Megaton Rainfall. I thought it was VR-only but it's on Switch as well so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Original post from the Minecraft thread:
Anyone know of some kind of build - RP mixed servers???

I like building and I don't mind RP, especially when its really good world building, but more often than not I find the RP dull and the building rather limited. Or rather, I find RP servers where you don't build much, and building servers where you just build--and while that's fun, ultimately I'd like to see the world come a live a bit--or at least be able to make things people will use in their RP.

I looked at Lord of the Craft, but honestly while the RP is pretty cool--more history-y than your standard high medieval RP--I can't say I'm convinced theres too much building going on (other than building and rebuilding the continuing cycle of growing, conquering, and fracturing nations' towns).

I used to build for Westeroscraft for a bit, but same thing, its just building and then RPing later in a built world.

IDK, maybe I want a balance that can't be struck, but if anyone has any ideas I'd be super grateful!

Anyone know of any games that combine intense building with a possibility of RP? I love building stuff, customizing, etc.--but it always turns me off when its all eventually for nought. Outside of the meter by meter building of Minecraft, I thought Land of Lords and Ymir got close to what I'm looking for, but both fell short via lack of lots of important features and/or creator mismanagement.

Considered Voxel Turf at all? It's a MineClone, but with AI gang wars, property ownership and development, and guns.

It's not *particularly* set up for RP, but it's got multiplayer capability and people are basically playing as independent entrepreneurs anyways.

A cathartic game where you get to destroy a fully destructable city with nothing able to stop you.

Blast Corps is right up this alley. Well, almost. You're destroying the city because you're "escorting" a truck carrying a missile with a nuclear warhead that will detonate if it hits the slightest obstacle. So in that sense, you kind of have something to stop you: clearing the path and getting the truck to the target somewhat requires that you focus your destruction in particular areas. There are a couple secondary areas without the truck for a main goal (races or time trials: destroy all buildings in a limit), but I forget if there are any sandbox areas where you can just play around.

Unfortunately, it is many years old and for the N64.
Duuuuude, that's a blast (pun not intended) from the past. I had that game as a kid!
Can't remember much about it 'cause I was real little, but it was pretty dang cool. Wonder where my copy got to, probably in storage with family somewhere.

So recently picked up A Legionary's Life.
(found here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1058430/A_Legionarys_Life/)
First of all I was absoutely enthraleld by it, but secondly it has left me with a desire to play other games where you can play as an average soldier in the Roman Legion and also more games of similar genre (its a bit like King of Dragon Pass).

Can anything think of similar games?

If you don't mind very basic 3D graphics (circa 1990s level), one of the most detailed and challenging survival-crafting-farming simulation games I've played is a mod of an indie game.

I really just came here to rescue this gem and to mention that they are making Stranded 3.
I have no idea how young I was when I played the 2 first ones, but it taught me two things: German people like sandbox / simulations and I will always keep an eye on their games, and that Minecraft would be successful.

It honestly feels like a lot of their problems came from the fact that their entire team was composed of cats, and the people who were supposed to be herding them were also cats.

There is one better, but 2D: UnReal World.

SO, I have a crippled chromebook with a 2ghz braswell processor and 2gb of RAM.

It is running Ubuntu Bionic with XFCE4, and WINE. It has a 256gb microSD card set up as /home.


Can somebody suggest some good titles?  I have found my copy of Evil Genius runs pretty good, as does Wizardry 8, and Halo PC. 

It acts a fair bit like a computer circa 2005, so retro titles are welcome.

Recommend a game from 2005 or earlier

It's a very broad request so I'm going to blurt out a bunch of PC games I've enjoyed over the years.

Majesty 1
Eradicator
Civ 3 and Civ 3
Shogo
Septerra Core
Forsaken
Icewind Dale
Descent 1 and 2
Ancient Domains of Mystery
NetHack
Simcity 2000, 3000, SimTower
Outpost 2
Red Alert 2
Quake, Malice for Quake
Master of Orion 2


That's a bunch of action games, RPGs and strategy stuff.  If you want to emulate console games I can give a bunch more.

Majesty 1 is indeed pretty fuckin' sick, and it's even on Steam!

Disclaimer: I don't know how well they'll work with your OS but I think they are worth a look.

Commandos 2 (Very well made tactical/squad based strategy)
Gothic 1 + 2 (wonky control scheme but it works well when you get used to it, good rpgs that got a bit overshadowed by morrowind, graphics haven't aged so well)
Lionheart: Legacy of the crusader (great setting, nice story/side quests, first half of the game is very well made but the second half was rushed and it devolves into a mindless hack 'n slash)
Heroes of Might & Magic 3 + 4 (HoMM3 is often considered the peak of the series but HoMM4 is a very good game too. HoMM4's expansions are subpar compared to the base game but are usually cheap enough to worth taking them.)
Battle for Middle Earth 1+2 (decent strategy games if you are into LOTR).
Star Wars Episode 1: Racer (A very decent racing game, it got recently updated for newer OS from GOG)

Sorry for cross-posting, but...

So... are there no real mobile colony sims?! Or am I just using the wrong search words in the Play store? I'd be alright with the most abysmal DF clone, really, just anything in the same genre I can play on my phone.

Seems bizarre that there are no such games available for Android...

I mean, there's dungeon keeper mobile, widely regarded as among shittiest P2W crapstatic extravaganza of shit that EA could have done with the IP, in the manner that only EA can really do. Total Biscuit: This is why we can't have nice things.

I seem to recall there was a Fallout vault-sim at some point, surely it was for mobile.

I'd wager any example would be replete with "you don't have the resources to do that but you can buy 1/x resources for y^100 monies."

If you are referring to Fallout Shelter, yes it is a mobile game.  It's kind of lime SimTower in some respects, but on a smaller scale, and underground of course.
