  1. Saw this on Reddit this morning and was absolutely blown away. The possibilities for this joystick to completely replace dual stick/HOTAS setups or to complement them considerably look to be awesome. Sublight Dynamics plans to launch a Kickstarter to fund production of the device late this summer. What does everyone think of this beauty? Here's a video of the device in action in a number of games including SC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNSzqO93FN4 Here is the Reddit thread: https://i.redd.it/ok83fxvynxt21.jpg And here is the companies website where you can sign up for notification of the Kickstarter launch (on the FAQ page): https://www.sublightdynamics.com

    Aegis Idris Frigate

    For anyone who did not see this, after the reveal of the Drake Kraken with some rather inflammatory material presented about a certain other ship...Aegis decided to respond formally 😎

    Happy Birthday!

  4. Thanks for the welcome everyone! After being around the base for the last week, I have definitely found my home!
  5. I agree with you Boildown. Mars is an important stepping stone for many new aspects of manned spaceflight, but private space companies have both the resources, innovation, and persistence required to get to the inner planets and their moons in the next 10-20 years. The Saturn and Jupiter systems combined have 129 moons (62 and 67) and I believe NASA's long term efforts should be focused on exploring and cataloging these systems as much as we possibly can. Clearly Enceladus and Europa are tantalizing candidates for further exploration (NASA submarines!), but there are tons of other moons covered in ice that are worth exploring as well. Ganymede is nearly as large as Mars!
  6. I think we will likely see a continued effort in the PU 3.x Beta towards completion of the features that are prerequisite to the 4.0 launch for the rest of this year while SQ42 nears completion. If that means that we have to wait until 2018 for SQ42 & the 4.0 PU launch to coincide, I am happy to wait for that. Then again I just came back to paying really close attention to this game and from what I have been reading on these forums, there are a LOT of people chomping at the bit, which I completely understand :D.
  7. Great video VoA. Awesome insight about the inner workings of CIG's project management; 40+ MS Project master schedules among the 5 offices comprising 75000+ closed tasks/bugs and another 18000+ active. The scale of the development in action with this company is just awesome to see. It is so easy for a software company to take the quick path and cut corners in order to put something in front of customers, ignoring fundamental quality factors. This video really shows how committed CIG is to building SQ42 and SC the right way, laying the foundation for a game that will literally last for decades. I love this company so much.

    New Headset

    Ever since I made the switch from Logitech/Audio Technica headphones to Sennheiser...I can't imagine going back. In my opinion, the overall build and sound quality are just unmatched for the cost, which is generally pretty competitive. I have a pair at work (HD 598C) and two pairs at home (PC360D and GSX 1200 PRO).

    Hi all

    Welcome to the Base!

    RSI - Polaris - Corvette

    My thoughts exactly Reavern. The utility and offensive ability of the Polaris will make raiders/pirates think twice about engaging an expedition with one at the center. Imagine the Polaris also likely serves as a mobile FOB in newly charted areas that do not have system infrastructure or logistical supply to support more autonomous exploration.
  11. Ex Machina is one of my favorite movies too. I had not heard anything about this movie before seeing your post, it's great to see another major work in the pipeline from Garland!

    RSI - Polaris - Corvette

    That's an interesting read, thanks for the link! I CCU'd my Aquilla into a Carrack for those very reasons. Exploration ought to be one of the solo roles the Polaris excels in. For fleet combat, the thought of multiple Polaris squadrons of 3-5 ships roaming the AO just makes me giddy.

    RSI - Polaris - Corvette

    I recently picked up my Polaris and am just head over heels in love with this ship. I'm thinking about secondary roles for the ship and I'm wondering about it playing the backbone of a large exploration expedition. It has the capacity to hold a Terrapin and would make a great escort for Carracks and Aquillas. Might be a bit overkill too considering the attacking role of the ship in fleet combat, but from what I can see here, we have quite a few of these beauties so the opportunity will surely arise. Thoughts?
