Kitty Jail 2: You Can (not) Escape

Recommended Posts

I've been watching the changelogs; it's basically a half-reversion to the old Thaumcraft 3 as I see it. The Aura mechanics simply make it more important to be in a good spot to do your infusions and other things.

so we just make mystcraft worlds for infusion....because that's what i did back in the day...

dunno if this is TRUE! but with the new devices that you can use to move Vis  and taint from one chunk to another you can get taint to go from all your surrounding chunks into one chunk and just have that chunk be a "cleaning" to remove all the bad stuff....

I'm a bad man...

 

Playing dwarf fortress, got myself a fortress with a vampire I know about. He's hurt from his epic battle fighting a wereelk and I've got him in the hospital to act as a training dummy for my unskilled doctors.

Because he's been on military station for the past 2 years he's a might bit thirsty. So he keeps trying to make his way to the dormitory where the poor unsuspecting fortressmates are leaving their necks unguarded. But since he's hurt my doctors keep catching him half way there and dragging him back to the hospital area. And I can't stop laughing at the poor bloodsucker.

As soon as I tried it. Yes the learning curve is an overhang cliff with a band of goblin archers firing at you from the top, but tools like dwarf therapist help tremendously. Plus I like both really complex games and town/city sims.

so an interesting topic came up in regards to the new star wars at work last night 

 

1.) how can Fin use a lightsaber? only people who can use the force with the color of your lightsaber deciding your alignment and in the case of a jedi, your rank among the jedi. 

2.) in the 6th movie Luke lightsaber is green, yet the one rai has is blue. this could be explained by the above but is still interesting... (i know in the 6th movie they had to make it green because the blue wouldn't come through on the blue sky if they didn't) 

3.) Rai going directly to Leia and hugging her. Rai hasn't met Leia yet...so they just hug each other to greet each other? no "hi nice to meet you, i watched your husband die and i didn't even try to use the force to try and save him" ....women are weird.

1: Lightsabers aren't magic swords powered by the force. They're massless but partially tangible blades of energy with wonky interaction physics, created by a particle stream through an array of special crystals. The reason you rarely see anyone but a force user wielding one is you pretty much need the force precog ability or a lot of luck to make it past the beginner stages without lopping a couple of your own limbs off.

Han used luke's in ESB, and grevious won out against trained jedi in the clone wars cartoon and RotS.

 

Blade color is determined by the crystals used, not magical alignment reading. The prevailing fan theory is the color is a side effect of the power and focus characteristics chosen when building the saber, with "hot" colors denoting high output with bare minimum focus, while "cool" colors show a blade precisely focused to use minimum energy output to maximum effect. Basically a mirror of the light and dark side mentalities but still a mechanical effect created by the choice of the builder.

 

2: The saber luke used in RotJ was a newly built saber, not the blue saber given to him by obi wan in a new hope. While presumably lost, the saber likely stayed lodged in the depth of cloud city during the empire's occupation and retrieved later after the death star 2's destruction.

 

3: Hollywood.

 

 

Hah, no spoiler tag needed. And yes, I am a massive nerd. So much so you have no idea.

Literally Hitler: http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2016/01/secret-hitler-the-bluffing-game-for-people-who-hate-bluffing-games/

This game looks so fun. I really hope the make a net version.

 

Anyways, I assume everyone has seen or had Star Wars spoiled by now, what did you guys think?

Personally I felt like it was pretty solid, and did a reasonable job setting up for the next movies, but I also felt like they could have spent a little less time on nostalgia/callbacks. I mean, I understand they need to appeal to the "Original" SW fans, but it kind of just felt like overkill towards the end.

I've seen it at least, and whilst it was a good movie for spectacle (good effects, camerawork, battles, actors etc.) I just feel like the plot has too many problems.

 

In no particular order: Rey can use the force out of nowhere, R2-D2 wakes up because the plot wants it (unless, of course, R2 is force sensitive

:crossarms:).

The stormtrooper army is somehow organized in such a way that a single random soldier can grab a very important POW and just walk off with him.

And the biggest thing, no one questioned the fact that the First order built an entire planet into a cannon? That thing was not subtle, and it sounded like the order didn't have the massive military advantage like in the originals, so that thing should have been blown up before its completion!

Still, fun to watch. I don't think Darth Emo is as bad of a character as some people think and I actually liked the saber combat, though I've yet to find a reason why force users can't pull an Eragon and just snap a few synapses with the force when they're in battle, at least against non-force users.

i like the movie as a whole, and the only part i didn't like was when Rai is walking up to see luke and luke says nothing and does nothing. 

I have to agree, that was rather... underwhelming? I kind of expected him to at least say a word or two. Like, "Rey" or something. Something to make everyone freak out with theories.

with the support of my intuition i want to say that luke is Rai's father and that he dumped her on the planet and told her to wait for him

Barring a thorough and complete mindwipe of everything related to Skywalker, it's unlikely.
While she'd heard of both the Force and the Rebellion, most of it she knew only as myths and legends.

She didn't even recognize one of the biggest name generals when he took her ship from her. Methinks Rey would have remembered, if only through stories from her father.

Unless Luke wiped her mind. Which seems awfully Dark Side-y, to me.

Edit: formatting probs.

 I love Darth Emo. He's a very different type of villain than Vader/Sidious and I like that. His temper tantrums and hissy fits make him more hateable and turn him into a villain that you look down on instead of fear.

I think long term, he'll end up being more a interesting character than most Sith. The only thing I really dislike about Darth Emo is the actor. IMO he acted the part really really well, but he just doesn't.....LOOK like a Sith. Oh well, I guess you can't have it all.

He looks like a greasy haired pimply faced emo teenager with daddy issues.

The tortured by a pull to the light side angle is kinda interesting but just screams eventual redemption death. Probably a shaky redemption halfway through EP 9 and a sacrifice play to beat the real badguy. Not quite the full Vader, just a confused kid who was deep down a good guy all along.

 

As for his likely cousin, I'm guessing daddy luke tries to be yoda and keeps it from her until he has to sacrifice himself in EP8 or early EP9.

 

Part of me wants to see michael bay direct 9 just so we can see the first order modify a whole star system to unite and transform into totally-not-Unicron.

But my gut tells me an invasion of the galaxy by twisted horrors from the nether regions of hyperspace, summoned by mr snoke, is more likely. "Behold the real true power of the dark side!"

After credits scene for EP9- "Ms Skywalker. I'd like to talk to you about the Avengers Initiative."

      So i setup a mob grinder spawning slimes and i threw in zombie pigmen to grind gold and i came back after a little while to check the chests and i found a random enchanted sign with sharpness 4 knockback 2 and fire aspect 1 and +10 health when you are holding it in your hands. It is jsut a normal sign from minecraft with enchants and health when you mouse over it. Any idea what mod makes these drop? What mob drops them? What the rate is?

      Noticing an issue with Modular Powersuits. There are random massive overheats which lead to death. Found a video containing what I've noticed here. Found a server's forums listing the issue here. This started in 1.2.8 and has gotten worse with 1.2.9. I am trying to test what might be causing it, and I would like some help. If you've already figured this out or the answer is somewhere I haven't looked yet please let me know.
       
      Thank you.

      UPDATE: I looked into a bit more and tried getting my client to crash and I finally did it. It mentioned that the reason for the crash was something along the lines of "Weak map hash.".
       
      I'll keep this short and to the point. Issue(s):
       
       
       
       
      Other than these issues, the mod pack runs extremely well and so far hasn't caused any noticeable frame rate drops despite the 100+ mods. LAN was run with 1 other person and under most instances both me and the other client were in the same Dimension at all times barring the teleporting sequence. The other client experiences no lag spikes after he/I go to the Nether. I think the random crashes are not crashes at all, rather the game closing it's self for some reason. It's not caused by any one thing and happens randomly.
       
      Edits:
      Added quotes due to editor mashing everything together.
      Sorry if it's hard to read. Every time I make it formatted nicely it adds all the lines into one long one.
