Eh, he would've gotten beaten up if the government sent just about anyone.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:56 AM)

Regardless, literally everything I've ever seen (and a lot on tfwiki) attributes Megatron's slide into violence to Whirl beating him up while in custody. Maybe not like flicking a switch but Megatron's line "You made me. You taught me words were weightless without force" kinda spells it out.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I'm not sure if there even was a specific turning point, but he didn't seem kill happy yet when he was with Terminus, and that was after Whirl beating him up.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 07:24 AM)

It was also before any sort of uprising or him actually doing much of anything.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:20 AM)

I mean, the whole thing didn't start as "the great war". It was an uprising that eventually morphed into a the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 07:17 AM)

Yeah, of course it's before the war, Whirl beating Megatron while he was in custody was the tipping point that made Megatron turn violent.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 February 2017 - 05:12 AM)

But the thing with Whirl was before he started the war.

@  Pennpenn : (22 February 2017 - 03:28 AM)

Like so many awful things in that universe, it's basically Whirl's fault.

@  Telly : (22 February 2017 - 12:51 AM)

for about 10 minutes. then he got all kill happy

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 February 2017 - 10:27 PM)

Wouldn't IDW Megatron kind of count since his main reason for instigating the Great War was to overthrow the Functionist social order?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (18 February 2017 - 08:58 PM)

@  Msol : (18 February 2017 - 07:50 PM)

Yeah Mindwipe shelfwarmed like crazy in Vancouver.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 February 2017 - 07:36 PM)

My Walmart still has a Rattrap floating around. My frustration is I've seen Hot Rod and Doublecross, but still haven't seen a Highbrow

@  ShadowMan024 : (18 February 2017 - 07:02 PM)

I still haven't seen any Wave 3 Deluxes aside from the Triggerhappy I got off eBay.

@  Pennpenn : (18 February 2017 - 06:54 PM)

Fairly sure the Target near my work still has a CW Wheeljack hanging around the Wave 3 TR deluxes. Just wish we'd gotten Wave 2 deluxes...

@  ShadowMan024 : (18 February 2017 - 06:53 PM)

CW deluxes from the later waves clogged the shelves real bad.

@  ShadowMan024 : (18 February 2017 - 06:52 PM)

Correction: TR deluxes don't shelfwarm.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2017 - 06:47 PM)

Generations deluxes don't shelfwarm.

@  Msol : (18 February 2017 - 06:30 PM)

Hm, interesting. Some of the pegs seem to have the correct names when they've been shelfwarming for a while. So like Mindwipe would be on a peg labelled MINDWIPE next to WOLFWIRE, etc.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2017 - 06:30 PM)

It would make less sense to track individual figures when they're ordered by the assortment anyway.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 February 2017 - 03:02 PM)

Nope. walmart tends to scan the first UPC of the assortment, then use it for the entire assortment. Actually tracking data makes to much sense.

@  Msol : (18 February 2017 - 02:37 PM)

So hey I bought Triggerhappy from Walmart a few days ago and just notice the receipt said TRIGGERHAPPY on it. Not the assortment name or whatever. Are they using this info to better track character sales or something?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:52 PM)

OH, that one.

@  Pennpenn : (17 February 2017 - 08:39 PM)

The most recent one, I think? I don't think Fort Max or Trypticon even appear in the earlier ones.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (17 February 2017 - 08:37 PM)

Which one was that?

@  unitremover : (17 February 2017 - 07:16 PM)

They did in the Scioli TF vs GI Joe

Anyone else looking into this? Caught a few recommended videos of it on YouTube & felt like a purchase. Game is currently in early access & not all the features of the game are implemented, and the longer you play the buggier it gets.

(Apparently, the game currently keeps track of all environmental changes in such a way, that as the save games rack up, you almost completely brick your game.)

It's interesting, you ship crashes, and you make it to a life pod, only to be knocked out in planet fall. When you wake up, your pod is damaged & on fire. First task is to grab the fire extinguisher & put out said fire.

The pod you're in has a small locker for storage, a health kit generating device, and a super advanced 3d printer like device. Over the course of the game, you find other life pods, investigate the remains of the Aurora (the ship you were in, once you get proper radiation protective gear), find out the Aurora isn't the first ship to crash, and more. You can also scan things to learn new recipes & learn about creatures (& other things) that you find on the planet.

There's some jump scare like elements with some of the huge sea creatures, but I've been mostly able to avoid them.

I love it a lot when it's working, but I've saved so many times that my game constantly crashes in areas that have too much sea life. Right now, I'm actually stuck at a point where I can't even move 1 meter before crashing. Might have to quit until a proper update, but I really want to make it back to my base. Since I really like some of the layout, and I'd like to see if I could grab pics, so I might be able to reproduce it in the final version.

As for your game, easy fix.

 

Head to your game folder (Steamapps/common/Subnautica), head into your saved game folder and inside ought to be a CellsCache and CompiledOctreesCache folder. Delete both of them. Reboot the game - boom. Enjoy a lag and crash free game.

I'm playing the freedom version of the game, since I've a hard enough time feeding myself in real life.  I'd rather not have to worry about it in this game as well.

From watching Youtubers, the Aurora is home to Prawn parts, and you can repair the engine room to get rid of the radiation

It's not the Blueprint that's the issue...it's assembling the components for it. I'm honestly considering building a second PRAWN myself - one for mining and one for combat/exploration.

 

As I've been detailing in the Random Video Game Image thread, I actually have been constructing my third base to begin exploring the Lost River biome. I've not read a lot into the game, so a lot of this is new.

Beautiful scenery and the only place I've so far found Nickel deposits (What I need Nickel for I don't know), but there's no food or water to be found here.

A bad, bad idea. Even with my grappler arm, there's little chance I'll be able to get back up. I saved here, knowing full well that my jump into the dark would be a death sentence.

Worth jumping down for the view. Ironically, there's food at this level.

 

I found something down here.

Well finally made my PRAWN after tracking down the spore sack & had enough aluminum oxide collected.

Set up an exterior grow bed for additional spore sack so I'll never run out.

Also set up a scanner room & equipped my PRAWN with a drill arm & preassure compensator. As well as upgraded my knife to diamond reinforcement.

Any recommendations for finding silver? Always have a hard time finding it.

Silver is found in Sandstone deposits. Your best bet is the Kelp Forest. I used to hate the Lead drops from Sandstone, but that's a requirement of making Reactor Rods for the Nuclear Reactor, so the huge locker of Lead suddenly becomes your best friend.

You got the Modification Bench, which is more then I've got. The Nuclear Reactor parts can be found in the biome between the Kelp Forest and the Red Sand area. Be careful though - Reapers prowl the area.

I found the modification bench & water filtration at the 2nd Degassi base, which if you can find the entrance isn't too far from your life pod / safe shallows. Just try looking into every cave or crevice that can fit a Seamoth.

Managed to stumble onto it when looking for spore sack

Finally built myself a Cyclops.  I already hate it.  I'm not sure if it's diving, and it handles like a slug swimming in super glue.

 

Also, my upgrade bit seems to be having issues.  It doesn't show me my inventory or the Cyclops upgrade slots at all.  Will check again tomorrow, to see if the bug stays.  Supposedly, I've got the blueprints to make a Cyclops pressure compensator.  However, I'm not sure what device builds it, or I've got some sort of bug that's preventing me from making it.

 

Oh well, tomorrow's another day.

You have to install a fabricator inside the Cyclops to craft some of its items.

I'm not that fond of the Cyclops either, but it does make a decent little mobile base (when it works correctly). I like being able to bring a small garden with me, and sometimes I like to dive deep and shut off all the interior lights. I hope eventually they add the ability to shut the lights off inside the base units as well.

Oh, and I'm not certain Rust, but you might have screwed yourself out of the modification table.  I've noticed that artifacts that you can scan, after the deletion fix, pretty much takes a nose dive.  I've gone back to wrecks that I thought I'd left pretty much untouched (since at the time, I had a very limited oxygen supply), but now they're pretty much barren.

 

If you can't make a better tank, I hope you've at least got 2 tanks & the rebreather (one tank in your papercraft, and one in your inventory).  Sure, you end up with less carrying space, but it can come in handy to have more oxygen.
