@dulsi @zinnschlag I'm the biggest defender and fan of open-source (as I also build with and for open-source), but I'm not that optimistic about Mastodon.

@Cheeseness @lertsenem Same! Using Godot since 2018 and every single time the scenes changed I would rage. That's why I finally fixed that behaviour.

@zinnschlag Yeah that's the thing I see. A lot of people wanted to come after the Elon issue, but it was just on the heat of the situation. The chicken and egg problem persists.

@jb I didn't say that because I want to see the "likes/stars", just because it felt it was posted on a void. It does actually costs time and attention - unless I find a way to cross post. Then of course I'm fine posting in multiple locations.

What a contrast. This post had almost 100K impressions on Twitter. I don't know the stats here, but considering only 3 stars, I'd say almost no impressions.

Dunno if it's worth spending the time and energy posting here and on Twitter at the same time.

@mcoorlim And FotoSketcher results are better than Topaz Studio. Thanks for the recommendation.

@Yin I'm curious to see if it will work for you, marketing wise. 🤔

Unfortunately TikTok is the most annoying (nonsense? useless?) thing ever for boomers like me. Plus both the app and the website are super bloated. I also tried to get the hang of it... but I simply don't see the value.

@mcoorlim I really recommend Topaz Studio 2, which can make 3D renders look hand-painted (you need to tweak the filters, but then it works amazingly well). For example, to the left my 3D render and to the right I added filters with Topaz (the image to the right uses a render from another angle, but it's just to show the idea)

It's worth mentioning that I have way too many side and personal projects, as I like to experiment with every possible tech, engine, language, tool, etc that I can find around. From code, to art, so on and so forth.
