We can use the current one. I like the big trees and slightly smarter dorfs.

@Silentfall:

I'm thinking we should keep a tally of people whose first post is in this thread :p

Are you volunteering to go back through nearly 500 pages looking for them? If so, then... I have no comments on the amount of time you have. None. At all.

Woot! You guys did it again! Wishes come true sometimes, I guess. That's nice, I like that.

As to programming, I've done some programming work for Dwarf Fortress. I've also done a lot of game programming, but nothing on a professional level. 3D is a lot harder to manage than 2D, especially when you're working by yourself. I'm also severely hampered by the fact that I've never found a good IDE for a game-oriented single programmer. so... don't judge me too harshly. For me, programming is more of a hobby, I guess...

I figured there wasn't any harm in posting a number of pictures of old stuff I've done (all over a year old). Maybe harm to my image, I suppose, but enh. Therefore, the following spoiler is image-heavy and menaces with spikes of shameful shameless self-advertisement.
Actually, this is another one of those things I may end up quickly editing and taking down. I don't feel it's right to put these here, but you wanted to see Mr Frog's programs, so I figured it wouldn't be too bad to do an unrightable wrong and scare you all half to death with my awfulness. Which I may, of course, remove.


Finally, I like "Corporate Conquest"... Nice name, Silent. Also, welcome to the madness.

And welcome back, Hanslanda! Though you didn't say long, it was awesome to see you here again! Hopefully this won't be the last time you pop in...

Mr Frog, I'm going to start answering those PMs. I have 15-30 minutes left before I get kicked off, so I may be able to answer some of them. sorry for the delay. It's been a busy week in RL for me. (I got attacked by an angry bull on Monday, for example, and spent most of the day dodging it to try to get it out of a pasture it wasn't supposed to be in. I can no longer say my life isn't exciting.)


Edit: while I'm thinking about it, you all know I can't draw worth carp. Mr Frog is far, far better than I am, (Splint even more so), and I'm looking forwards to seeing the picture.

reedit: changed my mind again, pics are back. may change my mind a second time.

Trippy? Aye, they are. I can't remember whether it was you or Mr Frog, but one of you called one of the pics "an epileptic's worst nightmare".

Back on for just a second. Wanted to post this. (Take two - the first time I somehow managed to post this in the wrong thread. No idea how.)

Hey, Reudh being a creepy bastard was helpful! That was actually a little surprising, but then these things were probably made by dwarves and for them "almost never" is probably more akin to "One, maybe two fatal accidents a year."

Okiedokie, here's my impression of Spearbreakers:


Does anyone have any recommendations for image hosts besides ImageShack? IS seems to like to quietly 404 random images without any notification, which is Not Cool. I tried img.ie, but the interface was butt-awful.

Ok, we can all laugh at the accuracy on 3. Because that probably described the majority of the fort's life perfectly.

@MrFrog, Flickr, or Google Images. Although Imageshack is the easiest, IMHO.

Mr Frog, that picture was amazing :3
Also, I use Photobucket to host my images, maybe you could try that?

Due to an epiphany I've had disregard anything I've written pertaining directly to the timewar that didn't take place in the fortress proper. i apologize for the many headaches and ruptured cranial blood vessels.

What I've been writing for the side plot contributes nothing and I realized I was writing to write and kill time for the thread. it's pointless to even keep it properly archived or considered canon.

It doesn't deserve to be. I need to throw myself onto the pointy bits of the spike-walk's pits in penance for forcing you guys to read the unmitigated crap.
