So Rage2 is a strange sort of game it has a lot of flaws and frustrations but the core gameplay the combat is very satisfying.
I saw this video on doing marching cubes in Unity, marching cubes is one of the algorithms that can be used to generate a 3d polygon surface from a voxel type density field it was developed for things like cat scans or mri it's also probably the algorithm things like Astroneer use to have deformable landscapes.
I think this is the second most expensive thing I've ever bought, the first being my flat.
So my golf was getting on a little bit still running fine but starting to need more than rudimentary swap all the fluids wipe it with a wet towel and call it good maintenance so I figured time to investigate replacing it. Since I was thinking of getting something newer and better I thought well why not try out some EV's and so I drove a few the Chevy bolt the Nissan and so on. I also tried the Tesla Model 3 which is a very fun car.
So Anthem came out to people that didn't subscribe to EA's "premier" origin sub service and well it's just dull.
First up the network and connection issues in the demo and beta are mostly cleared up now which is one thing I had a couple of disconnects or weird network problems but no more than you just get anyway it was mostly solid.
Well, this is a lot easier than bloody Lightwave (LW), that's for sure. I want to open source Icar, so I've decided to start rebuilding my models in Blender. Most of the original LW are old, tired and have dodgy renders, so I am happy to redo. It's so much easier to learn 2.8; even given that most of the tutorials use the lightyears-different 2.7 UI rather than the sexy 2.8.
F76 has been a bit of a disaster a broken game that is buggy as hell and just not all that fun.
Then there was the canvas bag saga where the super special 200 dollar edition which should have shipped with a canvas bag shipped with a nylon trash bag
Then they offered a couple of dollars in store currency in exchange (not enough to buy a virtual bag)
Then they offered to fix that but leaked all the people personal data
2018 was largely wasted. Yeah, I did some stuff (Cloudship, got most of my teeth sorted) but 2019 is going to be the year of doing stuff. The next six months is going to be hard because Kate is starting doing therapy on real people and it's going to be the hardest part of her career. To help, the family has to adjust around her a bit more and that usually means me picking up the slack. That's cool, we've known it's coming since Kate started. That means that I need to be better organised and do the thinking so that when I do get free time, I can just get on with it.
