Updated My Journal (2018W27)

Argentina is out, I cant order stuff from amazon-japan anymore and I failed hard on those Bob Ross tutorials.

On the art tutorials I just don’t have the necessary tools to create the effects that is required. So I did art study on kagami instead. The study was interesting and I should do more of those. I was somewhat successful in mimicking his style, but it’s not refined enough to be published.
For some reason I’ve been really sleepy this week so not as much progress as I wanted, still some.
I took some images from ixut, the UT stats parser. Both terminal and www -views are covered.
g2p progressed, and now the player can now attack the AI! That function is not done yet as attacking on a sector that has no enemies will crash the game and that is not good :P.

Special Message / Rant

And last I noticed that Fred & Paul aka Toys for Bob (The Creators of Star Control 2) are being sued by The Crimson Corporation (Stardock). To me SC2 holds a very special spot on my heart as it was the very first PC game I’ve played (that and Dune 2) there was probably others, but those were more in line of Alley Cat and Tetris where SC2 and D2 were real games.
I spent so many hours on those. I remember that I used to draw all the ships since I didn’t have a PC and then went on and explained all these adventures to my grandmother. That was the beginning, at that time I couldn’t even understand that much English so we never finished the game.
But later in the year 200x the game was open sourced along with all the assets with the blessing of Fred & Paul. Since it became opensource it was ported to every system ever. To this day I write “sudo apt-get install uqm” on all my Linux boxes.
Yeah, uqm as in “Ur-Quan Masters” since they cannot use the name “Star Control”, which is not owned by the original creators, but the assets are.
Well now Fred and Paul, the original creators are being sued by some corporate bastards that wants ownership of their work!
To me as a wannabe-gamemaker this is just wrong… Could a corporation sue me for ownership of my work? Crazy world we’re living in.

So I will join the good fight and donate $100 to the war-chest!
It’s time to *GO! GO!* and *dance*!
