FFXIV.SS #06 – Orbonne Monastery 01

I happened to chance upon a Twitter post for a player organized event in FFXIV, where the objective is to enter Orbonne Monastery for the sole purpose of taking screenshots. It would be interesting, I thought, and it was always such a pity that in usual raid runs, we couldn’t stop to admire the scenery. So I signed up, and had more fun than I expected.

We went in unsynced with a total of 11 people and it went kind of smoothly at first. Then some time into the second boss fight, certain mechanics made it so much harder by killing two out of three alliance due to not having enough people to deal with it properly. Still, we managed to defeat them and the third boss, and then it was free time to take screenshots until the timer runs out and we could leave at any time.

For this post, I picked these four screenshots for the atmosphere they portrayed, and did some slight editing (basically just applying filters) to bring out the colors. Next week I’ll post another five screenshots. 😀 This time, with my character in them.

FFXIV.SS #05 – Couple

Happened to have a tender moment with my chocobo partner, who match my Red Mage clothes beautifully.

Screenshot taken when I was in Ala Mhigo area, doing my level 80 Red Mage job quest. The sky is just gorgeous in this game.

PS. I’ll try to remember to post more regularly.

FFXIV.SS #04 – Fly me to the Moon

Some time ago, got my pig with wings during a beautiful night.

This screenshot was taken around a month ago, when I was doing Pixie Beast Tribe quests.

FFXIV.SS #03 – Good friend

FFXIV.SS #02 – Bahamut

Image of the top-half of Bahamut suspended in the distance in a huge cavern space, together with machines of Allagan origins.
After many years, finally took in this scene of Bahamut through my own character’s eyes.

Posted a bit late for last week’s FFXIV.SS, because last week was a bit of a chaos for me.

FFBE: War of the Visions upgrade systems quick reference

This post is a quick reference mostly for myself because I struggle to remember where to get the different types of materials.

Names of the materials are kinda directly translated, I don’t know what their actual English names are or what other guides/wikis are using.

If you’re looking for an English guide, there’s this one:

*deep breath* Alright, here goes.

Introducing “FFXIV.SS” project

FFXIV.SS is short for “FFXIV Screenshots” and it’s a mini personal project that I just started.

I noticed that I have been taking a lot of screenshots but not sharing them much. Partly I wasn’t sure which platform I wanted to share them to, consistently. Then I remembered, I could just post them here and post links to social media instead. 😀

So basically, I’ll try to share at least one screenshot a week that is taken in FFXIV. That’s it. I don’t want to set any requirements or limitations, just 1 screenshot a week. It can be a screenshot taken years ago or a minute ago, can be edited for dramatic effect or completely unedited, can be a series of screenshots or just a single one, anything goes. No scheduled date or time. I can share more than once a week if I feel like it too.

These posts will be tagged with FFXIV.SS. I’ll see if I can make a gallery out of them somehow but that’s for later down the future.

FFXIV.SS #01 – Sleeping under the Stars

Image of a purple-haired Viera lounging on a bed perched in a tree, with a night sky with stars in the background. Character's head is tilted, looking towards the camera.
Where better to sleep on a flying bed, but under the blanket of stars.

Horror movie idea??

I can’t really watch horror movies or shows or whatever media (I absolutely do not want to give myself nightmares) thus I am super unfamiliar with most of the horror stories out there. But my scumbag brain likes to imagine things. I don’t know if something like this exists (and this is not a ‘please recommend me similar horror movies’ post, thank you!!!), but I just had some inspiration for a horror movie plot:

Why hiatus from Twitter?

I posted a lengthy thread on Twitter about taking an indefinite hiatus from it and here I’ll just combine the whole thing together instead of reading separate tweets.

How to input fractions in Microsoft Word

Lately, I’m doing freelance work helping to produce questions for a tuition center. I learned new things in Microsoft Words as I went along until yesterday, I was stumped trying to convert 3/10 into a proper fraction in-line instead of in its separate little equation block.

Updated (6 August 2019):
So… I actually found how to make the little equation block to display inline. It’s in the drop-down menu option, “Change to Inline”.

This is so much easier than the other method below, but I’m going to leave that in for when equation blocks can’t work.

As always, a bit of Googling saved me from further headache. I found the solution initially from a youtube video but this blog post ‘Mathematical Formulas in Microsoft Word‘ is a bit more detailed

The gist of it is to use equation fields, but hitting Ctrl + F9 and typing { eq \f (a,b) } , substituting a and b for whatever numbers or text of the fraction. Then right-click on the whole bracketed text (which should have a gray background now) and select ‘Toggle Field Codes‘ and it should convert itself.

The video shows it in action and the blog post have way more things than just fractions. This post of mine essentially is my note to self, because I have a feeling I may need to check back here again several times

PS. My Microsoft Words is 2016 version, but it seems to work for other versions too, older or newer.
