it can run 1080p no problem, so try a portrait setup to scale it to a similar aspect ratio

Oh jeez...

3GB on disk, 6,941 files with 1,366 folders.

I'm really gonna fall in love with the DatPacker here.

EDIT: After running the DatPacker (and a little organizing by me): 2.75GB on disk, 490 files, 76 folders. Quite the cleanup eh?

EDIT 2: Anybody know why the MIS won't be placed on a slope?

could be a slope mod problem, I use the bigredfish slope mod (the most extreme smooth one out there) and use the monorail or railroad to smooth all highway baths beforehand, also it looks like you didn't use the hole digger or ground raiser lots, get those as they are invaluable

I use Ennedi's medium slope mod mixed with the hole diggers/raisers found in the NAM thread.

I'll try bigredfish's slope mod.

EDIT: Not digging BRF's slope mod at all. Went back to Ennedi's slope mod.

I've always been frustrated by this. Here is a thought. What happens when you remove your slope mod, build your MIS, and then put the mod back?

Will play with the SUM when I get back.

Congratulations on your daughter!!! When she due to arrive? Your first?

With the economy the way it is this is becoming a normalcy. Hopefully, its only temporary. I pray it is. You are not alone but that doesn't make it better. Stay strong and keep your faith. Enjoy the time specially with your little one on the way. If it happens that you aren't working by then, having the time off will be a gift to you all. Father's normally don't have the chance to spend anytime with their young one's. Time is something you never get back. The money you can always get back.

Honestly? I got frustrated and scrapped it in favor of relocating it. I'll try it again.

Yeah, it's our first. We were married not a whole month when my wife said we're having a kid. She's due in the first week of August. Wife has a feeling she'll be a July baby, though. I really don't care, I just wanna see her.

You know what they say - True love is a daughter's love of her father. Let us know when she arrives so we can cheer for you!
