I made two posts in the BLF furry thread about this:
https://forum.blockland.us/index.php?topic=234126.msg8847841

Note that the post is 8 years old, and the image it quotes is 16 years old. But my main complaint about furries is still aesthetics. If every fursona just had an normal-ish looking face instead of a big slobbering jowly Don Bluth dog mouth, I don't think there would be nearly as much conflict.

But for a lot of furries the disgust reaction seems to be the goal - they get off on it, like a flasher. I have a theory that this may be autism related in some cases, where the offender misinterprets the signals they are getting from others, so when they see someone be disgusted they feel arousal.

It may also tie into the intestinal-parasites-make-you-gay theory, where disgusting activities are connected to sexual desire in order to spread parasitic worms.

>gets up, grunting, brutally disarmed

None of these things effect the shape of the model.

>You also chose the 240p video for the source

I took the screenshot directly from the video game myself. You can view it on my steam profile here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1995350758
You can even see fraps running in the corner.

>cherrypicking

Here is a plain screenshot of gameplay: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=3212435737 She has been purposefully de-sexualized from her prior appearances, even from prior games within this reboot arc.

>Her ugliness is not political. Her image is supposed to convey a mean, naturalistic, brutal emotions, not cause sexual arousal

Even assuming this is true (it isn't), this would be a change from her depiction in previous games and indeed, any depiction of an "amazon" and even common usage of the word. "Amazon" implies an tall, athletic, attractive woman, not a brute, not an anti-hero. Wonder Woman is an amazon.

Sure you can subvert that, but you'll be making a statement - especially if you're subverting an already existing character.

>How would this be of any relevance?

Because Harmony is presented sexually, in a performative defilement of aesthetics. The characters in GTA:SA wear greasy tank tops, they get hair cuts, they go to the gym - they are intentionally banal and profane. Harmony is on a stage, in fantastical clothing, presented as a sacred object, with the goal of confronting and challenging normal heterosexual desires. And I'd bet that if you asked the designer (tactfully) they would agree with me.

>Lara from the new games is still hot, but you deliberately picked some mishap of a screenshot to demonstrate otherwise

I don't know what to tell you man. It's an unmodified screenshot from the game. You can watch the cutscene here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdlocA-WFuM&t=2849s The male character is fucked up looking too. I think they de-sexualized everyone by shrinking the shoulders and inflating the waists. Given the high graphical competency of the rest of the game, I figure it must have been done on purpose.


>the muscle argument maybe only proves some technical/design issues

The technical issue is that women don't have muscles like that, so when you add them artificially in a post process, it looks weird.


>She's supposed to be ugly

I have no idea how you could possibly think that. Everything about the game is terrible. The shooting mechanics, the writing, the voices. Oh god the voices, a wacky voice dripping with irony and pop culture references is not funny. Being annoying on purpose is still annoying.

There's a whole video essay about the writing style:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyHG8EfcA5c

The problem is he tries to say that Borderlands fell off and it used to be good, which is just not true. It was always bad. He was just to young to know better during the first two games. His brain turned on and finally realized it was shit. Gearbox makes shit games. Literally every game after Half-Life: Opposing Force has been garbage.

The browser version uses a magical subset of direct input, I don't know how it works. If you have a problem you're on your own. Plug in an xbox controller.

The downloaded version uses real direct input via sdl, it should display the name of the controller and everything. If you're using some ghetto hacked wiimote driver that doesn't support direct input correctly, you're on your own. Plug in an xbox controller.

Running through the exits, and the interactive bonus and Daisy rooms are design decisions and I think they're fun. I would rather interact with something than watch a canned animation. A lot of people get a laugh when they discover that they can preemptively kill daisy with super balls.

Music looping is tricky because they're midi remixes I found online rendered into .ogg files. Also some sound functions are broken in the browser, which is why coin collection sounds stack up instead of repeating - so looping seamlessly might not even be possible.

If you were going to make a just-for-fun kit, you could probably reduce the price by using plastic gears, a smaller battery, and a simpler way to put the frame together. There would still be too much hand labor involved in attaching the gears to the wheels though.
