  1. (at least for me) New PC with SSD Hard drive : Maniacally modded the game for more than 1 year, to prevent any gamebreaking combos and encourage maximum party building diversity : Wife and daughters far away at grandparents' for vacatations while I'm working at home (at least during week daytime ) : New party built for the occasion : (expect a bit of Balance Polishing Mod self-promotion here, since some of the choice below are justified by it) - Main Character as a SC Enchanter - Beguiler / Helwalker - Kind Wayfarer / Mage Slayer - SC Stalker with bear - Priest of Wael / Psion The past year has been complicated on a personal level. Not really sad but often stressful. Now it's time to relax. Just reached Neketaka

  5. Distracting myself with getting back on the crafty times train... London Comic-Con is back in the real-world come October, so re-working some elements, repairing, and trying a few fresh things out. Printing, Sanding, Priming... Putting that base paint layer... Then bringing out some of the details... Actually thinking I might try using the solid waist/ab pieces of the armour to make silicon mold, and try creating some semi-rigid rubber versions just to make it easier to bend/sit down in. Although I have no idea of what that would involve or added costs. Possibly some time to research.

  7. I have three friend is various unions (plumber, electrical, brick layer) and not a single one are there for the "political affiliation". They are there for the job security, ridiculously high pay, and great benefits. The down side to unions is their prices are x2/x3 of non-union companies, so naturally customers in need of those services gravitate toward the more economical options. They also like to protest in front of non-union business with a giant inflatable rat, which always makes me lol hard.

  10. Surprised that any personal benefits they can get from the union would not outstrip any loyalty they have for their political party.

  11. I'll never understand why workers in the US don't want.....worker rights. These protests won't amount to anything in the long run unless they actually unionize. There is way too much exploitation of people going around in the video game industry, and elsewhere. https://kotaku.com/inside-blizzard-developers-infamous-bill-cosby-suite-1847378762

  12. If Mike and Rich were still watching it to torture themselves purely for my entertainment, I'd be celebrating right now, but sadly they gave up and so now I'm mad they'd greenlight such a large amount of flaming crap all at once, .

  15. I've been goofing about in the StarCrawlers: Chimera alpha. Still really rough around the edges, and I'm hoping they won't keep the auto-heal button in the game. When you press space, turns fly by, and you have auto-healing, so when you're down on health, instead of using your consumables or anything you just stand there and wait for a spell. Well, and press space. I sure hope that won't end in a time limit. I could get behind patrols showing up eventually, or something though. Still an alpha, after all. Not liking the Force Psyker changes so far.

  16. Even then, they had a decent setup and potential (and in the case of Voyager, it stayed mostly unrealized). Discovery and Picard are utterly devoid of that. There is nothing, absolutely nothing you can do with these. The only time Discovery got any fun as a show was when they had mirror universe episodes, and that was mostly because they threw everything out and told the actors to have fun and chew the scenery in best Shatnarian tradition. It sure wasn't Star Trek, but it was fun to watch - unlike the DS9 mirror universe episodes that I generally found very annoying. Picard's entire premise is as dumb as Jar Jar Abram's opening narration of Star Trek 2009. No, the Romulan sun going supernova will not threaten the entire galaxy you hack, and no, Mr. Dreckzman, it will not cause a refugee crisis later that will threaten to undermine - or has undermined - the values of the Federation. It will cause a crisis for the Romulans, of course, but eh, other than that? Nobody's willing to take in refugees? And that's just the premise, never mind the presence of Mass Effect style mechanical reaper beings that look like Mecha-Cthulu and regularily cull organics when called upon by repressed AIs some 30 years after "The Measure of a Man". Man, how I wish I didn't make this up.

  17. I faced Dorudugan this weekend, with a quite standard party, without any cheese involved (BDD + Brilliant + SoT doesn't work with my mod anyway). Without a Cipher, with ressource-limited casters, etc. Everybody glouped a Potion of Enlightenment. It was satisfying to have my SC Druid casting Pollen Patch every 30s or having my Rogue able to flee after magnetic overdrive without fearing ressource depletion. Really kept all party members relevant. Satisfying experience. Dorudugan is still a hard and technical fight. It still lasts arguably for too long. But overall, it was an epic fight. What Megabosses are intended to be (not some sort of party forcing conundrum or slow death by attrition).

  19. There we go, some internal padding (foam and windowseal ), veil mesh across the eyeholes. In fact, when wearing the basic black balaclava and neck seal under it, with the padding installed the rear half pretty much sticks to my head anyway so I probably won't bother giving it a forehead strap.

  20. Wrapping up some of those final details (with some minor smears left over...) Have to admit, since the hood of the Sith robe will be up most of the time, I haven't been quite as serious as smoothing out the print of the rear half of the helmet. Put in some magnets on the inside to clip both parts together. Planning to fold some black veil mesh across the eye areas, some interior padding, and then a strap for the rear half. Hopefully it means I'll put the rear half on, and then just be able to pull the front half off whenever I want to drink/eat. Plus the magnets help guide it back to the proper place when re-attaching.

  23. John de Lancie as Q is a great example of an actor spinning gold out of what should be a stupid idea. Same for Ian McDiarmid in the SW prequels playing Palpatine perfectly pantomime. You could get more or less the same stuff happening without the modern day shoehorning though, and it would likely be better with a more well thought out, organic and internally consistent explanation. I have to admit that I've blotted out most of Picard especially the final episodes (and despite not hating the lead episodes), but things like the hermit refugee Romulans turning up at a random planet with more ships than they ever seemed to have in any other ST would work a lot better if they weren't impoverished refugee hermits.
