  1. So, I don't know if there's anyone out there who makes a lot of Cosplay and might be able to answer a question for me, but I thought this might be the place to ask. I'm working on the Manduka Operator Suit hoodie/jacket thing for TennoCon, and I've gotten decently far along, but I've run into one odd issue. The sleeves have some structure in the upper arms that's very irregular. I've bought some Flexfoam, which I plan to use in the hood to help it keep it's shape once I've "quilted" in all of the decorative lines, and I planned to use the same stuff to make this shoulder adornment and the further decoration at the end of the sleeves, but I really don't know the best way to go about using and covering it, if I'm even on the right track. I had planned to make the actual sleeve one piece of fabric, and add this decoration on top to help keep the sleeve itself even and properly fitting. The issue I have is making the foam do what I want, and then covering it in such a way that I don't end up with puckers and badness at the end of it all. Does anyone know of a good way to get these shapes and cover them well? I've searched the internet for help and come up empty, mostly because I don't know how to search for this problem. If I need to go out and get a different material, I can. I'm just at a bit of a loss. So far I've managed to get everything else looking semi-decent, so I'd hate to fall down and mess the sleeves up terribly. Thanks in advance for any advice! <3
  2. Unfortunately Rebecca, I think this is another case where DE will have to do a lot of the work themselves in creating a good way for this to work. I agree with above posts though, that ideally this should all be in game. As a Guide of the Lotus, I get a ton of questions about basic data, not just drop rates but things like raw numbers for damages or simpler questions like what weapons unlock at what Mastery Ranks. It's hard for me to constantly alt-tab to wiki the information, as my PC doesn't like to minimize and maximize Warframe repeatedly. For players less familiar with both the game and wiki, that's an even bigger obstacle. I do agree with a lot of the suggestions above, though. There should be a secondary menu, maybe built into the Codex and/or Navigation UIs, that allow this information to be accessed at will, in game, in an effective manner. It means more coding, and that it would take longer to implement, but overall it would be a boon to players and the community in general. Even if it makes the UI a little more complicated. Pioneering this kind of transparency, though, would be amazing in ways I don't think DE quite understands. Void_Glitch, regardless of if you agree with him or if what he was doing was right or wrong, was obviously providing a sought after service that at the least the wiki has made ubiquitous use of. I know even devs have and do rely on the wiki as well, so the raw stats are incredibly useful. Also, there have been cases, as pointed out, where the datamined data have helped to highlight issues and resolve them when, for whatever reason, errors have made their way into the client side coding. With that in mind, please leave in some way to keep the data clean. Some kind of automation that reads the data as it enters the game and posts the stats as they change would help with this. Human error happens, we've seen it before. But I think that knowing as much of that human error is worked out of that system as possible would go a long way towards validating the data. Even with the helpful tips on loading screens we've seen discrepancies where the "facts" that show up aren't properly updated to match the game as things are constantly tweaked and changed. A system that automatically updates the data sheets with changes as they make it into the code would help solve this problem, and provide real time data to DE and the community both as stats are tweaked and changed, especially if those changes aren't intentional. Making it a sheet that has to be changed by hand with everything that's altered as it happens would be a giant time investment that would only grow more inaccurate with time, no matter how well cultivated.
  3. Also remember that Baro won't have anything new that trip. Just everything he's ever had previously up until that point. So you won't be missing out on anything exclusive if you don't see him :)
  4. I don't know, since this year will be bigger than last year. Last year they did have a Lunaro competition, though, so that at least was possible for cooperative gamplay. I think it may come down to if/how many computers DE will have access to to bring to the Con. I'd expect at least a few, but lines were long last year for them, so it'll likely be worse this year. If my memory serves, they also had little "arcade" games of things like Flappy Zephyr last year, and I think this year they teased something on Twitter about an "escape room" where you'd have to work to hack panels in real life. So there will be things to do that are gameplay-ish. I just don't know if it will be an actual lanparty type thing.
  5. Stupid question but, instead of fighting to clean install, have you run a Verify and Optimize of your download cache through the launcher? It's easier to find by the sound of things and may fix some of your issues. If you don't know what that is, when you open your Warfame launcher, click the little gear at the top right. Verify first, then Optimize. It may fix your issue, or lessen it, without having to do a clean install.
  6. I don't doubt that something changes in the ee.log when you enter a match, nor that that may have something to do with drops. I'm just saying for relics in particular that doesn't make any sense. Furthermore, any info I've seen on the game working in that way is seriously out of date, so I have serious doubts.
  7. I highly doubt this, if only due to the refinement system. It would entirely go against the idea of having refining relics give higher drop chances if those chances were tied only to the host.
  8. I think this is part of why Vaulting still exists. There are still a few prime things that are "harder" to obtain than their normal counterparts, if only because their relics are no longer obtainable. That said, there are still some fairly easy to get warframes, especially in the lower level planets like Mercury, Venus, and Mars (I wouldn't call killing Vey Hek on Earth "easy" but it is do-able, just tedious). Also remember that some of these normal iterations of warframes were put into boss fights years ago, long before their prime versions. Valkyr is a great example, as she's been the reward for defeating Alad V on Jupiter since her release. Granted, that's not really a difficult fight if you know what you're doing, and it's laughably easy as a veteran, but I would still say farming him is far simpler than getting Valkyr Prime if only because all of the parts drop in the same place, and you know you're going to get one of her parts each run. Barring a few bosses like Kela de Thaym, I would argue that most frames are still easier to get than their primes, if only in the number of steps involved. As a new player, unless you have easy access to relic shares, farming for a prime requires quite a few steps. You need to find out what relics you need, go to at least two different kinds of missions to obtain them, some of those quite decently high level for Axi relics, and then further unlock those relics in the correct fissure missions. Moreover, unlike a boss fight, opening a relic doesn't guarantee you a part of the prime you're after, even if it's fully refined. Boss fights are also generally easy to find, they're marked on your star chat and it's next to impossible not to run across them as a normal part of map progression. So yes, while there are a few warframes whose prime is far easier to farm than its normal variant (I'm looking at you Vauban Prime), I would still argue that most base frames are still easier to obtain in the current system.
  9. So, instead of dressing myself up, I decided to dress up my best friend instead. Our puppy, aptly named Kubrow, sporting Valinn armor. He's not mature enough for combat yet, so the armor just confused him, which is why he just tried to eat the faceplate that I made him. Oh well, I still think he looks adorable. The face plate is pictured with the other pieces in the pictures in the spoiler, just not being worn. I don't think hot glue and cardboard are recommended substitutions in the Kubrow diet. Grineer are a far more nutritionally balanced regimen. Don't worry pup, you'll be out hunting the bad guys soon enough.
  10. If you want a real Void Worm, you should look at this: Made of Anasa Scluptures and Orta Sculptures.
  11. Early in the game all of the lore pointed towards us fighting to keep the "Balance", e.i. fighting to make sure no one faction gained total control and ruined everything. I think that's still the idea, but little has been elaborated on it recently.
  12. It sounds like a misunderstanding. I think the employee was thinking they wanted to start that account over fresh, not seeing that they were (seemingly) asking if they should start over with a fresh account. That said, I can see his frustration. I'll see if I can't help the best that I can. Since he's been gone for so long, most things on his account should be "fresh" anyway. Also, if he's a Founder, I wouldn't suggest starting over when he has so little started since he would loose any Founder's status by making a new account. He should have the beginning of the tutorial to do (Vor's Prize), as well as the star chart mostly "locked" so he can go through Junctions and stuff as though he hadn't been through any of it yet. If he doesn't have any mods, again, that's not far off from where he'd be with a fresh account either. Most of the beginning missions on Earth and other early planets will drop at least "Damaged" versions of needed mods like Serration, which can get him started on experimenting with builds, although I wouldn't advise him putting too much work into Damaged mods. They're just a bandaid until you can get the full version of the mod. If he has any questions on basic stuff, feel free to have him add or message me, or you can for him, and I'd gladly pass on what I know. Moreover, if he wants to try, there's a thread here: That has a basic rundown of what's changed over time. If he's willing to go through the reading, he may find it helpful. Lastly, there are people in the game now called Guides of the Lotus (I happen to be one). We're veterans picked by Digital Extremes with the task of trying to teach people about the game since it does change so drastically and so often. We tend to lurk in places like Region Chat, or on Relays like Larunda, helping people. If he runs into any of us, we may also be able to help, even if it's just by answering some questions he may have. Otherwise, the Players Helping Players Subforum is a great resource, as is the wiki (warframe.wikia.com).
  13. If someone is just being "annoying", it shouldn't take having to permanently ban a player to keep them out. While I agree the feature might be useful, if someone is going so far as to change their name to repeatedly rejoin a clan, or harassing/tricking other members of the clan to rejoin, the issue is bigger than just being "annoying". That kind of behavior is harassment, whether it be against a member of the clan or against the entire population of the clan. At the very least, reporting these people to support gives DE a documented trail of their behavior which they can use to take action against them if necessary. Moreover, while it is "complicated" to report someone (or multiple people) in this manner, it leaves a much more detailed trail that can be followed to see if this player is causing bigger issues that may not be already known about. The vast majority of just "annoying" players will give up after a kick and an ignore. What you're describing is more than that.
  14. From what I know they can't be gifted because they're being bought through Steam's market, and not DE's, so there's no easy system to put in place to gift them from one account to another. So far, the best way I know of to "gift" them, is to do something like buy them a Steam gift card and have them buy it themselves.
  15. This is the kind of person Support exists for, and I'm being completely serious here. This kind of behavior can constitute harassment, and should be reported in a Support ticket with all the evidence you have available, including screen shots. Submit everything that has happened, and everything you know about what they've done to continue stalking you and put it in that support ticket, including all of the aliases that you know of that they've switched to and the last one you know of them having. It may not be an "instant" resolution, but they should be able to help you with this and perhaps prevent this person from doing this to other people as well.
