"UrbaNebula-a.k.a-monster_urby" said:Truth.I'm beginning to shift into my late twenties and I'm so sad I've only now began to fully be aware of the fact that we're excellent planning and idea-generating machines but shit executioners. There are a plethora of reasons on my side(probably just human nature) but also because having a job steals so much time from the day from you that you absolutely must plan ahead to do stuff if you ever want something to be done. I imagine in your case, having a family and whatnot, it makes things even more complicated. I've imagined several projects I wanted to start and even a few I'm actively "working" on, and the failure to see progress is one of the biggest generators of depression for me.
It's getting to the point where I'm getting a load of new ideas for projects that I couldn't fit into The Core (not that I am looking to expand it any further, I'm all about finishing up what we have at this point.)
I've got an idea for a new mod I'd like to make and I've had the lore in my head for a few months. A whole new universe to play with, rather than using Valve's. Thing is, it will definitely need custom coding which means I would either need to learn myself or take on a coder to help me get things set up. Not something I am willing to even look into until The Core is out the door.
"Instant Mix" said:12 yearscycle might be at its end! On a more serious note, I do think that Half-Life or some story that is intertwined with the HL1/2 universe will make an appearance in the years to come. These things always happen. A lot of stuff is recycled in our world, or inspired from old stuff. First big example would be the renaissance. We can apply the same pattern to everything cultural. The HL games had such a big impact that there just needs to be more time left for it to be forgotten. I also think that economical reasons are at play. People who run Valve are also humans and probably the period 2007-2008 when the house-market crisis happened wasn't a particularly good time to play it risky with a game that could both bring little revenue and critical fury. I don't know if Valve has shares that can be bought on the stock-market or the shareholders situation but in such cases we know the drill: shareholders want max profit.
I was going to say maybe a map update should only show on the front page if the upload changes, but what would that do for externally hosted maps, and sorting in the map vault? Where does the "update" line get drawn, and how can it always be enforced?I came here to say basically the same thing but since you guys are ok with it, no problem then. I'm just not particularly proud of some of my works and only intended to update the links for Jessie

I work in an open-office with lots of ceiling neon lights. It's a pain I can't complain about, it's probably seen as a trifle.Striker said:Not sure I understand
That... looks cozy-er than my place. This is a shitty picture to sell yourself as an office worker.

Oh my God.Translation: Shit, once again I shall have to postpone progress of The Core.
Cyberpunk 2077 could be relevant to my interests, despite the only CDPR game I've played being The Witcher 3 which I thought was seriously over-hyped.First time I hear about this thing. Went to youtube only to discover that there's just a teaser, 5 years old. Now I have to read about Cyberpunk 2020. Has anyone from here played the boardgame this videogame is based on? (Cyberpunk 2020).
I AM FULLY ERECT!!Erect yourself somewhere else man, there are kids in here!
@Striker 15 Dec 15 (Waaay too late to comment, but w/e grin - )The soldering wire is actually a tube with cleaning paste inside it. Additionally I use some rosin flux to periodically clean the soldering iron. I don't usually have problems when the surfaces are clean, although I don't solder that often to be experienced in this.
Use more cleaning solution on those pins, that was a bad solder joint which could crack easily.
I send exam questions with whatsapp to my big sister when im in exam. She did completely ture, but sensei gave me 92 points. And i passedUh-oh. Please don't do that unless... you're truly desperate. Even then, it's like something you should never brag about.
