    Do You Own a Device Capable of Playing Audio CDs?

    I have an external CD player that I can plug into different devices. No more integrated CD drive on my PC.

    You are 110% on to something with this art style. I love it. Reminds me of an abstract 90s/2000s cartoon that was never made. Keep it up!

    Mappers, what do you wish you put more time/effort into?

    The state of my initial submission to Jimmy's Isolation is a skeleton in the closet, but I have since refurbished it; although I actually intend to refurbish said refurbishment. That map suffered from a lot of glaring issues, but the one that actually affected the design and play of the map itself was progression points, signaling, connecting, etc. and making these elements more palatable to the player. Sensible progression is something I generally struggle to achieve in most of my works. That and the idea that each map has to be its own "complete" experience, with a satisfying ramp up that culminates in a Big Fight(tm). That was a good thing we addressed in a recent-ish chat in the ye olde Heckenforgen. Overall I wish I put more effort into crafting experiences that satisfy me instead of worrying about external factors or obsessing about perfection, whether that be the perfect fight, a flawless and genius layout, etc. I'm better at than I ever was, but still improving with each release (when I manage one, that is ;p ).

    Yuegong - Moon Palace (abandoned map)

    Elend!! Good to see you again buddy! Holy. crap. I had seen a few screenies of this behemoth before but I don't think I quite got the picture of just how huge and gorgeous it had become! Whatever you choose to do with it, I'm just happy we got to see the results of what you had put into it! I too upvote the idea for a walking sim map (as I have a clear bias for them). It's detailed enough to be concept pieces for a real facility's architecture portfolio if you ask me ;p Would be sick just to take a stroll through these areas.

    Trouble getting ideas for maps

    Oh hey it's me a good while ago, haha! Lots of good stuff in that video! Update: if you find yourself struggling for ideas, perhaps you aren't allowing yourself to fail? Failure can stop us from attempting things because they aren't "good enough" or have been "done before." So what? Try the first thing that comes to your head and allow yourself to fail fast! That way you can get the ball rolling, which is much more important to creativity than the "perfect" idea!

    Most recent movie you saw

    Most recent: Nightmare Before Christmas. Most recent that I haven't seen before: Barbarian and Smile Granted, I've maybe seen NBC like once and hardly remember it, it was good fun to watch it again the day after Halloween with my sister. Sorta the same type of ritual as watching The Grinch Stole Christmas for the holidays. While I don't usually go for horror, I took a shot on both Barbarian and Smile. Barbarian was less horrifying and more disturbing conceptually, while Smile was horrifying both for its concept, jumpscares and overall message. That being said, and how I'm usually not one for horror, I would absolutely recommend both. Barbarian sorta stretches into cheesy territory, but has an interesting story to tell, and Smile is worth it just for the pure shock and terror as well as the overarching moral of "trauma will follow you."

    A Response To Arturo's Statements

    Guys EXACTLY like the man you're describing are fucking PREDATORS and get off on the concept of leading young men (I presume like yourself) down the same miserable and out of touch overly-intellectualized right-wing bullshit path they themselves follow, and they're very appealing to school-age men like yourself because they seem so intelligent and in control of themselves. It's why right-wing extremism is cropping up everywhere, and it's why young men are becoming ever more violent and problematic than they would've been on their own. It's your Jordan Petersons, your whoever this guy is you're going on about, it's the grifters selling miracle products online to miraculously "boost your testosterone" to make you a perfect man; it's all the same bullshit. Don't buy into it. Once you go deep enough down the rabbit hole you find out that they're bastions of a dying world view which makes it it's business to snuff out all the "PC pussy stuff" that "these damn liberals do nowadays." It gets into very sketchy pyramid-scheme, psedo-religious cult nonsense and into turning people into ideological warriors because they can sling words around and speak to young men's vulnerabilities. You're clearly a sensitive person and a critical thinker. Don't be turned into the "sheep" you say you are...because it's not because of your "SJW agenda" you feel that way, it's because of men like this "great academic" you so admire who make it their job to keep you separate from other people and believe their worldview is your only option that you feel that way. You're being USED at your most vulnerable, and you're at a literal crossroads right now. You may have come here to debate and try to defend whatever this guy is saying, but that's exactly what he wants you to do. To be his right-wing warrior. Don't let him have that power over you. I was led down this same miserable path before, and MANY men nowadays are doing the same. Don't let it be you. These people want you to believe sunscreen gives you cancer and that eating only red meat is a miracle cure. They're idiots and there is NOTHING scientific about them. Do yourself the BIGGEST favor you can do at your age and fucking DROP them and their shittiness.

    What are you planning for October?

    Honestly I'm gonna get so much more into Fall and Winter cause I've always bugaboo'd those seasons. Now that I'm a bit older I'm realizing how beautiful they are and that there's plenty to do, even if temps are dropping. Plans for pumpkin pie, movie watching (I'm not a horror person, but I might try some out), hayrides and maybe even a Halloween party with coworkers. Always love when the pumpkin ales start hitting shelves. Looking like it's gonna be a stuffed one this year! I also am really liking the concept of celebrating the weeks leading up to Halloween and easing out of the spooky season rather than the one-and-done treatment Halloween usually gets. Then everyone's gears switch immediately to Christmas and we forget all about the harvest season. Well, not this time! It's gonna nightmare before Christmas vibes right up until a few weeks before the jolly season!

    Another "John Romero is about to make..." thread

    If it's a "new IP", then the Daikatana 2 jokes are really quite lost on the very people who make them.
