  • Hey artists, if any of you like doing logos and could do with some extra cash, 48HoursLogo seems an interesting place to check out. I'm getting a logo done, and am shocked at how quickly people are making them compared with how much I'm paying!

    Don't they have an image to maintain? One can't be a starving artist if one makes money you know. There are rules you see, it's like a code of conduct. Rule 67.b clearly states one can't be a starving artist if one has money. See right there in black and white... with perfect shading. :LZSwink:

    @ImaginaryVillain you may be right, but only partly. There is a limit to how long an artist can starve, and then they die. You probably don't care so much about maintaining an image if you're dead, right?

    As long as their death has artistic meaning, I suspect that is deemed okay by the Starving Artist Guild. :LZSwink:

    If you post asking for help with something, try not to turn off potential helpers by acting like an entitled jackass in your opening request. I'm seeing a bit of this lately. Don't make yourself unpleasant to deal with. Nobody owes you anything, especially when you're using something you haven't paid for or said thanks for.

    Ouch, I'm sorry that's been happening then. I'm used to seeing someone being demanding in tone partly from LB, but rarely abusive with any cussing going on.

    Your complaint may be legitimate, but don't direct it or your anger or frustration at the people who might potentially come to help you.

    This this this this this this this so much, man. I swear, I see it so much lately. I also agree that language isn't really an excuse to say "What the **** this ****ing sucks". Jackassery is a universal language, but so is etiquette.
    Okay folks, see you tomorrow. Don't blow up the forum while I'm gone, k?

    Anyone know/remember Mummy's Tomb / Crystals of Zong for C64? Trying to recreate it for One Map Challenge. Fun. And ... er ... challenging!

    Also... those sweet, sweet C64 noises sound effects. I bet they're well past copyright, you could probably legitimately use them to cause suffering inspire nostalgia in people. :LZSexcite:

    Finding it amusing that people are posting support questions in new threads for an engine that isn't even released yet. Touch and Archeia are the only ones authorised to say anything, and there's only one active thread where they'll be answering questions.

    The excitement really took off when the sample games were released. Access to the graphics, audio, and code is more interesting than some screen shots.

    I seen one the other day the dude was asking how to run a game (mz demo) on android, and had already ran it on a web server... I didn't even bother answering :LZSangel:

    Got accepted into the architecture degree. Now I have all the doubting questions. Have to give them an answer in the next few days.

    Plus, new PC is up and running now with almost everything installed. So there are no more excuses, other than time and fear.

    Oh yeah, fear of putting yourself out there is the worst. I still have the underlying feeling my stuff isn't good enough. And still twitch a bit before pressing the button to upload something to social media. Thankfully over time it ends up being not as bad. Best advice (which I should take more myself) just do it, don't think about it. :LZSexcite: No advice on my time though, I need more of that too. :kaoback:

    Congratulations on getting in! As far as the doubt - carefully think over what you believe your path would be if you go for this degree, and what it would be if you don't. Chances are you'll come to the right decision.

    New PC is built. Now I walk that fine line between wanting it NOW, and being responsible and waiting for the stress test to be finished. By this time tomorrow it'll be up and running. And my desk will have had a much-needed clean.

    @FiercestPixel I didn't build it. My brother does them as part of his business.
    @ImaginaryVillain yeah, I tinker with it after it's built.
    I asked my brother to build me one, told him what I want to do with it, he sent me the specs, I passed them to hubby, who gave his approval and is now slightly jealous.

    And looks like I'm getting it in a few hours, not tomorrow.

    Heck, I don't even use my phone for anything other than messages, calling, and a shopping list! :D Nobody could ever accuse me of keeping up with the latest trends!

    Ugh... phones. I'd throw mine off a bridge if I didn't make so much money having it. :LZSwink: Also your brother definitely recommended some very good parts, probably overkill to be honest. But I've pretty much discovered that's how a lot of people build their computers... Or I'm just insanely stingy with my money. :stache:
    In other news, my new computer is now ordered, and I'll have it in my hot little hands by the end of the week! CAN'T WAIT!!!
    I keep thinking today is Thursday.
    And I look forward to the next preview thread coming this afternoon.
    And then I realise it's not Thursday at all.
    And then I get sad :(

    The other really sad thing about it is that it means I have 3 days to go until the weekend, instead of only 1 :(
    The intricate play between supply and demand and COVID-19 has increased the price of my new computer system by $300 since I got the first quote 6 weeks ago :( Guess I don't REALLY need a new monitor, and I can pay for Windows 10 activation later. On the upside, I hope to be putting it to use next weekend.

    That's a nice one to use when you want to black out an area on the A tiles (why isn't there an 'erase' tile for the autotiles?) I use it a lot for interiors.
    Ossra

    I probably used the tile to cover the out-of-bounds area and then changed the passage setting. Ah well, nice to know I do not have to avoid that square anymore.

    So no staff cuts in our department yet, but the system I look after has an end date. Thinking of studying again so I'm ready for a complete non-IT career change when that end date arrives. Work full time, study full time, RPG Maker, real life, easy, right?

    I always thought that's super interesting but building such a house around here around be highly frustrating simply through bureaucracy. But I think that long term we need to build in a way that makes the most efficient use of the water we use, the space that we occupy and the food that we need. Not only as private persons, but also as cities providing living space.
    Tldr: I think you would make an awesome architect

    Yes bureaucracy is ever a problem :p.

    Traditionally in Holland architects would design buildings with green spaces around it (those meaning someone with gardening skills should detail that part). I’ve seen some recent projects though where the design was more of a coop between architects, biologists, ecologists and gardeners. That’s already a step forward.

    @EmeraldDemnia thank you so much for your definition - that describes the essence of permaculture beautifully. Yes, I also haven't seen much in the way of combining the two, so I'm hoping in the time it takes me to become qualified, there might already be great demand and little supply.
    Just found out a lot of departments at work have been told to cut staff. Our department's manager has called a special meeting for Friday. Guess I'm glad I already paid for MZ ...

    My little ragdoll x foster kitties both go to their new homes tomorrow. They've grown so much and we're gonna miss them.
    Calculated my tax refund - CHEERS
    Looked at my student debt - cries
    Still, might be just enough left over to pay for my new computer, which would be awesome!
    And my student debt will be fully paid, which is also pretty nice.

Less than a week and I can move into my new apartment and out of this bad situation. I'm so excited! Then game making power will increase. :kaoluv:

I really tried to pull off something for halloween, but I don't feel like going on. I feel like the plot I was building was too generic, and I couldn't connect to it as I do with other projects. On the bright side, I've been working on my cosmic-puzzle project, so far I think the core mechanics are working properly, so I'll be creating some large test maps to see how it works out.
