  1. fun video but not really any substance we "hardcore fans" dont know about.
  2. Hello all, I am looking at upgrading my PC for its next round of hardware, last year was adding 2 new water coolers for my CPU + GPU, and this year is when I ditch DDR3 and upgrade to a new CPU + motherboard. That being said, I would love some advice on the best combo at the best price. Right now I am looking at the I7-9700, however I am wondering if the i7-8700 would work just as well... I currently have an i7-4760k @ 4.0 GHZ, so any upgrade will be a huge boost in performance. I also need a new motherboard, and would love to hear your suggestions on what you like! My workload is ofc games, but I also do large amounts of 3d rendering, which is mostly GPU based nowadays. I am not against going team red, but I would like to hear about anyone's thoughts first.

  3. I have the Logitech G930, which is a wireless headset. One of the rods connecting to the speaker snapped about 6 months ago but the second rod is still holding out just fine. I think I've owned if for two years now. The battery is ok, lasts about 5 hours before it needs recharging. Not the best at sound and the "bass boost" is pathetic. If your the guy with a load of cash and appreciate high quality sound, go Bose. Otherwise TA's advise is good too :D
  4. The Issue I have with most ships is that their play-sets are not fully developed, or the ships themselves are not fully baked. (Begin rant) Such as: Connie - Great if you have a friend to do...? low storage, too slow & weak for a real dogfight, and there are better explorer ships out or make a fleet with the same cost as a connie. Mercury Star-runner - (My ship) Does a little of everything, but the only ship to have a dedicated "hidden cargo compartment". This actually boils my blood a good bit, why make a "feature" that only ONE ship in the entire game has? Isn't there a ship line called pirates... err Drake? Its like if you were an customs inspector you would let everyone in except the mercury in because OF COURSE everyone would have that closet filled with something! (sarcasm in full effect) Its nice that they are adding this feature, but If your telling me that they will now go and fix every other ship to have hidden spots... I don't know. Maybe if development takes another 5 years... But I do like the Mercury since its better than... The Terrapin! (my last ship) a small ship that costs $100 more than its worth. 1. Its a small ship that costs $220. You can get a level 2 Connie for $5 more! or 2 cutlass with some change to spare! and don't tell me that it can out fight or out smart more than 1 ship at a time lol 2. No cargo space other than carry-on. Again you payed how much? 3. One bed FOR A CREW OF TWO! (I don't think there are any other ships that break this rule!) how much $$$? 4. While the radar feature is not finished ofc. this is not an exploring ship. Its an fleet scout ship and I think there was some degree of bad advertising which lead me to believe it was. Sure the terrapin might just wow us when the features go live. But I doubt it. The Freelancer has a larger radar btw. And beds. And storage to hold an extra radar or two for you. The Hawk. Its a cool looking ship, but I don't think its very good for actual bounty workers. Get an Avenger instead, thats a real bounty vessel. (Features pending ofc) Any ship with a cargo ramp that cannot carry a ground vehicle. To me its real simple. If you need a CARGO ramp to move supplies then it should be able to carry a car. And the ground vehicles so far are not that large. (End of rant) That all being said! SQ42!!!!! It just might happen in our lifetimes!
  5. As always, I’ll take any 600i or 890 jump donations to the poor mans T_D fund any day :D
  6. I am actually thinking about the carrack. It’s such a large ship and if I trade everything for it it will only cost me $75
  7. Good point. I wonder if RSI ever deletes inactive accounts?
  8. No the average should be $100+- 200M / 2M players = 100.00
  9. Its all good with large ships unless you need to travel through a star system to get to the next jump. Then I would say go ahead and make the trip as long as possible in warp, and give me the maneuvering speed to deal with pirates, obstacles or needed pit-stops. I guess its wormholes that have the fancy maneuvering inside the hole? Then you could really use a smaller ship. And I am assuming the warps done in that spreadsheet started and ended in the same place.
  10. I just thought I would drop this, I’ve been seeing SSD’s down to as low as $130 for a terabyte ssd!
  11. Yep, $60 game for free. My friends who payed full price as mad lol
  12. Hey everyone, SC sent me an email saying that I get a first crack at the Kraken! Now I don't know if I get one for free or if i just get a purchase ticket, (if you know let me know!) If I do have to pay, I am willing to purchase it for someone else if they don't get a ticket. (to be repaid by ship trade or cash trade) I just wanted to make sure that TA members can get as many chances for the ship as possible. Thanks! T_D (btw some ppl have seen me on TS as The_Mobile_Director, thats me! I used to be the media director around here before that was hibernated till the game goes live)
  13. I personally send my PC to every SpaceX launch, expose the components to the vacuum of space (its very cold up there) and then during reentry it will connect to the nearest satellite and I will get +15 FPS for about 5 minutes. just kidding. It’s just +5 fps. I just let my PC act like a space heater. I get around 110f when playing star citizen.
  14. All the goals were for was to A. list the ideas they wanted to do, and B. motivate you to spend more money. They are not listed in order of importance ( or else we would be playing the 1st 5 missions of SQ42 right now) and the cost of each goal is not accurate. 1 million for a ship? but a mere 100K for a whole planet? And we can all agree that there has been feature creep beyond the original goal list. While I love the new hair as shown on the 2018 citizencon, if it was hair or SQ42 released 6 months early...
  15. Next question, are the new planet(s) open?
  16. Hey I can't seem to get into the universe... in the lobby i can click the button but nothing happens.... Help! In free flight (buttery smooth FPS!) I can't seem to change my main ship. Just launched the launcher in admin mode, Ill see if that works. It did not. Help1

    Trigger warning, I am a LEGO purist, the heck is in the cockpit?
  18. lol more like 16gb just for the game and another 2-4 for your OS and background programs.
  19. In case anyone doesn't know, I love Planetary Annihilation - Titans

  20. Good video, kept thinking the guy was going to crack and say a joke or something though lol
  21. Interesting, wonder if they have any new games planned, or if this is just a merger for the time being.
  22. Just saw Nutty on the forums 0_o
