What speed do you guys play at?

Mostly just max speed, pausing when I need to do something in the game. Sometimes I'll turn it down to the lowest speed when I just want to watch my city in motion.

Wrong game...

I disagree.

Prior to having a SSD I had BF4 or 3 on a standard hard drive.  I would be on a voice chat with a friend who's also playing in the same match and he would be in his game in less than 30 seconds.  For me, it would take close to two minutes before I got in.

Upgraded to a SSD and now I'm in within 30 seconds every time.

Everything is much faster.  It's the biggest improvement on a PC in years. 

Yes, the low capacity is a pain, but as time goes on, it's getting cheaper and they are getting bigger.

Here's my latest city (Rockdale) this map is from the workshop, and it's pretty cool, much more imaginative than the stock game.

Looking from the entrance to my city.  Being that this is the only entrance, I had to seriously deal with traffic coming into the city and exiting.  The farmlands produced a lot of produce trucks and it was clogging up my roads.  I first built two 6 lane roads (3 way each way) and it wasn't enough.  I then decided to change these roads to one way.  So each span was in one direction.  That solved my traffic issues.  (One thing the guy did when making the map was placed the entrance and exit the wrong way so it made it more difficult than needed, thank God for elevated roads)

It's a steam game, but you can buy it from different places, and redeem the key on steam.

I guess my point is that with users giving the ability to create content for free, dlc may not play as an important role, or that the developer will need to release something that is more than what the community can offer.
170  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC]Cities: Skylines on: March 12, 2015, 07:11:31 PM
with steamworkshop being heavily used, I think I'd be fine without DLC unless it features being changed/added

You don't need to mod to do that. You can do it entirely in-game if you like. Here's an example I made, in-game:

Sorry guys, this is not fun to watch a team with recent super bowl potential get dismantled like this. 

Actually it is kind of fun.  Screw the 49ers ownership.

Yeah, you're right.  to hell with the owners.  It's just unfortunate that it affects people here.  I enjoyed the rivalry.  Hopefully things will be good in a few years for both our teams. 

I know my snarky seahawks comments typically generalizes the whole fan base, but you sir, are different.  And you are different from me sadly.  If this was the other way around I'd have a hard time holding back.  I fully admit that.  It's my main fault when it comes to sports.  For me I take football too seriously.  It's the one of the few things I obsess over.  I don't know where I'm going with this, but wanted to say thanks for always showing class

Most North American releases are at 12 midnight.  When that happens, I typically get the game at 9pm the day before the release date.  But because this is a European game they are releasing it based on their time.  Australia has to wait till the 11th...

Hey, I know this forum well. 


Well we tried the natural fingernail polish that had cayenne pepper and citris extract.  He didn't flinch.  Moved on to a nail polish that is used for nail biting and sucking, but it was chemically based.  He could care less, sucked away.

So, we'll just have to wait it out.  Gonna try the reward stuff.  We did that recently for staying in his bed all night and that worked.  Now it's time to try it with thumb sucking.

Didn't that one get bought by GameStop and fade out of existence?

It's on ORIGIN, a system that is just as stable as Steam and gets an unfair reputation.  It's also the only platform that has a refund policy on digital games.  You won't find that on Steam.

And I'm not talking bad on Steam, steam is just as great.

I am likewise following and very interested, but a little cautious, especially after the latest SimCity debacle.

I'm particularly interested in knowing how the simulation, traffic, and difficulty holds up as city size increases. So far, all the comments and Let's Play videos I've seen have dealt with small, starter communities where it's obviously pretty easy for things to go smoothly. If anyone sees anything that talks about the later parts of the game, I'd love a link.

- Ash

The person who did the lets play video I posted had a live twitch feed yesterday and he had a huge city.  He had traffic issues, but was able to improve his road systems to address the problem areas.  The game itself didn't seem so difficult, but he could have been playing with the included cheat mode on that gave him infinite money. 

In the video I posted he said the game was challenging.  So far I haven't seen any challenging aspects, but most of my time viewing was early on in the game where not everything was unlocked.

I preordered, for $21, it was a no brainer
187  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PC]Cities: Skylines on: March 04, 2015, 04:43:10 PM
This game is coming out next week, and yesterday was the day the embargo lifted.  Lots of lets play type videos are now out in the wild, and I must say it looks awesome.

Greenmangaming.com has it for $21 if you are a VIP member.

Check it out.

190  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Thumb sucking on: February 27, 2015, 07:23:46 PM
No, it's not me...

My 5 year old still sucks his thumb.  It's a comfort thing as well as habit.  I know it's bad for the teeth, and in all honesty I wouldn't care so much if he didn't have Cystic Fibrosis.  I'm more worried about the germ factor and the increased risk of getting sick.  That has more of a detrimental effect to his health than worrying about his teeth in my eyes.  When he's sick, it means more treatments, more fights, and missing school more often.

We told him when he turned 5, he has to stop sucking his thumb.  We gave him a weeks notice, and for the first few days, he did stop for the most part.  Occasionally we'd catch him, and when we made him aware of his habit he would take it out without a fight.  A week later he's back at it and says he can't stop.  So there's some options that I've seen.  One of them I like is nail polish.  They make natural ones where uses pepper extracts but I heard they are not as effective.  The other's are chemically based, and my wife doesn't like that option, fearing he'd be ingesting them.  I'm thinking of trying the natural one first and if that doesn't work then move up to the chemical one if needed.

How did you get your kids to stop?

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/horror-scenes-as-destiny-player-deletes-stranger-s/1100-6425419/

Short story, kid invited a stranger via shareplay to take over his controller supposedly to help him pass a level in destiny.  Kid steps away for a minute and comes back to see that the stranger deleted his lvl 31 and 22 character and dismantled a weapon.  You can hear him saying NO NO NO, and then turns off the PS4.  He boots backs in, deletes the guy from his list, goes back into the party he was in and sarcastically tells him "Thanks, I didn't need those characters and weapon" and then leaves.  He then loads up the game and while it's loading you can hear him sobbing. 

I felt so bad for him.  What an ass the stranger is.  And let this be a lesson to not let people you don't know take control. 

It takes place about 13 minutes in.

This thread will be used for off season and the start of this year's football season

Well, we're all on even playing ground now.  As far as my niners are concerned, they rather be bad to mediocre instead of being successful and having to deal with an ultra competitive coach.  There's been reports that ownership told Harbaugh he wouldn't be back next year after the loss to Seattle in December.   So much for "mutal agreement"  Just tells you that Harbaugh was pretty classy when it came to his fate.  He could have easily fought the whole time, make them fire him, take the $5 million he was owed and then get paid again by Michigan.  Just shows you how stupid York is.

As far as the rest of football goes, there needs to be some major changes on player conduct and officiating.  Both were huge distractions and both need to be addressed.

What does your team need to do this offseason?

49ers need to go back to the power run game.  Don't know if that's going to be possible if Gore leaves.  Kap needs to improve with getting the play off in time, reading defenses, and making better decisions.

That last min or so from the Kearse catch on the back to the end.  Just...what happened...head explode.

Ya after that Kearse crazy catch I was like, DAMNIT Not again!  I didn't understand the Patriots strategy after that.  Personally I would have let Lynch score the rushing TD after that, to preserve time. I also wouldn't have kicked the ball out of the endzone at 2:02.  But it didn't matter, the INT saved the day.
