Title: Tree-sawing-chopping super-vehicle! -- Lumberjack Dynasty demonstration video
Post by: JasonPratt on June 12, 2021, 08:54:34 PM
When I reported I had finished this game, over in the "Ha!" thread (http://www.grogheads.com/forums/index.php?topic=12688) (specifically here (http://www.grogheads.com/forums/index.php?topic=12688.msg693684#msg693684)), somewhat to my surprise I got some requests to see the aforementioned tree-sawing-chopping super-vehicle!

 :D

I quickly realized that mere snapshots would not do it justice, nor the game really, so I've put together a tour of about an hour around the game.



To get it processed and uploaded tonight, I filmed it in 720p, and of course YT will have squished that further, so my apologies for the slightly muddy visuals. But it's still better than mere snapshots.

The Thing That Just Mercs Trees shows up after 19:20, if you want or need to skip ahead.  :coolsmiley:

That is even better than expected.

Looks interesting.  Does the game have this bad boy in it?

I've tried a number of those Farming Sim type games in the past and they are a nice change of pace but at some point I can't help myself and start to just screw around, trying to race down roads in the tractors or see how far I can launch my hay bailer off a dock. If I were sitting in that log harvester I would have totally dropped some logs on the cars just to see if the logs just rolled off to the side and the cars started moving again.

Alas, no! -- and believe me, every player will wish it did, because the 'stump grinding' tool is just awful. (Not in real life, but it requires a level of precision in the game which the game engine does not easily provide.)

On the other hand, as long as you don't accidentally 'activate' a tree, you can run through an area with your chainsaw obliterating shrubs just as quickly, so there's that.
