where's GALVATRON in MP form dammit?! he didn't even get in for the anniversary year...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 May 2017 - 11:35 AM)

I'm still waiting on the rest of the Dinobots.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:24 AM)

The Decepticon MP cassettes are probably my favorite MP figures so far. Fantastic little dudes.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 11:23 AM)

I want a Masterpiece Blaster if only because I'm fond of the Masterpiece cassettes and want Takara to make more. They should also do Slugfest and Overkill since they were in the cartoon too, even if it was only very briefly.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:21 AM)

I just want the Chip figure. The only Autobot cars I have or want are G2 Sideswipe and Hot Rod.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:14 AM)

another Autobot car. "yaaaaaay."

@  Benbot : (22 May 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I haven't been this excited about a new MP since the Datsuns! He looks amazing

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:01 AM)

I love the little human figures with the MP line. Is it just young Spike, Future Spike, and Daniel so far?

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:00 AM)

And it comes with Chip Chase! I will order just for that! Holy crap!

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 08:37 AM)

anyone remember "Chex Quest?"

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:13 AM)

I never played those. I had, like, two-color bootleg files of Donkey Kong and stuff like that with 50 games on a disk.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:11 AM)

not pure text games, but you still had to use text input to do stuff. "PICK UP flask", etc

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:05 AM)

I think those were the old King's Quest/Space Quest ones

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:02 AM)

I remember floppy disk games! Never gamed enough to own one that was more than a disk, though.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:01 AM)

I remember booting things from DOS, and games that were like 10 floppy disks big.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2017 - 01:00 AM)

ugh, RealMedia was pretty awful. RealPlayer was so bloated and buggy, I tried to avoid it

@  siccoyote : (22 May 2017 - 12:17 AM)

I remember downloading Realmedia episodes of Beast Wars Season 3, days after they were shown in Americ, but the quality was terrible and the guy who did it wasted half of a stereo audio track because he recorded it in mono. Took many hours to download

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 May 2017 - 09:55 PM)

Yeah, I remember those days. I had a bunch of Quicktime clips from Beasties/Beast Wars and Reboot, most of which I had to leave the computer on overnight to get, lol

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 May 2017 - 09:49 PM)

@  Telly : (21 May 2017 - 08:55 PM)

@  Pennpenn : (20 May 2017 - 04:27 AM)

I just remembered, I wonder if the scene in Thor 2 with the kids showing the abandoned building with glitchy reality was inspired by the Animatrix short that had the same concept (but could handle it more interestingly)

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 May 2017 - 03:26 AM)

I think there was an early draft where the machines were using humans as processors with the whole "only use 10% of their brains" bull.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 May 2017 - 11:35 PM)

Wasn't there an early draft where they weren't using humans for that?

@  Pennpenn : (19 May 2017 - 10:26 PM)

Yeah, makes the Matrix seem more like a nature reserve than a source of power, and I get the feeling the whole "humans as a source of power" was done pretty much to justify the machines keeping humans around at all without making the machines seem sympathetic.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:23 PM)

But after watching The Second Renaissance, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the machines still felt some lingering moral imperative to allow the human survivors of the war some kind of life rather than committing genocide. They did everything in their power to avoid the war in the first place

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:21 PM)

It seems like reverting to solar power would be infinitely preferable to having to maintain The Matrix and everyone hooked into it, and all the associated hardware

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:18 PM)

Although I think I remember hearing somewhere that the "clouds" darkening the sky are actually swarms of constantly-muliplying nanomachines? No idea if that's canon or not, but if it is it seems like that'd be something the machines themselves could figure out how to undo if they really wanted to

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:16 PM)

I dunno, for all their technical achievements those humans seemed just as shortsighted as in the present. And they were desperate by the time that was done, so it wouldn't surprise me if they just thought "ah, we'll figure out how to undo it later"

@  Pennpenn : (19 May 2017 - 10:00 PM)

Also gotta wonder if the humans had some idea of how they were going to fix the sky, presuming they won out, because otherwise they were basically commiting suicide out of spite and the Matrix would be the only reason humanity is still alive.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 09:07 PM)

One of the first things I thought myself after my first time through it

@  Pennpenn : (19 May 2017 - 08:58 PM)

Every time I watch "The Second Renaissance" I get the feeling I'd probably end up getting shot for being a machine sympathizer.

@  Noideaforaname : (18 May 2017 - 10:36 PM)

Yeah, Ghostbusters. Specifically the episode where they check out the live action Hollywood "adaptation."

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.

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.
