Game Warden Art / Texturing

Do most of y'all do your own textures, or use pre-made ones? Also, who here is good at texturing?

General Discussion / What music y'all listening to?
« on: February 11, 2005, 03:22:40 AM »
Just wondering what y'all like or are currently listening to. Tell what music you like, or recommend a few songs, or whatever. I'm listening to Carbon Leaf songs; you can get many free (legally) from their website. I'm also listening to Pink Floyd.

Oh. So in the middle of an all but global recession it's a good idea to decrease taxes to those who, you claim, pay the most taxes? And start wars costing billions of dollars a day? That's sound fiscal planning right there.


First of all, if youíre going to decrease taxes, it makes sense to do it for the people who are paying the most. That way, you don't end up with part of the population paying large taxes and part of the population paying virtually nothing (which is actually pretty close to how it is right now.) Anyway, tax cuts actually help the economy if they are done right. Tax cuts mean more money for the people. This means that the people spend more money on investments or products, both of which end up with the money being returned to the employees of those companies as income. The government taxes this extra money in the system, as it taxes everything. Therefore, the government taxes lower percents on more money. In effect, the government gets the same revenue, and the economy improves. This occurs if the tax cuts are done correctly. I'm not saying this is going to happen with Bush, but this is at least a lot of the theory behind tax cuts in general. Reagan successfully did this in the 80's. I'm also not defending Bush's war. I think that it was poor planning. Also what do you mean about the people I "claim" pay the most taxes? Those numbers about who pays aren't a wild estimate, thatís US tax law.

, if u were poor ,lets say about 15k a year, would u want a bigger tax cut or a smaller 1

You dont pay income tax if your income is less than 32,150 per year. I think i already said this.

if bush didnt invade iraq for the oil then what for

What do you actually mean, "invade for oil"? Are you referring to more oil for the US? Bush personally aquiring oil? Or are you just using a phrase you have heard? Anyway, neither of the first two are actually true. The second is ridiculous, and the first is not true. The price of oil has gone up since his war. That price is controlled by OPEC. Who rules Iraq makes no difference. Iraq is being set up to independently control its oil. This means that when we are done the US will be out of the loop.

I don't have a problem with people not liking Bush. I get mad when people critizice him for things that are not true, or when they don't actually know what they are talking about. Way too many people complain about Bush just because the don't like the way he pronounces stuff, and then they try and justify their complaints with random percieved "problems" (such as taxes) that they have heard other people talk about. Most people who complain have no idea what they are talking about.  I actually think that we could have a better president, but I do not think that Kerry was a better choice. My main real complaints about Bush are his opionions on legislating morals, such as abortion or gay marriage, and his education policies.

Before you post next time, actually try to understand what you are talking about. Anyway, I guess I'll take this post from the top down.

if my memory serves clinton reduced the nathions debt by a shitload

You cannot possibly give Clinton all of the credit for doing this. While he was in office, the House of Representatives was Republican, and they have just as large an effect on the debt as he does. Also, I admit that Clinton was a fiscally responsible president, but much of what he did was continue debt reduction that had been going since the end of World War 2 and had just been interrupted by Reagan.

Quote
yall cannot say the he was the only 1 to have an affair

Clinton didn't get in all of the trouble he was in for screwing his secretary; he got in trouble for perjury.

Quote
and bush is a dumbass u have to agree with me on this

Bush not only graduated from Yale in 1968, he then went on to get his MBA from Harvard in 1975. At Yale he was in the middle of his class, which is pretty good, considering it is Yale. Its not like he's competing with average college students.

Quote
we went to iraq because of oil

Oil prices have actually gone up since we invaded Iraq. Invading Iraq doesn't help the US get oil. I bet you don't even actually know what you mean when you say he invaded for oil, you have just heard people say that and repeated it. We are setting Iraq up as a country dependent on its own resources (its oil). This means that they will control the price (not the US). In the end, its OPEC that sets the price of oil anywhay, so who controls Iraq doesn't really matter.

also who gets the tax breaks, THE 1 PERCENT OF RICH PEOPLE WHO NEED THEM THE LEAST

Bush's tax cuts actually are helping the top 4% or 5% income group. There is a reason for this. The richest people get the largest tax cuts because the richest people are paying almost all of the taxes. You can't cut the taxes on someone who is not paying the IRS anything. As it stands right now, you have to be earning more than 32,150$ per year to even have to pay income taxes. That's why the "poor people", those earning less than 30,000$, aren't getting any tax breaks.

have u ever heard bush say "neuclear"

How you pronounce "nuclear" is no indication of leadership ability.

Quote
i cant stand to be governed by a retard

Bush's IQ is actually around 129, with the average being around 100, and retarded beings set at 75.

Also, work on your spelling and grammar, nobody takes you seriously if you type like that.

Does the stuff come textured? Can you make your own parts to mix in with the premade ones?

I like the ships. How much is premade and how much did you design? I might have to have a look at that modeler.

I used Moray and POV Ray to render that. I also use Bryce and Poser Artist. I dont like doing objects in Bryce so I usually end up building all my objects in moray. I am also just not very good at Poser (yet), but i plan on learning.

Game Warden Art / new none game related art

Well, I was bored last night, so I made this 3d model. It is fully inverse kinematicized (is that even a word?) so that I can quickly and easily animate it. The only thing i dont like are the the textures on it, but i plan to fix those. anyway, tell me what you think. here are some various views and positions. the ribs, fins, tail, spine, and jaw are all set up to be easily moved and animated. the one that is just a sillouette i made for a desktop background, and the other one that is different i was just playing with. some of the image qualities are lower because i made them jpegs to save download time. Tell me what you think!
