2023.05.29 07:57 ProteanProxy Why are the new champion ability controls total ass?

This is probably major spoilers for anyone that hasn't done the Sage quests and received their abilities - so you've been warned if you haven't done them yet. This will also be a long post, so you've been warned about that oo.
No joke, how did the Zelda team/Nintendo work on this game for 5 years and not think about how annoying these abilities are to use the way they've been implemented here. Let's look at them all in order.
Wind - This ability is probably the most useful, since the prompt for it shows up when you're paragliding (a great time to actually use it) and it's actually a very useful tool for traversal. However when you're on the ground it's a total pain since 99% of the time I've activated it it happens by accident when Tulin gets too close to me and it sends the items I want to pick up flying into the distance. Major buzzkill. IMO the controls for this on the ground should have been similar for Revali's Gale (you press and hold X down, crouching and blasting the wind gust in front of you). This works in the air as well, since you would normally open the glider with X, and holding it down would summon the wind gust. Making it the A button the way they did it conflicts way too much with picking up items/interacting with things.
Fire - This ability is great for breaking rocks, if the cooldown wasn't super annoying, making you have to sit around during the down-time. Further Yunobo riding on every craft is a cool idea, but a total miss - he weighs down the craft and also aiming while flying is almost impossible in the vertical direction. On top of that his big ball self heavily obscures vision while flying. Once again, poor implementation. Pressing the attack button (Y) while on the craft should summon him onto the vehicle, with another Y press to shoot him out. He's good when you want him, you just don't want him all the time. As for the ground rollout attack, perhaps pressing Y when you have your bow aimed (ZR) would summon him in front of you in his rolling ball form, and make you shoot him out when you release the ZR trigger.
Water - This ability by far is the coolest. Automatic shield like Daruk's Protection, and a big AOE attack? Hell yeah! Except you need to talk to Sidon in the middle of the fight..when he's almost certainly elsewhere..and the effect only lasts for 10 seconds at which point you'll need to find him and talk to him again. IMO If you have him enabled and have your shield held down with ZL pressing A for the first time should activate him instead of parrying. After that pressing A would work as parrying normally would, the same way you could parry with Daruk's Protection active. And then attacking with the bubble around you with Y would work as it currently does. The 10 second cooldown for the effect is honestly perfectly fine if you can reliably activate it. They could even extend the cooldown a bit for that effect for balance since it's so strong already.
Lightning - Being able to summon a lightning strike is absolutely awesome, and a great addition. But once again, this is a poor implementation. How are you supposed to find Riju, talk to her, activate the ability, let the lightning AOE area expand to the necessary amount and then shoot the arrow you need in the middle of a fight while everything else is going on?? IMO the way this should have been done was by using the item fuse menu to your arrow. Normally on the far left side of the arrow-item fuse menu it says None/No item which is good when you want to fire a 'raw' arrow. I suggest that on the left side of the None it has a lightning symbol that you can switch to (not unlike fusing an item to your arrow normally) which starts the AOE lightning area expansion while you have that lightning symbol selected. The arrow then fires and works as it currently does now.
I know I probably sound super nitpicky but it grinds my gears so much the way they've done the Sage abilities compared to how well they were done in BOTW. I really love that the Sages fight alongside you in battle, but finding an opening mid-fight to find them, talk to them, activate their ability, and making sure you're actually talking to the right one when all 4 of them are around you and they're all the same blue colour is just way more trouble than it's worth, and I end up not using them anywhere near as much as I would like to. IMO there's no point having such great abilities when the barrier to entry of actually using them makes you not want to even touch them. Please tell me at least one other person on this sub can relate - it's driving me crazy lol

2023.05.29 07:56 Consistent_Laugh_675 Broadcast in suburbs

Hi! I’m new here! I have a question for those who live in suburbs in the US and streaming from there. What kind of internet do you use? I don't have wifi and I'm only here for 1 month. but when I use mobile hotspot on my laptop to stream, my viewers says that the broadcast freezes terribly. What would you recommend? I also tried to stream directly from my phone, but it's damn inconvenient when they DMs me, i have to type with my fingers on the screen and instead of your face people look at how you hit the screen lol

2023.05.29 07:56 NotClayMerritt Results from the subreddit Keep/Sell survey

12 days ago, I posted THIS Google Forms survey to this sub asking your collective opinions on who YOU would Keep/Sell (or Loan) for next season. I said I would post at season's end so here we are!
First off, thank you for your responses. This did much better than I thought it would. We got 984 responses in total. Without further ado, here's the final results ranked from the highest percentage each player received. I hope you find it as interesting as I did. We'll start with who you guys wanted to KEEP:



I asked at the end of the survey for people to give what their preferred starting XI under Poch with transfers would look like to start next season and while the more honest answers such as, "Good players", "No" and "Fuck off" made me laugh, but this is the most popular response from those who did seriously answer:
(4-2-3-1): Kepa; James, Fofana, Colwill, Chilwell; Enzo, Rice; Mudryk, Mount, Nkunku; Osimhen
There were other popular shouts for Ugarte, Maignan, Emi Martinez, Caicedo, Lavia, Ivan Toney, and Harry Kane.
Receiving other votes were: Onana, Slonina, Kone, Kolo Muani, Sadio Mane, Højlund, Lautaro, Mehdi Taremi and Vlahovic. I respect the one mad lad who said Tammy Abraham up top.
There were also popular shouts for Kante to start next to Enzo, Havertz to start as no.10, Sterling starting at LW or RW and either Havertz, Lukaku or Broja starting up top (Lukaku's name was mentioned WAY more than I was expecting). One person used a 3-4-3 and put Nkunku in a pivot with Enzo. Idk, I won't judge.
Anyway, these are the final results. Discuss amongst yourself. The season is over now. I need to go touch grass.

2023.05.29 07:54 GayGuru_ WIP: A Magic system around sanity and limits

Okay so this is for a story I'm working on and its not done but I think the magic system is pretty solid.
Magic is alive and a unnaturally occurring phenomenon. Its chaotic and limitless. Humans can manipulate the natural world using magic with just their mind. However, magic demands balance. For every spell cast, every change made by magic, there is a cost. Unfocused magic has disastrous costs. There is also a requirement to use magic: belief. Mages have to genuinely believe in their ability to manipulate the natural world but it can take a toll on the mage. To do magic without any focus will cost the mage their sanity. The can lose their grip on reality believing the reality they create in their head is the real one. To combat this, mages created New Magic. Here are the differences
Old Magic: Objectively the most versatile and powerful kind of magic. Fueled by a mages emotions and willpower, its easy to lose one's self. A true master of this kind of magic has to be delusional. To truly believe in their magic and give up their sanity. To think themselves more real than anything else. This type of magic is dangerous and unpredictable and its user's are chaotic and volatile. The only limit is the mage's perception on what they conceive is real. However this magic is unfocused and therefore less real than New Magic
New Magic: Mages solution to the uncontrollable nature and high cost of magic. To do this they create limits and restrictions for their spells. This actually makes them stronger by grounding them in reality reducing the strain on the mage's sanity. For instance, an Old Magic fireball might be both hot and concussive but it doesn't last longer than the mages concentration and sucks energy from the caster or surrounding living things. A New Magic fireball would have requirements to be cast. For starters it might only be hot the only force being created from the heat. It may have physical components like say a naturally occurring crystal soaked in a flammable liquid. And it may have a trigger word and only be able to move in one direction. By placing all these restrictions a mage grounds their spell closer to reality making the cost on their psyche lesser. But also it makes it harder to counter said spell. To do so, a mage would need to know all the components the caster used. And a mage may create any requirements and restrictions on their spell as they please. But as New Magic is more grounded to reality, a mage needs less belief to cast spells and their spells can last longer.
The whole theme of this system is supposed to be sacrifice and shortcuts. Old Magic is basically an analog for life's shortcuts i.e. substance abuse, brute force, manipulation, etc. Great rewards but the costs are heavy. New Magic is supposed to be handwork. By facing reality and actually working with your limits, you can alot of great things but it will be harder. The other theme is sacrifice. By giving up more you for what you care about you can do great things but at what point is it too much? How do you know when to stop, when you're losing yourself? How much are you willing to give to make the world you wanna see? Granted this isn't a perfect metaphor but in the story it'll do.
Anyways I'm open to criticism and just wanted to see what others would think and get it off my chest. Hope you find it interesting.

2023.05.29 07:52 StevKrav Pistol Brace eForm 1 - Responsible Person - Mailing Address vs. Home Address - Can't have two addresses like in paper Form 1

Although I filled out eForm 1s, the only instructions available were for the regular paper Form 1. On the paper Form 1 the directions say that when filling out the Responsible Person section you can use your mailing address (i.e. PO Box). When you submit your Form 1, you can (and need to) put down your home address where the weapon will reside.
When I did this on the eForm 1, the Responsible Person info automatically populated the address section with info from the Responsible Party section, and did not allow me to enter an address other than the one from the Responsible Party section (the eForm 1 is different from the paper Form 1 in this regard). This means that the eForm 1s that I filled out have my PO Box as their address.
I presume these are going to get bumped back to me to correct. My question is, should I withdraw the ones I submitted and submit them again a corrected address for the Responsible Person (even though I never get mail there), or should I wait and see if they are bumped back to me and correct them then? Since these are for the pistol brace amnesty deal, I am wondering which is the better move.

2023.05.29 07:51 calimocal Riding with a physical limitation

I posted earlier about my bike pulling to the left. I was thoroughly convinced that it was the bike and not me, because I’d never had this problem before. Mechanics couldn’t reproduce the problem, replaced the tires since there was minor cupping, tweaked swing arm position, handlebar position, everything I could think of and nothing resolved the issue.
I left one thing out of my earlier post though. Last year I was in a really bad car (not motorcycle) accident that resulted in some major injuries, including a partial crush of my right patella. With surgery and recovery, my right leg was immobilized for two months and wasn’t fully load bearing for another two. My right patella is still in 3 pieces and I have somewhat limited range of motion. Obviously, all that resulted in massive atrophy, and consequently, loss of confidence in my right leg and over reliance on my left leg.
I have no idea why it didn’t immediately occur to me that this would affect the way I ride a motorcycle. But when I ran out of things to blame, I really paid attention to the way I was pinning myself to the bike. And I’m basically just using my left leg entirely. Not only that, I’m digging my left toes into the the peg with a ton of force to compensate for the fact I’m essentially treating my right leg like dead weight, regardless of whether I’m turning right, turning left, riding straight, etc. And I’m also compensating by over-utilizing my right arm, so when I’m on the throttle I’m also pulling slightly on the right handlebar. Of course this all results in the bike perpetually tracking to the left.
The issue is, it’s not just a psychological problem. My right leg is still very atrophied, and nowhere near the strength of my left. So even though I’m aware of it now, I’m physically limited to relying on my left leg to pin me to the bike and keep the weight off the handlebars in all instances, regardless of turning direction. I’m pretty concerned about the safety of doing this. I haven’t had to make any emergency swerves since the accident, but my right turns especially have slowed to a crawl. My right leg just feels incapable of supporting me to any meaningful degree, and unless I’m laser focused on using my right, I habitually weight my left side entirely.
The injury isn’t resolved by any means. I’m still in physical therapy and it’s unclear whether I will make much meaningful progress beyond my current state. Coming to this realization, I’m kind of at a loss. I’ve relied on the bike as so much more than just transportation for so long that I don’t think I even have any other coping mechanisms for stress. In addition to just riding, I’ve learned to do maintenance, repair, and upgrades myself. I’ve spent all my expendable cash on tools and parts and modifications and courses and whatever else for years. I’m devastated at the thought of being unable to ride.
I guess the point of this meandering post is to ask whether anyone else has had a similar physical limitation like this and, if so, how did you overcome it? Are there any tips or things I could try to modify in my riding style to compensate for the disparity between my leg strengths? I can live with riding in a more reserved, slower, less aggressive style. But the thought of abandoning riding entirely before I’m even 40 is devastating. Any advice is welcomed.

2023.05.29 07:50 Elysium94 "Star Wars: The Living Force" Or, how to build a Star Wars Episode IX which ends the original Skywalkers' story on a satisfying note while respectfully passing the torch to their successors (Part 1)

Hello, there.
Continuing from where I left off on the previous post, here's the first main chapter of my revised Episode IX of Star Wars, the third and final part of the revised Legacy Trilogy I've pitched this past year.
As always, here is list of the previous posts in this ongoing rewrite as to help catch up:
Now, before we begin, I figured I'd make one last point.
With the recent finale to a certain Star Trek series, Picard, I thought I'd emphasize a through-line in this whole undertaking. One I neglected in the Prelude:
That being the importance of a legacy sequel actually feature not just a smooth transition from old guard to the new heroes, but active collaboration.
That's what we were looking for in the Sequels. So if you felt like you missed that, I more than recommend the third season of Picard, it really delivered on that front where the Star Wars Sequels failed, in my opinion.
Right, with that out of the way, now let's get a move on!
Voices of the Jedi
With plans made for the rendezvous with the Empire of the Hand, Rey and her fellow Jedi depart for Rhen Var on the Millennium Falcon.
Overseeing the mission via long-distance comms are Lando Calrissian, and now-seasoned Commander Poe Dameron.
Assisting on the Falcon are
  • Chewbacca, now captain in memory of his old friend Han.
  • Rose Tico, engineer and Chewbacca's new copilot.
  • The droid trio of C-3PO, R2-D2 and BB8.
The team review what they know of Rhen Var. It's cold, largely barren, with its most notable feature being an ancient ruined citadel seated on a mountaintop. The ruin dates back to the time of the Old Republic, before a cataclysm caused the once-lush world to freeze over.
  • Rhen Var, narratively, replaces Kijimi in this rewrite.
  • By use of a recognizable and significant planet from Legends, more history and weight is given to what would otherwise be just another setpiece.
In the ruins, the Empire of the Hand has uncovered a tomb containing the second Force-artifact coveted by the First Order. A circular stone dais depicting the Force realm Mortis.
  • Continuing the plot thread started in Episode VII, with three major MacGuffins being key to the lore/climax of this trilogy.
    • The Journal of the Whills
    • The dais
    • An ancient dagger
Finn consults the Journal, taking note of key moments in galactic history it vaguely predicted.
  • The dissolution of the Republic and rise of an Empire.
  • The Jedi and Sith both being brought to the brink of extinction, until the Sith's ultimate undoing and the Jedi's salvation.
Most telling of all is the original text foretelling the Chosen One of Jedi legend.
"A Chosen One shall come, born of no father, and through him will ultimate balance in the Force be restored."
As Rey meditates in the meantime, Finn notices a passage following up the prophecy. That when the Chosen One's legacy is tested, those who follow in his footsteps will be guarded by a warrior called the Sword of the Jedi.
Luke joins Rey in her meditation. For some time, they've been attempting to achieve a lesson taught by the Journal, something Jedi Masters and Padawans practiced in the days of the Old Republic. A state of Oneness with the Force, in which the voices of past Jedi lend their wisdom and strength in the face of the Dark Side.
  • Each of these lore bits are inspired by or lifted from Legends, as a means of fleshing out current Canon while also honoring what came before.
Ben notices Luke growing weary, and talks with him. The two have reconciled enough that they can be civil with each other, Ben even showing glimpses of the young and hopeful Jedi he once was.
Ben hints that he knows his uncle is dying, after his use of Force-projection on Crait. Two years on, he asks Luke how much time he has left. Luke is unsure, saying only that he'll do what he can for his students for as long as he can.
  • Extending the plot thread of Luke's days being numbered, this rewritten plot plays on ideas of age, the inevitability of time, and the heartache of knowing a dear friend or relative won't be around forever.
Alone, Rey's calm reminiscence continues until she reaches a block. The broken memories of her childhood on Jakku, and abandonment.
She almost recoils from it until a calm voice tells her to stay. The voice of a man whose presence reminds Rey of Luke, and Leia. The spirit tells Rey she cannot hide from her pain forever.
  • Fairly obvious who this is. Foreshadowing for later developments, of course.
Rhen Var
On the frigid planet Rhen Var, the Falcon crew land and come face to face with Grand Admiral Thrawn.
Speaking for the Empire of the Hand, Thrawn cordially greets Luke and makes note of his heritage, with Thrawn having fought alongside Anakin Skywalker long ago.
  • Referring to existing Canon novels in which Thrawn not only meets Anakin, but his later identity as Vader as well, deducing they are one and the same.
The legendary soldier and Jedi Master state their terms of an alliance between the Chiss's new empire and the Republic. That the territory controlled by the First Order be granted back to its people first, before any political advances be made by the Chiss. Any power they gain in the event of victory will be taken peacefully, or the Republic will put a stop to it.
  • As Thrawn is first and foremost a cold and calculating schemer, his influence in the Chiss civilization could be a threat if unchecked.
  • The Republic's more proactive stance marks a difference from its placid, inactive behavior in stories leading up to the new trilogy.
Thrawn agrees to the terms, confident his people can prosper without unnecessary war.
Locals take the Jedi to the excavation site. Journeying inside, they pass a mass of hieroglyphs, one of which bears an uncanny resemblance to the Alliance Starbird.
  • Another nugget from Legends.
Finn and Rey stay close to each other. Noticing the symbol, Finn makes small talk about the thousands of years of history which led to this. He and Rey talk about what was, and hopefully what can be once the war is over.
Finn's romantic feelings towards Rey have grown stronger, and though she is more reserved she feels much the same way. But the truth of her past, and the abandonment by her parents on Jakku, keeps her cautious and afraid to let herself take such a significant step.
In a moment alone, Ben encourages Finn not to give up.
  • The central love story in this rewrite of the Sequels is between Finn and Rey, following up the rather blatant setup in the first film which was, unfortunately scrapped.
  • As the new generation of Jedi is thematically aimed at overcoming the flaws of the old, romantic love is accepted.
The dais is recovered from a secluded tomb, depicting the Ones of Mortis.
  • The Daughter, embodiment of the Light Side.
  • The Son, incarnation of the Dark Side.
  • The Father, the neutral and detached patriarch keeping them in balance.
Pondering on legends of Mortis, Luke remarks that the understanding of balance in the Force has been long debated. Is it the absence of the Dark altogether? Simply keeping it in check? How can positive and negative, creation and destruction, exist in harmony when those who can harness the Force have the power to shape worlds?
  • Being a little meta with the idea of balance, and how different characters might perceive it.
But before the Jedi can secure the dais and take it back to Republic space, ships of the First Order arrive, headed by a Xyston-class Destroyer.
The ships launch a swift and brutal attack on Rhen Var, with the allied Chiss and Republic forces barely holding them off as a First Order attack was not expected for days.
The cause of the sudden assault is revealed when the Knights of Sith appear in force. Numbering in a small army by now, the dark force is headed by the Supreme Leader himself. Starkiller, coordinating his forces through a shared link in the Dark Side, directs his knights to seize the dais.
As Luke and Finn hold off several elite knights, Ben and Rey are hounded by visions of Starkiller. As the vengeful Sith menaces the pair, their minds are clouded and they find themselves experiencing visions of Exegol. Then, caught off guard, they are attacked by Starkiller himself.
Luke, sensing their distress, comes to their aid but is also shocked when his mind is briefly transported to the Sith stronghold on Exegol, where the specter of a furious Darth Sidious reaches out to him.
The shock is distraction enough for Starkiller to employ a surprise force technique none of the Jedi anticipate; the power to drain the living Force from other beings. Starkiller attacks all Jedi present with the ability.
  • In addition to losing one's life force, another side effect is frightening and nightmarish visions tied to one's traumas.
    • A psychological weapon which speeds up the process by breaking one's mind.
The group survive when Luke triggers a collapse of rubble, which in turn triggers an avalache.
The team retreat to the Falcon, which drives off any attacking First Order troops. But the dais is taken, with the First Order's Destroyer unleashing a devastating superlaser blast which scorches much of Rhen Var's surface.
As the Falcon flies away, their mission having failed, Thrawn coordinates a defensive strategy among his fleet while they assess the unexpected superweapon among the First Order's arsenal. Meanwhile, Rey and her fellow Jedi recover from the near-fatal use of the Dark Side while reeling from the horrifying extent of Starkiller's newfound power.
As well as its source.
The Countdown
Republic and Chiss fleets mobilize, with the news of the attack on Rhen Var spreading quick.
The tenuous alliance have picked up a signal across all known worlds. A countdown, which will end in only one week's time.
  • Inspiration taken from the Templin Institute on Youtube, and their revision of the First OrdeRepublic war.
As the Republic's leaders scramble for a solution, Luke confers with Grand Admiral Thrawn and interim-Chancellor Lando Calrissian on what he sensed. The presence of Darth Sidious, reaching from beyond the grave.
Even Thrawn, having served the corrupt Emperor long ago, is uncharacteristically nervous.
  • Even if Darth Sidious is dead, the very fact that the First Order is acting on plans laid by him is enough to worry any and all characters involved.
  • Thematically speaking, Darth Sidious remains the overarching antagonist of the Skywalker Saga even when a new villain has taken his place as the active one.
The Dark Path
Meanwhile, Rey's recovery from the Force-drain leaves her rattled as she has experienced the pull of the Dark Side once before, in the cave on Ahch-To. She confesses to Finn that she felt something else besides fear when Starkiller attacked.
She felt rage. Rage towards Starkiller for what he'd done to Ben and Luke's family. Rage for manipulating Ben into murdering his father, and trying to reopen her old, unresolved childhood wounds.
  • Instead of Rey's draw to the Dark Side simply being the result of a lazy retcon tying her to Palpatine, here it's just the natural result of trauma and hard life experiences. Trauma Rey has to come to terms with.
Remembering Ben's encouragement, Finn tells Rey that she doesn't have to guard herself when she's with him. He knows her, knows she's always made the right choice when it counts. So long as they can trust each other, the Dark Side won't claim her.
Return of the Sith
On the reconstructed Eclipse, once again flagship of the First Order, Starkiller holds a council with his elite.
Allegiant Admiral Pryde relays their plan to all in attendance. A wide-scale extermination of worlds loyal to the Republic, set to a countdown. In one week's time, the "Final Order" will be enacted and carve a path from the Outer Rim to the galactic core worlds. Coruscant is their final target, the seat of their enemies' authority and site of a long-buried secret sought by the Knights of Sith.
General Hux, loyal to the cause but skeptical of the Sith as always, demands the Supreme Leader tell them what lies beneath Coruscant's surface that demands their attention.
  • The "Hux as a spy" arc from the Sequels is discarded here. Hux's presence in the First Order is kept as that of the efficient but self-serving contrarian, a grounded figure in an increasingly fanatical regime.
Starkiller attempts to cow him into submission by citing the defeat at Starkiller Base, saying the rebirth of the Sith will correct any hesitance or weakness in the ranks of their new empire. Hux is defiant, firing back by mentioning Starkiller's own failure to destroy the Jedi on Crait.
Starkiller, he claims, owes his followers transparency.
Pryde attempts to silence his nephew, but tensions reach a head when Starkiller demonstrates his use of Force-drain again and brings Hux to the brink of death. The Supreme Leader makes it clear any who challenge him now will suffer the same fate, and the next time he won't stop.
  • As a spiritual successor to the famous scene in which Darth Vader chokes Admiral Motti, this sequence demonstrates a far more gruesome Dark Side power.
  • A point in which the scene runs counter to Vader, however, is that while Vader silenced an impetuous officer disrespecting him out of blind arrogance, Starkiller harms Hux for simply making a reasonable objection and hurting his pride.
After retreating to his quarters, Starkiller is contacted by Sidious, who commends his ruthlessness. Starkiller is then directed to go to the dais and perform a ritual tuning himself to the artifact.
Cutting his palm, Starkiller smears the side of the dais displaying the Son and opens himself to a state of Oneness.
  • An inverse of Rey's earlier attempt, being in the Dark instead of the Light.
Starkiller is granted a clear vision of Mortis. Now faded, grey, and devoid of any sense of life.
And beyond the veil is a series of passages that bridge space and time. This, Sidious instructs, is their goal. The object of their pursuit, beyond any armies or empires, which passage through Mortis will grant Starkiller.
The World Between Worlds
And that's it for this segment of The Living Force. Hope you like it, and as always let me know your thoughts below.
In the meantime, feel free to also look up my recently-completed postings on Naughty Dog's The Last of Us Part II.
And keep an eye out for this next weekend, in which I follow up recent Marvel fixes of mine by finally examining the MCU proper. Will be doing so phase by phase.

2023.05.29 07:50 AttemptUpper3142 Easily proving a Christian cannot lose their salvation

All I need is one text to show this.
Scripture cannot contradict itself, other texts must be interpreted in light of texts that are irrefutable.
The text I will be using is 1 John 3
The Audience
3 See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2 Beloved, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. 3 And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.
4 Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. 5 You know that he appeared in order to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. 6 No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him
10 By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.
And now back to the entire point this letter was directed towards children of God yet John says right here by this criteria we know who are Children of God. Notice you aren’t a Child of God just because John writes to you but you are one by these evidences
This confirms the other passages of scripture that Paul talks to congregations of “believers” but says if you do xyz then this will happen to you. That doesn’t mean those people lost their salvation it’s a description of who truly are and aren’t born of God.

2023.05.29 07:48 LifeSymbiont I have questions about the material override in the inspector

Hello, I am the creator of "AI Stories" on steam made with the godot engine, I am using godot as well for my next projects, and I am honestly a bit confused about the material override part of the inspector. I am using godot 4.
Is there a list of all materials that I created? Like in the file browser / FileSystem? How do I know which material is set on which object? How do I know if I already made a material set as unique? How do I know 2 objects share the same material ? How do I know if there are 2 Materials that have the same base texture?
I cannot find enough indicators or just direct information about this in the Godot editor. Maybe I have forgotten to click a button, maybe I don't have an option on.
In blender, as an example, I always know which object has which material as there is also a list of all materials I can just open. In Godot, I have not really found such a feature.
Can you please help me and answer my questions?

2023.05.29 07:47 Key_Lingonberry6544 15 Tips for Getting the Best Used Car Financing Deal

Shopping for a used car can be an exciting experience, but it also requires some strategy to get the best deal. Financing is an important part of the process, and if you don’t know what to look for in a loan you could end up paying more than necessary.

Here are 15 tips to help you get the best-used car financing deal:

1. Research Used Car Values –

Before you start looking at cars or even selecting a lender, research average prices on used cars so that you can determine what type of vehicle is within your budget. This will also help you identify dealers who may be charging too much for certain vehicles.

2. Know Your Credit Score –

Knowing your credit score is essential in getting a good finance deal. Lenders use this score to determine the interest rate and other loan terms you will be offered, so make sure it’s accurate.

3. Shop Around for Rates –

Different lenders can offer different rates, so shop around before committing to any deals. Compare rates from banks, credit unions, and online lenders to find the best option for your specific financial situation.

4. Look at Loan Lengths –

The length of your loan impacts the total cost of financing. Longer loans mean lower monthly payments but more interest paid over time; shorter loans have higher monthly payments but less interest overall. Consider what works best for your budget when selecting a loan term length.

5. Negotiate for Low Rates –

Once you have found a lender, try to negotiate for lower rates and fees. Some lenders may be willing to work with you, so don’t be afraid to ask.

6. Check the APR –

The annual percentage rate (APR) is the actual cost of the loan and should factor into your decision when selecting a lender. The lower the APR, the less interest you will pay over time.

7. Opt for Prepayment Penalties –

Look for loans that don’t include prepayment penalties; these are charges added if you decide to pay off your loan early. By avoiding this fee, you can save money in the long run.

8. Take a Test Drive –

Before committing to any loan, take the vehicle for a test drive to make sure it meets your needs and expectations. You don’t want to be stuck with an unreliable car or one that has too many problems for you to handle.

9. Have a Down Payment –

Making a down payment on your car can help reduce the overall cost of financing and lower your monthly payments. Even if you have bad credit, having some money upfront may convince lenders to work with you.

10. Think Long Term –

Don’t just look at the short-term costs when selecting a loan; consider how much interest you will pay overtime and what types of fees you may be charged.

11. Read the Loan Contract Carefully –

Before signing a loan agreement, make sure to read it carefully and understand all the terms and conditions. Don’t sign anything until you are certain that the deal is fair for both parties involved.

12. Get Pre-Approved –

Getting pre-approved for a loan can help save time and money when shopping for a car. This way, you know exactly how much you can spend on your purchase and what type of rates and terms you will be offered.

13. Avoid Buy Here Pay Here Dealerships –

These dealerships offer financing directly but tend to charge higher interest rates than other lenders, so it’s best to avoid them.

14. Consider a Co-Signer –

If you have bad credit, having a co-signer can improve your chances of getting approved for financing. Just make sure the co-signer is comfortable with taking on the responsibility if you are unable to pay back the loan.

15. Think Twice Before Extending Your Loan Term –

Extending your loan term may lower monthly payments, but it also increases total interest paid over time and could cause you to become “upside down” on your loan (owing more than the car is worth). Be cautious when extending terms to ensure that it makes financial sense for you in the long run.


Getting a car loan with bad credit can be challenging, but it’s not impossible. By following these tips, you can ensure that you get the best rate and terms available and avoid any costly pitfalls along the way.

2023.05.29 07:46 StreetTacosTalking Husband thinks I’m not having Christian love for my narcissistic MIL

My husband was no contact with his mom for 7 years for some really intense and complicated issues. He reconnected with her just shortly before he and I met and began dating. I was aware of what had transpired with her, but felt like I was pretty open to who she was now and not like I let the past cloud my judgment of her as I got to know her. I really didn’t have any issues with her when we were dating, engaged, or early marriage. But when we started having kids there became more and more problems.
Its been almost a decade now, and I have a laundry list of ways she has hurt me over the years. My opinion of her is formed by my own traumatic experience with her, not my husbands upbringing. Beyond that, there is just so much about her personality I dislike. She is passive aggressive, critical, overbearing, uses gifts/services to guilt trip people, she doesn’t listen and disregards boundaries, she lies, she’s racist, she frequently disparages people about their weight, plays favorites with the grandkids, never apologizes for how she’s hurt people. And she does not change.
Now mind you, she’s also a very high energy, cheerful, generous person who wants to be the life of the party everywhere she goes. When she’s talking to me in front of my husband, it is very positive, gushy compliments, etc.
I feel on guard whenever I’m around her. I get full blown anxiety attacks in preparation for her visits. I spend hours after her visits on the phone with my own mother trying to unpack the mind games and my mom always reminds me “this is who she is and how she will always be.” Every text I get from my MIL, my brain finds fault in “she’s guilt tripping with that line.” “She’s just acting without asking first again!”
My husband and I are at an impasse in our conversations about her. It’s been a few years since she’s done something big, horrible, and dramatic enough for us to cut contact, it’s just small consistent crap every interaction with her. Every conversation we have about her feels like I’m bringing up my concerns/negative thoughts about her, my husband agrees that they’re true about her but is also frustrated by me expressing them. He says I’m not showing her Christian love, that I only choose to see the bad in her, that she’s towing the line in our relationship and I barely reciprocate, that I’m harboring bitterness towards her, that he thinks it’s clear I hate her because I don’t ask him to pray with me for God to change my heart about her.
I feel like I’m doing what I have to to maintain a peaceful relationship with her. I’m not argumentative, i engage and interact in conversation, I make intentional efforts to be thoughtful and hospitable (I was the one who thought through and purchased her Mother’s Day gift, I try to have her favorite snacks when she visits and offer some flexibility in scheduling). But when it’s just me and my husband, I’m blunt. I will tell him directly that I don’t want to see her more than I absolutely have to. I will lament the latest thing she tried to manipulate me with.
I don’t know what to make of his comments. Being around her is like a constant “red alert! Danger!” Experience in my mind and body and I don’t know how to reconcile what it would look like to be full of my husbands idea of Christian love for her while also doing what I can to protect myself and my kids from her abuses.

2023.05.29 07:46 DiscordianKitty Bugs or features?

I've been running into some odd things in the game lately and I'm wondering if some of them are bugs or intentional.
1) Cooking pots stored on shelves don't save their contents between saved games - I wanted to collect one of each recipe but it doesn't seem possible - Even the cooking pot in my inventory doesn't always seem to save contents between saves, especially during multiplayer 2) Cooking pots on a fire with meals in them don't show for everyone in multiplayer - I made a stew, and it let me eat from it, but when my husband went to look at it it just said the pot had water in it. 3) Placing objects on shelves next to walls doesn't seem to work properly - Before, I could just add the items directly as long as one was already on the shelf. Now all that does is jiggle the logs on the wall behind the shelf. 4) Can't place lightbulbs, flasks, solar panels, or turtle shells on shelves. No storage container for stones apart from sled. - Lightbulbs and flasks at the very least should be able to go on shelves. - All the other items are big so I guess I can see why they can't go on shelves, but we could get some way to store them 5) Turtle shell traps are triggered by small animals - the other traps were fixed not to, so this one in particular really does seem like an oversight 6) In multiplayer, gliders don't respawn for the host but do for guests - Like, all this does is force my husband to pick up the glider, give it to me, save, leave, then re-enter so that he can pick up another glider. - the knight v respawns so why not the glider? Gliders have limited uses - you need a high enough spot to get one going and once you get to a location you still have to hike to get back. Seems limiting enough. 7) Can't equip Virginia with the revolver - like, why not? Let me replace the pistol with the revolver at least - come to that why can't we give Kelvin a chainsaw or a good axe? 8) No Knight V spawn location on the golf course - Not exactly a bug but what an oversight. The one place it would be pure pleasure to be able to ride around on the knight v and the closest one is through the forest miles away. 9) Flasks only have two sips, quenching thirst fully requires four - Even with the second sip finally working, this seems extremely restrictive. 10) No real way to keep multiple recipes - At the most you can have one in the pot and one in a flask. Of course, this also means you're not really using either to carry water. The cooking system feels like we could at least have more ways to keep different recipes for different occasions on us - a flask that has eggnog for winter emergencies for example. 11) Turtle egg spawns in one location, at one time, and infrequently - talking about eggnog, the recipe requires five turtle eggs and I can't store recipes on a shelf between saves. Eggnog is only useful in the cold, eggs can only be found in spring and even then I barely ever find more than 4. It just seems like a totally pointless recipe considering the restrictions in place.

2023.05.29 07:43 pepperminticedmocha My mom and I live in the same house but we don't talk

We stopped talking the day of her birthday, actually. We've always had a rocky relationship. I always felt like she preferred my older sister and she always labeled me as the "black sheep" of the family anyways. She used to say, or always says, I have a "cold heart" and supposedly, I only care about myself. Well, honestly, I decided to cut her off the day of her birthday. It might be something insignificant but I felt as though, this was really my last straw. The day of her birthday, I woke up and the only thing I could think of, is making her a facebook post. She loves it when people show her off and she tries to make it seem like she has a perfect life online. Well, I wrote her something meaningful and posted the best pictures of her on my timeline. A couple hours passed, and no like from her or anything. My older sister commented under my post "Happy Birthday, mom" and my mom replied ONLY to her comment, saying "Thank you my sweet daughter, I love you so much." ....... This is not the first time she's done this, where she ignores my posts and just comments back to the people she only cares about. I look back to go see the post after a couple hours and I see she replied back to a few people under my post but never wrote a comment at me directly or even liked the stupid post. I decided to delete the post and unfriend her on facebook. I felt embarrased and somehow disrespected. After that, she just started ignoring me around the house and can't even stand to be in the same room as me. Why is she hurt if she's the one who publicly ignores me and makes me feel like shit?? I usually go apologize or buy her starbucks whenever she's upset at me, but this time, I feel like I've had enough. I can't deal with the emotional manipulation anymore.

2023.05.29 07:43 10throwawayantsy Are my reactions proportionate? Am I weak lol(TW)?

Idk how I feel about anything anymore. I'm kind of numb and detached. I feel fine. I do dissociate a lot and prob drink too much. I had issues with cocaine, over-used psychedelics which kind of fried my brain, and had a horrible sex life. But honestly now I'd consider myself very successful financially/academically. Anyone that has ever harmed me is kind of a loser now. So i dont know. i dont know what to think or feel.
My cousin was my age and forcibly fingered me. I was 10. We did other shit and i guess i 'agreed' but I did not enjoy myself. My cousin regularly told me how secretive everything was and encouraged me to make videos. When I confronted my cousin about it later they said I was remembering everything completely wrong and that I was a fucking liar. This grossed me out to the point i had to consciously not think abt it
I was 14 and this guy made me put my hand in his pants when I was kissing him. He's kind of a loser now with a mullet and i dont really think about this much at all
I was 15 and moronic and an 18 yr old online wanted to take me on a 'date.' When i gets there he pushes me into a car and starts kissing me. I gave him head but then he wont let me leave and keeps making me continue when im trying to leave. He'd ask if im ok but would twist my arm when i tried to go. i told him i wanted to leave repeatedly. After i left he blocked me on social media and moved to another state. I reported this to the police and they said it was a "mildly serious" case. After this event I tried to k word myself, then got into a decent relationship I completely ruined, and developed a brief stint dependency on cocaine at 16.
FWB would randomly take the condom off in the dark without notice. Or he would put it in my ass when i was too high to really respond, but eventually took it out when i told him to. I thought he was such a nice guy because he picked me up after another guy behaved grossly to me (#8)
Dude I was hooking up with regularly called me stupid and the r word. He made me have sex without a condom and made me cuddle with him after (held me down against my will). He told me he [email protected] me and smiled. the next few days he was really paranoid i would go to the police. he got more sexually vanilla and i got mad at him about this and insulted his manhood.
Dude took off condom intentionally and finished in me without warning, then stalked me for a bit because we 'connected' so much.
I had a one nights stand and guy demands sex from 11pm-6am and sets timers. He asked so much and i eventually let him do whatever because i was so tired
i went to guy's house and he was much uglier in person. I told him previously about bad sexual experiences in a vague way. He's insistent about making out with her immediately and making me get on my knees to blow him. He returns the favor and it wasn't unenjoyable but he grossed me out in general. Guy becomes obsessed with me and also wouldnt leave me alone. i dont think about this a lot but i think its gross
I kept getting groped at a party and i was embarrassed so I went home with him and just had sex with him. At the time, this was a logical thing to do
10)I told a guy to stop during sex. He said he just needs "a bit more" but i punch him in the throat instead.
11) im rly high and dont know who i am. i have unprotected creampie sex with a guy while im at least partially passed out. but he did check in with me a lot. we begin dating. He gets obsessive and jealous. He would threaten to hit/rape me if she didn't have sex with him (in a calm voice). He'd also tell me how worthless i was when we cuddled together. But sometimes he'd also be caring and understanding if i didnt want sex. He got very mad at me (we both cheated on each other) and inflicted pain leading to me crying and getting a migraine, then left and cut off contact with me. Though ,he did try to reconnect many times. in the months after this I thought everything I said was so stupid and wrong I barely spoke
12) Guy puts in it when i kept telling him not to without a condom. i got chlamydia.
Other Maybe Concerns
13) at 15 i made out with college aged men
14) at 15 yr i kept getting felt up by grown men on acid at concerts repeatedly
15) at 17 2 hs boys surrounded me and begged me to kiss them and touch them. it was night so there was no one else on the beach

Effective Skincare vs. Ineffective Skincare, Getting it Wrong a Thousand Times is Useless

‼️Effective Skincare

The skin's renewal cycle is generally one month. After a period of skincare, one can clearly feel the improvement in the skin, witnessing it moving in a positive direction. This includes the skin no longer feeling dry, an overall brightening of the complexion, reduction of acne, gradual fading of blemishes, and more. Truly effective skincare is about providing better care that genuinely helps the skin.

‼️Ineffective Skincare

Despite engaging in various daily skincare routines and applying various products, some people continue to struggle with various skin issues while others seem to have a radiant glow that extends beyond the screen. Some individuals don't see the desired results, and in some cases, their problems may even worsen, spreading from localized areas to the entire face.

‼️Ineffective Skincare Behaviors

🍃Using skincare products that are not suitable for your skin type:
Using highly irritating products for sensitive skin, using anti-aging serums during breakout episodes, or applying nourishing creams all over the face resulting in excessive oiliness.

🍃Using conflicting skincare products:
Overusing a variety of skincare products, such as combining retinol with various acids, without considering whether the goal is skin whitening or preventing allergies.

🍃Taking two years to finish a single skincare product:
In theory, the toner should be sufficient to dampen the entire face, the serum is usually applied with 1-2 drops, moisturizer with an amount equivalent to a pea, and sunscreen with at least the size of a one-yuan coin.

🍃Using improper skincare techniques:
Not following the correct order or steps, haphazardly applying skincare products without considering proper techniques.

🍃Inconsistent skincare routines:
Treating skincare as a matter of personal mood and applying sunscreen based on weather conditions.

‼️Developing Effective Skincare Habits

✔️Get 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night, ensuring an adequate amount of sleep during the night.

✔️Avoid sleeping with makeup on and ensure effective makeup removal.

✔️If the skin is very dry, consider using intensive repairing face masks or eye masks, but avoid daily use.

✔️To reduce eye puffiness, apply cool cucumber slices, used chilled tea bags, or cool gel masks.

✔️Dark circles often result from oxygen deficiency, so massage the skin to improve oxygen supply.

✔️Smoking and alcohol consumption have significant effects on the skin, leading to premature aging, abnormal skin tone, and dryness.

✔️If you have combination skin, don't categorize it as a single type. Use different skincare products for different areas.

✔️Simplify your skincare routine, such as using a deeply cleansing face wash, applying a face mask once a day, and avoiding excessive layering of skincare products, as it can have counterproductive effects.

✔️Change your skincare mindset. Have a proper understanding of your own skin, reduce anxiety, stabilize the current condition, and then strive for improving skin quality.

2023.05.29 07:41 someethingrandom2 What Next.js 13 pattern do you use for fetches with dynamic query params?

I'm starting some projects with the new app router in the near future. For fetches with dynamic query params (something like a table with filters), I'm thinking to use swr, which would fetch to an endpoint that simply calls a function that queries the db. The same function would also be used directly in server components that don't need dynamic filtering. That way the logic is at least centralized.
I feel like this way of doing it defeats the benefit the new loading.js abstraction or React's suspense in favor of the old pattern (some variation of isLoading ? : ). It's actually almost more cluttered because I'm mixing both styles, as this is only necessary in some components. Is there a different, perhaps better pattern? I'm new to the app router, so do let me know if I'm being silly.

2023.05.29 07:40 UseApprehensive1102 New Card Reviews: Io!

New Card Reviews: Io!
You know what time it is. It's time for the new and improved card reviews. Today, we are going to review the Io from The Solar System! Here we go!
Energy: 3
Power: 70
Rarity: Rare (Basic)
Special Ability: IO.U 3 Energy (When drawn, a random card in your hand costs +3 Energy until played.)
Io is a heavy-hitter with a sabotaging ability. It gives out 3 Energy as a debt to a random card in your deck and keeps it until played. It has over 20 PPE, not bad for a card of this caliber. What makes it powerful, however, is the buffs it can receive. It can easily get buffs from The Molly Maguires, Pumpkin Toadlet, Boxing and Area 51, due to being a Rare card, costing 3 Energy, having 70 base Power, and being a Solar System card, respectively. Thus, it is quite easy to use and buff this card. It can hit really hard, and in high energy Leagues where the "Energy debt" does not matter, it can shine really well. Even if it inflicts the "Energy debt" on itself, it still has a good Power breakthrough, 6E/70P is easily 11.67 PPE. Not to mention that the RNG nature of this card means that this card can give the "Energy debt" to cards that won't have a problem being more expensive at all, like Great Smog Of London, Braneworld and Common Carp, all of which benefit from not being played.
However, due to its high base power, it is also easy to burn, so watch out for Shuuvia and Raphael. Even regular Power reduction like the ones from Lu Bu, Grand Archer Yi, and Chupacabra, can pose a threat to this card, not to mention that it is still vulnerable to Energy increase debuffs like Triathlon and Assassin Bug and from Lock like Europa and Loch Ness Monster. In general, the biggest threat to this card is its vulnerability to debuffs, not just ones that affect this card, but also ones that can attack your Energy supply directly, like Wizard Nebula, Genghis Khan and King Cobra.
Overall, I give this card an A-, due to its easy compatibility with support and good stats for cost, even with the debuff.

2023.05.29 07:40 Ecstasevie Drawing needle

Drawing needle
This might be dumb but … my insurance messed up and I’m one week short of the needle I use for drawing up my T. I do have a needle, but it isnt the same size much thinner. Do you think I can use this to draw the solution still? Or should I use a past needle since this is one I don’t inject directly into any skin? Or should I just literally miss a week and be safe? I dunno I’m sorta stressing about it I’ve never skipped🤦🏻‍♂️
