  1. Sexout Spunk

    That error's actually displayed by Pregnancy. But it probably does that due to Spunk itself not being ready yet, and so the variable that it uses to tell Preg it's ready hasn't been set yet. Normally, this should only be an issue for a fresh install, because the init cycle takes longer.
  2. I don't know about you, but I've always had a thing for those moments where a bunch of musicians who otherwise never play together, actually do, and some kind of magic ends up happening. It'll often happen in the context of a benefit or tribute show, and despite some of that not going entirely right sometimes, there are many times when the sheer weight of the moment and the odd combination of talent on the stage make for a performance that gives you goose bumps. A few examples 1. Tom Petty, Prince, Steve Winwood, Jeff Lynne etc. - While My Guitar Gently Weeps (George Harrison induction in HOF) Petty had insisted that Prince stretch out with the soloing, but during rehearsals Prince didn't bother doing any solos, so everyone was worried if it'd work or not. It did. Fun was had. Check the very end: that guitar never lands, and that's only right. 2. Patti Smith, Bruce Springsteen & U2 - Because The Night I just like how Bono builds that up: it's a Springsteen song, so let's have him on stage.... it's also a Patti Smith song so... <crowd goes nuts> Anywho, two of the most anthemic acts in the history of rock doing one of the most anthemic songs ever. And then there's Patti, as always happy to be there, smiling broadly, essentially being the rock groupie she always was, and stealing the show by doing just that. 3. The Band & the Staple Singers - The Weight (The Last Waltz) The Last Waltz codifies what we can expect from moments like these. It's the original and it's full of brilliant moments that just might make you well up a little if you're the sentimental sort. The mere sight of Robertson's weird guitar, the weariness in Helm's voice, the crazy organ playing in the background, Pops Staples sly and lazy voice gliding in there, Mavis hollerin' op top of it, Danko jerking around on stage like a marionet... everything's just perfect. Not sure what the song's even about - that's the trouble with Band songs - but it did strike a chord with soul singers especially, considering how both the Staples and Aretha did it at one point in their careers. So it's only right it's brought back home that one last time. Feel free to add some more, eh? :)
  3. OMG the Hypocrisy

    (I'll just preface this by saying I'm no copyright lawyer, and am not speaking for LL in this post, just as me.) If you donate to somebody for doing what they do, then they're not charging for something. This is why we can't have paywalling of mods. They do, however, accept contributions, and having a link to a patreon account can be seen as soliciting contributions, and if they're making mods, then it's hard to argue the contributions are not for continuing to make mods. Which, for some reason, people agree not to do by once accepting a eula that seems to change occasionally, of a creation kit that may or may not be used to make "a Game Mods" (which isn't English). Nevertheless, 'this' eula is to be respected for all Beth modding by all modders, except when it's in violation of "applicable law", whichever that's supposed to be. So, eh... I dunno. Let's not stress too much over something this ill-conceived. Both Nexus and LL have allowed voluntary donations if there's no paywalling for a while now, and there doesn't seem to be much of a problem being made of it by Beth. It's well known they have lawyers that need to earn their paycheck, so if it was that big of a deal what we allow here, we would've heard something. I'll also point out that apparently non-monetary contributions to a mod are also not ok, so for some reason people aren't allowed to donate assets to a mod project anymore either. ;) Glad I'm still modding FNV though, and never accept a penny for it. That keeps things simple.
  4. The Vegetable Orchestra (self-explanatory) Not so much without instruments but definitely worth checking into for weird, newly-invented instruments is the album Gravikords, Whirlies & Pyrophones compiled by Bart Hopkin.
  5. Your Favorite guitarist?

    Prince could get pretty damned Hendrixian if he wanted to. So... fav guitarists. Jimi. Prince. Neil Young (for the sound). Ofc, when you get down to the blues side of things, you can't go wrong with the 3 Kings, ever. I'll also drop the name Popa Chubby. He's a great all-rounder: guitarist, songwriter, producer, not a bad singer either.
  6. Let's keep politics out of this, please. The same goes for advocating piracy.
  7. Report broken download links

    That's a Mega link, whether it's still active or not has nothing to do with LL but is up to the uploader. What we're mostly doing in this thread is fix issues caused by the upgrade, such as the links from support topic OP to download page getting lost.

  11. Giving credit is not having permission. Making money off it without permission a horrible idea and entirely illegal. People go apeshit, nobody wins.
  12. Even there, it's not allowed.
  13. Free. We'll tell you more when we're done with the plan. In the meantime, keep saying what you'd like from a game, any game at all really. It's what the thread is for after all.
  14. We can't blame people for buying what looks good, or is the lesser of several evils. It only divides, and everything continues as is. Even when something like that's on sale, and you feel you're getting a good deal for your money, profit is still made, rewarding the overall strategy. What we need more of isn't just smarter consumers, but more and smarter creators giving the community a better choice.
  15. Stuff that was lost was due to having to revert to the backup, not the actual update. The reason this had to be done last time was that despite the updated site working fine in testing, the new software couldn't handle LL's usual high amount of traffic, leading to serious lag.
