Oh well, that took a quick turn.
⚠️ EA is investigating after reports that an employee stole multiple Apex Legends accounts, possibly with the intent to sell them. These were often high-level accounts with heirlooms etc.

The theif is believed to have been identified, with legal action "certain to be taken."
Must be affecting their bottom line for EA to react this quick
 
2:20 AM
Huh. When I read the original post I thought that nobody could be that stupid, especially if they were an EA employee

Q: Make Trashcan Carla friendly again using commands

dsatIs there a way to make Trashcan Carla friendly again after you rob her? I tried things like disable and markfordelete but it didn't work.

@Yuuki I guess you can say "that's their loss"
 
9:08 AM
@Wipqozn Yeah, that checks out. Secretly I've been super active these past two years but everyone's just been filtering it out

@SaintWacko congrats!

@Nzall stupid corporate firewall blocking an obviously gaming site
 
That was the original letter
 
that works
 
6:13 PM
I think I got a promotion? Maybe?
Some presentation about broader team reorganization listed me as a Dev III and this is the first I'm hearing about that possibly being a thing
 
6:29 PM
I don't know if this is an error or a leak
and frankly I'm afraid to ask lol
so far it looks like an error
but it should be a leak
pay me
 
I was fully prepared for that to be a Friday link
 
@fredley Hang on... So the biggest social network in the world is focusing on VR? Why am I getting Ready Player One vibes from this?
 
7:11 PM
Steam Halloween Sale until Nov 1st
 
this image is more believable as a parody
the only way he could do more to evoke steve jobs would be to get cancer and try to cure it with a fruit diet
 
@Yuuki He probably would stay away from the Apples though

@Nzall metaverse is literally zucc having a hardon for RPO
 
7:26 PM
@Batophobia Nice TaleSpire is 25% off
Time to spice up my DnD campaign... if I had one in progress
 
@Fredy31 i've been debating between talespire and foundry
talespire is 3D and definitely looks cooler but foundry only needs to be purchased by the DM
 
@Yuuki the thing I always had a problem with buying foundry is that, god, their site make it look basic
and it being site based, if it a few years the site closes because the team behind it shits the bed, bye bye
 
i think there's a standalone app
 
7:36 PM
The thing I want to look at is is there a DM mode that basically 1 screen is spoilerless so you can stream that to your players, and the second screen has all the background details in it
 
you might be thinking of roll20?
 
yeah like R20
that you can hide parts of the map and reveal only when your players end there
its still Early Access, so I guess something like that must be in the cards if its not already there
But. yeah I was looking Foundry up because I was certain it was a subscription service, can't find any mention anywhere
its a 50$ once if I see that right
 
I wanna make my first jack o lantern (I'm from India) but we don't have those big orange colored pumpkins here. We have a bit greenish pumpkins and not very round. But i'm really eager to make it. Any suggestions/solutions/workaround?
 
Talespire looks league better (probably because its not stuck to have to run within the browser) and its only 25, now 20 CAD
@Vikas I often see those smaller green or white pumpkins used. Not for jack-o-lanterns, but as decoration
Also carving a pumpkin sucks because you can't do anything with the flesh of the pumpkin afterwards.
 
@Fredy31 yeah, so if I make using green, it will look weird and it won't be transparent like orange pumpkin, I feel
@Fredy31 I'll think about that later :D
 
7:42 PM
The orange pumpkin, when you carve it, is not transparent, you carve a hole to see the candle within
 
I wanna surprise my neighbourhood people
No one makes jack o lantern here
 
now idk if the green pumpkins have that space inside to even put a candle in
But yeah I'm impressed you can find a pumpkin at all in india
didn't think they could grow in that climate
 
@Fredy31 yeah they have a bit less height and more thick i think
@Fredy31 we have these:
 
@Fredy31 like i said, you might be confusing it with Roll20. Roll20 is a site-based web app with a subscription service and it's a 2D virtual tabletop like Foundry
 
 
7:46 PM
@Fredy31 how much support does it have for custom models though?
 
@Yuuki none as of now if i read right
@Vikas oh boy those are small boys
 
that raises a similar point where if the dev team collapses then, you're just left with the models and designs that they currently have available
 
@Fredy31 yeah small so I think no point in trying with them
 
Would be hard to fit the candle in it... Guess your easiest plan would be to take the orange one and draw with a sharpie
 
@Fredy31 do you know the pumpkin variety name that people in western countries use? Is it called Disco pumpkin?
 
7:48 PM
which is also a way to make a jack o lantern, a little less classic, but less mess
 
which, based on the last i saw, is rather medieval-oriented so there's not a lot of room for various other kinds of settings
 
I know several people that just paint something on a pumpkin
 
@Yuuki Foundry isnt browser based? Those graphics made me think it was so (because its not much better than R20)
 
@Fredy31 it's browser-based but not site-based, iirc
 
@Yuuki oh so its a program that runs on your PC but uses Chrome hunh. Idk I didn't search deep in that kind of DM tools
20$ for such a tool was not a huge investment
 
7:51 PM
it's a standalone web app that you can run on your computer and then your players would connect to it through their browsers
whereas Roll20 is site-based, you have to connect to it through their website
 
50, you start to be in 'let me think about it' territory
Yeah my last campain we were using R20 free for the grid
rolling our stuff manually
or in the browser, for the players that the DM didn't trust would not fudge their dice
 
@Vikas There's a lot of varieties that are used, but I think Autumn Gold is the most common
 
@Batophobia Google search shows the same which are used for lantern
Is Classic Orange pumpkin and Autumn Gold same?
Images show similar items
 
Not sure. I don't think "Classic Orange" is a unique variety so it's likely something like Autumn Gold or Connecticut Field
 
@Vikas keep in mind that traditionally in the US, Halloween is a much colder holiday than it is in India, so your pumpkin is going to rot significantly faster
 
8:01 PM
If you're curious, this is a pretty exhaustive list of the varieties
 
@Nzall lol. That's also a fact I didn't think about
@Batophobia thanks.
 
I'd recommend not using a real candle, though. Especially if you are limited to smaller options.
 
@Batophobia So I think the one we have in India is: Calabaza
@Batophobia I think I'll cancel my plan. It's not possible
 
i don't think people typically use edible pumpkins for jack-o-lanterns, do they?
 
@Vikas I guess your best plan would be to plant seeds next year.
 
8:04 PM
The goal was to "scare" people but eventually it might end up a comedy/funny scene people seeing a weird lantern 🤣
 
Probably. They have to clean out the guts anyway
 
@Fredy31 I was thinking about it. But I'll need to check if it can be grown in India or not
 
@Yuuki All pumpkins are edible, i'm pretty sure... just lots of people have no clue how to cook Pumpkin so they throw it in the trash
one of the stupidest wastes of ressources in current society, IMO
 
I'm sure it's possible to carve a smaller variety. There's likely a video on Youtube
 
@Fredy31 yeah, but decorative pumpkins aren't as palatable, iirc
 
8:05 PM
we have fields and fields of a vegetable that will be carved into and then trashed.
Well, pumpkin, as a taste, is usually not much
 
I'm jealous
 
Like put it with most things you wont taste it
And well, if you dont want to eat it, instead of trashing it, just go to the woods nearby and smash it against a tree. Deers and birds love that
Or compost it
 
yuuki why your avatar so angry? :P
 
I mean, I've seen plenty of pumpkins composted on a porch until the tree-chopping happens

You were suspended for violating our code of conduct. If you believe a moderator acted improperly by issuing you a suspension, feel free to contact the community team. We will not discuss this any further.
And I don't make threats. I promise that you will be suspended again if you continue violating the code of conduct.
 
@Vikas it's just resting angy face
 
@Unionhawk Moderators are prohibited from talking to users like you just did, e.g. "don't do ..., or you will be suspended". Go and read this janitor-exclusive tutorial you get in some section under gaming.stackexchange.com/admin and re-educate yourself in order; maybe that will slow down your power-tripping carvings for a while.
 
@BadChad If you would like to contact the community team, you are free to do so.
 
@Unionhawk How could you know if I haven't already done that? Your "feel free to do so" statement is of absolutely no value, and especially since users do not need a janitor's permission before contacting community team.
Look how many instances of offensive language are there in this chat alone, completely unchecked; meanwhile, I got 24 hour suspension for as little as comparing a certain group of users to children. Is "child" an offensive word from now on?
Gotta go, peace out.

weeee. we has some major storms last night with trees knocked down. some annexes have self destructed and woke up at about 5am in the dark thanks to the power going out hearing my mum's oxygen machine beep (she was turning it off but i thought the battery was running out)
though on a semi posative side it was the perfect sleeping weather for me......at least until i remembered i had work and to morrow is a hay run. why can't these storms ever be on a Saturday night
