Thread: PC Gaming. Does anybody here play?

  1. Default

    Microsoft FSX flight sim, I not only play I write packs for it...nothing too technical, I'm a novice at that; mainly aircraft skins. Livery schemes for various airlines.
    Designed a patch for the livery of an Ameriflight Beech 1900D as an example. An exact match of what I actually flew when I worked for them right down to the tail number.
    Trying to branch out into scenery packs and design one for Spirit Airport around where I live...houses, baseball fields...you name it. I want it as detailed as I can get it, based on an actual aerial photo-recon I did.

    Uploaded to make available as free downloads for whoever uses the sim...the AVSIM community is great about that.

    AVSIMS is all I play anymore....last game I played was CoD World at War for PC...which was in my estimation the best game of the series, set in WW2.

    That's really cool. I used to play flight sims when I was younger. Microsoft Flight Simulator was always the one I wanted, but it was expensive and I never seemed to have a computer to run it. That, and it was just too technical for me as a kid. I got the desire to play it at an airshow I went to. One of the tents had a computer with a real airplane HUD complete with joystick, rudders, and other little controls.

    I've been wondering how that genre has been lately. I never see any new flight sim games that aren't the world war II ones. I used to play F117 Stealth Fighter and F15 Strike Eagle III, which were both set in Iraq. Loved how you could customize your ordinance in F15, and of course I was a kid so I used the unlimited ammo cheat and would fly around Baghdad bombing stuff and shooting down Russian planes.
    I may be on the side of the angels...but don't think for one second that I am one of them.

    If you voted for Trump or Clinton, you don't get to complain about government corruption, dishonesty, and unethical behavior. You just voted for it.

    Republicans, be glad that when Trump was deciding which party would take him that yours was the most desperate. He could have easily ended up a Democrat and you would have had to suck it up and vote for a D to get your "anti-establishment" "uprising".

    The only one I play atm is World of Warcraft.

    I've done all the Elder Scrolls games but haven't been able to get into the last one.

    Aced Diablo I and II, just couldn't get into III.

    Everquest, back when it was cool.

    I remember the old 2d games though. Bards Tale, Ultima, Heroes of Might and Magic. Oh, was I addicted to that one!

    I would have expected you to be a World of Tanks player.

    I've played WoW, WoT, Eve and Entropia Universe. My computer sucks so I don't play much... or at least I didn't until WoT...
    Washington - I cannot tell a lie.
    Nixon - I cannot tell the truth.
    Trump - I cannot tell the difference.

    Of all the games I've played, I have to say that Eve has the best concept. It's so detailed and open ended, it's unlike any other game there is. It's not just about getting the best gear to use a rinse and repeat raiding endgame, it's also about building the best empire, and picking and choosing what skills your pilot is going to train for. That game has a more grassroots organic experience in it than any other game I've ever played.

    The only problem is, it can kind of feel like a job. And I mean a real job, because depending on what you're pilot does, you may actually be "working" in the game. Guarding, mining, transporting, and getting paid for it.

    I also really respect how CCP(the developers) actually have an outlet for the players to talk about the game. There's a player run "Council" that meets annually with the developers and from what I've read, affect a lot of change within the game. CCP still retains final say of course, but they do try and shape the game to meet the players interests more than I've seen any other company. I also like how they don't dumb the game down like so many game makers are doing these days. World of Warcraft is practically on autopilot for you these days, they've stripped out everything that had depth and replaced it with shallow trivially-easy-to-understand systems so people don't get confused or actually have to think.

    I played that game for a few months, but took a break when Hulkageddon started earlier this year. Kinda never picked it up again afterwards, but I have two toons in Hulks, one of whom(my original) is also trained for battlecruisers(I'm Gallente).

    Oh, silly me. Also World of Tanks. Haven't played in a few weeks. I'm on T8 tanks (Panther II is what I'm playing with at the moment) and it's a long slog to the next tier.

    I haven't played in a few months. I always keep my subscription active though so my character can train. That's actually quite clever of the developers too. You skill up by doing nothing but having something in the training queue. It means there's a point to remained subbed to the game even while not playing. I currently have just over 36m skill points.

    I like reading about the scams. Some guy made a player ran bank and walked away with $170k worth of ISK (compared to how much a PLEX costs in ISK).
