Faces, Decals, Prints / Alternate Letter Prints
« on: December 30, 2019, 02:05:47 PM »







i showed off some of these in BCC and took some requests
to use these, drop them in your Add-Ons folder like normal, disable Print_Letters_Default and enable one of these.

im aware the preview icons aren't updated

this is what i use to generate these if you want to make your own! edit the style portion of index.html and load it in a browser, use #render at the end of your browser's address bar to render out previews of all characters, and #save to download all 53 generated images (i'd advise that you have your browser auto-download somewhere, it gets a little dicey). extract/copy-paste/etc Print_Letters_Default, drag all generated images into "prints" within it, and boom. (some fonts may require some manual tinkering)

http://blloops.theblackparrot.me/loops/MBG_-_classic_vibe.ogg
http://blloops.theblackparrot.me/loops/MBG_-_beach_party.ogg

EDIT: shell's loop doesn't appear to have that stereo -> mono phase distortion effect with the synths because it's actually only one channel there. when the pads kick in, both are playing, and the kick where the trumpet starts playing, it goes back to one. if you just combined the 2 channels for the whole song, that section would sound strange.
edit ur loops :cookie:

out of curiosity how much does it cost to get servers to use for hosting, and how much is the rent for it? what i'm trying to say is what are the costs
if you're hosting only like 1 server, it'd be like $5-$10 month depending on who you buy from and if you're wanting to use windows or not

I also once had an idea to rent out server space to other hosts to use for a certain amount of days. The average serve r popularity lifetime is like 2-5 days so instead of just paying $7 for a week of players and three weeks of 0/32 you could just pay like a dollar for a 4 day slot and once that ends it switches over to someone else who would hopefully host a different more entertaining server

I thought of doing this with some friends once but it required some planning so we ditched the idea
i was thinking about doing something similar as i've got a pretty much always-idle 4 core 4GB RAM server (mostly got it for storage reasons), i could easily rent out 7-10 slots for servers (could host 7 at once just fine) for a week at a time.
of course i wouldn't make it as in-depth as glass would, maybe just a custom shell, temporary accounts, and sftp. these things don't have to have a big major detailed gui lol

What bothered me was the stance on any evidence remotely pointing towards a user or IP being behind the attack from Badspot himself or otherwise being called "finger pointing". I understand that this was an attempt to keep people from going on witch hunts, but when you have a space set up to talk about whats going on and you're actively removing discussion on the attack or what Badspot is reporting, I stop seeing value in that space existing at all.

It just seems kind of stuffty to set up a space to talk about a subject and then moderate what people can say about it especially when that information is coming from a credible source.
we only have a channel like that to prevent it spilling over into the main general channel. a lot of people in that discord couldn't give a single stuff about the forums and a lot of people will have that channel muted the second it's opened and/or becomes active.
if you feel like the channel ends up having no value at all (which it hardly does), then again, just mute it. it's not the main focus of the discord at all.

i'm sticking by the "no finger pointing" rule as i don't want witch hunts started in that discord. i don't want to be the one responsible for letting it happen in case accusations end up false, and i know the rest of the staff feel the same way.
we let major drama be discussed in there so long as whatever is being discussed isn't specifically targeted at someone, even if it's just an IP or "who's the guy doing the ddos" or something.

The discord is too strict on having drama involved, and for me to get warned for just jokingly tell people to shut up which counted to my ultimatum when I found old stuff on another user led to my ban is already showing that the administrators in question cannot handle things at all. I do admit, I have used an alt so I do not believe I should be unbanned because apparently using an alt is a crime against humanity. I can see that Conan has a good server and good intentions but already, the following has happened
you also attempted to start drama according to the emboldened part of that quote and then attempted to avoid it by using an alternate discord account, which im going to guess since you were banned again, attempted to start drama on it as well (EDIT: was told you came back and immediately advertised your burning man thread). shouldn't be hard to hide an alt account if you just keep your mouth shut and use a different completely unrelated name/avatar.
if you want to discuss drama, there's this whole category for it in case you never knew. i find the petty stuff irritating and i like it away from this discord.

Who is being encouraged to spam a forum? 4chan? le reddit army? etc? Nobody is going to bomb a forum because they're encouraged to do so, and Blockland Drama is the only reason why the forum gets bombed in the first place.
big think

If people are leaving a discord because of how things are mishandled, you know something is wrong and you should look into reform.
17 people have joined and stayed in the past 7 days.

BLOCKLAND Speedrunning
We beat things really really fast.



Join the Discord!
Leaderboards

Speedrunning is just beating things as fast as possible, not really much to it. I set up a speedrun leaderboard for beating the Tutorial map years ago, but I never really took it any farther than that. I want to now, so I did that.

Right now we've got categories for the Tutorial both in and out-of-bounds for both v21+ and v20, and 5 individual level categories including the Ninja Jump Challenge, Cog's Click Challenge, and Dix Miggie 3 (semi WIP).

(i lost the topic to the SMF exploit oh no)
