I feel like my citys buildings are more tightly packed than in this screenshot. Is there perhaps a mod that makes building have a bit more space between them? Or some zoning rule that makes buildings a bit more spread out?

no mods yet. actually just started playing the game.


Hello, I have just received an Alienware 17 R4, and noticed that Tobii Eye Tracking is not letting the computer go to sleep. The Tobii options (turn lights off, or turn screen off if you're not looking at the PC) are on, but aren't working either. I have downloaded and installed the latest Tobii drivers, to no avail, and I also tried using some older ones, but don't seem to work either. Any ideas?

Hey matey. So you e doubled checked your settings and set it to how many minutes to turn off display? Also does your screen dim?

yes I had checked it, and had set it to 1 minute to test it and it never did...also it didn't dim...but yesterday I managed to update to Spring Update and it's fine ever since

In my experience, tobii has been very hit or miss and updates to tobii or windows can make it work flawlessly or cause it to be completely useless and anything in between. I would recommend switching tobii off when you're not using it, there's an option to do so in the bottom right icon tray. If you're using it most or all of the time you're going to be pretty on your own as neither tobii nor microsoft nor dell has had any clue why it acts so sporadic. All I can really suggest in the meantime is to wait for a seemingly unrelated update to fix your problem and then avoid updating ever again.

That's exactly what happened...As soon as I updated to Spring Update, it got let's see if I can find why the laptop turns off even though I have set it not to...


What I mean by "behaves": Windows Photo Viewer has some very nifty features.

  • It loops. So say you have 5 photos in a folder, it won't stop at the 5th (as Photos does) but will loop back to the 1st

  • Respects your chosen sort method. So I have my photos sorted by filetype. Photos doesn't care about it, and mixes png's with jpg's etc, only sorting them by name. On the other hand Windows Photo Viewer first cycles through all of the jpeg's and then moves on to the png's and so on.

I would be using Windows Photo Viewer extensively, but I like Photos modern design, the arrows at the edge of the screen for previous/next, and the quick photo editing capabilities.

Can anyone suggest an app/program that combines all of those features?

Man so a while back Samsung had this "change everything" app called "good lock" and it would completely change the UI of a Samsung phone and it was amazing and seriously dope. But there was one controversial-and-optional part of the app; the recents app. To me it looked amazing and made MUCH functional more sense than the (imo idiotic) rolodex look

bit unrelated, but that "Keep" tab on the notification drawer was the shit. I don't want to "snooze" notifications for a predefined amount of time, I want to shove them to the right and open them if I feel like it!

Gboard only has long press for special characters. I'm looking for one with swipe for special characters. I like Gboard but for me long press is slower than swiping on the letter

I think you can swipe from "123" key to the symbol you want...if not, use Chrooma which is based on Gboard and adds this, and some other features

I've been looking for ages for something that works and finally found these 2 Android screen recording apps with internal audio support.

see more

you don't even need Mobizen app, just use the preinstalled "Game Launcher" to record (with internal sound), screenshot, etc. Samsung "bloat" ftw

I guess I missed this one, right?

I think musicolet? Might just be album or play list though

wtf...this is a pretty much perfect app with unique features...why do I never see it in "best music app" threads?

Removable and waterproof don't play nice together

Galaxy S5 tho..

Working on S6 too!!! (kinda laggy and has some memory leaks and other bugs but I'm not complaining)

Comment deleted5 months ago

Yes it does. Have you set everything up as described in the post's recommended settings?

Swipe, mainly because it has an actual image viewer instead of the Facebook mobile crap that the others use

S6. Faster and better than when it was new. Battery hasn't aged badly either

agree on all three. problem is, the battery was always bad, so it couldn't become much worse lol

Sony Ericsson T68i, some Nokias and a Samsung slider phone were childhood dreams that never materialized

Phonograph when they moved folder playing to the Pro tier.

Still trying to find a good replacement :(

I mostly use Shuttle+ now, and sometimes Rocket Player, when I want lockscreen controls and playing music over other apps' sounds


Would this be possible, so I don't have to download another file manager?


I remember when iphone first came out people on slashdot were calling it a failure because folks at the time wanted better keyboards not a touch device. I don't like the X yet but I get where it's going: continued obfuscation of the line between device and reality. It gets you closer and closer to being able to execute tasks as fast as you can think. In a few years, the concept of carrying large rectangles in our pocket itself is going to seem dated.

see more

my problem with your vision is that these large rectangles are actually fun! eg No matter how far away in the future we'll be, a 6-hour ride to another city/planet is still going to take 6 hours, and you'll still want a screen and a control mechanism to play games, or watch movies etc. That's the reason why I think phones will definitely be around in this form factor for years to come.


It may be a little but random but could it work? Or are there problems eg wavelength etc

Heh, yeah, I thought of that, but decided to focus on whether it is actually possible, nevermind the ridiculousness factor :P

You do know tvs have their own remotes you can use, right?

Original Poster6 points · 7 months ago

yeah, but just in case it isn't accessible or just to fuck around!

if you have a Samsung, open Game Launcher, and add the app you want to record as a "game app" will show a little orange button when using the app, which lets you do things such as screenshot, and yes, record the internal sound.

imagine how great it will be in 2 years when the battery degrades below 80 percent

your flair indicates that you, like me, don't even have to imagine!

I like that the camera does a slight zoom-out just as they climb on top of the other cars, as if doing a second take, saying wtf you seeing this shit
