Sadly Dying Light does not do multi-threading very well which results in low framerates. For a modern game that is to be played on consoles with 8 cores or PCs that also have multiple cores, to not take advantage of proper multi-threading is pretty mind boggling. Really it just comes down to laziness, something that is not new to Techland and their poorly optimized ports. See More

Jim BI have been prepping for a few years now. The first thing I think sooemne should do as far as food is pack away rice and beans. These combine for a complete protein which is essential for prepping. I have rice and beans packed into mylar bags and 5 gal buckets with O2 absorbers. They last 25-30 years on the shelf.(see Brigham Young’s research into shelf lives of dried food) It is very easy and not too expensive to pack away months worth of rice and beans that you will not have to rotate. Pasta, oats, sugar, can also be packed this way and last up to 30 years. Most serious preppers with families have hundreds of pounds of ric e and beans packed away in buckets. Rice and beans should be a staple of every food preppers plan. Healthy, incredibly long shelf life, filling, cheap.A great idea for emergency rice is to cook your rice. Then put it into a food dehydrator, dehydrate it completely. Then pack away in a mylar bag. When needed you open it up and it does not need to be cooked, only rehydrated. You can pour cold water on it if you need to and let it soak. That way of you are unable to get water boiling for whatever reason, you could still have some rice to eat. Or if you are trying to conserve fuel, just get the water a little warm and pour it on the dehydrated rice. Much less fuel use then boiling the rice. Mountain House sells this in #10 cans but it is cheaper to make your self.You can also dehydrate frozen vegies and pack them away in vacuum seal bags with o2 absorbers and they will last 8-10 years. I can give you links to good web sites if you need to learn how to do anyu of this.

I’d love to know what all that crap weighs you really don’t need half of it… dump all the water purification crap and boil water. You don’t need a bowl because you have a canteen cup to heat over a fire. Forget the MRE’s it’s heavier than freeze dried. Bring one large solid tang knife you can hit and dump the rest you don’t need saws and hatchets. Bring a .22 some ammo. Dump all that electronic crap & batterys. Forget the carabiners you can’t carry all that crap anyway, face paint, walking sticks, you name it. Take only what you need, bring a bic and learn how to make a fire bow with some 550 cord
Crafting in Conan Exiles is essentially the name of the game. There are hundreds of items available to craft, and even though it may seem a little daunting at first, the process is very intuitive. You're able to do most things right from your inventory screen with no added help, and other things are deliberately pointed out as needing other amenities to be able to craft them. As you level up, you acquire "knowledge points," allowing you to learn how to craft new things. However, one person can't possibly know how to craft everything in the game. This system is perfect for making players either raid others for the goods they need, or team up and work with people to get further in their quest for survival. See More

If SHTF or you have a house fire or whatever, your family members may need to reach someone. Does everyone in your family have the phone numbers, full names, addresses and directions to the home and office of all your other family members and people you trust? Do you have all the police, fire and hospital numbers and addresses listed? Make a very thorough list and make sure everyone has a copy of it. This list should go into your overall emergency plan.

Some advice please; I am a single male 45 years old living on a fixed income because of brain cancer surgery and subsequent treatment left me with seizures. My 3 children are grown now and am serious about prepping for any disaster, especially since I live in tornado ally. So far the only thing I have done is to stock 6 months worth of my Rx medicine which I do rotate monthly so they don’t expire. After reviewing my budget I have around $150 of disposable income a month. How would I begin? Does anyone have any advice? Thanks.
I just bought property and I built a home far from any city (its actually on its own Island in Alaska) I have my own river for fresh water, a greenhouse and gardens as well as renewable power (windmills, dam, and solar panels). plus being as I live in Alaska I have plenty of guns and ammo for hunting. I own a fishing boat as well so food will be abundant as long as I can use it. I am completely self sufficient out here. BUT, I need to known if there is a list of things that I should have. The food is stocked for two years or more, but I want livestock ideas as well as ideas of medical supplies ect. Please let me know if there is any such list.
The one that kicked it all off. This shuffling undead treat remains one of the best zombie games and survival games. In other words, it’s the king of zombie survival games. By today’s standards, DayZ could even be considered one of the leanest virtual survivors, with barely any crafting to speak of, and no objectives beyond staying alive. Food and water are vitally important, and getting sick can quickly kill you should you fail to pay attention to your symptoms. Walking without shoes cuts and infects your feet, and blood transfusions of the wrong type will see you slip away for good.
Not every damn thing needs multiplayer, and multiplayer can often ruin an otherwise incredible experience. There's none to be found here, and that intensifies the lonely atmosphere. Also, the creators didn't waste resources on something that would fundamentally undermine the experience so they could focus on making the game the wonderful thing that it is. See More
