ZeniMax Online != Bethesda Game Studios

They both fall under the umbrella of ZeniMax Media, but ZeniMax Online was created specifically for ESO and I assume other MMO/Online games had it done well.

Hopefully Bethesda are working on Fallout 4 right now.

Ah... thanks ,) Guess I confused the 2...

As an on-off virtual simmer, I gotta say this is kind of lame. Sure it looks kind of cool, but all the printed gauges, avionics etc. are just distractions and they limit your FOV if you have any kind of serious big screen or projector which most sim pit enthusiasts use.

I kind of feel that the OR might make something like this pointless.

but for OR you need to have the control parts where they are in the VR simulation. And this is impossible to do if you put your joystick on your desk.

In no way am I saying it's practical to eliminate it entirely. I just don't see a problem with people making an effort to reduce the undesirable behavior of the community.

The open letter is asking the community to “take a public stand against it”, so I’m pretty sure that qualifies this open letter as ‘taking a stand’. But I'm curious...what in your mind would qualify as ‘taking a stand’?

You take stand by actions, not by petitions. Signing something online makes absolutely no difference to anyone. As long as SJW media is around this war will not end anyway.

The judge's original July ruling endorsed the US government's position that it should be able to access the world's servers. "It is a question of control, not a question of the location of that information," Preska ruled.

That's both reasonable and rationale. I have to say, I agree with that. Just because MS has something stashed away in another country, they are the ones that are controlling it and they are ultimately a US company subject to US law - in theory at any rate.



Except they are also subject to the laws where the data resides and in this case obeying US law would mean violating European law.

I think using 4mm coroplast/corflute would be the way to go, it would last for ever. (provided you put out your cigarettes on it lol.

Even better would be if it was somehow foldable like a concertina, so you can hide it easily and even take it somewhere if needed.

Car cockpits would be the way to go, I'd imagine the market would be bigger too.
It's the only way I'll own a lambo

Yeah.. someone ought to tell him that the market for car cockpits is like 500000 times larger ;p If it can support wheels, shifter and pedal it might be something I'd have instantly pledged for. This is gonna be vital stuff for VR, since this construction is very light, and so "full body force-feedback" would be way cheaper to realize.


Near the bottom of the KS it shows that one of the future projects could be an F1 cockpit.

But what's the chance for this KS to succeed and that particular cockpit ever being made? I think these guys have a great idea, but it might not be such a hit on KS. Especially as they only have 1 prototype (understandable, but they need at least a car cockpit too)

It's interesting. I just finished Crysis 2. Only one female character, but a particularly strong female character. Well, not that any characters in that game are particularly strong.

And I'm in Max Payne 3 now. Most of the females are basically sex workers or stupid party girls you need to rescue. But it's in Brazil, playing to the noir aspect. Still, that part feels more Rockstar and less Max Payne. Unless a female pops out of the woodwork soon, I don't really have a sense for how far into the game I am.

Yeah, well, it's developers like Rockstar that do "deserve" a militant-feminist beating. Their approach and/or view on women seems to be that of a 16 year-old, with a PS controller in his left hand and his penis in his right. In fact, it's the entire image of Rockstar for me. It's kind of a paradox that their games are so extremely solid nonetheless.

It's Rockstar's right to make sexist games, though they are certainly very good at that... GTA isn't an example I would deny if someone said that is sexist. No female protagonists in ANY rockstar game ever. At least Saints Row has females that kick-ass, not sure that is sexist, but it sure as hell is a lot less sexist than GTA ever was.. at least relating to that I can understand females... it's no fun to always play macho gangstahs, or macho ex-cops

I owned qnap nas for a while.. but once the fan failed I had nothing but trouble, no replacement from QNAP, no service (guarantee had run out) and you know what turned out broke.. no, not the fan! The entire mainboard fan power supply circuit (had a giant black spot, as if something melted)

Never again ;/

This is actually really cool ;p (Ps, that kind of ribbed construction is likely more durable than most cheap tables too) Yes, cardboard can be extremely durable After all, they made car chassis out of that stuff once...

More interesting is if this gets a CAR cockpit kind of setup too, because for VR the correct position of wheel, pedal and shifter is extremely important. And if you ever tried, you know what a huge hassle setting up locations for that is.

Hmm I think this is a good translation:

"So eine (Frau) willst Du als Beispiel für gesunden Menschenverstand nennen?"

Note the diff between "eine Frau" und "diese Art Frau". You're specifying a gender in both, but because the latter allows for other types of women, the gender isn't central info - it's just because she happens to be a woman.

I.e. it's really a "the kind of person who ..." thing and the woman bit is just incidental. A German would write "so jemanden" then, but this is an odd case where colloquial English is more gendered than German (usually it's the other way around). If you actually wrote "This kind of person" in English it would actually have a more inflammatory timbre to it because it has moral overtones ("bad person"). He could have used "someone like that", but I guess it's just not his writing style.

I really don't think it was a play on gender.

Thank you. Mhh, I will take this to heart. It seems I blamed Beamer wrongly. It really makes more sense if you read it as "So eine willst du als Beispiel nennen....?" that certainly doesn't have focus on her gender. I just simply didn't consider that.

Ps.: Very Interesting how our 2 translations differ though, It seems I have been formed by other stylist tones and now always assume that tone in my translations. That is something to keep in mind for the future. Had you not mentioned it, I may never have noticed.

So... sorry Beamer. ;p (Now the world will end)

PPs.: And thanks SHO for taking the time to explain.

You are portraying her as something to make your point, and in doing that you use her sex and work against the opinions she shared on twitter (you yourself said "This is a women you want to cite for common sense?" in order to counter OUR argument.

I realize this is probably going to earn me a "you and Beamer are in cahoots" again, but I really think you just misread the sex/gender part. Writing "This is a (wo)man)" is just a common figure of speech in English and not meant to call out the person's gender. It's just a gender-fitted version of "This is a person". If you wanted to highlight the gender, you'd phrase it "Do you really want to trust a woman on this?" or similar. I mean, come on, if Beamer were guilty of everything he gets accused of in this thread, that would be one epic fuckup since it doesn't fit his supposed agenda in any way.

(I realize the fun factor of the two German guys in the thread debating the finer points of the English tongue.)

So you are saying when he says "This is a women you want to cite for common sense?" he does not play on her gender? To me that sounds like sarcasm (I mean what he wrote) ie "Why would you quote a women that works at *** for your argument, she is a WOMEN and she WORKS there, she not able to show common sense".

I don't mind arguing finer points of language, how else would we learn if not by making mistakes and being made aware of them? It's perfectly possible that this is a problem with my translation of that sentence. How would you translate it?

For me it reads either as this

"Du zitierst diese Frau als Beispiel gesunden Menschverstands?

Or as this

"Du zitierst eine Frau als Beispiel gesunden Menschverstands?

Which is it?

he said "a women" not "this women" So the 2nd translation is what I read. Is that wrong? Is it a common phrase? To say "that women" as in "that person" ? If so then I am really not reading "a women" as "diese Frau" sondern als "eine Frau"

Hope I am not too confusing here ;p

Ps.: If that is indeed a common phrase and I mistranslated it then I would indeed have blamed Beamer for something he couldn't possibly have meant.
