  3. Some pretty highly detailed 3d printing files for WWII buildings. Kinda spendy but it does have a free sample you can check out.
  4. Thin Air- Richard K Morgan. If you liked Altered Carbon then I would say you will like this one as well. The underlying structure is pretty similar to Altered Carbon but not too much. The Sky Blue Wolves - SM Stirling The last of "The Change" series, maybe. I made it this far so I read this one. He seems to have been running out of places to take the series so it kinda just wraps up quickly. Lies Sleeping - Ben Aaronovitch. Latest in the Rivers of London series which is british police procedural with wizards. Good stuff. Space Carrier Avalon - Glynn Stewart - Saw this recommended as 'Honor Harrington without 100 pages on how space missiles work" and gave it a shot. Its decent miltary sci-fi and I need to try the next book.
  5. Hitman 2 is pretty dang good. If you own Hitman(2016) you also get all of those maps updated with the new mechanics in Hitman 2. If not you can just pay $20 to add those in. If you have not played the last game, its an action puzzle game where the puzzle is how sneakily or badly you can murder some folks in various ways. The different environments are interesting and fun to explore. For example the first map is an F1 race where you have to get one of the drivers and their Tony Stark arms manufacturer father who is putting on a demo of murder androids next door.
  6. Build quality of an original vs cheap(er) knock offs. People like the ender 3 because, relative to what has come before it, its build quality and potential performance are pretty great for ~200. Having said that some people have to do a good amount of tweaking and calibration to get great prints out of the Ender 3. Like I had to buy a glass plate because my build surface wasn't that level. Or the filament will rub against the z-axis rod so you have to print something to prevent that.
  7. I would check out the /r/printedminis and /r/3dprintedtabletop subreddits to get an idea of what sort of real world results people are getting from various printers. I got a Creality Ender3 but didn't get much of a chance to use it because we decided to move. I haven't had a chance to set it back up again. Its comes about halfway assembled and it seems like half of the people are printing amazingly from the start and half are having to work at it.
  8. Dragon 3d printing files -
  9. First, just wearing a gasmask for any length of time sucks. Doing physical activity in one really sucks. Also you can't really see great so unless you really are trying to stop breathing I wouldn't try riding a bike in traffic in one. According to some Oregon Health Authority tweets the n95 masks block the smoke but they need to be professionally fitted to work. Last this is apparently the best way to build a DIY filter with a box fan. https://tombuildsstuff.blogspot.com/2013/06/better-box-fan-air-purifier.html

  11. AMD just released a new processor with integrated graphics that seems to be pretty good for budget gaming. If you are still thinking about upgrading you might want to check it out. https://techreport.com/review/33235/amd-ryzen-3-2200g-and-ryzen-5-2400g-processors-reviewed

    D+D Maps

    In a similar vein https://twitter.com/unchartedatlas is a twitter bot that procedurally generates maps. Nothing quite as nice as these but its pretty cool.
  13. So if almost everything is 5 years old you might be able to squeeze into that price point. What I don't know is if it will be that much better. As Romans said decent video cards are hard to grab right now but if you try for something a little older or less powerful you might be able to find it. The problem is will cpu+motherboard+ram+video card at 500ish still be a decent enough upgrade. You might try using http://www.userbenchmark.com/PCBuilder to build out a current system profile then build out an upgrade system to see if it makes sense.
