Everyone is familiar with the sinking of the RMS Titanic, a British liner, which claimed the lives of several thousand people, when it shattered and capsized in the North Atlantic Ocean on April 15, 1912. There was several documentaries, talks, and an Oscar-winning film, and now the toy company LEGO has decided to release their biggest set ever to look like the Cursed Ship.

Making the announcement on social media, LEGO wrote that the set will have a total of 9,090 pieces! It will be designed to look like an exact replica of the ship, from the time it embarked on its maiden voyage. At the time, it was the largest ocean liner afloat.

A CNN The report says the replica will be split into three sections to reveal the interior of the ship, its grand first-class staircase spanning six decks, a Jacobean-style dining room, the engine room, and more.

The LEGO ship is said to be a 1: 200 scale model, which has recreated minute details such as the ship’s deck, the promenade deck and also the swimming pool.

Mike Psiaki, the design master of the LEGO Group, recently said in a statement: “At the time of its launch, the Titanic was the pinnacle of nautical engineering, the largest moving vehicle ever created. It has been an incredible journey to recreate this iconic ship from LEGO bricks, using blueprints created over a century ago. Designing the LEGO Titanic with such an emphasis on immense detail and scale, but also precision, allowed us to create one of the most challenging building experiences to date.

If you plan to pre-order, you can do so from November 1st. However, it will set you back $ 629.99 or INR 47,328. Are you a game?

If you like your heretics, aliens, and witches to be purged and burned, then the latest Space Marine chapter to get their codex for the 9th edition Warhammer 40,000 maybe for you. The Black Templars are a successor chapter to the Space Marines, meaning their lineage stems from one of the early founding chapters, in this case, the Imperial Fists. The Black Templars are on an eternal crusade to pass the enemies of the Emperor, who are numerous, to the edge of the sword and they enter Warhammer 40,000 9th edition with a brand new box. In this article, we’ll take a look at what’s in the Army Set and the new Black Templar Codex Supplement.

A Primaris Crusader squad leads the Black Templar charge against the enemy.

The Black Templars army set is not a Warhammer 40,000 Starter Set, it does not contain the basic rules, the dice and other accessories needed to play, and a copy of the Warhammer 40,000 Ground rules and the Space Marine Codex are required to use the models and rules in this set. The Black Templars Army Set is also a limited edition set, and while everything in the box will be available separately later, the release date for these is unknown. Games Workshop has guaranteed that anyone pre-ordering a Black Templars Army Box this weekend will receive a copy, so there’s no need to pay crazy eBay prices or stand in long lines to get a copy.

Warhammer 40,000 Black Templars Army Set.
The Warhammer 40K The Black Templars Army Set contains a solid core to help you get started with the Black Templars Chapter.

The Black Templars Army Set Contains:

  • Limited Edition Codex Supplement: Black Templars with John Blanche’s 3rd Edition Classic Artwork Cover Warhammer 40,000
  • Dark Templar Data Cards

  • Primaris Crusader Squad (four neophytes, five initiates and one sword brother)
  • Redeemer Dreadnought

All minifigures except the Redemptor Dreadnought are brand new with this set.

Warhammer 40,000 Black Templars Army Set.
All-new Black Templar units included in the Army Set.

Emperor’s Champion – The Emperor’s Champion is a powerful melee character. Armed with the Black Sword, if they are within engagement range of an enemy character, they can fight first during the combat phase, as well as re-roll hit and wound rolls against enemy characters and any other character. melee attempt against them, subtract one from the roll.

Marshal – The Marshal uses the Captain Primaris profile but has different war gear options, either an automatic flamethrower or a plasma pistol and a master’s power sword or a master’s power ax.

Primaris Crusader Squad – The Crusader Squad is a mix of neophytes and initiates led by a Sword Brother. They have access to a mix of weapons, including the Pyre Pistol and Pyreblaster, close range D6 weapons that automatically strike their targets.

Redemptor Dreadnought – This dreadnought is the only non-new minifigure in this box, and is armed with a heavy flamethrower or assault cannon and heavy assault cannon or macro plasma incinerator .

The Black Templar’s Army Box contains 525 unit points before you start adding equipment, so it’s a solid base to build up your Black Templar’s strength or add the new miniatures to an existing force.

The cover of the next Codex Black Templar supplement, when it releases separately later.

The Codex Black Templars Supplement works alongside the Codex Space Marines to create your Space Marine force. The Codex: Black Templars Supplement included in this Army Box has a limited edition cover, which will only be available with this set. When the supplement is released separately in the future, it will have different standard coverage.

Warhammer 40,000 Black Templars Army Set.
Work by John Blanche from the 3rd edition of Warhammer 40,000 and the next miniature of Chaplain Grimaldus inspired by the artwork.

The Codex Black Templars supplement includes a large section on the traditions and background of the Black Templars, as well as a section on their current status in the current Indomitus Crusade in the current narrative. It also includes rules and datasheets that make Black Templars unique, like Templar Vows, which allow players to choose between four different wishes to use during the game. These wishes have two parts, the Wish, giving all of them. Black Templar units have a bonus, such as the Emperor’s Vow to Maintain Honor, which gives units an invulnerable save of 5+, and also automatically fails wound rolls of 1 or 2 against that unit. . The second part of the Vow is the Passion, which adds a restriction to all units, these are related to the Vow, like the Passion of the Vow Suffer Not The Unclean To Live, which means that the units must charge the enemy on closer.

Warhammer 40,000 Black Templars Army Set.
The Black Templar Emperor’s Champion is a force multiplier against enemy characters.

The Codex supplement also includes Black Templar Stratagems, Warlord Traits, and Unique Relics. And it has an extremely thematic crusade section, for the crusade campaign games of Warhammer 40,000. This includes selecting a Crusade Oath, which has up to four different objectives that can be completed for rewards. The rewards are collected when all of the different items are completed, so players can go for a short oath, a one-time reward, or push for longer oaths, with huge rewards. Our crusade oath would be:

In the name of the Immortal Emperor, I hereby swear to glorify his name and to kill enemy leaders, without hesitation, in the very heart of enemy domains.

The datasheets included in the codex contain equipment options for Marshal (Captain Primaris) and Castellan (Lieutenant Primaris), as well as the characters named High Mashal Helbrecht and Chaplain Grimaldus. It details the rules for the Emperor’s Champion and the Primaris Crusader Squad, which are included in this set, as well as a First Marine Squad and the powerful Primaris Sword Brethern unit.

Warhammer 40,000 Black Templars Army Set.

If you are a Black Templar player, or looking to kickstart a Black Templar’s force, then this army set is a great way to get early access to the Codex Supplement and miniatures. We’re not sure what the cost of the set or individual items will cost when they are ultimately released separately, but this will almost certainly avoid purchasing them individually, as well as the limited edition cover of the Codex Supplement. So grab your sword and flamethrower, and let’s join the crusade to take down the enemies of the Immortal Emperor.


The copy of Black Templar Army Set used to produce this preview was provided by Games Workshop.

Indian eFTR Mini is yet another FTR750 themed miniature electric bike https://cedarlodgewestport.com/indian-eftr-mini-is-yet-another-ftr750-themed-miniature-electric-bike/ Thu, 07 Oct 2021 15:28:00 +0000 https://cedarlodgewestport.com/indian-eftr-mini-is-yet-another-ftr750-themed-miniature-electric-bike/ There’s no better way to get humans used to something than to expose them to things from a young age.

There’s no better way to get humans used to something than to expose them to things from a young age. For example, the current changes in the auto industry centered around electric drives might take some time to really make a difference for our generation, but the next one should get used to it fully by the age of majority.

Knowing this, American bicycle maker Indian is jumping into the fray with the launch this week of the eFTR Mini, an eFTR-based children’s bike that appeared about a year ago.

Much like its more capable sibling, the Mini is designed like the FTR750 racing bike that has been a dominant machine in the US Flat Track Championship for years. The new one also comes with two riding modes, low and high, suitable for children between 8 and 13 years old in the first configuration, and over 13 years old in the second.

While the first eFTR came with a 36-volt rechargeable battery (140 minutes of range in low mode at 16 km / h and 65 minutes in high mode at 24 km / h 15), the Mini is a little less efficient, hence the name.

The steel tube frame contains a 24-volt rechargeable battery that can only power the device for 30 minutes at 22.5 km / h (14 mph) in high mode, and for an undisclosed period at 16 km / h. h (10 mph) in low mode.

“The eFTR Mini is the perfect choice for many Indian Motorcycle riders and loyal customers who want to share their passion for riding with the kids in their life.” Ross Clifford, vice president of parts, apparel and accessories at Indian Motorcycle said in a statement.

“With the eFTR Mini added to our range, we are offering an offer accessible to young people to accommodate aspiring two-wheeled riders. “

Pricing for the eFTR Mini has not been announced, but for reference the top performer sells from $ 749.99.

Atlus Japan’s official Youtube channel shared the 138th Daily Demon video for the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei V. This entry highlights Koropokkuru, a breed of miniature yokai in Japanese folklore. They were calm beings who lived alongside humans and even traded with them. However, following a life-threatening incident where a young man ambushed a Koropokkuru woman to see how they looked up close, dissatisfaction with the event caused the two sides to never interact again.

Koropokkuru uses Bufula, Mabufu, Tarukaja, Rakukaja, and Ice Breath, making him a clearly ice-centric demon with helpful buffs to support himself. Koropokkuru debuted in Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, and their first Character the appearance of the game was in Persona 5.

You can consult the Shin Megami Tensei V Daily Demon video featuring Koropokkuru below:

Shin Megami Tensei V takes place after a murder occurs in today’s Tokyo that prevents the game’s protagonist from returning home. The detour may be due to fate or some other force, but he finds himself buried and unconscious.

Upon awakening, he finds himself in a new Tokyo, a post-apocalypse desert known as Da’at. He quickly discovers that he is not alone, as the demons are closing in on his location. However, a powerful being known as Nahobino appears and saves him. With this power, the protagonist can venture through Da’at and hopefully get answers about what happened to his old home.

Shin Megami Tensei V releases for Nintendo Switch on November 12, 2021.

Adventure Landing, and Putt-Putt before it, was a mainstay in the city of Tonawanda on Tuesday, October 5, 2021.


John Hickey / Buffalo News


Chicken subs and steak hoagies could soon replace miniature golf and arcade games at a location well known to children and their parents in the town of Tonawanda.

The owner of Jim’s Steakout has filed plans with the city to demolish the Adventure Landing golf course and game room, a local institution on Sheridan Drive. A restaurant with a drive-thru lane would be built. The proposal leaves open the possibility of additional commercial space on the site.

If city officials approve the plan, years of family fun would come to an end at the place many Northtowns still call its original name, Putt-Putt.

“It’s a landmark for the people of Tonawanda Town and, I guess, it’s a sign of the times,” said Tonawanda City Councilor John Bargnesi Jr., who as a child traveled to the cycle route.

The course opened decades ago at 2400 Sheridan Drive, between Belmont Avenue and Parker Boulevard, when the mini-golf craze swept across the country. Putt-Putt Golf & Games had 265 courses worldwide when its founder died in 1996, including sites in Tonawanda and on Union Road in Cheektowaga, a location which subsequently closed.

Hank Woodburn, CEO of Adventure Holdings, bought the Tonawanda property in 1998 and renamed it Adventure Landing. He sold it in 2011 for just over $ 1 million to a Florida-based real estate investment group, but continued to operate the entertainment hub.

By MADDY VITALE

Spectacular sun-drenched skies, warm breezes, boardwalk entertainment, and a plethora of shopping and dining choices – it looked like Monday had it all for residents and visitors to Ocean City.

Apart from the crowds, the difficulty in finding parking and the long lines.

Even though it wasn’t a busy day in early fall, many people were biking the boardwalk, lounging on the beaches, shopping and dining in Ocean City and savoring the last summer days.

People have said they are ready for fall, which is packed with events at the resort until New Years Eve.

Kristen and Johnny Mitchell, from Medford Lakes in Burlington County, came down to Ocean City with their 3-year-old twins Savannah and Lochlan to visit Kristen’s grandmother.

They munched on pizza and took in the ocean view before their next adventure – playing mini golf.

While they visit as often as they can in the summer, fall is their best time to come to Ocean City, they noted.

“It’s our favorite time of year to go down because the weather is nicer. It’s cooler, ”Kristen said. “We also have free parking. We plan to play mini golf after the pizza.

Johnny added, “It’s quieter now than in the summer and not too hot. I am from Scotland. We don’t like to be too hot.

Helen Eisinminger, from Ocean City, right, walks with her sister and brother-in-law Terri and Dave Ogden on the promenade.

Helen Eisinminger, from Ocean City, took a walk with her sister and brother-in-law Terri and Dave Ogden, from Phoenix, Arizona.

“I love everything they do at this time of year,” Eisinminger said. “The classic car shows and the Fall Block Party are fun. There are a lot of things the locals can enjoy. I really like how family oriented it is.

Terri Ogden added: “This is my favorite time of year because the crowds are not crazy and you can have fun and there are no long lines.”

While people admired the view from the boards, others walked down to the beach.

Cousins ​​Faith Jensen and Christine Stoudt, both from Blackwood in Camden County, enjoyed lounging on beach chairs on Ninth Street beach.

But unlike a typical sunny day in the same place where tourists flock to this beach, there were only a few other beach goers.

Faith Jensen, left, and her cousin Christine Stoudt, both from Blackwood, Camden County, bask on the beach at Ninth Street.

And it was very good for the cousins.

“It’s calm and relaxing. There was no traffic and I appreciate the weather. It’s neither too hot nor too cold, ”Jensen noted. “It’s just so calming to sit at the beach. There is just something special about it.

Stoudt said the cousins ​​discussed heading for shore a few days ago and were eager to get to Ocean City.

“It has been a stressful week for both of us so we decided to head out for some quiet time on the beach,” she noted.

Pete Angelo, of Egg Harbor Township, brought his children, Tripp, 12, and son Dominick, 1, to Ocean City for a quick getaway.

Angelo and his eldest son both helped Dominick play in the sand near the water’s edge on Eighth Street beach.

“I work in Atlantic City, so I spent the whole summer with a lot of people. It’s nice to be here to enjoy the good weather, ”said Angelo.

Pete Angelo of Egg Harbor Township and his sons Tripp, 12, and Dominick, 1, enjoy a beach day on Eighth Street Beach.

Tripp even dove into the ocean.

“I think it’s beautiful outside,” he said. “I wish it was a bit warmer in the water, but other than that it’s nice.”

Friends Derron Gingrich, who owns a home in Ocean City and Lancaster, Pa., And Tanya Smoker, of Lancaster, Pa., Strolled on the beach with Smoker’s dog, Raiya.

Ocean City allows dogs on the beach at certain times starting October 1.

“It’s his first time on the beach. I think she’s doing pretty well, ”Smoker said. “She loves water.”

Gingrich said they came down on Sunday. “The weather was so good, we thought we were going to go downhill. The water is not too cold. I knelt down.

Derron Gingrich, of Ocean City, and his friend, Tanya Smoker, of Lancaster, Pa., Walk Raiya.

DULUTH, Minn. – The Minnesota Free-mo Modelers presented the Midwest’s largest model train exhibit this weekend at the Depot in downtown Duluth.

The organization has set up the model train exhibit in the Great Hall of the Depot, displaying several different engines running on multiple tracks.

Many of the modules on display were handcrafted by band members and designed to form an intricate layout.

“Several times a year this Minnesota Free-mo Modelers group gets together and creates a great layout like the one behind me,” said group member Bob Sterner. “So we have about 20 to 25 modules here. Some are 20 feet long, some are four feet long, some are staged a long time ago, and some are modern. “

The exhibition presented different periods through its architecture and model engines.
Miniature farms, bridges and factories were among the many figures used to make the scene realistic.

“We have different periods on this railroad, so each individual decides for themselves whether they are going to model a modern model – a few years ago – many years ago, and so some of these modules go back to years ago. 1950, ”Sterner said. “Others are basically up to the present day.”

The exhibition was open to train enthusiasts on Saturday and Sunday, inviting people to come and experience the different types of steam engines. The model building group hopes to return next year with the display.

Hot Wheels Unleashed PC Performance Analysis https://cedarlodgewestport.com/hot-wheels-unleashed-pc-performance-analysis/ Sat, 02 Oct 2021 16:57:56 +0000 https://cedarlodgewestport.com/hot-wheels-unleashed-pc-performance-analysis/ Milestone has just released a new arcade racing game, Hot Wheels Unleashed, on PC. Powered by Unreal Engine 4, it’s time to compare it and see how it performs on the PC platform.

Milestone has just released a new arcade racing game, Hot Wheels Unleashed, on PC. Powered by Unreal Engine 4, it’s time to compare it and see how it performs on the PC platform.

For this analysis of PC performance, we used an Intel i9 9900K with 16 GB of DDR4 at 3600Mhz, the Radeon RX580 from AMD, RX Vega 64, RX 6900XT, the GTX690, GTX980Ti, RTX 2080Ti and RTX 3080 from NVIDIA. We also used Windows 10 64-bit, GeForce 472.12 drivers, and Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 21.9.2. NVIDIA has not included any SLI profile for this game, which means our GTX690 performs similarly to a GTX680.

Milestone added some graphics settings to modify. PC gamers can adjust the quality of anti-aliasing, textures, anisotropic filtering, shadows, highlights, ambient occlusion, depth of field, bloom, motion blur, highlights, and particles. The game also has a resolution scale option and supports uncapped frame rates.

Hot Wheels Unleashed does not come with a built-in benchmark tool. As such, we decided to compare the stage of the second round. This step seemed to be one of the most demanding, so it will give you a better idea of ​​how the game will unfold.

Hot Wheels Unleashed does not require a high end processor. At 1080p / Ultra, we were limited by the GPU by our RTX3080. We were also getting between 180 and 200 frames per second. As such, there was no point in simulating and comparing different models of processors. Suffice to say that any modern quad-core processor will be able to run this game without a hitch.

The game also doesn’t require a high-end GPU. With the 1080p / Ultra settings, most of our GPUs were able to run the game at over 60fps at all times. Hell, even our AMD Radeon RX580 was capable of pushing over 60 frames per second.

References GPU Hot Wheels Unleashed-1

At 1440p / Ultra, our top five GPUs had no issues running the game smoothly. As for 4K / Ultra, our RTX2080Ti, RTX3080 and AMD Radeon RX6900XT had no problem.

At this point, we have to note how amazingly fast Hot Wheels Unleashed is on AMD hardware. Although this game uses Unreal Engine 4, it is significantly faster on AMD’s GPUs. For example, the performance gap between the GTX980Ti and the Vega 64 is quite large.

From a graphic point of view, Hot Wheels Unleashed looks great. All of his cars look like these plastic Hot Wheels miniatures. The scenes also look great and there are some pretty cool lighting / reflection effects. The game does not have dynamic lighting or a weather system, which means most of its overall lighting / lighting is pre-baked. And that’s a big plus in our opinion as it makes it look great and runs blazingly fast on a wide range of GPUs. In addition, there are no warping / destroying effects on the car, and its stages are a bit small for today’s standards. Again, though, it’s a bit irrelevant when the game looks this good.

Overall, Hot Wheels Unleashed performs amazingly well on PC. The game does not require a high-end PC system and can run smoothly on a wide range of PC configurations. He also looks great, so kudos to Milestone for not ruining things. Yes, it does not feature any modern techniques like ray tracing or advanced dynamic lighting / weather systems. However, it uses traditional rasterization techniques in order to provide a great overall picture. Not only that, but it displays the appropriate keyboard key prompts (do you hear that KOEI Tecmo?). However, Hot Wheels Unleashed is not a perfect product. The game suffers from some stuttering when a race starts. These stutters, however, are not as frequent or as annoying as the ones we’ve seen in other Unreal Engine 4 games. Other than that, the game is incredibly optimized on PC!

The hunt is on for miniature terrariums hidden around the city for people to take home.

Ben Newell, who runs Worcester Terrariums, has already left two of the mini-gardens around town and plans to hide more

The two have found new homes, with the first foam-filled medicine bottle found within an hour of being hidden near the Diglis Hotel.

Mr Newell said he had “dreaded” the idea of ​​US Instagrammer Isaac Holzapfel also hiding plants around his hometown of Portland, Oregon.

“I thought it was the right thing to do and the response has been totally positive.

“I know if I found a terrarium with a friendly note, I would be really happy.

“They’ve both been placed in the city center so far, but I think I’ll start spreading them out a bit.”

The 30-year-old has been running Worcester Terrariums online from his workshop in the Arboretum since September 2019.

His interest began around 2014 when he ventured into a vegetable garden and became obsessed with plants.

He then switched to bonsai trees and said he naturally progressed from there to terrariums.

As the pandemic forced the country on lockdown, Mr Newell turned to creating online content that attracted large audiences on social media platforms Instagram and TikTok, as well as providing online courses. via Zoom and YouTube tutorials.

So far, nearly 20,000 people have watched the Reel on Hidden Terrariums on its Instagram account which has more than 82,000 followers.

“It went really well but during the pandemic I had three months where I couldn’t access the workshop but I realized that people wanted to learn how to do it.
