Really wish I could just NEET my way through life on infinite autismbux or something. the world outside is shitty, the people living in it are shitty, being a productive member of society means being a soulless worker drone working for the benefit of moneyed fat jews and old men watching the world burn as they swim in their vaults like some hilariously depressing version of scrooge mcduck.
I just want to fucking opt out of it all. The rest of the world can go fuck itself for all I care, I just want to be happy and live on my own terms even if that means being a disgusting hikki.
And yeah, what I meant was in indev and partially into infdev (I think it was) water basically would fill an entire block with water in every direction but up. They changed it so it will only become a "source block," if two other water source blocks are touching it. Otherwise it flows for 7 or 8 spaces I think it was.
>>269166991 no. We literally hyped up the game based on the hope of it being made good once it got updated. The early alpha showed a lot of promise. Then after /v/ promoted it the rest of the world caught on and gave Mojang billions of dollars. Then they never had to update it and we are somehow still stuck with the development stage graphics.

>>269168224 I wish businesses like McDolan and Subbies were not quite as dirty as they are. I'd gladly purchase a piece of the chain if it weren't a huge fucking scam.
Unfortunately, owning any other type of business outside of a chain just doesn't have the brand recognition unless we do something groundbreaking.
So the capital is available, sure, but the major industries and the "aha" ideas are mostly gone.
I'm sure there are plenty of industries still out there that need some form of innovation, but that's the fun of it. The person who does it is the genius where the rest of us are assholes who say "I could have thought of that."
I will however say this. Brand recognition means everything. You could sell a kick to the balls so long as you had a snappy logo that everyone knew.
>>269167993 I am learning networking for this exact purpose. I have already figured out women and business from college. But the internet remained magical to me, time to ruin this too. Leave no stone unturned and nothing can suprise or disapoint you again
Remember when Notch used to post on /v/ all the time and ask for ways to improve his game before he started shilling and fled to reddit? Remember when most posters on /v/ weren't here for that so they tell you to go to reddit whenever you mention it?

>>269168654 Do you remember the original Tribes or Tribes 2? Tribes was the first online game that truly actually made me 'really' sad that it died. Tribes had extremely heavy server-side modding. Which meant that, together with the built in Master List, you could go into hundreds of servers and almost every other one had a unique mod on it that made it a entirely different game. Want to play Base(Default game)? Plenty of those servers. Want to play a gamemode that revolved around being sneaky? There was Spymod. Hookshots and everything. Want to chillax and build? You could spawn items, move them around and make complex buildings with ModX. All online and without having to download a single thing. And best yet, all worthwhile servers had up to 50 players or so. Back in the prime, there was up to a hundred or so players on a single server. It was fucking glorious. Then it just died a very slow death. Then Ascend came out and everyone started crapping their pants without even knowing the true history of the game. I knew it wouldn't be the same and I had no hopes for it. Almost weirdly insulting it was made though.
The only other one that made me feel this way was recent- Shores of Hazeron.

>>269178469 Completely online, had the graphics of a mid-90's 3D PC game. But you started on a randomly generated planet. Find stone, wood, etc. Build a home and farm, random NPCs move in to work for you and gather instead. Keep getting more and better stuff until you can, get this, make a spaceship, fully customized by you in 3D, and fly it into space to explore your own solar system. When you're flying around, you can either control the ship yourself, which can be easy or hard depending on the ship and the planets individual atmosphere (Going too fast in a atmosphere will murder the ship). Or you can make NPCs drive for you while you run around and play with other stations or look at space from any windows you made, etc. Hell, theres even a station to 'wire' different parts of the ship together. Either for repairs, or better efficiency in something. Although it was pretty complicated and could blow something up if done wrong. Make moonbases for special materials, or bases on Ice Planets, etc. All 'randomly geerated' but with set 'types'. Eventually, make a warpdrive or a 'lightspeed' drive and go out of your solarsystem. The entire game galaxy was large enough and spaced out so that, from one solar system to another, might take about 6-8 hours without a warpdrive. From one side of the galaxy to another, would take about 6 months without a warpdrive. All with other players dotted about in the galaxy, who can either raid/fight you, or become a ally so you can trade inventory and shit. Oh yeah, and cities had their own economies. So you would eventually need to script ships and captains to fly from one planet to another to trade goods so you could earn more. Global Chat was also a thing because not many people played.
>>269178574 Hell, even the solarsystems skyboxes were generated by what was actually in the game. The sky was fucking amazing. All of this, and the only loadscreens were starting up the game, and going between solar systems(Only like a 15 second load. Considering the size of everything, that's not much). And yet, the dev just shut it down maybe a month ago. I simply can't explain my butthurt. ...And so, my journey to make the same damn game has begun.
I used to host a server for /x/ years ago, which was good fun, built a lot of cool spooky shit Unfortunately I lost everything I had saved before 2012 in a hard drive crash so I lost all my old screenshots of it. Shame.
>>269178836 Oh, someone who actually knows the game. DO THE LIMBO DANCE Seriously though, for what the game was, I was fine with the lag. It's not very often you had to do anything that actually took any reaction skills though, so I felt fine dealing with hitting the autorun key and waiting for the lag to stop slutting the galaxy up. I still understand the frustration though, fucking Haxus. Does networking code worse than even Nintendo(Been better lately, I admit, but still).
>>269168806 >tfw even if you could go back in time you wouldn't fix things
The thing that really screwed me going right into adulthood was that I was madly in love with this girl. Her and I had been together for 5 years, I was supposed to be getting ready to go to school and preparing myself for life but she was already going so I decided to start working and get an apartment for the two of us.
Of course the typical breakup happened, she cheated on me and then told me she was falling out of love with me and I just got lost in it all. After she left I continued working and living my life because I didn't know what to do and didn't want to go back home and be a failure. Looking back on it all the only thing I would do is slap myself in the fucking face and tell myself to start preparing to go to college. It wouldn't fix anything per say but at least I could say I tried. I guess there's always still time being 23 and all...
>>269179258 >24 >Known women since I was 12(She is only 3 years older) Fequently hung out and talked through the years. >Helped me get out of my parents abusive situation. >Very logical thinker. Moreso than I am. >Got 'together' when I turned 18 >Married a year ago. First anniversary coming up. >Trust eachother with our lives. Still, say she cheats on me, I'd only be upset I couldn't have joined and she didn't tell me first. We're pretty open with eachother. If you ever find someone who you could comfortably tell "I find him/her attractive" without 'hurting their feelings', you know you got someone special. Trust is a real thing, but I've not found anyone else who can hold it as well as we can. Simply because we're both straight to the point and honest. Even if it's abit painful sometimes, she never slaps me with something just to 'get back' at me or hurt my feelings. People like that do exist anon. Sadly though, it is pretty much all just a matter of luck. Speaking of, I wish you the most of it. I'm sorry for all of that wasted time and pain. People suck.
>>269168806 >implying you wouldn't just create a timeline were something else would happen to "fuck your life up"
There's no escaping suffering. Nobody gets through life 100% happy or satisfied. The only way to be satisfied, to never be hungry, tired, lonely, insecure, sad/scared/angry, regretful or in pain, is to be dead. And without any of that suffering, there will be nothing good or fun to balance it out. To become nothing, to stop the pain, means to let go of all possibility of happiness. Your life isn't a movie and there's no quantifiable value to pain and happiness ("my mother dying = -50, but basking in the nice weather only = +2, so I'm not happy enough!"). You find happiness and satisfaction in the spice of life, in the little moments and pockets of reality where all the horribleness falls away if only for a moment. You've been sold aspirational bullshit by people who want you to work for them all your life, being told that you need to be head-over-heels in love with the most perfect woman ever, or be rich, or go on a swashbuckling adventure, or whatever the fuck, in order for your life to be fun and "valid". So you'll work harder and chase the carrot on the stick, forgetting about the other carrot in your jacket pocket. No matter what you do, you won't escape "fucking up your life", but if you actually take a breather and look around you'll find out you already have so many wonderful things to take satisfaction in.
>>269179716 Honestly things felt that way for a solid 4 years but something changed after she went to college and I felt like she kind of just got fed up with me. I could comfortably say that I trusted her with my life back in the day. I was a lot like you in that she was my escape from all the shittiness my family was constantly dredging up.
She's already married now and I'm honestly happy for her but it just sucks that I feel like I got left with the short end of the stick. Still it always gives me hope to see other people in trusting successful relationships. All I can do now is take care of myself until I get my life straightened out. I'll be much happier and more confident once I get myself through school and everything.
>>269181657 You have to realize that the good moments are sparse, it's only when a large portion of /v/ combines all their hatred into something that it become something glorious. Not the best moment /v/ had, but everyone remembers the Tribes Ascend match with Reddit. That shit was almost 4 years ago!
>>269180078 Seriously, stop looking at the bleak and look at the good. Have you ever just gone for a walk and looked at all that's around you? The squirrels wandering around, the trees blowing in the wind, people's houses getting set up for different events, the different makes of cars, the realization that so much work went into even getting this point in life. Yeah, life is all hustle and bustle, and sure it really really sucks from time to time, but there's a whole world out there. Pick up a camera and take some pictures of it.
Even though I can barely walk for a long amount of time, these beautiful things are always dear to me. If you let the burdens and stresses of life always get to you you're going to implode one day.
>>269182095 He's a pathetic manbaby who gets pushed around by everyone. His wife and him were in a relationship where they could sleep with people outside of their relationship and his wife was getting all kinds of fat cock while he couldn't get any. She left him recently and took his Wii-U.
It's a great time to be alive when you aren't Anthony Burch. Hell, even you aren't Anthony Burch.
>>269166991 I still have my first world saved on a flash drive, it was from back in super early stages so the world generation is all fucked up causing missing chunks and floating islands, it's cool as hell.
I got lost exploring away from my homebase, ran into a village, deposited my stuff there in a chest and suicided. Then I made a compass and got lost trying to get lost in the same way so that I end up in the village to collect my stuff. I got blown up by creepers. I can't go on /v/ it's over for me.

>>269190278 Neither of these >>269172901 >>269178086 have anything to do with vidya (besides "I have a job that lets me play vidya games all day long"), and are a prime example of blogging faggotry from /r9k/ crossboarders.
>>269190220 Did you not read the part about him being in an "open relationship" with his wife? They both tried to be unfaithful to each other, at which point he couldn't get any tail while she had no trouble getting as much dick as she wanted. He then realises how stupid this idea was, but now his wife has realised she can do better and leaves him.
A wife may be a drain on your money, but as long as she isn't a super bitch it's at least guaranteed pussy on a frequent basis. Now he has neither.
At first I just think this is a joke but then I actually start to ponder burch in my mind.
>His failed marriage that he allowed to go down the drain >Being to much of a pussy to get his woman in line >LITERALLY Being the exact parallel to a main character in one of those shitty NTR doujins. >His way more successful sister that he's obviously jealous of. >Convincing himself he's bi to justify his wife being a whore >Being the laughing stock of /v/ >again, BEING THE LAUGHING STOCK OF /v/ >A-At least I'm a game dev nerds!
My god It's the most misery someone can go through where at the same time they can't really grow from it. It's like the opening shot to the American version of house of cards with the dieing dog. There's two types of pain, the kind that makes you stronger and the worthless kind that only causes suffering. Burch is in the second kind. He is a dog that's been ran over and needs to be put down.
>>269182332 This. Here's a fun idea; try to be like your favourite vidya character. Like Naked Snake? Become an outdoorsman, learn how to camp and cook and do some martial arts to keep fit. Like Dante? Take up some extreme sports, go to some gigs and parties, teach yourself how to be a witty smartass. Like Ezio? Take up rock climbing and parkour. Go fucking explore. And if you can't do any of that, just do something. Just appreciate what's in front of you, even if it's something as small as a tasty meal, or a person politely letting you go first when you get on the bus, anything.
