News Comments > BUILD2 Engine Released
16. Re: BUILD2 Engine Released Mar 11, 2018, 18:50 YourNick
 
Something that bothered me about the build engine is the inability to look straight up or down, to the point of being able to see behind you. It would appear that build2 still has this limitation

BTW in Quake 1 you can look straight up and down just by changing 2 values in the source code.

I'd like to see those in Doom and Duke source ports.

The ISS uses it as they are all over the map, quite literally!

Would be nice to see UTC used on Bluesnews as well. These posts appear to be stamped with eastern daylight saving time, while just a few days ago they were stamped with eastern standard time I bet. How this time relates to your own local time can be a hassle, let alone memorizing which bulletin boards use what time zone.

Oh yea, during PDT California has the same time as Arizona, so you could travel 600 miles due east and still not change time zone.

Using universal time would make it easy. All clocks should have both universal and local time.

What's so horribly wrong with keeping noontime the time where the Sun is at the highest point in the sky?

Here's a good website to see the sub solar point (point where the Sun is directly overhead) https://rl.se/sub-solar-point

Instead of trying to change time, perhaps jobs should shift worktime hours, say 9am-5pm to 8am-4pm.

That video looks like clips from horror films which have been around for decades. What's new?

"...he's thinking what is the controller going to look like"
Why I prefer PC, use the controller that I want to use, not what they think I want to use.

With machine guns who cares if you aim sucks, shooting a gazillion times a second statistics says you're gonna hit targets.

Ya games are programmed mostly for fun, not simulations about how to kill in real life.

Can probably learn more relevant info from YouTube, like 1000 WW2 soldiers taking on 20,000 Spartan soldiers!

Potential shooters probably learn more from watching news reports about previous shooters, such as getting kids out of classrooms by triggering the alarm system.

They really need to stop with the gimmicks and make useful features instead, such as large wristband smartphones that curve around one's arm.

Ya Dilbert is spot on. If the next model isn't significantly better than the current model, make the current model slower to make it seem significantly better by comparison.

True costs of vehicle operations isn't easy to come by, you have to save all your repair and maintenance bills and average them over many years. Most probably only log fuel costs, if that.

Or business as usual, I don't think Apple ever intended that batteries be replaced, rather the entire phone, more profitable for them that way.

With dual boot bootcamp why bother?

Apple seems to have an aversion to open hardware interfaces as well like USB-C.

I wonder if Enchroma glasses would help in games like Rainbow Six

Enchroma test

Apparently it works by removing overlapping frequencies.

The Sean Connery and Roger Moore Bond films were fun to watch.

No verification of the drone, but yea no reason for evasive maneuvers from a slow moving helicopter.

A headband would be better, might be able to see behind a headrest when driving.
