  1. Wish I could go. I'd been socking away money since last CitizenCon in the hopes of attending this year, but medical expenses in this country are highway robbery. Guess I'll have to kick plans to visit the UK several more years down the road.
  2. Looks a little fragile, to be honest. As someone with big, heavy hands I would be scared of potentially breaking it with any rapid movements.
  3. If it can break through rock, it can break through a hull.
  4. Does your wallet still have money in it? (Y/N)
  5. It's unfortunate Stephen Hawking couldn't be here to see such a pivotal moment for science, astrology and astrophysics.
  6. So in other words, it's a a subspace distortion field (aka warp) from Star Trek, just without a deflector array. You're speaking my technobabble now.
  7. If you're asking whether ships can be entirely refitted and re-purposed to fulfill a different role or add adding different components onto it, the answer so far has been "Maybe?" with raised voice and shrugged shoulders. CIG has mentioned that several ships will have kits that can be interchanged and that components can be added or swapped out, but I doubt it will be anything that can drastically alter something. We likely won't be able to weld metal sheets onto ships to create a jerry-rigged plate armor or something like that. But your example of gutting a Terrapin and putting in things to turn it into an RV, a UHaul or a taco truck might be in the realm of possibility. It all depends on what the game can handle.
  8. Today on April 1st, the moderators of r/Games decided to close the subreddit for 24 hours to bring attention to the serious issue of toxic behavior within the gaming community. We have all seen examples of some of attitudes highlighted in the thread in one place or another.

    There are even examples of this within the Star Citizen community, some on the web and others in person. The least we can do is call this kind of toxicity out when we see it and show support for those affected by it.

  9. Because in the increasingly neo-feudal late capitalist hellscape we're living in people have little else to look forward to other than death and the partaking of distractions to entertain themselves until the seas consume us. Anything which burdens or causes stress to us is now also pressing on that part of our brain aware of our hastening doom, and the desire for preservation kicks in. And like you mentioned, CIG wouldn't be doing this if they didn't have lots of data pointing to the $0 CCU market not being too large.
  10. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a dedicated battlespace control vessel of some kind.
  11. fix'd And also this. Fuck Epic for their shitty business practices, and fuck any developer who jumps to the Epic Store out of greed.

    Here is to hoping there is a tethering/spelunking/rope system included. Aside from making great gameplay opportunities, it'd be a nice addition to the movement in general.
  13. You guys are getting bent over the stool on that. Depending on where you look you can find Anthem at a third of the price here in the US.
  14. For those of you who haven't been keeping up with Digital Combat Simulator as of late, there is the possibility you've missed out on one of the biggest announcements in the last few years for the flight sim community. Heatblur Simulations, the team responsible for the absolutely gorgeous Saab AJS-39 Viggen supersonic attack aircraft and the MIG-21bis supersonic interceptor modules are set to release the a new module of the world famous Grumman F-14 Tomcat. The DCS community has been eagerly awaiting the module since its announcement several years ago, and its upcoming release on March 13th sets a new bar of quality for the title with the first true cooperative multicrew aircraft (trolling the pilot from the backseat of an Albatross doesn't count). First adopted by the 1974, the F-14A Tomcat was US Navy's all-weather carrier-based interceptor and air superiority fighter. The B variant expanded its role into a general purpose fighter capable of both air and ground attack in equal measure. The Tomcat made a name for itself during the Iran-Iraq War flying with the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force, where it earned an excellent victory rate despite its deployment in limited numbers. It continues to serve the IRIAF as an air superiority fighter and escort, and has been seen running missions against the Islamic State in the Levant. The Tomcat became world famous in the film Top Gun where it was featured prominently. Many experts and veteran pilots consider it to the best interceptor of the 20th century. The DCS Tomcat is set to release in a near complete state with a long list of features including but not limited to: A beautifully rendered and fully clickable 3D cockpit Access to the Pilot and RIO seat in both single and multiplayer, allowing for the first true multi-crew aircraft in DCS Accurate simulation of the F-14's flight model and systems such as the AN/AWG-9 Radar, AIM-54, and other avionics Jester AI - A dynamic fully voiced AI RIO that can operate all rear-seat functions including radar intercept, navigation, and weapons control, with a massive library of phrases and callouts Two full campaigns included Fully voiced and interactive tutorials covering everything you'll need to know to operate as both Pilot and RIO Near feature complete F-14B variant with the F-14A variant expected in the future Original OST by Meteor inspired by the Top Gun soundtrack, free for use by the community You can pre-order on the Heatblur Store for yourself, or package of you and a friend. You can also get it from the Eagle Dynamics store. DCS World BETA will be required. I've already pre-ordered the module for myself, and am hoping someone from the Imperium community wants to join me. I'm eager to jump in the back seat and fly RIO for someone.
  15. Having BALT both and RALT readings on the HUD symbology is going to be tremendously important for navigation, especially in low light or low visibility conditions. It's also one step closer toward making a truly comprehensive and functioning navigation. All we'd need then is a ground and space coordinate system.
  16. If you ever want to feel like an easily manipulated smooth-brained man ape, have a conversation with a civil architect and realize just how easily people are coerced into behaviors with the slightest visual signalling.

  17. "Hey, I heard it's snowing. That's too bad for you. Here's a picture of me where the weather is nice. Bet you wish you were here, huh?" srsly, dude....
  18. Yes, otherwise it would be near useless in its job. Why would you design a tug boat that can't return with its tow?
  19. I have a book of Pantone chips which have served a similar purpose. Whenever I need to calibrate a monitor, I look up a color chip, find the matching chip and then calibrate until they are noticeably similar. It also helps me when I need to have something designed online.
  20. All it took to end a month long government shutdown was controllers striking at two airports for less than a day.

    Just another reminder that Labor has more power than it thinks.

  21. The maximum would be 37 then if that were the case. I doubt they are all named after systems. Most are probably named after admirals, locations of note or have a legacy names (e.g. Enterprise). That is unless there are less than 37 frigates in the entire Navy, in which case it is much smaller than has been let on.
  22. And made a group of people that was otherwise indifferent to them hostile, causing problems for them and anything they try to do in the future.
  23. Let's take a look at the production and distribution companies... All the companies that made the 2016 film are involved in this project as well. On top of that, the film is going to begin production in summer of 2019 for a release in summer of 2020, giving the film less than a year for principal photography and post production before an edit can be sent out for marketing months ahead of release. I'm already out. Short of Mike Stoklasa and Jay Bauman giving this film a positive review in earnest, I'm not going to bother with it.
