Because meteor showers are enabled, I have several gun turrets around the base set to 800m targeting distance, they don't target characters to avoid wasting ammunition on the occasional wolves.
For the same reason, the vital parts are built underground behind the main building, in the mountain: refineries, assembler, power generator and batteries, cargo storage, hydrogen storage, and oxygen processing.
I'm trying to balance form and function, with a *slight* lean towards form
I really wanted to have a large hanger fully built before nightfall, so I can stay inside during the night and build a ship that will take me to space. And I did it!
For scale: the large door on the front is 10 meters high and 20 meters wide. The hangar goes into the mountain, it's laid out to provide an unobstructed 30m × 30m workspace.
A similarly large landing pad is already built on the other side of the base
So basically I have this survival-mode game which is fully vanilla save for a couple mods to make the nights darker. Animals are on, meteor storms are on, day/night cycle is set to the maximum 24h.
I started with a drop pod on the Earth-like planet and my goal is to do a grand tour of every planet and build a base on each of them that I can use to refuel and carry on.
I'm in no rush, I just want things to be interesting. Today is day 5 (I'm not in space yet), so ~120 hours in
The "virgin hyperloop" hit a top speed of about 100 mph, please note that a steam locomotive hit 128 mph in 1938. It was even called the Magnificent Mallard, a name that is at least trying.
Potentially handy script.
Basically like Popcorntime on the CLI (i.e. watch films and tv straight from torrents).
`pop "my fair lady"`
`pop "the andromeda strain 1971"`
`pop "the mandalorian" 2 1`
So long as what you search for is the #1 result on imdb and a torrent exists, it should start playing.
The hard work is all done by peerflix.
Needs: peerflix, jq and mpv (player can be changed by editing the peerflix lines in the script).
Remember when games were sold for 50€, got at most a patch for critical game-breaking bugs six month later, and then a "gold" deluxe release a year later that also sold for 50€?
Today is Bandcamp Friday, 100% of proceeds go to artists, and drone/doom/kraut band Des Yeux released a 20+ minutes long track as a fundraising effort to provide adequate IT for kids in less fortunate communities who need it for online schooling: https://desyeux.bandcamp.com/album/vide
I write bugs for a living, pretty cool eh?
