So if 40 players is just too much for you then you can play in games with 20 players on special maps. (smaller) They seem to be going in the wrong direction.

I'd heard someone suggest these were not tiny recreational drones, these might have been heavy duty commercial drones that a news station might put up there.

It seems to make a lot of sense that we'll see drones replace traffic helicopters in the near future. It can't be more expensive to operate a drone versus a helicopter. Keeping the airspace organized and safe will be a real challenge though...

Are there any regulations that limit remote control helicopter ranges and size? The smaller drones don't seem a lot different than remote control helicopters, the mounted camera could be on a helo pretty easy but remote control planes and helo's seem to very a very short range in most cases.

I wonder if that is regulated or if there just hasn't been a demand to go further until now.

It annoys me that these guys keep making DLC for CoH2. I want them to make something else. Somethink I like and want to spend money on. Like Dawn of War 3. Or Space Marine 2. Or anything but CoH.

Was hoping sprint offered a Wifi Router that you can hook up to their Service and use the unlimited plan. Sadly no. If you want to use something with Ethernet ports like that or even just a wifi hotspot device you can only buy limited planes. $110 for 30GB I think is the largest chunk.

My internet service, 3mb/s DSL via ATT, is so frustratingly slow I'm tempted to buy a sprint phone with an unlimited plan and turn the wifi hotspot feature on.

We were using a verizon Wifi Hotspot provided by my wife's employer for a few months because somehow it'd been setup as an unlimited plan. That was fantastic! 70-80mb/s download speeds. Then someone figured out it wasn't supposed to be unlimited and shut it off. And the bill was something like $2500 for 300 gb of data. Now it's a 1gb / month plan...

Would be nice if one of these cell carriers started offering a real data solution for dedicated home networks. All this high priced metered internet is bullshit.

I'd love it if that ATT merger they talked about ended up laying fiber to my house but since I'm already at the outskirts of DSL territory and can only get 3mbs I don't see them spending the money to run fiber to me... Grumble grumble.

Anyone playing this game a lot. I tried playing a few times thus week and it seems like there us only a dozen people playing it. The combat is ok but progression on those starting ships isn't any fun. In particular the upgrades you can choose seem to be mostly cosmetic? The game play feels repetitive and too simple.

Does it get better when u get into ships in the tech tree? Nit impressed with the starter ships.

It doesn't feel like the fans of the game are upset at this point. This feels like the people outside have concluded that now is the time they should be showing results and so if things are still in development then that is a big problem.

Thank you for your concern. We'll see what ends up coming out eventually.

Star Citizen 'may' come out next month just like I 'may' win the lottery. I'd bet on the latter.

I'll take your money, I mean bet! I'll take that bet!

P52 is in game! New update pushed out for the AC side of things 2 nights ago. P52 is one sexy ass ship!

Looking forward to trying it but on vacation now. Hopefully they'll get the FPS thing out one day. I'm more interested in Multi crew but I wonder if that isn't stuck behind the FPS because I don't see how they can offer the multi crew experience without being able to offer a FPS experience in general...and then I have no idea how they go from that to offering a FPS experience inside a space ship that is flying around...

Movie Nightcrawler is exactly about this, wouldn't be surprised if the guy did this after watching the movie, like Twister got people chasing tornado's.

This doesn't sound like the same thing. The title seems to suggest the guy in trouble was also in a car and just sat there while the kid died. The video and the details of the crash make it more likely that he's one of the home owners and you can hear people telling the driver to stay put and help is on the way. There appear to be people on both sides of the car and the camera man actually points out there is a fire so it's not at all accurate to say that no one was helping the driver or that the camera man wasn't helping enough.

If you're a home owner on this street and some asshole flys over some railroad tracks and slams into your house in the middle of hte night I don't think it's unreasonable to film the accident and not give two shits if the driver survives. Fuck him. My kids sleep inside my house and so do I. We're all lucky he didn't kill anyone else.

This happened near me a few months back. Makes me fucking furious because that woman and kid had no fucking chance. The only good thing about the deceased driver in the video was that he did this late at night (or early in the morning) so no one was outside for him to hit before he slammed into the house. Fuck him.

From what I've gathered it works ok on the 900 series cards so upgrading is a possible "fix". Don't try SLI though, just go single card. Beyond that I think all you can do is wait.

The Asus 970 strix card is the one I'm using and the game runs fine.

I'm tempted to buy it and try it. Steam refunds makes that a pretty safe thing to do but I think I'll just watch it on Twitch once that stream shows up to watch. I guess I missed it this morning, it's not there currently.

If they'd offered a protoss Hero for use in Hearthstone, one of the $10 cosmetic ones, I'd have a real hard time not buying this.

Lucky for me they only offer an exclusive card back.

Hunh, that Uber lawsuit is a strange issue.

I'm not sure why Uber would be responsible in this situation but a company like facebook wouldn't be? Uber obviously is a service provided by drivers so a driver might be using the app while driving a vehicle...but what does facebook do to insure people are not using their app while driving? You could argue that by building a mobile app you're encouraging people to use it on the phone...which might be used in a car...which is illegal as the driver.

Is a mobile app dev responsible if a driver can use the app while driving?

What about Google Maps.... I use that all the fucking time. I use that while driving in many cases. It's possible I could hit someone while I'm trying to get directions... or just trying to follow the directions while it's mounted in it's stand... Is Google responsible?

It's tough to think that the CEO was the only asshole inside that company. There has to be a very divided base of people inside the company currently because publically they got their ass kicked for trying to put the PC police at the front door. They'd only do that in the first place if alot of people bought into all the insanity of SJW's in the first place.

Seems like this might feed the flames but if it closes the door on that drama then fine.

I think they should have simply ignored him bug he was pimping his game so it's not like this is unprecedented. There was some drama about wingman in chat talking about the decsent kickstarter. (Wingman was a weekly show host and Dev that left a year ago) then he launched a descent kickstarter.

OMG where do I preorder!?

That's the first time I've ever seen a publisher publicly fire a developer like that. Maybe they quit but who cares. The franchise and that developer are fucked.

He's not being to subtle about it either. You could turn it into a drinking game - for every embedded link and/or reference in his missives to his products, drink. I'd say drink twice for every straw man, argument from authority, or begging the question, but even with wine coolers you'd go blind.

The Icing on the cake here is that his pledge package, assuming it's the Connie plus all the physical extras, would likely sell for a lot more if he just traded it to someone on the star ships trading subbreddit.

r/Starcitizen_trades

LOL, the package that cost $250 at the start was the Rear Admiral with LTI. (Life time insurance) The link above is listing that package for sale and $500! And he'll probably get close to that number. Price checks I found over past week seem to say you should get $400-$500 for that package.

Derek Smart LOST money on the refund!
