2023.05.29 23:40 redditsucksfuckmods Opinions on a low-mileage '01 2500 gas for use w/ truck camper?

I'm looking to move from a small Chevy van to a larger pickup truck for the purposes of carrying a camper shell. I haven't shopped a camper yet, but I'm flexible and that's a separate question all together. I've found a good deal on a 2001 Ram 2500 (gas) with an eight-foot bed, with under 60k original miles, but I am no kinda truck guy so I'm wondering if anyone here has experience with these 2nd-gen Ram trucks and the specific needs of carrying a loaded down camper shell with one or two people.
I've looked through the history here, and it seems like most of the campers in conversation are the towed variety, and the trucks seem to be more contemporary. Elsewhere, lots of people on their various forums seem to have unkind things to say about the era of Dodge trucks; in particular the transmission and suspension, which would obviously be two of the most taxed components on such a vehicle. I'm comfortable enough with upgrading the suspension, but obviously a "good deal" on a vehicle can go quickly out the window as soon as a new transmission is involved.
So does anyone here have experience with a 2nd gen Ram and camper shells they can share? Thanks in advance!

2023.05.29 23:12 wonowoo 2nd Build in Ncase M1 v4

Background: So I'm not new to building sff computers but the last time I did was in 2015 with my ncase m1, i7-6700k, asus z170i, reference gtx970, corsair 32gb ddr4-2666, samsung 850 evo. Prior to that was in 2011 with a sg-07, i5-2500, zotac H67, gigabyte hd6870, g.skill 8gb ddr3-1333, corsair force 3. As these builds show, the 2015 was relatively high end at the time but not the highest, and the 2011 build was rather budget conscious. Realistically, the 2015 build was overkill, I never ended up OC at all and I personally rarely play any intense games (at most some league from time to time).
So with that out of the way, the build I am aiming for in 2023 is something more budget minded with the purpose of doing sim racing and maybe some VR games. I don't have either of these systems yet but I already have a 3090 and I want to reuse the m1.
The Build:
For the 3090 I'm planning to deshroud, repad, and devolt, and use fans on the cooler as exhaust. I will add 2 fans on the side panel as intake to blow cool air on to the motherboard and into the case with a cpu cooler with fans facing the rear as an exhaust. I don't plan to watercool (even though I bought the frozenq reservoir when I got the m1, again buying things I don't use/need). Most of the parts selection is chosen because it is on the compatibility list for that board on asus website.
Main Questions:
  1. Any reason I should choose an AMD system instead? Something like the 7600x? Or should I pay a bit extra for 13600KF, although I won't OC? Or 12th gen?
  2. Stock cpu cooler good enough? Any other cooling solutions I need to consider for the case?
  3. DDR4 vs DDR5? Is the corsair set a good one?
  4. SF600 enough? According to pcpartpicker it should be.
  5. Any bettemore value motherboard to consider?
  6. I'm not in a rush to build, should I wait for 14th gen?
Hopefully once this build is all said and done I can run some benchmarks for the community, I love SFF and all the information I have gathered from this sub and other sites in the last week to put this build together. TIA

2023.05.29 23:02 ASassyTitan Do you have different tires/wheels for off/on road, or do you just run one set?

Right now I have 35" Nitto Grapplers on OEM 20" steel wheels. Planning on getting 37" Toyos on 17" Method beadgrips.
I'm debating on if it'd be worth slapping some street tires on on the OEM wheels and keeping them for the off season? Or is that just a PITA and not worth whatever I'd save in MPG/tread life
If it matters, its a 4th gen Ram 2500 Cummins with a 2.5" Carli King lift

2023.05.29 22:53 Methodicallydoubting Battery Life on i7 2018 Macbook Pros

I am currently looking for a used / refurbished 2018 Macbook Pro (15.4", i7 8850H, Radeon Pro 560X, 16GB RAM) and I am curious about the battery life on this exact model. How does it hold up in 2023 compared to similarly priced Windows 11 Notebooks? Is it better? Worse?
Currently I am using a HUAWAI Matebook 14 (Ryzen 5 5500U, 16GB RAM, Win11) and even though I am really happy with the machine, I've always wanted to make the switch to MacOS. I can live with the slightly slower CPU (I only work with Microsoft Office and browse the web), however I cannot life with a terrbile battery life because most of the time I work with the Notebook I am unable to keep it plugged in.
The 2018 Pro with the exact same specs that I mentioned will set me back around 820 EUR refurbished from a third party seller, the Macbook Air M1 will cost me around 950 EUR as an Apple Official Refurbished Computer.
I'm sorry if the question seems dumb or unnecessary but I just couldn't find an answer that fulfills my needs.
Thanks in advance!

2023.05.29 22:43 alexm501 Grille guards?

I've thought about adding some sort of grille guard to my car, anyone know if it's something that could be done (without voiding any warranties or irreversible changes)? I know it wouldn't be as easy as say a Jeep.
Opinions against this idea are welcome, but I'm adding stuff to the car for a more off road ruggedized experience, although not as much as other cars I've had.
Thanks in advance!

2023.05.29 22:37 GenericBondVillain49 Upgrading old PC, what parts should I replace and what should I keep?

I bought my current PC back in 2018, pre-built from Cyberpower because it the cheapest option at the time, and I'm not the most knowledgeable about how to pick hardware. Now I'm no longer a student, so I've been thinking about upgrading my setup, and finally switching over to 1440p. I feel like my components are all pretty dated at this point, but they all still run well, so I'm not sure which ones I should prioritize replacing.
The important pieces of hardware at the moment:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-AX370M-DS3H
CPU: Ryzen 3 2200G
RAM: 2x8G ADATA AX4U240038G16-BWZ
GPU: GTX 1050ti (definitely want to upgrade)
PSU: I'm honestly not sure. The case covers almost the whole thing, and there are no stickers or logos visible. I'll have to drill out all the rivets to figure it out, but I'm pretty sure I'll have to replace this regardless so I actually know what the wattage is.
I've read a lot on this sub recently, but I'm an idiot, so I'm looking for recommendations from people with more experience. I know I want to upgrade the GPU, and there are quite a few used units available on the local market, so I should be able to get a used 3060ti for less than $300.
Should I keep any of these parts? If so which ones? Should I just gut the whole thing and get new hardware? Any suggestions are welcome.

2023.05.29 21:50 jpitha Just A Little Further 15/40

First / Previous / Next
I was furious.
The Aviens and Mariens in charge here thought they could control us with the gift of a false translator. They watched our arrival with glee probably. Our power is self evident and were relying on naïveté in order to control us.
As I strode along towards the administration building, Ava, Fer'resi and Mei'la struggled to keep up; I was walking with purpose. "Melody!" Ava called out. "If you slow down, we can walk with you and it will look more like a precession than some retainers struggling to keep up!"
I stopped. She had a point. I dressed like this and applied my mantle in order to impress. Empresses never rushed. Everything waited for them. We took a moment to get our bearings and look around.
Maybe I shouldn't have stopped.
Everyone was watching us, staring. They weren't running, but shops put shutters down, and were bringing chairs and tables closer to exits. Nobody left but people were making sure they were behind something sturdy while still having a view of the promenade.
Interestingly, the children were not frightened. I saw a small school of kids - all different types - who were peering owlishly through an open door. I met their eyes and spread my wings just a tiny bit and ruffled them. They all laughed and cheered. I don't expect them to know who I am or what I am doing, but when a women dressed in a beautiful outfit and a crown and wings made of light waves to you, it's a great day when you're 4.
We start walking again, this time at a slightly more sedate pace. While I walk, I'm trying out things. I'm trying to grill my Nanites for information. Does this starbase have an AI?
No, Builders tended to run their own Starbases. They had no need for AI.
While we're walking, I turn back. "What do you think everyone?"
Ava's head is on a swivel, with wide eyes and a big grin. "This is amazing Melody, it's so much... more than any Starbases back home. I wonder if they have shopping?" She gasps. "How do they do money? I wonder if they still have currency or is it all digital? I can't wait to see.
"Mei'la looks thoughtful. "They sure are wasteful with power here. I wonder if they just have that much of a surplus or if we could bring some efficiencies in and help people.
"Fer'resi just looks worried. "I understand why you brought me Em-er, Melody, but I must admit I am not looking forward to this confrontation."
I scoff gently. "Confrontation? We're just going to go to the administrative offices, explain that we are willing to look at what happened as a mistake and ask for a proper translator. I'm sure it'll be fine." When I say it out loud, I realize that it probably won't go that way. But, I don't want to worry him.
That is worrying him more.
It'll be fine.
As we rounded the final corner to the administrative building, I saw it. There were barricades set up around the building, and a mix of Mariens and Aviens were standing guard every meter or so, facing out, weapons free, but not being pointed at anyone.
Uh oh.
When we got about 3 meters away, the closest one called out. "Halt! The Administrative offices are closed by order of the Regents. You must come another day."
I put my hands on my hips and looked at them. I spread my golden wings just a bit to look larger. The Aviens who spoke the order looked at me, very nervous."Thank you citizen." I say kindly. "I appreciate your loyalty to your supervisor, it is to be commended. Now that you have completed your task, step aside and allow us to pass. No harm will come of you - you followed your orders to tell us to leave. We will not harm you." I gesture back to my team. "As you can see, we are unarmed."
He laughed weakly. "No Builder is truly unarmed."
I nod, when you have a voice that people can be compelled to obey, he's right. I sigh. He's going to make me say it isn't he?
He wants to experience it as much as he wants to be able to say he tried to resist when his supervisor reprimands him.
Ugh, Fine.
S̴̢͖̪͍̟̟̼͓͉̫͎̯̈́́̌̄̚ͅț̴̨̧̛̠̝̙̬̪̖̽́͐̎̾̊̒̒̋͐̀͘̕͜͜͝ͅe̸̹͐̈́̈́̈̑̉͗͘͠p̶̣͓̂̏͐̉̍̎̄̆̚͝ ̷̨̡̱̦̫̘͎̘̙̭̘̟̮̣̲̣̹͛͒͋̉̔̔͝Ā̴̧̡̝̰̦̫̱̬͍̞̘̞͓̝̲̣͒̋̀͌̎̐̊̈́̍͝ş̷̧̤͈̲̺̮̬̩̜̣̗̯̹́͊́͛ͅị̵̒̂̚ḓ̶͙̳̏͌̉ḙ̵̛̩͇̰̰̺̹̥̺̥̠̲̜̀̈́̐͊̉́͂̋͌͂̅͐̕ͅ.̸̢̛̬̫̙̺̟̟̜̪̯̹͚̯̼̔̀̊̑̄̿̓̔̎̚͜͜͜͝͠
I say it as gently as I can. As one, every Aviens and Mariens moves two steps away from the barricade. The one who spoke to me shudders and sighs happily.
"Ew" I say out loud.
"What is it? Ava asks, looking towards me.
"That one-" I point to the Aviens I've been talking to "-liked it when I ordered him around."
"I mean, I get it." Ava said, blushing.
I looked back at her and raised an eyebrow. She blushed harder. "I'm just saying that lots of people really like it when a powerful, beautiful woman orders them around, they don't even have to have the Voice that compels people for them to like it."
"Like, a sex thing?" I ask, confused.
"It can be, but it doesn't have to be" Ava replied, slightly defensively.
"Do you want to be ordered around by me?" I asked. Why did I ask that? I don't know which answer I wanted to hear.
She looked away "I wouldn't... mind it." She said.
Huh. Okay.
As we walk in, once again we're in the large, open, impressive vestibule. Over in a corner is a desk where one of the insect people - I really need to learn their names - is sitting looking bored I think. They have a book open and were reading. I stride up to them."Hello. Please tell me where I can find Starlight on a Moonless Evening or Vivvex please." I try not to use the voice this time.
Incredibly, they look over at me and their expression does not change. They are utterly unimpressed. "The Regents are in a meeting and have stated that they are not to be disturbed. I can take a message if you would like, they will reply to you by runner within one standard month."
Amazing. They are utterly unfazed. We should keep this one when we sit upon the throne. They have a skill.
"That's not necessary." I say brightly. "Can you direct me to where the Regents are meeting?" I attempt to put just a little bit of the voice into the request.
I needn't have bothered. "They're in meeting room 345. It's on the third floor, sunward side."I bow very slightly and the glowing wings dip just a bit. "Thank you friend. What is your name?"
"I am Fel."
"Well Fel, please don't go far. I feel that I'll have a use for you very soon."
"Yes, Empress."I blink. "Wait, how did you know I'm the Empress?"
"You were able to get the guards out front to stand down with a word, you are dressed in a very complicated outfit, you look like the statue out front and you have glowing wings and a glowing crown"
Yes. We like this one.
"Er yes. When you explain it like that it does make sense, Thank you Fel."
"Empress." He turns back to the book he was reading.
Up the stairs and down the hall until I'm front of a room with 345 written on a placard to the side. Next to the door I can read a little slider. One one side is "OCCUPIED" and I slide it the other way and it reads "OPEN". Offices really are the same everywhere. Huh. I feel disappointed learning that.
I try the door, and it's not even locked. Opening it, I step in and...
"I'm telling you, there's nothing to be worried about." Starlight on a Moonless Evening and Rapid River Roaring and talking to Vivvix and Zemmlin. Nobody is facing the door.
"I'm convinced they don't even know what they are" Zemmlin says. "They don't have the air of Builders, even if they look like them."
"I agree" Rapid River Roaring says, taking a sip of something from a steaming mug. "They don't have the organs for the hard work of ruling."
"If that's the case, then let the 'translator' that I gave them do its work. The problem will solve itself." Ottarn is talking over a screen from somewhere else.
I lean back out of the office - they really haven't noticed me yet - and look to Ava, Mei'la and Fer'resi and wink. Ava grins wickedly, Mei shakes her head and Fer'resi looks nervous.
With some concentration, I turn up the imperial regalia. The crown glows more intently, the wings look a little more elaborate and they start to flutter as if they are being rusted by a breeze that doesn't exit.
C̸̰̽͜e̷̡͌̀a̴̱̗̿ṡ̶̼̲̽ë̴͔̙ ̶͈͕͋̑y̶̥̓̃ö̷̪͈ù̶̢̠r̸̖̩͠ ̷̪̩͑c̵̝̾͝h̷̠̻͂a̶͇̐t̵͓͕͗t̸̯̖̋e̵̺͒r̴͈͑̕ ̶̡̟͋̎ä̴̻̝t̴̝̙̂ ̴̡̡͝o̷̢̐n̵̟̰͋ć̵̜̩̋e̵̥͕͊̔.̵͔͔̾̈́
As if I pressed the mute button, they all stopped talking. Horrified, they turn to face me. I step out so that Ottarn can see me. Interesting. I wonder if Ottarn is compelled to stop speaking, or if they're just startled. I bet the Voice doesn't work over a radio signal.
"You think us weak? You think us meek?" I lay it on thick. Ava is reveling in it. "You realize you were visited by Builders who did not yet know their true nature and you choose to hide it from them? To attempt to use them for your own ends? To further your own power? The moment I spoke the Holy Words to you, you knew your days ruling this place were numbered.
"I look up at the screen. "And you. Giving my linguist a false translator when all he wanted was to better understand you and be understood. He has received his lesson he understands you better than you know. Ottarn, speak. Tell me your location."
"I-I-I am aboard our ship, Holy One The Sea-Light."
"Disembark at once and return to this building. I will await your return.
"I turn to face the ones in the room. I have not given them permission to speak and they are staring at me with wide eyes, shaking with fear.
I point to Rapid River Roaring. "You. Fetch three working translators. Speak to no one."He stands up so quickly his chair falls over. Ignoring the toppled chair he practically runs out of the meeting room.
I jab a finger at Vivvex. "You. Speak. Where is the Throne in this Starbase."
The what? What am I asking about?
The Throne is where you rule. All Starbases have one. When you visit any Starbase, that's your main location. They are usually near the docks, though not always.
"There is an entrance in the promenade, Empress. We don't know how to open it though. I swear Empress, it was the others, Rapid River Roaring and Starlight on a Moonless Evening who conspired to keep you from your right. We were nothing but unwitting pawns!"
Oh, they called me Empress instead of Holy One.
They see the writing on the wall. They are trying to save themselves. Pitiable.
Just then, Rapid River Roaring returns, out of breath. I do believe they ran the entire way. In his clawed hand are three translators on little black straps. They're meant to be worn around the waist with a subdermal connection on the throat to facilitate speaking without having a constant din of both languages. I concentrate at them for a moment and my eyes flare yellow orange.
They are true translators, Empress.
I take them from him without comment, and turn to my team. "Here. This is how you wear them. I reach over to Ava and she blushes again as I fasten it around her waist, and then paste the subdermal to her neck and put a bone conductive dot behind her ear. "Try it."
"Okay, how do I sound? Can these..." She sneers "Sapients understand me?"
I look at them. Rapid River Roaring nods and said "Yes, we understand you perfectly, Builder."
I go to Mei'la and Fer'resi and help them put their own translators on as well.
"This is so neat!" Ava looks at me and smiles. "I swear Melody. If this Empress thing doesn't work you can make some real money in the High Mars orbitals or the Outer Planet Alliance doing dom work. You've got an unrealized gift.
"Now that she's understood, both of the Aviens feathers flutter in titillated embarrassment at what she just said of their Empress. I raise an eyebrow at them and they immediately look down and start to cower.
"No, don't cower. It grows so tiresome. Where is Ottarn?" Their looks of frightened confusion tell me they don't know either. I have a hunch. I radio FarReach. "FarReach, this is Melody, can you tell me if any of the ships in dock have moved?"
"Actually yes, Melody." FarReach answers "One of the mid sized ships opposite us blew their umbilical in a shower of dust and seems to be attempting to run."
Gene adds, They're having engine problems though. Their power output is very low. I don't think we'd have any trouble stopping them."
Hmm. "How long do you estimate before they reach the Gate?"
"More than a day at their current speed. Maybe even two."
"Okay, watch them, and if they get close to the point where you can't catch up to them let me know."
"Uh okay, Melody, if the Captain is fine with it."
"She will be, Gene."
"Hmm." Gene sounds less sure than me.
"I turn back to the Avien and Mariens in the room. "You compatriot has abandoned you. They feel they will have better luck trying to outrun my Starjumper in their creaky old ship. Enough of this. They will receive my full attention soon enough. Lead me to the Throne.
"They get up from their chairs and wordlessly leave the room. We follow them.

2023.05.29 21:32 Own_Association508 Pickup truck to buy

I’m going through trucks to buy for my job, and I’m noticing keep is coming out as one of the lowest priced ones. Should I go with it, or go with a dependable truck like a Ram 2500?

2023.05.29 21:29 Atomfix How well does Alien Isolation play on the MacBook Pro (2018)?

Genuine question here. Just found out that Alien Isolation is available to play on the Mac. But before I buy, How well does it play on the MacBook Pro (2018) That I've got? The specs are listed below.
Intel CPU Quad i5 2.3GHz Intel Iris 655 UHD 16GB RAM
If I connect my Xbox controller via Bluetooth, will it work?

2023.05.29 20:38 letr1 What would you recommend for a truck that can be used in a year for 5th wheel

we are looking for a truck under 8 000 Canadian Dollars, it has to be capable of towing 24ft 5th wheel that we will buy next year. This year we just want to use the truck as our camper :)
Iv been looking at 2001 silverados, 2006 ram 2500, and some f250 but all of them are known for transmission issues when they have around 200 000km on it. And all of these trucks are 200k-280k km
We are also looking for gas as diesel is just too expensive to maintain. We will be on the road till the end of the season and then work through winter to get the 5th wheel.
What should i look out for?
Thank you

It's been a long time since I've been able to give my 2018 2.0 6MT the thorough cleaning it needs...of course the rock chips in the grill and few other beauty marks are there, I'm still happy with how this thing looks with some shine.

2023.05.29 19:01 Able_Possession8736 A Comprehensive Guide to Pro Football Video Game Covers

Another Madden $70 re-skin is upon us, so let's take a moment to explore the history of all the people who have been featured on the cover of an pro football video game.
While the selection of the Madden cover athlete is now an event, there was a wild wild west period of football games from the 80s to the mid-2000s where anybody with a computer could and would build football games, with the selection of the cover being all over the place. Roger Craig was the first cover athlete in 1985 on NFL Challenge for MS-DOS. Madden's first game was in 1988, then by the mid-90s getting a cover athlete or spokesman for your football game was pretty standard.
I wanted to compile those games and covers based on this Wiki article (and a few that it was missing from that list) and see who was on the main cover of all of those games (some games were almost completely irrelevant, so I left them off this list). Some of these may have more alternates with other people, but I'll stick with the main cover.

Covers by Position

*These are heavily boosted by John Madden being on 10 Madden covers
Obviously QBs dominate here, but I didn't realize how little defensive players have been on football game covers (9%), with none being on a cover since Richard Sherman in 2014. I'd love to see more defensive players on the Madden cover. Who would be the most likely defensive guy in the near future? Aaron Donald, TJ Watt, Nick Bosa, Myles Garrett, or Sauce Gardner?

Covers by Team

If a team's player was not a lead on the cover or was not any identifiable player, I gave them a *
The Re-skins/Commanders?, Jags, Panthers, and Bills have appeared on a cover but never with an athlete as the lead or with a real person. Only the Texans have never appeared at all on the cover of any football video game. I'd say the Bills are most likely to get one next (Josh Allen), then the Jags (Trevor Lawrence), then the Panthers/Texans if either hits a home run with Young or Stroud. The Commanders have a long road ahead to getting a feature cover athlete, unless you ask Sam Howell who thinks he should be this year's Madden cover athlete.

Most Prolific Cover People

Kordell Stewart, Daunte Culpepper, and Donovan McNabb (and possibly Lamar Jackson, still too early for him) are the only players with multiple appearances that are either not or are unlikely to make the Hall of Fame. McNabb is the only guy to appear in multiple covers in the same year. Also of note, 7 athletes were on a cover without ever making a pro bowl in their careers: Brad Muster, Pat Terrell, Gordon Laro, Chris Zorich, Albert Fontenot, William Floyd, and Peyton Hillis (Hillis was the only one to be the primary cover athlete).
I'll list all the games and their respective covers by their era below. I'll also attach some of my favorite covers from each era. If the cover person was a Hall of Famer, I'll mark them with a \). If they're very likely to make the HoF but they're not yet eligible, I'll mark them with a +

Covers by Era

Decade # of Games # of Games w/Cover Athletes # of Cover Athletes
60s 1 0 0
70s 4 0 0
80s 11 2 (18%) 2
90s 36 32 (89%) 21
00s 40 38 (95%) 36
10s 14 10 (71%) 12
20s 8 4 (50%) 5
Total 114 86 (75%) 76
We didn't see the first cover athlete until 1985 with Roger Craig. They didn't really become standard until the early to mid-90s after Madden became a big selling point for the early Madden games. The dip in the last 2 decades is because there's just less games, so any generic football games will have a large effect.

The Early Days: 1965-1982

1978: Football! for the Magnavox Odyssey 2 was the first football video game with a cover, but obviously the cover athletes are generic.
Year Game Cover Athlete Team Position
1972 Football (Magnavox) NA NA NA
1978 Football! Generic players NA NA
1978 Football (Atari) Generic players NA NA
1979 NFL Football Generic players NA NA
1982 Realsports: Football Generic players NA NA

The 2D Era: 1983-1996

1985: NFL Challenge was the first football game with a real cover athlete (Roger Craig). This was the original bar for realism in football simulation, to where it was used in a 1988 ESPN Program \"NFL Dream Season\" where they simulated the greatest teams of all time against each other.
1988: John Madden Football released on the Apple II, MS-DOS, and Commodore 64/128 (partly being developed by Bethesda), which was the beginning of the most dominant franchise in football video games. They featured no NFL teams due to a lack of an NFL license.
1991: Tecmo Super Bowl is probably still my personal favorite football video game. It's totally timeless, and if you pick the Raiders then you're a cheater.

The Parity Era: 1997-2004

1997: NFL Blitz came from Midway studios and was a breath of fresh air for football games. They had mostly been stagnant trying to hone in on realistic simulation in 2D form, whereas Blitz came out in 3D and threw realism out the window. I definitely spent too much money on the arcade version of this game.
2000: Madden 2001 started the tradition of having their games feature a cover athlete in this format, which consolidated into nearly everyone following this trend.
2001: Backyard Football 2002 was a more kid-friendly version of a football video game, and they also had other games for other professional sports. I definitely played this a lot on my old Windows Me computer, and Pablo Sanchez is a god.
2002: NFL Fever was Microsoft's foray into football video games on the original Xbox. All 3 of their games featured Peyton Manning as the cover athlete.
2002: NFL GameDay 2003 was 989 Sports' exclusive for Sony on the PlayStation platform.
2004: ESPN NFL 2K5 was the last great football game before the NFL exclusively gave their license to the EA. It was this game that definitely led to NFL's decision though, as they slashed their release price to an unheard of $20, which forced Madden 2004 to release at $30 instead of the typical $50. This pissed off the NFL, who decided to have less competition instead.

The Madden Era: 2005-Present

2005: NFL Street 2 was the second in the NFL Street series as a kind of spiritual successor to NFL Blitz. EA tried to have some diversity in their football video games outside of the Madden franchise, so they had the short-lived Street franchise under \"EA BIG\"
2006: NFL Head Coach was a new perspective on NFL Games where you play as the coach instead of the players. I enjoyed these although they could get a little boring.
2007: All Pro Football 2K8 was 2K's attempt at keeping the 2K football franchise alive without the coveted NFL license. They got three HoF players on the cover in Elway, Barry, and Rice, but not the actual license to any NFL team. This game received praise for its mechanics, but poor sales showed that a non-NFL licensed game would always struggle to make it.
2011: Madden 12 was maybe the last good Madden game. Also, Peyton Hillis. The only guy on a NFL football game cover to never make a Pro Bowl. This guy is an actual hero though, so good for him.
2019: Doug Flutie's Maximum Football was a mix of american and CFL football as another attempt at making a football game without the NFL license to poor results. They have announced a new game as a free to play title on new platforms, but no games in this franchise have released since 2020.
2020: Retro Bowl is a mobile game more in the style of Tecmo Super Bowl than Madden. It's probably the most successful non-Madden game since ESPN NFL 2K5, and it's pretty fun. People should definitely give this one a try since it's free to play on any mobile platform.
2022: Madden 23 gave the cover back to Madden for the first time since 1999 to honor the passing of the legend John Madden. Unfortunately the game inside the cover was crap, has been the style of Madden games for over a decade.

2023.05.29 18:52 Michtrk Alternate History of the People's Republic of China (Reworked China lore)

Alternate History of the People's Republic of China (Reworked China lore)
Five Generations of Chinese leaders Poster
1. Brief period of peace (1949-1951) and Third phase of the Chinese civil war (1951-1953)
1949 Huang He ceasefire meant de-iure division of China between two independent states. Both KMT and CPC disproved of this, both claimed to be one and one and only government of whole unified China. There was even a plan to give a separate UN seat to Mao’s government, but due to ROC opposition this proposal failed. Newly declared “People’s Republic of China/Beijing Government” (or alternatively in its full actual name between 1949- and 1953-People’s Liberation Government of the Republic of China) did not gain almost any official international recognition (with one exception being Korea).
However, in 1951 the ceasefire was already broken. Numerous clashes started alongside the Huang He already months of signing of the ceasefire during 1949 and 1950. Neither KMT nor CPC planned to abide by 1949 ceasefire in the future anyway, for them it was just temporally peace and prepared for the final fight. Mao was strongly advised by Stalin to not break status quo, this however incensed Mao, who (in private) accused Stalin of wanting to “sacrifice Chinese revolution to Western Imperialism”. Similarly, Chiang was reminded from Americans that U.S. would not support any offensive against communists. Moreover, president Taft stood for policy of non-interference in Chinese matters, so KMT was now in no position to start any offensive, but Chiang hoped for change in American leadership.
So, it was Mao, who fired the first shot. On the 26th of December 1950 (Mao Zedong’s birthday) PLA crossed the Huang He and launched full scaled offensive. KMT’s military managed to reorganize from defeats from 1946-1949 phase and in the first weeks of the war successfully hold on, but Chiang now, he could not do that for long without any support. Chiang brought the issue to the United Nations, but notion was rejected. U.S. declined all call for support. USSR in response did also not aid PRC. Communists, similarly as in the previous years, had on their side peasantry (who could actually see positive effects of early and reforms and campaigns between 1949 and 1950, which were launched in North China) and gained upper hand and pushed down the South. Already by spring 1952 communist forces captured Nanjing and continued further South. As Chiang expected change in the White House came, but it was to late for him as his forces were already shattered by communists.
  1. Early years of the People’s Republic of China (1953-1962)
1st February 1953 People’s Republic of China was proclaimed, last KMT remnants evacuated to Taiwan supported by U.S. under new leadership of MacArthur. So what Mao’s China is? Very similar to OTL, but since it is founded later some thing change due to changing outside conditions.
§ Land reform (partly in North since 1947, fully in North since 1949, 1953-1956 in rest of China) – same, land redistributed among peasants, landlords murdered.
§ Marriage, Education reforms (1953-1957)
§ Campaign to Suppress Counterrevolutionaries/Anti-Campaigns (1954-1958)
§ 1957 Hundred Flowers Campaign, that was followed by the Anti-Rightist Movement (1958)
§ 1957 the First 5Year Plan
China saw increase in living standards and economy between 1953-1962
Relations with USSR
Stalin died quickly after Chinese unification, this was beneficial for China since distrust between Stalin and Mao between 1949 and 1953 damaged Sino-Soviet relations. In 1953 socialist bloc recognised China and in 1954 Sino-Soviet Treaty of Friendship was signed between Mao and Khruschev (later extended to rest of socialist Europe) – this one was more equal for China than the OTL one, China gained many experts and technicians from USSR, Chinese workers were sent to USSR and Europe to fill same shortages.
Beginnings of the Sino-Soviet split (1956-1961) and Sino-Soviet split (1961-1962)
Destalinisation in 1956 brough many ideological disagreements between Mao and Khrushchev (who was denounced by Mao as a revisionist), however many aspects such as Chinese need of economic aid and fear of MacArthur’s aggressive policy kept them together. China reacted to Hungarian revolution and condemned USSR for “bowing to the imperialist demands”, similar criticism Khrushchev received after non taking any direct action against the invasion of Egypt just few weeks later. In 1957 the First 5Year Plan was launched, this one was still developed with help of the soviet experts.
During 1960s relations started to deteriorate more and more. One of final straws was 1960 Second Taiwan Strait Crisis, which China started without consulting USSR (and risking the war with MacArthur). During the war in Cuba Mao demanded Khruschev to take direct military action to support Cuba and denounced Khruschev a a “revisionist traitor to communism, coward who knows only how capitulate to imperialist demands”, after these relations between USSR and China were finally broken. In 1962 formal declarations formulated each ideological position.
  1. The Great Leap Forward and fall of Mao Zedong (1962-1966)
Now isolated, same as OTL (but with obvious delay of 4 years) Mao Zedong launched his infamous Great Leap Forward and caused Great Chinese Famine resulting into deaths of 36 – 45 million people. After his Mao Zedong is forcefully side-lined during Seven Thousand Cadres Conference of 1966, moderates Liu Shaoqi, Zhou Enlai and Deng Xiaoping now ruled the country.
  1. Mao’s attempts to regain power and death (1967-1969)
Found himself in the same situation as in our reality, Mao attempted to reassert his power. Already in 1967, he launched Socialist Education Movement. Development in the rest of the communist world did also impact China, despite the official condemnation of the European Spring, Deng and Liu watched the economic reforms with large interest and them with associated reformists started to develop new plans for economic reconstruction, this led to final split between them and Mao. Mao instead worked on his own plan, utilizing need for governmental reform dealing with increasing bureaucratisation and corruption. In 1969 Mao presented the April 16 Notification, claiming that contra revolutionaries are infiltrating CPC. Soon fist mass rallies of maoist students started and schools have closed. Then Mao Zedong completely disappeared from the public, after the three weeks of silence on 16th June 1969 national broadcast announced that chairman Mao Zedong had died. Official explanation was hearth attack; however, many did not believe such explanation, most importantly radicals in the Student Red Guards, who believed Mao was murdered by counterrevolutionaries inside the Party.
(Reason for Mao’s death is only partly true. CPC officials knew it, but decided to hide it, because it is...ehm...embarrassing. The true reason of his death is in this World regarded just a “crazy conspiracy theory”. On 20th May 1969 Mao Zedong decided to swim across river Yagnze, as he did OTL, now almost 77 years old man suffered a heart attack during this swim and he started to quickly drowning, people who were close to him managed to pull chairman out of water and transported him to doctor, but it was too late.)
  1. The Red Guards Rebellion (1969-1970)
Large masses gathered on the Tiananmen Square (more than a million of people), many of these people were radicalised student red guards, who refused to leave and turned Mao’s funeral into a large demonstration, accusing the CPC leadership of treachery and murders (as response to this some official, knowing the true version released it, thus it is known as conspiracy). The Tiananmen manifestation was suppressed by PLA troops loyal to the CPC leadership. This was however not the end, but the beginning – all around the country the Red Guards launched what they called the “Second Chinese Revolution” with slogans like “Down with reactionary clique of Liu Shaoqi –upheld Mao Zedong’s thought, Mao Zedong still alive in our hearts” etc. It was nothing but open civil war between radical rough red guards and Chinese governments, some figures like Jiang Qing did also join the side of the guards. Crucial for putting the rebellion down was that Lin Biao (former close ally of Mao) joined forces with Deng and Liu. Effects of the Red Guards rebellion were disastrous, according to various accounts 300-500 thousand people died (but sill had less impact than OTL Cultural Revolution). This rebellion was used also used as excuse to launch Campaign against counterrevolutionary gangs (1970-73), that purged the party from far-left faction. End of rebellion started the Eliminating Chaos and Returning to Normal period.
  1. Tetrarchy leadership and Four Cardinal Principles (1970-1974)
When situation stabilised, new leadership secured power – Liu, Chen, Zhou, and Lin. First two represented the moderate reformist wing, while Lin Biao represented the conservatives, he played pivotal role since his control over PLA. Zhou Enlai acted as moderator. Deng Xiaoping was also very influential as vice-premier. Campaign against counterrevolutionary gangs eventually weakened Lin Biao’s position and he was forced to retire. During this time basis of “Reform and Normalization” efforts were created. Four Cardinal Principles were approved and later put into 1978 constitution. Party also approved its view of Mao Zedong, upholding his status and giving responsibility for last events of his life solely to “counterrevolutionary gangs twisting the words of chairman Mao to destabilise China and strife for power” (so, because there is no Cultural Revolution Mao is viewed better…but he still still criticized for “making some mistakes” during the Great Leap Forward).
Efforts were made to revive economy, looking to the Soviet Union’s successful reform to inspiration.
  1. Liu Shaoqi/Chen Yun/Deng Xiaoping and Four Modernizations (1974-1991)
When Lin Biao was removed nothing stood against Chinese reform. This reform was inspired by the European ones but took more market character (still not that much market as did Deng’s OTL reform), despite Deng and Chen were mostly the architects of the reforms, Liu Shaoqi become the main face of era during 1970s and 1980s, then being followed by Chen Yun (so Deng is least known from them). Also, instead of Deng, Chen Yun become more influential (as he was the leader of the communist party, it fits the scenario well as he was more moderate about the reforms than Deng OTL)
Together with economic reform also come a political reform, in 1978 new constitution was created (very similar to that of OTL 1982), there was also limited political and cultural liberalisation.
China restored relations with the USSR and European socialist bloc (split was even less tense since 1969 border conflict did not happen) during 1970s. Andrei Gromyko visited Beijing in 1982 and Deng went on a tour through Europe in 1984. Unlike OTL Nixon was not in China and US-Chinese relations did not improve till 1985, when President Jesse Jackson become the first president to visit China, he met with the President Liu Shaoqi (he was seriously ill 87 years old man and died few months after) and Deng. U.S. recognised China and China gained UN seat. American capitalists started to invest into Chinese special economic zones.
In 1986 Liu dies and general secretary Chen Yun takes his position, leaving his position for Hu Yaobang.
With many changing in this timeline there are still some protests in 1989 as OTL, but never grow to such extent and there is no need to suppress them.
American businesses relocating to China is now more part of the lore (some of the still do, but is just exception than rule) because China partly joins the Soviet sanctions on Rumsfeld’s regime and works more on deepening relations with Europe and Third World.
8. Third and Fourth Generation of Leadership – Hu and Hu (1991-2011)
During this period, similarly as OTL China experiences its rapid rise. Similar people are in charge, political system is almost the same. Difference is the more socialist oriented economy. Hong Kong returned to China (Macau did already in 1975 after Portuguese Revolution). These years are considered to be the most democratic.
9. Bo Xilai – new left, neomaoism (2011 – present)
In 2011 Bo Xilai became the new leader of China. He is very different leader than the previous. Former major of Chongqing instituted model from his city nationwide. Maoist era aesthetics were revived (red songs, propaganda, personality cult), he focuses on achieving full employment, bettering living standards of the workers, while keeping the current market-oriented model (with exaggeration it could be called “social democracy”), he promotes social progressivism, voluntary communal collectives were also recreated. His most controversial actions was his large Anti-Corruption and Organised Crime Campaign (2012-2015) in which many both civilian and military officials, business leaders and leading politicians (including Xi Jinping) were arrested imprisoned for alleged corruption. Bo changed constitution (approved by popular referendum) to abolish term limits. Following COVID crisis he further secured hi power. He officially instituted the Bo Xilai Thought on Chinese Socialism as new state ideology, his policy is also known as “Common prosperity” (equivalent to Xi’s Chinese Dream). Many accuse him of creating personality cult and being overall authoritarian and supressing opposition.
Leadership list since 1969
Premier: Zhou Enlai (died 1976), Deng Xiaoping (1976(1978)-1988), Li Peng (1988-1998), Jiang Zemin (1998-2008), Wen Jiabao (2008-2018), Zhou Yongkang (since 2018)

  • "Danny seems really down to Earth and a people person. He is also very aware of how people perceive him which is really important in all aspects of the game. A physical asset for his tribe, I think he will make strong early bonds and be likeable enough to end up as the Sole Survivor."
  • "Based on his preseason profile, Danny will be a strong physical player who nevertheless understands the importance of being kind and developing positive relationships. He cites Jeremy as an inspiration for his gameplay, which I think is a wise choice."
  • "Tom Westman 2.0 (is what I'm telling myself anyways)"

Users were given to a chance to explain their winner picks. We have compiled some of those quotes below:
  • "Lauren seems very social and approachable as a person, especially with the social game becoming more important and impactful in seasons 41-43 with the smaller tribe format. I can see her getting into that early majority and making good run at the merge - I think she’ll be a very logical, social and smart player."
  • "The logo has a woman with an afro. Season 43 had a person that looked like Gabler on the logo, so I’m hoping that carries over!"
  • "I want someone who plays an aggressive game to win, we’ve had too many “subtle” winners. I definitely think a Ratu’s winning this season."
  • "Lauren is adept at handling drama being someone recently divorced. I think people will severely underestimate her and I believe she knows how to act appropriately around certain people, given she is an elementary school teacher. I also think she'll give a killer FTC performance."

Carson was ranked 11/18 in Winner Picks.

  • +/- to real rank: -9

Why Did People Think Carson would win?

Users were given to a chance to explain their winner picks. We have compiled some of those quotes below:
  • "In preseason interviews, Carson has mentioned studying the game loads of times. With his young age and acquired knowledge to play the game decently, especially involving ideas focused on reducing perception of threat level, the cast will likely downplay his abilities, allowing him to go far and take the money."
  • "He appears to be extremely intelligent, which will definitely serve him well. Even though he’s young, I think he has a good grasp of what the game entails and will be able to integrate himself well on his tribe.
  • "back to back seasons often share similarities and Carson is the most similar to Jesse from season 43 who probably played the "best" game overall.
  • "Carson seems like the ideal mix of intelligence, athleticism and cunning, while still managing to seem non-threatening due to his age and cheerful, childlike personality. I think he'll easy make the merge, and from that point on the biggest battle will be managing his threat level."
  • "Big sophomore-by-credit-hours energy"

Carolyn was ranked 2/18 in Winner Picks.

She had 100 of 1,380 total picks (7.25%).

  • Median calculated guess for "how many people picked the same person as you": 103 (rounded)
  • Calculated guess percentage: 7.46%

  • +/- to real rank: +2

Why Did People Think Carolyn would win?

Users were given to a chance to explain their winner picks. We have compiled some of those quotes below:
  • "Mother! Carolyn may seem like an eclectic and "out there" pick but just look at our last two winners. Maryanne and Gabler proved that wacky and fun characters can win this game and I believe that the trend will continue with Queen Carolyn."
  • "I've watched her play ORGs before and she was a fun player in those and usually would place well. Her personality is chaotic but she is a smart and caring player and I think that would help her win."
  • "Picking someone like Carolyn 3 seasons ago would be an insane choice for most people but I think with the past few winners we're seeing now that archetypes that were previously only casted to be zany characters are now able to make strategic moves and win the game. I think Carolyn is someone who can play similar games to a Maryanne and Gabler by using her quirky persona while making strategic moves with players who might underestimate her at the start."
  • "I played Survivor with her in an ORG! She was the first boot both times, but she has gone on to win other online orgs! She is an absolute Queen/Icon and even though she is out there, she has an incredible social game, and she's going to be very smart and in-tune with the people around her. I have 0 doubt that she's going to be iconic this season, and I'm delighted that she can represent people who play survivor online because they love the game that much."
  • "She's weird. I like that."

Heidi was ranked 15/18 in Winner Picks.

She had 38 of 1,380 total picks (2.75%).

  • +/- to real rank: 0

Why Did People Think Heidi would win?

Users were given to a chance to explain their winner picks. We have compiled some of those quotes below:
  • "Heidi seems very personable and friendly, and does not stand out as a strategic threat. This has been a pattern for winners in the "new era" and I hope she can survive the early merge and slip under the radar through the jury phase."
  • "We're due for another Puetro Rican winner, and Heidi will be more lowkey of the 2 options. She seems like a more nuturing version of Sandra who has the challenge ability to elevate her game to the next level."
  • "I have maintained since the start of 41 that the new 26-day format benefits those who slow play it the best. I still feel that the mom archetype has a good chance to win if they get to the end, as they have not won in a long time. I picked Heather, Marya, and Lindsay the last 3 seasons, I’m sticking to my guns and picking Heidi."
  • "I chose Heidi because she wants to play like Angelina. How can she lose ?"
  • "I always get it wrong when I use careful reasoning so this time I picked a name that I like."

Yam Yam was ranked 1/18 in Winner Picks.

He had 337 of 1,380 total picks (24.42%).
Of the people who picked Yam Yam as their winner pick:
  • Median calculated guess for "how many people picked the same person as you": 155 (rounded)
  • Calculated guess percentage: 11.23%
  • Rank of estimated guesses: 1
  • +/- to real rank: 0

Why Did People Think Yam Yam would win?

Users were given to a chance to explain their winner picks. We have compiled some of those quotes below:
  • "I literally love talking to barbers/hair stylists because they have so much gossip. I feel like they are actually selective with the information they share, but by the end you are usually able to make a good friend. So, this led me to debating between Yam Yam and Matthew because this is a skill I feel like we rarely see on Survivor, and in the new era I think a lot of people are going to find these social war-horses as big threats. Yam Yam stands out as someone that can just make people laugh and seem like he's not playing the game. However, I feel like he's hiding a coniving, sneaky side that people may see in someone like Tony that gets him to a good position, and then suddenly you're looking at no way of stopping the Yam Yam battering ram."
  • "he owns a salon. we all know that many people like their hair laid to perfection, and i can only assume this is how Yam Yam will play survivor. there is no room for error when you are a hairdresser, and Yam Yam will apply his styling skills to survivor and slay the jury with his fashionable yet strategic endeavors."
  • "They are or used to be a drag queen if I’m not mistaken. And everyone knows that drag queens are cutthroat af, so Yam Yam ftw."
  • "Yam Yam seems so unassuming and funny that he’ll lower the guards of the other castaways while making good social connections. I think he can sneak his way to the end by not appearing as a strategic or physical threat on the surface and then his social game will get him the votes."
  • "Top-tier meme pick. Naseer wills it."

2023.05.29 18:36 Apart-Plankton9951 Derrick Rose’s career would have declined regardless of injuries

I’m my opinion, Derrick Rose’s play-style would only be successful for the early 2010s up to the 2015-16 season at best. The game was changing with 3-ball after that season with the success of the Warriors, Rockets and Cavaliers. Rose never had a jump shot that would translate well for pull ups, slightly contested 3 pointers and catch and shoot opportunities. He never developed it at a high level even with his injuries. Even my definition of success is a little broad. I think we would have seen him in a conference final or two but never in a finals. Even in 2011, he was shooting inefficiently in the playoffs. His best chance to win make it to the finals would have been during the Lebron Cavs era because the Miami Heat with lebron were too dominant. Even then, the lebron led Cavs would have beaten the bulls every year, expect possibly 2018 but I still give the edge to that version of lebron. Then again, that bulls roster would have probably not survived by 2018 if they kept losing in the eastern conference. Derrick Rose was also a below average defender even though he was athletically gifted. The team he is on would have to create a tailored roster around him to make things work. This was also the case for Harden and Curry but both were better playmakers than Rose (I count Curry’s off ball ability as playmaking), better ball handlers and most importantly they were better floor spacers. Rose’s value as a difficult paint area shot creator would have been diminished because of the increased floor spacing. A lot more guards would be able to put up his level of efficiency in that area with decent volume.
I think that Rose’s injuries helped his legacy. People only speculated the best case scenario for what his career would have looked liked without them. They ignored his flaws and how they would have been further exploited in the mid-to-late 2010s
