Jake Munro mentioned this, and I just had to check...

You can get tattoo machines on Amazon!

This could go terribly, terribly wrong!

Oh yeah, same with piercing guns.

Thinking back to my mid-teens to early twenties, and the amount of Bic pen doodles I made on people's arms, it's probably for the best we didn't have such easy access to tattooing tools. Granted, there was a reason why they wanted me to decorate them, and at least 5 people run around with designs I made for them to this day. But imagine me, with undiagnosed ADHD and a tattoo machine. :D Things... and people would look a lot different than they do today.

I've never played a tab-targetMMO before (or at least not in a very long time or in much depth. If anyone here's played Pirates of the Caribbean online, was that a tab-target MMO?), and I've heard a lot of people talking up FF14. Would that be a decent place to start?

Two tab-target MMOs I still play for chill-out and while hearing podcasts are Rifts and Guild Wars 2. Neither feel too predatory in their monetization. Not really into Final Fantasy, so I haven't tried FF14.

I used to enjoy GW1, couldn't get into GW2.  Currently enjoying FF14, it's a beautiful game but the main draw for me is the cross platform & cross-progression capabilities - I can play with my boyfriend on my PC while he's on his PS4 & I can play on my account on my PS4 as well.

Alright... What is this that I'm hearing that the OK gesture is now signifying "White Power"?!

That was 4chan shenanigans back in 2017. Even ADL acknowledges it was a social engineering trolling campaign, and that it doesn't mean that "in most cases". Despite that, SJWs and grifters still weaponize any use of the OK sign as a percieved dogwistle, and an excuse to harrass and persecute individuals. On top of that, handing over innocuous gestures, words, actions and objects to unsavoury ideologies basically relinquishes control over cultural and social functions to said ideologies, making them stronger, more influential and taking up more and more space in social, cultural and political discourse.

I was cleaning up in my miniatures, and found some original Necromunda weapons. The crude sculpts were thrown into the bin for casting years ago, but I held on to the ones designed by Jes Goodwin. High detail, slender design and small enough, that they can go well with non-Games Workshop miniatures.

Small joys, I know, but we need these little wins once in a while. Especially in times like this.

I found out I have enough spare funds on the stimulus to get a 3D printer and I...really, really, really want to get one but I'm at a lose as to what I'd print often enough to justify getting it.

Emergency food rations and an extra gun might be a better investment at the moment, if we are to believe the underground media.

Personally, I could use a 3D printer for my hobbies and replicating small parts for repairs, but if you have to ask, then chances are you'll just end up with an endless supply of knick-knack taking up more and more space.

That being said, there are career opportunities in learning to use a 3D printer and its software. Makerspaces were a thing before the plague, and probably will be again. And we might see a more localized, easily adjustable manufacturing methodology in the near future.

Have someone tried 30XX? It's incredible, I'm not such a fan of rougelike games but this game is megaman on steroids. The music isn't that good imo (I opted ofr muting it and put some megaman ost) and they had some really questionable color pallette in some levels but the game is very responsive and the powers are cool af, it's a mashup of a lot of cool stuff from older megaman, megamn 8, megaman x series and then megaman zero / zx. Mandatory the use of some joystick/controller, I'm suing a cheap usb ps2 likie to play it and works fantastic.

Bold of you to assume I dont have an apocalypse plan and gear already.

Since it was announce the anime called Yasuke it reminded me of a post I put up about a Samurai concept I created. Here is the trailer of the anime along with my Samurai concept and what it looks like, tell me what you think.

It could be justified depending on if you get enjoyment on using it and make it not be a whimp or... as we say here: fen fire (burns out fast).

I'm not sure on how your lifestyle goes, but you could make some pretty things with a 3D Printer and make a small store, maybe cosplays pieces to sell on E-bay, I'm nto sure on copyright laws about those tbh. Thats a business perspective.

As to WHAT to print often enough, you could look at some media outlets for inspiration. Ornamental vases, plants, small bonsai trees, dolls, action figures, animals.

I speak as someone who is completely ignorant on how a 3D printer works, how much work it makes to do something and how much the one you have in mind could do, so I will throw ideas at you.

But one of the things I AM sure of is that you can make decorations even the simplest things can be pretty if well made, like a few small steel wire trees I'm making here as a hobby... the problem is finding a BASE to put them.

I'm being biased here, but I LOVE house decorations, hell, If I could, I would buy so many wooden toys to make an bookcase filled with them, put ceramic carnival masks on a few walls... I got that from my mother, one of the things she always got as a gift from her students were pretty, fully decorated coffee mugs, of course, she could nevr use them all, so she made me drill a few holes on a cabinet's bottom and put hooks there, now its filled and decorated with many mugs.

In the end though, its on how often you think of using it and how much you will like using it.

If you want inspiration I will do a shameless self-promotion of my country and look at Brazillian Craftmanship or "Artesanato brasileiro" if you want to find more in-country results;

Here some exemples:

But simple things are usually the most beautiful ones imo.

I'm adding collagen to my diet in the hope of alleviating some of the wear and tear on my joints. I've had good results with glucosamine capsules, but one widely documented side effect is glaucoma, and since I got diabetes already, it seems like a bit too much  of a risk to still taking it on a daily basis (and it is expensive as hell).

So the plan is to take 2500mg of collagen peptides in capsule form daily, and supplement with food grade gelatin (much cheaper and pretty much the broken down collagen you get from making bone broth) when I make soups and ramen. I also have plans to make bone broth from the ground up, but that's 16-36 hour projects, so gelatin powder is a somewhat easier source to deal with.

Both established research and folk medicine and cuisine points to a whole host of benefits to consuming connective tissue, both completely broken down as in broths, as well as things like pigs ears and chicken feet. Soft tissue replacement, vascular health, inflamation management, even cognitive performance.

I might as well try this out. If nothing else, I'll have pretty skin. :D

@(PSN)Vexx757 by all respect, but posting a concept even if it reminded you on a new anime is just disrespectful. Your concepts are also just good, but not great. There are neither unique or somehow special. They are actually just tools with ability which were just forged together.

I will be more specifc about your concept in the actual thread.

The only thing which mine 3d-printer printed until now were pokemons and "beste Mama" (best mum). But I'm thinking about to print a metalmachinedramon someday.

I'm sold.  

Talked to the boyfriend, he's encouraging me to get one because mini's for game night.  Plus, I want to give epoxy resin stuff a try and I can print my own molds this way.
