  • does there exist a word for a state of being that is between "living" and (not "dead", but ...) "not living" .... does that make sense, or do I just sound like Im high for something :[ ?

    I can't think of anything either but will throw a few words your way in case they spur on ideas: comatose, vegetable, braindead.

    If there's a synonym for "alert" that starts with a "V", maybe "_____ Vegetable"? You'd think there would be a word for what you're describing but -- WHEW -- that's a tough one.

    Edit: The question you posed just gave me a character idea! Braindead Butcher

    Determine solid definitions for "alive" and "dead", then see what's left? :kaohi:

    Also, to clarify, Schrodinger's cat is a thought experiment to demonstrate the limits of scientific models: the uncertainty pertains to the model, not (necessarily) reality. It was popularised via quantum theory because for very small things, accurate measurement is much more difficult to achieve. :kaoslp:

    Homunculus (In the psychological definition, not the mythological) would be the closest to what you are describing in English I think. You could also qualify your life with the word anesthetized, saying one is living an anesthetized life would literally be saying that you are going through the motions, completely numb and inattentive to the world around you.
    SO glad they patched outer worlds for switch! I can finally play it! Weird that other peeps are still having issues. I know it was really chugging on my lite when it first came out.
    O_O ...I woke up this morning terrified that I failed math class because I didint do any of my home work and would fail the college semester.... I was relieved to remember I wasint in school.
    So... some of my Desktop hardware has kicked it apparently (still trying to figure out what and how at the moment :/ ) .... yay?

    A quick solution would be to try another hdd, if it doesnt work then it might be the mobo.

    If there's such a thing in anime as normal I've never see it. LOL I think that's what makes it fun to watch....
    With the inclusion of layers n MZ, aren't A5 category tiles a little superfluous? Since B-E tiles can work the same way as long as you have the passibility set up the right way. The only reason I can think of to use A5 tiles is if you needed more room for impassable/opaque tiles... just something I was thinking about.

    Well, its not that I have an issue reporting an accident, especially if its a big accident, like if the guy had run head long into someones storage compartment, destroying everything inside....this one was small, he was backing up and bopped the side of one of the storage buildings left a little dent :< .... and the guy had kids... I feel feel kinda bad. Hope he had insurance.

    Me too, but don't feel bad for doing it, being trusted to do something is no small responsibility.
    Feeling kind of discouraged today... some days it seems like my pixel art comes easy to me, but not yesterday or today it seems :( . sigh.

    The funny thing I've noticed is that when I feel reasonable again, the work I did during the time I felt discouraged is often better than when I feel impressed with myself.

    @Sharm - I think I have times like that too. I think I just get frustrated easily... I just feel gut punched, cuz I thought was getting good. But been working fro hours on this one little tiny 16x16 tile....and its beating me... ugh :(

    Getting frustrated with your progress is part of being an artist. It's annoying, but you need what's causing the frustration to be able to improve, so it's ultimately helpful.
    Sounds like you need a break from that tile, but not pixel art. You might need a little more research on what you're making.
    :/ sigh ... its hard enough trying to get into a new routine... then the cat wont let you sleep.
    -_- ... sigh, I guess maybe pixeling 48x48 tiles are just to big for me to make right now. So frustrating.

    Indeed, it look more like rastering with a microscope than pixelating. At least, interior tiles.

    I do 24x24 and upscale to get a nice pixel look; I don't think I'd be willing to go full HD 48x48 pixels.

    16x16 here, just don't have the time to pixel an entire game's worth of assets at 48x48

    I can unplug pretty easily thankfully. I've been getting more irritable of late, comes with losing patience for dumb stuff at an older age, so I force myself off to keep sanity in check. It helps that I've never been one for any social media sites, so it's like someone who never watches TV trying to stop watching TV.

    Because you feel a responsibility to do something about society’s problems, but it feels negative because all you can do for a lot of them is to feel anger, mistakenly.

    @KakonComp - Dont blame you, just thought I'd try it since it seemed like everyone was losing their mind about it. Didint realize it would be a gotcha game though :/ .

    My memory is embellishing the quality of NES era game assets :/ .... I need to stop comparing my work to somthing that was groundbreaking decades ago. Especially since its not as good as I seem to keep remembering it to be.

    Every time someone talks with nostalgia about the NES area graphics... I think they're from an alternate universe where that stuff wasn't eye bleedingly ugly. Some utopian universe of rainbows, puppies, flowers, and hardcore psychedelics. :LZSwink:

    Well...I think childhood really defines what beauty is for everyone. For example I may never understand the fashion sense of grandma. Something I may look at in horror she might genuinely think is beautiful. And we will both be right.

    Sometimes the appreciation can be learned too. I grew up in the era where EGA was a thing and that palette will make your eyes bleed, but now that I know a lot more about pixel art and working with difficult palettes I can better appreciate some of the EGA graphics. Not most of them, but some.

    X[ oh gawd.... I dropped my super expensive laptop on my hard tile floor! It still comes on and all, but now Im worried its gunna start screwing up in the near future.... I hope not, cant afford to replace stuff like that. :(

    Usually drop damage shows up right away. If you've turned it off and on once since the drop and everything still works like it should, the chances are really good that everything is fine.

    One of our laptops stopped working altogether when we dropped it...(we suspect the motherboard cracked) We hope the files on the hardrive are still intact.

    Disconnections and hard drive failure are the most common problems with dropped electronics.

    Most of the time if you break it down into basic shapes and use RL references you can figure it out. Of course, this all depends a lot on knowing where your lightsource is, so figure out exactly where the light is coming from first.
    O.O Im really glad RMMV/MZ's map and event system dont work the way RMDS-Fes' does. Like... I like Fes, I bought the Tiles for MV... XD but I barely touch it on my DS.
    -__- ... I have to keep reminding myself that the guy/gal Im watching do pixel art has the vid on a high frame skip.... they are so awesome.

Hope you are all fine today~
Moderators, you must have so much patience to be able to deal with everything. I mod in a server of sorts and today we just got a message, which, despite it's helpful constructive criticism, basically stated that all of the mods were jerks and that was the only reason our server was unlikeable. So, thank you, for having patience. You are appreciated! :kaoluv:
Haired slime? Trying some different styles of art. Maybe I can make some resources with this new kind of painting.......
