[17:37] <Trisemigistus> Howdy howdy
[17:37] <Regox> It's a damn fine bridge
[17:37] <Trisemigistus> Yeah, Cor_Kaitos did a good job.
[17:38] <Trisemigistus> did you know he left a book when he departed from the server?
[17:38] <Regox> Nope
[17:38] <Trisemigistus> ill go retrieve it.
[17:39] <Trisemigistus> where did i put it...
[17:41] <Trisemigistus> i hope i didn't lose it.
[17:41] <Regox> Enderchest?
[17:42] <Trisemigistus> empty
[17:44] <Trisemigistus> well, i guess i lost it.
[17:44] <Regox> Summation?
[17:45] <Trisemigistus> Not really something I can summarize. He was kinda all over the place.
[17:45] <Trisemigistus> 12 pages with his own craziness, theories about hte universe, and a whole lot more
[17:46] <Regox> Neat
[17:46] <Trisemigistus> cant believe i lost it.
[17:46] * scottyscotty25 (scottyscotty25@scottyscotty25) has joined #main
[17:46] <Regox> Hey
[17:46] <Trisemigistus> hello scotty.
[17:46] <scottyscotty25> hey
[17:46] <scottyscotty25> new start to the server ?
[17:47] <Trisemigistus> quite a while ago, yes.
[17:47] <Regox> It happens with some regularity, meant to keep it fresh
[17:47] <Regox> There'll probably be a new map when 1.9 hits
[17:47] <Trisemigistus> Have you seen the adverts for the new Minecraft Story Mode?
[17:48] <Trisemigistus> They're advertising it like it's a separate game.
[17:48] <Regox> I have, but not my cup of tea
[17:48] <Regox> Fallout's the next big game I'm waiting on
[17:48] <scottyscotty25> cant wait for fallout
[17:48] <Trisemigistus> I'm on the fence about fallout. I'm sure it'll be fun, but I'm more excited for the next ES
[17:48] <Regox> That'll be a while
[17:48] <Trisemigistus> whatever and whenever that may be.
[17:49] <Trisemigistus> I know.
[17:49] <Regox> Also looking forward to the GTA halloween update
[17:49] <Trisemigistus> I haven't been able to log in all day, kinda ruined my happy mood cuz I really wanted to
[17:49] <Trisemigistus> play today, since its my day off.
[17:50] <Trisemigistus> i wonder what jeem is up to
[17:51] <Regox> Log into this or GTA?
[17:51] <Trisemigistus> GTA.
[17:51] <Regox> Ah
[17:51] <Regox> Let me guess, you run it through steam?
[17:51] <Trisemigistus> after some investigating, it's hitting a lot of people.
[17:51] <Trisemigistus> Yes I do.
[17:52] <Regox> They changed password standard requirements, broke everything
[17:52] <Trisemigistus> rumor is that Steam is doing maintinance today, which just so happens to be
[17:52] <Trisemigistus> the day the lowrider update came out.
[17:52] <Regox> It was fixed as far as I know
[17:52] <Trisemigistus> I changed my password already, hasn't helped.
[17:52] <Regox> I got on earlier
[17:52] <Regox> Lowriders be expensive as heck
[17:53] <Trisemigistus> so I've heard.
[17:53] <Trisemigistus> good thing thats not my style.
[17:53] <Regox> Upgrading my van to max cost around 1m
[17:53] <Regox> Just gotta wait for them insane halloween cars now
[17:54] <Trisemigistus> any descriptions?
[17:54] <Regox> Let me grab a link
[17:54] <Trisemigistus> kk

[17:56] <Regox> Wrong button?
[17:56] <Trisemigistus> >badly compressed packet
[17:56] <Trisemigistus> so many weird errors in minecraft lately
[17:56] <Trisemigistus> also those cars look like fun, i might save up for them
[17:57] <Regox> And now you can store them now you can obtain a 4th garage
[17:57] <Trisemigistus> awesome.
[17:57] <Trisemigistus> I might sell one of my high end apartments and use that to spread my safehouses out
[17:58] <Regox> Now all they need to do is let us store emergency vehicles
[17:58] <Trisemigistus> Right now I have weazel plaza and the apartment right across the street
[17:58] <Trisemigistus> and then one all the way up at the top of the map, which is my classic car garage.
[17:58] <Regox> I have one up there, comes in handy
[17:58] <Trisemigistus> yes, it does.
[17:59] <Trisemigistus> Ill probably sell weazel plaza, move that apartment and/or garage further out east
[17:59] <Trisemigistus> then make the fourth somewhere in or near sandy shores.
[17:59] <Regox> They need to bring out a giant mansion DLC
[17:59] <Trisemigistus> Ye.
[18:00] <Trisemigistus> sell us that house that rich white prick owned on the west coast highway
[18:01] <Regox> Cheese

[18:13] <Trisemigistus> allo
[18:13] <Regox> Aloha
[18:13] <Cuppinator> hiya
[18:16] <Trisemigistus> the rail isn't finished yet.
[18:16] <Trisemigistus> one minor section of track left to lay, but i cba.
[18:17] <Trisemigistus> not like anyone would use it.
[18:17] <Cuppinator> *Shrugs*
[18:17] <Cuppinator> dooomit mojang release 1.9 and stuff
[18:17] <Regox> Yeah
[18:21] <Trisemigistus> so how you guys been?
[18:21] <Regox> Eh, same as always
[18:21] <Regox> You?
[18:21] <Cuppinator> well enough, been pretty busy with class
[18:21] <Trisemigistus> I'm okay. Starting to get bored with life and looking for the next step.
[18:21] <Trisemigistus> Probably noticed I haven't been around much.
[18:22] <Trisemigistus> That's due to a mixture of work keeping me busy and tired, and King_Roy using the computer to play
[18:22] <Trisemigistus> Star Wars the Old Republic mmo
[18:23] <Regox> I haven't been on much either, been working on the car and a couple other things
[18:24] <Trisemigistus> I wish Firefighter was closer than Texas or I'd probably go meet him.
[18:25] <Trisemigistus> My friend from California might be getting minecraft soon
[18:25] <Trisemigistus> if he does ill invite him here.
[18:26] <Cuppinator> :/. Trying to make a new seafloor look normal'ish
[18:27] <Trisemigistus> whatever you're doing, add 3 layers of gravel.
[18:27] <Trisemigistus> sand might be better here.
[18:27] <Cuppinator> aye
[18:27] <Trisemigistus> but uh, what happened here?
[18:28] <Cuppinator> br sphere happened, :P
[18:28] <Trisemigistus> whats that
[18:28] <Cuppinator> a command which I used to rid some land
[18:28] <Trisemigistus> ah.
[18:28] <Cuppinator> making the port a little wider
[18:29] <Trisemigistus> i miss some of the old structures ive built.
[18:29] <Trisemigistus> is it considered hipster to deny being a hipster?
[18:30] <Cuppinator> Dunno
[18:30] <Regox> Only if everyone else is doing it
[18:30] <Trisemigistus> people have called me a hipster before, then i said im not, to which they replied that just compound
[18:30] <Trisemigistus> s me being a hipster.
[18:30] <Regox> Eh, just be you, their opinion doesn't particularly matter
[18:31] <Trisemigistus> That's what I always do, I'm just curious if by societal stanards I could be labeled a hipster.
[18:31] <Regox> Dunno
[18:31] <Regox> It's not a big thing in aus
[18:31] <Regox> Maybe in the cities
[18:32] <Trisemigistus> anyone been active here lately?
[18:32] <Regox> Not particularly
[18:32] <Cuppinator> I have hardly been on myself tbh
[18:32] <Regox> Minecraft is an old game by PC standards
[18:33] <Trisemigistus> still one of the top games in the world right now.
[18:33] <Trisemigistus> since roys been hogging the computer, i got myself watch dogs and south park the stick of truth for
[18:33] <Trisemigistus> ps3.
[18:34] <Regox> How was watch dogs?
[18:34] <Trisemigistus> watch dogs is pretty fun. the way they do their online multiplayer has lead to some
[18:34] <Trisemigistus> very entertaining situations.
[18:35] <Trisemigistus> Do you know anything about how they do online?
[18:35] <Regox> Nope
[18:35] <Cuppinator> nope
[18:35] <Trisemigistus> Alright, so the base premise of the game is you're a hacker, of course.
[18:35] <Trisemigistus> Their multiplayer isn't as direct as you may imagine, but fun nonetheless.
[18:36] <Trisemigistus> Pretty much, you can accept a hacking contract which injects you into another players game
[18:36] <Regox> Neat
[18:36] <Trisemigistus> and they are unaware of your presence, especially since the game, from their point of view
[18:36] <Trisemigistus> changes your character to look like a pedestrian npc.
[18:36] <Regox> And you try to kill them?
[18:36] <Trisemigistus> You're supposed to hack the other players phone then blend in with the crowd
[18:37] <Trisemigistus> as you install a back door on their phone.
[18:37] <Trisemigistus> once the hack is initiated, they're aware of you and have to seek you out.
[18:37] <Regox> And you have to evade for X time?
[18:37] <Trisemigistus> Ye, until the backdoor installation is 100%
[18:38] <Trisemigistus> which takes like five minutes.
[18:38] <Trisemigistus> They can also use Jam Comms on you, which freezes the installation for about 10-30 seconds
[18:38] <Trisemigistus> depending on their skill.
[18:38] <Trisemigistus> you can cause blackouts which hinder camera and information use.
[18:39] <Trisemigistus> So, one funny instance was I accepted a contract to hack another player.
[18:39] <Trisemigistus> when I was injected into his game session, he was already being hunted by the police
[18:39] <Trisemigistus> I used the police as cover to get close to him, since they werent after me
[18:40] <Trisemigistus> He ended up running into an office buildings lobby, which had a lower floor you could see from the
[18:40] <Trisemigistus> ground floor
[18:40] <Trisemigistus> He ran down there and into a hallway, probably thought it had an exit, but it ended up being a dead
[18:40] <Trisemigistus> end
[18:40] <Trisemigistus> He turned around, and by this time I had caught up with him
[18:40] <Regox> Got pinned there by cops?
[18:41] <Trisemigistus> He saw me and knew I had to be a hacker, else why would I be down there, so he pulled his gun
[18:41] <Trisemigistus> Now, pause for a moment, when you're being hacked, there's 2 ways to stop it
[18:41] <Trisemigistus> 1. use your phones identification ability to identify the hacker when you see them
[18:42] <Trisemigistus> this closes the backdoor installation and the session ends by the hacker fleeing or being killed
[18:42] * scottyscotty25 (scottyscotty25@scottyscotty25) has joined #main
[18:42] <Cuppinator> hiya
[18:42] <Trisemigistus> the second option is to just outright kill the hacker, even if they've not been identified.
[18:42] <Regox> Hey
[18:42] <scottyscotty25> hey
[18:42] <Trisemigistus> So, this guy is in such a frenzy from the cops, he doesn't identify me, but I managed to get the
[18:43] <Trisemigistus> hack on him, so i turn tail and run back up to where the cops are.
[18:43] <Trisemigistus> I end up hiding in a small office room on the ground floor of the buildings lobby
[18:43] <Trisemigistus> with like 8 police officers out front of the door.
[18:43] <Regox> Nice
[18:43] <Trisemigistus> so not only is this guy being chased by the police, and being hacked by a player
[18:44] <Trisemigistus> he still has to seek me out, because he didnt identify me, and to do that has to get
[18:44] <Trisemigistus> through a wall of police.
[18:44] <Trisemigistus> neddless to say I was successful.
[18:44] <Regox> Do they lose money or somethign?
[18:44] <Regox> *something
[18:45] <Trisemigistus> They lose hacking reputation which every like few thousand rep you gain (or lose) a hacking buff.
[18:45] <Trisemigistus> one thing I do like about the game is that when someone else has successfuly hacked you
[18:46] <Trisemigistus> they highlight the persons character, even though solid material like cars and buildings
[18:46] <Trisemigistus> just to show you where they were.
[18:46] <Regox> Just to rub it in if you were close
[18:46] <Trisemigistus> yeah, and I've probably made at least one person throw their controller.
[18:47] <Trisemigistus> I like hiding in bushes next to buildings and fences, because it's a natural cover
[18:47] <Trisemigistus> and also blocks their phone from identifying me, so unless they bump into me running through
[18:47] <Trisemigistus> the bush, they're not going to find me
[18:47] <Trisemigistus> some people have ran past me countless times
[18:48] <Trisemigistus> I've also hid on top of train stations, and one time recently, i just ran circles around
[18:48] <Trisemigistus> a spine of rocks
[18:48] <Trisemigistus> the area where I initiated the hack was relatively flat and not much to hide behind
[18:49] <Trisemigistus> so i just kept the rocks between us as he ran around frantically looking.
[18:49] <Regox> You fiend
[18:49] <Trisemigistus> I also like this method of playing online with others because as long as you're online
[18:49] <Trisemigistus> someone could be lurking in the shadows trying to hack you.
[18:50] <Trisemigistus> adds a fair level of paranoia, which adds to the game experience because the guy you play as
[18:50] <Trisemigistus> has a fair amount of paranoia.
[18:50] <Trisemigistus> I've blown up pedestrian cars with my grenade launcher just cuz I thought they might be a hacker
[18:51] <Regox> Just kill everyone on sight
[18:51] <Trisemigistus> Yeah, or get a really fast car and just drive for a while.
[18:51] <Trisemigistus> Hackers have a five minute time limit to get close enough to hack you
[18:51] <Trisemigistus> and once they do they have 30 seconds to initiate the hack.
[18:52] <Trisemigistus> There's this one spot I've found on the roof of a building where you have to take
[18:52] <Trisemigistus> a construction elevator up to the roof
[18:52] <Trisemigistus> you use your phone to hack the controls.
[18:52] <Trisemigistus> but i can hide up there and keep the elevator by the roof
[18:52] <Trisemigistus> if it moves, i know someone is coming to hack me, and I just grenade launcher them
[18:53] <Trisemigistus> when they reach the top
[18:54] <Trisemigistus> man i really wanna play gta, why does steam have to have issues ;-;
[18:55] <Regox> Because steam
[18:55] <Trisemigistus> you guys should get command and conquer.
[18:55] <Regox> I have generals/zero hour
[18:56] <Trisemigistus> omahgerd, you should get shockwave 1.1 mod for zero hour and tunngle and play with me
[18:56] * scottyscotty25 (scottyscotty25@scottyscotty25§r) Quit (§escottyscotty25 left the game.)
[18:56] <Trisemigistus> shockwave reinvents and smooths out zero hour.
[18:57] <Trisemigistus> and tunngle is just like hamachi, but built for gamers, not office conferences.
[18:58] <Trisemigistus> once im done building king roy a computer, we're probably going to play the crap out
[18:58] <Trisemigistus> of shockwave.
[18:58] <Trisemigistus> him and I are pretty fairly matched.
[18:58] <Regox> I'm not the best, prefer aerial combat
[18:59] <Trisemigistus> I prefer the Nuclear General.
[18:59] <Trisemigistus> or the Special Weapons general, both chinese.
[18:59] <Regox> I have a mod that lets me capture other faction build units
[18:59] <Regox> So US rangers fighting alongside Emperor Overlord tanks
[18:59] <Trisemigistus> In the vanilla game you can just send an engineer to capture their command center
[18:59] <Trisemigistus> command it to build construction units, bam you can build their stuff.
[18:59] <Regox> Gotta get it out of their base though
[19:00] <Trisemigistus> True
[19:00] <Trisemigistus> but hte GLA also has a vanilla unit that can hijack any vehicle unit, including constructors.
[19:00] <Regox> Usually build a squad of heavily loaded combat chinooks, sweep in, land quickly, seize an
[19:01] <Regox> outlying constructor, load and retreat under fighter/bomber cover
[19:01] <Trisemigistus> not bad.
[19:01] <Trisemigistus> I have what's known as a 'turtle' stragety.
[19:01] <Trisemigistus> I aim heavily for bas defenses buffered with units along hte defensive line
[19:02] <Regox> Wish US could build bunkers
[19:02] <Trisemigistus> and use superweapons and general powers to lay seige to you while building up
[19:02] <Trisemigistus> massive tank groups to eventually send
[19:02] * Cuppinator (Cuppinator@§9Cuppinator§r) Quit (§eCuppinator left the game.)
[19:02] <Regox> I don't use superweapons much
[19:02] <Regox> I throw all kindsa resources at auroras
[19:03] <Trisemigistus> I usually put a 1 superweapon limiter on matches.
[19:03] <Trisemigistus> there was one match between me and roy where it was a two person map with a river
[19:03] <Trisemigistus> between us, and I was the nuclear general and he was the airforce general
[19:04] <Trisemigistus> Ihad what I called my 'iron curtain' of chinese gattling cannons, just a massive
[19:04] <Trisemigistus> field of them between us that shot down any incoming aircraft.
[19:04] <Regox> Nuclear missile OP
[19:04] <Trisemigistus> i tried building nukes, but he used his auroras to sonic boom past my defenses, take
[19:04] <Trisemigistus> out the nuke, then get shot down on their way back.
[19:05] <Trisemigistus> he'd also be bombing my wall of gattling cannons, which I was repairing as fast as he destroyed
[19:05] <Trisemigistus> after about two hours of this, unknowst to one another
[19:05] <Trisemigistus> we simoultaniously launched ground troops and tanks on eachothers base
[19:05] <Trisemigistus> it quickly became a race to see who could wip the others' base off the map first.
[19:07] <Trisemigistus> If you ever wanna play zero hour with either of us, let one of us know.
[19:07] <Trisemigistus> We do prefer the shockwave mod, tho. just sayin.
[19:09] <Trisemigistus> im gonna go see if gta wants to work yet, if not find something else to do.
