Feb. 24, 21: VR Tutorials, Game Design, Oculus, TV, and Games


Up pretty early again this morning, just about four thirty, but only an hour short on sleep. Really worked hard mentally today and got a little worn out in the afternoon.

Not a whole lot going on during the usual morning routine. Cryptos still down, relatively speaking. Quite a lot of volume continuing but it’s starting to decline and we’re more or less sideways (at least not pushing lower lows for the time being).

Otherwise got some chores done, watched a little YouTube, hit the faucet, the normal. Spent some more time watching Unity tutorials and trying to figure out how to call JavaScript from C#...Unity uses C# and Hive uses JS or Python. Would love to have a dev to hand that problem to!

Spent most of the morning (other than doing my post for the day) getting together a notebook, sitting down, and writing as much down of what I’ve been thinking the past three or four days that I can remember. Tried to start organizing the thoughts and split them out into categories rather than just jumbling together business with game with programming with blockchain...

I got most of it down, I think. Still some more ideas floating around, but it’s starting to slow down a bit. Getting to the point now where instead of seeing all the possibilities I start to see all the barriers and potential issues. All part of the process, have to be skeptical towards your own ideas, but getting all caught up in the negatives is not my favorite part.

It did feel good to actually put it on paper and start to see things clearer and be able to describe or explain to someone else. Felt like I actually did something, even though I still haven’t pressed that scary power key on the computer. 🤭 One major advancement was, I think, I came up with a game-over goal (kind of essential for a game)... I’m still ironing out the details of that, though.

There’s a constant struggle not to just copy or be too much like other games in the same genre; would be dead on arrival if people see at as just a knock-off something else with blockchain thrown in...might even step on some copyright toes. So far I think it’s diverging, if not drawing some inspiration from what has come before (don’t need to exist in a complete vacuum).

The game design is actually evolving now and I’m starting to see all kinds of amazing player strategies and counters...a little hint of Chess in there. 🤓🥰

In the afternoon I dragged a bit, but made it without crashing. Jacked in for a while and played a few rounds of Beat Saber. I actually cleared my first song on Expert+, like for real, not slowed down or anything!!! 💪

Made myself some wraps with leftover steak and veggies for dinner and then did a ton of laps to make up the nearly four thousand steps I had left for the day. 🙀 Got them done, though to keep the streak alive and went a bit past for good measure. Fitbit is still insisting on not counting four days worth of the streak...not sure if they’re defining a streak starting after for days or if there was some glitch resulting from an update or something. I have a feeling it’s the latter. Bugs me that my count and the photo proof don’t agree, though...struggling with whether to give up and concede the four days or what.

After Wenche got off work we watched the last episode of My Dead Ex, sad there was only one season, and then hunted around for something, anything really to watch. I can’t remember what she ended up settling on, fell asleep not long after.

Yesterday it was the Bank, today it’s the Shopping Mall. Whatever, just whatever. I also got “lucky” and had a criminal spawn which knocked out a couple additional buildings. 🤬


Back to being below 100 SIM on the regular. Not too happy about it, but I guess they need to manipulate the token price.


I had been doing well on Holybread, but today was a rough one. Couldn’t get the arena wins I needed to complete my tasks. 😢


Not only did I not get my tasks done, I got knocked out of the top ten! 😡😭 Only lost one spot, but so far I haven’t been able to get it back.



No news, as usual, on CryptoBrewmaster. Pretty much check it once a day when I do my post and that’s about it. Really wish they’d turn off the rediculous clicking they’ve added...you can mute it, but you have to keep muting it every time you reload the page; it does nothing other than to make navigation annoying.


Oi! Only two days left in this Splinterlands season and I still didn’t play any more! 😯 Tomorrow will only be one day left and I know how much it sucks to play then, so today is pretty much my last chance. We’ll see.
