    Used Video Cards. Worth it?

    Right now I have a gtx 1070 with 8gb of video ram. And a 8 core i7. I get around 30 FPS right now. I am sure that number will improve when they actually start optimizing the game. never buy used, components are infamous for their half life.

    Drake Vulture Q&A

    They really need to start nailing their storage questions, because that’s the issue on every ship and they never give a answer that would make me confident in purchasing a ship.

    3.5 on roadmap

    Dissent they say the defender is going to be the style guide? Or did I confuse manufacturers... On the nice side, Jump!

    New Vulture

    I think if you were to do a wolf pack of vultures you would have 3 vultures, a starfarer (or a ship that can do advanced refining of materials and carry supplies for vultures) and a Hull B or C ship to transport final components/resources to the store. The advantage with the reclaimer is that it's a more complete ship. The vulture can cut and hack, but i doubt it can do it as well as an reclaimer on a smaller scale. In the end this enables a smaller amount of ppl to do a job, Vs having a reclaimer and a starfarer to refuel ships and supplies to stay out longer, and a few dog fighters for protection. (because all of the ships in this wolf pack are far more expensive)

    Around the Verse - The Labours of Hercules

    If anything its under priced. it can carry 2 tanks, some supplies or a very heavy loadout. Currently there are not really any ships to compare against.

    Around the Verse - The Labours of Hercules

    Definitely a good looking ship! But I thought it looked like a origin ship from the thumbnail

    The age old question. AMD or Intel.

    I would suggest just buying several and returning what you don’t use.
  12. Maybe add a most recent post tab to the home page? digging the revisions though!

    Around the Verse - A New Origin

    Dang, what do you guys think? Should origin make spaceships this cheap? Does it somewhat soften their market hold on much more expensive ships? I think we we can excuse the 85x as an transport for your 890J...

    Around the Verse - A New Origin

    Can you send over screenshots for us poor ‘regular’ citizens?
  15. Dang the alien tech animations is sick!

    The age old question. AMD or Intel.

    What would you use it for though? Rendering is always faster with a gpu, and most games can’t even use 6 cores....

    Anvil Lance

    Hey everyone! I've been working on another side project, which i am calling the Anvil Lance - a short range ship with a long firing range weapons. Simply attached to the side is a Railgun with an extending barrel, for distance engagement with static/near static targets. I still have things left to do, such as actual rear engines, maneuvering thrusters as well as the interior, but i hope to hear come feedback if y'all interested. First Round: Shown when the UV unwrap was completed: And now the completed first pass, with the barrel retracted: First pass, barrel extended: And a zoom in on the cockpit (incomplete) Hope you injoy, feedback welcomed! T_D

    Anvil Lance

    Hey guys, a bit of an odd request but here it is: As you all know, i've been working on the Anvil Lance and its almost finished! However i need to start working on the commercial and rendering those takes a great amount of time! So if you are interested in helping me out you could add your PC to my "Sheep It" render farm team. Link. How it works is basically you download the client and your PC will start to render frames for the animation. It does slow your PC down however you can stop at any time, I suggest rendering when your not home for example at work. You can check out the Sheep it FAQ if you are unsure what Sheept it is and if its safe to use. (I assure you it totally is!) Thanks to the general team at sheep it i was able to produce the video in the previous post in 6 hours (it would have taken my PC 13 days nonstop otherwise!) If you have any questions just let me know, Thanks! T_D

  21. Methinks the case won't even be heard, it will be dismissed on faulty claims on the part of Crytek.
  22. I own the Thermotake X5 (and its HUGE!) but i really like it, i still have yet to add water cooling so its more like a empty cave on my desk right now :D
  23. And they call it a starter ship?
