Oh good, you're still here

For those of you who are still curious about my last blog, the answer is ludamad. Ludamad was the person whose party I went to.

It was fun. It was almost all programmers there. I've never been in a room with strangers that loved programming. I drove some people home, returned some peoples' wallets, and just stayed up late around some drunk nerdy people. :P

Anyway! This won't be a life update blog. Maybe I'll write something later, but not here. I'm writing this blog because I want to make a browser based game in JS/HTML5.

I took a preliminary look around at existing engines, and was surprised there were so many. Have any of you looked into some of these free engines, and if so, are there any you recommend? What I want to make is a game that is controlled like a very simple RTS. You click a guy, and click somewhere else, and he moves there, or interacts with something. I want to make a world that scrolls around the canvas, and allows for objects to be clicked, and moved around.

I was going to build something from scratch, but when I saw there are actual engines out there, I got very very lazy, and decided I just want to practically make something in the HTML5 equivalent of GM.




Birthday!

I'm heading out the door to attend the birthday party of someone here on 64Digits.
Guess who that member is, and you get a free non-banning.
But guess wrong, and you will be banned.

I'm going to edit this later to maybe have a 64D meet-up picture.




Pew pew

It's been close to a year since I've blogged! Lots has been going on, and lots hasn't been. I've got a girlfriend now, and I've been spending a lot of time with her, and a lot of time airsofting.

First, check out this game by a fellow airsofter:

Get it greenlit, and we can play it on a 64D gaming night. :D

Anyway, not much to say about what's been going on. Since March (or even before then, really), my life's activities have been revolving around my girlfriend. As the summer started to kick up, it's also begun revolving around playing airsoft games. I've started participating in MilSim events with a small group of other players. Not enough to form an 11 man squad (my favourite configuration at the moment), but we're getting there.

I now own something like 40 airsoft guns, and tons of gear.

Speaking of airsoft, I'm going to be heading down to Connecticut in October (Camp Bobriwka in Colebrook, Oct 3-5 to be exact), with some friends. If you happen to be in the area, or on my path down from Toronto (I'm driving), let me know!

This is mostly a post to get Noct Greenlight, because I really want to play it, as well as support a fellow indie developer that I know. Maybe I'll write some stuff about the larger airsoft games, for my own historic footprint, later. :)




Blog day!
Posted on November 18, 2013 at 02:33

24 hours have not yet passed since toast's proclamation to write a shit blog. So here's a quick shit blog.

For the past month or two, a lot of my hobby time has been taken up with airsoft. I've collected 30 guns and counting, along with all sorts of gear (from plate carriers, to comms gear, to helmets and BDUs). I don't buy just one thing for myself, but I buy stuff "for other people to use too" - at least, that was my initial excuse for buying all this stuff over the past couple years.

The other thing that I wanted to do, was to have tried everything. Different plate carriers and chest rigs, different guns, and even different mechanisms for firing. I'm still a long way away, but I'm working my way through quite a bit so far.

Now, with all this gear, I've actually started having people put this in their photography and film.

A little over a year ago, some of my gear was used in the photoshoots for these shirts (clicking on the actual shirts shows the images of the models). It was fun to be a part of, and even cooler that I got paid for it.

Then a year later, a guy asked if he could use my gear for a trailer for a TV show he wanted to pilot. That was REALLY cool to watch. You can actually take a look here (and donate if you want):
http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/waking-up-tv-pilot
I didn't observe all of the filming (and didn't do anything other than supply/help with the gear), but there were certain laws broken. :P

After that, one of the actors on that film, introduced me to a photographer, who's pretty popular around here. Apparently models are always asking if they can shoot with guns and stuff. Long story short, I've taken some of my guns into a hotel room a couple times so far, and there's more scheduled in the near future.





And lastly, on Friday (and again in a few hours), a girl is making her 4th year student film, at this fire training facility near Pearson Airport, and they're using a lot of my gear as well. It's a cool place - it's got buildings, cars, and planes, that they set on fire.

So that's what I've been doing. Organizing/cataloging my gear, transporting my gear to shoots, fondling my gear in my bedroom, trying to find ways to not behave awkwardly as a topless girl asks how to hold an MP5, and of course, actually shooting at people.




Heh - Also, Kilin is a mod
Posted on August 01, 2013 at 15:29

Well, I was informed by several people that I was unbanned by Cyrus, so today I had Kilin reset my password.

Thanks for only melting down most of the way while I was gone.

Update: Desertfox recommended that we just go ahead and make kilin a moderator already.
So, he has made himself a moderator!

Apparently a lot of shit has gone down in my absence, and Cyrus is pretty much on his own. Kilin has been doing a lot for 64D for the past few years (both community-wise, and on the back end), so this is one of those promotions that you could kind of see coming.

So yeah, welcome to the officially-recognized staff, kilin. :)
