2. After 2 years of work and no knowledge of code, I still launched my fox adventure game today, The First Tree!

    I love the art style

  • zzzthelastuser - 318 points - 1 weeks ago

    I'm currently playing it. Been following it since a year(?). Really beautiful game! I love the music, I wish it would loop though, because I like to explore a bit and after some minutes the silence kicks in (maybe it's intended?).

    I hope you don't throw the game code away now. I would really love to see more fox games in the future! The model and the art look fantastic. The gameplay mechanics exist and the obviously you know how to design beautiful levels. Add some (more) collectable and some small quests + jump and run passages + enemies.

    I also wouldn't mind if the fox made some noises in reaction to certain events.

     

    I know that this game isn't intended as a Jump&Run or full Adventure game with enemies. I think it's a good start and your probably gained a lot of experience. Hopefully enough people will buy it and you can consider making another game with this engine+fox with a more focus on gameplay than the story (it was neat though).

  • Brak15 - 1329 points - 1 weeks ago

    Here's a Steam page link for anyone who's interested! I'm happy to answer questions too, like how you can get started making games with visual scripting tools like Playmaker. I'm more of an artist than anything, so programming does not come easy to me at all. However, with the right tools and asset packs, you can make a game your own too.

    Edit: WHAT?!!! You guys pulling my chain?! Thanks for the upvotes, I will try my best to answer EVERYONE. Launch day is insane though, so give me some time.

    Secret good guy Steve is willing to play the villain to motivate you enough to spite him. Sometimes it's not enough to quit for yourself, sometimes you need an enormous douche to spite.

    That's really pretty hand writing. I write like I've spaghetti for fingers.

  • DoAF2 - 453 points - 1 weeks ago

    Or... you can tell Steve to fuck off for the next 365 days every time you want a cigarette.

  • Feenox - 90 points - 1 weeks ago

    This is going to be lost in the sea of comments below, but I had my last cigarette the day my son was born five and a half years ago. I STILL don't say that i've quit. I just haven't smoked in a long time. Quitting implies that you're done, but you never are with cigarettes.

    Just some advice, from one not smoker to another.

  • TheCakeDayLie - 21 points - 1 weeks ago

    Yeah fuck Steve - but as someone who is coming up on 3 years without, good on you. It will get easier, and you can message me if you need help/inspiration.

    I quit on April 20th, 2015 - entirely because of the inconvenience of buying a $14 pack of cigarettes in NYC when I was there for a conference. Didn't buy the next AM because of an early train home, and then didn't again the next day for whatever reason.

    When I realized I'd gone 48 hours without, I knew I could do another day, which turned into a week, a month, and eventually a year, which became multiple.

    I'm happy to be a resource my man.

Had to move across a nightingale floor with no sound. Failed them all.

The 618 Air Operations Center plans, tasks and executes airlift, aerial refueling and aeromedical evacuation missions throughout the globe. After disaster strikes, the AOC provides command and control for delivery of contingency response teams, search and rescue personnel, aeromedical evacuation, personnel evacuation, and humanitarian aid and disaster relief supplies.

    "When called, our Airmen are ready to respond whenever and wherever required," said Gen. Carlton D. Everhart II, Air Mobility Command commander. "They provide assurance and relief to those in need and facing difficult circumstances."

    The healthcare professionals, consisting of physicians, nurses, veterinary staff, paramedics, fatality management professionals, and experienced command and control staff, are part of the National Disaster Medical System which provides response capabilities to augment existing healthcare systems in affected areas.

    Here is one quote they had on the wall at the museum that really got to me:

    “I didn’t want that day to end, terrible as it was…It was still a day that I’d shared with Sean.” -Beverly Eckert, wife of South Tower victim Sean Paul Rooney.

  • shotgunsmitty - 526 points - 1 weeks ago

    I worked for a statistical research company that was contracted to go through every 9-11 call and plot data points to help improve the system in event of tragedies and emergencies such as this. During the project buildout I had to listen to a hundred or so calls...that shit hits home. I can still hear some of their voices.

    The company found out very quickly that they couldn't keep people in seats very long, most walked off the job the first day.

  • Spartan2470 - 239 points - 1 weeks ago

    Here is the audio of this call.

    Edit: Most of this video is of his wife, who shared this because sees the call as a message of hope. She explains:

    And you hold out this hope, especially for someone like Brian.

    Who, this is a silly way to put it, but he was a warrior. And just you just didn't believe that something like this could take him away. So you hold out this hope until it's validated somehow.

    And all I needed was that message. And I think he very selflessly left it.

    I don't think he left it until he knew that he wasn't coming home. When I got it, it was just so Brian. It was his final request of me. And his final way to let me know that he was gonna be ok. And that he believed that he'd see me again. And that's all I needed to know.

    It was...I'm thankful for it. So thankful for that message. Because, at least I know without a shadow of a doubt what he was thinking. That calmneess in his voice soothed me. So I do have that.

    And because it's on a message I'm able to share it with anybody that wants to hear it. And it's very powerful. He made very powerful statements with that message.

    Here's the original photo I took back in March.

    The image is of the Delta IV Medium+ (5,4) launch of the Air Force's WGS-9 satellite. I took it with a sound-triggered camera placed at the launchpad the morning of the launch. For more background info about the launch and camera info, see this comment.

    Tory Bruno, the CEO and president of United Launch Alliance, reached out to me a few months back with the idea to use this photo as a large mural in their lobby. Until I saw the initial renders of the photo, I had no clue how large it was going to be. I was truly blown away! I'm planning to go up to Denver later this year to see it in person.

    If you'd like to see more of my rocket launch imagery, as well as more images from around Florida's Space Coast, feel free to check out my website! I also post daily content to my Instagram page @johnkrausphotos

    Photo credit for the photo of the photo goes to Tory Bruno.

    This was most excellent and, pets aside, I want to try it.

    However, I'm not convinced that grabbing a pile of hot, mushy dog poop with your hand inside of a thin plastic bag and then carrying it around is so much better.

  • satanicpuppy - 100 points - 1 weeks ago

    On the one hand, litter boxes are gross.

    On the other hand, dog poop is also gross, and it's not confined to a box.

    On balance, I'll have to choose the low maintenance pet. Cat don't give a fuck if I leave for a weekend. Dog is going to wreck the house.
