@PocketNerd Oh definitely, I'm reading it half because it seems like a really good read, and half because it's the inspiration for so much good stuff. Like in a Citizen Kane kind of way, at least how it was pitched to me when I saw it.

Whoa, just watched a youtube series about the Journey to the West and... It's like Dragon Ball, but I haven't read it yet and it also seems even cooler! Booked it (is that the right word? Like called dibs so I get to loan it next, yanno) from the library, can't wait! :tuturu:

@dd86k Ripcord is very nice! I wish it was free software.

Couldn't do assets:precompile for my Mastodon instance because it ran out of RAM. :ablobowo:

Gamedev help needed; boosts appreciated Show more

@rysiek Not sure if you were looking for single-user instances, but moe.neon.moe's server is located in the Netherlands, 1 user and the topic is game development / general. I'm located in Finland though, if you were looking for where the posts are coming from / where the instance is adminned from.

Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

VFX, tools, systems, everything.
Unity, UE4, Godot, Game Maker, any engine. Even custom.

I realized this morning that I've played 4X games more than any other genre by a long margin, yet I wouldn't say it (or strategy games overall) was my favorite genre. They are fun though, they just don't make me think about them for a long time after (like, say, RPGs). Weird how that is.

@CharredStencil It certainly feels very gamey-game centric. Like the old school thinking that games are fun interactive experiences based on skill or something, instead of artistic expressions.

Finally moved my Git server from Scaleway to one of my raspberries. Also upgraded from Gitea 1.5 to 1.7, a heatmap seems to have appeared at some point. Pretty neat, though the coloring of mine is completely wrecked by the 82 "contributions" today :blobcatsip:

tired: regretting using UE4 because of their licensing practices

wired: regretting using UE4 because it slows down my git server migration because god damn the projects are huge
