I would like to change the name of this post to what keeps turning me on to playing Boundless.
There are many, many issues that I have seen talked about as I have been browsing posts, I see that there is a common theme: Everyone here is thinking the same thing.
The good news here is that the community has common sense, and are a good bunch of dudes / dudettes. I haven’t seen any truly toxic trolly posts, and if I open that door with this post then I’m glad I found you out now (You know who you are). So, without further ado, and random comments about what is making me fall in love with this game again, let me tell you why I keep coming back even when I’m frustrated as hell.
Repetitive textures are the most annoying thing to me. In voxel based games, I see a lot of the same color. Minecraft taught me that texture blending and approximation was just something that people don’t really want to talk about. But, I do. Here’s the thing, blending is the only real way I can see to make these worlds living, the way I want to see. Let me give you an example.
This is how textures are normally handled.
This is how I propose it to be handled.
Cause, well, I like things to be pretty.
But this, this is honestly the reason why I keep coming back, because I can suggest, propose, and this game has potential. I always think about the problems I’m facing, and every time I read about many others thinking and working to find solutions them. So. This is a labor of love, so to speak.
