I met up with Byrn and Aggro last night for a spot of quad flying on campus. Aggro got pretty good with the Inductrix but sadly Byrn was seeing blurry-vision through the goggles. Aggro was interested in what needed to be got, so here's the list of some tried and tested kit. I've grouped the stuff together. I'm stealing a bit from this great post here. Prices after the link.
homefront the revolution is a game with a lot of flaws but it's frustrating as you can see in it and the systems it offers the glimmer of the game it could have been that game would have been great, but homefront the reviling isn't that game
I'm pretty bad at stealth-based games. They normally end up with a pile of bodies, and mine on top, while various enemies reload their guns in a circle around me. I almost lost patience with Hitman...I was really struggling to get to grips with the mentality behind it, and whenever I looked for help I would come across videos of people doing perfect runs, elegantly slipping through lines of sight, and getting massive scores. I was clearly useless...
So, I keep being stuck out in the wilderness and short of something or other. Sometimes armour. Sometimes I need a furnace and have no cobble. Or a bed. Christ, the number of times I've needed a bed. While playing MC with Felix, I started having a play with an idea for a Survival Help Post (needs a better name). It's a compact thing that I'm going to start sticking on hills. It's quite expensive in terms of iron but we have butt-tonnes of that (even taking rail into account).
So Overwatch is the new big game from Blizzard the first title they've produced that wasn't a wow or starcraft spin off for some huge number of years, too busy counting their piles of money I guess.
It's terrific fun.
I suppose I should qualify that a bit :)
So I was going through my inbox and saw an update from one of the projects I backed the peachy printer a 100 dollar SLA (laser + resin) based 3d printer.
The title "Bad News" didn't bode well for the content of the update but it was far worse than I was expecting.
So thought I would go over some things I've been enjoying of late
Hitman: World of Assassinations
Latest version of the hitman franchise and now episodic with new "episodes" coming monthly which wasn't well communicated as the first time I played it I got to the end of the first playable area the paris fashion show and went "is that it where the hell is the rest of the game?"
I've found it difficult to move around inside Ringwall because there aren't stations where I need them. I'm going to put a new network in but while I am still planning, I thought it might be cool to get your ideas and feedback.
I've updated the rail network diagram to overlay the map.
There has been a spate of incidents where the various news outlets have someone flying a drone (insert stock picture of a dji phantom 2 here) within feet of an aircraft!
Unless they've suddenly stopped making aircraft out of aircraft grade aluminium and decided to start using paper a drone is not going to bring down a jet airliner. If it hits its props will snap and it will plummet out of the sky.
Many, many years ago, Back at Mill Hill School I spent a huge amount of time building 3D objects with a program called Euclid on the Acorn Achimedes. I made citiies you could "fly through" (move the camera) and an American truck. It was where my love of 3D things, be it rendering or building worlds, began. At some point in University (1996ish), once I had my stonking first PC (a Dell Pentium 200Mhz) an old chum Raj furnished me with Lightwave 3D, which he said "They used to make Babylon 5".
