  1. It's worth noting that the within the refueling part they're also planning on keeping the maximum cap so this won't remove the need to conserve fuel over the race but it will allow for the cars to be under fuelled at the start of the race and therefore able to go faster. I suspect they are looking for more of the action seen on the last 10 ten laps when the cars are quickest during the first 40-50 laps.

  2. Refueling is back!



    Formula 1 bosses have agreed to bring back refuelling in 2017 as part of a range of measures aimed at making the sport more exciting.

    There will also be higher revving and louder engines and changes aimed at making cars "five to six seconds a lap faster", governing body the FIA said.

    For 2016, bosses have approved a plan to allow teams free choice of the four available tyre compounds for each race.

    The changes still need to be approved by two further legislative stages.

    The changes were agreed on Thursday at a meeting of the F1 strategy group, which comprises FIA president Jean Todt, commercial supremo Bernie Ecclestone and the Ferrari, Mercedes, McLaren, Red Bull, Williams and Force India teams. The engine manufacturers were also represented at the meeting.

    The FIA statement added that a "comprehensive proposal to ensure the sustainability of the sport has emerged".

    This, it said, would be refined by the teams in the coming weeks.

    The engine rules, which saw the introduction of turbo hybrid engines and a fuel restriction last year, will remain stable.

    This is to give clarity for any potential new manufacturers who may be considering entering the sport.

    But it is the return of refuelling which will attract the most attention - the practice was last permitted in 2009.

  3. Restarted again and found a village. Feels like cheating but I've moved in :) sorted the layout of the village and set up a farm.

    For something that's made out of big blocks it really does take your breath away at times. Found a cave with a lavafall and it was so big you couldn't see the end of it.

    Been up until 2am every night playing it. I'm thankful that my pc is so bad it won't run on it. The fact I need the TV restricts my play time :)

    Build this chicken farm and you'll have a constant source of food.

  4. I only discovered this recently so apologies if it's common knowledge.

    The Nether is on a ratio of 8:1 block wise to the over world. This means you can connect places using Nether Portals quite easily. What I now have is a Portal at my main storage base. Then if I find something like a village or bi-ome I like, I build a portal there but don't light it. I take a note of the first and last co-ords, divide them both by 8 and return to the portal at my main base. In the Nether I locate these new co-ords and build another portal and light it. If the numbers are right you should have new portals linked. You can then build a hub in the Nether and use the portals to move about the map.

  5. I find this such a weird post, because I think I'd disagree with every item in it. PC gaming came before consoles? This-gen consoles costing £500 and PCs cheaper than that? It's so weird.

    Mainstream gaming was PC driven, whether that was Spectrum, Atari, Amiga. You had consoles but those followed those formats. As for £500, you can build a gaming rig for £500 no problem at all that will run 30fps games.

  6. Because it is. I have a bone and a ps4 yet almost exclusively play on my 360 and PS3. I know that Bloodborne is brilliant, but i'm 20 years too old to have the time and reflexes to commit to it.

    What else is there? Destiny is incredibly addictive, but after 25 hours I was out as it is also very repetitive. Far cry 4 was ok I suppose, unity was annoying it's cumbersome attempts to add in game purchases that spoilt the experience. And two of those are on old gen consoles as well and its the old gen that got the better assassins creed game last Xmas.

    Where is the new Bioshock, Oblivion, Uncharted, Gears, Mass Etfect etc, all games that came out early in the history of the last gen.

    I look at the upcoming releases and very little appeals to me and even less surprises me. Is console gaming too safe now with its endless remakes of games barely two years old? Where are the exciting new games?

    Because consoles have had their time?

    Gaming used to mean PC gaming and with that came the problem of hardware. A game would be released and you'd need to upgrade the graphics card or change the processor and then six-twelve months later a new game would come out with a new Graphics card requirement so you always had expenditure.

    Then came along the PS1 and Xbox. A console you could get good games for which would last for several years; no more hardware problems, not meeting minimum requirements and better yet, they were cheap compared to a PC. Fast forward to now and consoles have slowly increased in price as have the games but more importantly gaming PCs have become cheaper with less dependences on the latest games needing the latest card. Why spend £500 on a console when you can get a PC capable of playing you games and streaming them to Youtube or Twitch? PCs have become a more viable option which takes that gaming user base and it;s cash from the console market.

  7. 60GB.

    SSD would give the best experience, especially for reducing things like loading times and pop-in that people are experiencing.

    If I have it installed to my normal HHD right now, is there a simple way to move it across to the SSD or would it be uninstall / install?

    Edit: Worked it out :)

    - Copy files from D: to C:

    - Deleted local content through Steam

    - Install GTAV from Steam using the C: destination

    - Steam "Discovered" the GTAV files, verified rather than installed and all good

  8. I'm gonna wait till the weekend to get into this, I'm sure there'll be new patches, config guides and AMD drivers - I just played through the prologue and I'm getting stuttering and a corrupted hud texture on the edge of the right hand side - not game breaking but still very noticable...

    But I'm not too fussed, been playing Dying Light whilst this has been downloading and I've gotten really into it, brilliant game!

    AMD drivers came out yesterday and while I've only played the first single player mission it looked really nice :)

  9. They've come close three times that I can recall.

    1. at the start of season two when they try to out do each other as to who loves who the most and Abed brings in a wedding party.

    2. During Shirley's wedding rehearsal they recite vows only for Shirley to stop them

    3. At the end of either season 4 or five when they propose to each other when it looks like Greendale is gone then dismiss it when it's saved.

  10. Meh, Britta rarely makes me laugh now. She is probably the weakest character.

    She's traded places with Annie.

    In season 1-2 Annie Britta was the strong female role who was on par with Jeff. At the same time Annie was the young girl who had very little life experience and we had an underlying plot line of her growing as a person. At some point the "you've Britta'ed that" was introduced as running joke and her character went from strong role to idiot while Annie was promoted to the lead character. - Britta can organise a full wedding but not make a sandwich? It's a shame because Britta's early character as an equal to Jeff was a great role.

    But then I preferred Pierce when he was cast as the character helping them all in the background without them knowing...

  11. My diary says 9.00 qualy start, and 8.00 race start. but you know... who knows really!

  13. Given the unused footage and that he's still in contract, What I thin we'll get is two shows that are the unused footage, both with no audience but Clarkson, Hammond and May providing links then the third show being similar to the web show they did before this series where they'll discuss their personal best bits over the years as a final goodbye.

  14. If this is what lies ahead for the season then it's going to be duller the last year. The Merc's 1&2 is no more exciting than a drive down the M1 from Newcastle to London. Ferrari and Williams providing a little action for 3rd but the overtake being a jump on the pits rather than car to car action. Then, way back at the back of the grid is the big action.... Will enough people retire for a limping McLaren to score a point by default?

    Top tip... When the pit stops are providing more action than the racing somethings needs to change :(
