    Hey, so the Totally Legit Rainbow Rocks Recap got its final part.

    Gracious, I love DWK. It's clear just how much unrelenting passion and dedication he put into this. Full on lip synching, he learned to play new instruments, perfect pacing, and he finally gave us all the true meaning of waifus.
    We must hurry if we wish to win the game before we realize the game is pointless.

    I find "They're idiots" is generally a good first guess. "Lawyers" is generally on the list as well.

    Condolences on your loss, Zim.

    Imgur is supported by ad revenue.

    Lots of people posting Imgur linked images means lost of people use Imgur's service without seeing ads on Imgur's site, and thus without generating any revenue for Imgur.

    Apparently, Giantitp users surpassed the limit of hotlinking without actually linking that Imgur was willing to tolerate.

    At least that's the explanation the people in the Demotivational Poster thread came up with.

    Also, I realised there is a really quite large pony mod for Hearts of Iron IV, which I actually installed and did the tutorial for. Might be a bit before it gets updated to the next pacth version of course, but...

    FWIW, he died just the way he wanted to - at a moment when it just so happened none of us were in the hospital room with him, the first such moment in many weeks. He was a strange man, and we loved him for it. And his body will go the way the song has it Joe Hill's went. Probably some time in the summer.

    Too knackered - plus Mum's birthday to to it yesterday, so it was delayed until today, but in the words of Cloister the Stupid, I have returnethéd.

    Not bad convention, we were pretty busy chatting (though we did pack up slightly early, because we had to get back 'cos it was Mum's birthday.) I even bought Some Starships That Weren't Mine (Ground Zero Games had some new Kra'Vak out, and as they are probably my least used-fleet - the combination of no shields, high-class bolts being were swing-y and a total reliance on PDM (point-defence missiles) for missile defence means that they are A Bit Pants - the new fleet designs with little turrets are a good excuse to kit them out wth some actual PD guns...)

    Spoiler: The Battle
    Show
    The Phystyulons have pentrated, using their Dro-Sanla into dwarf space on their way to the Path to Enlightenment. (Is it a place? A state of being? Only Physt - wherever he is at the moment - and KALAX know for sure.) However, they encountered a secret GLA encampment on one of the worlds, apparently unbeknownst to the dwarves. And thus what followed was the typical GLA response to stimuli - screaming "aiaiaiaiaiaiaiaiaiaiai!" while charging.

    The battlefield:



    GLA Right


    GLA Centre


    GLA Left


    Phystyulon Right


    Phystyulon Centre


    Phystyulon Left




    We didn't even quite finish one bound (usually a sign we were talking a lot), but it was still pretty bad for the GLA.

    The Hyeneas in the centre had been basically wiped out in taking out the Laser Pylon, and stripping the shields off the MBTs and HAPCs on the ridges.




    The only successes was a just-barely-managed-the-handshakes (bearing in mind each chain is at 7+ on D20 and there were about four stages...) was dropping a full load of Scud Mortar rounds on the now-shield-less heavy APCs and killing two of them:


    ... and gross overkill on a trio of Rocket Cycles, in the area deliniated by those little green markers there (because I haven't made a stonk marker for the toxin/nanite field and Dad's swamp markers were handy!) I dropped a full load of 11 stonks on them, hoping for the low chance of an actual armour hit - like I did on those APCs later - before remembering, wait, bikes, open-topped, in the open, one would have done...


    There were MBTs near the forest on the right, though the presense of all the infantry and the terrorists (in those cars) kept my oppo from being too keen...


    ... which was as well, since I'd lost two of my rocket Boxers (which were SUPPOSED to be my reserve) thanks to spotted rocket fire from the Tarovazks at the back because I hadn't placed them well (despite my efforts, I still hand't given myself a safe deployment zone when I did the map even then. I all too often do that, and it probably doesn't help that it means I split my army up before I start...) That's why the bikes need to go.




    I am left with the impression that, despite out-numbering the enemy basically three to one, the GLa probably would have needed to cycle in the Hyeanas to be able to continue...


    Before we reach the dreaded Humoruous Pictures, a moment of shameless self-indulgance. I did some casting master commissions for Kallistra (who run Hammerhead, actually, which is partly why we get in the snazzy bit with the carpet!) for some (144th) WW1 tanks. It has taken the ages to actuall get them released - they apparently had so much trouble getting a decent print to make the master from they bought their own in the end! But they were all finally out, and I am dead pleased. The fact the rivets working - at a mere 0.2mm in diameter, I am still well-chuffed over.

    Oi, come on, I know I'm awesome, but this is riduclous.

    Don't make me animate you.

    I mean, how can I possibly bore you all with the Equestria at War mod for Heart of Iron IV (when it updates and I've followed up my... Not-very-good Italy run that I finished last night1 with hopefully a better German one) if you aren't there to be bored at?

    I mean, come on, it's the first GSG out of 'em that even appears to HAVE a decent pony mod, let alone such a massive and extensive one!

    England and Romania locked me out of the entire bottom half of the non-tech national focus tree, more or less simulataneously, preventing both Pact of Iron and Italy First... So I basically had to join the Axis anyway,

    Germany snowballed, with England's help, and I was pretty much irrelevant for the game.

    I did pretty well with research, I think, though I almost completely neglcted doctrines (since Italy has two already chosen and I had no idea what to pick for ai combat - until the ended phase of the game, where it was a case of "might as well, now."

    I maxed out the navy tree, and Italy has a fairly strong, modern navy (alibeit with only one carrier...) And jet fighters. And nukes (I even got to drop one on the US, for all that was worth...)

    The problem was, because Germany and the UK snowballed so fast, I basically never got enough forces to make any contributions (I had, what just barely over a hundred divisions at game's end), so I never got any resources (and I was entirely dependant on Germany's steel exports, and every so often, Hitler would switch to closed economy and back again for no readily apparent reason, which completel scuppered me). All my provinces were more or less maxed out with factories... Which would have been more helpful if I didn't require so many civilian factories to import stuff.

    I was completely taken aback at the end of the first big war where, having occupied chuncks of France, they were neatly taken out of my hands by Germany. It frustrated me even more when I tried several times picking on a small nation, not calling my allies in, then having it dragged into the big wars, so I got scraps, if anything, out of it. (The delight of being given, like, the option of two provinces and being told "nope, you can't pick that one after all" - pretty sure at one point I had to pass because it wouldn't let me take any provinces and then I got nothing.)

    (Italy's grand reward at the end of the final war as Missouri. Yay...?)

    I think the only war in which I had any relevance was Etheiopia - everywhere else, the Germans and British just swamped everything, so I have learned basically nothing about land combat at all, except that the divisions never seem to go where I wanted and it was all-to-easy to miss-click. So that is kinda disappointing.

    I have learned something about sea and navy combat, sorta. I'm not sure, for all my elite navy, i ever actually fought any decent battles mostly just sinking convoys and the odd ship with aircraft and the subs.

    End game was basically just idly watching the US fall, while making the one cursory naval invasion of the Phillipenes (notably for the only time I launched one, as all the others, the war ended before I even got out to see) and shufting my air units around to provide jet fighter support with my pretty dang good (nearly maxed air XP on upgrades, since I'd barely spent any until Jet I) fighters. (And only a default model for it, too...)

    Think the trouble with HoI4 compared to the other GSG is that the shorter time it takes to play means that you can't dig yourself out of the hole. If you don't get it right right out of the gate (I mean, this was on recruit), you're kind of screwed.

    England or Germany maybe, next time...?

    Also, 4th, really, how does puppet America get to thrid place considering it literally just got formed?

    Still, I suppose Italy being a bit ineffectual and merely humored by Germany and the UK seems sort of... In keeping with the period.

    Throw me onto the "was busy with schoolwork and Fanfics" pile.

    And my fics aren't pony fics, so unless "cute little girl who loves superheroes" is pony related I can't even share what I've been working on.

    Also, is "pony" a verb now? Because my grammar and spelling app keeps telling me that "aren't pony fics" should be "aren't ponied fics" or "aren't ponying fics"

    Well, I was going to post my reaction to MLP:FIM #75, but then I started on a pint of Angry Orchard (Applejack would be proud...) on an empty stomach, and I am now drunk in charge of a keyboard.

    Short version: It was hilarious. From the names of the stars and Spike's box of Soylent Emerald (made of dragons? They need to think their references through...) It has been a couple of giggles every page. Or perhaps that's the cider.

    From the same comic book run, Viz (no, not that one) are also republishing Urusei Yatsura - the right way round, and with a better translation. It's going to be a good weekend.

    Heh maybe, but I'm pretty sure it'd melt before I finished my trip.

    Spectacular.

    So, the whole "Equestria at War" thing could be a while, since I am apparently SO BAD at Hearts of Iron IV that I just basically lost, as Germany (currently considered just about the most OP), on Recruit difficulty (i.e. "easy"), by early 1939. Despite, y'know, doing my usual level of research before and during play.

    I thought U.S.A. was Easy mode in HoI.
    You, who have nothing at all to believe in; to you, whose motto is "money comes first;" who are you, to tell us that our lives have been wasted? That all that we've fought for has turned into dust?

    As of the latest expansion/patch, Germany is absolutely near-unstoppable under AI control, pretty much curb-stomping France/USSR etc. So, I thought "ah, ought to be able to do not a bad job, considering I've Done A Twilight with the research." Nope.

    Which means I'm worse at it than the AI. (Y'know, the thing everyone always complains is too dumb...)

    A gentleman on their forums say that for my second game, I'm doing very well in some areas and that he can see I have done the research, so there's maybe some hope...

    Might be a case of trying to get to the sort of optimal levels far too early, from the sound of what he said.
