To be fair, those "/k/ vidya" threads have less of a right to be there than these threads do here. We're all talking about simulators, but those guys aren't even talking about shit like Arma/Squad half the time. Lots of times they're talking about nonsense arcade shooters like RS2 and Tarkov.

/k/ standards of vidyas is a realistic time to kill and weapon mechanics, compared to most of the stuff on /v/ it more than definitely has a right to be there

My guess is if they scaled buildings up too much the base, unmodded game could become too graphically intense. As it is, unmodded your usable space is not even close to the size we had in SC4 using regions, so perhaps they scaled things down a bit to allow players to fit more into the usable space. This becomes less of a problem with modding away the space limit and unlocking all tiles. Personally I'd advocate for the return of region play so you could actually build connected cities and then you could scale things up.

Use a full chainguard to protect your chain, bike at night so that way you don't have to deal with traffic and pedestrians, wear glasses (homedepot protection glasses are cheap and work great, also keeps your eyes from drying up), and get a mounted flash light so you can see at night. I always night ride for this reason, especially because I don't have to deal with pedestrians on trails.

This is normal. Your body starts to regress the moment you stop regenerating after the last effort. You will rebound very, very quickly once your riding volume goes up. Getting to a certain training level for the first time is hard. Getting back is usually quite fast.

Busses, limited space in apartment, and gf wouldn't like a big bike in our already small apartment. Neither would I.

One. All I’m asking if for ONE fucking ride that isn’t stuffed with scam artists, tourists, and perhaps a car that doesn’t have needles on the floor. Also, is it just me or is it just needlessly loud?

This is also just a me-thing, but there’s seemingly always one guy who had never ride a train before. They usually fall on their asses but that’s funny so I’m not complaining.

For the UPS trucks, Arrival said that they will have “a battery range of more than 150 miles (240 kilometers).”

Earlier this month, the startup took a $100 million investment from Hyundai and now they are quickly following it up with this new UPS deal.

UPS seemed to have liked their original collaboration with Arrival since they announced today that they are investing in the company and placing a large new order with them.

The investment is of an undisclosed amount, but the order is for 10,000 electric vehicles and the option for 10,000 more:

>by defending batteries and you are by extension bashing fuel cells

FCE use batteries dipstick- they also require 10,000PSI components and have fixed 15-year lives on the molecular level.

FCEs suck and likely will only be used on spacefaring vehicles where the production of water and salts can be used.

>>1451868
Right is that why both Hyundai and Honda have fuel cell vehicles on the market right now for less money than a teals?

Everything you said is extremely specific for what type of fuel cell technology you're talking about and there are cheaper less efficient designs available if you're willing to not be a Jew about mpg, which is reasonable with carbon neutral algae based biofuel. And guns take pressures of 65k psi and they can be 3D printed and mass produced so no reason why fuel cells can't be. And replacing a tiny bit of ceramic Every DECADE AND A HALF is better than having to mine 600 pounds of lithium every 3-5 years. Plus the tech is advancing faster than batteries.

Also I said earlier turbines are another option.. with 3D printing and no FAA Jew license they could be cheap af.

Canada is the only G7 without high speed rail. Is it feasible to connect at least Toronto to Montreal? Air Canada and Porter both offer almost 1 flight an hour between Montreal and Toronto. The travel demand is there, we just need the infrastructure.

Does your STI's support having a 'trim' where you can click it once to move the FD without actually shifting the thing.

Because setting it to support trim is awesome and gets rid of the "My FD rubs in half the gears, bro" problem

Is degreasing just a meme perpetuated by autistic roadies?
What's the point in taking all the oil off something just to put it back on again?
Wiping down your chain and keeping it oiled makes sense, checking for chain elongation makes sense, degreasing seems like autism.

I always run my chain through the park chain cleaning tool with dish soap and water before oiling it again. If you put oil on without cleaning off the grime and dirt, you trap that shit in the joints and on the chain.
>>
Chains are horrible to clean, not hard to replace, last for ages even with abuse, and only cost between $10 for pleb-tier and $50 for super-pro-racer-tier. Just wipe them off when they're shitty, squirt lube on them when they start squeaking, and replace them on time. Use wax-based lube and you won't even have to clean them much. Anything beyond that isn't worth the effort.
>>
>>1451815
Yes. Its a meme. Wipe a chain clean, lube with droplets of oil on each roller. Done.

Unless you go full-ultrasonic with some sort of aggresive solvent, or are have a clean chain OCD.

your chain is a bearing and should not be exposed to the elements.

I am willing to bet degreasing does more harm than good.

Take the $20 that you'd spend on degreasing products and buy one more chain a year.

To be fair all Airbus widebodies (such as the A330 of the Rio-Paris flight) are French-made. It's only the A32X family that's split between France and Germany.

Watching a stupid person try to piece together small parts of the equation and process them individually, ultimately failing to successfully analyze them as a coherent picture, is like watching a domesticated animal try and fail at some task that it sees humans doing. In some sense it can be entertaining but if you try and help it you're not actually "teaching" it anything, you're just anthropomorphizing something that doesn't perceive reality in any way that would be meaningful to humans
