    The problem is, that the virus does irreparable damage to your body even if symptoms are mild. In general every disease does damage to your body. Even if it's just a cold or the flu or whatever. Sometimes the damage can mostly be regenerated, but often by scar tissue. Also the regeneration potential of the human body is limited. That's why old people die (for example of SARS-Cov-2).
    The problem with the "Coronavirus" is that the prevalence of severe symptoms and the damage done to your body is significantly higher than it's the case for Influenza or other common diseases. It's not all good if you just survive the infection. So the amount of infections should be kept as low as possible. We don't know if there will ever be a vaccine or effective treatment.
    In my opinion they should have done a super strict lock down Wuhan style for a month in every region with infected people all over the world. Then this Covid thing would not be a problem anymore. But that's probably impossible because short-sighted people insist on their freedom. So we will still talk about Corona in 2021 and probably 2022.

    You would be singing a different tune if you lost someone to this. In Sweden you could say we have been sacrificing the elderly so the rest of the country can remain open. There are moral and ethical downsides to this but our economy is doing fine compared to the rest of the world. It's too early to say if we made the right choice but our neighbour countries have been much better off with their measures

    This seems to be a step in the right direction to rectify that weight problem:

    I havent touched my index since I finished Alyx. There's nothing that really appeals to me, or anything that I'm willing to stand up 2+ hours for, getting shoulder and back ache.

    And? What would it change?
    Getting financial gains is not the only reason you should give credits to original authors.
     
    Congratulations. You are a part of the problem. Someone ripped off assets. Aggregated them to the workshop and then you took them and used in your work under your name because you thought it was ok to steal them because someone else already stole them and put them on workshop.
     
    Are we missing something here?
    I do think that but... Look at my reply to your third point.
     
    Of course we would gladly give you feedback on level design but 
    How can you expect us commit our free time when you don't want to commit yours to putting credit to the original authors of the assets you used in your map?

    Finished this yesterday, decided to give it at least a day before talking about it on here.
    I played it on the Oculus Rift S, which is a really amazing piece of hardware. I've had some very limited VR experiences in friends houses, but it was the very first time I've had the time to really sit down and appreciate it.... or rather stand up.
    The room VR is really awesome, I love that the Rift S didn't make me install those annoying sensors on my walls, putting even more cables in the room. Never, not even once during this 14 hour long campaign had problems with controllers or headset tracking, so the sensors on this thing work really well. Also relatively impressed with the built in speakers on the headset, while not too loud or bassy, the surround sound really feels great, and it's actually useful for gameplay too.
    The screen is ok, 80hz refresh rate is sorta noticable but you quickly forget about it. What I didn't like is that the resolution and screendoor effect still needs to be at least twice the quality of what we have here to really start to be impressive. I sometimes would take the headset off and glimpse at my monitor and it looks so much better there, color depth, sharpness, etc. But, the exchange of picture quality for full immersion was really worth it here I think... I mean, it's one of the most immersive experiences I've ever had with a video game, it sometimes really feels like you've been transported into another simulation, and not a very uplifting one either, the combine really fucked earth up. Lmao.
    Btw, I did experience some nausea on my first day, it lingered for a few hours too, which sucked. But now, it's completely fine, I don't even feel that eerie feeling when taking off the headset and returning to reality anymore.
    Anyway, the game... it took me a full hour, or probably more just to get to Russell's apartment, I was tossing bottles at the walls, throwing pots at cats, sketching penises on a glass window with a marker, reading newspapers, and just grabbing shit... I legit felt like a kid that just received the most amazing toy on Christmas morning, lol.
    It's a really polished game, the level design is really well done, and it works really well for VR. Sometimes it falls on the claustrophobic side, and lacking any meaningful exploration paths. When the levels do (rarely) open up a little bit, it feels great to just move around and take it all in. But I'm also well aware of the technical limitations of the platform.
    Overall, I'm glad I updated my PC and got a VR headset for this. Don't regret it one bit, amazing experience. And now... we have source 2 to play around with, lets go baby.

    So why not just look at some non-random ass crime level stats? It's easy, thanks to this new-fangled gizmotron they call the World Wide Cyber-Highway.
    The UK's ONS (Office For National Statistics) reports 726 homicides in the year ending March 2018. That works out at 12 offences per million population.
    Whilst in the US, the FBI estimate 16,214 in 2018. That's about 50 offences per million population. Both websites provide a similar enough definition of Homicide to make them a useful comparison.
    Blackdog's video above was a bit of fun and I'm sure that household is exceptional, but the person who bought those automatic rifles definitely has very unhealthy fantasies about unloading a shit-ton of bullets in to an intruder some day, and I don't think that particular mind-set is as exceptional as it should be.
