    What'd You Get? (Christmas Inventory)

    Stocking stuffers for me Boxes ($40): I got hosed compared to some around here: M4 Im(can't pen a paper bag)proved, Turan III, about 18 Premo days. I think I cleared about 13k in gold (mostly from repeats), and a few million in credits. Then sold a bunch of consumables I don't use to net a few more million. Used some of the gold to buy the Type 64. Still have 6k left over. Tech Tree-wise: Caernarvon and LTTB. Still need to apply my 2-4 and 9-10 discounts (still haven't used mine from last year as well).
  2. Awesoem Stylerod! No worries on the Gameplay. Grant's the only one with a good Claus video...he went Poke Poke and Up the Arse!, Mine was a literal poop show!

    My father in lawn and I use Rock Auto whenever we can. Haven't had issues yet on anything I have gotten from them. but I usually go 1 level about the economy class to be safe. usually those brand in the mid tiers are the makers of the OEM parts. Still a lot cheaper than a store or other outlets.

    Advice/Experience - Used Car Shopping

    Certified pre-owns I've seen (at least via Nissan) have a 7 yr 100,000 limited warranty. Private sale is doable but takes more leg work on my end. Now I may have bought more time since when I took the truck in today for Transmission service they found the ATF contaminated. Looks like I ended up with that known issue of the radiator failing and allowing coolant to mix with the ATF. So new radiator and a few flushes. Just hope I caught the issue early enough and didn't do more permanent damage to the transmission. If this gives me another year at least I can take more time looking, but its the last fix other than frontier rotor and brakes before inspection in the fall.

    What are you currently reading?

    Started Metro 2033 last night. Found an English translation PDF that converted to google books fairly well.

    Raised doors? (literally)

    Could be just for looks - sort of like the vaulted ceilings in modern homes. Could just be when your house was built and by whom. I've seen some strange houses around my parts. One looks like an octagonal igloo (no lie). People do things cause they can or Could be structural - maybe duct work between the floors. I think those oddities add character/charm. Use it as an advantage.
  8. Looking for some tips for shopping for a used car. My current ride is a 2007 Nissan Frontier v6 4dr 4wd with all but the dvd player and 148,000+ miles. She's starting to show a her age. The overdrive likes to give a little shudder when it tries to engage at low rpms. I'm trying to have her hang in there until we sign the paperwork on the new house and unload it before she quits on me. Anyways. A brand new truck is out of the question consider the aforementioned home purchase. Looking at another Frontier 4dr v6 4wd, but the more basic model. Consider a 2016-2017. 2018s are close in price point, but need them to drop. I'm more than willing to give up on some of the fun features of my beloved Nismo, but I've grown to be a bit more practical after owning it for this long. So I am looking for anyone's experience with purchasing used vehicles. What mileage range, price range and year range do you or did you consider? Where did you shop? How have said vehicles held up since? Were you able to talk the dealer down from the price?

    Any Knife Makers Here?

    Very Nice JD! My Cousin was a bladesman. He began as a ferrier, then took on more and more smithing. Sadly he passed away a few weeks ago from Cancer. He too made some impressive stuff. Here is a link from America Ferrier about his passing. https://www.americanfarriers.com/articles/10674-pennsylvania-farrier-mike-bailey-passes-away

    Fallout 76

    No issues that I noticed. I'm running a RX580, a FX4350 4-core 4.0ghz, 16gb of Ram. I think I have everything sent on the highest setting. Be sure to check that it is running in true full screen mode as the game default is borderless window. Read other noticing improvements switching. Most of the things I noticed were more server side: Delays in loot spawning in a chest, enemies frequently respanwing. game frozen on me a handful of times mostly was when I was frantically trying to engage VATS, but keep hitting Tab instead. the back and forth in the middle of combat locked things up. but at least you don't lose anything and respawn in the world at the same or near by spot.

    Fallout 76

    Got to play a about 3 to 4 more hours over the weekend. Hit level 11 and I have many more options of perk cards to choose from. Even found my first set of power armor while running around with SilentMercy. You can wear the armor pieces until level 25, but you can roll in the frame. down side is it does eat up your stash in the weight department. (stash limit MAY be increased by the 14th, but not confirmed) Cooping works well. inviting friends and dropping in the same world work pretty well. after a little fumbling around we were able to link up on the map and fast travel to one another. buy/sell/trade - works well. I pick what I want to give/sell set how many and price per unit. For Silnt's I just gave him some stuff at 0. Once you get used to it it is pretty easy. We someone manage to drop into an event at Mama Dolce where, while under constant barrage of enemies we had to find food stock to load the machine, then defend it. Took about 20 mins al together, the rewards were nice. Being able to revive teammates was helpful. One thing I'm not too keen on is how often enemies respawn in a particular area. I think it is too short. I understand it is a hard thing to tweak, but you could leave one area and return 10 mintues later to a full respawn. While it costs u more ammo, you do get a load of junk, weapons and things. Its just a little time consuming to have to repeat what you just did. Important note - every 5 levels you can craft a high level version of your armor or weapons. 1, 5, 10, 15 etc. I'm not sure if it is like FO4 where you can craft it back to stock to remove the mod - but I hope it does. I had a nice pipe revolver I wanted the barrel and scope from, but could find a way to de-mod. the new level 10 version is more powerful stock and with the mods would have been awesome. Building was a bit buggy. I tried to move my camp to a new location but couldn't get the full blueprint to laydown. It does save sections as well as the individual parts you built so you can slap it back together at no cost, but takes some time. Always build doors and lock them. With another week plus, I'm sure some of the kinks. There is so much to do, so many side quests and little nuggets, this game will definitely give you a few hundreds hours of play.

    Fallout 76

    Finally got to play the BETA last night for about 2 hours. Here are my notes and observations. If you have question just holler at me on discord. Everything ran perfectly fine on the defaulted High setting. Plan to crank it up Saturday. My system laughed at it last night. Technically I only ran into on glitch where the came froze and I had to force close. But I think it was my system and not on the server end. regardless. World looks great and is HUGE. So much to explore and discover it can be distracting. I like that it wasn't nuked and desolate, but more neglected and run down. Other player on the map were either with a friend or solo. But everyone seems to keep to them selves. Approach a player with your gun drawn and they may look at you, holster and they pay no mind. Did not try the Emoji communication system (G key), but looks fun. But voice was default on All. can make Area, Friends or off as well. Only thing I was bummed about was the assigning to a "world is random" so some main areas were cleared of enemies before I got there, but loot in crates is unique to all and enemies along the road re-spawn frequently. Only saw one guy become a murderer but I think he was dealt with pretty quick. so looks like the bounty system works well. and so does the "slap" system to try to start PVP. but seems most don't bother unless you maybe attack their CAMP or something. Combat is fluid much like FO4 and VATS is real time. Q to activate which lock you on to the target as a whole with a % hit chance the closer you are or high your perks in perception. I never really used VATS in the older games, but it seems better suited to my abilities this way. Melee is very viable, especially early on when ammo is scarce. The golf club is a great melee weapon - like tiger wood's ex-wife! SPECIAL and perk card system is really, really cool. This is a highlight of the game for me. It has flexibility and randomness that make you tweak a bit of your style early on. and you can swap cards in and out and totally change your character at any time. Have no fear I believe you can have up to five different characters as well (according to Reddit). So based on some RNG I have 2 to 3 points in S, P and A and the default 1 in the rest as the cards option to choose from didn't appear helpful to me or maybe weren't as good as the other options presented. You truly have to play with the cards your dealt in a matter of fashion. Example - It's still early I only have cards in 3 of 7 spots, but thanks to duplicate cards which you combine to level them up I have two really strong perks. Action girl #2 30% AP recharge and a Concentrated fire #3 give 20% increase change to each after each consecutive hit plus 20% dmg on next shot after a hit. Crafting is great, plenty of scrap and things can be found and looted. Weights are down, but you can become over encumbered. Don't worry - scraping lighten the loads. Also scraping weapons and armor is how u unlock the various mods for the weapons. I scrapped a few bolt pipe pistols and unlock a scope and long barrel to make a pretty strong long range .308 pistol. I really like this because I make you want to scrap stuff which "learns you" new stuff, give you scrap to upgrade or craft and reduces you carry weight. Like in NV you can craft ammo. Its pretty cheap and worth your time. Scraping item is easy since they use a "Scrap all" you do have to manage some inventory - mainly weight a quick pit stop frees you up. The CAMP and building is really simple. plenty of early option to build yourself a little house/base for crafting. if you leave the game it packs it up for you. after my freeze episode mentioned above, I launched back into a new world and still had all my stuff. My used the blueprint i made of my CAMP was packed up and redeployed it right where I left it. They also have STASH boxes which sort of act like the mailboxes in NV so you can stash stuff and have in in you stash no matter where you are. Food and Water. hunger was much of an issue, but water is something that tends to sneak up on you. But there are plenty of places to boil water (still has some rads tho) or purified to loot. So while you have to manage it, it wasn't too big of a deal. Food and drink recipes are plentiful and have varying effects. Also some food will spoil if you carry it too long. I have so much crafted food that I made in a few minutes I hade to stash it. I'm sure as the game progress I could turn into a traveling diner and sell it. Geez what else? I dunno ask me questions I may have answers.

    Gaming Rig advice request (Christmas 2018)

    I game on a budget and I've probably posted this before but it may help you shop around. You'll save a ton with black Friday and cyber Monday. Newegg usually has some solid deals/packages and I've saved a ton in the past with them. Sign up as a member (free) for the e-mails and keep you eye out for things so you can be ready to pull the money trigger when a good deal pops up. The hard part is all the flippin choices of parts out there it will make your head spin. I was drawn to AMD on the price point and haven't been disappointed yet. Solely for comparison- I run an: ASUS Pro-gaming 970X MoBo [onsale under $100], AMD FX4350 4 core 4.0ghz [on sale under $100], Redragon rX580 8GB - [$230ish], 16gb ddr3 Ram G-skill Red Ripsaw [on sale about $80] Most of this stuff was purchased in the last year and a half to two years. I also don't bother with overclocking, but I can run all modern titles at the highest settings without an issue. I am limited only to DDR3, but I don't see a personal need yet to for about moving up to DDR4.
