Why are you interested in me? You shouldn't be. I'm boring.

But if you insist on getting bored, click that website link. It'll tell more about me than this puny "about me" section ever could.

comment From what game does the following music come from?
The song is Gourmet Race from Kirby games. Apparently, it's from Kirby Super Star for the SNES, specifically.

comment How do I make most use of the Adrenaline Shield?
Thanks, that's very informative. I suspect my biggest problems are rarely getting into anything remotely organised (I managed to blunder my way into one of the two good outfits on my server, though, so that should be getting fixed) and generally being bad at Planetside close-quarters. I did overestimate the passive regeneration difference, too: looks like the adrenaline shield is better in general combat than I thought it was.

comment What happens to aliens and items outside of captured UFOs?
@maxywb It should be always available. I did it once no later than November. This particular rule is mentioned in the UFO recovery mission instructional pop-up.

comment How important are efficient mining strategies?
I can't say about the whole game, but I know there will be upgrades that allow you to reach most ores you've managed to cut yourself off from. This situation in particular can be fixed.

comment Why are my parachutes failing to deploy?
That'd be the one, if I recall correctly. It's been a while since I last played Kerbals.

comment Why won't this dock produce grain?
Everything looks like it should work. Has the ship been refitted to carry grain?

comment Specify a particular path (track) for a train
Waypoints can help: they can be assigned to a train's orders like a station, but won't cause them to stop when passing through. Waypoints do, however, cost a little to establish and add some infrastructure maintenance fees.

comment What games does Shadowplay work on?
Yeah, I checked for updates almost immediately after leaving that comment. Felt pretty stupid. I'll give it a few more tests to see if something gets in the way of desktop capture or older versions of DirectX or OpenGL cause any problems.

comment What games does Shadowplay work on?
As I understand it, Shadowplay works with anything and everything that works in true fullscreen (not borderless window), and it still grabs the whole display - Steam notifications are still captured, for instance. They might've updated it since I last checked, though, so I'm just posting this as a comment.

comment Is it possible to turn down Ashley without being rude?
Not sure if/how that helps, but in my (incomplete as of yet. I should get back to it) playthrough, the whole "wanna do it?", "nope, we got a mission to do", "oh well" exchange with Ashley was extremely straightforward. No idea if that cut me off from listening to any of her stories.

comment How do extractors get damaged?
Thanks. So is leaving an undamaged extractor working overnight always safe? Can it take multiple hits over one work cycle or be destroyed in one hit?

comment How to change direction of boulder
If I recall correctly, slapping something (including boulders) makes it move away from the camera. I don't have DK2 on hand right now to check, though.

comment What is the best way to improve the relations between races in order to start a federation
Here's how a planet looks 91 years into an observer mode game: imgur.com/CY7WGVn. Thousands of production, dozens of mines and processing plants. I don't think races can colonise moons without the hydral's help. Other factors that may or may not be in play are population, planet size, compatibility, economy scores, technology and random chance. In any case, "how is a planet's resource production determined?" definitely looks like a separate question.

@Tyr It definitely helps, but is it a strict requirement?

@BlueTrin Right-click their planets and scroll down to the bottom. Here's a screenshot: imgur.com/g6eyx8t.

comment How is tunnel price calculated in openttd?
@Blindy But it does seem to be just a matter of length from preliminary testing. I'm going to take a look in the source for specifics. Not sure if I'll find anything.

comment How do the different ammunition types affect weapons?
Thanks! That explains a lot. Any hard numbers? Are the range/speed modifiers absolute or percentile?

comment How do the different ammunition types affect weapons?
@Rapitor I just went back into VR training and checked. All it gives is a general description like "high-velocity ammo is faster", which is less than what I'm looking for. Nothing shows up in the numbers, not even extremely obvious things like extended mags.

comment WDS contribution prizes location?
Mine are accessible through weapon customisation, as camouflage. However, I'm fairly sure I should have more than 8 after completing tier 2 contribution twice. I don't why I can't find some of them, either.
