*Solved*
I need to confer with some fellow mappers about a map element I have in mind. (For HLDM.)

The idea would be an elevator of sorts, but without any moving platforms. There would be a square platform, with other levels of square platforms directly above/below. The players should be able to move upward/downward through the platforms at will, but also be able to walk across the platforms normally. Movement between platforms should be smooth, probably controlled with gravity. Ideally, players would be able to shoot through the platforms.

What do you suppose the best way to try to implement such a system be?
Main issues:
- Being able to pass through a platform one can walk and stand on.
- Movement between those platforms.
- Consideration of multiple players. (If it works apart from this, suggest it anyway. I might still have a use for it.)

Worst comes to worst, I'll just make regular elevators, but hey, if we can come up with a working system for this...

The Nintendo Switch has been formally revealed. Thoughts?

(Yeah, I stole JeffMOD's shout. What of it?)

So, now that the big three are all out, what are people's thoughts on VR? Software and hardware. Does anyone own any of them (PSVR, Rift or Vive), or is anyone thinking about getting one?

Discuss!

I find myself in need of a new graphics card, as it would seem that the one I have is likely the source of my recent computer woes.

Unfortunately, I know absolutely nothing about graphics cards or where to find info on them. Thus, I turn to you fellows.

I'm looking for something at least comparable in power (or better) to what I am replacing, which is an AMD Radeon HD 6800 (or something like that, anyway). Moreover, I'd like it to be relatively affordable, around the $200-$250 mark.

Can thou help me?

Oh man, I forgot about these! (Ep1) (Ep2) (Ep3) (Ep4)

They were, and are, incredible. (Despite featuring a way-out-of-date me.)
