    Y'know, Loup was right. That system does sound boring. Why on earth would they want to live in something so static?

    • 3 weeks ago

      Because the current system is unfair. They want people to achieve things on the basis of their hard work, not belief or magic. At least that's the explanation we've been given by Shell, I think?

        A system like that would also be purely deterministic. The idea of hard work losing meaning somewhat when everyone's actions are preordained

            that's not really true, we've been given ample evidence to believe that what really drives the court is a desire for total control. They treat their members as pawns, experiment on children, and function as a strict technocracy. There will be nothing "fair" about the world built by such an instution.

              Yes but that mark in the ether was made via the New People, which came to be after years of scientific work and research by a non ether-able person.

              I don't have a problem with transgenderism, as long as it's not the sole facet of their character as it is with 99% of such characters.

                the court isn't an advocate for non-ether sensitives rights
                they just don't want to be retroactively uncreated by a god that spawned 2000 years ago, which is something that can happen at any time in a world with ether

                it means that despite being an MTF who is actively medically transitioning, they're choosing to keep presenting as a man (by way of baggy male clothes, hair not quite long enough to be suspect, and still going by a male name with male pronouns). Usually done because they're insecure about trying to present as a woman.

        It's not about fairness, dumb-dumbs. It's that the ether isn't subject to the scientific method. It can't be predicted based on observation and experiment, therefore it can't be controlled or integrated.

        I'm not entirely unsympathetic to the court; whether you realise it or not you'd absolutely hate it if a non-clockmaker God was constantly fiddling the laws of reality on an ad-hoc basis.

          Exactly reminder the Courts was founded with the idea of integrating magic and tech together, to form a better society. But the magic side was both unwilling and unable on a fundamental level to actually go thou with the plan.

          The court eventually accepted that if some random powered ether fool decided it did not like gravity and turned it off, both nobody could stop them and, and everybody would die.

          Would you want to live in a world where at any moment you could die without warning or recourse to punish the people that killed you. On a fundamental level coexistence is impossible when their is use a disparity of power between societies, it not a matter of if but only when you larger power destroys the smaller one, with the smaller one being every human in existence.

          The courts plans is basically the only way for humans to survive the next billion years, because they are doomed if they stay in the area dominated in Ether.

Don't expect to get the exact look I did as my local workflow is going to be radically different from Civitai's basic online prompter. Anyway 99% of your issue is just prompting. Pony is pretty idiosyncratic in it's tagging so if you don't know how to prompt it'll get a hot mess. This is the base tag I've been using for most of the GKC stuff, or similar.

                Don't overload it with tags like you see tons of people do, it's a waste of time. If you want to make it mory porny add rating_explicit to the positive, rating_safe to the negative. Flip for the reverse effect, there is also rating_questionable if you want ecchi. This is literally the first time using civitai's generator so I don't know what sort of upper limits there are on the quality you can get out if it.

                The only saving grave with AI is that it lacks human composition and scene setting. And the other nuances. Otherwise, this is hitting close. I wonder if someone could use it yet to make a gunnerkrigg comic page by putting art together.

                If you actually try with controlnets or depth-based stuff or even the caveman tech of img2img and in/outpainting you can bring human composition to it. Someone interested in putting in the effort could absolutely do it but I just do least effort shit because all I want out of AI is neuron activation.

                Yes and figuring out better ways to utilize those condition gates as well as wider parameters is improvement, the fundamental aspect of what AI is obviously isn't going to change without a total shift in the technology behind it. That's like saying that combustion engines haven't improved since the 1800s because they rely on the same underlying principles.

                I dont think you understand what you just said, which makes sense considering the lot of you arent programmers.

                There's nothing you can get more out of conditions gates than more gates. That isn't an improvement. This isn't some combustion engine that has one literal function. They are attempting to build a learning machine but dont realize that you can never emulate actually intelligence without an organic brain that isn't limited by something as primitive as 1s and 0s. Our decision making is made up of thousands of processes that machines cannot touch or impossible to simulate due to their organic nature. Again, unless they actually attach a working brain to their systems, it aint ever progressing past this.

                Nobody's suggesting that AI is anything but computational processes except (You) my man. I don't know if you've noticed but computers themselves have improved over the last 20 years despite being nothing more than increasingly sophisticated means of producing 1s and 0s. If you were honestly a programmer you'd know that, and you'd know that software has a tendency to improve in-step with computational gains. I don't even know how you can argue that AI hasn't improved when it's so clearly improved over the last 5 years by literally every definition of the word "improvement" when it comes to computing.

                Computer improving is a vertical process, not a lateral.

                Computers getting higher ram, cpu processing power, etc, pushes its speed and power, but does not increase its non computation capabilities (AI, thinking outside logic 1s and 0s, true randomness).

                Computers improving laterally would be what you need, which means expanding the makeup of what a computer is, which has not had much of an innovation in the past fifty years due to stagnation of innovation caused by no one having savings.

        If that's true it reflects very badly on Tom. This comic used to very good at enigmatic foreshadowing, but when it came to actually resolving the mysteries it set up it bungled badly, to the point where I don't think anyone really cares about future plot resolutions. That's usually a sign the author didn't have a clear idea of where the story is going when they started. If Tom knew what he was doing all along then he's just a bad writer.

          He didn't do enough drafts. He has said that the norn chapter was one of the earliest things he knew he wanted to do in the comic and it's the worst chapter in the comic. He just never did a second draft and couldn't kill his darlings. It's his first comic, so it's certainly understandable, but it sucks because it looked like it would all lead up to something amazing, particularly because gunnerkrigg is pretty impossible to predict because Tom loves subverting expectations, so fans would make their own theories that sometimes ended up being more exciting than the actual resolutions, which also really isn't Tom's fault. He's absolutely doing his best, has an amazing work ethic and really cares for what he's making, even after all this time and after doubtlessly an increase of negative feedback.

      He clearly has a case of explainintois where plot and story progression stalls completely so that every single thing can be explained in detail. See elgoon is shive for an example of a comic that suffered from this form the start.

      This is related to but different from drawmoneyoutis which the Order of the Stick suffer from. Where the author wastes time doing nothing important to get money.

      See everything up to the them dealing with Jennie, was relatively fast paced and good. You could not remove many comics without losing the plot. But now you could cut entire chapters and not notice anymore, since it just explanation of obvious stuff.

      But it clear that everything after that was not properly timelined with events flowing naturally so that the story works. And with the bad reaction Annie dad got Tom feels the need to explain everything to justify his story.

      It also suffers from something even worse, forced plot progress something you generally only see that in fanfiction where people just retread the story with minor shift despite their being a new character or a radically different personalty change.

      It obvious to everybody that Annie and Kat are endgame ship. Which is why the two annies had to die, despite everybody loving them, Kat could not end up with one or even both of the Annies, that would be deviating from the plot after all.

Hell he even admits that the 2 annies idea was something he came up with randomly when it happened. And their where entire chapters dealing with that so clearly no the plot did change at one point.

                Yes.

                You should really adjust your priorities so you're not so miserable all the time. Just some life advice.

                >adjust your priorities
                This is a priority though and I can't escape shitty AI anywhere anymore. It's going to be like you might as well hate the internet because the internet is going to become AI generated slop, and people like you that don't think that's a big deal and feed it are the reason no one will stop it from happening.

                I'm sorry you make yourself miserably unhappy. Not a way I'd prefer to live my life, hope you figure a way out of the hole. God bless.

                You really should adjust your priorities. Take a walk, call your mom, get a dog, shut off the devices, go on a camping trip, I dunno, something. Maybe genuinely consider talking to a therapist. Like seriously. Some people need it. Looking at pictures on the internet should not be the "joy" in your life. Feeling that because AI exists, your way of life is ruined, is not a sane or healthy thought process.

                I'm an artist. AI negatively impacts my life and no amount of therapy will change that reality.

                I like my family, dogs, and outdoors but I live for art. It is what gets me out of bed everyday.

    I don't get why people are so happy with those AI pics, it's generic characters without background, no action, no interaction, no emotion, it's like those DA autists that keep redrawing the same thing, or copy paste the same head on everything they can get.

      Look at the examples ITT. Coomers all. It's not a high standard to meet.

      >I don't get why people are so happy
      No one owes you an explanation for their happiness. The fact that you're not having a good time is simply not my problem.

      >people ignoring the actual artist in favor of worthless ai porn
      There's something seriously wrong with you people.

      >people ignoring the actual artist in favor of worthless ai porn
      >Tom drawing Coyote shaped like an eel
      I simply don't care. It's like arguing that a professional chef taking a slippery curry shit on a plate must by necessity be better than a trip to McDonald's. Yeah, no. McDonalds might be fast food, but it's not a slippery curry shit. A professional artist could draw a great pic, and a professional chef could cook a great meal, but they can both also produce absolute garbage that isn't worth my time. No one is obligated to consume anything they don't want, and it's none of your business if they do.

        It is everyone's business where the standards for quality are, though. What you describe as shit isn't actually shit, you just have shit taste.
