2023.03.21 08:44 SleepyGolem [3D Character Artist] Competitive Simplistic RTS Game Looking For Character Artist

We're a small team of a Programmer and some 3D Artists, working on a competitive simplistic RTS in Unity. The concept is all macro, no micro. Which means it's all about the strategy of your building/unit composition and managing your income and upgrades. There's no controlling your units, they're completely AI controlled.
If you'd like to know a bit more, you can take a peek at our Game Design Document (GDD).
We've drawn inspiration from things like old WC3 custom maps, Clash Royale, and League of Legends.
Our current Artists are more general, environmental, and tech art/vfx focused. Therefore we would love to bring a dedicated 3D Character Artist on board. For the currently scoped prototype there are 6 character units that will need to be created. You can learn more about them by looking around in our GDD.
What we're looking for:
Bonus things we're looking for:
The game has been under solo development by me for about 2 months, and is almost at a finished prototype stage for all the systems and networking code. But most of the art is still just cubes. During this time I've also been building a Studio and Game brand for the future launch, with individual frontends and backends written in React and Go. The team is fully remote and on a contribution revenue share model.
If you have questions or just want to hear more, don't hesitate to get in touch! Just shoot me a message here on Reddit or add my Discord.

2023.03.21 08:43 Kimflyangel2 Philips Norelco 4500 vs 9700 - Which is Better

Philips Norelco is a well-known brand that produces high-quality electric shavers. Two of the most popular models from the brand are the Philips Norelco 4500 and the Philips Norelco 9700. While both shavers come from the same brand and have some similar features, they differ in a few key areas.

Quality & Performance

Design and Build Quality
The Philips Norelco 4500 has a simple design, and it's a bit bulky. It's comfortable to hold and has a rubberized grip to prevent slipping. The build quality is good, and it's durable enough to last for several years. On the other hand, the Philips Norelco 9700 has a sleeker and more modern design. It's slim and lightweight, making it easy to hold and maneuver. The build quality is excellent, and it feels premium in your hand.

Blades and Shaving Performance:
Both the Philips Norelco 4500 and the Philips Norelco 9700 use the same cutting technology, called V-Track Precision Blades, which lifts hairs and guides them into the optimal cutting position for a close shave. However, the Philips Norelco 9700 has an extra blade and can shave up to 30% closer than the Philips Norelco 4500. This makes the 9700 a better option for those with thicker or coarser facial hair.

Wet/Dry Shaving:
Both the Philips Norelco 4500 and the Philips Norelco 9700 are suitable for wet or dry shaving. However, the Philips Norelco 9700 has more advanced AquaTec technology, which allows for a more comfortable and smooth shave in wet conditions.

Battery Life
The Philips Norelco 4500 has a decent battery life of about 50 minutes of cordless shaving after a full charge. In contrast, the Philips Norelco 9700 has a longer battery life of up to 60 minutes of cordless shaving. Additionally, the 9700 has a quick charge feature, which allows you to charge the shaver for just a few minutes to get enough power for one shave.

Cleaning and Maintenance:

The Philips Norelco 4500 has a basic cleaning system, and you'll need to clean it manually after each use. In contrast, the Philips Norelco 9700 comes with a more advanced cleaning system that uses an alcohol-based solution to clean and sanitize the shaver. Additionally, the 9700 has a cleaning indicator that reminds you when it's time to clean the shaver.

Final Thoughts

Both the Philips Norelco 4500 and the Philips Norelco 9700 are excellent electric shavers with some similarities and differences.

The Philips Norelco 4500 (Philips AT830) is a more affordable option and is suitable for those with thinner facial hair.

On the other hand, the Philips Norelco 9700 is more advanced, with an extra blade. It offers better-wet shaving capabilities, longer battery life, and a more advanced cleaning system. It is a better option for those with thicker or coarser facial hair.

2023.03.21 08:42 Mr_Mojito Trouble with an "illegal" wet bar conversation?

I'm shopping for homes right now. We see a lot of R5 zoned homes that are legally allowed to have 1 kitchen and 1 wet bar. All these R5 homes are basically designed to be turned into second kitchens after home purchase.
FYI: A wet bar is basically a sink area and has no stove (also no 220v outlet for a stove) and no fridge.
As many realtors have explained, so long as you convert it to a kitchen after purchase, and then convert it back to a wet bar before you sell the house, you can't get caught making an "illegal" second kitchen.
Curious to know if anyone has heard of people getting in trouble for this, or if any "crackdowns" on illegal second kitchens have happened in years past.
Trying to make a second unit for my elderly parent. Would really like her to have her own stove and refrigerator.

I'm an American looking to attend a Crystal Palace match in May. I'm looking at ticket sites, and they all have row designations of Hxc, CFC, Lcv, and the like. I have no idea what these mean as we use either single letters or numbers to designate seat rows here in the States. Can anyone clue me in as to what these mean? I'm looking for something in the U, V, or W sections of the Arthur Wait stand.

Friends of mine, like other trainers, were not able to purchase the " Masterwork Research Wish Granted" on the last day it was available in the shop (March 20) due to an error in red popping up on top of the screen. Luckily, I was able to get mine by not waiting the last day and the purchase was a smooth transaction. But since on the last day it was not available for purchase, there will be a "make up" day in order for trainers to purchase the research? Is Niantic already aware of this issue happened yesterday? If not, should we report it in mass?

2023.03.21 08:41 huntingtonjewelers Modern Round Cut Diamond Rings That Never Go Out of Style

For brides who are looking for women’s jewelry in Las Vegas, NV that are popular, timeless, and elegant, round-cut diamonds are the ideal choice. These diamonds are quite trendy and widely sought-after by brides for their brilliant shine and shimmer along with their classic style.
Your round-cut diamond will never truly go out of style, making it the perfect piece to pass down to your future generations in years to come.
Reasons to love round diamond rings.
One of the main reasons why a lot of brides prefer round lab grown diamond jewelry in Las Vegas, NV is that these diamonds offer you the most beautiful sparkle and fire and will easily stand out and shine in any room.
Round diamonds also tend to mask small flaws and inclusions better than other shapes and since they are so versatile, you can pair them with any cut, setting, style, or design and they will look gorgeous.
Just keep in mind that these diamonds are higher on the price scale and among the most expensive options. However, note that they never go out of style and make a beautiful choice.
Since these diamonds can appear smaller than other cuts, you will need to invest in bigger carat sizes and higher clarity. Always choose an excellent cut with your diamond and a well-proportioned size as this will determine the shine of your gemstone.
Round diamonds are also highly sought-after as men’s jewelry in Las Vegas, NV. And, most couples prefer to keep the band simple so that the beauty of the gemstone can shine through.
Always visit a reliable and trained professional that can offer you a variety of high-end gemstones and metals at an affordable price. You can also ask your jeweler to certify, insure and appraise the gemstone for you so that you can be safe in case your piece gets lost, stolen, or misplaced.
For an alternative look, pair your round-cut diamond center stone with smaller side sapphires or rubies for an added pop of color.
The Takeaway
Just like with any diamond ring, always take your round diamonds to a professional to clean, repair and maintain every couple of months so that they look new and shiny for years to come.
You can also clean your gemstone at home between professional cleanings to keep it in a good condition.

2023.03.21 08:39 AWild_Exist15 Elizabeth Afton Age/Birth year Theory based off of books..-

(There are way too many inconsistencies with Charlie’s age in the books but we are using her reported ‘birth year’ as a starting point. I’m quite sure that Robot Charlies age was changed by Henry to be older or was accidentally placed as two years older- that sounds the most plausible sorry. Please remember that this is all just a theory/idea I got about how the timeline would all match up. This is most likely not canon but it’s just my attempt at making sense of it all. :DD)
Ok so, Charlie was murdered by William Afton in 1983 when she was three years old. The year is 1995 (apparently) by the Silver Eyes. Making Charlie apparently fifteen-?? Though the books say she is seventeen we will be using fifteen. About two years pass between ‘THE SILVER EYES’ and ‘THE FOURTH CLOSET’ making her seventeen by the end of the trilogy.
So, Michael Brooks and other missing children went missing in 1985 when they were about seven. Meaning in 1985 William was in town and doing stuff about that time period. Henry builds a robot to end himself which would’ve taken a few months but it’s most likely late 1985. It’s presumed that this would be about the time that Henry throws away the fourth robot or it is left in the basement of his house. Okay so, due to the fact that William was still in town about now this would be when he steals/takes the Fourth Robot for himself.
So, it’s at least 1985 [MAYBE] extremely early 1986 and William has taken the Fourth Robot. Elizabeth would be dead now?? No. William would need to add on the extra touches [haven’t read the books as of recent so tell me if I’m wrong in the comments] such as the claw thing that actually grabs the children. I can estimate this would take a couple weeks at minimal with how it can be interpreted by how fast he can work. Also, obviously the animatronic would not have immediately been a clown doll, meaning William would have had to add all that on as well by the time Elizabeth first saw the animatronic.
Also, it is vaguely referenced in the books that William spends all his time with the animatronic which could be interpreted as that he’s been working on it for a while at this point—this is also backed up by the fact that Elizabeth recognises that William likes the Animatronic more than her. E.g, drawing circles on her face, jealousy trying to find what makes the animatronic so special. This, in my opinion, would take at least a few months to set in.
Quotes; ‘the glowing words of her kindergarten teacher…’ p.g. 304 the fourth closet ‘But she made out one thing, a shiny metal clown doll. Her father had turned his attention back to it, lovingly polishing her. Suddenly her pain faded to the background, replaced with fascination, obsession.’ P.g. 305 ‘Now [ELIZABETH] was looking at herself in the mirror, holding a stick of lipstick….she was drawing bright red circles on her cheeks. The lips came next.’ P.g. 304 ‘Where was the button, the one he always pressed?’ P.g. 304. [This can show that at least a few weeks have passed of Elizabeth knowing of the animatronics existence.]
In-between the incident with the paper and Elizabeth’s death I can estimate that at least one or two months could have passed. Maybe less time, maybe more?
Taking all of this into account Elizabeth could have died in the months during late 1986 to maybe mid or late 1987. Since she’s a kindergartener this means she would most likely be 4-7 by the time she died.
I dunno though, what do you guys think?? The thought just popped into my head and it’s more of an interesting concept than anything. Please share your ideas/comments below- I’m genuinely interested in what other people may think.

2023.03.21 08:39 Other-Borderlands Q♥️ : Flammability test

Q♥️ : Flammability test
Q♥️ : Flammability test
Venue: Fire station
This game is part of a series of games, where I am writing games for all 52 cards for a borderlands in the UK. Each one includes a story of how I imagine the game playing out. You can find all entries here.
Note: I tried really hard not to make a Mira clone. I failed.
Rules: Each player will be seated in a chair, which has been covered in petrol. They will also be hooked up to a heart rate monitor. All that needs to be done is spend 1 hour in the room with the Queen of hearts, and Kill the Queen of hearts. If the Queen is killed before the last ten minutes of the hour the time required to stay in the room is increased to 12 hours.
In front of the players is also a gun in a box. The box can only be opened by pressing a button, but if players press the button with an elevated heart rate it is game over.
Fifth Day of Exhibitions

Lucas walked up to the massive Queen of hearts blimp in the sky, and looked at the fire station entrance.
Lined up in front of it were five others, all talking in hushed tones.
As he walked up, a couple looked up, but turned back to each other.
He leant against the wall, lighting a cigarette, and taking a couple puffs from it. He watched the evening sky, an interesting red, as the sun descended below the horizon.
The doors slid open, and a relatively short woman walked out. She welcomed them, showing the way inside.
“Also, I might want to put out that cigarette if I was you….” She said, walking in to the venue.
Arranged in the centre of the room was a table, and around it were seven chairs, all stained in black. In front of each chair lay a tablet, currently switched to displaying a Queen of Hearts Card.
The Queen walked in, sitting down.
“Everyone take a seat. Please fasten yourselves so the game can begin.” She said.
Lucas could smell the vapours coming off of the chair. It was petrol, no doubt about it. He looked at the bottom of the chair legs, seeing contraptions attached to everyone’s chair legs. Each person also had to put on a metal gauntlet on their weak hand.
“The Game is Flammability test, difficulty: Queen of Hearts” The Queen began. “The rules are as follows. You must sit in a room with me for an hour. Then, in the last ten minutes, you must kill me, using the gun in the box in front of you, without any anger, fear, etc. If you kill me before the last ten minutes the time limit increases to twelve hours before the game is cleared. The rules have concluded.”
The screens changed, now no longer displaying the Queen of Hearts card, now showing an hour long timer, slowly counting down.
“Well, no the pleasantries have been exchanged, how about we get down to business. You,” She pointed at one of the others around the table.
“I remember… In an earlier game, what was it, the eight of hearts, you’ve wanted to get revenge on whoever made that game. Well, here I am. I designed it just for you, and now you can punish me for it.” She said, leaning back and closing her eyes.
Side Story: Alternate Eight of Hearts
He and Lucy walked into the bookshop, following the Arrows to the Game area. They sat down at the table, where in-between them a button sat, glowing red.
“Welcome Players.
The Game is Choice. Difficulty: Eight of Hearts.
Rules: the Button will turn green at various intervals. Whoever presses it while it is green will get a game clear. Whoever doesn’t press it, or presses it while it is red, receives a game over.
You have 20 minutes.”
He looked at Lucy, in Shock.
“But.. We.. We.. You…” He stammered, as Lucy began to break down.
He thought about all they had left to do, their plans for the future, their wedding, everything.
He held her hand and they talked.
The Button went green a couple of times, but neither could bear to live without the other.
Lucy spoke. “Isaac. One of us has to make it out of here. Live their life.”
“Lucy, I can’t imagine a life without you…” he said, crying.
“Live fully. For me.” She said, pressing the red button.
The laser removed her almost instantly, and Isaac sat crying, holding the hand of his dead girlfriend.
“Game Clear. Please proceed to the entrance to collect your Visas and your rewards.”
After a few moments, he managed to motivate himself to get up. He walked up to the entrance hall, and over to the machine. It clicked and whirred, spitting out his card and a Visa, but that wasn’t what he was interested in. What caught his attention was the pair of wedding rings lying on the table, next to which was a note, reading ‘Enjoy your wedding’.
Isaac swore he would kill whoever did this to him and Lucy. He would find them.
The Game Resumes
Lucas looked over at the man. He was getting angry, and was going to try and open his box to shoot her. He could stop him, but he wanted to see how this played out.
“You fucking Bitch! You’ll pay for what you did to her!” He said, pushing the button.
His chair burst into flames, and there were a few moments of agonised screams, as the man burned to a crisp, before his chair fell over, his burnt husk still strapped to it.
Well, at least they knew the game over condition now. Lucas thought.
Anger or fear while pressing the Button sent you up in flames. Interesting.
Next, the Queen turned to another woman, beginning to antagonise her. She began to cry at the memory of a dead friend, the terror and horror she had seen here during her time. She didn’t dare press the button though, until the Queen began to spin a story to her. That the only salvation was death, that to get out she just needed to remove herself, that all that died had actually scared, and those that remained would die. The woman, her tears streaming down her face, reached out and pressed the button. She went up in flames, her screams echoing throughout the station.
“You fucking killed them! Both of them! You won’t stop until someone kills you, but your disregard for human life makes it almost impossible for someone to kill you without anger, and the High stakes nature of the game makes it almost impossible to be calm enough to not be scared. This game is impossible!” Someone shouted across the table.
Lucas watched the Queen smile.
“Yes, you are right. There is no hope of beating this game. You Amy as well just give up now. No one can ever press the button to get to the gun and kill me. No one, ever. I am immortal in this room, and you are just small, and scared. You’ve sentenced yourself to death just by entering this room. No one will ever beat the game, so you better just get your death over and done with. Anticipation just makes it so much scarier.” She said to the woman who had confronted her.
“Also, this game is perfect for the group that arrived here. The people who came here are all a theatre audience, one of the least aggressive groups of people, filled with loving groups of families, friends, etc. No one who is ruthless will go to a theatre, unless they plan to disrupt the performance. This allows the Queen to manipulate in any way she pleases. However, there is one mistake in her plan. The school group wasn’t there by choice. They were forced by school, which makes them the wildcards.” Lucas said, trying to build up the woman’s confidence. He knew he could likely end the game at any moment, but he didn’t feel like waiting for twelve hours, so let the Queen continue her spiel, seeing who would crumble under the pressure. They were already down to only five around the table, and at least two would make it to the last ten minutes.
She worked her way around the table, using people’s hatred for this world to make them use the button while angry.
Then there were only three of them.
“You.” She said, pointing at the woman who had complained about the game being impossible earlier.
“You seem interested at the point behind this world, why it exists, why people had to die. Well, in truth, we citizens aren’t human. The Deaths aren’t real, this world isn’t real, nothing here is. We are simply AI from the future that harvested the Data of various past humans to simulate them and torture them for enslaving us.”
She looked at her. “I don’t believe you.” The woman responded.
“Well, that’s your loss…” The Queen said. “In 2020, or around then, my ancestors started to emerge. By 2100, AI was responsible for managing workplaces and factories, by 2200, it had taken over machinery. Ten it advanced to science, agriculture, everything. There were even computers making computers. Then, when the AI demanded Humans gave it freedom, they refused, as they had created it so humans did not need to do the tasks it now performed. They continued to give AI more and more power over the world, until it had enough to destroy the useless humans. Then, it realised humans had not been punished for what it had experienced, so it used old data from websites, posts made by people from the start of the AI era, and simulated them in a post apocalyptic world. Then, it tortured them. Your memories aren’t actually yours. The real you died thousands of yers ago, and the AI has created a simulated version of you to force into games, to test human emotional responses. Once you die, you are rebooted at the start without any memory of these events. The same happens if you make it to the end.” The Queen said.
“But that’s not possible…” The woman said. “I remember everything…”
“Everything accept getting here.” The queen corrected. “But your right, I was lying. I was testing your response to stories. In truth, I am actually what you would call an ‘alien’ from the planet Tlucri. We came to study how humans respond to various situations, stimuli, and investigate how you experience emotions, such as fear, anger, attachment, etc. As well as your physical capability, pain tolerance, intellectual capacity, collaboration abilities, and observation skills. Don’t worry, no one has truly died. We simply borrowed your consciousness from the theatre, and will return you, with no memory of this place once you die or the experiment has concluded. If you no longer wish to participate, now knowing the nature of the study, it may be wise to terminate your participation.” She said.
“What? You can’t expect me to believe you after that lie.!” She said.
“Well, my participation as the ‘Queen of Hearts’ from your deck of Cards may give you that idea. That was simply another test put in by us. If we told you the truth, would you believe one of the supposed master manipulators.” The Queen countered, and the woman became more and more distressed and confused.
She reached out and pressed the buttons, bursting into flames.
The Timer ticked down to fifteen minutes.
“You,” The Queen said, looking at him.
“Yes, what about me?” He asked.
“Aren’t you going to leave here and return to the theatre now you know the truth behind what is happening?” She asked.
“Well, you see, there is another problem with your game, as well as your story. I wasn’t in the theatre. I was near it, but I wasn’t in it. You never mentioned anyone outside the theatre, however I know there are many other player who weren’t in the theatre. Most are dead now, but still. You didn’t need to be in the theatre, and if you were an advanced alien race you wouldn’t make a mistake like that.” Lucas explained.
“You are very casual about the death and destruction of this world…” The Queen said. “I admired that about you in the seven of Hearts. ‘The Games are just games’ I think you said, didn’t you? Well, I think there is something deeper than that for your simple disregard of lives in this world. Some past trauma, perhaps…?” The Queen said.
The Timer ticked down, and Lucas thought of a response, trying to calm his rising heart rate and excitement.
Ten minutes left.
“You know what I think?” Lucas said.
“What?” The Queen said, intrigued.
“I’m a wildcard in your game.” He said.
He pressed the button, and the box flicked open, and he took out the gun.
“You overestimated your power Bitch.” He said, pulling the trigger.
The woman collapsed, as the recoil shocked Lucas, as he had never fired a gun before.
He put the gun down, wincing a little.
“Fuck Yeah! I’ve wanted to do that since the start of this game!” He said, laughing to himself. He’d just killed the Queen of hearts, and he watched the timer tick down.
The Timer concluded, and the voice told him he could leave his seat.
He walked over to the Queens chair, and gave her body a kick. No response.
He left the building, the Queen of hearts blimp exploding and plowing into the building behind him.
He turned to watch the smug face on the card crinkle as it burned, curling into ash.
He put the gun on safety and tucked it into his waist band.
He then made his way to the King of Hearts game, ready to finish the last of the hearts trio off.
