    General What would you do with a billion dollars?

    I would hire a development team to make the best videogame for the brain that's both challenging, plays at your pace, and has good aesthetics and storytelling. I would hire the Skullgirls Animators, Lauren Faust, The guys who made Nes Battletoads, The guys who invented DnD if they are alive, The guy who made Devil Daggers, The Co-op developers on Starcraft 2 and the StarCraft/Brood War developers, Some of the guys who worked on Doom (the recent one), and the people who made Panoramical. And some random games with good sound design like Donkey Kong Country or Mario sorta sound design so it keeps people in and so the full spectrum of sound will be good all the time anyways. I would give them each a percent of the total gains from sales plus a normal wage for the work they tend to do. The team will be organized so you can put up ideas because those are alot of creators with alot of good ideas potentially and we need everyone to be able to speak up. Oh and I am on it too, the game has to be enjoyable and something I would actually play and I would be the one providing the theory on maximizing it for the mind. The game would be totally aesthetic, have large variety, it recognizes the speeds at which you press which buttons and how fast/often you use new abilities and old abilities as time goes on in each game mode to try and understand your learning speed and current skills so it can provide a lightly stronger challenge each second for you to adapt to. I want it to also account for perception skills. Like theres a room of 80 objects you have 20 seconds before a bad guy blocks the door n gets you or something *subject to change or parallel or similar scenarios* and then they notice based on the brightness, where your eyes tend to linger, which items you had a preference for visually, which items you had a preference for based on description and which ones based on use. Then it encourages you to use lesser used abilities more over time, til eventually you are doing every skill at peak level and your peak keeps rising due to muscle memory and the game having an effectively constant difficulty increase that it knows you can handle. And each playthrough will differ because your skills will differ and based on your skills there are different aesthetics. And the story will keep you engaged with just plain enjoyable moments cuz of Faust, humor of the 'toads', badassery of doom. And then the 'toads' help to employ true skill oriented mechanical variety. Then it has an rts trippy aspect in first person somehow. Like in missions you teleport to locations, can posses units, can spawn units of many varieties each with odd niche roles. And the game constantly changes so you need to relearn the abilities relearn what units there are and what structures, relearn enemy units, enemy unit behavior strats change based on a spectrum and 3-d graph determined on the aesthetic alterations which are determined based on your skills. But so you do not miss out on anything it needs to be like an evergrowing spectrum that branches out so you don't miss any unique combinations if you go from 0 skill to mastered. Which means it should be independent from a difficulty calculator. And then eventually you may realize different aesthetics mean you are getting too comfortable or not comfortable enough with certain strats. The story will be about exploring different perspectives and strategies and dealing with alternate strategies for which there is an infinite spectrum of. And the game should be graphically simplistic enough so that more of the ram can be used for predictive difficulty on the changing system or it'll be really imbalanced, and it'd require alot of playtesting with people of various controls and skills and game histories. It should be intellectual gameplay, whilst skill oriented gameplay (think faster/outplay oriented or tactics, And clever technical strategy or mindgames oriented etc) And one philosophy for skill gain is, the game's speed can change throughout time. Slower to 50% all the way to faster x% based on skill level and frame-rate. Spatial distortions. Contrast changes, color variability, camouflage intensity of enemies (transparency and camo patterns) The game should be trippy for the highest skill levels like the entire game ate 20 tabs of acid and a pound of magic shrooms and have a breathing tube on where you perpetually inhale dmt and because you slowly improved at it over the course of 10,000 hours the game is eventually entirely unrecognizable to noobs but you from muscle memory, reflexes, and subconscious recognition skills and abstract thinking can habitually deduce everything that's going on constantly even though the enemies are shapeshifting entirely once per frame while having distortions and color changes camouflages and transparencies brightness and textures all at the same time, including the environment shifting constantly as well. Someone next to you be like 'wtf is that an indoor pool that turned into a whale and wishes it were a clown or something?' Naw man, that's a fireman I spawned. And I would make it for VR. (lol on other consoles too of course, but on vr 10k hours in would be sadistic lol) ... And now that I think about it the second thing I would do is hire people to help with a thing to try and get psychedelics legalized because studies say they grow brain cells so can increase rate of learning like when they used it on mice. So its actually good for you. So that's where alot of my money would go to as well. Then I would hire people to have plants genetically modified to contain all non-addictive nootropics (brain enhancers) and psychedelics, and so it has dna from weeds and grasses and cacti so it spreads like wildfire and can survive in harsh climates. Then I would visit the world. Then provide funding for stuff to keep people young forever. And of course find ways to make more money doing other stuff I like so I can keep doing weird ambitions with my money. Perhaps make tons of expansions for the game idea.

    Is Pinkie now 110% hateable because of Yakity Sax?

    That was a bad episode? lol
  4. Them being forced to give up their dreams goals ambitions desires responsibilities, to participate in a school which is a full time job. I feel like they broke character too much so even if they got development its going to contradict writer to writer and whenever Hasbro steps in, making it a moot sentiment and a wasted pursuit. Maybe they should've been episodic like the original PPG. That's why they liked S1 and S2 more than any other season. Well, and S3 killed it being random and a half a season etc.
  5. Cute Twi pic Sparky @TwilySparky Do you have a higher resolution? Personally I see everything involving the school as Dash quitting the wonderbolts, Rarity quitting her boutiques, AJ quitting her farm, Fluttershy taking a job involving many eyes being on her, etc. Its clearly an executive marketing decision, so I am not going to be for it. It causes way too many plot holes and out of character moments. G5 is going to need to happen soon anyways. I just worry the executives are going all in on psychological priming for the audience too much instead of trying to make a good show.

    Hypnotize yourself to be a pony, links included

    Mythbusters lies sometimes though, their episode on subliminal messages the guy scratched his nose which is what they said, then they said it doesn't count because of x y z, when it totally counted, they just don't want to cultivate a paranoid audience or they'd end up testing if bpa makes frogs gay or something.

    Most polarizing character in MLP?

    Its just the ones overprotective of 'MY Twilight Sparkle' and a newcomer becoming the new fish out of water type, and she was a villain and replaced twilight it got them salty. Sorta similar to Angel or Trixie people didn't like at first.

    What Does Religion Mean To You?

    The religion of communism (many glorified their leaders as god-like in their propaganda) Yielded tens of millions of deaths.

    Cockroach milk

    It sounds rather disgusting yes. But people already eat snails, frogs legs, ghost peppers, drugs, alcohol, cheese which is cultured from all manner of things, animal organs cooked including brains. There was some expensive type of coffee from when a Jaguar or something poops out the coffee beans then they process it. All kinds of nasty stuff. Blood sausage or pie.
  13. This is an example of the thought process one can use to reach a conclusion with knowledge we already have, but did not think to consider. It just takes some time and patience. If the brain can store massive quantities of data, why do most people not consciously recall it all? Its because people do not try. All you need is spare time, and recognition of an almost order of operations of logic. In this example I start by asking a question that most would think has no definite objective answer. Then I keep going through a self-critical process of proposals based on reflections and the knowledge it brings to the foreground that I already had but did not know I had. So to simplify. 1. 'unknowable' question 2. reflection 2.a knowledge from reflection 2.b applying the knowledge into the equation 2.c rule it out if it doesn't objectively answer anything 3. repeat 2 til it does objectively answer something 4. add this into the equation permanently 5 repeat 2-5 as needed til the first question is answerable. 6. The answer and its objectively true within the assumptions that 'the world is real'.

    What will Discord do once Fluttershy passes away?

    There will always be more friends to make, eventually the globe would be overpopulated with too many ponies, they would need to travel to new planets or worlds to prevent suffering. That or they could have a touching moment where they both die of old age or such. I would prefer the immortality route. Because curiosity and such.

    What will Discord do once Fluttershy passes away?

    If he made Fluttershy immortal she wouldn't accept it because them most of her friends would die anyways it'd be very hard on her. If she dies he would easily go back in the past to visit her, or he would try n hibernate for the rest of eternity. Maybe a past version or alt version of himself would try convincing himself to cheer up. Maybe he would then take a stroll n see more ponies that remind him of Fluttershy then eventually try n hang out with some, then it depends how ponies treat him next, for what he decides to do. Perhaps he would be grateful for getting to know her. Perhaps alot of things. Perhaps he would want to die with her.

    Your opinion on Otherkin?

    People with too much spare time with dogs when they were kids so picked up some dog social behavior and feel doggo-like, grow up as spiritual people and decide doggo it is.
  17. SugarCoatxMarblePie

    You know, for kids!

    Topic is self explanatory lol. I prefer to keep it mlp related but do what you want.
  18. Made this a while ago but never decided to finish it, so I left it as is. I would love to do this for the Woody n Buzz fight scene also. Its my second try at sony vegas pro 13.

    What caused you to doubt your faith in the past?

    I am curious to try and see how it is for others. I operate in a specific manner, and others I realize may not be the same as me so I don't want to assume too much next time I get into a conversation. So I want to know what sort of times have you questioned or doubted your faith. It can be faith of anything, not just religion. I am more curious about how people keep their faith, than how they lose it, but in response to whatever it is that caused a doubt or questioning of it. I am curious at a technical level, like what exactly went through your head? What stresses and pressures were evaluated? What caused you to make your decision, or to re-realize it was true?

    MLP card game

    I am looking for Party of One and Nightmare Star Solar Flare. Those are probably the most difficult cards I want to find. Also I have alot of packs opened from Defenders of Equestria, High Magic, and Equestrian Odysseys, I am not sure of those cards which is very good(for the non-foils anyways), there are hundreds to compare and idk how to play the game fully yet.
