So in learning all this i'm sure you've made more than one unintentional creation that you've ended up using because it was entertaining. For me I just recently made a marine that surfs on a brood lord and shoots stuff while flying around...I was going for an upgrade, well it kinda turned out!

What's your favorite entertaining mistake?

My most entertaining mistake is the most aggravating. I was trying to figure out why the following code was giving me an error on the "Taking too long to execute"

JASS:
p = 1;
while ( p <= 6 ) {
    //Do something... I forgot what it was
}


After about 2 days I found out it was because I didn't have [ljass]p = p + 1;[/ljass]...

It was the first day that SCII came out. I had just won 2 quallification matches (lost the other 3) I had just finished the first few missions (until the doc comes into the game) and I was like "Time to make a marine shoot zerglings... but I want it to be cool. Let's say that one out of five lings won't splat on the target. Instead it will land safely and happily chase and try to kill the marine that shot it." Eventually desided to make a stalker that shoots multiple missles (cuz I am that badass (irony) ) I fucked with something, not sure what exactly, and the stalker did indeed shoot multiple missles HOWEVER the missle's target was ABOVE the targeted unit. Or in other words, if a medievac is healing a marine, BOOM there be no medievac (cuz the dmg was 20 per missle, 10 missles) However... this unit is pretty much useless for anything else.

Back in WC3 I was working on my first jump ability.

I went into multiplayer on the map with some friends, got to level 6 where the ability was available, ran into combat, cast jump, and my character soars into the sky at a snail's pace, gently lifting itself up into the air at a rate of about an inch per second.

And it doesn't come down again.

It took quite a long time for it to finally launch off into the cosmos, too high for anyone to see it on the map anymore. We had a good laugh over that for a while.

wc3: wispwheels.
I was making some wispwheels variation and made a mistake in one, giving me a kinda bumpy wispwheel with teleporting wisps, yet it looked awesome as special effect for a skill :cool:

sc2: hmz... no real entertaining yet, but if I gotta choose:
I removed all doodads in a region, but this doesn't remove their footprints (damn sc2), giving me a labyrinth of invisible pathing blockers o.o

My most entertaining mistakes so far are probably
  • Screwing up the link between a projectile Actor and the model I wanted to use for it, resulting in my Marine shooting big white orbs at everything :D
  • Using 'At Effect' on an Actor Event for my periodic damage aura's visual 'burst' effect instead of 'At Caster' resulting in the graphic appearing on a random nearby unit instead of on the caster... was very confusing to see a big purple blast appearing from an SCV who ran away from me :(

My most entertaining mistake was running into the SC2 editor without reading on how to even USE it and trying to create a unit.

Boy was that fun when I figured out what went wrong.

That happends all the time when I'm programming.

On-topic: I tried to make a mothership that shoots carriers that shoots interceptors, but I failed. It's not entertaining though since it doesn't work :(

i like the first post's entertaining mistakes, and less a few of the others.

i have not started to do anything with the editor yet.
i am still learning how to do anything.
in the meantime, can you please say your when you are supposed to instead of you are and you are when you are supposed to instead of your? if so, then your english will improve. i do not say i am when i am supposed to say my and i do not say my when i am supposed to say i am. and i would hope you would do the same. and do the same for other words too.

This is an old thread. Please don't revive old threads like that.

Also, on a side note, I never noticed SanKakU's post, but it makes about as much sense as:

Sorry, I was pissed and going through this particular section and the bad grammar in the title really irritated me.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
