    That was my first impression, too. "From out of the Hellmouth loomed a terrifying visage, and it was called Cubix, the demon of Unattainable Storage and Defiler of Warehouse Mazes..."

    Boom (generic limit-removing)

    At the current rate of production, maybe 2025. Honestly, I'll probably end up asking for help. The project (tentatively "The Outer Worlds") is planned not unlike Scythe -- a batch of 3 or 4 similarly-themed levels, then a radical jump to another batch -- so it would work nicely if a few additional developers want to pick a theme and run with it for a few maps. I was hoping to get a little further along before I created a project thread, though.

    So, you want to add hundreds of tiny, gameplay-irrelevant sectors, huh? One word: shadows.
  5. As is typical, the band was very adamant that no one take any pics/video (though they relaxed that restriction on the last song); consequently, I don't have anything to show related to my original topic. Here's a shot from the finale: It was my first time hearing the new stuff, and it was incredible. All told, they played for 2.5 hours or so (9:00 to 11:30) with a 12 minute break before the final 3 songs. I was a tad disappointed they didn't play "Sober" / "The Patient" / "Right In Two" but it was a phenomenal experience.
  6. I realize this is both random and pointless, but so is most of the internet. Anyway, Tool played in St Louis last night, and their set list included two songs off the forthcoming album. For the record, both songs sounded amazing, but I was equally struck by the fact that the background imagery and light displays *really* reminded me of @skillsaw's Ancient Aliens (lots of teal/pink, and a pyramid silhouette against an orange-red sky). Anyone out there see the show? Thoughts? More generally, has real life inspired any Doom-level flashbacks?

    Life has clobbered me lately, but I'm still digging around the Ancient Aliens texture set to see what I can unearth.

    The transitions in the red boxes seem very noticeable, but on closer inspection it may simply be a result of the light level difference falling perfectly on the same seam highlighted in blue.

    These look awesome -- I particularly like the vines. Two things jump out, though -- what's with the two kinds of nukage? And it looks like there is a floor tiling problem with the darker sector in the front left of the first screenshot.

    Snapmap: Any way to make items fall?

    Awesome, thanks! I'll play around and see if I can't come up with something I like.
  11. I am attempting to make it appear as though an item is falling out of a hole in the ceiling -- I can spawn item just fine, but is there a way to apply gravity to items spawned above the terrain such that they smoothly fall to the ground?
  12. Tipper is new for me (thanks!), and "Far Away Trains Passing By" sees pretty heavy rotation on my iPod. Also, @Joshy / @Grimosaur -- thanks for the tip on Aphex Twin; I have at least one of his albums, but I'm very much enjoying the link above.
  13. I am familiar with both -- I own several SF albums -- but I'll have to check out GC a little closer. Also, it's quite possible that you have the best profile name in the history of the world.
  14. Not bad at all (it reminds me a bit of Sefiros) -- but not necessarily what I'm looking for, either...
  15. Given the wide variety in the "What are you listening to?" thread, I have a question for this community: namely, I am looking for music I would describe as "ambient electronic music but with some rhythm and/or backbeat -- stuff that isn't in-your-face techno/trance but is more than random sounds or chords." Ideally I'm looking for a group or album as opposed to individual songs, but I'll take what I can get. Here are some representative examples: Aes Dana - "Gatewick" Carbon-Based Lifeforms - "MOS 6581" Khetzal - "Glaciales Lacrimae" Thanks in advance, folks.
