    Explorer Tactical (scouting orb) is back in the news:

    Next month, 100 US police departments will start deploying a new, ball-shaped camera that can be thrown into dangerous areas to scout out life-threatening situations.

    The system, dubbed Explorer Tactical, is a camera contained in a rubberized ball the size of a grapefruit, with six recessed lenses feeding data into the system, coupled with 40W LEDs for lighting.

    Software mates the six viewpoints into a panoramic view of the environment and feeds it back to an officer's smartphone via an internal Wi-Fi hotspot.

    Key to the device is the image-stitching software used to take the feeds from the six lenses and merge them into something useful. The Explorer can build one full 360-degree panorama per second and the internal Wi-Fi can send this back to an Android or iOS device from 60 meters away.

    I'll try his more natural shooting/aiming approach tomorrow at the club, this is IMHO more fundamental than his (still impressive or downright insane) speed shooting skills.

His own reply makes this more or less clear, fortunately: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iLTA43MBuA

    Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, up in northern Europe is one of the most Thief-like places I've ever been to

    Saw these gorgeous candlesticks at an antique shop today. Unfortunately, they cost about $1000 each

    In case someone needs inspiration for some new chests, locks and keys (and much more), have a look at the current Herrmann Historica auction: http://www.hermann-historica.de/aukt...b=kat71_AW.txt (apparently only a few in this section have English captions, in case of doubt just ask me)

    I particularly like the 2nd image. I'm pretty sure I spotted some handy woodwork there.

    It has been posted, but it's nice to see it from other angles.

    It'd also be nice to see it when the cuckoo pops out.

    I made a trip to Toulouse and Carcassonne a few weeks ago and that was great, not least architecture-wise. Carcassonne is really impressive, despite (or maybe because of?) the Disney-like restoration conducted by Vilolet-le-Duc in the 19th century. The rooftops of the medieval town's houses really invite to traversing them (cf. around 1:50 in the video I found). The city of Toulouse has a lot of nice places as well, including old and quirky half-timbered houses and beautiful churches, some of them mixing different styles.

    Thanks for the share! I checked it out in google street view. It's wonderful. I am tempted to do a 1:1 remaking of it for my first release. I just wonder if I have to wall it into sections, or can I get away with looking at all the rooftops at once. I would compress textures and use newdark LOD on the objects to help. Still I guess I could just do it and if it lags badly I will throw up the blocking walls.

    There was another place I was looking at, that would have been on the slant, but like this place; Mont Saint-Michel.

    What holds me back is going original in that I like really high building and have a idea for my city to be ancient brick on the bottom, tudor mid, and top being more modern.

    I always thought the male "C3PO" servant looked a lot like David Byrne of Talking Heads.

    Two photos made by a friend of mine a few years ago. A neglected Classicist style manor house and the ruins of its staff building and storage rooms. Spooky-looking place, but I bet there'd be plenty of rewarding loot on its grounds for any curious taffer.

    You may not be wrong. I found that a good many of the faces look like famous people. I know some unused skins in TDP was the faces of Angus Macfadyen and Bruce Campbell.
