I would say the cop is just doing his job. He asks for the driver's licence and the driver just refuses, because he sees no reason why he should. In Germany you can always be asked your licence without any reason, so I don't get why the driver is pissed. Just show you f***ing licence and be done with it. In my opinion the driver is in the wrong here.

Why oh why do people steer in the direction of danger, instead of the opposite way (to avoid it)? Note that I am not immune from this. When playing games, I frequently find myself accidentally strafing in the direction of projectiles when I should be moving the opposite way. This person would have been fine if they had viered left instead of right, into the oncoming path of the guy.

Well, in a situation like this, people just do without thinking. If you have never been in a similar situation, your brain just takes a random direction. If the driver gets into the same situation again, it is quite possible that the brain will decide to go into the other direction. The other problem is, the driver could not know in which direction the other driver will try to evade, so this was more of a "two people try to evade each other in the same direction and stand awkwardly in front of each other" situation. Just with cars...

"People clicked the red X, but the free offer was about to expire, so we just forced it onto them." lol

 

 

 

If I did that, it would be criminal. But corporations do not commit crimes, they only make mistakes. And it is only a "mistake" when their bad behavior doesn't earn them enough to offset the penalties (if any)!

When I was more stupid than now I was confused how the hell Garrett who is weak guy(in my gameplays) can lift a body. Now when I am wiser how much strength you need to use a bow I get how strong he is.

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

Not an expert negotiator or anything like that, but I think this cop did a shitty job trying to talk her down.

Instead of constantly disagreeing with her (you're not, you're not, you're not), he should have tried to use reason. Throwing it in the person's face that they're wrong without any explanation as to why is likely to only escalate things. Also, this isn't like diffusing a bomb that's on a set timer. Talking someone out of suicide can't be rushed. The slower you take things, the more successful you're likely to be. Taking things too quickly will only cause escalation. Try talking to them about (other things). Ask them if they want something to eat/drink. Slowly make a connection with them and then move up from there.

Always fun to see people push things further than they were designed to go...

 

 

frame rate is very good, but he's "cheating", by using a custom made cartridge with a more powerful processor that's doing the work. Many old console games worked this way; shipping with co-processors to augment the system.

 

Impressive skills either way.

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
