Sweet HomeFRIDAY
« on: August 02, 2019, 12:11:38 PM »


We are late kicking off the Friday party today.  I'll be doing FoG-Empires, and working on description files for CMANO and Burden of Command.

Having a lot of fun with Stars in Shadow so that will probably be my main focus, think I'll start a new campaign as the Tinkers (a.k.a. cute Borg). Also just reinstalled Guns of August which I haven't played for years so I'll give that a go as well.

Good pick of song, not sure if I prefer Alabama or Chicago though  :)

P.S. couldn't figure out how to embed a video related to that last sentence  :-[ - here's a link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0zyuc_2UVg

This week I got Deathgarden: BLOODHARVEST in a Humble Bundle.  It's quite the thing.  Think 5v1 battle royale, with a team of scavengers trying to collect and deposit a large quantity of blood while being hunted by the lone hunter.  Lots of tense, frantic gameplay.  I'm not bad as a scavenger but I absolutely suck as the hunter.

I've also been revisiting Rimworld as I'm wont to do a few times a year.  It's still as much fun as ever.  My colony currently faces its first winter, for which I did no preparation whatsoever.  All crops have failed, but I did just about manage to acquire enough cotton to make parkas for everyone, at least.

Some lovely multiplayer fun in Arma 3 as always.

I've had this for a while and barely looked at it.  I really need to, one of these days.

I almost picked "Sweet Home Chicago."   It is my favorite Blues Brothers tune.  However, they just can't compare to Skynyrd.  However, for those who want to compare, here is a version with Johnny WInter and Eric Clapton:

Having bloodied my nose on the DCS AV-8B and learned the basics of the US aircraft systems (and game itself ), I’ve decided to try the F-18. Got it started, flew around, learned the radar and now trying to learn the AtG systems. It does help sticking with the modern US systems as the concepts and design are similar, but the F-18 is More complex.

I’m glad I learned on the Av-8b but I do find the F-18 much easier to fly. Trying to refuel in the Harrier made me seasick swinging back and forth. The F-18 is smooth as butter.

Not really sure what or when but it will be something.

   Yoiks.  I'm back from the Sea.  Well, Ipswich Bay anyway.  My kids can swim now.  I haven't played anything but kid games in 5 weeks so anything at all will be wonderful.  Yes!  Rome II!

We paid to have our 3 grandkids swimming Lessons from an excellent local, certified instructor because we have a pool and they love getting in it in the summer. Best money we ever spent. Now they're so good they can help us out of the pool if we get in trouble. The ease of mind alone is worth it.

First training my daughters ever had was to learn how to swim around 2 years old. The Wife was also a lifeguard for years and years.

  Yes!  I paid for a swim teacher for them at the YMCA in Gloucester.  Since the kids were out rowing boats and sailing on schooners and climbing out to sea on rocks as the tide came in, it seemed like a good idea.  Plus their cousins (who are only a little older) can swim well.
