Gauntlets of Recursion (+3)

Times, trials, and turbulence.

Closer and closer.

New Header?

As part of my foray into web design (slowly!), I supposed that making website graphics is something that I would also need to gain at least a basic skill in. So, I used a Skirmish Online screenshot as a base to make a nifty little header for the journal. I’m quite happy with it, but then again, I’m a little biased. I’m open to criticisms and suggestions, of course.

Article Progress

The article — if you didn’t read prior entries, I’m working on an article on the ‘Metaballs’ effect — is coming along quite well now that I’m over the initial hurdle. Getting started is certainly the hardest part, but once the ball is rolling it isn’t so bad. In particular, it was difficult to get writing because of my subconscious fear of accidentally writing inaccurate content, but I’m now pretty confident that what I’m writing is accurate. If I’ve made an oopsie here or there — which I’m sure is only natural — someone will surely correct me.

The other problem was the way “a simple article on how to create the ‘metaballs’ effect” quickly became “discussing the theory and ideas behind metaballs and isosurfaces, examining their implementation, optimizations, and current/possible uses in the field of game development”. Whoops. At the very least, it should be a much more interesting read now!

Project Skirmish

Not really news, but I wanted to state for good measure that my interest and motivation regarding Project Skirmish has not waned. I’m really eager to kick up development again, but all of this work with co-op interviews, assignments, article writing and website development is sucking up all of my time. Once things quiet down a little I’ll be cranking out screenshots and videos once again. Until then, hopefully you find my other endeavors interesting as well. πŸ™‚

    I like the colours of the background, the text could have a different one, but I think it looks good aswell πŸ™‚

    @Samsonite: What colour(s) do you suggest for the foreground text? The blue-ish colour seems to be a little notorious for not having much in terms of colours that overlay well on it.

    I like the new logo, but what happened to your gauntlets of recursion? They aren’t as powerful as they once were; did your gauntlets reach the terminating condition early?

    @David: Stack overflowed. 😦

    Looking at it now, it all looks well. Sorry for not responding earlier 😦
