    Blame devs for everything

    Naval action actually has one of the least toxic communities i have seen overall, not counting niche games that do not have any kind of toxicity whatsoever. The toxicity is mostly just the usual drama and egos. Red dragon by contrast is pretty much a diluted version of 4chan with it's nazi trolling on the main chat. And while it is certainly true that a bad community scares away a certain number of players, i cannot think of a game that has died because of it, while i can name a great many that thrive despite their toxic community. I think that in general game quality player gain and retention outweighs player loss due to toxic communities. If the toxic community player loss outweighs the player gain and retention then there might be a bigger problem than the community.

    Waiting for E3?

    Besides Cyberpunk 2077 nothing at the E3 really gets me, most of the games i am interested in are not represented there. @Hethwill mentioned a few that i am eagerly waiting for thought, such as burden of command and rule the waves 2. Hype. There is an unusual amount of tycoon games coming this year as well, maybe 20 of which i am keeping an eye on, but i don't know what they will be worth. This includes project hospital and hard ancient life in particular. And yes, bannerlord, but i don't know how much more innovative it will be compared to the first. Further down the road there is Akhenaten and life of Rome.

    I expect regular players injecting some money into it at the cost of less people buying the game when they see the DLC and new people quitting the second they realize that they have to pay extra on top of what they already paid. I for one would not have bought the game if i had seen such a DLC and i know that most of the people i know wouldn't either. Reviews will take a hit as well.

    Ship without masts, yet with flags.

    Nothing to add, except that this is indeed a gorgeous pic.

    I can't clearly see what straight razor is being used in the other video. Which one is it if i may ask? ( gotta ask the important questions )

    Happy Glorious 1st of June, captains

    Random couple pages on the convoy background since i was curious "The Convoy, the Grain, and their Influence on the French Revolution" by Laurence Evans https://www.cnrs-scrn.org/northern_mariner/vol05/tnm_5_1_45-51.pdf

    Looking for Desk Suggestions

    Buy some wood and make your own, it's easy if you just make a basic desk, for 500 bucks you can make something that would cost you several thousands in shops. Or could you spend 150 and make it look 600. If you cannot borrow the gear from a buddy or a shop, you can ask your local woodworker for a quote, obviously a bit higher priced than doing it yourself and you loose on the fun. Some rural woodworkers are dirt cheap ( usually the ones that don't even have a website ). Say something like this ( random pic ). It's really just some dirty planks to get shipped to you, clean them up ( need a tool, mask, goggles ), put some laque, fix it together, done. Google is your friend.

Maps, artworks and journals from the voyages sit alongside newly-commissioned films offering contemporary perspectives. Examine the expeditions that shaped Europe’s knowledge of the world and consider their far-reaching legacy. See Cook’s handwritten journal detailing the first crossing of the Antarctic Circle, when they travelled further south than anyone in the world, stunning artwork including the earliest European depiction of a kangaroo, and intricate maps charting the voyages that spanned more than a decade. Learn about the experiences on board the Endeavour, Resolutionand Discovery, and the impact of their arrival. Drawings by the Polynesian high priest and navigator Tupaia, who accompanied Cook to New Zealand and Australia, will be displayed together for the first time. These will sit alongside works by expedition artists Sydney Parkinson, William Hodges and John Webber. Hear the stories. Read the diaries. Revisit the momentous voyages made 250 years ago. https://www.bl.uk/events/james-cook-the-voyages?ns_campaign=enewsletter+April+2018&ns_mchannel=email&ns_source=newsletter&ns_linkname=Story2Heading&ns_fee=0
