Despite the USA and UK governments’ advice I ended up staying in Shanghai during the ongoing Coronavirus crisis.
I wrote an article recently about my initial attempts to data drive Minecraft. Since then I’ve made a lot of progress with the system. I can create block items, spawn eggs, armor, tools, and food. I’ve added a spell system and can now attach spells to items.
Cut, Copy, Paste. Anyone not living under a rock for the past 30 years knows what these are and probably uses them every day. First made popular in the 80s by Apple’s Macintosh and Lisa computers, these surprisingly simple operations have influenced the way we use computers for generations.
One thing that’s been bugging me about modding for Minecraft is how much code you need to define data. I decided to see if it’s possible to data drive item creation with Forge.
I recently got around to redesigning my blog. The whole design uses only the colours available on the Commodore 64 – the first computer I ever made video games for. The theme is based on the underscores theme, a bare bones theme that supports sass.
I can’t believe I’ve only just discovered sass. Sass is a preprocessor for css that makes editing your site’s style much more manageable. It includes things like variables and scoping that makes editing style a lot easier. Sass can then be compiled to normal css and used in any website.
As a volunteer for Dragon Burn I am responsible for maintaining the Dragon Burn website. Part of that responsibility is curating images created by the Dragon Burn Community. As with other aspects of running a Burn, what seems like a simple task can have some unique challenges.
Note: Since I have a Windows machine this tutorial will focus on that platform.
Learning for the sake of learning is an exercise in futility. You will often end up losing focus and will never have achieved anything. You need to set a clear goal, and then figure out how to meet that goal.
The French Municipal Council built Hengshan Park in August 1925. During construction, they took 5000 tonnes of mud from XuJiaHui River. They used the mud to fill out the low-lying channel to the north of the park. Afterwards, they built a pavilion on top and planted many arbour trees.
