    • The plan is to eventually have every possible recurring setpiece modeled in a 3D space using shaders that flatten it out as much as possible and textures that make it look like an oil painting so that I never ever ever ever have to draw another background for the rest of my life.

      • Playing with some settings in Blender, it needs some work but I’ve gotten the program to intentionally “mess up” some of the outlines on these renders to make it look more like it was hand drawn, still dunno how this looks in motion yet though. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875315

            P.S. I do not know any Chinese Smuggler names, I do know that the Solo Star Wars Movie was renamed to Ranger Solo in China.

                • Trump has a clean record of never having campaigned for anyone who lost.... which I assume is why he hasn’t done a single campaign rally in Virginia despite (or perhaps because of) Republicans facing losing their last footholds in the state.

                  • @drinkingpony There’s 100% a path to re-election that doesn’t involve Virginia, which is why I’m confused why he’s targeting this state. He’s planning to offset potential losses in PA, WI, and especially MI by flipping Colorado, Nevada, New Hampshire, Virginia, and New Mexico. Problem is Clinton won three of those states by 5% or more and they only got more Democratic in elections after that. Realistically I could see him winning New Hampshire and maybe Nevada, which is TECHNICALLY enough assuming he loses the Great Lakes and wins Maine’s second congressional district, but it’s not at all a comfortable margin, and Democrats winning even one more electoral vote (ie by winning Nebraska’s 2nd congressional district) would screw him. His best path to victory is maintaining states he already won, not winning new ones, and going after the swing states that went for Clinton is a very weird move.

                  • @mrmattimation Ohkay, I think I found the sore spot right then and there.

                    > "best path to victory is maintaining states already won, not winning new ones,"

                    That is way too much true to the whole idea of political ideologies eating themselves once they get more and more totalitarian. That is "Back your base !" "Back Your Base !" "BACK YOUR OWN FRIGGIN BASE !" untill you have alienated everyone that was not already part of the in-group by the first time those words were chanted.

                    Back to modern day America. No group is going to win without the support of the people who feel no strong affiliation and rather let the policies ( or gut ) speak to them. Hell, the Rust Belt voted surprisingly Trump after 2 election cycles of "Hope".

                    Not to say I would not be surprised that in the campaign office they jokingly talk about 'It is not about winning, it is about sending a message' while giving it their best Michael Caine impression.

                    But it honestly sometimes is, just about sending a message.

                  • @drinkingpony It’s all in state leans really. If Trump doesn’t win Wisconsin, he can’t win Michigan, and if he can’t win Michigan, he can’t win Virginia, if he doesn’t win Virginia, he can’t win Colorado, etc, etc. Once you lose one state it becomes a lot harder to win states that lean further from you, not impossible, but harder.

Hopefully that means it’s back to animating every day for me.
