Re: Tribute - MS Paint The FS Moments
I think it's about Shivans who face firstly the brown guys and destroy them.
Then they find the green ones. In their offensive, they are overwhelmed by a joint force of different enemies.
However, they rebuild their fleet with some asteroid material. Back on the offensive, their enemies retreat and collapse the jump node between them.
Some elements of the Shivan fleet get through though. Once there, the previous alliance against shivans dissolves letting the green guys alone.
During the combats, a lone green ship tells the Shivans that all is part of some complot scheme.
While at it, they're discovered by the green authorities that try to destroy them, but the shivan ship escapes and reports the situation.
The shivans trash some green armada including some big capital ship hiding into a green gas giant(I guess...).
After that, they go into a world inhabited by the green people and destroy it. The green fleet flees the scene collapsing the node after them.
The shivans construct some knossos device and get to the green's homeworld.
Once there and before the final battle, some orange ship (Vishnans? would explain the BP reference) appear.
Suddenly all shivan ships get warped somewhere (another reality?) and some green fellows get stuck with them.

So, what I'd like to know is this:
- who is each faction? I think red is shivan, green Terran, orange vishnan but I got no clue on the rest.
- is this the plot for your children of shiva campaign?
- what the hell is that blue thing with a question mark over it?
- am I crazy or did I get something right out of that thing?

Isn't it self-explanatory?

As self-explanatory as the last one, which is to say "not at all".
Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Codethulhu GitHub wgah'nagl fhtagn.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

When you gaze long into BMPMAN, BMPMAN also gazes into you.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

Panel order is still right-to-left but the text is mostly oriented the way you are used to this time.

You need to link to an actual image file, not a page, in order to embed it.

that's a very good ****ty myrm
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.
