This is fantastic news for the Tesla museum. Elon Musk is donating to help with the completion of the museum.

I learned the hard way. Don't spray paint 75rnd mags. 
The devs said they will have this fixed in the next patch which is this Wednesday I think

Yeah, if you surrounded every military building with more zombies than any single person could ever successfully overcome, for example. Imagine if you had to have someone to distract the zombies, someone to sneak past and grab the loot and others to help if things go pear shaped. There's still the trust issue, like is the looter going to come back with the goods, or will the distraction team get eaten by mistake, or trapped in a building or just get carried away leading zombies and waltz off into the sunset, pied piper style?
Until team work is necessary, players will just KOS.

Last night i encountered a new hack. this hack started appearing within a week. This hack allows the hacker the ability to remotely force target players (or all players) to drop any or all their items. Those items can then be reported to the hacker. I imagine this one could easily be game breaking.  If anyone else encountered this before or has additional information please post on the feedback issue.

I've been hack robbed and killed as well while completely isolated. It strikes me that the hackers are working harder on this game than the developpers. Enough with the hats and drinking animations and get to work on shutting down the teleport scripters and loot thief hackers. It is becoming as bad as COD.

in the glossary last page:
"Valve Activities—You will learn to love blacksmithing" does this imply they learn/do blacksmithing/metal working at valve, or ?

I have been making some stamps and cookie cutters for some people who do ceramics and recently one of them asked me if I could make a rubber stamp to stamp ink onto paper. Would this be possible with something like ninjaflex? has anyone tried anything like this? 

I was thinking I could either use some sort of rubbery filament and print with that, however the tool path may be visible on the ink when stamped for any solid fill areas. the only other option I can think of is to print a negative and use it as a mold to cast some sort of rubber. The tool path may still show up.

+Christopher Benjamins  Yes, the supports will be short and it does not matter if the stamp that does not touch is rough from the support removal.

So what do you all do with your failed prints? Please specify what kind of plastic.

So far I have just been saving them in buckets, originally planning to eventually make a filament extruder, but resent discussions in the community makes it seem like it may not be worth it for me, at least not anytime soon. So right now I'm not sure if I should continue saving it, or dispose of it, and if that, how?

General Discussion  - 
 
Last night i watched How to Train your Dragon 2 and really enjoyed it. I loved the armor design hiccup had and after seeing the movie I knew I wanted to make it as my next costume. I wont be able to start working on it for a while though due to time and financial limitations but I will as soon as I can. In the mean time I will be working on the design and sketching it out. 

The biggest challenge so far that I will face I think is the pegleg.  At first I wasn't sure how I would be able to pull it off without making it look awkward and keeping it relatively comfortable. At first I thought I may be better off ignoring that he lost his leg and just have the second boot, but after thinking about it some more and looking at some renderings of him and his leg I think I have a solution. 

The peg leg is bulky enough up to the foot part, where the foot is wide and open. The idea is that I will wear a black sock, or thin black shore on my foot to hide it and build the actual prop around that. I shouldnt have to widen or deform the pegleg too much from its original to get that to fit in theory. The only other alternative I can think of is to bend my leg and attach the pegleg prop to my knee and walk with my upper leg and foot tied behind me which would make the costume look weird from the back, as well as it could potentially be very uncomfortable. I am open for any other ideas. 

For materials I plan on mainly using cardboard, EVA foam, leather(maybe) some 3d printed parts for the details and fin mechanics on his back. I have worked with foam before and a little bit of cardboard but not leather. I don't know how hard it is to work with leather and how expensive that may be so that may not use much of it at all.
