You know that Patton Oswalt knew he'd made it as an entertainer when people stopped asking him whether he was Pat or Oswald and where was the other one.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 10:20 AM)

He does lots of voice work, but it was young Oswalt in my dream, so I guess it was the King of Queens edition.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I only know about Patton Oswalt from Transformers.

We won because Ellen kept going up the other teams and telling them to not worry about their hair looking silly in their helmets.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:10 AM)

I had a dream I was in a team kick scooter competition and the 3 people on my team were Ellen DeGeneres, Patton Oswalt, and my third grade bus driver.

Ordered a watchmaker pin remover from Amazon.

No, bought the set at a convention.

@  Robowang : (20 October 2017 - 08:14 AM)

That's never good. Buy it from a place that will replace it?

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 04:57 AM)

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

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.
