So do you want a steady update schedule or for updates to come out when finished? by Mr_StephenB in starcitizen

[–]MuggyFuzzball 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Repeating exactly what I said. There are no guantees in game dev and I didn't say they did.

Yes it is, and that's exactly what CIG devs indicated that it would mean for the PU in Spectrum chat before it was available. Please don't pretend like you know something others don't and then try to make an argument out of it.

Actual ship factories in the PU, could this mean it is happening? by tom5598 in starcitizen

[–]MuggyFuzzball 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah seriously, people reach for some ridiculous conclusions when seeing concept art in games. It's a showcase of art, not a feature promise. This literally tells us nothing about the gameplay, other than to provide a sense of scale for the ship.

Having the Delta patcher should have meant that we'd be receiving more frequent smaller patches, but update schedules have remained slow and damaging to the population of the PU. They need to release content as soon as it's ready to go. Enough of these twice a year updates, CIG. Get your shit together.

How Gamers Killed Ultima Online's Virtual Ecology | War Stories | Ars Technica by suppow in Gaming4Gamers

[–]MuggyFuzzball 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I don't know about successfully, but afaik, Mortal Online's ecology model is similar. The problem being, same as with Ultima Online, the player isn't naturally aware that the system is working at all in this way.

This bunny made his own trail by grazing the grass by anxious_ibex in mildlyinteresting

Nice try OP but that's obviously a patch of dead grass, with a rabbit just happening to be sitting close enough to it.

Back in elementary school i had a crush on the USA women's hockey goalie. Congrats on gold Maddie! by Roxxiga in pics

[–]MuggyFuzzball 3 points4 points  (0 children)

When I did the same thing in 8th grade with my crush, minus the flowers, she determined she was gay and nolonger into guys at that very moment. She had only boyfriends up until that point, and to her credit, she's still gay today so I guess she meant it!

Pawn found inside of Queen by WantedOnAVoyage in mildlyinteresting

[–]MuggyFuzzball 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That wasn't even my first thought. I immediately realized the radius of the pawn's neck was far too wide to fit into that shaft before it was broken. You can even see it bending a bit because of the tight fit

Trump needed a cheat sheet to remember to show compassion and empathy for school shooting victims by TunnelSnake88 in EnoughTrumpSpam

[–]MuggyFuzzball 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Have you noticed yet how cheating and deceiving people eventually has lead to his whole administration crumbling? His lies weren't sustainable. Half of his closest friends have been dropping like flies to Mueller's investigation. It's a matter of time.

He lied his way into the white house, and now it's a matter of when, not if.

Do NOT buy Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 on the PSN sale. The servers are down and you can not play the game. by foolykuri in Games

[–]MuggyFuzzball 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Omg, i didn't believe it at first until I googled it just now, but the 3d art and textures look incredibly amateur, as if it were meant for mobile and done by a small indie team. Your average freelance 3d artist would do so much better.

Everything from the character models, environment props, animations, etc. look terrible. What happened?!

[2/21/18] The Border Patrol Is Going Deeper and Deeper Into the U.S. Mainland and Running Wild by deathbychocobo in Bad_Cop_No_Donut

[–]MuggyFuzzball 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes and no, I lived in Michigan until very recently, and we had a border patrol station in our town, which was really odd being that it wasn't anywhere near anything that might require their presence - their officers apparently travel as far as 130 miles from the station.

Anyway, never once have I ever seen them officially interact with anyone in the area. Never seen them pull anyone over or stop anyone on the street.

Repost - Price list of a design firm in Berlin. - I want to work there. by punkonater in graphic_design

[–]MuggyFuzzball 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was mostly joking. It's silly not to be flexible, but from my experience, firms tend to be a mix of hourly and set prices, while individuals charge by hour only.

As someone who hires freelance, I'd think you were a sucker if you didn't charge per hour. Also I probably wouldn't hire you because I'd think you didn't have experience in this field since you do things differently :P

User shares screenshot of a Twitter DM with the company TurboTax, alerting them to the fact that their ad was posted on T_D, they then removed the ad and are looking into the situation further by pancake__pancake in bestof

[–]MuggyFuzzball 8 points9 points  (0 children)

T_D isn't a preferred demographic for TurboTax. Their company and brand doesn't want to be associated with the reputation T_D is known for, which is alt-right racism, fake political news, and Russian propaganda.

Why are so many coney islands run by Greeks? Why are so many gas stations run by middle easterns? by mcrfreak78 in NoStupidQuestions

[–]MuggyFuzzball 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh yes.. hah that's odd to imagine someone who doesn't know about A&W restaurants. But yes, A&W rootbeer comes from A&W, the fast food restaurant chain. It's their branded rootbeer, which they are known for. A&W restaurants are all over the United States.

[–]MuggyFuzzball 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I live in Michigan. I just assumed they were everywhere until this thread. They're at least everywhere in Michigan. Food is mediocre but they're very popular.

I don't think they are franchised either. Just a bunch of similar restaurants called Coney Island. It's more like a genre - in the same vein as Chinese, Italian, or fast food.

I was also surprised to find many A&W's don't serve hotdogs outside of Michigan. They are a staple food at Michigan A&W's. Can't imagine A&W without hotdogs.

My father arresting a suspect, Detroit - 1989 by MuggyFuzzball in OldSchoolCool

I know! I've been looking for that shirt design for years, but have never come across it. I guess that was a period in time before "Just Chillin" was popularized as a phrase.

When I had asked my father about this picture years ago, he remembered that this man was a friendly guy that he kind of felt bad about having to arrest.

This was a joint sting operation with local police that this suspect was a part of.

Several! He's never been one to embellish a story, and has stories ranging from his time in Vietnam during the war, to the narcotics division on the Detroit Police force.

He has had a very storied career with the DEA after 25 years there, that ended when his firearm and gear were stolen from his car while stopping to get coffee one morning on the way to work. Being part of the old guard, he was nudged out of the DEA during its reformation in the early 2000's in the wake of 9/11.

He transferred to the Federal Air Marshal Service, and served as the Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the Detroit division, and (iirc) was present during the hectic incident with the underwear bomber on Flight 253.

He also assisted with airport security during Katrina, and flew with the Olympic athletes to Beijing China.

As for the DEA itself, I'm trying not to disclose anything that I think the government might have a problem with, even though he is long retired - I'm still paranoid I might say something to get him into trouble.

But he did serve 2 years undercover in Pakistan for the DEA, and told me that whenever they'd seize some narcotics (cocaine in this case), they'd have to check it into evidence at the local Pakistani police station, and by the following day, it would always be gone - the local police would take and resell it. Back then, Pakistan also had the largest illegal gun market in the world, if it's not still true.

Because of government crack-downs and reorganization, you can imagine today's DEA is a lot less exciting than that of the 70's, 80's, and early 90's. No more cowboy tactics.

I know there are people here on Reddit who have a bitter disregard for anyone associated with the DEA or the War on Drugs, but my father was one of the good ones. He knew it was wrong to persecute people for recreational marijuana use, even during that time-period. His team was focused on harder drugs and violence coming from South America.

He worked with, and knew the real Javier Peña that the character was based on from the Netflix original series, 'Narcos', and served time in Peru during the hunt for Pablo Escobar.
