or even add the oldest dlcs in vanilla game as well

Like an MMO where you buy the latest expansion and all previous ones are included in the base game. With an MMO though the past expansion contents might be superceded by the new ones while the DLC here is always relevant.

The DLC could all be moved to be purchasable ingame only but that would have its own problems. I can't think of a solution that would benefit the publishers and the customers.

Steam prevents it because it doesn't flag it as different to what you already bought. Much cheaper than buying it ingame. That's the overall cheapest way, especially if it's on sale.

Or have ESO+ which includes all past expansions and also gives lots of Crowns. To me, it's useful for the crafting bag, which I'd struggle to play without. Just have ESO+ for a few months and you can build up points to buy the Warden class or the expansion when it's on sale during the Morrowind event ingame.


yeah, not playing it outside Steam and having to star a new account from the begginning. They just messed up this really hard.

You don't have to start again. The key is applied to your existing ESO account. Buying it on Steam just lets you download and play it through Steam.

You could wait for the crowns to go on sale (rarely happens), get ESO+ (get access to all DLC + 1500 crowns for each month you pay for), or buy it now :/

Yeah I can't re buy base game, well then i'm not going to buy the expansion, not spending more money when I could get it cheapier, sad.

Yep. Might even get to play today. Maybe...:steamsad:
