Welcome to the new SK forums! We recently upgraded to 4.0 and may you have noticed a few major style changes. To suit as many tastes as possible we have four themes to select from - SK Default (the current), SK Dark (a dark version of this theme), as well as Light Non Transparent and Dark Non Transparent for those of you who prefer completely solid forums. There is a theme selector at the bottom of the forums.

The two SK themes come with 5 different backgrounds you can choose from by clicking the paintbrush icons.

If you encounter any issues or technical errors please PM Mikey.

  1. In Celebration of Frankenstein

    its a lot simpler than it looks. Its not that hard imo to pick up the basics and get started, but it has the problem of just throwing everything at you at once with very poor explanation.
  2. Racing!! in Space Engineers

    I can be around and I'm up for racing.
  3. PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUND

    We'll be playing tonight if anyone who has it is interested. I can also broadcast over steam if someone wants to take a look what the game is like.
  4. PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUND

    Never played h1z1 so I'm not sure.
  5. PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUND

    This game is actually quite a good bit of fun, everything we had wanted out of Arma basically. I still love arma as a game, but damned if I can find a server up that isn't Altis life Basically you parachute over an island with up to 100 other people (either solo or in squads of up to 4 people). There you can explore houses and shit to find gear and weapons as you fight your way towards the center of the map, ambushing people (or in my case being ambushed :P) to be the last team standing.
  6. Free game

    You have to make a Humble Bundle account and link your steam profile (so they know where to send the game) if you don't have one, but thats it. Rising Storm is the pacific theatre version of the Red Orchestra games. It was released in 2013, so four years ago, which I think is a good mix of the graphics and gameplay not being very outdated, but the playability on modern machines much more assured for everyone here. If you like FPS or are interested in the genre, I highly recommend it, and we will probably be hosting some game nights and maybe house competitions with it.
  7. Town of Salem tonight

    We're going to be playing some Town of Salem later tonight, if anyone else is interested. Town of Salem is basically another re-skinned version of mafia/werewolves/etc. This one is available free in the browser (or for 5$ on steam, don't know why you'd pay for it though). Games usually take maybe 20 minutes to complete. We'll be talking on discord if you want to join us later.
  8. SK mafia!

    Its tough. Having a discord room and chat helps, but it moves too fast imo for people to keep up with in a casual game. I think forums are good for having a game that goes over days, with people coming to make their posts and cast their votes whenever they get on throughout the day. Discord would be better for a more traditional RL game of mafia where we do it all in one sitting. I would say stick with forums for the SK mafia, (and post it in the Blackhorse Pub for non-SK folks, sometimes they join), and just have some mafia or Town of Salem nights on discord.
  9. The Castle of SK

    This sand castle has more infrastructure than our alliance lul
  10. Gaming Rig(s)

    The ultimate gaming PC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTGMG2qUMjU
  11. GoT Spin-offs Confirmed

    I'm still waiting for the launch of the new coffee and pastry shop franchise, Game of Scones.
  12. Recurring Game Night

    Wonderful enthusiasm thus far What do people think of sunday evenings as a possability? I throw it out there cuz I figure if anyone is going to be out and about its probably going to be a friday or saturday night, and my own availability those times is fairly spotty.
  13. Recurring Game Night

    I think we should setup something of a recurring game night. We find a night, or nights, where a lot of us are usually online and available, and we just set that as an SK game night. The games themselves can be chosen the day of, though I imagine a lot of rocket league, town of salem and overwatch (in terms of what we have in common). Obviously we'll keep doing pick up games and me bugging people to play with me on discord all the time, but i think having a set time that we know will happen will lead to more actual playing, and fewer threads that never lead anywhere lol. To that end, I'd say post your ideas for when we should do it (and when you'd be available in interested), I'll pick times based on whatever is most common here. Feel free to also suggest any games for it, ideally free, cheap, or something several of us already have.
  14. Whoops I forgot to post something yesterday Every year March 17th sparks a bout of drunken reverently across the world, partly because of St Patrick day but mostly because its the day SK was founded. As of the 17th this year, SK is now six years old! Thats even older than the average age of the government! Truly a grand milestone for us all.
  15. So the humble bundle is having an arma bundle right now. 1$ gets Arma1 + expansions, 7-8 (beating the "average" as of when I checked) gets arma2, but most importantly paying 15$ gets Arma3 (and the karts DLC which is kind of useless). I know a few of us already have arma, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in military sims or joining us faffing about on public servers and getting mowed down
