    @Bastion you tell us, man. How's it going at Splash Damage? Do you have any gmod maps to show us?

    Ugh, I think the new one is a bit of a step back. The amount of clicks it takes to get to that specific blog post is not good.

    Apparently Anno 1800 will also be removed from Steam and made available exclusively on Epic Store

    I can help you out with the spelling if you do add more documentation. Just let me know on Steam.

    Did they ever remove it? The guy that added it in The Division 2 said the legal guys told him it wasn't enough to just have permission from us, which is completely right (but still).

    I rarely check stuff outside of Steam. The most frequent is humble bundle.

    Epic Games Store

    Steam did need proper competition. I wouldn't mind seeing Valve feel at least a bit pressured to focus on game development as before, but is that really gonna happen? Even if Epic manages to secure these big name titles, there's still a ton of content out there being sold on Steam. And I thought Jim raised some good points about this. At the moment, that's one thing the Epic store has going for it - it's clean and devoid of all the shit that's amassed on Steam over the years. Will that forever be the case? Are they going to do a better job than Valve and properly curate their store? I don't know, but having proper exposure in the store can make a world of difference to indie developers. Another thing that's brought up in the video is how Epic doesn't really want to compete with Steam. If it were a proper competition, you'd have these games available on both stores and the people would determine which is best suitable for them. However, as you asked @[HP] what's the big deal? The big deal is that people are heavily invested in Steam and they don't want to change. At this point there are people who've been on Steam for over 10 years and some have built a significant library of games. Everything has been in one place and it was convenient. Is that stupid, to be invested in one platform to the point where it becomes a monopoly? Maybe, but at the core people don't want to change after they've become comfortable, not without a good reason. And this is something that Epic is aware of. That's why the cut they're taking from sales is so low and that's why they're doing these exclusivity deals. They are essentially making a deal that the developers can't refuse in an attempt to force the people to use their store if they want to play the games and not wait six or twelve months. In a recent article on PC Gamer https://www.pcgamer.com/40-percent-of-epic-games-store-users-say-they-dont-have-steam/ Epic said they now have 85 million users and that 40% of them don't have Steam installed on their systems. How did they find that out? Well, it must have been one hell of a survey. Personally, I don't know what to think of this yet. As I'm getting an instinctively negative reaction when I see these exclusivity deals, I wonder if that's normal on my part. But I have to say these are interesting times.

    Update* Map is available on the Workshop: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1686302847 So I blocked out a wingman map while waiting for feedback on El Guettar. It's set in Southern Spain and is inspired by Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns. Workshop link: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1308751373

    The fact that Valve doesn't even have a workshop category for it, but has one for flying scoutsman, should tell you how much they support it. The map is looking good though. Great job putting it together!

    No idea what you're talking about @blackdog, but the lighting does make a difference. As for the sharpness, I disabled the FXAA and set the MSAA to 4x to give it a crispier look in the screenshots. Btw, if you have suggestions for details on the building and whatnot, feel free to comment. I was talking to Roald the other day and he gave me some good ideas for the coffee shop. I'm still working on this.
