Minecraft Misadventure

Posted by Colette Llyan , in Computers, Gaming, Minecraft Dec 11 2012 · 339 views

[NO NO NO NO Ah Dang It Why Did I Even Do That!?]
 
So; today's been interesting. Played a ton of Minecraft on my new world to test out some modifications, and got about 15 diamonds today alone(Everywhere I looked seemed to have them; and no, that wasn't part of the mods, that was genuine. =P). So, after doing that and therefore having 19 total, not dying at all in that world, and getting to about level 44-ish, in terms of EXP; I decided to lava mold myself a Nether Gate.
 
All went well; I entered, and immediately heard a ghast and built a base out of the Cobblestone I had brought for bridges. Went outside, tried and failed to play Dead Man's Bluff(Or whatever the name's called) with the ghast ala Zelda, repaired some of the damage to my platform, and eventually decided to enclose my portal. Ran outta cobblestone. Went back to my base in normal world. Grabbed more cobblestone. Ran back into my gate. Heard a ghast. Proceeded to run forward through the portal instead of backwards, running right off the platform into what apparently was lava, but seemed to be an actual platform to me. 0_o So, yeah, first death of the game gets credited to the ghast chasing me, with the assist going to my utter lack of direction. =P
 
So; I respawned, not realizing everything I had had at the time, but shrugging it off since I left the important stuff at home. =P Grabbed more cobble, and dodged the ghasts, as I promptly sealed THAT side off. Because that was just a stupid death. xD So, I then decide that I've already died once, and I might as well keep trying, so I go out into the open, and finally see the ghast that was shooting me(Or, rather, one of them). The problem is that I have to have my settings on tiny so to not crash the game, so I can barely see even the silhouette. So, I see it, track it, and realize how the reflection works. "ACHIEVEMENT GET!" That did the trick. =P
 
After that, I'm feeling even braver, so I go out to get what fell. I ignore the drop, since there was Netherrack, and it wasn't that far. I then proceed to make a bridge out there. So far so good, no ghast's tears, that sorta fun stuff. I explore a bit; but don't see any fortresses, unfortunately. So I gather some Soul Sand, and start to head back. Lo and behold, another ghast. Shooting at me. So, I decide to be tricky; I walk backwards. Bad move, there was fire. And I was starting to get hungry. And the fire was slowly killing me. Somehow I managed to eat and not die. =P So, I try to finish my bridge, since I had jumped when things shot at me earlier. =P
 
Needless to say, that was intriguing, as I was both reflecting the blasts I could get(Killed one of them during that stand, though two more replaced it. =P), and trying to both finish the bridge, and reinforce it with railings so it didn't blast me into lava. Everything surprisingly went well, made a platform at the bottom, and got a two brick high railing on either side of my three-wide bridge(Which turned it into one wide, but I didn't care, as that was the ORIGINAL size, as I was making my way over there. =P). Except, I ran outta cobble halfway through. That was not fun, but somehow I managed to dash(Not literally, of course, thankfully due in part to the third modification I was testing, the first two being Optifine and the Minimap) across to safety, without anything shooting at me. I even scaled the cliff, and got back through the portal, without anything attempting to kill me. I'm a little worried about that, I may wait before going back through next. =P
 
So, earlier in this, I mentioned about the items I lost? Yeah, I remembered my inventory(Or at least the majority of it) after.
 
1-3 Iron Picks(I forget how many)
1-3 Iron Shovels(Same)
Roughly 2 Iron Swords
1 Bow
50-something arrows
Tons of torches
Lots of sticks
Probably a full stack of coal(Not that that mattered, I had like 10 of those. =P)
7 buckets(6 full of milk and one of water)
Full set of Iron Armour, nearly broken
 
I think that's it, since I dashed off the platform before even TRYING to get Netherrack from destroyed things. xD Kinda painful, but I have like 4 full stacks of iron. =P
 
So yeah, that's the summary of my misadventure in the Nether. =P I don't like the layout of it for me. ._.; Too much stuff to kill me. xD I'm just glad I didn't anger any Pigmen, unlike on one multiplayer server I was on a couple months back. =P

Libraries And Other Rental Services

Posted by Colette Llyan , in Computers, Gaming, General Life, Random Dec 03 2012 · 125 views

[Whee, Scratches]
 
This is to anyone who rents games from libraries and other rental services. Please do yourself, and everyone else who rents the game after you a favour, and stop using the disks as frisbees! >_< I'm starting to get tired of getting games or music, and having to hope that it works, instead of, you know, not every getting to the logo screens for the company that produced the game. -_-
 
I could be playing Persona 4 right now, but instead, I can't even get past the 'PlayStation 2' logo screen, because it keeps just displaying a black screen after that. And since the movie I rented worked all the way through, and I can load up Mega Man X7, I know it's not the system, even if it was doing similar stuff before I even got to put the disk in. But even then, unplugging it helped there, and the main menu screen for the PS2 wouldn't even appear. Here, it loads everything, recognizes the disk, and even gets past the PS2 logo after checking the disk, but yet, it won't go any FURTHER than that. And of course, I checked the disk first... It's pretty badly scratched.
 
Basically, the entire surface has scratches that alternate rows, but go around in a circle eventually. They don't seem that deep, but when you have almost the entire surface covered because of those scratches, and the various other scratches that inevitably appear in these types of situations, it's pretty easy to know why the game won't load. Which brings up an interesting question: How did the last person who had the disk even manage to play it!? 0_o
 
Basically, take better care of your games, movies, and CDs(Even if it's not 'yours' full-time), because the next people to get it may become rather annoyed at you if the thing's unplayable. -_-'

New Blog Layout

Updates
[What, Something New?]

What's this, Blade's changing stuff? And updating more than once a day? This must be some kind of miracle. =P

So, yeah, finally stopped being lazy, and updated the blog's layout a bit, finally splitting the over-crowded bio content block into three different blocks, and also bringing back the approval links. Now I just have to track down the different approvals I've gotten that I haven't put into my content blocks yet. =(

The Stats block is an oddity, not sure what else should go in there. =/

[I'm Drowning, Droooooowning!!]

I have waaaaaay too many categories. ._.' I have even more now, since I've been going back to update my old entries with categories, since the update turned the old categories to tags. =P

It is interesting, however, to see all the old entries, and how things have changed in the past 4 years. Serves as a very interesting comparison. I still fail at keeping up to date with my blog, though, so some things never change. =P

That said, would anyone want to see some of the old concepts I used to have, like lyric entries? Basically, what would you guys like to see from me, aside from Blender stuff every so often? =P

Alternative Titles: I'm Back Baby!, Never Quoting Austin Powers Again For A While I Promise

-=Entry=-

So; I stopped blogging for a while. My bad. ^^' I haven't really been doing much of note lately... I also haven't really been doing THAT much with Blender; mostly just trying to get proportions right for stuff like humanoid creations. My past two attempts haven't really done that great. This is more of a test, and is a more chibi look than there should be; however, I rather like the look of it. So, without further ado, I introduce what I call 'Cube Man Zero', as per my save file's name. =P

Cube Man Zero, Fight, for everlasting peace!

Okay, okay, so it looks pretty barren. That's partially because it'll be a simply test for things like animation and such. Though, if it works well enough to be modified and updated in terms of design, then I'll probably use it over some of my more complex design tests that haven't gone very far. =P

So yeah, it's not SUPPOSED to be truly complex or anything, but I think it's good for a test model, and I wanted to show it off, since, well, I haven't exactly updated anything recently. =P

Alternative Titles: It's About Time.

-=Entry=-

Well, it's kinda been completed for a few months, but, well, I haven't had a chance to really get a screenshot. The textures aren't all on, and probably won't be for a while, but it works rather well as it is. =)

Link to rendered image.

I need to scale it down, if I ever use that for a test sword model, it outscales the rest of my test models by a Longshot. ... Which gives me an idea for a possible object to make next, if I continue a Zelda pattern. =P

If you guys want, of course, you can give me requests for stuff to make. =D Speaking of which, I need to work on that tea cup that Alex had suggested a while back; I got distracted by the Game Engine stuff. xD

Apologies

Alternative Titles: 882 Notifications What.

-=Entry=-

So, yeah, haven't been active here for the past week or so, yeah... I apologize heavily for anyone waiting on me. But as the alternative title says, I have an abundance of notifications, and a case of 'too many things to do, so little time to do them'. =/ Minecraft didn't help any. =P

Also, also! I have a wireless set of headphones! The manual for it is partially in engrish, though. =P Doesn't matter, though, as it was rather easy to figure out. =P I also have a wireless mouse for my laptop that works fairly well. It was five dollars, and the headphones were about 9-ish, so it was a fairly good deal. =D

Also, Metric is an awesome band.

Mann vs. Machine - Part 3

Mann, Vs., Machine, TF2 and 1 more...
Alternative Titles: The Stand, Mann Or Machine, Vengeance

-=Entry=-

Send your armies
There's no mann or machine
Who can stop me
And you'll soon see
I come for vengeance
For the first son of Light
And I'm ready, and I'm willing, and I'm prepared to fight-


Wait, you mean this isn't what I was meaning to post? It was a TF2 update? Oops.

So, yeah, aside from playing MvM today a lot, I've also been listening to The Protomen a lot. And, well, the two tie together very well. Especially vengeance. I just wish I could listen to that while playing MvM. Will have to figure out a way to do that effectively, without killing my machine(Pun not intended. D= ) with all the lag it'd get.

Speaking of lag, I was in a match earlier, and though everything was taken down alright, and nothing froze, I had horrible lag at around the point when 1 million bullets flew across the screen many times a second, thanks to my sentries, an opposing Heavy, many shooting scouts, my teammates(Which included a Heavy), and the like. ... Yeah, that was a lot to process. xD

Also got to course 4 in Portal 2 co-op, thanks to Xaeraz. =D

Portal 2 - Part 2

Alternative Titles: But You'll Have To Wait 6 Years For A Third Portal 2 Entry

-=Entry=-

So; just beat Portal 2. That was an awesome game. Also space. Oh, here come the space cops!

I kinda wonder, about the ending, though. I wonder if it really happened as it tries to make you believe. I hear the story's extended in the Co-op story mode; but, well, I don't exactly have anyone to go through that with, since no-one seems to want to go through that story mode again. =/ Guess that's what i get for getting the game like a year and a half after everyone else... Ah well...

Though, now I'm freed up for TF2, I guess. And creating new levels in Portal 2. Not Co-op, though, since I likely won't be able to test it. =P

Alternative Titles: You May Not See Me For A While - This Is A Natural Side Effect And Should Not Be Questioned.

-=Entry=-

So, yeah, I have Portal 2, and it's installed and working perfectly. So yeah, the cake is a lie, I'm still alive, and I'm going to play Portal 2 now. =P(I think this is the quickest I've ever played a new game that wasn't named Pokemon, Megaman or Zelda. =P)
