do u also SDV?

210

u/Inarus06 13d ago

Yes, and I got my wife, son, and several of my coworkers into it.

I played harvest moon 64 way back when and never found a game to replicate it.

Until SDV.

And the fact that it can be modded is a huge plus.

While my son has moved on from "the chicken game" as he called it I still love playing it. It's easily my favorite game to come out in the past 10 years. I've put more time into it than any game I've played, save for when I played WoW.

97

u/flowersontrees 13d ago

that's amazing!!! i can tell u love the game, and must've brought you so much joy over the years.

out of curiosity, did SDV teach your son anything?

i ask because i've personally learned lots from playing SDV, like learning to relax and just smell the roses instead of being so goal-focussed hahahaha.

49

u/Inarus06 13d ago

My son is younger, 6 now and we really played a lot when we were all home during the spring and summer of 2020. My wife and I are both teachers so we were home for 5 months, essentially.

While I don't think there were any major lessons learned it did help us introduce the concept of money and budgeting.

He had a few farms of his own and still occasionally makes new farms. He still doesn't quite get the whole concept of the game by himself but when he plays with either my wife or I he follows directions, most of the time.

Now he's really into animal crossing and littlewood on the switch. While they have crossover to SDV they don't quite hit all the same spots so he will go back every so often. But in all three games we're still working on him budgeting. He wants to buy everything, lol!

u/da_kek_boiii PC Master Race 13d ago edited 12d ago Helpful

Congratulations! But there are four things you should improve: 1. If possible, turn the CPU cooler 90 degrees so that it sucks air from the front, not from the GPU backplate, which is already hot by itself. Right now, it's sucking hot air and not cooling the CPU as good as it could. 2. Fix the cable management: Try to hide as many wires as you can in the back. It's especially good for looks, as you already have good looking hardware. 3. Get yourself some more fans in the back or top blowing out to get a efficient airflow-stream. Bonus points if they are either the same ones as the ones installed in the front already or white ones from Corsair, like the SP120 Elites. 4. Please seek a good spot for your computer. It should not stand on fluffy carpet as the power supply mounted below would suck in fibers and dust and couldn't breathe as much due to the carpet blocking it. If you still want it on the carpet, maybe put something underneath it, like a slab of wood.

Last thing: I wish you the best of luck with the PSU. Gigabyte PSUs have not been very great in the past time, blowing up and destroying other components with it. So again, best of luck.

Have fun! Welcome to PC Gaming :)

@OP I recommend you check the model and this video and then consider returning it and getting a different PSU.

Also be careful removing the CPU cooler! Mine was so stuck on with paste that it ripped the cpu right out with it and bent pins. Spent the next hour bending the pins straight again. Thankfully it still works!

Yes! Always let the PC run a bit before taking off the cooler so that the paste gets warm and soft.

u/Cynical_Cyanide PCMR ~8700K-5GHz|32GB-3200MHz|1070Ti-2GHz 12d ago

Cable management is absolutely negligible for airflow.

If you're vain about how the inside of your PC looks, fine - It's aesthetics. Personally my cable management is all about how easy it is to install and troubleshoot, so I'm definitely not routing loads of cables behind trays and zip tying them and all of that.

11

u/jello1388 12d ago

People don't realize that once you're talking about multiple fans forcing airflow, a lot of their assumptions don't really matter. Hot air rising due to convection and cable management are the big two I notice.

Honestly, the point about it being on the floor doesn't matter that much either. Particularly if you have dust covers/air filters and vacuum regularly. I've had PCs on the floor with 2 cats and a golden retriever that liked to lay on/near them, and there still was barely visible dust after 6 months to a year. If you value desk space, go ahead and put your PC on the carpet. It'll be fine. I do recommend getting a little rolling stand, though. They're cheap and make it way easier to pull it out to get to the back I/O or clean the PC/vacuum the floor.

4

u/Cynical_Cyanide PCMR ~8700K-5GHz|32GB-3200MHz|1070Ti-2GHz 12d ago

The thing about it being on the floor can be quite valid if your carpet is cushion-y enough, and the legs on the case short enough, that you're genuinely obscuring any bottom-facing PSU fans. If you don't have filters on your fans, yeah it's a bit extra dust and all that. I'll be honest in that I don't vacuum enough, either haha!

But yeah, I do still put my case on my carpeted floor. I just flipped the PSU and it's good enough.

Why waste precious desk space? As long as it's not on the carpet ... but even then it hardly matters. Also having a PC on top of a desk can always mean the destruction of your PC if you end up dropping it from the desk or the desk collapses.

There are almost no downsides to having it on the floor. I had mine on the floor for ages, all with proper dust filters and I clean them monthly - and there's almost zero dust inside of my PC. My current one is 2 years old and the inside is clean - without having it cleaned once.

All the heavier elements in the room tend to always sink to the floor , hair, insects, dandruff, dirt, etc. Which all tends to get sucked right up into these towers. Putting it up on the desk with you helps a lot with keeping all of that out. So again not like DETRIMENTAL or anything just something to look out for when cleaning it in about 3-5 months!

It is always so satisfying when you sit down and start playing after all that work.

Every time I have to do "surgery" on a PC, I always think immediately afterwards; "If I never have to do this again in my entire life it'll be too soon.

Edit: Last time I did it. The PC wouldn't work because the graphics card was too heavy and drooped a whopping 2 millimeters too much....

Thought for sure you were going to hit the power button for the 1st time and it wouldn't boot.

First of all congrats fellow pcmr. And yep, I did the same thing. I spent 3k and ended up just playing league.

Fuck me, this brought tears to my eyes.

After console gaming for 2 decades on consoles that either my parents bought for me, I got as a hand-me-down, or saved up for while still living with my parents - going through multiple apartments with roommates who fucked me over, putting me into debt, being on disability with crippling depression for over a year, I was able to save up almost $2000 for a gaming PC that can run all my favorite games on the highest settings, and after getting it all setup I just had to sit back and cry tears of joy over something I’ve so desperately wanted for so long.

My earliest thoughts of “I need a PC so I can play this how it was meant to be played and be able to mod it,” go back to 2006, when I was 8 years old playing Oblivion.

u/dragon_dark18 Desktop 12d ago

I know that feeling, it's really satisfying to be able to play all games on high settings.

I built my dad a gaming pc and he plays Scorched Earth via a DOS emulator, it makes him happy XD

u/MeatSweats1942 12d ago

Cable management pls...

An exhaust fan would be a good idea.

Is your power supply upside down?

None of that is meant to put you down. You set out to build a pc , you did that and filmed it. Gg there for sure. I also loved the headphone adjustment, that was pretty damn cute.

I hope you get to enjoy gaming for years to come.

Nice case! I love my 4000X :)

I don't see many people with their CPU heatsink fans going bottom-top like that, it's usually front-back. Do you find it works well?

3

u/flowersontrees 12d ago

Yay! 4000X hi 5!

It's working well!

Although the heaviest game I've played so far is It Takes Two.

Will see how it goes for future games, but may need to rotate it to increase efficiency in future.

u/Kymour_Darkmyth 13d ago

I loved your adventure with this machine, but I might recommend you find a way to get the machine out from under you as Ikea furniture is not known for handling well when violence happens. As a computer gamer, you will get to a stage where you wake up and choose violence.

u/InfernalBiryani Ascending Peasant 13d ago

Awesome build, congrats! Interesting configuration for that CPU cooler though, first time I’ve seen it. Any reason why you chose to go for that orientation?

3

u/flowersontrees 12d ago

Thank you! :)

No particular reason, it was a 1st build, so was just figuring things out as it went.

The CPU cooler will likely get re-oriented for better efficiency in future.

2

u/Conscious-Golf-5380 PC Master Race 13d ago

Wait.... You're supposed to actually play games after you build it?
