    Unboxing some virpil stuff!

    So the thing with Virple is they are made of metal, sprung nicer and have the little thumb wheel for throttle?

    Bethesda banning players in Fallout 76 for accessing secret room

    Ban! Sad that anyone can't tell right from wrong in such an instance.

    Question on Ship Upgrades

    Yeah, I saw the Idris discussion, but it did not sound like a policy decison for anything other than the Idris, and I find it very long odds CIG will cut their own finances by doing the opposite of what they've always said they will. So though it will be nice if they do insure components, don't...

    Question on Ship Upgrades

    It is doubtful that you will ever be able to insure custom components. That is CIGs long term, main source of revenue. We blow up each other's stuff and then we pay to replace our own. Clever that. Big ships that are highly customed with all manner of special components obtainable only...

    Chaff

    I presume almost everyone here is familiar with their electronic countermeasures known as "chaff". Since I have an abiding interest in Electronic Warfare, I'm curious what people can tell me about the use of chaff in the game. So some quick questions. Do you have just one type of chaff for...

    Has there been any mention of gimbal weapons that auto-track their target?

    Now that's classic. Shades of Dirty Harry.

    Starfarer Backdoor

    You realize the day they allow you to lock the doors they'll make boarding charges available, and when people open the door that way they don't close properly afterward.

    But what if we like the fact we can kill people and take their treasure?

    Has there been any mention of gimbal weapons that auto-track their target?

    I'm pretty sure that is the problem with all ED, you're decoupled all the time. Is supposed to be easy to fix with Viagra though.

    Dual Hotas---HELP

    In Mechwarrior it is much simpler since you have fewer degrees of freedom, but the standard tactic for close in combat (brawler) is always run at full speed in a curve with your turret turned at 90*, and tap into the curve as you run in order to keep the crosshairs on your target. This actually...

    Dual Hotas---HELP

    That's all the convincing I need. I'll go for two sticks. Thanks guys!

    Dual Hotas---HELP

    That's what I'm talkiing about. So you can point your nose at the target and strafe right while you yaw left, and you essentially rotate around the target while keeping it in your sights. That's a brawler move! and exctly what I want. And if i understand, you can't do that effectively without...

    Dual Hotas---HELP

    Is anyone flying twin sticks and using peddals for throttle and reverse thrust (break)? I'm uncomfortable with the notion of three separate hand controls.

    Dual Hotas---HELP

    So it is fair to say, you can use yaw, pitch and roll controls at the same time as the three axis strafe controls quite easily with twin sticks, and really not easily at all with just one? I am thinking mostly of what to do with a Vanguard, but I would prefer to just learn one system that makes...

    Perma Death

    CIG has said they know they can't punish people for dying in game by taking their finances, since a character's wealth can so easily be tied to what the player invested to play. If you put $1k in and die, they can't have your next character get only a fraction of that. They get your entire...

    Dual Hotas---HELP

    I appreciate all this, and congrats on the excellent racing!, but I still want to understand the advantage. Are you somehow both flying normal controls and straifing at the same time? You're obviously getting higher accelerations with twin sticks. What do you use the twin sticks for? And if...

    Dual Hotas---HELP

    If you're not shooting a gimbal, what are the advantages of a dual stick over a stick and throttle? My concern with the 16000s is the buttons are all off the stick itself, and I really like the X56 throttle's button placements.

    Thanks for the warning. I didn't need much reason to skip this, hence I escape unscathed.
