  1. This sounds like a neat idea! The AI part of it all especially sounds interesting, especially where your pack is mostly NPCs. Seems like it would work well with the constant fight for dominance. Wish I was as productive with coming up with ideas during my bathroom trips as you are!
  2. Gosh, I haven't used the file manager that cPanel provides in a minute although I definitely know what you mean. I always found huge files to be a pain to load in that but it may have changed since I used it. How do you like the performance of the programming and file management part of it?
  3. I've been out of school for a little over a year now, and I'm ready to go back! I loved school. ;__; Gotta pay down the massive mountain of student loans I have going on, but I could see myself going back in a couple years. Not sure for what though.
  4. I second Liquid Web. When it says hero support, it really means it. Those guys are actually tech savvy and any one of them can fix your problem without rerouting you to 50 other people. It's a little on the expensive side though imo. I've had bad experiences with BlueHost. I've worked with clients who use that and it's always a pain to get backups or really anything through customer service. I can't remember all the issues we've had with them, but it's been at least 3 or 4 different problems that were very hard to solve without the help of customer support. I use Vultr for my games. It's pay as you use resources and it accepts Paypal. I currently have about 7 or 8 websites on that server and only pay ~$20/mo. In the past year and a half, I've never experienced downtime. It is unmanaged like some of the others mentioned before but on an unmanaged server, once you get everything installed, it's not much server maintenance. The only time I really go into the command line is to do version control these days. For database stuffs, I use Sequel Pro (on a mac) which is a cheaper option than cPanel if you're only ever going in for database editing. Vultr link: http://www.vultr.com/?ref=6841778
  5. I love diving. If I lived closer to the ocean, I'd do it every week but alas, I live in the mountains. I got certified last summer so if I ever get a chance to go, I jump on it. It's such an otherworldly experience to be able to breathe underwater and see animals we usually don't see because we, well, live on land. I'm going to revisit a quarry in the new few weeks to see some paddlefish. Besides that, I just like learning. I constantly need to be challenged, whether it's through work or personal projects. In three years at my job, I've moved from a newbie out of college to a director. For actual fun, I watch Asian dramas (Korean, Taiwanese, Japanese, Chinese, and sometimes Thai). A lot of people think that's weird, but there's actually a lot of Americans who follow Asian dramas, which a lot of the time are the live action version of an anime. But sometimes it follows its name and it's just a dramatic drama with memory loss, car accidents, and chaebols (the Korean word for rich people who inherit their family business). It's fun to have a window into a culture that is so different from my own. It's even encouraging me to learn Chinese. I can pick out words from the languages above except Thai (definitely harder for me in both written and spoken forms).
  6. @tiff That's really impressive! Quite a range of things you've got going on there. I've come to a point in my life where I'm having a hard time imagining anything further than a year out. Right now, I'm starting a new department for the company I work for. We've been an internet marketing company without an actual marketing department for about 3 years now (I know right, how does that even happen?). So the fact that my brain is still wired for development (this is actually my last week with development tasks) makes things even more challenging. Which having a challenge was my goal in the first place with this career change so it worked! Anyways... that's been consuming me for the past few months. Next year though (or the year after??), I hope to have the department stable and providing value to the company. By that point, I also hope to have my own business generating enough revenue that I could take the leap of quitting my job. Even though I love my job, I think the next challenge in my life is to build my own company.
  7. When I'm on Windows, I use Notepad++ but on Mac (which is most of the time), I use a Transmit/Atom combo. I'm really shallow and love the themes that I can install on it. At work, I always get asked which theme I'm using because of all the pretty colors. Plus, it's just easy to use and really customizable like TDL said. I did try out Sublime, Textmate, and VS Code but Atom is home. If you're working in Angular 2 with Typescript, VS Code is the way to go though.
  8. All from scratch. I work on a day-to-day basis with Wordpress development and really like concepts from how they do things, but I wanted the organization of Laravel. It's a mash-up between the two that speeds up development for adding new features to an existing feature set. Sort of a CMS MVC. I am possibly going to add a library for database migrations though. Been looking at a few of those. It's something that doesn't make sense to code from scratch.
  9. For the past few years (read forever and a half), Eqcetera has been undergoing a full recode that will replace the current version. It started under the era of Cayda and Starry and I'm continuing it. This recode is built on a fully custom MVC framework that took a year to develop. Now that most of the pieces of that are nailed down, features are actually being added quite quickly. We've gotten the following features in, and work continues on making them better in every update. Features: Login/Registration Account settings Online players News Forums Private messages Chat Bank Barns Rescue Purchase horses Breed horses Create shows Enter horses into shows Board horses Vet Assocations ... and more as features are added! If you're interested in viewing the progress, there is a demo for V2 happening on June 10th: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/v2-demo-2 After that, we'll start slowly letting older players into the new game to start testing and suggesting how to make it better. Any further updates will be posted on this thread.
  10. Hey guys! Not sure if any of you remember me. I haven't been active since 2014-ish. I came over from VPL like it seems a lot of you have. I'm a programmer who is working on a game framework for all of my different games. It's my one hobby outside of work it seems. Anyways, I'm always up for learning new things or looking at things from different angles. My favorite animal is a dog. I have an 8-month extremely goofy German Shepherd puppy who keeps me company. He's also great to bounce ideas off of since his go-to response is to tilt his head attentively like what I'm saying is the most interesting thing in the world. If only people were that way. So! I'm going to try to actually be social and post things. Maybe. If I don't get sucked into my work tornado. Feel free to hit me up for anything, be it a random message or question or whatever. Peace!
  11. Same here, @Nate. It took a year just to get my framework nailed down before I could even really start on game stuff.
