Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Ha, I just got the blueprints for the Cyclops to. I''ll try putting it together this weekend. I thought I'd get the blueprints for the PRAWN Suit first. Is it normal to get the Cyclops before the PRAWN Suit? Have looted the Aurora and the island with the big alien gun so got a lot of stuff from them...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

There is a video of a lady where this happens - I won't link it but she ended up being OK.

I'm not a Harley lover but I have to admit your bike looks nice. If I was to get a cruiser something like that would fit right in.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

I remember taking my sister for a ride on my bike 20 years ago. She's light as a feather and I accelerated away from some lights and I swear for 1/2 a second I thought she'd fallen off. Scared the crap out of me. Keep the "Sissy bar". :D Hope your Mum enjoys NZ. Only been there once but very picture...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Fair point. I've just never noticed such small items being listed on invoices before.

Suppose it's better they break it right down rather than just say "miscellaneous" and lump a heap of stuff under that category.

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

I think I'm a fair bit behind some of you but finally got a Seamoth (shame about the depth limit but still fast and fun).

Now I'm hunting for Magnetite to upgrade my scanner room - I think it (I cheated) is in the Jellyshroom caves - as luck as it right next to my base!

Re: The "Pay It Foward" Thread

I didn't realise it was so good. I played a little of ep1 a long time ago and thought it was just OK. I remember at the start having to get past some bullies and then being confronted with someone with a gun in the school toilet and the principal not believing you. I'm guessing it's one of those gam...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

I just built the scanner room and I hope it helps finding mineral deposits because I'm getting a bit bored swimming around randomly (and they don't seem to regrow). I see there are 4 upgrades you can do to the scanner room. Do you do 3 range upgrades and the HUD upgrade? Or can you do 4 ranged upgra...

Re: The NBN thread

I'm with Lightning Broadband which uses a microwave link so as long as they don't shutdown I won't have to move to NBN.

But you're right for most people -it's a bit rough to force people to NBN when it's so half baked.

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Thanks for such a detailed reply - your advice is really helpful. I managed to find the floating island and scanned all the stuff I needed for different rooms, etc. One last base question, do you build a beacon and leave it at your base so you can find your way back or does your base automatically s...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

I made a fabricator. Does it matter where I build my base? I was just going to plunk it next to my lifepod but don't want to regret it for some reason down the line.

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Subnautica tip: Maybe it was just me but early on I was swimming around looking for specific stuff (like silver ore). I didn't realise you had to mine the rocks (like limestone, etc) and only then the item would appear.

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

Oh, that's good to know. I think I'm still a way off from that though.

I've made a radiation suit and upgraded my air tank so am still a way to go before building rooms.

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

I think Subnautica would benefit by having some type of tagging system. Say you need titanium, silver ore and quartz so you tag them as required. Then when you're out swimming anything you've tagged is highlighted or something. I managed to swim to the Aurora and realised I'd need fire extinguishers...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

I hadn't seen your post but I've crafted all those things - just by luck.

Tennis finishes tonight and kids go back to school on Tuesday so hopefully by Wednesday I'll by king of the Subnautica ocean (or at least get to upgrade my flippers). :lol:

Finally got around to play a little Subnautica - hard to find time with school holidays and watching the tennis. Having said that it is really good. Spoilers?: I'm not very far in and haven't read much but have managed to craft some flippers, an oxygen tank, a scanner, flashlight and repair tool. Al...

Is it good enough that I should stop my backlog and buy it without waiting for a sale??? I feel ...

Re: The NBN thread

Thank you n1cholas - you've given my quite a bit to consider.

After some more research I am moving away from MyRepublic.

There are still so many variables I'm thinking of just waiting a bit longer till all the mess is sorted out. I'm not wrapped with my current connection but at least it is OKish.

Finally grabbed subnautica and loving it so far. Yeah it's fantastic, has been so all along through early access. Nothing quite like building your first base either, especially deeper and nearer to the sea floor. I've been watching Subnautica and it looks like something I'd love - but I have other ...

Witcher 2 (possible spoilers). I've tried so many times to get into this game but it's disappointing me. I'm playing on easy just for the story and most of the fights are fine.

Anyone tried Angels Fall First: http://store.steampowered.com/app/36727 ... views_hash

Never heard of it till today but people seem to be saying it's pretty good.

I've added it to my wishlist - I've got a few other games I've got to finish first.
