What light-transmission speed have you got?

Not benchmarked this set up yet, but just looking at the baubles I can tell the polygon count is up by 50% on last year.

Thanks Mimi and Perkies :) Jen did the tree decorating, I just put on my favourite baubles. The Giraffe is George, he has known Jen longer than is have. He's our guard Giraffe.

Thanks for the likes folks, this will encourage me to really push it for next years build. We use a special under-tree-cloth thing to hide the base and keep cable fuss at a minimum.

Nice colour scheme Mimi, tbh though I thought you'd have knitted your own tree.

Gilly, your house looks really cosy, well done on making it your home this year. Great giraffe.

Everyone else, well done, great to see people getting into the swing of things. Especially those with prezzies under the tree already.

Craster, you're a lazy shit.

Our tree has survived the trip across the sea, and Mrs Meaty is setting it up today. Need to go buy replacement lights, though.

Oh, and get the LED lights because the power consumption is ace, there are no bulbs to go and they look lovely and bright and sparkly :D

ZOMG SPAM.

Yeah, LEDS are great, low power consumption (not that I pay the electric bill here) and you can set all the flashing patterns to make it look like some twat's custom PC case.

Hello Mr Scrooge!


I'm worse than Craster. I'm usually home all over Christmas and I don't put any decorations up at all. I don't even own Christmas Nights on the Saturn any more.


Looking at my post from last year, I can say I've definitely improved. I own Christmas Nights now.

Here's a rubbish photo of mine.

I'd rather have them bare than decorated, to be honest.

Well, trees are very nice, yes. If you're going to not bother decorating it you may as well leave it outside where trees live than chopping the fucker down and putting it in your living room though.

Why not just decorate it outside, too?

Yeah. I had to crop where I did to remove a big floorstanding speaker just to the right of the tree, but it left a couple of pictures on the wall half in the pic and half outside it. I didn't like that so I removed them.

Nope. There were no other lights on in the room, and it was shot with a long exposure of a couple of seconds. That's what gives it the flood of light effect.
