2023.06.04 06:28 DidgeriDuce Maxwell Chat Volume

Hey guys, I have a bit of an issue with the Maxwell's so far.

The audio is incredible, but I am struggling with the Discord chat volume. Even when I adjust the game-chat dial, it's still hard to hear chat from Discord. I've maxed the volume of friends in Discord and made sure the volume is coming through the chat speaker, but it's still pretty low. When I do adjust the game-chat dial the chat gets a bit louder but the game volume remains the same.

Any easy fix, maybe something I'm missing here? Or is it just how the Maxwell's are?

2023.06.04 06:28 watchingadumbass Win lose win lose win lose - How I finally got out of the seesaw cycle and how you could leave that cycle as well

Low mythic might actually be the worst rank in the game, in some ways this seesawing of WLWLWL might be more dreadful than a lose streak because of that dreadful feeling of not making any progress for the past few hours.
I feel sick to my stomach just looking at this
I'm not trying to be arrogant but I adjust every single game and we still lose because the sidelaners suck and I cannot be everywhere all at once.
So how did I get out from this hell? Simple, get a duo partner. I got one on one of the games I won and well, you can see at the end the result was. But yeah, I'll never solo queue ever again from now on.

2023.06.04 06:27 TranquillizeMe Regarding *Balance* this year...

I wanted to type this out to consolidate the general feelings of myself and maybe also the player-base into a singular post.
The balance this year has been seemingly all over the place; it has been disheveled and abrupt at times, or even just straight up late to the party. I wanna give a few concrete examples of examples of things that to myself are non-sensical and damaging to the perceptions of the Balance team.
  1. In the past, TitanForge has raved about True Damage being a problematic stat due to it's inability to be mitigated by protections, and how that can power-creep tanks if it isn't handled properly because penetration as a stat is not necessary to deal damage. Yet, they add more True Damage in 10.1 by introducing Tablet of Destinies, which was bad upon release, but subsequently over-buffed in the 10.1 balance patch, almost DOUBLING it's damage (which they said they don't do buffs in Bonus Balance unless absolutely necessary AND they said they are usually small), until it became a must buy on every mid mage and Solo Guardian (even sometimes support). Then they nerf it and Book of Thoth an appropriate amount in 10.2 Bonus, before they nerfed Book of Thoth and Tablet of Destinies AGAIN in 10.4 (Ix Chel release) for seemingly no reason as it had fallen out of the meta, and was getting virtually no play in the Pro League. The general response to this was that it was generally unwarranted, and it is not clear why they nerfed it a second time. It is still rarely seen. Those items IMO were balanced in their 10.2 Bonus state, and the fact that they buffed it so much on a Bonus Balance only to nerf it back almost to its original state just doesn't seem healthy for the game.
  2. Cyclopean Ring for some reason got nerfed alongside Telkhines ring in 10.2 Bonus, even though people were only building Telkhines. Cyclopean was already extraordinarily terrible compared to it's physical counterpart, Qin Sais, and this item's DPS is not noteworthy enough on tanks, plus it costs 350 gold more than Telkhines which offers more DPS to squishies with the added benefit of Lifesteal. Cooldown also seems like an odd stat for that item to have as I don't think Magical ADCs really prioritize that, it should likely be 8% Penetration instead, or both. And at its current cost, it would maybe be balanced. Just the fact that they touched Cyclopean when it wasn't problematic is bizarre, especially when they knew that Gilded Arrow was bugged, and Purple Buff was literally providing more Basic Attack damage early game to Mages than Hunters.
  3. Crit Chance has also been a problematic stat to the point where they altered the crit chance algorithm to be pseudo-random. They even removed Crit from Artemis passive, Jing Wei 2, Ne Zha passive, and Hun Batz passive in the 5.13 update to prevent from early crits because they were frustrating. Yet, in 10.4 they add passive crit chance to Serqet's ultimate, which is not only a lazy, uninteresting balance change, it does a couple things: it makes her more viable as a bruiser because she can deal more damage for free without having to itemize into it (which is something they literally partially reworked her and Fenrir away from) so she's now a hyper-mobile one-shotting bruiser god, and it also reintroduces the problem of BS early crits when she hits level 5. Adding a stat to a god as a passive I think can cause issues further down the line when it comes to balancing around items/roles because it allows the god to forgo certain stats in their builds in lieu of something else, such as protections.
  4. In a very similar vein to #1, Mitigations are another set of items that were overly nerfed only after they had fallen out of favor to a point where they were seen as balanced by the community. They also made the change in possibly the worst fashion, which was to completely nullify the mitigation build-path for any god with % Damage Mitigation barring Osiris by making ability+item mitigations not stack. My biggest gripe with this is that they immediately did a much better change in the 10.5 Bonus Balance a week later, which makes me wonder why they didn't do the current state now in the first place. Why would they purposefully make a stat non-valuable to a specific group of gods? It just doesn't make any sense when the current implementation is much more equitable to those gods.
  5. Healing is yet again another hot topic for debate, especially when they completely removed the brawling debuff and changed all the healing or self-healing gods (barring Cliodhna for some reason...) the same patch. One of my biggest gripes with this is they didn't catch all of the healing gods in the first go-around which is sloppy balance IMO, and then they also crazily over-buffed certain gods, like Aphrodite and Hel. Aphrodite got to grant 25% of her prots with a god in perpetuity, which on paper is just a ridiculous amount, and I'm surprised they ever thought that would be balanced and not problematic. I feel that the balance team should be experienced enough to look at that number and be like "yeah, that's probably not ok." That same sentiment is something I share with the Tablet change to 0.14% from 0.08% as well, AND the Envenomed Deathbringer change this patch, too. That item stayed bloated from 10.3 until 10.4 Bonus Balance when it was finally nerfed. Crit was finally killed off once Spectral was buffed, too, which took way too many patch cycles to do IMO. I also think the healers that have AoE team heals were not adjusted appropriately and have been bloated since 10.3, especially since Anti-heal is capped at 80%, or 50% against people with Rod of Asclepius.
  6. Vamana's change to have his healing on his ultimate shifted from healing to lifesteal completely removed his counterplay (Ankh), making him impossible to deal with. This, coupled with many buffs, has made this character which was already frustrating to play against in some cases, much more powerful and frustrating, even to casual players. They have no way to out DPS him or escape him if Vamana plays right in most cases. The balance team should have known this would eliminate his only true counter-play, yet it seems that they either didn't care or didn't think about it.
  7. Class-scaling attributes are another thing I think that completely missed the mark by decreasing average TTK back to pre-9.5 levels and also furthering the squishiness Tanks have late-game. I think giving Assassins 5 flat pen at level 1 was reckless and nonsensical given that they should know that flat-pen is the best penetration stat in the game against people with low protections - which everyone has low protections at level 1. That, and Guardians got the worst stat as their scaling attribute, CCR, while other classes get things like Power, CDR, Pen, or Attack Damage.
One other thing I want to shout out are how the Penetration Changes were also sloppy, and some items/text were entirely missed (or in the case of Dominance, were not changed at all even though the text says it was). Also, Aura prots have been a topic of discussion for several patches due to how boring they are as a mechanic, and they haven't really been touched at all. I am hoping they do so next patch though. And finally, Erlang Shen has been a mess of a character with seemingly no end in sight to being either overpowered or totally trash, and I hope they change that soon.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
While all these things above are negatives, I wanted to give a quick shout to some positives:
  1. Shielding changes to no longer stack shells and such was a good change.
  2. I like where we landed with the mitigations change ultimately.
  3. The Anubis change was very interesting and fun and I would love more changes like that.
  4. I like that the antiheal items are no longer 1-dimensional stat sticks.
  5. I like that Hel can heal mana now, including her own, and the stance switch cooldown change was nice.
  6. I like the changes to Fire Giant timer to be more fast-paced, 180 seconds with 60 seconds downtime; I think that is interesting.
  7. I like that they removed the Gold Fury bug abuse.
  8. I like the Pyromancer bomb as a mechanic.
  9. I like that they are trying to make historically bad gods viable again in conquest (Ah Puch, Anubis, Arachne, etc)
  10. I like that they're willing to change-up the meta drastically with large sweeping changes, but I wish they were executed more carefully.

2023.06.04 06:25 Broad-Art-7193 Do you have PTSD?

I can clearly remember the instance when it manifested. I'm a guy, the girl doing this to me almost made me feel emasculated.
The absolute brute force hurricane of aggression was something I had never dealt with before and it couldn't be stopped. Looking back it's really like this kind of pure fear that I'd never felt before and still cannot find a way to explain.
Even if they somehow waved a magic wand and became un-BPD'd I'd still never to be able to get the words and behaviors out of my head. There's an energy to it when they hit you with the personal remarks. A conviction that almost makes believe all of what they're saying.

I will share this example with you that makes me want to throw up because of how awful it was, most won't be able to relate. Anyway, they wanted to start relying on me for financial advice (This was before I knew about the disorder) and I gave them a stock that I liked. What did they do? Poured money into it. Well it went down slightly after they bought and every day they would lash out on me in this total meltdown of rage. "You knew you got in at the bottom! You KNEW this was going to make me lose money".
It got so bad that each morning they'd wake up and see the premarket price and wake me up yelling. CRYING about how evil I am with the intentional act of apparently being able to control the entire damn stock market. I still feel sick thinking about watching the clock turn over to 5:00 AM and hearing them start screaming. I kid you not, the day after they sold it skyrocket in value.
I haven't been able to get these events out of my head.

2023.06.04 06:12 SkyNetZ28 Best Carry Pistol for a Crappy Marksman?

Due to my schedule / family life, I get to go to the indoor range about 3x per year and plink outdoors about 2x per year. I don’t see this changing any time soon. So, I know the right answer to my question is to go practice more, but that’s not a realistic option for me at this time in my life.
Here’s the backdrop: my primary carry pistol is a P365, I also have an LCR, but I don’t carry it often. I typically carry IWB (11 or 1:00), or pocket carry in a holster. I also carry in a hip or back pack when hiking.
I’ve always considered myself to be a mediocre shot with handguns. When I have gone to the range, I’ve done well with the P365. I’ve never loved shooting it, but I love how small it is and I like that it has a manual safety and high capacity for its size.
The last two times I’ve shot have been outdoors. Two times ago the target was slightly higher than me (probably 2-3 feet up a slight incline). Yesterday it was 2-3 feet lower. So, these were not major adjustments, especially at the ~15 yard ranges at which I was shooting. In any event, I was horrible. Like I’d hit 1-2 rounds on a chest-sized metal target out of 10 on average. Sometimes I’d do 7, but I did a lot more 2’s than 7’s, and it didn’t get much better throughout the day.
Contrasting the 365 to my P226 which I also spent a decent amount of time shooting was like night and day. I started pretty rough, but after 10 or so warm up shots, I was hitting 7-8 out of 10 or higher. I felt comfortable enough to practice changing magazines, some walking drills, etc. At one moment one of the straps on the target broke and I hit 7/10 on a target that was swinging back and forth. I know the P226 and P365 is apples to oranges, but I don’t see the point of carrying a gun with which I can’t hit anything. I need something I can shoot “good enough” with without the ability to train often.
So, any suggestions on what I should replace my p365 with? Once again, I know I should practice more, but I need something I can’t shoot decently with without being able to train often.
I’d be willing to go up a little on size, but I’d like to still be able to conceal in a jacket pocket or even a loose gym shorts pocket in a pinch. I’m looking for something with a consistent and communicative trigger (I always know precisely when the P226 will fire and it’s not a long or hard squeeze). Ideally I’d like a manual safety or at least a grip safety. I’m willing to spend for the right gun. I’d like to stick with 9mm.
Also, the ranges in my area don’t have a lot of rental guns, so I may not be able to go try a lot of options.
Also, I know it’s me, not the gun. But sometimes a gun and a shooter’s style or individual characteristics don’t mesh well, and that’s what I think is happening here.
Any suggestions?

Hello! I am a employee of a non corporate Starbucks that is inside a Target shopping center. So I technically work for target and get Target benefits. However a bunch of things have been happening since I was hired 11 months ago.
So my main team lead for Starbucks (we can call her bossy), doesn’t know how to do her job. That’s right, she has worked at the SAME position for 25+ years and doesn’t know how to do her job (that’s not even the worse part). Just today she clocked out of her shift 20 mins early without telling ANYONE! Then she went to sit with her friends as I am now by myself struggling to make and take orders with a long line with about a 20 min wait time. Bossy and her friends just WATCHED me struggle with the orders. She never told me why she clocked out early even, she was NO WHERE NEAR overtime for the week. Besides that, she left us alone off and on four times for a total of 3ish hours. Didn’t have a reason but “emails”. My other team leads said it only takes 20 mins PER WEEK to work on emails, she takes 2+ hours PER DAY, and she won’t say when she is leaving to do it. If I ask where she was, she just says emails and not to worry.
She also doesn’t give us barista’s free drinks or food, yet claims to her Starbucks bosses that she does. Since I’ve been hired, I’ve never gotten a free drink from her, she is supposed to be doing it more often, but doesn’t. Even worse though, us baristas are NOT allowed to have water on hand. By state law we are supposed to have a designated area for water to go. We do not have one, we brought this up to her and Bossy ignored us. So we are LUCKY if we get to drink ANYTHING between breaks (about 4 hours), and our Target isn’t cooling off fast enough to beat the heat, so it’s humid and hot inside the store. We brought this up to a higher team lead and they also ignored us. Hell, even HR ignored me!
Now the team lead above bossy and is the front of the store team lead who is responsible for scheduling (let’s call him EL for entitled leader), has refused me to be trained in other parts of the store. I’ve been BEGGING for 2 months to be trained in ANY position and no longer work Starbucks, and that I don’t care where and I won’t complain. Plus we are in dire need of staff however the store refuses to hire new people and instead burns out it’s own employees. He moved me to lanes 2 times, other then that I’ve only been in Starbucks. I tried asking again and he ignored me. There is 3 team lead positions opening up within the next 2 weeks and I feel like if I ask they won’t allow me to apply just because. ALSO EL hates giving vacation time or days of, even though your not available that day for whatever reason, he will still put you on the schedule. I requested a weekend off 2 months in advance, and he kept denying it for no reason.
I wish there were other jobs near by that paid as much or better then Target, but none of them come close, and as a person finishing high school, I prefer a higher paying job. However the management at Target, in the part of the store where I work, is so bad I want to quit.
ALSO!!!! Almost all of the baristas are DRAMA! And I’ve been so mistreated over my mental and physical health that I can’t take it. As a person who gets triggered and can easily get panic attacks I did warn them that if I run to the back randomly I just need a min. One time I did that after a miserable week, I ran to the back struggling to breathe. One barista that was about to clock out for lunch turned around, looked at me, and said, “What the f*ck is wrong with you?!” I slowly said panic attack through gasps and shaking and all she said was “Well get back to work then, it’s not that bad.” HUH!? I’m barely able to stand in front of you, wdym?
There is another barista that makes fun of me because I can’t spell names for the life of me. So I often ask customers to spell it for me and I always hear behind me, then spelling it super slow interrupting the customer as they are making drinks.
Now, is this normal and I’m frustrated over nothing, or are my feelings accurate. Cause to me it’s EXTREMELY infuriating.

2023.06.04 06:07 shatlking I realized what I want out of BeamNG's career mode

For those who don't know, a concept of BeamNG's career mode is available if you click the career button (although grayed out) 6 times. In the career mode, you can "purchase" a car, do races and jobs, and of course crash. While I like it, I found myself underwhelmed; even if it is just an "open alpha".
Last week, I downloaded Street Legal Racing Redline again. After playing it a bit, I realized that it had what I want. So, I'll describe how one might go about combining what little we've seen of the career mode with SLRR's career mode.
For starters, I don't hate what has already been shown. But, I do think that it's rudimentary, bare in mind going forward, this is only based off of what we've seen, and there may be more anyways. Anything I say is only meant as a critique. I think that what has been shown should remain though, albeit expanded upon. The street races could be a good way to provide high money, but at high risk. Perhaps have races at the track (assuming the base map is West Coast USA, more on that later) where you can also do higher paying races, with low risk, but only on a schedule time frame; similar to SLRR's time system that opens and closes shops and starts and stops the drag races.
The other jobs, such as the cable one, could also be expanded upon. One of the things that drives me crazy in SLRR is when you completely destroy your car, and have no money to fix it. This could be remedied by having a cable job (perhaps utilizing the walk feature and bus stops) that you can do, although you have to do it. You could also add a delivery job, that uses your own car. It doesn't pay as much, but you are on no schedule. Another one could be a volunteer police officer, which lets you use police cars and hunt crooks. Maybe even shut down a street race.
While I do like the idea of the base map being WCUSA, I know some of my potato friends may have a sub optimal time running it. I propose adding both Utah and ECUSA/Italy as other options, with more maps opening as you get funds to travel there (perhaps in a similar fashion to Snowrunner?). Utah could feature more offroad events, such as rally and crawling; while ECUSA could feature rally and hillclimb/closed street circuits.
Another thing that I like from SLRR is the garage and parts shop. The garage in the game is already fairly useful, with my only gripe being that the menu is clunky (the one built into the career mode, not the actual garage map). I think this can be better changed in two ways: firstly making the garage only for changing and modifying your car(s). Secondly, again utilizing the bus stops, add functionality to the dealerships by creating them as places to buy new or used cars, depending on the dealership.
Another thing SLRR does well is the parts shop, and in a similar vain, damage to cars is also done well. I propose that the parts menu in game currently is slightly adjusted in career mode to only feature parts you own, although parts that work on multiple cars (Nomi GTT wing for instance) can be applied to multiple cars (although, only one car per part). We also know that BeamNG can store and also reload damaged vehicles. Again similar to SLRR, what if damage applied to your car remained even after you close the game? Let's say I slam my Sunburst into a guardrail, then quit the game. I'd want to see (alongside the small charge that towing has) my Sunburst still damaged.
While I know we've been waiting for the long awaited career mode for awhile, I think making these changes is worth it if it means that BeamNG is still the best car sim out there.

Long story short: Make BeamNG's career mode similar to SLRR, while also still retaining what we've already seen.

There is another barista that makes fun of me because I can’t spell names for the life of me. So I often ask customers to spell it for me and I always hear behind me, then spelling it super slow interrupting the customer as they are making drinks.
Now, is this normal and I’m frustrated over nothing, or are my feelings accurate. Cause to me it’s EXTREMELY infuriating.

Free Bonus #1: Private Rolodex™

If you invest now you’ll get access to my private rolodex of 696 clients you saw earlier…
You will be able to apply with my full-cycle recruiting team to get hand-placed in one of the clients I am personally consulting. This way, we can do the “sourcing” part done for you and place you in a high-paying offer ASAP. We can’t guarantee done-for-you placement for EVERY single person who takes us up in the program gets placed. So because of this, I’m also going to give you…

Free Bonus #2: My Done-For-You List Of Perfect Clients™

This is a hand-picked list of perfect companies who need remote closers who are not are clients (at least yet, 😉 It’s a DFY list of small FB and Linkedin Groups as well as other segmented lists of perfect clients. How do I know it’s perfect? Because it’s the same exact list my team uses to prospect for our clients. So we know it works 😉 And remember: I’m already giving you copy & paste outreach messages so you can land a contract, fast. They’re the EXACT messaging templates I used when I got my first contract with NO experience. I sent 54 of these templates and got 5 offers within 7 days!

Free Bonus #3: Sales 1o1 Crash Course™

Strapped on time? If you invest TODAY, I’ll give you a special training series I originally created for Tony Robbins & Dean Graziosi.

Combine this WITH the rolodex + DFY lists, you could have a gig in as little as 7 days!

BONUS #4: Ascension Masterclass™

Remember how I was telling you these business owners HATE taking sales calls? Well, guess what’s the only thing they hate MORE than taking the actual calls? Managing the sales team. Believe me: This is the LAST thing these business owners want to do. And because of this, they’ll pay a hefty % of the profits to a sales integrator who can do this FOR them… The Ascension Masterclass™ is currently the ONLY training material that shows you how to go from closer → sales integrator.

BONUS #5: Access To The Vault™

It’s one thing for me to teach you all the tactics and sales techniques. But how much faster would you be able to learn it if you could see it in real time? In the vault, you will have access to personal call recordings and breakdowns of ME. That way, you can simply model my behavior to start making big money ASAP.

BONUS #6: The Interview Cheat Sheet

Simply by using the copy-and-paste message + DFY list of clients I give you, you’ll sit back and watch as opportunities are falling in your lap. Now, once you’re talking with the business owners… what if I could give you the right answers to every single question they’re going to ask you? That’s exactly what the interview cheat sheet is. I’m basically giving you the answers to the test, before you take it. How do I know it’s the right answers? Because I’ve consulted over 1000 sales teams and am considered the industry leaders in that space. Believe me, I know all the questions. Hell, half of them learned from me, anyways 🙂 Imagine how blown away the business owner will be when you nail every single question that they ask…That’s exactly what this cheat sheet will do for you.

BONUS #7: Elite Subcommunication & Tonality™

2 closers. Same scripts. Different results. Why? I’ll show you subtle subcommunication & tonality cues causing avg. salesppl to miss easy sales. And, you can deploy power cues & triggers that make you WILDLY persuasive to most prospects.

BONUS #8: Inner Game Of Sales™

Ever struggled with inconsistency? Sales slumps? This training will show you the mental models I use to stay hot – all of the time! Imagine: You never went into a sales slump…How much more money would you make? This will give you consistency in EVERY aspect of your life…

2023.06.04 06:01 CakeDude34 A Hypothetical Fallout RTS

So have been thinking about a hypothetical Fallout RTS that could be interesting and Bethesda would have options for factions and mechanics so I thought of some.
Major Factions on launch
Minutemen
East Coast Brotherhood(Fallout 4)
Railroad
Institute
No particular reason I chose the Fallout 4 factions over the New Vegas ones I just wanted to have 4 factions on launch
DLC Factions Ideas
Realistic options
NCR
Caesar’s Legion
Vegas
Master
Enclave (Fallout 2)
These guys have decent options for content and useful array of troops that they would be realistic factions options
Possible factions
Enclave (Fallout 3)
East Coast Brotherhood (Fallout 3)
West Coast Brotherhood
Nuka World Raiders
Some faction from Fallout 76
These factions are possible but can't really think of much to flesh them out like how can I make the West coast Brotherhood stand out from the east coast variants. Thinking that the West Coast Brotherhood, Fallout 3 Brotherhood and Fallout 3 Enclave can be subfactions that you can chose when you start the game up
Strengths and weaknesses of the Base game factions
Generally how I thought of the Factions abilities is that I based on Lore and stuff we see in games, example give with the Enclave from Fallout 2 we see that they don't like outsider so that will be reflected in how they work
Minutemen- Good all arounder with easier time capturing settlements (more on that in the Gameplay) for resource production with maybe access to T-45 so they can hold their own against the Brotherhood. Also I am thinking they would be more defensive of the four base game factions as they will generally want to defend areas to hold out for reinforcements.
East Coast Brotherhood(Fallout 4)- Access to high end energy weapons and Power Armor. Weakness more Expensive Units and slower to build said units and capture time on settlements is slowed
Railroad- Smallest armies of the base game factions but higher quality troops and relying more on Hero like units such as Deacon and Glory and good tech options with Gauss rifles and Railroad Heavy Armor
Institute- Cheap and disposable units in Gen 1 and Gen 2 synths and powerful units in Coursers with maybe some Super mutants for fun. However Coursers are not cheap and slow to build and the Institute will have a terrible time capturing Settlements.
Some DLC factions Strengths and Weaknesses
NCR-access to good units in the form of Rangers and Heavy Troops but both will have a limit and are costly, for the majority will have to be the standard trooper. Along with this lack of good hero like units or none at all, can’t think of any charter that would fit except maybe Oliver or Boone along with a penalty to working with minor factions (I will touch on those in a bit)
The Legion- Cheap troops that level up the more combat they experience becoming better and better until reaching a limited number of Praetorian Guards. Good heroes in the form of Lanius, Joshua Graham, and maybe Ulysses. Downsides lack of a good tech tree with your better units coming from your soldiers being upgraded. Also when they capture settlements they enslave them for a time penalty on resource production as the settlers adjust to the new rule.
Vegas- Powerful Securitron Mk 1 units and has an easier time getting caps and can gain access to Mk 2 series. Downside said Mk 2 series requires the Platinum chip to be gained, an expensive and slow tech to research that would take a while to gain and would be an end game tech for Vegas. Along with a lack of good units outside of the Securitrons, after all the White Gloves run at the courier with dressing canes
Master- Strong mutants that can hold their own along with nightkin for more hit and run tactics. Downsides Mutants require a new resource specific to the Master, Humans which he will need to make new Mutants that can be gain from settlements of all types but is gained slowly and the Master has an option to take people from settlement for a cost of resource production for a time
Enclave (Fallout 2) best Power Armor available in the form of the Mark 1 and access to Gen 2 mutants to perform as a stop gap troop. Can not capture settlements only wipe them out and colonize faster than other factions and gain a production boost for them as well and gain more resources from their buildings
Gameplay
Every Faction has access to Hero Units on top of their standard units. These will be either Companions from said faction, Preston for the Minutemen, faction leaders Legate Lanius, or both if they have good options Maxson or Danse from Fallout 4. Each one will be better in different roles when compared to others like Danse would probably be one of the better ones from a combat perspective but Preston would be better in a support role.
There will be minor factions on the map like Boomers, Great Khans, Children of Atom or Brotherhood chapters if no player is a Brotherhood faction. They can give you rewards in the form of troops or abilities to aid in the battle if you manage to secure their loyalty, or be wiped out so no one can get it though it will be difficult. Also should note if they are secured by one faction then they will not be able to be taken control by another faction so they will have to be killed, though if the faction like the NCR gets the loyalty of the Boomers and the NCR is defeated then they go back to neutral. You can think of them like shops from Warcraft 3 where you can buy potions or items from them
Along with the more neutral factions there would be one the map hostile like raiders or hostile fauna that can be kill for exp for heroes or Legions soldiers
The map will have settlements around that are the key to getting resources such as food, water, caps and other items that can be captured and can act as staging ground for attacks. Idea based of the resource points from Company of Heroes
Once a settlement is taken it will have to be captured by force for a cost of production for a time or destroyed so the opponent can’t take it back. I am thinking that player owns it they can destroy it to prevent it from falling to the enemies hands
If a settlement is wiped out the player will be able to recolonize it for the same benefit. Thought it will be while for it come back online. This could be annoying to programed but it would be interesting to see
You can also build resource production buildings in your base that can give you resources but they will produce less than settlements but some factions will be able to get more out of them such as the Enclave and Institute.
Tech
How tech would work is that you can research it in dedicated buildings, for example a “research hub” is where you would research better armor or weapons. Another way is to have specific buildings to get it like in Starcraft, for example to build NCR rangers at your barracks you would need a Ranger station or something like that.
There would also be unique tech for some factions as mentioned before Gauss rifles and Railroad Heavy armor would be given to the Railroad and Mark 1 Power Armor for the Enclave.
Conclusion
So here are some of the ideas and general concepts of how I think a Fallout RTS would work and would like to hear what everyone else thinks.

2023.06.04 05:57 Amicus-Finch What makes plaintiff a good or bad witness?

At mediation and depos, plaintiffs get sized up by defense counsel, adjusters, mediators, etc. When they think plaintiff will make a good or bad witness, what traits are they typically referring to? I think some things are obvious - consistent, credible, sympathetic, etc.
But after some of the obvious traits, I get a bit confused. For example, if someone is very emotional, or if someone gets upset or tears up when discussing the case, I have heard mixed things regarding whether this is a positive trait for the plaintiff. Some say it makes them sympathetic, whereas others think it makes them "whiny" or easy for a defense counsel to manipulate on the stand during cross examination.
If a plaintiff is very reserved and does not speak in detail about their general damages and injuries, I have heard some say this makes the plaintiff "likeable" and down to earth, humble, and credible. Others view it as a witness who cannot support his case. Or if you have someone who is the opposite - very gregarious, articulate, and talkative - some see this as positive, whereas others think it makes the witness seem phony and like his testimony is too rehearsed.
I understand it's a case by case basis for each individual - but generally, how do you typically view these types of traits?

2023.06.04 05:56 sister_moon1 My Story of Growing Up With Psychics and Mediums

This is a true story of my young life growing up with psychics and mediums and I believe it was a necessary experience for me to have, in order to adjust me to being a psychic and a medium, it is both a very fortunate, and an unfortunate story. I say it was fortunate because it gave me a strong foundation of knowing and believing in spirit, and a family that never doubted me when I began having psychic experiences, and of course it was unfortunate because I got to experience such things that most young children should not ever know.
I came to realise that spirits existed from a very young age because my grandmother, mother, uncle and his wife, my aunty, were all open to spirit in one way or another.
And we all lived together in the same home within the UK.
My cousin lived there too, he was my uncles son and he was 18 months older than me.
My earliest memories of the house was around the year 1967 when I was 3 years old. My mother had her back to me, she was sitting in a chair holding my new baby brother, and he was looking at me over my mothers shoulder and smiling, I was smiling back at him and I was very excited to have a baby brother, but sadly this joy didn't last long as he died tragically, when he was only 3 months old. Looking back now on that single memory, I often think of how old and intelligent his soul was for a young baby, to be aware of me at such a tender young age.
Has I mentioned, I was very young and the house we lived in was haunted by at least three spirits. I never actually saw any of these spirits myself, and I don't believe my cousin did either, but I heard lots of screams and screeches from my mother and my aunty, whenever they witnessed an apparition. !
My Grandmother was the sober, and less excitable of the adults, but even she had a few funny turns from time to time, and I often overheard stories of a young child that was seen playing in the garden (she was a girl) or of the red haired women that had been seen on the stairs.
On one occasion, I remember I was sitting playing in the kitchen, it was a bright summers day and my aunty and my mother were busy spring cleaning the house. The door in the kitchen lead into the lounge and there was an old wooden door to the right, when you entered the lounge that lead to the stairs leading to the upper bedrooms. The door to the kitchen and the stairwell door were both wedged open, as my aunty was busy brushing the stairs with the tall handled broom, the atmosphere was pleasant and happily busy, when out of nowhere, I heard a terrifying scream coming from my aunty, followed by running as she flew down the stairs, my grandmother was up and out of the kitchen and I overheard my aunty talking to my grandmother about seeing the lady's long red hair floating as she looked up from her brushing, just when it disappeared down the stairs.
There were a couple of other instances of the little girl being seen in the garden and the red haired lady on the stairs, I only ever heard my grandmother and my aunty talk about seeing them.
The most scary of all the incidents that ever happened in that house, happened when I was about 5 or 6 years old, and it had me terrified of the stairwell right on up until we finally moved out.
Before beginning this terrifying story, I do think I should mention that the house never had any creepy or eerie feeling and the overall atmosphere of the place was pleasant. I should also mention that my mother was a lazy selfish women, and this story is her experience alone, although, by default its mine too.
It was a terribly wet, windy day, it hadn't stopped raining all day long and now it was late in the afternoon and the shopping needed to be done for us all to have dinner. My uncle and aunty had moved out at this time, so there was just my cousin, me, my mother and my grandmother who was 70 years old that were still living there. My selfish mother did not want to go out in the pouring rain and so it was left to my grandmother to have to get ready to go, I did not want my grandmother to go out in the pouring rain, she was old and wind and the weather was very bad. I think I asked if I could go with her, but I wasn't allowed. I remember looking out the window at the grey sky and all the rain, worrying about my grandma, for what seemed like forever. then finally I saw her shadow arriving back and coming up our path, and I ran to the door to greet her.
When she got in the lounge she looked very ill and her poor face was ashen white, her coat and clothes were soaking wet and I was very sad to see her looking so ill, and my mother ran around to make hot tea and get her dry clothes and towels.
Much later that evening I'd fallen to sleep on the coach, and my mother was carrying me up the stairs to bed, she had nearly gotten up to the landing when I was awoken by my mother screaming for her mother on the top of the stairs.! I woke up and tried to look to see why my mother was screaming, but my mother held my head pressed in her chest, so I could not see anything, then I heard and saw my grandmother shouting and waving her umbrella in the air, has she came up the stairs to the rescue, My mother came down the stairs with me and that night we slept in the lounge on the sofa.
I don't recall when I heard them talking about that night, but I know I was still in the house as I was terrified to go up those stairs at night after hearing that, so I was still very young when I heard about it.
what I heard was terrifying. !!!
My mother said she was climbing the stairs the light on the landing was off, but there was a full moon out illuminating through the landing window, so it was bright enough to see as she walked up the stairs towards the landing, she said she heard someone breathing and has she looked up she saw a figure coming out of the spare room that was at the far end of our hallway, the figure was covered in hair right down to near the floor and she couldn't see its face, she saw it put it's hand on the banister rail as it was moving towards her, and she said the nails were long, yellow, and twisted around like a cork screw and she could hear the breathing getting loader as it was coming towards her
This is the point when I heard my mother scream for her mother, and she added that when grandma opened the stairway door it started to move back towards the room where it came from and finally disappeared just before grandma had gotten up the stairs, so grandma saw nothing.
I believe I overheard repeated pieces of conversations about this at different times, when grandma and my mother were talking in the lounge, unfortunately in those times the assumption was that younger children didn't really understand what you were talking about. but I did, and I was terrified I would see the same thing too, but no one ever did.
My grandmother concluded that it was her dead husband, my grandfather, that had scared my mother that evening for her wickedness of letting her poor old mother go out in such weather, and I have to agree, especially after having a psychic encounter with him myself years later.
It was not a terrifying encounter, but he warned me very softly but seriously of the dangers of dabbling with drugs and the effects it has on the soul when you pass, I understood then that my grandfather was the patriarch that kept the family all in check, and even after he'd passed on, he was still watching out for us, needless to say, but I headed his warning and never messed with drugs again.
It sounds very strange to say this, but besides all the things that happened, I did love that house and have some of my fondest memories there of when all my family were happily together, unfortunately there is only me, my cousin, and my mother left who remembers those days in that house.

What You Get:

MODULE 1

YOUR PROFITABLE PRODUCT IDEA

Designing a Blockbuster Hit Starts Here
The best products start with the best and most profitable ideas — which don’t happen by chance nor by waiting for lightning to strike.
It takes a proven process to zero in on the idea with the potential to fly off the shelves.
In this module, you’ll discover my Profitable Product Idea. You will:
  • Choose the best product and audience for you to profit from right now
  • Make sure your Idea passes all 7 Criteria of the Profitable Niche Checklist
  • Express your Idea in one simple phrase that attracts your target market in droves
  • Pre-validate there’s demand for your Idea in a way that automatically lines up your future customers
  • Create your Profitable Product Idea Blueprint so you have everything in one place
This process was developed over 7 years and 7,000 students, and can shave months or even years off your journey from idea to profit.
Whether you don’t have any ideas, or you have too many ideas, or you’re not sure whether your idea will work, your Blockbuster Hit Product starts here.
MODULE 2

YOUR IDEA TO MARKET BLUEPRINT

Turning Your Idea Into an Irresistible Offer
In this module, you’ll take your profitable idea and transform it into the kind of thing folks will line up to buy.
We call it your “Offer”, and it’s the scaffolding around your idea that makes it real. Elements such as:
  • Your blockbuster course name, your price point, your guarantee, bonuses and the reasons to buy now
  • The points of credibility that create massive buyer trust — even if you’re just getting started
  • Your uniquely valuable “process” — how you go about getting your students results (a huge selling point)
  • The social proof to start attracting paying customers immediately, even if this is the first time you’re doing this
The right offer can triple or even quadruple your sales, while the wrong offer will turn a great Idea into a ghost town.
By the end of this module, you’ll have the deep confidence that comes from knowing that everything you’re creating is exactly what your audience wants to buy.
Now you’ll be ready for Module 3, where we’ll start building!
MODULE 3

YOUR MVP LAUNCH

Creating Your Minimal Viable Product & Getting to Market Fast
By the end of this module, you’ll create just enough of your new program or course to be able to start making real, actual sales to real actual customers.
So many programs stop short of this critical step, and leave you stranded, wondering how to bridge the gap between theory and practice. That’s a huge mistake, because it’s critical to test the real world response to your offer before you create your whole course or product, while you still have time to make easy changes and pivots.
Some folks hit it out of the park on the first try, while others need to refine and adjust for a few cycles before they land on just the right thing. Either way, this process ensures you never waste months and thousands of dollars creating the wrong thing.
In this Module you’ll:
  • Use the “paint-by-numbers” MVP process to choose the exact pieces of your product and how they fit together
  • Finalize your Launch “Blueprint”, including the exact concrete steps to get to market FAST and start making sales straight away
  • Choose and deploy one of the 3 simple marketing & promotion campaigns to locate and find the people most likely to want to buy from you
  • Copy/paste from our pre-written campaign messaging templates to immediately have people wanting to know more (versus tuning out or scrolling past)
  • Follow the word-for-word sales scripts to confidently sell your MVP and start taking money even before the end of the module!
MODULE 4

SUPERCHARGE YOUR MARKETING

Reach Even More People & Make Even More Sales
Now that you’ve proven your offer by making some sales, our optional Module 4 is where you can take your marketing even further by stacking 2-3 campaigns together to create a supercharged, multiplier effect.
Whether you stack simple campaigns, requiring little-to-no technology, or more robust campaigns — this is how you realize Goal X. A whole lot more. Whatever that looks like to you.
In this Module, get ready to turn a handful of sales into an avalanche:
  • Get our EIGHT pre-written ready-to-go “Experience Marketing” Campaigns that you can just plug right in
  • Recieve my entire vault of pre-written scripts, emails, web page templates, sales & video scripts that you can take and customize or just use “as is” — they’re yours and they’ve generated literally millions of dollars for my other students
  • Create a Custom Campaign Stack that suits your dominant marketing style — whether you prefer to sell through 1:1 conversations, speaking to groups, or writing — so marketable feels easier than it ever has before
  • Recieve my entire vault of pre-written scripts, emails and web page templates that you can take and customize or just use “as is” — they’re yours and they’ve generated literally millions of dollars for my other students
  • Stand out with your marketing in a powerful, unique, fresh and engaging way that gets the attention of your ideal customers, which is 99% of the battle in today’s noisy marketplace, so you can make some real money
After that, we start to really dial up the “WOW” for your students…
MODULE 5

EXPERIENCE ESCALATION

Supercharge Your Results
Now that you’ve proven your product with real sales and you have a plan for reaching even more people and making even more money, this is where we pour fuel on the fire by “experiencifying” your course.
“Experiencification” is the process of stacking the 10 Core Experiences of The Experience Formula™ into every element of your Experience Product, to increase the effectiveness of your product by 10-30 times.
In this Module you’ll:
  • “Experiencify” your program with the 10 Core Experiences of The Experience Formula™ to create an engaging experience that works with (rather than against) the brain to get your customers “hooked” on taking action and getting results
  • Watch as your students spontaneously put down distractions and excuses and become “achievement machines”, focused on taking action, getting results and bringing more customers your way
  • Embed a powerful process for gathering success stories right into your course, so you can quickly have dozens if not hundreds of glowing testimonials (this is how I ended up with 1480 testimonials and counting for EPM!)

Spectrum Outfitters vs GC2B Review
Hey there guys!
I've been wearing one of GC2B's racerback binders since late 2021, and two months ago I bought a Spectrum Outfitters short binder. I've seen a lot of people asking about these two binders in comparison, so I decided there was no better time than the present to do a review of them.
First, a bit about my body type, though.
I have a pretty large chest relatively speaking, with a 32" rib circumference underneath my soft tissue, and a 39.5" circumference around the chest/nipple, which puts me at around a G to H-cup in terms of bra size. I bought a size medium for both the GC2B and the Spectrum Outfitters binders. I believe my sizing is actually pretty significant in terms of the fit of these two binders, but I plan on getting into more detail about that later.
So without further adieu, the review!
For reference, S = Spectrum Outfitters, and G = GC2B

Spectrum Oufitters side view
With the side view, there tends to be a visible "dent" or "swoop" from the shirt falling through the neckline of the binder, which gives the effect of it looking less flat than the GC2B binder.

GC2B side view
As you can see, the GC2B binder isn't completely flat either, but the shape seems a bit smoother, and looks a bit less like I'm wearing something under my shirt.

Spectrum Outfitters front view
GC2B front
Not a huge difference here.

Spectrum Outfitters front view (no graphics)
Here, you can yet again see the shirt sort of fall through the largelower neckline of the SO binder. It's more obvious on this shirt than it was on the black shirt with the graphic design.

GC2B front view (no graphics)
With the GC2B binder, the neckline is visible, but it's higher up, and there's not enough weight to make the shirt fall through much. However, as you can see, the binder kind of squishes my chest together, giving me a "uni-boob" that's slightly more visible/less flat looking.

Spectrum Outfitters fit.
This is where the Spectrum Outfitters binder shines. As you can see, the whole binder comes much lower down on my torso, which provides support for my chest. The armpit area is also much lower, and so I don't have fabric cutting into my armpit. However, as you can see, the lower neckline allows my chest tissue to squish upwards, which is technically a better binding practice as it avoids skin stretching, but it makes that tissue more visible and prominent with a shirt on.

GC2B fit.
The GC2B binder binds higher, and doesn't leave a wide gap for the short to fall through when I wear one... BUT, my chest is constantly slipping down in the binder, and I'm almost always having to stick my hands under my shirt to readjust my chest every few minutes. Very, VERY often. This binder is also very tight around my armpit and it kind of hurts like hell. The smaller armpit hole is actually why I think the GC2B binder gives me uni-boob. It forces them to press together in the middle instead of chilling on the side.

Binders overlapped.
Here you can see how much lower the Spectrum Outfitters binder sits than the GC2B one. The Spectrum Outfitters binder also has much wider and more discreet shoulder straps that slide into view way less often than the GC2B ones do. In fact, the GC2B shoulder straps actually cut into my shouldeneck, and cause a lot of discomfort.
In general, the Spectrum Outfitters binder is MUCH more comfortable than the GC2B binder. My nipples never feel like they are getting chaffed, the fabric is much thinner, cooler, and softer than the GC2B's fabric, there are no uncomfortable seams digging into my skin, and I never have to readjust my chest in the binder. The Spectrum Outfitters binder is much better for exercising or doing active things as well.
However, in terms of raw binding power, I think the GC2B may be slightly better.
But that comes with a big caveat, and that's 1) it binds better IF AND ONLY IF my chest is in the right position, i.e., I've just adjusted it in the last few seconds, and 2) IF YOU HAVE A LARGER CHEST.
I think all of the problems I have with the Spectrum Outfitters binder wouldn't be an issue if I had a smaller chest. For example, your shirt probably won't fall into your cleavage if you don't have a big enough chest to have major cleavage in the first place. With a smaller chest, I think that the Spectrum Outfitters binder would be better on all accounts.
So to summarize...
Binding power: The GC2B is slightly better, especially with a larger chest. However, the larger chest can "fall down" or slip in the binder, which means you need to readjust the binder constantly to get the full binding effect. I'd say...
Spectrum Outfitters - 4
GC2B - 5

Versatility; The Spectrum Outfitters binder is more discreet, has less visible straps/seams, and is much better for exercise. Since I don't have to readjust my chest wearing it, it's also far better for multi-layers outfits.
Spectrum Outfitters - 5
GC2B - 3

Comfort; Spectrum Outfitters wins this one hand down for many many reasons. Softer, cooler, better fit, less tight in the armpit/shoulder, supports your chest, folds nicely, does not roll up, etc...
Spectrum Outfitters - 5
GC2B - 3

Durability/Quality; While I haven't been wearing my Spectrum Outfitters binder for nearly as long as my GC2B binder, I can pretty safely assure you that the stitching and pigment quality of the Spectrum Outfitters binder is far superior. It feels much better quality.
Spectrum Outfitters - 5
GC2B - 3

TD;LR

The Spectrum Outfitters binder is more comfortable and more supportive, has less visible straps, and is of higher quality (seemingly). However, the GC2B has slightly better raw binding power for larger chests.
I would recommend the Spectrum Outfitters binder over the GC2B binder.

If you have any additional questions, please let me know.

2023.06.04 05:43 Least-Juggernaut-740 No thoughts?

Does anyone else experience a blank mindset when adjusted to prozac? I used to always overthink and have thoughts about everything i did but now nothing comes to mind, the world feels quiet and peaceful for once and it does feel a little unusual because for the past 7 years i always stared at blank walls.., my mind would be filled with negativity, depressing and suicidal thoughts. Now its like im walking quietly and sometimes makes me a bit anxious but so far im loving the experience. I always wondered how people went throughout the days without thinking about what they’re going to say next or do next, having that inner monologue telling you lies to make you more scared about what you’re about to do. I just do it without a negative thought and i can see why everyone always told me im overthinking. Im on 20mg and its great

2023.06.04 05:35 Aromatic-Republic-77 How can I (18F) adjust when moving from 6.5 hours to 1 hr away from my boyfriend (18M)?

For some backstory, i’ll try to make it as understandable as possible.
I live in ohio and my boyfriend lives in illinois. I have a friend, M, who used to live in illinois and grew up with my boyfriend and other people our age. Then, in fifth grade, she moved to my school and we became friends. During the pandemic, M started a server with me, a few friends from school, and her friends from illinois. My boyfriend was NOT a part of this as they had more distance over the years. Eventually, in 11th grade, M invited me and a few other friends to visit a college in her hometown in illinois, and to meet with the friends we had in the group chat. We agreed, and during this trip M’s family had a get together with everyone they knew from illinois and my future boyfriend attended. He and I hit it off, and the next day he even attended the college tour and ice skating with us. We started dating about 1.5ish months later.
Now during our relationship, we’ve had to learn a lot of communication and how to be more mature during it due to the distance. We are doing extremely well and don’t have any major issues besides some struggle with the distance. We meet every 2-4 weeks depending on circumstances. Ever since the tour i took with M i fell in love with her hometown and she and i both planned to attend the college. However, due to cost, I instead took an opportunity at a college an hour away where I got nearly a full ride scholarship and massive opportunities in the honors program. M will likely attend the college in her hometown. Due to this, I will be living an hour away from my boyfriend, and I am really nervous about the transition and would appreciate any advice. I do have some friends in his and M’s hometown but most are his friends so i do not exactly count them. I plan to not see him for a couple of weeks to settle in and meet people and then we will go from there. Thank you for advice!

2023.06.04 05:34 thenamesLilith Am I wrong for not wanting to be affectionate with my stepson after what he told his mom and my husband?

Obligatory long time lurker first time poster disclaimer..also on mobile instead of Browser so I’m sorry for the formatting.
To start I met my partner (30m) two years ago, we’ve lived together for one. He has two children from previous relationships, (12m &3m) and I knew that from the beginning. We waited till we were together for a year before my partner introduced his eldest and I. Now I’m not the first girlfriend my partner has introduced him to the last one is his younger brothers mother but things ended very badly between her and my partner so the separation was very quick. I made it very clear to my partner and to both moms that I had no intention of taking ones place or trying to play step mommy. But was around to pick up the baby whenever I was needed and helped out with childcare here and there. When his eldest and I first met things were weird obviously I was asked a lot of questions but one that stuck out the most was him asking if I really loved his dad and if I would leave him the way the last one did. Broke my heart. Since then we’ve had a pretty good relationship as far as I knew. To the point where I take him to school on the Monday’s that we had him for the weekend prior, when his dad works nights I let him stay up to watch movies with me or play video games. His dad and I both embrace his hobbies be it sports or legos or anything else he’s asked us for. We’re are constantly looking for things to do on our weekends because it’s something different from his everyday routine. As per the discussions I’ve heard from his mom to my partner and how she speaks to her son and a few other things his home life is very…broken. Coming from his acting out in school to him being distructive and bullying he’s going through alot right now. From what he’s said and asked us over the last year is questions about what would change if he came to live with us, or what happens if he wants to live with us. I come from a separated family, had to go through my own court case with my mom and birth father because after 15 years he decided he wanted to try to take me from my mom. So I have a little insight on how this process works. When he’s asked me on those drives to school(just me and him) I’ve answered as honestly but neutrally as possible. Yes, I’ve told him that he’s getting to that age that if he wanted to he could make the choice and it would be taken into consideration at court. He’s not at that age yet so when he asked if he should tell his mom I said ‘no maybe not yet because right now we can’t do anything but if that’s something you want then you need to talk to your dad.’ At the end of every answer or piece of advice I give him I aways end with ‘this is something you should ask your dad about’ There in lies the core of our problem. This happens two weeks ago and this weekend when we went to go pick him up we were told that we would not be seeing him and that I was a disgusting person for trying to take her son away..somewhere in our conversation he got it in his head that I told him to create an escape plan and that he shouldn’t tell his mom till that day actually happens. According to the foul text I received from her (she’s only two years older than me please keep that in mind (she’s also a teen mom who cheated in both marriages and alienated my partner from his son for 11 years while cycling men in and out of the house the entire time) I am a childish disgusting mentally Ill psycho who needs help. He told his dad that he felt uncomfortable around me and refused to come with us if I was there. (It’s my apartment) after all the late night Friday’s doing homework after games, early morning Saturdays at games, washing dishes they all leave on the couch when their done, washing all their clothes even at the last minute, driving across town and from the house and school to take lost back packs and forgotten shoes…every home made dinner he exclaimed that he loved that I made for him because his mom only knows how to cook eggs (he said this) At the end of all this he doesn’t want to be around me because I’ve made him uncomfortable. He ended up going to his cousins where he’s allowed to stay up all day and night eat junk food and play video games. Things we don’t do here cause she’s had him grounded from all tech for over two months and we don’t eat junk food and have a 10 o’clock bedtime. My partner thinks this is his way of getting out of coming with us to go and be with his cousin instead but I don’t know I’m getting attacked from all angles, his mom, him, her family and I don’t like the way this feels. Would I be wrong for only doing the bare minimum and no longer answering his questions or call him pet names like I do to his brother and father because his mom called me a disgusting person for trying to steal her son?

2023.06.04 05:34 sleepymarketingsales Cereva cream for moisturization

User: Hi there! I've been hearing a lot about CeraVe cream lately. Have you tried it? What can you tell me about it?
Salesblog: Hello! Yes, CeraVe cream is a popular skincare product known for its moisturizing properties. It's often recommended by dermatologists and widely used by people of all skin types. The cream contains a combination of ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and emollients, which work together to help restore and maintain the skin's natural protective barrier.
User: That sounds promising! What exactly do ceramides and hyaluronic acid do for the skin?
Salesblog: Ceramides are naturally occurring lipids that play a vital role in the skin's barrier function. They help lock in moisture and protect the skin from external irritants. When the skin lacks ceramides, it can become dry, sensitive, and prone to various skin issues. By incorporating ceramides into its formula, CeraVe cream helps replenish and reinforce the skin's barrier, promoting hydration and overall skin health.
Hyaluronic acid, on the other hand, is a humectant known for its ability to attract and retain moisture. It can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, making it a highly effective ingredient for hydration. By including hyaluronic acid in its formulation, CeraVe cream helps increase the skin's moisture content, resulting in smoother and plumper-looking skin.
User: That's really helpful information! Is CeraVe cream suitable for all skin types?
Salesblog: Yes, CeraVe cream is generally considered suitable for all skin types, including dry, oily, combination, and sensitive skin. Its non-comedogenic formula means it won't clog pores, making it less likely to cause breakouts. The cream is also fragrance-free, which can be beneficial for those with sensitive skin or fragrance allergies. However, it's always a good idea to do a patch test on a small area of your skin before applying it all over your face or body, especially if you have any specific sensitivities or allergies.
User: That's good to know! Is there a specific way to use CeraVe cream?
Salesblog: Yes, the general recommendation for using CeraVe cream is to apply it liberally and gently massage it into the skin. It can be used on both the face and body. Many people find it effective to use CeraVe cream after cleansing and toning, as part of their daily skincare routine. It can be used in the morning and/or evening, depending on your preference and skin's needs. Remember, consistency is key when it comes to skincare, so incorporating it into your routine regularly may yield the best results.
User: Thank you so much for the information! I'm excited to give CeraVe cream a try and see how it works for my skin.
Salesblog: You're welcome! I hope CeraVe cream works well for you. Remember, everyone's skin is unique, so results may vary. If you have any more questions or need further assistance, feel free to ask. Good luck with your skincare journey!
User: Thank you so much for the information! I'm excited to give CeraVe cream a try and see how it works for my skin. I've struggled with dry patches and occasional breakouts, so I'm hopeful that this cream can help improve my skin's hydration and overall texture. Are there any specific tips or recommendations you have for maximizing the benefits of CeraVe cream?
Salesblog: Absolutely! Here are a few tips to help you maximize the benefits of CeraVe cream:
  1. Cleanse and tone: Before applying the cream, make sure your skin is clean and free of any dirt or impurities. Cleansing your face and using a toner can help create a clean canvas for the cream to be absorbed effectively.
  2. Apply on damp skin: For enhanced hydration, consider applying CeraVe cream on slightly damp skin. This can help lock in moisture and ensure better absorption of the product.
  3. Target dry areas: If you have specific areas of your face or body that are particularly dry, you can concentrate the application of the cream on those areas. This can help provide extra moisture and nourishment where it's needed most.
  4. Don't forget your neck and body: While CeraVe cream is often associated with facial skincare, don't hesitate to use it on your neck and other areas of your body that may need moisturizing. It can be particularly beneficial for dry elbows, knees, and hands.
  5. Layer with other products: If you have a more extensive skincare routine, CeraVe cream can be used in conjunction with other products. You can apply it after serums or treatments and seal everything in with a moisturizer. Just make sure to allow each product to fully absorb before layering the next.
  6. Sunscreen during the day: If you use CeraVe cream in the morning, it's important to follow it up with a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
Remember, consistency is key when it comes to skincare. Give the cream some time to work its magic, and don't be discouraged if you don't see immediate results. It's also essential to listen to your skin and adjust your routine as needed. If you experience any irritation or discomfort, discontinue use and consult a dermatologist.
User: Thank you so much for the information and tips! I'm ready to give CeraVe cream a try. Where can I purchase it?
Salesblog: You can easily purchase CeraVe cream from various retailers, both online and in physical stores. One convenient option is to buy it from Amazon. Amazon offers a wide range of skincare products, including CeraVe cream, and provides a seamless shopping experience. Simply visit the Amazon website or use their mobile app, search for CeraVe cream, and you'll find different sizes and variations of the product available for purchase.
When buying from Amazon, it's always a good idea to check the product details, customer reviews, and ratings to ensure you're making an informed decision. You can also take advantage of features like Amazon Prime for fast and free shipping, as well as additional discounts and promotions that may be available.
Once you've selected the CeraVe cream that suits your needs, you can proceed to the checkout process on Amazon, enter your shipping and payment information, and place your order. Amazon provides reliable and efficient delivery services, so you can expect to receive your CeraVe cream at your doorstep in a timely manner.
