2019-10-22 18:34:48 UTC


2019-10-22 18:34:49 UTC

but these things scare me


2019-10-22 18:35:05 UTC

Went there awhile back and saw a huge graveyard of Casspirs, Samils, Buffels and more.

2019-10-22 18:35:20 UTC

ja its sad

2019-10-22 18:46:53 UTC


2019-10-22 18:47:24 UTC

thats fucking disgusting. πŸ˜„

2019-10-22 18:47:38 UTC

its not

2019-10-22 18:47:41 UTC

its awesome

2019-10-22 18:47:53 UTC

The vehicle is awesome but what it is used for is disgusting I agree

2019-10-22 18:48:27 UTC

well yes

2019-10-22 18:48:30 UTC

What the hell do they need a Casspir for in the US?

2019-10-22 18:48:43 UTC

uhm chicago

2019-10-22 18:49:20 UTC

No, its tacky. Especially with the huge silver letters.
And those vehicles will sooner or later be beaten up to death any beyond, and suffer of the extreme price of spares, ending on a scrap-sellers porch.
Just like all the other MRAPs departments have gotten for free, ignoring the huge upkeep cost.

2019-10-22 18:49:28 UTC

I love the Casspir, but this is disgusting. πŸ˜„

2019-10-22 18:50:11 UTC

My bet is all that silver stuff on it would be removed after its first use

2019-10-22 18:50:29 UTC

Could be on there just for the "parade"?

2019-10-22 18:51:15 UTC

You can also see how flipping massive the Casspir is next to those people.

2019-10-22 18:51:46 UTC

It's difficult to get an idea of how big it in photos usually.

2019-10-22 20:34:31 UTC

Apparently they use it as a swat bus or something

2019-10-22 20:35:14 UTC

But the shit he sticked on the side looks kak

2019-10-22 20:35:24 UTC

Then that's alright. I assumed it was used as an everyday vehicle by the sherrif's department. That would be completely overkill which sorry to say... America has that reputation.

2019-10-22 20:37:38 UTC

The Casspir does look damn good in black though

2019-10-23 08:03:56 UTC

Forgive me if you all have already seen or are aware of it

2019-10-23 08:04:36 UTC

A small knysna outfit uses a buffel on the fireline. This is their new kit - the last one didn't fare so well

2019-10-23 08:04:44 UTC


2019-10-23 08:04:56 UTC


2019-10-23 08:05:04 UTC


2019-10-23 08:05:12 UTC


2019-10-23 09:52:41 UTC

Yeah they couldnt get it moving because of the weight of the water and melting tires so they had to leave it

2019-10-23 11:23:07 UTC

Are there any good pictures of the Stormjaers? Can't seem to find any on Pinterest or Google Images

2019-10-23 11:24:24 UTC

@AllezVites awesome! Never saw it before.

2019-10-23 18:21:10 UTC

Yeah - it is interesting.

2019-10-23 18:25:51 UTC

IMO the buffel was a contributing factor to the fatality. Military surplus gives you added confidence which encourages you to take risks you may otherwise not have. Similar to American Football vs. Rugby. Football players hit way harder because they think the helmet protects them, but in the end they have way more cases of brain damage.

In the above instance, these fellows went into a plantation without any backup. Probably thought the water and vehicle were enough protection. RIP to the poor fellow and I'm not saying I could have done it any better myself in the heat of the moment. Just think it's interesting.

2019-10-23 20:43:23 UTC

Ja no

2019-10-23 20:43:40 UTC

These okes didnt know proper fires then

2019-10-23 20:43:58 UTC

Going in alone against the wind is a clearcut death sentence

2019-10-25 11:45:55 UTC


2019-10-25 11:50:24 UTC

As dit neti heeltyd gebeur het nie

2019-10-25 21:27:56 UTC


2019-10-26 12:31:54 UTC

Nice! Pity it is only for boats. Would be nice to have a ground version.

2019-10-26 12:39:04 UTC

South African navy never gets any love...

2019-10-26 13:02:27 UTC

and cape town doesnt look like that lol

2019-10-27 11:32:04 UTC

Eish what a slog of a game SA vs Wales

2019-10-27 11:32:32 UTC

So many fuck ups that I really, really hope are not repeated in the final.

2019-10-27 11:49:30 UTC

Who won?

2019-10-27 11:50:56 UTC

19-16 SA - Wales

2019-10-28 12:19:11 UTC

Lets just hope they play better this weekend

2019-10-28 12:19:20 UTC

Indeed I want this cup!

2019-10-28 12:19:29 UTC

They did well though just a lot of mistakes

2019-10-28 12:20:06 UTC

Failed catches, not chasing the ball fast enough when Faf would box kick

2019-10-28 12:20:13 UTC

Other than that they did well

2019-10-28 12:21:08 UTC

I have a bet going with one of my friends cause he supports England. If we win I get his flag ect. I already won a Japanese flag so lets hope

2019-10-28 12:21:18 UTC

If you lose?

2019-10-28 12:21:22 UTC

What does he get?

2019-10-28 12:21:33 UTC

I lose my flag then

2019-10-28 12:21:44 UTC

Eish better hope we win then πŸ˜‰

2019-10-28 12:22:30 UTC

Yes lol. They should leave the kicks or just kick when they are in shit and have no way out then we'll be set

2019-10-28 12:22:40 UTC

https://i.redd.it/i0cgusyib8v31.png when you take your kids to the game.

2019-10-28 12:23:10 UTC

Lol true

2019-10-28 12:23:36 UTC

But the faf and Beard love photo is better

2019-10-28 12:23:38 UTC


2019-10-28 12:23:46 UTC

Well it was Rassie's plan for the kicks. It could work really well provided the guys up front chase the ball down fast enough. That wasn't happening which is why it backfired at times.

2019-10-28 12:23:55 UTC

Ja that ones a classic

2019-10-28 12:24:15 UTC

Smallest springbok takes on the biggest dragon or should I say sheep?

2019-10-28 12:25:17 UTC

Lol yea id love to see faf drilling that guy into the ground but sadly it didn't happen

2019-10-28 12:26:37 UTC

robbing them of their first WC final should do πŸ˜‰

2019-10-28 12:27:31 UTC

Yea lol fine by me lol. Im just glad we playing England and not the all blacks

2019-10-28 12:29:10 UTC

But yea I really have high hopes. More hopes than this mitric exam lol

2019-10-28 12:48:26 UTC

Ja same here. But it's not going to be easy I reckon. Boks need all the support they can get. Whether they bring that cup home or not I'll be happy anyway. They've made it to the final while every other team did not πŸ˜‰ they made history already.

2019-10-29 00:04:06 UTC

Just letting the guys who play war thunder know that update 1.93 is dropping today at 09:00 GMT

2019-11-01 12:25:10 UTC

Hi guys just a personal update. My mother passed away this morning. So won't be in the mood to do much for awhile.

2019-11-01 12:25:58 UTC

Ah sorry to hear about the loss goodluck to you and the family

2019-11-01 13:14:17 UTC

2019-11-01 20:31:26 UTC

2019-11-01 21:19:48 UTC

2019-11-02 11:44:10 UTC

@Springbok Condolences

2019-11-06 18:20:21 UTC

2019-11-06 19:09:28 UTC

2019-11-16 18:58:46 UTC

just watched the hurt locker and i never ealised there was a ratel 20 in the beginning of the movie

2019-11-16 18:59:11 UTC

timestamp is aprox. 00.01.46 minutes in

2019-11-16 20:14:24 UTC

Yup there is a website much like IMDB that lists what vehicles are in what films. Ratel is in a couple others as well but can't remember any names.

2019-11-18 23:55:23 UTC

With permission:
Guys, if you're interested have a look at my first game on steam. Wishlist if you can.

2019-11-18 23:57:55 UTC

Wasn't that guy on the left white before?

2019-11-18 23:58:07 UTC

Or am I crazy?

2019-11-19 00:00:03 UTC

In-game the images are random. One of 8. Some are white, some not, some are male, some not.

2019-11-19 00:04:56 UTC

Ah interesting

2019-11-19 08:07:54 UTC

Which game engine did you use

2019-11-19 08:22:30 UTC


2019-11-19 08:23:46 UTC

What made you choose Unity over UE4

2019-11-19 08:30:55 UTC

I have 20 years of C# experience and hate C++ with a passion. UE4 visual scripting is only usable for prototyping or small games

2019-11-19 08:31:50 UTC

No you can actually create a entire game with just Blueprints in UE4. But okay i can understand why you chosen Unity

2019-11-19 08:33:06 UTC

The performance sucks once your game gets to a certain size. I tried UE4 for about a year and a half before I switched

2019-11-19 08:33:17 UTC

*Blue prints

2019-11-19 08:35:04 UTC

But UE4 has gotten very good at optimizing it self when you use Blueprints but it is also up to your self how you do your blueprints to keep your game optimized

2019-11-19 08:35:23 UTC


2019-11-19 13:27:33 UTC

Why does it require 8gigs of ram when it looks like a game you can play on mobile ?

2019-11-19 13:44:19 UTC

@Bartender To be honest I don’t know what the min requirements are. I had to take a stab in the dark.

2019-11-19 13:59:05 UTC


2019-11-19 14:00:19 UTC

I dont know if unity has something similar but UE4 has a build in profiler that you can see how mutch your game uses etc

2019-11-19 14:23:14 UTC

I’ll have a look thanks.

2019-11-19 14:40:04 UTC

Sounds like Unity does have one

2019-11-19 14:41:08 UTC

In that link if you scroll down they talk about the Unity Profiler

2019-11-19 19:16:48 UTC

Got it. Thank you

2019-11-25 13:53:20 UTC

@Bartender I have updated the system requirements. Thanks for the input.

2019-11-25 14:17:46 UTC

no prob mate
