One of my favorite games for the tablet is Galaxy on Fire 2. It fulfills my Star Wars fantasies from youth because you can fly around the galaxy, fight pirates and aliens in space, buy and sell commodities, and complete pretty fun missions.
If you are looking to make money to buy a better ship or better weapons, trading commodities is an easy and relatively violence-free way of doing so. You will need decent capital and a decent amount of cargo space on your ship before it becomes profitable. It would be hard to earn money starting with less than $200,000 in capital and less than 100t of cargo space aboard your ship.
Here is a google table containing all the commodity prices, best, worst, and the profit margin / price difference of trading.
I made this spreadsheet by buying one of every commodity that I could find and then copying it out “Hangar” view. This is for GoF2 on Android and probably doesn’t apply to the original GoF.
When time permits, I hope to write a greedy algorithm that goes through the price lists and systems list and calculates the most profitable and most optimal trading route :)No comments
Ordered stuff from Amazon. The Prime shipped box via fedex arrived last night, but the USPS shipped box says “March 25th delivery”, six days from now. Even though the package is already in DC!
This is stuff I need for Sam’s bachelor party this weekend at the Cosmo in Vegas. Super excited.No comments
It isn’t as straightforward as one would like to set up a Roku 3 and a Logitech Harmony One remote. Some things that could be more obvious:
- Where is the Roku device on the “Devices” list?
It’s hidden under Devices -> DVD -> DVD -> Manufacturer: Roku -> Roku 3
It will come up as a DVD player, so you definitely want to rename the device by clicking “Settings” -> “Rename Device” and calling it a Roku3.
- Does the Harmony One have the right IR/RF control mechanisms to control a Roku?
Yes, it does. Mine is working perfectly after just configuring it with Logitech Harmony Remote Software. Logitech gives you some options to point the Roku remote at the backside of the Harmony remote, and pushing some Roku remote keys to learn. But the harmony, unsurprisingly, doesn’t learn when you fire things into its backside. You can skip that step.
- Why does the “Activity”->Watch Roku send commands to my TV instead of to the Roku?
Major annoying factor, but easy to fix. When I hit the “Activity” -> “Watch Roku” (I customized that name, it used to be “Watch DVD (2)”), all commands would be sent to the TV.
You can fix this by going to “Activities” -> “Watch Roku” -> “Customize Buttons”. Some buttons like Volume Control and Mute should go to your TV, but everything else can point to your Roku. See:
You can even add some custom buttons to show on the home screen with the “Additional Buttons” tab:1 comment
I keep coming across songs that I really like but can’t put my finger on what exactly I like about them. Here are two with absolutely incredible male vocals that I really really really like.
Grizzly Bear – Two Weeks.
Grizzly Bear’s lead singer’s brother was my arch nemesis in high school. He bullied most of the kids smaller than him, which was nearly everybody. He’s a nice guy now, and his brother is an incredible vocalist.
Puddles the Sad Clown with a Golden Voice – Cover of Royals (by Lorde)
The cover is arguably better than the original. The clown is a riot and his voice really is golden.
