Forking out for RTX2080 based PC next week :)

I don't think you need that system to be able to play Star Control  >:D.

True but dont tell the wife  she is having my old system :)  I5 2.8GHz and Radeon RX480 8GB

I haven't looked at my WOTR install yet but CFS2/3 had a "target cone" widget you could turn on that would help you locate a padlocked target. I guess some folks considered it a cheat but in the absence of something like TrackIR it was very handy.

F1 cycles the views.  F6 takes you back the gunsite.  Do you have trackIR ?

I don't have a TrackIR at the moment, and I find WOFF almost impossible to play because of the difficulty in maintaining "eyes on" the target. Hopefully Wings Over the Reich is a better.  Or, is TrackIR really a necessity and not just a "nice to have"?

Steel Division of course. Still enjoying this game. So hard to master.
A little holdfast nations at war
Post scriptum. I hear the German servers for this game are insanely organised. May check that out.
Dawn of war 3

I am also thinking of playing some naval action and war thunder ships.

  Somewhat similarly -- Steel Division (solo!)...Post Scriptum (I'm sure the German servers are insanely organized which is just one of the many reasons I usually play on the "Allied" side in WWII FPS games)
  And some World of Warships and some "boardgame" Harpoon saga things.

I'm downloading it right now, but I doubt I'll have much time to play it.

I bought it too but doubt I'll be able to give it a good playthrough until into October.

Been chatting with Rod Serling again, Meng?

  I think what happened in a nutshell, was that I stumbled across a pile of my old Harpoon stuff whilst sorting things in my all-new man cavern.

  So that must have gone something like this: I decide to look into some of the plastic bins that I have randomly removed from the barn and transported to the new cavern.  I'm guessing the box of harpoon stuff was under a box of old "computer stuff" (as in "You never know when you might need  a couple of hundred pounds of RCA plugs and cables.") and I'm guessing it was at first innocently disguised under a layer of Fear God and Dread Nought-type things.
And then...(cue twilight-zone-music "doodoodoodowa - doodoodoodowa") there's Harpoon4 and a lot of items back to the original 1987 game.

   The components I have only cover up to about 2002 so I need a "future" that is roughly 20-30 years behind the times and a reason for that and a reason for a war (aliens looking for Cobalt) and a locale (Greenland and the SuperSized Gulf stream and vast undersea coal deposits that are about to emerge due to the falling sea levels).  The opposing sides are Russia and Mediterranean powers versus the Atlantic Powers (France, UK, Germany, Norway, and the Netherlands)

Grogpubbing along now that we've started.  :bd: Presumably we'll finish setting up the problems this weekend for players to address in the Senate (the initial problem being the former king Tarquinius Superbus trying to retake his kingdom from the Senate!)

Haven't heard back from Yskonyn yet on Strategic Command: Classic but looking forward to steamrolling the decadent dogs of the west or words to that effect! (Until they come back to bite me in the face anyway.)

Since patching has settled down on Rome 2, at least for the Empire Divided campaign, I may restart my Armenian run using the DEI super-mod.

Actually there are tons of nice shiny things to play with.  :smitten: And my favorite half-season of the year starts today with the downslope of autumn! So I'll have plenty of opportunity to be thankful for that!

(Once my harvest allergies tone back down, kachew. ;) )

The 2080ti is godlike... and has a price tag to match.

I wonder if NVidia will start accepting kidneys as payment.
