    Kingdom Come: Deliverance / Open-World RPG / Medieval History

    From my time with the beta I would say it has some of the best depiction of woodlands I've seen, especially when the weather changes and the ground runs with water, forming puddles, it really is amazingly atmospheric and realistic. The second shot clearly has some PP editing, but it does not...

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance / Open-World RPG / Medieval History

    Thanks. Will have to wait and see if us backers get it in time for release here in the UK. I found the alpha/beta was a bit sluggish on my 2500k & GTX670 2GB unsurprisingly, but hopefully now having a GTX1060 6GB will make it playable at mid to high settings @1080p. With no broadband since...

    Kingdom Come: Deliverance / Open-World RPG / Medieval History

    Are you in the UK? I've not received any contact about dispatch from Warhorse. Did your profile change, or did you get any info or message prior to getting your package? I hear the console versions needs a 25GB patch to make it a finished product :eek: I wonder if the PC version went to...

    Post Your Garden!

    Thank you... I must admit when we started the moving process I did not imagine we'd get something with so much outside space. I even joked to my wife that I had to have a garden big enough for a ride-on mower, so she bought me a Hotwheels toy and said that would be the only one I'd ever get... I...

    Post Your Garden!

    So, we have a fairly clean slate with the house we moved into at the end of last year... The property has a fairly traditional front and back garden, with the front mostly laid to lawn, along with the parking leading a large barn outbuilding and garage, with the back being a mixture of patio...

    ***Han Solo movie***

    Quite... its a combination of the look and the personality, and this is something Star Trek pretty much nailed. In Solo it seems both these aspects have been missed :(

    ***Han Solo movie***

    Looks okay I guess, but why when the Star Trek re-boot managed to capture the essence of many of the original characters in their younger years, does this seem to fall miserably short with Han?... it is just not him at all :/

    The nervous wait to exchange....

    That's quite a change, and something only time will get your head around... sounds great though and a dream indeed!... We went from a 1970's bungalow, with a little patch of garden surrounded by other houses (lovely views though, as it was on a steep hill) to a Victorian cottage with an acre of...

    The nervous wait to exchange....

    Our last house was like that, it felt like being on holiday, staying in someone else's house and it didn't go away for ages... We have been in our new place now for two months and its been the complete opposite; from the moment we crossed the threshold we were home, like we had always lived...

    The nervous wait to exchange....

    Ha-ha... I said the same thing to my wife two days ago. We have wanted to move to Cornwall, and would have done so this time if the right property had come-up (it's even deader there than in Devon) so, we have put it off... but, after this I never want to go through the trauma again :(...

    The nervous wait to exchange....

    If they did then good! and I don't give a flying fig... We were with our previous agents for 16 weeks, which was the contract period [and they were rubbish]. We then moved to a new agent, who did a completely different set of details (photos etc.) and pitch/marketing for the property. If that's...

    The nervous wait to exchange....

    What a shame... some people are just idiots. They lost what seems like the ideal buyer to me: in rented, so no downward chain, mortgage in place, not putting on the pressure for them to get out. If they change their mind in the future they might no be so lucky next time; the sad thing is, its...

    The nervous wait to exchange....

    Go with whatever makes you comfortable and confident about the property. I would never advise someone not to have a survey, even though that is basically what we did in official terms, however, a lot of it is common sense and when you've had a few properties, and been around the block a bit...

    The nervous wait to exchange....

    Basically... With the house we are buying I got my brother-in-law, who is a builder, to look at the property, which cost us nothing (well, a few beers sometime ;) ) and I trust his skills to spot things as much as anyone. I did get a quote for a level two (I think it was) which was around £500...

    The nervous wait to exchange....

    I'm pretty sure our agent, who is one of the biggest in the country, did not break the law :rolleyes: ... and we did not drop the price :p Utterly professional and SOLD! which is all that matters to me.

    The nervous wait to exchange....

    It took us nearly five months to sell ours... We changed agents when the contract period was up with the first ones we went with, and the new ones sold it in two weeks. They were without doubt more far proactive and also the change gets it re-listed on Rightmove etc. so it gets seen again being...

    The Detectorists

    Anyone else watch it last night?... I'm not sure if its up to the standard of the previous series (it certainly doesn't mess with the formula) but its remains a delight, and I look forward to next weeks episode.

    Fall Update has started to roll out.

    Did mine yesterday via Windows Update, which took well over an hour. No problems on my rather old desktop, apart from a small issue with my monitor profile, which would change every time I went from windowed to full screen in Prepar3Dv4.1 [flight simulator] making everything very dark and...

    What book are you reading...

    Pond by Claire-Louise Bennet... This (below) is the Amazon 'blurb' which sums it up perfectly.... I have nearly finished and absolutely love it! Feverish and forthright, Pond is an absorbing chronicle of the pitfalls and pleasures of a solitudinous life told by an unnamed woman living on the...
