[OOC][Art-planning] 3d-art resources and talk
RE: [OOC][Art-planning] 3d-art resources and talk

Now I know why they've been so nice to us all week.

"Get free 3D-printer licenses for what you owned on July 12", but it's only the models that the store owns outright (as opposed to are brokering the sale of)... and you have to go in and request every single license separately. There's over 18,000 models that they own outright and are still selling. (No, you can't request a 3D-printer license for something that they aren't selling any more.)

They already know what we own. They could have automated this.

At least they're giving us a few weeks to go through the list. I'm almost a quarter of the way through, as of this typing.

And, hey, I'm discovering stuff that I bought (or got for free) years ago and had forgotten about - including a Ford 9N tractor with trailer that could reasonably have been forgotten in a barn at the Old Deitmeier Place. Cue Team RWBY and three-quarters of Team JNPR wondering what the heck it is, and Jaune casually hopping onto it and starting it up. Or not starting it up, because the gas tank's empty.

Seen in the description of Diner Food 4 (while I was going through another batch of items to claim my free 3D-printing licenses):

Quote: DAZ 3D neither condones nor condemns any particular spelling of catsup/ketchup, with the exception of "ketsup" which is clearly wrong. DAZ 3D also acknowledges the rights of people to refer to the condiment as "tomato sauce" or as "red sauce." The diner at which this food is served, spells it "catsup" and no offense is intended to those who spell it differently.
The world's largest catsup bottle is in Collinsville Illinois. If passing by on US Interstate 70, US Route 66 or US Route 40, you should take the 10 minute detour to drive by it. It's really just a water tower shaped and painted like a catsup bottle, it's not actually full of catsup, but it's still neat.

So, if somebody's still thinking of getting their kicks on Route 66, there's something to take a look at.

Still re-discovering stuff I already have... Bob, does the multimedia building at Douglass Gardens include a small theater? Because I have one.

I guess someone here didn't ask the Ketchup Advisory Board in Lake Wobegon, which for a while was known as the Catchup Advisory Board to split the difference.

When life sends enemies to your school disguised as students, and then they trick you into breaking your robot pal, it can be pretty hard to take.  Then monsters attack, and your girlfriend sacrifices herself to save everyone.  The unbearable grief and angst can lead you down a spiral of pain.  That's when you need ketchup the most, with its natural mellowing agents to help you fight the despair that brings grimm closer.  With just a bit of tang, all those problems seem a little less urgent.  Ketchup: for when you need it most.

It does in fact have a home theatre. I wasn't envisioning something quite that elaborate but if that's what our benefactors build, who am I to say no?

Beautiful skeeball machine, that... but looks far too modern to be from the Jersey Shore. Now, if you could make it look like one of these, then we could have perfect accuracy for a trip to Seaside by my residents.

Today's "if you're going to buy those anyway, have this for free as well" item might actually be useful (say, if Washuu-chan supplies a room where the Masaki household can review for their high-school equivalency certificate test): Japanese Neat Classroom.

It was that or a prop set that I don't need immediately and can get for free with a coupon next month.

Oh, yes... If anybody is interested in giving this a try this month, I might be able to get a bit of store credit depending on how you get the software. The base "Daz Studio" software is free but you need to create an account and agree to the resource re-use license before you can download it. Follow this link to create the account and spend at least $10 in their store before August 31 and I get $5 in credit. Which I promise to use on things that will appear in renders for this writing project.

(If anybody does decide to get the free software, PM me and I'll give you some tips on how to get free content to use with it.)
