    Illustration Tutorials and Advice Superthread

    A combination of Inkscape and GIMP might work. Bring it into GIMP, use the Color tool to shift everything to Black and White. Apply a Median Blur to smooth it out, then copy it over to Inkscape a run a Trace to Path. That'll let you export out just the lines on a transparency in a .PNG, which...

    Interesting speech synthesis video of JFK in an alternate history where the Moon Landing was a failure

    Yep. For a closer to OTL take, here's Nixon reading the speech instead: I've not tried, but my understanding is not that they're difficult once you get past the learning curve. It also depends on whether you're building your own model as well or working off an existing one, it's much...

    The M-BAM Main Thread

    Question, because I see someone on Reddit asking and I'm not sure how to answer: What resolutions are BAM, Q-BAM, and M-BAM maps at? Like, if I were to start an M-BAM map what basic settings for height/width or pixel density or whatever would I need to set Photoshop or GIMP to?

    You're welcome! RHotF as is I consider finished. I've thought a few times about starting up a new Future History timeline, but haven't really had enough personal interest. Maybe someday? We'll see. :)

    Thank you! I'm glad you're enjoying it! :D I'll be honest, I thought I already HAD threadmarked all the timeline posts...let me take a look and see if I can get that done, maybe today. :) If you have any questions, please feel free to post them in the thread (it doesn't count as bumping if...

    Open test of new board software

    Nice! Just noticed this post and have started playing with the Test Board. I like it so far! The new look will take some getting used to, but so did the look of the Third Board so that's fine. I'm definitely digging the Gray and Dark modes! :D The new features are very nice, especially the...

    WI: The Utah War turns hot, and the Mormons defeat the U.S.

    Considering this happened simultaneously with the last notable flare-up of Bleeding Kansas, which interestingly also pit President Buchanan against the local territorial government, could this have actually sparked an earlier version of the Civil War? Like, the Mormons thoroughly defeating the...

    WWII tech that could've been/were around for World War I

    Theoretically, assuming a pre-WWI POD? The Transistor. The Transistor was invented in 1947 after Bell Laboratories conducted a series of experiments in 1940 on the Cat's Whisker crystal detector (invented and patented around 1906) which led to the discovery of how the device worked. Those...

    What Became of Berold of Rouen, the sole survivor of the White Ship?

    While I was aware of the White Ship Disaster, it wasn't until today when I decided to read up on it that I learned there was a single survivor: a butcher named Berold of Rouen. I'd been under the impression that when the White Ship had gone down everyone aboard had perished! Does anyone know...

    Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

    Having seen the movie too, and having been completely unaware of the rumors surrounding the ending, yeah my friends and I were pretty stunned. Definitely an alternate history film. @ANARCHY_4_ALL - While that would've been cool too, the movie is ultimately not about them. It makes more sense...

    Nudity in Western Culture

    In the United States, we see-saw between being more libertine and more puritanical. The '20s, '40s, the '60s/'70s, and '00s/'10s I'd say were the more libertine periods. Each faced a puritanical backlash in the '30s, '50s, and '80s/90s.

    Europa Universalis IV - 13 August 2013

    I could've sworn I had EU4 installed, but apparently I never bought it? So I took a look at Steam and HOLY CRAP how is it still this expensive?? The game is like over six years old and still costs like $40?? I was expecting the base game to be like $20 by this point and the most expensive...

    AHC: 2030s tech by 1980s

    That's always going to be the question, isn't it? World War II caused a huge technological leap, but at the cost of so many lives that it's possible we traded what happened in OTL for what may have been an even greater leap in the '50s or '60s. It's not too hard to imagine a TL where without...

    AHC: 2030s tech by 1980s

    Well, one possibility might be if Bell Laboratories' discoveries of how the Cat's Whisker crystal detector worked - in OTL this happened around 1940, which led to the eventual development of the Transistor by 1947 - occurred decades earlier. The cat's whisker was patented in 1906, and from what...

    Just when you thought it was safe to go back in water: Woodrow Wilson eaten by shark?

    Very interestingly, not only is this happening smack dab in the middle of the 1916 Presidential election - this is AFTER the the party Conventions, which were held in June that year. So the Republicans will still be running Evans/Fairbanks, and in OTL they lost by only ~600,000 votes...

    Crusader Kings II - Paradox Entertainement (02/12)

    So, I'm reinstalling Crusader Kings II for the first time in years. Other than African Portraits and South Indian Portraits DLCs, both of which I already have, I basically have vanilla CK2. What DLCs would you guys say are essential?
