  1. Well I'm sure Norway is as full of stinky-mouthed empty promises just as much as Australia is, but I think you're bringing politics into the wrong thread. You're looking for one of Kurshok's gems. I posted the video for all that wholesome Chuck Norris goodness.
  2. Russia's economy is still in the toilet and I don't see it as a threat. And China, while a threat, is literally growing money on trees and trying to export its inflation to developing nations, which isn't really working anymore. I'm not sure who told them they can just incessantly print money and fudge their numbers, and think there won't be any consequences to that. Every day China's list of friends grows ever smaller and smaller, to nobody's surprise. The west is in the grip of what I consider largely a trend, when it comes to "woke culture". If anyone actually wants to look at the world clearly or maybe even do some travel, they might realise how USA is actually one of the LEAST racist countries. You can't say "China and Russia isn't racist because look, they all get along great with the dozen or so black people who are actually there", while comparing them to a country that just had a black president, for 2 terms! It's likely just a generational thing and people will grow out of it, and new batch of fledglings will arrive and see it for what it mostly is, a steaming pile of bullshit. I'm not 100% against most of the ideas but, typical of human beings, we want to push everything to the extreme and all the extremes are blown out of proportion by a vocal minority, and exploited by mass media. People who live in their grandma's basement and see the world through this outrage-culture lens are going to think everything is worse than it really is. I'm optimistic that common sense and rationality will eventually prevail, regarding these particular cultural fads, as the coming generation filters it all, taking what is useful and discarding the stinky fluff. Mainly because they will have even bigger actual problems and can't afford to distract themselves anymore. Ultimately, this all falls under the umbrella of divide and conquer tactics used by the large corporations to get people fighting each other over what colour of socks they wear, instead of trying to tackle the real issues that really will see us lining up for thimbles of roach milk. We're all distracted and acting like children, especially politicians, while facing very real problems that require intelligent adults to solve. Even something like Covid vaccines have become so highly politicised and business-centric, and the scientists doing the actual work behind the scenes are muzzled by NDAs and you'll never hear from them in the media, even if they weren't.
  3. To anyone attempting to ignore our beloved Kurshok - you're going to miss out on his fresh hot take on the OnlyFans canine-fellatio scandals!!!

    Oh shit.

    Best AntiVirus?

    To anyone honking the M$ horn and saying their built-in solution is marvelous, well, I would be willing to (privately) share a file with you that, as I've already mentioned twice, it does not detect with the current definitions. I keep seeing it ranked highly on top-5 AV webpages, but in my personal experience, it fails time and time again. (*not entirely sure how legal that is, so no, won't actually do it... would really like to, though!)

    Best AntiVirus?

    How naive. I just posted exactly why that is, and it has nothing to do with wares or porn. If you scan with Windows Defender and don't find anything = does NOT mean you have nothing to worry about. You can easily find nasty stuff on places like SourceForge and even Google Play. Nobody is safe. Ever.

    Best AntiVirus?

    I recently tried ClamWin and found it extremely thorough for scanning:- https://sourceforge.net/projects/clamwin/ It detected stinky files that other solutions failed to. I actually have a whole HDD and OS dedicated to many different (premium) antivirus solutions and scan my other HDDs as external, but usually just Windows system files. I may stop that nonsense and just stick with ClamWin because it's free AND it's truly portable. I was able to extract everything from the initial EXE, update the definitions and begin scanning. I can just copy it to my different systems easily without installing anything. It's very slow, but, I interpret that as also being very thorough. I'm also in the habit of throwing files I'm unsure about up to MetaDefender:- https://metadefender.opswat.com/ As for actually cleaning out, almost any bootable solution should do. Hiren's via Yumi is something I can recommend:- https://www.hirensbootcd.org/ https://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/
  8. https://pixabay.com/users/paulwell-2033532/ I was going to do up full materials of these, and I still might and post back here, but I thought I'd post this here anyway. I'm personally looking for stuff that isn't overtly christian but that's near impossible. I'd likely do funky edits to avoid it as much as possible.
  9. I would say it should apply to everything except for copying and pasting to and from a surface, where the texel-scale is a feature of what it's copying and pasting. Maybe there's something else I'm missing, but that's my personal opinion.
  10. Looking through the previous releases and their changelogs, it seems this was a mistake/bug and around the same time as the "texture tool" was implemented, a long time ago. So yeah, was never intentional. I'd like to (not overcomplicate this any further and) propose a very simple hackity fix - to have an option to "automatically naturalise" new textures that are applied to surfaces, as though DR is hitting CTRL+N each time for me, behind the scenes. I don't mind if it takes a tiny chug and half a second longer to do, I would already be very happy with this workaround. I wouldn't want to both A> have this eat up any more time and B> possibly break the texture tool feature by insisting on a hearty thorough solution.
  11. For those who talk about "being consistent with other 3D software out there", you have completely missed the point. There's a reason why people don't make maps with Blender or Maya or Max, and why these software end up having plugins to make environments that always orientate around how textures are applied to surfaces. Also, why DarkRadiant is the only Radiant that has decided to go down this path, even if to compare with Hammer/WorldCraft or QuArK. Like I said on the Bugtracker - "The fact that textures are different resolutions 99.9% of the time means because they are physically bigger, cover larger brushes and take more screen real-estate." (and) "...since the dawn of 3D games, has always had a consistency." If the "Default Texture Scale" setting in 'Preferences' isn't supposed to mean anything, then why would it even be there anymore? Why was it ever there in the first place?
