I understand. Visiting an old train-yard would presumably bore you to death:
Actually that looks painful, generally speaking new steam is not being made anymore anywhere, the vast majority were scrapped and with a little care a lot of the survivors could steam again.
Jam, what is up with that mixed spoke thing? I know they balanced the weights but I was under the impression at least with US practice that most of the driver wheels were the same. Hasty/cheap repairs, or driver balancing technique I am unaware of?
@Gators1 I thought someone posted this a while back. And why is every damn game full of haxxors!
I think someone mentioned it in the ARMA thread or somewhere. It’s still fun if you can find a private server to play on though. Not sure about haxxors, but the gaming world seems to attract those assholes like flies on shit. Probably some douchebags that get beat up or teased every day in real life and that’s their only way to to think they have some power or that their life is meaningful in some way. As far as I am concerned they should go eat a hollow point.
z1232 said I’m starting to slowly get back into dayz. Is the standalone game worth it?
Depends, what do you want from a game? Dayz SA has much more complex loot and crafting compared to Dayz mod. It is also slightly more challenging than dayz mod to survive, although this heavily depends on what sort of loot distribution does the current version have. Changes to things like loot, or zombie stamina, turn the game from real easy to real hard quite quickly and these changes happen. Also, there are public and private hives, with public hives you have greater chance of finding a server with population that you like, but you’ll have people server hopping to get gear.
Boman said So, I have been playing mostly KOH (King of the Hill) and last night I tried Altis Life again. This mod seems a bit more ‘tame’ so to speak. I guess as an example you could be a migrant worker and just pick apples or peaches all day for money. You can also fish and sell the fish for money. They have transport missions, where you interact with guy in town A and travel to B and meet with another guy. They also having mining production and oil production. Then you have illegal activities. Weed harvest and processing. Turtle poaching. Cocain harvest and production. Meth production. On top of that you have gangs, bounty hunters, cops, civilians, and paramedics. Killing on Sight is discouraged and they promote interaction before you just kill someone. They do have jail. The mod is different to say the least. Epoch is apparently in a Alpha by invite only test right now. You know they are gonna charge for that mod if they can this time around. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ik5KgS6pbYI]
Can I be a female character so I can be a prostitute? It would be kind of funny to tell the dude he screwed a man after I get his money. I guess I would get shot a lot though. :(
You can always try Blanks-character.
That would get tiring if I had to press the mouse button for every stroke.
