  1. If you missed the announcement earlier today, RSI are having a referral contest. Essentially the more people you refer, the more swag you can score. The dates of the contest are 4/20/2017 to 9/8/2017. Please see the RSI page for more information, including Referral 2017 Leaderboard and list of rewards. I like the pink Dragonfly actually. ------------------------------------------------ Edit: oh and they mention this at the end of ATV also.
  2. I agree the music and your movements were perfect together. I actually forgot this has music on it because I turned that sound off on my computer. Great job Shaw and cool video!
  3. These are on sale 4/21/2017 to 5/1/2017 This ship is intended to defend other ships, such as Merchantman. The Good: Larger shield than other ships of same size 2 person capable (pilot and gunner) but can also be single-person. Each seat ejects independently. Obviously filling the alien technology niche. The Not So Good: Weaker hull than other ships of same size. It looks like a crab. Pricey price tag?
  4. This is a good format. I like this.
  5. The RailCannon looks interesting.
  6. Thanks, Astrus! Yay for
  7. I was reading on the RSI forums in the Concierge tab about other ships people plan to use for mining. The top mentions were: 315p Herald Orion Prospector Reliant Sen Terrapin Considering the amount of money they have spent on ships, I expected a better argument. Research and speculation is an important part of this game at this point. I get that there is going to be a lot of molecularity in the game so some things can be swapped in and out. But folks pointed out they want to have something fast, combat-ready and maneuverable. Well that's dandy but lets not forget Job One of a mining ship would be....mining. Unless their plan is to package up the resources to be picked up by a Hull or Caterpillar or something, then where are they putting that ore? 315P has 6 cargo; Herald zero; Reliant Sen 10; Terrapin zero; this is why the Prospector and the Orion are "the top" ships for mining. And yes currently the Prospector only holds 128 to the Orion's 14040. Personally, I went with the Prospector. The Orion is more of a one-man-army type but the Prospector was cheaper lol.
  8. If you didn't already know, I am a total sucker for hanger bling and electronic decorating. I'm often digging through the Extras bin at the RSI Store to see what I can find. However today I ended up in the Merchandise section and found something totally cool that is of a physical nature. They have a set of Playing Cards & Notepad on sale for $8.00. It comes with a deck of cards, a notepad, a window decal, and what clinched it for me, a pen!!! That pen is going to be displayed proudly at my desk at work!!
  9. Hmm. Well that is unfortunate. There are all sorts of ways to send things. Now you've got me curious. I'll have to check the weight & measurements (when it gets here) and see how much it would actually cost.
  10. Kakon yeah I'm not sure what their plans are for crating the ore. They have put a lot of detail into things so I am guessing that it would just be 50 unit and it magically forms itself into a container. I would think, based on the complex movements of just getting into a ship that there will be something similar type for boxing up ore.
  11. I think these are Storm Troopers. And there's a Yoda in there someplace. Not sure if the carrots are supposed to be light sabers or not. Yummy though!
  12. Yay! Great job!!
  13. Feed Me's "Escape from Electric Mountain" and some Swedish House Mafia. It's techno night.
  14. That would be in Germany, for those of us who are geographically challenged :)
  15. Hmm yes sort of. I mean there's not a lot of people who post there compared to the other RSI site. Yes too bad no signatures but maybe they will add that in the future?
  16. Oh I wondered when they were going to switch. I'm not really sure why they went with the new format.
  17. Zhiv glad to hear you are getting it removed. I know there are risks involved but you can be certain that it is going to cause you pain if you do not do something. I will pray for you and think good thoughts. I wish you a speedy recovery!!
  18. Yeah, Wazzy, I'm also guessing the lasers could go in weapon slots. But if you have no cargo space, not sure what else could be taken off to add that. I think some ships, like a Hornet, maybe the turret could be swapped with a storage container of some sort. I'm assuming you'd need lots of cargo space to make it worthwhile though. I'll stick with my Prospector for now though.
  19. The only thing that made me happier than reading about Twisted's VS victory was doing that myself. It has truly been an amazing weekend for SoW members! I went from this a couple of weeks ago: My link to this on Saturday: My link all thanks to the practice regimen developed by our talented Discord Operations crew. Now on to 0 deaths and conquering Pirate Swarm!
  20. Right? But somebody thought it was a good idea. Herald.....
  21. How did I not notice this before? It is even the same colors.
  22. I have not seen that show myself so I read up on it. That's awesome that the game is making an impact in other areas and it isn't even officially out yet.
  23. Not that they haven't been saying it multiple times since last year but Chris Roberts and Tony Zurovec have re-confirmed during a recent that some version of ship-based mining will be available in the 3.0 update.The whole update is great and covers a variety of topics but forward to the 40:06 mark for the mining. I'm super excited about that as my Plan is to spend a majority of my in-game time mining with the Prospector. It sounds like the mining at 3.0 won't be 100% what they have envisioned for it but at least it will be a start. I'm sure as time permits they will expand it as appropriate.
  24. I am referring to a forum post at RSI by Profit_Hsssssss responded to by ABrown.CIG on March 13, 2017. The question was posed as to whether or not SC may someday run on an operating system other than Windows. The response is that the servers run Linux but that the client currently runs on Windows. It doesn't sound as if it is any sort of priority. I was actually wondering this myself. I was thinking that the servers were probably already Linux (good guess Yva!) and was wondering why it isn't currently available in any flavor other than Windows. Because I occasionally dive head-first into super-nerdom, I have a Mac and a Linux computer in my arsenal. If i were making a game, cross-platform compatibility would be on my list of considerations. But, that it just my opinion. I assume most things are Windows-only not because Windows does it better but because whomever creates it happens to be using Windows. I've read a few blog posts about Vulkan API vs. Microsoft's DirectX and but to me really it sounds like the developer's skill is the limiting factor. I see good points and room for improvement with both methods.
  25. I have had The Weeknd's song "Starboy" stuck in my head for weeks now. (Although I suspect that is Daft Punk's fault. ) I've played it so much I started making up my own SC-themed lyrics for it (I put my changes in red): I'm tryna put you in the worst mood, ah Hull-E cleaner than your church shoes, ah Milli point two just to hurt you, ah Javelin just to tease you, ah None of these toys on lease too, ah Made your whole year in a week too, yeah Main toon out of your league too, ah Side toon out of your league too, ah.
