Well, I thought I might as well take the time to post more pictures while we're discussing more internally.
Terrain is pretty much all done, but I had a few issues putting it together due to a design oversight, nonetheless you can expect terrain progress to be very rapid now.
To the left is the construction module, the right is the mineral processing module.
And finally, I have a confession.
I went overboard.
Chances are, very few of you will be able to run this on High, let alone Ultra.
I apologize for this, I'll be doing my best to optimize it after we have all of the terraining down and set.
I'm back with more screenies of the hanger bay. I'll actually post the beginning to end works if anyone is interested in my methods of terraining.
The hanger is whole lot more 'cleaner'. You can expect much of the next terrain to be more or less this 'much' in terms of GPU strain now. I get about 30-35FPS on my laptop while viewing it.
That concludes the entire bottom floor if you include the Shield Core. Next up: Top Floor!
So, the plan is to have a big release featuring boarding, hacking and the new terrain. This will be released in a couple of weeks, hopefully around the same time as the release of the Starcraft 2 1.5 patch.
I have to give credit where it's due. The terrain is all Syndrome's work and most of the hacking was done by friend Exuvo. I fixed the output part and made it look nicer. I don't think it took that long for Exuvo to make the hacking. 1-2 days of work.
The video however, all my work! It's a piece of art, though I say so myself.
Oh wow, it's getting popular again. I just played a full game on NA and it was nice. The uploaded version is pretty old though and most of the bugs and weird messages are fixed on the current version. I am waiting for a big release before I publish the new version though.
but yeah man you should come to Houston there is so much more opportunity here than San Antonio. Just look at all the homeless people on the Riverwalk and downtown there you cannot even walk down the street without getting mobbed them
I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
@Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.
My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!
