new ad types

So last night I had a dream that they were adding a new type to pokemon and it was ‘Scooping’ type. They didn’t explain what it was or what it meant but it was mostly being applied to unpopular or weak pokemon so like Dunsparce was Normal/Scooping and Granbull was Fairy/Scooping.


So yesterday I’ve decided to add a night mode texture to the pole itself to make it lit up by it’s own light (like in real life or at least like in-game Maxis wooden pole does).
But suddenly I realized, that it is impossible to have a pole and a light cone/spot light working properly at the same time. I’ve tried a bunch of shader variations for this material but every time something went wrong.

But then I just added a new material type to the maxis neighborhood material shader. That was a crazy idea, but it worked! So now there’s two functional night mode material types. One for usual night mode textures (like windows and poles in particular, it has alpha channel enabled though) and another one is for those light cones, spot lights and glow effects!

Now I need to enable bump/normal mapping for ‘day time’ textures to have those nice little ‘StandardMaterial’ features back


Hayyyy I made the bby a Twitter so like if you have an account feel free to follow him if you wantttt <3333

TO NOTE: These are meant to be quick so no WIPS or drastic revisions.

People, animals, etc welcomed; No copyright characters; No mega adult-centered content (keep it PG13).  (Additional charges apply if the character is detailed/ needs design/ you want extra)

Contact me at with “B+W Sketch Commission” in the title, references to your character, and your tumblr/insta/twitter username somewhere if you’re interested, thanks!

Anything helps, thanks! Reblogs on this post would be most appreciated ✌ 


Alright here’s what I recommend you use to avoid NDRV3 spoilers if you have the XKit extension:

Everyone knows this one of course.
I use the following blacklisted words:

  • ndrv3 spoilers
  • drv3 spoilers
  • v3 spoilers
  • danganronpa spoilers
  • dr spoilers
  • spoilers

I have the following options checked:

  • Enable alt + B shortcut for adding new words
  • Show type of post when it’s blocked
  • Check author blog titles and usernames for blacklisted words
  • Don’t block my own posts
  • Don’t block posts I’ve liked or replied to
  • Use improved checking (might slow down your computer)

No Recommended
This is one I haven’t seen people talk about.
I have the following options checked

  • Get rid of recommended likes
  • Get rid of two-column recommended blogs (which isn’t as important as the recommended likes one, but I like this personally and you might avoid spoilery icons through this)

That’s ‘cause when you like something, this might happen:

tungls recommending you other posts. I wouldn’t want to see a spoiler through something like this. So if you’re not going on Hiatus and want to avoid spoilers make sure to get this extension as well and check get rid of recommended likes!

Txch This Week: Impossible Planets And Sci-Fi Floating Cities

by Norman Rozenberg

This week on Txchnologist, we got up close and personal with some of the tiniest innovations making huge splashes in the world of science. First, Julia Greer and her Caltech research team has made leaps in the world of nanoscale materials. Using direct laser writing, the team is creating complex microscopic architecture that can be tuned to specific needs by engineers.

Scientists in the Netherlands have designed flat shapes that fold into all kinds of tiny 3-D structures with a drop of water. In addition to cool party tricks, these sand granule-sized pieces of silicon have potentially important uses in medicine.

Genetic engineers looking for better ways to make biofuels have designed bacteria to convert complex carbohydrates found in non food plants directly into ethanol. With rising oil prices across the globe and increasing carbon emissions, a new source of fuel is not only important but necessary. This development may have just steered us into the fast lane.

It’s no secret that advances are moving fast throughout medicine. Now, a Swiss team has taken things a step further and designed medical implants that could potentially last a lifetime using diamond-like carbon coatings and the rare, nonreactive metal tantalum. Meanwhile, Indian Institute of Science engineers are using wasp physiology to design new surgical tools. A species of wasp may be the next muse for less invasive tools that will help recovery times and outcomes.

Now we’re bringing you the news we’ve been following this week in the world of science, technology and innovation.
