Hello, I’m afraid I haven’t done much work on projects this past week.
Every time I do one of these posts where I have very little to share, it feels like I’m coming up with excuses just for the sake of making a post. I feel like I could do more, & I apologize for this.
This seems to be a common habit for me. Roughly every third week I won’t do so well with my game projects, usually due to some mix of life events & downtime habits. Technically yes I do have time to work on my game projects, but instead I vouch for games, youtube, anime, or whatever I may be into at the time. In other words, I’m like 90% of people in western culture today who like to be non-productive for some odd reason.
I’ll at least share some things that have come up recently:
- I didn’t get the support worker role I mentioned a couple weeks ago, but my work brokers have directed me towards another company with a similar opening. I’ve just applied for this yesterday so I hope things turn out better this time.
- All weekend I’ve been seeing some friends who are going to be leaving Dunedin by the end of this week. This included a couple games of D&D & some very late nights. It’s kinda sad to have them go, but I might end up seeing them again if I move to Wellington, which might very well be a thing if I go for an IT job.
- My car is still dying in mid-drive every so often. I’ve finally got around to driving it to a garage to be fixed again. This happened yesterday as well.
- Just today I closed a door on my finger, causing a swelling bruise on the tip. Nothing serious, but it makes typing very awkward since it feels like the bruise could pop (sorry for the imagery).
That’s not to say I haven’t made any progress this week. I’ve briefly returned to the top down shooter I started a few weeks ago. I’ve simply set-up a level controller script that spawns rooms in a grid. I’m already getting some lag issues so I’ll have to find some way to optimize things. I could start by not rendering tiles when outside the camera’s field of vision.
Otherwise, not much else to share, sorry. Hope things were more eventful in your life, & I hope to have something more substantial next week.
