    yeah, i know it's been posted about over on steam and i've talked to red about the general issues with glass not showing other glass before, so i assume he knows about this too. something to do about there being checks for objects behind glass all the time that make it very expensive to have it show properly.

    *shakes fist at language barriers*


    ah no, in english it's called 'surface edit', but i didn't use that for this particular thing. what i did was just snap a bunch of cylinders to each other at an angle, in sequence, forming a semi-circle. it's the most time-consuming part of making letters, because there are various different turns in the path of the pipe. sometimes they need to be sharper, or wider, and it can be annoying to figure out how to re-make those specific curves each time.

    so i wanted to make a blueprint of each size/type of curve, so i could just put a single blueprint in instead of having to re-make the curves from scratch. but the problem is that once blueprinted, the cylinders no longer line up with the straight pipes i placed manually, so they just don't fit into the unfinished letter at all.

    i'm not sure if i understood that right, or if this is the same issue, but it does bother me when i go to place a blueprint and its 'center' seems to put the objects that make it up off-kilter with the rest of the world. i ran into this issue when i tried to make blueprints of curved pipe sections at various degrees, for making neon sign letters. at the most precise movement i could get them, they wouldn't line up with the straight parts of the letters, so i had to resort to making the curves from scratch every time.


    Ich bin mir nicht sicher, ob ich das richtig verstanden habe oder ob dies dasselbe Problem ist, aber es stört mich, wenn ich gehe, um eine Blaupause zu platzieren, und ihre „Mitte“ scheint die Objekte, aus denen sie besteht, aus dem Gleichgewicht zu bringen übrigen Welt. Ich bin auf dieses Problem gestoßen, als ich versuchte, Blaupausen von gekrümmten Rohrabschnitten in verschiedenen Graden zu erstellen, um Neonzeichenbuchstaben zu erstellen. Bei der präzisesten Bewegung, die ich bekommen konnte, würden sie nicht mit den geraden Teilen der Buchstaben übereinstimmen, also musste ich jedes Mal auf die Kurven von Grund auf zurückgreifen.

    i'm pretty sure 'postponed' just means they ran into some sort of difficulty and decided to work on things they knew they could get done faster instead, just for the moment, so they can get unity up to speed with java asap.

    some people here have shown themselves to have no respect for art, and it's taken a lot of the fun out of this for me, but i know that red51 would want me to enjoy his game, and there are people here who DO care, so this is for them.

    note that the glass of milk is a LITTLE buggy. if you place it and the milk doesn't show through, just destroy the container part of glass and then type 'undo' in the console to put it back. the milk inside will then be visible through it.

    the only way i can comprehend the anti-credit attitude i'm seeing here is that you yourselves are thieves and don't want to admit fault, so you're trying in vain to make it seem like it's okay. just like how cheaters are always 'oh everyone cheats sometimes tho' NO. WE DON'T. some of us have morals, and you could too. quit trying to shift the blame onto everyone else.

    really just completely baffling how many people are saying 'if you don't want people to steal from you, just don't have things they can steal' instead of the obviously morally correct option of 'yeah stealing is wrong and people shouldn't do that'. maybe it wouldn't be such a common problem if you people actually advocated against it and punished people/called people out for doing it instead of just being like 'eh, it happens. if you have feelings that can get hurt, you shouldn't participate in communities at all'. think about what kind of world you are fostering!

    fun story to go along with all this. i just discovered a blueprint artist on here that hasn't posted in a while, via the credit Mag gave them when she posted a screenshot that included something of theirs. impressed by the screenshot, and having a name to accredit the impressive work to, i then searched that user on these forums and found they made a TON of INCREDIBLE pieces that i can now enjoy and comment on.

    interestingly, i had actually already seen some of their work before; an eagle cut-out. it was on the side of a ship i downloaded from someone else. that someone did NOT credit dagoline in their post, so i thought they made the eagle themself. my husband and i complimented the wrong person, and the right person would never know how impressed we were if i hadn't found them through mag.


    i would not only have never seen all the other awesome work dagoline had done if not for mag crediting them, but they would never get the positive feedback from me if i thought someone else had made what they did. personally, that kind of feedback is crucial for my continued building and sharing. what's the point of art if not to have people see and enjoy it? how could i know my work means anything if nobody ever sees it and tells me they appreciate it?


    credit. matters.

    nope. well, not in the form of updates, anyway. developing one game is time consuming enough, red can't do both. java will remain as it was when the switch to unity began, forever, while unity will come to match and then surpass it in every way.


    red will probably still offer support in the form of talk assistance when people have difficulty with java, tho.

    Ich habe gesagt im Normalfall , ich hätte sagen sollen im Real Life führt das zu einem Copyright-Verfahren. Die Reaktionen finde ich schade, denn das bedeutet doch eigentlich, dass die Arbeit bzw. die Bauten von denjenigen die etwas teilen, nicht viel wert ist.

    yeah. if all my hard work isn't even worth the barest respect, why should i share it at all? i spend hours making something i think is skillful and beautiful, that people will enjoy, but if merely having my name mentioned when it's reposted is too much to expect in exchange, then clearly i'm unappreciated and wasting my time.

    that's an absolutely ridiculous comparison. there is a huge difference between basic materials/building blocks like individual lego bricks, paints, or food ingredients, and actual artwork such as a structure built from legos, an actual painting, or a food recipe. (not to mention, most people DO credit basic building blocks like legos, or the programs they use)


    by your logic, a casual art store's selection of paints are more valuable than the entire lourve. do none of the artists of the pieces in that gallery deserve recognition for their years of study and hard work? should i be allowed to take the mona lisa, slap some sunglasses on her, and say it's my own art?

    i haven't seen it happen, but i agree with you, deirde. it would be wrong to take someone's work, slightly change it, and then repost it as your own, or to make a blueprint of someone else's work in a multiplayer game and then claim it as your own to share it online.


    i think avanar and forscherdrang are missing the point about reposting. the point of sharing blueprints on here is indeed to be able to incorporate them into your own work, but that doesn't include sharing it again as your own blueprint, or taking credit by posting pictures of others' work without mentioning them at all. when i download blueprints from here, i use them to decorate my own, private world. that is how they bring me joy and i don't need to steal credit by posting pictures of them. if i incorporate them into my own work that i would like to share, i would give the artists their due credit in the description or comments of the post, because that is the minimum amount of respect they deserve for sharing their hard work with me in the first place.


    the disregard for artists' efforts and treating anything posted online as public property disgusts me, and as a professional artist, who tries to pay bills with my work, it makes me want to stop sharing anything i make online altogether (tho of course i'm not selling stuff i make in rising world, the feeling of betrayal and disgust is nevertheless the same. i may not be asking for payment, but i still expect basic respect). allowing people to view your work is not the same thing as giving them permission to take it and showcase it in their own gallery without credit as if they owned it, and just because someone shared a blueprint for others to use does not mean it's okay to erase their name off of it and write your own on top.


    every creator may feel differently about it, but at the end of the day, the one fact that should never be ignored is that the creator's feelings are the ones that matter when it comes what people can do with their creations. if an artist says people can do whatever they want with their work, then that's true for their work, but ONLY their work. if another artist says they don't want people reposting their work, then nobody should repost that particular artist's work. and since it isn't always clear what an artist's stance is, it's common sense/decency to assume the strictest policy. people these days don't treat artists with any respect because it's too easy to rip their work from the internet and do whatever you want without getting caught. but morality isn't just about avoiding legal repercussions. it's about being kind and considerate to others.


    permission to view =/= permission to use =/= permission to claim as your own by not providing credit when you share it


    art is a product and artists have rights.

    a cozy little house for snowy areas (or for adding to my snowglobe kit ;D). you have to crouch to enter, but can easily stand inside, and it even has room for a small base!

    my being bad at math and circles being based on an irrational number made this a bit of a challenge, but i'm pleased with the final result! also thanks to my husband TayohShadowind for helping me with the final bits when i started to burn out.

    personally i prefer the smoothed version, but it is harder to modify as it is made up of a lot more individual blocks, so i have also attached the original blueprint that is just the core of the build.

    you could also repaint the blocks for it to be a mudbrick house, and maybe add windows, if you want, tho that is tricky on the smooth version. skylight would be easy tho!
