[11:19:58] <Aria> I need to start getting up when you get up
[11:22:32] <Bronz|work> Yes, also, if you can't, don't set an alarm so early, because you'll ignore it anyawy
[11:22:46] <Bronz|work> Set it for 10 or 11, so you wake up at a reasonable hour.
[11:22:52] <Aria> =/
[11:23:06] <Bronz|work> Also, hi!
[11:23:08] <Aria> Nah, I just need to actually get up
[11:23:09] <Bronz|work> how goes?
[11:23:10] <Aria> Hi
[11:23:30] <Aria> Good I suppose
[11:24:15] <Bronz|work> Ok, that's good to hear, I suppose.

[11:51:43] <Bronz|work> Hi Apsup.
[11:54:50] <Apsup> Halloo!
[11:59:20] <Bronz|work> Doing well?
[11:59:58] <Apsup> I think so.
[12:00:38] <Bronz|work> Good. Keep doing that
[12:01:30] <Apsup> Yes, I keep drinking coffee.
[12:04:19] <Aria> "I have determined that Twitter is not the place for this convo. Which is why God made Facebook :)"
[12:04:53] <Aria> He might be joking, but the context makes me think he wasn't.
[12:24:07] <Aria> People in the comments of MGS Survive English demo are asking for a Phantom Pain remake.
[12:24:49] <Bronz|work> ...
[12:25:00] <Bronz|work> Remake?
[12:25:27] <Aria> It was in production too long. By the time it came out, it was using 5 year old tech!
[12:26:37] <Aria> Yeah I dunno. Maybe it has something to do with the cut mission?
[12:32:37] <Bronz|work> Mebe?
[12:38:46] <Apsup> !!!!
[12:38:50] <Apsup> Forums look different.
[12:38:54] <Apsup> Change!
[12:38:58] <Bronz|work> Forums?
[12:39:05] <Bronz|work> Oh, the FRC ones?
[12:39:12] <Aria> But they dont though?
[12:41:01] <Bronz|work> http://forum.frontrowcrew.com
[12:41:13] <Bronz|work> Of course people are complaining immidialty
[12:41:39] <Aria> But its the same...?
[12:41:50] <Aria> It used to be more blue. Is the change that its now gray?
[12:42:01] <Bronz|work> there's more space between the comments as well.
[12:42:24] <Aria> Yes
[12:42:26] <Aria> I see
[12:42:42] <Aria> Right, before it looked like Google Groups
[12:42:49] <Aria> Now it looks like Discuss comments
[12:43:06] <Apsup> Also it's definitely thinner now.
[12:43:22] <Apsup> Lost of screenspace wasted.
[12:44:33] <Aria> Put it on your thin screen.
[12:47:25] <Aria> I changed the width to be 2500 instead of 1070 or whatever it was, and it doesn't look as good now
[12:47:42] <Aria> Wasting screen space is better than making you move your head really far
[12:51:23] <Aria> Also why are all the profile pics super compressed and shit?
[12:51:47] <Aria> Apreche: If you're gonna change anything, make the pictures not look like garbage
[12:59:18] <Bronz|work> Actually, it's hosted by Vanilla now?
[13:28:45] <Aria> How big are Japanese swords?
[13:28:55] <Apsup> depends on the sword.
[13:29:19] <Bronz|work> Somewhere between too big and too small
[13:29:35] <Aria> I feel like mine is too big?
[13:29:40] <Aria> But when I make it smaller its too small?
[13:30:43] <Apsup> Remember that just scaling things might not work, you also have to consider the handle and blade separatly.
[13:31:18] <Aria> But Im happy with my handle and blade ratio when I look at the blade stand alone
[13:31:38] <Aria> But I didn't make it to scale with the guy who is using it
[13:33:00] <Bronz|work> Try scaling only the blade in only length
[13:33:27] <Apsup> https://en.wikipedia.org
[13:59:14] <Aria> Guy is 1.90 and sword is 1.55
[13:59:54] <Aria> (It took way too long to find the ruler. Esp since it's just right there.)
[13:59:58] <Aria> Thats about right, right?
[14:01:03] <Aria> So thats about twice correct lenght, I guess
[14:01:30] <Bronz|work> Yeah.
[14:01:46] <Bronz|work> Though I think it's 70cm including handle, normally.
[14:09:05] <Aria> I should put a scope on the sword...
[14:11:09] <Bronz|work> This is a thing you can do, yes...
[14:18:09] <Aria> Didn't look good
[14:19:01] <Aria> Handle on the hilt (since its not a good shape to hold), should it be poking out the normal, or be going along it?
[14:19:18] <Aria> Not hilt, seath I mean

[14:25:12] <Aria> Hi
[14:25:16] <Aria> Did I miss anything?
[14:26:39] <Bronz|work> Yes, me!
[14:26:40] <Bronz|work> =D
[14:27:01] <Aria> Handle like T or like this D ?
[14:29:37] <Bronz|work> D.
[14:29:43] <Aria> Ok
[15:59:11] <Apsup> D is good only for one hand I think. T allows two handed use better.
[15:59:20] <Apsup> But I don't know anything about swords, so don't quote me.
[16:13:09] <Aria> Oh the top line in T isn't part of it
[16:13:18] <Aria> Top line is the floor
[16:13:26] <Aria> I went with D, since its been a while

[18:58:59] <Aria> Hey Apsup help me with this
[18:59:11] <Aria> This guys sheath is just a box
[18:59:41] <Aria> I wanna add a plastic box on the side that persuambly has some mechanics on the inside
[19:00:25] <Aria> But the shape I chose for that plastic box is fairly simple, as makes senser
[19:00:46] <Aria> But now it looks distinctly low poly
[19:00:53] <Aria> So I need to add some verts or smooth it out
[19:00:58] <Aria> What do I do?
[19:03:11] <Apsup> Accept that sometimes things can be simple.
[19:16:05] <Bronzdragon> Apsup is full of wisdom.
[19:16:21] <Aria> It looks real bad..
[22:44:21] <Aria> Could you look at my sheath and tell me what you think?
[22:44:58] <Aria> Its not textured, but its gonna be saftey stripes yellow and black Im thinking
[22:46:41] <Aria> http://i.imgur.com http://i.imgur.com
[22:58:59] <Aria> Gonna add a IEC 60320 C15A port somewhere and somewhere for the rope that attaches it to the belt to attach, but otherwise I think it's good... right?
[23:13:51] <Apsup> I feel that it reminds me of something, but can't remember what.
[23:13:58] <Aria> A fight stick_
[23:14:04] <Aria> ?
[23:14:06] <Aria> Sol Bad Guy?
[23:14:16] <Apsup> Sol maybe.
[23:14:31] <Apsup> Many fight sticks don't have exhaust pipes.
[23:40:01] <Aria> I added some gauges to the front
[23:40:14] <Apsup> why+
[23:40:15] <Apsup> ?
[23:40:20] <Aria> To gauge stuff with
[23:40:23] <Bronzdragon> Coz they look cool?
[23:40:25] <Aria> Because it was bare
[23:42:11] <Apsup> Have you tried making the texture. That's one way to make it less dull without putting lots of shit all around it.
[23:42:36] <Aria> I mean, the texture is just diagonal stripes
[23:42:55] <Aria> And I like do dads
[23:43:10] <Apsup> Well, if it needs to be more fancy you can try more fancy texture. Stop adding stuff just cause. It's usually a bad idea, for any deisgn.
[23:46:17] <Bronzdragon> Tell that to the MGS Rising people: http://img00.deviantart.net
[23:46:56] <Aria> I mean, that's fair. But gauges serve a in-lore purpose. It's not just random spikes. I like adding details...
[23:47:03] <Aria> Also Sams sword is cool
[23:47:56] <Aria> Also Sams sword is a lot simpler than mine...
[23:48:08] <Apsup> The sword itself is pretty simple.
[23:48:15] <Aria> Sheath I mean. Sword is simple on mine as well
[23:48:35] <Apsup> Yea, half of the sheath is just normal, as it doesn't need to be more than that.
[23:48:55] <Apsup> Huge gun parts already do more than enough to sell that as something different.
[23:49:09] <Apsup> Also, had actual function.
