Am I the only one who doesn't really care about graphics?
  • Ghost Recon, Ravenfield, Battlebit etc are shooters with simple graphics. Ghost Recon was from constraints of its time (2001 release) but Ravenfield and Battlebit could be way more photorealistic (like Squad) but chose not to. And I like that. In shooters you want good visuals if you can but having consistent performance is a bigger deal than some other games. I don't care about frame rate stutters in a turn based game like X-Com for example.

    Speaking of turn based, one of the graphically simplest games I've playes recently is Armored Commander II. It is very very basic graphically (think dwarf fortress or intellivision) and I shit you not it is more immersive than it has any right to. The graphics and display info gives you juuuust enough info to set your imagination into overdrive to fill in the rest.

    When your Sherman is almost out of ammo, bogged down in a muddy field and taking fire from enemy tanks in a nearby farm the actual graphics don't really matter so much

  • YSK: Using dairy milk after being tear gassed or pepper sprayed doesn't provide more relief and has slightly increased infection risk. Use water or saline instead
  • I've never been tased but I strongly suspect it would be taser, tear gas, pepper spray from best to worst. The effects of pepper spray is intense and long lasting, even when you shower after pepper spray will leave your pores and hit your face again, and maybe even run down to your junk if you aren't careful

  • Password Reset Not Working?

    I've been using an app so long I forgot my actual password! But when I go on the sh.itjust.works main site and put my email in the reset page it doesn't really do anything

    Edit nvm I remembered my password but still the reset function didn't work for me so for the sake of other users it should be checked out

    At the D-Day ceremony in France, a WWII veteran tried to kiss Zelenskyy's hand, but he knelt down to the vet and thanked him for saving Europe.
  • I get that in political office everything in the public eye is a sort of show. What clothes you wear, how you handle yourself, the speeches etc.

    So I get that to some people anything a politician does is purely for their own benefit. Nobody wants to look bad of course. But to me this seemed more genuine than most.

    And just imagine what was going through the mind of that veteran! You do your part when you were young, filling out the forms, standing in the lines, training. Probably having doubts that they would make it out in one piece. Then decades later being thanked in person by a leader from the generations of children that didn't even exist in the world you fought for, but who also understands the realities and tolls of conventional war at an individual level. It's got to be surreal.

    Camo is hard to photograph, and not for the reason you think! (Main cam vs Selfie cam colors)

    First up yes I'm a camo nerd. Metal Gear Solid 3 awakened something in me! Anyway every now and then I take different camo patterns into the woods and take photos as a reference to help people choose what works best for them. This one, Pencott Wildwood looks way too brown in most photos. Check it out!

    !

    But with the selfie cam it looks a lot closer to how it does in person

    !

    Maybe it's just the phone software that's only used in the main camera? I've messed with some of the settings with no luck. Here's a closer view of the pattern to show you what it's like up close

    !

    Any theories?

    Tips and Tricks for securing bikes?

    There was a NoStupidQuestions post about properly locking bikes to avoid theft and it got me thinking. I'm in a rural area so I never leave it anywhere. Any advice or rookie mistakes to avoid if I do plan to ride around a city?
