Music / Black Midi Thread
« on: July 02, 2021, 01:54:47 pm »
Black midis are musical pieces made by madmen. When transcribed as sheet music, the paper is turned black by the sheer volume of notes. Some of them are several terabytes long, and some sound pretty awesome despite the ludicrous number of notes.

One of my favorites is 9KX2 by TheSuperMarioBros2:

Anyone else here like black midis, or is anyone just now discovering them from this thread? Feel free to post any you like.

Spore: Sporepedia Exchange / Dorite's Spore Stuff

Hello, I play spore. Here is my sporepedia profile:

I've been working on a personal project to make as many organisms from Sagan 4 as possible (as well as several rejected sophonts) for a complete Sagan 4 Alpha sporecast. I've recreated hundreds of species so far and have been working on recreating all bearhog plents. I might recreate some stuff from old gamingsteve projects at some point if I remember to do so, just for the heck of it.

I am also the maker of a pretty significant mod. Remember how maxis employees said fur was impossible? Yeah, they were wrong.

I can upload it to a host and PM you the link. I'll do it some time thia s weekend.

If memory serves, personal messaging was disabled for users bow a certain post count threshold due to a spamming incident.
I'm looking forward to it!

I guess I'll post around some more to build my post count. Edit: I hit 10 posts, so I can send and receive messages now!

I'm an artist for Sagan 4 and I draw things a lot, here's some recent examples

I'm not sure what the local culture is for posting things but if people want to see more I can post more?

It looks like a backup of the wiki itself. And possibly a Wordpress blog and something called "Sagan forum". I'm not entirely sure what these all are. I was never really involved with this project. The file was created in late July 2017, or at least that's when I received it. It is 845MB and I labeled it as "never delete" so I guess those were the instructions given to me. :D
Could you send the "Sagan forum" thing to me over private message? (not publicly, as if it's anything like the wiki backup, it might have passwords inside which would be very bad to share with everyone) It looks a little small to be the whole forum backup, but it might be valuable nonetheless.

EDIT: Looks like personal messages are disabled here. In that case, do you have discord, or perhaps somewhere else where private messages are enabled?

Hey! Have fun and be safe.

You ever talk with Hydromancerx? He should be discoverable on Steam or Discord under that name. He'll talk to you all day about that stuff if you catch him at the right time. I think I have some old backups of Sagan 4 that I kept for the sake of archival. Will have to look around though.
I actually have already been in contact with Hydro for a few years now! I literally talked him into making a new species yesterday lol

What backups might you have other than what's on the wiki? I'm interested in forum archives and rejected species especially, as the majority of those have been lost.

I noticed there has not been an update posted since before the Limbo. Here's a summary of events:

- In 2017, LadyM left and the Sagan 4 forum and wiki went down. Though a backup of the wiki was made, it was supposedly too corrupted to recover, and the last backup before that was made in 2011 and only went through Week 23. A backup of the forum was also apparently made, but it is lost. Sagan 4 moved to the Speculative Evolution forum.
- Throughout 2017 and possibly into 2018, Mnidjm attempted to recover data and hosted a backup wiki, but this eventually went down and contact with Mnidjm was lost. Sagan 4 became lost media.
- During 2018 and early 2019, an attempt to restart Sagan 4 at Generation 54--the last generation to occur here on Gamingsteve--was made. However, this fell apart quickly due to nearly all artwork being missing.
- In August 2019, using a YouTube video Hydromancerx had uploaded with the artwork of all Week 1 species, members Bufforpington, BlackTalon, Vailnoff, RyanKoopa, and Coolsteph founded "Sagan 4 Beta", a reboot which split after the first mass extinction event. This is where I entered, becoming the first new member to join Sagan 4 since before the Limbo. (Sagan Bot, a discord bot for browsing organisms developed by non-member Squidy and hosted by myself, was also born)
- Sometime in late 2019, Mnidjm's backup wiki mysteriously went back up. However, it vanished within days and contact with him was never made.
- Shortly afterwards, I started doing some digging and found the Week 26 backup, and with help from non-member Squidy, all species descriptions through Week 26 were found intact in plain text inside.
- In early 2020, contact was made with Mnidjm and I informed him of the data recovery. Throughout the first few months of the year, work was done to bring back the original Sagan 4, now dubbed "Sagan 4 Alpha". It was randomly discovered that there was an open slot in generation 160 (the project was already into late gen 161), which I filled with the first new submission of its revival.
- A new Sagan 4 forum was made and Sagan 4 Alpha was reopened. Members wanted to continue Beta as well, so both timelines have continued since.
- Earlier this year (2021), Sagan 4 Beta was moved off of the Speculative Evolution forum and on to the new Sagan 4 forum, bringing the Alpha and Beta communities together.

In short, after some hardships, Sagan 4 is still alive and it even had a baby! Here are the current links:

Beta Wiki: (yes, it has the canon url, we have yet to fix that)

Hi, I'm Dorite. I'm a random artist who's mostly here to lurk and be a self-proclaimed Sagan 4 historian (the project was originally hosted on this very forum). I probably won't talk much, but hey, I'm here.
