Games / Wurm Online - Sandbox Survival MMO
« on: December 06, 2013, 02:36:31 AM »

Official Site
Wiki
- some parts are outdated, still extremely useful.

Wurm Online is a totally unique, highly accessible online wilderness MMORPG that will drag you in, shake you up and down, bite you, annoy you, drive you completely mad and leave you wondering why you didnít find it a million years ago!
Both PvP and PvE server clusters are available. On the Freedom PvE cluster, you can enjoy a peaceful life being eaten by bears in the woods. One of those servers offers opportunities to get a taste for fighting with other players, though. The Epic PvP cluster offers a lot of opportunities to fight and compete with other players. It also has bears, so watch out! You can transfer your account between the clusters at any time, skills and items do not transfer but are kept intact.
Playing is easy. Just register for free and then download the Java client and packages by clicking on the Play! button on the site. Oh, you need Java, but there is a handy link for Java up to the right. Java is, of course, platform-independent, which means you can play Wurm on Linux, Mac, and even Windows!
Creating an account is free and you can play free of charge for an unlimited amount of time* with restricted abilities. If you want to buy premium membership to unlock high skill levels, just go to the shop and buy premium for 8Ä per month any time you like. When premium time runs out, your skills get limited until you purchase premium again. It really is that simple.

Ok, I want to play.

Great! Sign up for an account on the official site and then click the "play now" button to start downloading the client. While it's downloading, consider browsing the wiki a little - it's going to be your best friend. The tutorial can be a bit tedious, but it's a good introduction to the game..

When you're at the end of the tutorial, you'll get a message about receiving your survival gear and you'll be able to go through a portal (going through a portal = choosing a server). If you choose the wrong server, you'll never be able to play with anyone from BL and will probably get bored of playing alone and quit. When you get to the portal area, look for soPhysician Prescribed Desoxyning called "Epic Portal". Walk up to it, right click, and select "Use". Choose the Mol-Rehan Home server, Desertion. If you don't choose Desertion you won't be able to play with us.

Once you're on Desertion, contact me or Mikoyan via forum PM or Steam.

Games / DayZ Hardcore Server
« on: April 06, 2013, 07:52:49 PM »

I played DayZ for a few months when it first came out last year. I eventually stopped playing for several reasons: an abundance of hackers, persistent bugs, rampant and needless murder, and a distinct lack of challenge.

I've recently started playing on a server that fixes all these problems. It's a private hive that forces the player to focus on survival in a way most servers don't. Food is rare and guns are rarer. There aren't loads of vehicles, and due to decreased loot spawns, fixing them might not be a walk in the park. Here is the server's thread on the DayZ forums.

Unfortunately, the server currently has an impressively tiny playerbase. I think all us blocklanders should do what we do best and flood it with a mess of rage, butthurt, and awesome. Anyone interested? Feel free to add me on steam (link in my profile), or just hop on the server. Side chat is temporarily enabled while the community grows.

(I'm currently going by the name Jack Krenshaw ingame)

Creativity / Logo Contest - Cash Prize (Update!)
« on: February 25, 2012, 09:03:23 PM »
Me and a friend are starting a yard care business, and we need a logo. We have an idea but neither of us are very good graphic designers. Below is a very rough idea of what we want. Our idea is to have half sky and half soil with one blade of grass sticking out and multiple roots going into the ground.  



If you have any other ideas they're welcome. No text in the logo please though, we already have a good name chosen out and it's not going to be included in the logo.

The deadline is next wednesday, February 29th - the sooner the better, but don't rush it.
The prize will be $15 awarded to the one we choose.

UPDATE 2/26:
Okay time for a little update I guess. I'll be changing the rules just a bit.

You can now come up with your own designs. As long as they relate enough to our "theme" so to speak we'll consider them. You can also include the name of our business, which is GrassRoots Yard Care. We won't be choosing any "logos" that are just text with some effects applied, I can do that myself. We'll be printing these in full color, never black and white. The colors we'll be using on our flyers/business cards/signs/whatever else will be only green and white, with black text - no complicated backgrounds or anything, so the logo CAN have a background but Jay is right that it might be nice without one.

Also, vector graphics are preferred so we can print these in any size we want. If you're not able to do that, make it very high resolution. 1000x1000, 1500x1500, basically just as big as you can so we're never limited by resolution.

The prize should be awarded fairly soon after the deadline, but you might have to wait a few days. It'll come, though.

Off Topic / Help Fred with his calculus homework pls.
« on: January 09, 2012, 09:29:38 PM »
I finished my whole assignment except one problem. Here it is:

The Monticello High School swimming pool is an inverted cone with base height 20 meters and radius 5 meters. It is being filled by Mr. Lundin with a hose which pumps in water at the rate of 3 cubic meters per minute.

(a) When the water level is 2 meters, how fast is the water level rising?
(b) How fast is the radius changing at this moment?

So, we know:
h = 2
r = 1/2
dv/dt = 3

Also, the formula for volume of a cone is V=(1/3)(pi)(r^2)(h)

We need to find out:
(a) dh/dt
(b) dr/dt

Common Complaints

I built this cool house, but it decayed really quickly. - On the old Golden Valley free server, decay was sped up. On the server we're on now it's much slower, plus once we get a deed to our land it'll slow down even more.
The "animations" are bad. - Yes, they are. New ones are in development, rumored to be released this month -  but who knows.
Everything takes a reealllyy long time. - If you're by yourself, yes, but once you get a little group of people things are much quicker. And once you're skills start climbing up and you get better tools, it's even faster.



Ok, I want to play.

Great! Sign up for an account on the official site and then click the "play now" button to start downloading the client. While it's downloading, consider browsing the wiki a little - it's going to be your best friend. The tutorial can be a bit tedious, but it's a good introduction to the game. You'll run into a few of Wurm's biggest problems; for example, lack of real animations. But fear not! Animations are in development, and rumored for a release this month (we'll see, eheh).

When you're at the end of the tutorial, you'll get a message about receiving your survival gear and you'll be able to go through a portal (going through a portal = choosing a server). If you choose the wrong server, you'll never be able to play with anyone from BL and will probably get bored of playing alone and quit. When you get to the portal area, look for soPhysician Prescribed Desoxyning called "Epic Portal". Walk up to it, right click, and select "Use". Choose the Mol-Rehan Home server, Desertion. If you don't choose Desertion you won't be able to play with us.

Once you're on Desertion, contact me for directions to our village. Easiest way would be Steam or a PM here. A link to my steam profile is in my profile here.

Currently we have a mine with iron, another with lead, and a cliff that has silver somewhere inside it. That's pretty damn good. We're located next to a large body of water connected to the ocean, so we have ample opportunity to go sailing if we ever build some nice boats. All vital resources are fairly close to us.

I used a program a player made called WPlanner to make this plan for the village, then touched it up in paint :3
We might make a few changes, but this is the general idea. The center building is the.. village center, bottom 2x3 building is a storage building, the long building on the left is beds and personal storage, building on the right is a workshop.

We've finished the 2x3 storage building plus a 1x1 building for a gatehouse. We're making fast progress.

I'll update this section more later, I'll get pics and maps etc.

...is a grammatically correct sentence.

Yeah yeah I'm sure I'm soo late bla bla bla, deal w/ it i'm sure many people haven't seen this.
For lazy people: Bison from Buffalo, New York, who are intimidated by other bison in their community, also happen to intimidate other bison in their community.
