[01:03:18] <watt> wjp: oh cool. I had a function that translated for the Z-face, but it wasn't anything special. I think I'll try this out now.
[01:19:15] <watt> hmm.. how about a transToWorldOnFace(mx,my,ItemSorter:Face,coords[3]) method?
[01:21:42] <watt> err.. still need a item.
[01:24:29] <watt> perhaps just a transToWorldTrace... Since I can't think of any reason we would want to translate coordinates to thin air.
[01:32:54] <watt> actually I think TraceCoordinates is probably a good enough name.
[01:33:12] <watt> works well with TraceObjId
[01:49:32] <watt> crap. Need to add the dragged item into TraceCoordinates too....
[01:50:21] <watt> but optionally, we only need it for it's x and y dimensions.
[01:51:54] <watt> It's still cool. In the targetted jump that item would be avatar anyway.
[03:23:40] <watt> hmm. finished... interesting bug(?) I found too... put an item on your head, walk away, the item stays in air. Put another item on top of it, then move the bottom item. The top item gets proper notification and falls.
[03:24:13] <watt> maybe actors need to do the same notification?
[03:24:50] <watt> But then again item technically should roll of actors heads.

[08:38:59] <servus> I've implemented line of sight in Ultima.
[08:39:09] <servus> No one wants my help, though :->
[08:39:25] <servus> Zo droevig!
[08:39:29] <sbx> geh
[08:39:40] <sbx> hi servus
[08:39:43] <servus> Hi.
[08:39:53] <servus> Geh aan u ook.
[08:40:09] <sbx> no
[08:40:13] <sbx> what?
[08:40:21] <servus> Aiee!
[08:40:44] <servus> I made a website for Pentagram. No one wanted it, which is OK, but no one would say they didn't want it, which is shameful. I'm bitter.
[08:42:16] <sbx> what sort of revenge do you have planned?
[08:42:26] <sbx> please tell everyone
[08:43:08] <servus> I plan to kill the titans and steal their power.
[08:43:55] <sbx> you could banish someone to Pagan but everyone here seems to like it there
[08:45:30] <servus> Arcadian doesn't.
[08:45:57] <servus> Seriously, though.
[08:46:16] <servus> Bitter bitter als een citroen!
[08:46:34] <wjp> citroenen zijn zuur, niet bitter ;-)
[08:47:02] * servus haalt op
[08:47:48] <servus> Seriously, though. That's why I stopped doing Ultima-related work. Just thought I'd say.
[08:48:35] <sbx> I didn't think you'd still be mad about it.
[08:51:16] <servus> I was never mad -- I was jaded. I like to be told when my work isn't wanted; I don't like to work for nothing.
[08:51:25] <servus> That is, work on something that won't be used.
[08:51:44] <servus> <? unset( $Rant ); ?>. Well. That's that.

[11:13:36] <ZutGu> hi
[11:13:39] <ZutGu> anyone here?
[11:14:06] <sbx> me
[11:14:29] <ZutGu> Do I need to install pentagram to u8 install dir or can I put it to where I want ?
[11:15:57] * ZutGu waiting answer
[11:16:34] <sbx> you can install it anywhere if you edit the config to point to u8
[11:16:43] <sbx> ...im going to guess
[11:16:48] <ZutGu> hmm
[11:17:05] <ZutGu> ok
[11:17:37] <ZutGu> I have never before played Ultima8 :P
[11:17:46] <ZutGu> big hole in my life and now I will fill it
[11:18:10] <sbx> i only played a little bit
[11:18:14] <sbx> the very start of the game
[11:19:18] <ZutGu> ok
[11:21:45] <ZutGu> argh
[11:23:35] <ZutGu> pentagram doesn't start :/
[12:44:06] <watt> servus: I never said your work wasn't wanted. I said I was building another prototype for the site. You're the one who deleted your prototype, not me. I would have been perfectly ok with using elements in your prototype. You have no one to blame for this except yourself.
[12:45:35] <watt> anyway. Time for work.. bye.
[13:16:30] <Darke> On a completely unrelated note: http://www.local6.com/news/3547722/detail.html <- Biiiiiig bunny! (Soon, they'll take over, the WORLD! *muhahahaha!*)

[15:00:43] <wjp> hm, judging by the pattern in our last couple of website updates the next one should be tomorrow :-)
[15:01:44] <wjp> did we do anything last week/
[15:01:45] <wjp> ?
[15:02:14] <wjp> item placement is pretty much it, so far, I guess
[15:54:20] <wjp> hehe, I just got a message from the "Pentagram Research Centre"
[15:54:35] <Colourless> details
[15:54:39] <wjp> (which is apparently a computer science thingy in India)
[15:56:52] <wjp> doesn't seem to be a very interesting message; something about http://www.icsci2005.org/
[15:57:36] <Colourless> spam
[15:57:44] <wjp> yeah, pretty much :-)
