It seems as though Microsoft have some big plans for Windows in 2021, so big that PC Gamer have dubbed it "as close to Windows 11 as we're going to get".
The update will include a visual overhaul with a "softer design", new animations, a Windows 10X style Action Center, an overhaul to Disk Management, per application control for systems with multiple GPUs and an overhaul to the audio stack.
Microsoft is set to launch Windows 10X in the next few months, so it would make sense for them to try and unify 10 with 10X, and they're currently recruiting for a BIG update as was pointed out on Twitter;
Since 21H1 is already being worked on, it's fair to assume that it will be the usual bug fixes and small quality of life issues, which leaves PCG to theorize the big update will be 21H2 and likely come in Oct or Nov 2021.
That's right, we have a game server, and we are going to keep it PvE. This server is NOT just for clan members, it's for anyone that is part of our community here, so if you're registered on this site, you ARE part of the community here. I ended up renting the game server myself to give it a try, and also get away from the PvP since Delrick and I got WRECKED by this really nice walker. We are open to anyone with the game to come in and join in, but you need to contact Delrick, Wolf, or my self for instructions to join on the server.
Man, setting up the server was a pain in the ass, but well worth it. We are currently running the server with some multipliers on it, but not as high as many. Even though we say its PvE, you need to make it that way because there is technically no PvE mode, we just need to be cautious of each other.
If you do join us, here are the rules:
You need to request access to the server from Delrick, Wolf, or me.
No trolling other people.
No PvP, unless if you are sparing in the ring at the Trading Post.
No Killing others.
I also have set up a donation to help pay for the game server only. So anyone that joins in, all help is appreciated because after this first month, it's going to be up to everyone that plays on the server to help pay for it. I personally paid for this first month.
Well, I finally got to get around to trying Last Oasis today with Delrick. We pretty much agree on our first impressions of the game, and we can honestly say for an "Early Access Alpha", we can say our overall impressions is good. There are still some room for improvements, but, as it stands now, it was actually really enjoyable to play. We put in 4 hours into the game at this point and if you can play a game for 4 hours, and have it feel like it was only 30 - 60 min, they are doing something right.
Starting out, you are running around with nothing but some pants, and you must gather things at first. There are a nice set of instructions that you must complete to learn the game. It seems like careful thought went into trying to teach players how to play the game. I know other games have that in there, but more of the time, it's not that thorough. Playing this game for me, definitely brought me back to the good old H1Z1 days. The walkers are nice and I did enjoy that. Overall. I can say from my experience, that if you enjoyed Ark, H1Z1, and other games like those, then you will probably like this game. Both Delrick and I do recommend getting this game if you like those types of games. I did have my doubts at first. When I started up the game, the first 10 min or so, I was doubting the game, but the more I played it, the more and more I started liking it.
Downfall to this game is that it is only PVP, and not PvE, but, for $13.00 USD per month, you can rent a private 10 slot servers. I think it goes up to 100 slots total. Right now, there is only 1 company allowed to host the servers, but others will come later. Another downfall that we see is there is not much in the line of enemy AI, so PvE at this time would not be great until they get more AI in. Well, if you do decide to join in on the game, I do recommend buying this game and getting in contact with Delrick or my self, and we will get you in the server that we are in, and we can help you out.
One major thing is, there are some settings in the game that you are going to want to change, just because if you don't, the visual can be a bit distorting. I had some screen tearing. But both Del and I were running good FPS and really didn't experience any real major issues, but we did have some small issues, but being a "Pre-Alpha", they did a damn good job.
Okay, here is what this thread is about. I like to see what you guys can come up with for in-game screenshots. Go all out, and have fun with it. This is open to the whole community. Just a few restrictions.
Do not upload others work trying to pass it off as your own.
Do not upload any porn or nudity, keep it kid friendly in that sense.
Do not upload more than 6 to any 1 post, AS LONG as you keep it side by side x 3 rows. Example below.
Please refrain from doing consecutive post.
Try keeping them 1920 x 1080 or better, (1080p).
Please upload using the "Image Repo", link in the navigation on the left side of the site, (4th from the bottom).
Also, just know, any image that you put here, is able to be used by others to make backgrounds for their PC's, or any art project. Basically, it's open to be used by others. If you don't like that, then just don't upload anything. This is just meant to be a fun thing within the great community of friends and members that come to this site.
Just put your first image bbcode, then a space, then put your second image, then hit enter to go to a new line and repeat up to 4 more times.
If you want the image, you can't simply right-click it, but, you can quote the post and get the URL for the image from the quoted text. Just know, you don't need to submit if you're just quoting to get the image URL. Please don't quote and submit a quoted message, if you want to directly point to someone, just do a @Username, for example, to me would have the thread start with, @coRpSE.
Here is a small fix for those of you like me using the Forums News module. If you haven't noticed, the font size was removed from the bbcode, which I think this was just an oversight, but this is not to fix that, but to fix the issue with the Forums news module that does not display the bbcode the way it should if you happen to use the bbcode for font size.
If you didn't know, [size=36]Your Text[/size] still does work, you just need to manually type it and change the value on how big you want it.
Well, when I was writing up a new article for this site last night, I realized that it was not working on our site, so I went in and did a quick fix for it. Without getting too deep into everything, all I did was change the Reg Expression and that is it. So, to fix this, you can do one of two things, re-download the version of the Forums News module that you have and open up to the following file and replace yours on your site at the same path, or just do the 1 line edit your self. You will find the file to replace at the path I give below to edit.
