Definitely off-topic, but this song speaks of a situation where a German pilot escorted a severely damaged B-17 (Wikipedia link if you haven't read about this before) out of German land to safety instead of gunning it down.

The Rain throws up some interesting results, as I somehow managed to guide my McLaren-Honda to P2 at China in F1 2017. Bottas was right on my arse at the end, but a bit of late braking into the penultimate corner saw him off! Proud of myself, worked bloody hard, and I'd like to thank the team for putting together a reliable car, that worked brilliantly in the wet, especially when coupled with a brilliant strategy.

Shame about the Drive-Through though (for a BS reason too) or we could have potentially been fighting for P1!

I can't quite wrap my head around how fast car parts deteriorate in F1 2017. After two races, I've had to replace all engine parts par one. WE'RE ONLY ALLOWED 4 FOR THE SEASON. If I switch them after two races, I'll be using 10 over the entire season.

That's actually a bug I think.
always use the "drive out" option when in FP ( and immediately set to lean) , also do not use "return to garage " but go to pits yourself . When you do the practice program for qualification and you use drive out , the mixture is set to MAX by default ( hence me saying to set it to lean even when using drive out ) . I usually never ever use MAX setting ( and very rarely "rich" ) you can do most FP programs in the lean setting . Use the most crappy power unit components you have for the FP .Don't change gearbox for FP though , that will result in penalty if you do it before completing 6 races with it .
that could be a reason for why your parts wear out so fast, also 25% race distance might have a bug in terms of part wear.

Lastly, could be the team you're driving for.

You really think McLaren is going to be 100% reliable with no issues? Invest in reliability and durability upgrades

Well, I was driving for Sauber. Gotta support Marcus Ericsson after all :mrgreen:

Yes, reading around I see 25% seems bugged. Running less seems too short, and running more takes too long. Also I'm a bit annoyed by practice sessions being too long. I KNOW, I KNOW, setting cars up and developing parts is crucial for F1. I don't want to do that though. I wanna mop the floor with my team mate and go from zero (P19 in my Sauber) to hero (champion. In my Sauber). Let me race, don't force me to care about conservative driving techniques!

There should definitely be a setting, "parts wear" that you can reduce or entirely turn off. As it stands, I will be starting at the back of the grid for every second race come mid-season. Even if I do put my Sauber on the front row.

I think my Engine is around the 50% mark, might as well give it a run out around Bahrain as I don't particularly fancy my chances there with the McLaren :lol: If I qualify at the back, might be worth taking a fresh engine, and dealing with the penalty, at least I'll have one for later in the season that way!

Mine has been so far, though I am only two races in! Though, come to think of it, I think my engineer mentioned something about reduced power output right at the end of the last race. Ah well, speed is more important than reliability, at least I'll have a chance of some points when it explodes, instead of puttering around in a car that is reliable but 3/4 seconds off the pace.

Also, 50% Races for the win! :mrgreen:

I do like it when maps go a bit weird in Europa Universalis. Take a look at the Iberian peninsula!

In the top left, you find the independent nation of Galicia. Surrounding that is Portugal.

The large yellow nation is Castile, predecessor to a unified Spain. Castile has lost a lot of land to Portugal, but also seized other former Portuguese lands to the south. Just northwest of Castile is the nation of Navarra, which just so happens to be a vassal of the bright blue lands in Southern France, the independent Guyenne.

East of Castile, you'll find Aragon. East of Aragon, my vassal state Girona (white) sits nicely by the seaside.

Oh yes, I am that brownish blob covering most of Southeastern France and Northwestern Italy. I am Switzerland. (and yes, I've been using cheats for power points)

You kinda got me to play again ^^; M&T mod though, of course. Thought I'd give Ethiopia a try:
mh. No money. No manpower. No eduction. No good resources. Estates have all them privileges. Horrible CE in horrible terrain:

Surrounded by Sunnis, so have fun with Sunni rebels and Gazi raids every five minutes.
But at least the other nations in the region are largely not much better off.

Huzzah, Surviving Mars is here. From the makers of Tropico, and the publishers of Europa Universalis, Stellaris, and Cities in Motion / Cities: Skylines, it's time to conquer Mars yeooo!

My main area of my colony includes these three domes. The closest, and the largest, is the dome "New Hope Springs". The middle dome is the cleverly named "Origin Dome" courtesy of being the first one constructed. The one to the left is the "Chrill Dome" named for the founder of the program. Chrill.

In the back, outside the crater/valley thing I am in, you see a fourth dome. It's the "Rooftop Dome" since it's up there. It serves a mineral extraction site.

The burn marks near the camera are simply sites I have landed rockets at.

If you have played Tropico, you will recognise a LOT of the city building aspect, or in this case the dome construction aspect. It's clearly built by the same people (Haemimont) and with the same engine.

Recently I took part in a playtest at Paradox Interactive's HQ here in Stockholm. As a thanks, I got to pick two games and I decided to get myself some Cities: Skylines DLCs. Long time since I played it. LOOK, there's public transportation!

Now, this game even runs fine on my potato computer. Very encouraging. Can't wait to get a new computer and really bump up the graphics for this.
