I am making a Christmas pack and I wanted to make a 3D bed with a hat on it, I made it, and the bed itself looks good, but the hat is not working or is showing the "unknown texture" texture (purple and black texture). What do I do in this situation?
Any help is greatly appreciated!

“Dude, you what?!” Jeff yelled.
“I know, you told me not to, but I did anyway, okay?” I answered frankly. “I’m sorry.”
Jeff sighed, as he began to pace about his small shed, running his hand through his stringy hair then clasped his face into it.
“I’m gonna get in so much trouble,” he moaned.
“Why?” I asked.
“I was told if I shared the program with anyone else, then Uncle Chris would have to take it away, or maybe even worse, they could fire me. I gave him my word. And now… this shit happens.”
Only then did I feel bad for Jeff at this very moment. But how did we know if it really meant anything beyond what it was?
“I mean, you see it now, what do you think? Does it seem legit?”
“Uh, everything it makes seems legit!” Jeff exclaimed. “That’s the point. It’s gonna do whatever it takes to replicate authenticity.”
He had every right to be upset. I’d have to be patient with him, but also, we needed to figure out the next plan of action.
“What are we supposed to do?” I asked.
Jeff replied, still anxious, “I don’t fucking know, okay?! I’m… still trying to figure this shit out myself. I haven’t been using it that long. My knowledge of it is only limited to what I’ve told you and the others. You all know as much as I do now.”
“Why else would it generate that?” I said. “Their faces. It took those pictures I gave of them and used them for a memoriam. That’s too specific. Amy and Kelly are alive and well, and so are-”
I stopped myself before saying anything else, but I was already caught slipping as Jeff eyed me down like a hawk.
“So are who?” he interrogated.
“Uh…” I dumbly spoke.
“So are who?!”
I sighed, admitting defeat at this moment. “You and Miles… also disappear from the show,” I quietly answered.
Jeff’s eyes became transfixed with the words, a mix between what I imagined were either fear or utter shock at the new information. He took a seat back down at the desk, staring blankly at the monitor before him.
“If it helps, I don’t know for sure that it’s true,” I clarified. “I didn’t see a memorial for the two of you. Not that I saw.”
“Not that you saw…” Jeff muttered.
“Jeff, look, we don’t know what any of this means yet - if anything. I-I mean, it could just be nothing more than what it is. Like you said, it just replicates the most realistic outcome for a medium production. Maybe… that was the most realistic replication for what would happen if...”
“What, if Amy and Kelly were actresses?” Jeff finished my thoughts for me. “That if we were all somehow the cast of your hit comedy series, we’d all be cursed?”
He had a point. It sounded even stranger when hearing it said aloud back to me.
“Think about it,” Jeff went on. “Nothing weird like this happened until you decided to do whatever you wanted and say F the rules. It was all fine and dandy before, right? Now all of a sudden, Neptune feels like killing all of us off - hell, everyone but you?”
And the worst part of it all is that we had no way of finding out why through normal means such as the internet. I couldn’t search the names of anyone involved with Chaos TV! because, well, they didn’t exist. At least, not in the world Neptune’s created for them.
“The only person who could have any possible of explanation is the person who developed Neptune,” Jeff stated.
“Who’s that?” I asked.
“I don’t know. But I can ask my uncle. Are there any more episodes left?”
I shook my head. “No, it wouldn’t let me go past season six,” I answered. “It said something about a ‘continuity error.’ I don’t understand what it means.”
Jeff looked at me narrow-eyed, now as confused as I was.
“That's… odd,” he simply said. “A continuity error only happens if - well, it quite literally is in the word - if something in the timeline of the show doesn’t add up to what’s previously occurred.”
“Like a plothole,” I acknowledged.
“Right. So at what point did Amy and Kelly get cut from the show?”
“Uh, I think it was just at the start of the third season - no, fourth season. Their names were never mentioned again, there was no explanation at any point from either one of us as to why. They were just replaced with two other girls.”
“Two other girls?”
“Yeah. Jenna and Beatrice. I think one of them looks vaguely familiar, like she was on a Nickelodeon show at some point, maybe even Disney. So one’s a legit actress - Jenna is - and maybe the other is, too.”
“What did you see her on before?”
I shrugged. “No clue, maybe Boys from Mars? I don’t know.”
That was a popular children’s sitcom that used to air new episodes every Saturday morning but has long since been cancelled. I, personally, never watched an episode.
“The shitty part is that he's not even credited," I continued. "Like, anywhere. He's not on the opening credits with the five of us and he's not on the closing credits. It doesn't make sense. I can’t just find out anything by just a quick search, either. I can’t search for something that doesn't exist.”
“There’s gotta be a way…” Jeff uttered.
We decided to have everybody meet up at the shed at once like before, Jeff and I struggling to put into words just how we were going to explain it all in a way that didn’t make us seem crazy. Jeff opened Neptune on his computer and had me log in to my profile. They were all password-protected.
“Let’s see what perverted creations you’ve been watching, Anthony,” Miles teased.
“Are you sure you’re not projecting?” I shot back, to which he just laughed.
“I’d tell you all what I watched, no shame in that.”
“Why, then tell us, Mr. Awesome,” Kelly pried.
“Guys, not right now,” Jeff dismissed. “This is important.”
“O…kay,” Miles concurred.
I went ahead to try and ease them into the situation as much as possible. Though, the outcome was to still be expected. Who wouldn’t freak out by seeing what I did?
“Let me just give a quick rundown of what it is we’re about to see,” I started timidly, stammering over some of my words. “I… basically made a TV show starring us.”
Amy nodded, amused. “Cool,” she said. “What’s it about?”
“The premise is sort of like Friends, you know, that type of sitcom, except we all live in Seattle.”
“So, it’s not very funny, I’m guessing?” Miles joked.
“Don’t diss Friends like that,” Amy argued.
“I mean, if you don’t like to laugh-”
“Anywho,” I interrupted, “In the show, around season four, Amy and Kelly” - I looked at them - “get randomly cut from the show for no apparent reason. I kept on watching to see if I maybe missed something in earlier episodes explaining that they’d be leaving or maybe the both of you were moving away someplace else in the story, but no, nothing like that. The same thing happened in season six, where Miles and Jeff were also gone from the show.”
I could see that Miles was now starting to get more serious at the matter at hand. He still had no idea yet...
“I’ll show you guys just a few episodes so you can see what I’m talking about, and then… I’ll show you the last things you need to see,” I said with a foreboding tone.
We watched through the pilot as well as a couple others in season one, then moved onto the finale of season two, that way they could see for themselves how random it was for Amy and Kelly to get pulled from the show.
“Wow, Anthony, you’re kind of a terrible actor, lowkey,” Miles commented.
“Thanks for that, I really appreciate it,” I passively responded.
Inevitably, the finale of season three would have come next. They needed to know…
I couldn’t watch. It was hard enough to have Amy and Kelly watch in horror and disbelief at their own faces being displayed, and the haunting words above their pictures.
In loving memory…
“What the fuck?!” Kelly shouted, looking straight at me. Amy was speechless, maybe slightly more confused than she was horrified.
“I didn’t make it do that,” I assured.
“Then who?” Kelly pressed. “It just randomly made that up?”
“Yes,” Jeff and I said simultaneously.
“But not randomly,” Jeff spoke by himself. “There has to be a reason why.”
“What fucking reason would it have?!” Kelly cried.
Miles put his arm around her shoulder. “Hey, hey, take it easy, it’s okay,” he tried calming her down. “Listen, it’s not real, okay? It’s not real. You’re fine. Okay? You’re here.”
Kelly looked at him, listened to his words, and with a few deep breaths, she was calm again. Then Miles proposed his own theory.
“Now, if this is true,” he started. “Or, as true as true means to this thing,” he pointed at the computer, “Does that mean the same thing happens to me and Jeff? You said we get cut from the show, too, right?”
Jeff and I exchanged brief glances before giving a slow, regretful nod. Miles shook his head, not laughing this time.
“We’re not exactly sure, but…” I started, then trailed off, unable to finish my sentence.
“I don’t wanna see mine,” he gave a sturdy reply.
“That’s fine,” I said.
Jeff then spoke up. “The real issue at hand now comes down to one of the most important rules - the important rule - being broken, that I could’ve sworn I looked everyone directly in the eye when I said to them, ‘do not, by any means, upload personal information.’ Do you guys remember when I said that?” We each nodded. “Yeah, I thought so, too. Now, since one person broke the rule, and I’m already gonna be in deep shit as it is for sharing the program with anyone else, I now have to ask… did anyone else upload themselves or anyone else’s information into the Cloud?”
A couple of seconds passed, and I saw no hands go up. Then, slowly and reluctantly, like a timid child being caught with something, Amy raised her hand.
“Really, Amy?” Jeff said, rubbing his fingers through his hair.
“I’m sorry,” Amy replied, sounding just how I did the moment I first confessed.
“Did you make a wacky, cursed comedy series out of us, too?” Jeff asked.
“No,” she answered honestly. “I was thinking about it, but I didn’t. I… did use myself, though.”
I sighed, looking at Jeff. “Well, that’ll do it, I think,” I said.
“How much did you upload in the Cloud?” Jeff questioned.
Amy tilted her head. “Enough?” she answered. “Like, pictures, home videos, birth certificate-”
“Oh damn,” Jeff groaned.
“-clips of me goofing off in class and band practice, just all sorts of things.”
“Well, a birth certificate’s as enough as it gets, I’d say,” Jeff remarked. “God, did anyone else here use personal data?”
Miles and Kelly looked at each other, shaking their heads in agreement and acknowledging that neither of them broke the rule.
“You promise?” Jeff glared at them.
“Swear, man,” Miles sincerely answered.
“Promise,” Kelly nodded.
That left it down to Amy and myself as the culprits. She must’ve felt the same way I did, not wanting to be tied down to the simplicity and limits of the program at the cost of bending the rules, with neither of us yet realizing the repercussions of our mistake.
“My question is,” I started, “Do any of you guys know who the hell Frank is? The guy in the first season?” From the look one anyone’s face, nothing. “I don’t know who he is or where he came from, but I didn’t understand that part. That was the first weird thing the Neptune program did. It added a stranger to our group. None of you know him at all? He’s not mutual or anything?”
Miles shook his head. “Nah, never heard of him,” he said.
“I’ve known a couple of Franks in my life, but not him,” Kelly noted.
“I mean, it’s your show,” Miles argued, directing his attention at me.
“But that’s the thing, I never gave it a script,” I defended. “I just gave it a simple premise and had it reference two shows to go off of for the feel of it. It did the rest by itself.”
“What shows did you use?” Amy asked.
“Living Single, Friends and iCarly,” I answered.
Amy thought for a sec. “I don’t think there was ever a Frank in either of those. Well no, there was a guy named Frank that appeared in a couple of episodes in Friends. Phoebe’s brother or something? But he definitely wasn’t that guy. I don’t know who that is in our show. And I don’t remember a Frank in iCarly or the other one, but I’d have to verify that.”
Jeff then let out another of many previous heavy, stressful sighs uttered this afternoon.
“I have to go to the guy who coded the software,” Jeff declared.
“No, we have to go the guy who coded the software,” Kelly corrected.
“No, I’m already in trouble as it is, and bringing you guys along just proves that I shared the program with others without permission.”
Kelly scoffed. “Well, Jeff, then you shouldn’t have shown us in the first fucking place, huh? But you didn’t do that, did you? Now here we are. Now Anthony and Amy went ahead and fucked up the rules, too. Oh well! Don’t just put this on us. I don’t give a shit what’s gonna happen with repercussions or whatever right now, all I wanna know is why the fuck my obituary is getting plastered on the screen for no fucking reason!”
“All right, all right,” Miles stepped back in to calm Kelly down.
“Okay, fine, we are going to meet with the developer to find out what they know and whatever they can tell us,” Jeff agreed.
Jeff’s Uncle Chris gave him the inside information on who, what, and where Neptune was developed and tested in its early stages. At this time, most importantly, having a sitdown with the ‘who’ led us to Medium Tech’s testing labs on the lower-level. It was a nice floor, having a comfy lounge area with snacks and drinks, as well as several arcade machines such as pinball and other Namco classics for passing the time.
Uncle Chris pulled some strings and allowed us to have restricted access into the lab areas, as long as we left our cellphones and smartwatches at the door in an enclosed locker area. No electronics of the sort were permitted past that point. We walked down long greyish blue corridors until we were met with a room containing countless monitors and what I assumed were large databases the size of bookshelves. With her back turned to us, a woman sat in front of her workspace consisting of a dozen monitors with intricate strands of code I wouldn’t even know where to begin trying to understand.
“Are those my visitors?” she asked, her attention still fixed on the screens before her, typing randomly at the speed of light.
“Yeah, Jeff Steinback?” Jeff replied.
“Bingo,” the woman said.
To the side, Kelly whispered to us, amusedly, “Okay. A woman was behind all this?”
It was pretty extraordinary, I’ll admit. I knew there were plenty of female coders out in the IT world, but it’s not too often you see some of them get credit for being behind some of the world’s greatest innovations. The woman, looking to be just about our age, turned her chair to greet us. She wore a sleek pair of black cat eye-frame lenses over her face, really exaggerating her features while also complimenting her rounder face.
“Felicity Haughton,” she introduced herself. “But everyone just calls me Fe.”
She pronounced it ‘fee,’ like paying a fee for something.
Jeff nodded. “Nice to meet you in person, finally.”
“Likewise,” she returned. Though, it sounded half-genuine.
Fe then glanced around at the rest of us, eyeing us up and down, left and right.
“So, how many of them did you share the program with?” Fe got straight to the point, throwing Jeff for a loop.
“Uh… how did you-”
“I already know you did.”
“Um… all of them?”
“Ha!” Fe laughed. “I really didn’t know! I just wanted to see if you’d tell on yourself for me, and you took the bait! Wow, really Jeff?!”
“Please don’t tell my uncle.”
Fe smiled, then sent a maniacal smirk his way. “Tell me why you and the Mystery Machine gang are here, then I’ll decide what to do with you, okay?” Fe suggested.
Jeff rolled his eyes, but then pulled out the small flash drive from his coat pocket, handing it over to her.
“There’s a show that Anthony” - Jeff tilted his head over to me - “created in Neptune, starring us, by using whatever personal information he has of us, and it made six seasons of this sitcom, but for whatever reason, everyone but him is disappearing from the show, for good! Turns out the reason why is because… we’re dead. Not in the show, but off-screen somehow. Our actors' bodies are dying and we don’t know why.”
Fe grew wide-eyed, taking the information in at once and trying to make sense of what the hell Jeff just told her. It was the truth, as ridiculous as it sounded.
“Wow,” Fe said.
“And there’s another person added to the show - Frank - in the first season as a series regular, but neither of us have a clue who it is,” I included. "And he's nowhere in the credits, so we have nothing on him."
“So, you’re the one who added PII?” she pointed at me.
“Me too,” Amy jumped in.
“Mm-hmm,” Fe nodded, unsure if she sounded upset or not. “Well, that violates rule numero uno big time. Rule numero uno being, ‘DON’T USE PERSONAL INFORMATION.’”
Jeff nodded in shame. “Yes.”
“The thing I don’t get, however, is… why are you telling me this?”
It certainly wasn’t the question we were expecting to come from her mouth.
“Like, you all could’ve literally gotten away with it and I wouldn’t know,” she added. “So… why admit it now?”
“Because we have to know why it’s doing this,” Jeff explained. “I don’t have an explanation for it, and really, I only know just about as much as I’ve told them. If anyone can understand the reason for it, it’s you.”
“Look, I’m not trying to sound arrogant when I say this - like, at all - but I will say that most of my products, even in their beta or prototype phases, typically have little to no bugs whatsoever. So, I’m almost certain that the code is flawless.”
“Well, could you check?” Kelly impatiently spoke.
“Of course I’ll check. But I need to know, before Anthony and Amy here decided to upload personal data into the Cloud, did anyone else have any strange experiences using Neptune?”
Everyone shook their heads.
“As I expected,” Fe went on. “And when you all created your profiles, which user experience did you choose, specifically Anthony and Amy? Was it Confined Reality mode or Chaos mode?”
Oh shit, I thought to myself. I completely forgot about those two options at the very beginning during my initial setup.
“The first one,” I answered. “CR mode.”
“And what did you pick?” Fe looked to Amy.
“Chaos mode,” she answered.
“Okay,” Fe nodded. “That’s good.”
“How is that good?” Miles asked.
“Well, I’m not sure how well Jeff explained the two to you guys, but what it all comes down to is that CR mode - confined reality mode - does literally what it says. It treats every medium that’s created to a user profile as exact and coexisting in the same established ‘world’, if that makes sense, confined only to that specific reality. In other words, if you add a movie or series that you want generated, and say one of the actors gets - I don’t know - a DUI or gets charged for a felony assault, or something crazy like that, obviously, that’s gonna the show’s production schedule, and in turn, affect a character’s future on that particular project, right? It happens all the time. Actresses get pregnant, deaths in the family occur, contractual agreements and other legal matters might get in the way, you know, just life happens sometimes. A character’s long-term presence on the show isn’t always guaranteed.”
“This is too trippy for me,” Miles uttered. “I feel like that’s crossing the lines into more… I don’t know, parallel universes-type shit. It’s just a little too-”
“Unreal?” Fe said. “Yes, that's what makes it special... aaaand also why it’s still being tested and not yet available for the public.”
“So where does us dying come into play?” Kelly asked.
“That’s where I was getting at. Basically, you, your actor self inside of Neptune, can also have an off-screen life apart from whatever it’s starring in, based on what information it can use.”
“What, like their own conscious thoughts?”
“Yes and no. It’s really weird to explain, but it’s sort of like that. Neptune can generate other external factors that affect your actor body’s personal life - inside of the Neptune software, like the things I just listed. You know, life struggles. Whatever the confines of whichever reality you gave it, a.k.a. ‘real life’, in this case, then that’s what Neptune has to take into account whenever it generates a new medium.”
“Wait, I am so confused,” Miles rubbed his head that was now hurting from overthinking.
“You’re saying…” I started, “the circumstances in my current life in the real world could be totally different in Neptune? If it so chooses to generate a different outcome.”
Fe nodded. “Exactly. It’s programmed to simulate what it thinks is the most accurate and effective depiction of a particular medium.”
On the contrary, Amy caught on rather fast, but had some doubts.
“That doesn’t make sense, though,” Amy spoke. “If a person dies - in Neptune - then they can’t star in any new mediums?”
“Right, in his case,” Fe said, gesturing to me.
“But how’s that true when I’ve had other long-dead actors star in a couple of my movies?”
“What do you mean?” Jeff asked.
A bashful demeanor fell over Amy’s face as her cheeks flushed red.
“I… had Neptune generate some rom coms of me paired with James Dean and Paul Newman,” she guiltily admitted.
Some of us did our best not to laugh, but Miles didn’t give a damn, as Kelly had to smack him on the arm to be quiet.
“What, like you haven’t used Marilyn Monroe in your mediums?” Amy retorted.
“Who knows?” Miles shrugged.
“Okay, so that’s where things also get a bit tricky,” Fe started.
She then turned her chair back to face the computer screens in front of her, and they began changing into several different layouts as they followed her keystrokes and various commands. On one of the larger monitors, a layout of two squares labeled ‘Confined Reality (CR)’ and ‘Chaos’ stood side-by-side. Fe clicked with her mouse, and this prompted a single line to protrude from the bottom line of both textboxes. It was a powerpoint.
“This first line,” Fe began, motioning over the line with the mouse cursor, “is basically where ‘reality’ for the program begins. Everything at this point when you first create your profile and create your first medium is assumed to be the ‘beginning’ of everything. So, if you want Marilyn Monroe to be a star in today’s pop culture, or to star in a recent film that came out, say, last year, then that’s where Marilyn exists, starting in last year’s Hollywood climate. As far as we know, Marilyn didn’t start in the 50s or 60s, she started in our time, so it makes sense for her to still be alive.”
She clicked again. On the ‘Confined Reality’ box, the line grew another box at the end of it, then spouted into another straight line forming a third box at the end, and so on. The ‘Chaos’ box, however, spouted multiple diagonal lines shooting in all sorts of directions, growing multiple boxes at the ends and spouting their own boxes at the ends. Some space away from the original ‘Chaos’ textbox drew another box on its own, following the same pattern as the first one with its own unique pattern.
“In Chaos mode, none of that matters at all,” Fe explained. “Marilyn can exist in whatever medium I choose for Neptune to cast her in. She can be in an old black-and-white flick, or a 4K production in the best quality made this year. There’s more freedom and wiggle room to play with different possibilities. None of the ‘realities’ intersect or have to be taken into consideration when making a new medium. Whatever happens off-screen in Neptune doesn’t matter.”
“So I picked the wrong one?” I said.
“Well, that’s not the thing you did that was ‘wrong’, per se, but it’s not exactly working in our favor now,” Fe snarkily replied.
“So he can’t bring us back?” Kelly asked for clarification. “At all? Because we died in his profile’s confined reality?”
“Right,” Fe nodded. “But I don’t think that’s you’re here to find out, is it? That’s not really what you care about - bringing your Neptune-self back to star in more mediums prompted by your friend?”
Kelly let out a soft sight. “No.”
“You wanna find out the reason ‘why.’” Kelly and a few of us nodded. “You may not love my answer, but the only thing I can think of is that the moment you” - she looked at me - “uploaded everyone’s personal data into the Cloud, that triggered something in the algorithm.”
“Triggered something?” I repeated.
“Not to say you set anything off willingly, but it’s one thing to add real actors or names of people behind actual big productions. We don’t know any of these people personally or in our daily lives, so it doesn’t have to affect us or drastically alter the program. But since you added real people - people you know, people a part of your daily life - the confined reality Neptune has to go off of is our reality.”
“The show, Chaos TV! takes place in real life?”
“Well I don’t know what the premise is or if that’s the rules you set for it, but we can assume that whatever happens ‘off-screen’ for your actor bodies in Neptune, it’s just like a carbon copy of our exact timeline. I’m talkin’ like the here and now,” Fe said, motioning with her fingers by pointing down to the floor.
The room fell silent for a moment. Fe patiently waited to answer any more questions either of us would shoot her way. It was just so much to take in at the moment. It was all so unreal.
“You don’t really think this thing can predict the future, do you?” Jeff asked her.
Fe shrugged. “It’s a pretty complex algorithm,” she simply said. “It uses information fetched from satellites and other real-time data components. It took years and lots of legal roadblocks to get through just to even start the funding for it.”
“It does sound like a lot,” Miles said.
“The CIA and NSA had their hands on it first. Once they saw no use for it - what they really meant is they had no one to refine the code for them - then it got passed around to different tech giants before we picked it up. So, the accuracy of what it generates can often be, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, uncomfortably precise.”
“But not 100-percent?” I needed to verify.
Fe tilted her head left and right in a so-so manner. “If we wanna be technical, nothing ever is, so no,” she confirmed.
“So Frank has to be someone we know or have met at some point,” Kelly proposed. “If what Fe’s saying is true, then Neptune had to be pretty careful in casting him in the show with us. There had to be a reason.”
“Or, it could just be a creative decision on its own,” Fe suggested. “That’s always a possibility. Could be someone you all just haven't met yet, or have the possibility of crossing paths with at some point.”
True. The actress playing Jenna in seasons four and beyond starred in other things prior, as I’d pointed out before. Could that also be a coincidence?
"But why is he uncredited?" I asked. "Everyone else in the show is, all the way down to small supporting background characters and people with no lines."
"Like I said, the code may or may not be flawed, but it most certainly isn't finished," Fe proclaimed. "There's a reason I said not to use PII, not because of some foreboding prophecy behind it, but because I literally don't know what it's gonna do. The program hasn't been tested thoroughly for it yet and gone through the necessary trials and errors. I know because I've used my own personal data to create mediums for myself, and from my own observation, it's pretty clunky and nine times out of ten, the software doesn't even know how to read it and pops up with an error. Sooooo, this is what we got now. A shit show. This is new even for me - having a character not show up in the credits, and I've plenty of my own personal mediums where that didn't happen. I'm surprised it even got this far in creating so many seasons. I woulda expected it to stop before it could even generate a pilot."
“Is there... I don't know, any way you can dig into the code and find out about anything the internet or Neptune can't tell us? How we die or what went on behind-the-scenes? There's gotta be an explanation in there somewhere.”
Then, a lightbulb went off in my head, and I saw that Fe shared the same epiphany at that exact moment.
“Didn’t you say that it could generate commercials, too?” I said to him, then glanced at Fe for confirmation as well.
“... Yes, that’s true,” Jeff answered.
“So, that also means we can generate other things, too, right? Like literally any other form of media?”
“Like a behind-the-scenes featurette,” Fe dropped the idea.
“Yes!” I pointed. “Yes, exactly like that! We can use Neptune to create some sort of special behind-the-scenes reel, or anything really that might give us some answers. Maybe interviews, or press conferences, talk show appearances. Anything where we ourselves aren’t actually acting in anything, but instead talking about what’s going on in our real lives. Better yet, I’m willing to bet we can generate tabloid shows or other journalism programs that’ll talk about us. Movies do it all the time where they’ll have Jimmy Kimmel or Anderson Cooper make cameos as themselves doing news coverage as part of the story. I don’t see why this would be any different.”
Fe sat back in her chair with an amused grin as she adjusted her wide, arched lenses.
“That’s fucking genius,” Miles commented.
I looked at him. “Makes up for my terrible acting, right?” I dryly remarked.
“We can even make our own Twitter or Instagram accounts to see what else we do and talk about in our freetime, too, yeah?” Miles suggested another good idea.
“That’ll work,” Jeff nodded.
“There’s just one small problem,” Fe said. “You all won’t be able to solely rely on Anthony’s profile for answers anymore. Since you’ve selected CR mode, the only way to undo it is to start from scratch and create a new one. I haven’t set it up yet to where you can undo that process.”
“We’ve already exceeded the max allowable profiles,” Jeff noted.
“Hmm, how unfortunate. Looks like somebody’s going to have to give theirs up.”
“We can’t just have Neptune generate mediums taking place in the middle of specific seasons?” Amy asked. “Like, generate a behind-the-scenes of season two? It stopped at six. Is there no going backwards?”
“That only works in Chaos mode. You can't go backwards in CR mode unless you generate a prequel or something of the like, which is where you come in,” Fe pointed at her. “Amy’s Chaos mode profile will be the test dummy for everything, and I’d recommend it to be the main source of information for everything here on. That way we can test as many different mediums and simulations for answers without having to get stuck in any more loopholes or ‘continuity errors’ along the way.”
“But Chaos TV! is on my profile,” I pointed out. “She won’t be able to have access to all of that, will she?”
“Sure she can. I haven’t embedded it into the prototype version yet, but I do plan on adding a ‘shared profile’ feature in the final version, where two users can share one or as many mediums together as they want, including CRs. All you have to do is upload this bad boy into her Cloud, and bam, it’s there for her to experiment with,” Fe motioned with the flash drive in her hand.
“And that way we don’t have to die permanently in the thing?” Kelly asked.
“Are you ever going to let that go?” Miles said.
“What? I’m pissed. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I wanna find out who fucking killed me!”
Who? Interesting choice of words, I thought to myself. Who knew if it was even another person behind it all yet? The very thought formed goosebumps over my arms, concealed underneath my jacket. The truth is, neither of us really knew.
Jeff gave a simple nod. “I’m with her, honestly,” he agreed.
“Same,” Amy tagged in.
Fe held the flash drive in her hand still, fidgeting with it in her tiny palms.
“Mind if I make a copy of this?” Fe asked me.
“Of course,” I quickly answered. “Please.”
“That way I can pick it apart for myself and see if there’s a bug in the code somewhere. Like I said, it’s highly unlikely, but I’ve been wrong before.”
We all looked to Amy now, our new plan B in getting us closer to finding some answers as to what happened to us.
“Well,” Amy shrugged. “Let’s go behind-the-scenes, I guess.”
Though, there still remained the more honest, yet chilling question: who or what killed us? And, most importantly, what circumstances in our actual lives would lead to that occurrence?

2021.12.07 22:15 GrandadFleentstones [USA-CA] [H] FF9 Zidane plush, SMT V Fall of Man Premium Edition, Pokémon Colosseum [W] PayPal
I have decided to sell off some stuff I don’t need anymore and I will try to price them lower than average. The Pokémon Colosseum game is loose and works perfectly on my Wii and the SMT V Premium edition is still sealed and brand new. The Zidane plush is rare and special, as I have had this little guy for a long time now, but I recently I have bought a new Zidane in better condition, so I don’t need this old Zidane anymore. It hurts to say goodbye, but I know it’s better for him to be somewhere where he will be loved and cherished for always. I will ship Zidane with extreme protection, especially for his shoes and gloves, to ensure the least amount of damage possible during shipping.
I ship same day and prices don’t include shipping. These prices are not set in stone, so feel free to shoot me an offer, the worst I can say is no. I also can bundle items together if requested.
Here are the pictures of the items: PICS. Thanks for reading.
Pokémon Colosseum loose: $80 SMT V Fall of Man Edition: $140 FF IX Zidane plush: $105

2021.12.07 22:15 outcoldman Anybody can recommend good video courses appkit/cocoa development with swiftui? Coursera, youtube, anything?
Seems like some of the courses on youtube are very outdated, going back to objective-c with cocoa and maybe xcode 4-5 or so. Any suggestions on resources for Cocoa specific? Just FYI, I am pretty good already with SwiftUI, made a few apps that make good money. Just feels like there is a lot of things are missed in SwiftUI, and want to catch up on AppKit as well.

I’m a senior in high school getting my ears pierced this Christmas at a school that doesn’t allow it. I could wait till summer but me and my friend are done waiting… I’ve researched a lot of ways to hide it and it seems like piercing retainer is the way to go but is there any other way? I saw somewhere saying cutting ear sticks is a better way but haven’t been able to find what that is
