Yes, our fireworks display should be much more coordinated this year. Planning several prebuilt-fused launchers with a 50 shot 2" mortar finale! 8)

Re: Ark Survival Evolved - Casual PVE

Its not to bad really.  Mods can become a pain, depending on which ones you choose to run. (I.E. Bush Peoples) 99% of my efforts were spent trying to get this mod to function the way I wanted. The real problem is there are so many servers out there to choose from that it is hard to populate your own...

Re: Ark Survival Evolved - Casual PVE

Well after much labor getting this all set up the way I wanted, it seems many of my friends and I, just dont have the time to build and manage a community.  The server is no more.  That said we will be starting fresh on an official server soon.  If your interested in joining us add me on Steam.

Re: Suggestions for gaming laptop.

I lean heavily toward the Dell camp as well.  I have been inside hundreds of laptops and in my opinion the build quality of the Precision/XPS/Alienware lines is top notch.  If you find one that is a bit more expensive than your budget don't hesitate to give Dell sales a call and see what they can do...

Re: Give us 10 good reasons you should win a Corsair RM1000i Special Edition here

10 Reasons I should win a Corsair RM1000i Special Edition. 1. It would look wicked-awesome in my Corsair 600D white case. 2. If I win I will buy another R9 390 and crossfire..  This would allow me to drop my household thermostat by at least 2 degrees this winter. 3. My current power supply will get ...

Re: Layoffs are a scary time

As scary as it might be you may want to start exploring other options at this point...  It is much easier(typically) to find good opportunities while you are still employed.

Well, long term the plan is(if we have a healthy amount of players) to cluster and allow players to teleport between various maps.  I will update when we get this all set up but its probably a bit farther out.

Re: Ark Survival Evolved - Private server

A quick update - We switched to The Center due to the devs dropping support and in fear of future bugs interrupting gameplay as Ark moves toward release.   We figured it would be much safer to live in an "official" world.  The mods you suggested are amazing we love all the building options...

Thanks for the tip on the mods!  We love them!!!  

Seems like they would adopt these features into the official release at some point, it makes it so much more fun to build things!  Feel free to check us out as we do have a third shifter or two playing.

Be patient and wait for a shell shocker or other comparable deal.  I held out for almost three months but I got exactly what I wanted at a great price for doing so.  27" IPS 144hz 1440p freesync for $350.  Couldnt be happier.
