The reference bible refers to an Orions "Fusion Pile Genrators".

The mode of power generation was not in question; I was just confused because all sources I know (including the Ref-Bible) liken FS's Destroyer to Carriers not submarines.

Anthem - While the content is mostly "been there, done that" (at least until the Cataclysm arrives), I still get enjoyment out of the occasional Stronghold. Too bad I lost most of the people that wanted to check it out to The Division 2 lately (which I just can't stand; tried it and found it repulsive)

Warhammer 40k: Mechanicus - ... is what you get when you cross the dungeon exploration of Darkest Dungeon with the combat from Shadowrun Returns; without the individually destinctive features of either, but on a clock. It tries to be a bit XCom-light but doesn't have a depth or variety. However they nailed the atmosphere of an Adeptus Mechanicus (dogmatic cyborg tech-worshippers) vs. Necrons (feudalistic aliens which turned themselves into robot-analogues and still belive they are entitled to the galaxy) - it is oppressive, function- and results-oriented.
Soundtrack added to my writing playlists.

Pillars of Eternity 2 - Someone at Obsidian really misjudged the appeal of Eder... or is that just me?
Well yes, but it's replacing it with the show font.

If we are allowed to do that, go ahead :)!

I didn't realise you were English mate.   Cheers for a good read.

Due you do whatever you need to bud.  We all appreciate your efforts.  Just to clarify, what programs are needed to convert a POF to an STL and prepare it?

If the raynors author can consent, I'll have a go at preparing it at my earliest.
Well yes, but it's replacing it with the show font.

Hi all!

FYI the first part of my two part review and in-depth analysis of Blue Planet is now up on

Part 2 - which has all the links to knossos, HLP etc. will go up by the middle of next week at the latest.

Thank you to everyone who has helped with the creation of this piece, be it from recording videos to constructive criticism of its earlier drafts.

Hope you all like it, and I hope I have done HLP justice.
I like it. But I tend to leave art decisions to people who know something about art.

I think it's okay as well, but why should it be changed? Wouldn't this remove the original TBP font?

Just to clarify:
I'm going to try to run off a ~10 inch Erebus this weekend. I'll let you know how it goes. However...
Prepping a file for printing takes a long time. Aesaar made the Erebus rather detailed so working with the 500k+ triangle mesh either takes my computer a long time to process or just straight up crashes my machine (this includes scaling the mesh, converting to a solid in Autodesk Inventor, removing features from said solid to make a multi-part model, exporting those to STL, then importing those into my laptop which controls my printer, and finally cranking through the slicing process on the files).
So I will be making 1 Erebus (if I even can) for now and posting the results. If it comes out well, I'll consider making a few more to sell here (and I would need to sell them as this takes a substantial amount of time to make, and I could really use the is expensive  :( ).

So yes. Don't get your hopes up yet.
