Some random quick Mastodon tips which new people may find useful:
-You don't need link shorteners on Mastodon because all links count for 23 characters of your limit, no matter how long they really are.
-Make sure you include https:// at the start of website addresses so they will turn into clickable links.
-If you're using website Mastodon, you can switch to dark or light mode by going to ⚙️ Preferences > Site Theme > Mastodon Dark (or Mastodon Light). Some servers have even more colour options 🎨
-On the official app you can go to ⚙️ Settings and select Light or Dark there.
-You can report rule-breaking toots by clicking "..." on the toot and selecting Report. This goes to your server admin, and optionally anonymously to the rule-breaker's server admin too.
oops i got busy and didn't do much but here's an update
- flatpak works well, and makes it super easy to install on the deck (I'll probably submit it to Flathub soon?)
- added a systemd unit that starts crankshaft on boot, also works great on the deck
- added a built-in plugin browser, so you can install new plugins directly from within Steam with one click!
(and this is still all fully compatible with normal linux desktop)
here's the plugin browser working on the deck (as usual, sorry about bad video quality):
Next thing should be testing this in an actual game and then setting up the open repo
An appeal for help:
Trunk is an opt-in directory of people on Mastodon and the Fediverse looking for followers, organised into a large range of topics:
Anyone can ask to be added, and the admins of Trunk check the account (to screen out spam etc) and add them.
However, due to the need to check the contents of accounts, this Trunk only includes people who post mainly in English. It means they have to turn away a lot of non-English accounts.
The Trunk admins want to fix this situation.
Do you use a language other than English? Do you want to help make a version of Trunk in your own language?
The English Trunk admins can help you with the technical side, but they need people who speak other languages to moderate Trunks in those other languages.
➡️ Can you help? If so, get in touch with @kensanata who leads the Trunk project.
(There is a Spanish Trunk at https://trunkesp.chilemasto.casa but so far no other languages.)
Here is a simple "hard look at" effector
It works with "CameraEffectors" that modify the virtual camera's position and rotation (or anything you'd want), they work by adding them as child nodes to the virtual camera
I'm working on an analogue for Unity's cinemachine for #GodotEngine
Right now I have a camera that moves to the virtual camera with the highest priority
Algo que me gusta del Mastodón en comparación con otras redes sociales es que prácticamente todas las instancias (al menos las que me fijé) tienen una regla explícita de que no se permiten nazis. Nada de vueltas con prohibir comportamientos para tener excusas para bannear nazis. No, cero nazis, basta de pavadas.
