    How to form a plan in chess?

    I play chess online against other ppl on chess.com. I use the 'free' service they offer. After the game ended, you're presented with a simple (not 'deep') analysis of your moves. On every 'blunder' or flat out 'mistake', you're given a '8-10 moves' alternative, showing you a better way to resolve a tight situation you made a mistake with. You could possibly identify that situation at future games and have in mind that alternative the computer showed you. Sometimes the computer can't 'understand' where you're going to, or what you're planning, and will declare a 'mistake' where maybe you were luring your opponent in or something, but pretty much it makes sense when showing you an alternative to your moves. I found this method to be very good for learning how to identify 'game stages' and things that happen routinely in a game and have a 'map in my head' of possible things to do to have an advantage over my opponent. that's my 2 cents. cheers!

    Doom 3 Textures for Doom

    I downloaded the pk3 and set it up in DB2 as a resource. Then tried to use the textures in a wad but couldn't, they were all 32x32. I guess I should wait for you to make a different version with the textures in various sizes so they can be used in a map.

    Doom 3 Textures for Doom

    "dumb" question. I downloaded a .zip and uncompressed it. as a result I got a huge pile of .png files with all the textures. how to I fit all this in a .wad to be inlcuded as a resource for my own pwads? could I have a 'map-less' wad with all the textures, and have that be a requirement for my pwads? btw, to the OP, you're great man, this work is enormously appreciated, thanks a million!!

    [WIP] Linear 1 - check it out.

    I still have to add monsters/weapons/health/powerups/etc. but the overall architecture outline and playability is done. If anyone wuold be kind enough to download and try and tell me what they think, I'd much appreciate it. Here's the map: https://od.lk/d/118916878_02hUS/LINEAR1.wad it is a doom1 pwad, for zdoom in UDMF format. couldn't avoid having to inlcude 2 scripts at a given point. scripts, sometimes are an offer you can't refuse :p a few screenshots: the idea is to create a pwad that is extremely linear. the followup map will be in the same premise. I plan to make 3-5 maps to complete a sort of 'story'. I'll try to keep in a 'tech/industrial' style, and progressively work toward nuke/hell/outdoors and others. If anyone wants to jump in and help with the 'things' placement and difficulty level design, be welcome. Cheers, Pablo.

    Most recent movie you saw

    I just saw "The Bourne Identity". Damn! great great movie!! It's like the 'movie for splinter cell', in a 'doom-movie way'. very very recommendable.
  10. I'm making a map, and got this architecture done: I would like to put a 'woven wire' texture to block the player, so they can only look through and not get into the center sector. Now, vanilla grates are horrible, and completely out of place in 'techno' style wads. So my idea is to draw a new texture and include it in my wad. Is that an 'ok' practice? how much 'new textures' is ok to include? How much of a worse mapper are you the more 'new textures' you need to include? is it a sign of being a mapping god the fact that you make great looking maps without ever using a custom texture? I've seen fellows here in the forums say that doom maps are better when they are empty, and leave you to put in the map everything that should be there but it's not, with your imagination. I find that idea horrifying. Nonetheless, considerable. So: Should I just make an impassable line right on the edge of that sector and have the user 'imagine' the grate/wire blocking him? Any recommendations, ppl?

    Fidel Castro dead at 90

    A government chosen by the majority of the vote, that campaigned with a message of "union of argentinos" and respecting individual rights and not abusing of power, but that clearly had a whole different agenda. Argentine president won't attend Fidel's mourn, he's clearly aligned with "US interests", he payed hedge funds whatever we owed them the first minute he sat at office, and has already in-debted us with an all-time record-breaking loan. He's constantly, painstakingly destroying local jobs, he allowed overcharging house services 400%+, opnened imports of anything that could be produced domesticaly... the neoliberal handbook list goes on an on....!! Oh, did I forget? he has an indigenous brown woman, leader of a mighty and superorganized social movement, who is a fierce and most strong opposer to him, locked up in jail for no reason, with the UN clutching at our asses to haver her released. A white, perfect, blue-eyed, super-rich empresario, a golden boy of the oligarchy, they groomed him to be there, he's dooing everything Fidel-haters hate about Fidel.

    Fidel Castro dead at 90

    You're not free, not to think what you want and express it, not to orgnize against the system. With the prysm system online, you're not. Did you know of what E. Snowden spoke? Did you know that MIcrosoft, verizon, Google and Cisco, sponsored by the Pentagon and the NSA, ordered by Obama, created a software to follow anyone and know of their whereabouts at all times? They don't use that system to keep track of you or me, becasue we're insignificant and microscopic to them, but they did use it to follow presidents of european governments. What kind of sovereign leader can you be when another president from another country, who thinks it's the sheriff of the world, and has the 'manifest right' to police everyone else, is following you around, keeping track of what meetings you attend, how much time you stayed there and who else was on that meeting? What kind of business is that? Are you really FREE in the "free" world??

    Fidel Castro dead at 90

    Im not gonna believe the media. If you want to know *anything* about the government and how to get involved in it, in Cuba, go to the source, not the media. You can't change the regime in the US, you can't chagne the regime in Cuba. What's so *bad* about that?? Governmetn telling you what to do, just like anywhere else in the "free" world where trends and brands tell you what to do, what to think about, what to read, what to listen to, what to eat, what to study, etc. In the US you're not free to choose a different political system, not so different from Cuba. All that pisses off those who claim Fidel to be a dictator, is that he never kneeled in front of Washington. Nothing anyone said yet has proved that wrong. @Wild Dog I learned about this from a History teacher from Cuba. I'll link you to wikipedia in the lack of a better resource: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuban_War_of_Independence "(...)The Maine incident Main article: USS Maine (ACR-1) Wreckage of the Maine, 1898 The Cuban struggle for independence had captured the American imagination for years. Some newspapers had agitated for US intervention, especially because of its large financial investment, and featured sensational stories of Spanish atrocities against the native Cuban population, which were exaggerated for propaganda. Such coverage continued after Spain had replaced Weyler and changed its policies. American public opinion was very much in favor of intervening on behalf of the Cubans.[13] In January 1898, a riot by Cuban Spanish loyalists against the new autonomous government broke out in Havana. They destroyed the printing presses of four local newspapers that had published articles critical of Spanish Army atrocities. The U.S. Consul-General cabled Washington with fears for the lives of Americans living in Havana. In response, the battleship USS Maine was sent to Havana in the last week of January. On February 15, 1898, the Maine was rocked by an explosion, killing 258 of the crew and sinking the ship in the harbor. At the time, a military Board of Investigations decided that the Maine had exploded due to the detonation of a mine underneath the hull. However, later investigations decided that it was likely something inside the ship, though the cause of the explosion has not been clearly established to this day.[14] In an attempt to appease the United States, the colonial government took two steps that had been demanded by President William McKinley: it ended forced relocation of residents from their homes and offered negotiations with the independence fighters. But the truce was rejected by the rebels.(...)" Does this ring any "WMDs in Iraq" bells, anyone??
