I love the 3d feature of Google Maps. If the city is supported you get a 3d version of the builinds, instead of 2d.
BienieYou should see it in VR! O.O

SpringheelI have the Wander app which allows you to travel around the world in VR using Google street view. Can't get over how much I've enjoyed it.

freykFor example: open google maps and go to london. click on "satelite" (left down corner) then 3d right downcorner). Zoom in use mouse scroll and pan with ctrl-keyboard button.

Hey Springheel, if you see this check your PMs, appearently your inbox is full, been trying to send you a message and its not getting through.
PSA: Latest Linux distros like Ubuntu 18.10 contain an updated version of Mesa which significantly improves performance and compatibility with games and open drivers like Intel and AMD.

freykTried this with tdm?
Oct 04 2018 12:13 AM
kanoYep, it seems to run faster on my old laptop with Radeon 6700 graphics. But I don't have stats of the performance before the upgrade to compare it to. Also, games like Gzdoom used to suffer from graphical glitches on that hardware, and they're gone.

Every time my internet goes out for half an hour, I try and check my messages to see if the coast got nuked or something. Thankfully no nukes have fallen today, so there's that.
"WARNING: 0:3: '#extension' : 'ARB_explicit_uniform_location' is not supported"?? Intel, you suck.

BikerdudeI have never used WD el-cheapo & nasty nas boxes for various reasons, so this dosen't surprise.
Sep 20 2018 02:05 PM
kanoSworn off WD myself. Why? They started building the SATA-to USB bridge into the hard drive itself, so if it fails, you're screwed. Sometimes those bridges do fail, not the actual hard drive. And with a proper one, you can just rip the drive out and hook it straight to SATA. But they really want people to use their $3000 data extraction service.

Returned from business trip a week ago, and bumped into the contest preparation. The next window of freedom is expected in the first days of October. Sorry TDM =(
RPGistaA contest, you say? Well, good luck man, have fun!

JudithYup. AKA IronEagle, HawkFlyAway, etc.

TarhielVery nice! I guess it will not be such a revolution as a NewDark, it will certainly allow for merging all those cut level into one big one (Streets, Cradle...). Definitely something to look for :)
Oct 03 2018 10:31 PM
SkarutsThis is cool. When someone manages to merge all the city maps, that's probably when I'll get back to playing some good ol' TDS.

Woken up at 12:30 AM by the sound of a jack hammer outside. Who needs to sleep anyway?
Bikerdudeif you live in a residentials area, then this would be illeagal.

OrbWeaverI suppose it might be allowed in certain emergencies, such as if some houses have lost power and water and they need to dig a hole to fix the problem.
Sep 14 2018 07:11 AM
kanoYeah I called the cops and they said not only that someone else was on the line complaining about it, but it was a genuine emergency with the gas lines, so there was nothing they could do about it.

graymanNone. Some leaves and pine straw on the ground.

My son Nolan was born on Friday 10:51 PM. Everyone healthy and half and tired. I won't be around for the next few weeks.
SothaCongrats! Busy busy busy...

Petike the TafferCongratulations. :-) I wish your son the best of health and a long life, and the same to his dear parents. 8-)

Feels like a month since I've touched DR, real life is so busy... If you're waiting on my next FM, I feel you, sometimes it feels I'm waiting on myself too...
SiyahParsomenWell, only fan mission that I'm waiting is yours. It's a bit sad to hear you haven't touch DR for months, but real life is the top priority always. I can wait for next summer to see how you managed that stunning environment lighting.
Sep 06 2018 07:43 AM
BienieI feel the same way sometimes! Sometimes I hit a snag, and it can stops my will to map for weeks.
Sep 08 2018 02:50 PM
DragoferYes, unfortunately TDM mapping isn't really something you can do continuously. But once you do get back again it'll be with fresh vigour and creativity.

Back to fixing bugs for a little while. A whole day to find a tiny little missing 'else' statement. Gotta love it.
SeriousToniGlad somebody finally found it! :)

I put the ancient sticker on the new computer build, and the new sticker on the one with ancient parts inside, so that if a thief breaks in who knows about computers, he'll steal the wrong (old) one, instead of the good one. Ryzen is running in a 16 year old case with an Athlon XP sticker on it... lol
freykDumb thief: if its shiny and feels modern, he steals it. Smart thief: looks inside the case and steals it.
Aug 27 2018 01:17 PM
ObsttorteAnd if he has a magical back like in TDM, he will probably steal both. And any sylverware he can find ;)
Aug 28 2018 04:14 AM
stumpythey'll spend 2 to 4 minutes taking what they can sell then leave. If its too big or heavy they wont take it.
