and before any one mentions it .. Dolly and Doctor silvers glasses are Dynamic as in they change opacity at the drop of a hat to shield the wearer from bright light or to project info on the inside for the user .. they can also become clear as glass as needed..

Some how distrubing.
Mark_L_A 23rd Jul 2015, 9:10 PM edit delete reply

Extremely Disturbing. And yet well past time for Dolly and CeCi to get into action to get Lynn and hopefully Acantha O-U-T of there Safely.
Sheela 23rd Jul 2015, 11:06 PM edit delete reply

Well, it *should* be disturbing, when you set a killbot on the loose.

Lucky them, that Dolly is no longer a killbot too.
Not that that is gonna stop her from kicking ass. >_<
Centcomm 24th Jul 2015, 7:18 AM edit delete reply

Yep it should be disturbing ... Ceci is ready to rock :D
jamie59 23rd Jul 2015, 9:09 PM edit delete reply

Sounds like Ceci found some new modules she didn't know she had.
Bet she's the most dangerous 'droid in the city now.

It's show time! \o/

Ceci is rocking one hell of an "I'm killing everything in front of me" look. I do believe it is now time for gratuitous violence.
Sheela 23rd Jul 2015, 11:02 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, no doubt about that - And Decimus has been so kind as to line up a lot of targets for CeCi to play with.

CeCi is still in there, among all the kill protocols 'n' stuff.
But just because she can be both cute and fluffy, does not mean she will hold back.
Centcomm 24th Jul 2015, 7:17 AM edit delete reply

Yep Violence is coming .. trust me .. :D
Dragonrider 23rd Jul 2015, 9:14 PM edit delete reply

All combat modes online. Lets go kick some butt Mommy!

OK that's classic, props on the script.

Should we observe a moment of silence for Democlus, the first victim of Nox's murderous spree?

BTW: Ceci has never looked sexier than she does when she goes total bad ass killbot.
Sheela 23rd Jul 2015, 11:05 PM edit delete reply

To be fair, we don't know how good Democlus is ... there's probably a really good reason why Maxus and Rose put him there ... *and* gave him a brandnew armor to play with.
I don't think Nox will have an easy time with him.
But then, ultimately, I think she's supposed to collide with CeCi and Dolly.
Tokyo Rose 24th Jul 2015, 1:17 AM edit delete reply

"there's probably a really good reason why Maxus and Rose put him there"

Maxus "and Rose"? Huh?

{edit}Probably the time when he made a positive impact on the Cassians was Sword of Damocles...

Yep he impressed Malati there ( that was the version Victoria 3 Malati ) I liked the Victoria 6 version I made :D

hehe thats all Rose on that part of the Dialouge .. and wait till you see her in action :D
Sheela 24th Jul 2015, 12:58 PM edit delete reply

Ah, which one was the Victoria 6 variation ?
velvetsanity 24th Jul 2015, 4:04 PM edit delete reply

Her more recent appearances in the comic, Sheela. Victoria is the primary basis for almost all female figures in Daz Studio (the main program Cent uses to make the comic). Victoria 6 is the most recent version she's using, while Victoria 3 and 4 were the versions she was using when our wonderful storytellers first started making the comic. V7 just came out, but it will be a while before any characters based on it appear (if ever), partly because there isn't much selection for clothing yet, partly because it'd require redoing skins from scratch (and I have no desire to listen to Cent freaking out about that like she did when she had to redo all the characters after the big computer crash), and partly because it's designed for a completely different rendering engine than every other figure available.
Sheela 24th Jul 2015, 4:41 PM edit delete reply

I see. I don't know much about Daz studio.
But that's pretty interesting. :)
Centcomm 24th Jul 2015, 4:45 PM edit delete reply

Dolly , Lynn and Acantha and Ceci and Arianna are all Victoria 4.6 along with Doctor Silver
the new Kali and Malati are Victoria 5 and 6
Democelus and Mister Black and Marcus are all Mike 4 - Galina from Luna Star is a victoria 5 :D

and yeah victoria 7 can just .. bite me. i have no intrest in it as of yet. period stupid iray bullshit

Haegan2005 23rd Jul 2015, 9:46 PM edit delete reply

Cent, this is scary on many levels...

A focused Cici and a fully armed Dolly ready to roll to the rescue. Any resistance is going to show the world what being a RED shirt really means!

(I just realized that that can be read one of several ways... )
Sheela 23rd Jul 2015, 10:59 PM edit delete reply

If their shirts aren't red already, they are about to be.

Dolly is the extremely combat experienced lateral thinker, and CeCi is the raw firepower.
Centcomm 24th Jul 2015, 7:21 AM edit delete reply

Yep now do remember Dolly is NOT Mil-sec She is a "bodyguard" Yes shes has combat training and a lot of practical experience. and she has flat out determination. Ceci.. well Ceci was designed to take lives.. in the dozens.
Sheela 24th Jul 2015, 12:59 PM edit delete reply

Well, to be fair, even the weakest guardian model, is still gonna be pretty tough.

Not to mention that Calliope build it specifically for her, so I doubt she has skimped anywhere.
Calliope also claimed it was her best work yet.
Centcomm 24th Jul 2015, 4:43 PM edit delete reply

Actually.. Calliope modified Dollys Model 3 body .. now Dollys model five body is a totally different story and is a total wild card :D
Haegan2005 25th Jul 2015, 1:28 AM edit delete reply

I suspect that Dolly's body cannot move as fast nor have the same strength that Cici has. However Dolly has experience I think that will make up for it. Dolly will be the squad leader and Cici is the squad assault weapon holder.

Cici is rampant destruction, under Dolly's control and that was intentional on Centcomm's part.
That one guy 26th Jul 2015, 8:47 AM edit delete reply
Only in the dozens? I figured hundreds, minimum.
Draginbeard 23rd Jul 2015, 11:05 PM edit delete reply

Awesome! Go Dolly!
Sheela 23rd Jul 2015, 11:10 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, I'm rather curious to see what she can do with her fancy new body.

A test by fire, so-to-speak, it will be interesting, that's for sure.
I'm thinking that it's more dangerous than most people think, even if it's a bit weak in pure combat.
Centcomm 24th Jul 2015, 7:22 AM edit delete reply

I wish we could throw all the pages out there so you guys could see faster.. but we have to follow the plot and script and a 3 a week schedule.

Please, for the love of dread Cthulhu, let Lynn get to CeCi BEFORE CeCi finds out that Acantha's Douchemus' sister.
Sheela 23rd Jul 2015, 11:33 PM edit delete reply

CeCi already knows that Lynn is hanging out with Acantha, and what she looks like ... After all, she checked up the gossip sites when CeCi and Dolly arrived in Nova Roma.

Second Centurion: "I dunno, but she shouldn't be here. 'Stop right there, you!'.
VOORP! VOORP!

Is no one else mourning CeCi? According to Marcus' comments on page H-9K (17 June 2013) just signed her death warrant!

By activating her Black Angel skill set she has ensured her destruction. Marcus indicated that every time skills are loaded, it damages the Angel's brain until it completely fries. CeCi just activated ALL her Black Angel skills. She just became a mayfly with an Atomic Vortex Cannon! She is going to destroy whatever gets in her way, but only until she destroys everything that makes her CeCi. ;-(
HiFranc 24th Jul 2015, 5:53 AM edit delete reply

I just read that comment but it says that "each time a skill is loaded" so the pessimist in me fears that you're right but the optimist in me hopes that, as all the skills were loaded at once, it counts as one occasion rather than several.

{edit} Here's a link to H9K...

Centcomm 24th Jul 2015, 7:11 AM edit delete reply

Ceci is a bit of a wild card here - for one shes not a "Standard" Black Angel and while loading skill sets IS damaging to a synthbrain and it does add up Ceci has only loaded one set .. ( her melee package ) the Comabt modules shes talking about are her onboard weapons and defenses as well as her plasma caster

Doctor Silver placed additional protective code around "Ceci" to help keep her from burning out. that ,means Ceci may not be able to load all of her skills but she has a ton of them anyway :D
Stormwind13 24th Jul 2015, 7:31 AM edit delete reply

Sounds to me like CentComm is TRYING to not get hunted down early. Going to wait and see, but expecting the worst. CeCi is going to have to continually load (and unload) skills to USE those weapons she just activated!

I say we STILL hunt CentComm down! ::readies pitchfork and torch::
DLKmusic 24th Jul 2015, 12:15 PM edit delete reply

Don't have any pitchforks or torches, Stormwind. How bout I put on a black mask, grab the cheapest guitar I own, and join in as "El Ka-Bong". Nothing interferes with an AI more than an out of tune guitar!

Wait... Uhm, Hi, Rose... but... but....***sigh*** Yes, ma'am.... no ma'am... Yes ma'am... I understand... I... I... I.... I WILL follow the plan....

Sorry Stormwind, no El Ka-Bong today... IT'S NOT PART OF THE PLAN...

Marcus Ramesy 24th Jul 2015, 8:20 AM edit delete reply

Im hoping that the safeguards and code modifications that Dr. Silver did will help her out and make it so she can complete her mission but as was mentioned.. she is no longer a "standard" black angel with the modifications to her code and the dialing back of watch dog, there are a lot of unknown factors.. Dr. Silver would be best to explain the short term ramifications of the mission at hand.. I trust her abilities and if she says she has it under control..I trust its take care of.

Tokyo Rose 24th Jul 2015, 6:53 PM edit delete reply

I swear, at some point Cent and I really have to have a lengthy discussion about this...
Stormwind13 24th Jul 2015, 8:52 PM edit delete reply

About wearing plaid Rose? Not really the color scheme for either of you (in my opinion). :-D
Tokyo Rose 25th Jul 2015, 12:24 AM edit delete reply

Cent and I had that discussion.

No, Ceci is not going to melt her brain; she has not turned into a ticking pink time bomb counting down to complete neural dissolution. We have some confusion here as to what's meant by "loading a skill set".

When a standard Black Angel is sent on a mission, she's usually loaded with a number of different skill sets--"tinker", "tailor", "soldier", "sailor", etc. The Angel can switch between these sets as needed to carry out her mission. Since these sets are fairly complete, essentially being different "personas", switching between them causes gradual (note, gradual) degradation in the synth-brain as it's forced to quickly adapt to new pathways, sometimes several times over in the course of a mission.

It's very slightly like having a computer loaded with multiple operating systems, each optimized for very different uses, able to boot up into whichever O/S is desired to complete a task.

Ceci is not taking on a new persona--she's not "changing her O/S". She's just loading a set of "how to beat ass" applications and the "drivers" that govern her combat modules.
Centcomm 25th Jul 2015, 12:40 AM edit delete reply

making in clear that me and Rose are totally on the same page here just sometimes we say things a little differently .. again to stress a point .. Ceci is in no way in danger from "synth-brain " meltdown she has currently all her skills and no need to change to a "different personality "

its the total and massive switch out of personality that does "gradual" damage as the brain tries to format itself. in any case .. what rose said :D
HiFranc 25th Jul 2015, 8:46 AM edit delete reply

However, in Ten seconds..., Dr Silver says, "That ought to stabilize her for now. She'll need a full upgrade later on, though."

What will happen if she doesn't get that upgrade? How long does she have? How comprehensive an upgrade does she need?
HiFranc 25th Jul 2015, 8:40 AM edit delete reply

Thank you for the explanation.
Sheela 25th Jul 2015, 3:20 PM edit delete reply

I'm thinking that ws in regards to her morality framework.
Basically, if she cannot get the upgrade, she'll have to learn morals on her own.
And I'm sure Dolly could help her expand the limited one she already has.

Just remembered something. When ALL of CeCi's protocols come online, it starts to damage her Synth Brain. Unless it's been retconned, CeCi's full activation started a timer to her own demise.

ETA: NVM just woke up and should have read the new comments.

EETA: Nope re-read. CeCi says "ALL combat Modules online" That doesn't mean just her Melee, that means All of her Combat modules are on. Which means that there is going to be "SOME" damage to her Synth brain. What we don't know is what Dr. Silver's Mods will do to negate or lessen the effects of those mods all coming online.

Mark_L_A 24th Jul 2015, 10:07 AM edit delete reply

Stromwind, I wonder that if Dolly knew that doing this would damage CeCi, would she try to keep CeCi from using all of those modules, to try to save her.

I think that if Dolly DID know, she would order CeCi to limit which modules she would load, even if it meant Dolly herself might fail or get destroyed herself.

Dolly is a Protector a Guardian. And even though she is driven to save Lynn, she wouldn't want to do it at the expense of a true innocent.
DLKmusic 24th Jul 2015, 11:19 AM edit delete reply

After Dolly gearing up a few pages ago, I'm not sure I would agree about Dolly protecting the innocents, Mark. She's made it clear that she's willing to tear a hole through anything and anyone that stands between her and Lynn.

Further, Ceci hardly qualifies as an innocent, by any standard. However, that doesn't mean she's disposable, either.
Mark_L_A 24th Jul 2015, 12:02 PM edit delete reply

No, Dolly specified, if someone raised a hand or weapon against her, she would put them down. If they didn't she would just let them be. That is what I meant by innocents.

And I think tha if Dolly thought CeCi would DEFINITIVELY be "Killed" rendered inoperative by loading all of her packages, she would insist that CeCi loaded only those necessary and not all the packages to try to save her.
DLKmusic 24th Jul 2015, 12:34 PM edit delete reply

Actually, it was Doc Silver that said that (Scorched earth, http://datachasers.thecomicseries.com/comics/1241/).

Dolly said "Anyone who gets in my way dies, and I don't care much who it is." (Busted, http://datachasers.thecomicseries.com/comics/1256/).
That was one of the few lines from one of the "good guys" that made my blood run cold. I remember it well. I understand it, and would probably feel the same in her shoes, but that doesn't stop it from being cold blooded.

And remember, she was willing to take down Amalthea, too, who actually does qualify as an innocent.
Sheela 24th Jul 2015, 4:49 PM edit delete reply

Well, we *are* talking about Dolly here.

Stormwind13 24th Jul 2015, 6:20 PM edit delete reply

Yeah Sheela. Dolly is prepared to kill; however, I just can't see her indiscriminately killing people. If they are actively opposing her she'll turn them into dog food. Otherwise, she'll just go around, over or possibly through. They are more like mobile obstacles than hostiles to be killed.
Mark_L_A 25th Jul 2015, 10:01 PM edit delete reply

DLK This bothered me so I went back again, and the next page (http://datachasers.thecomicseries.com/comics/1257) Dolly says "If they raise a weapon, they go down. That's all there is to it. I can't risk being injured and slowed down."

So she is limiting herself only to active combatants, not innocents.

I stand corrected, Mark... I guess I was so stunned by what she said on pg 1256 when I first read it, that what she said on the next page didn't fully register for me.

It's not some score keeping thing. I was just concerned I myself had missed something or had misremembered it.

Then inner workings of the Black Angels is Classified, and not general knowledge of how it works... skill booster programs are know to do damage to the synth brain and are not used in great amounts by any one.. because of the brain damage that can be caused by excessive use.. Black Angels have disposable synth brains so its generally not an issue in the damage that is done to them during the missions.. there is a certain percentage of degradation that is allowed and safeguards are in place to prevent the angel from exceeding those thresholds... that is what the watchdog is there for is to determine if and when the need to exceed those thresholds are needed to compete the mission... for the moment.. Ceci is not in any danger of exceeding that threshold because her combat skills are already loaded...the combat mods are online... very little extra has been pulled from the skills library that wasn't already there from previous encounter.... what has happened is that watchdog has gone in to mission mode and is ready to load skills in as needed and provided mission intell and the situation changes

This strikes me as something like the beginning of a race, but it's not any runner jumping the gun, but the officiator shooting the gun much too soon. "Runners to your marks." *Bang* And that shot happens even before the runners are at their marks. Nobody is ready, but it's time to go now.

I just saw a vote incentive (still waiting for Teedee on a Murderturd), and you mention "Galina Algorithm". Is it explained anywhere or will be?
Stormwind13 25th Jul 2015, 6:09 AM edit delete reply

Read Luna Star, Cperka. That should explain it fairly quickly. :-D
HiFranc 25th Jul 2015, 8:38 AM edit delete reply

I would say read it anyway because it's a good story.

Up until the past few pages of DC, I've liked LS more than DC.
Cperka 26th Jul 2015, 1:51 AM edit delete reply

I read all of it, but don't remember that algorithm
Tokyo Rose 26th Jul 2015, 2:37 AM edit delete reply

@Cperka

That algorithm wasn't mentioned in "Luna Star" because Galina Kotko was the base for it--it literally didn't exist yet during the story's time frame. It's used for language translation and code decryption.

That's what I figured out. Thanks for clarifying

ROFLMAO!!!!!

Dolly's playlist also needs to include (insert 10 Elvis Presley songs here).

Am I the only one that gets slightly turned on when Ceci calls Dolly 'Mommy?' >.>
