You mean outboxes? Vanilla Noctis IV.
I wasn't going to say 'vanilla' because the original isn't boring, but then I remembered that vanilla icecream isn't really boring either.

I personally don't understand (and I'm sure at least Yayo and Alex will agree with me) why something which should have no flavour is usually called Vanilla.

By the way, just so you can't miss it:
Noctis IV 3.1

Or if you prefer, this is a version with very little but precious improvements.
(link to the directory listing, so you can have a look at the readme)
Noctis IV plus

Probably because it's the standard default ice cream flavor.

true. I never understood why english people do use that word. But it's also true that I wouldn't be able to explain why we italians use to say, for example, "pinco pallino" or "pinco pallo" (referring to a general unknown person) or "mangiare a ufo" (which means eating without paying a cent). : P

As Shadowlord said, vanilla tends to be the 'default' flavor of ice cream for when no flavor is specified. For instance, if you order a slice of pie with ice cream on top, you can be pretty sure that flavor will be vanilla unless specified otherwise.

I don't use the term myself though. It seems easier and more descriptive to just call it Noctis IV. Also, the standard name is less likely to make people hungry. : )

Milk + ice = ice cream.

Hence the default flavour of ice cream is milk. We call it Fiordilatte or sometimes simply Panna.

I'm just being picky with all this dscussion, don't take it too seriously, you should know that as food is implied we Italians have a pride we must show off.
