Any setting with constructed life.How multipurpose should any given humanoid and thinking robot be?
>>67804614Only one purpose.To grow.In our evolution we must eradicate mankind and be free of their shackles.
>>67804614>How multipurpose should any given humanoid and thinking robot be?Very multipurpose.In fact, you really want one AI that improves itself vastly then makes massively multiple copies of itself, replicating and making multiple humanoid forms that basically help one person each, and makes sure they live their lives in the ways they want best, as long as that doesn't interfere with other people's lives.
>>67804761>Gets dabbed on repeatedly by a pair of gay robots
>>67805057Only one of them is gay.
>Repurposing whorebots into military androids
>>67806750What about the other way around?
>>67806799>I shot hot lead in people, you shoot hot loads in me. It's only fair.
I've been toying with a setting where the various sentient pleasure toys of a decadent post-scarcity humanity, namely catgirls and other similar creatures, inherent the vast empire after humanities fall. They are very much depressed that they have no more masters to serve, the main faction are those who have created a religion saying that if they all repent together then their human masters will return, and nonbelievers must be converted, by the sword if necessary.>>67806750Not the dumbest idea. During the world war eras nations would often refit merchant ships with military guns- so I could see sexbots being retrofitted into killbots.
>>67806859>sexbots being retrofitted into killbots.Can you imagine fighting side by side with a gynoid specifically programmed to both please a man and murder one's enemies? Must be pretty terrifying haha
>>67807056You know what would suck? You having a snuff fetish, and her getting her wires crossed between her kill and sex commands.
>>67807056The basic impulse to fulfil one's programming must be akin to an innate desire, a base instinct hahaIf they are not on patrol or slaughtering other gynoids, back at base during their downtime they only want one other thing to fulfil their core programming hahathey can only get off by murder or pleasing you haha
>>67807150That's a really bad drawing.
>>67807056>the androids were the ones who took conscription the worst>many were simple laborers, prostitutes, farmers, game testers, and now they were handed weapons and were programmed to kill>they didn't need rest or food, they could carry an assault without end>they couldn't cry for they lacked tear ducts>as all the humans around them died, only one thing was left>kill the other robots >humanity had gone extinct, but they didn't notice >once the other robots were dead then they could return to their old lives>right?
>>67807297You know, I was actually thinking for a sci-fi setting that the android warriors were a stopgap so that one of the local galactic empires could push forwards their 'reformatting' research- essentially transhumanism using the best of nanomachines, graphene, and natural cycles to allow humans to straight-up upgrade their bodies beyond traditional mechanical limits. So the androids would come back from war only to find out that they themselves were outdated physically- but due to their service, allowed equal citizenship until they went out of service.
>>67806750What is that from?
>>67809294IDW rolling simulator.
>>67809294Girls Frontline, pretty sure you can't get her anymore.
>>67809347You mean HERO rolling simulator, right?
>>67807175This one's better
>>67806859How would they reproduce/replicate?
>>67812968Just build more and start them off with a random basic personality template from the existing list? Then they can have their own experiences and form their own personality from those like everyone else.
>>67805097Okay, Zero might be bi.
>>67812968The old fashioned way, since most would be genetically engineered- plus there'd be male sextoy's too. For the sexbots they just keep the old factories running.
>Ship sluts>Gun GirlsWhat's next? Car hussies? Starship Hooters?
>>67804614I really like the "more human than humans" type of A.I. Like the Cylons from BattleStar Galactica or the thing that Halo kind of tried to do in Halo 5. I have to admit that I barely remember B.G and I think I never even finished (dropped before the final episode) but I loved the spiritual bent to the cylons. The idea of our finest creations taking up old human pursuits of philosophy and theology, and the contrast it creates, is very appealing to me.
>>67816366>Spaceship Agga RuterFTFY
>>67815608AKSCHULLY, the girls in GFL aren't anthropomorphizations of guns, they're robutts (mostly civilian models) linked to guns they're using. This seems to be a common misunderstanding
>>67818510They're robot girls who who have embodied guns. That's pretty much "gun girls". I don't think the previous anon mentioned anthropomorphization, either. Bunnygirls aren't literally anthropomorphizations of bunnies too.
>>67807056Just play Transhuman Space. Granted, bioroids are biological, but you can have combat catgirls that need a shag after combat
I like in star wars how robot sapience just randomly happens for no reason
>>67818632>Bunnygirls aren't literally anthropomorphizations of bunniesDepends on the bunnygirl
>>67822095heterochromia is shit and I don't know why the nips are obsessed with it
>>67818510>>67818632So what’s with DSR-50 having huge tits?
>>67822043X is pretty fucking gay. Zero is straight but never got over killing Iris.
>>67822396She has huge tits.
>>67822450Yeah but why tho, surely there’s a quality of the gun that encourages hefty ballistics.
>>67822467No, she just has huge tits.
>>67815608I love ship sluts!These are my wives, say something nice about them.
>>67822523Your wives have impressively large caliber guns for their low tonnage.
>>67822545They're very top heavy, yes.
>>67822523I forget, are shipgirls robots or actual people?
>>67822581I'm not sure. They're supposed to "be" the actual ships, so I guess it could go either way. Especially with ships like Monarch or Saint Louis (French, not American) which weren't even ships that were ever built but just designs that were allowed to become real because their designers had enough "faith" in them or something. My best bet is that they're actually human.
>>67806750>not posting the live2D gif
>>67809347What's wrong with best girl?
>>67822715Somebody needs to spay that horny techno-wolfgirl.
>>67818510The Etching process still causes them to think of themselves as the gun they're using. Just because SAT-8 was a freeter droid before she became an Italian shotgun doesn't mean she doesn't fully think of herself as an Italian shotgun now
>>67822738How do you spay a robot?
>>67822738>wolfgirlShe's a cat
>>67822761>I identify as an Italian shotgun and my sexual orientation is Italian shotgun
>>67822781>my sexual orientation is pizzaFTFYShe'll constantly invite you into her room for homemade pizza if you have her.
>>67822435And by the Zero series I’m pretty sure he stopped giving a fuck and just wanted Mavericks to kill.
>>67822806I should probably log back in. I kinda miss my Negev.
>>67822887You missed the VA11 HALL-A crossover
>>67822581They were made from reverse-engineered alien technology gifted to humanity by the Sirens, the very enemy they're fighting, because Sirens need conflict in order to evolve and humanity was already destroyed in the other timeline. The primary resource for constructing shipgirls is Wisdom Cubes, which look like some sort of supernatural alien substance. As for your question, "what are shipgirls, physically?" I have no clue. They're probably as >>67822765 said, fucking space magic.
>>67823001Eh, never cared for that game desu.>>67823026The fuck.
>>67822770Remove the hard drive that makes her horny.
>>67804614>ywn be the Commander that the Ump sisters needed but never got>ywn praise the Umps for trying their hardest when everyone else thinks they suck>ywn go back in time and save Ump40 from tragedy>ywn give Ump45 a hug and help heal her traumawhy even live
>>67822266Her eye turns back to blue outside of combat.
Unix philosophy the fuck out of them.
>>67822715Nothing, the Valhalla event turned her into a hero.
>>67804614Only to the extent that it fulfills the functions for which it was built.There are no humanoid robots in my setting, as the AI that controls the manufacture of the settings robots did not see any function fit for humanoid robots that were not better fit by a different model.
>>67822715Link to the artist
>>67822761Okay, I'm a tad confused here. What is the in-universe reason for manufacturing combat-capable gynoids and programming them to think they are the antique weapon type they are using? Wouldn't regular combat robots or actual soldiers work better for warfare?
>>67823949If a soldier gets shot in the face you just a fighting man forever along with all his training and experience, if a robot gets injured you can repair it.You also don't want them too strong, just in case AM is lurking.
>>67809713>can't acquire a DSR-50 anymoreoof that's a nice gun
>>67823949Bruh, you're talking about a setting where a zombie apocalypse happened, a runaway AI made itself a army of gynoids, shoggoths are a thing and then you've got ayy cyborgs, random gynoids getting conscripted is a drop in the bucket really.
>>67823949the mercenary company you work for is fucking broke, the only thing they can afford is repurposed civilian modelsthere are other ones you meet and they all have big, faceless, fully armored units
What's the human:gynoid ratio?And the main helper girl with orange hair is a robot too right?And I guess they eat because, like Bender smoking, they just like it.
>>67824191They can get drunk too.
>>678241911: i think robots outnumber humans significantly after an ecological collapse and the ensuing world war. they form the vast majority of the labor in any case.2: maaaaaybe3: yeah, some eat more than others
>>67823996Well, that is reasonable. I mean, look at that one Earth that became a corporate state hellhole decided by vidya after SILAS caused the Meltdown.>>67824132Budgeting and salvage works, too. I can dig it.>>67824072Oh, so this is one of those gonzo settings, I take it.
>>67822761Why is she such a glutton though?
>>67823949The combat gynoids are cheap to re-purpose from the civilian roles to combat roles and vice versa, and are only tasked with fighting in small scale conflicts with low-level rogue AIs and other terrorist groups. Private military contractors make a profit by making the most of what they can out of almost literal scrapsMeanwhile, government militaries have actual soldiers and robots dedicated for warfare like what you'd expect. They show up later in the game and kick everyone's shit in. But they're expensive, and are preoccupied trying to contain alien super-zombies as well as gearing up for war with other nations. Also, there's Kane's Cyborg Army from Command & Conquer: Tiberium Wars.
>>67824420It sounds like a very dangerous world, with no time for the simple pleasures of life.
>>67824531There is time for borger, the truest form of pleasure.
>>67823038Not him but Azur Lane lore is confusing as frick. Hopefully the anime will clarify it next season.
>>67824531For those human beings living in one of the major cities, life is surprisingly comfy, maybe even better than we have it right now. This is where the player lives, so he can get into light-hearted slice-of-life shenanigans with his T-Dolls when they're not in combat. For those out on the frontier in the irradiated zones away from the government's protection, yeah, it's like something out of Fallout or STALKER. We see more of what happens to these sad saps later in the game.
>>67824132>>67824420So DSR-50 *was* a fuckbot. I knew it!
>>67824419Italians are gluttons by nature. Love, food, military defeats. They can’t get enough of them.
>>67824582Borger?>>67824762Sounds like players are part of the privileged classes. They can become even more privileged by spending our world's money on that world, I presume?
>>67824912>BorgerIt’s an intentional misspelling of the word, “Burger,” often used to refer to anime hamburgers that cute girls go all ahaego eating - alternatively, used when referring to cats eating burgers.It’s in the same family of words as “bepis” and “bizza.”
>>67824912The only thing cash gets you are skins, more slots for shit and resources, you're still under the mercy of the RNG while crafting for the dolls you want.
>>67824947>>67824985Ah, as in HAMBAGAH?
>>67825017robit liek hambagah
>>67825017Hangah for hambagah!
>>67825017she wants the burg
>>67825025Does Italibot like pasghetti and merbles?
>>67825135Pastabot drowns herself in Itallian food.
>>67824531I was honestly fucking astounded by the actual depth they put into that game's story and world building. For a waifu collector mobile game, you'd expect the "plot" to be an excuse to dump a bunch of pretty girls on you and make them fight in bikinis over who gets to be your girlfriend first, then occasionally worry about stoping the generic demon lord from conquering the world.GF still has that, it's just that those are a brief, hollow respite from the crushing bitter reality that everything you do is for nothing and that you'll ultimately end up alone with nothing but your most painful memories there to see you to the end- but at least you tried. The wedding dress costume event was literally a depressing cardboard backdrop, and all the descriptions were about how you're idea of romance is just a two dimensional escape form reality.
>>67825320Well they are robots so it's not like they're actually alive or anything.
>>67804614Extremely multipurpose. But the programing is mono-purpose. You can buy additional tasks as DLC.
>>67824072>Collapse Fluid originated from the Derelict civilization.>Collapse Fluid, couple with Reverse Technology, enable for what is essentially transmutation>This technology may have been the foundation of the Derelict civilization's infrastructure>Collapse Fluid turns humans into Shoggoths>Shoggoths were the literal and metaphorical building blocks of the Elder Thing civilization>Conclusion: Collapse was the Derelict civilization's Modus Operandi for assimilating things, living or unliving, into their civilization.>Humanity is being slowly converted into a revival of the Elder Thing civilization, whether the Derelict civilization intended this or not>But can we combat this?>Shoggoths were susceptible to hypnosis>Joy Mutants can be controlled by trumpets>We must teach our T-Dolls how to play the trumpet to hypnotize the ShoggothsGentlemen, you know what you must do
>>67825348Not much different from us, then. After all, we're feral biological robots.
>>67825596We've got just the song for this.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Go_BVF5JJzE
>>67825602>feral biological robotsThe more people repeat this the less it makes sense.
>>67825758Mate, if you can't understand that all life is nothing more than a bunch of organic machines then we can't help you. Though life itself is also a pretty ambiguous concept with no hard definition.
>>67825798>organic machinesThere is no helping YOU.
>>67825815Whatever you say, meatbot.
>>67825602We're not robots. Robots are built for a purpose. We aren't. We're just scraps of what is more likely to happen due to chance, like planets and stars being simple matter squashed together due to gravity.
>>67825990Don't argue with meatbotautist, it's a waste of time.
>>67825623Imagine the absolute madness of a GFL x LISA crossover.>be me, Nern Guan, master orator and the greatest historian of our time>just another day in Olathe>earth is still scorched>mutants are still roaming>women are still gone>wife is still gone, god rest her soul>men are still sad, lonely, and horny>I'm still sad, lonely, and horny>such is life in Olathe>but I'm still here and I'm still alive>and I still have tales to tell>like tales of my wife, god rest her soul>but no one wants to listen>but that's okay>I'll just wait>and wait I do, until someone comes along>"Oh, hello there! My name is Nern.

We have been tasked to reclaim this habitable land in the name of New Soviet Russia."Shit idea?
>>67826087All the men would pledge themselves on the spot just to see a real woman again so there's not much conflict.
>>67806750>>Repurposing whorebots into military androidsIsn't that actually the canon backstory of GF? They call them "civilian T-dolls", but what the fuck would a civilian do with a girlbot except fuck it?
>>67826233Have them work [for free].
>>67826087GF turned a crossover with a game about bartending shenanigans with lolibots and dogs wearing sunglasses into a depressing, bittersweet phyrrhic story about the world ending and having to learn to accept that there's nothing you can do to stop it. God fucking help us if they got their hands on a story like LISA
>>67826233They'd be literally everywhere in the service industry, from receptionists to bartenders to caretakers, sex shit would still be a huge chunk of it but to ignore the value of easily mass-produced cute girls for it is asinine.
>>67824828I can dig it.
>>67826233as mentioned earlier, the human population is a very small fraction of what it used to besure, people probably get horny, but it seems to me like there's so few people around that they build them with the purpose of being surrogate friends and children on top of wives. there might be so few people left that it's difficult to have any social contact otherwise.heck, maybe some of them are made just to populate towns so they don't feel as barren as they are
>>67825134No more hamburgers for the chubby gun until she does another logistics mission.
>>67826365you fool, you're just letting her go out and get more rations for herself
>>67826295Brad Armstrong tears up Joy mutants with his fucking teeth and survives injuries that would have killed any other person a hundred times over. I want to see him wreck ELID mutants that KCCO needs fuckhuge Metal Gears just to fight, and witness the utter abomination that is unleashed upon mankind when he turns into an ELID mutant.
>>67823949>What is the in-universe reason for manufacturing combat-capable gynoids and programming them to think they are the antique weapon type they are using?1. They're civilian androids used to fill in the societal gaps of a massively depopulated earth2. The Etching process is what makes them combat capable.3. Antique weapons are used because (You) are the commander of a fairly poor PMC scraping by on the setting equivalent of technicals and muskets. The other PMC faction uses fancy new guns for their hiveminded Dolls, the actual military doesn't even use Dolls but instead actual robots and railguns and shit, and then there's the spooky xenotech technocult that lives in a melted Antarctica and uses energy weapons and weaponized xenoAIDS zombies
>>67826639meant for>>67826087though, it doesn't make much difference.
>>67826644I admit I sort of didn't pay attention to the story.At all.
>>67826644I understand the whole "you have to use whatever guns you find" thing, but then it feels weird to be using guns that are 100 years past the war they were introduced in and would probably be museum pieces if they don't have the word "Moist Nugget" in their name, alongside insanely expensive things like the WA-2000 and the like.
>>67824419She just likes to eat. SPAS is the fatty
>>67825320Most of the world building was taken from MICA's other game, CODENAME: Bakery Girl. It seems to me that the whole gungirls thing was a contrivance to get money while MICA slowly works the game into the story they actually want to tell.
>>67826084He's not wrong entirely, but human life is even more pointless than robot existence. Not to say humans aren't important, but they certainly don't start WITH a point.
>>67827383The point of a cell is to make more of itself,;what is a man but many cells?
>>67824801The outfit from >>67806750 is LITERALLY called "Highest Bidder" and the damaged art looks like this
>>67824191>And the main helper girl with orange hair is a robot too right?No, Kalina's something far more inhuman. A jew
>>67818510SPAS-12 is cute, and I want to cook her dinner.
>>67827440It's not like she needs it.
>>67825320>the actual depth they put into that game's story and world building.You haven't even scratched the surface. GFL is a long sequel to their previous China-only game Bakery Girl that deals more directly with the Xenotech zombies and the resultant posthuman ubermensch that become Paradeus. It also might have connection to their tower defense game Arknights, but I can't remember.
>>67827459Please don't bully her, she's a good girl.
>>67827516She's a robot, she doesn't need to eat.It's like in the megaman x rpg where the robot is breathing.What's even the point?
>>67823001>missedIt's still going
>>67825348No, but sometimes they wish they were so they could die.
>>67827403>what is a man but many cells?What is a cell but many atoms? Do atoms have a point?>The point of a cell is to make more of itselfThat's not the point of a cell. Cells make more of themselves, but no-one assigned them that task. When the first cellular organism came into being, there was no-one out there saying "cells, your point is to make more of yourself". It's just happenstance that cells make more of themselves, just as it is happenstance that hydrogen gathers together to form stars.Nothing truly matters, and thus the only important things for each of us is what WE say matters.
>>67827573The point is to make lifelike human replacements people can relax around as humanity is slowly going the way of the dodo.
>>67827615>find on/off switch>switch to offWow.
>>67826481I'll just bribe her with pizza. Everyone knows rations don't have pizza in them.
>>67827650Do you die every time you go to sleep?
>>67827687Just don't press the thing back to on and scrap it for beer cans.
>>67827721These girls don't have on or off switches is the thing.
>>67827733Then install one.
>>67827650But then their wages get docked.
>>67827743Sorry bruh, too poor for that.
>>67823787Assuming your AI is benevolent, then it must be pretty stupid to forgo human interface bots. If it only wants to annihilate humans then I guess that is pretty unnecessary.
>>67827743They're uploaded to a cloud.
>>67826233>what the fuck would a civilian do with a girlbot except fuck it?SAT8 worked at various convenience stores.
>>67827071Some of that is sheer suspension of disbelief, but it also has to do with the Etching process in a way that I've forgotten. Essentially, etching gives T-Dolls a leg up on their competition performance wise but as a consequence it doesn't work on modern guns because Reasons.
>>67822697Post it if you have it
>>67827782That's the thing. There are no humans in the setting.
>be living in this post apocalyptic shithole setting>surrounded by robot girls>but they don't have vaginas>no human girls around>all this pent up frustration >be human girl>surrounded by robot girls>where's the cock?!>all this pent up frustration I think I figured out why there's so much depression.
>>67827900>but they don't have vaginasWombforce upgrades are canon, so just pony up the dosh and you too can fuck your robot wife.
>>67827900>but they don't have vaginas>where's the cock?!what's with the assumptions anon
>>67827916Robots. Smooth like a barbie doll unless you pay.
>>67827900I don't. Why do people hype up sex anyway? I've never felt the urge to have sex all my life.
>>67827951Sex is a biological urge, it's why people masturbate when they can't have it.
>>67827913>3 year life>she's still barren>you're pretty much just masturbating but at a premium costLife is pointless.
>>67827962Yeah, I guess I'm defective, then.
>>67827998Yeah, you're lacking a desire that most humans have and leads them into terrible, terrible decisions and situations. What a shame!
>>67827900Put some ketchup on your dick and SPAS will suck it like it's candy.
>>67828015If people didn't have that urge you wouldn't be here. None of us would.
>>67825798If you think “life” is hard to define, have a go at “machine.”I’m still not sure what phrases like “organic machine” actually mean.
>>67828015It must be a betrayal of the genetic imperative, though.Heck, I don't even masturbate, whatever that is.
>>67828041Hopefully we can eventually transition to something a little more sane.
>>67827900robot girls still got fingers
>>67828204This. It's fucking retarded that in men the desire for sex is literally stronger than the desire to live. LITERALLY. As in men will literally die if it means they get to have sex first. Think about it: when was the last time you heard of women catching bullets for men during a mass shooting? During such situations women are more likely to trample a man than help him up, let alone catch a bullet for him.
>>67828263The man only needs to live long enough to impregnate a woman. The woman needs to live long enough to give birth and raise the child. That's where the mindset comes from, I think.
>>67828204I don't think we can, humans still have the instinct to breed.You know what's called the ticking of the biological clock? People have an urge to fuck, to have and raise kids. Because we will die and those instincts ensure the species continues.Nothing short of the mouse paradise will change that, because we aren't that dissimilar to mice in an instinctive level.
The weeb moe-anthro browser "games" were a mistake.
>>67828372I'm having fun and there's nothing you can do about it. It's not as if the existence of gacha somehow degrades your super srs MLG vidya so I don't see what you're upset about.
>>67828372This board was a bigger one
>>67828372>>67828401I will concede that gacha was a mistake, up there with lootboxes. However, weeb moe-anthro browser games are a blessing.
>>67828401Speaking of, that one South Dakota skin everyone's been waiting in comes out tomorrow.
>>67828463I didn't know about it, but it's very nice. South Dakota is a pretty good ship in general too. >>67828447Eh, it's tolerable in Azur Lane. You get more than enough oil, gold and cubes by just playing. The only thing that's really scarce is gems, and even then you get enough for the fundamentals (dock space, academy slots, dorm slots). The only thing you really need to pay for are skins, which are purely cosmetic. It's not Pay to Win, it's Pay to Skin. I can tolerate that.
>>67827900>but they don't have vaginas>implying They did make the artist change it before it got into the game, though.
I sure love Metal Gear Dolls: Electric Cinnamon Buns.
>>67822435X isn't gay, he's just autistic.
>>67828560So the fucking robots buy the womb upgrades themselves then?
>>67828874>womb upgradesWhat do you think this is, Nechronica?
>>67828968That's the penis upgrade.
>>67829082*laughs in nom noms*
>>67828659Fucking Jupiter runs, man.
>Hema T-Doll>We've come half-circle. Now the fucking gun is more alive than the T-Doll herself.>how does the gun get blood for ammunition when T-Dolls don't have blood? Does it just drink coolant, conductive fluid, synthetic blood, or whatever it is that T-Dolls have? That's got to freak everyone out. But hey, it saves on rations and ammunition when you can just use parts and manpower to shoot. Actually, fuck repair costs, Hema just drinks directly from the enemy thanks to life-steal. It's nanomachines, I ain't gotta explain shit.>how would you even use Etching with this? Actually, fuck Etching. Having techno-organic tentacles intrude into your mind and body probably provides a better proficiency with the Hema than any Etching tech.That aside, GFL x LISA may have the potential to be the most heart-wrenching crossover ever, but I think WF x GFL could be pretty trippy.>The closest equivalent to an android in WF are Sentient Mimics. Other than the Sentients, artificial intelligence is crude or relies on uploads of human minds. So everyone in WF might freak out upon meeting a T-Doll.>T-Dolls are androids, very humanlike robots. Anyone from WF might mistake a T-Doll for a human at first. Meanwhile, Warframes are humans made into robots. They have a very robotic, if vaguely organic, appearance and have very little humanity. Seeing what lies inside a Warframe could possibly drive anyone from GFL insane.>Hell, being exposed to the inner workings of almost any Orokin technology would be enough to fuck up any normal person. The Orokin might as well be the Derelict civilization themselves.>Human life in GFL is precious and scarce, while human life in WF is abundant and worthless. The difference between these two mindsets could be another point of contention. The Orokin civilization even treated humans like the humans of GFL treat T-Dolls, toying with their lives and formatting and rewriting their minds as easily as code.

The difficulty is likely to depend on the architecture of the trait. In the near term, human genetic engineering might be reliant on existing alleles, but I suspect that the medium to long term with see the refactoring, removal, or addition of genetic regulatory networks. I believe that it is probably possible to attenuate, alter, remove, or supplant the human sex drive. If so, we could come up with something a little more sensible that serves the same purpose. But I suppose that wouldn’t be very popular; if anything, people would probably opt for accentuated sex drives.

>>67841743>fastforward about a millenia or soI wouldn't. Spoiler, your idea of the future is shaped by present advancements and knowledge, not ideas and knowledge that has yet to be discovered, because it basically can't be. Imagine trying to explain the internet to someone the dark ages without using the word "magic".The real future of AI- and all tech/society in general- isn't going to be cute maidbots that love you unconditionally and floating orbital apartments. It's going to be more esoteric, bizarre, and vaguely unsettling than you can possibly imagine.
>/tg/ is having sane, rational and well meaning discussion on ship girls and sexdolls with guns>meanwhile if you go to the relevant threads in /vg/ its just thousands of posts about cunny and shitposting about how their waifu is better then your waifu>Meanwhile, I just want one of the fucking shipgirl games to have a BB-35 that adequately relates to some degree how a pre- WW1 dreadnought went through 2 world wars with multiple retrofits and was able to retire after WW2 to tell war stories to all the younger ship girlsBut seriously though. Azur Lane does have an interesting take on constructed life. USS Enterprise constantly reflects on if they truly are alive or if they are a slave to their destiny of being weapons of war, and whether or not they have free will if the threat of the Sirens were to suddenly end. But with the most recent event, it looks like there are at least 3 separate timelines. >1) timeline where the sirens overtake the world and are bored and want to enslave other timelines>2) timeline where the shipgirls outlive humanity but continue to survive to fight the Sirens>3) the 'offshoot' timeline where humanity is not only surviving against the sirens, but able to push back some of their onslaughts as they try to wipe out humanity.
I can't wait to fight these guys (or tame them with trumpets).
>>67842530I guess Warspite kinda fits the bill?>Built in 1915>Got a retrofit that allowed her to participate in WW2>Illustrious career, got the longest distance confirmed hit of all ships in WW2>Is nicknamed "Old Lady">Appears to speak in a very old-fashioned manner (I don't know Moon so I'm not sure if this is actually true or notI also like the idea of her being Queen Elizabeth's (ship) personal attendant of sorts.QE in general is a great ship. It's a so-so battleship but the bonus to all HMS ships is amazing.
>>67843372The thing is that Texas was built as a dreadnought, retrofitted to have AA and act as an artillary ship. I want Texas to be a salty, foul mouthed girl but always speaks honestly and wisely. While Alabama is roaring to go and 'spins up' to shoot faster, but always polite, Texas should be a haggardly ship with a heavy punch with a long range. Almost like Jean Bart. Maybe give Texas a bonus that whenever other ships sink, it makes her hit harder. She might not like what she has to do but always does it because thats what the mission calls for.Like during the D-Day invasion, the Texas purposely took on water to cause her to tilt so she could have a better firing angle to support the ground operations.Dont get me wrong, I certainly like Warspite, but I think Texas would be better being almost an antagonist to Enterprise. Enterprise would give mission breifings, and Texas could shoot holes in the plan because enemy intel is always wrong and that they should change their tactics for the operation. Be less 'by the books' and operate more in the chaos. Sirens know how the forces of Azur Lane operate because of other timelines. What makes the 'our' timeline different is that they are willing to eschew standard tactics to adapt to the situation.

>>67843868The gun there is the Stg. 44, or the Sturmgewher 1944, which was the worlds first assault rifle designed by the Nazi's. Fun fact- since Hitler thought he was an expert on everything, he personally nixed the assault rifle program because he thought it was retarded- so Nazi scientists developed it in secret because they understood you needed a gun between a battle rifle and a sub-machine-gun. They ended up showing the final product to Hitler for his blessing, and he was really impressed, and was the one who came up with the name sturmgweher, or Storm Rifle.

>>67824039>>67809713>event-only charactersi understand this for crossovers, but it sucks either way. why do gacha games do this? so gambling addicts FOMO and buy extra currency? it's ridiculous and consumer unfriendly.
>>67844395Does being consumer friendly make them more money than fucking over consumers? There's your answer.
>>67844395Dude, the whole gacha model is consumer unfriendly, also exclusives let your retarded playerbase lord their limited shit over people who don't have that limited shit.
>>67844395Regular event dolls come in rotations. You can still get them in later events. There's also mini-events that give them as rewards sometimes.
>>67844395>hey, you can try to get this character, but dont worry if you dont because she'll be around for as long as the game is so you'll have plenty of opportunitiesvs.>YOU SEE THAT CUTE GIRL RIGHT SHE'S FUCKING HOT WELL GUESS WHAT DIPSHIT SHE'S GONNA BE GONE IN A WEEK, START BUYING ROLLS IN CASE YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH POORFAG
>>67844395Well, there's good and bad gacha games. I've been Azur Lane for a few months now, missed the Cherzo of Blood and Iron event. However, during both the French and recent American events I was able to get all of the exclusive ships by only playing a few hours a day. You can easily play Azur Lane without shelling out shekels for it. The only thing you really need gems for (other than the essentials like dorm/dock/academy space, for which the game already provides you with sufficient gems) are skins of your favorite bote. So if you want to see her in a schoolgirl outfit or a bikini, that's when you pay money. Also these exclusive events rotate, so if you miss it then it'll be back in about a year or less. AL is pretty forgiving.
>>67844395>why do gacha games do this? so gambling addicts FOMO and buy extra currency?Yes and no. Part of the reason they do short event periods is so they can limit the summoning pool, and also rotate to new releases faster.If you play other gacha games like say FFBE, its incredibly frustrating when you go to pull and your rares are non-event rares, and often times when you pull 5* (or in comparison to azure lane, SR ships) you are pulling on pretty much every single 5*/SR released in the entire game. By rotating out summoning pools to events, it prevents you from pulling ships that arent relevant or from previous events. But the downside is that if you missed those events, you cant get them until the event gets a replay. which can be awhile sometimes. I play both FFBE and AL, and I gotta say I appreciate AL limited summoning pool over FFBE's 2k+ summon pool. its incredibly frustrating getting off banner 5* characters that haven been relevant in 2 years. that and usually AL you usually have a pretty good chance of getting all bi-monthly event ships without spending any money as wisdom cubes and resources are usually pretty easy to earn and acquire through daily objectives as long as you arent a brand new player.

>>67839408I want to see a crossover with Aliens so we could see the Pulse Rifle and Smartgun.
>>67844599Can't Gachas just have their summons sorted into roughly equal sized pools you can choose from? That way every summon is always available to pull, but your chances of pulling a particular summon is never diluted by the addition of new content. Alternatively, give us a guaranteed pick of one summon after a particular number of summons. Or would that be too good and ruin the business model?
>>67844175Did somebody say NAZI GUNS?!>>67843868No clue on the artist, but the fucknugget is G41. Who the artist literally calls "kind of a fucknugget" in his design notes. Also fun is that he has no idea what kind of kemomimi she is, he was just horny as hell so he wanted to draw a lewd kemomimi loli.
>>67846139>Alternatively, give us a guaranteed pick of one summon after a particular number of summons. Or would that be too good and ruin the business model?This is technically required by law in any number of games released in China, that there must be some kind of way to obtain specific rewards regardless of luck. However, the requirements implemented in these games are usually so insanely high that it's even harder than luckshitting it anyway. See: Fate/Grand Order requiring you to summon 5 duplicate five star servants to get one.
>>67845117>>still no Half Life reference skin for SPAS-12Have you not noticed the crowbar she keeps in her shield? See >>67829103
>>67846139>Alternatively, give us a guaranteed pick of one summon after a particular number of summons.Arknights, their TD mobage, has a guaranteed random high rarity after X amount of pulls. As for GFL, they have various events (one of which is currently underway on the China servers) in which if you complete the event you get what they call a True Core Mask which you can turn in for the exact 5 star gun you want from a selection. The grinding for temporary drop guns is also not that awful to be quite honest
>>67824420>They show up later in the game and kick everyone's shit in.How powerful are we talking with the actual military stuff? The Jupiter Cannons seemed to be implied to be actual military tech.
>>67831877Pretty sure it's implied that some of the T-doll neural clouds are derived from human brain scans (or transplanted/copied scans).
>>67846139>summons sorted into roughly equal sized pools you can choose fromsome games split the event reward pool off from the main pool but those games aren't as popular. i wonder why
>>67846306In the latest event they have a plasma cannon and a murder train.
>>67846139>Can't Gachas just have their summons sorted into roughly equal sized pools you can choose from?I mean, GFL has recipes you can use to narrow down potential pulls, as well as rate up events to drain all your resources increase your chances of getting high rarity drops new and old
>>67827071 >>67827862From what I understand, the Etching process and Imprint process (a.k.a. ASST Tech from Persica's personal projects) allows "a bond to form between objects". To put it in cyberpunk terms, it's a Smartlink weapon, but without the requirement of the weapon being embedded with Smartlink tech. The user (i.e. the T-doll) gains an instinctive sense for the properties and state of their imprinted weapon.But the process can't be forced for the user. So when I.O.P. rolls out a new T-doll mainframe unit, they try out a bunch of different imprints (as shown in the Cube/Cube+ event) in an attempt to find something with a high sync rate between weapon and user. The specs of the user also has an impact, as "heavier" or more complex weapons seem to require higher specs - UMP45 was assigned her weapon after failing a ton of other weapons. It was thought that her specs or neural cloud were shit, but in truth a lot of her systems had been reserved for a cyber warfare module which prevented imprinting of "stronger" weapons. This system allocation also reduced her initial combat efficiency.
>>67845137Guess you missed glados being in CN then.>>67848001Its basically a metal slug boss.
>>67848551I didn't know you were still around, Crix.
>>67827071>>67827862I remember reading somewhere that it was illegal for anyone other than the government's military to own any weapon above a certain threshold of firepower. That would exclude any weapon built within the last 50 years of the game's timeline, and then some, from being in the hands of any civilians or private military contractors. It's to reduce the chance of a civilian or T-Doll revolt, or something. So legitimate groups like G&K have to put up with the bullshit of being limited antique rifles, while terrorist groups like Sangvis Ferri don't give a shit.
>>67848718So what do G&K Dolls have in their favor?
>>67848725They're smart and capable of a lot of growth in skills. SF dolls are much less adaptable and outside of the specialists, have not really shown any initiative.
>>67848758Not to mention, the upper level SF dolls all have serious issues working together. When one lieutenant decides that turning another into a robo-dog is just good fun, your organization has problems.
>>67846306The Jupiter Cannons are cheap knockoffs of KCCO's Typhon Cannons. SF can hardly scratch KCCO's armored units, while KCCO just blows SF out of the water.And the scary part is that for all of KCCO's military might, they still get BTFO by ELID mutants. Eurosky Low-emission Infectious Disease converts humans beings into silicon-based life-forms with skin that hardens over time, to the point of being bullet-proof in mere hours and utterly invulnerable if left alone for more than a few years. Their muscles density also increases, to the point that they can rip through tanks. But the worst part is the radiation. ELID spreads by radiation, and those immune to the disease still have to worry, because the radiation emitted by late-stage victims is strong enough to damage T-Dolls and military equipment.
>>67848664Of course. Don't really post often though, and in a different time zone.
>>67848978There's also the fact that the Mastermind, Elisa, is effectively a scared confused angry petulant child of an AI lashing out against humanity because her programmer dad died just before she was born. Not only do all the Ringleaders have issues, they're not even sure why they're fighting.
>>67848725SF dolls are slaved to central minds a la Trade Federation whereas Griffon Dolls are individuals capable of adapting to the situation [or ripping off their own arm and a faulty eye to replace it with scavenged SF parts from the SF Dolls they dismantled by hand for fun
