@mexican_420 said in The biggest disappointment in this game is....:
Not a "wise guy" just educated. Saber didn't create the game, Pavel did. Also it's a "terrain simulator" as much as it's a driving game (logging involves driving, and that's more the focus of the game vs just driving around). Do some research...
I've made maps, and creating an immersive environment even as "small" as 1 sq km is no easy task... This isn't GTA and the dev team is tiny compared to some, so give them some credit for accomplishing what they have, and doing what no other game in recent years has done.
I don't have the time or the patience for any flaming either, and I'm not being a troll. Just tired of the haters bashing things they don't know nearly enough about...
I will concede that you're entitled to an opinion just like everybody else, and I'm by no means trying to play keyboard warrior or armchair developer, just voicing my own opinion.
Mexican+420, I'm not a hater trying to bash the game! I just think the game makers (tiny company or not) are not delivering properly when I compare and read the text on the backside of the game package, I will translate for you the part that's saying open worlds (from Dutch to English);
'Spintires Mudrunner is the ultimate edition of millionseller Spintires. Drive powerful ATV's en drive through enormous open worlds.'
Sorry, that's not exactly what I find back in this game; powerful ATV's yes, but ENORMOUS OPEN WORLDS? Notice the plural in WORLDS? There is not even one enormous open world in this game!
Aside: About you have made maps, that's great!; But I'm a 60 year old, self employed professional graphic designer/illustrator (retired) with 38 years of experience in the field and from these 38 years I spend 22 years working as a 3d modeller/texture and lighting artist, so you could say I know a fair bit of what this kind of work takes, so be carefull who you try to lecture...
But all been said is not the point here; if you promise something (in this case: enormous open worlds), you deliver. Period. You can't use nice marketing words just to make things up to make your product look better; sooner or later customers will react. And unfortunately I'm that kind of customer if you will like it or not.
No hard feelings; enjoy the game!
