  • Oh my gosh, MV being on the biggest sale I've ever seen, only for 18,5€ on Steam...

    Agreed. I bought it for 27,99€ when I bought it, only two weeks after I added it to my wish list. I am pretty happy with this price and think I could settle even with 35-40€. Even with full year of experience I still find its full price tag unjustified though, because while I recognize the amount of work put into it and the assets, I still can't accept the fact for that price the MV engine is that slow.

    I still have a bitter experience when I paid the full price and the next day, there was a humbun for 1$.

    Yeah, if it was a really short time after, it's understandable. But you have no way of knowing.
    Couldn't solve a level in a math puzzle game... So I made a program that solves this level for me. Problem solved :p
    If it rains, I think I'm gonna turn violent... I am already so cold it's painful with nowhere to hide and get warm... Darn this job.

    I know that here programmers can do contract work instead of desk jobs. If that's a possibility you could do work from home so you don't have to deal with people and you could do part time or small jobs. Also if you pick up COBOL, no one will ever want to get rid of you. The people who know it are getting old but the businesses still need it just as much as before, so it's really high demand.

    Sorry if I'm annoying with my advice. I just hate being cold too and want to help if I can. It sounds awful, I hope you can hang in there.

    I don't have too much of a problem with covering the upper part of my body... The lower one is worse, the wind drafts underneath my clothes. And once these get soaked in the coldness, it's even colder, because that coldness gets then unleashed in waves when I get to a warm place.
    Slowly, but surely mastering single player Dominions 3. Nobody plays MP DIII though, so not sure about my mastery as a whole.
    That feeling when you see a girl without any makeup and other things people use to 'improve' their appearance and she's beautiful.

    *shrugs* I might be stupid for believing in the good in people and trying to draw it out, but that's fine with me. It makes me happy. Isn't that what everyone really wants out of life? Happiness for themselves and the people they care about?

    It's just . . . I don't focus on what I can't do. That's pointless. I'm going to do what I can with what I have. That's all I can do, but I think it's enough too.
    I always find it fascinating that it's much easier to spend money than to earn it. But if I don't spend it, I will lose it :(

    Investing in yourself is also good, like if you're learning a course of some kind that can improve your chances of getting a (good) job. I am noticing that nowadays the most in-demand skills are to do with IT. For this reason I've been learning some programming myself, because the more everything is becoming computerized, the more need there is for programmers.

    But just IT is useless, we have too many generic IT people. But IT with a specialized education, that is business. However, due to the previousgeneration being brought up in thespirit of "You have ro go to the university to have a good job" we are lacking specialized manual workers.

    Yeah. Degree has become de-valued nowadays and having one doesn't mean much anymore. The only jobs that require it now are those a bit higher on the socio-economic ladder, but for entry level jobs it's pretty much just manual experience is all they want. Makes me think we have all the education working backwards.
    TFW you have to get up, but you don't wanna, so inside your head you play that random computer game that you made up in your dream...

    It was a weird kind of a 3d multiplayer game. Attackers were supposed to attack some kind of an energy beacon and defenders defended it. With function calls typed in a console when they were in sight of the beacon or defender. However, it was one against four for some reason, so after my teammate decided to add some shields for overkill protection, the attacker stopped trying, because there was no way to op that.
    I'm not getting drunk again. I completely lost control over myself for five hours yesterday when I did...

    I remember seven shots of vodka. Then I was sent out for another bottle, returned, put it in the fridge, and from there a complete blackout. My neighbors are okay. I have already blacked out a couple of times and not because of drinking, so I already know that my second personality is rather passive and won't do anything bad.

    Tried Vodka once, smells like ethyl alcohol and probably tastes like it too.

    The first and only time I ever got drunk was during my 18th bday, my friends forced me to drink a lot of red wine with them to celebrate the day. I was really drunk but I didn't do anything weird, side effects were: easy laughs, speed of the world around me -100%. Surprisingly I didn't feel bad the day after, still I don't really like alcohol but a cup of red wine every now and then is both healthy and classy.
    I am by no means a beer expert. But sour wheat combined with decently strong bitter hops? That's some Devil's invention.
    Poryg
    Poryg
    Note: It was a wheat beer, so it was sour. However, in that beer there was a strong taste of hops as well, creating a rather terrible cocktail of tastes where the sour is getting overwhelmed by the bitterness of hops in the aftertaste. And as the aftertaste faded away, the bitterness did too, but the sourness stood for a while longer. In other words these two tastes were fighting each other.
    To allow support for wav and mp3 formats or not to allow support for wav and mp3 formats? That is a question. That and a million more...

    Then how about an option to download the game with the ogg files for smaller game size, and the option to download the game with wav files, for those who don't care about file size and want the best quality?
    Poryg
    Poryg
    @MushroomCake28 Understood. I'll incorporate only the ogg and m4a plugins into the core engine, but I'll make a plugin that will allow you to choose any one supported format. I don't think I'll allow format mixing though, since that would require additional checks to avoid hassles with 404 errors.
    Poryg

    @TheoAllen I would definitely not incorporate MIDI into the core engine :D Maybe one day as a plugin.
    I hate it when I am very hungry, but I don't feel like eating anything.

    I try to have really simple meals on hand for those days. Oh look, a potato. I can do that. PB&J, yup. Salad, okay. Oh hey, an apple! Simple but not unhealthy is tricky though.

    I guess you could also say ES6 is classier.
    I didn't expect to improve so fast on Dominions 3. However, I'm still far from good from what it looks like, since I can beat only normal AI

    I've also slowly learned when to conserve gold and when to spend it... And I've learned about the extreme importance of a strong dominion and many temples regardless of what nation you are, because if you lose all dominion, you simply die :p

    That's how I did learn. But, what little I did learn didn't mean much because I found the game to be rather boring. Even though I had over 2 hours of playtime, I still managed to get a refund. :D

    Yes, it is rather bland at first. I felt the same thing :D But now that I have my own PC and experiment with it myself, I find it actually quite deep. Of course terribly imbalanced, some races are just stronger, some are against one another and some need so special treatment that you can get screwed in multi, but it got more fun once I got to know it :D
    So I've begun making my own MV engine. I'll try to keep the format as close to default MV as possible, however it's still more than probable

    IE - tracing over someone's work and trying to say it's yours is just going to get you in to trouble because it wasn't yours. I don't know why you don't just make your own game engine with 100% your own code, no need for any of MVs. You appear to have skill enough to do so. It'd save you legal headaches farther down the line.

    It won't give me any headaches at all, MV code is MIT licensed.

    Although you're right, since I'm breaking almost all plugins anyway, I might just do a fully original code.
