I imagine their APC is surplus equipment. What was the insignia on it seen here?
Centcomm 15th Apr 2013, 8:29 PM edit delete reply

you get to see it better later on :D but its still surplus :D
Sheela 16th Apr 2013, 8:04 PM edit delete reply

Well, it's certainly about to be Gutter Surplus, and might get appropiated by Dolly ... and then promptly sold off to the repair shop for creds. XD
Centcomm 16th Apr 2013, 8:26 PM edit delete reply

hey .. creds are creds... :D

There's no way this ends well.

For the gutters who're about to get more than what they bargained for. :P
Centcomm 15th Apr 2013, 8:29 PM edit delete reply

hehehe how true - you and ranger both called it..
Sheela 16th Apr 2013, 8:05 PM edit delete reply

I suspect this has been called for, for a loong time.
Ever since they attacked a certain science expedition team.

The mooks here haven't learned that the really hot, attractive people in the wastelands are either really badass (and look great being badass) or are the companions/property of someone else (who is likely a badass).

Without the intervention of a 3rd party, there will soon be at least 4 new charred stains at the rest stop.
Centcomm 16th Apr 2013, 5:41 AM edit delete reply

gigglefits :D
Sheela 16th Apr 2013, 8:07 PM edit delete reply

There's some truth to that.
Either total badasses, trophies, or completely lost.

And the chances of them being lost in that places are pretty slim.
Centcomm 17th Apr 2013, 5:17 AM edit delete reply

oh yeah.. considering the surroundings , yeah :D They are also taking a risk these are Breakers girls. not smart
cattservant 17th Apr 2013, 7:30 AM edit delete reply

Hope they don't owe Breaker a lot of money.
CyberSkull 17th Apr 2013, 11:15 PM edit delete reply

They'd better hope they owe Breaker more money than their constituent parts are worth.

Is Dolly passing extra binary data to Ceci in the background of that balloon in Panel One?
SpaceMonkey 15th Apr 2013, 9:45 PM edit delete reply

My understanding is that indicates that what's being said in that particular balloon is being transmitted at a rate/frequency inaudible to humans.
cattservant 15th Apr 2013, 10:10 PM edit delete reply

If I remember correctly,* It's an encoded burst transmission inaudible to human hearing.
[Dusty noticed it though.]

*(Not always true anymore.)
Centcomm 16th Apr 2013, 5:39 AM edit delete reply

@ spacemonkey and Cat Correct - any Balloon with 101010010 in faded text is high speed "speedspeak" it can sound like a "chirp" to some humans or to ones with enhanced hearing like dusty a high pitched warble like a modem.
Tokyo Rose 17th Apr 2013, 12:01 AM edit delete reply

I actually put a lot of thought into designing the visual effects for the speech balloons and such, and I do my best to stay consistent. The "binary" effect is one that I'm still kinda proud of.

I will even change my scripting a little on the fly to make a speech bubble look better-balanced. I'm not always 100% successful in getting it to look exactly right, but I think I'm at least improving with time.

I still hate doing thought balloons. I'm never really happy with how they turn out. Speech is relatively easy--one elliptical marquee, polygon marquee, done--but I have to use a bunch of elliptical marquees to frame the words for a thought balloon, and they always look weird to me. (And I can never ever get the little bubble-trail to the thinker to have a consistent size gradation. I probably could if I put ten seconds' more work in, though. I'm lazy.)

It occurs to me that Android Opera could be quite expeditious.

Where I come from, dumb NPCs like these guys are how my characters stay equipped with fresh weapons, armor, and ammo.

Hornet 16th Apr 2013, 7:13 AM edit delete reply
The Red Star Stormtroopers will be down in 30sec tops and mesh won't take much longer. DrakMan is about the only one that might cause trouble.

I love the banter between the guys. XDXD

Let's just hope the girls can get out of this mess.
