Attention-Anyone Here With A Massive-RAM Equipped Computer?

Postby Colette » Fri May 04, 2012 4:00 pm

Hi guys,

As you know, there has been a super-dreadnought race in the brikverse. While LDD promises infinite bricks in theory, in practice there are limits to what my 4GB MacBook Air can handle. Therefore, I want willing volunteers to post the RAM of their computers and I will get around to pm'ing the best candidate about organizing more epic micro space battles in the future.

The problem is less likely too little RAM and more likely too little processing power. Laptops are shit in that department.

Well, I think everyone gets the point.

I think Alienware would be really good though.

Eww. Who buys pre-built computers? Building one is much more cost effective, not to mention more power than a Mac can ever provide.

OK guys, stop trolling and just answer the question, unless you don't want moar epic microspace battles.

You could try using a friggin desktop.

If someone wants to do microspace battles, that's up to them to want to, and not for all of us to post our shit and have you sort through the data and PM the best candidate for your hobby. If someone here has an awesome computer and also the awesome desire to host said battles, then yes, they should speak up and help you out.

The best candidate for hosting a battle is the person who actually wants to host the battle, not whoever happens to have the best comp.

Well, my desktop is absolute trash with .5 gigabytes of RAM-it'll crap out at around 10 bricks.

Anyway, if one wants to actually use these giant dreadnoughts we're building, well, somebody else needs to step in, I can only handle 2 with barely any other smaller escort ships. I mean, if we can't even use the uber-dreadnoughts, why even bother with them?

Already we have quite a few, my own Athenia-class, then Praetoria's Exodus, the Briktoid Conifer, then the Scythian Deity, then my own (again) giant OTC-ship, then the MASS dreadnought, the STOC's Mastodon, and apparently an RIN one is in the works as is a USA one.

I thought the point of microspace was to let you have epic space battles without needing to build giant ships?

Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

It was, until we all started making Epic Scale Ships...

The problem is that as long as there's the power we'll keep building bigger ships. I'm betting other people are at the point of having to set process priorities just to keep the lag under 30 seconds. Cool idea, lets go raid a supercomputer from the US military (They have that shit in Cheyenne mountain playing naughts and crosses right?) build a huge ass LDD dreadnought, then hook up a 3D printer, problem solved.

Wait, what happens if we build a microspace dreadnought bigger then an actual naval dreadnought?

I'm pretty sure that crosses the line between Microspace and Macrospace.

You could always just use a different scale :rtfm:

The fuck is naughts and crosses? Is it like Tic-tac-toe?
