My new Lets Play has begun! This time with a military recruit!
« on: December 10, 2016, 04:38:31 AM »
Hey everyone! Some of you might know me from my first series I did with Cataclysm 2 years back, most of you probably don't. However, I've started a new series with a military recruit. So far it's been a blast and I'm enjoying a lot of the new features and mods. I've decided to go with a standard playthrough/world for now. Only difference is that I turned down loot spawning. If this playthrough goes well I'd love to start taking suggestions for more difficult starts that I can do for future series. Hope to see you there!

Here is a link to the playlist:  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLgGm2Hh4HVu0NBZuCghLbHFTAzItfgHzK

And also a link to episode 1: https://youtu.be/243P6ueUqj8
I play and commentate games with a heavy emphasis on 4x, Strategy, Tycoon, and Roguelikes.

Thanks! I'm the same way when I watch playthroughs myself. I especially find playthroughs of strategy and roguelike games so interesting because they are always different based on what people enjoy doing!

Also, Here is Episode 2: https://youtu.be/HKeiukG0sUs

Time to really get into exploring and see what's around our spawn area. Hoping to find some good food and water!

I'm interested in watching your gameplays but I can't stand to see the game played with graphical tiles enabled. The sprites are just so, so hideous and painful to look at. Have you ever considered playing with the ASCII graphics?

And then all the people who want to have the Tileset enabled would be complaining because he switched to ascii.

Let's be honest here. From the Player Survey 2016 we know that 975 out of 1157 people play with graphics tilesets. That's nearly 85% ; even if we assume that the survey isn't accurate enough due to the lack of participants, the outcome would still be around 70% or higher.
That said, one can assume that a lot more people would complain if the let's play is in Ascii all of the sudden, which is most likely the bigger risk.

Also, another reason for playing with graphical Tilesets: New people who find his content will have an easier time seeing and understanding his videos and the game in of itself. Most people are simply scared by ascii-graphics, which is understandable. For a newcomer it looks like a keyboard vomitted on your screen. a graphical tileset on the other hand will give them more reason to stay and watch his video, maybe even subscribing to him (which is 'good' for him/his youtube account), and they might even check out the game itself, because they might be interested.

I have considered doing an ASCII gameplay before, however Kadian is correct. Whiles I do enjoy ASCII myself... my audience not so much. A lot of people who watch my Cataclysm DDA videos don't even play the game themselves. They are just really curious about it. Switching to ASCII might chase off a lot of people. But I'm not closed off to doing a series in the future with it.

Thank you! I hope you enjoy it!

You have a very nice voice, Phuket/Sabouts.
“No! I must kill the demons” she shouted
The radio said “No, Rivet. You are the demons”
And then Rivet was a zombie.

One thing that bothers me is that you practice tailoring by trying to repair your army clothing. Wouldn't it make more sense to pick up more common pieces of clothing (like those worn by zombies) and practice tailoring on them instead?

Hey Phuket!
When you reach a million subs, pioneer the genre of Roguelike Youtubing, and launch CDDA into the mainstream spotlight,  remember us! The humble community that has been around since Wales. The down-to-earth, friendly, helpful folks and devs who have kept CDDA alive through all these years. The oasis of non-toxic, salt-free people of this forum, who will inevitably be outnumbered by the countless 13-year-olds who've all canoodled with our mothers that mainstream popularity will bring. Remember us!

-something to put on your social media once you reach 1M subs. Also shameless, instant self-promotion for whatever enterprise I'll pursue with the name of this account, in 10 or so years.
Ironically there are more pimps in garages than wrenches.

Thanks Rivet! I'm glad to see you are still enjoying my videos. I know you liked the first series I did very much! :)

You are 100% correct and I will admit it was pure laziness on my part not to find better things to practice tailoring on!

Oh my! You had me laughing reading this comment! I will not let the Roguelike community down! 1 Million Subscribers here I come!!! You have my word for your shameless plug in future endeavors!

Alright! For this next episode we are going to go have ourselves a peak at this mansion nearby! Enjoy!
