XCOM2 Expansion

Got back into XCOM2. Primarily (if delayed effect) because of Viking ZX releasing the Dusk Guard and Dusk Rogues as soldiers. Splruged on the expansion as well. Cleaned up and added more mods. Apparently a whole lot more pony voice packs now, so most of the pony soldiers will have proper pony voices.

Opening mission was not exactly smooth. Crystal Wishes didn’t survive. Apple Bloom and Buttercup were injured. Apparently in the expansion you can make propaganda posters for fallen teammates. Might have to see if I can export them to put them up here on the blog. Second mission was a total failure. Mostly due to it being a new sewer map that was throwing me off with weird camera angles and layout. That’s the excuse I’m using for going back to earlier save and trying it again, anyway.

Celestia’s Scheme

My new theory is that Princess Celestia never does anything worthwhile because she’s actively trying to get fired/impeached/deposed from the throne. She doesn’t want to just quit but she hates being in charge. So she’s passively aggressively trying to be the worse ruler ever, but without hurting anyone. One thousand years of her suggesting crazy out-there utopian policies and when disaster happens she does the bare minimum to save the kingdom. The ponies of Equestria just love her so much that they do their best to carry out her crazy insane utopian policies and have put together the chessmaster Celestia myth to explain how she never does anything but disasters get fixed.

Random writing

Traditional Unicorn architecture involves a front door several feet above the ground. In the olden days it was so that Unicorns could look down on anyone that came to visit them and make sure that teleportation was the only dignified way to enter a house. In the modern days Canterlot building codes require a set of stairs if the doorway is raised up. Many Unicorn nobles still take advantage of the height advantage to look down on anyone who comes to their door.

Princess Celestia, who could rant for hours and hours about stupid Unicorn traditions, actually liked this particular one. It meant that she didn’t have to hurt her neck looking down whenever she visited those houses. It put her more or less at eye-level with the ponies she talked to. At least until she was invited into the building for tea. It was always tea. Never coffee. Never ice tea. Never cookies. Always tea. Never even cake! Ponies even knew she liked cake. But no, always tea.

Pony Stories 821

Last night (as of writing this intro anyway) I had a fairly complex and involved dream that was Adagio and Shining Armor falling in love… and apparently Adagio was ex-queen of the Changelings? Changing perspectives and… at one one I think there was a standard fantasy novel quest?  Was pretty neat, actually. I have no idea where it came from.
