Everything Else / Audio Games
« on: May 02, 2014, 10:33:55 am »
i recently attempted to play the elder scrolls online with sound-only

for simple things like combat, it is possible to just listen to the position of the enemy and attack them, but you need something else when traveling or navigating the environment

'the vOICe' is software which converts greyscale visuals into a soundscape of corresponding audio, which you can use to visualize stuff, i've experimented with it a few years ago so i figured it might be valuable for recognizing landmarks and textures in-game which would help navigate

here are my attempts so far with ESO

Everything Else / Renaming of Martian Crater
« on: April 21, 2014, 12:57:38 pm »
a few months ago i named a martian crater (via Uwingu.com) some absurdly long gibberish name in the hopes of confusing future martians, but it was recently reported as offensive and i must submit a new name by Friday, April 25.

what should my crater be renamed as?

here is a picture of the glorious old name

« on: February 24, 2014, 08:48:42 am »
this is a low budget japanese show with 2 seasons about the hero yoshihiko and his party as they go on an adventure, similar humor to monty python, but in the style of old JRPGs

highly recommend watching it sometime

Everything Else / Small Housing, by choice...
« on: January 17, 2014, 02:26:47 pm »
i'm not sure if a single word exists that can accurately describe it, but it involves...

-Small Housing
-Self-Sustainability

i've had more than a passing interest in finding a way to combine these 2 things in the smallest space possible, which additionally provides electricity and water

i suppose it is the rejection of housing in the traditional, inefficient sense, and the adoption of efficient living strategies in smaller spaces, where there is not such a thing as empty space/blank walls or roominess

imagine you are designing a home like this, suited for your own purpose, i would like to know which appliances or features you desire...

what i can think of currently:
-electricity
-water
-heating/air conditioning
-refridgerator
-microwave
-sink + counter space
-sleeping area
-shower/bathing area
-toilet
-desk + chair
-clothing storage + extra storage
-spare floor space

for a brilliant example of something similar, this is the cube house, something from england being developed by a professor:

http://www.cubeproject.org.uk/

it has much of what a regular house would offer but compacted...

anyways i have an interest in at least prototyping something similar full-scale in the future, if anything becomes of it i'll update this thread

Everything Else / Phonetic English Language
« on: December 16, 2013, 04:51:45 pm »
many guides exist to help persons with spelling, they aren't languages so much as a phonetic format which you learn, they oft include pauses/breaks and special characters/symbols, imo the more intuitive guides make do just with latin letters, this is my attempt at a latin alphabet which could be used for an analog of english

it isn't a perfect phonetic analog for english, just an approximate alternative

the natural portion is simply the alphabet (single characters), it does away with q and v, replaces c with (ah) and x with (th-)

the synthetic portion just lists some approximate sounds that can be made by stringing the naturals together, some had to be defined and others make sense if you pronounce them, either way they should be intuitive

PC Games / WELKIN 4591, from China.
« on: July 25, 2008, 01:41:31 pm »
READ: This game has entered closed beta.

Welkin 4591, it is an MMOFPS being developed by OUTPOP Digital, and is based on PlanetSide.  Many people who once played PlanetSide are looking forward to this game, since it resembles PlanetSide in almost every aspect, and since SOE screwed up PlanetSide.  It is currently is an Open-Beta Weapons Testing stage, so there is still a lot of features not implemented.

Pictures



Chinese Wrestling, with vehicles, of course!  :P


PSP's! :D
Description

Basically a big war, between 3 empires, over planets and stuff.  You have access to lots of vehicles, armor, weapons, and there is no NPC's.  Everyone in the game is either your ally or an enemy, you capture bases and gain benifits and just try to capture everything for your empire.  I don't really know much of anything else because this game is in freaking chinese, and makes gameplay confusing.

Spore: Creation Corner / The Nubs
« on: September 15, 2007, 06:02:52 pm »
The Nubs  
Nubs, are highly social Sentient Beings that live in groups and do individual tasks, for the good of the tribe/family.  They have 4 nubs on their body, which make up their arms/hands, and legs/feet.  Their 'nubs' act as a form of tentacle, with good grip.  They can flatten the ends of their nubs to make swiming/picking up objects easier.  They have soft skin on sides of their heads, which enable them to hear and smell.  Their mouths are usually closed at all times, but resemble human mouths in many ways.  They walk like a pirate would if both of his legs were pegs.  They communicate in high pitched, drawn out noises that sound weird.
Information
-City: 40+ Individuals
-Tribe: 10+ Individuals
-Family: Group of Nubs, of all one kind.  In example 12 Blue nubs living together would be a Blue family.
-There is no male, or female Nubs, as they all have both male and female sexual organs.

Group of Nubs, along with a baby Mix Nub.
Four Variations.

Blue Nubs -Fishermen
Green Nubs -Farmers
Red Nubs -Hunters
Yellow Nubs -Traders
Mix Nubs -When two different Nubs mate they get a Mix. For example, Red Nub + Yellow Nub = Orange Nub

Blue Nubs work and live mainly in the water.  They harvest Natural resources from the lakes, oceans, and rivers that rule their planet.  There is a lot of wildlife in the water, but not where most Nubs live.  For them to work underwater, they use specially made underwater breathing helmets, with air stored in tanks connected to the helmet they wear.  They fish, collect minerals, hunt snails, water snakes, and collect eggs in the water.

Green Nubs grow food along cliffs/shores, and by the water.  They grow berries and fruits, occasionally nuts, when they are living on land.  The plants the green Nub is growing, are called Lut, they provide nutrients most other plants don't have, but they taste bitter.  Lut, is also the staple of Nub diet.  By mixing Lut and other berries and fruits, they create a lot of different foods, which they feed to themselves, their family, and tribe members.

Yellow Nubs.  They are merchants of Nub related goods, they trade to other Nub Cities, and Tribes, and Families.  Their goods are mostly food, grown by the Green Nubs.  They mainly trade food that is overstocked, but also when they get special requests.  They trade resources harvested by Blue Nubs also, as well as pelts, and meat, that the Red Nubs have gathered.  They don't all JUST trade, becuase when they don't have anything to do they will help out other Nubs, such as Red's Hunting, or Blue's Fishing, or Green's Farming.

-Other Info (Adult) (Young)
Height: 3.1/1.1 Feet.
Weight: 63/21 Pounds.

A tribe is generally made up of 10+ Nubs.  Nubs live in gigantic bottom heavy, hollowed out Acorns, which they spruce-up, add windows, a tower, and a bottom entry hole.  They have a tower on top, which they use to get on top of their home, and to allow air to get in.  There is generally 5-6 Nubs living in a single Hut, along with a couple children.  Children generally never come out of their home, except for gatherings.  They are fed by its tribe members until it is pre-adult, takes about 1 month.
