  • My first 4 km outdoor run, yay! Although I'm not happy with the time - 27 min. Need to take it down to 25 or less.
    So far I'm responsible for two bans here afaik. Both for pirated MV. Can't say I'm too proud of it, both were kinda giveaways.
    A courier company that deals with Chinese diplomatic missions requires payment through Walmart money transfer. Oh my gosh :D

    Then once the scammer send the $80 to pay the fee, he emailed him pretending to be his supervisor saying brother so and so has ran off and joined a traveling circus, and stole from us $10000. I am handling all of his contacts now. What was his business with you?

    The first time I read it I thought you were into a strange courier company.

    Btw. Just in case you're wondering, any other linux has either jittery graphics (linuxes based on Debian, Fedora and ArchLinux) or screen moved down (linuxes based on OpenSUSE). The only options would be linuxes without GUI like Ubuntu server (I can't even use classic Ubuntu), but hey... That's ridiculous :D

    Doesn't Linux always give problems?
    After watching Young Sheldon I'm watching The Big Bang Theory for the second time (now in English). So many story inconsistencies there...

    People do a decent job of respecting those in charge in most areas. I worked in the computer lab in my college when I was a student there and I was the one who had to kick people out when we closed. Oddly despite being a scrawny kid people listened, and I think that is because they knew I had the power to call security on them.
    Lately I've had fun thinking about useless life advice and just as useless mottos.

    @Poryg, I did not know that you make a game too because you constantly create more plugins and coding. You are probably a busy person.

    @Kupotepo Currently I don't create anything, I'm barely capable of any reasonable brain activity. My focus is taking a bigger and bigger hit.

    So, after a years long hiatus I decided to try to compose a MTG green/blue EDH decklist. Let's say it didn't go well.

    Nevertheless, what I'm most angry at is the core set. It always served as an introduction for new players. Easy to understand instants and sorceries. Creatures with no effects, only mana cost. And may the best one win. Nowadays it's quite overwhelming for a beginner.

    The main problem is that it's a very slippery slope in terms of who wins and who loses. When people win, they get free prize packs, which in turn gives them better cards, which in terms leads them to build more expensive decks for free, which in turn leads to them winning tournaments, which in turn leads them to more prize packs... you see where I'm going with this?

    But we cannot give all equal stuff. Nobody would try.
    So, someone who apparently has a well paying job and sent me just a hi two years ago suddenly asks me for one grand USD for speakers.

    @Poryg, the currency rate is that the reason. If I exchange USD or Euro to a local currency, it is a lot of money.

    @MushroomCake28, yeah the old trick of Nigeria royal member scam.

    Lol Omni. Reminds me when I requested hot materials from a scammer and she told me she was a Christian and would never do something impure like that (guess stealing is fine with African Christians :D).
    I finally begun to conceptualize my dream strategy game. The features I want there make it very difficult to balance though ;_;

    I want to eliminate these cheeses. Paying tribute will only be an option if the stronger side is at war, otherwise he'll just attack you and it'll be up to you to try to find your allies, since relations won't play a role in the game.

    The AI will judge based on profitability. It will be more prone to ganging up against the strongest guy to try to curb their strength, like in Master of Orion, although it won't threaten you two times before attacking.

    I intend to reduce the number of techs available. Due to modular ship design there also won't be any Corvette or Dreadnought class ships, so the AI won't favor certain tech tree.
    Wow! The mom of one of the scammers is from Chernarus... What a coincidence! The scammer has a mom that doesn't exist.

    I don't lose that much time over that to be frank, I do it when I'm having a break. Which has been for the last two months practically anytime I wasn't at work.
    So, after cutting myself with a dull razor deeper than I'd like I bought an electric shaver. Looks like I did not choose well though.
    When you say "I hate *insert any large group of anything*, somehow people take it as if you'd hate the entire group. Why can't they...

    because the opposite word of like is dislike? not hate?

    But to be honest, people tend to treat even the "love" figuratively... But say "hate" and you'll receive dozens of concrete examples, sometimes one more ridiculous than the other just "to prove a point".
    Seeing how children react to me being myself/or realistic, sometimes it makes me question why people exaggerate their behavior around them.

    Probably because they are boring, or at least think they are. Dont understand it though, all it does is make the kid feel you dont take them seriously, and if you dont then why should they take anything you have to say seriously either?

    Well...I wouldn't say exaggerate, but rather sometimes we clown around because kids, especially little ones, find silly acts and physical comedy hilarious. It's joyful to make kids laugh with stuff that would get you only eye rolls from adults. :p

Tonight I'm finally going to start putting the dungeons my team has made on grid paper into the engine. That's the final step of making the game world.

I was just reflecting back on an old project of mine. I was creating a Wizardry-like game but with a little more complexity. It was being made with RPG Maker VX Ace.
