Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

  • The Space Sim Megathread | Ground control to Major Tom, lock s-foils in attack position

    For me a good cockpit helps me feel like I'm actually inside a spaceship. With just a hud it feels more like I'm watching a videofeed from a spaceship that I'm controlling remotely, which isn't nearly as exciting.

    Hahaha, that fucking devil in the first panel

    Her design--or really the look from her glasses--makes her seem like she escaped from Awkward Zombie, and I really enjoy her.

    I see a connection of the energy from the weapons to the energy of the wielder. I wonder if it is just the creation energy connection or actually a connection to the wielder him/herself.

    I think it could be both. My first thought was that it was how they created the keys/weapons, with their minds and stuff.

    I know this is late, but thank you for this. I don't normally change back into my regular clothes after work, but I think for an interview I might go ahead and do it. As for technical stuff, I know the basics of some things but no or few specifics. I think it's time to do some research today since someone I work with knows someone in Ops and they gave me 2GB of their training files, including stuff on all the plant systems.

    I definitely recommend studying some material - try not to get overwhelmed though. There is only so much you can learn in one day, and I'm sure that training material gets super specific.

    Also they are probably looking for someone with the right mentality rather than the "smartest" people they can find. I know this is valid at least for my company. Conservative approach to work.... put equipment in a safe state and backout if something seems unsafe.... strict procedural compliance (but not "maliciously compliant" if the procedure seems wrong), that sort of stuff. I'm sure you must be familiar with a lot of this type of stuff anyways since you already work there. Having the radiation knowledge is a big plus.

    If you ever supervised people, even in a "step-up" role (thats how we call it with my company) where you are just in that role for coverage, I would try to use examples from those situations when you answer behavioural questions.

    edit: another thing you can learn is just a simplified "how does electricity get from the plant to a house, or even an electrical outlet in a home?"

    Oh I know I'm not going to be able to do more than learn about the basics of how stuff works, but I figure if I can show that I know a little and am willing and able to learn more than that will count for something. And yeah, the conservative decision-making process is a big thing here. I used to joke about how awful it was that they're always harping about safety and stopping to take time out and check and recheck your work and get someone else to check it for you with a fresh pair of eyes, but it's what they're all about out here and it makes sense. Don't want people to not take their job seriously and end up getting seriously hurt.

    Having a questioning attitude is a huge thing too. When they ask you a technical question, try to ask clarifying questions to get a better idea about it. Obviously don't be dumb about it, but having a questioning attitude is a huge thing.

    That's another "buzzword" you are probably already familiar with

    Oh yeah, questioning attitude and human performance tools and all those other buzzwords. Gonna drink that kool-aid all day long if it'll get me this job
