Playing Battlefield 1942, a game that has been part of every PC build I have ever had since its release in 2002.  One of the maps was Coral Sea, which consisted of two opposing aircraft carriers, and a bunch of aircraft.  Designed as a dog-fighting map, people decided to try and land on the enemy aircraft and mine the runway, set explosives, shoot people waiting for planes etc*.  There was a growing demand on the Xtra Coral Sea server to counter this, so I made a small mod that introduced a 'death bubble' around each carrier, causing continuous injury/death to anyone attempting to land on the enemy carrier.  The admins then applied this mod to the Xtra server

 

Needless to say, not everyone was impressed by this...

 

(Mild NSFW language)

 

 

* I fully admit to being one of these mine-laying, explosive-setting people as well :)

Anyway.....  not what I was expecting to find in Unturned - used to opening these crates and finding them full of guns and ammo to waste the unturned hordes.... not fish.

Dont take screenshots much but was pretty proud of this. 3rd game in on PUBG... spent whole time pretty much out running the wall. Took a guy out on the way which surprised me as all I had was a shotgun. Got his automatic rifle and some ammo, jumped back to keep in front of wall and made it to the final 5,4,3 and 2. Me and one other.

 

Heard him driving around so kept an eye on him behind a tree and he hoped out of his car..  once he saw me. Good ole shoot out and i came out the winner....

Having neither Windows nor an X Box, I'll have to watch from the sidelines.

Old screenshot from when Skyrim came out.

 

Struck a very cool bug when on fast-travel to another town, every single corpse I'd resurrected using necromancy thus far decided to turn up to battle me.

 

Not shown in the screenshot was a dragon that also appeared, was quite fun actually

Not long after I started playing Elite: Dangerous a few years ago, I came across this system with 18 stars in it:

 

 

It was quite the sight to behold.

 

Thanks for the giveaway and good luck to all :)

Elite Dangerous is too much fun, especially in VR.
