i think once u pass the 1000-year point, people start realizing how crazy long that is and that you'd probably experience going insane and probably not want to do that. the fact you wouldn't remember it after coming back though is what makes this a tantalizing option though - do we subject ourselves to a seemingly infinite span of time to go insane to improve a future self of our past self, once that time is up? are we really the same person given so much time and thoughts/insanity has been lost in the process?

Minecraft was (is) the most successful moddable game of all time so you bringing it up as a negative example makes no sense at all.
just piping in on phantos' behalf here - the issue he brought up is not that a game that had terrible mod support tacked on as an afterthought/mod support completed way after release can't be successful, but that it takes years (nearly a decade for mc) for modding support to actually be fully integrated when treated as a "feature" of a game rather than as the foundation of it.

im guessing the difference you missed is "lets make a game with modding support" vs "lets make a game using the modding framework we developed". the first will take a lot longer to reach full moddability state while the second is moddable out of the gate. there's definitely downsides with the second approach (much harder to add core features, optimize engine, etc once the modding system is locked in), but the foundation of moddability is how BL has always worked and attracted developers despite how stuff the engine is, so you should keep that in mind.

I honestly thought the ending wasn't too bad, just rushed. If D&D had taken the extra 2 seasons and fleshed everything out properly I feel like it would have been way better.
going by the little ive seen of the existing eps, the fact they tried to rush-close the series is super obvious. its really unfortunate as the source story has a lot of potential satisfying ways to end it, but they took a simplified route in closing out/breaking off the multiple storylines.

p90. something about the shape and how you grip it just feels right.

this looks incredibly useful for server hosts, who can easily modify this to be a really robust data log

glad to see you modding once again

you know you guys are further proving her point right
shes pulling a tony - “i dont need to post sources cause youd discredit them anyways”

its an argumentative form of conspiracy theorism - “you guys are missing the point -> if i argue you’ll be argue back showing you arent giving my arguments good faith” >> either we cant discuss anything cause “its wrong and we’re missing the point” and thus nothing is learned or discussed, keeping our perspectives ignorant and giving her the high ground, or we argue and discuss and “we’re proving her right”

also you could be like me and just put your opinions and thoughts for those who care, and not bother with retorts. then the people you want to speak to can see your posts while those who are just looking for a debate waste their own time.

i feel its dangerous to say “my perspective will just get picked apart” cause it means you aren’t putting your beliefs on the table, leading you to adopt them as patently true unless by some chance you see an argument against your beliefs that convinces you. it kinda goes against the “educate and diversify yourself” mentality that people need to grow. though i get that nobody wants to do that all the time, everywhere - i just hope you dont have the same perspective facing all communities that potentially might debate you on your position.

by a little too optimistic are you saying we’re worse than you expect? cause honestly from what ive sene this is mostly memeing and ironic stuffposting with the occasional actual discussion. only in the most cloistered of internet communities will you get pure discussion without memeing, and often those communities are like that cause its a self-selected “serious discussion” community and therefore missing some perspective from non-members

say what you will about the blf but its a relatively tame proving ground compared to what i understand is out there. here the self selection is largely people prone to nostalgia and people who enjoy playing with legos, so imo its as unbiased as you can probably get, minus the gender demographics. theres just the ever present vocal minority from both sides, though the liberal vocal minority has kinda died down from what i can see.

legit i feel the same way. theres still toxicity now and then but its not endemic as it used to be. people have largely grown up and stopped making 10-words-or-less purely flaming posts these days.

this is how pointless political fighting is bred. as soon as both sides assign bad faith to the other and stop presenting and defending and arguing stances. you can believe what you say khaz, but that’s avoiding the problem and any chance of resolution. without communication the problem only gets worse as the circlejerk becomes bigger as the opposing side stops participating.

i get though that it might not have much of a point here on a lego forum. but i personally at least always take away something from the perspectives i see on here. and imo the chance that someone gets something out of what i say outweighs any amount of hate i get from saying it - its not like their stuffposts and flaming matter in the end.
