    That's just common sense...That's also why you run a cable under the carpet when nobody is watching

    If the car is idling and your not moving your wasting fuel. The battery in a old car can't handle the cranking constantly which is why they use to tell you to leave your car idling.
    Modern cars have stop/start technology (can you tell I work for a car manufacturer) as they have overcome such problems and most cars also stop pumping fuel into the engine when braking downhill as its such a waste.

    rentaspoon got a reaction from chshrkt in Is Star Citizen a giant scam?   
    No it's not a scam, the active community wanted it extended and this is the result, yes its frustrating having to wait but I played Kingdom Come and TBH the 4yrs wasn't long enough, I'm happy to wait for a game if its well done. 
     
    $65 for 2 games does seem expensive but they changed this in 2015 iirc, I originally paid £27 for the complete package at the time the dog fighting module came out. 
     
    Paying bug testers? Not really, that's the evocati, of which some have ended up working for CIG. 
     
    Cult? Aren't you part of the PCMR? 
     
    Sunk cost/time falicy? Not really, I increased my pledge after I felt I hadn't paid the devs enough for the time spent in arena commander, the reason I've spent that much time? The people on here are awesome, we've branched out in other games and fingers crossed I'm off to different parts of the world at some point to meet a few of them. Best $100 spent for that reason alone. 
     
    But this is what I usually expect from people that haven't done the research and only read the title of every article of SC, that and a dude that is trying to justify a purchase of a Ferrari and a night at a brothel. It's why the SC LTT community moved away from the forums.

    rentaspoon reacted to Corwin111 in Is Star Citizen a giant scam?   
    Let's put it this way. There exist only three games that I feel I have gotten my money's worth from. Games that I have played past whatever single-player they may or may not have had and then moved on to play the multiplayer on a daily basis for years on end. However incomplete it may be, SC is one of those games. 
     
    Also, as Spoon pointed out above, I have gained real actual friends in this community. Not the "hey how about a raid on Saturday" online kind of friends, but the "Hey, I'd like to invite you to my wedding" kind. 
     
    So there's that.

    rentaspoon reacted to Napper198 in Star Citizen Free Flight Event   
    With the recent alpha 3.3 patch being really good performance wise and it giving us the ability to purchase ships with in-game money Star Citizen is finally starting to become more and more of a game.
    Coincidentally the 6 year anniversary of the Kickstarter funding is coming up next week so CIG is doing their annual anniversary sale which will be accompanied by a free flight event where everyone with a Star Citizen account can test the game and all it's currently flyable ships with no purchase or credit card required. From 23rd of November to 1st of December you can test the whole flyable lineup of each ship manufacturer to your hearts contend and also explore any currently available planets like Crusader, Dalamar and possibly even Hurston and their moons or try out any of the various missions.
    If you're interested but don't have an account yet I highly suggest using the referral code picker provided by the local Linus Tech Tips Organization to grab some in-game money when signing up and if you have any questions or would like to meet some fellow citizens to help you out with tips, tricks or crew members, feel free to join our Discord server (which is not the official LTT discord btw)
     
    Fly safe!

    rentaspoon got a reaction from Technous285 in Character gender choice in gaming   
    I've always played as a female character, a lot of games use to have females as the more agile characters so I found that fitted my play style better, I think now it's escapism, I rarely will pick a male character in game because the last thing I want to do is play myself. It's what bothers me with the usual comment that "men get to be themselves in games". Plus playing a bad ass female character is better than a male badass character.

    Good timing since my joystick is flapping around everywhere, struggling to keep it stand up, it wants to flop to the right constantly. Think it's time to get someone to see if they can fix it. Or replace it.

    Try 720p and see if it still happens, I believe it's something to do with the overscan options, failing that see if your TV supports point to point referencing, usually under aspect ratio

    It's not you it's the server, it's tracking 50 players plus all there items indiscriminately updating positions of everything whether it needs to or not, quiet servers with 5ish players are nice and smooth at 80fps, plus your running it on ssd right? 
     
    The games also very cpu intensive anyway, it's constantly streaming things into the memory so I'm told.

    rentaspoon got a reaction from Wauthar in Effect of RAM on performance in Star Citizen?   
    I wouldn't waste the money, I was troubleshooting yesterday and took a stick of ram out to see if that was the fault, I found it to be extra jittery in port olisar but apart from that it ran fairly smooth after a while, manage to get 60fps in places. 8gb is ok, 16gb seems to just smooth the gameplay a little.
     
    The PU is taxing on the server at the moment so the jankiness is because of that, optimization on the backend happens constantly and you can notice the difference if you play throughout patches.
     
    Recent AtV below explains whats happening.
