    3D Printing

    Sculpteo is really nice, and their prices are really low for the kind of technology they use !

    3D Printing

    Hello, I received my first personnal 3D printer 2 days ago, and I noticed that we do not have anywhere to speak about that. I'm pretty sure most of you might be interested in this topic since it's basically 3D modeling, but for real-life applications I'll just start this topic with something I made today ! I'm currently preparing a move and I need to fix few stuff before I leave my appartment. The shower palm holder in my bathroom got broken recently, because it's made out of crappy plastic. I don't have the tools needed to make holes in a tiling wall, so I have to stick with the existing ones and I'm pretty sure I will not be able to find the same part with the same sizes. So I decided to take the brocken plastic part and make a simple 3D model of it : And then, I basically printed it with my brand new Creality CR-10S : (Original broken part on the left - 3D printed part on the right) Then, from the first try it just worked, I attached it to the wall with the original screws : And I added the original plastic cover that clips onto the 3D printed part and hides the system : And it just worked perfectly fine This is really boring and simple so if you have anything to show, maybe share it here for everyone to see it ! I'll try to make something better looking for the next one

    Yes, "just" that. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

    What's going on with your life?

    I had a Peugeot 106 with ~360 000 km, same kind of car as a Clio. I think a Clio is a good cheap car.

    Fortnite (new game by Epic Games)

    I've been playing Fortnite for 2 weeks, I didn't know the Battle Royale gamemode was free so I gave it a try. It's a really well-made game, the gamemode itself is obviously working really well (just as much as PUBG), but I really love how it differs from PUBG aswell. The visual style makes it really easy to spot ennemies and forces you to stay on the move. And, because you just can't hide laying down in tall grass, the building mechanic is really efficient to quickly build covers and avoid being inevitably trapped in the middle of nowhere. Btw, i love this systematic approach with building. The fact that everything you build has to snap to a grid was scary at first but you get used to it and play with it quickly. And the most amazing part of that is that everything on the map (except the ground) is built according to that grid, so that you can destroy everything (furniture, buildings, trees ...) When i first saw this game, i was like "wtf this is just a copy/paste from PUBG with simple building mechanisms like in Rust", and it probably was in its beginnings. But the updates and improvements seem to make this multiplayer game really enjoyable, fair and challenging. I just got my first Victory Royale in solo-queue 3 days ago and my first Victory Royale in Section (with guys i don't know that filled a squad of 4) yesterday. I very much like this game. If you haven't, give it a try and maybe if someone wants to play in Duo/Section, tell me on steam !

    The random model thread!

    @Vorontsov It's looking pretty nice, but i'm a bit surprised with the design of it. Usually, I believe the 6 wheels are here for a clever solution of some sort of suspension that works like this : it doesn't need any spring or anything and sort of auto-balance itself and can adapt to almost any terrain. So it seems a bit weird to see the 6 wheels on your model being directly attached to the chassis. Anyway, it still looks pretty nice and fits with your other recent models. Are you working on some game or something ?

    SpaceX successfully lands rocket after orbital flight!

    This is freaking awesome, Elon Musk made a big move here against the ones trying to discourage him with Tesla and SpaceX just a few years back. It's a shame the center core didn't make it to the platform, but it's still very impressive for the 2 simultaneous landings of the side cores !!! So that Tesla Roadster is going to orbit around Mars ?

    [HL2:EP2] FusionVille release

    Thank you for your detailed thought @FMPONE ! I'm quite surprised with your first point, because i actually tried to guide the player through its escape with lighting. Here are a few example : Same thing for the cog/gear : But yea, looking at the screenshots now it doesn't seem as obvious as i wanted it to be. 2. That's interesting i didn't even think that a player would think the objective is to reach the turrets but yes indeed that's something you do usually in HL2, you can always take down ennemies somehow and kind of expect to come back here later if you can't immediately. It is indeed an issue that i must take into consideration for my next projects. And yes the idea was that the player has control over electricity state for the whole room with 1 switch, it was more obvious when I was using the HL2 lever model but encountered another issue : the players only tried to pull down the lever because you never use it in both directions in HL2 So that's why I used a combine console with 2 buttons but it doesn't work as much as a big lever to tell the player how important it is. Louder sounds for the door and electricity changing state would have helped a lot i believe. 3. Completely agree about you with that too, this is something i regret i didn't have enough time to work on. GeneralVivi explained that to me, that it's just unnatural for a player to suicide, that there should be a carrot just as you said. And the idea i wanted to include was hanging platforms for maintenance/cleaning service, and the player would think he can escape by jumping on it but it would break and all of this would just be a sad accident. I fully agree with you and that's a regret I didn't have enough time to make it better. Your edit message is also very true, showing some sort of target the player has to reach is always nice (such as what marnamai did with the mortar). It was maybe doable, but i wanted the escape to be chaotic, unexpected from the player character (who is waking up by the sounds of metrocops trying to smash his door). Thank you very much for your message and analysis. Thank you very much @blackdog also !

    [CS:GO] DE_Breach - Released!

    I am just amazed by this piece of art since yesterday evening. This is incredible, a perfect balance, so much love have been put into it. Everyone should just play on it alone (no bots, no player) just to walk through it all. it's just great ! These were nice too

    [HL2:EP2] FusionVille release

    I recorded a gameplay video if anyone wants to see it but doesn't want to download the mod (This is more a "how it's intended to be played" than a gameplay video Turns out it's hard to guide a player to play exactly the way you want him to play )

    Mario Odyssey

    It's just amazing to play a Mario game in such semi-open environments once again. I just finished the main story but there's so much more ! I'm pretty sure i'm not even halfway done with this game (not that I aim to get all the moons but i just don't want to let it go yet !) And it's really pretty, and i love being able to play it exactly the same way as i played Mario 64/Sunshine but with even more available movements. It's really an amazing game. I see people complaining that this game is aimed at a wide audience and that the main story can be boring for some people, but i disagree with them because as you said FMPONE even during the main story you can find plenty of hidden moons and secret stuff. I got the Switch for this game and it's totally worth it already.
