Ok, didn't make the best decisions in some areas, but still surviving.
Not really thriving, but I think I do OK?
law question, patreon Show more
Question: Is using an icon/art on Patreon, considered commerial use?
It is used for advertisement and collecting money, even though not directly sold on any merchandise.
I am leaning to "yes", but are no lawyer, so I would like some more opinions.
Request for help Show more
A friend is in a not so good situation and needs some legal help.
Situation is as follows:
Artist got commissioned to do a logo (regular fees), relationship between commissioner and artist broke apart. Commissioner tried to get permission from artist to merchandise commission (not granted), artist does now want logo removed.
Commissioner claims they have full rights and don't have to take art down.
Commissioner is US citizen, artist is EU citizen.
Help would be lovely!
Frostpunk more complain Show more
Also again. That is less about the game itself, than the authors of the game, who try have no grasp of how reality is right now.
Because if the world freezes over, the working class dies first, while the upper class tries to ignore it simply and continue living their lives as is, while the middle class has to jump in for the working class and become the new working class.
Anyway, let's continue playing.
Frostpunk more complain Show more
Intro played and just
"class or wealth didn't matter"
For fucks sake, come out of your upper/middle class bubble.
If the world goes down, those least well off will feel it first and die and flee.
Then eventually, the warm homes of the upper class may grow cold, but they will make sure to control the riots and keep their standards until no working class is left and they die off.
Generally, I hate these plot methods so much, because they're unrealistic
Playing Frostpunk and even before starting a game I have a complain.
"Cities fell into anarchy and were eventually buried in snow" (adapted quote from memory)
You mean chaos. Anarchy is not a synonym for chaos. I know it is a very common misconception, but for fucks sake.
This doesn't have anything to do with the game of course, but just for fucks sake.
Things I did today:
Read out color palettes from PNG files.
Sort those color palettes by luminosity.
Created a palette that has the 8 xterm base colors as gray scale luminosities.
Using the base gray scale palette to create 4/8 color palette schemes and match all the color palettes I have onto those two types, so that I can use both interchangeably in code
More or less you can pick from over 50 color palettes now, in my game
Honestly, the most exposure I have to Twitter today is through my butt.
This isn't even meant sarcastic or ironic, it's just true
left politics, current trend I see Show more
Back in school my religion teacher (who taught everything but religion), made us all aware of the most dangerous thing.
Red painted fascism.
And yes, it is very dangerous and too common.
If you want to make people follow *your* way and refuse to listen to anybody and threaten consequences if not?
I have news for you: You're a fascist. And you just gave fascism a red painting, but you still practice fascism.
So please reconsider and listen to people.
Today is interface designing day and that also raises many questions about the capabilities of my game engine.
This is super hard, because I have to decide what is possible and what isn't.
Like should I keep the current interface and have a "normally" playable game or concentrate more on the view of synths and don't allow "normal" gameplay.
Reality about capitalism Show more
We don't need corporations at all.
The fediverse is a good example that many small entities are much better than one large one.
If we have many small producers, that is much better than one large one. Fuck even capitalism says that XD
With corps gone, everyone can produce and you get an explosion in products and new tech.
Without them things become a lot better, because they are made for one thing: grabbing money
