  1. About to graduate tomorrow. I learned a few things along the way
    1. web design fun
    2. database design sometimes fun
    3. mobile design not fun at all
    4. game design was fun when I had a few chances to do it

    Now to uhhh... figure out what to make of this.

      @minespatch I got a whole lot of tears :wilson_cry: But I don't think I understand the language behind Dart any more

      @nome that actually eases a lot of my anxieties to know that. Thank you!

      Think about how many web pages games companies have to make. There's the marketing pages of course, but also things like web page ARGs, account sites (e.g. accounts.klei.com), forums, you name it. Plus quite a few games do their whole frontend using webtech (LoL has a webby frontend that launches a separate binary to play the game proper, but others take a more moderate approach and do their UI using web tech embedded in the game engine).

      Personally I'm terrible at that look&feel stuff, but I agree that database design is fun. We do a lot of that when we do stuff like the item server (which is just a lot of business logic in front of a database when you think about it).

      Isn't "game design" sometimes appreciated even if it has nothing to do with the job itself, if it can be used to do "gamification" or UX stuff in regards to the work environment? I've seen and heard boss people talk about that stuff before but don't think I've explicitly seen it mentioned in job applications or stuff.

  2. Did we ever get a compiler for DST mods for Mac?

  3. Making pixel art for our game, since we've moved to Pygame/Tiled. This is what I've made in about an hour and a half?

      @minespatch ? I mean, they are tiles that we're using in Tiled.

      @minespatch Or do you mean things like the cobblestone and grass need more variation? Because I totally can get that.

    3. minespatch

      I wasn't sure if you created the tiles or they were handed to you.

    4. Not_Wilson

      Nah, I've been making them but they're really rough right now.

  4. Boss battle of this unity thing: one teammate knows one of the C languages and not javascript, I know javascript and not C, and one teammate knows neither and only python so I'm tryna find a python plugin in Unity that's not in alpha or behind a paywall because I dont think the professor will allow that.

  5. My teacher: Alright guys. You're gonna be working on your Capstone project. Remember it's open ended. Do literally whatever, just know that it's gonna show what you learned.

     

    My classmates, who are sensible people: I'm gonna develop a web app!

     

    Me, on 37 seconds of sleep and 20 ounces of builder's tea: One moment, I'm downloading Unity.

  6. What I expected in 2018: I'll come out of college being a master in programming!!

    What I just did this morning, in 2020: I wrote fizzbuzz in lua and that was a miracle in of itself honestly

      The worst is when brand new languages take the terrible decisions their predecessors made and decide to just copy them. The other guys didn't know any better, what's your excude Rust? :p

  7. I'm alive I promise.... Just been trying to balance the final semester with a new apartment. AAAAA-
  8. Oh my goodness I'm so excited I'm going back to Canada again for graduation.

      @minespatch I mean, to graduation, yes. To Canada? I dunno. I'm going with my partner. It'll be their first time in Vancouver.

      And good luck! :encouragement:

  11. Today we learned local vs global in coding. Made me think back to all the variable declaring in mods. Oh dear... I kinda wanna look back and make sure I didn't misuse things...

    1. Mobbstar

      I bet it will turn out you accidentally 360 no-scoped the entire code.
      Get it? "Global" and "local" are "scopes".

      Sorry for the wait but how is it going there?

  12. Know what drives me batty in programming class? People do reach out to me for help with coding, but if I reach out to classmates for help I get "idk lmao" or "I was gonna ask you actually". I spent all of Monday evening helping classmates with homework, but Tuesday night panicking because I didn't understand the problem we were given, even after asking the professor for clarification, and getting those "lmao" responses from classmates. And so I have to go without help through this major and pretty much have been for the past year and a half. I did very good last year but I'm worried for this year, especially in an industry where asking for help and working with others is so vital to keeping your job. I worry about all my classmates and want them to succeed but I'm starting to worry that if I keep at this, I'm gonna fail trying to keep everyone else afloat too. It'd be dishonest to also say "Sorry, I'm not sure how to solve the problem", though if I do know the answer and they don't.

    I'm sorry to vent here. I don't know where else to put this where people will understand. I'll delete this later. I'm just in a bind where I'm trying to pick ethics or survival.

      It's good to vent, I'm glad you can talk to people that will understand.

      Is the problem that your classmates are stupid, lazy, or both? It sounds like they're lazy.

      If they sincerely never understand the assignments, there's not much you can do, other than try to mentally prepare them for dropping out sooner or later.

      If they're lazy, you should just deny them further help, reminding them of their rudeness if they ask for help. Perhaps some will get it and apologise and sincerely try to return the favour in the future. If not, then you're just cutting wasted time. Might sound brutal or selfish, but there's no point in working for somebody else who doesn't want to do you any good in return.

      @Mobbstar I think some of them have a low morale from the instructor's low morale. No one wants to be in that class, instructor included. It's kinda sad. Sounds like what I'll have to do though. I need to worry about myself at this point.

      @Mobbstar apparently RemapSoundEvent can be used on client side mods? This true?

      Oh cool. I could update the mod then maybe. After I rest tho I had blood work.

  15. After watching Cutthroat Kitchen, I realized that the Gorge had some inspiration from it.
