  1. Pokemon Go Map.

    Yup, I've seen the same in Greensboro, NC. Pokestops and a few gyms being removed because of tresspassers. I do think it's funny that the stats on gps spoofing aps soared immediately after Pokemon Go was released from beta. People in this area have accused me in person of cheating since I made trainer level 20 in a week. They didn't realize the advantage I had from my knowledge of Ingress. I already knew where all the good portals and hack routes were so I would burn through gear catching pidgys like crazy and then farm all that gear back in 20 minutes. Rinse and repeat.
  2. Pokestop info

    Not sure if this has been mentioned in the forums or not. It seems fairly common knowledge by now but I'll post it here for those who may not know about finding pokestops/gyms in far off areas. A few years before Pokemon Go was launched Niantic had released a game called Ingress. When they launched Pokemon Go they simply ported most of the portal locations from Ingress into Pokemon Go. Keep in mind there are some portals which were not included (too close together and other reasons). How does this help? Well, if you download and load Ingress for the sole purpose of making a player account there you will gain access to the Ingress Intel Map which will show all portal locations for Ingress world wide. So if you're planning a trip somewhere in another state and want to see where the Pokemon Go areas are then you can look it up on the Ingress Map. Again keep in mind that not all Ingress Portals were made into Pokemon Go places of interest. Also the Ingress map will not tell you if the spot has a Pokestop or a Gym. It stands to reason areas with a LOT of portals in a smaller zone will have several pokestops and some gyms. I am not advertising only posting this as a resource for Pokemon Go players. If anyone wants more information specifically on how to get to this information just send me a PM. If there are enough requests in my in box I'll ask permission to post the info here. It involves external links to another game which is the only reason I'd ask the admins before posting it in the forums.
  3. So it's been something like a year since I've visited with ADK. I figured I would come back around. My gaming time has been deeply impacted by real life events but things are stable now. However my pc is currently a crap laptop until tax season. At that point I'll be building a gaming system.

      You might very well think that. I couldn’t possibly comment.

  5. Sorry I haven't been around MC this past week much, been pretty crazy here. I will be making appearances over the weekend though. :)

      All good man, it has been pretty slow as of late anyways. Check out the MC Admin spot. It is all about the shop for right now and I am still looking for a working vote system.

    @[member='DMSpooky'], Looooooved DAoC. I was so sad when WoW came out and the DAoC servers went to crap. Miss my Animist. My debuffing shrooms were so fun. And also miss my Bonedancer. :)  Good ole days, pouring hot oil. Also I miss the DAoC frontier. When the original puppy quest went in we organized a raid and won by causing the enemy to lag. We all summoned our puppies at once. Then they changed it so those pets couldn't be summoned out in the frontier. :p

    And a pic from back in the '90s. I think I was 19 in this pic. Right after I had been assigned to the 82nd. [attachment=1817:moi2.jpg]

  11. Meeting with Air Force Recuiter, Any Military Members?

    Let me start first and foremost by expressing my condolences on your mother's passing. I would like to say that if you are still in a healing phase from that you should wait a little while before deciding on military membership. That being said here is my own personal advice. Some may agree and others not. This is just my own perspective.   Served 3 years 82nd Airborne as a mortar infantry soldier. There are benefits and drawbacks to each branch. Having been a high-speed, hard charging hooah hooah guy before I urge everyone I speak with to weigh their options VERY carefully. Navy and Air Force have many more options for military jobs and careers in higher level technical fields. Those jobs and experience are great for continuing a career in civilian life. Army and Marines promote faster and have much more prestige attached to them for civilian recognition. Marine and Army service members tend to find an easier fit in Police and Fire departments and as managers in the civilian world.   Do's and Don'ts:   DON'T assume your recruiter is on your side. While there are several good recruiters that are trustworthy there are several which only care about their own personal quota and getting you to sign on that dotted line. DON'T take any military commitment lightly. As a soldier you are there to defend and protect Democracy, not to practice it. By this I mean that you surrender several of your civilian liberties since you will fall under a different system of judgement, The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). In several cases this means you are essentially government property. DON'T go in blind. Ask questions, do research, talk to more than one recruiter for different perspectives. It is perfectly fine for you to talk with recruiters from different branches to see what kind of offers they can get you. DON'T undersell yourself. You are an asset, you have value. Make certain you remember that as the recruiters try to entice you into joining their branch. Make sure you get everything you want.   DO read everything and ASK QUESTIONS. Always make sure you understand every single piece of information on a document before you sign it. They don't own you until you sign your name, once you do... Well... They DO own you. DO choose a military career path that suites your needs and likes. If it's a job worth doing and you're the person that is going to be doing it, make sure you like it. DO take advantage of signing bonuses, educational programs, and every other program you can get your hands on. So many veterans waste their benefits because they didn't think they had a way to use them or were too lazy to fill out a form. Talk to people, get answers and results. Those benefits are there for YOU, make use of them. DO understand that life is completely different in the military. The good times are really good, the shitty times are really shitty. Many people do not often have to think that a tiny detail they missed on a simple task means all that much in reality. However, in the military that same tiny detail can mean the difference between you being responsible for your buddy dying or living. Stress is amplified exponentially in the military.   I wish you the best of luck in your decision process. I'm happy to see you were bright enough to seek out information from others around you before jumping into a life changing commitment blindly. Whatever path you choose (or branch for that matter) if you keep a solid and cool head on your shoulders and continue to ask for more information I think you will do well in anything you do.   82nd Airborne 3/504 PIR HHC Mortar Platoon (81mm) 8/1992 - 12/1995
  12. Sim City Multiplay

    So I just downloaded and started messing around with SimCity in the solo play mode. I'd like to start up a multiplayer game. The concept is intriguing to me and it would definitely be more advantageous to play with people where we can organize and build toward common area goals. Helping each other seems to be key in this version of Sim City. If anyone is interested in started a multiplay session of SimCity instead of having just regular PUG style sessions post play times here and if you have a server you frequent that's fine too.
