      Yeah, no, I can't wrap my head around parts of it either. You get too far into irony and it becomes a game of chicken.

      At the end of the day it's the mayonnaise in your sandals that counts. Just picture that during your morning breakfast.

      I will carry this burden my entire life.

  7. I remember not being able to use specular/gloss maps, did that change? Things could look infinitely better with these maps!

      IIRC, the shader derives gloss-sharpness from the intensity of the specmap. So the higher the spec intensity is, the sharper the gloss. Try experimenting with high and low intensity single-color specmaps to see how it affects the material. That should give you an idea about how to author your actual specmaps.

    3. nbohr1more

      nbohr1more

      One thing that Arcturus found is that mirror render maps respect vertex color so one possible way to add additional modulation would be to vertex paint between a black specular texture and grey specular texture (etc).

      You could play all of them over again, many have seen updates and additions, and there are the campaign-inna-box missions coming out again.

      This kind of thing seems to vary with discipline and location. I did a UK philosophy PhD, and while I sort of recognise the scenarios in Piled Higher and Deeper, my stint was actually quite relaxed.

      Keep at it, Diego. You'll either succeed or fail, but to just give up is the only way to lose here. If you fail, you at least did your best, and may be able to resit part of it, giving up means you probably won't try again.

      Hahaha! That was awesome! Good old Steam Summer Sale!!

  12. I just purchased thief4 on piratebay (to test it, don't judge me) and found out my machine does not meet the minimum requirements. New computers are so expensive but I think it's time :(

      When you use software modified by god-knows-who, it can do very nasty things.

    3. Diego

      It's definitely a risk.

    4. lost_soul

      lost_soul

      New PCs aren't that expensive if you play it smart. A: Don't buy a Dell. B: replace your motherboard/CPU/RAM/graphics card.

      C. Replace your PSU if required, and have fun. (Don't buy a Dell because IIRC their parts are proprietary)

  13. 90% discount steam coupon on "rip trilogy", anyone wants it?

      It expires may 1st. I don't suppose we'll have a contest before that (one that ends before that actually)

      ah ok, just put it up for adoption then in the offtopic section etc.

    4. Diego

      Diego

      oh right, I made a topic for that a while ago.

  14. And nu Thief is on sale already! That was fast. Is 33% off good enough? I'll have to think about it :)

      It's -50% on PS3.

      I had 45 hours in my full playthrough with all side missions. That's more than double the play time I got out of Bioshock Infinite. Any sale is good if you're eager. :P

  15. Just found a particularly original "enlarge your penis" email in my spam box. "Enlarge with free trial: your love tool is set to thrill"

      This reminds me of RJFerret's signature.

       

      The lesson is that the mapper should always be careful with the "froabable" spawnarg.

  16. I'm confused about this game, it shows two different prices http://store.steampowered.com/app/257770

    1. Sotha

      Sotha

      Confusing, yes. I suppose you choose the cheaper one. ;)

      BTW: wow that game has poor animations. They look like they were made by me!

    2. Diego

      Diego

      But what if after they fix it there's an even cheaper option?

    3. Diego

      Diego

      They corrected it. The second comes with an extra copy :) Quite useless though, it's exactly twice the price.

  17. I wonder if TDM runs on this laptop. I just assumed it doesn't and didn't even try.

      If the winter could be killed...i would do it :-) I hate the cold. How`s about moving to europe, Diego. After one or two winter-seasons here u `ll get homesick like hell.

      I would accept that challenge if the opportunity appeared :)

      Why preordering a Hyundai, when I got a Porsche? As long as I play TDM, there`s no need for me buying Thi4f. More depth, more original T1/2 feeling, more of everything :-)

    3. vvGarrettvv

      vvGarrettvv

      and..yeah..don`t preorder at all

      2013 was a rollercoaster ride for me as well. Many ups and downs. I still consider it one of my best years however. So much has happened.

      Their field is closer to applications and money streams, thus the pay is better. Same thing for a scientists operating in fundamental and applied research.

      I sometimes think the same as the OP, but I think I would get burned out sooner or later. Some things are better off staying as your hobbies...

      It's exactly what I think. Because it's not the task itself that gets tiresome, it's everything else! I love studying physics...

      Not yet. 48%. I'll post it on the forum thread when it's done :D

      LOL after a million years of uploading, it gave me a message that it found copyrighted music in it. So it has replaced it with "Dr. Akula-Disembodied Dead". That's a very promising dark mod playthrough. I'm trying to dispute it, what argument do I use?

    4. ungoliant

      "...because fuck yourselves" is the only argument that even makes sense.

  23. Anyone wants a 75% discount Steam coupon on Prime World Defenders? :P

      I'm not a tower defense fan, but it looks like a good game. My coupon expires next week.

    1. nbohr1more

      nbohr1more

      Aw man. Now I wanna see. They occasionally keep amusing spam threads over at doom3world. Yeah, that's probably why they occasionally get flooded with spam and why they've got GB of spam in the defunct modwiki site. Playin with fire. Oh well.
