PC Games / Re: Is Factorio any good? Autism simulators general.
« on: July 20, 2021, 10:05:57 am »
Factorio ($30) is a fun assembly line game with monsters that try to kill you. The more you expand, the more pollution, the worse the monsters (you can also turn them to passive if you want to relax). Main goal is to build a rocket. 2D flat world. Resources are limited, but you can customize your starter map if you want to make it easier.  Lots of mods available too. I should mention that Factorio has been getting regularly modified so the game I played a couple years ago does not behave the same way now, makes coming back fun. 9/10

Satisfactory ($30) is fun assembly game where you need to build a space elevator. There are places to explore to find research, and there are some monsters and radiation. Base resources are unlimited, but there is a cap on how much you can pull out at once. Power and resource transportation is the big focus. Fully 3D game still in development, but completely playable. Storyline not yet introduced, so there is no real 'end game'. Spiders are probably the worst mods in the game, if you don't like them you can change them to cat head sprites. Halfway decent computer needed. Many mods, but build tend to break them. Only major builds can damage save games and the developers are great about warning you of them.  I've stopped playing (burned out) until the storyline is introduced. 8/10

On the same page is also Dyson Sphere Program ($20). Extremely solid build, but still in development. Regular updates, and I have never had a bug that wasn't mod related. Interplanetary game where you build and expand while researching through the tech tree. No storyline yet. No enemies yet. Challenge is resource management and build with limited resources (which can be changed up to unlimited if you want). Can be very relaxing and the graphics are beautiful. You can build Dyson spheres (solar only, no living on them like Ringworld). 9/10... would be 10/10 but once you finish the tech tree there is just more building. There needs to be something for the player to be 'against' more. Decent computer needed, but it is well optimized already. I think my biggest concern is the save game file size, I've had games where the save file is 750 megs so make sure your save file isn't being backed up to an online storage site.

Are you cleaning they up for demolition, conversion, or reuse?

I'm at 23 years fixing computer for a hospital. First chance I get to quit and do something else, I'm done.

The original Iron Beam was a project between the USMC and Israel. If I recall correctly, it had three false starts as by the time the prototype weapon was ready to fire as the technology had already completely leapfrogged past the weapon. I think when Iron Beam is finally actively deployed, we'll hear about it officially a couple years later. Politically it would be best to keep giving all the credit to the Iron Dome and 'dud' rockets. A good defense laser is going to take out a rocket as soon as it can, ideally during the boost phase where stresses on the rocket will tear it apart from even minor damage. Imagine the political backlash if people could prove Israel is dropping Hezbollah rockets on Palestinians without care of consideration for the civilians by taking them out with a laser in the first few moments of launch.  "Why didn't you wait until it was over an unpopulated area instead?"

I need to get SC4 working again. On Windows 7/10 I know I had to do a bunch of tweaks to make it playable.

You can't just build a park lot over a swamp! It will always stink! Plus good luck getting planning approval..

Scrambled eggs. Break eggs in to a bowl, whisk with a splash of milk, pour in to non-stick pan. Turn on heat to low (20-25%) and cross pan, moving eggs off of the center heated area to allow the liquid eggs to flow in to get cooked. As clumps begin to form, flip wet bits as needed to cook away the goo.

It is one way to drain the swamp, you fill it with concrete and make it a parking lot (car park).
