CONCORDIA LEM:
You've never played Sigmar's Garden? I thought everyone knew this game. You put the gumballs in a certain pattern, and--

ANATAEUS VAYA:
Gumballs?

CONCORDIA LEM:
Isn't that what these are?

ANATAEUS VAYA:
They're elemental proxies! Do not eat the elemental proxies!

does anyone know of any FOSS tools for working with files on playstation game discs? I want to revisit a long lost project I did back in high school where I extracted pre-rendered background images from a JRPG and reconstructed the scenes.

I pushed a new build to correct the behavior of the torus function. Also this means the current build now has the wheel model rewritten in Lua!

I have a public build of Tangerine on itch now if anyone is interested. Currently only the Windows build is available. This also is Lua-only at the moment.

I will likely distribute builds with both Lua and Racket embedded in the future, but I am waiting for several bugs in Racket to be fixed upstream before I distribute any builds with it.

There's two people working on the Linux port right now, and so I'm hopeful that I'll be able to distribute Linux builds soon.

Why Lua a̶r̶r̶a̶y̶s̶ tables are 1-indexed instead of 0?

The reasons:

It wasn't a thing yet (Lua is more than 25 years old)

And most of langs are 0-indexed because of the C influence, not really for a good reason especifically.

grumbling about flat design 

I really hate the new dark theme in visual studio 2022, what a step down from 2019's. Thankfully someone ported the old theme forward, but still.

Why are UI designers so dead set on removing any and all visual clarity? 😠

Explored github copilot,a paid service, to see if it encodes code from repositories w/ restrictive licenses.

I checked if it had code I had written at my previous employer that has a license allowing its use only for free games and requiring attaching the license.
yeah it does

I was planning on working on Tangerine today (because work holiday), but I couldn't decide what I wanted to do so I spent a few hours drafting up a vague project roadmap instead.

I put it here if anyone is interested: gist.github.com/Aeva/ab8c18201

While the layout was rough and completely untested, it gave us a foundation to start tweaking and building on.

Oh also, before all of this, I had some staple areas that I had already built that continued their way through most all iterations, like the park.

some people call it "TODO" instead of "wtf", but "wtf" is one character shorter! Efficiency! Productivity!

Ooh, exports to .obj files...
It's a short step to a 3Dprint...🤔
