  1. Hmm I'm not entirely sure :o but thanks either way!
  2. Christ, it's been forever. I figure since this thread is suddenly super-active again, here's an updated pic.
  3. Hello, good people of Ascension. I've created a character for my game. It looks like utter shit, but quite frankly I don't care because it's a custom piece that I can use freely in any of my projects, and I'm perfectly fine with that. Enjoy. <3
  4. Since there's literally only 1 or 2 links in this entire section that lead to a live site that has content on it, I've figured I'd take the time to populate this section with another website: mine. https://zebulunmcneill.com I work as a freelance web developer, mainly using WordPress although I'm capable of building static sites from scratch using pure HTML/CSS.
  5. @Interface here you go! Also, you'll probably need to get a font called FantaisieArtistique. You can find it pretty easily via a google search.
  6. No problem! I can't wait to see your game!
  7. Sorry mate, it's currently on my computer at work, and I won't be back in until Monday. I'd hack into it, but I've turned it off for the weekend. /:
  8. Did you want just the text, without the background image?
  9. lol. you should probably crop that just a wee bit more.
  10. It's not very great. Threw it together in about five minutes. Just so you know, I don't own the image - I don't even know who owns it. Though I found the source image from here.
  11. THE STATUS UPDATES ARE WORKING AGAIN

      It was a dark time for all of us.

      xD apart from me I am too lazy to use them

  12. Just putting out an announcement: we've obtained an opinion writer - Sebastian Gaffer (someone I know irl), thus bringing down the number of opinion writers needed. Still in desperate need of fact writers, (though we have room for a couple more opinion writers if that's your cup of tea). Go check out the application, and shoot me a PM letting me know that you've applied! I look forward to working with you!
  13. A guides master, eh? I must say, you've piqued my curiosity. I'll have to see if I can set aside some extra time at some point.
  14. Thanks for asking! I forgot to add that to the original post, will do so in a moment. You can find the site at https://emeraldobserver.com/. Please bear in mind that the site is still under construction, so the styling looks a bit horrid right now. I've got a few articles already set up just to test the layouts and work on styling. Since most of those articles are direct rips from other sources, they'll eventually be removed.
  15. Basic Info Hello, Ascension community! I'm on a search for two specific breeds of content writers for The Emerald Observer: journalists and columnists. Please keep in mind that there's no experience required for either of these positions, so long as you're able to do research (if a journalist) and write on a semi-professional level. This means you must be capable of decent grammar and spell-checking, as well as a certain fluency with the English language. Unfortunately, this is not (as of this moment) a paid position, so you would be volunteering your time towards this. I hope this would change in the future, as I'd like to be able to compensate you for your time and talents, but I currently am unable to do so. Thank you for your understanding. Please check the bottom of this post to get an updated count on the number of positions available and the descriptions/duties for each available position. You'll also find a link to the application for you to fill out, should you be interested. So long as you're able to write in a coherent and semi-professional manner, you'll be considered. Once you submit the application, I'll get back to you within a couple of days to let you know whether or not you've been accepted. If you're accepted, then we can begin the onboarding process. We also have a new points system in place. This system currently is just a way to keep track of our best authors, sort of like a ranking system. We plan on adding more functionality to the point system in the near future. Eventually, if I'm able to pull in enough money to where I would be able to pay the authors, then we'll also use the point system as a way to calculate the amount you're due - the more points you accumulate, the more money you'll earn. Again, keep in mind, this particular functionality will only become available when I'm financially able to compensate you. Onboarding Process - Once you're accepted, I'll set you up with an author account on the website (still under construction). - I'll walk you through our process of gathering information for new articles. - You can begin writing! (seriously, it's that simple) Available Positions Journalist (10 remaining) Gather sufficient information to write a news article on a particular current topic, and then proceed to write that article. Keep in mind that this is not a position in which you would be reporting on historic events (unless they pertain to current events in some manner), so try to ensure that what you're reporting on is within a day or two of the current date. You're free to limit your writings to specific genres of news (politics, economics, etc). There is no requirement on how often you write articles, although I'd encourage you to write at least once per week. Columnist (2 remaining) Write a few short paragraphs explaining your opinions on current events, or other such columnist-related articles. There is a minimum requirement of one post per week for this particular position. Application
  16. Alright, see ya JC! Enjoy your vacation! Psst, Damian666. I've got a couple of Molotovs and a flamethrower. Wanna party?
  17. The Adventures of Follergold. This is the first game I've ever tried to make, many many years ago. Almost all of the graphics were drawn by yours truly, using Paint. This excludes Gamemaker's standard graphics that you also see in the game. And this one is somewhat more recent, a terrible mockup of a text-based pet-raising game, where you adopt a cat. In this screenshot, I named my cat JCSnider. Introducing: Keety. If you would like to fiddle with either of these monstrous creations yourself, then here are links for The Adventures of Follergold and for Keety.
  18. PhenomenalDev, I see you forking my zombie repo. :P

    1. Phenomenal

      Phenomenal

      Wasn't even a good repo :-\

    2. Gahduvdeth

      Gahduvdeth

      Yeah, well, I haven't had much time to actually *start* the project. (;

  19. Wait, does this mean I need a $2,400 shield for my $1,200 hooker?
  20. https://github.com/Gahduvdeth Nothing too amazing, as I'm just kinda starting out with using Github. (Not to mention I don't have much time during the week to begin with to even dedicate to any projects).
  21. Edited with your suggestion, thanks!
  22. Excellent question, Gibier! Digital Ocean is a bit different from places that normally charge by the month. The fee is listed as "per month", but it's calculated by the hour, with a certain maximum number of hours each month (672) being what Digital Ocean has determined is their "average". So if you only use a server for 100 hours and you shut it down, then you'll only be charged for that 100 hours instead of an entire month. So the price is, technically, calculated per hour, up to a maximum of 672 hours per month, at which point you're billed.
  23. Hello, all. Are you in need of a good VPS? Perhaps you feel they're out of your budget, or too complex to set up. Well, ladies and gentlemen and Gwen, look no further because I've got exactly what you're looking for! For as low as $5 per month, you can have your very own Virtual Private Server! Isn't that amazing? You can bet your underpants that it's amazing! I present to you, a marvelous VPS service that I've been using, called Digital Ocean. Seriously, these people are spectacular. They have everything from servers for people on a budget, to people who need 224GB of RAM on a 32 Core Processor with a 10TB data transfer rate. I shit you not, they have that option. Scout's honour. (Wait, can I say that if I was never a scout? Bah, who cares?!) Would you like to try out their service for free? How about, try it out for a whopping two months for free? Well, I'm also providing that for you as well. By clicking this link, (it's a referral link) I'm literally gifting each and every single one of you with $10 to go toward a Digital Ocean VPS. Seriously. Please click on it. The fate of humanity depends on it. But enough of the hype-talk. Digital Ocean is pretty damn good, in my opinion. You can use it for anything from hosting a game server, to parallel processing (since you can configure multiple servers to communicate privately with each other), to your own private email server. They've got easy installs of tons of apps, everything from Wordpress to Mumble to Django. But yeah, I highly recommend you check them out, especially by clicking this link. Seriously. Please click on it. The fate of humanity depends on it. JUST CLICK THE ******* LINK! <- referral link. please click on it. Haha, love you guys.
