Re: Global warming?

+1 me too, thankfully at least there is the Climate Alliance...I hope that can limit some of the damage until another 3 years pass.

D1/D2 SP single levels of high quality? (Non-XL)

Basically what the title of the thread says. What are some? Anything you can think of would be appreciated (of course you can make a new post or edit the post if you think of something you'd initially omitted). It could also be a small mission that is not as well known. Only restriction is no XL stu...

Re: Descent videos

I really liked the music choices from a glance at least...doing non-midi and just playing it in the background is a creative idea IMO. :) And it's well-credited too, so you know what the source is! No hunting around necessary.

Re: Multi-robot bosses - how do they work?

Entropy 2 Level 3 must be disguise of either fire or ice boss, as it is only vulnerable to matter. But I think it moves like AF Level 3 boss (which is disguise of D1 Medium Lifter!), does not teleport (like any robot with invulnerabilities normally will).

Re: Descent videos

Definitely a question for Sirius, but I'm guessing it's so that the other player has placed to explore in co-op.

Re: Descent videos

@Sirius You mention 'challenging in co-op but beatable', yet clearly the mission IS beatable in single player too (save Level 12 coldstart), just VERY challenging, and probably still quite hard even on continuous and with deaths allowed (as long as not 'game over', of course). What was your intent a...

Re: Descent videos

@Sirius How are you supposed to handle Level 2 cold start no death? I can't even come close, even on Hotshot. Can't even reliably clear way to the energy center.

Re: Descent videos

Beating AF on Insane with few saves in incredibly impressive, IMO, no matter how many attempts. And definitely a lot of good endurance! :) It surprised me too when I first heard Levels 2 and 3 are most evil, usually a mission only gets harder as you go further. But you don't have Gauss, that could b...

I looked at a North America temperature map and the last week has been warmer than normal in southern Manitoba, but the last two weeks combined and the month-to-date have been colder than normal.

Some of the absolutely craziest weather whiplash I've seen even for the standards of where I live: A week ago, it was no higher than -11C all day, -20C at night. With several inches of snow on the ground. Between late Wednesday (10th) and early Friday (12th) it was +13C or warmer (as high as +17C) f...

As for warm and dry winters, it looks like some cold did come into the PNW in 2013/14. But 2014/15 was record warm. Both were quite cold winters in the Eastern USA, however. 2015/16 was very warm by February 2016 in the PNW though February 2015 was warmer still. I definitely saw the drought stretchi...

Southern California has been ridiculously hot lately with destructive fires (like Thomas). Last winter though you had beneficial rain for the long term drought. That same pattern meant no winter here in the Eastern USA though. It was 17-20C for a week straight in February (against normal around 4C) ...

Yeah that Eastern North America cold snap was a big one. 2014 and early 2015 had them even more frequently. It was hard for me to believe at the time that the whole globe was burning up heat records! But most of the timbre since mid 2015 it's been really warm. Here the coldest in the last two weeks ...

Re: Global warming?

Global warning is serious and cold spells don't disprove it. The globe as a whole had record heat recently THREE years in a row from 2014-2016, and these records were not broken, they were smashed. And 2017 was still on a far higher level of warmth than any year before 2015. In the USA, the last thr...
