I just got into sim racing. Got a good deal on Logitech g920 and have f gt lite seat coming soon soon. Am playing project cars 2, assetto corsa, and Dirt rally 2.0. Any others into racing? It seems pretty fun but a huge learning curve to drive remotely reasonable and barely getting beyond 3rd gear before crashing unless it's a huge straightaway. Not sure if it's skill or settings.

Recently picked up a G923. Same deal, I'm garbage if any course involves braking and turning. 😂

likefunny

Yes. I think years of playing Mario kart and need for speed etc where i didnt even know there was a brake button

funny

Yeah there is a huge learning curve specially with project cars 2 and dirt. I have a similar setup that I use and from my experience braking and turning in project cars is highly dependent on your downshifts and breaking points. Start with the racing line on, that helps you settle in and go from there. Happy playing.!

Long time casual fan of Gran Turismo on PlayStation, but I have never had the time or space to get a wheel or chair. Which is fine because that doesn’t seem feasible from the living room couch. Have fun!

The playseat challenge is supposed to be pretty portable to fold away and tuck in the corner or in the closet. Many people do exactly that to play on the big screen in their living room then put it away other times vs getting a permanent rig.

Oh yeah big time! Got my fanatec on a foldable chair so it stores easy. Pretty much only play dirt rally 2 and wrc 9. Get your left foot braking down!

I just bought Forza Motorsports 7 since it's on sale and going away. Driving is 100x better. Maybe the settings were better, or more assists on, but i can actually drive these cars. Worth a shot and maybe more forgiving for beginners.

A colleague shared with me the presentation they have prepared for their promotion case. I worked with them on multiple projects during the year and I can clearly see that some of the claims on the deck are wild exaggeration or lies. For example, managed changes in scope for Project X including contract changes. Plot twist: there never was a change of scope for Project X and the contract is exactly the same. How can people be so dishonest? How far can you go before truth catching up?

I feel kind of stuck on current project and feel like I'm underpaid. Any advice or guidance on how to figure it out?

Hey everyone - when is the most appropriate time to alert a firm you are in a relationship with another co-worker? My SO and I are currently the same rank but one of us is up for promotion to manager this year end. I should also mention we are at the same client but on different projects. We currently don’t see this being a huge conflict of interest but perhaps this is naive thinking. We only recently began dating so that’s why we’re are unsure how to best approach. Would appreciate any insight.

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?
