    Tarman replied to a thread Headphones in Dangerous Discussion
    I've had a pair of AKG K240 MkII for about seven years now. Super comfy as well as good sound for music as well as Elite. I killed the first curlycord after 4 years but the straight cord (patchable cords on a headset, wooot) has held up so I haven't had to pony up for new wires just yet and the sound quality has held up. For louder times of day I have a cheapo set of comp speakers with a single baby sub but the desk they sit in is a massive cavernous office desk with hutch which adds a lot of tone. The sub is under the desk behind my pedals so Elite will push sounds through the ship floorboards so to speak.

    Hail varonica I made a key binding map with explanations here in this forum on page 27 - post #393. I did this using my hotas x-56. not sure what you have, but the basic axis controls on this map should be close to just about any hotas set up . I made this key bindings map to help explain the actual descriptions of each things use in the control menu, you may want to try and experimentation of each . use my map it may help you figure out how to get something comparable to what you want. I used the control menu grafix in my map, so it may help you locate them in the menu easier. I hope this helps, it got me closer to what I wanted.

    triggered. They had a number of film tricks to show Zero G. The pen is stuck to a huge rotating pane of glass. They rotated whole corridors so that the velcro footed hostesses could walk on the ceiling. They show Mr Floyd sucking his food through a straw. (although the liquid slips back down the straw) And the famous Zero G toilet:

    It would probably be ok for a VIP transport, but I'm out of the VIP hauling biz since they nerfed the pay.

    Found my third undiscovered PN; a nice pink one just right outside and slightly above the galactic core. My wife is using a screenshot that I took as her wallpaper right now (I can post a full-sized shot on imgur, if folks are interested): As for my plans for the next week or so, I've picked out a track of A supergiants that will lead me back toward a small cluster of PNs closer to the galactic core (fingers crossed that CMDR Madraix didn't get there first) then intensify my search for rare stuff like unique stars, Earth-likes and close-in gas giants. Speaking of Earth-Likes, I refined my technique over the weekend and managed to find 12 more, as well as dozens of Water Worlds in three days. One final note -- I found a landable planet with a radius of ~20,600 KM. I haven't scanned it yet, but I am kind of tempted to try to land on it. Should I even attempt that with rinky-dink ASP X thrusters that top out at 260 m/s?

    Pretty sure 51th is that l33t-speak stuff for Sith. FDev must have slacked off on that Minor-Faction stuff letting that go through... Tho this kind of war declaration kind of reminds me of old AstroEmpire days of guild wars and codes of conduct we had on the Alpha server. Brings back good memories. Here tho? Well, I dare say good luck with all that.

    This. It's the reason that these discussions rarely accrue interest in the academic sphere. There's simply nothing to really discuss unless you make assumptions for the sake of argument, like a Dawkins vs. Creationism debate. It's ideological discourse where "science" and "skepticism" are basically synonymous.

    I thought Rail guns were less powerful than PA's? unless that's just me misreading haha :D I agree, NPC's are a little too accurate with these things, still, A good method if someone tries to club you...bring a bigger club! and unless you are going against some big prey (FDL's , Condas ect) class 4 NPC's would be rare. you know come to think of it, I have never actually seen any opponent have a class 4 PA?? perhaps if the class 4 RG was added NPC's may not even be equipped (so we hope!) Yeah. I used 2 RG's on my python once. used them for 20min and ditched them cos of heat issues. I was getting nearly 40% spikes in heat per shot. a few shots had me in the critical range. having 2 class 4's on a Corvette would more than certainly put it in critical heat and could really damage it haha. I guess I was just hoping for a revival of the weapon. Imagine class 4 Imperial Hammers?! Now wouldn't that be fun....

    The 5A shield only adds 4Mj to the total shield value, according to Coriolis. If that's not a miscalculation, it's barely worth using that shield.

    Sometimes I just don't want to be bothered even though I'm quite sure my Python doesn't have much to worry about.

    Is it just me, or is going *in* backwards a lot easier than going *out* backwards? I feel like going in I have more visual references.

    SLI isn't supported by ED or VR yet as far as I know, so a single strong card should beat two lower ones. ED and VR are very GPU taxing, so yes, it does benefit quite a bit from the newer 10x0 cards. No idea about simultaneous multi-projection, but I think there's quite a new thread discussing just that (haven't checked it myself). The IPD is supposed to make quite a difference, although I haven't managed to get that right myself. I think I have an IPD of 68, but changing that setting doesn't seem to do squat. What does do a brutal difference is the headset position on the face...

    900 hours in Elite in the Vive. Can't complain apart from my face needing to evolve a bit to not feel discomfort from wearing this thing all day long. Can't imagine Elite without VR anymore. They are also releasing new improved replacement straps for it soon (+$100) wich should make it more comfortable. I did try the Oculus too but a couple of things put me off from buying it. I didn't like the fabric material that covers it (dust magnet) and although it feels lighter than the Vive, the foam padding seemed smaller thus digging in my face deeper. Oh, and Facebook is evil. I suggest you try them both on first. I'm pretty sure you can't go wrong with either choice.

    I did, actually. The headsets are too bulky, even now, and the interface is too much of a pain. Sure, it's very immersive, but it's super-annoying to have to lift your headset to take a swig of beer, and no, I'm not going to drink it through a straw. That way lies madness.
