    Hope she's able to stop by some time, or even join us :)

    New freebie on Rendo...cute desk and chair.

    The freebie I mentioned above ended up being a lot more than a desk and chair...it's an entire room setup. The title and promo on the download page threw me off some...it's called Japanese Study Desk, Side Cabinet and Chair. A little tip, move stuff by the base in order for its parented objects to follow. Very nice little set...even has a full length mirror.

    The same person has created a Home Treadmill freebie.

    Forester is working on a cap rail fix for the boat, so we're in the middle of testing now. It's coming along nicely. It's dropping the hull plank textures now, so we'll get there eventually :) The pitfalls of multiple conversions to bring it up to date from the 12 year old software in which is was created. This is almost like the original boat excavation in 1986 from the northwestern side of Galilee.

    I'm testing animation frame rate with the boat. Since I'm having to compensate for culling frames to keep down file size, I'll have to decrease the amount of wave motion in order to have realistic boat movement. The animation above was 90 frames, but culled way down to about 23 if I remember correctly. I'm satisfied with the boat movement, so now I just have to work with the water speed.

    I know the above scene needs tweaking, but I'll have to wait until I can see clearly...my eyes are begging for rest.

    Have a good evening everyone :sleep:

    I'm back upright again for awhile. Already I can see some overlap of stuff in the above project I was working on...sure sign I was picking my way along, unable to see with any precision...haha. One thing I've got to do...I wasn't sure about the scaling...that is, where the height of a six foot man should be in relation to the mast size. I just read the article about the excavated boat...it was 27 feet long and 7.5 feet wide....so I'll have to take M4 and test him at the widest point....I started out with the men being smaller, but they seemed too small then. I need to get oriented with what's normal for a 27 foot boot. If it was a car, I'd know what I was doing...but a boat...not a bit of experience :)

    Yep...I had overestimated at 32% scaling for M4...but 20 or 21% would be more accurate for him, or any other character over 6 feet. I don't remember exactly, but I think M4 is supposed to be taller than 6 feet, and the boat width is 7.5 feet, and length is 27 feet.

    Okay, here's a reduction in scaling of M4 to 21%. I remember now why I chose 32%...it was the hand size is relation to the large size of the oar.

    IIRC Sky, both Dawn and Dusk are over 6 feet, though I'm not sure how much, so it may only be an inch or two.

    I just heard on the news that Grumpy Cat, who was really named Tardar Sauce, died on Tuesday of this week. She was seven years old.
    Now that's truly sad news. :(

    Announcement on CNN website.

    Hey Janet...check your email again...I've contacted Forester for an introduction. She stays quite busy, so sometimes there's a delay in response, about like us :) Contact info is in your email :)

    This first video may have been the first Grumpy Cat video posted back in September of 2012. Tardar Sauce was still young then, less than a year old.

    Good morning. Nice views of Grumpy there.

    Hey Terre :) Yeah, poor little Grumpy had "Leave me alone" written all over her face most of the time.
