Dating sims up

Dating sims (or dating simulations) are a video game subgenre of simulation games, usually Japanese, with romantic elements. The most common objective of dating sims is to date, usually choosing from among several characters, and to achieve a romantic relationship.

Looking for a fantasy draft league? (Xbox)
Starting up a fantasy draft league. Simulation gameplay, but this is not a sim league. Rules are pretty laid back, but enough to try and ensure everyone has a good experience.
The tentative date for the draft is Saturday October 3rd @ 11AM EST. (Subject to change).
Draft will NOT begin until we have a full 32 users, and if this occurs before draft day, we will proceed with a pause draft until the scheduled draft day arrives.

2020.09.24 16:37 roboto_jones Built my First PC as 31st Birthday to Myself - My Full Experience : Specs, Purchase (from Australia), 7 hours live-streamed Build, NO POST, Troubleshoot, & Lesson - Super Long Post!

Photos of my FIRST PC Build! & a photo of me with the laptop it's replacing!
Story:
Initially I wanted to buy a pre-built PC for my 31st birthday but after reading some comments and posts (especially here on buildapc), I decided to build one myself - to save some $$$ but to also as a learning experience; oh boy did I learn some lessons.
The PC was built to replace my aging 2013 ASUS G750JX.
Primary use is for Gaming - WoW: Shadowlands, Cyberpunk 2077, Halo : Infinite, & Assassin's Creed : Norway Simulator. No Microsoft Flight Sim here. Secondary for Work - Autodesk Revit, Rhinoceros 5, 3DS Max, SketchUp, & Vray. Occassionaly for Streaming and Video editting - Twitch Studio, Adobe Rush.
After watching/reading a lot of guides, parts selected, and parts arrived - I decided to live-stream my entire build: YouTube link of my stream reduced from 7 hours to 1 hour.
I also thought I'd share my experience with you guys by making a SUPER LONG post.
So like days when games guides were giant TXT files from GameFAQS, I divided this into CHAPTERS!

Chapters:
A001 - PC SpecsA002 - Specs Lesson / Alternates OptionsB001 - Budget Info & Store Choice - from an Australian buyer perspectiveB002 - Spec vs Price Comparison - at time of purchase on August 22B003 - Delivery & Arrival date of Packages - Guess which package arrived the quickestC001 - Build Guides - some tutorials that I found usefulD001 - My 7 hours Build - Live Streamed!D002 - NO POST! & Troubleshooting - with the help from one of my viewers.E001 - Post-Build & General Lessons LearntE002 - Next Upgrades Selection & WishlistF001 - Special Thanks & Shameless Self-Promo
Just Ctrl+F and search the code "AXXX" for that specific chapter and you'll jump right to it!

// A001 - PC Specs // PC Part Picker list : https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/rXzGWb


// A002 - Specs Lesson / Alternates Options //
I won't go to Part-by-Part because honestly, I'm no expert - I'll link to a guide if I find one. These are just some of the things I noted after my build.
Choosing your Parts Lessons / Tips :

Alternate Options - Some parts I considering as alternate to fit a lower budget:


At time of purchase, the 30 GPUs Series were still rumored, with only leaked images. So I went with an RX 5700 XT because it felt like it was the best Bang for the Buck and that it would be a longer wait if I wanted the Nvidia 30 series or AMD 6000 series.
If time is not a constraint for you, I'd say it's definitely worth waiting for the new GPUs.

// B001 - Budget Info & Store Choice //
I initially wanted to buy a Pre-Built PC but after deciding to build my own, I just used the initial budget for my parts.
Being in Australia, a giant island away from everyone else, parts are more expensive. Most tech reviews will mention the USD prices and unfortunately it's not a 1:1 currency conversion - so set expectations accordingly.
I specifically chose these stores because I've made purchases from there before and they're local.
I wanted to order locally to avoid any international shipping and direct customer service if I faced any issues. I also just wanted to help out local stores as much as I could during this pandemic season - eventhough business for e-retailers are booming right now.
Other Australian stores worth checking out are: Mwave & PLE & SKYCOMP

// B002 - Spec vs Price Comparison //
A quick schedule I made for each parts by the selected AU Stores I've purchased from:
BOLD items are the lowest price found. Italics items were sold-out / pre-order listed.Prices shown were from purchase on August 25.Price listed as Australian Dollars - AUD$Price with (*) means the place I bought the part from.

Part / Store PCCG Scorptec Centrecom PCByte
CPU : AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 529 525 519* 525
MoBo : MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK WIFI ATX AM4 389 389 389* 389
MEMORY : Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 139 129 119* 149

TOTAL PRICE PER STORE: 2471 2434 2383 2295
Standard Delivery: 21 Did Not Check 0 - Free! 10
TOTAL PRICE OF LOWEST & AVAILABLE PARTS = AUD$2296
By the cost comparison, PCByte was the best place to purchase IF they had all the stock - which sadly wasn't the case.
So I ended purchasing the parts from PCCG, Centrecom, PCByte separately, which the total parts costs was $1 higher than the total at PCByte. The most parts I ordered from was at CentreCom for their free delivery. PCCG was the only place that had the Case & PSU, so I ordered it from there as well.
AS A TEST, I ordered another 'Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18' from AmazonUS for $99.20 + $16.50. To see how fast it would arrive and 32GB RAM would be great to have. Boy oh boy, the $4 savings than the price at CentreCom was not worth it.
TOTAL COST INCLUDING DELIVERY = AUD$2,442.70

// B003 - Delivery & Arrival date of Packages//
A summary from Order Date to Shipment Arrival for each store:

One thing to note for my orders with CentreCom & PCByte, I decided to pay via Bank Transfer to save from the 1-2% surcharge on payments made via PayPal or Credit Card but then it took those stores time to verify the payment has been received before shipping the order out.
PC Byte was quick to process the payment, only requiring a Transaction Receipt to verify. CentreCom took much longer which resulted in the slower shipment than the AmazonUS from Whitestown, Indiana, USA to Melbourne, Australia.


// C001 - Build Guides //
The number 1 that helped me was RTFM - READ THE FRIENDLY MANUAL. (Thanks Jay) Most of things you need to know on the part and how to install is mentioned in in their respective manual. There are general information that applies to each part but they can vary slightly from different manufacturers - so read carefully.
Again, I won't go through part-by-part guides. Just some guides & information that I found useful.
Here's some of the tutorial videos that helped me with my build:

// D001 - My 7 hours Build - That I Live Streamed! //
Here's an edited down version of the stream from 7 hours to 1 hour & minus the few times my recording dropped for some reason.
So I did watch all the guides and videos listed previous chapter. Also, read the manuals of most of the products online before even receiving the parcels. Still, I was a nervous a mess!
I did buy a whole set of tiny screw bits for $19 because it has that weird bendy bit for hard to reach spots. 100% not required at all, definitely an overkill on my part.
A simple breakdown of the video, this is NOT a guide - just a summary and some handy tips I recalled:
  1. Installed as much parts as you could onto the MoBo - the CPU, RAM, & NVME SSD.
    1. Make sure the CPU is placed oriented correctly!
    2. Check the RAM is installed in the right order! RAM may require some force!
    3. Make sure you got the right standoff for your NVME SSD. Don't leave one below in the middle of the NVME as it may damage it.
  2. Prepared the AIO CPU Cooler (Corsair H100X) - made sure the right brackets & mounting brackets were in place.
    1. Read the manual!
    2. Don't touch face of the cooler! Leave the cover on.
  3. Installed the fans onto the radiator - in a pull configuration. Just to make the fans visible honestly.
  4. Installed the radiator onto the radiator mounting bracket from case (NZXT H510).
    1. Check your case's manual!
  5. Recording Dropped! Prepared my case before I placed my MoBo.
    1. Install the IO Shield. Mine is pre-installed, so don't need to worry about it.
    2. Checked the right standoffs are in-place to receive my ATX MoBo. DON'T leave any unnecessary standoff on the case, it may DAMAGE your MoBo.
  6. Placed my MoBo into the case.
    1. Angle it slight for an easier insert.
    2. Screw it place. Don't force the screw! As long as it's secure, it's sufficient.
  7. Recording Returns! Installed my AIO Cooler (Corsair H100X).
    1. It has this weird earing mounting thing that hooks onto the existing bracket on the board.
    2. Make sure the logo/face of the AIO is oriented accordingly!
  8. Installed the radiator mount back into the case.
  9. Prepared my Fully Modular PSU - Again, RTFM - Read The Flippin' Manual!
    1. Installed the needed Cables.
    2. This where I should've installed my cable extensions, if I had any.
  10. Installed the PSU onto the case.
  11. Make sure to orient it correct! Mine was with the fan blowing to the bottom of the case.
  12. Took out the Hard Disk Drive Cage & screwed the HDD into the cage.
  13. In hindsight, should've done this first before the PSU as the cables got in my way.
  14. Your case may vary! Check your manual.
  15. CABLES TIME! Checked the orientation of where each cable would go from the back of the case and to the front.
  16. Again, read the manual!
  17. A good thing about my case (NZXT H510) is that the Front Panel connector comes in a handy single-piece bundle that makes it easy to connect.
  18. Connected all the MoBo cables. Always check the orientation! Look at the empty keys slot, any square face indents, clips, etc. Be careful!
  19. Installed my GPU (ASUS TUF RX 5700 XT) - it is a hefty boi.
  20. The GPU I chose has a 6pin+8pin PCIe Cable bit which confused me for a bit.
  21. I should've - READ THE MANUAL!
  22. Double Checked everything is securely installed
  23. Plugged into Power & Switch the PSU to On
  24. GPU LED turned on.
  25. No weird noises - thankfully!
  26. Pressed the Power Button AND...
// D002 - NO POST! & Troubleshooting - with the help from one of my viewers. //
NO POST! - Which sank my heart instantly.
Shoutout to one of my viewers, haxnetTech, who told me to look at the LED on the MoBo next to the RAM, which highlighted "DRAM" and basically guide me through the troubleshoot.
Because I had 4 sticks of RAM installed. The issue could've been a lot of things : RAM sticks might not have been seated securely, a faulty RAM stick or multiple of them, OR faulty Motherboard.
So troubleshooting began as follows:
  1. Removed all 4 RAM sticks.
  2. Reseat all 4 RAM. NO POST.
  3. Removed all 4 RAM again.
    1. Separated each pair based on their serial numbers - CentreCom pair and the Amazon pair.
  4. Installed the CentreCom pair in the A2 & B2. YAY! POST!
  5. Installed the Amazon pair in the A1 & B1. NO POST!
  6. Removed all the RAM and placed the Amazon pair in A2 & B2. NO POST!
  7. I did test each RAM individually in A2 and found only ONE of the Amazon pair was faulty.
    1. Because I wanted to return it, obviously I returned it as a pair.
  8. Removed the Amazon Pair and reinstalled the CentreCom pair. YAY! POST!
  9. Proceeded to install my Windows.
    1. Made sure to install the OS in the NVME SSD, NOT the HDD.
  10. After 7 hours live-stream, thanked my stream.
  11. Ate a Chicken Kebab.
My initial plan was to have 32GB Memory (4x 8GB) and having to return a pair, I ended up running off 16GB for a while.
I did have a concern that maybe I had issues with my A1 & B1 RAM slots on my MoBo, so I ended up ordering another pair 32GB Memory (2x 16GB) to fill out my remaining slot and test it out. Worst case, I'll just run off the A2 & B2 with the 2x 16GB pair.
MEMORY : Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2X16GB) DDR4 3600 (PC4-28800) C18 1.35V Desktop Memory BlackCOST : AUD$222.00 + $15.80 Delivery - from SKYCOMP. The only Australian store that had stock.DELIVERY : Ordered - 08.09.2020. Arrived - 14.09.2020. 6 days.
RAM arrived, installed the 2x 16GB memory in A2 & B2. Installed the CentreCom 2x 8GB pair in A1 & B1. TADAA! I am officially running at 48GB Memory.

// E001 - Post-Build & General Lessons Learnt //
I spent most of the time after my live-stream tidying the cables at the back of the PC and setting up my usual software & games.
Tweezered Zip-tied all the loose cables as neatly as I could.
I did try and do some basic overclocking with some guides on YouTube and Guru3D recommendations BUT I don't think I will include it in here as I am not that well-versed on the topic.

So here are some lessons I learnt from my build, aside from some of the tips I mentioned in the previous Chapters:

// E002 - Next Upgrades Selection & Wishlist //
PC Building is an addiction, you'll immediately look at things that to upgrade your perfectly functioning setup. I am officially one of them.
I even made a schedule of my wishlist and store prices - in hopes that if there was ever I sale and huge price drop (in Australian Dollars AUD$) :

PARTS PCCG SCORPTEC CENTRECOM PCBYTE SKYCOMP MWAVE PLE
SSD STORAGE: Gigabyte AORUS NVMe Gen4 1 TB 329 319 299 299 296 329
RGB Case Fans: Corsair LL120 63 CFM 120 mm Fans 179 159 159 149 157 159 159
OR Lian Li SL120 119 139 Not Found Not Found Not Found 139 Not Found
3080 GPU: MSI GeForce RTX3080 VENTUS OC 1379 1379 1379 1379 1379
OR Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 10 GB AORUS MASTER 1639 1639 1639 1639
1440p Monitor: AOC CQ32G2E 599 499 499 499 477 499 525
OR ViewSonic VX3258-2KPC-MHD 499 499 499 508 499 499
With my type of work, high memory GPUs are great but a 3090 is ridiculously expensive of an expense - so a 3080 would be nice step up. I am happy enough with my current GPU to wait for next generation, maybe a 3080 Super or a 6000 Series ST model.
Reason why I included the monitors is because the current monitor setup provided by Work is a decent 1440 60hz monitor that's been colour calibrated. Great for work, not so much for gaming.
After my build, I won't be buying upgrades anytime soon. But hey, you can't have a dream without a goal.

2020.09.24 14:53 EggMan28 Launching animated X-Wing and Imperial Shuttle

More info at https://flightsim-squadron.itch.io/x-wing/devlog/181221/animated-x-wing-and-imperial-shuttle-launch
I've wanted to have animation for the aircraft released to date and have been working over many nights with kingdmac25 to make it happen as part of the extended "Flight Sim Squadron" fleet.
It has taken a lot of painstaking work / trial and error due to the lack of documentation of the SDK for animation, but we are pleased to announce our breakthrough.
Here are versions of the X-Wing and Imperial Shuttle that has been rigged up to have their respective animations play when you trigger the landing gear action.
We are testing offering these at what we think is a modest price of AUD 5 each to test if there is demand for them at that price. If the demand is supportive, we would work to release more
Squadron Launch Price Offer: To celebrate our launch and commemorate the release of "Star Wars Squadron" on Oct 2 (which we''ve pre-ordered and can't wait to play with VR and HOTAS), we'll offer both ships for the one price of AUD 5.
After Nov 2 (when Cyberpunk 2077 launches, which we're in high anticipation for as well), the offer price ends and the ships will be AUD 5 each (if we are still allowed to provide them).
Early Sci-Fi Mods Donor Get it Free !
To thank those who donated AUD5 or more for the early Sci-Fi Mods ships, we are pleased to offer you a copy of these ships at no charge. Please email [email protected].com if you are interested (we're not going to assume all are), provide a screenshot of the name you donated as and we'll reply back with instructions to access them.
We will continue to make base ships free and continue to grow that fleet based on interest but we think that there might be a market for premium ones where we have put more time and effort into them so this is an exercise to test if we are right.
Some test flight videos:

PS Please bear with us as we try to work through this. There's only 2 of us working on this before / after hours to make this happen and appreciate your support.

2020.09.24 14:53 amdv1217 Supervised or unsupervised visits

Posting on different forums to get opinions and advise on my situation.
Hi everyone, please buckle in.. this is a long one.
A few months ago I ended my 5 year on and off relationship for the final time(tried to work through his infidelities but in the end he continued). I have sole guardianship of my 3yo child that he signed over to me because of the “business” that he is in.
A little back story on us. We met at a place we worked at, I was doing administrative work and he was a heavy equipment operator. After we had established the relationship he left and found a better paying job doing the same thing elsewhere. When I found out I was pregnant we were both elated and everything seemed great. Fast forward a year later, baby was here happy and healthy I was on mat leave caring for her while he was still going to work. It was at around 6 months when I started noticing a change, and at 11 months I kicked him out for his partying and cheating ways. Our child was living with me full time, he came over to see our child really whenever he felt like and he asked to watch them overnight New Years(2017-2018) I said yes, and he took them. The next morning I went to go pick our child up ( he was living with his mother at this point ) and when I arrived his mother had informed me that he had left the night before and still hadn’t returned. I was upset but not surprised, I still to this day don’t know where he went.
He came to visit whenever, not consistently and sometimes took our child to his mothers house to visit but always came back with them. Fall of 2018 don’t ask me why, but we rekindled our relationship, guess the mother in me longed for our child to have a family. He was still living with his mother because I wasn’t ready for him to move back just yet, we had a lot of work to do before I could trust him again. We would go on weekly dates and the flame was slowly starting to grow again and he would also see our child on a weekly basis and sleep over a night or two. It wasn’t until summer 2019 when he announced that he was going to another town for a job opportunity which really had me shaken, ultimately he convinced me it was for our family and he would be making a lot of money. I asked him what he would be doing and he said working with a biohazardous cleaning company. Weird, and totally not what I ever imagined him doing but I supported him because he was very excited about it and just advised him to be extra careful. Because it was in a town that could only be accessed by ferry he said he would be visiting one week off and one week on. At first he was, one week on and one week off, then it turned into two weeks on and one week off. After about 2-3 months of that it turned into, I kid you not, three and a half weeks on and coming home for 2-3 nights. You ask me why I didn’t end it sooner, I was comfortable and he was bringing in very good money. Spoiling me and our child, he faced-timed to see our child about once or twice a week but I always kept him updated via photos and text and I suppose that’s the reason why he wasn’t really feeling like he was missing out..
Fast forward to Father’s Day of this year, at this point I was suspecting something was seriously wrong. He was only visiting once or twice a month for only the day and my suspicions were confirmed when I hacked into his phone. Phone numbers upon phone numbers of women some of which he met on seeking arrangements some others at strip clubs. I spoke with as many as I could and 99% were super sweet( I would never harp on other women for my man cheating) all except, you guessed it , the one he had a serious relationship with for over a year( that’s a whole other story I won’t get into).
The women I had spoken to that were super kind confirmed my suspicion that he was indeed involved in illegal activities and even had one of them rent out an apartment in her name that he ended up bailing on leaving her with a $4000+ bill. I ended it right then and there.
Up until that moment he had face timed our child randomly, but after the relationship ended we set up a goodnight FaceTime so he would see our child. I also had my lawyer draft up a custody agreement, he had signed over sole guardianship of our child to me even though I had told him he was more than welcome to speak to a lawyer.. he told me there was no point and signed. I was shocked but id be lying if I said I wasn’t relieved as well.
He came to visit last month to go shopping for things for our child. I don’t remember how the subject came up but he mentioned something along the lines of if I ever get a new boyfriend that he would be able to find out everything about him and keep and eye on him. I was scared, not because I had a boyfriend, but the things he was saying. I started recording the conversation on my phone, where I live it’s legal to record a conversation you’re involved in without the other person knowing. Before I recorded partially, he mentioned he had hired a “pook” to place a tracking device on a vehicle.. I recorded.. when he said he had been tracking “his competition” and he named a specific gang ... also people he and his friend had beef with just to keep an eye on them. At that moment he received a phone call and it was his friend, my ex then proceeded to tell him “yes I’m watching the app right now it says he’s at ____ store” I’ll give you the log in information”
He dropped us off at home and left back to the town that night. I’m scared, and worried but also trying to convince myself that he would never endanger his child or me like this.
Literally, I kid you not, the next night I try and FaceTime him to see our child and no answer which was sort of unusual because he was not one to miss the face times(Except once that he mixed alcohol with lean I think and slept 24 hours , he was upset with me when I told him it was the next day and also missed when it was his “co workers” birthday, his phone died before 730 pm)
I get an email from a strange account the next day.

I forgot to mention, because of the pandemic We are moving to that same town he is in. I live with my parents and my stepfather works in that area as well just a different city. The only reason I was here was because of my work but since covid I am no longer working so I was okay with the idea of moving with my parents to that town my ex is in if it made everyone’s lives easier.

Apart of me wants to allow him the freedom to see our child unsupervised he has never been violent around her and loves her dearly. But another part of me is worried about what he is involved in, he wasn’t arrested I don’t believe or convicted of anything but i’m absolutely terrified and I don’t know if it is reasonable of me to be.
I don’t know where he lives, who he lives with what he does. My parents and family say no unsupervised visits, my lawyer says it’s really up to me as I have sole guardianship which I understand. But I’m also scared of my ex’s reaction when I tell him what I’m thinking with the supervised visits. He’s very much a hot head and had even used threatening language with me, which I told my lawyer about right away. My lawyer said if I feel in immediate danger I should phone the police obviously but I didn’t because I knew he said it out of anger.... but at the same time you never know what anyone is capable of...
Should I allow him access to her knowing what he is kind of involved in? Or should I follow the advice of my parents and family.. Im seriously losing sleep over this ... any advice would be appreciated 😔
Thank you everyone, stay safe.

2020.09.24 11:38 Gr0Bill So, can someone tell me what happend with Dr.Apeis ?

I was making a video about the story of YandereSim ( in french, because there is still no video about it in this language ). I talk briefly about Dr Apeis and LL and after finishing a huge portion of my montage, I came here to be sure i was still up to date about the whole thing. It seems that something is shady with Dr.Apeis and LL.

What happend ?

2020.09.24 09:24 amdv1217 [Canada] supervised or unsupervised visits ?

Hi everyone, please buckle in.. this is a long one.
A few months ago I ended my 5 year on and off relationship for the final time(tried to work through his infidelities but in the end he continued). I have sole guardianship of my 3yo child that he signed over to me because of the “business” that he is in.
A little back story on us. We met at a place we worked at, I was doing administrative work and he was a heavy equipment operator. After we had established the relationship he left and found a better paying job doing the same thing elsewhere. When I found out I was pregnant we were both elated and everything seemed great. Fast forward a year later, baby was here happy and healthy I was on mat leave caring for her while he was still going to work. It was at around 6 months when I started noticing a change, and at 11 months I kicked him out for his partying and cheating ways. Our child was living with me full time, he came over to see our child really whenever he felt like and he asked to watch them overnight New Years(2017-2018) I said yes, and he took them. The next morning I went to go pick our child up ( he was living with his mother at this point ) and when I arrived his mother had informed me that he had left the night before and still hadn’t returned. I was upset but not surprised, I still to this day don’t know where he went.
He came to visit whenever, not consistently and sometimes took our child to his mothers house to visit but always came back with them. Fall of 2018 don’t ask me why, but we rekindled our relationship, guess the mother in me longed for our child to have a family. He was still living with his mother because I wasn’t ready for him to move back just yet, we had a lot of work to do before I could trust him again. We would go on weekly dates and the flame was slowly starting to grow again and he would also see our child on a weekly basis and sleep over a night or two. It wasn’t until summer 2019 when he announced that he was going to another town for a job opportunity which really had me shaken, ultimately he convinced me it was for our family and he would be making a lot of money. I asked him what he would be doing and he said working with a biohazardous cleaning company. Weird, and totally not what I ever imagined him doing but I supported him because he was very excited about it and just advised him to be extra careful. Because it was in a town that could only be accessed by ferry he said he would be visiting one week off and one week on. At first he was, one week on and one week off, then it turned into two weeks on and one week off. After about 2-3 months of that it turned into, I kid you not, three and a half weeks on and coming home for 2-3 nights. You ask me why I didn’t end it sooner, I was comfortable and he was bringing in very good money. Spoiling me and our child, he faced-timed to see our child about once or twice a week but I always kept him updated via photos and text and I suppose that’s the reason why he wasn’t really feeling like he was missing out..
Fast forward to Father’s Day of this year, at this point I was suspecting something was seriously wrong. He was only visiting once or twice a month for only the day and my suspicions were confirmed when I hacked into his phone. Phone numbers upon phone numbers of women some of which he met on seeking arrangements some others at strip clubs. I spoke with as many as I could and 99% were super sweet( I would never harp on other women for my man cheating) all except, you guessed it , the one he had a serious relationship with for over a year( that’s a whole other story I won’t get into).
The women I had spoken to that were super kind confirmed my suspicion that he was indeed involved in illegal activities and even had one of them rent out an apartment in her name that he ended up bailing on leaving her with a $4000+ bill. I ended it right then and there.
Up until that moment he had face timed our child randomly, but after the relationship ended we set up a goodnight FaceTime so he would see our child. I also had my lawyer draft up a custody agreement, he had signed over sole guardianship of our child to me even though I had told him he was more than welcome to speak to a lawyer.. he told me there was no point and signed. I was shocked but id be lying if I said I wasn’t relieved as well.
He came to visit last month to go shopping for things for our child. I don’t remember how the subject came up but he mentioned something along the lines of if I ever get a new boyfriend that he would be able to find out everything about him and keep and eye on him. I was scared, not because I had a boyfriend, but the things he was saying. I started recording the conversation on my phone, where I live it’s legal to record a conversation you’re involved in without the other person knowing. Before I recorded partially, he mentioned he had hired a “pook” to place a tracking device on a vehicle.. I recorded.. when he said he had been tracking “his competition” and he named a specific gang ... also people he and his friend had beef with just to keep an eye on them. At that moment he received a phone call and it was his friend, my ex then proceeded to tell him “yes I’m watching the app right now it says he’s at ____ store” I’ll give you the log in information”
He dropped us off at home and left back to the town that night. I’m scared, and worried but also trying to convince myself that he would never endanger his child or me like this.
Literally, I kid you not, the next night I try and FaceTime him to see our child and no answer which was sort of unusual because he was not one to miss the face times(Except once that he mixed alcohol with lean I think and slept 24 hours , he was upset with me when I told him it was the next day and also missed when it was his “co workers” birthday, his phone died before 730 pm)
I get an email from a strange account the next day.
“ I’m sorry, drug enforcement seized my car and my phones. I’ll be getting a new SIM card and phone soon”
I forgot to mention, because of the pandemic We are moving to that same town he is in. I live with my parents and my stepfather works in that area as well just a different city.

2020.09.24 07:19 DriplessEarth University and "Roomates Girlfriend?"

Hi everyone!
I've been playing Sims 4 University and I have two questions
  1. Sims will sometimes come over and be titled "Roomates Girlfriend/Party/Friend" but then that person will come back and no longer be dating/acting like they know them. Do these Sims not actually know the other Sims in the dorm?
  2. Does anyone know how to stop from failing so easily? I do all the homework and projects and will still end up with bad grades.

2020.09.24 03:22 browhyustaring Unique romcom idea

I just woke up from a nap and it kind of just popped into my head and I though it would be pretty funny, so basically two friends would be isekaid while playing a dating sim (into the games world) and get spawned as the main characters friends, and all they have to do to return to their world is help the main character "finish the game" AKA start dating one of the heroines. It should be pretty simple, except the game's main character would be either option A) a total dickhead to everyone around him, or option B) socially inept and unable to talk to girls. Either way the two friends would have to work behind the scenes to make the games mc finish the game. I know its not very descriptive but goddamn it sounds funny as hell to me. There's not really a point to this post I just wanted to share it.

2020.09.24 00:52 quigukipromqueen Downtown outings glitch?

I've been experiencing a weird bug with my downtown outings on TS2 Ultimate Collection recently and wanted to see if anyone else had experienced it before I started rifling through my mods folder.
While playing as Don Lothario, I get a call from Dina Caliente inviting me on a date Downtown. I say yes and wait for the option to choose a location. Before I can choose, I get a pop-up in the corner to the effect of "You better get a move on before you leave your date waiting!" Finally I get the choice to choose a lot. As soon as the taxi arrives, a pop-up with Dina appears, saying "I can't believe you stood me up! Don't talk to me again!" Don then hops in the taxi and arrives at the community lot by himself.
The bug is the same whether I'm invited on a date or invite someone else - the game claims that I stood them up before I even have a chance to leave for the community lot. It seems to only affect dates, as I had a separate Sim go on a group outing with no issues. I also have no issues inviting a Sim over and then asking them on a date in person, or with asking a Sim in the same household on a date. I do have some mods installed, but the only one I think could possibly be related is ACR.

2020.09.23 22:33 FPSGamer48 Moon Knight #31: Cat’s Cradle

The moment Greer and I step into her apartment, I feel the hairs on the back of my neck raise. It’s all too familiar: the leather couch, the coffee table, and even the photo of Greer with a small orange cat. More importantly though, this mere sight kicks Steven out of control, once more thrusting me back into the driver’s seat of Marc Spector.
“Cute cat,” I comment, pointing at the frame.
“Ca-Oh! The photo! Yeah, yeah, that was Mr Meowyagi. I had him back when I was with William in Chicago,” she replies.
“Oh...I’m sorry for your loss,” I note. Dammit Marc, after all that work Steven put into this date, now you’re just gonna find a way to fuck it up? Tonight had gone so well: almost two and half hours of just talking between Steven and her, with me only interrupting twice. We even managed to keep the other personalities silent during the whole event!
“No, no, Mr. Meowyagi didn’t die. He was my husband’s cat from his college years. He actually stayed at home to save money, so when he passed, I figured it’d be best for Mr. Meowyagi to return to his parents’s house,” she explains. I nod softly.
“So, Steven,” she says with a smirk, “would you like a coffee or something? Just so we can...you know…talk a bit more?”
“Um…sure...er...if that isn’t too much trouble, of course,” I say, fumbling through whatever niceties I can think of. My mind is kind of blank at this point: I think she wants us. The signs she’s giving off are like giant roadside billboards! And here I am, the one she hadn’t even grown to particularly fancy!
“No trouble at all,” she responds swiftly before heading to the kitchen. I wipe sweat from my forehead. Dammit, Grant, get your ass out here! I just have to force myself to switch, right? Maybe witness some new trauma? It seemed to work to get me here, after all. Looking around, I scan through the photos she has around the apartment. One of them, I notice, is of her with a black teenager, and at that moment, I feel the switch.
“So, Doctor Nelson, why don’t you remind me what we were talking about before your feline friend distracted me?” asks Steven with a hearty chuckle. Meanwhile, I continue to focus my attention on that photo: it’s that kid. Midnight Man’s son.
“I believe you were explaining how I was the only real superhero,” she laughs in reply.
“Hey, Steven, ask her about the kid,” I suggest.
“No, that’s gonna ruin the fucking moment. Now, you’re the one who put me here, right? So let me do what I do best,” retorts my smooth-talking alter ego before returning to focus on his earlier conversation with Greer, “Yes, that’s right. Now tell me, Dr. Nelson, who saves the most lives per day?”
“Police?”
“Haha, funny joke, but no. Think about it a little harder,” he suggests, placing his elbows firmly on the counter and looking deep into her eyes. For a moment, I can feel the tension fill the room before she turns back to her coffeemaker.
“Physicians?”
“There you go! Now, follow me,” he gestures as he talks the cup of coffee from her hand, “thank you. Now, those physicians, they can’t also focus on creating their medications and their treatments, right? They’re just the deliverers, after all.”
“Well, I wouldn’t say it’s that sim-.”
“No, no, let’s not take away your achievements for the sake of aggrandizing the front-liners. To provide their treatments, their cures, their surgeries, they need someone who can research, experiment, and test those things, right? That’d be you and your colleagues,” he says before taking a sip of the coffee, “mmm, this is quite good, bravo. Back to my point, though, as you can see, while the doctors get the credit, it’s the scientists who are doing the saving.”
“I mean...thank you,” she responds, “but I’d hate to take all the credit away from physicians. We just make their tools: they’re still the ones who know when to use it. I mean, when Iron Man is off flying around, who do you thank: Tony Stark or the suit he’s wearing?” Steven takes a confident step forward, narrowing the gap between them.
“I’d thank whoever made the suit,” he grins.
“That’s still Tony Stark…” she notes.
“Well, would he be a superhero without having made the suit?” counters Steven.
“I guess not…” she agrees, again putting her hair behind her ears.
“Then I am humbled to be in the presence of the world’s most important, and most beautiful, superhero,” concludes Steven with a bow. After a pause for his actions to sink in, he stands back up, leans against her counter, and takes another sip of the coffee.
“Well...thank you, Mr. Grant-”
“Please, I told you, call me Steven,” he interrupts. I can see her blush. I can’t help but be amazed by how smooth he is.
“Right, well, Steven, tonight was amazing, and I can’t thank you enough, you really didn’t have to go to all this trouble,” she says politely.
“You’re right, I didn’t have to. I wanted to. I think you’re really something, Ms. Nelson. From the moment I saw you, I knew there was something special about you.” As I watch from behind my eyes, I notice Greer’s almost shimmer for a moment. It’s also then that I feel as though all of her muscles loosen up. She smiles.
“You know, we don’t have to leave it off at this,” she suggests, placing her coffee mug on the kitchen counter. Oh shit, is this happening?!
“Well I wouldn’t want to be a bur-,” replies Steven, only to be interrupted as Greer practically pounces on us, pressing her lips against ours.
“You would be anything but a burden, Steven,” she says coyly. Before they continue, though, Steven does his best to seal the deal affirmatively.
“This uh...this isn’t cause of the wine, right? I wouldn’t want you doing anything you’d regr-,” he offers, only to once again be interrupted by a kiss.
“I appreciate the asking for permission, Steven, but honestly, do you think I accepted your suggestion to seal our business deal? I’m a big girl, Steven, and well….I enjoyed our time together tonight. I wouldn’t want to leave you off all pent up. Besides, can’t a girl enjoy a bit of fun?” she asks. And just like that, the two work their way into the bedroom. Though I’m not the figure in control, I can certainly feel everything that my better half feels.
“Oh Steven,” she cooes, her hot breath dusting my neck sensually. Her ample breasts, meanwhile, press gingerly against my pecs. We haven’t even truly begun yet, and already I can feel the stresses of my life fading away. It’s been too long since I’ve been able to feel such closeness, such relief. It’s as though my obligations seem to disappear into the back of my mind. Then, finally, as Steven enters her and we feel the grip as she wraps herself around us, for the first time in almost a decade, I feel a true happiness. For the first time in so long: I feel complete.
——
Once Steven lays our head on the pillow to catch his breath, I feel myself slowly being pushed back into control. Greer lays right next to us, her chest rising up and down beneath the blanket rapidly. Her red hair is matted against the pillow and her delicate hands are placed upwards, almost at the headboard.
“That….was….great,” she says happily between haggard breaths.
“Yeah….yeah it was,” I reply, my own body equally as tired as hers. Greer then turns over and places her arm on top of my chest. I bring her in to lay on my shoulder, and we embrace warmly as we recover together. Everything feels perfect. Absolutely everything.
“Marc,” comes that thick Philadelphian accented voice. Fuck.
“What is it, Khonsh?”
“Are you done now?” he asks, “Because, well, as much as I enjoyed the show, and believe me I did, we still got work to do tonight.”
“No! We don’t, Khonsh! We can take a single night off!” I growl back aggressively, “I work almost every night as your goddamn fist, so you better not be telling me, on the one night I get to myself, to go out and work.”
“Oh, well...alright then. Yeah, no, it’s fine. It’s not like I resurrected you from the dead or anything,” he says sarcastically.
“Look, Khonsh, I’ll do double tomorrow, okay? We can even do some daytime work, yeah? Just...please let me have this one,” I plead.
“Yeah, yeah. Fine. Yeah, no, it’s totally okay with me,” he remarks before disappearing back into my head. With a sigh, I return to reality and look over at Greer. As she lays there, nestled in my arms, I can’t help but smile.
“Someone please help!” I hear a woman call. My eyes dart around the room, expecting to find a tv or phone on. Nothing. My eyes wander towards the window, but I pull myself away. There are other heroes in New York. Daredevil, Spider-Man, the Avengers, Jessica, the Punisher, Arrow-Guy, Tigra, Jack: I don’t have to be the one who goes out there.
“Please! Oh god, please, someone!” comes a different voice, this one more frantic.
“Steven?” comes Greer’s voice from below, “your heart is beating awfully fast again, are you alright?” My eyes dart back to the window, and then down to Greer. Stop it, dammit!
“Yeah, yeah, I’m fine. Really. I’m just...still recovering,” I lie. Greer looks at me suspiciously, but eventually accepts my response and lies back down onto me.
“You don’t have to be the hero. You don’t have to be the hero,” I repeat to myself, forcing those words deep into my head.
“Please! Please, won’t someone help!?” screams a third voice. I jump out of the bed, leaving Greer shocked and confused laying there.
“Are you alright?!” she asks in shock. Every nerve in my body is tingling. My adrenaline is rushing violently through my body to the point where I have to put genuine effort into comprehending what she just said to me.
“What? Yeah, I uh….I just remembered, I have something I need to do tonight. I...I can’t stay. I’m really sorry,” I say apologetically.
“You sure? It can’t wait until the morning? Or maybe even just an hour?” she ponders, just before I hear another scream and jerk my head towards the window. When I turn back to Greer, she’s looking at me like I have two heads.
“Um….yeah...yeah I’m really sorry,” I explain, walking towards the bed. As I bring myself up to her, I offer her a final kiss of the night. When we release, she gives me a nod of understanding.
“Okay, I get it,” she says glumly, “Just so you know, I had a really good time.” I smile at her.
“I did too. We should do this again. I’ll call you, okay?” I suggest. She then hands me a business card from her nightstand as well as a pen.
“How about I call you,” she offers with a smile. I quickly write down my cell, kiss her once more, and leave the apartment. The moment I walk out, I can feel Khonshu’s presence once more breathing down my neck.
“You got what you wanted, are you happy now?” I ask him angrily.
“I have no idea what you’re talking about, Moon Knight,” notes Khonshu. With that, I hail a taxi and have it take me to the front of Grant Consolidated. I drop a wad of bills and run inside. Practically throwing the keys into their slot, I barrel through the front doors. Once in, I place myself in the elevator, insert my key, and press the top floor button. As the elevator begins to climb, I hear the garble of the elevator’s comm spring to life.
“Is that you, Marc?” questions Frenchie, “I thought you were on a date tonight.”
“I was, but I guess crime doesn’t take date nights off,” I grumble, “Is Jack in?”
“Mr. Russell is already out on patrol for the night. He said he was going to be working in your territory tonight.”
“Good. Good! I heard something over by the place I was in earlier, and I want to make sure those people are okay. Fire up the copter, would you? I’m a few floors away.”
“Gladly,” he concludes. A few moments later, the elevator doors swing open, and I grab my key from its slot. I then take a sharp right, where a large painting of Moses standing before the burning bush looks over me.
“And He Said, “Do not draw near here. Take your shoes off your feet, because the place upon which you stand is holy soil,” I recite before pressing the tips of my shoes against the point at which the wall meets the floor. I hear the click, and then step back as the portrait is pulled upwards, revealing my Moon Knight suit hidden behind it. When I’m suited up, I then walk out into the main room and onto the balcony, where an all-black helicopter is ready. I step inside, and soon we’re soaring over NYC.
“Looks like we’re all clear, Frenchie, extend ‘em,” I suggest over my headset. A second later, and I see a large beam of white metal extend from beneath the blades and fold out to form half of a crescent. Considering we haven’t crashed, I take it that the other half has as well. Perfect. Hopefully the paint job underneath helps complete the look. I then give Frenchie the street I want to be dropped off at, and soon enough he tells me we’re hovering over it. As I step towards the edge, though, I hear Frenchie start to speak again,
“Hey, before you head out: how was she?” he asks with a saucy tone. I smile beneath my mask.
“She was good. Really good. I think I’ll be seeing her again,” I affirm to him.
“Then make sure you stay safe out there tonight,” he chuckles. I give a thumbs-up towards the cockpit in reply and then jump. As the wind violently assaults my body, I wrap my cape closer to myself, creating a barrier. I then take just a second to look up, but all I can see is what looks like a crescent moon.
“Hey Frenchie, the chopper looks great!” I yell over the headset before turning back downwards. As I see the rooftops below rapidly approaching, I take a deep breath. Concentrate, I remind myself before pulling open the cape. With my powers to guide me, I glide down onto a lower roof, just barely stopping myself on its edge. Another happy landing.
“Alright, Moon Knight, you want to have some fun tonight?” I ask the spirit. I can feel his bloodlust.
“Of course,” he replies with a chuckle. Listening in, I try and hear the voices that first drew me out of Greer’s apartment.
“Was that a second Moon? I mean...honestly, at this point, I wouldn’t be surprised.” No, not you, though I will have to compliment Frenchie again on the work he put into making that chopper so good.
“And remember, everyone, Excelsi-.” No, not you either.
“Help! Someone help!” someone screams. I can’t make out if it’s the right voice or not, but they’re clearly in trouble.
“Lead the way, Moon Knight,” I offer, to which the avatar joins me in the driver seat of my body. Using his senses, I jump from our building towards a drainage pipe, which almost instantly begins to collapse from our weight. Using it like a pole vault, I propel us up to this next roof. I then run across this one before taking a second leap, this one going over the alley entirely. I tumble onto the third roof and look out onto the street.
“Alleyway. Left diagonal,” alerts Moon Knight. Though I can’t see the alley, I know he’s right. There’s a reason we’re linked, after all. On the left of our rooftop is another drainage pipe, which this time I ride down into the alley. I then sprint across the street, just narrowly missing two barreling cars coming from each side, and enter into the alleyway where I can see a rugged man wielding a gun pointed at a small, clearly frightened woman.
“Gimme the fuckin’ money!” he screams at her, only to be silenced as I jump at him, fists already clenched. The first one knocks his jaw back, while a second blow hits him in the nose. I then raise my knee, bringing it into his stomach. As he keels down, I grab his head from each side. I pull it down onto my knee, throwing him back with its sheer force. His neck now exposed, I leap forward and wrap my hands around it. One swift movement and his neck is snapped. His body falls instantly. Silence rings out through the alleyway. The woman looks at me in terror, her hands still clutching her purse.
“Go,” I suggest to her in my fake, gravelly voice. The woman nods and runs off into the night. Taking in a deep breath, I allow myself to acknowledge what I just did.
“Good work, Marc,” applauds Khonshu, “always a pleasure to see you work. Sorry about your friend and all, but you and I know, this is who you are.” I don’t reply and instead climb the fire escape to head onto the roof. From here, I can hopefully find mo-
My thoughts are immediately cut off as I see the orange figure on the roof’s far side. Her long red hair extends down to her waist, from which a long orange tail extends. Her whole body is covered in fur, or at least, what I can see of her. Her waist, chest, and shoulders are covered in golden armor, while her face is half-concealed by what looks like a gold bandana. A blue gem glows in the center of the chest piece. Her eyes, though, are almost paralyzingly beautiful. Their golden-green gleam seem to shimmer directly into my...wait...wait no. No that’s not possible. I’ve seen that look before, but it can’t be.
“Greer?”

2020.09.23 20:30 Kaessa Skin Tones update coming next month:

https://www.ea.com/games/the-sims/the-sims-4/news/october-skin-tones-update

The Sims team will be releasing a base game update around existing skin tones on October 6 for Mac/PC and November 10 for console. As we work on expanding skin tone variety, in this first step, we’ll be improving the blotchy artifacts and ashy appearance of darker skin tones on mid and high spec machines*. (Not sure whether this applies to your computer? See the note below!) As mentioned in our initial video, we recognize there is a need to improve the representation of hairstyles in our base game as well, so in October, we will start by updating two of the base game hairstyles.
Bigger changers are coming! In December, we’ll be rolling out at least a hundred new skin tone swatches in cool, neutral, and warm tones with a particular emphasis on darker skin tones. Beyond the new additions, we are introducing a slider on all swatches, both new and existing, that will allow you to modify each selected tone to be lighter or darker. We’ve heard your feedback on makeup as well. To truly complement the expanded library of skin tones launching in December, we’ll also be adding new sliders for makeup in Create-A-Sim mode. The updated customization options will offer an entirely new level of control of your Sim’s appearance so they can look as flawless as possible. Plus, the December update will include another two improved base game hairstyles.
Keep an eye out for more information from our team in late October or early November as we start to implement these changes. We’ll also be sharing more details about how we’re collaborating with external partners, including talented and diverse community members, to make sure we get this right. As always, we thank you for sticking with us as we continue to grow. We’re looking forward to sharing all of this with you in the coming months!
Thank you!
Stay Up to Date
*Please note that the October PC update will, at this point, be visible only to those running the game with the “Uncompressed Sim Textures” graphics settings turned ON. This will not be the default setting on all machines, so follow these steps to check your settings and see the graphic updates. To turn ON “Uncompressed Sim Texture” in the game, go to Options > Game Options > Graphics Tab > Graphics Sections > check “Uncompressed Sim Textures.” If your machine has lower graphics settings and you attempt to run with uncompressed graphics, you may experience a crash; to recover, please re-enable graphic compression. Based on the current specs that default “Uncompressed Sim Textures” to ON, we recommend a graphics card rated medium, high, or ultra and at least 2 GB video RAM.

2020.09.23 16:02 CoolCrusader Why I’m Not Going To Be Playing CK 3 Anytime Soon

This is going to be a rather long read, so grab a cup of coffee or tea or whatever suits your fancy :-D
I got introduced to CK 2 fairly recently, August 2019 to be precise when I bought it in a Humble Bundle sale (Base game + 5 DLCs: Old Gods, Republic, Aztecs, Legacy of Rome, Sword of Islam).
I’d heard a lot about it and the medieval era is my favourite so I was super excited to play it. Mind you I’m an experienced strategy gamer, so I thought it’d be no big deal. Grew up on AOE series, Rise of Nations (won a tournament on that), fell in love with the Total War series starting from Medieval 2 and then almost every TW game after that, Endless Legend, Civ series, City Building Sims and other strategy games but funnily enough never played any paradox game before this. My gf had gifted me HOI4, 2-3 years ago but I never got around to playing it properly.
So anyway, I did the tutorial playthrough and then I thought let’s start my first campaign on ironman mode primarily because of steam achievements (I like maximising achievements in the shortest amount of time possible) and because I was an arrogant punk who thought CK 2 would be easy.
Boy was I wrong. I got my ass handed to me. It was such a brutal learning curve for me. I had a couple of bad starts (all ironman) as an Irish count in 867 (old gods starting date) because I read up that Ireland was supposed to be a safe launch (I didn’t realise they meant in 1066 and not 867). And I grew super frustrated. It would take too long for my chancellor to fabricate a claim. My treasury would go bankrupt because my income was low whenever I went to war. Didn’t have enough vassal levies so would always hire mercenaries who would turn on me due to going bankrupt.
The dated graphics and complex UI didn’t help either (I got LASIK surgery done recently and some of the font on 1080P is sometimes difficult to read and strains my eyes). Somehow, I managed to do fairly well in one of my playthroughs – basically learnt that crusades are the lifeline of this game. If you proactively participate in a crusade and contribute well – your game gets easier. The Pope rewards you with a lot of money (and at times land), you get prestige, you gain piety, you gain rare artifacts (and exotic lovers) , your vassals love you (I somehow figured out how to do the vassal commander swap while on a crusade on my own so that all characters with the Crusader trait get +15 bonus with each other)
But even then, my dream of conquering Britannia was left unfinished – just about managed to form the Kingdom of Ireland. After about 2-3 days (24-30 hours in game), I realised that I didn’t know much and that the game was hard. So, I grew dejected and stopped playing CK 2.
Fast forward a couple of months, CK 3 was announced and Paradox put in some challenges for cosmetic items in the upcoming CK3, so I thought I’d give it a try again. I started playing again (Ireland on Ironman in 867 – I know I’m such a sucker for punishment) but at the same time I watched a few videos online on the basics of the game. (Arumba’s videos were a lifesaver to me. He explained the basic mechanics of the game really well – CBs, De Jure issues, etc.) And I began to do slightly better. Then another bombshell dropped.
CK 2 became free on Steam. I was so miffed & salty that I stopped playing CK 2 again (I’d paid money to buy the game and barely enjoyed it before it became free – Yeah I was sulking at that time and being selfish (:-P). Btw now I’m really happy btw that people got to try such a great game for free!)
Anyway, fast forward a couple of months and as we grow closer to CK 3’s launch date some videos of CK 3’s gameplay release and some streamers get to play and showcase the game before launch so I developed an interest in playing CK 2 again -
This time I thought I was well prepared (Arumba’s videos + extensive reading online). So after a bad ironman start in India, I finally start an ironman campaign as Bjorn Ironside Af Munso with the aim to unite Scandinavia and play through the end till 1453 (by this time I had about 50 hours in game while starting).
Oh boy was that roller coaster ride for me. I made so many mistakes. For my first 3-4 rulers I did not know how to raid so was just surviving on tribal mechanics and prestige-based retinues from forming the Kingdom of Sweden. I converted to feudalism too early. That set me back by a few years. But I manged to conquer Lapland & Finland. Gavelkind screwed me and split my growing empire into Kingdom of Sweden and Finland between two brothers (I learnt that it’s better to wait and not form kingdoms & duchies with gavelkind especially if you’re planning to form an empire)
The HRE blob grew and ate up the kingdoms of Denmark and Norway so I focused on Estonia. Before I could do anything, my cousin vassal rebelled and my character was imprisoned and died. He usurped my title for the kingdom of Sweden. So I was just left with a few destitute provinces in the kingdom of Lapland and my heir was a woman. Well I was like, atleast the kingdom is still within my dynasty but no – the usurper got deposed by another character who wasn’t of my dynasty. So my character at this time is a woman ruler who tried to fight for the kingdom of Sweden but gets captured like her father.
At this point, I was feeling so low. Didn’t feel like continuing the game and was thinking of a new playthrough. Somehow, I persisted and managed to ransom my queen back AND THEN THE POPE SAVED MY ASS! He called for a Crusade on the Kingdom of Sweden. My queen was the top contributor and chose herself as the recipient and won back the kingdom of Sweden! Oh boy that was such a sweet victory. (When I saw my total dynasty score at the end of the game, she had the highest prestige contribution - 17K) – And this whole thing happened again. Another Pope saved my ass but this time against Norway!
I managed to capture the kingdom of Estonia via a holy war (Another of my characters briefly became Suomensko) and gave it to my heir to balance my demesne limit penalties. But he couldn’t control it and lost it in a rebellion.
Anyway, I finished my playthrough all the way till 1453 holding the kingdoms of Sweden, Lapland, Finland & recapture half of Estonia with a total score of 144K on Ironman mode. This playthrough took me about 50 hours and I fell in love with the game.
I keep making mistakes and learning new things all the time but it’s a lot more fun now! I really do want to play CK 3 (the graphics and new hook mechanics look amazing)
But now I first want to take my time enjoying CK 2 in each and every aspect. Even after 100 hours in, I feel like a novice, who’s just discovering newer mechanics and I so want to explore more mechanics, cultures and more DLCs etc! I feel like I haven’t done justice to this game. Barely scratched the surface.
P.S: I haven’t played a single campaign without ironman so gonna keep continuing on Ironman only :-P

2020.09.23 15:37 velociraptor75 The all-up Manjaro Gnome guide: From installation to system optimization to desktop tweaks

The all-up Manjaro Gnome guide: From installation to system optimization to desktop tweaks
I've been using Manjaro for a couple of years now, and I love how responsive, stable and reliable it is. Over numerous installations across several machines (and collating best practices from many great online resources -- including Manjaro's excellent forums) this is my go-to checklist: from system installation to tweaked desktop. NOTE: Many of the choices of apps and tweaks here are my own personal choices -- you're likely to go with something completely different. But that's one of the beautiful things about Linux: choice!
So, here goes...
Create the boot disk/CD
  1. Download the relevant Manjaro Gnome ISO from here
  2. Verify file integrity:
    1. Linux: [sha1sum or sha256sum] [ISO Image]Eg. sha1sum ISO_NAMEORsha256sum ISO_NAME
    2. Windows: Download and use the MD5& SHA Checksum Utility
  3. Copy this to a thumb drive using the Rufus bootable thumb drive creator (in Windows) or Popsicle/balenaEtcher (Linux). Preferably select GPT/UEFI when creating the bootable thumb drive. Note: With Rufus, selecting the DD mode is more reliable than the file mode when creating the image.
  4. Selecting UEFI will boot into EFI mode, otherwise it will launch in MBBIOS mode. NOTE: To set up Manjaro in EFI mode (recommended, for almost every system built in the last decade,) make sure ‘Launch CSM’ and ‘Secure Boot’ is disabled in BIOS, otherwise it will launch in a Legacy mode that emulates BIOS. The mode the system is booted in will be the mode Manjaro Linux will be eventually installed in: UEFI or legacy BIOS.

Installing Manjaro

  1. Boot using the thumb drive created above. From the Live environment boot menu:
    1. Select free or non-free drivers. (Choose free for Intel, non-free for Radeon/Nvidia)
    2. Select system language/numbers and dates format (I use US English -- en_US.UTF-8 in the list of choices)
  2. After booting into the Live environment:
    1. When choosing automatic partitioning, remember to select the correct target drive! I generally choose Erase disk, Swap (with Hibernate).
    2. For manual partitioning, see this guide. Use Gparted, and delete all existing partitions on the target drive. Then choose New Partition Table, Select GUID (GPT), and click OK. To install Manjaro, you need i) A FAT 32 boot partition, ii) Swap space, iii) The Root file system, iv) Home partition (if not defined, it will be created as part of the Home partition). Set up the drive’s partitions as suggested below. TIP: If resizing partitions, do this first in Gparted and then launch the installation. Resizing drive partitions in Manjaro takes far longer.
Suggested drive partitioning for Manjaro installation
HINT: If you happen to have two drives in your system, configure the Swap partition on a different drive from the one your boot/root/home directory is on.
  1. Proceed as guided by the remainder of the Manjaro Installer.

Things to do after first install

System/Performance tweaks
  1. Start Pamac (Add/Remove software) and select the best server repository In Preferences, enable checking for updates and set this to every 24 hours. Enable AUR. Then update the system.
  2. Install Preload from Pamac, then run it using admin privileges (for faster application startup)
  3. Date and Time Set to Automatic
  4. Disable GRUB delay (Quicker system startup):
    1. sudo nano /etc/default/grub
    2. Change GRUB_TIMEOUT value to ‘0’
    3. Set GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE to ‘hidden’ (and not ‘menu’) for a silent, faster bootup
  5. Power management:
    1. TLP: Make sure TLP is installed and running with tlp-stat -s (check for ‘active’ status.) If not installed, do so from Pamac, installing tlp and tlp-rdw[Optional] Install the GUI for the app (tlpui from Pamac)
    2. Install Thermald
  6. Reduce Swappiness (sets the system to depend less on Swap):
    1. Swappiness value should ideally be 10. Check Swappiness value with: cat /proc/sys/vm/swappiness
    2. Create the config file sudo nano /etc/sysctl.d/100-manjaro.conf
    3. In the above file enter: vm.swappiness=10
    4. Save the file (CTRL+O), enter, and exit (CTRL+X)
    5. The feature takes effect on restart
  7. Check TRIM for SSD drives (for extending life): systemctl status fstrim.timerThe command should return a response indicating it is enabled by default. If not, enable by typing the command sudo systemctl enable fstrim.timer
  8. Run Gufw (Firewall) and enable
  9. [Optional] Disable Bluetooth service from loading at startup:
    1. To list enabled services: systemctl list-unit-files --type=service grep enabled
    2. To disable services from loading at boot:sudo systemctl disable bluetooth.service
    3. If you really want it dead, where other services can’t restart it:sudo systemctl mask bluetooth.service
    4. To stop the service: sudo systemctl stop bluetooth.service
    5. To verify that service is disabled: systemctl status bluetooth.service
  10. [Optional] Disable the Ethernet interface if it isn’t being used and is utilizing too much power. This is done by disabling kernel modules
  11. Run mkinitcpio -M to show all automatically detected modules
  12. Should look like ‘r8169’ for the Ethernet card
  13. Create a .conf file inside /etc/modprobe.d/ and append a line for each module you want to blacklist, using the blacklist keyword. Eg.
# Do not load the 'pcspkr' module on boot.
blacklist pcspkr
install module_name /bin/true
  1. Regenerate initramfs with sudo mkinitcpio -P, and reboot.
  2. To regain Ethernet access, repeat this process, commenting ‘#’ the lines added to the .conf file.
NOTE: The following section is entirely optional. At this point, you can straightaway jump into using your newly-installed Manjaro!

Desktop environment / app tweaks

The steps below reflect my personal desktop preferences (Manjaro Gnome). You may of course want to configure your desktop differently, based on your own preference:
  1. Launch Layouts and choose ‘Traditional’. Also make sure ‘Automatic Dark Theme’ is diabled.
  2. Settings:
    1. Keyboard shortcuts:
      1. Search for ‘Switch windows’ and add the shortcut ALT+TAB (replace existing)
      2. Scroll to the bottom and add
    2. Power:
      1. Bluetooth: ‘Off’
      2. Automatic Suspend: ‘On’
      3. Power button Action: ‘Power Off’
    3. Files history & Trash:
      1. Disable File history if needed
      2. Toggle on to automatically delete temp files and trash
    4. Keyboard and mouse:
      1. Search for Universal Access
      2. Search for Touchpad, disable Natural Scrolling
  3. Install Chrome:
    1. Start Pamac and search for Chrome in the AUR packages
    2. After installing, font size (of browser content) can be increased in Chrome Settings (Eg for a 1080p display. Set Page zoom to 110%, Font size: Medium). Set this in conjunction with ‘Scaling Factor’ in Gnome Tweaks Fonts.
    3. If not already picked up after logging into Google, change Chrome theme to Morpheon Dark.
    4. Disable tab hover cards by typing chrome://flags/#tab-hover-cards then selecting ‘Disable’.
    5. See this site on enabling hardware rendering in Chrome:
      1. Go to chrome://settings and expand Advanced at the bottom
      2. Scroll to the bottom, locate and make sure the Use hardware acceleration when available option is enabled.
      3. Type chrome://gpu. Most entries should have the words ‘Hardware accelerated’.
      4. To force hardware acceleration for even more features, open chrome://flags
      5. Locate the section on that page called Override software rendering list and change ‘Disabled’ to ‘Enabled’.
      6. When you now check chrome://gpu, more settings should be Hardware Acceleration enabled.
  4. I love my desktop clean! Right-click desktop Settings uncheck toggles for desktop icons
  5. Right-click Panel (Dash to Panel settings):
    1. Position Stack ‘Date menu’ lower down, until it shows up to the extreme right
    2. Style Panel size: 32, App icon margin and padding (choose what looks best)
    3. Style Scroll to bottom, Override panel theme background opacity, set Panel background opacity to 85% (or whatever looks best with the selected wallpaper)
    4. Fine-tune
      1. Tray font size: 0 (theme default)
      2. Status icon padding: -1 (theme default)
    5. Extensions Disable Arc Menu
  6. Gnome Tweaks
    1. General Over-Amplification (as needed)
    2. Fonts
      1. Scaling factor: 1.2 (works well for my 1080p laptop display. Play around and see what works best for you. This changes fonts system-wide: UI as well as web page text) OR change the font sizes of Interface, Document, Monospace etc.
      2. Antialiasing Subpixel (for LCD screens)
    3. Top bar
      1. Enable Battery percentage
      2. Clock: Enable Weekday, Date, Seconds
    4. Windows Titlebars Enable Maximize and Minimize
    5. Appearance Applications: Adwaita-maia-dark, Cursor: Xcursor-breeze, Icons: Papirus-Dark-Maia, Shell: Adwaita-maia-darkNote: Installing other themes sometimes mess with the appearance of other apps (eg. Kdenlive not rendering the dark theme correctly.)
  7. install Gnome extensions from https://extensions.gnome.org (requires a browser plugin for control). I like keeping it simple -- my preferred extensions are:
    1. Sound Input & Output Device Chooser
    2. Clock Override: Configure the Add-on, and enter the following text for preferred date and time:%A, %d %b '%y ~ %l:%M:%S %p
    3. Dim On Battery Power: Set screen brightness for battery (~50) and plugged in (~100)
    4. Remove Accessibility (Removes the accessibility button from the panel, if present)

Install key software

Remember to enable the Arch User Repository (AUR) in Pamac Preferences.
  1. Mark each the following in Pamac before installing in one go.
    1. gThumb Image Viewer, a quick image file viewer
    2. Timeshift (for system snapshots, not user data backups). Settings RSYNC, Schedule 2 snapshots weekly, exclude user home directory, select date format. See this tutorial.
    3. Popsicle (for formatting and writing images to USB thumb drives)
    4. MS fonts: Install ttf-ms-fonts in Pamac
    5. KeePassXC (password manager), from main repository
    6. uGet (Download manager)
    7. VeraCrypt (Encryption tool)
    8. qBitTorrent (Torrent client)
    9. Gimp (image editing)
    10. Kdenlive: Video editor. Settings Color Theme to ‘KvBlender’. (See Getting started)

2020.09.23 14:59 Fireflysbooks First time dating

So this is my first time dating someone. He goes to the same school as me and I’ve known him since middle school (I’m currently in high-school). I didn’t have a crush on until this year when we started calling during quarantine. We’d talk for hours and hours till late in the night. We even played Minecraft together at some point and he’d always make cute houses for me. Over time I developed feelings for him and I tried to drop hints by asking him about his crush a couple of times. I don’t know if he noticed but I asked him that quite a lot and he wouldn’t tell. He even once put a story right after we called saying “I’m simping for someone and I kinda like it” I asked him who it was and he would refuse to tell me. Fast forward to a month later, he confessed to me and obviously I accepted it. We’ve been dating since start of September but it just doesn’t feel like it. We don’t call anymore because school started and I’m in a different country for a few weeks so my sim doesn’t work. He’s a dry texter. Like istg he does NOT know how to text. He replies after HOURS and makes up weird excuses. I once asked him on call if he actually liked me as much as I liked him and he convinced me that he did that once. But what can I do? I overthink a lot and I need reassurance at least a little bit that “yes I care” or “no our relationship is not a burden”. I’ve asked my friends and they try to console me but it’s like they think I’m overreacting. And I feel like I’m overreacting because imagine dating me because you like me and then BOOM 69 messages about “do you still like me?” , “do you care?”, “I feel like I’m being annoying , “Are you even listening?”. It’s like he doesn’t take it as seriously as me and I’m not even asking him to msg me 24/7. Even just a goodnight would be enough or a “how was your day”. The relationship feels so dry I honestly don’t know what do and I really need help to sort my thoughts out. What do you think?

2020.09.23 11:49 Sloeman 35[M4F] Aylesbury - UK (between London and Oxford), do adventure loving introverts exist?

It has taken a long time to become confident in what I want out of life and unfortunately that has shrunk my dating pool a LOT. Let's give this thing a try, I'll try to keep it brief, bullet points maybe, everyone loves bullet points right?
The usual tags to begin with: Athiest, Frugal, Financially independent, Professional, Adventurous, GTD, Onebag, Solotravel (happy to change that one)
Really I'm looking for someone who doesn't need me but would be happier for my company, bonus points if you give good hugs.
Quite honestly I'm usually happy being on my own but I do like having company and I can see myself becoming a eccentric yet grumpy old man if I don't share my time with someone more often. I'm the kind of guy who offers tea and coffee from my motorhome to motorists stuck in the snow. I'll swim out to some Vietnamese fishermen with a bag of beers and swim back to the beach to BBQ up some traded squid. I'm a disinterested yet adequate cook, generous lover and hugger, giant (audio)bookworm and love the idea of retiring before hitting 50. While I sound extroverted I think I'm the opposite, I spend plenty of time reading, playing games or browsing reddit quietly on my own. My ideal relationship would be with someone happy to share a giant hammock and read books together, I love that relaxed feeling of being together without needing to be constantly doing something.
I've made lots of progress through my bucket list these past few years, publishing books, travelling to exotic places, owning a business. The next one is to write an academic paper that is published in a peer reviewed journal. I'm very tempted to commit again to a Vanlife or Narrowboat style of living, both of which I enjoyed in the past. When winter hits I generally go abroad and travel around as cheaply as I can without being disrespectful to anyone. I'm not quite a shoestring traveller but close enough. Staying in a few places for long periods of time to understand them and enjoy them feels like a better way to travel to me than trying to do the lightning tours that get you all the pictures with the landmarks without ever talking to a local. I have many stories that you can pry out of me with a glass or two of wine.My friends find me an oddity, most of them have children now and while I do visit them, we can rarely have fun any more without some issue with the kids.Physical description: Brown curly hair, glasses (though saving up for eye surgery), 6' tall, a few extra lbs (working on that, losing about 2 per week).

2020.09.23 11:22 Wizamp September Update of Slaying the White Whale

I'll do a write-up later for this month but after 8+ years, I finally beat The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. The oldest game in my backlog, my ever present white stag, Moby Dick, the one that lingered but never slain. Until today. Can finally move on to other Wii games, and a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Not the longest or toughest, but the most important one in my eyes, the holy grail.

Good unit, Ops are really fun, 10/10 would recommend joining, I debated joining a star-sim and when I joined the 327th I completely regretted putting it off. -Reaper
