  1. Let's Play Blades of Avernum!

    I'd never heard Niemand's version! I have the other two bookmarked, along with the greatest thing to ever come from the BoA community.
  2. If you have any states that call other town states, it might be worth having them call scenario states instead. Might be able to squeeze a few more out that way.
  3. The Terrible Thesaurus Game

    That was my first guess for that one too, but then I considered what I knew about Diki, and how likely it'd be that they'd go with a gaming reference. Unfortunately, I am dumb, and didn't submit answers.
  4. About checking the current tick

    I used day/night cycles in TV, so I went back and looked at my code. There's a bit more going on in the script (twilight.txt if you wanted to take a look), but here's the stuff that should let you track whether it's day or night. Setting a flag lets you track it scenario-wide, of course. ticks = (get_current_tick() % 5000); if((ticks > 3750) || (ticks < 250)) { //time = night set_flag(250,0,1); } else { //time = day set_flag(250,0,0); } I remember starting the day at 250 because that's when it's fully light, I guess that makes Ephesos right.
  5. People never accept that I love dogs and cats equally, and now this survey has done the same.
  6. Windows 3D Editor

    Thanks, but I've already looked with the Wayback Machine (as did Ess-Eschas, if you go back and read their post), and I've spoken to Tridash directly. The two versions of the editor in your linked post (http://spiderwebforums.ipbhost.com/index.php?/topic/16333-new-windows-3d-editor/#comment-214652) both only offer minor changes to the original 3D editor which Ess-Eschas linked to, too.
  7. Windows 3D Editor

    Brilliant, thank you.
  8. Does anybody have, or have a link for, the Windows 3D editor? The link to Tridash's editor in the forum header is broken, and I can only seem to find Isaac's editor for Mac. Literally any version of any 3D editor will be fine - I just can't bear drawing terrain in 2D. Thanks in advance.

  10. Spiderweb Games able to run on Win 10 64 Bit

    Can confirm. I've played BoA on my Windows 10 computer in the past week. I've also played the original Nethergate, which leads me to assume that only the Exile games will have difficulty running.
  11. What have you been reading recently?

    I finished The Intended. It didn't suck as much as I feared. I read Marrow which is a bad book that I read because a cute girl gave it me to read. I read some of Amy Gerstler's poetry (Dearest Creature) and it was super good and fun and inspiring. I read Moderato Cantabile again because it is perfect and I wish to hold it inside of me forever. I just started reading a new translation of The Stranger (interestingly called The Outsider) and comparing it to my favourite translation.
  12. Let's Play Blades of Avernum!

    Oh no. I think I made a mistake. You should play Three Twenty-Three. That's my Warrior's Grove scenario. You should skip Phew For a Minute, because that's the one which is just Radiohead lyrics. ... This is the problem when literally all of your work can be finished within an hour.
  13. What have you been reading recently?

    So far this year I've read: Child of God. It was a wonderful holiday read, full of cheer, goodwill, and succinct, biting, and elegant writing. The Princess Saves Herself In This One, which was honestly not that good, and only really worth it if you want to see how not to write poetry. I had to pretend I liked it because it was a gift. And that's sad, because the subject matter was good. It was just tumblr-level poetry. Which is to say, MY level of poetry. We which I've been meaning to read for a while, on Nayld's recommendation, and which was absolutely worth the two hours it took to get through. If I had one complaint, it was that 1984 and Brave New World ruined it for me, but it's brilliant to see the seeds that it planted in Orwell and Huxley, and the breakdown of logic in the face of humanity was probably better handled here than in either of the other two books mentioned. I also started The Intended, but I'm probably not going to finish that because it sucks
  14. Let's Play Blades of Avernum!

    Just a quick one - skip Three Twenty Three. It isn't an actual scenario. Also, a couple of my scenarios will trash your party (KH and El Presidente and maybe OoS I can't remember?). Just something to be aware of.
  15. "Hugemassive", "Bob", and Spidweb

    I have come across the term 'hugemassive' before, but only colloquially, and only to mean, well, huge massive - and never in reference to Spiderweb. 'Bob', meanwhile, is something I only associate with the SW/Blades community, and I've never heard of it outside of here.
