Uhh on this monday 30.5.6022 (2022 for many who follow that wrong timeline set by oldest storybook) i returned home after couple days travels. Moments after i got scared cause of my dear desktop rig’s behavior. Powah didn’t turn on as it normally does & that made me think of fried momma board or it’s battery.Gpu had it’s bright light on so i knew that Psu was still in okey condition. Naturally battery would’ve been almost hundred times cheaper & easier problem than buying new motherboard.Luckily rig turned on with press & hold powah button for five scs. Decided to try it after pondering on what to do next. I imagine that my dear rig had it’s powah turned on like this, came to be cause of lil charge had gathered into Psu.. Thought of long time to upgrade my desktop rig & eary this spring i set the date for it to july so can fulfill some long time plans.
Don’t know why it happened after i shutdown on saturday lil after noon, unplugged from extension cord and went to travels for two days. Glad i didn’t go check the battery before tried the press button for longer as must be done in some cases. With that mean bsod, some random freezes etc. That check up would’ve been a waste of time.First time for this to happen for me in eighteen years of being in pc camp ⏳ After got that solved i went for a groceries trip. Had to do it even felt very knackered from today’s early wake up & travels 🥴 On last two days i watched two Hockey World Championship games that was held in Finland. Many of em were played in new Arena built in Tampere City. It even has small hotel room with a nice view down to hockey ring. I can imagine that it can be rented also at other times. I watched the final Fin-Can with mom as she likes to watch hockey when Suomi team plays Nice win by Finland & winning goal was scored in overtime. OT was played with twenty mins period on 3vs3.
I think is crazy to set overtime by using 20mins length for today’s three vs three rule. Overtime in whc should be played with four vs four and ten mins length. Very talented Mikael “Airwave scorer back in the days” Granlund made beautiful 2-1 score during normie playtime. Mentioned that cause it was the prettiest in the match. I wanted to go & keep company to mom so she wouldn’t have to watch it alone. She also likes to watch some winter sports like skiing & ski jumping. Track & Field during summer & her fav. from track & field is javelin throw. Here’s some other ways that you can try if run into similar problem with your Desktop Pc. Desktop Pc because of Gpu’s light is mentioned on first section. ‘How to repair a Computer that won’t turn on‘ I wish good week & launch of June to everyone 🍀🌮🍵🙋♂️ Pst: Remember to recycle, use Fabric Bags instead of plastic & avoid using single plastic always when possible.
Dune: Spice Wars is a 4x Genre Pc game set into beautiful world created by late talented Frank Herbert. It was released to shameful Early Access (some are fine for Early Access release) 26.4.6022 (2022) on Steam platform. Many gamers have done excellent decision: Stopped buying product in early access a.k.a ‘consumers used as beta & bug testers‘ 🙂 Personally i see good exception when Early Access used for literally indie company game that seems legit in many ways. Also when their product is based on known franchise & it follows the source material 110%.On this case is based on & doesn’t follow 110% & current price is 10€ too high cause size of current package. I’ll buy once even small part of campaign is added & all characters mentioned on the book(s) match 110%. Is said by one snarky Dune: Spice Wars community manager that ‘beta & bugs testing phase’ is set to last 1x year.
Also said (or he quoted someone from dev team) by same weirdCommunity Manager: “Modernising the messenger only makes the message more powerful.” <– *Picard Facepalm* Why is gender-swapping considered “modernising a character“? Are men not “modern” enough for Shiro Games company? How does Kynes as female & leader of Fremen (not in Frank’s Book), fit in with the conservative & patriarchal nature of Fremen culture? Isn’t that cultural revisionism/erasure? Isn’t that sexism? Since one iconic character is already shown with wrong gender in Dune: Spice Wars steam page, in game should be a customization option for that character. That way keep the ability to being true to the book & really match that ‘iconic character’ that’s mentioned at one of Dune: Spice Wars news updates. Shiro Games is lying atm. when they added his name to list & it’s not “his” on their semi Dune franchise game 😦
About Gameplay week after of shameful ‘Early Access model’
Atm. Dune: Spice Wars lacks many important things like even small piece of campaign (would be ok for it to come out in parts), at least 1x more unit (tank maybe) & bigger map. Not to forget less cartoon network unicorn graphics. Faction leaders don’t really talk (same as in Civilization. Why ‘Shiro Games’ took this cheap route ?) I expected them to have at least some voiced content.. Combat is too simplified, I think they should add more variety to it. Such as unique skill for some units & weapon systems. Currently its all based on close quarters infantry, which is basically just making a task force of different buffs & destroying everything on its path with supply drops. Sadly Shai-Huluds are trash right now as they’re not a threat at all. Harvesters have ‘auto’ evasion for them 😀 😦 They should be more randomized & give them purpose of hunt, then they wouldn’t be so predictable & easy to avoid.
The largest map is still smaller than absolute most of RTS or turn-based strategy games I have played 😦 There’s only 5 unit types. No armoured & no flying machines. Scouts that are useless once the map is explored. The 4x part is done well & everyone who says this game has too much things to do, is used to playing those with lil focus & playfield.Good that it’s not possible to dominate on every field as otherwise several houses added would be pointless. Currently at 1.5.6022 the average game session lasts about ~2-3h depending on playstyle. Shameful work by devs 😦 Why so many games in these days look like they’re made for children 😦 I dislike this nickelodeon art style esp. in my favorite Fantasy Franchise / Universe.
World where Planet Arrakis is located isn’t meant to be shown as morning show where kids adventure into Arrakis & see bright unicorn theme 😦 I prefer a darker & more realistic look. As of now ‘Dune: Spice Wars’ has hard time beating Dune 1 or 2 in immersion & the cartoony art style doesn’t help here.. If ‘Shiro Games’ developers not gonna change graphics to better then hope that workshop is opened before 1x year long crap E.Access phase ends 🙂 Many talented modders who are waiting to give us that certain matching iconic character who isn’t one in Dune: Spice Wars even Shiro Games claims opposite. Here can see their false claim: Shameful lie from Shiro Games company Then darker visuals, but keep balance with light & dark areas.
Positives & Negatives week after E.Access launch
Pros: Overall Arrakis feeling cause of nice ambience. Sense of space, atmosphere. Cons: This is more like ‘unoptimized copy of Northgard‘ & not what you expect for 30€. Esp. when released as Early Access sale model. Lack of interesting Diplomacy. No weight on battles & often many encounters can’t be called as one. Lack of Units & one out of 5x units loses value (Scout) after map is fully explored 😦 Shai-Hulud is a joke when comes to their threat now at ‘consumers used for bugs testing‘ phase. Hope their behavior is changed to more dangerous later on the roadmap. Lack of roadmap for consumers, hope it comes within next three months. Harkonnen advisor has female voice & that’s against the lore. Harvesting automation: This entire mechanic feels odd as they auto dodge worms. So them being attacked by worms has 0 effect on progress & sadly they don’t auto redeploy. This also feeds into the Spice feeling like a dull resource. AI can be won by clicking their ranged units with your melee. You won’t lose a fight. If you pull back damaged units & send them back in, you won’t even lose a unit 😦
Ending Thoughts & something
Hopefully many important changes & additions arrive. before this year’s september. As of now this game isn’t made by Arrakis Fans & not for Arrakis fans. it’s merely derived product that cheaply & with no shame surfs on the Dune IP wave 😦 Is mindboggling & sad to know that there’s prop. zero story & voice overed content made so far. If that’s the case then most likely we’ll see some of it only early 6023 (2023) 😦 I totally adore this Universe with avid heart created by Frank Herbert. That means love the books, telly mini-series, boardgame, Pc Game & movies that have come out so far. Happy to support new Dune Movie via HBO Max where i keep Subscription forever ❤ Hope that HBO Max’s Dune: Sisterhood series production that’s about to launch on this year goes well.
“Playing with the Fremen faction means doing the same colonial design systems as House Atreides & House Harkonnen. Working to pay Imperial taxes & voting in the Landsraad, even in a limited cap, just doesn’t make sense. It’s opposite of immersion & misunderstanding of why the Fremen exist.”
I’ve bought books since -90’s & in recent years as ebooks via Amazon.de & Uk website. Seeing how Dune name is used without shame just to try & get easy cash in with less work as possible is sad 😦 I’m fine with buying new Arrakis Pc game even when it’s not not like Dune 2k / Emperor: Battle for Dune RTS 🙂 Dune: Spice Wars on it’s current state just isn’t worth of 30eur price tag & being shallow as it is 😦 I’ll update this or make new review (with vid or without) once (if) proper changes & additions come to Dune: Spice Wars. Not buying it is very sad cause of 15+ years waiting for new Dune game.
I give rating 6.5/10 now week after E.Access launch 😦
Now as the big light bulb on the sky keeps lighting up the lands every day for few months, it’s important not to forget that millions of people are destroying the beautiful life on this planet. Way too many humans living with other eye closed. Sign up & share. Update for that page comes after it has reached lil more support. That is for the well being of innocent creatures & the planet. We earthlings a.k.a consumers have the power to make the changes that make living on this planet easier for every sentient being. Later on from may to august enjoy absorbing the precious d three from that big light bulb on the sky 🌞🍵🥗 Recommended time of the day to do sunbathing is at noon & between three to four pm. Here’s a good song that’s for waiting those rainy summer & autumn evenings. #SpringHoliday #PlanetKeepsMoving #EmbraceNewSeason
I was target of scam apartment & then rescued by friendly home owner.
The landlord owns all built six apartments on the apt. building shown below. He has not renewed the power distribution cabinet that is in the hallway behind the small door. Today, even a stove has its own 20a fuse. This house is ancient with only 1x 10A fuse per apartment. I noted him about not telling me that he hasn’t renewed the elect. distrib. cabinet. 2x electricians with whom I spoke on 10.12 said this should not be allowed today. 🤔 I’ll add pic of it on next thorsday after returned other pair of keys. That 1x 10A fuse set to work with completely to one apartment is an ancient system from times when there were no modern tech appliances & their bigger energy consumption. Hope that he won’t manage to deceive others in future. Yes, i had extreme bad luck. I just wanted to find a quieter neighborhood / residential area & at the same time home closer to basic amenities & services. Not troubling location like the previous home had. Then also the goal was to be closer to my mother so I could help her by cooking her tasty & healthy cruelty free meals & help with tech probs.
That scam apartment had a better distance than previous where I lived for 2yrs. One where lived couple years was 6km from the mother’s home & 5km from the city center. On that scam home the distance was 1km, but the owner made a big mistake by omitting 2x important things at lease signing 😦 The one & only fuse sharing powah broke down during the first evening after moved in. Was knackered & planned to cook & put furniture etc. to their place. It happened when there was only a stove’s one burner, oven at 150c, kitchen & living room ceiling lamp turned on. Then when the electricity was off, after a moment of wonder i called the owner of the apartment. 🎞
He asked questions about how things were when home felt into darkness & told me how not to use certain equipment at the same time, eg a coffee maker takes more than 1300W & many other lots. The walls there are cold even when the apartment’s 2x radiators being hot for days. Esp. cold area is the one that’s meant only for 1-2 person sized bed. No radiatior built to wall on that room & thin cold walls. Many years ago I lived 2 years in a wooden house that has two floors & a total of 9x apartments. It wasn’t cold regardless of the degree of outdoor space. It also had a modern power distribution center a.k.a switchboard inside the apartment. Scam apartment where i lived at end of last year & owned by cheapie has 3x windows of which 2x contains only 1x glass so not done by today’s construction rules 😦 The middle window is modern with double glazing & good frames. So if the electricity is off, etc. or you are working remotely & so on & would like to heat the apartment for an hour, then the other electricity consumers need to be off except the ceiling lamp.. 😦
Better apartment & area to live in. Time to build comfy path forward.
Time here in week long new apartment has already been better than past few months in the one where lived two years & that above mentioned scam / mistake one. Good that can do some basic routine like things as days go by & not shivering through the day as happened in both before this. More so in that house that has six apartments & all owned by cheapie landlord. Yesterday’s sunday evening went through with unfortunate event. Feel that one mistake during that was meant to happen cause if it hadn’t then i wouldn’t have found my bank card that lost on a way home. That ‘meant to happen accident‘ here in new better home was about me leaving plastic measuring can on one of stove’s burner that was heating up.
I noticed it moments later, but was already too late as bottom was half melted away. Before this mistake i had a grocery store trip & that card dropped on the way home. I had put it into jacket’s inner pocket with phone & keys at bottom. Naturally it attached to phone & dropped to ground when i shot a short video for mom so she can see nice apt. buildings in the area 😯 I moved twice between store & home after that measuring can turning to waste. Only around eight a clock I got to settle down & do planned things which included cooking first meal of the day & other things. Before that i had to walk about four and half km cause of that bad luck & that happened before any nutrition to body 🥴
Good that at the end of all that had posit. outcome & learned one thing that prevents it from happening again =) It’s that ‘always put your payment card to wallet right after used it at store‘ 💁♂️ I didn’t update this ‘Looking for a Serenity’ for a while cause of that scam apartment move in (the one where lived only about three weeks) & no good time even lil before that when had bad living times at home where i lived for two years. This past week been a welcome change after lived three weeks in scam apartment. Had to use big sum of important savings when made the 2nd home change in such short-time period. Wiuh so to sum up: Feels good to be able to walk with light clothing after wake up & can do daily things without shivering while at home. Often these were not possible even on the apt. where lived before the scam home (lived for 2x years).
During low winter temp. (-8c & below) days indoor temp. was below eighteen c. 🥶 It is by law that when rental apt’s indoor temp. goes below eighteen then you have right to ask reduced rent for that month. Naturally i didn’t cause moving out planned to two weeks away. Floor layout was perfect on that apartment & silent small houses area so if not for those crappies that prevent normie time living, i would’ve gladly lived there for a long time. Now with high hopes looking forward to living here at downtown in apt. owned by friendly landlord. Hoping to get distant plans like work etc. to go without probs. #LifeGaveBranchesButPushedOn #NoFlowerFieldsAllTheTime #KeepBelieving #LifeHappens #Veganuary #VeganForTheAnimals #VeganForThePlanet #VeganForEmpathy I listened this band a lot back in -90’s I wish successful new week & rest of January to everyone ❄🥑🍆🥝🍜🥙🥪🍵🎆⏳🖖🙋♂️
Body and it’s parts like joints & muscles saying that no more this pain please & head is like stuffed balloon about to pop. No sneezy probs at least for now so that’s good. *Knocks the wood*. Yesterday the minor fever attacked & last night was big struggle cause woke up close to dozen times. Today has been better with many ways, but still shills & aches. Also headaches at times & since my policy is to not take synth. painkillers, i hope that headaches won’t turn worse. Usually they haven’t when fought against cold or fever. This happened at bad time because of interrupting my proj. called “clean the apartment out of all things that you don’t need for the new one” & i’m missing some useful fav. home remedies that have used against these for couple decades. Tomorrow i get some of them & rest early next week. All of them to be useful in future & some i use even when not ill cause they spice up the culinary goodies.
Hopefully this condition goes away before next week & then get to finish that proj. Early this week found possible new home that will be clearly better than current as it doesn’t have bathroom with leaky window & same problem is at living room. Only green beret has enough courage to have a shower on this apartment during winter. On last winter i went to shower at downstairs where sauna facilities are located. Was going to add image of cuppa with tasty ginger tea that had also had garlic, turmeric & grounded black pepper. Just lil bit of black pepper because it enhances turmeric’s powah. Couldn’t add it as site kept saying that format not supported. It was in jpeg & taken with phone, but after looked into file details it must be some weird lil detail that blocked the plan. Looking forward to rejuvenate time with this tasty natural heal bomb I’ve made this few times since late last year & totally good feels from it. I recom. to drink it slowly, but still when it’s warm. Usb Cuppa Heater is good if stay near Laptop, Tablet or Pc after made it. Wish warm & good autumn & rest of the year to everyone who lives in northern hemisphere. Good part also to everyone else who lives on planet tellus =)
