  4. Well Yes I´m not kidding Have a look here http://www.realitymod.com/forum/f11-off-topic-discussion/68108-vbs2-jcove-lite.html or if you speak German here: http://armed-assault.de/news/vbs2-jcove-lite.html Its only the light Version, so don´t expect too much. But we have the FLIR included that will be in OPA so its definately worth trying it out Moderator addition: This thread can only be used for discussion about JCOVE, it's features and models. Any discussion about extracting the content, reverse engineering, or modding is strictly prohibited. The EULA is absolutely clear about this: Please keep in mind that JCOVE is not meant for entertainment purposes, it's is not supposed to used as game.

    The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim

    I dread to think what kind of abomination TES 6 will be. I have really zero hope for Bethesda to not ruin it in some way

    Contact Starters

    Too damn far away. Space is so unbelievably vast that we struggle to grasp the distances involved.

    Contact Starters

    lol OK, though to the question. The first question that needs to be answered is do the aliens behave in a way that their presence can be kept a secret? If not, then authorities should share as much information as possible with the population to avoid...misunderstandings. If it can be kept a secret, then they probably should do so for a time, both to control the flow of information, and also to prevent certain misunderstandings where some people immediately grab guns and want to purge some xeno scum in the name of the holy emp.... wait, wrong franchise.

    Contact Starters

    Why does a Cockroach scurry away when you switch on the light? Because it knows that you are far too dangerous for it. Humanity should avoid attracting any attention to itself until they have carefully assessed the threat that the aliens can pose.

    Hell Let Loose

    There is currently so much AI development in the industry because companies have finally understood how beneficial to them these systems can be. There is an demand for better AI in the industry. In the gaming sector however the demand simply is not there. Why should publishers and developers bother to invest into that, when todays gamers will lap up every pile of trash that is thrown in front of them....
  10. Tonci87

    Hell Let Loose

    Yeah, AI development is difficult and costly, so many companies go with a focus on MP. It really is a shame. I´m also a SP player, because I do not want to waste my precious time being frustrated by idiots and stupid children. You just can not get immersed in a regular MP game the way you can with a good SP game.

    Contact Starters

    Well that depends on the level of technological advancement they have, doesn´t it? If they are far more advanced than we are, then it is easier for them to discover us, than it is for us to discover them. If they are more advanced, they would have better equipment to scan for life, maybe they would even be capable of interstellar travel, something we won´t be able to do for a very very very long time.

    Contact Starters

    Well they could also have the same motivation as humans that drives them to visit new places. The simple joy to explore, or to be a tourist. I see these possible motivations that basically drive all lifeforms known to us: Trade, they give us something they have in return for something we have. Expansion, either for the sake of new Lebensraum or resources (also includes food and workforce). This also includes them trying to convert us to their religion or something like that (which by the way would be a cool story line). Exploration, some alien wants to discover the galaxy and finds us. Experimentation some aliens stumble upon us and decide to observe and study us out of scientific interest. Extermination we might not know the exact motivation, but maybe aliens really do not like us. Considering that with their technology they are able to fly through space, we are pretty much done for. Enlightenment they do not know selfishness, greed or anything like that and simply elevate us to their level. Now you could say, "but what if it is a motivation completely incomprehensible to us", but whatever aliens discover us, one of the following is going to happen: They show no interest in us, just like a fish in the sea might have a look at a diver and move on with its life. They enslave (use) us. They try to make us a part of them (either religiously or politically). They study us. They trade with us. They kill us. They know no concept of ownership or greed and simply show/give us all their technology. We then get greedy and conquer them, because as a species we are sadly just like that...

    Contact Starters

    Well this is interesting. I also believe that the first contact would, or be made by scientists, because they are more likely to figure out a means of communication, or would first be consulted. In the end though, I feel it would always come down to powerplays. The country, or group (e.g corporation) that can initiate contact first has the biggest potential to gain most from it. Human selfishness and lust for power would naturally then make the following things likely: The Group who makes contact first will try to keep the Aliens a secret from everybody else. They will seek to expand their own technological capabilities as fast as possible by learning from, or trading as much as possible with, the aliens. They would use their new capabilities to expand their power here on earth.

    Oh no.... What a tragedy I was actually planning to visit the cathedral next month when I will be in Paris for a day. It is so sad that this majestic building is burning 😞

    The EU parliament is up for vote soon. Make damn sure that the politicians and parties who let themselves be bought for this shit do not get your vote!

    Thank you!
  19. Done. It would be nice if you could publish the surveys result here as a courtesy.
  20. Oh yeah, the german Arma 2 launch was a serious disaster, but yes, at least BIS didn´t lie about it and they did fix the game eventually.
  21. You are a hundred percent correct. I would also like to add one more thing, The rivalry between codemasters and BIS meant that BIS had to step up their game. Arrowhead was a very substantial expansion to Arma 2. It added so so much to the game. Honestly I do not believe that Arrowhead would have been as substantial if BIS didn´t feel the pressure that they absolutely have to deliver a superior product. I do not think that the modern BIS has the same kind of drive and energy that the old one had. A lot has changed

    The paint job looks really good, well done!
  23. Great little documentary. Happy that BIS won "the war" I remember how we flamed Codemasters and Dragon rising here in the forum when that game was due to release. There was a thread dedicated to how shit that game was. Awesome times!

    I am not disputing that EU politicians are doing a terrible job. However, you should check how many Muslims live in Europe, and compare that with how many Muslims have committed terror attacks in Europe. The percentage is minuscule. As I said, I can feel actually safer walking through a majority Muslim, quite bad part of town here, than I would walking to a bad part of town in Poland. But now I see from what kind of sources you get your news from, and I am not surprised. Foxnews? Conservapedia? The Religion of Peace.com? Do you not see that those kinds of sources have very obvious agendas? BTW, one of those agendas is to blame everything on foreigners and direct the frustration and anger of the population, that should be rightfully aimed at our dear politicians, CEOs, and bankers, towards an unloved minority group. Very easy to do. Unfortunately many people fall for it. You included. No foreigner has ever done anything bad to you. Judging by Poland Demographic, you can probably count the foreigners you are acquainted to personally on one hand. Your politicians have done plenty bad stuff to you and to your fellow countrymen. And yet here you are, being mad about foreigners instead of asking yourself why your politicians (who have never done anything good to you) want you to be mad at foreigners. That is silly.

    Again, so many untrue things it´s incredible and I won´t go into everything. In my company people work 45 hour weeks. The "normal" amount would be 40. I know very few people who work 35 hour weeks. We have protection about being fired from our jobs in theory. I practice there are so many loopholes that if your boss wants you gone, he will have a way to fire you without many issues. It is news to me that we have kindergardens in our supermarkets, or even for the employees of supermarkets. The Supermarket employees I know work very hard, and very long hours, with unpaid overtime, and get a really shitty salary out of it that is barely adequate to get through the month. God help you if your car dies and you have to get a new one, because you have no savings. Corrupt politicians is a different issue altogether, and one that is real. Your Xenophobia is worrying. I live in Germany my whole life, often I have lived in, or visited areas that would be considered the bad part of town. Do you know how many times I have been raped, mugged, blown up, or heard somebody yell Allahu akbar? ZERO I can go right now, in the dark, to the worst part of one of the biggest towns in Germany with over 90% immigrant population and take a walk. I´m pretty confident that I will be OK. My Girlfriends family is from a pretty bad part of a town in Poland. When I visited I was advised to tuck my little gold chain under my shirt, since it would almost certainly get stolen. I´m also advised not to come with my own car. And that in a neighborhood full of white, christian Poles. Great! So much for a feeling of safety.... Maybe you should stop listening to whoever you have been listening to, or stop reading whatever you have been reading on the internet, and come to Germany yourself. See how it is. You think it is easy here? Good luck.
