  2. @scribus Aww, that doesn't sound like any fun at all. Sorry to hear that, I hope that gets better for you. I'm pretty alright, started uni this fall and am doing 3D graphics for game development which is pretty cool. Just started our first course in Maya and while I'm not exactly friends with the program yet, it's pretty fun.

  3. @nerthos Way I see it is if I have to have a boring job for like 5 years after I graduate and then get to do things I actually enjoy (I know game development isn't all sunshine and rainbows, but still), it sounds worth it to me.

  4. @nerthos They often say you need to have 2 out of 3 qualities. 1. Be professional (get stuff done before deadlines. 2. Be fun and easy to work with. 3. Be really bloody skilled in whatever it is you'll be doing. Pick two of those and you'll be fine.

  5. @nerthos Cancer saves the day yet again.

  6. @nerthos Not sure if I should be able to see some posts that I don't, but architectural stuff could work too. CAD is what got me into 3D modeling to begin with, though I quickly realized I wanted to do something more creative than putting holes for screws and stuff in machine parts. Also wanted to make games because games are pretty great. But yeah, once I'm done with uni I'll take what I can get. If that's not making games, fine, I'll just practice until I get good enough.

  7. @nerthos And a quick gofundme because our best programmer is stuck in Tibet with no internet and we need a few thousand bucks to get him back here so we can get started o- I mean finish the game.

  8. @nerthos Yeah, best case scenario I have an internship before I even finish uni. Doubt that'll happen and if it doesn't, I'll find something else to do while I practice more. Just need a nice portfolio and to be able to work in a team and I'm golden. I think I have the latter down mostly kind of maybe.

  9. @nerthos Duh. Just gotta save up some money to make a fancy trailer and go find people on reddit to help greenlight it on Steam.

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 20:36:41 UTC from web in context
  10. @nerthos Yup. Went to the Sweden Game Conference a month or so ago which was nice and hopefully I'll be able to contact someone there for some sort of internship in a year or two. If all else fails, my 3D buddies and I will just have to befriend some programmers and make early access crafting survival games with a microtransaction store. Gonna be beautiful.

  11. @nerthos One can dare dream. Aiming for doing 3d modeling but we'll see how well that goes.

  12. @tiffany This is new

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 20:25:11 UTC from web in context
  13. @tiffany Am I nothing but a nationality to you

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 20:17:40 UTC from web in context
  14. @nerthos It's basically the industry standard for game development. Maya for 3D and Photoshop for 2D. So that's pretty gross. But it works, I suppose.

  15. @tiffany To be fair I don't think it's ever been particularly secret

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 20:16:13 UTC from web in context
  16. @nerthos Pretty good! Just trying to figure out how to animate things along motion paths in Maya because I have no idea how Maya works. How about yourself?

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 20:13:12 UTC from web in context
  17. @tiffany Things suddenly make a whole lot of sense.

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 20:12:41 UTC from web in context
  18. @tiffany Why do you hate me

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 20:07:05 UTC from web in context
  19. @nerthos I do sorta remember that now. Wow, can't believe it's only been three hours, feels more like three years, at least.

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 20:06:29 UTC from web in context
  20. @tiffany Very true

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 19:53:24 UTC from web in context
  21. @tiffany I really would prefer not to

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 19:40:29 UTC from web in context
  22. @tiffany Do I have to?

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 19:36:26 UTC from web in context
  23. @tiffany You're not helping your cause

  25. @scribus Hello! How's it going?

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 19:26:22 UTC from web in context
  26. @tiffany That was the intention, friend

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 19:10:54 UTC from web in context
  27. @tiffany I would never consider a space with you a safe space, buddy

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 18:56:53 UTC from web in context
  28. @tiffany Don't make this political

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 18:53:56 UTC from web in context
  29. @tiffany That makes no sense

    Monday, 12-Dec-16 18:49:16 UTC from web in context
  30. @tiffany Why do you always do this
