I swear I just noticed a couple more things of yours on sale that weren't on sale earlier this month. I think I bought about a dozen of your sets this month for just a dollar each. I feel like I'm taking advantage of you or something. Thank you. A lot.
Also, thanks for making things simple to cut and build. I got an autocutter as a gift, but I really like being able to take a bunch of printouts with me somewhere and cut them out with a scissors. I can't do that with a lot of stuff because its too complicated for scissors. Either need a hobby knife or autocutter.
I don't use robocutters, so I need to be able to build everything using just scissors and an X-Acto. I've kind of embraced the fact that my models are easy to build, although I know there are folks who say my models look too "flat" and would prefer more gribbly bits. I consider it a feature, not a bug.
Couldn't agree more Mister G. I like the fact that I can print, cut and assemble most of your models on my knee while I'm watching the TV in an evening after a hard day, and I know they're going to look great on the table. Win-Win. There are one or two with fiddly bits- such as staircases, but even then, it's a matter of patience, not complexity.
I have no need for extra gribbly bits on your models (though an extension pack with awnings, bay windows, porches, shop signs and other street dressing would be good). I do crave some with a less rectangular footprint so I can make more crooked streets, but at a push I can just fiddle with the geometry in the photoshop files. And that's the beauty of DGM.
Building a New Elysium. 29 buildings and counting...
I will totally second the idea of having an expansion pack of awnings and bay windows etc! I've been kitbashing them for my own models (using both DGM and Fat Dragon parts), but a set of additional street-side bits would be awesome.

shep: Give us the temple!

Vermin King: I'll want to look again tomorrow, but I think I have the temple ready to print

squirmydad: Are you musing or is this open to a vote? I vote Egyptian temple.
Dec 5, 2018 19:14:53 GMT -9
Vermin King: Either that or an Egyptian Temple

Vermin King: Tried to do some design work last night and it didn't go anywhere. So I went through the hard drive. I think my next project will be cleaning up and scaling a Honda Quad model that they released ages ago

Vermin King: Well, not up-chucking, but remaining upright and walking straight lines wouldn't really happen for about 8 hours

squirmydad: I always got seasick the very first day of every season, then never again no matter how bad the ocean got. I didn't get sick returning to dry land after two months of chasing fish, but I did walk like a drunk for two days until my land legs came back.

Vermin King: That's about like me on the ocean in small boats. I never get seasick until I am back on dry land

shep: And don't get too used to the aftershocks or you won't be able to sleep, if the ground does not rattle...
Dec 3, 2018 11:23:35 GMT -9
squirmydad: Two cats, one dog, and they've all been very high-strung for the last three days. I don't know if they can sense the quakes before me, but I think they are just as tired of the constant aftershocks as I am.

Vermin King: could just be the small number of videos I've seen with dogs and cats in them
Dec 2, 2018 16:56:34 GMT -9
Vermin King: Do you have pets? I've always heard how animals seem to freak out just prior to earthquakes, but every video I've seen with animals, the animals look at their owners like 'what the heck is your problem?'. Not freaking out at all.

squirmydad: I've lost track of the hundreds of aftershocks that have rippled through.
Dec 2, 2018 15:04:43 GMT -9
squirmydad: There's a cocktail recipe that a FB friend posted; Pour all ingredients into glass, wait, please enjoy your drink after the aftershock has thoroughly mixed the ingredients.

shep: Hey, squirmydad, always remember that booze is THE #1 survival gear...

uptrainfan89: I see WWG website is down yet again...
Dec 1, 2018 10:12:26 GMT -9
squirmydad: I'm supposed to boil water before drinking, heat, roof and walls are all good. One of the surviving liquour stores is having a 7% off sale in honor of the quake, so I have drinking options.
