  1. I haven't been actively doing 3d work in almost 10 years and I've missed it a ton. I decided to enter a contest my city is holding to design a park installation that acts as a shelter for rain as Vancouver has a very large rainfall. As part of this I also bought a license to Houdini to make my submission so I was learning Houdini at the same time while I made this. I might have taken on more than I can chew but I vowed to have something complete by the submission date because I hate not finishing projects. I made it but I wasn't able to make a diagram explaining how to take it apart and p
  2. Correct, the lower down the list the harder it is to learn for an English speaker. It's interesting to see how high up Polish is. Just goes to show how little I know about languages :C This I find extremely interesting and this is one of the biggest reasons why I want to learn a lot of languages with different roots.. Even with what I know of Japanese now I find the way you say things changes the way you interact. They have some words that simply don't have an English analog so we have to explain the situation it's used rather than it's direct meaning. I found this also to be true
  3. Also playing MK11, waiting for ranked to start! Also I started playing Clash Royale again. I hate that I'm playing this. I would pay 20-30$ for this game without all the bullshit.
  4. I'll make it language #4 if I'm ever able to penetrate Japanese. It's a pretty brutal language for a French/English speaker to learn. Interesting that Polish is so hard to learn for an English first language person. At least according to this website https://www.effectivelanguagelearning.com/language-guide/language-difficulty
  5. I feel guilty now. I'm Polish and one of the only ones in my family who can't speak polish Also I agree Minos. Krakov is great and if I'm being honest. The women are indeed crazy attractive.
  6. Once I finish the remaning 4 RE's I have yet to play we need to make a discussion thread on this because I have some thoughts! I'm so glad putting off playing this series for 20 years is actually paying off. FACK Apologies. I hope I didn't hurt the experience for anyone. I'm forgetting how to internet apparently :X In the options section do you have any specific options to look for. One thing that I never am quite sure of is if I am supposed to manually enable a ps4 pro mode or if it just kicks in automatically.
  7. Not a type of music I've listened to a lot in the past but I am loving Yelle. This song in particular I think really helps explain certain types of mental issues. And then here's total other shit I'm loving
  8. This game is freaky as hell. I'm almost through.
  9. ^^ Funnily enough I'm also playing Dead Cells and RE2. You have good taste I just beat Dead Cells. The New game + is pretty hard. I'm kind of winding down on the game though. I played it at least 40 hours though so it's worth it. RE2 is stressful! All this high quality graphics and binaural audio really does a number on the ole ticker.
  10. Holy fuck this looks awesome. EDIT : And this is Vivi's game? Even more awesome!!
  11. So I only just started playing the resident evil series in the last year starting with RE1 remake. Looks like I picked the perfect time to start playing these games RE1 to me felt great. Even today. Hardly had any old-game UX issues. I loved it. Gonna try to squeeze in REZero before this comes out. Also playing RE4 remake right now (hopefully playing them out of order isnt a huge deal). If I'm lucky by the time I finish RE2Remake RE3Remake will be in the works
  12. So I decided to leave the games industry for a while. I'm working with the Unreal engine though so it's not a HUGE change. I'm in medical tech now. Senior programmer at PrecisionOS
  13. Interesting stuff about UT. I hadn't been following the internals of its development. When it first came out I wanted to get involved but my job involved me working on another custom engine and working on 2 AAA engines codebases at the same time is too much for my tiny brain. Regarding the questions about how they are making a bunch of money and why they can't just move people on to other projects. In regards to Fortnite. The game is super live now so the workload is insane. It's looking like even the general engine has taken a hit and development has slowed down a bit. There are some s
  14. Interesting thread. I can give a bit of information on this. Floating point precision issues tend to occur after repeated math operations on a float. I don't think float precision would be causing issues directly when using the grid because I would assume that when you snap to the grid it sets the position to some integer coordinate and then casts to a float which locks it into a form that a float can represent without issues. It's been a while since I've used the unreal engine but I'm going to a new job soon where I will be using it so I'm looking forward to getting back into the en
  15. UX is probably due to opinion. Scaleform is no more so we're in a bit of a weird time. There's not a really good solution right now (scaleform wasn't great but it could at least accomplish the job).
  16. If you can make a machine learning algorithm that can successfully fix unneeded header includes (and possibly reorganize to improve compile time) that would be amazing. I think the issue is that it would take too long to run. I've only ever discussed it in releation to genetic algorithms though as I don't really understand deep learning.
  17. Oh man that editor takes me back so much. I constantly crashed it or ended up in some sort of subtractive/additive brush hall of mirrors nightmare Looking forward to reading this
  18. I bought a switch for this, zelda and mario kart. I got about 100 moons and have not gone back to play since. I find the game to be whimsical and looks really nice but so far there hasn't been much challenge so I kind of got bored. I've been told the game doesn't really start until you beat it though so I do plan to give it another try. Maybe once the difficulty picks up I'll start to really like it. Definitely not planning on giving up on it! Now that I've beat breath of the wild I can go back.

    Games W.I.P Thread

    The main reason I was going to suggest a thread is that over time it becomes like a history of the games development. It's cool to look back at the original post and see how far you've come Totally cool to keep posting here though. It wasn't meant to be a complaint or anything.

    Games W.I.P Thread

    I was thinking the same thing! EDIT : What is the deal for that anyways? Do you just make a thread in the 3D forum for now. I wonder if a game blog forum makes sense. I guess the downside is it could spammed up real bad if people don't keep an eye on it.
  21. A programmer at my work has been telling me for months how much he loves Subnautica and asks me why I haven't played it yet. For the longest time every lunch hour he would take out his laptop and play. I bought a copy but still haven't tried it yet. Hoping to in Feb when I get a bit of time off. There's definitely a bunch of fans at Relic
  22. Dragon Ball Z Fighterz open beta It's hot fiiiiire. It's going to be my secondary fighter next to tekken 7. Glad it's good. Traditionally I always play one solo fighter and one team fighter but Capcom really messed up marvel vs capcom infinite so I was stuck just playing tekken (and umvc3 but the community kind of died when mvci was announced).
