Otherworld and The Star Lost aren't too bad for a boring three days off.

@  Echowarrior : (17 May 2021 - 09:54 PM)

I've had to do fix fics for my own fix fics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 02:19 PM)

"Fix fics" are their own entire category of fanfiction.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 May 2021 - 01:32 PM)

Is fanfic "fixing" an author's story? (Often it is, I think.)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 May 2021 - 12:15 PM)

I don't think people repainting and such are nessicarly "Fixing" a toy, just modding it to their likes. The problem is when they go around claiming to have "Fixed' it, that I feel it becomes a problem.

@  CORVUS : (17 May 2021 - 08:41 AM)

"I was gonna buy some Toyhax labels for Earthrise Auto-Whatsit, but since I'd be disrespecting the artistic expression of the designers, I think I'll just forget the whole thing."

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:41 AM)

Like, in general, not going into specific bands or covers. Because I could point out plenty of repainted toys I didn't like as much as the original, too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 May 2021 - 06:39 AM)

Is a musician covering a song "fixing" it?

@  Nevermore : (17 May 2021 - 05:15 AM)

So, then, isn't redecoing or retooling an existing toy also "fixing" someone else's art?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 10:07 PM)

A toy is not on the same level as a piece of drawn art, true, but it is 100% an entertainment product.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 05:05 PM)

A toy is an object of utility, Comparing that to a piece of drawn art is grossly ignoring the difference between the two. Also, you didn't answer my questions. Try again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:25 PM)

Part of the difference is that those covers are primarily one person's art. Sure, you probably have an inker and a colorist, but the lines and composition are one person. A toy however is a team design at pretty much all levels.

@  Cyoti : (16 May 2021 - 03:52 PM)

toymaking is a collaborative process, you have to make compromises and factories are going to get things wrong

@  tigerhawk : (16 May 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Earthrise had a few holes, Runamuck's legs YIKES!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 03:37 PM)

I doubt that say, the designer for Kingdom Cheetor was happy about every bit of unpainted plastic on it.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:28 PM)

J Scott Campbell recently had his Spiderman cover "fixed" by someone online. A few weeks ago, someone on twitter "fixed" someone's Sonic the Hedgehog fan art where Sonic, Tails and Knuckles were drawn as humans. Both times and other times, the "fixer" gets called out and criticised as you shouldn't go around "fixing" someone else's art because its rude and disrespectful to the original artist. And I was thinking isn't "fixed your s*** for ya" exactly what toy customisers do?

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

Have you ever changed your car in any way whatsoever compared to the factory configuration, or are you leaving the designer's art unchanged in that case as well?

@  CORVUS : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

It's best not to ponder it too hard.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 04:16 AM)

Bass X0, I really wonder sometimes how you come up with these random tangents apropos of nothing.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:11 AM)

It's collaborative art.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 04:07 AM)

Toys are subject to budget constraints, so its not like customizing would ruin the designer's vision or whatever.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:38 AM)

Isn't customising a toy just "fixing other people's art"?

That might actually be a fake noise they make electric cars make so pedestrians can hear them. Some cars even let you pick out what noise they make.

Played it for an hour or so. I'm not really a big fan of tower defense, but it seemed alright. The character models are really nice. I'm not down with pay-to-win, though. This would be pretty fun without it, just like Battle Tactics would have been. I'd rather just buy the game and have it, but I do realize that pay-to-win brings more profit.

I'm playing it until I get really burnt out and bored or I get Rust Dust and can read her bio.

So... I got a 2 star Starscream, so now there are two Starscreams running around my base. Clearly this means Megatron shall fall, and then they'll have to fight it out for which one gets to lead.

Got another Victorion component from a 2* crystal, 2* Jumpstream. That makes 3.

Has anyone else gotten Bumblebee yet? His ability is an AoE EMP which affects defensive buildings. It also doesn't take much energy, so I can usually fire it off 2-3 times in a row. Makes a huge difference in most fights, even more than Ratchet healing my team.

Quite enjoying this, for now. I like the characters and their models.

My team thus far is:
Optimus.
Jumpstream.
Sunstreaker.
Ironhide.
Ratchet.
Jetfire.
Firefly.
Silverbolt.

The character designs are an interesting mix of aesthetics, with some like Optimus going full G1, while others are there CW designs, and still others are a hybrid of elements from across there various incarnations. Although Sunstreaker seems like a hybrid of his Universe and CW versions in robot mode. While being the Dead End(?) mold in vehicle mode, rather than the Breakdown mold.. Weird. Then there's Silverbolt, who seems like he's nicked Unite Warriors Scattershots guns and chest design.

By the way, has abyone on the Spark made an alliance?

I did drop $5 on it, but I don't plan on dropping much on this.  I've been playing clash of clans for over 3 years and have maybe dropped $50 total on that game over that period of time.  I don't plan on dropping any more than that on this one.  I just love that you can still play and fight others without dropping much money.  You won't win the game, but you'll have fun playing it.

I just got a two star Firefly, while having a one star Firefly. This is the one part i think is weird. I mean, you're going to end up with a lot of duplicate characters at different star levels. Wonder why they did it that way instead of simply letting the player combine their duplicate to boost their levels. It would lead to a lot less confusion.

And mean that you won't have three or four Optimus Primes wondering around your base.

Still, i like the game. Its fun without being to complex, and the pay to win thing doesn't bother me. Its just a nice way to pass the time. We do need an Allspark alliance though.

Maybe an update will intro the. beast Wars gang. For now you'll have to settle for Dinobot Grimlock Walky.

Slag and Headstrong are apparently coming soon.

-ZacWilliam, I can't see this game holding me too much longer. It already takes two days to earn the resources to get stuff at the level I am now and then like 8hrs after that to build them. If that gets much worse I'm likely out.

Game has my interest for now. I'll echo the comments that we need to get an Allspark alliance going. If we can't have a mixed Autobot/Decepticon alliance, we'll need two separate alliances, one for those of us that chose Autobots and one for those of us that chose Decepticons.
