A link to the new thread upon its creation would be appreciated yes.  =3

Also… NEW ART!
This was sketched very quickly in photoshop with a 2px brush and no real reference or idea to go by… I just wanted a snake hanging from a tree-branch.
I quickly had something, then blocking in some basic colors. I started with the mouth. As I was thinking of what kinda snake I wanted, I thought “Why not my precious shapeshifting wyvern Rae-rae?” so I chose the loveable clumsy wyvern’s red and cream colors and blocked those in.

The tree was frustrating since I’ve never painted foliage before :XD:
I ended up taking a photograph and slapping it over the tree and branches…


Overall, the entire piece took about 30 - 45 minutes to complete…

Better than I could do…which is almost nothing.  I know how to use PhotoShop for certain things, but I don’t know how to draw with it.  I have a bunch of books and magazines, but haven’t had the time or inspiration to delve into them.

...at my college in northern Wisconsin we had the luxury of a 16” Schmidt Cassegrain in the dome on top of the science lab building. One of the best work study positions i ever had.even though we froze our bums off during the winter (when the atmosphere was the most stable). The Orion nebula was spectacular.

Cool!  We didn’t have a dome, we were just up on the roof of the building.

Ummmm….....5 book trilogy?  confused
Dana

Yes.
Douglas Adams was awesome like that.

Hehehe… Yep!
Hey… Anyone else listen to the radio broadcast series version of the books? I was actually exposed to the radio broadcast before I read the books. Good times! cool smile

I listened to the radio series after reading the books… liked them both, even though they differed a bit (~_~)d.  Interesting comparing the pros and cons of the different media.

Radio series on the ABC years ago, TV series on some channel years ago, haven’t read the books smile

Oh, you have a cricket on the hearth! Those are supposed to be good luck.
Squish it.

Sorry, I have a headache.

Hmm how do I make new ship designs in MoO2?  I figured out how to do it (And name new ones!) in the first game, but can’t figure out how to do so in the second game. All I can find is the option to “Refit” an existing ship, and apparently this option is greyed out unless a ship is docked there ><

(Also, I like how all the ships I have are named after snakes XD )

*EDIT*  Wait never mind I found it.  Refit is for existing ships, Design is for modifying future ships.  I guess you can’t make completely new designs beyond the current ones?

You need to develop technology related to ships in order to get better ships.

Protip: phasors can be boosted into something totally obscene, and thanks to their lightweight structure, you can load a lot of them into, say, a doomstar. Like… 1000 of them. They will totally eat their way through enemies, once you’re there. They are, however, extremely high tech.
