Government, law and order?

So I’ve been scouring over the forums and I’ll be dammed if I’ve seen anything that is both relevant and consistent in regards to government and how governments would work in LT. I have seen many topics in regards to factions. I’m not talking here about the mining operation you start in the ass end ...

Re: Treason?

Since I buried it at the bottom of my post, I do want to repeat that I'm not agitating for LT to have the depth, and certainly not the specific mechanics of a feudal monarchy simulator. I was more interested in establishing a spectrum on which the debate could happen. I do think that NPC relations ...

Re: Treason?

In my gaming experience, systems that model interpersonal relations need a critical mass of complexity before convincing results emerge. If loyalty is measured by the size of a paycheck, and a sum of previous transactions, then maintaining a relationship becomes a boring mathematical exercise. I'd ...

Re: Treason?

One more question: Does anyone know if there is going to be a reputations system in place. I mean if you tend to be a treacherous little weasel, why would anyone be willing to take a risk in hiring you? In my opinion this would create consequences for treason, I mean in the real world if I were to b...

Re: Treason?

I’m really curios to see how this mechanic could work. exactly like it works now. if(own interests > employers interests * loyality) { pursue own interests } My question is if there is something like a loyalty system or loyalty reputation system? I have not seen much on the subject to be honest. If...

Re: Treason?

I'd wager that treason may occur with the current AI. After all, anyone will turn for a price. I'd agree with that if we were talking about the business minded people. But as Josh has said an NPC’s motivation might not be money it might be something else, like research or exploration. In which case...

Treason?

With all the talk about NPCs and their motivations and goals, I was wondering if there is going to be treason within the LT universe. I mean if treason is going to be to the benefit of the NPC’s goals it seems like the logical choice to make. If treason is a plausible phenomenon in the LT universe t...

Re: Very Superstitious

So nothing has a negative effect on supersticious belief? My what a sad world we live in! Or you live in! Sorry to say but all you’ve given me is a bunch of stories bassed on your own word, which is not worth much to me. you havent provided anything but your word. you can start to disregard others ...

Re: Very Superstitious

Oh, it's not just based on my word. You can try looking up Daniel Kahneman, who's a good primer on cognitive fallacies. You can also look up, as I suggested, the history of scientific racism and phrenology to see how "scientific" thinking can propagate some incredibly dubious beliefs through a cult...

Re: Very Superstitious

So basically intelligence and education would have a negative correlation with superstitious beliefs? That's a fallacy without basis, that is normally arrived at by circularly defining a "superstition" as "things smart people don't believe in." It's the I, you, him problem. Of course you think you'...
