Guys! We need "Favorites" tab here on 80.lv
My motivation wasn't to knock Cem, not as a person nor as a developer. As I said, "this is cool, no doubt about that". I was sharing my personal opinion about the price-point for a material that is so expensive (performance-wise), and pointing out the fact that the same look can be achieved for cheaper (both performance and wallet-wise). I personally find it hard to budget 10s of dollars for a single material, a single effect, etc., but that's me. Other people have money pouring out of their ears and can afford to play like that. The internet is getting less friendly as far as opening dialogues like this. People should be able to have opinions and share them, debate them, without being told to hush up and move along. I hope others buy and use this asset- I'd be curious to see how it stacks up to alternatives out there (again, as I said "I love options"). As far as making my own assets and releasing articles here? It's in the works. And if somebody came along and started a dialogue about issues, opinions they had, or whatever- I would be happy to engage them!
CD Projekt Red reports that a thief has stolen the critical design documents for Cyberpunk 2077 and is asking for ransom.
Something really bad is happening with CD Project Red. Apparently and identified culprits have stolen the early design documents for Cyberpunk 2077. They do not want to release this content yet. Thieves demanded a ransom. Developers are not going to pay. This information is completely official and it was published on the company’s official Twitter.
This might damage the upcoming game to the extreme and potentially harm its launch. We have no idea, how the situation will proceed. The documents they stole were updated, so hopefully they won’t reveal a lot about the upcoming game. Plus, CD Projekt RED is not a new studio, so hopefully they can handle this situation with grace.
