Lego Tanks

So, Levi linked me to a YouTube video of some guy’s Lego Starcraft tank: That’s pretty cool, and I’d love to know how he’s doing the articulation. Lego’s come a long way since I was a kid. However, I wish to note that my Lego tank, while somewhat more rudimentary, does contain pirates: Also, legopiratetank.jpg may be my awesomest filename ever.

To quote myself: Man, CC2 is SO 2007. I bet I could get way better looking maps in CC3. Probably a template that doesn’t make me want to claw my eyes out, too. Most notably, I can do way better building graphics than that with CD3. Also must get trees that do not suck horrendously. So I went and did that thing. Or rather, I did something very much like it a year or two ago and never got back to it, so I just updated a bunch and ran with it, which I’ll talk a bit about with shiny pictures below the jump.

Welcome to the new home of The Ravings of Demented Rabbits, now with 100% more shiny new domain name! After close to ten years of living on Samson’s servers in one form or another, it’s now time to venture forth into the brave new world of web hosting, which appears to have changed a very great deal since I last looked at it in the 1990s. A couple housekeeping notes: – If you were a registered user back in the day, you’ll need to re-register by using the Log In link up top, then clicking the Register link on the page it brings you to. Likewise, you’ll probably need to re-enable your avatar if you had one. WordPress isn’t so […]

Something I’ve been meaning to mention since the move, and the arrival of my Amazon order today brought it back to mind: When I moved, I sent about 30 boxes of stuff via USPS. Didn’t figure it would be a problem, since I’d shipped or had shipped 10 or 15 boxes in the past, and they all showed up in pristine condition. Of this latest batch, let’s say 4/5 of them arrived in some kind of damaged state, ranging from holes in the cardboard to complete retaping and plastic bands around the box. On average, most of these boxes were a foot cubed, 20-30 pounds but for the few that were 40ish. No big deal. As I say, I’ve done […]
