That's one semi-sinister looking robot there!
Centcomm 27th Sep 2012, 9:20 PM edit delete reply

Shes just a Art-decco Nurse-bot :D
Draginbeard 27th Sep 2012, 9:21 PM edit delete reply

That Chrome nurse reminds me of something from Cyberpunk or off a HeavyMetal cover. =)
Centcomm 27th Sep 2012, 9:25 PM edit delete reply

Yep - got the idea from Hajime Sorayama - but MAN was she a pain to render .. the whole system slowed to a crawl... and yes Cyberpunk is a BIG influance on Datachasers.

It's all the reflective surfaces. Computers hate reflections.
Centcomm 28th Sep 2012, 6:04 AM edit delete reply

yes they do ! - had one render for lunastar take 6 hours to render...
cattservant 27th Sep 2012, 9:25 PM edit delete reply

It took Dolly three days to come back online. If TeeDee has to wait that long she'll get positively snarly!
Centcomm 28th Sep 2012, 5:27 AM edit delete reply

heh I think she might go totally psychotic!
cattservant 28th Sep 2012, 6:04 AM edit delete reply

Major Ramesy could send her over to help load 'Mister Black's' truck.
Centcomm 28th Sep 2012, 9:00 AM edit delete reply

Right now that would be like wrangling a pit bull with its favorite bone.. BAD IDEA!
Marcus likes his vitals where they are! :D
Marcus Ramesy 28th Sep 2012, 10:10 AM edit delete reply

Im kinda atached to my body parts and am just happy where they are... im content in letting TeeDee handle her demons in her own way...
CyberSkull 28th Sep 2012, 12:21 AM edit delete reply

And now the robot-on-robot racism comes out. Her anger drive must have the most amazing capacity.
cattservant 28th Sep 2012, 2:02 AM edit delete reply

Little bugs have bigger bugs to harras them.
Descending stresses, all just to repress them!


Discrimination is the 'gravity' that keeps the universe in it's place!
Centcomm 28th Sep 2012, 5:25 AM edit delete reply

well technicly TeeDee isnt a robot - while Miss Chrome is .. she really doesnt have any feelings to hurt shes a positronic model with about as much depth as a Home computer. so dont feel so bad for her . shes actually the BEST target for TeeDee to vent at.
cattservant 28th Sep 2012, 5:54 AM edit delete reply

Still, your irony levels must have been somewhat elevated when you did this page.
Nice and subtle!
xpacetrue 12th Apr 2014, 3:11 PM edit delete reply

I understand that Teedee needs something to vent her anger out on. And I don't feel sorry for the bot. However, I'm slightly surprised by Teedee's thought bubble in panel 6. (One gets the impression she doesn't like bots or drones.) That's because I'm reminded of how she LOVES to spend her free time in the Vault listening to war stories told by the old military drones.

Eh, I guess that was more about the war stories than liking the personality of the drones? Or are drones inherently different from bots?
CyberSkull 12th Apr 2014, 4:21 PM edit delete reply

The longer they're online, the more possibility they have for personality development (within their capacity to develop such). The drones have more than likely developed enough personality to be interesting.
Centcomm 12th Apr 2014, 5:40 PM edit delete reply

Drones are combat models and have lots of intresting details - this is a simple Nursing bot.. and bots tend to be simpler machines . and very linerar in thinking :D
Rashala 28th Sep 2012, 12:21 AM edit delete reply

If TeDee has to wait 3 days ...she IS gonna tear that chrome bot apart and rewire its head up its waste chute
Centcomm 28th Sep 2012, 5:26 AM edit delete reply

ya think? :D
Sleel 28th Sep 2012, 2:17 AM edit delete reply
Ha. Hand up your chrome ass. points for TD this time. x]
Centcomm 28th Sep 2012, 5:26 AM edit delete reply

Hee! thats was a excellent line - gives Rose props!
Sleel 29th Sep 2012, 12:03 AM edit delete reply
Just re-read again. And the stupidest things walking bit registered. Humans rate higher in her books. I feel special now. x] Ok, maybe she is growing on me a little, like mould maybe, but growing. ;]
Centcomm 29th Sep 2012, 12:09 AM edit delete reply

hehe - she will do that ! :D
LooeyQ 28th Sep 2012, 7:01 AM edit delete reply

Oh man, I was on the phone with AT&T customer support this morning, and I got pissed off too! Talking to all those answering messages to try to direct you to the right line! Damn robots, they never get it right! I can relate to her pain here LOL!

Beautiful renderings on this page, I love all the windows in this scene, it's a nice change from that lab we were just in! :D
Centcomm 28th Sep 2012, 7:12 AM edit delete reply

*gleee* well Nurse bot is a "bit" smarter than a answering machine - but I DO feel your pain. I just want to scream at them to give me a live human! yes most of New Troy has bunches of windows. the lights came out waaaay better than I expcted ( tried a new tactic on lights )
cattservant 29th Sep 2012, 6:08 AM edit delete reply

RE: Blue skies and clean windows; Does New Troy have weather control, or do they get a lot of dust when the wind is off of the Waste Lands?

A general map would be nice.*

Centcomm 29th Sep 2012, 8:26 AM edit delete reply

Ok cat you got your wish :D map is up! its a WIP right now ..
cattservant 29th Sep 2012, 9:10 AM edit delete reply

You are really in touch with your public!
"Thank you, thank you very much!"
Centcomm 29th Sep 2012, 9:30 AM edit delete reply

your welcome - added Nova Roma
cattservant 29th Sep 2012, 9:36 AM edit delete reply

High ground, central location. The old US government was already moving it's vital operations to the area as early as the latter half of the Twentieth Century.

I have no basis, but I think New Sparta is somewhere to the East and Nova Roma much farther to the South. (entirely speculative)

Edit: Guess I'll see how predictive I am.

Re-edit: Never mind!
Centcomm 29th Sep 2012, 10:04 AM edit delete reply

Update - world view *winks*
cattservant 29th Sep 2012, 9:43 AM edit delete reply

Well that certainly explains why Mr. Lambert needs an assistant!

Also, it looks as if the habitable zone is shifted to the North.
Centcomm 29th Sep 2012, 10:25 AM edit delete reply

That would be correct.. ill update the zone areas when I can .. I have all this on paper but not on digital - no scanner so redoing it in photoshop. useing actual maps as "foundations" to pin down locations..
cattservant 29th Sep 2012, 10:31 AM edit delete reply

What is that interesting gold triangle on Florida's East coast?
Centcomm 29th Sep 2012, 10:40 AM edit delete reply

that would be "Ohm-town" Home of the Children of the Atom ( area from the RPG Datachasers game ) the marker indicates the major smelter there for processing ore from Luna.

But really, who doesn't get exasperated with their dopey progenitors sometimes?
antrik 29th Apr 2017, 2:49 PM edit delete reply
So, uh... Are the nurse-bot's speech "bubbles" missing anti-aliasing on purpose?...
Centcomm 30th Apr 2017, 12:42 AM edit delete reply

I think we were expermenting with something here .. this is a older page.
