i remember the missile gears malfuctioned a lot. damn thing once shot me in the middle of the night.

Just transformed Unicron probably for the first time since I got him in 03, fun stuff. Still would like a new version but since they just did another release last year I guess we're stuck with that mold.

Yeah, I think that might work on the red one, if I can find a neon enough yellow

How about neon yellow/green? Like on Krok?

I'm thinking of making some figures "G2" with minor paint additions: a little panel lining, probably. What colors in small amounts make you think G2?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 03:22 PM)

Damn. I initially thought of writing "Herzliche Glückwünsche", but I thought that didn't fit because we don't know each other in real life. But I forgot to check for quantity after dropping "Herzliche".

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 December 2017 - 03:14 PM)

It'll be nice when they finally perfect universal translation algorithms

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:43 PM)

In German, you only pluralize "Glückwunsch" when it's several people congratulating someone. As in, "I received everyone's congratulations."

@  Nevermore : (17 December 2017 - 02:42 PM)

That's actually a hypercorrect literal translation that immediately reveals you as a non-native speaker.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 December 2017 - 01:04 PM)

Glückwünsche!

TBH, the use of the word "boudoir" seemed a bit more out of place to me than the humour... has a non-English Terran language ever been established as existing in Star Wars before?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 December 2017 - 01:28 AM)

It's not like it's a big deal anyway. I mean, anything with Aurebesh in it is demonstrably non-canon, because there's no X in Aurebesh so X-Wings wouldn't be called X-Wings, right?

Also, it can't be worse than those awful "sarcastic" jokes in the beginning of AotC that were meant to establish a camaraderie between Anakin and Obi-Wan where it was clear that none existed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2017 - 08:09 PM)

Doesn't sound like something I'll be bothered by; movies have to change at least a little bit with the times

@  Waspinator : (16 December 2017 - 07:59 PM)

Yeah, there was some sarcastic humor that wasn't really present in the classic movies

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 December 2017 - 02:00 PM)

I didn't have a problem with it. But it DOES skew a bit more "modern" in ways the humor of prior films didn't, short maybe Rogue One

I'm staying spoiler-free until I see it tonight, but a number of people seem really angry at the humour in the film

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.
