Hahaha, that sounds way too familiar, I have a bunch of texture files in a folder, I keep thinking to myself that I need to organize it. I even bought a program a while back on sale just for downloading premade textures on their site that I can modify and use in Photoshop called Filter Forge (and commercially use if need be), lol.
That's still a neat texture, kinda a liquid chrome!

This project isn't complete without the box trailer build. I firmly believe that a set is three or more. For the set to be complete, I need the box trailer. Especially since it only needs built. Last night I revisited this, looking at the files, looking for mistakes. I don't see any. This has to be on my short list
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

2nd wettest May on record...
As far as the Cat version, I think I am going to modify the front end to be more Semi-like. I'm thinking of creating a bonnet, which got me away from doing my YRC build. I also was looking up Alien stuff

Had a bit of a hiccup with the YRC version. The other day when I was getting ready to print, page 3 looked too dark and too red, like my first version, so I went into Gimp and double checked the color, picking the yellow-orange from page 1 and pasting, with no visual difference to the page in Gimp. pulled up the pdf again, and still looked dark. Back to Gimp. Using color select, I deleted the color from page 3 and paint filled with the color from page 1, etc. and when I pulled up the pdf, it was still too dark and too red, but I thought maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me. So I printed and it didn't look as bad, but not right. Went ahead and built it and when I installed it, it was too dark and too red. So I went back to my blank sleeper page (page 3) and started from scratch, laying it out on my color palette page, and exported the new versions. And It Looked Right! Printed a new sleeper unit and proceeded to cut off the old sleeper. Have yet to install it
As far as the more truck-like front end. I came up with something that will fit over the front end, but the Onager is not 'slab-sided'. It has angled surfaces, and the overlay kept having to be tweaked and I'm not happy with it. Maybe the Onager needs to just stay an Onager
EDIT 2 --
While removing the sleeper, I somewhat smooshed the left side of the cab, so I removed it, too. I hear of folks cutting out parts that aren't quite right, and I always thought they were leaning a bit too much towards the perfectionist side. Now I am one of them ...
Coyotepunc: Thanks, guys. He's still pretty sick, but no trouble breathing. So we are staying away from the hospitals, so the people who truly need them can use them.

squirmydad: My supervisor's state of mind; she's been climbing the walls begging to put us back in the game. All of Maintenance and Administration are still out, but my supervisor wants to invent projects to bring us back in.

Vermin King: So, essentially, what was so essential today?
Apr 7, 2020 13:16:18 GMT -9
squirmydad: I've been declared "Essential" for today only. Off to work, paper-crafting tonight then.

wyvern: Anecdotally, a number of people seem to have been ill with a protracted 'flu-like illness since last winter (NOT Covid-19). I had 'flu for two months from mid December myself. Unhelpfully, my symptoms included cough + fever, identical to Covid-19.

Vermin King: Best of luck with that, Coyotepunc. Being sick since 03/17, I can somewhat relate to your condition, but I don't have the worry of my kid having problems on top of my own. All the best, sir

alloydog: @coyotepunc - even at 30+, they still yer babies! Not that they appreciate being called that!

alloydog: Of course, it doesn't help if the mucus is in the trachea.
Apr 7, 2020 1:13:33 GMT -9
alloydog: old squirmydad mentioned fennel tea. If that sort of thing is not for you, or is hard to get, I saw a WHO video where they said to drink plenty of warm/hot drinks, such as tea, coffee, even milk, because it helps shift mucus from the throat to the stomach.

Coyotepunc: So it's going to be a long night of taking his temp every hour... he's 19 but still my baby

Coyotepunc: I've been dealing with a variety of covid-19 symtpoms since January, except for the fever (12% of cases have no fever.) My kid woke up with almost all the symptoms including high fever today.

squirmydad: Bag is handy, if you find it loose use the seeds, but then you need something like an infuser or it's a mess.

shep: most likely bag...

ignatious: just out of curiosity squimrydad, for the tea seed, frond, or bulb?

Vermin King: My friend Mike brought a sword to his church last night, but since he was there recording his sermon for today, he thought it would be okay

Vermin King: No, this is the first time I have heard of it

squirmydad: Have you tried fennel tea to ease some of your bronchial issues? I like it and it seems to help me.

Vermin King: But I should be good for at least another week before I will need to head out for restocking anything
