I was testing with my good old Aurora how far from the planet I can get using the quantum travel (Star Citizen alpha 2.5)
It took around 3 “jumps” (or 4) to reach a distance where the quantum drive became inactive in that same direction (alpha gameplay limitation). I decided to record my journey on the way back to Crusader in Stanton star system and here we are.
It was little tricky to pick up the right destination on the ships interface, because all dots were packed really close.
After I reached Crusader I headed back to Port Olisar and landed on the platform.
A close look at the Freelancer space ship in Star Citizen Alpha.
My choice for exploration ship goes here so far. The ship has good visibility from the cockpit, beds for the crew, enough cargo space – it can carry a lot of stuff, huge back hatch (can fit big containers) and good weaponry. The size is big enough but not too much, you can park it easy. The turret on the back can turn 360 degrees which is very practical.
Just for the record in this video I’m in the Stanton star system and the planet (gas giant) at the background is called Crusader. Looks really HUGE from closer.
As you can see I had some clipping issues at the end of the video – I clipped through wall and the ship just flew away without me 😀
This is a common bug BTW and happens very often when you are close to a wall, especially if you are trying to sit or stand up from the seat in the cockpit, but let’s not forget this is just the alpha version of the game (alpha version 2.5)
The Elder Scrolls 5 – Skyrim was released in 2011 and still looks great! This is one of the most amazing, immersive games I played so far. Mods are making is even better and they are like tattoos, when you get one it’s just the beginning – you definitively want more. I’m running the game with 138-150 mods and it’s not over yet 😀
Did you spot the dragon? 😉
And that’s the list with my current active mods:
I spent few weeks in research on a websites like nexusmods to find the best mods out there which will help improve and give a finished look and more variety to the game. Skyrim doesn’t necessarily need mods to be enjoyable game though, but I really love to mess with all games I play and like the feeling of control over that virtual world (in single player or hosted multiplayer environment) that modding gives me. Now mod support is a must for me to keep my interest to a certain game.
Wonderful map from The Elder Scrolls universe which shows all (so far known) continents on the planet Nirn. The main continent Tamriel (Skyrim is in the North) is at the center. Akavir (east) – known to have been one of the original homes of the dragons. The Blades were originally from Akavir, where they were known as the Dragonguard. Atmora – frozen continent located far to the north of Tamriel, it was home to a race of men known as Atmorans around the Merethic Era. Aldmeris (south-west) – The Altmer claim that this continent was the birthplace of both elves and mankind. Pyandonea – island-continent located to the far south-west of Tamriel and home to the elusive Maormer. Thras – partially-submerged continent west of Tamriel. Yokuda (west) – dull, rocky, hilly, desert landscape. It is known to be the original home to the Redguards before they rendered it uninhabitable.
Testing the Greyhawk UAV in Arma 3.
Observing an enemy camp from high altitude and striking out two enemy armored vehicles with AT missiles. There is just no where to hide on the ground from that beast with his thermal imaging and night vision. The Greyhawk could be extremely powerful weapon in the right hands.
