News Comments > Planet Coaster Licensed Content DLC
3. Re: Planet Coaster Licensed Content DLC Jul 22, 2017, 01:58 eRe4s3r
 
This seems.. a really odd DLC for a Coaster simulation that still doesn't have a third of the coasters nor a 10th of the rides of RTC3...

Basically 3 times card rides with different skins, and nothing adding to the basic construction sets so we can actually design proper park around these themes.. meh!

Yeah, more like the Pipedream Loop. Is there some reason he couldn't just do a high speed bullet train like the rest of the planet? It may not be a hyperloop but it would still be a huge benefit.


Eh, in essence the cost of construction would be reasonably comparable, so if you're going to build something, might as well go for the best available option.

The problem is of course that it isn't available. The technology doesn't work yet.

Hey, Elon is just talking his share price up, because investors apparently really ARE that fucking dumb. (seriously, why is Tesla valued higher than Ford or GM? That's just fucking nuts.)

Because a company that focuses on automated self-driving electric/hybrid cars, one on vacuum tube trains, and one on space travel.... well, guess what a company selection like that is needed for.

Hint: off-world colonies

I've already received a warning from my ISP last year when I went to download a episode of GoT for my mother since she can't stay up that late to watch it on HBO. Thought it was bullshit then I checked the header and found it was pretty darn legit.

Considering this is the first time we get a male voice option, can I just say that THAT is what truly sexist here? Give me Vin Diesel over squeaky high pitched female voice-that-sounds-like-a-robot options any day of the week!

Bixby hopefully ships in German at some point ;p
Ps.: German voice of Vin Diesel is Markus Ke▀ler, he also voices Nicoloas Cage, and he seriously sounds more awesome than Nicolas Cage... though nothing beats the original Vin Diesel

Has there not been a male voice for Siri in German? I'm pretty sure we've had an English male Siri for a while.

yeah, that's the same voice we have for German, and it sounds exactly as you envision it. An english dude trying to pronounce German words, 100% wrongly, all the time.

Which is why I always laugh when SIRI comes up anywhere, great assistant, IN ENGLISH. Horrible nightmares guaranteed in German. Wonder if that changed or is still this way (Haven't checked anything related to Apple for a few years)

Males are rejoicing everywhere after shattering this once thought impossibly high glass ceiling, true equality has finally been reached.

I don't need true equality, I just need a voice option that sounds like melting hot chocolate tastes

Just a wee way into Doom love it, love the maps, beautiful.
Only having set it up all pretty I feel a need for the flashlight from the last doom, which btw I liked, in order to look around before exiting a room.
And don't shout such sacrilege as "turn your gamma up" ... philistines.

Seriously, turn your gamma up ^^ You won't be finding half the secrets otherwise...

I kind of doubt the T-Rex would have been a successful predator if it couldn't move above a slow walk. DO they think it perched in trees and jumped down on unsuspecting prey? Or hid in the bushes until something just walked into its jaws?

If the T-Rex couldn't run, I doubt the brachiosaurs and the other giant grazers could either, in the past it was just assumed that they did like they assumed the T-Rex did.

It is also possible that the T-Rex wasn't a predator after all, but a scavenger, eating already dead animals killed by other, more nimble carnivores. Its quite easy to imagine a T-Rex stumbling upon a corpse being eaten by raptor-like dinosaurs, scaring the latters away to claim the corpse as his own, or simply sharing it, profiting from the smaller dinosaurs successfull hunt.

unlikely he was just, or even primarily, a scavenger. carnivorous size highly correlates with predation. think of all the big meat eaters on earth today - they're the biggest and the meanest for a reason - they get first dibs. a scavenger wouldn't need the size and probably wouldn't get enough food to support it.

trex needed that bulk to kill bulky things; no other reason.

No meat eater today is larger than an elephant, and nothing on this planet is larger than a steppe mammoth aside from wales. (which don't count due to only eating plankton, which can hardly be called "predation" ) And Mammoths were herbivores, with the occasional small bite of meat.

If the hunting grounds of a T-REX were filled to the brim with enormous sized, dumb, slow moving herbivores then it could have still been possible that it was hunting though. If something was larger than a T-REX, then it was probably also much slower.

This is nearly as bad as Obsidian unleashing 2+ GB patches for minor Pillars of Eternity fixes.

Omg.. and I thought I was the only one pissed off about this (related to PoE) I uninstalled Doom months ago, SSD space is precious

Yeah everyone is real surprised by the WH approval on that. /s

Oh really? So why isn't AirBnB being held to that standard. Seems to me anyone renting a "hotel" room should have to comply with every country's disability act to enure equal access. I'd actually love to see that and kill that bullshit company off.

It's rare but in this case I agree... if it applies to Uber and Taxis then it applies to AirBnB and hotels.. it's just fair

And I wouldn't cry a single tear if those 2 companies died....

But yeah, only when all episodes are released... seriously hate this piece-meal episodic stuff.

I don't think any high intelligence would put "mass genocide" on it's to-do list... at least not intentionally and unprovoked. So there is that.
Actually, this is part of the problem. There is no reason to believe any created intelligence would share our values. Unless we somehow manage to integrate them, which when you actually think about it, isn't an easy thing to do. So, if you suddenly have something which thinks much faster than you, but has no morals or sense of right and wrong.... well, the problems are obvious.

Right, and as Asimov is always so fond of pointing out (60 years ago!), the AI can always interpret specific prime directives thinking it's doing the right thing when it's in fact causing harm.

Only when the prime directives are a logical paradox, and we know already which 3 prime directives NOT to use

In another article I read, it said the herbivore contepmoraries of TRex like diplodocus and triceratops were slower than 12 mph.

Makes perfect sense too, they didn't have roads to walk on after all. For most of the big ones, rain+mud was probably a mortal danger.

The Sheeran thing was so pointless and distracting. I watch fantasy to get an escape from reality, not see pointless cameos that break suspension of disbelief. At least in the past when they've cast musical artists there's been some attempt to costume them nearly to the point that I can barely notice. The rumor is that he was the actresses favorite artist or something so I guess he totally deserves to be there instead of an actual actor. Just get her something signed or introduce them, don't inflict it on everyone else.

Game of Thrones is so consistently high quality that something like this is pretty glaring which is why people went nuts online about it. Oh well, its all going to be over soon enough. I'm pretty happy with the direction the show has taken overall.

I didn't know who he was and the scene worked for me... and aside that, I actually listened to the song and instantly recognized it, it was a HUGE nod towards the book reading audience... and they are for sure not complaining who was cast for that singer role. ^^

Hmm, this list shows a bunch. And there are mods, of course.

That's a list bringing back a lot of bad memories... there is a pretty interesting looking board game coming though
