Happy new year!

This month marks my one-year anniversary of returning to my beloved Galactic Civilizations as its lead designer.  And since then, we've made a lot of changes much to the joy and angst of many galactic conquerors.

Unintended Consequences

With the announcement of the third expansion pack to Galactic Civilizations III imminent, this serves as a good time to look at where we stand today.

For the past year, I've been going through and weeding out improvements, events ...

Are you glad it's Friday? We've had some nice skins come in this week in the galleries, but today we're featuring one of the latest Master skins. Nuetron II was created by don5318 and has some amazing details in the design. You'll definitely want to grab this one for your library of skins!

I just got my new PC set up.  First new one in 3 years and it's a monster.



I mostly got it for the Core i9 which has 18 cores.  The reason for this is, basically, I compile a lot.  Most of my programming involves AI coding and that means doing lots of recompiling and running.  I highly recommend 18 cores for most people as it's wasted.

The other reason I wanted so many cores is for Nitrous/Cider work which is Stardock's new engine.  I want to make sure that Ash...

The Intro

Let me start with a very, very important disclaimer:

I hate computers.

Well, more specifically, computers hate me. Within a week of joining the team here at Stardock, the guys in IT already knew my name and had to come down to fix computer issues multiple times. I also had a motherboard burst into flames on me once (STILL trying to figure that one out) and smoked a power supply (these occurred within months of each other), so I’m pretty sure our PC overlords have it out ...

Hey guys. Who is into VR?

 

I recently set up 2 rigs for VR. One with Oculus Rift, the other with the HTC Vive.

 

I'd be interested in any talk, info, discussion on either system, or maybe any other options for VR.

 

Pros, cons, what have you.  Got anything to say?

I need to do this, no matter what (he may not like my doing this due to pride).

A well known member of this skinning community in the recent past needs lots of help from wherever he can get it. He is about to lose his car that he uses to make money driving for Uber and Lyft (because it has broke down and he cannot afford to get it fixed). He is about to lose his computer that he desperately needs to earn money doing graphics designs for various music companies (but they only pay him peanuts)....

I have 8 ram slots, and a quad channel board. I can't get the system to boot with any more than 2 ram sticks installed.  6 empty ram slots just bothers me to no end.
