    Soon we will be at the pinnacle of a sad day. This website, domesticbatterygaming.com, has been our home for 6 years. This website has seen crew members laugh, love, fight, and cry over the years. Hours, upon hours have been spent here my myself, and many others to "get our XDBX fix". The choice to move our website to a more public venue, did not come easily. But I do not see how to keep this website running with the cost of it continually on the rise. And it's not fair to ask a few members that have donated to the site, to continue to donate to keep this site alive. It may a long time before we start getting more member back into our ranks. With R* newest GTA title still a year or more away. So to keep this family together, the decision has been made to plant our roots elsewhere. We will not lose the information that this crew has gathered over the years, but we will be losing our home. For that, I am sad. Our future as a crew will continue on. And we will be calling a new site home from now on. But I will not forget this site. Our home. The official website and forum of Domestic Battery.

    Unfortunatly with the growing crisis I must block all vistors from China to RSCnet and are considering a quarentine of all EU members in a closed crew area. This will include UK members though they will probably choose to be in their own quartinied area away from the rest of the EU. Also I will be diverting $2 into a stimulas package to keep everyone entertained while browsing their allowed areas.

    Underneath all that wet stuff that covers half the map is another world to explore and I've been doing that lately. Obviously this is not news to any of you, we all explores various wrecks when looking for spaceship parts in story mode but it can be fun and relaxing even when there is nothing to gain. Maybe that is why it is relaxing. Unfortunately, we can't take photos with the phone underwater and while logging the wrecks I didn't want to go to the trouble of using the editor, at least this time. Editor will make some much better photos and maybe that is something for a future crew activity. This was just about marking the location and getting a basic photo of the wreck. I gave each wreck a basic name to help identify them too. East coast tug wreck. Giant Tank and Wreckage Large truck wreck Paleto Bay airliner wreck Northeast Tug wreck Flying Saucer wreck Nuclear Submarine wreck Large exploration sub wreck More to come soon.

    Olla has been wanting to join the crew for a while now, and joined TNT a few weeks ago where I believe he done quite well. He does his best to play fair, and I'm always playing when he is and guide him to be a clean player. He likes racing and arena wars, and asks frequently to play RvI. He might not be able to join the crew (not counting myself) once a week, but he will join on a regular basis and enough to be an active member. He won't be involved or be able to hear chat, so any language etc won't be an issue. When he's older I'll allow him to join in chat, but until then anything he says or needs to be told will go through me. There will be exceptions, but they'll be my responsibility so nobody needs to be conscious of what they're saying when he joins. With games being heavily focused around online multiplayer, I want Olla as a future gamer to be a part of this crew where he'll have a family of skilled and ethical gaming mentors. Before joining XDBX I'd been a part of a few gaming communities, but XDBX was my first and only GTA crew. Despite my time away from the crew, I know this is the right place for me, and the right place for my son to learn how to be a respectable gamer in an online community, as well as having the right people to build his skills as the next generation of gamer, and of XDBX.

    So here in Denmark we have a few traditions for turning 25 and 30 while being unmarried. At 25 it's pretty simple, you get a cinnamon shower. At 30 it's peber accompained by... let's say an artistic piece planted outside the house. It's most common with painted oil barrels (sometimes filled with cememt if your friends are real dicks) and then leave the birthday boy with the headache of having to get the shit removed . But it can also be other stuff. Last week I turned 30 and got this: Thankfully I live to rent so they showed kindness and gave me this small piece easy to remove again. Today we're a celebrating a mate and since he has his own property the same kindness was not shown. A 12 meter wreck of a trailer with the hitch removed. And his birthday is first Tuesday so we are not done yet! Gonna look like a trailer park when we are done. So what weird traditions do you have in your neck of the woods?

    Hi everyone. I'd like to rejoin the crew please. I never expected to be playing GTA again, but since my son saved up to buy himself a PS4 he's had me playing it with him. Now I'm missing the time I spent playing with all the great people here and would like to rejoin. I won't be able to take part in as many events as I used to, but will join in whenever I get the chance and be active on the website. I'm familiar with the crew policies and the vetting process, and am happy to be revetted. I look forward to gaming with you all again soon

    My name is Thomas, I'm ninteen years old (1,5 week twenty :)) and I'm living in a quiet town in the Netherlands. Some people might know me from the Sunday Racing League I'm currently performing in or from some of the COTC battles I played. I've been in the crew DDNL for almost 4 years now, I had some great moments there but unfortunately DDNL is as good as dead as there are only a few active players left. So this is why I want to join Domestic Battery, my experience with this crew is very positive, and I want a active crew so my GTA experience will become better (and maybe RDR Online). The most exciting thing about joining here must be participating in crew events as I always loved stuff like that. If you guys accept me in the crew I will immediately turn the crew active. Some other stuff I like is Trophy Hunting on other games occasionally, listening to some great music and a lot of working. My time zone is GMT +2. Any more questions just ask me :)

    Meet Lime Green. Lime knows nothing about football, except for one thing. That he wants to become the most legendary manager the game has ever seen. But, as you can see from these stats, that won't be the quickest or easiest of objectives. He has no coaching qualifications, the lowest attributes you could possibly have, the bare minimum playing experience (one accidental appearance for his local pub's Sunday league team while he was walking his dog), and he's only 20 years old, so it'll be a task to command any kind of respect. This is FM hard mode. However, Lime is determined, and applied for every managerial job...in the world. It was a long and arduous job search, mostly because the processing time when you have every league in the game loaded is glacially slow. But eventually one club was stupid enough to actually offer Lime a job. Skovde AIK is located in south-central Sweden, situated between the two largest lakes in the country, and are @Lann's favourite team. Probably. They are a semi-professional team playing in the third (I think) tier of Swedish football, and are celebrating their centenary, so there's a guaranteed party at the end of the season no matter where we place. The board want a mid-table finish for this season, with the league table looking like this when Lime joined. Right on course with less than half the season left. Lime couldn't possibly mess this up, right? Just a few words on how I play the game, especially in a save like this. No save-scumming. That just cheapens any glory you achieve, and honestly, when you have a database this large loaded, it would just take too long to keep re-loading if you lose a game. Any players I sign are found by my scouts, so no searching for Brazilian wonderkids. If I want any of those I'll have to actually send a scout to Brazil and hope that they can find some themselves. I also don't download any pre-made tactics/formations/set-pieces. Everything about the way my teams play is set by me based on the players I have, rather than just forcing my team into playing a gegenpress style because it's op. That's about it for now. There are 12 games left in this season, and we're still in the cup, so hopefully Lime can make an impression right away and earn himself some meatballs and a flat-pack wardrobe.

    Hello All.... Though I'd share my hobby with you all, as some of you may find it interesting. A few months ago I found my old collection of Matchbox cars from when I was a lad, around 25 years ago. Most of which were play worn and missing any bits of paint. After watching a few guys on youtube, I set about restoring some. After the varying success of my efforts, I bvranched out into buying knackered cars and restoring them as a little weekend hobby. Then after a bit of shopping with my son, I purchased a few Hot wheels cars, and now my son and I collect Hot Wheels together. We don;t want full sets, but we just buy what we like. Which makes today a special day, as it's 'Hot Wheels Friday'. I have a youtube channel for my restorations, I try to put out a video a week, but that is subject to how busy I am at a weekend!! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSj7Ft27_NW26QrUvyifKXA I'll update this thread as and when I buy anything new, or do a new restoration. Anywho, here are a few examples of my restorations, I'll put a few in the open, then the rest in a spoiler. Vans Racing/Xero Gas Liveried Jeep Cherokee: Corgi Rover 2000 I restored: Before: After: Mine and my sons first Hot wheels purchase:

    Some useful advice I’ve just been sent, might need reformatting to be easier to read. I don’t mind if someone with mod access clears it up, it’s not easy on mobile. The new Coronavirus may not show sign of infection for many days. How can one know if he/she is infected? By the time they have fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lung is usually 50% Fibrosis and it's too late. Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning. Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no Fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicates no infection. In critical time, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air. Serious excellent advice by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases: Everyone should ensure: — your mouth & throat are moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the virus. If you don't drink enough water more regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs. That's very dangerous. IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - CORONAVIRUS 1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold 2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose. 3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the Sun. 4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne. 5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap. 6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it. 7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice. 8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on. 9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice. 10. Can't emphasis enough - drink plenty of water! THE SYMPTOMS 1. It will first infect the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days 2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further. 3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing. 4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention.

    There’s a lot of brave members here who think they’re immune to catching this. When I read those opinions, there’s a small evil part of me that wants to see you catch it IF you’re going to ignore any precautions. Go ahead. Learn something the hard way. Edited: That sounded real cynical of me. I don’t want anyone to catch it even if they’re stupid enough to say “I hope I catch it.” (This ret*rded sh*t was really said in this forum) I’m not going to change anyone’s mind on this if they really want to contract this virus. Just think about it though. You may avoid catching this completely while thinking so boldly that you’re impervious to it’s symptoms. Amen if that’s the case. But now is the time to take notes. This sh*t is killing people. You MAY be young and tough enough to sweat this out, but you’re going to get a family member killed with that bravado. If you catch this, your family is going to be worried sick about you. They may even endanger themselves to take care of you. Don’t do that to them. If you take anything away from this rant, just remember.. WHEN you say you hope you catch this, Joe Miller in Texas thinks you’re a f*cking ret*rd. 👍 I should add that the virus is here in my city. It’s at our local hospital 2 miles away. My wife is 14 weeks pregnant today. You do the math. I’m allowed to be paranoid about this.

    I think the person who's playing this real life game of plague inc. should've made sure everyone in the world was infected before developing symptoms. They've pretty much lost now, no way it's going to spread to Greenland and Madagascar before they close their ports. Also the middle east is a better starting area than China. Amateur.

    Since both my mum and my best friend are in high risk groups, it is difficult not to take it personally when others thoughtlessly talk about the old or unwell like they're a literal millstone around our necks. Anger at the decisions made by a very small number of powerful people is understandable. Wanting to see millions or billions of largely innocent people die is not a particularly logical response to that anger however. Do you really think the super-rich and the powerful are going to be included in your biological purge? This isn't the 14th century, and it's easier to survive a well publicised outbreak if you can hop on a private jet to some remote island compound. @Protocawl If God didn't want us to copy Him, He should have done a better job to begin with. Also I like being able to disagree with you from 2000km away, please don't go and join the Amish.

    I'd like to let you all know that the website Domestic Battery uses is going to be merged into RSCnet. This means all the posts and members from our crew site will be on this site. All our private forums will be inour crew area, public forums will be accessible to all as they are on the XDBX site. This is planned to occur in March or April. One question that might come up before then is how staffing will work with the XDBX staff coming here and @JuniorChubb and @doubleg213 being staff here. Simple answer is the current XDBX staff will still be staff in our crew area, website staff will be mutli crew, there may or may not be an XDBX Admin or Moderator, or these spots may be filled by folks from other crews as needed so don't be thinking XDBX is coming here and taking over which isn't the case. There are other changes in the pipeline, with the merger I will be able to focus on one website and will be working to make this the go to spot for R* and other games and crews

    In the southern part of Sweden, in the countryside, its not uncommon to see stands like this with vegetables and strawberries. The thing i admire is that there is noone there, just a jar to put money in (and a number to send money with your phone). I like it because its great to see trust and honesty being the basic assumption on strangers.

    I had quite a weird, bit funny but also exhausting encounter today. A level 300 something try-hard followed me out of a Public Enemy match and shot me dead while I was minding my own business. We exchanged kills for a while before I got him 3 times in a row and saw the opportunity of leaving him pissed off. I went to my nearby camp and sure enough this guy was PISSED. Roaming around my camp, one minute trying to lure me out the other trying to shoot me. Just not letting it go. After a while I finally broke and went out for round 2. Same thing as before. Got the upper hand and went back to the camp. Done. Went AFK to get some food and from the kitchen I could hear constant shooting. Must have been going on for 10 minutes. Then suddenly I hear my character getting hit and finally killed. How the fuck is that possibly? Was sitting in a chair so he couldn't have pushed my character out of the camp. Unfortunately managed to screw up the save but my theory is that he might have went so far away that it messed with the camp protecting. I hurry in and pick up the controller but too late and he kills me again. Okay, we're doing this. Funnily enough 3rd round doesn't go any better for him and this time he's the one that ends up leaving. Shortly after I get a friend request and a pm from him. Thinking it's probably just so he can get a rematch and that he wants to say a few words about my mother. But no, he wants to recruit me to his posse. Apparently, he just went after me because he thought I was a good shooter and wanted to see my play style in a 1v1. Direct quote, "U shoot good son". Fucking hell... the fucker could just have asked me for a 1v1 instead of shooting me in the back and stalking me. I feel bad for the girls he's gonna try and pick up once he gets old enough. I'm gonna play along for a bit, though, because I really want to know how he manged to kill me in my camp while the white flag was up. So, do you have any stories for the camp fire?
