  • I decided to try to make a mucha-styled artwork, and by now I've sunk more time in studies and sketches than I usually do in the whole thing. Fingers crossed it's worth it!
    What I've seen from the MZ tiles looks pretty inconsistent, bleh. Every plant seems to be drawn in a different style.

    Well, it's not released yet. So let's hope that before the release they will do some work revision. But IF they are relying on the community to do some work is really not a nice thing. I don't know if they are doing this, but sometimes, I get that impression. Like a lot of plugins makers made bugFixes in the code for MV, and they even care to add to the default code. But I can surely be wrong too in my impression.

    There are limits to how many resources can be put into something before it's not worth the cost sunk into it, and creating a large amount of tiles is a massive amount of work. I don't love that they didn't put enough resources in to make it look, but I also don't think they stopped where they did due to nefarious reasons or out of expectations that we'd fix it for them.

    In fact, in my experience those in Japan find the idea of fan fixes a little foreign and not something to expect at all. I think it all comes down to releases needing to be "good enough" to be out in any reasonable amount of time, and we're all going to disagree with the project director on what "good enough" actually means.
    Social distancing taught me of how much of not a loner I am. Dammit, I miss seeing my friends...

    I don't even say "hi" to people when I see them, because when I *meet* them, I usually *spotted* them five minutes before they *met* me.
    -"Hey! Hi! How are you! SSSSSSSSSSSSO good to see you! long time no see!" *rub themselves on my face*
    -"Dude... We've met five minutes ago... if you had lifted your eyes from looking at your shoes for two seconds, you would have seen me"

    @gstv87 The trick is to walk around with an unapproachable, murderous look on your face. All scowls and no smiles. xD

    I guess learning that you're not antisocial is a good thing. I've learned the opposite. . . .
    I just saw resources in my own resource thread that I forgot that they ever existed. I'm getting old.

    I agree with Zeriab. I don't think it has anything to do with age, just that you make so much that keeping it all in your head isn't very likely.

    Lol it's ok to get old, my memory isn't like it used to be, either. Right now it means if I make a sandwich and get up to do something else before I eat it, I might make a second sandwich. This has happened like 10 times this year already ;b
    To summarize how life is going lately: I was hit by an automatic sliding door yesterday.
    Yesterday I was told a good friend of mine has stage 3 cancer. Everytime I think this year can't get worse, it gets worse.

    Thank you guys. I looks pretty good for the stadium he is in, but right now his chances are like rolling a D20, with a crit fail on the 1. I had other bad news from another friend today, and I'm trying my best to handle that.

    Added the best of all the bois to my avatar. Say Hi to Furby, he's a good one!

    Furby is a neighbour cat, he is about 22 years old (he was a stray when they adopted him 17 years ago) and he is the sweetest guy ever. He greets me, jumps on my lap whenever he can and demand cuddles all the time - unless he plays with my hair, then I have to watch out of the claws xD

    That's adorable! The strays near me aren't that social; they're only happy to see me when I bring them snacks xD

    Furby is the reason we don't have other strays here xD Even without teeth (the last one was removed like 2 years ago), other cats still avoid him for a good reason :D
    Besides some minor formal things, I finished my thesis today. One call to my prof and a few tiny fixes that will come from that and I can print it.

    Congrats! Must be quite a relief. (I've been getting some traumatic flashbacks hearing you've been working on yours.)
    Today an old woman yelled insults at me cause I dared to have my phone in my hand while walking.

    Well its crazy a women would insult anyone for walking with a phone in your hand. I dont see why anyone would get angry for that.

    @JohnDoeNews Hello have you took part in the No Travel Game Jam?

    Nah... Not really. But lets not talk about me... Otherwise Avary gets all those notifications. She might think she's popular and then it turns out to be for me. I won't do that to her... I know how that feels. :stickytongue: Haha.
    (Edit: I hope it's clear I am just being a goof... Not really sad and lonely. I'm just not that active here, therefor 4 notifications at once is a ton for me.)
    I miss being at the campus so much :/ We will have remote lessons for the whole semester.

    We're remote through the summer term too. Decision on Fall term coming by July 1st.
    When a company _finally_ sends you the data you needed one month ago and you have to rewrite your thesis in many points... at least I was _right_ with the stuff I assumed to be found in there.
    I feel like I spend much more time on my pc and still get much less done while in isolation.

    I definitely feel you. I've been off work for more than 2 weeks now and have had all the time in the world to get RPG work done. I've definitely made progress, but nowhere near as much as I did during my 1-week Christmas break. Not to mention my sleep pattern is all out of whack, sleeping for 10-12 hours a day...

    Have you heard the saying "If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it?" I think part of the reason why it's true is that humans are actually less effective when we're expected to focus on one thing for too long. Our minds crave variety!

    So it makes sense that you can't get things done, your body is working against you right now, trying to get you off the computer and doing something different for a change. i think if you mix it up you'll get more done in a shorter time frame.
    Today's joyful task: Going through 4 different documents with different input from people for my 42 pages of thesis and trying to improve it.
    The worst part of writing the thesis is getting to a point where it's nearly done and you feel like an 8th-grader could've written something on that level.

    So you're saying you could have saved time by just hiring an 8th grader off of Fiver? Huh.... Schooling just go so much cheaper! :LZSexcite:

    take a look at the small print of various contracts, and try to summarize what they actually say.
    reverse the process to write your thesis: simple concepts, in very complex wording.
    Cheesy power metal makes everything better. No matter what you do, you'll feel heroic doing it.

    Lately mostly Sabaton (not cheesy though), but also Powerwolf (not everything, stuff like "Armata Strigoi" and "Sanctified with dynamite" and I have to ignore the actual content because it's pretty weird, they are kind of catholic werewolves in a parallel world xD) and Gloryhammer (veeeery cheesy though, but I love it) and lately one song from Ad Infinitum, Marchin on Versailles.

    Some stuff I listen to lately, if someone cares ;3
    padr81
    Ad Infinitum is one of my new fave bands, nice proggy sound and modern production. That girl sings in about 100 bands now but thats her best for sure. My fave bands are the older ones (Angra, Hammerfall, Blind Guardian), and I love Italian Power Metal. Temperance, Noveria, Vision Divine and Labyrinth being particular faves. So melodic and always cheers me up.

My new 49" monitor has been dispatched from the warehouse. Will it arrive tomorrow? The day after? I love that we can track packages now, even if it does only tell me when it's left that end and when it's arrived at the local centre. As long as it doesn't end up in Melbourne again, which has happened before ...
My friend's doing a surprise stream of my game Origin Hunt on Twitch here ! Feel free to stop by :yhappy:
Me, designing it a long time ago: Having an optional boss fight as a random chance to trigger when you fish in a certain spot with a certain type of bait is fun! Cool idea!
Me, trying to playtest everything again: oh god just let me see the boss, my bag is so full of fish!
both love and pain have no boundaries
