  1. Probably the best monitor I've ever seen 21:9 144hz 1ms Response $580 on Amazon
  2. Howdy everyone, As many of you may remember, Imperium and friends previously became fairly heavily involved in the Life is Feudal MMO upon its early access release. With our superior numbers we established one hell of a defensible base, set up production lines for all needed materials like food, weapons, and armor, and used our diplomatic skills to carve out a respectable sphere of influence, at one point nearly controlling an entire half of a server grid between ourselves and our vassals. We were involved in many wars, fielded a well-known cavalry corps, and participated in great battles like this regularly: Taking a Chinese base with no survivors While the going was great while the group was still active, slowly people began to part ways with Life is Feudal for a variety of reasons, and the group was whittled down to a shadow of its former self. Today, Imperium's presence in Life is Feudal MMO is an odd one, with a core group 3-4 active players essentially focused on the sole objective of maintaining a base intended to house dozens of people. We have stockpiles of weapons but no-one to use them, piles of armor but no-one to wear it. We've essentially got the fruits of countless hours of grinding but nobody around to actually use them. In light of this, I've decided to put together the following: On Friday night (5/23/2018) at 7:30 EST, I'll be gathering as many people as possible and we'll set out on a great expedition from the base. A ton of the older guilds around during LiF MMOs heyday have more or less died out, and left what are essentially ruins behind. I intend for us to explore around the map (particularly the eastern island and northern areas, which are the most war-torn), looting abandoned settlements as we find them and killing hostile players if we encounter them. If we manage to say alive until 10PM EST, judgement hour will begin and various castles will become vulnerable to raids, and if we find a suitable target in our explorations we may as well launch a raid as well. All needed supplies will be provided for those who show up, everything from weapons to horses to potions to siege equipment, and the responsibility you will have is ensuring your character stats are high enough to use the weapons and armor you request. We've already got around 8-10 players intending to show up, and anyone else interested is obviously encouraged to give it a try. If you're a new player, you get LiF:YO (and thus MMO access) on g2a for around $10 now, and if you're an old player looking to come back, I can't think of a better time where you'll be able to jump right into the best parts of the game, skipping the grinding aspects. I think it'll be a great time, and I hope to see you there!
  3. Not sure if this is the right subforum but I just wanted to share my new gaming PC that I've built. After my old one was really showing its age (i5 2500k with 8GB RAM) and having issues where it would randomly decide to shut down on me and forcing me onto a crummy laptop for a week I felt it was time to get something new which would also provide me with the means to actually play Squadron 42 and Star Citizen at some point. Here is the list of components that I used and some pictures ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X CODE Intel Core i7-8700K Corsair Hydro H115i Corsair 32GB DDR4-3000 Vengeance RGB (2x16) ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC Strix Gaming 11G Corsair Carbide Clear 400C White Corsair AX860 PSU Samsung 960 PRO M.2 512GB SSD Corsair ML120 Premium - Twin Pack Corsair ML140 Premium - Twin Pack Picture of all the components prior to unpacking and assembly It was a tight fit due to the midsize case but I was able to fit everything properly. I replaced the original casefan and the ones for the radiator with the ML fans. And here's the end-result! I wanted to go with an Aegis Avenger theme and I believe it worked out great I got the Aegis decal from a site called Redbubble
  4. Hey guys looking for some opinions on a build for a client He plans to use it for gaming but its also intended for schoolwork and general work. The main request was that it was not "slow" for general use (MS word/web surfing) and to play rainbow 6: Siege and other games. Im not sure if they have a monitor but ima say its for 1080p gaming Would you guys change anything? Budget version - https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/V49H6X Recommended - https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/TqvtwV
  5. Hey guys, I know there is a lot of knowledge to tap into here in the SCB forums. I have had a few conversations with close friends about their opinions and knowledge on various current hardware and want to continue hearing what I should aim for. This is all for a new rig. I am going with a budget of $4,000 for the tower. This is going to be a gaming computer, so I am looking for high performance and graphics integrity. The tower is going to support three 30" 2k monitors (I don't think 4k is in reasonable price range yet). Case: Still looking - want something that is visually appealing (show off cooling/components) CPU: i9 or Ryzen? (Friends suggest the Threadrippers) Discussions I saw here on SCB say i7 is good for SC - I am still learning what the differences are between all options RAM: 32GB or I just may go to 64GB because reasons (memory is so cheap!) SSD: Samsung M.2 2TB (Samsung 960 PRO?) - looking to have more M.2s connected in the future, maybe one (smaller) that is SC only HDD: Looking for a mass storage (maybe 10TB) array in a RAID parity, can come later (months) after initial build Motherboard: Looking at a GIGABYTE one - something that gives me the versatility I am looking for GFX: 1080Ti (x2) - looking for 2k at 100+ FPS (3 monitors) Cooling: I want to go all liquid cooling, maybe multiple circuits. PSU: I have not looked into a power supply yet, waiting to see what the rest demands with room to add more stuff later. Again, this is early in developing what I want and I am always welcome to suggestions. I want this thing to be upgradeable, particularly to add to it (M.2 SSDs and HDs for example). I already have keyboard, mouse, HOTAS, and G27 to plug into this thing. Looking forward to see what the minds in SCB present!

    Squad Ops!

    Hey guys / gals! I'm looking to organize some time to play Squad with people. Whether you've played Squad hours upon hours or never played the game before you're welcome to join us. Just lemme know on here when a good time is for you and let's see if we can get a couple games in sometime soon! Times Available: Sunday through Wednesday: 0000 - 0600
  7. Greetings everyone. A game that I've been keeping an eye on for a while has just entered Kickstarter and I figured I'd share it with you all. Seeing how some of us here were quite excited to play Ark, etc. it isn't a too far stretch. Saurian is an Open-World Survival Game with a high focus on being scientifically accurate and up to date. They just started their Kickstarter today and if everything works out well, everyone should be able to play January 2017. The game is based around dinosaurs. Other than Ark and similar games however, it is set in a true location and recreates the Flora and Fauna accurately based on the fossil record. The players will take over a dinosaur and you can play him through the different growth stages, from Hatchling to Adult. Anyway, I'll give you all the Kickstarter Link to check things out yourself: Saurian
  8. So as it turns out, there's a group of developers of an Indie company working on a remastered version of Knights of the Old Republic in the UE4. There's an articule about it on Kotaku and this is the website for the Remaster. I have a lot of fond, great memories of KOTOR and frequently returned to the game even way past it's original release. Therefore, I am happy to see something like this, although it is always questionable whether a fan based remaster will truly be finished properly. I do think it's still fairly early in development but the pictures they put out sure look interesting. Anyone else that gets excited about these news or a potential Remaster by Disney like it was rumored last year?
  9. Hey folks! As some of you might remember/know I will move to Japan this coming spring. So I have some things I intend to get rid off. Including my two(2) ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q's. I thought I might as well try to sell them here as well! If you want to buy a monitor the price is €650(Euro) each which includes shipping costs within Europe! I have a verified paypal account and if you are interested then let me know! These monitors are on sale on other media as well so if you are interested then let me know ASAP and we can come to an agreement! Update: Both monitors sold!
  10. Hey fella What are you all playing to quench your thirst for Star Citizen? Put a picture, or a video, post about what keeps you occupied, what you like and what you don't like I found this game and seriously considering getting it -has anyone tried it?

  12. Hey all, After the last few days of processing the events since The Escapist article, I decided to formulate my own thoughts toward this whole situation into an article format of my own. I have included my real name because I have nothing to hide, and these thoughts are my own. While I have no problems with people commenting on this post, I would ask people keep it civil so I don't have to end up moderating my own thread. Please note that the target for this article is not people on this board, but the overall world-wide gaming community that has given WAY too much power to gaming news blogs/sites in the last decade. Disclaimer: I am writing this as a Star Citizen backer, not as an Imperium FC or SCB Admin, and my views are in no way reflecting the policies or views of SCB or other Admins and Moderators of the SCB and Imperium sites and forums.

  14. Warning: You're going to waste ~3 minutes of valuable life time by watching this. Seems they made it private for now. Probably a good choice. I hope they did this on purpose. I really had to laugh about it.
  15. Intel INTC +0.41% and Micron jointly announced a brand new memory technology today, dubbed 3D XPoint (Cross Point) memory. 3D XPoint is fundamentally a new class of memory, the first to be introduced in many years. With current architectures, the system memory and storage are usually two separate subsystems. Take a PC for example. In most PCs, the storage attaches to the system via the SATA interface or PCIExpress EXPR +0.00% and system memory resides in its own slots, connected directly to the memory controller in a CPU. They’re two separate entities, that each require their own interconnects, slots, ports, etc. And they operate at vastly different performance levels. 3D XPoint technology, however, because it is so fast and durable (at least according to Intel INTC +3.45%and Micron), could be used to replace both system memory and storage with a single repository, attached to the processor via a much wider bandwidth interface—or perhaps reside right even on the same die down the road. This type of configuration could not only enable much smaller form factors and simplify manufacturing, but be much more powerful and responsive too. Imagine an ultra-small form factor PC, for example, that can instantly power up and start off from the exact point it was shut down, with hundreds of gigabytes of high-speed memory, that’s capable of transferring data at many gigabytes or even terabytes per second. And that the data can be accessed in Nano-second scales. System memory limitation could essentially be eliminated and there would be no latency associated with copying data from a relatively slow storage device into system memory. sources : http://www.forbes.com/sites/marcochiappetta/2015/07/28/3d-xpoint-memory-technology-could-usher-in-a-new-golden-age-of-electronics/ http://www.forbes.com/sites/davealtavilla/2015/07/28/intel-and-micron-jointly-announce-game-changing-3d-xpoint-memory-technology/ We’re talking about game changing stuff here. 3D XPoint memory could usher in entire new system architectures in not only the consumer space, but in the enterprise as well. As it stands now, Big Data analytics can use all of the storage capacity and latency reduction available. Enormous amounts of time are spent copying data to and from storage to memory. Should Intel’s and Micron’s 1000x performance improvement claims ring true, big data analytics could get an unprecedented shot in the arm. The potential applications for the technology is so wide reaching and disruptive, it’s difficult to imagine all of the things it could enable moving forward at this early juncture. If you follow technology closely though, today’s announcement is about as exciting as it gets.

    E3 2015

    Since we're fast approaching E3 2015, I was wondering if there are any plans by people. I know I watch all the live streams every year and try to get as much info in as fast as possible. I didn't even let the time differences stop me whenever I was in Germany and not in the US still. Now having moved back to Germany, I'll do the same once more. So, perhaps gather with some people on TS, set up an E3 Channel for the duration of E3 and then people can hop in there during the livestreams and talk about it?
  18. So it starts with me being self conscious about drinking soda all the time when I was first gaming or just in general hanging around the PC. [From 2007 to 2014 of July] And Now I primarily drink Low calorie Gatorade -02.] still I acknowledge this is unhealthy, but Now I'm curious... What do you guys Eat/Drink while hanging around the PC? It could be when you're gaming, surfing the web, etc.
  19. Hey guys! I wanted to start this topic to help anyone looking for a compatible laptop (that doesn't break the bank) for Star Citizen. After months of research I found the Lenovo y510p. Depending on the model it comes with an i5 or i7, GeForce 750m or 755m, and is able to use a second GPU by way of the "UltraBay" for SLi. I did a quick (no audio) benchmark in Star Citizen with the i7, 755m version. I only had the one card in it when I did this. When I get the add-on card I'll do another benchmark, and when DFM drops expect another video or 10 . I posted pictures of it in the "Post your rig" topic, but figured that it wouldn't be a bad idea to start a new topic for laptops that can play. In my research there wasn't much information, so I kind of took a leap in the dark on this, but it works amazingly well! Cheers everyone! Ohh, and here's the YouTube link. Edit 1: I've got a new video up for 720p on low settings. These are the settings I find most playable. There will be another video coming soon with 720 and 1080 in their various graphics qualities. I just wanted to get something more polished up for now. Cheers! Edit 2: Link for the SSD fix and partition configurations can be found here. The SSD is not mounted from the factory, so you can't actually install anything on it until you do this. Cheers!
  20. Hey Everyone. Just Thought I'd break the Ice and Start a Post on "Other Items" lol. I have two Items to part with. I have recently been given a Logitech G510 Gaming keyboard and a G600 MMO mouse from a PC enthusiast family friend. Both are Still brand new and with Packaging/Warranty/Rules/Guidebooks. (They have been laying around for 1 week since I recieved them) Both are selling Separate, Though, if you really want both of them together, I'm sure we can come to some sort of Civilized agreement I prefer Paypal. Actually, I'd only take paypal, Fast, Secure and Theft Free. If you would like, A MiddleMan Is allowed (though i've no clue how that works, Preferably one of Fleet Command or HR Members) Prices: Varies Between Countries, Please Check if you are interested in your currency to the Australian Dollar. Logitech G510 Gaming Keyboard: $70 Logitech G600 MMO Mouse $65 As I said Before, Both can be bought together with some sort of Deal, Please PM if interested in both or only one. General Comments/Questions below. (Dont forget I'm also paying for Free Posting and Tracking, if that works) Plz keep it Civilized guys. Cheers!

    Ready Player One

    Has anyone else read this? It is a wonderful book if you haven't and I HIGHLY recomend it. A great read- especially for old school gamers as the entire book is filled with 80's and 90's video game and movie trivia. Obviously written by "one of us"... What is funny (without spoiling the book) is that the Robert's vision and how this is playing out is almost exactly like the premise book. A game that is meant to be completely immersive, and takes place in a huge space sim enviorment. Made to be free (after a small initial purchase) and you can really do almost anything you want. Even the citizenship role plays in there and alot more. An exteremely interesting read, especially if you are a fan of space sim/ MMO/ MMORPGs or even just games in general. -Yoshi Here's a link to the books site if anyone is interested. http://www.readyplayerone.com/
