Drama / Vittoriohp, ID 76322 -- spamming and crashing servers
« on: December 22, 2017, 04:07:26 PM »
Last week a user by the name Vittoriohp joined my server and spammed emitters to try and crash it. I searched his ID (76322) and found he did something similar earlier this year.

Prior drama: https://forum.blockland.us/index.php?topic=309937.0

Today I was on based rlcbm's server and ran into him again.



If you are hosting a server with building enabled and this guy joins, keep an eye on him and be prepared to ban him. He crashes servers by spamming emitters and bricks. Vittoriohp, ID 76322.

Feedback
I'm going for a specific sound with each of these. If you see room for improvement please be specific and helpful, it doesn't benefit me if you are dismissive or vague. I'm also looking more for general tips regarding mixing and recording (e.g. how to treat some instruments, EQ pointers, etc) not instructions to change my genre.

Thank you for listening, hope you enjoy.

Long story short: I've been playing Double Dash for 10 years give or take, and since coming to college I've learned my peers also have an obsession with early 2000s Nintendo classics. So for the past year and a half I've been refining my strategy by beating my roommates relentlessly, challenging randoms off the street, harassing kids at arcades, and so forth.

This year a friend of mine joined a fraternity, and behold, during their rush week they host a Double Dash tournament. Finally! A chance for me to make a name for myself in the professional scene. I'm so hyped I e-mail the coordinator.


Then in the week leading up to the tourney I grind daily in Double Dash. I'm talking an all-cup tour on 150cc every day. I did two in a row just hours before the tournament itself. At this point I'm setting new records every time I play--a bizarre feat considering my memory card has all-time records accumulated after 10 years of aging students beating their former selves repeatedly. I make the money, man, I roll the nickels. The game is mine. I deal the cards.

I show up to the tournament last night and we play a warm-up. Four people compete in every game. I come in 4th the first game, but 1st the next three. I'm getting pretty loaded throughout this story by the way.

We draw up an officiated bracket. I'm in the first round and come in first place twice. At one point I recall taking off right at the start, establishing an aggressive lead on the other players, and stuffting on them with an unending diarrhea of bananas and green shells. The observers sitting in front of me slowly looked back in unmistakable awe. Since there are four players, the top two move on to the semi finals, the bottom two are booted--I am moving on.

15 minutes later it's the semi-finals. They give me some stuffe janky wireless controller that undoes my movements and lags at such uneven intervals I can't even compensate! I come in last one race, but pull first in the next by getting a lucky streak of blue shells, a rather bullstuff item which blows up the player in first with a like 0.05% chance of failure. I think I dodged a few last night lol not sure though. Next come the finals.

I pull a power play during character selection and pull both of the koopas as my characters, a killer move since we are using only the basic 16 characters and 8 karts--no unlocks. I've forced my opponents to choose slower characters than myself. I didn't even mean to by the way, I just chose really fast without looking and it turned out clutch. I win the finals obviously, it was kind of anti-climactic because by now I'm in the zone and skirt-skirting circles around these guys and their girlfriends. Though one fella was actually a great player so after I won he and I kept dominating in a much, much different game.

With practice you can be the best at any rule-based system. I have honed my skill to master a Japanese-produced digital racing system called Double Dash. The emotional high I'm on is indescribable.

General Discussion / Planet Londo: science fiction frontier
« on: August 12, 2016, 09:54:37 PM »
Planet Londo

Information & Server

Planet Londo attempts to fill a niche in Blockland not quite explored to its fullest: adventure. This map is set on an alien world with dangerous wildlife, spooky caves, and competing species. Players can complete quests to unlock weapons and areas, explore foreign biomes, and role play as they see fit. Many objects can be interacted with, all bots either have dialogue or a quest, and terrain is built by hand. Approximately 46,000 bricks.

Expect Planet Londo to be hosted a lot for the rest of the month and (hopefully) frequently even after school begins. Host will be Mega Bear. Players are encouraged to do whatever they want in this map, whether that means doing the quests and killing aliens or staying in the safety of the colony for role play.

Help

• Some quests are difficult. If you have to kill a boss, team up with friends.
• If you need to find an item, look in unexpected areas like the ceiling, narrow spaces, corners, even in enemy territory.
• When hosting Planet Londo, bot respawn times should be at least 60 seconds.
Dying loses all your progress on quests, and you have to talk to the bot to get a quest again. Talking to the quest-giver also resets your quest.
• You can recover items by talking to the bots who give them.

Off Topic / Cats standing up like people VERSION 2!!!
« on: May 07, 2014, 06:14:35 PM »
Original thread

Time for round two, fellow lovers of cats who stand upright. This is your reminder that the cats are evolving... preparing to take over the Earth. I'm not stuffting you. Planet of the Cats is upon us. I will now quote a relevant piece of dialogue.

"Cornelius, come here. Reach into my breast pocket." Dr. Zaius ordered. Cornelius strode over, although hesitant at first, and reached into the orangutan's pocket. He retrieved a small roll of paper. Zaius continued. "Read the twenty-ninth Scroll, sixth Verse."

Cornelius unraveled the scroll and began to recite the Lawgiver's edict. "Beware the beast man, for he is the devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he murders for sport, or lust, or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him: drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death."

When 3978 rolls around, I can see this scenario taking place, although with cats at the helm of civilization rather than apes. Chilling stuff.

I apologize for making things so dark. Without further adieu, let us begin. Please post any pictures of your own!

In conclusion, happy birthday Izzy-Jixo (hope u like ur new nickname) :iceCream:
