What about Fallout 5? is it just a running joke at this point to see how long people will put up with the totally shit engine before they stop buying Bethesda games?

Excuse me, Creation Engine™ wasn't made in 1997, it's a revolutionary brand new engine developed in 2011 for the hit video game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim®. There is literally no reason for us them to develop another new engine.

I did notice even the normalfags were calling them out for using the same engine with the Fallout 76 debacle.

Stop being such an ignorant jackass. Dozens of games use gamebryo and don't suffer any major problems because they weren't coded by dipshit pajeets.

Because Source can't handle open worlds like the kind Bethesda makes. It relies on a map-by-map design, and each map can only be so big. Half-Life 2 tricked people into thinking it was massive because each level picks up where the previous left off, but it was still a trick. E.Y.E. and some Gmod maps push the level size to the limit, and both games are notoriously buggy and crash-happy.

Honestly, Bethesda would probably be better off going Unity at this point. The Daggerfall port is about as stable as any given Bethesda title, even in its unfinished state, and shows that the engine can do an Elder Scrolls game to some degree. It's also simple enough for any retard to use. Maybe that will let them focus less on bughunting and more on actually putting out a good game for once this decade.

Morrowind is a buggy piece of shit, worse than Daggerfall in all ways except for the fact it doesn't use the (then revolutionary) buggy procedural generation. Daggerfall was aspirational, every game they've made after the death of the Xngine has been "humble" (read: miserable and intentionally shit). It would be better for Bethesda to be relegated to making shitware and movie licenses than it would for them to make actual games. Julian LeFay was the only one who was holding the company up on the programming side, and Ted Peterson (unrelated to the other god of game design, Sandy Petersen) on the design side.

The engine has received significant upgrades since 1997, Source engine still contains source code from Quake, is Source engine an engine for 1996?

The real problem is that Bethesda are a fucking joke, they simultaneously hire talentless staff and then they want games finished as fast as possible, so if it ain't broke they probably wont' fix it.

That said looking at Prey 2 and it's features I suspect that Bethesda may be positioning that games engine as a replacement for Creation Engine, which would be good, since it will kill modding outright.

It can if you know how to use it. It can even do physics that aren't framerate-bound if you're smart enough to program that.

It has many flaws but those are just made up by incompetent Todd-likes.

It's rendering is shit and can't handle too many triangles or the object will flicker. It has many other flaws too.

Cryengine is good. There's nothing wrong with it. It's an open world engine to begin with.

The reason it doesn't work with scam citizen is because of how scam citizen just throws a galaxy at the engine instead of using simplifications for it.

However I doubt Todd can make anything good on any engine in existence.

Yes, very stable engine.

They don't have Carmack in the company anymore anon. I used to read his old personal blog and in one of them he discussed how he encouraged team code reviews with everyone in the room, not to shame people but so that everyone could learn from the same mistake. I'd be surprised if that was still the standard at id.

Forgot to mention that that blog doesn't seem to exist any more or I'd link the post.

The fact that even had to be preambled in should be proof enough it's a hopeless cause.

Carmack was just a good programmer, he was terrible at actually making games as Doom 3 and Rage should prove.

Yes but there's no reason to assume that id will produce competent tech now that he is gone. He was never actually interested in game design, he was playing the long game for VR

they already have

that Crytek programmer made id tech 6 from ground up, its massive improvement over embarrassment that id tech 5 was

Carmack was good programmer before Rage, before he made shit for the consoles

not exactly sure why it all went that way, did what he worked on didnt pan out? and he had to scrap together something from nothing, who knows

I'm actually not sure, and I'd like to think I'm most qualified to say so because I specifically asked him about it during his Q&A at Quakecon. Yes, at the end of one of his hours-long lectures – I am also a programmer. As far as I can tell he was experimenting with the whole megatextures concept and pulled a Crytek, meaning he released tech which consumer machines were simply not ready for. Ironically the performance bottleneck is not GPUs but hard disk read speed (according to him). If everyone had SSDs when Rage was released, it might have been fine. I'm not sure if this is due to genuine market ignorance on Carmack's part, but I have not known him to shirk optimization in the past, but maybe writing code for consoles wore him down. Who knows.

Has Bethesda ever actually fixed anything? I can't even think of a game they've made that doesn't have some form of game-breaking bug.

No. If anything they only ever broke things more and more.

People still care about Bitch-esda after all they did?!

I appreciate the discussion, but pull your head out of your mouth and stop giving them the attention they don't deserve.

Have a nice day…
