Basically, that z-shaped piece is worse than the goddamned square piece.
You have to bite the bullet and turn it.  You can complete a line (almost) by placing those z pieces horizontally, so eventually it will give you something else.

Do you have a lot of units in a large map, particularly AI units that spawn a long distance from the player?  Pathfinding will forever be the resource hog of video game AI.

Yes, but it was not the cause. The cause was the AI having a goal of avoiding a giant area with many villages. The AI was torn between taking the villages and avoiding them.

I fixed it by removing the goal and setting village_value to 0. Now they avoid the area and take only about 2 s per unit, rather than 2 min.

I attempted to colonize the dark island like the good Zorya worshipper I am.  Unfortunately I was attacked by... something I wouldn't have expected to find on the dark island... and then discovered I would have to battle it in spirit challenges.  This didn't seem so bad... until it spammed out 3 of a card that would hit ALL enemies whenever it attacked.  No one directly died from the encounter but we were wounded and night was falling.

In the end we managed to fight our way through bear people and the... things... to get to the valuable reserves of dragon bone and make a powerful idol for our village that would allow us to harvest pretty much anything in the area.  The casualties: our god's chosen (a goblin changeling) lost her goblin-son-turned-forest-demon, an experienced harvester died, and one of our founding members (a scavenger that was really more of a witch) died.  Incidentally, two of those characters were our best bet at spirit challenges.

The coming turns will either go really well for me or really poorly... if I can get more characters I have access to some amazing resources (dragon bone, quartz, elven wood, furs, all in the same place, plus lots of food).  If I can't, well, let's hope I can kit out the current ones to fight well...

I downed a Mercenary ship and went to raid it, forgetting that mercs use gauss weapons and have Gauss hovertanks, which happen to have type 2 shields. Thanks to reloading no gal died, but there are plenty wounded.

I keep getting owned by Gunners, super mutants and legendary ghouls, so I need to join the Brotherhood and get their sweet, sweet fusion cores. To this end I rescue Danse and follow him to ArcJet, with Preston in tow.

Preston disappears as soon as we enter ArcJet and Danse won't stop aiming at the ceiling. Then I get the objective "Heal your companion." Somehow, in the split seconds between loading in and gaining control, Preston had aggro'd a turret on the second floor, gotten up there, and got KO'd. Sometime between ending my last playthrough and starting this one, followers became stupid. Like REALLY stupid, even by the standards of Bethesda companions.

And I can't reload because this is Survival and it would mean going all the way back to the police station, where I last slept.

Welp, another rip at lvl 68. Got murderized by an aetherial elite on my way to necropolis. Not sure what exactly happened but I think the fucker stunlocked me right after I used a potion so I couldn't run and since potions have fairly long cooldowns he kinda burned trough my 11k hp without much trouble. Damn shame too, the build was so damn good at this point :V

Tetris.

Edit to add: In X-Piratez, I investigated a landed small UFO. I am not smart enough to check out an enemy beforehand (and middle-click is asinine), so I shot a dark grey humanoid thing in the back with my small revolver (it's TU-efficient and accurate, for a weapon with buy-able ammo). Then, after being one-shot with his plasma rifle, I noticed his 2 flying robot friends and one of the 4-square floating enemies from X-com. And 2 other Osiron Security. It's worse than landing and getting mobbed by zombies.

A Merc vs Merc mission.  My lance of medium mechs vs a group of 3 heavies.  2 Riflemen and an Orion.

I really want a rifleman.

My chameleon equipped to essentially be a bigger firestarter is running around keeping the big mechs overheated.  'Those are some nice big guns you have, shame you can only fire a couple of them a turn'.  My MC's Shadowhawk is trying to snipe out heads while my wolverine is alpha striking backs to try and just reduce their numbers to a more manageable level.

My LRM Trebuchet manages to get lucky and cores the orion, and Chameleon manages to burn one of the riflemen so hard all it's ammo explodes taking it out.  Just one rifleman left, it's still high heat so it can't fight effectively and it's pretty beat up but still has all it's parts.  Next turn it takes a few potshots at my MC, destroying her AC/10.  Probably not gunna take out a head anymore so the entire lance goes for the legs, and My wolverine manages to take out both legs in a single* volley.  Great success!

But why is this in the death thread you ask?  Did I mess up and post in the wrong thread like I did yesterday?  Nope.

Salvage screen comes up.  Salvage is super lucky, 3/3 parts to reconstruct my very own rifleman and even 1/3 of the orion parts for good measure.

Then the game crashes before getting back to the Argo.  RIP.

Game crashes, killing players every game every time.


Running through the Battle Arena, should have enough BP to get W-Summon right after this win. End up rolling No Items early on as well as 1/2 HP, last round gives me Break All Materia, and sets me against Serpent. Normally, Serpent only uses an attack called Viper Breath, which hits for around 500HP(Cloud has about 1800HP at this point). I figure I can match it blow for blow. Then the asshole uses Aqualung, and hits for about ~2000HP.

Another attempt, I've got Break All Materia, No Items, and Weapon Broken, and I'm faced with Ghost Ship in the final round. The problem is Ghost Ship has an attack called Gonnai, which is unblockable and removes the target from battle - in the Battle Arena, this is an instant loss.

I wrestled with forbidden knowledge and formidable foes over the course of perhaps 20 hours, and eventually ascended to walk behind the watchman - winning immortality and a minor victory of sorts.

I started over, as my apostle, to attempt to climb higher still. I used my health to work for coin, but got sick right at the start while my health was still fatigued from the work and suffered a hugely anti-climatic death less than 2 minutes into the game.

RIP Toast2, apostle entheate.

Cultist simulator. Not the game I was expecting at all (not really sure exactly what I did expect) but I'm loving it.

I used all my clot charms and about a dozen bandages trying to fight some skeleton workers in the mausoleum.

Then the game crashed anyway.

For a game with an annoying plot half of the game, was ugly looking even when it came out, and has some terrible mechanics like that, FF7 is still fun to play sometimes.


We recently started Arkham Horror LCG Forgotten Age for the 3rd time. We're having to go with standard difficulty because the guy who made 2/4 characters likes specialization, and doesn't understand why "kills things good" isn't as important as "can also gain clues so we don't run out of time and lose *again*". Luckily, I have Finn who is getting decent at clue gathering now that I've got some xp, and is good at evading.
