Well worn.

It seems like QQ has 5x or so as many users since the switch to Xenforo. Anyone else get that impression too? Dec 12, 2014

      Hey. I shouldn't have to say this, (and it's kind of sad that I have to) but thanks for being rational, reasonable, and well informed (or at least able to learn/debate/discuss) and willing to compromise.

      I wish more forumites were like you.

        Hmm you might raise that point to him about the automaton.

        Though it's also possible that the two ton mech doesn't have any space of the right shape for it. A horse's barrel would allow you to fit a unit of higher volume.

        If it turns out there's no power unit either, then I'm going to go with it definitely being wireless electricity instead of electric computer brain.

        You should add rubber to your list, rubber trees take years to grow, even if we built a giant hothouse for them.

        I also wrote up a small sample list of alloying ingredients for specialty steels earlier

        Hmm don't remember seeing the alloying ingredients list you had.

        Rubber is a bit of a point, but we can get mature rubber trees for that, or produce synthetic substitutes. I don't think we can buy and store enough to effectively permanently fill demand like we can with aluminum for instance. Added it to the list though.

        Nuclear mecha exist, but so do coal fired mecha. Mecha to all appearances don't really require much in the way of power here. For that matter the Russians analyzed his nuclear mecha and deemed them uneconomical. I wouldn't be surprised if the nuclear reactor in the mecha takes up more space than the coal power plant in a normal one given that.

        Plus nuclear reactors don't scale linearly to power output, so you can't get 1/10th the size and 1/10th the power. Increasing size increases power output more than linearly, but this also means they don't shrink nearly as effectively for smaller output.

        While true, its not like an airship requires stupid amounts of power as well. Anyways, we've been arguing in circles and restating the same point; the only thing I've managed to push across was that aircraft have already managed to stay airborne (IRL) for over two months.

        Let's just agree to disagree (for now).

        ah fair enough, honestly i'd just pick the mini one, then work on way to absorb them when their not being used for lewds/floating around in blues boobs to breastfeed clair.

        Can see where your coming from though, was kind of a bummer to have it just thrown out like that due to people deciding to spam math at the QM.

        I don't understand why he decided that in the end. No one was arguing against the skill, just debating numbers for it.

        The mini spell isn't the same at all because it requires Claire to cast it. It's something she decides rather than Blue.

        Also loss of ability to act as inventory is kind of sad too.

        Agreed, was a bit out of the blue that he just decided to scrap it seeing as it would of been so useful.

        Think part of the problem was that people kept talking about making rooms/dimensions out of it when all we needed it for was prisoner and item storage.... then people started planning out the dimensions of a room based on how many people we can absorb then it just went downhill from there.

        If I'm completely honest I came up with the handle like 12ish years ago and have no clue what I was thinking at the time. So seeking significance is probably too much.

        She is fine with her beloved fondling her breasts, but is the sort of biblical level power against anyone else. Stuff like parting oceans via sheer firepower. She can be rather terrifying.

        She's got multiple facets. I mean you can still lay out her character in a few sentences, but as many facets as her is fairly unusual.
