  1. [WIP] Re: - INVASIO BARBARORVM III -

    Very soon we'll start previewing things in development. Waiting on something to be approved.
  2. Re: 2017 Nuclear accident ..somewhere in Euroasia

    Rosatom has a good track record overall. The government's inherent secrecy is an issue though, but the Mayak release was actually the result of isotope production for French research.

    I believe...
  3. Re: 2017 Nuclear accident ..somewhere in Euroasia

    Yes it was a gaseous release of Ruthenium-106 from the Mayak reprocessing plant (formerly known as Kyshtym). There's a really good write up of exactly how this happened by Nicholas Thompson:...
  4. Re: New electrothermal energy storage system consisting of volcanic rocks

    Yeah if you have cost-effective energy storage then the only major barrier is the issues with system stability, frequency instability, and declining value as penetration increases with...
  5. Re: New electrothermal energy storage system consisting of volcanic rocks

    It's rare on Earth.
  6. Re: New electrothermal energy storage system consisting of volcanic rocks

    You could get a lot better efficiency out of this using a Helium Brayton Cycle, but the Helium shortage is certainly a major issue right now.
  7. Re: Post-Fukushima Nuclear Plant Shutdown Health and Environmental Impacts

    That was THOROUGHLY debunked. There is no evidence of Leukemia increases caused by Nuclear power plants, the studies you refer to were conducted in Germany and France in 2007-2008 (the KiKK study, by...
  8. Post-Fukushima Nuclear Plant Shutdown Health and Environmental Impacts

    TLDR: An interesting paper showing the human health and environmental impacts of the political decision to shut down nuclear plants after the Fukushima nuclear accident. Unsurprisingly, it has been...

    I am now happy to announce that we are back in business and making some progress. We have partnered with members of the TWC Attila modding community including the Judex Rex team to bring historically...
  10. Re: Roman troops of the Third Century AD

    D'Amato will have the usual mix of B.S. with actually good reconstruction it looks like. I debate with him quite often. We don't get along but we seem to respect each other at least.
  11. [WIP] Re: - INVASIO BARBARORVM III -

    The guys here have been kind of sort of making models on and off but it hasn't really progressed much. None of us have the time to commit.

  21. Re: Server Relaunch and Information Thread

    Yeah it used the factions plugin. If there was the time and interest it would be awesome to see it come back. The way it was run on the 2nd map was more or less perfect.

    The Niederbieber? How does it look Similar?
  24. Re: Roman troops of the Third Century AD

    As I said it's in the Miks book on helmets. Miks concludes that the ridge helmet nasal fragment is unrelated to the Niederbieber helmet fragment.

  26. Re: Roman troops of the Third Century AD

    It's definitely one of his best works. Archaeologist Andrei Negin also had a major hand in the book.

    It will be followed up by a second one that covers from 500 AD to 1453 AD, give or take.
  27. Re: Roman troops of the Third Century AD

    That particular book by D'Amato is actually quite nice but some of his interpretations are problematic. But some are fantastic too.
  28. Re: Roman troops of the Third Century AD

    Actually the latest find of a Niederbieber/Heddernheim/etc. type helmet is from Bulgaria and dates to the late 4th century AD, found alongside a noseguard from a probably separate helmet, most likely...

    Even with a mobile field army, it could be a very slow process to prepare for a campaign. Constantius II's campaign against the Sarmatians took 6 months to prepare for.
