Racing maps are lacking in level design.

<!-- SC_OFF -->

I'm the biggest SC apologist here but I just haven't been happy with racing. Don't get me wrong, the gameplay is great but the level design on the race courses could be a lot better. As a car racing enthusiast, I've noticed that the best race courses in Forza or Gran Turismo have a few characteristics. Good variety of curves and challenges, iconic landmarks to help you remember the course, and great way-finding to make it near impossible to get lost or go off track.

In racing in Arena Commander, you're faced with the same 10 floating assets being used over and over. Occasionally there will be arrows to show you where to go but not always. Often I will fly through a gate and literally have no idea where to go with no visual indication in sight. With few original landmarks to go off of, it's easy to lose place. The only real option for learning the course is to forcefully memorize it after playing 30 times or more. This really turns off the new player. Racing has frustrated me way more than it should. I love flying and I love racing so why isn't this more fun?

If I were designing this track, I'd have it much lower with more identifiable obstacles, more integration with the environment, I want to fly through a cave, around a mountain, between two buildings, up through a column of holographic billboards and then through the starting gate. I'd also put a ridiculous amount of way finding signs around every turn. Think a more arial version of the old star wars pod racing track.

Rant over. I still love you CiG.

EDIT: Predictably, this post got downvoted to hell but a big thanks to the awesome people who showed up and posted their thoughts.

Wanting to rent a fishing boat

<!-- SC_OFF -->

Hey, a friend and I are making a mobile trip in a couple weeks! We are super excited to play a little golf and fish. We really don't want to pay charter prices. Any suggestions on where to rent a small fishing boat so we can get out on the water a bit?

TIL the term "oblidisk" is actually derived from a hyper-genericised trademark formed as a portmanteau of Latin "oblido" (to crush) and English "risk" from its secondary use increasing Yalgeth probability, rather than its usual layman's interpretation of "oblique disk".

<!-- SC_OFF -->

I was recently going through some of the new academic material I picked up in a local garage sale and this fun fact jumped out at me. I would've never considered that increasing the P(Y) would have been the initial purpose, rather than general modern uses (allowing for low-to-mid level Teutonic logic, and the various other quality-of-life improvements their ubiquity has created).

It's from "Applied Physics for Multispacial Encabulation" 10th Ed. from 1988 if anyone wants to cross-reference.

Not sure if anyone else on this sub is particularly interested in Etymosemanticology, but it makes for a good mnemonic for remembering one of the oblidisk's major functions in your rig!

What's the cheapest way to acquire current Pokémon anime - Disney XD?

<!-- SC_OFF -->

My daughter wants to start watching Pokémon to go along with her copy of Sun she got for Christmas. Does anyone have suggestions for how to get it on demand?

Not sure if sling orange+ gives me access to the app, but that's the current front runner.

Questions about the Star King

<!-- SC_OFF -->

Since the Star King is canon now, I have questions.

Does anyone have any representations of what he or she looks like? Real opportunity for someone to be the Pepsi of Candlenights here.

Do we pray to the Star King? Or is this purely about presents?

How can I be sure my child is the chosen one? (See question about prayer.)
