23:57 <Wirepony>
23:57 <Retl> Wirepony: I am totally OK with this
23:58 <Retl> 10/10 would play as in videogames
23:58 <Wirepony> 5/10 because not Angry Marines
23:58 <Retl> …and stare at their hind end 80% of the time because that’s how adventure action games go
23:58 <Wirepony> digital butt syndrome is real
23:58 <Retl> So the question now is
23:58 <Retl> how do we get that into a game

[Time passes]

00:10 <Retl> See now I have this super armoed Rarity on my desktop
00:10 -!- Wirepawny is now known as WireFTLpony
00:11 <Retl> And I can’t stop staring at this leg and thinking
00:11 <Retl> “that thigh must be huge aw yis”
00:11 * WireFTLpony sends four mantis troops and two boarding drones
00:11 <WireFTLpony> XD
00:11 <WireFTLpony> big meaty thighs
00:11 * Retl dies to whichever was the weakest sent thing. ded
00:11 <WireFTLpony> She doooooo
00:11 <Retl> but the thing is it’s just a letdown waiting to happen
00:12 <Retl> She’ll take off the armor and them BAM
00:12 <Retl> normal size
00:12 <Retl> And I’ll be all like
00:12 <Retl> šŸ˜ PUT IT BACK ON
00:12 <WireFTLpony> a powersuit like hers could be multiple CM thick
00:12 <Retl> In real life, maybe
00:12 <Retl> In cartoons, I have no idea
00:12 <WireFTLpony> since it has systems _in_ it
00:12 <Retl> YAY SYSTEMS
00:13 <Retl> wait what systems
00:13 <Retl> does it have an explosion generator
00:13 <Retl> hot
00:13 <WireFTLpony> I apologize for booty rocking

[More time passes]

00:22 <Retl> claws and crotches. I should like. go make endless diamonddog / hellhound / sanddog characters
00:22 <Retl> and they will never wear pants
00:22 <Retl> ever
00:23 <Wirepony> pants are for assholes
00:23 <Wirepony> and the covering thereof >.>
00:23 <Retl> And like because of NOT DYING they will wear super fancy armor from the waist up. But that’s never going to get drawn ever
00:23 <Retl> …
00:23 <Retl> unless it’s super-massive-thigh-power-armor
00:23 <Wirepony> …
00:23 <Retl> but it only comes up to like. Just below the buttocks or something
00:23 <Wirepony> armored thigh-highs?

[The above was noted so that I don’t forget to eventually make one of those bipedal doggie creatures with POWER ARMORED THIGH HIGHS prominently displayed crotch and optional top garments. Probably not for PnP, but for SOMETHING]

What I did: Flailed at code with partners for an hour and a half. Figured out a process for importing the new, improved models. Did not commit those changes. Partner discovered a bug where script references persisted in unity after a scene was destroyed (we mistakenly believed having all gameobjects destroyed would destroy the script instances with it) when references were given to events by listeners. To resolve it, we purge all listeners when the scene ends.

Also, today was fried chicken day at the cafeteria again. Or Cougar Den or whatever it’s called. Not sure I ever mentioned, but every day that the cafeteria serves fried chicken, the place is jam-packed, it’s incredibly difficult to find a free seat without basically hovering over someone waiting for them to leave, and it’s not uncommon to run out of plates or cups while going through the serving lines. Was mostly tasty though.

Had a moment where I questioned why the dead things we cook and eat (like fried chicken) don’t really look like muscle and flesh and blood vessels and stuff. Later asked on IRC. Someone pointed out that meat for food has the blood drained away, making the vessels less visible, and meats like steak are almost entirely muscle.

Our ‘record and playback maze solver’ bot was finally completed and worked successfully. Though it was very much prone to misalignment since the playback did not response to whisker-touch-detection, and one had to physically pick up the robot and place it back as close as they can to where they believed the original start position to be.

Experimented with Dreamweaver in Digital Multimedia. It’s OK. Maybe nice for filling content, but in general I’d rather just have a text editor to keep the html tidy and manageable instead of generating DOZENS OF LINES OF CRAP when I wanted to just have a video tag and a source. I like the WYSIWYG editing in WordPress and whatnot just fine, but I never bother to look at the source there, and don’t plan on having to tweak or manually maintain that section.

Drew some more doodles. Reminded I’m still not too happy with the familiar look anymore. Didn’t reboot to Ubuntu where I have drivers for my scanner, so I haven’t scanned it yet. Calling these people back about this job tomorrow. For certain. Because there’s only two weeks left, and if they wait much more to confirm the work, I’ll be graduatedĀ before I can start. šŸ˜”
