@Dulkan there are loads of small files and a few GB-sized files.

@Dulkan there are no bik files, nor any other obvious stand-alone video files, in the game folder.

comment How is the attacked fleet selected?
@DCShannon so far that's my impression as well. Can you add this as an answer so I could accept it?

comment How does the “portal particle screens” improvement work?
@DCShannon Yes, starting from turn 16, you make more science than before. But my point is that it takes 49 turns to get even. So at every turn before turn 49, you produced in total less science than what you would have had produced had you not built the extension - and that's what I mean by reduced output. I edited my answer to add "total" there, to help emphasize that. As for clarity of the description, it was mostly unclear to me that it's an empire-wide bonus - I'm used to those being in a non-improvement tech.

comment How can a Firebird build compete with Tal Rasha's after 2.4?
If the +Element% multiplies the other modifiers, and does not simply add to them, then I can definitely see how this can make such a huge change. But is that really how it behaves? In general, how can I find it if a damage bonus is additive or multiplicative?

comment Where are the entrances to all the set dungeons?
Thanks! Though this looks like it's quoted verbatim from diablofans.com/forums/diablo-iii-general-forums/…, so (1) thanks for pointing this to me but (2) you should probably source and attribute this :-)

comment How does item repair work?
Wait, so is it crafting you need, or blacksmithing? And are you positive that the more damaged the item is, the higher the skill required? And is the item level irrelevant?

comment What happens when you die?
@Ender it is indeed outdated, but since at the moment I don't have anything to add beyond z's answer, it would be better if you could accept his instead :)

I'd like to point out LessPop_MoreFizz is one of the most active users on meta, who had voiced his (often well-articulated) opinion on a variety of topics. In fact, he's one of the few holders of the silver "discussion" badge on meta, shared only by a few other users, all mods. It shows that even without being a mod, he already works hard to help other users and try to shape the policies of this site, which is an important mod trait.

comment How long does it take for a calf to be full grown in Harvest Moon A New Beginning?
Hi Assylum, if you feel you are being harassed by other user(s), it is indeed important you contact either the community moderators or Stack Exchange. In the meanwhile - and this applies to anyone here - please keep the comments here on-topic. For the moment I've deleted/edited the comments already here.

comment Is it possible to see AI's city gets captured by barbarians?
@DavidYell yes, barbarians capture settlers (and other kinds of non-combat units) but I don't see how that is related to the question or my answer.

@chance the max durability is unaffected. I've edited my answer to clarify that.
