Winter Town Hall (January 2016)

The first town hall of the year was held in the front room of city hall #5. Because.

Thaw will progress through the city in Febuary, then Tenk will make the annual prim count to update the estate spreadsheet. Do not build on the streets during prim count. Oiling Festival will run March 1-31.

Tentative Oiling Festival categories will be:

City Hall 1/10 scale model proposals (infrastructure replacement)

Clockhaven Lighthouse (infrastructure replacement)

Duckpond Paddleboats (silly vehicles)

Rampart Defenses (infrastructure replacement)

Smokestakes and Chimneys (for marketplace, we need them)

Paper Money (2D)

Robot Sentinels

Pharmacueticals, Remedies, and other things you would get from the Apothecary Counter (small build)

Honkin’ Big Machines

Sheet Music (2D)

Patron Saints (storytelling) & their Icons (2D, optional)

Musical Instruments (small build)

Cemetary Memorials (for marketplace, there’s never enough)

Posters, Handbills, and Grafitti (2D, because we can never have enough)

Full Oiling Festival details will be posted after prim count in late February.

Spread the love

    [13:10] Bookworm Hienrichs grumbles at the printing error on her copy of the notes that left off the location.
    [13:10] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx) sighs.
    [13:10] Alyssa Hawthorn (alyssahawthorn) checks to see if the floor boards are safe..
    [13:10] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): We need a more complete city hall.

    [13:11] Emerson Lighthouse: still smells like smoke in here
    [13:11] Stargirl Macbain chuckles
    [13:11] Myrtil Igaly: it’s all gonna crumble onto us
    [13:11] Alyssa Hawthorn (alyssahawthorn): EEK~
    [13:11] Mosseveno Tenk: I have to have at least 1 town hall in this buidling to make it count.
    [13:11] Mosseveno Tenk: this is the one.
    [13:11] Alyssa Hawthorn (alyssahawthorn): /em snaps a photo once everything is rezed
    [13:11] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Yuck
    [13:11] Stargirl Macbain: Are we getting a new city hall?
    [13:11] Mosseveno Tenk: Right. are we all here?
    [13:11] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx) gets bumped into.
    [13:11] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): We still haven’t got the old new on
    [13:11] Gabrielle Riel: Hey ladies
    [13:11] Emerson Lighthouse whispers to the Count – I think we buggered up the building
    [13:11] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): *one
    [13:11] Count Bologna (rexbologna): Did something, er, happen to this one?

    [13:12] Mosseveno Tenk: As always the transcript of this session will be posted on the forums
    [13:12] Mosseveno Tenk: so if you don’t like that, don’t talk.
    [13:12] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Labour problems’
    [13:12] Jimmy Branagh: Damn unions …
    [13:12] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): ;)
    [13:12] Mosseveno Tenk checks his que cards
    [13:12] Mosseveno Tenk: 2015 was a very rough year
    [13:12] Tepic Harlequin: it was?

    [13:13] Mosseveno Tenk: there were several sims in the red, but as long as the estate was breaking even, i just gritted my teeth and didn’t say anyting
    [13:13] Mosseveno Tenk: historically, this is the time of year that people abandon land, in a big way
    [13:13] Tepic Harlequin: having too much fun with mine…….
    [13:13] Mosseveno Tenk: but weirdly, new folks are moving in. i got no idea why, but i’m not complaining.
    [13:13] Stargirl Macbain: YAY!
    [13:13] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Refugees
    [13:13] Emerson Lighthouse applauds the new folks
    [13:14] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx) nods.

    [13:14] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): We’re being awesome and attracting new stuff?
    [13:14] Steadman Kondor: nods to miss dee
    [13:14] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): I suppose it’s not all bad being here for at least a year now.
    [13:14] Mosseveno Tenk: all the sims are in the black except quarry hill, which i admit i have not paid as much attention to as i should have. i did widen the plaza and will be redrawing the lots there, and hopefully it won’t feel as crowded. i might need to do some terraforming too
    [13:14] Jimmy Branagh applauds

    [13:15] Mosseveno Tenk: i don’t know if it was sansar anxiety or what, but we held on. and we did something right.
    [13:15] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx) smiles.
    [13:15] Mosseveno Tenk: as far as sansar goes, i think current rumor control says beta in june. i will be asking for a beta ride ticket
    [13:15] Mοmοe Anansi (momoe.mollari): Babbage is awesome enough to attract all the people.

    [13:16] Mosseveno Tenk: but in the time line of things, it would be foolish to jump early before any new grid has a good shakedown
    [13:16] Mosseveno Tenk: so that means we’re not going anywhere this year.
    [13:16] Gabrielle Riel agrees
    [13:16] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): yup
    [13:16] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Oh, good.
    [13:16] Mosseveno Tenk: 6 months is not enough time to make a decision like that.
    [13:16] Mosseveno Tenk: everyone happy?

    [13:17] Steadman Kondor smiles and nods
    [13:17] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): Yes

    [13:19] Alyssa Hawthorn (alyssahawthorn) snaps a photo of Lady Moldylocks
    [13:19] Mosseveno Tenk: since i put a call out that i was buying stories, i’m getting around 5 a day in the inbox
    [13:19] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute) niods
    [13:19] Myrtil Igaly: Wow, that’s a lot

    [13:20] Emerson Lighthouse: fantastic
    [13:20] Mosseveno Tenk: last year Ben Bova told me that he became a better writer was because he read so many bad stories in the Analog slush pile
    [13:20] Stargirl Macbain: You’re going to need slush readers
    [13:20] Stargirl Macbain: at least three
    [13:20] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Slush readers?
    [13:20] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx) tries not to laugh.
    [13:20] Mosseveno Tenk: sooo….. i am recruiting for slush readers. it is done entirly in the google docs, so you need an account

    [13:21] Mosseveno Tenk: slush is the submission intake
    [13:21] Steadman Kondor: (sift through submitted manuscripts for first pass = slush reader)
    [13:21] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Oh.

    [13:22] Mosseveno Tenk: floor is open, then we’ll move to oiling festival

    [13:23] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Hm…
    [13:23] Myrtil Igaly: What should a slush reader do apart from reading the stories? Say if they liked them or not?
    [13:23] Stargirl Macbain: I think we should form a formal writing society that meets once or twice a month in new babbage
    [13:23] Emerson Lighthouse agrees with Star
    [13:23] Jimmy Branagh: Yes
    [13:23] Tepic Harlequin: i need a name for my slums at the Urchin Smuggling Centre, could be a competition at the Oiling Festival?

    [13:24] Stargirl Macbain: Yessir *snaps salute*
    [13:24] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): New Babbage Free Press could use want ads, personals, and letters to the editor. Send them to Newbabbagefreepress in world, or out of world.

    [13:25] Mosseveno Tenk: groovy
    [13:25] Steadman Kondor: usually the slush reader vets out the no-good stories and a next round of readers then sift through the remainder
    [13:25] Mosseveno Tenk: ooh yeah. i do like reading the free press.
    [13:25] Myrtil Igaly: I see
    [13:25] Myrtil Igaly: Is the Free Press available in world?
    [13:25] Emerson Lighthouse: best paper for crosswords,
    [13:25] Steadman Kondor: slush reader is the gate keeper…
    [13:25] Myrtil Igaly: by clicking newspapers stands or something

    [13:26] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): It soon will be.
    [13:26] Myrtil Igaly: Yay!
    [13:26] Steadman Kondor: my bookshop in clockhaven has a clickable copy of the fre press
    [13:26] Mosseveno Tenk: i think i need to stick with native english speakers *sheepish head tilt*
    [13:26] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): It should be. There’s a news stand near Aether salon, I know.
    [13:26] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): Thanks to Mr Kondor.
    [13:26] Steadman Kondor: other newspapers invited to please contact me…
    [13:26] Tepic Harlequin: New Babbage Free Press…… quite soft paper, very useful!
    [13:26] Mosseveno Tenk snickers
    [13:26] Steadman Kondor: i will send out a n/c call
    [13:26] Stargirl Macbain pats Tepic on the head.
    [13:26] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): ;)
    [13:26] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Tepic, you’re supposed to read the newspapers!
    [13:26] Stargirl Macbain: I like the idea for the naming contest.

    [13:27] Tepic Harlequin: well, yer need somethin ter read while yer contemplatin… then to sort out after yer finished…

    [13:28] Lia Venuto (venra.aries) waves
    [13:28] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): I have an idea for the oiling festival. Why not have town hall built in sections as a contest? One contest for the facade, one for underby’s office, etc… And then when the winners are chosen we could have someone tie it all together into a new town hall?
    [13:28] Mosseveno Tenk writes that down
    [13:28] Mosseveno Tenk: uh, the only build that ever survived that was the gangplank.
    [13:28] Mosseveno Tenk: its just not possible with mesh.
    [13:28] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Erm….
    [13:28] Myrtil Igaly: I’m not sure about that Doctor, builders like to envision the whole thing
    [13:28] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute) sighs relief
    [13:28] Mosseveno Tenk: so moving onto oiling festival

    [13:29] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Well, I figured at least it would get DONE.
    [13:29] Mosseveno Tenk: the gangplank had like 4 or 5 people buidling it at once when it moved from palisade to clockhaven
    [13:29] Mosseveno Tenk: no, it will get arguments and drama. trust me on this
    [13:29] Jimmy Branagh: Yes.  I like to do the whole.  I don;t play well with others
    [13:29] Emerson Lighthouse never raised a hammer
    [13:29] Jimmy Branagh chuckles
    [13:29] Stargirl Macbain: That happened twice with the gangplank.
    [13:29] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Nevermind then.
    [13:29] Mosseveno Tenk: we’re perfectionists. we don’t play well with each other
    [13:29] Lia Venuto (venra.aries): i just get vic to do all my builds =D

    [13:30] Lady Moldylocks (moldylocks): Nice thought, though, Jekyll.
    [13:30] Stargirl Macbain: And it takes very special people to make it work.
    [13:30] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): :p
    [13:30] Tepic Harlequin: i do, yer just gotta get it right, that’s all…..
    [13:30] Mosseveno Tenk: swhew, thought i got logged out
    [13:30] Stargirl Macbain nods
    [13:30] Mosseveno Tenk: so on to oiling festival?
    [13:30] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): Can we sponsor silly categories again?
    [13:30] Mosseveno Tenk: absolutely
    [13:30] Stargirl Macbain: I do like the idea of a chance to design Underby’s office, though….
    [13:30] Lady Moldylocks (moldylocks): What IS the oiling festival?
    [13:30] Alyssa Hawthorn (alyssahawthorn): Yes, the oiling festival.
    [13:30] Mosseveno Tenk: the city will get thawed during the course of febuary

  3. Mr Tenk Mr Tenk January 24, 2016

    [13:31] Tepic Harlequin: the Oiling Festival is amazing :-)
    [13:31] Mosseveno Tenk: then i do my annual prim count. during prim count, DO NOT BUILD IN THE STREETS
    [13:31] Stargirl Macbain: All that romance on you-know-what-date
    [13:31] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): It’s a yearly competition to create new things for the city.
    [13:31] Lady Moldylocks (moldylocks): Thanks
    [13:31] Mosseveno Tenk: i will be rather brutal about returns. then i adjust the spreadsheet so i can figure out where the prims are
    [13:31] Mosseveno Tenk: then we have oiling festival!

    [13:32] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): YAY!
    [13:32] Mosseveno Tenk: land is tighter than usual this year, but i did do some trading to get a big lot open in the port
    [13:32] Lia Venuto (venra.aries): =D
    [13:32] Mosseveno Tenk: the star build will be city hall. AND
    [13:32] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): And?
    [13:32] Garnet Psaltery: Was that a tax break?
    [13:32] Mosseveno Tenk: the base will be color coded, red if you are NOT serious about buidling it

    [13:33] Jimmy Branagh: Pregnant pause …
    [13:33] Mosseveno Tenk: and blue if you REALLY DO WANT TO BUILD IT IN A TIMELY MANNER
    [13:33] Tepic Harlequin: heheheh
    [13:33] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): YAY!
    [13:33] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): Heh
    [13:33] Jimmy Branagh: hehe
    [13:33] Mosseveno Tenk: thing was mr blake didn’t really expect to be picked to build this one.
    [13:33] Mosseveno Tenk grins
    [13:33] Jimmy Branagh: Contract!  Contract!  With penalties for missed deadlines!
    [13:33] Mosseveno Tenk: so there’s my safeguard this time
    [13:33] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): Please make my office fireproof.
    [13:33] Elizabeth Jarvinen (polysail): There seems to be a fire on the 3rd floor~~
    [13:33] Elizabeth Jarvinen (polysail): speaking of fire….
    [13:33] Steadman Kondor: did he transfer this one to you? can a team temporarily fix it up
    [13:33] Emerson Lighthouse pulls at his collar
    [13:33] Stargirl Macbain suggests Mr. Underby’s office be made out of straw

    [13:34] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): Easily done with asbestos and hydration in the walls
    [13:34] Mosseveno Tenk: i also want the interior done in gold and brass tones like the previous build. that’s where i usually get in a fight about city hall…. the texture  palette. so i’ll say more about it up front this time.
    [13:34] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute) refuses to even look at the Mayor
    [13:34] Mosseveno Tenk: this one is going down.
    [13:34] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): Sprinkler systems have been in facdtories for nearly 70 years
    [13:34] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): 1820’s*
    [13:34] Mosseveno Tenk: city halls in new babbage have an average lifespan of 2 years
    [13:34] Mosseveno Tenk: if you didn’t know.
    [13:34] Mosseveno Tenk: the one before this one lasted the longest

    [13:36] Mosseveno Tenk: mr blake has gone on to become the mayor of philomenia, and i know what that does to one’s buidling time, especially if the estate is not your own. i do not have any hard feelings about it, but it is time for this one to come down.
    [13:36] Mosseveno Tenk: next big build… the clockhaven lighthouse
    [13:36] Stargirl Macbain: OHH!
    [13:36] Stargirl Macbain: YESSSSS
    [13:36] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute) grins

    [13:36] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta): Nice
    [13:36] Myrtil Igaly: Lighthouses are cool
    [13:36] Mosseveno Tenk: that will probably happen in the wetdock in port babbage

    [13:37] Mosseveno Tenk: for vehicles… it was suggestted for a paddle boat
    [13:37] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): A paddle boat? Whatever for?
    [13:37] Mosseveno Tenk: i don’t mean a river boat, i mean those silly things you see at the park that are pedal powered.
    [13:37] Mosseveno Tenk: so we can paddle around the lake
    [13:37] Count Bologna (rexbologna): Charming.
    [13:37] Steadman Kondor: for speculation lake
    [13:37] Alyssa Hawthorn (alyssahawthorn): I do enjoy a paddle boat!

    [13:38] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Oh… Well, that will be lovely.
    [13:38] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): With weapons and little hearts on them?
    [13:38] Bookworm Hienrichs: Oh, nice!
    [13:38] Lady Moldylocks (moldylocks): Picnics!
    [13:38] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Weapons, anyway
    [13:38] Jimmy Branagh: They don;t stand a chance against a Wiggyfish.
    [13:38] Mosseveno Tenk: vehicles are one of the harder categories. we usuauly don’t see a lot of entries. maybe soeone could provide a script to help the process out
    [13:38] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Hence the weapons?
    [13:38] Mosseveno Tenk: i hid the slog at the bottom of the lake….
    [13:38] Mosseveno Tenk: weapons
    [13:38] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute) nods to Jekyll
    [13:38] Steadman Kondor: i’ll post a freebie script if i find one
    [13:38] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): Nathaniel Lorefield has a few, I can ask him to provideone…
    [13:38] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): He means slug.

    [13:39] Mosseveno Tenk: the tesla guns on the rampart walls are 12 prims sculpts. i haven’t tried to get a true accounting by linking one to mesh yet, but it bet it isn’t pretty.
    [13:39] Mosseveno Tenk: i want new rampart defenses.
    [13:39] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute) grins
    [13:39] Steadman Kondor: hurray!
    [13:39] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Juicy
    [13:39] Lia Venuto (venra.aries): GUNS!!!!!!!  \o/

    [13:39] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta): Deathrays!

    [13:39] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington) takes the coffee away from Lia
    [13:39] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): Enough about quatloos. I would like to see what a mark looks like.
    [13:39] Myrtil Igaly jinxes Tepic

    [13:40] Mosseveno Tenk: father pizzaro wants to know about our patron saints.
    [13:40] Steadman Kondor signs the cross..
    [13:40] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Oh my

    [13:40] Mosseveno Tenk: never the cross
    [13:40] Jimmy Branagh: Patron Saint of Distillers
    [13:40] Alyssa Hawthorn (alyssahawthorn): So we get to come up with Patron Saints for the builder church?
    [13:40] Steadman Kondor signs the hammer…
    [13:40] Myrtil Igaly: he’s very respected
    [13:40] Mosseveno Tenk: so a story, and an icon if you are artistically inclined.
    [13:40] Mosseveno Tenk: to go with it
    [13:40] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): We ‘remember’ them after having forgotten them awhile.

    [13:41] Alyssa Hawthorn (alyssahawthorn): Oh! One I can enter.
    [13:41] Mosseveno Tenk: for the new folks… how this town works, is
    [13:41] Mosseveno Tenk: the more we build, the more we remember
    [13:41] Tepic Harlequin: St Bewildered……. Patron Saint of urchins and missing pocket watches…..
    [13:41] Jimmy Branagh: hehe
    [13:41] Alyssa Hawthorn (alyssahawthorn) giggles at Tepic
    [13:41] Mosseveno Tenk: so after every oiling festival, we tend to learn all kinds of things about our history!
    [13:41] Mosseveno Tenk: lets see….

    [13:42] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx) raises his hand. “Mayor, if I may suggest something”
    [13:42] Scottie Melnik: Who doesn’t keep their pocketwatches close to their… *searches his pocket* Dammit…
    [13:42] Mosseveno Tenk: smokestakes… there’s a real lack of good mesh stacks and chims. let’s fix that and get them on marketplace.
    [13:42] Mosseveno Tenk: please.
    [13:42] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): and make them BIG
    [13:42] Mosseveno Tenk: we need those
    [13:42] Vic Mornington (victor1st.mornington): like my pump house station big

    [13:42] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): I would like to know what a “Cloud angel” exacly looked like? I keep hearing rumors about them.
    [13:42] Mosseveno Tenk: yes, go larger than life on the height to improve the skyline
    [13:42] Mosseveno Tenk: you don’t want to know. it’s creepy
    [13:43] Mosseveno Tenk: i’ve seen pictures

    [13:43] Maku Ibn-Selat (fecal.varnish) scribbles on the back of an envelope. “St ____, Our Lady of Lubricants, a well oiled town is a flourishing one”
    [13:43] Lady Sumoku: They can’t be like your pump house or you it won’t be the biggest.
    [13:43] Mosseveno Tenk: that’s the spirit!
    [13:43] Jedburgh Dagger (jedburgh30.dagger): there is a book in the library Doc
    [13:43] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Oh, there are pictures..
    [13:43] Myrtil Igaly: There are drawings of those around
    [13:43] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): My mistake.
    [13:43] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Carry on.
    [13:43] Stargirl Macbain: Uhm….did we ever get the row-houses re-built?

    [13:43] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): In case it got lost in the shuffle of chat, I would like to see what a “Babbage Mark” looks like.
    [13:43] Mosseveno Tenk: right, we need a 2D category
    [13:43] Mosseveno Tenk: what do you want?
    [13:43] Mosseveno Tenk: ah yes, marks and quatloos
    [13:43] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): Babbage Marks sounds a good 2D
    [13:43] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Mark is a good one
    [13:43] Jimmy Branagh: Babbage mark = a black eye
    [13:43] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): Mine would count as 2D I suppose.
    [13:43] Garnet Psaltery: lol

    [13:44] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Ack.
    [13:44] Steadman Kondor: a marks is a sooty stain
    [13:44] Mosseveno Tenk: marks are new currency, quats are old, and still used for gambling records. the conversion rate is rather cryptic
    [13:44] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): The currency, folks. The currency.
    [13:44] Erin Brennan (abaloneka): /e laughs
    [13:44] Wright Davis (wrightguy0): i thought the babbage mark was the red spot you get on your face after passing out at the par
    [13:44] Erin Brennan (abaloneka) laughs
    [13:44] Maku Ibn-Selat (fecal.varnish): So, notes and/or coins?
    [13:44] Mosseveno Tenk: ok. 2d.. paper  money?
    [13:44] Stargirl Macbain: …do we know what a quat looks like?
    [13:44] Mosseveno Tenk: the babbage mark?
    [13:44] Stargirl Macbain: Money *nods*
    [13:44] Wright Davis (wrightguy0): bar*

    [13:45] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): Yes. Paper money.
    [13:45] Garnet Psaltery: Pensioner tram ticket (for Vic, since he’s now 8)
    [13:45] Mosseveno Tenk: i think quats are more of a term than an actual artifact outside of a museum
    [13:45] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): You can tell nobody in this town has any money
    [13:45] Mosseveno Tenk: but there might be some old currency coinds still in circulation
    [13:45] Emerson Lighthouse: Victor has money
    [13:45] Mosseveno Tenk: paper money. i like that one
    [13:45] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Everyone else’s?
    [13:45] Lia Venuto (venra.aries): yes he does, hes playing for my market!
    [13:45] Stargirl Macbain: Vic has all the money, the rest of us have…luck?
    [13:45] Tepic Harlequin: might there be different Marks issued by different trades or merchants?
    [13:45] Emerson Lighthouse nods to Dee
    [13:45] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): Underby certainly paid the BUMs with quatloos a few years back

  4. Mr Tenk Mr Tenk January 24, 2016

    [13:45] Mosseveno Tenk: we need a small build for the tables in the exhibit hall.

    [13:46] Mosseveno Tenk: too hard
    [13:46] Stargirl Macbain: For a small build: Pub signs?
    [13:46] Steadman Kondor: i am looking for robot sentinels to guard the mace of olaf

    [13:47] Steadman Kondor: that’d be a nice starter one
    [13:47] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): It’s just a head.
    [13:47] Jimmy Branagh: Speaking of, what happened to the museum we were gonna stuff all last years Oiling Festival stuff into?
    [13:47] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby) scoffs
    [13:47] Garnet Psaltery: Robot sentinels, hmm
    [13:47] Mosseveno Tenk: we do have the old guards at the city gate

    [13:47] Maku Ibn-Selat (fecal.varnish): New Babbage, Jimmy! It probably exploded.
    [13:47] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): Shanty town? hehe

    [13:48] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta): Coal bunkers…
    [13:48] Jimmy Branagh: Ahh, true sir

    [13:48] Jimmy Branagh chuckles

    [13:48] Steadman Kondor: I’d be happy to sponsor a steampunk robot sentinel build

    [13:48] Count Bologna (rexbologna): Snakeoil elixers?
    [13:48] Stargirl Macbain: Ooo Home remedies!
    [13:48] Tepic Harlequin: Fire is a good home remedy……
    [13:48] Mosseveno Tenk: that can be as simple as a label on a box, good for an intro build

    [13:49] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): Things our old wives would think up and say cures your hiccups or lice
    [13:49] Maku Ibn-Selat (fecal.varnish): More like wiggy oil remedies
    [13:49] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Ew
    [13:49] Lady Moldylocks (moldylocks): I might be able to swing a label on a box
    [13:49] Mosseveno Tenk: that you’d get at a chemists?
    [13:49] Count Bologna (rexbologna): Or Srizzle Snake Oil
    [13:49] Mosseveno Tenk: so that includes medicines?

    [13:49] Mosseveno Tenk: lets seem we re up to nine
    [13:49] Stargirl Macbain: I like that a lot, been a while since we had one that involves lables….
    [13:49] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Ugh. How about some legitamite medication?

    [13:50] Emerson Lighthouse: isn’t it all legitimate, Doctor?
    [13:50] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Not quite.
    [13:50] Tepic Harlequin: HBMs seem to be popular builds
    [13:50] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): Well there’s nothing to stop someone from entering medicine that might work
    [13:50] Wright Davis (wrightguy0): Honkin big machines are always fun
    [13:50] Stargirl Macbain: I like seeing the BHMs
    [13:50] Mosseveno Tenk: they are strictly showpieces. large, loud, and impractical
    [13:50] Mosseveno Tenk: it’s the steampunk way

    [13:51] Mosseveno Tenk: right, that’s 10
    [13:51] Garnet Psaltery: They are the most fun
    [13:51] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx) smiles
    [13:51] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse) expects Tepic to show up with a pile of sugar and choclate for what ails you
    [13:51] Jimmy Branagh: Yes.  Often very imaginative
    [13:51] Lady Sumoku: How about kid’s “toys”?

    [13:51] Mosseveno Tenk: and 2 more open
    [13:51] Lady Sumoku: Hoop and a stick.
    [13:51] Wright Davis (wrightguy0): like a two story machine that makes a small sandwich

    [13:52] Stargirl Macbain: Like…what games do the new babbage kids play?
    [13:52] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): Babbage board games could be amusing.
    [13:52] Mosseveno Tenk: lot of big stuff on the list this eyar. we need more small builds
    [13:52] Myrtil Igaly: We play magic tricks
    [13:52] Stargirl Macbain nods
    [13:52] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Boith would be good
    [13:52] Tepic Harlequin: Hide the Watch?
    [13:52] Myrtil Igaly: yes that one Tepic!
    [13:52] Maku Ibn-Selat (fecal.varnish) makes a note to address making a skittles set
    [13:52] Morphed Carter: Pooh sticks…. in the summer months
    [13:52] Jimmy Branagh: Stalk the Out-of-Towner
    [13:52] Stargirl Macbain: Games of alll kinds?

    [13:52] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): O.0
    [13:52] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Perhaps some posters advertising various landmarks around town?

    [13:53] Lady Moldylocks (moldylocks): Will This Thing Burn?
    [13:53] Jimmy Branagh: hehe
    [13:53] Lady Sumoku: The adults play that.
    [13:53] Stargirl Macbain: hehe
    [13:53] Tepic Harlequin: Agrivated Looking Innocent…..
    [13:53] Mosseveno Tenk: is that like will it float on letterman?
    [13:53] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): For 2 D did we ever get theater bulletins? Or in fact any kind of bulletin like the ones with the lights?
    [13:53] Mosseveno Tenk: i  miss will it float
    [13:53] Lady Moldylocks (moldylocks): lol
    [13:53] Count Bologna (rexbologna): Me too.
    [13:53] Stargirl Macbain: yes, we need to have that be a contest, I’ll sponsor for some…eh..mystery prize
    [13:53] Jimmy Branagh: On that thought, children’s books
    [13:53] Count Bologna (rexbologna) whispers: “Does it Burn?”
    [13:53] Mosseveno Tenk: posters for local sights?
    [13:53] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): Yes
    [13:53] Mosseveno Tenk: i think weve done that one before
    [13:53] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Yes, or maybe a poster for a music hall production would be nice.

    [13:54] Jimmy Branagh: Hmmm
    [13:54] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): Like fake ones
    [13:54] Mosseveno Tenk: let’s make it a general poster category
    [13:54] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Why not?
    [13:54] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): Babbage needs more bar songs.
    [13:54] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): We could use more things to plaster around town.
    [13:54] Garnet Psaltery: Are there bar games?
    [13:54] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta): ‘Maestro Cloudthunder and his Electronic Bees’
    [13:54] Mosseveno Tenk: the walls are looking awfully clean lately, no reason for that when you can get 8 on a mesh
    [13:54] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Bar songs… Good Lord

    [13:55] Garnet Psaltery: Like shove half-quatloo
    [13:55] Mosseveno Tenk: in era, sheet music covers would have been a Thing
    [13:55] Mosseveno Tenk: so you don’t even have to write the song
    [13:55] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): Bar songs were huge in this period.
    [13:55] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Imagine….
    [13:55] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Babbage Bar Songs…
    [13:55] Mosseveno Tenk: i like hat one.. sheet music. works for a 2D
    [13:55] Gabrielle Riel likes that idea
    [13:55] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): We used to have at least one in the BAR
    [13:55] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Yes, though they did try to improve that wall issue by plastering posters all over the outside of my house. Trouble is, it’s all on the side obsctructed by that condemed building.

    [13:55] Myrtil Igaly: Could we have Babbage musical instruments too?
    [13:55] Mosseveno Tenk: and you can always click it for the song. that’s an easy enough script
    [13:56] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Diabolical
    [13:56] Mosseveno Tenk: musical instruments… taht’s an HBM
    [13:56] Myrtil Igaly: nooooo not big ones!

    [13:58] Wulfriðe Blitzen  (ancasta) nods
    [13:58] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): That seems like a fair list.
    [13:58] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): It feels exciting!
    [13:58] Mr Underby (yoyo.underby): It is.
    [13:58] Garnet Psaltery: When does it start?
    [13:58] Mosseveno Tenk: excellent!

    [13:58] Garnet Psaltery: The failed builders

    [13:59] Tepic Harlequin: a deadline fer gravestones?
    [13:59] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): No we start March 1s
    [13:59] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute) snickers
    [13:59] Steadman Kondor: i want me remains to go up in smoke… up a smokestack
    [13:59] Lady Moldylocks (moldylocks): heh
    [13:59] Garnet Psaltery: lol

    [13:59] Maku Ibn-Selat (fecal.varnish): Or at least temporarily dead folk… just so you know where they got to
    [13:59] Mosseveno Tenk: and remember.. after you build yuor stuff… what do you do with it?
    [13:59] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): If it isn’t extended
    [13:59] Mosseveno Tenk: YOU PUT IT ON MARKETPLACE
    [13:59] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): Put it on marketplace?
    [13:59] Beatrixe Rouse (beatrixerouse): Hehe
    [13:59] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Bury it
    [13:59] Lady Sumoku: Bury it in marketplace!
    [13:59] Garnet Psaltery: Blow it up
    [13:59] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Ah, yes. I did that for my book last year.
    [13:59] Jimmy Branagh: I am lax in that regard.  Packaging is so tedious
    [13:59] Stargirl Macbain: pretend it never happened?
    [13:59] Steadman Kondor grimaces at the thought of previous builds that need more refining before MP
    [13:59] Mosseveno Tenk: marketplace helps you keep your tier paid, and that helps the city stay rezzed.
    [13:59] Mosseveno Tenk: your stuff is good enough.

    [14:00] Myrtil Igaly: yes haven’t had the time yet to put it all there
    [14:00] Myrtil Igaly: or courage :op
    [14:00] Mosseveno Tenk: there’s tons of worse crap on there than we won’t even show each other here.
    [14:00] Elizabeth Jarvinen (polysail): Tenk~  I haven’t put my babbage stuff on the marketplace at all~  Cause it’s Babbage stuff
    [14:00] Elizabeth Jarvinen (polysail) laughs
    [14:00] Mosseveno Tenk: and you only have to do it once.
    [14:00] Mosseveno Tenk: my crappy little texture shop keeps a couple of abandoned builds paid up here.
    [14:00] Lady Moldylocks (moldylocks): Can or will somebody put a post up on BAR about how to get it up on the MP?
    [14:00] Elizabeth Jarvinen (polysail): it’s part of what makes this set of sims unique~~
    [14:00] Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): There are still some crazy enough to run an inworld store

    [14:01] Mosseveno Tenk: and my even crappier mesh shop keeps another version of me in an apartment.
    [14:01] Steadman Kondor: yes i can try to put something in the BAR, lady moldylocks
    [14:01] Scottie Melnik: However, as Lizzie has experience with the Marketplace, I nominate her to be the head of the Chamber of Commerce. If we don’t have one already.
    [14:01] Mosseveno Tenk: what i buy on marketplace? windows, doors, doorframes.
    [14:01] Lady Moldylocks (moldylocks): Thank you, Steadman
    [14:01] Lady Sumoku: There are marketplace tutorials on the wiki already. But you can link to them so people find them easier.
    [14:01] Jimmy Branagh: ((brb))
    [14:01] Mosseveno Tenk: i hate white plastic windows. there’s a real lack of period ones.
    [14:01] Elizabeth Jarvinen (polysail): Marketplace is not hard to post to ~

    [14:02] Mosseveno Tenk: waaaay too much white shiny modern stuff out there. there’s a market to fill.
    [14:02] Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Agreed.
    [14:02] Stargirl Macbain: And I’m sure some of us who are mildly competent with photoshop will gladly help you build the images
    [14:02] Elizabeth Jarvinen (polysail): but things like bridges and buildings from around babbage ~ I felt it was nicer to keep them unique to here~
    [14:02] Mosseveno Tenk: yuo can do it ffom your inventory now, i think. i have’nt had to update since that came along
