A few weeks ago they showed what Pink Diamond looks like in Steven Universe.

Needless to say there was a complete tidal wave of fanart . Some had clearly poured their years of experience into making wondrous works of art. Others, uh, tried. A lot of people were shipping her with her Jasper. There were a few who just wanted to draw emo pics of how sad it is that she shattered. Then there's the inevitable group who want to go to a drawing site to type walls of text about their fan theories. This, however, is by far my favourite piece from the influx.

as it turns out, the side effect of having way too many credits worth of courses in one period is having ridiculous amounts of assignment and other useless crap to contend with too

There has to be a better way to generate grayscale noise with a perfectly flat histogram than opening DOSBox, writing a program in QuickBASIC, running it a zillion times, taking screenshots of each one, and sewing them together. But finding one would have probably taken even longer.

Suddenly I understand why everyone has such garbage workflows.

You don't need to open DOSBox and write it in BASIC.
It's fairly simple with C/C++ and OpenCV or any other library that can export images or video files.
I guess it'd be easier to use and learn Python (+OpenCV) for a one time thing.

Woulda taken longer than I was willing to spend. I already had QuickBASIC installed from when I found a disk of my old programs and wanted to look back over them. I no longer have the patience to learn a whole new language just for something like this; even if I want to make a game or something down the line, there are simpler tools for that now that are probably also better coded and optimized than whatever I could cook up.

I was mistaken

I am required to code in Fortran and Pascal for an assignment in the year 2018, not basic

Quite a few ICs for hobbyists use BASIC. The existence of things like Arduino boards may well drive those kinds of ICs into obsolescence.

I just had a game idea


an indie style Sims clone, except either top-down or single-angle isometric, with all sprites in a sort of a retro style, possibly themed around a specific time period like the cyberpunk future, complete with more directed gameplay in addition to standard life sim stuff


I'd play it

Actually, forget the life sim, make it GTA3* instead

With interior and other segments as a sidescrolling shooter game

the overworld would be in 3D and so would the vehicles, but the characters would be sprites, viewed at a relative angle similar to that of Chinatown Wars. this would mean full camera rotation and also a modern lighting/FX setup, which'd help a lot

cutscenes would be a series of still images (so called "CG" but obviously stylized as hand drawn), complete with varying levels of detail, important scenes could be completely drawn out, while lesser ones would be more like the "actors" of the scene laid out on top of a background. optionally with voice acting or just the text scroll. the elements in the scene should move dynamically a bit to make it less static

the city would be relatively flatly laid out due to the perspective. the lower part with all the crime and grime would be divided into multiple districts controlled by different parties, with different feels for each area - one area could be a site for a major hotrod/etc. racing scene, another a relatively cleaned up area with more foot traffic and hovercars, one an alien-infested organically formed and isolated weird town, etc.

meanwhile there'd obviously be the upper level, built on platforms and on top of the ground buildings, forming a large, clean, utopian city with foot traffic and hovercars in their own little floating lanes in the air. this'd be where all the rich and decent live, while the ground area is dark and full of pollution, and rainy and such

the sidescrolling weapons action would be fast and loose, and you'd be allowed a lot of freedom with it, jumping around like a maniac and going all guns drawn into battle, or playing more carefully and even stealthily to avoid undue attention

with a lo-fi look and relatively polygonal/low detail buildings and vehicles it could really be very cool and doable, although merging two distinct gameplay systems like that would be a bit of a questionable decision.

The interesting thing about a cyberpunk themed city where the rich areas are built on top of the poor areas is that the city will literally collapse if the poor areas aren't invested in.

Who was the first to come up with that concept? Fritz Lang, I would guess.

yes I like that part of the concept too, because it'd imply there's some method to the madness that is the lower level
