Forum Games / you are a police officer
« on: July 13, 2017, 09:52:07 PM »
you are jim torrey, a 32 year old police officer inside a police car parked outside of a bagel shop in the middle of a town.

its a friday morning and you cant wait for your shift to be over so you can go home and sleep for the entire weekend. its been a long and boring week.

next to you in the drivers seat is your shift buddy tom. you dont really know him that well but you both know your shift is pretty boring and not much happens, so he's taking a nap right now

some people are walking on the sidewalks outside, you can see some windowshopping. lucky them to be able to take a day off on a day as nice as this.

what do you do? you can do anything you want, though right now you're eating a bagel.

Add-Ons / Painting Bricks
« on: May 06, 2017, 12:54:45 AM »
Painting Bricks
Version 1.1

full list of painting names and authors, starting from the left going clockwise:
Grand Jazz, by Conan
Flower, by Swollow
American Gothic, by Element
Paradise City, by Element
Stargate, by Pah1023
Jacket, by Conan
mEow, by Zeustal (Postal)
The Great Wave of Kanagawa, by Element
gr8 parrot, by Pah1023
Mona Lisa, by Element
Drydess, by Conan

A set of bricks that let you create high-detail paintings! Comes in 2 sets: 2 pixels per stud (left and right painting pixels), and 8 pixels per stud (paint pixel 8x1 to 8x8) as well as an easel brick to put your paintings on.
Due to how overlapping bricks works, the area in front of the painting has to be as wide as the resolution. You will also need a floating brick mod/new duplicator to force plant some bricks.

Goes extremely well with Emil's Smallbricks and Vertical Print Plate Pack - the painting pixels align with the 0.25 thickness smallbricks (which can be used to optimize paintings since they can be very brick heavy), while the vertical plates serve as excellent frames.



A resource for modders to draw debugging lines for raycasts and stuff. Most of you can probably make this on your own, but this is also for reference for those who want to figure out how to create and rotate static shapes for things like tracers.

Note that the way that the shapes are rotated all involve no rotation around the x and y axis at the same time. If you don't understand what I mean, don't worry - it's only relevant if you want to do something like a rotating cylinder around the cylinder's axis. To change this behavior you will need to screw with the %xyz and %u lines in StaticShape::drawLine.

Rotation and positioning code adapted from Port's new brick tool. Ty port, ur such a cutie <3

Comes with a 0.2 scaled box so you can use this support script right out of the box. If you want to make your own tracer shapes with the same scale as the ones used in the image above, you should scale the shape to be 1/20 of the 0.2 scale box - just import the dts into blender and scale it down to 0.05 of its base size, then drawline them using %diameter = 1. If you just want to draw lines with the same size as the ones above, use a %diameter/%scale setting of 0.05;

Add-Ons / Inspect Weapon - CS:GO anyone?
« on: April 24, 2017, 09:00:50 PM »
Inspect Weapon
Version 1.0

Hold right click for 2 seconds to inspect a weapon. Not guaranteed to work with every weapon, for somewhat obvious reasons. Also will look weird on any weapon that relies on eyeoffset to lock the weapon position in first person view

Due to some blockland problems I was forced to make both hands visible when inspecting, or otherwise only have the left hand visible when inspecting dualies. To compensate, I built in a first-person always-visible hand support, which you can enable by setting $FirstPersonHands::Enabled to true once the server is running. Note that this will /not/ work with most raycast weapons due to the majority of them having their raycasts not fire from the eye, but rather the gun.


Games / Alien Swarm: Reactive Drop
« on: April 21, 2017, 06:02:40 PM »

The long awaited update? dlc? sequel? enhancement? to alien swarm, free to play on Steam. Pretty intense and pretty damn fun for such a simple concept, esp if you can get a good 8 man team together.

Some notable features:
  • minimap you can draw on, to direct teammates and/or draw richards
  • position tracking throughout the entire map so you can see who forgeted up and fell behind and died when and where
  • friendly fire always on; court martial or kick the worst player on the team post-game
  • 4 classes, 2 of each max. unlockable weapons and class specific stuff make it really teamwork focused.

seriously, go get it now and play. its free. there's no reason not to give it a try,

Add-Ons / Vending Machine Bricks
« on: April 11, 2017, 06:05:53 AM »
Vending Machine Bricks
Version 1.0

Made on request by Zeustal (Postal on forums). A set of modular bricks to make vending machines with!
Best used alongside Emil's Smallbricks pack
First official GURO gdf clan addon (clan is in process of renaming)

Version 1.1 will have proper mirroring and more accurate collisions.


how many of you are seriously interested in learning how to make mods, enough to put in the time to learn whatever necessary (probably 3 hours a week minimum)? just making this topic to poll the forums if there is any real interest

can't you make a google classroom now without an edu account, if so you should do something like that

i didnt even know that existed, this is an excellent idea. thanks for the suggestion, i've set up a classroom - if you want to join, the class code is fpk1yt.

so a more fleshed out list of topics
  • coding
    • basics n syntax n oop (2-4 lessons)
    • packages
    • dump and console controls (setlogmode, trace)
    • file i/o and export
    • script/sim objects/groups/sets and "typing" and defining functions for types
    • world objects creation (projectiles, players, vehicles, bricks, staticshapes, etc) (probably 2 lessons)
    • torque quirks (switch, while > for, | operator, * operator, % bugs; probably more)
    • basic vector math/code snippets for rotations and such
  • modeling
    • blender basics aka mesh manipulation and objects (assume 2.7# unless specifically stated 2.49b)
    • materials and uv mapping
    • empties and animation (2 lessons maybe)
    • dts exporting + dts layers + scaling for bl
    • blb creation/exporting/scaling and dts collisions
    • item/image exporting
    • model and datablock quirks (conflicting model names, etc)
    • playertypes animations (including vertex anims) and workflow (2.49b) (probably a set of 3 or 4 lessons including code)
  • practical code
    • state system
    • raycasts, box searches
    • reading bls files, blb files
    • player interface controls (manipulating inventory/brick inv/message/centerprint/bottomprint)
    • aiplayer functions and default bots functions??
    • addon examples/creation??

note that i left out guis and vehicle exporting. im not entirely sure how to do either of them, and would greatly appreciate help by people who know the ins and outs of them.

post topic suggestions that i missed or whatever

Gallery / Freighter/Oil Tanker DM Map
« on: March 15, 2017, 03:08:20 PM »

Interior shots. Click to enlarge (warning: big)

For Port's Hotline Miami server. Uses defaults + Demian's filler bricks + Emil's colorset.

Save can be downloaded here:

Tanker main body has plenty of space if you're interested in expanding the build for whatever your needs are. The bridge is also somewhat set up - you'll have to cut in your own stairs to the roof and set up the walls for the bridge, but there's space for it. The majority of the props are also easily removable, which is a bonus.
I highly advise using the New Duplicator's cut, fillbricks, and supercut features if you are looking to edit this build.

This is my first real drama on the forums. I don't like to bring up stuff on anyone but the amount of stupidity that has happened in the last 10 minutes, and historically, is astounding.

Zeustal is fine person, pretty chill in general, but he tends to make terrible or extremely questionable decisions/joke bans at times. Despite telling him to lay off he still occasionally does it with extremely bad timing (eg joke banning someone pissed at him) and I had to come in and fix things when it happens.

The thing that made me write this drama though is that on my server, Pah installed a discord bot that records server chat and sends it to my discord server, under the #server-chat tag. While Zeustal and I were chilling in my server, he asks if I want to "remake server chat" - being the goofster who likes to screw with ingame code, I said sure, and overwrite the serverCmdMessageSent function.

Apparently he wanted to remove the chat history about us talking about futa n stuff. Not sure why he didn't think of just deleting those posts...

Zeustal, however, was actually talking about the discord channel that records the chat on my server (which is titled #server-chat). He then goes and deletes the channel, without confirming that I understand he means the discord channel, with all of the chatlogs and images and links and information posted into it over the past month.
When asked "why would i /ever/ want to delete server chat", he had no response.

Needless to say I revoked his discord admin privileges. He's not a terrible guy, but he makes /really/ questionable decisions without thinking them through, especially when drunk. I strongly caution against giving him admin privileges when you have something serious going on.

appears to be an issue with floats??

edit: yes. apparently i just never encountered this before which is odd given how ive been coding for the past few years.


anyone have any ideas why this engine has such broken global vars apparently?
