[09:15:33] <Aria> Hi
[09:18:25] <Bronz|work> Hello.
[09:25:11] <Aria> How are you!
[10:00:44] <Bronz|work> Good.
[10:01:12] <Bronz|work> some people from work wanna go to a restaurant, November 25th
[10:01:20] <Bronz|work> "The Church", in the centre of Dublin.
[10:01:51] <Aria> Nov 25? But that is not Sinterklaas
[10:02:28] <Bronz|work> It's for Christmas
[10:02:34] <Bronz|work> But y'know, everyone's leaving on actual Christmas
[10:04:12] <Bronz|work> Anyway, you're invited
[10:04:15] <Bronz|work> Like, super invited
[10:04:25] <Aria> Super invited?
[10:17:47] <Bronz|work> Yup, they would really like for you to join 'em.
[10:18:54] <Aria> So I'm watching this guy make a model and bring it into UE4
[10:19:00] <Aria> So the end result is meant to be game ready
[10:19:12] <Aria> But its 1 thin 1m tall pillar and its 70k verts
[10:20:35] <Bronz|work> That's a lot of verts.
[10:20:48] <Bronz|work> Also, it's square?
[10:21:05] <Aria> Well no, it has some fancy engravings on it
[10:21:28] <Aria> They're too extreme to do with a normal, but I mean, tesselation or something man
[10:21:51] <Aria> Or rather, model it with like 6 verts per curve, instead of 600
[10:23:45] <Aria> A bunch of like, game industry people are following me on twitter, and I don't know why?
[10:23:51] <Aria> I mean, when I say a bunch, I mean like 10
[10:24:13] <Aria> But still, 10 people more than half a year ago, and I haven't exactly tweeted anything worthwhile
[10:28:46] <Bronz|work> I bet it's all based on one random tweet.
[10:28:55] <Bronz|work> Or someone is messing with you?
[10:30:37] <Aria> Maybe it's based on the people I follow?
[10:33:09] <Bronz|work> Maybe
[10:35:36] -!- Apsup [Apsup!Apsup@hide-C3A41BC5.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[10:36:27] <Bronz|work> Hi Apsup.
[10:36:37] <Aria> Hello
[10:37:58] <Apsup> Hii
[10:38:15] <Aria> Have you played Persona 5 or SMT #FE?
[10:39:30] <Apsup> Persona 5 is not out yet on places where it matters aand hashtag FE is for console I don't have.
[10:39:51] <Aria> Wait you don't have a WiiU?
[10:40:02] <Apsup> No, I don't have WiiUU
[10:40:09] <Aria> Also it's supposed to be sharp, not hashtag
[10:40:11] <Bronz|work> You should get a WiiUUU
[10:40:20] <Aria> What do you do for entertainment?
[10:41:51] <Apsup> Play on PC/PS4.
[10:42:04] <Aria> But you also didn't have a PC and PS4 has no games
[10:42:37] <Aria> Except for Dragon Quest builders I guess
[10:43:16] <Bronz|work> #bestgameever
[10:45:38] <Aria> Ok so I brought it up because I was wondering if they had collison on their ghost people
[10:46:11] <Aria> And yes, yes they do have collision on their ghost people in #FE. No, they do not have collision on their corporial people in P5
[10:47:39] <Bronz|work> Oh ok.
[10:47:53] <Aria> Isn't that strange?
[10:50:24] <Bronz|work> A little
[11:17:22] <Aria> Hey Apsup, I'm considering changing the art style of my thing to be all furries
[11:18:15] <Aria> But it's problematic, because it'll be interpreted as all the characters being different races rather than an art style choice
[11:18:47] <Aria> What do you think?
[11:21:48] <Bronz|work> You were planning to do faceless NPCs, right?
[11:22:02] <Aria> Aha?
[11:22:10] <Aria> #FE ghosts
[11:25:30] <Aria> Were you going to ask if doing furries affects that? It shouldn't. I mean, it would be noticable if every NPC was a cat or whatever
[11:25:38] <Aria> So I'll have to make like 10 NPC ghosts
[11:26:10] <Aria> But just 10, as opposed to one for every NPC/having to figure out some sort of dynamic character system like real games do
[12:24:27] <Aria> I need better rope tools
[13:01:40] <Bronz|work> It got real busy all of a sudden.
[13:01:47] <Bronz|work> Well, was busy for a bit.
[13:01:55] <Aria> But is unbusy now?
[13:11:05] <Bronz|work> Still busy
[13:19:09] <Bronz|work> Friday, Dec 2, 21.30, wanna have dinner with the crew?
[13:19:15] <Bronz|work> Work people?
[13:19:38] <Aria> We aren't in the country at that point
[13:19:51] <Bronz|work> On Friday? I think I still work that day.
[13:20:01] <Bronz|work> Lemmie check
[13:20:24] <Bronz|work> Yes, we leave Saterday.
[13:21:02] <Bronz|work> So are you ok with going?
[13:21:45] <Aria> I mean... I don't want to
[13:22:34] <Bronz|work> Ok, we'll not go.
[13:22:53] <Aria> You can of course go
[13:23:11] <Bronz|work> Nah.
[13:23:27] <Bronz|work> Hello from Therese, btw.
[13:23:32] <Bronz|work> She asked me to send this to you.
[13:23:53] <Bronz|work> Wanna have Therese over tomorrow, btw?
[13:24:37] <Aria> Sure
[13:26:22] <Bronz|work> Ok, she is then.
[13:29:18] <Bronz|work> Speaking of planes, maybe I should print our tickets here.
[13:29:24] <Aria> Yes
[13:37:36] <Bronz|work> "Room is still open if you change your mind"
[13:37:40] <Bronz|work> Yeah, but no.
[14:19:23] <Aria> I'm listening to this talk about cheaters for Day Z and its pretty interesting
[14:26:32] <Bronz|work> I can imagine. Any tidbits you can share here easily?
[14:28:03] <Aria> No.. It's all pretty large topics
[14:28:23] <Bronz|work> Ok, fair enough
[14:28:29] <Aria> Well the technical stuff is
[14:28:41] <Aria> But also a lot of the talk is about how to find cheat makers
[14:29:12] <Aria> Which is cool, they hire actors, create cheats for them, make them tutor in cheating forums
[14:29:31] <Aria> So that the current cheat makers try to connect with them
[14:33:00] <Bronz|work> Oh wow, really?
[14:33:12] <Bronz|work> But if he tells the world, won't known cheaters become suspicious?
[14:33:24] <Aria> I assume these are old tactics
[14:33:41] <Aria> He kept explaining how they were super suspicous constatly, so they already knew
[14:33:55] <Aria> But also, just buying cheats is hard, which hurts their business, so it's good for Day Z
[14:34:18] <Bronz|work> Hmm.
[14:34:21] <Bronz|work> that's cool
[14:36:25] <Aria> You need to be a native Russian speaker, you need to have a facebook account with friends and it needs to pass their sniff test, they want a copy of your citizen card
[14:37:15] <Aria> Also the cheaters have double agents who pretend to be snitches, but are actually trying to mislead
[14:42:32] <Bronz|work> It sounds like a super stupid eve online story
[14:42:45] <Aria> =D
[15:16:33] <Aria> ...It's 3?
[15:16:36] <Aria> I thought it was 5!
[15:16:44] <Aria> Oh noes!
[15:23:18] <Bronz|work> =(
[15:40:57] <Apsup> It's 5 for me.
[15:41:11] <Apsup> Or was. Closer to 6 now.
[15:41:59] <Aria> So I'm making this lady's armor
[15:42:03] <Aria> Or that's not a problem
[15:42:12] <Aria> But I'm making her helmet, but I haven't made a head yet
[15:42:29] <Aria> So I'm afraid later when I go to make a head, the helmet is gonna be way too thin
[15:44:23] <Apsup> Make head first then.
[15:44:36] <Aria> Faces require a lot of design
[15:44:42] <Aria> Helmets are easier
[15:45:01] <Apsup> You can make an approksimation of head without details.
[15:45:21] <Aria> I do
[15:45:30] <Aria> It's just not unique to this character, or very good
[17:00:08] <Bronz|work> Ok, cya later
[17:00:15] <Aria> Bye
[17:10:41] <Aria> hey Apsup
[17:10:47] <Aria> What do I do with this armor?
[17:10:55] <Apsup> wear it?
[17:11:19] <Aria> Oh its not real armor
[17:11:21] <Aria> Im drawing it
[17:11:29] <Aria> In blender http://i.imgur.com
[20:07:25] <Aria> That new Call of Duty is out
[20:08:28] <Aria> So from now on it'll be lots of "Get down soldier!" "FAT32 those tangos soldier!"
[20:09:05] <Aria> Also Mirrors Edge 2 had a pretty small team. About 30 people
[20:09:36] <Aria> It's not that small compared to all video games, but it's small compared to Dice and compared to the level of quality
[20:09:59] <Aria> Who was it who kept stressing their 40-man team was a skeleton crew?
[20:12:21] <Aria> Ah Bioshock 2
