Star Wars / The saga comes to an end

Have to admit I came a little bit. I'm hoping they come up with something really good to actually tie all 9 movies together.

Mafias and RPGs / New Game

Alright I still have yet to actually attempt to run one of these, and after renewing up fond memories of the mafia game I totally owned lol, it's about time I do.

So who's in?


Valar Morghulis / New New Version

So a while back I made some upgrades to the mod. Have a go at it, if anyone even plays rtw anymore...

This new version includes a more active script...

- Alliances are forced between the Starks, Tullys, and Arryns. It will be annoying when one of them tries to besiege you every turn but that's just a fault of rtw that I can't fix.

- Westeros factions are forced to be neutral to the Knight's Watch, with one exception; if the Boltons become hostile with the Starks then they will not necessarily remain neutral with the Watch.

- White Walkers can't make peace with anyone.

- Dany gets some dothraki boiz if her faction conquers their homeland.

- The White Walkers can be destroyed by capturing their original settlement, and you should get warnings about their expansion, but you'll get a nasty surprise if you venture there.

- You'll get a notification every time someone captures King's Landing.

Also I've removed the modified traits/ancillary bits from before and this seems to have fixed some of the ctd's. Yes I know there are lots of references to 'Romans' and other bits from vanilla rtw but it's just too much to take it all out.

Star Trek / The Orville
« on: March 22, 2018, 07:56:00 PM »
With the disaster that is Star Trek: Discovery (seriously, the acronoym is STD :P) The Orville has become the honorary new star trek series for many trekkers/trekkies everywhere much like Galaxy Quest is considered part of star trek lore.

It's definitely set in a prime-style ST universe; the ships, lighting, uniforms, structure are very reminiscent of TNG, and it also presents a positive and hopeful outlook of the future. The stories are usually well laid out and thought-provoking, and sometimes scary, like the episode featuring a planet that operates on a Facebook style direct-democracy which judges your guilt/innocence. Also it includes some great comedic moments and more light-hearted characters.

All in all it's not perfect; sometimes the comedy timing is off, some of the stories are just rehashes of older ST episodes (at least for someone who has seen them all a few times like myself), but it is an enjoyable program has more of the elements fans of star trek wanted to see but didn't get with STD.

The Boozer / A phone sentence
« on: October 05, 2016, 02:29:08 AM »
Saw this thing on FB. If you have a smart phone or tablet hit the middle word 20 times and see what sentence it comes up with.

I got:

"I don't know what to do with a merc so i changed the way i had the goldcloaks set up."

That's something I might have said last winter while working on the GoT mod. ;D

"We need to talk."

The End

Happy Birthday! <3

Mafias and RPGs / A mafia...

I'll run this thing in a few days regardless of how many sign up. Who's in?

So, following from the rocketry thread, I've been working on the scale model of the Jupiter-C. Near as I can tell I'm doing roughly a 1:34 scale.

Here are the main components already constructed; fins, engine mount, nose cone, and main body. I'm pretty happy with the nose cone. It's an unusual piece to say the least. I carved out the bottom of a wooden dowel rod and attached to it a rolled piece of cardboard, which I shaped by hand since I don't know the math (or have proper measuring tools). :P I made the motor mount to fit the third size motor, one just above the levels I usually mess with, but since this is a bit larger and heavier it might need the extra thrust. I can always make an adapter for smaller motors.

Here it is fitted together, fins not attached yet the one just sitting there for example. Just need to attach those and come up with something for the little Explorer 1 satellite that goes on the very top.

Then it's on to paint and decals...

Star Trek / Theme Songs

Which one is your favourite?

I know I had made a thread for this a long time ago but I can't seem to find it. But anyway I got back into this little hobby again since I haven't much else going on right now. Oh and I also watched October Sky again last night. One of my all-time favorite movies. If you haven't seen it what's wrong with you?

I can't believe how many rockets I've actually gone through over the many years that I was an enthusiast. Dozens and dozens I sent up never to be seen again. The idea is of course to recover them intact. :P

This is my current small collection. The Astra is the base model made by Quest Aerospace that I got quite a few years ago actually. It's been flown at least three times. The Alpha is Estes Rockets' base model, and competitor to the Astra, which is obvious by looking at them, but I think Estes has been around longer than Quest. I just recently got and built the Alpha, as part of my resurgence into the hobby, so it has not flown yet. The Gnome is a mini model from Estes that I should probably turn into an actual explosive missile since it's related to my previous relationship. :P

I've got some cardboard tubes lying around and I'm planning to make a scale model of the Jupiter-C rocket that took the first US satellite into orbit following the Vanguard rocket disaster.


So we'll see how that goes
