Serious / The Gamification of Being an Obedient Citizen
« on: January 06, 2017, 04:09:12 PM »

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-34592186

https://qz.com/519737/all-chinese-citizens-now-have-a-score-based-on-how-well-we-live-and-mine-sucks/

So I thought about making this topic a year ago due to most of us having a shared interest in gaming as a hobby and due to the fact that I generally find it to be an interesting subject, but just never ended up getting around to it. For those who don't know (and can read or watch more about above) China has instituted a system where all of their citizens online activity is monitored and rated on their purchasing habits and political opinions they've expressed. People with higschores can get things like better loans from the bank or discounts on hotels when they travel while people with lower scores will face more scrutiny and will likely end up finding it harder to things like loans or insurence and could find it harder to secure jobs due to having a low "trustworthiness" rating.

Even if the information on this is outdated due to being a year old we can still discuss the concept, or idea of a system like this being put in place. So what are your thoughts on the above system that people of criticized as being Orwellian? Do you think we might see these kinds of systems popping up outside of China in the future?

Gaming / EVE getting free to play option
« on: August 31, 2016, 01:41:51 PM »
https://community.eveonline.com/news/dev-blogs/introducing-clone-states-and-the-future-of-access-to-eve-online/

There are restrictions on what f2p accounts can train, but honestly the restrictions aren't that bad since most pvp outside of large sovnul engagements only involve t1 frigs destroyers and cruisers anyway. The only thing that has me kind of "eh" though is that f2p accounts are limited to only flying ships of their chosen "race". I mean every faction has good ships in it, but it makes it hard to f2p people to reship for different kinds of fleet doctrines and kind of forces them to kitchen sink everything. I suppose f2p people do need an incentive to subscribe though, otherwise people would never do it.

Regardless I think this will be a good thing for the game as it will inject a lot of new blood into the game in November.

Gaming / Sep7 Stellaris Galaxy: Game Start (again)
« on: May 18, 2016, 05:10:42 AM »



Notice: I will be leaving for Hawaii in a couple days so this wont happen until after I get back


So I've been playing and loving Stellaris lately, a game in which you craft your own interstellar empire and try to forge your way through a randomly generated galaxy (of your type choosing) with however many other alien empires you chose to spawn in with you (up to a max of 40 empires including your own). While playing it I came across the console command of "observe" which takes you away from the control of any empire and situates you in a spectator seat while an AI takes control of whatever empire it was you chose to play as. This gave me an idea. What if I placed a whole bunch of sep7 created empires and set them loose in a galaxy with each other?

So this is where you guys come in. I'd like each of you to craft a single empire from the options I give below so I can let this happen. When I'm back from Hawaii I'll start up this thing and give periodic updates on it (basically leaving the game up and running in the background while I do other stuff) so you guys can see how your empires are doing.

For those of you who don't want to make your own and just want to do everything either post saying you want to be part of it and I'll randomly generate something in your name, or post the stuff you care about and I'll fill in anything you didn't post for your race/empire myself. Priority will be given to those who put more work in the unlikely event that this fills up.

Now lets get crafting.

Step 1: Choosing your race

http://www.stellariswiki.com/Species Wiki's don't normally let you embed stuff from them so just post the race type and portrait id if its giving you trouble.

Note: I do not have Mammalian Massive #16 and Anthropoid Massive #14.


Step 2: Naming your race
Self explanatory

Step 3: Picking your traits
http://www.stellariswiki.com/Traits
If you don't want to do any sort of number crunching you can post an idea of what you'd like your races traits to be and I'll try the best I can to represent it with the options available to me.

Step 4: Picking your first ruler
The first ruler will be named after you.

Step 5: Pick and name your Homeworld + star

Pick from one of 7 Planet types and name it. The planet types are as follows.

Continental, Ocean, Arctic, Tundra, Arid, Desert, Tropical

Step 6: Pick your city type
This is just aesthetic and offers no gameplay bonuses. Choose from Mammalian, Avian, Reptilian, Anthropoid, Molluscan, and Fungoid.

Step 7: Pick your government and ethos

Now we can do this a couple different ways. You can either build one with information gained from the wiki. http://www.stellariswiki.com/Government_types http://www.stellariswiki.com/Ethos#Militarist_-_Pacifist

Or you can describe the kind of government you want and I'll try to work with it.

For reference here are the categories. You can either pick from the left or the right side in each category and can have a total of three points allocated to ethos. Fanatic ones are worth two and regular ones are worth one.

Fanatic militarist - militarist ———-- pacifist - fanatic pacifist

Fanatic collectivist -  collectivist ————- individualist - fanatic individualist

fanatic xenophobe - xenophobe ————-- xenophile - fanatic xenophile

fanatic materialist - materialist ————— spiritualist - fanatic spiritualist


Governments are dictated by ethos so if you just want a specific government type and don't want to dabble in ethos you can just post that and I'll try to ascribe the necessary ethos to have it.

Military Dictatorship
Divine Mandate
Despotic Hegemony
Enlightened Monarchy
Despotic Empire

Military Junta
Theocratic Oligarchy
Science Directorate
Peaceful Bureaucracy
Plutocratic Oligarchy

Military Republic
Theocratic Republic
Direct Democracy
Moral Democracy
Indirect Democracy

Step 8: Pick your flag
http://www.stellariswiki.com/Flag_modding
post color and flag ids

Step 9: Pick your starting weapon

Mass drivers, missiles, or lasers

Step 10: Pick your FTL meathod


Warp, Hyperspace, or Wormhole

Step 11: Pick your ship aesthetic
Mammalian, Avian, Reptilian, anthropoid, Molluscan, or Fungoid


You're done.

Gaming / Free Copy of Dark Souls
« on: April 22, 2016, 11:58:13 PM »
So yesterday Xbox Live gave me a message saying that they've decided to gift me a free copy of Dark Souls 1 for the 360. Seeing as how I already own all of the Dark Souls games I don't really have a need for a second copy. If anyone hasn't played the game before and wants to give it a go leave a comment in here and i'll throw names in a hat or something to decide who gets it.

For those who don't know the game is also backwards compatible so people who own and Xbox One can redeem it as well.

Gaming / Sep7 XCOM Unit: South of the Border
« on: February 03, 2016, 02:11:51 AM »
When XCOM 2 comes out on the 5th I feel like making a run with Sep7 members as my units. How many of you would want to be included?

If so post ITT with what class you'd prefer to be.

For those of you who are unfamiliar I'll post the classes and what they have.

Spoiler
Ranger: Rifles, shotguns, and swords

Specialist: Rifles and robot drones

Sharpshooter: Sniper rifles and pistols

Grenadier:  Miniguns and grenade launchers

Psy Operative: Rifles and psy amps. (Note if you want this you may not appear until late in the game)

Might stream it too in case any of you want to watch yourself die horribly fight valiantly against the alien oppressors.

News / New Mod
« on: December 21, 2015, 02:38:56 PM »
So new mod discussion has been something the staff has been discussing on and off for a few weeks now, obviously the December spergout brought it up again. So after quite a bit of discussion we've settled on making Luciana the newest addition to your lovely mod team.



P.S. Ninja shit still hasn't been fixed so Luci has the Master Ninja prefix. All other mods are using a custom rank so their title is just regular ninja. Their positions are exactly the same though.

The Flood / Maintenance Tuesday
« on: December 07, 2015, 10:54:31 PM »
Expect downtime tomorrow due to server maintenance. The email from the host is below.

Quote
An upgrade to the system infrastructure is scheduled to take place in two phases on Tuesday, December 8 at 9:30pm MST. This upgrade will allow us to increase reliability and uptime for the services we provide.

Phase one includes 15-20 minutes of downtime during which your website may be temporarily unavailable to your viewers. Your website will be back online, viewable, and all interactive features will be fully functional at the beginning of phase two.

During phase two, certain portions of the Bluehost website including the login function, cPanel tools, and webmail will be unavailable. Email generated will not be lost, though you will experience some slowness while sending and receiving mail during the maintenance period.

Thanks in advance for your patience during this upgrade. We're working hard to improve the services that power your website and we understand any maintenance can be an inconvenience.


Reposted here because a lot of you rarely check news.

Gaming / #Raid4Tru
« on: October 19, 2015, 02:50:12 PM »
Tru wants to do the older raids in Destiny because he's not a high enough level to do the Kings Fall one.

So who's up for doing Vault of Glass and/or Crota? Gears not good anymore, but you can still get ships, shaders, emblems, achievements, and sparrows.

We're playing on the Xbox One.

Gaming / Fate/Grand Order General: Down To Zero We Go
« on: September 07, 2015, 05:56:19 AM »


Fate/Zero Event CM
YouTube


What is it?
Fate/Grand Order is a free to play mobage/enjoyable time sink where you progress through a VN-lite style of story while fighting in a turn based KoH Chain of Memories like combat with your waifus and husbandos from TYPE-MOON's Fate franchise that you obtain from spending either your Friend Points (FP) or Saint Quartz (Quartz, Jew stars, et cetera).

FP is obtained freely from summoning either people on your friends list (for 25 FP) or random people (for 10 FP) into your support slot. Saint Quartz is obtained from completing story missions, free missions, interludes, and certain event dailies. Oh and you can buy it if you're a freaking whale.

How to get it
If you don't have an android phone download an emulator like Bluestacks*, Andy*, or MeMu. Once that's installed you can either download QooApp to access the Japanese storefront or make a Japanese Google Play Account. Search for Fate/Grand Order from there.

*While Bluestacks and Andy are good emulators they does have a partnership with some mobile game devs where it wants you to download one of their games every so often if you want to continue using it for free. You can either find a hacked version of Bluestacks that removes this altogether, or you can delete the data for BS-Services in your settings for Bluestacks and close the instance of BS-Services whenever it starts up and asks you to sync your data. Mildly annoying, but you're using it for free and not downloading anything so its better than nothing.


Do I need to be able to read runes to play this?
No, you can get by without reading runes just fine. You just wont be able to understand the story.

Does Servant rarity matter?
Yes and no. For some classes (such as the saber class) rarity correlates with strength. Gilles de Rais is flat out the worst saber class servant in the game while Arturia and Atella are the best (at the time this was written). However for other classes this isn't true. For example Stheno and Carmillia are 4* servants, but Hassan and Kojiro (being 2 and 1 star servants respectively) out class them in every way. To illustrate further Medea and Cu Chulain are two really strong servants that are better than half of the 4*s despite only being 3*s themselves.

What's the difference between the FP and SQ lottery?
The FP lottery contains 1-3* servants, xp, Fou cards, and craft essences only, the SQ lottery contains 3-5* servants and craft essences.

What's a Craft Essence (CE)?
A Craft Essence is essentially an item that you can equip to a servant to power it up and give it a special passive. Examples being +200 ATK and +25% damage from buster attacks.

News / Official Moderation Style Poll
« on: September 05, 2015, 04:24:12 PM »
Last December, we conducted a poll to choose the style of moderation that our staff would follow. The three types that were up for a vote were:

Quote
  • Strict System - Under this system of moderation, all rules will be enforced more heavily with a clear, concrete moderation process when it comes to warnings and bans (This process would be shared with the community once it is developed). While we will not become Waypoint and just ban without letting you know ahead of time that you are breaking the rules - there would be far less verbal warnings being given out before we actually take moderation action. Essentially: You know the rules, you follow the rules, or you lose privilege to post on the forums.
  • Lax System - Similar to what we have now, this system would take a more relaxed route to enforcing the rules, with moderation decisions less concrete. While there would be a suggestion moderation process, any punishments would ultimately come down to the Moderator that is online and handling the problem, along with the severity of the rule break, and whether or not there are alternatives to bans available
  • Hybrid System - This would use both the strict and lax systems, and apply them to different rules for the website. For example, Personal Attacks/Graphic Content/Harassment would fall under the Strict System - you know that it is not allowed, and the moderation process for handling them is concrete and clear. Issues like spam and shitposting, however, would fall under the Lax System - it comes down to the moderator's discretion as to how it is dealt with*

In the poll, Hybrid won with 61.4% - Since then, it has been how we wrote our rules and defined the moderation.

Recently, it has come to the staffs attention that this system may not be the best for our site, and that the punishments that accompany it are too relaxed, especially for repeat offenders. In light of this, we are once again polling the community on how they want their moderation to be. The three poll options will be as followed:

  • More Strict Moderation, with Harsher Punishments
  • Moderation as it currently is
  • More Relaxed Moderation, with Lesser Punishments

This poll will run until Thursday, alongside the Community Feedback thread.

Thank you for your input.

« on: May 08, 2015, 01:19:59 PM »


Yep, I'm going to do as many Kara no Kyoukai movies as I can in one sitting starting from the first one. Overlooking View. This series doesn't exactly have the name power of Miyazaki behind it so it's understandable that many of you have probably never heard of it. However for those of you who are willing to check it out it'll likely be an entertaining ride.


WARNING: The Kara no Kyoukai movies contain scenes with, blood, gore, rape, drug use, and other things that may not be suitable for young viewers. Viewer discretion is advised.
