    The Music Thread 2019

    Get ready for some blasts from the past.
  2. I'm going to start building random sandstone "ruins" and stuff around the battle biome. I've also began to roughly fence it off - Help would be appreciated as it's quite the endeavor!

    Kerbal Space Program 2 (Multiplayer!)

    I bought Kerbal in early access when it was $7, best $7 investment ever. More info!

    Thalnos Server (PVP)

    So this is interesting, Blizzard is warning players that they expect queues of over 10,000(!!!) players on launch - And that they have extra contingency servers to spin up in case of emergency. In this case I'd almost rather wait a few days after launch to try and find one of the lesser populated servers. I'm sure they will all be high population, I just don't want to be stuck in a queue for the first 2 days of playing.

    Server Outage Resolved

    Yesterday the Minecraft server crashed hard and was down for the day, it is finally back online - My apologies for the delay and thanks to the users that reported it! Sometimes I don't have time to check the server for a few days at a time so letting me know is always best! Unfortunately since it crashed so badly the server was rolled back a few hours from when it was last online - I don't know exactly when that was but since it crashed during the night I don't believe any players should be affected. If you notice anything strange let me know as soon as possible and I will investigate.
  6. Hype, hype, HYPE! Looks like a lot more focus on the different planet environments, building of outposts, and lots of other improvements!

    Drugs are a hell of a drug.
  11. Resurrection: Thursday D&D - Roll20 - Curse of Strahd Because @Zeriador is being a lazy turd burglar I figured I'd mention what happened to the Thursday D&D group... It survived! But differently. Unfortunately due to a couple of schedule conflicts and some people dropping out for other reasons the campaign was reset with a few new members and we have caught up, and progressed even further than our first round. We made sure to not let it affect our game meta and came out stronger for it. During the start there was some laziness on my part and I did not get to writing down notes for the campaign as we played but I'll try to remember what I can and hopefully others can jump in to fill the gaps. Paging Zeri to start this off..
  12. Creating this thread to make some plans for the launch of classic if anyone is interested in playing with - Discuss which classes, server, etc. Dougler who is a current subscriber of WoW has picked a server for us to play on when classic launches. I guess the consensus is to play Alliance on the Thalnos PVP server. Which classes do you guys want to play? How many people will we have playing on launch? I would prefer to play a Paladin healing build as that is what I was most used to from playing but I am willing to play any class to fill in gaps. What about you nerds?
  13. Since WoW: Classic is launching soon and I do intend to at least try it for a couple of months I was doing some research about it and was thinking some of you old nerds (like myself) had some questions about it and I guess I'll post what I consider to be the most important points. Release Date is August 27th, 2019 Blizzard will maintain Classic alongside the regular WoW servers "forever". Your current one (1) single WoW subscription will grant you access to both versions of WoW so you can play whichever you prefer. The data used for the game is based off the 1.12.1 patch. The server backend is based on the current tech. There will be no LFG/LFR tool. No cross-realm grouping. Content release will be pseudo-progressive (6 stage release cycle) * see below! Cross realm battleground will be used at launch of PvP. Layering will be used at server launches in a limited capacity (currently unknown how limited). The AQ Gate opening event and Scourge Invasion will happen. Flightpaths will be linked. --- Content Release Plan Phase 1 (Classic Launch) Molten Core Onyxia Maraudon No formal PvP content (no HK or DK tracking) Phase 2 Dire Maul Azuregos Kazzak Honor System introduced - including PvP ranking rewards Phase 3 Blackwing Lair Darkmoon Faire Darkmoon deck drops begin Alterac Valley and WSG Phase 4 Zul’Gurub Green Dragons Arathi Basin Phase 5 Ahn’Qiraj War Effort begins Ahn’Qiraj raids open when the war effort dictates Dungeon loot reconfiguration: Tier 0.5 Dungeon gear, Relics, drop rates and location changes Phase 6 Scourge Invasion Naxxramas World PvP 'objectives' in EPL and Silithus --- Alterac Valley Blizzard announced they will use the 1.12.1 version of Alterac Valley. This version doesn't differ too greatly from current retail. However, there are no reinforcement caps and more elite enemies. There is no Korrak the Bloodrager in 1.12 and a number of other NPCs and PvE objectives are missing from earlier versions.

    Fish Fraud

    Been looking into "Fish Fraud" recently as I do enjoy seafood quite a bit and there is a good read here: https://oceana.ca/en/blog/canada-has-seafood-fraud-problem And there are lots of other related articles easily found online as it is a worldwide epidemic. What shocked me is what types of fish get passed off for higher quality meats, especially served raw in sushi. If you didn't already know all fish used for sushi has to be completely frozen for a certain period of time at a certain temperature to be served to kill parasites, etc. but it won't save you in all cases - Things like Escolar (a fish banned in some countries because its "complicated" to eat safely) being passed off as Tuna. What got me looking into this was this Tweet thread that I'll archive here.. Pretty eye opening stuff though it'll never stop me from eating seafood because I enjoy it too much. But maybe I'll put more effort into catching my own or paying up for better sourced stuff.
