I like the idea that already owning a VR headset is an answer to "how do you feel about it"

Not randomly reviewing, just taking a look at every map in the vault, from start to finish. Haven't gotten to any of those ones yet, but I will! :)

Hopefully fixed whatever I messed up for that to happen.
Had to redo from scratch because Sledge got funky.

I’m going to suggest the same thing I’ve suggested before: if it’s getting on top of you, try finding a therapist. A good one will help you to keep yourself together and manage your brain and your mood when it’s working against you.

As a big fan of the Rat Hunt concept, I enjoyed this map. Via very thorough sweeping, I found all but 1 goddamn button, which I eventually just looked at the RMF for. It wasn't especially well hidden, I just overlooked it somehow :roll:

My only criticism is that some of the breakables aren't especially obvious as breakables, especially when there's other objects of the same nature in the map that are visually identical yet aren't breakable. Otherwise, quite "enjoyable"!

I can't tell if "And she also looks a lot like you!" is supposed to be a blessing or a curse =P

Also apparently I never commented on this, so I feel to make the above joke I probably should throw something in.

There's not a doubt in my mind that she'll grow up well with you behind her, Urby.

I’ll be sure to give all of these a play sooner or later. Or, more likely, in a stream several months from now!

Commented 1 year ago2018-11-03 09:01:47 UTC in journal: Sp00ky math... Comment #101602
Well, as I said, I've never seen colons used for division at all. I don't know about this switching order of operations malarkey though. Sounds like something that would ruin the very foundations of mathematics as we know it!
Commented 1 year ago2018-11-02 12:02:48 UTC in journal: Sp00ky math... Comment #101598
Potatis: In your third>fourth segment, you do subtraction/addition before division. 9+(126:3-(22)+18):2 = 9+(126:- 1):2 should be 9+(126:3-(22)+18):2 = 9+(42-22+18):2

I got 28 in my brain after a little while. I'll note that this is the first time I've seen dots and colons used for multiplication and division. Is that common?

Commented 1 year ago2018-08-08 08:28:57 UTC in journal: Mapping while napping Comment #101435
On a somewhat related note, this journal title led to me sitting here by myself saying "mnapping" over and over. It sounds like the human equivalent of any given video of animals making sound while eating.
Commented 1 year ago2018-07-02 07:38:12 UTC in journal: The Whole Map Vault schedule Comment #101335
@NineTnine: Doing plain ol' videos has crossed my mind, but having it live does have some advantages. Namely, it gets other people involved without having them take the time out to be explicit guests, it makes it more interactive, and it makes it more entertaining for me. Changing format into straight video would give more freedom to edit it down into a more palatable form, but... I'm not yet convinced it's worth it.

@JeffMOD: If size is an issue already, then that's a point in favour of cutting the length down a little bit. It would make it a little less of a process to get the recordings up, too.

@Archie + Instant Mix: I suppose I'm not against the idea of letting others take the reigns for a little while, provided someone was willing to put in that time. (If they were to use the same format and livery, that would take a little setting up.)

Honestly, I'm not looking to have this hiatus be a long one. If anything, it's an issue of communication. I do have enough time to do them, but without having set times that I can reliably do them at each week, there's two problems: One, without it being on a schedule, I'm likely to become a bit tardy and put it off (which is more a me-problem than anything else, so not really an actionable issue). Two, it's harder to make it clear that there is a stream before the stream happens.

When it's at the same time each week, people are able to know that and don't necessarily have to depend on, say, my shoutbox message 20-60 minutes before it happens. What I actually need is a more direct way of letting people know that a stream is 'bout to happen. If people can't watch (or don't want to), they can not watch, and that's fine. But if people can and do want to watch, they need a way to know that it's an option! And I'm not sure how I can make that happen.

(Also, as a side effect of all this, I'm not going to be able to do them at my usual relatively-timezone-friendly times of day. Unsure how that will affect things at this point.)

I guess it depends on what circles you run in, Pebs, because I’ve seen a lot of this garbage. Like, just a stupid amount. It’s amazing the amount of anti-woman sentiment being displayed around this thing.

From what I’ve seen, it can be divided into two camps: firstly, the it’s-not-historically-accurate camp, which... well, 1: From what I understand, it’s not historically inaccurate. Even just going off of the debates I keep seeing, about the only part of the war in which women were absent was the British frontline, which would be quite some minutia to get hung up on, since 2: As Urby grandly pointed out, Battlefield’s realism is skin-deep at best. To call it completely realistic would be to ignore vast amounts of what is going on in those games. 3: Pretending women weren’t a part of the war is some serious erasure of the part they played, and either takes some brazen ignorance or brazen sexism. It’s hard to tell the proportions of both.

The second camp are people who are just straight up angry that there’s women in their video games. Emphasis on their. The kind of folk who believe video games are made for people like them and thus don’t need to cater to any other group, and in turn feel whenever that representation rears its ugly head, the design team must have been forced or coerced by feminists or liberals or whatever. I don’t even know how someone gets into this kind of mindset. The design teams for games like this are huge and there’s no chance there’s no diversity in said teams. You can bet top dollar that a lot of those people fight tooth and nail for any kind of ideal representation in AAA works, since management knows that as soon as you start rocking the boat (which should be an exaggeration) people like this come out of the woodwork.

People who say there’s too many X in any given media - women, queer folk, etc - they don’t want one or two less. They want none.
