And, amongst other things, the Wargaming shitshow just keeps on rolling.
Careful Jingles. Don’t show the normies your power level.
Does it really matter? I mean we know at least one thing, it is OVER 9000!
I for one would like to thank him for bringing to light that tragic incident where US Navy F 14 Tomcats bombed Switzerland for being too neutral despite having a “plus” on their flag.
@Arkadeep Kundu I hate these filthy Neutrals, Kif. With enemies you know where they stand but with Neutrals, who knows? It sickens me.
@Sir Osis of Liver I have no strong feeling one way or the other
New Torpedo bug!!! 0~o Has the US Navy’s Bureau of Ordnance been up to their usual shenanigan’s again???? >~<
and Japanese too… and everyone else’s for that matter.
The return of the Mk13!
I beat someone will try and use the bug to hit ship outside their normal launch paramenters.
@Capt Bumbler I already did. Sunk the bastard, too.
Yes! This is exactly like the Mechwarrior Online aiming bug waaaay back in the Founders days. For a couple weeks, shots deviated toward a compass direction, I think it was North, to the point where if you were facing south your lasers would hit almost 100 meters left or right of your point of aim. If you were facing East or West the deviation was smaller. I wonder what’s actually going on here.
Honestly of the two torpedo bugs I prefer the old one. At least that one was predictable and easy to understand and compensate for.
“Arma 3” Starting wars since stupid people believed everything anyone in authority said.
Well its as reasonable as any other trumped up war justification throughout history…
Lol, I mean didn’t the devs get arrested by the Greeks when trying to get reference material for the map Altis (Based on the Greek Island of Limnos IIRC)
@Moritami Kamikara you’d be correct.
Gnei was one of the most hard-working, dedicated, centered, caring, and also very kind person (something rare on Wargaming) that was thrown under the bus twice! First to cover the arse of possibly Ev1n during the first days of the Yukon debacle and finally, he was used as the ultimate sacrifice for the blood-thirsty russian overlords. Adding salt to the wound, he was my former ST mentor.
That is the problem men… he does not have the “minimum requirements” to work at the company!
for those who play wot, lets paint mauschen (little mouse) WHITE just to make statement: remember LWM!
Putt’s Law: “Technology is dominated by two types of people, those who understand what they do not manage and those who manage what they do not understand.”
Putt’s Corollary: “Every technical hierarchy, in time, develops a competence inversion.” with incompetence being “flushed out of the lower levels” of a technocratic hierarchy, ensuring that technically competent people remain directly in charge of the actual technology while those without technical competence move into management.
Compare this to the “peter principle,” thought as more or less “satire”… nowadays more something “like sad but true”
Also compare this to an Interview by Steve Jobs during the 90s where he talked about the downfall of Xerox. Basically, those who are responsible for the success of a product, aka marketing people, get promoted, while those who actually know how to make a good product stay on the lower end or get booted to save money.
arma series being “accidentally” used in news and documentaries this would be the 5th time ive heard it happen; first time was back near the release of arma 2 where it was used as live footage of IRA in a documenty
I’d say the protagonist from Far Cry 2 was pretty good, Also FC3 was only available until the 11th of September
Sequential Bug Chasing… Every coder’s nightmare.
Also: I’m seeing an increase ships leaping out of the water when destroyed. Doesn’t harm gameplay, but it *is* a bit startling.
Nerf, the unlikely company providing means for dedicated nerds to have working props that don’t cost an arm, a leg, and your most functional kidney.
99 little bugs in the code, 99 little bugs in the code. Take one down, patch it around, 117 little bugs in the code.
Excellent! You just made me spit out my coffee LOL.
Cabbage Mechanic definitely deserves respect for that move.
Respect he shall get
Respect is given
Respect was given
MY CABBAGES !
As for colouring etc, look up ‘Firearms Expert Reacts to Aliens Fireteam Elite’s Guns’ on here. The chap from Royal Armouries discusses the firearms in the game vs the films & comics, plus some real world thinking on the designs. He shows off one of the original Pulse Rifles from Aliens that they have in the collection.
Here is a link for you Jingles. Firearms Expert Reacts To Aliens: Fireteam Elite’s Guns https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5YylyfzXYQ
And his Pulse Rifle is painted with Olive Drab.
On colors: In the original Star Trek, Cpt. Kirk’s shirt was green but looked gold on film, so yes that can happen with certain colors. Also, B-17s were painted a dark olive drab that over time faded to purple/brown due to UV exposure at altitude.
It was to do with the fabric they used for the standard shirts under studio lighting. Kirk also had the open front shirt which was the same shade of green, but made of different fabric which still looked green under the studio lighting.
Mighty overlord looking forward to Workshop Wednesdays and what your going to do. I’m not in anyway artistic but love the idea of taking a Hasbro Nerf gun and making into a Aliens Pulse rifle. It would be great to hear before you embark on such a project your conceptual ideas on how you plan to achieve what you want it to look like 🙂 .
When Jingles said “Getiing into that game rekindled….” i thought he was going to say Alien Isolation 😭
Jingles, you CAN tell whether a politician is lying: his mouth is moving and sound is coming out.
Me, following Jingles flight path along on Google Earth: It truly is remarkable how little of Switzerlands Alps he manages to show regarding his overlay at the beginning. Please never change, let me enjoy finding discrepancies like these!
