    What do Americans think about Scotch?

    In Star Trek, Scotty's original name was "Scotchy"... but the studio balked at so obvious a reference.

    What is your opinion on Youtube red?

    In weak tribute Steven Colbert, these types of monopolies shall henceforth be referred to as "monalmostopolies". ;p

    Okay.. lmao. Totally hadn't thought about bugs, but yeah... hard to imagine a "perfect" system. But maybe that's where quantum-computing will take us? Maybe a QC system could run a sim of the sim... and only run the final result when found to be bug free. Such could be the use of QC. /dreams

    Why does mapping for Unreal engine suck so hard?

    Really? Six brushes? You sure it's not like Unreal where you get 6 planes? Because if it's not, then it's not CSG... it's just an automated tool for making rooms with brushes. /just_curious

    /devil's_advocate And you determined this how? This presumes there are zero exceptions to "cause and effect".

    Couldn't find a screen... so linking a walk-through vid. It's in the first few seconds anyway... player looks left and right... 1 brazier on each side.

    I've watched a few different WWD shows including the movie, but never have I heard/seen mention of dinosaurs living alongside humans. So yeah, maybe someone is thinking of some other series?

    If the rooms in SnapMap could be thought of as nodes, we need a node editor for sure. Maybe if Doom sells well and is SnapMap is popular, we'll see more tools?

    Why does mapping for Unreal engine suck so hard?

    Current method is to use models for detailing an environment... while Quake uses simple brushes for pretty much everything. About the only model (obviously excluding monsters, items, etc.) used in Quake is the animated flames for the wall-sconces. Quake's start map is a simple example... today, those braziers would probably be built in 3DSMax, or Softimage, or Maya, etc... and that would allow them to be more detailed (generally) than the surrounding environment. You then load those brazier models into the level editor, as opposed to building them directly there, and you place them the same way you place monsters or items. The actual level brushes placed with Unreal use CSG, or "Constructive Solid Geometry. It's a weird way of doing things if you only know Doom or Quake editing. Unreal's CSG is usually just for defining the world limits... floors, walls and other gross geography, while detail comes from imported models built in other programs.

    The loss of ly ... does it matter?

    Without context you can't build sentence structure without know what your responding to. As an example, ask yourself what would have to be said to you to spur such a response? Did someone ask if you're a cop? The answer should be "no"... not " I'm not a cop." The latter is redundant.

    Why comparing an almost 20 year old game to current gen Unreal? Also pretty sure your story about making brushes is user error. Have you even done any tutorials? I have. Never encountered trouble making any size brush (snap to grid etc.). Not to say you can't also do brush size stuff manually... but not required... afaik... been a few years.

    I don't get it. 3 quotes and no comment make it hard to decipher your aim with just a laughing gif. /curious
  14. Someone mashed up all the trailer footage into one long new trailer... and I gotta say... this mash-up finally made me feel the magic... lol. Still... I'm looking forward to it more now. Star Wars: The Force Awakens supercut trailer combines every scrap of footage into one place Edit: Okay, seriously... I've already watched this more times than the full trailer... so awesome. Sets a much better tone.

    That Doom movie amiright?

    Gotta say, I was disappoointed when it first came out. Also gotta say, whenever it's on cable I put it on. Something comforting about it... something soul-foody about it. Maybe it's just cuz of the Rock and Urban... I dunno, but it's fun to watch really casually.

    Agenda? What? Shitty docs and poor animation aside... what the hell? An agenda? Did I miss a big conspiracy meeting?
  17. For the record... I don't like it either. I thinks lens-flare works better when it heightens an otherwise ordinary shot, such as when someone is looking out of a spacesuit through a glass helmet. The flares would then be an artifact of the helmet and not the camera. The helmet's glass flares woulld actually obscure the characters vision and this can help provided a sense of anxiety based on having a semi-obstructed view. Flares for arts sake... or because they just look cool, is tacky, gaudy,... chintzy even. :)

    Happy Back to the Future 2 Day

    Yeah... you know why. ;P

    Wow. Badly animated and badly acted. Why do people have such difficulty faking a decent newscaster or scientist? Both of them never feel real in movies and tv series, etc. And the animation of the shark attacking the whale is so sad. Timing is way off... no sense of mass or scale... at all! It's as if animated by elementary school kids.

    How do you say...?

    It's spelled "luxury yacht" but it's pronounced...?

    The loss of ly ... does it matter?

    I love that language is analogous to life... language evolves to suit it's environment. There is no right or wrong when it comes to language. It's not a rigid system like math... instead it's dynamic and ultimately based on utility, clarity and preference. What does matter is being understood. And so long as we keep our current recorded history, we'll always have "ly" to look back on... in the same way we look back on any number of archaic words terms such as welcomest, doth or thou.
  22. Only time I recall Vader ever losing his lightsaber is when Luke lops his hand of in front of the Emperor while above Endor's moon?

    My Sketch of The Doomguy (5 hours of work)

    Nicely done Trace. The extra time spent on it really shows.
  24. That's exactly how it's supposed to work. The light flare is not AT the light source... it's an artifact of the lens, which is in-front of the hand... so yeah... it "better" be on top.
  25. Trailer made me nostalgic but didn't move me in a... this movie will rule... sort of way. I saw the original Star Wars in theatres when it first came out... 23 times. Many years later and episodes 1, 2 and 3 crushed my Star Wars spirit. I now find it very hard to get excited about any of this... especially after what J.J. did with the last Star Trek... he had the whole physical universe open to him and Trek's driving theme of exploration... and instead he chooses to go with terrestrial terrorism... I guess because it's current and relatable... yay. >_> So I'm going to wait on this... I will not see it premiere day, but will wait on word of mouth before I bother. I'm hopeful of coarse, but not optimistic.
