Idea for a political game Anonymous 02/20/2020 (Thu) 05:53:20 ID:7afcb4 No. 810 [Reply] [Last]
it's a civilization game where you take charge of a small group of people at the beginning of time and try to raise it to a great civilization. the difference here is that you choose specific policies for you civilization, and the results of any set of policies are based upon how exactly how those sets of policies worked in the past. eventually, the player community will determine which policies are the best to use. everything is designed to be a 1:1 depiction of reality, as close as possible, even the way you take control of you initial population is also true to the way the first human societies were formed. there is also the distribution of genes among your people and the lifeforms around you, all of which are affected by your decisions as well, along with the environment, and each individual's genes determines their traits just as they would in real life. Genetic data is largely hidden from you until you have the tech to see it, and actually ask for that information to be determined for you. speaking of which, you can ask those under you to gather information, you also get updates on the visible affects of your policies on the people, though some of the less visible stuff must be actively looked into. you cannot directly choose the advancement of technology or culture like you do in sid mier's, nor do you directly instruct people to build structures (if you want a wall, you choose policies concerning border security, and a wall follows from that), people who are not politicians are the ones who do that, you are a political leader, not a scientist, engineer, architect, or artist, your power is strictly political in nature, only the ability of a real human leadership is given to you, though this means that you do not need to conduct research to discover political policies, you simply have all of them available to you from the beginning. on that note, you can choose from any political policy that has ever existed or from any political policy that had ever been proposed (the effects of these will need to be extrapolated from what is already known, or what is most likely).

>>813 I'm working on something similar. Think like how (((they))) put propaganda in everything except this game is going to all but name (((them)))
here is how katawa shoujo was made: - Idea guy posts image and states basic premise - Other anons think it's a good idea and start recruiting assigning roles, forming a small dev team "four leaf studios" - team begins creating game and posting updates, eventually releases demo and starts collecting fund via donations - more than enough is gathered to finish the project and so they do a bit extra notice how the idea guy doesn't get told to do it all by himself, notice how the idea guy is not even involved in the project past the first step. this is how a jewish movie is made: - jew producers find a barebones concept for a film from pitches - they hire a team of writers (not the idea guys) to flesh it out into a plot/script - they recruit a team of directors, actors, etc. (probably some of them will be jews) and production starts - any of the above may be altered in the course of production, but usually the core premise of the project remains the same (not always, however)

>>810 I just wish some anons out there would be dedicated enough to remaster Ethnic Cleansing. The game itself is trash but it is Pierce approved and deserves a remake.

>>819 Sounds like a less shit verison of Nation States. You would have to limit the amount of options to pick from though as you would need to caculate the outcome for all them. I could see that working though, having a drop-down for Currency Backing for instance (Labour Backed Fiat, Gold, Silver, Unbacked) and then the money disturbtion (Private Bond Aggragate /State through public works). I could see that working. >>826 I was thinking of remaking it in Brutal Doom some time ago, gave up because of texture issues but it may be duable with the "final release". It honestly would fit better as a Brutal Doom wad. It would probally look better tbh, Ethnic Cleansing was pain on the eyeballs and the fucking shadows? It's like you're playing as the El Paso shooter but the dork left his glasses at home.

My old monitor is nice and functional again so now I can watch video while I'm doing other things. Also handy for video editing and rendering. Had to move the fan on top of the printer tho... probably I should look for something smaller or more compact... or maybe get like one of those clippy fans and attach it it to one of the monitors. I should also get one of these dual monitor mounting jobbies... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MC9YX63/ref=dp_cerb_3 Also need to get an extension cord for the microphone (seen under the riser there) so I can stick it over on the left hand side. I keep the graphics tablet underneath my regular mouse and mouse pad and then just move them to the side when I want to use it. I also have this pillow thing I put on the top of the desk and on the floor I have a big block of memory foam with a heating pad that I use in the winter time so it's nice and cozy, especially when I throw a blanket over the whole thing. Overall it's quite nice. I may be dirt poor... but at the very least I have a "corner office" surrounded by windows with scenic views. Always gotta look at the positives! :D
1080p master-race. Why do you have a fancy keyboard but a normal ass mouse and mouse pad? Don't tell me you robbed the Razer store.
>>755 It's not a fancy keyboard at all, it's one of those cheap Chinese knock-offs. I think it cost less than $10 bucks on Amazon. It doesn't have like programmable lights or anything, they're either always on or they can do a fade in/out effect. I did have a pretty fancy mouse, this one $50 wireless jobbie... but then the rubber side pieces sorta melted/disintegrated after about a year. After that I got this little grocery store check-out logitech jobbie for like $10 bucks. It's like a laptop mouse so it's super tiny, but I've pretty used to it over the past couple years. I can't really afford anything too fancy right now... hence the reason my second monitor is a repair job of a decade old Acer PoS. I gotta make due with what I got, sort of a "scavenger build" if you will.

Hello, this is not a shill post. So I decided to create my own chan in python as a hobby (using the flask library) and this is what I have come up with so far. Just give me feedbacks here in this thread or there. Currently you can only upload jpeg , jpg , png , gif below the size of 4mb. https://rikchan.pythonanywhere.com

Woo, pays to make an offer! I even still got free shipping! D: Apparently it was the last one they had tho so they were probably just trying to get rid of it. I was about to trash the entire monitor too (since it's like a decade old). Didn't feel like soldering in new caps (especially since my soldering iron doesn't work very good). Plus it probably would have cost the same amount (if not more) for new caps. Granted it'll still probably burn out in 2 to 3 years, buuuut... I just need a dumpy second monitor to watch YouTube videos on while I'm doing other stuff, so it's not like it's some grand investment. For as often as capacitors fail (due to how cheap ass they're made) they really should start thinking about making them modular for quick/easy replacement... but then again I think maybe they do it on purpose... "planned obsolescence" and all like that. I think most of the caps are designed to fail at roughly the same time the warranty gives out.

Hi everyone! I have a question about image serving. I'm making a 4chan clone, and currently what I do is I download the image from the client, make thumbnails on the web server, and then I use rsync to send it to my "image server" which is just an Ubuntu box that serves a folder impartially. An issue (I think) is that I end up downloading the user's file twice. I download it once on the web server, and then again on the "image server."

I also have to make thumbnails, in which case I just use imagemagick. Currently, I make the thumbnails on the web server because I will likely have multiple instances of them running, it seems fitting to have harsher processes there. As a result, I also send the thumbnails and more to the "image server."

One issue I have is that I also have to manually delete files via rsync. While nginx is fast, if I were to soft delete a file in my database (the database contains basic file information like filename, format, date, and more), I wouldn't be able to forward the changes and prevent the box from serving the files. I depend on rsync to work, when I would prefer "checking" if a file is allowed to be shared before I send it to the client. Do you think it would be worth it to write up a REST api to ensure more control?

As you can see, there is no sync between the file system and the database, and this can result in me serving illegal content or for stale content to stack up and waste space.

Do you guys have any suggestions to how I can improve this architecture? Are there better ways to handle this? I'm going to have one instance of an "image server" and multiple instances of my web servers. I really don't want some random power outage to occur and end up serving illegal content unknowingly because I would have no way to sync my file system the database.

One solution I was thinking of was forwarding the request to a custom REST api that would communicate with the database and check if the files are safe to share. The only issue is that this doesn't solve the duplicate download....

Any advice would be helpful!

(pic related, it's what the app currently looks like)

>>291 Wut?! Uh... using thumbnails will SIGNIFICANTLY reduce bandwidth and increase loading speeds... also browser resizing is usually shit level bicubic or bilinear... or if you're using IE I think they're still stuck back in nearest neighbor resizing. I like using PHP with the Lanczos algorithm, in conjunction with cached thumbnails. You can create "perfect liquid" websites like this one I made back in the early 2Ks... http://mimkrys.epizy.com/qausi.html (you can also click on the window and drag it around) Resize your browser to any size you like and the entire site will recode itself on the fly... http://mimkrys.epizy.com/internals.js God Level coding! :D ...not very practical, but fun for "proof of concept" stuff.

Windows vs Linux Anonymous 02/01/2020 (Sat) 10:15:05 No. 718 [Reply] [Last]
Base up, W10 is superior. Easier, more efficient, better support and compatibility, less hassle. But for the die hards, why is Linux better to you?
(136.48 KB 1280x721 Olimex-a64-olinuxino-rev_c-id.jpg)
It's not like I'm married to Linux or anything. I also use other OS like OpenBSD or whatever else runs on my hardware. Well except crap like Android and Windows.
>>718 I only use linux because Windoze is essentially spyware. Maybe I'm a bit schizo and naive, but I've been told Microsuck screencaps usage for development purposes, and I don't agree with that type of thing.
>>718 Easier? Sure for many people but many linux distros are comparatively easier. You can even choose "difficult" distros that have automated install scripts for things like Gentoo or Arch and install visual desktops and package managers. You can get the best of both worlds without paying and being owned/spied on by your software. If you're using Windows and coming on these boards there are likely a few individuals interested in exploiting your windows machine that already have backdoors anyway. >better this and that I'll tell you. When I had a friend that updated to Windows 10, the first he complained about were the updates and getting stuck on shutdown and boot processing said updates. I currently then was trying a few distros with literally all of them working like a charm. With linux you don't get that pozz without seriously fucking up, and when you get more control that can lead more efficiency. I won't run windows on my machines over the fear of persistent intrusions and malware. If you're choosing a distro don't choose it by what comes preinstalled unless you don't want to install more software by choice. You can install many softwares without prior bloat depending on package repositories, or limitless opinions if compiling by source. My last windows OS was XP because of Vista infamy.
