12:17 AM
I'm sitting in the dark on a rocking chair...
 
1:00 AM
I'm no longer sitting in the dark on a rocking chair...
 
Kay
@AlexandreVaillancourt standing in the dark now ?
 
Hahaha :P
Nah, I'm done with the dark until I'm off to bed.
 
 
1 hour later…
2:28 AM
@Kay In fact, I'm thinking about how I would simulate the terrain of open pit mine/quarry that would evolve as trucks dig.
 
2:45 AM
@AlexandreVaillancourt I prefer the dark
 
@bruglesco Is there a reason for that?
 
I have excellent night vision?
I hide from sunlight in fear of being burnt?
I'm just really moody?
 
Hehe :P
Darkness has it's purpose :) I can associate it with good things!
 
Ohh and before I had kids I was a night owl
I generally went to bed at sunrise
 
But I don't like using the computer or TV in the dark
 
2:49 AM
yeah it causes eyestrain
 
Ah, yeah, I know that. I did that when I was in college :P
And I agree, things change when you have kids.
 
thats an understatement
 
I have a couple of friends who kept doing their things after they got a kid. And after two you years, the guy told me, looking a bit desperate "welp... it seems that this little guy needs a routine, after all..."
 
3:04 AM
haha I thought the story was gonna get way worse.
Like he guy told me, looking a bit desperate "welp... The wife is leaving me and taking the kids and now I'm gonna go to the bar"
(You're version was better (read: happier))
 
Hehe maybe in that case it would have been "and I'm going back to the bar, where I usually am".
 
@AlexandreVaillancourt yup. much more consistent.
 
That's an issue when the wife is also often found at that bar...
"Kid's in the car, my cell phone is there with him, so we'll hear him when he starts to cry."
 
"welp... Child Services took the kids so the wife and I are going back to the bar."
 
"We'll show them how bad we can be at parenthood, those bastards" :P

It's unfortunate to think that it's probably a true story.
 
3:16 AM
@AlexandreVaillancourt I used to work at a bar. A police officer came in and told a woman she had to come with him. She didn't understand why it wasn't okay to be drinking at the bar with an infant in her car. After all she cracked the windows.
ohh far too many true stories like that unfortunately
 
@bruglesco eeeeek :/

I just found out my laptop's monitor is 120hz
what the actual fu..
 
 
1 hour later…
11:33 AM
Anyone on?
  public Spaces(int a,String b,String c){//Constuctor for Dinos.
    String ds= "d" + a;
    Dino ds = new Dino(a,b,c);
  }
Consider that I want to make instatiate d1,d2,d3,d4,d5.
Why won't it instatiate it?
 
uuh that doesnt really make sense
what do you mean by "why wont it instantiate it?"
also you have two variables named "ds"
 
I want to create class named d1,d2
 
named?
 
yeah all the dinos are subclasses of spaces class which the constructor is located in
 
so what are you actually trying to do
i still have zero idea what you want to accomplish
 
11:47 AM
from the constructor create classes named d1,d2,d3,d4 so what I am doing is using the interger from the superclass and concating it with d so I create instatiate a subclass called d1,d2,d3,d4,d5. However ds is a variable name but I want to call it d1.
or d + int a
 
so you want a variable d1 to contain a new instance of Dino?
And a variable d2 to contain another instance of Dino?
 
yeah
 
You can't create a variable name from another variable like that
You probably want an array instead
 
why can't I?
 
Because that's not how programming languages without a preprocessor work
Why do you want five different instances?
You probably actually really want to put them into an array
 
11:49 AM
each dino class will has selected methods though.
 
huh?
I think you need to show more code
You're making very little sense and this sort of feels like an XY-problem
 
Why is the class named Spaces?
What does it do?
Why do you need five different variables for Dino instances, and what's wrong with just making five variables for Dino instances?
 
I think to use a array
 
Dino d1 = new Dino(...);
Dino d2 = new Dino(...);
Dino d3 = new Dino(...);
Dino d4 = new Dino(...);
Dino d5 = new Dino(...);
 
11:53 AM
it is a monopoly board game
 
Dino[] dinos = new Dino[5];
dinos[0] = new Dino(...);
dinos[1] = new Dino(...);
You probably want an array like that
 
ok but each dino has three variables. It has a description,name and and a interger. Will I be able to use that with an array?
 
yes
 
ok thanks
 
dino[0] = new Dino("description for dino 1", "dino1", 12);
2
 
11:58 AM
thanks
 
dino[1] = new Dino("description for dino 2", "dino 2", 134);
and so on
 
looks like I going to have to change the four players synatx to an array as well.
 
good idea
 
but for the dino can I put Dino[] dinos = new Dino[5]; in the main?
 
that's the array syntax yes
 
12:02 PM
ok
@Tyyppi_77 where should I declare 'Dino[] dinos = new Dino[5];
'
 
where you need that data
 
12:30 PM
hello
 
hi
 
12:53 PM
ayo!
 
 
7 hours later…
7:43 PM
What are your guy's favourite / (the one you used the most) programming languages?
 
8:28 PM
@PintOfMilk probably either C or C#
 
@PintOfMilk C++
 
What do you think will be the most popular language in ten years? @TheMattbat999 @Tyyppi_77
 
Why?
I suppose it is oop+procedural...
 
It has been the reigning champ since its debut. Unless C plus plus plus (3 are intentional) comes out between then, it will probably stay the champ
Oh i seen your second question, but i was getting my butt kicked on a game
 
9:01 PM
@PintOfMilk Popular language for what?
Most used anywhere? JavaScript, probably
10 years isn't a lot even in a fast changing industry like computers
 
Especially when it comes to languages. C is over 40 years old, yet it is used today for baseline software. C++, JavaScript, and other commonly used languages are counting up some years too. Generally hardware is where 10 years make a huge difference.
 
Web isn't going to do a total switch to something different suddenly
 
9:20 PM
C++
@Tyyppi_77 Even if they do. The existing codebases will still last decades. Hell COBOL is still around for that very reason.
a user was removed. Now I have exactly 500 rep
yay for round numbers
 
9:47 PM
@bruglesco Yeah, I lost 50 on that today.
 
Is it weird that I always see User was removed as a scavenger hunt?
@DMGregory also that's not too bad. You've been around quite some time. For them to only have voted on five of your answers.
 
@bruglesco Me too, I'm always curious who it was and which posts they'd voted on!
I got a +30 bump today from Oskar Stålberg linking one of my answers so I really can't complain. ;)
You may have noticed that a non trivial fraction of my twitter activity consists of gently inquiring whether people posting 3x3 tilesets are familiar with Marching Cubes/Corner Tiles. Here's a good short overview, with pictures, by @D_M_Gregory https://gamedev.stackexchange.com/questions/148460/combinations-for-tiling-two-textures-together
 
ohh wow that is a good thorough answer
 
10:30 PM
@bruglesco i hate when someone's account is deleted when they had posted on something
Awesome, one of my messages are on the star list 😁😁😁
 
11:32 PM
I've seen several games that include a tax percentage slider, or a set of sliders that indicate how much to take and where to distribute the money. Have any of you heard of games that have more complex tax system or that allow you to change tax policy?
