    Bridgeburner got a reaction from Tigeh in Tier 8 French Premium Heavy - AMX M4 mle 49   
    This tank is so fucking sexy. As a person who has been waiting for eons for the 2nd French Heavy Line, I'll take any excuse for more French HTs

    Must be bridgey then. I have met him once, and it happened to be at a cosplay event. These are undeniable facts.

    Yes, apparently Western "civilization" only begun post-French Revolution and American independence... :rolleyes:. The "West" or "Western" is not an analogue for political liberalism, it refers to a civilization that has a far more complex, nuanced and wholly hierarchical history than the cursory examination you've afforded it. 

    What you've referred to (political liberalism) is not only an anomaly but an aberration as far as "Western civilization" is concerned, prior to which a caste system of monarchy, feudal nobility and priesthood ruled over a mostly homogeneous ethno-religious group comprised of artisanal guild workers, merchants and serfs. This goes for all the associated Indo-European civilizations you've mentioned (and forgotten to mention) as well. This tired meme that somehow Western civilization is "American/post-bastille France"(freedom, liberty, etc) in DNA has got to go, when what you refer to as Western (political liberalism) is merely a modern mutation of "traditional" Western society. Political liberalism is more specifically, secularized and de-coupled tenets of Christian theology 

    Also,science wasn't "invented" by political liberalism, this is cringey. Rule of law dates back to the Code of Hammurab,   and also early Vedic and Abrahamic theology which predates even Graeco-Roman civilization
     

    There is nothing remotely "politically liberal" about the USSR or NSDAP Germany, both which played pivotal and instrumental roles in "taking man to the stars". Fact is, technological progress has occurred time and time again independent of any sort of political environment, and is more dependent on material factors like wealth concentration and geographical/geopolitical stressors.

    Post your abominations




    Gotta do something about that poo-river. And my urban growth has been completely haphazard and unplanned. Taking a lot of lessons from this into the next city - namely urban rail networks and highways that enter the city centre. That said, chaotic, organic growth is pleasing, I just can't bring myself to demolish parts of my city to make it more "efficient"

    It's been nearly 12 years since SimCity:4 and the fact that not a single dev has managed to put out something remotely resembling SC4 in quality is disturbing. Hell, I had to play Banished to get my city building crack. The less said about Cities XXL and Simcity (5) 2013, the better, with the warning, do not buy, fuck EA, etc.

    Anyway, the short of it is, in about 6 day Cities Skylines is coming out. It's being published by Paradox Interactive and is developed by Colossal order (who are responsible for Cities in Motion 1/2), a small Finnish studio. Unlike SC (5) you aren't going to be limited to a single 2kmx2km area, the maximum size of a city within limitations is 9 tiles that comprise 36 sq Kms. If you have the hardware for it, you can potentially expand to more than that. No online DRM bullshit either. Oh and the devs have come out with a commitment to mod support. And curved roads. I'm sold.

    Here are some screenshots
















    Bonus: Developing world Bus simulator




    Bonus 2: Rollercoaster Tycoon 5




    The aesthetic is clean, almost too clean,but it's enjoyable almost in a Chicago Worlds Fair "model city/City of the Future" way . They've hinted at releasing future free content that allows one to opt for more classical buildings rather than a Euro-suburbia look.  

    General FAQ

    Videos
    I mostly detest LPers but Quill18 has actually managed to put out some decent videos, and I ended up watching the entirety of his LP series up to this point. His commentary is on point and generally free from the melodramatic shit that seems to characterize a lot of LPers. 

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83VFQmGh1J0

    Arumba has also put out a bunch of vids but I haven't watched any of them as of now

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkgT0QXyRgM

    Finally there is the escapist streamer (whos screenshot I posted earlier) who has already developed a mid-sized city, the VOD link to his stream is here

    Paradox lifted the blanket ban on media so you should be seeing more streamers/videos come out within the next few days. GMG has a 10USD discount currently on Cities Skylines and at 20(30) USd its pretty reasonable.
