ChaosEsque Anthology is a first person shooter. It is a standalone modification of Xonotic which includes extended weapons, maps, vehicles, buildable buildings, mounted weapons, spell casting, monsters, player characters, textures, and game modes.
It has over 100 maps. Some are futuristic, some are ancient, and some are medieval. A few evoke platform games such as sonic, others follow a style more akin to diablo. Some are static maps, others are randomly connected.
There is something to fit your mood. There are mutators that can add mounted weapons in any map, buildings, monsters, foliage, hazards, and even balloons and bumpers. You can fight with futuristic weapons, medieval weapons, and /or hand to hand combat (over 100 weapons). There are also many vehicles (and a mutator to spawn them in maps that do not have them, as is tradition (as you can see)).
You can also set each team to start with different specific weapons if you want to test a theory that you could defeat a well equipped military force with your bolt action rifle or crossbow. Same with vehicles and mounted weapons spawning (you can set which spawn near which team in CTF etc). You can drink wine, potions, learn magic, read scrolls, so on and so forth.
New Weapon: Streetsweeper shotgun,. Took 2 days to model. flamberge sword. Also new features: drive by shootings if you wish to enable (shooting from car etc interiors), extended mags for AK, lod models for city generator, etc.
>>471 >>472 Hi, Opposition from the "GPL is Revocable" threads. Invade my other areas and I'm going to fucking kill you if I can. I hate you faggots.
Is it worth joining one of these political groups? I am am introvert and would rather just follow my own hobbies at home, but I feel increasingly disgusted with mainstream opinions. I almost feel a calling to do it, like I'm somehow not being responsible enough to stop the CEO takeover and consolidation of the government, while the country keeps voting against it's best interests. The DSA wants to bring back labor unions and uncuck the corrupt DCCC, and while I'm skeptical of some of their positions, I'm already becoming a keyboard warrior for Bernie Sanders.
The capitalists are waging class war and winning it. If I stay I think I must volunteer, even though I hate my fellow country men, otherwise maybe I should flee and save myself before wage slavery and rigged elections become finalized.
I'd say you have three decent choices, either of these recommended: 1) you could leave the US and find a better place to live, 2) you could stay in the US and prepare for an upcoming civil war [prepping, re-locating to a more rural area and becoming self-sufficient] or 3) try to run for an election yourself and take action to make the change on the local level that you would like to see.
The USD is soon going to lose global reserve currency status. China and Russia (and much of the world) are fed up with US hegemony and our interventionist policies, so they are moving to create trade outside the US dollar and currently many are liquidating US Treasury bond holdings. When the US loses global reserve currency status we will be faced with hyperinflation and another massive economic crisis, much bigger than 2008 and multiple debt bubbles will burst in the markets wiping out wealth en mass. Combine this will all the political tension and division, half the nation owning guns, wew baby we got a fucking powder keg ready to blow.
This is the reason I have chosen to live in a much more rural secluded area, on the outskirts of a small town at a good hour drivings distance away from a major city. Got well water. Wood burning stove. Big garden. Solar panels. Chickens. Rabbits. Have connections to local farmers and ranchers as well, and they can supply me wholesale beef and veggies. Yes, a long distance to drive to COSTCO for wholesale foods, but when I do go I bulk up big time, loading my whole truck up for many months worth of wholesale foods. If anyone else can manage doing something like I have, highly recommended. Oh, downside: internet is not as fast as it is in more populated areas.
If you're an English speaker and want to live somewhere left-of-centre, you'd probably be better off trying to emigrate to any of the non-US, English speaking countries. It is likely easier to move to somewhere that's already majority socialist than trying to change an area that's majority not socialist. The US is the furthest to the right in terms of English speaking countries.
>>20618 I'm not against living in the country if I have to. I'd like cities a lot more if they could just build mass transit and stop the air pollution, and provide affordable housing so there wouldn't be homeless. But I think when you're younger and have energy you want the bright lights of the cities, and the constant exposure to young girls, and diverse faces and ideas. The rural areas don't have to be run down and full of aging people, but they are, and it's a major turn-off since I can't relate to the Trump and Hillary show lickers.
I just want to know what colors the socialists will fly if they pull the Democrats left. Democrats are supposed to be blue and Republicans are red, but socialists are red too. The red vs blue fighting is about to becomeanymore. And unless they switch to a new color like Green, I won't know what colors to cheer for anymore. Btw I found out the Democratic Socialists of America are using a rose as their symbol, which they inherited from a French party in the 1970's, because the hammer and sickle has been long tainted by non-democratic dictatorships. It's kind of cool, and feels more environmentally friendly for the 21st century than a sickle which emphasizes productivity and cutting down the Earth. 🌹
>>20718 Either Democrats will spend it on the poor, Republicans will spend it on the rich. You must choose a hand. There will never be a balanced budget, because the banks don't want it. The capitalists want to exploit the government, and they want to frighten Average Hoes into accepting austerity without benefits while the rich buy their 5th luxury helicopter.
The Matrix had a coded message about the evils of capitalism. Listen carefully and you'll hear it.
>>20443 update, surprisingly it took almost a month for AGDQ, the trans feel good safe space event to ban this dude. would feel bad for him but even if you're a "cool" sponsored streamer you're still an e-beggar of sorts if you do it fulltime
>>20716 I still think it was cool how Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez showed up in Discord to chat during the Donkey Kong Twitch speedrun for trans-kids. She's a trendsetter who goes to places politicians don't know exist, and I'm expecting more politicians to copy her during the next few years. Video of it here:
I went to a rodeo as a kid, but I've only recently realized how dangerous and stupid they are. The whole point is to piss off a bull and then to risk your life trying to ride it as long as you can to entertain people. All while a rodeo clown tells redneck jokes to the crowd during the boring bits, interspaced with generic country music, American flag worship, and an audience of fake people dressed in boots and hats, pretending to be cowboys and trying to talk more masculine than each other.
I don't regret seeing it since I didn't pay for it, but it's all pretty ridiculous, and my ticket cost $100. Tbh listening to the clown insult the audience, telling the city folk if they were rich and owned a horse and quarter acre of grass they called a ranch, it meant nothing, and they still weren't real cowboys unless they had 100 acres. Thay was the best part.
>Tbh listening to the clown insult the audience, telling the city folk if they were rich and owned a horse and quarter acre of grass they called a ranch, it meant nothing, and they still weren't real cowboys unless they had 100 acres. Thay was the best part.
That is so true too. Kinda ironic they poke fun at their own audience. I'm from a small rural town and never once been to a rodeo before. It sounds fun, kinda like horse races are fun going to. But around here, if you have 20 acres nearby on the outskirts and junctions you're a farmer or rancher, not a cowboy. Cowboys - real ones that is - are seldom and rare today. They tend to travel from town to town and camp out in 'no-mans lands', always traveling and doing odd jobs to make ends meat. Lone wolves typically.
Is it bad to have bad kinds of friends? Will they corrupt you? Because this Japanese paragraph says that if you pour red wine into white wine it will become red, and human relationships are the same. Therefore if you believe in good causes should you not be friends with assholes who will corrupt you, etc?
The left gets a lot of flack for virtue signaling and needing purity tests to be friends, just like with the strict religious people. However, if if this is all true then you don't want to hang out with racists or conservatives, bad people who think abortion should be punishable with 14 years in jail, etc. It's certainly true for kids, and apparently for adults to some extent too.
Living near others is for the weak.
Not that I don't like humanity, just that, unless you want to prey on them, they aren't worth being around.
If you are strong enough to flee them I mean, and also, perhaps, "work".
But you will work twice as hard in the rural.
Also I had to get space based IP service to get away from people. That was something like 600 USD outlay to own the dish and modem and then 60 USD per month.
Totally worth it.
There are a lot of ideas I like in Japanese morality. One of them is that they are more forgiving of people who tell lies even if they're caught. Japanese understand that what matters is why a lie was told, and they extend the benefit of the doubt by default.
Western moralists freak out about lies and treat them as a terrible sin, and yet if you tell them the truth they are intolerant and can't handle it. So if someone lies they assume they're untrustworthy. With Japanese if someone lies, they'll be more understanding--maybe the person was ashamed, put in a bad position, had no choice, or wanted to save someone from embarrassment.
But Christians act offended when they're told lies as answers, even though often times you asked an inappropriate question in the first place. Like if someone asks you how much is in your bank account, or about your exes, it's no big deal to not give a completely honest answer, especially if you don't trust that person.
>>20661 Problem with 'white lies' is that they devalue words and increase the cost of social contract, if I'm even applying the term properly. I'll just touch on 'word value' here. For example when a Japanese compliments your use of their native language the rule of thumb is that you still suck at it. It's not like being sarcastic, in most cases they're just being nice because you're an outsider or want you to feel good about what you've achieved so far. But it doesn't feel very good when you hear it knowing what it is.
>>20659 >However, if if this is all true then you don't want to hang out with racists or conservatives, What about family who are that way? Not trying to do a gotcha question, just legit curious of your answer.
Yes, but I am in a little town and I have 0 online friends. I managed to get only into one single serious private tracker, the rest aren't serious. I am trying to see if someone pity this priviledged white trash. Usenet is also in general, I never got access to that too.
>>20682 I can agree with you on that, simply because the law doesn't have any legit exemptions (it really should have exemptions for raped victims, cruel not to exempt victims of rape). As far as a childhood 'gestapo' we already have something called the DFS now (who are the state equivalent to the CPS), and they can take your children away if they simply claim you to be a "conspiracy theorist" now days. We already live in a nightmare police state, its just getting worse and worse. And no matter who you vote in, it won't end until we make our moves to end it ourselves.
>>20693 I've completely stopped caring about Mexicans coming in, whether legal or not. They actually adopt to American culture very well, and if they come over here, their kids are more likely to leave religion than if they stay mired in poverty.
>>20688 These 8/pol fuckers sometimes climb out of thethe parents basement and shoot up synagogues, mosques or drive cars into anti- racism protests after posting their manifestos online. They don't contain their racism enough. They act on it and make the world worse.
If Bernie Sanders wins he would be the first independent president in the last 200 years which is historic. He has always ran as an independent for the last 30 years in Vermont. Most of /pol/ don't understand why he has to win, it's the only way to reform the Democratic party around helping America's working class.
I want to help convince confused Democrats to vote for an actual progressive rather than centrist Joe Biden, or any deregulation Democrats. But it scares me how many Democrats actually want Joe Biden to win, because they're feeling nostalgia for Obama already. Just move on people.
>>20677 /pol/ needs to grow the fuck up and get over their racism and elect Bernie Sanders even though he's a Jew. Otherwise Joe Biden wil defeat Trump and he will be another warmongering MIC hawk who declares war on 3 new countries.
>>20589 Contrapoint is a tranby, and her YouTube channel made me switch from begrudgingly accepting trannies to thinking of them as my equal. I am unlikely to get a hot girlfriend, and between the choice of a man and a tranny who can dress well, I'd rather take someone who looks more like a girl.
Just watched black panther. Not deep or amazing, but I liked it better than any capeshit Ive seen in years. The movie teaches you that choosing leaders by hand to hand combat is retarded, and that you can have the most technologically advanced system but if you have a primative political system you can lose it all.
Just watched a movie called Smithereens. Very good movie. Its about a punk-rock loving girl in NYC who wants to be part of 'the scene' so she does whatever she can and exploits whoever she can to make it. Someone eventually does the same to her. Bad Karma. However, is it too late for this girl to make amends with those she exploited and who's hearts she broke? And what will she do if she had no one else to turn to? This movie is extremely realistic and I'm almost sure this has happened to people before. Also, the punk rocker in the movie actually DID play in a punk rock band called "Richard Hell and the Voidoids."
A recent archive. Currently I've been busy watching the Kojak series re-runs from the 1970s, the golden age of TV no doubt. Soon I'll be watching more movies and I'll keep my eye out for other classics. There are a lot of good ones out there, most of them older, seldom are newer ones even worthy of watching sadly. If anyone recommend one worthy or watching go ahead and suggest it but please no SJW/femme crap. I admire good acting and suspenseful storylines, not propaganda and CGI.
Wake In Fright. A classic Australian psychological thriller. After a bad gambling bet, a schoolteacher is marooned in a small mining town full of crazy, drunk, violent men. His newfound binge drinking friends entice him into a dangerous lifestyle where anything is game.
why are you in dead servers you dont talk in? both you and me know you dont enjoy it. come join a better place where its not dead and where you wont get ignored for older members. here we treat everyone equally so you can get all the attention you want. come be our friend!!
oh damn our CEO's rate of pay relative to the average employee is better than Venezuela's huh? The average CEO in Venezuela should be making a few hundred billion at this point though :-DDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Despite an unfair balance in pay between workers and bosses I'd still rather live here than any of those countries except for maybe Italy, and I only say that because I'm not sure how mafia controlled that place is still. Most of South Africa and Mexico are kind of a mess civilly. Germany France and Britain would probably be alright if it were a rural area. Japan seems like a cool place to visit but I don't think you'd ever get to a point where you weren't just some American weeaboo trash living there.
>>20584 Japan's CEOs are paid much less, but the working culture is still intense there. Europe is overall much better because they mandate vacations, and their vacations are basically as long as the summer breaks you had when you were a kid.
I don't buy into the narrative that extreme income inequality is required for progress. I think that's the propaganda capitalists, royalists, and land owners have fostered on is to prevent us from questioning their privilege. If there were more regular Joe's whi could afford a real education, you would get more innovations than as it is, where only the very rich can afford to get a Masters at a great school without entering crippling debt. Debt that prevents them from taking entrepreneurial risks developing new inventions and products.
I also don't buy into the argument work is inherently good. Most jobs suck, just bring in the robots. More jobs aren't the end all either, because what if those jobs were slave jobs? Would they still be good?Economists who only talk about GDP and the unemployment rate are tools of the establishment.
>Sea levels were 20 meters higher >Greenland was green >Antarctica had trees
I just don't see us stopping it before it thaws Antarctica as long as get-rich-now capitalism remains unchecked. When are we going to make the best of it? We need to just abandon the equator, kill off the penguins and colonize the edge of Antarctica. I'm going to be the first to buy land in Antarctica as soon as it's legal.
"It’s difficult to think over the horizon, to organize for the future — to be good ancestors. Doing so means pushing against elements of human nature, the greed of wealthy incumbents, and the sheer inertia of anachronistic mechanisms of governance"
>>20520 It's not just Tesla that is creating self-driving cars and trucks. All that competition will mean lower prices for autonomous vehicles, and companies aren't going to pay truck drivers when they can get FREE drivers who can drive 24/7 without taking breaks, and not complain or go on strike. The writing is on the wall and if you have friends who are in the trucking industry, tell them to either retrain their skills or vote for UBI before the shit goes down.
>>20521 I haven't heard of anyone is talking about banning them, although carbon taxes would be good. Those taxes wouldn't apply to electric trucks.
I'm not against electric cars or new technologies but I am one who strongly believes in consumer choice and economic freedoms. People who want electric cars should be able to have them, just as much as people who want traditional gas-powered cars should be able to have those as well. What makes for a great economy and a happy population is consumer choice, the right to support - and/or boycott for that matter - whatever you desire. That is true diversity, that is what keeps greedy monopolies from rising to power is the rights of consumers to pursue their best interests.
