  1. Definitely gonna read all the way through in the next few days, just able to skim at the moment. Somebody did release a small utility on Halomaps a few years back to make your own recordings in-game and save them as separate files which would be accessible through Opensauce I believe. Would be cool to have a tool compatible with stock CE, if that's what you're talking about doing.
  2. Damn, Infinity takes me back to my good ol' days of just fucking around with AI and cinematics for hours. This looks really nice man.
  3. Looks cool. Maybe Spartans have better evade/sprint uses or recovery? Human stamina and all that.
  4. Played a bit today and was super disappointed in the ranked playlist options. Team hardcore and invasion? The fuck, are you kidding me? Where's doubles? Where's standard slayer ranked? That said, does run smooth as hell and is more fun than on console, even if I'm still screaming at the screen. Join hands with me in seance as we summon it. The time is now.
  5. I honestly didn't know it was already on PC, installing now. More psyched for H3 tbh. Gonna get ranked, gonna do some stuff in H1, gonna bring it all back baby.
  6. I would flat-out fall over dead if we had an H3 modding kit for H3PC.
  7. Is this As7?

    1. Pfhunkie


      Yes, sorry for taking so long to get back lol

    2. TCK


      No prob and likewise haha.

  8. What IS on my mind? Is it consequential?

    1. WaeV


      It might not be consequential, but thinking about recursion too hard certainly feels weird.

  9. Congrats bruh. On this same note, I keep hearing from the GM of our store how he plans to make me GM after he leaves. Just a plan as long as it isn't happening but we expect it to happen.
  10. Bruh I'd play with you but we work opposite shifts usually. I'm off at like 11 most nights, 1 AM on Friday nights (Saturday mornings, whatever). What do you work Wednesdays?
  11. Devil's advocate: don't install either app on your phone because they both want all your info; but that's just me being an old stick in the mud.
  12. I mean, true, I guess I didn't take that as applying to the whole video. If that's all they meant then they definitely made a smooth and entertaining video to explain it.
  13. Very interesting vid and fun to watch; but "we will never be able to leave our local group."? ...until we discover something we didn't even know existed until the second its existence became apparent, right? I love science but you have to admit at some level it's a never-ending Oxyclean commercial. "But wait, there's more!" "We have a few billion years to explore our local group." And at the rate technology has progressed over only the last hundred years, there's no chance AT ALL that we could uncover something profound about physics we didn't know before? I mean, shit, billions of years in humanity's future? We can't even comprehend that, let alone imagine what our technology or science will be like at that point. That's enough time for humans to evolve to see in radar waves, then evolve to "hear" in infrared, then evolve to breathe in both gaseous and liquid environments, then... you get my point. This is like if the Romans made a video debunking tanks, imo. Just my drunk opinion. Yeah, I know, "but TCK you only post when you're drunk." Well, it's either that or I never post, which is it? Actually don't answer that...
  14. If you'd truly like to talk about this, I'm sure we could have a discussion. At the moment I am once again pretty drunk and not looking to think too hard, but I did want to say that my "emotional" outbursts are only as emotional as you perceive them - I'm not emotionally invested in anything on the internet and all my remarks have stemmed from what seemed to me (as well as Weps and two people who have not publicly stated an opinion, so I will keep their names out of it) to be happening in any debate with you, which is that you will not engage the argument directly and instead spend much of your posts nitpicking the outskirts of a discussion. I don't get mad about it; I just don't enjoy it. If you'll notice, the post you linked to begins with, "I genuinely am not trying to be aggressive here," and ends with, "I like you as a member." Those were meant to convey tone. @WaeV I'm glad you said it. I didn't want to be the one to say it so I led with that very neutral, "I don't know why..." I actually wrote a small paper on it sophomore year, and tried to show how it's essentially a campaign.
  15. It was reached after your insistence on digging your heels deeper and deeper into particulars and semantics without making any other rebuttal. The cause of that seems to be your assumption that your arguments need no further defense past simply being stated. Notice how your first instinct is an attempt at belittling me for using colloquial vocabulary (despite the fact that it conveys meaning just the same as if I had taken a refresher course on statistics and whipped out my textbook), yet you make no assertions to contest a valid method of developing probability. All you contest is the order of the sarcastic example, and you're incorrect even there, but I was pretty drunk so maybe I was unclear by saying "observation" twice. You witness a bear shitting in the woods. This happens several times. You never see a bear shit in the city because, well, bears don't live in cities. Someone asks you, "where is bearshit most often found?" You would answer what? We are built to develop a sense of the probability of anything we've experienced happening again. The internet is a great tool that can give your experiences a global breadth. The downfall of it is when people form emotional attachment to their conclusions, leading them to cling to obsolete conclusions (either through confirmation bias or outright denial) rather than adapting those conclusions or forming new ones. I often witness women at work stand and talk to each other when they should be doing something else. In my memory there have been 2 female employees to whom this did not apply, and 1 male employee to whom it did. You likely presume (based on your own developed sense of probability) that someone who expresses a desire to group people by certain traits is experiencing a bigoted state. It is my absolute assurance to you that no emotion is involved in (or arises from) my conclusion that women (on average) are more focused on interpersonal dynamics (jargon for "gossip and drama") in the workplace than men, and I neither feel nor exercise any emotion toward either them or the situation when I must (as their manager) ask them to return to their work. Now, we keep employees who want to do their job, and if they are standing and talking then I generally know that they are simply involuntarily distracted. If an employee has reached the point where I can tell that they are not experiencing an involuntary distraction, but rather seeking distraction (which usually is not in the form of socialization but in the form of literally standing doing nothing, a trait that has manifested equally frequently in men and women in my experience), I realize that they do not want to do their job and I simply fire them. There is no point in mixing feelings with business. In addition, there have been 8 women whose actions have at one point or more resulted in dramatic or emotional circumstances which required managerial intervention. There have been 4 men in the same vein. The ratio here is closer but you must also consider that we employ about three to four times as many men as women (not by discriminate selection but by applicant availability) which is a fact that really elevates much of this. I mentioned using the internet to widen the scope of our experiential understanding. It stands to reason that I've read others whose experiences match mine; but I actively seek opposition to my presumptions. So far I cannot find any to these that is not emotional.
