    KING OF THE DIRTY DANS reacted to DaJakerBoss in Is wearing over ear headphones bad in public?   
    I mean, I'm partial because I myself wear OtE headphones in public but only because that's all that I have. You don't look like an antisocial douche more than anyone else, but if you're in a place where conversation could be had (e.g. a classroom in the morning, at a table in a restaurant waiting for a server, walking up to a counter to order things) it's a good idea to drop the headphones to your shoulders and be aware. The headphones don't make you look like an antisocial douche, your body language and responses do, so don't worry

    KING OF THE DIRTY DANS reacted to fpo in Looking to make my own game, but unsure about my options   
    Game dev experience:
    1. Take a look at what you can do. Set the scope for a timeframe (HAVE A DEADLINE) knowing what you CAN do.
    2. Don’t do things you cannot do because you’ll miss your deadline & become overwhelmed with tasks. 
    3. NEVER increase the scope of your project. Every project ALWays Has its scope reduced. 
     
    You can try to find teammates online but it’s very difficult. Many people talk a big game & show promise & 3 days later they won’t respond to anything you ask them. They’ve gone to play video games. 
    I’m lucky. I joined an overambitious project & basically jacked the best guys to form our own team. Management didn’t have any skill. 
     
    Not or racial profiling but... racially profile people when considering them for your team. Trust me. Some cultures don’t mix. 
     
    Working on your own is super hard for big projects. Set a work schedule because 3D games basically require you to be employed to make headway. 
     
    KISS. Keep it stupid simple. Small scope, use simple API. Don’t go for “super fast technologies with advance control.” You don’t need it. They’ll be hell to figure out. Everyone has an idea for this super cool super advanced game but... only simple games exist. 
     
    Watch 3klicksphilips videos on game dev journey. May be on his 2klicksphilip channel. He has a lot of insite & a lot of wise advice.

    Well, just go make an indie game. Unlike opening a bussiness, coding a game doesn't require multimillion dollar investments. The creator of flappy bird literally coded that game in three days and that thing was generating tens of thousands of dollars in ad revenue per day at its peak. 
     
    My favorite game is Geneforge series which is developed by a team of husband and wife only. It beats every triple A titles I played so far.

    I honestly wouldn't be worried some of the best indie games out there look about as good as a potato. AAA is a different game because everyone expects nothing but the best for visuals but indie games haven't dug them selves into that hole yet lol. I would just take the iterative approach and make super basic assets then move onto to making it look better. Especially when you're prototyping. I try to keep my modeling time for a prototype down to about 5-10 minutes ( sometimes way less) per model so that I am not wasting time for something that I will scrap later. And even the next model after that I will spend slightly more time but not a ton of time because it will most likely hit the archive soon or later.

    Creating basic assets using free DCC applications such as gimp and blender is pretty easy to do. There also plenty of tutorials available.  So with that said I would focus on creating a fun game with simple assets made by your self and then move onto assets that created by someone who does it professionally. Make sure your game mechanics/simulation are fun and interesting above all else. You could make AAA visuals but if it plays like shit then ultimately it is a shit game. If you have a game that is exceptionally fun and plays well with mediocre graphics then you're still better off then a game that plays okay with slightly better graphics. And forget about creating a game that has close to AAA visuals as that's a hundreds of thousands ( or more) man hours which means 10's of millions of dollars or even hundreds of millions.
     
    Personally I like to procedurally generate as much artwork as possible (terrain, buildings, characters, etc) as possible since I can make something once and then have it make numerous variations and permutations of it to cut down on work and creates a large variety of assets to use. 
     
    As far as bringing someone on board to do the artwork just remember you get what you pay for. Also no one who is worth bringing on board will work for purely revenue share. It either has to be straight cash or cash + equity/shares, no one works for free or the promise of pay that is competent at what they do.

    KING OF THE DIRTY DANS reacted to tsmspace in Looking to begin soldering. What is a good starter iron for a complete beginner?   
    You're going to try to self educate, so expect to spend a little more than someone who already knows what they are doing, and will buy everything they need. 
     
    Having said this,, why not just start with the cheapest soldering iron you can find that arrives quickly,, then buy a toy kit to put together, that doesn't matter if you goof it up?? You can buy something that blinks lights or squeals, (just buy a few little kits), and has nice big pads,, so a cheap soldering iron won't be a problem putting it together, and you've only invested a few dollars. 
     
    You will hear that solder has flux in it already,, which is true,, but you MUST buy some flux if you want to skip a lot of hard days. it's expensive, raises the ticket a lot, but is the best thing you can start to learn about early. 
     
    Once you've started making solder melt with a cheap iron, you might spend some time thinking expensive irons are a waste of money,,,, they're not. However, knowing which expensive iron will meet your needs takes experience, and if you buy a nice iron right away, you will clumsily corrode tips, and won't be able to produce the quality of work that justifies it anyway. 
     
    If you were going to buy ANYTHING that's pretty affordable, and you know nothing about, you should expect to need to buy several to get the one that works well for you,,, if you're serious about learning to solder, do the same. Go to walmart, and buy what they have there. Sure, you will want to pick a nice iron sooner than later, but if you just go to walmart and buy their solder and iron, you can start practicing , and you can right away start getting closer to useful competency. That doesn't mean don't buy a good iron from amazon,, like a ts100, which most drone pilots swear by,, but don't let people shy you away from the iron at walmart. it gets hot, melts solder, and costs basically nothing. your first try won't go well no matter what you do. (of course, with soldering, your first try WILL make a joint, and work, but there's a lot that ends up mattering over time).

    KING OF THE DIRTY DANS reacted to Beskamir in Parents Don't Like Phones At Schools   
    It should be up to the student to decide if they want their phone to be a distraction or a helpful tool. Being able to quickly google something can be better than stopping the entire class to ask a trivial or off topic question so even though most people would prefer to distract themselves with their phones I think we shouldn't punish those that would use their phone to aid their learning.

    Just make sure your streaming at 30fps. If you try do it at 60fps it will be very slow and slow up your game.  Also output should be 1080p no matter what your in game resolution is.
