Since the previous reached bump limit.

Played some moar Atom RPG. I don't really have any coherent text drafted but some impressions, moments and such.

This game is depressing. It's like they extracted all the misery of the Soviet Union, ground it, added a hint mutants and monsters, then crammed it into one misery-sausage. Ofc there are funny lines and situations in there, always when you least expect. And you never expect them because the whole thing is so depressing.
NPC interactions are animated nicely. Heart warming meeting of father and daughter. Then they started to gossip about me.

reminds me of warcraft 2

So I got Atom too when it was on discount on GOG. It does look like the Fallout 3 we never got and has a nice warsaw pact touch, not just russia. Unfortunately it doesn't run on my machine very well even on lowest settings and it can run New Vegas without problems.

But I'm going to talk about different game I also got recently. It's called Underrail and it follows same principles: post apo, turn based rpg. If there was any introduction to the lore I must have missed it, but what I have learned is that humanity now lives underground in old metro stations and tunnels but also in deep caverns below. Some stations seems to form independent city-states but some factions like NCR who wish to unify humanity also exists. Also people can be psionics now too.
Game focus the most on fights and dungeon crawling. They're are pretty hard (don't play above normal difficulty) and you need to utilize everything you have most of the time and prepare to smash that F9 button a lot. Even the first enemy, the rathounds, although not very strong alone will swarm you and kill you with numbers. But also the very first combat trick you learn is that you can throw flare at them and scare them away giving you precious time to gun them down. On a different quest I had to go through a level filled with sentry bots and cameras and there couple of ways you could handle that situation:
- Frontal attack that would make you die of shame 99% of the time as the bots would stunlock you with tasers and flashbangs
- sneak around them
- if you didn't invest in sneaking skills you could find an omnitool some rooms earlier that would allow you to access vents and move around the map with lower risk of being detected
- also you could find EMP grenades in some of those rooms that would make the fight pretty easy (or just buy them before quest)
Bypassing enemies entirely is a viable option since you don't get xp from kills. Instead you get it only from quests and oddities that you find lying around various places or as a rare drop from a monster (unless you choose to play with a classic xp option). You get xp from certain type of oddity only few times so farming it this way is not really an option. Looting and scavenging is limited too, as merchants will only buy limited amount of goods in period of time. For example, during one visit he tells you he will buy only up to 4 firearms and 6 raw skins, but will always buy bullets and spent bullet shells.
Map is big and since there's no real fast travel system (except for things like ferry that will charge you money) it can take lots of time to backtrack.
There's few types of weapons and armor but you can use crafting to make many variants that suit your needs. They're also randomly available at the merchants. To supplement this there are many tools like grenades, bear traps, throwing nets, caltrops etc.
There is no big story behind your character, no being a chosen one, rather it just goes like this: you start as a fresh citizen of one of the underground stations and ask you to do some tasks around to help the community.
There's also expansion that focuses more about exploration, especially the underground sea, but I haven't touched it yet.
As I write now the game is on sale on steam and gog so if you're interested it's a good moment to grab it.

Just played the alpha build of Atom RPG. Really good game. I'm still getting used to playing. Reminds me a lot of The Sims actually.

>It does look like the Fallout 3 we never got and has a nice warsaw pact touch, not just russia
Yeah, I felt the same way after playing it. F3 feels really different from a standard Fallout game after playing Atom.

I dunno I don't really follow historical channels. I watch a video sometimes. I know about a couple like the fat Austrian larper Shadiversty or the other bri'ish Scholarlygladiatoria, awrite. And a few others I don't remember the names.
My problem with them (with Lindy too for that matter and most of the tube channels seems to walk in the same shoe) that they have this "now I tell you how it WAS, coz I am infallible" style. Even when they tell it in advance that we actually don't really know how it was, they still have this vibe. Every time I write here something I hope I don't sound like them, kek.

Watching Blackened Mantle
Not sure will complete it in one sitting. My sole problem for now that despite the codec says it's 30 fps, it feels lower and the movie is choppy.

Bernd 09/14/2019 (Sat) 10:47:19 [Preview] No.29107 del
So watched for 17 minutes.
Apparently I'm not interested in SW at all. Beside the choppiness it's also annoying that the scenes are (for now) just 1-2 seconds cuts pieced together and longer light-saber ballets. I'm not sure if the original is like that.
And what's the original's fault that it's liek watching a cartoon. Also the robots are silly. Especially those balls which disassemble the fighter in flight.
For now it was an unpleasant experience. I'll continue later.

Watched bout an hour and a half. I think I get it. It's mostly about the development of Anakin's character. It's little like a study of that.
However the movie continues to annoy me. The music and sound effects are going to my nerve now.

I tried drying them the usual way, hung up near my bedroom window which is kept open. I just wondered if there was some secret slavic trick, thanks though.

I've always heard it called slavic or purple stripe garlic, though I suppose it could be chinese, some sort of common mistake in english. I grew Caulk Wight - allium sativum ophioscorodon.

Anyway, I turned my beds today ready for the growing year. Have some pics.

Sounds good, not sure what can be the problem. Maybe air is damp?
Maybe they should be placed to a sunny spot (with breeze). I dunno.
Our garden is awful for garlic. I figure the soil is too compact, clayey. I thought about mixing those parts where the garlic would go with some lighter textured soil, maybe with what one can buy for flowers, and with a little sand. I'm not even sure if acidic or basic soil would be better, I read it matters for quite a few plants.

But we are all living in liberalism.
After WWII nationalism was banned and the world was divided into socialist and liberal parts. Then socialist went down to shitter and most of it was converted into liberal. With the exception of such countries as muzzies, China and North Korea, not much else left but liberal. And even China isn't a model example of that.

As I promised I'll write about this book.
It's quite lengthy but you'll reach the end if you read at your own pace. Most of the book isn't dense for me, an economic layman, with the exception of the parts about trade, which left me confused. I'll write what I manage to understand.
The author wrote it to argue in historiographical debates and make some points, but I read it just to add to my historical knowledge.

I'll write in sections, at most one a day so Bernd doesn't get overwhelmed, and will try to make the sections more thematic rather than just a sythesis of each chapter, as Hitler himself suggests in Mein Kampf for how one should mentally organize knowledge. I want to write about:

-Trade and controls of foreign currency and raw materials
-Budgets and revenue
-Businessmen and workers
-Consumer goods
-The fate of different industries
-General progression from 1933 to 1939

If I give up on writing I hope at least to cover the prewar period. I also hope to write on:
-Armaments priorities until 1940

>In 1940 the time factor was still against Hitler.
molotov-ribbentrop has been signed earlier. so he had to what he had to do after that. He could easily be buttbuddies with chamberlain before the pact. He could get economical boost with western support. Also the military investment was super high, as he planned to attack pretty much anyone who oppose him. With a good manouver on diplomacy, he wouldnt cripple his economy so much.

I was in summer school studying and passing exams. Now it's over I can post more.

>But without signing the Pact he couldn't have occupy Poland and reach a common border with the SU
He could bid his time to invade poland later and prepeare for SU invasion just after it. He didn't need to sign the pact for invading poland, the west guaranteed poland because hitler literally torn apart the munich agreement despite they tried their best to appease him. he left them no choice, the west was war weary they had no intention to make a war, just to crusade against communism mainly with german soldiers. They realized there can't be peace with this guy. If only germany had a sensible leader..

You are right. But also wrong.

For the following I relied on the these books:
Alistair Horne - To Lose a Battle: France 1940; 2008, Penguin
Philip Warner - The Battle for France: Six Weeks That Changed the World; 2010, Pen & Sword Military
Robert Allan Doughty - The Seeds of Disaster: The Develompent of French Army Doctrine, 1919-1939; 1985, Archon Books
For the Allied/French order of battle I consulted with Wikipee and an Osprey book from the Men-at_Arms Series (no. 315) by Ian Sumner, Francois Vaucillier and Mike Chappel; it's The French Army 1939-45, Vol. 1, The Army of 1939-40 & Vichy France.
All available at Library Genesis: http://gen.lib.rus.ec

The French doctrine was a methodical maneuver based, they never calculated with mobile warfare, they believed the main tool to achieve breakthrough is the infantry and expected the tanks to add firepower to them, but not mobility. When they created armored divisions the usage they imagined for them was similar to what tank battalions were for regiments and divisions, only for higher level units (corps and army).
Beside the three armored divisions they organized (by the spring of 1940) three light mechanized divisions and five cavalry divisions which included tanks in their ranks. These divisions were divided between the armies of the First Army Group which was designated to move into Belgium as soon as the German invasion started. The amored ones however were kept in reserves, the 1st might have been the reserve of the 1st Army, the other two were surely of the GQG's (French high command) and they were stationed south west of Sedan in the Champagne area.
The French army all in all had 'bout 3100-3500 tanks (most likely closer to 3100) more than half of which was dispersed through the whole northeastern battlefield, another 800 were were divided between the armies with the cavalry and mechanized divisions, and all in all those three armoured divisions were summed up around 600 tanks.
On May 15th a new armored division "joined" the others tho. That's liek 200 more tanks.

So how the French amored divisions were used?

There are many components of the French defeat ofc because it was more like that than German success, but the wrong usage of tanks is surely one of them. And I believe a major one.

They most likely benefit from Hong Kong yes. This would make them want to keep that city at a cost that would still allow them to rack up profit. However giving after giving full autonomy the next demand would be independence. It always is, look at Catalonia. What's up with Pigmond there btw? Is he in jail?
I think protesters look at democracies for support, they don't want to be a colony again or something, but in our day an age, that's very unlikely scenario.
