was it because of dl size or the look of fs1 content
Download size. A not-insignificant number of people still had 56k modems during HLP's early history. That's why you'll occasionally see "56k users beware" on old threads, especially image-heavy threads.
The download experience these days is leagues better than it was back then. Back when we were hosted by 3D Action Planet (pre-2006), all public downloads were required to be hosted by FilePlanet. You would have to wait 2 or 3 minutes to be "added to the download queue", and then once you were at the front of the line you would have to wait another 10 minutes or more for the download to complete. (The ST:R trailer gives a wink and a nod to this with "Not Distributed by FilePlanet" in the fine print.)
Also I played a free game on Steam: Princess Remedy in a Wolrd of Hurt.
A very short game that wouldn’t have been out of place on a Gameboy, it’s an overhead shmup with a Zelda-style overworld.
The game has a very tongue-in-cheek tone, whn you win and become queen you can choose who to marry among the people you’ve healed and of course I went with “some girl”. No really, there is a NPC named “some girl”.
I’m also attempting again to play Everspace (PC)
This time I played on easy and it’s much more bearable, if anything for the fact that you have much more time to explore and gather resources.
Is it me or I’m more interested in the “encounters” from the DLC than the main story?
Anyway I’ve finally beaten sector 7 and now it starts the relatively low stakes part now that the main mystery (which wasn’t that much of a mystery) is solved.
Still, on easy the RNG crap is much less annoying which makes the game fun even for the non hardcore like me.
Oh, you’ll still die a lot but almost never before finishing sector 2 because the game decided to utterly starve you of resources. Yes, technically you get less money but I ended up getting much more money in every single run because I tend to get much further even if I got only twice to sector 7 until now.
There is still the possibility I’ll switch to the other difficulty levels once I find the right glyphs since they have higher blueprint drops.
"Warning! 8MB download!"
I also find it hilarious that in 2019 MS Outlook still thinks 8 MB is "huge".
Could you add the exception rule to the OP? (In fact I already made a setting, just the screen I took looked bad)
