So, first impressions of Snowrunner, with a bit of background

2021.10.18 16:01 CheshireCat86 So, first impressions of Snowrunner, with a bit of background

Following Spintire and Mudrunner, which I completed one-star in hardcore mode, I definitely wanted to try Snowrunner. *Lesigh*. Spintire and Mudrunner were fun but sometimes tedious. Snowrunner is tedious but sometimes fun, I found. FYI: I've only completed the first Michigan map and dipped my toes in the second map. I know 'things get better' when you find upgrades, but I doubt most of the following thing get better. Some are nitpicking but hey, this is a Sim, right? Be aware that none of this is final: I don't drive a truck, offroad, and live in Belgium, Europe, known for it's light pollution. I might experience things different because of regulations being different in the US and Russian Federation.
So the lighting: a combination of poor vehicle lighting and streetlamps make for poor visibility on asphalt. Inbetween lamp posts you're basically blind, at night. Vehicles usually have 3 light modes: parking 'to be seen' lights', dim 'see whats in front of you' and high-beam 'see whats futher in front of you'. Snowrunner offers 2: parking is always on, and a portable sun they call highbeam. Foglight should be either switched separately or on high beam. The lamp posts shine straight down and back a little. Which means that the ingame lampposts illuminate their own post better than the road. Please fix :).
I'm sick and tired of big chunks of rock and trees littering asphalt roads. I realize the story makes for a post emergency world ( flood/storm it seems? ), but starter trucks are low, their upgrade front tow bars are even lower. Please let me buy some sort of plow/shovel or a mini dozer like a Bobcat to clean the main roads to mindless transport doesn't get so tedious I'm sure IRL we would clean up the supply lines right fast. Oh, and once cleaned, have them stay cleaned. Don't have the boulders and fallen trees respawn in the middle of the road every time I pass. Please fix :).
Speed on asphalt. Or the lack of it. Speedometer is off, tachometer is off, feeling of speed if off. I feel I'm biking instead of trucking.
Please have winch points on side railings and more solid objects. I also fail to understand why saplings are winch points. Ofcourse they'll snap. Why bother?
Upgrade progression: please don't lock away OBVIOUS IRL upgrades like a snorkel and all terrain and offroad tires away until much higher level or found. IRL these would be one of the first upgrades you'd do if you'd ofroad and ford rivers. c'mon guys.
I don't have the feeling like trailers have brakes. Do they? Are they realistic? This I don't know. I see the airlines, but not sure if functional. Most of the time I feel my trailers are living a life not particularly bound to the same earthly physics as I am.
My god I tip over fast. Especially with the Scout.. I do have a roof-rack though, because I need the fuel.
Here we tip gravel into the mud if the road is heavily used but temporary, like around a loggers camp. I'd like that option, because I find the logging camp at the first map tedious to navigate. Eh, or not.
Now, having said all this, I AM having fun, don't get me wrong. Here's hoping for some EU maps like Scotland or Norway in the future :). Looking forwards to that Toyota hylux and Mercedes Unimog etc.
Thanks for reading. I appreciate any comment as of why certain things are as they are.

2021.10.18 16:01 BestWingMan212 Do I just keep playing?

I bought the game a couple of days ago I'm 13 hours in but I just have a hard time playing because I don't understand what is going on.
I'm still at the tutorial and got my first trip to a new star system, if you wonder what I did for 13 hours I mostly just collect stuff here and there and looked around.
So I have some questions and if possible ''spoil'' me as little as possible if there is anything worth spoiling

  1. What do I sell and keep? at the bottom of each thing, there is a small indication like trading or production, and so on is this accurate for most things?
  2. Will it get better after the tutorial? I like the idea of the game but the tutorial is just ''going there do this and repeat''.
  3. Is part of the story not being able to travel everywhere? I know that the Space Anomaly is discovered through the Storyline but am I also not able to travel to all Star systems from the beginning?
  4. How do I connect space stations? One space station (let's call it A) is connected to the teleporter in my base but that's it, if I teleport from Space Station B to my base I can't go back to B only to A
  5. Will I get the hang of it over time? For example the Space Stations you can buy stuff at this terminal thing yet there is this guy selling stuff (what's the difference) and then those little dudes that sell upgrades it seems like C and B tier is so much worse than A and S so what's even the point of that?
  6. Learning a language is another thing where some people say they write them down and really learn them but I usually get a new word say cool and move on is this the wrong approach to it? and can I learn a word more than once?
  7. Is scanning and uploading just there for Nanites? I feel like scanning an animal or fauna to be a little bit boring because there is not much to the text they seem pretty generic so I mostly don't care about them and just upload for the nanites
  8. Is exploring better later on? right now when I scan on a planet I see the same 3 or 4 things to collect around me is this normal? with scanning, I mean the basic scan that the character has that shows you oxygen and other stuff
  9. How is the long-term motivation? I don't really know the gameplay loop since I'm not that far in the game but is there enough content to not get boring after some time? it seems like a constant repeat of mining and building (but again I'm only in the tutorial so what do I know =D)
  10. And lastly, if you have a lot of hours can you give me an idea of what you do most of the time in the game?
Sorry for the wall of text, I feel like I play the game wrong by not understanding what to do and I'm not a big fan of the tutorial if you tell me it will get better and that you had the same feeling early on as I do I will push through the tutorial and give it a second go.

2021.10.18 16:01 chriizzl Hedging against a potential Marketcrash, 2008' all over again.

Hey everyone,
I am quite new to investing, around 2 years since I started to take it serious. I did put a lot of research into everything and finally build a portfolio I am 100% behind long-term. However, the more I learned, the more sure I am that we will experience a market crash rather soon, than late.

If I decide to buy puts, I am not sure on whom. If I pull out all of my cash right now, potential Hyperinflation, which I think will be upcoming, will also burn through my cash. I currently have 5x leveraged K.O. Long certificates on Apple, MSFT, Biontech and Alibaba with a small amount of money (in total around 15% of my entire portfolio are derivatives), the rest are pure shares. I expected all of them to perform decent in times of hyperinflation, since they can easily adjust their prices to counteract high inflation and institutions will stick to them anyways. My biggest asset is the Vanguard FTSE All World ETF with around 25%. How can I expect this ETF to move if the USA and China collapse? If those collapse, Europe will be next? So, should I take the cash out of it for now?

Now, the catch. I did so much research, learned constantly and came to the conclusion, which I am not here to debate whether or not you think is true, that we might see something like 2008 all over again. The theory behind it would assume that Gamestop is the current best hedge and to some degree AMC as well, even heard that from the highs up from a bank when I talked to my bank guy, which is incredibly weird. I should mention, I am from Germany, so things are not as heated here.

Another hedge and long term hold for me were crypto, since I come from that space and have extensive knowledge about the field, especially with the new Eth 2.0 and the potential of NFT-based gaming also correlated to Gamestop, I already know and make tons and tons of money with the early versions of said assets. Since the % with staking, airdrops etc. is around 1000% per year for me right now if nothing changes, I am currently around 25% into different crypto, pretty complex subject and I do not want to further deepen this, since this seems to be quite the controversial topic still.
So, in case of this scenario, I would like to get everyone's opinion on this and potentially discuss about that in the comments. In order to get knocked out, the stocks mentioned above would need to fall 20% in total. In case of no crash, they would be my go to investments, ontop of a few other non mentioned with the same principal. Again, this is purely theoretical, I do not want to discuss whether or not it is happening, but what you would do in case it would.
TLDR: How would you hedge against a potential market crash ala 2008 due to Evergrande and Gamestop, or just generally if you are not familiar with the topics.

2021.10.18 16:01 elliotk20 After 10 days, I finally figured out what post op bad breath tastes like

It's like when you're eating a chicken wing and, because momma didn't raise no bitch, you go to finish nibbling at one of the burnt ends, but you bite too deep and you get a burnt bone marrow explosion.
That, but for weeks.
Guess you could say I've had lots of painful hours alone thinking about random bs.

2021.10.18 16:01 puzzle-game I'm straight 99% of the time, but when I do nofap for extended periods of time, gay fantasies start to creep in. What does that mean?

I wrote this after like 1.5 weeks of nofap just because I was having the fantasy pretty much non-stop, to the point that it's what finally broke me.
I'm a card carrying straight dude, and would NEVER act on anything like this (I guess I would compare this fantasy to the way women have rape fantasies). How common is this?

2021.10.18 16:01 CasualRascal LPT don't sit with your leg/foot under your butt. It can lead to knee and/or pelvic injuries down the line.

You can search through a bunch of sources on Google saying something similar but recently my mother came back from a visit with the chiro talking about a similar problem.
She said she had some pelvic nerve pain that would flare up while she'd sit at her desk.
The chiro asked, "Do you sit with a foot under you?" and she answered affirmatively. He advised to stop as it can pull your pelvis out of alignment gradually due to the imbalance placed by your foot.
