    KSP Weekly: The Orbiters!

    They are revamping the parts and, in this case, the EVA suits. If you want to pay money for an improved suit you might as well pay money for visually improved engines or tanks. Basically Ven's Revamp, but you need to buy it.
  3. So I actually haven't been doing as bad as I thought, then?
  4. Well, most words, like "antechamber" and "strong room" were words I simply never heard before. Additionally there were some words used in a way I never heard before, like "honor an arrangement". Neither "honor" (which I assume is like "keeping" in "keeping a promise") nor "arrangement" (agreement) were words I ever heard before in this way. Examples for words I didn't know: catharsis, reconciliation (as well as "reconcile" later on), condescending, animosity. Don't know if I should feel bad about not knowing some of these words. Then there are some accents making some words more difficult, gunfire obscuring words, etc. But I will admit: DiCaprio has a nice, easy-to-understand voice.

    What did you do in KSP today?

    Yet another KSP player who succumbed to insanity?
  6. I'm looking for assurance here: Could anyone who has seen Inception please confirm to me that the vocabulary used is rather highbrow for a non-native speaker (watched it partially with subtitles, so acoustic understanding is not my concern)? It was an avalanche of unknowns for me personally and I wouldn't say that my vocabulary is bad or slim in any way. If I'm watching a movie in English in a cinema somehow and somewhen in the future I will most likely not be equipped with a dictionary or any means of writing down words, and the words I didn't get were crucial to the context most of the time - if not all the time. I'm slightly panicking, to be honest.

    Agreed. The white-red helmet looks far better, but they can keep the new suits.

    KSP Weekly: The Solar Visit

    @passinglurker I mean, I'd really like to use Ven's parts in my Principia copy (if it even still works for 1.4, I guess not given the new features of 1.4), they look fantastic and gorgeous. The problem with installing it now is that - analogous to Squad themselves revamping crucial parts like engines - proportions would break and old craft files become unusable. Something you probably want to avoid in a game that left beta a long time ago.

    Graphics mod for latest release?

    KS3P, which adds post-processing. And TexturesUnlimited for PBR shaders.

    I agree with that. The base parts - ALL of them - need a massive overhaul. But it seems that no matter what @SQUAD does to them in an attempt to make them visually more pleasing, the only thing they get back consistently is complaints. I for one quite like the way the HECS now looks. We can argue about the new size 1 tanks though; I think those are just lazy copy-pastes from the size 2 tanks. From what I've gathered here there are two options: Either the parts @SQUAD provides us with look like those made by Porkjet or they are bad. And I don't want to create a false dichotomy or even a strawman - that's genuinely what I'm getting from this conversation. Either Porkalike or terrible. No other options available.

    Thread to complain bout stuff

    I listen to something in English or read a text, either here or somewhere else, that contains a word that I don't know. I open up Wiktionary and try to figure out what the word means, but what I'm greeted with is not a defintion/ multiple definitions but a heap of synonyms. Great help, especially when you don't know the synonyms as well. For instance: try "exorbitant" and then tell me that I'm supposed to learn from that entry. And almost all of them are this way. 5 minutes later and I have at least 5 open tabs, each one with a different word. This is worse than TVTropes could ever be at this point. This is routine for me now, and it's frustrating. I feel like I know nothing about the English language. It's demotivating.

    I just learned that my body doesn't react well to eye drops. Side effects: Nausea, dizziness, and lots and lots of sweating.
