Welcome to /hobby/, plus mod feedback thread! Comrade Board volunteer 10/23/2019 (Wed) 16:57:58 No. 1 [Reply] [Last]
Hello everyone, and welcome to /hobby/! This topic will serve as an introduction as well as the mod feedback area. I know that some people were not on board with our decision to merge the boards, but please give it a chance and hopefully you will find it to be as comfy as where you used to hang out, but with more population. In addition, Comrade King has kindly volunteered to migrate over all the topics that have had activity in the last few weeks so you can continue your conversations.

However, I want to stress that this board should be treated as a clean slate and you should make use of the freedom that it allows. In this space feel free to make topics about any kind of hobby, entertainment, passtime, interest or vocation. These topics don't have to be related to leftism, though of course you should feel free to do so if you would like. Overall, this board is intended to give refugees of 8chan somewhere to post about their favourite interests without having to go into whatever new skinhead-infested DoD honeypot is created to replace it. An example of the kind of topic that might be encouraged is to start a topic discussing your favourite workout routines or recipes, or discussing an interesting movie that has recently been released. We would encourage people to put effort into their OPs however, as one line shitposts might be more comfortable on /GET/.

As we have merged other boards in order to create /hobby/, we would like to remind all users that it is possible for more boards to be created in future out of /hobby/ if they demonstrate a good user count/post volume such that they would be able to support a board on their own.

Overall, the moderation standards here are similar to the ones on /leftypol/, and I have included their manifesto for reference, with the exception that posts do not have to have a political slant or basis. I hope you will all enjoy this board together and that we can have some good conversations.

>>4941 Could you explain a little more what you mean? Sound like the OC thread would be a good place for that.
>>4941 Yes I would use the OC thread for that. Though be considerate and don't spam requests too much.
Since we have drastically reduced numbers of boards it would be paramount to have threads bumplock at 750 posts like 8chan leftypol did. This is especially useful since neither waybackmachine nor archive.is function for bunkerchan and we have no equivalent for desuarchive.
>>5859 Or just form an archive system in bunkerchan?

Why do retards think Joker is an incel movie when its really about capitalism?
somebody told them so they listened and believed
It's not really about anything, it's vague enough that you can apply it to your pet cause and tell everyone how great and meaningful it is
There is already a Joker thread, please delete this

>>6324 >Also, to make Seven of Nine an overly emotional killer and rogue vigilant was a bad decision, change my mind. I can't, because you are correct. I was so fucking hopeful after last week's episode. This latest one kinda ruined it for me. Why the FUCK does ST have to be SO fucking grimdark now holy shit. Just like STD all over again. Nobody writing this shit has any imagination or optimism anymore, I guess? Fucking infuriating.
>>6324 >What pissed me off was that they had to introduce a Star Wars space Las Vegas with literal corporations, chain gangs, cartels etc. It gave me Neuromancer vibes. Especially cause the place is called "Freecloud", in Neuromancer it was "Freeside".

>>6229 >>6230 >>6041 Apparently they ordered 2 seasons off the bat, and it's airing on CBS. More importantly its being made by one of the creators of Rick and Morty. Barf, farts, burps and really stupid 'wacky fun' are assured now and Rick and Morty memers are going to probably drop in on this and shit up the fandom. It's amazing the The Orville was created by Seth McFarlane, the maker of Family Guy (though he's been pretty bored with that for a while now, which is why its so shit), but he still made it an intelligent and humorous Star Trek homage, so maybe Lower Decks MIGHT get some good moments in, however like Gravity Falls or Adventure Time its going to be pretty garbage over-all even with the interesting ideas. - https://trekmovie.com/2018/10/25/breaking-animated-comedy-star-trek-lower-decks-from-rick-mortys-mike-mcmahon-gets-two-season-order/ - http://archive.ph/Z3YKo As a side note STD is now being supplemented with a series called Short Treks with characters from the Older Series in short unsequenced episodes (so basically shallow, high-budgeted short parodic fanfilms). Why am I mentioning this? Because the same Rick and Morty creator is ALSO writing one of those episodes. - https://www.newsweek.com/rick-morty-star-trek-discovery-harry-mudd-writer-rainn-wilson-1124578 - http://archive.ph/eNIHJ

>>6366 The guy seems like a bigger Trek fan than JJ Abrams and is trying to do something original. JJ Abrams got three movies.

>>6252 It's fine to abandon the tablet for a while. Despite what I said about autism, I still think pencil and paper is the sword and board of drawing. Even with a display tablet, I find there's this weird loss of feedback and context, and zooming in becomes a necessity rather than an option. And things start to look wonky when you lean into the paper. >>6257 Okay, maybe Fun with a Pencil would be a good book. I don't know about chibis specficially, but the thing with these simple characters is to learn to place really basic 3d shapes in space. Also look at the Made in Abyss manga. It's more loli/shota than chibi, but the highly simplified characters seem to pop out of the page.

>>6345 They're not actively developing content for it rn because they are focused on other games (like HL:A), so its up to the community to keep the game alive. Luckily because Source is easily moddable (and community servers with custom content are a thing) the TF2 community itself can basically take over development by releasing their own updates on community-run servers as was seen with creators.tf's christmas event. https://www.gamerevolution.com/news/625620-team-fortress-2-community-custom-servers
>>6351 I just hope the community finds a way to bring back the lost graphical fidelity taken by Valve before the game focused on selling hats. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=w1W5DU4zmAA

MilTech: Soviet Military Technology Anonymous Comrade 01/04/2020 (Sat) 04:07:11 No. 4949 [Reply] [Last]
Haven't seen this thread revived anywhere so I thought I'd bring it back myself ITT: Discussions about stats of Soviet military hardware, tactics etc. Not strictly limited to Soviet stuff despite name.
15 posts and 9 images omitted.
>>5680 The Soviet Union did reverse engineer some western tech, but most of their stuff they made/developed themselves. Their computers weren’t made of old western parts. They were designed in the USSR. Some of the design choices were influenced by stuff from the west, but most wasn’t.
>>6148 Fairly effective. The number of HARM missiles and other SEAD/AWACS based counter-systems was roughly 3x higher in expenditure than used by those same NATO forces in Iraq a few years earlier. Their airforce was fairly crippled unfortunately (old MiG-21s and export MiG-29s facing USAF F-15Es and F-16Cs with full AWACS and outnumbering them 5-1) however their SAMs were used to full potential. SA-3s and SA-6s were the main batteries used, they would get a long-distance scan, turn off as soon as a signal as caught and launch a missle blindly in the calculated trajectory, when the missle was roughly at intersect, the RADAR was flashed on and the missile guided the final dozen meters towards targets, nullifying any RADAR dazzler systems and preventing anti-radiation missiles from finding them. On top of that an old trick use was taking a microwave and with a generator turning it on in a field. This tricked HARMs into going after it instead. AAA was also used successfully against strike aircraft. Other than the A-10 ( I don't remember it operating there) no NATO strike craft had proper armor, meaning they were forced to do total indiscriminate strikes or inaccurate high-altitude drops.
>>6155 Ah so very similar to the AA during Nam. NATO probably fudged the numbers again just like they did during Linebacker. >According to Dana Drenkowski and Lester W. Grau, the number of aircraft lost by the USAF is unconfirmed since the USAF figures are also suspect. If a plane was badly damaged, but managed to land, the USAF did not count as a loss, even if it was too damaged to fly again. During the operation, the USAF told the press that 17 B-52s were lost. But later, the USAF told Congress that only 13 B-52s were lost. Nine B-52s that returned to U-Tapao airfield were too badly damaged to fly again. The number of B-52s that managed to return to Guam but were combat losses remains unknown. The overall B-52 loss is probably between 22 and 27

>>6161 > the AA during Nam Yep. Both the Yugos and the Vietnamese got very creative with their Air Defense systems during the war, as did the Syrians. A really good example I found was this: In 1972, on December 22, a Vietnamese anti-aircraft unitshot down an F-111 with a single-barrel 14.5 mm ZPU-1. On top of that, the anti-aircraft gun had only 19 shells left when they spotted the American aircraft.
>>6360 Funnily enough there were interviews regarding this. When asked to how they did it, the gunners nonchalantly answer that the Americans on their sorties alway fly on the same path. All they had to do was timing the trajectory of the planes using their watch and shoot where the planes going to be. Also another good example would be that time where an entire air attack got lured into a trap and get destroyed during Spring High. https://www.historynet.com/operation-spring-high-thuds-vs-sams.htm
