    I'm not supposed to talk about it but with the release imminent I'll mention a couple of things. There are occasional very brief pauses. Just enough to kill the immersion. And the trees don't necessarily match the area.

    iirc, the trees are generated by AI and are supposed to automatically improve over time as the satellite mapping resolution increases and tree detection part of the algorithm learns more

    Tesloop is now shuttered indefinitely.


    Also:

    "Along the way to 400,000 miles, the Model S has also had its high-voltage battery replaced twice under warranty, at 194,000 miles (312,212 km) and 324,000 miles (521,427 km). On the first battery, Tesloop experienced 6% battery degradation. Curiously, though, it experienced 22% degradation on the second battery. "


    Current Model S battery warranty is 150,000 miles, so for everybody not a Tesla subsidized 1 way rental company, that's two out of warranty failures. Ouch.

    Oh yeah if you get an S with software add-ons, make sure you have a good Reddit account. If Tesla decides to disable them on you and solicit you to purchase them again. They've already begun disabling free supercharging on used Model S cars, and pulled their launch mode from others which is the most fun thing in the entire car. $10,000 just for a temporary throttle re-mapping. You'll have to go online and make a virtual scene in Tesla groups to get it undone.

    I can see the concept, but I agree it's a pipe dream.


    Depreciation is horrid on all vehicles, a new vehicle is one of the worst investments anyone can make. Now the Tesla's are the only car in the US if not the world that are "designed" to last 1 million miles. Time will tell if that holds true.


    It's not just a pipe dream. It's knowingly pumping up something that can't happen to investors to fund raise. Expectations for Level 5 FSD have been rolled back a decade. Tesla refuses to use LIDAR, and that adds another $30k or so to the vehicles and makes them ugly.


    On the million miles. There's a monstrous * on that. A Model 3 battery warranty ends at 120,000 miles. It's the single most expensive item in the entire vehicle. It's a massive brick of Panasonic 18650 lipo battery cells. Out of warranty it's at least $15k + labor. They hope they'll only cost $7k one day.

    It's just crazy shit that comes out of Musk that makes me pause. Alien Dreadnaught, appreciating robot-taxis, battery swap scam, boring company fraud, solar city fraud. I can't wait for the next thing but he seems to have slowed down finally.


    but since you yourself are looking at good prices on Model S, it means they have depreciated. The only time they didn't depreciate like hell was when the used market was so small Tesla had almost all of them and could price them as they pleased. The Model 3 undid that. They hold value better than a POS like a Jag XJ, but nowadays can hit 37% to a gas car's average 25% depreciation in year 1. At least you're looking at an S. Better quality. The 3 keeps leaking in car washes from defecting seals, defective lamp housings fogging, paint still failing import inspections, etc.

    $250,000? What the fuck are you smoking?

    Smokin' that Musk. The pump & dumps do make you feel like you're on drugs.


    "I feel very confident predicting 1 million autonomous robo-taxis for Tesla next year," Musk told a room of investors and Wall Street analysts at the company's Palo Alto, California, headquarters.

    Tesla estimates the cost of running a robo-taxi on the "Tesla Network," onto which the company says all Tesla owners will be able to add their cars, to be less than $0.18 a mile. Tesla went on to predict that a sample fare of $1 a mile would translate to $30,000 in annual profit for a single car. That would add up to $30 billion for the 1 million cars Musk predicted would soon be running.

    but as far as saving gas and the convenience of supercharging. You should never supercharge, it murders your battery. You should never charge to 100%, 90% only, and never drop under 20% or you damage the 18650 cells.


    Plus, who is driving anywhere that's not a trucker? There's no traffic in Houston anymore. I'm getting gas maybe once a month. You don't buy Teslas to save money, you'd just buy a cheaper car.

    Ahh, the $250,000 appreciating Robo-Taxi that can't identify stopped fire trucks in the road and has killed 5 negligent drivers. Just drive it manually and sell it before the warranty is out.

    This game is a bit ridiculous, kinda hard (old school video game hard at times), still early access, but worth every penny of the $9.99.


    TLDR: You're a leaderish kind of person. Ancient warfare cartoon theme. Get troops, form shield wall, throw javelins, charge, beat the shit out of other teams arcade fun style.

    Contrary to majority random battle opinion, I do like the subs lol. It's fun. It's a much better implementation than they did in NavyField. Once you get that double ping you can break a BB's back in 1 volley.

    They have started with subs now but in separate battles, they'll be in random battles soon though, between subs and CVs the destroyer game is going to be in for a big change. Can you say permaspotted.

    I needs a change. Whatever DD has the highest concealment from the +10% captain buff is the dictator of matches right now.

    I got bored and got tier 7 ijn dd torp line, dd gun line, tier 7 bb , tier 7 cruiser, tier whatever cv hosho is, some german premium heavy cruiser. Been playing with my brother in law a bit.
