I’ve been exploring Junkertown and taking tons of screenshots, and here are some thoughts. I am so sorry for the massiveness of this post omg, please feel free to blacklist #long post if you need to!

  • The Queen of Junkertown is a BABE and I’m in love with her and also very gay. Also the flag of Junkertown is bomb, and I adore looking at all the various signage, it adds so much flavor to the map
  • Even a lawless society has to have a few rules, and those rules basically amount to: start shit, get hit
  • Junkrat and Roadhog really are hated by everyone, oh my god. Shoot them on sight. I love it.
  • “Watch your step!” Perhaps where Junkrat got his singsong line every time he lays a trap that someone triggers?
  • Base notes:
    • It looks like they’ve got a hatch in the floor there. (Edit: It’s been confirmed that it’s a pressure plate!! There’s two of them, if two people stand on them, it opens up a hidden treasure room!)
    • They have an entire fucking vending machine of pachimari, this is the most extra thing I’ve ever seen, I’m crying
    • Roadhog makes his own hogdrogen, and it looks like it starts out as a yellow sloshy liquid.
    • There’s a fish head in their kitchen area – I’ve always believed that Roadhog’s a vegetarian because of his anti-meat patches. Maybe he’s a pescatarian? Or maybe it’s just Junkrat who’s eating the fish?
    • Lots of chains hanging from the ceiling, probably to refill Roadhog’s chain hook
    • Everyone’s already pointed out that there’s only one bed in Junkrat and Roadhog’s base. Things Roadhog needs to sleep: an oxygen tank, a fan, and food. Look at all those dirty dishes. Someone pointed out that Junkrat has his own place to sleep and argued that this proves the base is only Roadhog’s house and thus they’re not sleeping together. Which is. Such a reach, why are you so vehemently against the implications that these two are together. Anyways, Junkrat does have a couch set up in his workshop with a blanket and a pillow and a fridge and a sink, but I don’t buy for a second that he actually lives there full time. He has too much of an established presence in the base for it to be just Roadhog’s house – he’s got those grenades and spray cans everywhere, and I’m pretty sure he’s the one chugging those soft drinks by the cooler. And these assholes eat their meals together like a married couple. Junkrat’s got the tiny bowl and the normal-ish chair and the entire pot of coffee, Roadhog’s got the big bowl and the tire-seat chair and the sensible single cup of coffee (Edit: I can’t believe I didn’t notice this until someone pointed it out – they stole Roadhog’s chair from the takeaway, look!). What domestic little shits. No, Junkrat’s workshop is just a workshop with some amenities, bc the man absolutely loses track of time when he’s tinkering and it’s easier to crash in his mad lab than go back to sleep with Roadhog, imo.
    • THE PLAN: Junkrat’s boundless enthusiasm makes me smile.
    • They have two chairs on their front porch with a cooler and some drinks in between them. Imagine these two just. Sitting on the porch together and sharing a drink. They’re so married, I’m l i v i n g for this domestic shit. 
  • On the subject of Junkrat’s workshop: he actually does play cricket! Or he at least owns a cricket paddle (okay, cricket BAT, you fucking animals, i know shit about sports, just humor me w my lack of sports knowledge here)
  • Junkrat has a safe that’s covered in DANGER, NO ENTRY, GO BACK signs and that’s hilarious to me. Also hilarious: his “NO TRESPASSING“ sign over a door that’s boarded up from the inside.
  • It looks like both Junkrat and Roadhog got their tattoos at Swagman’s Needlepoint! Roadhog’s Wild Hog Power design is marked as sold. Junkrat’s bicep tattoo is also up on the wall!
  • I guess there’s?? A thriving music scene in Junkertown?? Where is the Mad Max flamethrower guitarist

Vaard lost a lot at Shattrath and this gave me all the feels.

Compilation Posts

i’ve noticed that it’s become a trend on here for compilation posts to start circulating. what i mean by a compilation post is the op is collecting a variety of gifs, screenshots, and photos to make a sort of “list” about whatever topic they choose. this may be a “sexy jimin” post or a “savage yoongi” post, but no matter the topic a lot of these posts are using stolen and reposted work

how do you spot when something is stolen? @jjeonguk wrote a great post about it here. some of the tips include gifs being different sizes and/or styles, being watermarked with a url other than op’s, and being tagged with things like “bts smut” just to get their post into as many searches as possible.

reposters in general really piss me off, but thankfully most of the time once they’re called out they stop and/or the community bands together to make sure the stolen work isn’t being reblogged. but these compilation posts are popping up on my dash quite frequently. i never see anyone calling them out, and i never see people questioning if it’s stolen. plus, they’re getting thousands of notes. whole blogs seem to revolve around generating these kinds of compilation posts full of stolen content, and people keep letting it happen

here’s an example of what these posts with stolen content look like:

So, every time I start to think about anything based in Insomnia, I constantly have to remind myself of the sheer vastness of the city so I thought I would throw together some quick references for all of you others out me who may be planning things based in the crown-city so you don’t forget the sheer magnitude of the place, especially since in the game we only get to explore an absolutely tiny and minescule amount in the grand scheme of things.  

All images are either from my own screenshots or good ol’ google

Imagine every modern city rolled into one and on steroids.  The citadel itself is based off of Shinjuku but from kingsglaive we see many glimpses or areas of the entire city and it definitely seems to take from most modern major cities.  The fact that they have their own currency (at the beginning of the game prompto questions what a gil is so they either have their own currency or its all electronic but that is a tale for another day) should demonstrate the magnitude of this place.

And from above it looks even more vast:

So, its pretty fucking huge there is no doubt about it and I think we can all get that into our minds.  So the next step, is how big is it in comparison to the places within our open world that we are free to explore?

What we can see on our world map is approximately a quarter of the whole thing, since we have but one of the four corners on our map.  The walls around the outside of it are bigger than the main roads in Leide.  Pretty damn big. 

As you can see, the distance of the road that takes you from the city checkpoint, to the actual physical gates leading into insomnia is comparable to that of the road between said checkpoint and galdin quay, so judging by ingame driving times etc just to get out of insomnia and into leide would be at least an hour or two’s drive.  But then also not long in the grand scheme of things if you think how long it would take to drive between two of the cities furthest points (not taking into account ringroads etc but that again is way above my paygrade).

Now let’s see, the first place we go to in game after someone *cough*dammitprompto*cough* broke our car, hammerhead.  Tiny little garage, has a caravan a restaurant and a shop, standard service station sort of thing: (it goes without saying screenshot references at this point were all taken at the same zoom point yaddayadda)

well.  and that is being generous being the general square crop on hammerhead. There would be buildings that could easily engulf the entire stop.  

So how about somewhere bigger, Lestallum it seems a hive of activity and has a lot of residents…

Doesn’t look that much too big but oh wait, that entire square isnt the entirety of lestallum, if we badly cut out the habitable section of lestallum aka every bit that we can explore and place it on our grand insomnia…

How did the insomnian refugee’s all fit at lestallum?!? Asking the real questions here.

To truly comprehend, how about we take a look at longwythe peak, that fella, you know the one, beady eyes tries to flatten you our good old friend the adamantoise, round of applause everyone~~~

well shit.

So, I hope that gives you all a better realisation as to the sheer size of insomnia, and that it may help anybody else out plotting anything in insomnia be it past present or future to truly understand its scale.
