With all of the Black Tuesday sales happening after Thanksgiving, I recently splurged a little to purchase myself a few current video games I had been interested in trying out. One of them, a survival-based game set out in space, was made by a developer whose job I entirely enjoyed as well as I was gleeful to try it out. It took me a few afternoons to find the spare time to settle down to play, but once I finally loaded the game I was blown away by just how in-depth the mechanics were! When building your world, you had to take every single small detail into account, most of which people tend to overlook when going about their afternoon in the real world. From the plumbing, to the electrical wiring, to the heating as well as a/c ducts, everything is important. Certain works require that they be completed in rooms with the proper temperature control, as a lack of cooling, or not enough heating, leads to unideal conditions where it isn’t possible. And, in order to keep things as well as efficient as well as avoid any heat transference between rooms, so you aren’t wasting extra energy on heating or accidentally letting heat out into a room that requires cooling, you may require special insulated blocks for your ceiling, walls, as well as floors. I had a lot fun truly working things out with trial-and-error as well as reading how to best utilize all of the complex systems the game had to offer. I made a lot of mistakes, as well as it was a little frustrating at times to wrap my head around all of the numerous machinery involved in setting up a functioning system, but the complexity of it all ensures I’ll be able to keep playing as well as reading as well as having fun for a long time to come.
