DEV260515 - Outcome of second meetings

Hi Everyone,

As you may or may not know, we had another meeting with Pavel recently to plan for the next couple of months. This outcome has covered us for the next 2 months and here is the itemized list, less release dates.

The reason for no release dates being set is due to us still awaiting the completion of the Mod support. From what I have been informed it is close to release - but the creases are being ironed out before it is made public. There would be nothing worse than to release a buggy mod support, so we are making sure it is finalized before release.

Mod support will be released before work on updates listed below are initiated.

First Update (Estimated development time: 7 days) - Release date: To be set/confirmed
- Mud physics and too much in places, Inconsistent and too deep in places
- Xbox customize controls
- Default camera will be mirrored for equal viewing around vehicle
- Map cloaking off for easy mode as an option

Second Update (Estimated development time: 17 days) - Release date: To be set/confirmed
- SP saves fixed from loses upon updates.
- MP saves

Free DLC (Estimated Development time: 29 days) - Release date: To be set/confirmed
- 1 - 2 new game modes
- 1 - 2 trucks
- 1 map

Any further information will be posted in due course, but this was the outcome of our meeting to ensure a basic schedule for the following months.

Spintires is an offroad driving game where you get behind the wheel of a number of Russian vehicles and drive them through all the mud you could possibly hope for. Using only your map and compass you have to navigate the rugged terrain in order to complete objectives such as collecting and delivering lumber.

+Great graphics
+Quite a few different trucks, each with customisation options and they are all quite different to each other, in appearance and performance
+Amazing mud physics, the deformation caused by driving through mud looks realistic and is excellent
+Several maps, all of them are quite different to each other and the vehicles available vary between each one
+The winch system is great and the power of it feels quite realistic
+Multiplayer, particularly with friends, is a lot of fun
+Driving controls are good, as are the crane controls (used for putting lumber in your trailer)
+You have to discover the different parts of the map so even if you don't want to do the main objective there is a lot to do on each map
+They did a very good job in making it difficult to judge water depth

+/-The majority of the gameplay comes from getting yourself out of the mud, personally I think it's fun but it might put some people off

-The camera controls and the camera itself are awful. The controls are very sensitive, when you zoom out it automatically zooms in making it very hard to see when using big trucks, it has a very strange centre, sometimes it pans by itself, you can only move it on the x-axis, it has awkward angles and it's difficult to get it at the angle you want
-The devs still haven't added a first person camera which was promised very early on after its launch
-The relationship between the dev and the community isn't great (see forums)
-Infrequent updates despite being promised regular large content updates
-For what there is (i.e. the number of maps and trucks) it isn't worth the £19.99 price tag
-There's not much difference between the demo and the full game
-It feels very unfinished

Verdict:
6

It's a fun offroad driving game but it has too many issues for me to recommend it at full price, grab it on sale and play it with friends.

Me: "Are you stuck bro?"
My Friend: "Yea, I'm stuck."
Me: "Hold on I'll try to winch you out."
(hooks winch up)
Me: "Ok, you ready?"
My Friend: Yea, I'm ready."
Me: "Ok lets get you out."
(Turns on winch and accelerates with 4WD and Diff Lock on; Friend has parking brake on... I Instantly sink)
Me: "Sh*t... I think I'm stuck now too..."
My Friend: "What do we do now?"
Me: "Alt F4....."

10/10 would sink again

What you need to know:

Spintires has a tech demo! Try it first at http://www.spintires.com/#!/demo

1 - Some people love the game, others hate it. Try before you buy.

2 - The publisher/developer/customer relationship is quite troubled (read: significant bugs and unexpected changes.)

See - https://steamcommunity.com/app/263280/discussions/0/622954023416537887

Many Spintires players *love* the game and would like to recommend it. However, we cannot yet do so given the current instablity of the game itself.

I really wanted to get into this. I REALLY did. I have a friend who plays it all the time and recommended it to me, so of course I gave into temptation and bought it. Now please, before you downvote this simply because you see I don't recommend it, the least you can do is read my review. This is not just my opinion, but the truth, which I believe people should know about.

Spintires is not a *bad* game, per se, but it has problems, and so do the developers. With every single update comes more bugs and glitches. I've seen it all, from spawning in the ground, to a huge blocky shadow around vehicles, and almost broken multiplayer. The devs also said that fixing bugs now has priority over new features, and while that's good in a way, it also just shows you that something is obviously wrong. A recent update also made every single map break entirely, making these poor modders have to reconfigure their maps just to work again, all because of one update. To add to that, usually with every update comes wiped save files, so you can forget trying to "beat" a map.

Also, a while ago, the developers came out and said that they are pushing official mod support by another month. It has now been longer since I posted this review. They have done this a few times at this point. And modding is what makes this game a lot more enjoyable. But right now, modding is a chore, and in the end when I actually get in game to try mods, the fun just does not last for some reason. Not to mention they are already discussing Spintires 2, the completely unnecessary sequel. Why? Just why? I don't understand why you can't just keep making this game better. I seriously hope this wasn't some sort of cash grab so you can fund your dumb sequel.

I hate to say it, but without mods, this game (in my opinion) is just boring, and slightly frustrating. I do realize that yes, this is basically a logging simulator game, which it is good at. But when you get down to it, it's just a ton of driving through thick mud with super slow trucks, and you can't enjoy it if you don't have patience. Sometimes I'll get so far with a truck, but I end up completely stuck in mud or flip over, and I have to start all over, or bring another truck to it and pull it out. In a nutshell, this entire game seems like a chore. The camera is also very annoying. A lot of people say "you'll get used to it", but if you've ever played a game with a good camera, I don't think you'll find it very pleasant. Go ahead and try the demo to see for yourself. It's almost no different in the current version.

Despite me not enjoying it right now, however, I am certainly rooting for this game. There are some good things about the game, such as the great graphics, physics, terrain deformation, and overall realism. It certainly has potential, but to me, something is wrong with the way it's being updated. The game should have, by no means, been removed from Early Access. So for now, until official mod support is added, and the game becomes a little more stable, I advise you to buy this only if tedious logging sounds like your type of thing.

Spintires - an all-terrain off-road simulator - has great potential and it is always nice to see an indie developer making something different, something exciting. While not many maps and vehicles are available the already existing ones give you enough challenge to spend dozens of hours with the game.

The concept of Spintires is very simple: every map has a location for the lumber you need to deliver elsewhere. This location along with the drop-off point is shown on your map. They are, of course, quite far from each other (usually positioned at opposite ends of the map. The terrain is usually difficult to navigate on so you need to carefully plan where you'd like to go and which vehicle you'd like to take. Additionally, the game does not reveal the map for you - certain "cloaking" areas are placed and in order to get rid of them you need to approach their epicenter.

Navigation requires you to pay attention. Naturally, the best is to play with a friend as in coop mode you can not only deliver more lumber at once but help each other if stuck in the mud. Respawning is possible but only in casual mode: real challenge begins only for hardcore gamers! Near garages certain extensions can be installed - utility assets are available for repair work and you can install a tank for the fuel to have long-lasting petrol available.

I like the complexity of the game and having translations in many languages is always a plus for me. The game looks nice - especially the water and mud effects look great during interactions with your vehicles. The only downside is the missing sound effects for your friend - you simply do not hear the engine of their car but only your own. And you cannot see their tracks in the mud which would be nice if you go on separate ways only to meet up later on because of the objective.

Overall, I am really satisfied with this game. It has potential and while rumor has it the relationship between publisher and developer is not exactly great with regular updates this game can be even greater!

Spintires is a unique game with beautiful graphics. So close to being a good game...

Unfortunately it has a terrible camera design which leads to much frustration. Achievements are hit-or-miss. I know of at least 3 that didn’t unlock when completed. Who knows how many are bugged.

Why do developers keep releasing unfinished and poorly programmed games? Because the consumers keep accepting it.

The rest of the review is still below. Some problems are fixed or being fixed right now. They are fínally getting their s#!t together and starting to make this game better. (On some points...)
However it feels a bit like duct tape fixes to me. It's just an instable game that even on plenty stable systems causes a lot of problems.

Also all development rests on the shoulder of 1 guy who sold the game to OOVEE and is most likely already paid for his work. So there is no incentive for him to work 40hrs/week. And that guy is good at what he does, but he can't make the game stable or make a proper User Interface.
Right now G27's don't work and he's been trying to fix this for 3 weeks now.

It just all comes across as something that 1 Russian guy made in his garage... because it is!
It's got potential, but wait a few months. And I hope OOVEE isn't going to stay cheap enough to let 1 guy do all the work while clearly he isn't cut out to take on all parts of development.

One more thing, they just completely overhauled the physics of the game. Which affects the core gameplay. It's not really fun anymore. This is not the game I bought. It was way too late to change the core of the game. They should have done this months before Early Access stopped. Again very unprofessional.
And they changed a lot more as described below. Some changes are absolutely ridiculous. They have not listened to the consistently negative responses to the changes they make and keep going in the same direction.

I'm seriously starting to wonder if OOVEE is trying to keep the sales down for tax reasons or something. They keep making decisions of which a 5 year old would know they are not wise.
Wether it's ignoring customers for months, not helping 95% of customers that only post on the Steam Forums and them saying 'it's their fault' or hiding while unpaid moderators take all the heat.

Original review:

Typical Early Access game. I know it's just out of Early Access, but if it were up to any respectable company it would just now get into Beta.

Before I tell you what's all wrong with it I'll tell you how (and if) it redeems itself. If you ask me... No, for most people the problems are way to big if it even runs, but as an offroad enthusiast this is the only interesting game out there that doesn't feel like a racing game with 30% less grip. The trucks (well 3 out of 7), suspensions and mud physics are all pretty amazing! You can actually dig yourself in if you give it too much power for instance.

However... These are the problems you'll have to learn to live with if you want this game:
- The camera! It's impossible to get it to go where you want it to go, so exploring the wilderniss or getting out of a dense forest is nearly impossible while with a good camera it would be very easy.
- If you use a gamepad other then a 360 controller you can't use the stickshifter. This was not pointed out before purchase. You also can't adjust the camera properly. It's just as bad as with the mouse but 5 times slower.
- If you use a controller of any kind you still need the keyboard regularly which is awkard. It's understandable that some things need a mouse, but the keys on the keyboard are absolutely unnecessary if they just made the option to bind them as you wish.
- The game was absolutely broken for 80% of customers for over a week, but it works now for 98% of people.
- 98% of people don't register to the OOVEE forums. Those people report massive amounts of bugs which will never be adressed, because 'That's their problem.'
- Lag in online games is usually enormous. But the Client determins how your truck drives, so 90% of the time it's not a huge problem.

- The winch, that you'll need a lot, is super glitchy. It can randomly flip a vehicle that you're towing. Usually works well enough though.*
- The winch cable is super short.
- They just removed some winch points
- No high winch points, so you can't keep it stable on a banked road
- Winch power is sometimes humongous, sometimes you don't even know you're winching
- You can only attach to a max amount of trees. This can mean that the 1 tree you need is unavailable.
In my own experience this max amount randomly varies from 5 to 15.

- The DRM is very agressive and when you lose the connection with the notoriously instable server your game is closed. You will save SP progress but MP progress will be gone. I have not been able to play for longer then 20 minutes and it takes hours to complete a map.**
- You can barely drive over small branches. Yes. You can haul lumber, but some vehicles can't get over branches as they have no friction. Wow.***
- You can't see how to wade through water, because you can't see the bottom. So it's just driving in the river a thousand times and crossing your fingers that you don't need to do 3 hours of progress all over again. It´s realistic, but there should be a way to check like you could in real life with a stick.
- Unrealistic game-balance measures. For instance if you drive in a straight line on a hard road (also happens on soft roads sometimes) you get damage if you leave Diff-lock enabled. And you stall if you don't switch to second gear fast enough while in real life it could drive away in highest gear while carrying a load. I'm afraid they'll add more of these things as the current publishers don't care about realism.

And then there's the Publisher OOVEE. There's a lot of speculation about wether they are respectable or not, all I know for sure is that they don't seem to care about all the aformentioned problems. They only read what's posted on their own forum where maybe 1-2% of customers go and ignore all problems on the Steam forums. They also don't post changelogs there and every update breaks the game for a big portion of the people. They don't tell them how to do a clean install and how to fix the game, so many people just stop playing. This way they choose not to know what problems this game has. Very lazy to say the least. I once complained about the camera control with the gamepad and they sent me a tutorial on how to fix it myself in by programming in Python. They sell a game that's nearly broken and they send us duct tape.

There's a chance that they'll (I mean their single Russian developer) fix some problems soon, but since they don't know about many problems, I don't expect most problems to ever be fixed. They did say that they were looking into the problem with the branches.

Publishers just told me days ago that they think the game is done. ish. But it will get some minor improvements and tweaks.

* This has now been fixed. Pretty much.

** DRM isn't causing problems for me anymore, but there are some players who still can't play online.

*** This has gotten worse as they completely overhauled the physics. Mud is now softer and Branches don't sink in the mud. So you got a branch you absolutely can't pass except by pushing it out the way if the end of the stick doesn't get caught. If it does it's tough luck.

hello, they release this game last year in June , it was a good game with some bug, but after they change the core of the game so the mud was not mud it was more like jello ,they change the menu so it look like a fish bole view very annoying ,, and then cam diff lock damage this is to make the game harder ,again annoying, every time you shift in 1+ it lock the diff auto, so you have to remember to tap diff lock off so you can drive the truck, cause diff lock can't stay on too long just a few sec if not turn off it makes this annoying sound and stops the truck and kill the engine, so now you're stuck, it just so unreal, it to fake,, every update come new bug , the last i played was so bad truck stuck together in MP, then cam the crashes, after flood map this game went down hill , they change all the truck sound so now if you re using analog it sound like crap , they Chang the way different tires react in the mud , before dirt tires was the best , now you cant use them cause you will sing in the mud even if there is no mud, customer bug report system suk, there is no support , i post my bug on forum like they ask, next day my post was delete, , so no don't get this game, cause i know it will not get better , there already working on spintires 2

Thank you for fixing the 2k15 bug and it appears you increased the winch distance! This game is amazing! Bought 2 copies when it was on sale for when i get a second PC my wife wants to play too even! Keep the updates coming and I'm glad they work so hard to keep their unfinished game bug free instead of throwing it all together like others.

Just a side note for others looking to play this with older laptops/PC, My Laptop:

Dell XPS
Intel i5 dual core hyperthreaded 2.67Ghz
4GB ram
Nvidia GT420M
Mircosoft usb wireless xbox controller reciever
usb mouse

Playable at medium settings through an HDMI cable onto a 55" LED TV in 1080i FPS 25-35 while recording with OBS :)

The game has been out almost a year. They've made no significant improvements. Actually the game has regressed. The game lobby now looks like it was made on win 98 with a crt monitor. The multiplayer lobby is a joke and multiplayer is unplayable because of disconnects.

Sorry Oovee but you suck at improving this game. Sell it to someone who cares and can improve it.

Too bad, because it's an off road game that had huge potential and they pisssed it away.

Do i reccomend the game? yes, the game is sweet when it works.

Do i reccomend giving money to the publisher oovee? no!

its up to you, read around in the forums and you find out oovee is made up of amateurs. the game was basically fine at releasy summer 2014(as i bought it), month later, winter 2014 they started changeing stuff. in the last 4 month they broke the game twice so it was unplayable in multiplayer, a crash was guaranteed more or less. that was in december and march.
to push out a "hot" fix takes like 3 to 4 weeks for oovee.

so if you want to give money to them, i am not sure, i already have i cant help it. still i give thumbs up cause i reccomend the game itself. its a nice programm and you can spend quiet some hours with it.

Getting kicked out of multiplayer and ending up at starting point with all progress undone! Almost makes me cry after spending two hours collecting lumber....
The trailers are also sometimes almost impossible to attach "Position your truck properly" keeps reappearing. Really annoying.
And the menues in the garage? Seriously??
As the developers havn't been able to fix these basic game functions I can't recommend this game.

But! It's really nice to drive offroad truck in the middle of nowhere, it's a great idea to start with and somehow it works really well as a social multiplayer game. Talking ♥♥♥♥, drinking beers and driving off road trucks is just awesome.

I like the concept of this game and I used to enjoy playing it.
Oovee keeps on implanting more bugs and glitches with every 'update'
I do not recommend buying this game and wasting your money.
I have played alpha games with less bugs and glitches than this Spintires.
Multiplayer is useless now since there are clipping bugs happening on every level.
If you survive that then the disconnect glitch will hit you or even crash the game.
There is very limited content and they stifle creativity by making user content unavailable.
