  • Re: What is Icrontic playing? May 2017

    Imagine you are a person who likes fabulously complicated games, with tons of moving parts--some immediately explicable, others not well-understood for 30+ hours. Example: I send my peon to go convert that plot of land into a farm, and I get more food. I start a war in the 16th century... will my society ever recover? Who knows! I'll find out in a few centuries (10+ hours of play time).

    Now, if you will, imagine this on a grand scale. An Antikythera mechanism of a game, with hundreds of moving pieces: resources, diplomacy, government, exploration, research, experimentation. It's super Civ.

    That's Stellaris. It's fucking awesome.

  • Re: Error message has me stumped - any ideas?

    The PC. I would just reformat. It's the common denominator. I ain't got time to troubleshoot weird problems anymore. :p

    @RyanMM said:
    Does Detroit have open container laws that I'm not in the loop on, or does the pedal pub license allow BYOB? I'm only asking because of reasons.

    For quite some time: Detroit city ordinance Article V, sec. 38-5-1 prohibited consumption of alcohol in public spaces, but did not forbid open containers. This generally remains true.

    Setting the wheels in motion, Michigan's 2015 legislative session in SB165 provided for commercial quadricycles, and alcohol on commercial quadricycles, if the driver does not drink or serve.

    Detroit followed up by amending 38-5-1 with several additions in Article VIII section 58-9-x to except for the new Michigan laws. As per Michigan State law, however, such pedalpubs must be BYOB; cannot stop at a liquor store; and cannot onboard drinks purchased from any dining establishment. Also: no glass.

    A2 and Grap also allow for BYOB pedalpubs. The fun governors in Kzoo banned it.

    The more you know. 🌈
