It is a reasonable question. I thought the plant as the 'slug' is just too simple and we're talking phantasmagoria here.

Also, I have no knowledge of 3D print advances save some snippets on TV so humour me please.

@ phantasmagoria, if it is the green plant, is it done in one piece? Κracus thought "....a bunch of hoses stuck together."

Phant literally said the pot is made out of cement and he got the plant from some sort of plant subscription.

OK, thank you Eraser for the answer. Being phantasmagoria, I thought the greenery, complex as it is. Silly me :smirk:

Intricate 3D prints are about so I thought the plant. Apologies.....

:) I've been taking year+ long breaks ever since I started quaking. Beginning of covid was a great time to start getting back into it. Moving in with gf and kids tomorrow, so quake time may have to wait a while. But I got tonnes more auto-recorded demos between then and now - planning on making some highlight videos, and happy to share here if you guys want.

Re: What is new in your little world, finished Christmas shopping yesterday and booked our escape for a Christmas getaway? Three days in a luxury lofty tree-house with heaps of extras thrown in, returning home on the 26th to open more presents.

Only the peasants, and mongoloids who are now akin to antivaxxers and 5g theorists.
The rest of the country grew the fuck up.

Basically what MKJ said. A lot has changed in the past few years and most people really don't care about the character's facial color anymore. So the way it's most commonly portrayed now is with a "normal" skin color but a few black streaks which is supposed to be soot from the chimneys Petes supposedly climb in.

The thing is that there are people all across the spectrum ranging from "get rid of the character altogether" all the way to "don't change a thing from his traditional look". The consensus is slowly moving towards the first, but I don't think it'll ever get all the way there. Seems unnecessary to me as well. Trouble is, people at either extreme end of the spectrum are the most vocal and will do the most extreme things.

I just think it's funny that people are really opposed to changing Pete's appearance and skin color because , as they say, it cannot be explained to children if Pete's no longer black. So we have this make-believe version of a person who's hundreds of years old, lives in Spain and travels by steam boat filled with presents to the Netherlands once a year to climb on roofs, slide down chimneys and put presents in the (well secured by home security) shoes of children all over the country but when the skin color of his assistant Pete is changed, suddenly the whole thing supposedly collapses.

There's similar stuff going on here in the States with football team names and mascots. A lot of melodrama about the Redskins getting a new name. Supposedly it's ruining all of football if you can't do a tomahawk chop when your team scores.

Just before it gets away from Jerry; where he said 'normsl skin color' he meant whatever the skin color of the person playing the character has.

old b&w photos of coal miners have been removed from the walls of pubs because their coaldust-smeared faces reminded someone of blackface

and by 'someone' i mean 'a witless shitgoblin' :|

lol, I had the idea that a lot of white dutchies still oppose the idea of a "natural"-coloured skin Pete, but I guess I have too many conservative, slightly racist (but don't know or realize it) "friends" on my facial book. "IT IS RUINING THIS CHILDREN'

The most ironic thing is that even Blackface isn't tolerable in a thoroughly racist country like the USA.

Depends where you look I guess. I wouldn't be surprised opposition of roetveegpiet is a lot stronger in de Achterhoek than in de Randstad.
