Well ain't that precious?

Speaking of minecraft modding, Flowerchild was also one of those idiots who insisted on using adfly for all the download links to their mods, a site full of malware advertisements, so they could make a fraction of penny after thousands of people download their mod.

It's not even a fallacy. These motherfuckers think that just because you describe something in Latin it's some spell to abjure whatever someone's point is (see also "ad hominem").

About paid mods: Wasn't one of the issues also that authors could have free mods as dependencies, but not the other way around, so someone could take a cool armor or something from a modders' resource, make a paid mod with it, and never have to compensate anyone?
The issue was that the modding community had been working pro bono for years, so it was no big deal if someone said, "Hey, can I include your sword/armor/titcrabs in my collection?" But when those people turned around and started charging for things they hadn't developed, and especially since the Steam system didn't have any way to divvy up the profits, "modding resource" creators suddenly started questioning whether that made sense.

Not really? I mean, people were throwing shitfits over their precious copyright long before Valve came up with the paid-modding thing. And the dark age of paid-modding only lasted 4 days. Other then outing a handful of modders as dickbags, I don't think it really had any sort of lasting effect on the modding community.

My favorite Flowerchild story is the one where he declared war against Technic and then he and his mod became irrelevant and Technic paved the way for the legitimization of easy-to-acquire mod packs.

He did this against the rising tide of Mod packs and Player-adjustable configs while doubling down on his strange Wolf-torture and animal BDSM shticks, ensuring that he offered the most unappealing choice on all fronts.

see: all the modders who protested against stolen mods/bethesda.net who took down their mods and then put them back up after like 4 days because they can't live without the constant fellatio the nexus community provides

Which is doubly funny because let's be honest, like 50% of the mechanics in Minecraft were done at random, and back when he was big in modding it was closer to 90% done at random.

See, by saying a portal to the nether has to be exactly ten obsidian blocks, instead of ten or more obsidian blocks, you've created a more sophisticated game. A player could collect more of the difficult to obtain material, and make a bigger gate than normal, but then the gameplay experience for that player wouldn't be exactly the same as any other player's. That would be something a filthy casual would do.

What, you can't make smaller portals, just larger ones? That's like the only reasonable objection I can think of.

Yeah, ole' dinnerbone decided that players should be allowed to make bigger portals to hell if they want to, but even after the change a portal has to be at least two blocks wide and three blocks high. The only way it's "easier" to make a portal now is if you don't remember what shape a portal has to be, you can just throw down any ole' rectangle instead of looking it up on the wiki.

He did the exact same thing when he started modding Kerbal Space Program, too, even going so far as to revamp the tech tree in a manner that made it so there was one and exactly one "correct" way of progressing, so narrowly-defined that if you did things in any other way, unlocked techs or visited planets in any other order than the one he decreed, you were basically screwed and had to restart because there wouldn't be enough science available to unlock what you need.

You forgot the one-sided rows he had with the devs when they wouldn't listen to his suggestions.

He also absolutely hated Hohmann Transfer Orbits for some reason, (For those that don't know, Hohmann Transfer Orbits are one the most efficient methods of traveling between bodies, and KSP values efficiency) so he nerfed Solar Power into oblivion and made all of the batteries ridiculously heavy to try and force you into making inefficient direct transfers instead.

That reminds me of the Space Engineers modder that got obsessive about Solar Panels being far too efficient because the game was clearly set in Earth's asteroid belt (pre-Planets) and thus wouldn't get as much power as being on Earth due to the increased distance from the Sun.

He maintained this argument even when a Solar Panel Engineer got in on the discussion and told him how incorrect he was due to rising efficiency in current designs and the like. Solar Panels in the game already produce mere kW of power, barely enough to keep the lights and a few thrusters on, so it's not like they're all too useful to start with.

I meant that the tail looked shoddy and low-effort compared to the rest of her. But the battle thong makes its placement look odd, too.

It's... not that bad really. I mean, for a alphabet-soup-body-replacer armor it actually provides protection for the entire body and seems like it would be somewhat practical to wear.

Honestly the worst you can really point out about it is maybe the boobplating, and even then it's not obscene GG-cups or something, I guess. I wouldn't quite call it practical, but it certainly at least looks like ceremonial armor.
