Never played it, but if reports of galciv 3 being basically galciv 2 are true I have to disagree. I tried es few times but got bored before long. Maybe it's the fact that you have pre designated routes instead of being able to go anywhere. Felt like despite it being space there was less freedom then most 4x games I've played. Also the races in galciv at least have some personality. Too many factions in es are just humans.

Here we go again. Help me understand why a thumbs 'down' is such a bad thing.....

Because much like Cutter's ego, it can be abused.

I've never understood rating posts. It's zero indication of quality and only one that someone else agrees or disagrees with. So you agree with it or not, so what? A poll function would be far more useful.

It was a suggestion, not a demand. Your opinion is one of many. Polling, thumbs up, stars, whatever, just something...

Ok, since obviously we're going to have 'purists' here that don't want anything to change and others that wouldn't mind seeing some things change, I've actually put some thought to this before. (Yes, I was bored) My whole 'gradients' argument was to bring some attention to the fact the site hadn't changed in a while and could use a good 'touch up'. BTW, my gradients post is still up if you have no idea what I'm talking about. I would LOVE to see you guys implement it!

But, anyway, during my thinking exercise about what could be good changes, another friend who operates another site (Matt from TWC Classics) was having a similar dilemma. He's kind of a neat freak with major OCD issues when it comes to changes on the site. First he'll redo it, then put it back, then totally revamp the site...then put it back...it's kind of crazy. He has a huge database of music laid out and was trying to figure a way to best present it to the user, search-wise. After thinking about it, I figured that instead of changing the site for the majority, and leaving out those that want the site a certain way, put everything in the user options and let THEM decide what they want and don't want to see.

This is my main point. There are some here that don't want a change, they use the menus just fine and the site loads fast for them. Fine. If the user wants to have pull-down menus, put an option for it in the settings. If they want the 'old-style' back, put it in the settings as an option. Simple. This way everyone can have the site the way they want. Basically, it's an expansion of your 'new blue' settings on the side now, along with the extended user settings. Throw everything in there, explain what it does and maybe give them the option of previewing it first and everyone is happy!

Oh, and I second the idea for 'thumbs up' or stars or whatever for posts. Maybe not a thumbs down, but we definitely need something like that for good posts...

Also! The email function is definitely still broken. I've tried three times. That needs fixing.

I think the email feature is still bugged...or outright broken. I tried sending something to a fellow user today and never got a BCC (or a reply, but that could be on purpose) so I went and tried to send one to myself just now and nothing... *shrugs*

Haven't seen it posted so I'll say it...

MINECRAFT 1.9 SNAPSHOT 15W31A has been released...

...and it's a fucking mess! What does Mojang do with all of it's time? Seriously, they've had the longest time between two versions of Minecraft ever (1.8x -> 1.9, source: MinecraftWiki) and a lot of things are broken and/or missing. In order to implement the new spawning of another Ender Dragon, you have (and I'm not kidding) make a creeper face out of clay on the ground! WT-ever-loving-F, Mojang?! No melee combat changes ("yet"), no shield ("yet"), and the two hand mechanic is practically outright broken. No new mobs. No new blocks. The big one? Books and signs have been reported to DESTROY your world! (source, 'Searge's Twitter: 'We'll release an updated snapshot tomorrow, until then signs and books will destroy the world after a while. Don't use or have them. Books, signs and tellraw are all broken in the snapshot for the same reason. We found and fixed it, turns out it was too strict JSON parsing') Nice. Good use of your time, Mojang, really...

So it doesn't matter if they give a date and at the same time say that date could change? You only listen to the part about the date and not the part about it possibly (or in some cases likely) changing?
This.

How many of the people complaining here actually backed the Kickstarter? We know Kxmode didn't. We're talking about faux outrage on behalf of the original backers, yet I'm an original backer and still happy with the development.

Dude, I'm an original backer, UEE Citizen Record #30143, Enlisted Oct 9, 2012 and hold a Golden Ticket. That, however, gives me jack shit authority to tell others to stuff it when it comes to their opinions on how this project is going. As seen in this thread and the many others on Blues like it, we all have our own opinions and nothing, absolutely nothing will change that. Agreeing to disagree is your only 'out' here. I suggest you respectfully take it and save it to battle another day...

...your dream of the 'Ultimate Space Game' (that, for some strange reason, revolves around the release of an FPS).

I have issue with that statement (or that part of statement). The game doesn't 'revolve' around the release of an FPS. You're being dramatic. The only reason you're hearing much about it is because of the delay and it's imminent release. If they were fixing to release the Squadron 42 component, that's what you would hear about the most. You're taking things out of context (like I took your comment out of context) and warping it to fit your narrative. Fortunately, you're not speaking to 10 year-olds that wouldn't spot the difference... *looks around*...well, mostly.

Regardless of my personal opinions about this game and it's maker, it's apparent to me after watching these various threads over the last couple years that you guys have a very narrow-minded view of things and tend to focus on certain aspects while ignoring the bigger picture. In truth, all we can do is wait and see what happens. We can sit here and speculate until said shit happens but it won't matter one damn bit. In fact, I get the feeling that some of us here really just like to hear themselves talk (or type, as it were). Thus, from this point on, I'm not going to be jumping into these 100+ comment threads that all ever end up meaning...nothing. At least until such time as said shit has happened and we have something new to talk about that isn't all speculation, rumor and personal opinion.

Wooo, I'll have to get my 'Chris Roberts Special Edition Popcorn Bag' (it's gold-plated and costs $399) for when the Gamescom presentation and the FPS mode is released just to be prepared for the 200+ comments between the ones that think it's a total fucking farce and others that get all googly-eyed whenever Robert's mentions any buzz words like 'free form', 'six degrees of freedom', 'multi-crew', 'persistent universe', 'single player (is dead)', 'this worked earlier' and the always-a-favorite, 'uhhh'... Popcorn Popcorn Popcorn

Can't go by when he created his account. I've been here since the very beginning, registered some years later as Drax, lost my PW or something (I forget) and viola - the present...

The only time I remember the Blue's forum being wholly positive was the early Quake days when we were all still flipping out over OpenGL hardware accelerated graphics.

Hey, I still get excited about OpenGL hardware accelerated graphics! I have three nVidia TNT boards, three S3 ViRGe boards (ugh), two 3DFX Voodoo2/8mb boards Drool , a Rendition V2000-based Diamond Stealth S220 board ("...it even supports trilinear texture filtering"...oh, be still my beating heart! ), and two nVidia Vanta boards (oh god) that I use to play various games from the second-gen 3D Accelerator Era, (from roughly 1997-1998) like QuakeGL and Quake2, Unreal and Unreal2, SIN, Half-Life, Spec Ops, POD, Foresaken, DESCENT2 and 3, FREESPACE 1 and 2 and Jedi Knight 1 and 2. Sure I could play them in virtual environment but it's just not the same as booting up a Pentium2 or 3, or maybe an AMD Thunderbird and playing them natively. You haven't lived until you've played QuakeGL on a Rendition-based board at 1280x720 or Grand Prix Legends using it's Rendition-based mode! One of the best and unique chipsets of the time which was sadly bludgeoned by the behemoth 3dfx. It never got the respect it rightfully earned.


Anyway, about account creation, you can't really go by that at all. Mine says September 10th, 2002, but I've been coming here long before that! Where my original account went? I have no clue. I know I forgot it's password and then abandoned the email address it pointed to, so it's lost. That's after lurking here for nearly two years without commenting at all, just reading the news. Things back then were crazy! The industry was still getting on it's feet, being a geek wasn't 'cool' yet. 'Life-like', 'realistic' graphics meant taking some artistic liberties with the definitions...lol...

I get what you're saying but it's not really a big deal, they're just generalizing between the three main players - Intel, AMD, and nVidia. Granted you're not going to have a fun time using it on an Intel chipset, but I think people know that at this point...at least, I hope they know that...

They could have made it a little more clear though.
