[00:00:13] <-- Kirben has left IRC (Client Quit)
[00:11:02] --> sbx has joined #exult
[00:14:12] <sbx> Someone going to respond to DK (Andrea) on the Exult ML?
[00:41:29] <servus> There's a mailing list?
[00:42:13] <sbx> sure is!
[00:43:50] <servus> Shows what I know
[00:44:34] <servus> Is there an archive?
[00:45:17] <sbx> Yeah but its unusable IMO
[00:45:19] <sbx> at the SF site
[00:45:29] <sbx> unusable because of all the spam to say the least
[00:45:29] <servus> IMO? SF?
[00:45:39] <sbx> in my opinion
[00:45:42] <sbx> SourceForge
[00:45:47] <servus> Why's it unusable?
[00:45:50] <sbx> someone sent me their archive of the ml
[00:45:59] <sbx> the spam and the interface
[00:46:41] <sbx> So I have mail going back to... 3/17/2002 :)
[00:51:17] <servus> What spam?
[00:51:55] <sbx> Until a few months ago they let anyone send a mail to the list, so it got a lot of it.
[00:52:18] <servus> I've never even heard about the mailing list until now
[00:52:35] <sbx> sorry :(
[00:52:38] <sbx> it's not very busy lately
[00:52:54] <sbx> It was listed on the website.
[00:53:11] <sbx> Exult-General@lists.sourceforge.net
[00:55:28] <sbx> servus: Made any new rocks recently?
[00:56:26] <servus> No
[00:56:30] <servus> No new rocks.
[00:56:44] <servus> I made mountains though. They look cool as bee's knees I think, but you've already seen them.
[00:57:23] <sbx> Yeah. What about snowcaps?
[00:58:09] <servus> You saw them.
[00:58:32] <servus> http://24.205.117.63:81/images/screenshots/Exult3D-34.jpg
[00:58:37] <sbx> The snowy peaks of the Serpent Spine mountains beckoned to be traversed.
[00:58:44] <sbx> I didn't think they were that snowy.
[00:58:50] <servus> It's not snow.
[00:59:00] <servus> It's just a whiter shade of rock... Snow is dumb, imho :-p
[00:59:13] <sbx> Why?
[00:59:16] <servus> I turned off lighting to get a better look at seams.
[00:59:20] <servus> Because they are 20 feet high that's why :-p
[01:00:45] <sbx> It's cold in britannia.
[01:01:03] <sbx> See how small those trees in the jungle are?
[01:01:10] <servus> Because Nell won't give LB any loving.
[01:01:16] <servus> What are you talking about?
[01:01:27] <sbx> What are you talking about?
[01:02:38] <sbx> But yeah, mountains should be taller.
[01:03:33] <servus> They are taller!
[01:03:59] <sbx> TALLER
[01:04:01] <servus> See the very tops of the corner pieces? That's the original mountain height. I took a gamble by making peaks taller.
[01:04:45] <sbx> 2X scale
[01:04:49] <sbx> but I'm glad you did that :)
[01:07:35] <-- Baastuul has left IRC ("Reconnecting.")
[01:07:53] <servus> It has bugs
[01:08:03] <servus> The peaks don't all fit together nicely, and it's not my fault.
[01:08:50] --> Baastuul has joined #exult
[01:08:53] <sbx> 3x scale?
[01:09:16] <servus> The problem remains
[01:09:30] <servus> Anything above 1x scale has seam problems that aren't at my control.
[01:13:46] --> Baastuul_ has joined #exult
[01:15:05] <-- Baastuul has left IRC (Nick collision from services.)
[01:15:06] --- Baastuul_ is now known as Baastuul
[01:18:03] <servus> So unless you have any clever ideas, the mountains are going back to 1x scale.
[01:18:37] <sbx> shrink the avatar
[01:19:17] <servus> Oh now why didn't I think of that...
[01:19:46] <sbx> you also have to shrink his friends and the castle too
[01:19:51] <sbx> and lord british
[01:21:37] <servus> So... shrink everything but the mountains? :-)
[01:21:56] <servus> I could make the corners go up past 1x, and keep the mountaintops flat
[01:22:02] <servus> That'd look kinda dumb though
[01:22:13] <sbx> heh
[01:22:21] <sbx> Would it look right if you viewed it from all angles?
[01:22:24] <servus> So the only good way to make mountains peaks actually have peaks is to make some sort of "cap"
[01:22:46] <servus> That would, but the current method does not, simply because the white parts don't all line up
[01:22:54] <sbx> snowcap
[01:23:22] <servus> Yeah...

[22:21:44] * servus just filed a complaint to the Better Business Bureau about Charter Communications
[22:22:51] <sbx> Power to the people, right on.
[22:23:01] <servus> Doubt it'll do anything.
[22:23:07] <servus> They are royally screwing me, though.
[22:24:12] <sbx> ?
[22:24:13] <sbx> I thought you work for a computer company.
[22:25:01] <servus> Charter High-Speed Internet
[22:28:20] <sbx> I wish I had High-Speed Internet.
[22:28:45] <servus> As of January 1 my service went downhill incredibly fast.
[22:28:59] <servus> That's when I started getting disconnected all the time, and my download speeds dropped to 15% of what they used to be.
[22:29:59] <sbx> consumer broadband service seems to suck in general
[22:30:04] <sbx> not sure why, but I always hear complaints
[22:30:17] <servus> They are very rude on tech support, too.
[22:30:29] <sbx> People have had similiar experience with the cable company here too.
[22:30:48] <servus> I was told something very similar to "If you want to play Counter-Strike, you'll have to pay for extremely expensive commercial service"
[22:32:03] <sbx> as if that's not the only reason I'd be using their service
[22:32:33] <servus> Verizon DSL was (for me) much better service.
[22:48:20] <servus> No-one is interested in my reflective water :-)
[22:49:27] <sbx> ?????
[22:52:52] <sbx> Tell me about it.
[22:52:53] <servus> This one: http://24.205.120.49:81/images/screenshots/Abyss-16.jpg
[23:02:28] <sbx> I love that effect. But what is this "Abyss" you speak of?
[23:02:32] <sbx> I thought you meant in Exult.
[23:05:23] <servus> Ultima Underworld 1-inspired game engine.
