i donโ€™t know who needs to hear this but please stop saying waifu

Had some real weird dreams I just woke up from. One involved dating someone my brain made up that then shifted to a job I don't have. The other involved my actual GF and ended with us snuggling on a couch at my parents' house. Now I have a headache and I'm going back to sleep x-X

So that whole Tux vs. Xenia debate over the Linux Mascot title got me thinking

I like Xenia as a character but she's not exactly mascot-y. Mascots should be distinct in silhouette and have a logo-able design.

So I decided to try making a Xenia logo! 3 different kinds, in fact!

The pH scale is weird, why not just make it ยฑ7 or something.

Hey remember that time where a friend told everyone else we were dating when we weren't and I didn't find out until much later? Yeah that's a memory.

In a furry world there'd be a lot of statues with the tail broken off.

protestors put up a guillotine in front of Jeff Bezosโ€™ mansion holy shit

Anyone know an artist I could get a short spoilery Warframe comic from?

Been playing Aven Colony and it's a lot better than Surviving Mars but there's some weird gameplay choices. Like, a trade hub can only do one trade at a time? Why?

I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ve posted photos of the punk pants Iโ€™ve been working on, ch-check it out

hey who wants to head out and make a crop circle that looks like aliens did it until someone checks it out with a helicopter and it says ACAB

We have short vs tall and short vs long. I think we need to replace short with something else for one of those.

But I'm still expecting that it's going to be a waste of my time.

Why are there no signs showing what the three legs of antennas are?! Oh wait navigation sucks here too. There's no style to it. The interfaces suck.

There's some sort of story, which is definitely the only reason I'd consider playing it any more.

Scanning is dumb. Polarization doesn't work like that. Why do you not find the frequency before the polarization? Why can't to see the power level while aligning the antenna? Why is that not *the first thing you do*? Why is calibration a PITA? Why does the cart absolutely suck?

So I played it more. It's a bunch of "gameplay elements to make it not totally easy". But I think it'd be a much better game if what you did in game was more realistic. I again point to Firewatch. There the only really annoying part was navigation. Here, it's everything else.

Even with the in-game tutorial I'm struggling to figure out the game flow. The fact that it doesn't teach you as you go along other than by tutorial pop-ups does not provide for engaging game-play, and the 70s/modern tech mix is just weird.

Show thread

Work with someone to make it more realistic (not visually, environment design wise) and it'd be something I'd really get into. I'm literally like 10 minutes into it right now and just seeing the slog ahead of me and not being super into it.

Started playing Signal Simulator.

It's one of *those* sim games.

But, TBH? I think something like this with the "just enjoying doing a side gig" feel akin to Firewatch, exploring the surrounding area, putting effort into maintaining the systems, etc would be a fantastic game.
