  1. As some of you may be aware, over the last 2-3 months I have been speccing out, and then building my new gaming monster. Whilst it's name is still a work in progress (if anyone has any good ideas, I would appreciate it), I have now completed it and am using it (I forgot how much of a bitch it is to setup a new PC software wise...). Without further ado, I present the Imgur album of my new PC. http://imgur.com/a/vePIx Specs: i7 6850k (OC'd to 4.4ghz) Asus Rampage 5 Edition 10 Motherboard 64gb Corsair Dominator Platinum 3000 DDR4 Samsung 960 Pro 1tb nvme SSD 2x Samsung 850 evo 1tb SSD Corsair AX 1500i Power Supply 2x Nvidia Titan X Pascal (2050mhz clock, 10200 Memory) Windows 10 Pro 64 bit Case: Thermaltake Core W100 (Hard to find anything that would fit my rad overkill) Cooling: EK D5 Pump PWM EK 360mm Coolstream XE Radiator EK 560mm Coolstream CE Radiator EK X-RES 250 EK FC-Titan X (Pascal) and Backplate (x2) EK Rampage V Edition 10 RGB monoblock (cools PCH and CPU and VRM) EK EKoolant UV Green PETG 16mmOD Tubing Other: EVGA HB SLI Bridge Cablemod Modflex Lime Green sleeved cables (UV reactive) Cablemod UV Magnetic Strips (4x 60cm) Firestrike Results: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/11348319 GPU temp under load hit a max of 46C, CPU hit a max of 71C.

  3. Being a certified AWS architect myself, I am sooooo happy to hear they will be using AWS for their infrastructure. This will mean good pings all around the world and gives them the ability to use auto-scaling of their infrastructure for SC. PS. All SCB servers run on AWS!

  5. Hey everybody thank you all for accepting me into Imperium! I have played with a few of you already and have had some good times early into my membership here and hope for many more to come. I figured I would post here a little about myself so that maybe I could offer some help in some areas if not in the game then real life, wait star citizen isn't real life?.. it is for me! Anyway I am a 29 year old Chef of 10+ years with an education in pastry, if you have any food or recipe questions i'm your guy! I am also full time streaming Star Citizen as I am unemployed so I thought it would be the perfect chance to see if I can make it with Twitch, any and all support in this endeavour is greatly appreciated! I am more interested in PvE content than anything, I think I will be focusing on smuggling but I enjoy any challenging grind and am above average at PvP content. Again, thank you all for having me in the Org and I hope to have some epic adventures with you all.

  6. In the wee hours of the morning, myself and @Norem decided we'd have a bit of fun pushing the limits of the PTU 2.6.0k. After hours of trying to fit a Merlin into a Caterpillar with varying degrees of explosive failure, Norem decided to grab a Starfarer and attempt to carry the intrepid little Merlin to places never traversed by its kind and do battle with villainous pirates, for science! Credit to @Norem for staying patient and willing to go along with this crazy little venture.

  7. CIG is currently investigating the issues with Echo 11, the StarMarine map with the terrible lag, for anyone that has played this map and willing to fill out the survey it would greatly be appreciated to hopefully find the issue relating to all of the problems if not narrow it down.

  8. This is why I'm glad Star Citizen isn't Free To Play. Planetside 2 was (I've stopped playing it in part because of this, or I would be able to say "is") riddled with cheaters out to just ruin everyone's day. Sure they would get banned eventually, but they'd just make another free account and keep doing it. Since Star Citizen costs money, cheaters have to pay every time they get banned, and that's a key feature of Star Citizen that shouldn't be underestimated.

  9. I wonder how long it will take for the 1st guys to come and complain that their superior skills allowed them to headshoot 20 people in a row from across the map and that it wasn't an aimbot that did it I also wonder how long it will take for the 1st guy to lawyer up and demand his completionist package and/or money back after he gets caught cheating OOOOH the drama, it is going to be enjoyable .... Seriously though: I sure hope Chris rams his fist elbow deep into the asshole of anyone trying to cheat in this game, cheating has ruined way too many games for me already GO GET EM CHRIS !!!

  11. It's too bad you can't rehost shit video content to deny views. Either way, I'm not watching those. As for LY, I trust the guys and gals running the show. Brian Chambers is still plugging away, and TZ seems happy doing what he's doing. Given what the team hopes to accomplish and what they've been delivering I expect this move fits their vision and therefore suits Star Citizen and its players.

  16. Hi guys, I joined Imperium today and already had fun with a few of you on Teamspeak playing some Star Marine. I followed more or less closely the development of the game and decided last week to pledge getting the package of the Aurora MR + Squadron 42. I played a couple hours straight in the PU and was already hooked, and bought an Hornet Ghost. So now I'm a Colonel The game reminds me all the fun I had playing Freelancer a couple years ago and I hope to get as much fun if not more playing this game with you guys. See you in the Verse Edit: I'm also looking to join a Unit. Play time between 18:00 and 23:00 EST (23:00 to 4:00 UTC) on weekdays and w/e on weekend Having a F7C-S Ghost, and planning to acquire a F7C-M Super Hornet and/or a Sabre. I'm looking for a mix of Target Acquisition / Forward Observation, Covert Reconnaissance, Space Supremacy, Search and Destroy, Bounty Hunting, Interdiction / Raiding. I'd like to get a bigger ship than a single-seater fighter too, someday.

  23. Watching near misses like this will hopefully be rare but mindblowing at the same time. Its insane to see this level of attention to detail and precision in object interaction... to make the Caterpillar's hitbox so precise... just wow Edit: The Caterpillar in its full pocket-carrier glory:

  24. You can Google the various articles about it (as you should) - but Ridley Scott is coming back with a Vengeance...... with Alien Convenant and now the sequel to Blade Runner (with apparently another Blade Runner Planned after this one). Of course....... Harrison Ford is in it as well Looks Awesome!!!

  26. The main reason for requesting video evidence is of course to not get swamped with unsubstantiated claims by peoples who just got killed by more skilled players. Anyway its great this has become an issue so CIG puts peoples on this early. Zero tolerance for cheaters in multiplayer.

  27. Kudos to CIG for doing what's right! This is exactly what they deserve... cheating in (offline) single player games I understand, but in MP there's simply no excuse.

  28. Toby Lewin Digital Artist - Cloud Imperium Games This is a concept for the medical infirmary on board the Idris in Star Citizen. The brief was to create a super hygienic environment filled with bright and minimal surfaces. The ship team did an amazing job getting this in engine! https://www.artstation.com/artwork/54yyz Seeing interior shots like this gets me so pumped up. Toby Lewin Digital Artist - Cloud Imperium Games Idris Hygiene Module Concept art for the Aegis hygiene module design. The aim was to create a modular bathroom design that could easily be reconfigured for different ships by the same manufacturer. This design shows 4 separate quadrants: showers, toilets, wash basins and locker area. Each module can be swapped out or repeated depending on the ship design. Toby Lewin Digital Artist - Cloud Imperium Games Bengal Bridge Consoles Concepts https://www.artstation.com/artwork/21Ame and hevy console is here https://www.artstation.com/artwork/aBgK8 Concept created for the front Bengal bridge consoles. The awesome chair model was created by the super talented Robin Karlsson - https://www.artstation.com/artist/robinkarlsson I know the last photo is technically Bengal, but youd have to wonder how similar they would be to the Idris.

  34. Well the Gpa came over for the holidays, saw my sweet ass rig (courtesy of @Juntau and the SCB community), and said "Here is a $1000 bucks. I want a pc that is fast and cool like yours." I said "Alright Grandpa, but only if we team up later to play some Overwatch and pwn some n00bs!" So my Grandpa is 86 years old, obviously he is not going to be a power user playing VR games everyday. Just needs something that is fast, efficient, and affordable. Obviously the budget is $1000. Doesn't need to be a power house gaming rig either. Light internet surfing, email, excel sheets, and copying data/pictures now and then. He would also like for it to have the ability to "play games" (I'm not even sure he knows how to install them LUL). This is where i'm at right now: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/M2tfVY = $1138 Couple things I want to keep in this build: Black and White Themed I love the NZXT Case and Water Cooler that I picked currently - not changing these two items Would like to keep these so I can overclock the proc and get more performance out of the i5. MUST have an optical drive Would be nice to fit a brand new copy of windows 10 into the budget if possible. Would be nice if I could include one led light strip to accent the Whites/blacks Lets get this puppy under $1000! Feedback needed!

  36. What I like is that they're taking steps to making cheat prevention in Single player since things in SQ42 will carry over to your PU character.

  39. My honest opinion is that we don't need mechs for every scifi game, but we are getting them Class IX – Full blown mech suit. Somewhere between a space suit and the power loader from Alien. These repair the outsides of large ships, move heavy objects in hangars, etc. Keep in mind this was from a long time ago and the armor mechanics have changed quite a bit https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/transmission/12978-Introducing-Your-RSI-Space-Suit

  40. My Resolution: Don't bother with resolutions. Because if they weren't important enough that I wouldn't act upon them immediately, then an arbitrary promise to myself made on a certain day wouldn't make them any more important. Wait, that's a resolution...shit!

  41. They basically just had to change the references to which frameworks they were using and could keep all their own code with maybe minor changes that they did in a day or two. Maybe this picture helps symbolizing the code they work with: basically before they had red and blue now they have all three that's why they did it. But they did not loose anything from red or blue as Lumberyard still has red in it and the blue stuff just adds on top anyway. Also with Amazon being a more ambitious company with more resources and Crytek being potentially dead or static there is high potential of worthy stuff in the green area getting added or updated in the future like ambitious stuff they want to do with VR and such.

  43. I only really read reddit and here for Star Citizen news, and the clickbaity articles and videos on Lumberyard hadn't even reached my attention, so the community is doing a good job of not promoting the idiocy. This came completely out of left field but it really looks like a good move. I have to think that Amazon specifically targeted Star Citizen with Lumberyard, because it just seems too perfect of a coincidence otherwise. But this looks like one of those win-wins you hope for, and probably makes it far more likely that at some future date CIG can license out Star Engine so that our Battletech or Robotech or Star Wars games of our dreams can be made . 3.0 having great new netcode is the next big milestone for Star Citizen (obviously), and it'll validate everything they're doing.

  44. This imo is the most important part. All this time my greatest fear for the game was servers, where they'd be established and what regions will get the most lag... and unless they used a lot of funds to establish and maintain the server(s), CIG would need to use the services of the likes of Google or Amazon (which is what they've done). I wonder how CIGs new approach will affect their game in comparison to EVE Online's single-shard server?

  46. @Core @Doopsums They're currently a title in the Portal that give you a gold tag when you reach the top 10 of the leaderboards in arena commander 2 weeks after the patch has been released. You can look at Sir_Belial portal profile to know what I'm talking about. Can we get a tag for Star Marine made so when some of us do achieve Top 10 we will get the tag.

  47. Nice. I think this is a great time to show others what we're made of, especially since the new flight model and an actual arena combat system for both flight and ground. I already have a few guesses as to which who will be up there but we might be surprised as to who else will be, too. I know there's a few people who have been lurking, waiting for the right moment to get in there and kick ass

  48. OMG...... so.... I have no intent of keeping my Caterpillar, BUT.... I am a little salty that after you beat Pirate Swarm, you get the option to BUY a whole NEW pirate paint schemed Caterpillar and NOT just a $5 skin. Kinda BS in my opinion.

  49. About 2 weeks ago I ran across a Star Citizen Youtube video. I was hooked immediately! I am completely new to the SC arena, but I know this is it! I have been spending countless hours preparing for what Org. to follow. I have watched numerous videos and have read pages of posts. The only Org. that comes close to meeting the standard of HOW I wish to play this game is THE IMPERIUM! I have not been accepted, yet, but I am excited to start and make my contribution!
