Goddamn df modding tonight, could not for the life of me get this stupid frog with shearable, weaveable bones to work. I wanted a civ to wear clothes made from "woven bones," that doesn't work if it's just an inorganic, so I have to attach it to a creature, but they still won't show up unless like sheep wool or leather it has a source, like being a woven yarn. So I make the boney material and make it the frogs "hair," make it shearable and everything and sure enough that works. But then I can't spin the "bone wool" into "woven bone thread." And sure enough civ members don't wear the stuff and you can't make it. No matter what I tried I could not get the goddamn shorn frog bone hair to be spun into thread.
So I went back and instead gave the frog normal wool, like sheep wool, renamed it woven bone and only changed the material properties to make it tougher. Still can't fucking spin it. I gave up and deleted it, may try again tomorrow, may make "woven bone" out of it's leather instead. Maybe that'll work.
But I planned to accomplish so much towards fleshing out this civ, I had 5 hours to do it, and I wasted all of it trying to do what is apparently the impossible. There must be a material properties limit on the spinning job or something, like it can't be too tough or it rejects it as a candidate.

Errr... somewhat the same.

All I can see is a confused frog with bones for hair.

Agreed. Your failure is better than your success would have been, like when people accidentally invent things.

I love that the civ just looks at you like "you want us to grab a frog with bones for hair, shave it, then wear the hair-bones?" Even after your fix they just didn't want anything to do with your "weird" frog hair, and giving you side-eye while you try to make it less weird for them.

It's okay, it works perfect with leather, the leather/skin mats dont have trouble being modified to be tough like bone.

I'm glad its amusing at least.

In this case it's still skin/leather, I just made it really tough.

So I got 4 Gmail adresses, 1 for digital accounts, 1 for professional interraction in RL, 1 as use for a youtube account, and one recently founded that I might use to open a YT channel in the future.

I provided phone numbers to none of these... All my browsers allways delete their cookies, it has been like this for years, the log should be extremly consistant.

When I wanted to connect to YT I couldn't because of some bullshit "unknown device" pretense (no cookies = allways unknown device)... even after typing in the code from the backup adress they couldn't confirm my identity. The other addresses are all unaffected (and cascading backup adresses) YEAH NO SHIT YOU CANT CONFIRM MY IDENTITY IT'S THE POINT YOU MOTHERFUCKING DATA THIEVES I SHOULD SUE YOU


I HATE IT HATE IT HATE when I'm not trusted to secure my account myself this condescending shit is all data theft. YOU CANT CONFIRM AN IDENTITY BY ME PROVIDING A PHONE NUMBER YOU DIDN'T KNOW IN THE FIRST PLACE... Meanwhile on paypal, PAYPAL of all sites!!!!!!!! the maximum password length is like half of what I normally use when it matters

FUCK YOU FUCKING CONMEN YOU'RE NOT SELLING SECURITY NONE OF YOU ARE

Have a hug, mate. :( Is there a way to borrow a phone to receive a text? You could also email support to turn off two factor?

Yup I'll have to haggle it out with support but by phone it kinda defeats the purpose. It's as if they knew because I can't interract with YT without a google account, all the other functions could be handled with another service... Except that lol, I can still access an old account from a business that went bankrupt years ago... The irony is they tried to confirm this one too but I was free to simply skip, I swear this is so arbitrary I should migrate the email adresses that matter before they decide to cut me off - I never did eventhough I saw similar because so far I allways managed to get back in.


Well this other account shall do just fine to comment and vote. You ain't getting my phone number google, even the android isn't linked to an account and carries no sim card anyway. And you ain't linking my watching behaviour with my buying behaviour, not without somebody manually putting 1 and 1 together, no siree!

The internet suggests no one has drawn a picture of a swole Deckard Cain oiled up to the caption, "Stay awhile and glisten." It makes me mildly sad :(
