2023.03.26 13:35 RikkitikkitaviBommel Stained glass in set design

During the episodes in the fort we see multiple characters contemplating whatever is on their mind in front of a stained glass window of Alina with the stag antlers and holding light.
Beautifully done as set design and storytelling wise. Practically I wonder how they did that so quickly and why because making such a window takes a long ass time with modern tools let alone with canon tools. And we start out with Alina not exactly being popular so this window was either commisioned during season one in the very brief moment when she had the antlers and the fold hadn't been expanded yet. Or Nikolai commisioned it in the time he was back, engaged and before they were running for their lives. And it's a very specific place to have that window commisioned for where it just so happened to provide pondering opportunities for our heroes.
But there is a second stained glass window. In the Chapel in the last scene. And my heart is still hurting from that atrocity. Sure the floral pattern up top is nice and colourful, but the lower part is simply a border with a huge piece of blank glass. (Or plexiglass most likely if they did it practically with a nice lightbox behind it, because real glass is hella expensive.)
Just a few lines to make smaller 'pages of glass' just to fill that huge white block on screen. It was distracting me from looking at Alina in her wonderfully made dress that deserved to be looked at!
Rant over.

2023.03.26 13:35 Aryah10050 I feel so mean and ungrateful

Hey everyone, I’m sorry if I’m overacting or something, I don’t even know what I want to hear.. I’m struggling with depression and anxiety, I’m in therapy and it’s been 2 months since I’m on antidepressant, I also take benzodiazepines and antipsychotics. I don’t feel like it’s working, I know it takes time but the things is my mum and my sisters are so supportive and they always try to help me. I know that I’m so lucky to have supportive relatives and there are so many people that are alone in this… I live with my mum and her boyfriend, I don’t really leave my room, she always comes here and tries to make me do something with her, she always asks me something, always asks me what she can do for me. Ask me to at least go watch a movie with her so I’m not alone. And I always tell her that I just want to be alone, that I don’t want to do anything and send her away. She comes to my room many times a day to check on me and I’m annoyed of it. I feel so ungrateful and mean. I know she has the best intentions but I don’t even wanna talk to her. I just don’t wanna talk to anyone, I don’t wanna explain my self, I don’t want anything just everyone to leave me alone. I don’t think she gets how I’m feeling. I feel so bad. She does everything for me. I’m embarrassed of myself, I’m just laying in bed all day. I’m sorry for long text, I don’t even know what I want to hear

2023.03.26 13:34 BenLukasErekson Please change the way reviews are presented

First of all, thank you for Civitai! I am glad to have this resource, and I truly appreciate your effort.
But one thing has been annoying very much for long time now, and that is how the reviews load. It is not a problem, when a model only has a handful of reviews. But for popular models with hundreds of reviews each week for months, when you scroll down the page it is very difficult to orientate yourself among the reviews.
For one, text only reviews seem to load first, and there is always a clutter of many months old text only reviews at the bottom. This becomes problematic when you need to scroll below them to load the next reviews, and you don't see which reviews appear where, so that when you scroll up again to continue looking at the reviews where you left off, you often scroll past your last point and have to go through a lot of reviews again until you find where you were.
This problem become even larger, because the reviews aren't loaded in rows but in columns, and the columns are of unequal lengths. Often there is one column with image reviews that reaches down very far, and one or two other columns that are filled with text only reviews. When the new reviews load, they seem to get loaded into the shorther columns first, so that new reviews appear far up the page, between other reviews that you have already seen, making it even more difficult to understand where you were.
This become even more disorientating, as the images become blurry again when you scroll away from them and then back to them, so that you have to wait for the images to become unblurred again before you can continue.
There are other sites (e.g. Instagram) that manage loading new images better, even on very long pages. For one, the columns there are of equal length (max diff is 1 image, not tens of images as on Civitai). Second, loading there happens in rows, not columns (of unequal length). Third, loading happens below the current screen, not above. Finally, there isn't a bunch of old posts loading first that you have to scroll past if you want to load new images then return to these new images.
I'd be extremely grateful if you could change this loading behavior, because I frequently want to come back and see if new examples have been posted for my favourite models, and I don't want to spend hours scrolling through the reviews as I presently do (no exaggeration!).
Thank you for considering my suggestion!

2023.03.26 13:33 M7143 NGenuity / RGB bug on Alloy Origins?

Hello. First of all, I am not sure if it is related to the keyboard or strictly to something in the NGenuity software. Sometimes, I leave my computer on overnight, and whenever I do that I simply turn the Alloy Origins rgb off (FN + down arrow) because once I'm in bed it's quite annoying and distracting seeing all the light. So, I turn the rgb off, I get in bed, blah blah, I wake up in the morning. Guess what. RGB ON. How long was it on? I can't tell, I was sleeping. For some reason, the rgb turns itself on at night...? And it happens every time I leave the PC on overnight.
I had this keyboard for almost 2 years now, but I'm experiencing this only from october-november 2022, I did the same things before, just turning the rgb off at night and it would stay off...forever. Until I pressed the FN + up arrow to bring it back. Anyone has ideas? I tried searching for similar stuff on this subreddit but no luck on this specific matter.
Things to note :
- I am using the last firmware / NGenuity version (march)
- I always had NGenuity in the backround, I mostly use simple profiles (nothing fancy, a simple wave effect) inside the app, I don't use the stored profiles on the keyboard - the default / factory profiles are still stored on it.

2023.03.26 13:33 Equal_Move_4552 How long will TSW last?

Hi all! I’m pretty certain I am going through TSW. I have had worsening rashes that have spread after stopping my use of topical and oral steroids, the worst places being my arms and hands, giving me that sleeve effect. I have the burning sensation, the elephant skin and the uncontrollable body temp. Some areas of rash will ooze when scratched and then crust over when it’s not as dry as the Sahara desert!
My question is how long will my withdrawal last as I have not used steroids for a mega prolonged period of time - I used clobavate 0.05 w/w ointment for 2-3 months which started the withdrawal/worsening rashes and then when it got really bad and my legs swelled I was put on a course of Prednisolone for 9 days. Which I came off just a week ago and have now had spreading on my arms and dry skin appear on my eyelids.
Overall, I say I have used both topical and oral steroids for 4 months. How long will the withdrawal process roughly take for misuse of that length?
Thanks!

2023.03.26 13:33 selenophiille Why am i abandoned in my dreams?

So had two dreams over the last two days and in both of em, i was abandoned by mt family.
In the first one, there was someone who wanted to steal some packet we had but we couldnt lwt thwm have it. I didnt know what it was, looked like salt but whatever. We were supposed to all leave together but because it was a bike, my family left me and told me to go back and keep the packet safe. TWIST: when i get back, there are sorts of signs n im scared of the supposed thief. Suddenly theres no electricity n im alone in a room and the thief comes. He takes the packet n treats me well kinda.
Second dream was that i was at the mall, shopping. I dont know how my mom and brother got there. We had an electric scooter and were aupposed to go back. My brother wanted to ride behind my mom so my mom literally threw me off the scooter and had my brother hop on and left without me. Then, idk how i reached home but i go to the balcony n see a classmate a few streets away studying in his balcony and he waves at me and keepa looking at me. It was like we were a couple or maybe had a crush on each other, idk. I had another dream about him last night before this one in which he liked me after we had meal w our friends; we did not like each other before the meal and avoided one another, i also didnt like him after the meal.
So like, why does my family keep abandoning me?! I am planning to move away for college in the coming months so is that related to this dream or its something else?

2023.03.26 13:33 Plsplsplsplsplsplsno Year 10 High Schooler Wondering Whether The Last Two Years Are Worth it.

I've always had a love-hate relationship with school and I know that's basically the same for everyone but I recently found out that it's not exactly mandatory to have a high school diploma to get into university. I know that I need to get a degree for my dream job and so that's what I've always been aiming for. I learned about alternate pathways from people such as unschoolers and homeschoolers like non-award studies, enabling programs, uni diplomas, TAFE pathways, bridging courses and etc. It made my heart soar to learn there were other ways to get into university. However idk how reliable these are since they were talked about far and few in between. (I'm really worried they might not be legit.)
I've asked my guardians and all they really know about are the bridging courses, they said it would be bad because it added extra time and costed extra money (I also think these are an undoubtedly worse option since they have age limits that would make me wait for half a decade). They also told me to talk to the career's advisor and school counsellor, etc but Idk who the career's advisor is and I've only heard bad things about the counsellor from fellow students. I'm also worried that the fact this is a private school might make the advisor biased since me staying would mean more money for the school. Ultimately they were discouraging and I did get the answers I asked them for but I didn't want to leave it at that because and I know this may sound melodramatic but I don't know if I can survive a full three more years of school.
Recently the mental health problems I've been dealing with at school have gotten much worse. At first (year 7-8) I could brush off my concerns (and concerning thoughts/feelings) with armchair psychology and philosophy lessons from youtube and such but I wasn't satisfied there. I kept digging myself deeper into that hole, into political philosophy (to deal mentally with the mess that is the 2020s), into philosophical speculation about what the meaning of life is and ultimately concluded (thankfully) that I am an existential nihilist (that life is meaningless but for the meaning we can create) and more general general escapist pursuits (gaming, books, Netflix, daydreaming, YT, etc). But I could only distract myself from the helplessness of it all for so long. After I while I started lagging so I went on a dopamine detox of sorts (didn't learn until after) but it only gave me more time to think about how pointless everything is and how little control I have to change. How little autonomy and time I can use to create meaning in my life.
I started struggling to wake up in the morning after I stopped escaping so often even while obeying the recommended 9 hours of sleep religiously and exercising. Instead of physically escaping to a book, I started escaping inside my head. Daydreaming, more and more. But it makes it so hard to get up everyday. I wake up at 6:30 everyday but only ever manage to leave bed at 7:30, 10 minutes before I have to leave for school. This time daydreaming before school helps me stay calm and feel alive but it comes with it's sacrifices. In exchange for it, I've been neglecting my breakfasts and lunches, my personal hygiene, proper preparation for a school day (e.g. my PE uniform or calculator) and I'm so tempted to go back to my bad habits in year 7 and start neglecting my sleep as well. I know it's not good but it seems like the only way I can bring myself back from the overwhelm at the start of each day.
The overwhelm of wasting the 6 and a half prime hours of the day and more on travel time, homework, chores, etc. It tends to add up to over 40 hours a week that I'll never get back or get to myself. The overwhelm of the powerlessness when a teacher equivocates anarchy to chaos or teenage sleep schedules to laziness instead of circadian rhythm and horrible mental health. Because only a one in a million teacher would still be alive enough to help make themselves or school bearable after all the pressures that get put on them. (I definitely don't blame teachers for any of this though, we're stuck in this hellscape together.) The overwhelm of being too tired to do the things you truly want to, of doing homework first and then finding yourself too drained to write or draw or even just enjoy yourself. The overwhelm of having to catch up because the class' average is much faster than you or the horrible feeling of having to not be off-task while you wait for the class' understanding of a subject to catch up to yours... So many hours I'll never get back.
For a while, before I got into year 10 and before I found those pathways, I was contemplating really dark things. (I didn't make any plans, I was too scared to indulge myself and I get called oversensitive enough that I didn't ask for any help.) The least dark thought of which I had was the idea to truant. I needed escape perhaps more back then than I do now but I can feel myself slipping again. Everyone says that year 10 is the last 'easy' year and I don't want to find out what that means. I don't want to get even more homework and study eating up my time; I don't want to be more overwhelmed than I am right now and I don't know if I'd survive it.
That's why I'm looking for alternate pathways. I hope I'm not being overdramatic or something like that, I hope I'm not the only one who feels this way or this desperate and I'm willing to have things be a little harder to make sure it's not as hard on my mental health any more. I want there to be a way out of year 10 and to university so badly but this isn't a mainstream enough pathway that I can tell how to move forward and if I should forward this way.
Whatever happens, I don't think I can keep on keeping on like this.
TLDR: I'm a high schooler who's looking for an escape, I looked in philosophy, fiction, drawing, writing, psychology, consuming in general and gaming but always got dragged kicking and screaming back to reality. Now I'm in year 10 I have the chance to escape school for good (via alternate methods to getting into Uni) but at the cost of having a for-sure pathway in university and not being able to fit the mainstream mould. I asked youtube, google, ChatGPT, my carers, friends and I'm about to ask my mildly dubious counsellor and career's advisor. But I'm so scared I'll miss some catch to this arrangement and I want to get as many people's advice as possible so I know that quitting school before doing that final rank selection test is okay.
P.S. Throwaway cos I'm paranoid about giving out my age and general situation to the internet.
Thanks so much for reading.

2023.03.26 13:31 Primary-Picture-7274 How should I (21f) properly express my anger at my gf (20f) in a healthy way?

I am currently out of town from where my long term girlfriend and I live (together for about 3 years, living together for 7/8 months). I took a train to where I needed to be as my girlfriend had work so I left her with my car which I let her use as she pleases. Last night she texted me at 2am while I slept showing me how she scratched up the side of my car BADLY. It’s a 2020 and it’s red, so not only is it a new car the scratch is so obvious. I’m furious, but I don’t know how to express it without being cruel. How do i go about this? I want to be mad, I have a right to be mad. But i don’t know how to express my anger without making my girlfriend cry or making her feel like i’m being toxic. I’m about to leave to go back to our city, and she’s picking me up. About 3 hours. I don’t know what to do about this.

2023.03.26 13:30 wildworld97 Ethan, Hila, and the Crew helping me through my Chronic Illness

It's 5 am and I am currently sitting by our toilet, stomach empty after throwing up for the last 3 hours, and the only thing getting me through it is watching the podcast. I get these abdominal migraines, I've had them since I was a toddler, where I have these episodes of nausea and vomiting. Most of the time I wake up in the middle of the night/early, early morning and sometimes never fall back asleep due to being so nauseous. These early mornings that start like this can be incredibly lonely and I just needed to say how much the podcast has helped me through it. My boyfriend (now husband) introduced me to it in college in 2017 right around the time my stomach problems really started to get worse and for the past 5 years Ethan and the crew have led me through some of the darkest nights and mornings of my life. Watching the podcast when I literally feel like I would rather die than be going through what I am in the moment is able to take me out of that moment and not focus on how awful I am feeling. They have become my comfort watch during these times and as I'm watching Ethan and Hasan debrief the Sebastian situation it just pisses me off so much, not just because Sebastian is such an idiot who needs to grow up, but also because of how much he discredited him saying Ethan does no good with the podcast, only pushes out negativity. Making someone feel better when they literally want to die is pretty inspiring to me.

2023.03.26 13:29 Top-Sign2168 Pc booting from wrong drive

Relatively new to pc building so apologies if I'm missing something simple,
Had an old Alienware with a HDD and around 6 months ago got a new custom built pc with an SSD with windows installed , i plugged the old HDD in and duplicated it to the SSD, and been using it fine like that since.
When I swapped the case last week I managed to drop the cpu and bend some pins 🤦‍♂️. I bent them all back to place and after some wonky boot attempts with various motherboard LEDs I managed to get it back into windows, however it's booting from the HDD , and thinks its September again with all the old alienware users. All my SSD files are still there, but unsure how to boot windows off of it again.
I've tried changing the boot priority in BIOS and booting without the HDD installed, and just get a "Reboot and select proper boot device" error, does anyone know how to fix this please, thanks :)

2023.03.26 13:29 Weekly-Set-610 I can’t eat for some reason.

My situation is so specific I can’t give a huge amount of context, but I don’t know where else to turn than to the internet?
I have a huge issue with anxiety. To the point of panic attacks. Recently I have made a huge life change because I’ve been making awful, horrible, self destructive decisions.
Im very depressed and I know that but I have zero healthcare, and so therapy is not an option. Despite being below the poverty line and having a child (6) I do not get any benefits from work, the government, or any other place. I dont even quality for sliding scale programs but all I can say is I make less than $20 more than the limit for any assistance..
Now for the past 7 years my(f27) partner (m27) have really had a rift. He wanted a kid, I wanted to be child free. Despite protection AND the pill, I got pregnant. I freaked out because I would lose my job that I LOVED. It was the happiest time of my life. The guy I liked for so so so long (almost a year) and I had been together for 11 months. I knew it was a bad idea. My job was the one that made the majority of our finances and I didn’t want to be pregnant or have a child.
Well “love” (read: emotional manipulation) won and I kept the pregnancy. Yeah I’m stupid I know. Our relationship was actually good, we had fun together and the issues we ran into we worked together and fixed them or at least started the process because of my crippling anxiety and his inclination towards anger it was a process but we were a team.
That ended when he used the ultimatum to either keep him and the baby or my job (and life I mean I brought a human into a world like this and I’m doing everything I can to not feel guilt for knowing they will face hardships because my partner would leave me if I didn’t) it was entirely a stupid mistake. He is a good dad but a horrible provider. I’m now depressed and ofc hormones ppd, ppa, I developed diabetes and other chronic health conditions and became, well I wanted to get away from the world but I have a small human that needs me. Stopped wearing my seatbelt or looking before crossing the street.
Partner turned to drugs and we split. He gets clean, we work through it. My health (mental and physical) stresses him out and then he eventually relapses. Couldn’t hold a job, so I worked 2 jobs 4 weeks after having a child. This may give away something personal but after I gave birth, he disappeared after holding our child for nearly 4 hours. Then comes into the room, has not spoken to me at all looks down at arc child, and says, “are you sure the child is mine? “. I should’ve left. But my health and financial situation made it hard. I would end up having to go back because I can’t raise a child and work two jobs. I had one friend and my mom who also has health issues that would watch my little one but has nerve issues. My dad was too far to help. Childcare is expensive Well now the past few months since the last relapse and I live with my mom and we are “trying” but he’s cost me over $5000 and he works but he’s making so little and having to pay for legal costs for possession and a few other things and might go to prison for a few months/years because he enjoys his job despite the pay.
This will be odd but he wanted to apologize and celebrate my birthday. I figured it couldn’t hurt. He couldn’t pay for any of the gifts or food. There’s another $200 but he ordered me two gifts that were collectively $70-90 with shipping maybe..
Since then I can’t eat or sleep unless I’m drunk or take way. More than the recommended dose of sleeping medication. I haven’t cried a lot but today my aunt passed away and I went from crying for hours to deciding I want to leave him and move and get my old job back. I got so happy I danced around work listening to music and finally talking to my friends again.
Idk why I got so excited but I did. Unfortunately something held me up tonight so I went to get food and gas because even though I can’t eat, I keep making meals or buying food and I just stare at it until I just give up trying to eat. While I was there, I met someone here I am just getting out of a horrible relationship. But I allowed him to get my number. Technically, my partner and I are separated but today I did decide to leave them. I just haven’t been able to tell them we haven’t lived together in months. And this other guy and I start texting turns out we have a lot in common. I don’t want another relationship but I’m also moving in a few months. The advice I need to ask about is do I wait and not tell that I am leaving my partner, which would make it easier on me and probably safer or do I end it and maybe pursue seven things like a friendship with flirtation with someone that actually seems to care about the things that I like because he likes them too.? I don’t think it’ll be a forever we’re gonna get married thing just I want to be happy. I wanna have fun and not want to stop existing. I want to get excited when my phone rings instead of dreading what has happened now. I know pretending is wrong, but it would make it easier on my mental health even though I would feel like I’m cheating even though I don’t plan on doing anything like that, just casual flirtation, and possibly being like Internet friends or we don’t see each other, but we talk and play games and watch videos, but virtually using voice chat. I was also able to eat, but only a small amount of fries. I think this decision to leave is a good one. It’s the right one, but do I leave secretly it’s not like I’m gonna hide from him. It’s just that someone else is also on a similar situation. We don’t know each other very well but I know she needs to get out to her more than me, if I go and get everything ready and then come back and get her and our kids we could have a very happy life. I am almost 100% certain that this is the right choice. I just don’t know whether I should be open to my partner or ex partner or if I should tell him and risk it, possibly getting out because my child’s father is very close friends with her partner. I started trying to reach out more with her because I found out how dangerous her situation is. It is benefiting me may be more I don’t know I’m not sure what to do. Tell or wait ?

2023.03.26 13:29 AbhiFT [REQUEST][STEAM] Gift card of $36 or £29.90 for MS Flight Simulator 2020 [FOURTH ATTEMPT]

This is my fourth try still asking for a GiftCard amounting to the same sale price of the game. I know copy paste is not appreciated here for re-attempts, but last time I really worked hard on the poem for three days (I Know the poem sucks) and people seemed displeased with it. Further I really don't have anymore to say. I have seen some old posts where this game was asked by people but was never gifted once, but some other games here are gifted again and again. I really don't know why this game doesn't get any love, but I would really appreciate you for gifting this to me. And I will one day pay you in some way or another.
What is MS Flight Simulator 2020 about?
Game (40th AE is the base game): MS Flight Simulator 40th Base Edition
Microsoft has a long history with Flight Simulators. Their first Flight simulator was released in 1982. While the previous games were fun, the new MS Flight Simulator does something incredible which no other game has ever done: It simulates the topography of the entire Earth as accurate as possible to real world through satellite data of Bing/Google maps along with Cloud Computing to generate better visuals and real data for air traffic and weather. Moreover, it also takes real wind and real-world time into consideration.
The game also has an active community-driven add-ons that only makes the game even more realistic and grander. If any game has the biggest world map of all, this is it. This game has the world map almost as big as the Earth itself. You can visit many of the world-famous attractions like Eiffel Tower, The Taj Mahal and even football stadiums! But you can also explore some famous landscapes as well, and if you fly low enough, you can experience some wildlife too. The game features Geese, Seagulls, Grizzly Bears, Black Bears, Elephants, Giraffes, Flamingos. You can experience the beautiful endless sea, but make sure you have enough fuel; You surely don't want to end up like Chuck Noland, and to make matters worse, you won't have your trustee, Wilson!
Microsoft Flight Simulator features 25 handcrafted airports, 4 classic commercial airports, 14 heliports and 15 glider airports. There are over 37,000 total airports in the game along with 37 airplanes, gliders, and helicopters with unique flight models, the likes of A320 Neo, Boeing 747, Cessna, DA62, and the cutest CTLS and A5, with detailed interiors of the cockpit. Isn't that the ultimate definition of simulation?
Why I want it:
I love exploring the world, something I am not financially able to do in real world. Every Time I watch something on TV, it's 90% of the time travel channels. The first time I tried Flight Simulator on my friend's PC, I fell in love with it. What I love about MSFS is the grand scale of the game. While in games like ETS 2 even a 4,000 KM journey can be completed in 3-4 hours, with MSFS, it would take real world time. For example, it takes ~1h 15m non-stop flight from Paris to London (Average), so it would also take almost the same amount of time in the game too (that is real world 1h 15m). Even staying in the cloudy sky is so much fun with sunlight shining, thunder and rain. I love playing simulation, tycoon games as they are the pinnacle of freedom in gaming world with no bounds. I remember when I played Flight simulator 2000 back in 2003 and wondered, what a shitty game. Seriously, at that time I thought who would play this game with 65% of the screen occupied by the cockpit? And here I am today.
What I love about the FS 2020 game:
  1. There is nothing unlocked in the world. I don't have to pay extra or do specific tasks to unlock some part of the world. I can visit any place any time!
  2. The scale is grand. This has the biggest map of any game.
  3. So many different airplanes to choose from and they all act and feel different.
  4. This game is very relaxing. I can just unwind and soak the beauty of the world from the comfort of my chair.
  5. I love this game cause it takes up whopping over 150GB of Disk space.
  6. I love pushing and flicking buttons. Especially the flick switches. They are so yumm to touch. And the clicky sound it makes is better than any orgasm. Basically, I am flicking and pushing buttons while flying around in a tube.
  7. I can crash the plane without having to worry about anything.
  8. Landing! Landing in this game is like going to final exam without studying anything. If you nail it, that feeling is amazing!
  9. I can fly along with the birds!
  10. I can land the plane anywhere I want. Even in a grassfields or your ex's backyard.
  11. I am tired of playing the repeat levels of Fall Guys.
  12. The full detailed cockpit is amazing!
  13. Realistic ATC commands with interactions. If I am angry, I can choose to ignore the ATC.
  14. I need to find more things I like after playing the game.
I am in touch with the MSFS community on Discord and YouTube videos, with always waiting for max737Ifly video to show up as his videos are so good and realistic (even my mom loves watching it). I just cannot get enough from this game.
I can play this game even when I am listening to Podcasts and it makes such an immersive experience. The tiny details the game provides, like waiting instructions from ATC before you move a muscle, dialing the knobs, flipping tiny switches in the cockpit only adds to the experience which I enjoy a lot. This game is enjoyed by both, casual gamers and professional pilots as well. The game sends me to another world and is like a therapy for me. And playing MS Flight Simulator makes me feel like a bird. The game brings me a joy I cannot express through words.
Here are some content from the game:
  1. Some beautiful scenes (this is just a trailer)
  2. Beautiful clouds
  3. FS vs Real life
  4. Montage
  5. Hudson River
Here is me playing FS on my friend's PC:
  1. Potash Ponds
  2. Simpson Desert
  3. The deep hole near Antarctica
why I can't get it:
I cannot afford it to be honest. I have taken some surveys to earn a bit here and there to collect for the game but it's such a long process and the reward is generally not worth it. My bad luck is that due to a technical mistake, the game was selling with 80% discount but due to time zone difference, I couldn't grab on the once in a lifetime opportunity. I also tried other giveaways for steam gift cards, but I never win them, and they are so rare to come by. I am really struggling with money and hence I am here.
Because I cannot afford the game, I tried to look into alternatives:
  1. Xplanes really is the only contender, but it lacks the real-time aspect of weather, wind, terrain MS Flight Simulator provides. Moreover, it's more about planes and their simulation than exploration.
  2. DCS World, which is a full-on military combat simulation game. Even though that game is extremely hard to play with a keyboard, I still managed to play some couple of hours in it. However, it's really not something I am interested in as It's not a game where you can explore the world and the Jet planes are very speedy and hard to control. Compared to that, Flight Simulator is more of an arcade style game and controlling it is fun and easy even with keyboard and mouse.
An explanation of why GamePass and MS Rewards ain't the way:
MS Rewards: In India, we can only get an Amazon gift voucher for Rs. 250 for 4,000 points. So only 162 points are allotted per day to farm. Given that, I get mere Rs. 250 in 25 days. So a total of something around 64,000 points required for a total of Rs 4000. This is what the game costs now post sale. So it would take me around more than a year to accumulate so many points. By then I might just lose interest in the game.
Game Pass: I don't have a card that can work with game pass. And in the long run it will cost me far more than what the game would have cost me. I also won 2 month free game pass key on reddit which I wasn't able to redeem due to card issue. It's a game that I plan to play for a really long time.
Also, I am saving to get a 500GB SSD just for this game along with some add-ons. I won't be asking here if I could have afforded all of these. I cannot get both of them. And SSD costs more than the game.
why you should gift it to me:
I will be playing this game everyday and you won't feel your money is wasted. This gift will bring such a big smile to my face that even Joker would feel ashamed. I know many people hoard games and don't play them, or they play for a few times and stop. I can guarantee you that once I get this game, I will be playing it every single day! This game is the reason I am for the first time requesting for a game here. And I promise I will do justice to the game and gifter. I am not requesting for any deluxe version or anything, just the base game will suffice for me. I can say it from my heart that the day I get this game, will be the day I will be flying in the air of joy! As this community works on the principle of making others happy with no selflessness! But I can never be happy unless I own this game. This game is the only game missing from my library of happiness.
If that's not enough, let me tell you something: you will feel on top of the world if you gift this game to me, even more than me. Don't ask me how. Be the first person to gift someone MS Flight Simulator on this sub and feel proud. If you don't feel on top the world, I will make sure to pick you up free of cost from your home in one of your choice of plane and will personally drop you on the top of Mt. Everest. I will also let you touch some buttons in the cockpit or let you control the yoke. But only you have to figure out how to get down from the Mt., as I will be flying all that time exploring the world. But if you don't like cold places, I can show you a secret place (This Secret place is a part of a DLC and there is a way to unlock this place)!
To anyone who gifts this game to me, I will forever remember you and engrave your name on my grave thanking you that I died in peace. And when I meet God, I will personally tell him that if it weren't for you, I would have gone to hell.
My steam ID
Price of base 40th Anniversary edition in India: Rs. 3,999. However, I will still ask for the discounted price of 2,999 which is $35. The rest I will try to manage from somewhere or use the MS Reward for 4 months.

Kane Te Tai remembered as man of honour committed to aiding Ukraine

https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/national/486507/kane-te-tai-remembered-as-man-of-honour-committed-to-aiding-ukraine
Whānau and friends of slain soldier Kane Te Tai say he will return home as a warrior in life and death, and be remembered as a man who always fought for what was right.
RNZ understands the body of the slain New Zealand soldier has officially been identified as Te Tai and is now being transferred to Kyiv.
He is understood to have been killed while clearing a trench in the Vulhedar area of Ukraine.
Sources have told RNZ he had moved deeper into the trench, away from his team, when he was killed by Russian soldiers.
His team were forced to leave his body there, before Ukrainian marines went in and recovered him overnight.
Veteran support and advocacy group No Duff is now working to ensure a New Zealander can be available to escort his body through the country to the Polish border, before travelling with him for his final journey home.
Comrades and friends have said they believed it was important a Kiwi was always with him, but the process would not be simple.
Te Tai co-founded No Duff with Aaron Wood, who told Midday Report his mother had asked them to manage the journey home.
"We're pulling all the pieces together. A number of volunteers and interested people from New Zealand, all the way through to Ukraine and in between, are coming together to make this happen."
It was highly likely they would be able to bring him home, Wood said, but there were numerous jurisdiction challenges ahead.
Deeply respected during time in Ukraine
Te Tai joined the Defence Force after leaving high school and went on multiple deployments while serving in the 2/1 Royal Battalion.
He left the Army in 2010 and travelled to Ukraine in April last year, operating under the call sign 'Turtle'.
Te Tai was a prominent character in the warzone and was widely followed on social media.
His colleagues described him as well-known and deeply respected for his professionalism, skill, leadership and relentless sense of humour.
They said he never underestimated the importance of his job, or the lives he held in his hands.
His death marks the third New Zealander to be killed in the combat - after the deaths of his best friend Dominic Abelen and humanitarian Andrew Bagshaw.
Te Tai had become the unofficial expert for New Zealanders in Ukraine, often acting as the point of contact for Kiwis wanting to travel to the warzone. He would ensure people knew what they were signing up for, a way to get into the country and a unit to go to.
He admitted in an interview with RNZ his initial motivations for going there were selfish, but that changed quickly on arrival.
The soldier became an infamous figure in the war, often featuring on Russian propaganda sites - seen by RNZ - particularly the Wagner group, who put a NZ$11 million price tag on his head.
In a conversation with friends he joked about ratting himself out for the money, illustrating his sense of humour.
Te Tai always said to his friends he was not afraid to die, but he also was not afraid to live.
During nearly a full year in Ukraine, he garnered respect from people in all walks of life. He volunteered with Ukrainian families, taught civilians how to fight and eventually found a spot at the frontline as one of the team's leaders.
Te Tai said he was fiercely protective of his team and did anything to make sure they were safe.
During one mission in August 2022, his best friend, Abelen, was killed in trench warfare. In an interview after the mission, Te Tai said the team were unable to get his body back and it ended up in Russian hands, but that did not stop him from trying.
He told RNZ they only stopped because Abelen would not have wanted them killed in the process.
Just last week Te Tai posted on social media, revealing that while clearing a Russian position he had found a "long lost friend" who had wanted to visit New Zealand.
Te Tai had thought his friend was dead and was amazed to find him alive, describing it as a "Hollywood moment".
He said at first he did not recognise the man, who had been shot four times and was skinny.
"He'd been starved by Russians for two months and drinking anti-freeze because the Russians wanted a laugh."
The man did not want to be left with the Ukrainians, but Te Tai had to keep fighting. He promised he would return and walk him personally to hospital.
That was exactly what he did, he said.
'The people grow on you'
In that August interview with RNZ, Te Tai said he had fallen in love with the country and its people, and was deeply respectful of their resolve.
"I was sort of getting a bit bored of being at home... and coming into this conflict was just one of those things that selfishly I thought I could be close to the war without getting too entangled.
"But then that sort of changes... I've met so many people, I've been everywhere in this country and the place grows on you, the people grow on you, and their strength, and that's why I'm still here."
Te Tai said he was prepared to leave everything in Ukraine, but in the weeks before his death he had made moves to return home.
His mother said he always kept her up to date, ending the calls with "I love you Mum", but more recently it was like "I'll see you soon".
In a Facebook message to another friend he said he loved Ukraine, but it was time to start living a real life - "gotta put the toys away and start to build while I can", he said.
"That's enough war for me, I love this place, it's like a playground where I can do anything I want.
"But that's the problem isn't it? So before the game gets me or before I decide that life here is too easy, maybe it's time to start living my real life.
"This place is pure escapism, we are all trying to run from something, mine is from having a real life, but the time is near."
Passionate about the cause
Te Tai is being remembered by his friends and comrades as a man of honour who was passionate about his cause, always doing everything he could to protect people.
Longtime friend Aaron Wood described Te Tai as a beautiful man, who he loved to bits.
"He just wanted people to live their best lives and he wanted to help as many people as he could.
"That sounds like a cliché, but with him it's a truism. That's his whole life... Just serving people, that's what he did, that's what his message was."
That was what he died doing, Wood said.
His mum, Ngaire Te Tai, said there was never any talking him out of it.
"He never did anything by halves, my son. We tried to stop him, but he had his mind made up, that's just Kane.
"When you were around him, you just felt safe."
A gift she said she knew he spread much further than just Ukraine.
Ngaire Te Tai's final comment about her eldest boy was: "Don't let my son's death be in vain."
He leaves behind a 12-year-old daughter.
“Don’t get me wrong, I don’t find anything glorious about killing young mobilised Russian boys who are crying in their trenches”

The shelling is so close it makes you puke, says Kiwi fighting in Ukraine

A Kiwi soldier fighting under Ukraine’s military intelligence says he’s prepared to die.
Kane Te Tai, code name Turtle, is fighting in a secretive reconnaissance unit on Ukraine’s front line in the eastern Donetsk region.
After deaths, injuries and resignations, Te Tai now leads the Foreign Reconnaissance Team after only joining in July.
A December article in The New Yorker magazine revealed the existence of the unit and featured Turtle.
It’s the same unit that 28-year-old Kiwi Dominic Abelen was fighting in when he was killed in August, and the two were like brothers.
Te Tai’s unit has set up a PayPal to fundraise for vehicles it needs to move around its area of operation, near the town of Pavlivka.
As Te Tai was interviewed, he had to be careful his phone wasn’t too bright, so as to not give his unit away to any Russian drones flying overhead.
“We live on the line, we just occupy whatever place we can find at the time. If it gets too hot we just find somewhere else,” he told Stuff.
His unit’s job is primarily reconnaissance, a small mobile force that could reach into Russian land or no-man’s land between the trenches, and destroy a tank or hold a position, before the Ukrainian army moved in.
“Find it, locate it, observe it, report it, attack it.”
Good 4x4 vehicles are a necessity.
Donetsk is known for farming and coal production, and Te Tai described the land as similar to the Canterbury plains.
Soldiers try and use the tree lines separating the fields for cover, and trench systems are built through them.
During the winter, the roads and fields are muddy, pocked by craters from Russian artillery barrages.
The Foreign Reconnaissance Team can get the necessities of war – food, bombs, clothing, bullets - just fine.
Reliable working vehicles and parts, and enough for an emergency stockpile, are harder to come by.
The Foreign Reconnaissance Team is reliant on vehicles driven into Ukraine from throughout Europe by volunteers and paying for them with donated money.
“You can use that vehicle until it is blown up or you crash it, unfortunately both those things happen all the time,” Te Tai said.
“The last three vehicles we’ve had, in the last month, they’ve been hit with artillery. Holes in the front, s... just smashed through.”
Unlike the famous International Legion Battalion, which tens of thousands of foreigners have joined since the start of the war, the Foreign Reconnaissance Team is for some of the highly-trained foreign few.
Te Tai served a tour in Afghanistan for the New Zealand Defence Force and thinks of himself as having spent his whole life training to fight.
His team is given autonomy, building trust with local Ukrainian commanders to find out what they want and then formulating missions.
Te Tai was able to talk about one operation the Foreign Reconnaissance Team conducted during a December battle in Pavlivka, first described in the New Yorker article.
Te Tai and a small team of a half-dozen were set to cross a bridge at night and enter a tree line which ran into the centre of the town.
The mission was to see how close they could get to the Russian positions before they were fired on.
“The moment that we got onto the bridge, everything just opened up, rockets, missiles everything. We ran across this bridge and were just trying to scramble to the safest nearest spot.”
Te Tai’s team managed to get into the tree line and into a trench – all in the dark – but the Russians began to shell progressively towards them down the tree line.
“I remember just looking at everyone in the pit and we all had this look on our faces like, ‘well, the party had to end some time’. We had this feeling of acceptance.”
But, just as the next shell was set to kill the team, it flew off somewhere else and the Russians then began to bomb regressively back along the tree line.
“By divine intervention we missed getting smashed... We all knew we were supposed to die that night.”
Before joining Foreign Reconnaissance, Te Tai was working for a church training Ukrainians in basic military skills.
He was open with people back in New Zealand about what he was experiencing, including old army colleagues.
Te Tai described an environment where Kiwis in Ukraine often stayed in touch and worked together, including Dominic Abelen who contacted Te Tai before making the trip.
When Abelen said that he was set to join the International Legion Battalion, Te Tai told Abelen he was hearing bad stories.
“You go there as a foreigner, you get given a weapon, some ammunition, and sit inside a trench and you fight or die, that’s how it’s portrayed.
“People would tell us: 'Thank you for training my son, he didn’t make it back, but I felt he was better off than he was before’,” he said.
Abelen, now with the nickname Tolkien, made his way into the Ukrainian army, but managed to get taken into Ukrainian military intelligence.
Talking to Abelen about what he was doing, Te Tai had had enough of training soldiers and the 37-year-old felt like he was running out of time to fight.
“I told him [Abelen], ‘I’ll jump in with you too’.
“And he [Abelen] was like ‘thank God, cool man’,” said Te Tai.
He ended the volunteer work and a recruiter told Te Tai to get to Lviv where he entered a secretive military intelligence training camp.
Recruits weren’t allowed to use their phones and were closely evaluated for a two-week period.
“Pretty much from the second they take you into the camp, they don’t tell you what’s going on.
“They operate it like a psychological test, to see if you can be just told what to do and not know any other parameters,” he said.
Access to weapons was heavily restricted and there was heavy scrutiny as Ukrainian officials went through candidates’ records and social media, trying to weed out spies and the weak.
“When you talk to someone, it’s always a cover story, you’re never talking to who you think you’re talking to,” Te Tai said.
Then, one morning in July, officials gave Te Tai a contract and drove him to the Foreign Reconnaissance Team in Donetsk.
“As soon as we pulled up... Dom had no shirt on... he said, ‘let’s do some work’.”
“I was like ‘my man!’.”
Abelen had put in a good word for him with Ukrainian intelligence, Te Tai said.
He gave Te Tai the code name of Turtle, after he had originally named himself Talon. Talon was too cool, Abelen said.
Te Tai described new troops arriving for the unit as a big event, a celebration of strengthening the group after the fighting took its toll.
“There’s a high attrition rate either by death, injury, or guys wanting to leave.”
The Foreign Reconnaissance Team currently operates out of a house, planning their missions on a whiteboard.
“We’re normally strapped for time. If we’re not out working we are resting, or we are giving instructions.”
Te Tai said there aren’t ranks in the unit, so while he is the team’s leader, he sits on the same step as the other foreigners in the unit.
He eats Ukrainian food: soups like borscht, and two-minute noodles and toast.
At night Te Tai watches Netflix and YouTube fail compilations to decompress. Sometimes, he hears the Russians shelling, keeping him awake.
When you’re fired on by artillery, you can hear the lifespan of the shell, he said.
He described how shells left the Russian gun with a distant duh-boom, screeching through the air, before exploding somewhere on the Ukrainian side of the line.
Some shells landed far away, but some hit so close to soldiers that the concussion made them puke and made them feel sick for the next day, he said.
“That shit happens like every week.”
About six weeks after Te Tai joined the unit, Abelen was killed during a mission.
“It pissed me off more than anything, it just consolidated for me that I’m not leaving any time soon.”
Te Tai said Abelen didn’t have a death wish, but he was a soldier and fighting was what he had trained for his whole life.
“I could have told him, ‘you are going to die today’ and he would have been like ‘it’s a good day to die’, that’s just who he was.”
Killing didn’t weigh on Te Tai’s mind, he said. He described it as part of the job, and said his views hadn’t changed since Abelen’s death.
“Don’t get me wrong, I don’t find anything glorious about killing young mobilised Russian boys who are crying in their trenches,” he said.
“I’m willing to die, for sure, but I don’t want to die.”
Te Tai has no plans to leave and wants to attend a victory day parade in Kyiv.
“I know we’re going to win, I know that for sure,” he said.
“I’m staying here until I can’t take it any more, or I am dead.”

2023.03.26 13:25 Enai_Siaion Brynnhildr, Taker of the Slain

Brynnhildr is a bruiseassassin with disruptive short ranged skills and the ability to enter battle on her own terms. She starts out as a high impact assassin and transitions into a disruptive bruiser.

Lore

Frodnar stood up, blinking, with much effort. Why was he on the ground? Where were his axe and shield? Why did everything seem so unreal and dreamlike? The sounds of battle seemed distant and the muddy field was steeped in an unearthly glow. As he slowly pondered these questions, still stunned from that mace blow, someone behind him put a hand on his shoulder. "Frodnar, it is time", she spoke.
"They got me, didn't they?"
She nodded silently, waiting for his bearsmead trance to wear off. As the blood left his body, so would the elixir leave his mind. They had made it farther than the enemy must have expected, just the twenty of them with axes and wolfskins going up against the entire legion. The ambush was flawless, but it was not enough. She knew it was never going to be enough.
"Where is the warband? How many of the rooster draggers did I take down with me?"
She shook her head, with not a hint of sadness in her eyes. "Grapeshot."
"But I can't... The village needs me! The women and children...!"
She remained silent.
"You can skewer their whole legion on that god-spear of yours. Do something!"
"The Gods wove the tapestry of fate to be admired, not touched. Your death was prophesised." She handed him his axe and shield back and coolly continued, "Come with me, einherjer. Your time on Runeterra is over, but one final battle awaits," as the earth quietly dropped out from under the pair and the skies faded into a brilliant white glow and gave way to the myriad stars of Nivheim.

Lying on the floor of a hastily dug trench, a young woman looked up at the stars, watching the glare of a falling star streak past overhead. A portent from the heavens; a sign of victory or doom? She did not dare to hope for much more than a bitter victory, and even that would be a miracle. The legion was still advancing on their position and her brothers were probably already dead. Their only hope was that the men had done enough damage to dissuade them from a frontal attack.
"Mom, the falling star, what does it mean?", a boy asked, no older than fifteen.
"It means we will win this, Bjarn. The Gods are with us. Maybe you'll get to kill a war elephant!", she said, gesturing to the makeshift crossbow he was holding in his knuckles.
It sounded very unconvincing, and Bjarn knew it, and so did the falling star descending invisibly on the small group of defenders. Unbeknowst to the mortals in the trenches, the enemy already knew their position and were loading their cannons. Bjarn would never even get to shoot his crossbow, and then she would rush the enemy ranks in a suicidal charge and that would be that. Wrong place, wrong time, as fate ordained.
As she gave her son a hug, the falling star landed silently on the ruins, watching the small group of defenders in the trench that would be their tomb. A single ethereal tear fell and vanished as the cannons flared in the distance.

Behind the thunder of the barrage, a faint ripple in the tapestry drew the messenger's eye, a single thread unwinding far behind enemy lines. The defenders were still alive: one of the cannons had not fired. Through the din of battle, she listened.
I will not shoot at women and children so the high command can add a few more miles to their borders. Fire! Fire, soldier! This is an order! We can just put down our weapons and walk away. We can put an end to this. Hands in the air! Drop the match! Drop it!
She cast one last glance at the stars she would never touch again and landed at Bjarn's side, taking care not to startle the boy.
"Be not afraid, Bjarn. You need to do something. You know how to use that crossbow?" "Yes, I... shot a rat... just yesterday..." "Good. See that star up there, just a bit brighter than the others? Aim straight at it and shoot." "Who are..." "Do not sit here waiting to die. Shoot. Follow my last prophecy. Unravel the tapestry."
And Bjorn did as she asked, and watched the crude dart arc into the distance, carried by a lucky wind.
This is bigger than you, soldier. If you don't fire, someone else will, and if they don't, someone else will. You are nothing!
Suddenly, unexpectedly, but exactly as the messenger had prophesised, a crossbow bolt fell from the sky, knocking the lit match out of the soldier's hand, sending it tumbling through the air and into a nearby barrel.

As the echoes of the bombardment faded, the mother gripped her sword, awaiting the charge. In the distance, the enemy line rushed towards them, then hesitated, stumbled; swept off their horses and knocked to the ground by a scorching wind as the horizon lit up with a brilliant glow. Burning debris and a cloud of gunpowder smoke filled the sky.
"The cannons! Bjarn, the cannons!" She turned to her son and who is that wait is that a--
"Is... is Bjarn dead?" "Not right now. Maybe later," the messenger replied. "Are we going to die?" "I do not know. The tapestry is unwoven, your fate is now in your hands alone. I have broken my oath; the power of prophecy is no longer mine."
The messenger looked around the trench, pointing her spear at the enemy line where the soldiers were clambering around, disoriented, searching for their weapons and horses. "Listen up! The children stay here and watch for ambushes. The adults join me! We strike that wagon over there before they remember which way to point their swords. That's their carrier pigeon cage. We take that out, we cut their communication lines."
"We can actually win this?", the mother asked.
"We have been given a chance. Nothing more, nothing less. The rest is up to us," the valkyrie replied.
And when her warhorn sounded and she took to the air, the villagers rose up from the trenches and the einherjer with them, rushing the enemy line, as flaming debris rained down from the heavens like falling stars.

Model

Brynnhildr is a valkyrie who has broken her oath and is doomed to remain in Runeterra. She has gray feathered wings with hints of iridescent starlight and wears elegant gray starmetal armor, a deep blue feather cloak and a circlet decorated with starmetal wings over long blonde hair streaming behind her.
She uses her wings to hover just above the ground, but walks when slowed.
Her weapon of choice is a long starmetal spear. She usually holds it one-handed, but grips it in two hands during [Q] Star of Hope.
When she dies, her corpse burns away with starlight flames, leaving no body.

"It is not yet your time. Return whence you came."
Brynnhildr grabs an enemy unit in melee range and carries them into the sky, making both herself and the target untargettable for a short time before dive bombing the target back down for major damage and a slow. If this is the last enemy unit and the damage kills it, she then immediately goes into [Passive] Gray Swan mode.
If Brynnhildr activates this ability during [Q] Star of Hope, it immediately casts on impact instead of waiting for the animation to finish. This deletes the wing strike and its area effect damage, dealing the damage only to the direct target, but prevents the target from escaping after the dash lands.
Stat Value
Duration Up to 1.25 seconds (impact occurs 0.25 seconds before the end)
Impact: Physical damage 30/50/70/90/110 (+1.0 total AD)
Impact: Slow 50% fading over 1.1/1.2/1.3/1.4/1.5 seconds
Cooldown 18/16/14/12/10 seconds
Mana cost 80/85/90/95/100

[E] Valravn

"Your fall was preordained. Come with me."
Passive: The enchantment on her Ring of Runegold increases Brynnhildr's attack speed against enemy champions and applies a stacking "Doomed" mark to the target, up to 3 stacks.
Active: Must be cast at a target in melee range with 3 "Doomed" stacks on it. Brynnhildr grabs the target and leaps backwards with a flap of her wings, taking the target with her. If she jumps over a terrain obstacle this way, the target is pulled into the obstacle and stunned, allowing her to escape.
Stat Value
Passive: Bonus attack speed 20/25/30/35/40%
Passive: Mark duration 2 seconds (refreshed on attack)
Active: Backwards leap distance 350
Active: Terrain collision stun to target 1.5 seconds
Active: Cooldown 12/11/10/9/8 seconds
Active: Mana cost 60/65/70/75/80

[R] Götterdämmerung

"Fight. Go. Take back this world from the Gods."
Brynnhildr sends the einherjer, the immortal spirits of her chosen champions, to attack her opponents.
The einherjer are invulnerable and intangible flying warrior spirits with swords and axes (canonically they are the champions she has chosen with [Passive] Taker of the Slain). They appear behind Brynnhildr, seek out an enemy champion with "Doomed" stacks from [E] Valravn and fly into the target while swinging their weapon for damage. They pass through their target several times, turning around with wide arcs to attack again before dissipating when their attack limit is reached.
The number of spirits increases based on the number of champions she has chosen with [Passive] Taker of the Slain.
Stat Value
Detection radius 800
Number of Einherjer 3 + Number of champions currently chosen with [Passive] Taker of the Slain
Einherjer: Movement speed 600
Einherjer: Attack limit 3 (destroyed after 5 seconds)
Einherjer: Physical damage 15/25/35 (+0.1 bonus AD) (=45/75/105 (+0.3 bonus AD) per spirit) (=135/225/315 (+0.9 bonus AD) to 315/525/735 (+2.1 bonus AD) total)
Cooldown 180/140/100 seconds

Gameplay

Brynnhildr goes top or jungle, starting with [Q] Star of Hope in top lane and [E] Valravn in the jungle.
In either role, her lack of sustain hampers her ability to passively farm and she should hunt for early kills instead. Engaging with [Q] Star of Hope into [W] Between Worlds results in decent damage and delays their escape, potentially leading to a pull from [E] Valravn to stall them further while she auto attacks them.
In the jungle, she is very mobile thanks to [Passive] Gray Swan. It does need a runway to activate and turns off when she gets hit, making it much harder to use in top lane and mitigating the potentially abusive scenario of being able to hard engage from outside the opponent's range.
At level 6, the ultimate comes online. It only deals damage, and not a lot of it at first, but the spirits continue to pursue the target until their duration or attack limit runs out. It is primarily useful for counterganking and dragon fights because the damage scales up if her allies die first and [Q] Star of Hope has a very long range when aimed at an allied corpse.
Her weakest point is the mid game. Her AD scaling is not the greatest and she lacks defensive buffs and therefore needs [W] Between Worlds as an aggro dump, using it like Playful/Trickster instead of as part of her combo. This is a transitional phase and she should build hard defence at this point.
In the end game, her role shifts into a disruptive bruiser tank of sorts. Damage falls off, but her attack speed gets fast enough to chain [E] Valravn after [W] Between Worlds, trapping the target in a CC combo if they don't manage to escape the slow. Furthermore, she now benefits from staying longer in the fight due to [Passive] Taker of the Slain and the power of [R] Götterdämmerung to turn a losing teamfight around if she waits until the last moment (but no longer) to cast it.

2023.03.26 13:25 ErinTheSloth Cramping and really depressed but no bleeding for 2 months. I can’t take much more of this..

Last period I had was mid January. Normally my cycles are 30-50 days apart and I get symptoms like random cramps, low mood, acne about 2 weeks before my period starts.
The last month and a half though have been horrible. I started getting pre period symptoms mid February and I thought ‘great, it should be a normal on-time cycle’ but then the bleeding didn’t start. I assumed it was because we went on holiday that week and I thought the stress of travel disrupted it somehow, but It’s now almost April and the pre period symptoms haven’t stopped. I’m crying from low mood so much that I have permanent red stains under my eyes. I feel constantly tired and depressed. I also get random painful cramps lasting a few seconds every time I move. I just want my period to start so these symptoms will stop. It’s been about 50 days of constantly feeling like my period is about to start but it never comes! Does anyone have any advice for how to get through this? It’s really starting to affect my work and my relationship.
PS: I’m in a really dark place right now and I’m only looking for advice on how to survive until my period finally starts. If you’ve had an experience like this that has lasted much longer than 2 months, please don’t tell me. The only thing getting me through each day is the fact that today could be the day that my period actually starts and this horrible pre-period state will end. I can’t take much more of this :(
Extra info: I’m 23 and not overweight. I have a healthy BMI and eat fruit and veg regularly.

2023.03.26 13:25 KellyMamadoo Advice for a newbie to coloring

Advice for a newbie to coloring
Okay, I feel kind of stupid, but I really want to get my hair colored but I never have before. I also don't want it to be too high maintenance of a thing, where it is okay if it grows out a bit and is close to my natural color. I mainly want to cover grays and have some dimension. So in the last photo is my natural hair, and the other photo is the color I am hoping for. What exactly should I ask for at a salon? I also would like a cut kind of similar to the the other photo. How much would both a cut and color like this generally cost? ( I realize it wouldnt be cheap but should I expect like 100 something or more like 500?) My hair is actually about 2 inches longer now than in the photo, and very thick if that matters in any way.

2023.03.26 13:24 -llull- Hot Take: The Loser Update is Good, Actually

I haven't seen this much vitriol since the Level 14 announcement! Take a deep breath. Resist, for a moment, the urge to smash your finger on that downvote click. I do offer some critiques to the update, as well.
You're probably thinking, "Supercell is objectively nerfing rewards and introducing changes that ruin my fun. How is this good?!"
First, ask yourself two questions.
  1. What kind of gamer are you?
  2. What kind of game is Clash Royale?
To answer #1, I recommend taking a quiz to see which Bartle player type for gamification you are. You're likely a "Killer" (<1%) or "Achiever" (~10%), although "Socializers" account for ~80% of gamers overall.
For #2, CR is a game that caters to "Killer" and "Achiever" types. In other words, most people play for competition or progression. This is backed up by the ~1-2% of players that reach Ultimate Champion.
In general, "Socializers" may play but are unlikely to find the gameplay rewarding and even less likely to spend regularly as casual players. This game is not for "Socializers" and never has been. There is no meaningful social component in the game. It is not a priority given how half-baked the "social" features like Clans, Clan Wars, "Community" events, and managing friends are. If you enjoy it nevertheless, awesome!

Competition

If you are among the 1% of players who play CR for competitive reasons, this update and the existing options are great whether you are new/veteran or F2P/Pass Holder. Here's why:
If you want to play competitively, you do not have to max your credit card and max out your cards. Play free tournaments and the challenges. This is the fastest route to improving your skills and earning the gold / cards to max your decks.

Progression

Unfortunately, the points above apply to a fraction of the player base. If you play for progression, the great news is that you have a long road ahead of you. Progression by its very nature is a grind, a lovely decorated Skinner box. It's not always this transparent or discouraging, but that is why you ("Achievers") play -- and why you pay.
The Loser update makes perfect sense, from a business point-of-view, for providing "Achievers" with a fulfilling experience. Why aren't you satisfied? Shouldn't you be? If you're truly a casual player, why does this update matter to you at all? The game is either fun or it isn't. The mechanics of the game have not changed.

Dark Patterns

Dr. Celia Hodent, a former UX Director for Fornite, identifies the following "dark" patterns:
SC slightly misses the mark for some players with this update because it's leaning hard into these dark patterns. They are ethically debatable. The SC team has to ask itself, are they trying to make monetization compelling or the game?
Consider asking that question to yourself. Is the game compelling or just its monetization? Was this ever not the case?

2023.03.26 13:24 ThrowRa-123456789101 Is my (F21) boyfriend (M21) telling me the truth or should I trust my gut

I don’t really know how to do this but I need advice. I, F 21, haven’t always had the best luck in my relationships. My last one consisted of two years of trauma from a guy who couldn’t stay loyal to me to save his life. I completely lost myself in that relationship, so when it ended I spent the next year and a half focusing on healing and bettering myself. Then I met my current partner, M 21. Meeting him has felt like the best thing thats happened to me. He’s everything I could’ve asked for and more, he’s raised every bar. And everyone in my life that’s met him instantly loves him. We’ve been together for a year and a half now.
After everything in my last relationship I told myself that before going into a new one I wanted to talk to the person first about what each other’s boundaries might be, that way if there’s any issues they could be talked about before things got too serious. So that’s exactly what I did with my current relationship. For me, there are three main things that due to my past I’m just not comfortable with my partner doing. One and two are similar and for the same reasons, I don’t feel comfortable with my partner following half naked girls on social media, and I don’t want them going on OnlyFans. I don’t really have an issue with porn, but those two things just feel really personal to me while porn feels more disconnected.. I don’t know how to explain I guess.. And my last thing is I just don’t want to be lied to, especially not about big things. When I told my boyfriend that he said he felt the same way and that there wouldn’t be any issues.
Recently my boyfriend was telling me about some post someone made and wanted to show me. We were sitting next to each other, he pulled out his phone, opened Instagram and went to the search bar. That’s when we both end up seeing that his search history is filled with half naked girls. I immediately asked what the deal was and his answer was just he didn’t know. Or that he hadn’t looked someone up in a long time so he didn’t know. I started feeling anxiety attack approaching and felt this slight fight or flight instinct kick in. In hindsight, I know a lot of other people wouldn’t be upset over this kind of thing, but it was one of my boundaries being crossed and it triggered a lot of emotions for me. I impulsively took his phone out of his hand and started looking through the app. I didn’t even know what I was looking for, I just kept tapping and asking if he was hiding something. He stayed quiet, watched the floor and let me do my thing. Then I end up clicking on something that said “Links you’ve visited”. I didn’t know about it before but it’s pretty self explanatory. It tells you what links you’ve visited through the Instagram app and when. Looking at his, it was instantly clear that each one were links to OF accounts. And sure enough when I revisited them they each took me to a different girls page. ((Notable dates I saw include my birthday, Valentine’s Day & our anniversary)) At this point we’re both crying and I’m seeing red. I ask him about the links and he just keeps saying he doesn’t know. Then at some point the story changes to he had an account before we met and he would watch people but stopped when we got together, but that he still occasionally gets emails from them so he wanted to delete his account but can’t remember the log in info. I tell him it wouldn’t make sense for Instagram to be saying he went to all these different links on so many different days if he was really just wanting to delete it and could’ve done that through the emails he was supposedly getting. ((I saw no evidence of there ever being any emails)) He still stuck with his story. Finally I just say “So what you’re telling me is you had an account that you wanted to delete and you thought the best way to do it was by going on instagram, looking up multiple specific girls by name, and clicking the link in their bio that takes you to their personal OF page?” I thought saying that would make him hear how dumb I thought it sounded. But instead he just looked me straight in the eyes and said “Yes.” At that point it felt like all three of my boundaries had been crossed and I felt defeated. By then it was late and we had to be up early for work. We both just broke down crying and tried to talk it out, then went to bed. I told myself I was going to think it over and figure out what I wanted to do the next day. Well, it’s been two weeks now and nothing’s happened but I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. I don’t like feeling like I’m being lied to, especially when it’s about something that could determine my decision on whether or not I want to stay with him.
((There is one other thing that I think is important to know, there was one other time where he crossed a boundary for me. It was earlier on in our relationship and again with IG, he was scrolling through his feed when I look over and noticed it’s all naked girls. We had a little disagreement about it and he said he’d unfollow them. He did unfollow them but there was one girl in particular, we’ll call her Abby, who he followed like six different accounts of hers, I got really in my head about it and secretly compared my body to hers for weeks. Well when this thing happened the other day Abby OF’s was one of the links visited recently. Which makes everything more suspicious for me. ))
I’ve broken down and brought it back up a few times, but his story stays the same. It seemed so impossible to believe at first, and even still… But I want to believe him so bad that a part of me does. He’s just so convincing. And in all other aspects has been a dream. I don’t know what to believe anymore.. I’ve never been on OF before, so maybe I just don’t know how it works? Could he be telling the truth? He swears up and down that he is… I guess I’m asking if other people think he’s lying. Or if someone knows something about how it all works, that I don’t. I don’t know what to do, I could really use anything..
