Question: Has there ever been a female looking mech (feminine looking or directly female in appearance) outside of anime?

I'm going over the Battletech mechs in my head right now and I can't think of one.

I'm gonna have to ask what you mean by "female looking mech," since I look at stompy mechs (like Battletech) and I don't see gender, I just see actuators, stress points and centre of gravity. I don't see refridgerators or toasters as being "male" or "female" either, so I'm gonna need some help.

How would I recognize a "female-looking" mech if I saw one? (and while I'm here, how would I recognize a "male-looking" mech if I saw one?)

Having the leaves autobreak when you chopped the tree down caused ridiculous amounts of slowdown apparently, and he's been focusing on other things before fixing this. Which I think is a bad focus because tree shaving is boring.

Do you know what Minecraft really needed? Actual gameplay. The Minecraft Invasion Mod offers pretty much that.

So what does it do? To keep it simple: you build a base and defend it against hordes of zombies, pigmen, spiders and all kinds of other baddies. Other than actual minecraft-mobs, these guys have some tricks up their sleeves. Pigmen engineers will build bridges and towers, put down ladders and all in all be a big nuisance. Zombies can dig through walls. Spiders jump around (ohmygod). And other stuff.

It's SMP-compatible so the 5 of us already raised and lost around 4 strongholds. We're getting a bit further each time and made it to wave 33. It is fun figuring out designs and outsmarting the AI. Try it out for yourselves, you definitely wont be disappointed: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/780480-125-invasion-mod-v094-so-you-think-your-base-is-tough-do-you/

Slavehack is a game about hacking. It is Uplink meets Neuromancer meets Firefox. It is incredibly 2006. In the game, you have a virtual PC, which has a hard drive, a log, and an external drive. Nothing in the game has any effect on your real computer, of course. You visit different IPs in your browser, mostly NPCs at first, crack their passwords, log in, download their software, install viruses, delete their shit if you're feeling vengeful.

Every computer you hack is called a 'slave'. You can install viruses on slaves (4 kinds - VSPAM, VSHARE, VDDOS and VTRACK which is worthless). VSPAM gives you money based on your victim's CPU, VSHARE required you upload a .rip to their computer and gives you money based on their bandwidth (I believe it is more money on average), and VDDOS is used to use the victim in a DDOS attack. VTRACK is a worthless late-game virus you can use to track people after they change IPs, but it leaves a message in their logs every ~15 mins and you have to buy a domain so ew.

You can then use the money to buy hardware upgrades. It's possible to steal people's bank accounts, either through their logs or the bank's logs if they log into their account there for some reason, and then siphon all their money away, too.

Tip: Basically everything leaves a log. The only things I know of that don't are cracking passwords. Always cover your tracks ASAP, and keep your home log clean. When you get hacked (and it is inevitable), you shouldn't leave your bank account # or any of your slave IPs lying around.

The 'levels' in the game are software. You get software by following the riddle trail from NPC to NPC and downloading it. There are 177 NPCs in the game, so it's a long trail. I can help you guys out by setting you up with some decent software after you get out of newbie protection.

The way to damnation

Today I killed a man,
I crushed it’s skull in my fist, wet eggshell and mangled screams as my hand closed effortlessly. It was not the first man I have killed, nor will it be the last, I can’t remember how many I have killed, men I have killed, I have killed more than men, or less than men as I once saw them, green things, which would rip their own limbs off to try and kill you. And others beside, but these were always Righteous killings, they were good and they made me proud to wipe the surface clean from that filth. To kill the xeno was a simple thing,

But killing men was different. As an Astartes, humans are somewhere near us, I think I remember a time when I was weak, I feared, but that is like remembering a smell, I know we came from man we, were men, and now we are not. But there was a point where I could know a man I could talk to one without killing it, they die so easily you see, so frail, yet, I used to envy them. we can do things that the men can only dream about I’ve done things like would make men’s hearts rejoice , I’ve heard them singing our names alongside the almighty’s name , the one I thought was my father who watched over me and my brothers. The men called us his son’s, his angels, we believed them we respected them; we protected them from the horrors. As many and as brave as they are there are things a they simply cannot do. They needed us. And deep down I knew we did not need them. But still, I envied them because despite there weakness they could do things that we could not.

As a slave your thoughts cannot be your own they are your masters possessions, your actions are his possessions, you’re very existence is because your master lets you live, even in death you’re body does not belong to you. Your every waking moment is bent towards him you are a manifestation of him. You do not exist. This is the life of an Astartes, to walk even the slightest off this co

No. 20979 ID: 411a22

Bodypart targeting is done on the little paper doll on the top right, while actual attacks are done on the character proper. The only time you would actually need to deal with bodypart targeting is at round start (to switch to head), while healing someone with bruise packs (for head/chest), and for the bodypart severing of /tg/ (where you should have them down and have plenty of time to cut their legs off)

As for lag, yes that can suck at times. It is still possible to hit people while lag goes on, your movement will still be somewhat registered before everyone's screens update (provided you both are moving towards each other or somesuch)

I like to call SS13 lag matrix mode because I dodge gunshots even easier when it does happen. Nothing like dodging an entire taser's worth of power without running away from the officer.

Back row, Lizardman rogue, Insectoid fire mage.

The minotaur, despite having the most HP, drew so much goddamn aggro and got his face wrecked tons for some reason. Also played Oldschool because CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

The manufacturing process he eliminates is tumbling the dice if those are GameScience dice. Tumbling the dice doesn't round the corners in a uniform way, making them less random by making the shape irregular. This effect is compounded by allowing them to roll for longer, exacerbating the irregularity.
No. 20947 ID: 3eb900

All casinos use fresh, sharp-edged dice because they are more random. Casinos do not use dice that allow the person throwing the dice to manipulate the result.
No. 20952 ID: 72d49b

Nothing other than cheating actually effects how random dice are. True randomness means the outcome is impossible to predict, but since dice being rolled follow the normal and consistent laws of physics, they can theoretically be predicted even if doing so is beyond human ability. The only technically accurate and practically useful measure of randomness is how difficult it is to predict. In this regard, dice have randomness that is always adequate for all practical purposes.
What is actually in question is actually the variation in probabilities of each possible outcome. As far as that goes, rounding corners decreases the reduction in roll on each turn of the die and thus increases the effect that irregularities have. So it does increase variation in probabilities, meaning that one possible outcome may be substantially more likely than the next.

I found part of the problem: if I go to http://4chan.org/banned , I'm told I have a 7-day timeout from posting to /co/. Doesn't explain why I was getting the beecock.jpg instead of the normal banned message. Also doesn't explain why I get beecock.jpg when I'm trying to post to any board that isn't /co/.

I'm guessing it's a software glitch; the thingamajigger that prevents me from posting isn't checking first to see which board I'm posting to, and it's assuming any ban is a global ban.

I'll file a bug report. I hope I get to talk to a sane mod, and not one of the power-mad ones.

A lot of enemies have extremely specialized defenses. Usually they have one that they are amazing against, one that they are middling against, and one that they are terrible against. The scavengers, for example, have like 3000 KE defense and 200 TE defense.

The boss of level 7 has similar defenses, but skewed the other way. If you just fire at him with gatling/shot guns he goes down in about 2 seconds.

If the garage system didn't make it apparent -- along with lower part costs and higher rewards -- ACV is a lot more focused than the previous games around retooling yourself to fit the situations. The weapons you use make a HUGE difference in story mode.

Forgot to take shots at the screen during the fighting because I was busy, well, fighting. Also the results, because wasn't thinking ahead.

The landing was a success. Over a thousand enemy casualties with only 37 US casualties. 79 enemy vehicles of various types were destroyed or disabled, with only 7 friendly losses.

A significant number of enemy vehicles and weapons were captured.

Two mortars were captured and immediately turned on their previous owners, most notably killing the crews of two Pak38s and destroying a Pak40. There was scratching of heads when, after the battle, the mortars were identified as Russian BM-37s.

The initial force consisted of one M8 howitzer, an M5A1 Stuart light tank, an M3 light antitank gun, an M1 mortar and an infantry element roughly the size of a platoon, including a flamethrower and a sniper. With generous use of HE fire from the M8 and Stuart, the beachhead was secured. Immediate enemy counterattacks in the form of infantry and light vehicles were soundly beaten, with captured machineguns and an antitank rifle put to immediate use.

The Stuart was exceptionally effective in clearing the beach town. While the M8 and Lance Corporal Matther Rogers's flamethrower emptied buildings of infantry, the Stuart destroyed or disabled several light vehicles and eventually rushed into the town, killing infantry and the crews of a mortar and an MG-42 preventing infantry incursion into the town. After the town was captured, the Stuart destroyed or disabled several PzIIs and three PzIIIs, before being destroyed by a PzIII. M5 AT guns had landed by this time, so while regrettable, the loss of the Stuart did not compromise the expanded beachhead. Two other Stuarts landed and engaged several PzIIIs effectively, one on each flank.
The M3 AT gun destroyed several light vehicles and from an excellent position engaged several PzIIIs effectively after the town had been secured. By the time the right flank began its push beyond the town, though, the M5 heavy AT guns had moved too far forward for the M3's field of fire to be effective and it did not have the range and firepower to engage the PzIVs that the enemy was now sending in numbers.

Pictured: LCpl Matthew Rogers and LCpl Allen Hill after the battle. While room-to-room fighting in the beach town was not necessary because of the effectiveness of the flamethrower, the rest of the battle did not see any opportunities for Rogers and Hill.

1st Sergeant Nathan Miller eliminated and suppressed individual fighters in the windows facing the beach. He then covered the road on the left flank until the town was secured, after which he killed a machinegunner and two riflemen in the inn just beyond the town on the right flank. He then killed two light machineguns and several soldiers behind a stone fence, and killed several German paratroopers and scared away others on the right flank, from the rampart of the elevation the church stands on.
During the push he eliminated a heavy machinegun team, and killed or suppressed other infantry in a trench. While he advanced with the frontline, the capture of the trench effectively ended his contribution as the nature of the battle changed decisively in favor of US tank destroyers and artillery.

Ordered by his commanding officer to bring the luxury car seen outside the inn to the staging area after the battle, Private Allen Allen discovered an unused, loaded German sniper rifle, in pristine condition, just lying on the backseat of the car.
He did not report this finding to his commanding officer and intended to keep the it, but a Ranger found out about the rifle after the battle and offered Allen cigarettes, a Walther P38 and a German officer's cap for the rifle.

Besides 40k games (nothing wrong with them just asking for others) what are some good sci-fi RPG games for newbies? Or how about in general?

Every other sci-fi RPG either has terrible rules/premise or it mind fucks you with charts on top of charts inside of charts. OR you die as easily or easier than you die in CoC (which is a strange trend amongst many sci-fi systems apparently)

Help me out.

Oh god what? GURPS and Traveller? The man said we were to AVOID excessive charts, not play Charts: the RPG.

Any time someone is looking for a newbie-friendly, simple system for ANY setting, I recommend BESM. Ignoring its anime origins, BESM is a simple, fun, cinematic system with a great deal of freedom. Since it is a universal system, you NEED to make your own setting, and you may want to disallow some of the out-of-genre attributes (mostly magic. Or not I guess, up to you.) It is probably wise to keep the system out of the hands of problematic min-maxers, because it can be broken pretty easily, but if everyone is there just to have fun, it's a great choice.

I personally would recommend...

Fading Suns.

There was a DnD flavour of SciFi called Alternity. And then there was d20 Modern, which I really recommend against. Or to look up some upgrades to it because WotC ended that line pretty quick.

NOW... there is also Starwars - original Flavour and D20. Both are pretty fine but the availability of the former is low.

You're probably more after spaceships than dystopias, but Paranoia is good times and has lasers. And because most of the fun is in the fluff and the uneasy alliances/bastardly plans, you can throw most of the complicated parts of the crunch out of the window and six-word-RPG it if you've got a good DM.

(Yes, OK, you die a lot, but you get to do it six times per character sheet...)

This right here. You could play it perfectly fine without dice if you wished.

Hiya, tg! So I just found this place and I'm not sure where to put this, but I've started a quest of my own and wanted to know what you guys thought of it/ any kind of critique.

/questdis/ is for quest discussions.

So far the only thing I think about it is that it's not worth mucking about with tumblr.
Other than that... it seems a bit derivative in style, looks like you tried a bit too hard to be like Rubyquest.
Since I understand some people like to hear positive things even though there's little you need to change based on that information, I'll also note that your art is entirely adequate, stuff is represented clearly and your character has a distinct look to him.

Haha, I've never actually read Rubyquest but I'll try to work on something that's distinguishable from it. Thank you for the input! I also apologize for posting it in the wrong board, haha.

If you've never read ruby quest well, just keep doing what you're doing. Aside from waking up in a box, it's not THAT similar.

Okay, so I wrote all this in posts on IRC, mostly just so Trout wouldn't write another one of those dragon rape things.

Pic most likely irrelevant.

~ Beginning ~

The Rexic family wasn't very well known before the 1800s, mostly being a very old line of very boring people. That all changed when Coby Rexic, a bean farmer, was dealing with his very boring problems and accidentally found an old cache of Spanish gold. Thirty tons of Spanish gold, actually. When experts were asked where this gold came from, they weren't sure, but considered it might be the result of ancient Spanish automatons made out of gold. From then on, every member of the Rexic family was a giant success in some way or another; Jack Rexic was a very influential member of British parliament, besides being five years old and American besides, Tom Rexic was the first boxer to win every boxing match he fought in while completely naked, and Mary Rexic was a housewife. But she was a very good housewife.

This string of success lasted until the 1980s, when the latest member of the Rexic family line, coincidentally also named Coby, was born. From the moment he slipped out of his mother and somehow (probably accidentally) killed his father, he was the unluckiest person on the entire continent. This title was scientifically proven, but all the scientists went missing under mysterious circumstances before they could reveal their findings. His bad luck seemed to radiate out and touch everyone who shared even a bit of blood with him. His mother, while taking him to watch the shuttle Challenger be shot into space, ended up being the world's first accidental astronaut, while the young Coby Rexic watched the pretty lights in the sky and thought about how much he loved Cabbage Patch Kids.

His biologist aunt Emily, one of the few adults of the Rexic family still left alive, went traveling in Africa, and ended up discoverin

This quest hasn't really been going for very long, but the response has stopped and this is a good place to leave off until the next thread. Would it be frowned upon to archive it now and begin a wiki article before starting a new thread to continue?

Well it's kindof an awkward update too. It looks like the ending post, or something. Not much of an opening for suggestions.
No. 20771 ID: e82d4b

It was intended to be the ending of the introduction and the start to the true adventure, so I see what you mean. I apologize for any misunderstandings.
No. 20772 ID: e82d4b

If you think it would be better to archive now and start a new thread at another time I will do so. I just feel it's a bit too short to rush it into the archives.
No. 20773 ID: 97bd86

The thread isn't all that long... you could always start a second "chapter" or whatever in the same thread.

I mean I guess we could archive it for you too as is but.
