I like to learn about things in my free time and thought it would be nice to have a thread where we can talk about what we are learning, share resources and ask questions!

>>236 i used to read pomology (the study of fruits) and food science textbooks as a hobby. both fields are surprisingly comfy. here is a book about taking care of an apple tree: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/26132/26132-h/26132-h.htm
>>236 What should a collage dropout prioritize learning to be able to secure any halfway decent job? This may be a kind of a lifestyle question, as I need some help gettinf back on my feet.
>>731 Very /comfy/ book, Friend! Thanks for the /kind/ness.
>>749 Learn a skill that other people would be willing to pay money for. Pick whatever there's a need for in your area and that you also find enjoyable to some degree. You don't need to love the particular skill, but not hating it is preferable.
>>749 Sysadmin and a Cisco cert. Or some other IT or tech job. Not many discriminate in the tech field for a lack of a degree. "halfway decent job" implies you aren't content just being a freeter and want some level of career progression too, which tech definitely has. But otherwise just look at what's in your area specifically as the other anon mentioned. Note my advice is worth nothing as I am a NEET.

how do i do 3d on a 2d game engine exactly? just rotate the lines to converge in one or something?
Why use a 2D engine? Since you posted an image of webgl, your graphics card can't actually do 3D. It's all an illusion created with math. But if you want to do that then you need access to everything and can't use a "2D engine" like for example Game Maker.
>>501 webgl is 3d just like all other 3d...isnt it?
>>497 does the 2d game engine provide support for isometric graphics? that would be the easiest way. otherwise, you will have to define a 3d coordinate system that the 2d game engine can use. the code for this is actually very simple, just declare a class (or a "struct" in c): struct point_3d { double x; double y; double z; } ... see? but the problem with this approach is that you might have to do a lot of work adapting the 2d game engine's native functions or methods to work in 3d. so i would agree with mister >>501-san.
>>536 >webgl is 3d just like all other 3d...isnt it? Yes, it is. OpenGL is very definitely a full-3D environment. BTW, unless you explicitly need browser access, why webGL Anon?

>>742 Try exercising whenever you feel the rage surge up. You can also try filming yourself whenever you get a rage fit and later look at the video and see how stupid you look and consider changing your ways. Maybe this video helps: https://invidiou.site/watch?v=ea7Spty3XZs
>>740 I do notice that as well. I generally fly into fits based on the current emotion I'm feeling. Like if I'm annoyed by something and that takes over, I'm annoyed at everything. Sometimes I'll be frustrated at something and it boils over like >>742 . It's not fun sadly, and it's hard to find someone who can actually help with it.
I'm so unbelievably pissed off right now and I did it to myself. I'm on the verge of snapping, but I'm too far in to stop what I'm doing. It's also super fucking hot. Goddamn I need to blow off some steam.
I don't rage and destroy things anymore but I might still benefit from setting up a sort of "rage room" as they're called, or destroying things with my leisure time. It can be cathartic. Maybe some of you could benefit from this idea of "controlled demolition." Control your anger, but at the same time, fuck some shit up and feel better after.
Man. I'm practically turning into the house maid. My family refuses to clean up after themselves and their pets. They leave their garbage everywhere, don't rinse their dishes, and they absolutely never clean their bathroom messes. Worst thing is, there's almost always someone in the living room or kitchen, so I never have a good time to clean, and by the time I do, everything is disgusting. It's a shame because the house is nice, but it looks like a big family of lazy neighbors lives here. If for no other reason, this makes me want to move out. That's a whole issue on it's own though.

looking books that talks about making system like this specifically https://youtu.be/8c264xk15o4 [Open] or something liek sega arcade stuffs (power drift, space harrier, air rescue, aqua jack so on etc) especially the physics model and how stuff sticks and not fall thru the floors despite the gaps between things and maybe lack of polygon meshes? perhaps the behind the scene/making of logic... hopefully includes several model/solutions of troubleshooting the same thing of why and whynots Thank you!

>>702 https://archive.org/details/BlackArt3DEBook/mode/2up this is the most comprehensive book on the topic i could find that is available for free. it covers vectors, raster graphics, voxels, various pseudo-3d techniques, and lots of other stuff. enjoy! as for your physics problem, i believe most 3d games implement 3d collision maps to prevent objects from falling under the ground. here is a nice tutorial for creating a 2d collision map: https://jonathanwhiting.com/tutorial/collision/

>>723 aw man, thats fancy.. thanks! never saw that book. seems v comprehensive... gon check it first ,>collission map as for this, so i guess it is actually 3d huh? despite not showing any polygon... i thought therell be some lower, hackabout way to do 3d without polygon.....
It looks like the video uses loads of 2D sprites that always face the camera and polygonal collision boxes.
>>753 that i know. but the physics solution not very visible

Manga Friend 06/13/2021 (Sun) 08:46:07 No.285 [Reply]
Manga's pretty cool, so lets talk about stuff we enjoyed or stuff we're reading. Feel free to post nice panels, pages, and spreads too. LNs are welcome too, I guess. I'm reading Akagi right now. I think the art style is pretty interesting. It's kind of entertaining seeing characters flip out about stuff that means absolutely nothing to me. It's like being dropped in some foreign land with absolutely no idea of the culture and customs of the area. It's a bit novel. I haven't read all that much manga, honestly, so any recommendations are welcome.

Since i discovered tachiyomi years ago i don't watch anime anymore, since you can read at your own pace, that being usually much faster than watching the anime adaptations. Lately i read Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou which is a very kind and comfy manga indeed. It has a cool fanpage called alpha.cafe, which is were i found out about it. I like the misago alot.
Junji Ito is the only mango author I've read. I plan on getting physical copies of his work at some point.
>>667 spooky... I stumbled on his stuff in 2018 and had to really pace myself to stop me from dropping all responsibilities and locking myself in to read his comics

self improvement Friend 06/13/2021 (Sun) 20:35:56 No.330 [Reply]

>>692 Fuck self improvement, I just like running. Self improvement is good. People that say otherwise are lazy, like myself, but need to justify it.
>>693 I'm not so sure I believe in "lazy." I believe in demotivation. And demotivation is a nasty disease that saddens me when good people have it. Sometimes we need to really dig deep to figure out what is bothering us, and once we do, and once we try to start fighting that, we can shed our hopelessness and begin to want things that are good for ourselves again. Take what's bringing you down and give it a nice big "fuck you" and do the opposite of what it tells you to do just to spite it.
>>330 the way I stayed quit is I intend to smoke cigarettes in the afterlife. Silly? Yes, but it helps with my frequent craving for nicotene.
>>694 Well, I'm a competitive person, you see. I used to do good work and all that, but now I don't have anyone to compete with. It's not fun to compete with strangers, and the people I do know are pretty meh. They don't seem to care about anything, so they're too easy for me to surpass. So I suppose you're right. It's just not easy to find someone to compete with, now that I am a neet.
>>696 Why don't you try competing with yourself? Become your worst critic and your greatest rival.
