Picking Up Speed (Forward Momentum Review)

Mod Playlist
Forward Momentum is a mod about a different MC. He still grew up alongside Sayori, but he’s not you, nor is he a blank slate. You can’t even give him a name at the start. He’s his own person and we are only borrowing his perspective to view his story. The mod is linear and reads like a slice of life, but there’s definitely a plot to it and the demo has set up quite a few things already.
In terms of presentation, it’s fairly standard. There are some new BGs and expressions used, but nothing unusual compared to other mods. The big sell here is the writing, which holds up remarkably well. The MC’s personality puts a whole new spin on the Act 1 formula, to the point where his joining the club feels completely different. While the main four dokis are still present, MC is easily the most interesting character in the mod.
This is due entirely to his unique perspective and the mystery that surrounds him. He’s introduced as something of a loser. There are times when he’s painfully inadequate, like when he enters/leaves his house through the window due to the door being blocked by garbage. His defining trait is apathy and he’s a very jaded individual. His only real friend is Sayori, and he has nothing but disdain for everyone else around him (to be fair, his school is full of toxic assholes). He spends his days feeling demotivated and being content that no one ever notices him.
However, in spite of this, he has moments where he tries to be better. He doesn’t think he feels obligated to others, but time and again, he overcomes his own slothfulness to contribute to the club. It’s not that he doesn’t care; just that it’s easier for him if he doesn’t. He tries not to let down Sayori, and even takes an interest in the other club members after a while. In each case, things don’t quite work out, but a fair part of the fault for that rests squarely on his shoulders.
But the mod isn’t just about his time in the club and his failed romances. There are flashbacks to moments he spent with another girl named Kamuko, who is a person he doesn’t seem to be in touch with anymore. Whatever happened between them, it’s a major secret of his, and it’s something he actively represses. Although we share his perspective, there are things his inner monologue refuses to acknowledge or explain. In fact, we don’t even know his real name. It isn’t mentioned a single time, he’s just called “Him” at first, and the club eventually calls him “Secretary” since that’s the role Monika gave him.
So this MC has a shady past of some kind, and the mod drops little hints of things as it goes along. It all serves to create this intrigue that envelops his character. His thoughts and actions can be frustrating to watch, but you know there has to be a reason buried deep inside him somewhere. Kamuko might be at the heart of it, but for as long as the demo is, we can only speculate, which is good because that’s how a demo should hook you.
As for the rest of the cast, they feel about right. Sometimes Sayori is a little too wacky, but I think those parts are only played up for humor. Her interactions with MC are a lot of fun, and she contrasts well with his generally dour disposition. The rest seem just like themselves, although some things may feel a little questionable. They each have their own bits of intrigue as well. On occasion, we occupy Sayori’s point of view and learn more about how she feels toward MC. Monika has a bunch of school rumors surrounding her, but they don’t add up with what she says, but that could also just be a front that she constructed, so nobody really knows what’s up except her. Natsuki only really gets one scene that implies something’s amiss with her, but a small implication is better than nothing. Toward the end of the demo, we get a glimpse of what’s going on with Yuri, but there may be more to that as well.
So far, I think this mod is doing an amazing job. It’s not that popular as far as I know, but it definitely deserves more attention. The writing is solid and effective. There are occasional typos, but nothing too extensive. It’s well-paced and manages a variety of different tones. It knows when to be silly and when to be serious, and it’s presenting a narrative in a way that keeps you wondering just what will happen next. I don’t know when a new chapter may be ready (or the full version), but it’s something I’m looking forward to.
While it has a great thing going, it’s a story yet untold, so I can’t make an official call just yet. All things considered, I give it a…

2021.09.21 05:12 Faded_Purp Idk, Be You

They don’t want the real you they wanna pick and choose
Faking how you’re feeling taking pills to hide the blues
They would drop you in a heart beat if you showed the real you
You gotta hide all of that real shit so they don’t hit the snooze
You would lose them if you were a hundred percent trust me
Makeup, haircut, a new face to hide your sadness that’s unhealthy
You should be you, do you, fuck the critics and the cunts they can blow me
All the haters they can suck me dry while I take a shit little bitch
If you self harm for them they don’t deserve you bitch you’re precious
You should know you’re worth it and you got a godly essence
I love you they love you not for who you are but for who you play
I was born in the south we were afraid to come out as gay
Trust me friend I feel you I know you must feel some type of way
Privacy is dead so just be open how you feel it’s all okay
If they matter then they won’t judge if they judge you gotta get away

2021.09.21 05:12 sugarcrumpet Structural Engineer?

Hi fellow Indianapolis-ites. Does anyone have a recommendation for a residential structural engineer? We bought our first home in February 2020 and have discovered significant foundation issues we need help with. We’ve talked with a few foundation contractors but would like to talk with an engineer before we make a choice in how to move forward. Any advice is appreciated, we’re kind of freaking out since this was not caught in the buying process and inspection. :-/

2021.09.21 05:12 biggerwanker TMC2209 sensorless Z-probe

Has anyone got sensorless z-probing working? I know it's not recommend but I wanted to give it a go to prove to myself what a bad idea it is. I'm one of those people that doesn't listen, I have to make the mistakes myself.
I've got a BTT SKR1.3, I have the DIAG jumper installed in the right place and the UART pins are set. I've set the Driver_SGTH set to 255 but the steppers don't stop. I've had this working before for X and Y so I'm wondering if there's a bug with using the probe:virtual_endstop with a tmc_2209_stepper_z:virtual_endstop in the probe section.
I have the BTT TMC2209 steppers and have used them before for sensorless homing on X and Y so I know they work.
I've gone through the sensorless setup instructions with a fine tooth comb. Any ideas? I would have thought that with a sensitivity that high that the steppers wouldn't maKe it more than a couple of steps. I'm wondering if there is something up with the DIAG pin.

2021.09.21 05:12 bonhomme7 The only believer

Hi everyone! This is my first time using this app and I have no where else to share this info where people could agree so I guess I’ll post it here.
This whole pandemic my family’s belief about it have been wishy washy. In the beginning my brother did believe in it and took it very seriously especially since he is fighting MS. Then a month passes and they have become non believers. You know posting those memes and blasting it everywhere atleast once a day.
I have to admit I have almost let myself become one of those Covidiots,after over a year of listening to my family’s bs, I finally did my own research and decided to trust science and get the vaccine. Fortunately I was able to move out a bit further away from my family so I can be away from their conspiracy theories.
Recently I have gotten news that my brother and his wife are expecting another child. I have also gotten the news that I am not allowed to see them or my nephews since I am vaccinated and I will “shed spike proteins”
I’m just curious if anyone else is going through any of this and if so can you offer some advice on how to deal with this and not to stress about it. I would appreciate it. Thank you!
