81 - Depressing update Alright, it has been a while. Like almost half a year, things have been rough. The good news is, I’m trying to start work on my game again. I managed to open up Unity and Visual Studio and look around the code and start to get familiar with it again. It’s slow, but it’s a start. I do have a job now, so I can’t work on it every day like I was a while ago, but if I can start making progress again, I’ll be happy. So I guess things are going to get personal now. Things have been really stressful and depressing. Like I said, I did get a job, but it’s at KFC. Bit of a step down from my last job, but it pays the bills. I just couldn’t find a job in my field, so right now I’m going to stay at KFC for a year or two while working on coding projects on the side. Then I’ll try to get back into dev work. I might stay at KFC longer if I get my own store, you get a percent of the profit as a general manager. . . . 8/1/2017 12:34:47 AM
80 - Working out, week 3 Well I still haven't lost any weight, kinda a bummer, but I’m not going to let it stop me. Over the last week I worked out even less. I’ve just been really tired and sore even if I don’t work out the day before. I think I should maybe start taking daily vitamins or something. I eat pretty bad, I’m super picky, as I’ve mentioned before. So maybe if I start taking some vitamins my body will be more willing to do stuff. Really I don’t have much of an excuse, I just need to push through this. So this week I’m going to really try hard to go at it. That’s the point of the work out blogs, to make sure if I start slacking off I can fix it within a week or two. So there’s nothing to bummed out about. If I gave up at the first sign of failure I’d never get anything done. . . . 2/26/2017 2:58:37 PM
79 - Infections and needles So yesterday was sorta fun. I got to see my wife, but my kid was sick. They had to come to my place to pick up the HSA card so my son could see the doctor. Luckily my mother-in-law wasn't with them, and I managed to convince them to let me go with them. Ooh right, don't worry, my son is fine. Just a sore throat and a small ear infection. We caught it early enough that the meds should take care of it. What does suck, however, my wife forgot to bring my longboard. It will make getting around a lot easier once I get it, ooh well. . . . 2/21/2017 3:31:38 PM
78 - Crew combat finished Alright, so I finished up crew combat today, so that's good news. I didn't really work one anyone one big thing today. I guess that means we will have to cover a bunch of tiny things. Before that let's go over a few of the things I did. Show who you are mousing over, show when a crew member dies, fix selecting, and a game over screen. Let's just start in order of that. Oh also, during the stream I talked about design ideas, why I picked patreon, and some other things, so you can watch me ramble over on my youtube. . . . 2/20/2017 7:28:05 PM
77 - First time getting drunk Well I really have nothing interesting going on in my life right now, so let’s tell a story. But first a small update on everything. I’m still working on my video game, progress is coming nicely, and I’ve started playing/streaming heroes of the storm. It’s nice to just chill out and play some video games with friends again, it’s been a bit. Also I’m about to start a Pathfinder campaign with some friends where I’m the DM. Alright so, the first time I got drunk, like many, this happened in college for me. I never really did anything in high school. Never smoked cigarettes or weed. The only time I ever drank in high school was a little bit on new years from what my mom would give me. I guess college was a bad influence on me, if you been reading for a bit, you might remember I started smoking in college as well. . . . 2/20/2017 1:30:44 PM
76 - Working out, week 2 So I havn’t been working out as much as I have wanted. But the reason why is because I have been walking a fit amount. I guess that’s good enough. To go donate plasma alone, that’s a 40 minute walk one way, and I do that twice a week. Then the vape shop is about 40 minutes away, in the other direction, and I do that once or twice a week. I’ll admit I don’t want to work out, it’s not very fun. Also I’ll admit I only worked out once last week. I didn’t want to work out the day of or before donating plasma. Well whatever I still feel like I'm making some progress, better than nothing. Also I have put on a little weight, maybe 5ish pounds. I think that’s because I’m eating more cause I’m exercising. Maybe I should try working out for longer, and just walk slower, that way I burn more fat instead of just working off my current energy supplies. I don’t know. But it is kinda fun trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t. . . . 2/19/2017 3:36:39 PM
75 - Crew combat animation So yesterday I went over how I did the pathfinding. Today, I got that all ironed out, added some animations for walking, and tweaked a few other things. So I'll be covering in detail how I got animations working, but let's quickly go over some other things I did. So I got selecting units with function keys to work, I basically copied over the code from before, so nothing new there. Also I got it so instead of having to click the sprite to target, you can also click on the little unit display. Figured it would be nice to be able to also click something that isn't moving. . . . 2/15/2017 7:07:27 PM
74 - Math is important Alright, finally got that music licensing, so I don't have to mess around with finding music any more. Granted if you have some music you would like me to use, let me know. So today, I mostly worked on getting pathfinding working for the crew combat stuff. I did some other things, but the bulk of it was pathfinding. I also got some of the crew display stuff working for the crew combat section and got selecting working. selecting here works more or less the same as the ship on ship combat. . . . 2/14/2017 8:04:10 PM
73 - Working out, week 1 Alright so I’ve been working out for a week now, it’s been rough. I’ve been pretty tired or sore most days, and just all around grumpy. I’ve managed to keep it up though, but I switched to doing it every other day instead of every day. Not sure what I should do about that, maybe once I get more in shape I’ll move to every day. I haven't made much progress yet, but it’s only been a week, I don’t expect it to happen that fast. I’ve read some things telling me I should try to adjust my diet, and fuck that. While I’m sure I could lose weight quicker and all that, I’m just not going to bother with that. For one, I’m a very picky eater, so most food I just won't eat. Another thing is, counting calories and checking nutrition of everything, that’s way too much effort. I’m just going to eat the same way and keep working out. . . . 2/12/2017 5:54:00 PM
72 - Placeholder art Alright first time working in a few days, feels good! I didn't get as much done as I wanted because I'm not feeling very good today, but hey, progress is progress. So Mostly what I did today was get some art in place. This art is just temporary, just to help show what things should be instead of squares. I got the little pirate animation from here. For the button and burlap sheet, I just googled something and pulled it off that. . . . 2/9/2017 4:42:06 PM
