Re: So what are the "trendy" places now to discuss sims?

When it comes DCS, the two major places to discuss it are on the Eagle Dynamics forum and Hoggit, a Reddit community. In some ways, Hoggit is better than the ED forums. ED is known for censoring posts and banning users for complaining or even raising valid concerns. But, at times, I have found Hoggi...

Re: Cyberpunk 2077 on SAle

Now out on Steam for 29.99, if you prefer. Are there any DLC's out for this game yet? I usually wait until I get a game for ten buck or less, and I typically prefer to by the deluxe editions of games so that I get the original game and all the DLC's at once. That way, I don't have to spend my time h...

Re: AV-8B cockpit build

That’s amazing. Must’ve been expensive to get the real padding? Why get an electric motor to raise or lower the seat? Just for authenticity’s sake?

Re: AV-8B cockpit build

Ah, okay, that's fair then. It just struck me as odd since the seat since in a jet designed to pull high G's, ergo the seat is get tossed around a lot and put under a goodly amount of stress. Yes, I was aware about the risk factors of actually having to eject, although my understanding was that the ...

Re: AV-8B cockpit build

I'm @ 3:41 in the video Trichome posted and I had to pause because I'm scoffing at the notion that it is THAT dangerous to remove the ejection seat; seems like more reality TV drama, no? I mean, look, I'm not saying working on the ejection seat isn't dangerous, of course it is. It's a seat with rock...

Re: AV-8B cockpit build

Nothing in mind will ever top the guy who took a full, real MiG-21 and converted it into a sim pit. Close second is a guy who built an A-10 sim using a dome-like screen. Check YouTube out for the vids of either simpit. Pretty outstanding.

Re: New game options for Monday or Tuesday nights

I will also try to be on for 8:30. Had a great time. Pretty smooth entry, quick entry into rooms but as the #1 going in I found myself getting shot because I was moving so quick. I think next time we can work on synchronizing our entries into rooms, perhaps from different doors if the room has more ...

Re: My Dune review

I was being facetious. I recognize that some people may have more particular tastes. Personally, I pretty much watch mostly everything scifi I can get my hands on unless it's so horribly written it isn't worth my time.

Don't laugh. There's actually an backcountry legend about a guy who put balloons in his backpack. Why? I have no idea.

Re: New game options for Monday or Tuesday nights

To make the game more tactical, we can buddy up, assign responsibilities for different sight lines upon entering a room or defending a room. We break up into partners and elements. Run N' Gun is an option but is typically a good way to get yourself killed and overly simplifies the sim, taking away f...

That's weird. Yeah we all should be able to create a game. Panzer, Jedi, me. Maybe you have to do some training? I'll check now to see if I can create a game. Although you probably don't want me hosting. For some reason people tend to find my connection laggy. EDIT: Just checked and I can create a g...

2 large on a rifle, Trichome? Wow. You hunt? I'm in the process of downsizing my Backpacking gear because, well, we have so much of it that the house is nearly bursting. And, I just dropped about a grand on new gear to replace the gear I'm getting rid of. LOL. Anyway, I'm excited about this project....

Re: New game options for Monday or Tuesday nights

Okay so it seems we're going to try playing Siege on Tuesday nights. I'm going to update my install today and be ready to play. See you guys around 8:30-9 EDT? If I can get on at 8, then I'll log on.

What kind of scifi a person watches? I watch all of it. I'm sure I'll love the new Dune. Have heard great things. But, I'll have to wait until it hits stream. Won't go into a theater to watch it right now, unfortunately. Upside is that I will be watching on my "big enough" tv screen with s...

Hey Falker, I didn't see this until now or I would've replied to tell you I have no idea how to help. At least that way you'd know someone saw your post.
