Finished a major rewrite of the Trattoria wiki page, along with some additions to the Trattorian Characters and Trattorian Planets pages. In case anyone cares.

So, for kicks, I made a bunch of representations of the Trans Elements in LDD.  I was going to POV-Ray them to make them look extra nice but the render went wonky and still wasn't done in more than a day and a half.  

On a side note, for the conversation here, I quit out the render and tried a test render on 4 trans bricks.  2 hours and 50% completion later, it Blue Screened me.  So, I'm kinda over it.

So I just went ahead and shopped the LDD images and added them to the Transparent Element Wiki Page.  There's one for each Element entry in a larger size (except Rainbow which I'll do later probably) but I also put up a banner image at the top that looks like this:

Despite spending waaaaay too much fucking time on these things, I really do like how they turned out.

Included is the LXF.  In case, for some reason, anyone wants to try their own renders.

Agreed, it's a nice bit of flavor.

In other news, i briefly updated the Avokhan page in preparation for my return to content creation.
Ask now what I'm doing, even for me :mystery:

Oops!
Trans things render funny.
You should try just solid bricks.

Looks like your computer is not great.

If we used a photoshop/colour joke . . .

We could say they had a Hex change.

No, not anymore. I must have built it 3 or 4 years ago, now.  It's gotten one upgrade in the meantime.

Oh, the puns!  They're not bad, just a little off color.

I really like what's going on on the Transparent Element page. It's getting a little long for my tastes  :twss: so I might cut it down to summaries with links to separate main articles for each color.

The one thing I think it needs for quicker overview is element labels. Like not just "Smoke Transparent," but "Smoke Transparent - Elemental Corruption." Labels like Light or Life aren't very brikwarsy though, I'd want to find more satiric names for them.

So let's see, what have we got.

Orange Transparent - Ossum
Blue Transparent - Motivation? Action? Compulsion? Instigation?
Clear Transparent - Absence? Lack? Potential?
Green Transparent - Proliferation? Virality?
Pink Transparent - Friendship
Purple Transparent - Drama
Rainbow Transparent - Unrestraint? Noncomformity? Disinhibition? Pandemonium?
Red Transparent - Strife
Smoke Transparent - Corruption
Yellow Transparent - Purism

That should still hold up.

Also, labels is a decent idea.

Orange: Ossum works for me.  I've been thinking of it as the most Powerful, but Ossum is better.
Blue: Hard to define this one.  I feel more like it's Raw Energy.  Maybe Power, since OT is Ossum.
Clear: I dig Potential.  It's not the lack of a thing so much as the BrikVerse trying to make sense of nothingness and forcing a residue into existence.
Green: Nature?  Vitality?  Something that means both intense creation and well as intense destruction.
Pink: Obvs Friendship.  It's tote adorbs.
Purple:  I've been thinking of this as the Humanominifig bond (just because I like the bullshit word) but yes, Drama is far more succinct.
Rainbow: Man, something ought to be called Pandemonium.  Maybe Green?  Yeah, Green fits better. Rainbow brings clarity and lucidity.
Red:  Strife, Violence, Hatred, Anger?
Smoke: Corruption.
Yellow:  Purity seems fine, given the way it infuses all with its light and at the atomic beige carpet level.  Something encompassing that scope might also work: Infinity?  Infection?

Blue could be retaliation, because it has reserves of energy that need to be activated. Or it could be penis-envy, because it's a grower (in power output) not a show-er.

Green could be growth.
