Is it difficult? Well, it’s as difficult as you want it to be. Making the controls complex is an easy way to make the game more engaging. Personally, I think the most difficult aspect is parking. When delivering cargo there will be three options. The hardest option yields the most experience, and will ask players to pull some fancy backing up and maneuvering in order to place the trailer where it needs to go. The second option is much more achievable, while the third option is to skip it entirely and earn no bonus experience. It’s a great to be able to say “you know what? I really don’t feel like parking this explosive gas tank right now.”

Another exponent of the proud fan tradition of fixing wonderful western RPGs rushed to release by their publishers, Bloodlines’ nofficial patch represents 10 years of post-release support. Most of it’s been led by analytical chemist Werner Spahl, who has not only cleaned up glitches but dredged up half-finished quests, weapons and characters – eventually reinstating whole levels and recruiting fellow fans to record new voices. The game has been so utterly transformed under his direction that there are now two versions of the patch available: a basic version that sorts technical issues, and a ‘plus’ mod.
During an earlier proceeding, Barbier heard from six experts who presented varying estimates of the size of the spill, ranging from as little as 2.4 million barrels to as many as 6 million barrels (see table below). “BP and the United States also presented competing theories of how the rate of discharge changed over the course of the spill,” Barbier wrote. “The evidence … was voluminous, dense, highly technical, and conflicting. … Both sides … mounted effective attacks on the other’s calculations.” They disputed, for instance, just how big the underground reservoir of oil was at the start of the spill, how much pressure it was under, and the permeability and “compressiblity” the surrounding rock layers.
“Currencies today operate with two decimal spaces to the right ($1.00). In bitcoin, there are currently eight so one could theoretically pay you 0.00000001 or one hundred-millionth of a bitcoin. Not only is this confusing for consumers, it does not fit in existing systems and software for accounting practices.”
Politically, Europe is a continent of nation-states. But thanks to deep integration, the European economy is really one of regions where national averages can obscure more than they reveal. This map of unemployment rates coded by sub-national region shows how Europe really works. The strong German economy is really a case of a red-hot south Germany region that extends into adjacent areas of Austria, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic as much as it does into northwestern Germany. Meanwhile, the economy of the former East Germany looks a lot like the economy of Poland. Southern Italy is like Spain, Portugal, or Greece, but Northern Italy is more like France — so on average Italy shows up as an in-between case. The Francophone parts of Belgium have France-like economic conditions, while the Dutch-speaking parts in the north have conditions closer to those in the Netherlands. Transnational economic areas happen all over the world, of course, but the deep and purposeful economic ties European nations have forged with one another since the end of World War II make them an especially prominent aspect of the European experience.
The code above calls two endpoints associated with Blockchain.info’s Market Prices and Exchanges Rates API. The first endpoint allows us perform the actual currency conversion for the currency and amount supplied by the user. The second endpoint provides real-time currency conversion information, such as the current buy and sell prices and 15-minute average price. We can use this to display more information to the user about the state of the market in their chosen currency:
One of two things are usually the case if a game has “Simulator” in its title. Either it’s an overly earnest attempt to provide accurate simulation, or it’s a joke. Euro Truck Simulator 2 is something of a rarity. It’s the former, sure, but avoids the usual trap of being buggy, obtuse and transparent in its limitations. It’s good. You’re probably sick of people saying its good, but by all logic it shouldn’t be, so it bears repeating.
“I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London – he actually said it was below the belt. Apart from the fact that there are stupid gay people as well as stupid other people, it suggests that maybe you can’t let it have so many meanings – you have to be direct. In fact, I’m still in two minds as to whether it’s a good idea to write songs that aren’t in the first person, to take on other characters. The singer in Money for Nothing is a real ignoramus, hard hat mentality – somebody who sees everything in financial terms. I mean, this guy has a grudging respect for rock stars. He sees it in terms of, well, that’s not working and yet the guy’s rich: that’s a good scam. He isn’t sneering.”
