Who do you love now? HOVERBIKES. Yes, one of the key bits from this week’s Star Citizen Around the Verse episode focuses on the design and development of hoverbikes. Sorry, “grav-lev vehicles.” The original implementation, CIG says, was actually a bit too easy for the player, a little too detached from the terrain. The new model actually requires the player to react to the terrain underneath as well as monitor the level of thrust to keep on keepin’ on. The episode also covers playable female characters – specifically, the process of mapping and retooling animations to work for the female model, which as the devs note is significantly more complicated than just slapping the male character into girl clothes or porting the female NPCs over and saying boom, you’re playable. Meanwhile, in a post about the Idris upgrade kit from last month, this week CIG effectively announced an expansion to its insurance system, specifically to cover items, not just … [Read more...] about Star Citizen: Hoverbikes, female character models, and item insurance
Do i need insurance
*Ahem* Pardon me while I go and have a nerdgasm — OH YES YES YES YESSSSSS THAT’S IT RIGHT THERE!!! Okay, now that that’s out of my system, if I even have any readers left, I solemnly swear to never ever do that again. But as you know, this week’s Star Wars: The Old Republic Friday update is the one I’ve been waiting for — not-so-patiently, I might add — for more than half a year now ever since Bioware started rolling out the class videos and profiles. In fact, I’ve actually been geeking out since early yesterday afternoon, as that was when IGN first released their exclusive coverage on the Bounty Hunter video and interview. Yes, the Bounty Hunter. My class of choice, the one I’ve set my sights on for my main character ever since it was announced, has finally gotten its update. I love how each class trailer so far has featured a “hook” or a main theme to build the video around. For the Trooper, it’s honor and duty. … [Read more...] about Bounty Hunters?

Are you a financial advisor wondering how to get more leads online? Are you struggling to convert your prospects into clients? Read on to learn one marketing channel which will help you to establish yourself as an authority, and get more clients in the most renowned way. Personal finance or finance in any form used to be like rocket science for me until recently. The only thing I know about personal finance so far is that we need to earn, invest under some section such as 80C, 80D etc.. to save taxes, and file our income tax return. A few months ago, I got in touch with a chartered accountant/personal financial advisor/wealth management guy because I was taking out a loan to buy a flat. It was then when I realized how important personal financial planning is for everyone, including you and me. This article is not about the importance of personal finance, but is instead directed to all those personal financial advisors and wealth … [Read more...] about Why Your Personal Finance Business Needs a Blog Right Away!
Whenever I visit a blog that I haven’t come across before, I try to find out how different it is from others or what makes it interesting. Not just that. I also notice things that I don’t like in it. Your blog might be very popular. But it wouldn’t stop me from finding things I don’t like. I can’t stop myself from doing it. Over the past few months I started curating such a list in my Evernote and I’m sharing it here. And I believe most of them can be fixed (if you think it must be fixed) as none of them is technical in nature (if it’s a technical problem then it’s you who created it). But hey, it’s just my personal view and hence there’s a good chance that you would disagree with me — with some or all of them. :D 1. Hiding Dates From Blog Posts It is one of the most annoying thing that I see on blogs nowadays and it’s a common thing among the ‘so-called’ professional bloggers. Well, I know why … [Read more...] about 30 Things I Absolutely Hate About Your Blog
