Maybe, but presenting it like that in one of the very last episodes in the show didn't help him or the Discord fans. If someone told me that he disliked him because of this episode, I'd get it, that is reasonable.

Fortunately, it's not my case and I enjoyed the episode. And again, it could have been much much worse. Not only that, but I also have seen worse scenarios.

I support the feminist movement for several years. I am a man, but fully share the values of women who fight for their rights. Many articles are written on the Internet, and everyone believes that only his opinion is true. When my friends learned about it, I was very convicted. After all, feminists are only girls and only they maintain gender equality. But I combined my point of view, because if I want to do something, then I will do it.

Each frame of a gif CAN have its own colour table, but it'd quickly inflate the file size.
I've generally used photoshop for the different compression settings, but there's no ability to make it use the per-frame colour table.

I've been looking into the decoding/encoding of the gif data format recently, and good lord it's such a mess that really shows its age, since the format was made back when tiny file sizes were important because of the bandwidth limitations, they have several pieces of data super squished down into bits rather than each byte. It had pretty effective use of space back then, not so much today though.

Time to torment myself again. Going for a culture victory with Gorgo. I always end up at war, so I better use a civ who benefits from that.

One of these might help if you're running a more burn-focused deck, since you can then use the main deck monster's effects to flip them all face down, and then follow it up with Ghostrick Scare.

I haven't the faintest clue what programs people use for GIF making, sorry; I just know free ones like ezgif

And the quality for large GIFs will be better as there's more space to add the dithering; the optimizers play fast and loose and don't care for averaging out colour spaces per pixel, not for thumbnail and preview images at least.


GIFs have a very small colour limit for the entire file, 256 colours per frame (for now ignore that some frames are additive so use alpha tricks to display more than that…) 256 is not a lot, even for cartoons like MLP due to backgrounds and certain objects and effects. That means that a gradient that goes from light blue to slightly less light blue can't be shown with the full x-thousand different colours it would have in a video or other image format like BMP or PNG, but is actually just two different blue colours represented as tiny dots in one space, the amount of one over the other leading to the impression that it's a different colour from the two that make it up.

So, very simplified, imagine '◼' is one shade of blue, and '◻' is another shade of blue, we want a thin, short line that smoothly transitions from left to right from ◼ to ◻; a GIF would represent that as this, using a 3x3 grid for each colour:

◼◼◼ ◼◼◼ ◼◻◼ ◻◻◻ ◻◻◻
◼◼◼ ◼◻◼ ◻◼◻ ◻◼◻ ◻◻◻
◼◼◼ ◼◼◼ ◼◻◼ ◻◻◻ ◻◻◻


Now, if you simply scale the GIF down in dimensions to a third of the size, the above turns into this:

◼ ◻ ◼


To the eye, the seemingly smooth gradient that showed 5 different colours now only shows 2, and the way they're alternating looks even worse.

Overall, this is just a limitation of the GIF format; resizing a GIF is extremely lossy as the format depends on dithering far more than any other image or video format. I'm terrible at explaining things; I recommend you look into "dithering" and "aliasing effect" if any of this seems interesting.

Terminal Red

So, Speculation on the New Dead space?

I always imagined a direct sequel to 3.

The earth is destroyed by the Brother moons and the surviving remnants of the human race fled the massacre on a ramshackle fleet of improvised battleships, planet crackers, merchant ships and whatever else was fast enough to escape.

It's at least 100 years since the exodus and humanity is constantly on the run, The fleet never staying to long in one place and constantly on the move in fear that the Brother moons could be right behind them. Their aging starships held together with duct tape and improvised repairs.

Isaac Clarke is now a historical figure. Perhaps he was the one to organise and lead the fleet away from earth. You play a new character, One of the engineers tasked with keeping his ship running.

One day, your ship starts to lag behind the others, then stops entirely. The lights flicker and you hear panicked screams through your radio. The worst case scenario is happening and its time to don your rig and your power tools and get your ship running before it's too late.

But I see other large gifs in this site and and they have much better quality. What program uploaders are using to achieve such a quality from a full HD gif?
