When my brother told me that he was going to propose to his girl friend on New Years, I thought it was about time. She is perfect for him and they are so good together. So I decided to help him make it an extra special occasion. This is how I helped my brother with getting engaged.
Right before Christmas I got my hands on a 3d Printer. It is something that I have always wanted to play with. Understand that I had 4 years of drafting back in high school. Using Fusion 360 I had things up and running in no time. Now I understand why 3D Printing is becoming the next big thing for businesses and home use.
Today (My day job), closed the New York office. This is the reason we were acting a little funny the last few days, because we kind of thought they were going to do this. No severance pay. Just thanks for your time and there is the door. I was kind of lucky. They are keeping me on till January 26 to pack up the office, etc. With 5 kids right before Christmas kind of a bitter pill to swallow. Tonight, blowing off steam, drinking, smoking my cig’s and working on Tectuma.
Stacie is shaken. Me? After working there over 10 years and this is how it ends? Not mad, not upset. Just the heck with everything this weekend, I am having a good time. I think I need this. I will worry about where the pieces fall some other time. So if you want to chill with us, blast some good music and tell the world to go to #$%! come and join us at https://www.twitch.tv/tectuma Just PLEASE understand what is going on, and be ready for some wild/crazy streams for the next few days.
To say that building a massive multiplayer online role playing game is complicated would be an understatement. So anything I can leverage to make my life easier the better. When we got our inventory system there was a hookup to use the Easy Save system. I took a good look at Easy Save and found that it allowed you to save using the web to a database it was a easy yes. Easy Save made saving well, Easy.
You can find Easy Save on the Unity3D asset store here.
Well it’s Thanksgiving once more we gather around the table to share a meal with family and friends. As we head into the holiday settings this one is a good time to look back and reflect on things that we are truly thankful for.
Yes we have changed engines many times to get where we are today. We get asked often why did we switch from Unity3d and Unreal then back from Unreal to Unity3d. So I thought I would take a little time and go over the reasoning for the switch.
This subject was brought up on our stream about supporting your favorite streamer. There are a lot of different ways that you can support your favorite small twitch streamer some are better than others. So how should you do it? There are pro’s and con’s so lets look at a few.
Why we are using Inventory Pro.
We tried many different inventory systems and they all seemed to fall short of what we needed. Then we stumble upon Inventory Pro by DevDog. At first glance it looked cool but we have been fooled before by slick websites and cool videos. With the price tag of $65.00 (at the time of writing this) and 5 stars with lots of reviews we thought we would give it a shot.
It seems that more and more on the news, YouTube and Reddit you hear people screaming about companies turning loved games into nightmares with loot boxes and micro transactions. There is also hundreds of videos, post and stories etc about how bad it is. My question is how the heck did anyone ever think Loot Boxes and Micro-transactions was a good idea?
I tend not to have a lot of free time for gaming but I have been hearing a lot about this game Oxygen not included. But what do you do when you get sick. I used this time as an opportunity and got the game Oxygen not included.
