The Scoop #14 - DLC & VR Info!



Welcome to The Scoop, our regular community update for Tabletop Simulator and Berserk Games!

Dev Chat

It's been awhile since our last issue of The Scoop and that's because we've been putting out patches nearly every week! So there wasn't really a need for The Scoop when we also have our Monthly Newsletter. But here we are again!

It's been a crazy month with lots of patches and lots of nifty new features. Hope you've liked it all! Upgrading to Unity 5 was a smooth transition with hardly any issues, we've added more DLCs, and scripting has been an awesome addition with you guys really making the most of it and creating some really cool things! I can't wait to see what else you guys come up with.

The new file browser is amazing and I'm so glad that we added that, giving you more options to choose from. So you can still upload your files to your favorite sites or you can use the file browser to upload it to your Steam Cloud or privately test by using the Local option. Definitely makes testing and checking things much faster and easier all around.

What do you think of the new Locked physics mode? Have you tried it yet? In case you didn't read the patch notes, go into your Host → Options menu and in the General tab, you can choose between Full (normal physics), Semi-Lock (reduced physics), and Locked (minimal physics). With the new Locked physics, there is no throwing, clumping, lowering, or pushing and objects will always auto raise. So if you've been wanting to experience Tabletop Simulator without all the physics, then this mode is for you!

The following is a gif that demonstrates locked physics mode.



And as promised in the last issue, the last video in our Tutorial Series is now up! This video covers the Steam Workshop - how to use it and how to upload your mods to it. While this is the final episode in this series, there will be other videos that will cover all the new features and other things we may have missed. Enjoy!

Also, don't forget to check out our Knowledge Base. There is a lot of helpful information that you may not have known existed, so be sure to read through it! We're adding things to it all the time, so keep checking back!

DLC News

Next on the horizon, we're happy to announce our partnership with Far Off Games to bring their awesome game Xia: Legends of a Drift System to Tabletop Simulator!

Xia is a 3-5 player, sandbox-style, competitive space adventure. Each player starts as a lowly (but hopeful!) captain of a small starship. Players fly their ships about the system completing a variety of Missions, exploring new Sectors, and battling other ships. Captains vie with each other for Titles, riches, and, most importantly, Fame. The most adaptive, risk-taking, and creative players will excel. One captain will rise above the others, surpassing mortality by becoming Legend!



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And if you missed our last announcement, we're also working with Atlas Games and will be bringing Three Cheers For Master to Tabletop Simulator! We're super excited to be working with them!

In Three Cheers For Master you’re the minion of an evil overlord. When Master's blue, it's the minions who suffer. As a lieutenant in Master's army — a foreminion — it falls to you to cheer him up. Not the easiest task, even in the best of times.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Future Updates

We value our community's feedback and over this past year we have implemented a lot of features and suggestions that you guys have given us. And we're still listening! Please continue to post your suggestions on our official forums.

"VR????!?!??! When will Tabletop Simulator get VR? TTS NEEDS VR! Give us VR!"

This has been brought up a LOT recently, especially with the release of the Vive. When will we get VR for Tabletop Simulator? VR has been thought about since our Kickstarter 2 years ago. It was one of our stretch goals and just like you, we'd love for it to happen! That being said, we can't give you a date of when it will be done, because we just don't know!

However, we ARE working on it! And so far progress is looking good! We are currently working with the Vive, so that will be our focus right now (Sorry Oculus users!). There's still a lot to do, but it really will be a pretty cool experience all around to get VR into Tabletop Simulator! Since VR is our focus, updates will be slowing down, so don't expect to see any patches in the next few weeks.

Stay tuned for more information in the future!

9/10. Buy it if board/card games interest you.

It's almost hard to believe that this game is legal, what with the fact that you can get almost any board/card game you can imagine for free on the Steam Workshop. I live in Korea and my family is in the United States. Playing board games with my mom just like when I was back home adds a sense of togetherness that we normally can't have. Sometimes I miss my home, but this game helps me cope with it.
Why not 10/10? It lacks a bit of polish and is probably not quite as optimized as it could be. Still, great game. Pick it up.

This game is a blast. Anything you can do with any board or card game, you can do in this. This includes Role playing games such as D&D. If you're looking for hours of fun playing literally anything, this is the game for you. If you can't see a good game to play in the list, go into the workshop. I can almost garuntee what you want is there somewhere. My favorate part of this game is that you can load a mod into your friend's game without them needing the mod. I recommend this game greatly

What is your favorite boardgame
from your childhood? Chances are that it is on the mod workshop for this game.
if it has not been made into a mod then you can scan and make it yourself or see if someone would make it for you.
Tabletop simulator 10/10
    tips
  • turn off the global chat because it is cancer. They have added effective moderators to the chat.
  • join a steam group for tts esp if you there might be one specifically for players in your area of the world.
  • check the overlay add friends or find people that you have enjoyed playing with and befriend them.
  • Contribute to the community by improving mods and being courtious\polite when possible.

If you like tabletop games then you HAVE to like this game. It simulates a tabletop and you have to follow the rules for the game, so house rules are accepted here. Also it's an easy way to get together with friends for a few games when you can't schedule a game night. They keep adding in features to make sure the game matches up with what you need to play diffent games, like blindfolding, teams, and even scripting so someone else can make things easier for you by writing that script. Hosting a server is built in, there is kick and ban options, the only thing this game is missing is an FOV slider, but you don't need one. the FOV is fine. I have nothing bad to say about this game.

Pros: everything

Cons: none

The physics of this engine along with your ability to create almost any board game makes this an amazing investment. Just remember you may want to get your friends into this too, otherwise all you have a new way to play solitaire.

Being the only child at home since I was 4, I had a hard time trying to find someone to play with me on my board games. THis video game has changed everythig I know about playing board games, and allows me to play old and new games with people wanting to have a good time. Pick up a copy today, it could come in handy some day!

Really good game, never gets old because almost any board game you can think of can be played in this game. Amazing value really.

I only half-heartedly bought it when it was in early access, but this game has exceeded all expectations. I thought it would be hard to get people to obey the rules if they're given an open environment, turns out that wasn't a problem at all. Trolls & griefers are rare, and a host can easily ban and fix any damage done in seconds by rewinding time.

After playing over a hundred hours in this game, I think I can finally create a good, unbiased opinion on this game.

As a disclaimer, I originally bought this game back in early 2015, a few months before it left Early Access. Throughout this time, I have seen many changes to the game. Both good and bad.

The Bad

I'll be starting off with the bad stuff. The biggest complaint I have against the game, is the lack of variety. This has been a thing ever since I bought it, but it has become more obvious as time goes on. Most of the games currently are Blackjack or Poker, Secret Hitler, and MTG. While these games aren't bad, and it is certainly easy to startup your own game, it's also a bit depressing to see these games as the only ones that are commonly open, with the more rare games quickly getting filled up. That said, you do have some other games such as Codenames or X-Wings, that are more rare, but luckily pop up a lot.

Another issue I have with the game, is the weird loading bugs that still occur today. These bugs may range from anything to your game refusing to load certain files and forcing the loading symbol to stay on your screen, to the voice chat looping over and over, as the game loads in. While these aren't game breaking, they certainly are annoying.

The Good

The game has an amazingly large selection of games to play, and more than likely you'll learn about new games that you never heard of, or knew how to play. For example, I never knew what Betrayal at the House on the Hill was, but after playing TTS, it has become one of my favorite board games.

Also, the community is generally laid back and friendly, meaning that you can easily get into a game and learn it without being mocked or belittled. Overall, the atmosphere of the game is very cozy, and you don't really feel unwelcome.

The Verdict

If you like board games in the least, Tabletop Sim is probably one of the best games out there for that. Even though the game originally showed off the 'chaos' element to it, the game itself is much more than just that.

I was able to play Eels and Escalators. 100/10, would play Eels and Escalators again!

In all seriousness, this game is great for people who don’t have any friends in real life. Even if you do have friends, the game is still pretty great!! Anyway, I went into this game expecting it to be pretty bad. Well, not really “bad”, more like stupid. I expected it to be pretty stupid. However, after some “experimentation” – we’ll say “experimentation”, but you can call it whatever you’d like – I’ve been having a lot of fun with it. I love board games, you see… Yeah, I know; who doesn’t love board games, right? Anyway, I like board games a lot and I like playing board games. My problem is, the group I usually play with doesn’t like the “complexity” of the games I usually tend to like playing. I use the term “complexity” loosely because my games aren’t very “complex”, but they are more complex than say something like Uno, Monopoly, or Skip-Bo. Anyway, I’m starting to digress. Point being, the game is great and you should play it if you’re either:
A. Into board games
B. Into board games and don’t have anybody to play with
C. Into board games and have anybody/somebody to play with
D. Into board games (again)… This game is just great!
E. Or if you just like good games.

Oh, and don’t let the name Tabletop SIMULATOR fool you… This is by far the best SIMULATOR out there, or at least one of the best.

This is a wonderful game that is extremely simple, but at the same time, really fun!! You get to play board games that you might not even have with people online! If your friends can't come over and hang out, you can just get this game and play with your friends. I recommend this game to everyone who likes board games....which is pretty much 1/4 of the world, but there is an awesome option that will hopefully turn that around. If you want to or if you want to get rid of your rage, just click the flip the table button to throw your table into a abyss. Really fun game and love playing with my family and friends.

Coming off the back of a long game of Battlestar Galactica, and trying to mod my own game into the system, if you are into board games or card games you can get some awesome times with this. The tech support from the devs is timely and on point, the game interface works (though because of what it does it is a bit clunky, even with scripting), and the community is generally friendly. Yes, it's mostly secret hitler if you look for games, but there's usually at least something else going, or playing with friends works most of the time (there are a few bugs probably courtesy of the overburdened interface).

Still reecommended, this is the only software on steam I have purchased at full price, and have no regrets about that (though the sales are plentiful, I was just between them when I got it).

The interface is a little intimidating at first, but you soon realize that is has to be, as the fone-tuned control it gives you is necessary to make this a shockingly immersive experience. Honestly I love it to death, and once I got the hang of it I saw the future of virtual gaming possibilities. The only downside I have is finding people I know who are willing to actually breech the learning curve with me :/

Regardless, I would love for this to grow and develop, and see more things like it. Fantastic in theory and execution.
