implemented:

* ability for the enemies to shoot you, and for you to respawn
* bullet-bullet collisions
* accurate wall damage
* all 35 level layouts, ripped right from the original game

Show thread

added a simple snap-to-grid that would help if a tank is stuck somewhere

Show thread

added basic collision and tank animation. i think the game also has a trick where it snaps the tank to the grid if it doesn't fit just right, but i'll implement that once i actually get actual levels happening. there are also basic sound effects.

Show thread

generates a random level by placing random 4x4 level elements (and 15 different varieties of wall, because walls can be partially broken) and carves out spaces for the player tanks (4 instead of 2), enemies (6 instead of 3) and the base

actually kinda surprised by how few atheist/agnostic conservatives there are

i guess reddit and 4chan aren't accurate representations of the u.s. political landscape

RT @ryanburge@twitter.com

There's so much here.

Notice how there aren't many very conservative young people in any Christian tradition. They've likely left for the nones.

But there's even an age difference among atheists. Liberals are younger, conservatives are older.

What else do you see?

this was a big mistake, the north sentinelese hate PC gaming

In 2014, Valve initiated a program in which volunteering Steam users could market the Steam Machine to previously uncontacted hunter-gatherer tribes, with a special discount on games as a reward. This was quickly aborted after one volunteer was found dead in a ditch.

apparently, this town's definition of "discount store" is more like a warehouse that has checkouts at the end. nothing even close to store shelves, just rows and rows of palettes and warehouse containers.

politics 

in this house we believe
any political debate
needs to start with an axiom
that a person's life, liberty
and pursuit of happiness
is always more important
than upholding property rights

this is it.

this is the most annoying sign.

mom made some chinese dumplings off a youtube recipe... they tasted pretty good, especially for a first attempt!

i guess this giant spider robot got tired of spending so much time tearing down simulated cities in the year 2000 and has decided to tear down virtual city skylines in the present day instead
