Soo, curious to see what ppl will say.
Wanna do a 3D animation but dunno what i want to animate, soooo what would you guys like to see animated (only know humanoid movements atm)
Soo~ decided to commit to getting white led strips to put in my pc case so it would add to the "clean" asthetics it has. Currently waiting for it to arrive and will probs post an image when i put them in.
Next meaningful upgrade is gonna be gpu, currently at a r9 290x or 280x can't recall which one. And it aint holdin up as well ( tbf it went through the leaking damage of my AIO last year) so it held up long enough
So i posted this a year back, recently shared it with a discord server as one of the members has been showing their wallpaper backgrounds.
And someone came across it and was saying it is lewd....
I would much appreciate to see what others opinions on it is. As to me this is just a cool stylisation of Zero two
So firstly, if you are an amazon employee this isnt aimed at all of you,
But come one if you are working in customer service, Especially when dealing with an issue regarding the customers money (refund) don't Bs, don't lie, don't give them false hope.
As i had an issue with my prime (unactive for a yr now) and it randomly decided to renew itself. How do i find out? email, SMS, notification from amazon. Nope, throughy bloody online banking when i noticed i was down cash i had....
Contacted support and requested a full, refund not the partial one as this charge had not input from my side, was lead down a 20minute chat saying i'll have the full refund, along with me multiple times wanting them to confirm the amount and an email with the amount owed, never got the email,
Today i decided to enquire about the thing to be told only the partial payment was being refunded, explained to them what i was meant to be owed and has now been confirmed that the remainder should arrive in my account in the next week.
I am not one to put complaints against ppl unless it regards my own money ( does not include stupid purchases i have made :/ )
But you don't lie to a customer about the many they are wanting to be returned especially when it is for a valid reason...
and on another note, don't BS me when it comes to cash as its one thing i keep close tabs on due to Uni for the time being
Turns out i am still Alive!
Kinda let this fall to the back burner some how, so how people doing n All?
Wanna see how ppl doing coming up sooo soon to christmas
I swear to god looking at second hand things to buy annoys me.
a). Do not use image filters
Like come on any image filter will flag a buyer off you post, because it looks like your hiding something.
b). Don't mark your shit as free when its not.
If you put the free tag on your product sell PLEASE include at the start ideally [Not free open to Offers] *Product Name* as the amount of times i ignore Free Items on the second hand list is outrageous due to people then requesting such price for it.
c). clean you shit,
you want it to be appealing. Bring the buyer in by making it look well cared for.
d). Mark any damage or blemish.
Fully photo all damages or scratches and other shiz as people will complain when it comes in the condition they didn't want it to be.
e). Last but not least detailed photos, the more you show detailed photos of the item the more it looks geniune and not a scam, and the more it shows you care about the customer by having said photos with it.
ITS NOT FLUFFING HARD TO DO THIS LIKE COME ON PPL
Gonna sound real stupid but the cooler master support page kinda sucks....
Soooo i have been browsing the facebook market again.....
Firstly their are some ppl in to kinky shiz as holy Fuck is their a lot of those things being sold in my area.
Secondly onto Electronics, Why do people not clean what they are selling...... UGH!!!
YOU may not have kept it in good looking condition but atleast make the possible buyer think you have :/
like is it that hard to take a cloth or vacuum to it to clean of the dust and make it look presentable.
i know i dont clean my pc often on the inside but dont have dust build up visible in the selling photo, it will and most likely has drove people away from your ad due to it.
ugh i should stop lookin through fb.
Ahhhhhhhh I neeed to starty uni work and im 5 weeks already in.....
Time for some late nights :/
Soo this is being done more as an update than a topic post,
Anyway firstly who all played the Anthem open or Vip demo?
Secondly your opinions?
Finally my opinion
(DONT READ PAST IF YOU DONT LIKE AN SHORT ESSAY OF WRITING)
So let me start with the positives;
This was played on xbox one 1st gen
So firstly the game handled greatly when their wasn't server errors and issues happening. The combat in the game is well done and flushed out to an extent. The flying while hard to figure out and dissorientating at first. Proved to be very responsive and clean. The Javalins ( tried all bar the storm) are enjoyable the ranger you can play aggressive of play supportive at times depending on your loadout.
The collasous is a great finisher or follow up javelin for combing or even just leaving a trail of knocked over grunts for fun.
The interceptor (which i loved) basically allowed you to mash the melee button constantly without no cooldown while looking cool doing so.
The Enemies where ranged in sense of play style against them and how to counter.
HUD and layout of the menus where done well but could be improved (talk about that later)
So while playing it the positives is i never got annoyed with the control bar trying to figure out how to fly at first. You could easily do majority of your things from the get go, and when the servers where not an issue getting a squad together worked smoothly.
Now the negatives
Where is the normal melee or stun button, as if you dont play interceptor your melee ability is on a cooldown (short one) but one none the less. They do pretty high damage tbf but still even having a melee which had them stun the enemy by pushing them or knocking them over would be good.
The menus are good but slightly confusing when it comes to editing your javelins loadout. Mainly the weapons tab and main weapon tab ???
Finally and sadly a game killer for me if it is a repeating pattern. The combat against mini bosses. So during one if the missions given in the demo you face a spider tank at the end of it. During you fight with the spider tank additional enemies spawn (normal) what isnt normal is that they spawn constantly. Like it isnt at intervals of the mini boss' health which is a bullet sponge depending on difficulty your on along with it guaranteed stun attack which affected the ranger and interceptor the most. Collasous you raid shield to cancel the stun lock.
Along with that their was fights that dragged out too long, could have been level dependant as i didn't come across it as much later in plays
But sorry if anthem has any more of those mini boss situations where you have adds spawning 24/7 while damaging the boss it will kill the game for me as it goes from being fun to difficult to slightly annoying then ending at frustrating and worthless.
As when i finished these fights you didnt feel rewarded as much as you thought you would have with the time and frustration that went into that part.
Do i think anthem will be a positive game? possibly, the game has potential, the play style and combat is enjoyable along with the customisation of the javelins, end game is a different story, i personally like having something to rotate to for end game and with the current state of Destiny 2 i dont ever have nothing to do on it due to the trumphs book, collections or weekly milestones, along with it lore.
Anthem will be slightly less intensive than destiny in this regards with 3 strongholds for the endgame along with cataclysm world events. (To me feel like rotating special world events, possibly) and just the gear system.
Would i buy it? simply put it no, mainly due to money restrictions but also the fact that it feels heavily co op based and i would only he interested in the story Bioware has given it than the grinding aspect.
Anyway if you read this far, you must be bored and you might aswell share your opinion on the matter if you have played it and feel free to counter some arguements i had about the game.

Well, it would be great if they opened the world up completely in the full version.
I didn't have a chance to fight bosses because I mostly roamed around thanks to the server issues but, yeah, it does sound pretty annoying.
Maybe you are supposed to be able to just wipe out all the smaller guys? Unless this was a really early mission boss.
Sooo some of you guys may find this mean or rude of me other may agree.
I have recently seen an incline in people becoming vegan, vegetarian and of different gender identities.
These are fine by me you do you be what you want and feel like what you want I aint gonna stop you but what really aggitates me is the ones among those religions, gender, or lifestye that feel the need to force you to either know that they are this every second they got or force you to be one of them.
So im gonna be straight here, you can be, do or follow what ever the fuck you want and i will stand by ya only if ya dont try to force it on me or make it feel like my life decisions aren't right. At that point you can fck off and any aggro given by me to you isnt because of what you do its because of your attitude and personality about it....
Had to get that out there because one of the things that have been building up.
So i enjoy my fair share or open world games, rpgs etc. And in a few of them i loved the trading, being able to go hey here i have what your looking for this is the price but willing to negotiate,
I loved trading in many games two i loved the most was Neverwinter and Warframe.
As i would offer assistance to people looking for items, tell them i'll try and source one but at such a handling fee.
So i would get the item be like hey i got this for this much here is your offer including handling fee. And many approved of that or comprimising on my price, gettinf my stock up while getting some sold. That included going hey i can go as low as this but you need to throw in something extra like a item or bp.
I'm sayin this because through out trading in those games i always made sure to keep contact with whos interested now bs people and be fair.
Yet with the issue im having on ebay thats gonna be hard as my bs raidar is goin off and telling me somethings not right with this.
Sooo atm i'm kinda pissed off. A PS2 that was in working condition upon being posted was purchased on ebay, sent the item along with the games, buzzers, controller and 16GB memory cards (2x 8GB)
I have recieved a refund on it as supposedly nothing is working. Some Games, eye toy, mic (an third party one) along with the console supposedly not reading.
Started with, games aren't being read. I asked them about the delay on tue disc read n error.
I responded asking for more detail as i would like to resovle it without it having to be returned. They came back saying one of the buzzers isnt working and that the USB ports are not working either along with the tray now getting stuck.
Atm it annoys me as for all the years i have had the one thing that began to fail was the second controller (wasnt sent)
Sooo kinda annoyed.....

It was sold for a total of £47.50 packaging costed more that i had down but didnt bring up the additional cost it created. So they didnt have that to deal with.
Along with that the console got sold with 8 Games,
A ps2 controller with no grip on the sticks and the power light didnt show up but worked as intended.
Along with two sets of what i had down as fully working (Tested before posting on ebay) a Microphone, Eye Toy and 2x 8GB of Memory.
So they got a lot for £40
And then contacts ebay because i requested the videos they whete syaing the have of it being faulty to be put on a GDrive folder and a link sent to me for revewing.
@firelighter487 & @Cyberspirit, sadly due to this when i get the console back all getting tested. Recorded etc and the thing will be relisted for at a higher price. Because im pretty sure a faulty set of Buzz controllers are being sent back in replace of ones that i had working.
On top of that they said i jad the eye toy plugged into a usb port that wasnt working.... THE EYE TOY was never plugged in on any of the images in the listing so dunno where they got that from.
I'm definightly contacting ebay if the console comes back in worse state than it was sent in and i would like it being resovled in the fact that i get compensated for the price of the packaging wasted and the product itself.
Hmmm im currently worried because i will need to clean out my pc when i get back to it....
As it will be collectin dust till the 20th and it wont be powered back on till then
Soooo mobo came today!!! In a pretty banged up box (not really worried bout that) but it didnt start.
The boards power light came on but didnt post or anything.. to make things better it being a dell board (my mistake) it cant use a generic heatsink :l soooo yeah its getting returned unless anyone wants a mobo that supports a LGA 755 socket (Intel)
Hmm, Sooo im hoping i havent waisted cash on a used LGA 775 mobo. If it doesnt work im gonna get my refund and if it doesnt work could be a cpu issue.... Welp fuk
Soooo its the 31st and everyone knows what that means.....
I have to fucking work in a bar for the night!!!! Yay... but no seriously i hope you all have a great New Years while im serving people drink after midnight.... Ooh ho ho there is gonna be a fun night XD
Secondly i wanna change my profile pic to somethig else but dunno what.
Can someone suggest ones that are anime or Gaming related. Just not from the area past the line pls
Ahhh its the 29th... Tomorrows my birthday (YAY for Cake). The day after i'll most likely be working in a bar for new years day and the day after recovering with nearly 15hrs of sleep
Gonna be fun.
Did i mention cake, i like cake. Oh and ice cream
OMG soo i been looking through my dm's i have with people from the classified forum and holy s***t do i come off as an asshole some time like f***** hell. It not meant to come off like that but jesus i need to work on talking to people while having common sense becuase well i sound like a jackass :l
So this is gonna sound selfish of m but, would anyone be able to help me find a mobo, new cpu and 8GB of Ram all for under £80 total?
Dad took apart his pc today and we think the mobo is dead now....
I'm not good with build recommendations but, I'm sure a lot of people would be more than happy to help in the Builds and planning subforum.
Sooo i got to get feedback on my 3d Models i have done for my Semester Work.
If possible and able to please leave constructive criticism, things i should have changed what i could have done to make it more authentic for the piece etc.
Anyway these 6 Assets are to be Fable assets (Haven't textured them due to mental breakdown) The first 5 are general Assets made within 1000 Tri's the Last one is a Hero piece that was made within 5,000 tris (Assignment limitations) @Cinnabar Sonar i know you do some 3d modelling so would appreciate if you could give some feedback if possible
Thank you to anyone who gives back feed back and suggestions for improvements of these Assets
BOOT(S) duplicated/ Mirrored for second bootSpoiler
Hero Piece (Jacket)Spoiler
won't be addressing polycount/LOD yet (still a bit too early at this stage), but keep the polycount in mind. especially the buckles and small details, you might give it too many polys when the camera won't be able to pick it up
(also take this comment as someone not involved in the project)
also do you have a single image with the set roughly together? (like as if the invisible man is wearing everything you're showing off)
too straight, feels like a cylinder.
also consider the articulation of the foot around the ankles (if the game doesn't have somewhat closer to the ground shots then at least address the first point)
can't comment yet. consider how does one wear that pair of gloves (how would the buckle mounting feel)
Guard feels a bit blocky
- Hood and scarf
go to google images and look up pictures. they currently don't feel like cloth and more like padded something
(at least deal with the silhouette before you start texturing in the creases. otherwise it'll feel like a dbrand skin)
Blade's nice, but the handle doesn't feel like it'll survive the blade (as in the handle can't carry the blade)
feels a bit straight (to a lesser extent with the problem of the boot).
also the back half feels like the front is buckled close. and not sure if the Fable world has close fitting bodywear? (at the forehand area)
also also what's at the back of the jacket? are those belt creases?
I dunno if it is just me but it really pisses me off when im looking through hardware and cases on facebook and other sites and people are posting cases and other things covered in dust and dirt, i dont mind the ones that have stickers on them but if they gonna he a plastered boy it just annoys me :/....
Clean you shit if ya gonna sell it!
Oi, is your pfp an OC or from an anime?
First things first, i have had some to drink already... Buuut i am not drunk.
Anyway i fucking hate how my brain goes to places i want to forget about, but noooooo~ it wants to bring up past shit.
Fuck all this shit.
