I decided to make a video about mapping with bottom-end hardware. That video basically describes my everyday life, at least the part at night.

Some people might understand the message of my video, but whoever doesn't, just ask me :)


And this is also me testing Sven Co-op's big map support. After some time, I will hopefully release a giant map for Sven Co-op, which is (you guessed it) open-world.

And, no. Not in any way, am I complaining about my hardware.
For what I do, my laptop is sufficient and does the job.
It has terrible performance, but I got used to seeing 20fps, so I don't even care. (although, when I see 60fps, my brain gets a very pleasant, tickling feeling)

Here's what happens:
  • I start my laptop
  • Wait 30 minutes for it to boot up and load
  • Open J.A.C.K (cut from the video)
  • Wait for the map to compile
  • Map successfully compiles
  • I throw my phone on my bed

Also, if you don't want to see my face, don't watch the video all the way to the end.
And yes, the video was also rendered on my laptop :D
It took around 20 minutes, since it was a 480p video at 30fps.

Anyway, this is a perfect example of how the worst tools (my laptop) can still do the job :)

I hope to make a map development blog next time :D

    Of course it's innocent, because I'm a cutie pie =3
    (Meh, Jody is still cuter than me, but still)
    But, could you please explain how do you mean "innocent" in this case?
    Nah. What's the fun of sexual jokes if you have to explain them.

    Hmm, in Bosnian, "nevin" means "innocent". But as far as I've seen its use in sitcoms, it is also related to... virginity!? Wtf. I still don't understand some sexual jokes :/

    I should have some uses for that.

    That's so not true.
    The only theoretical use of a black hole, as far as I know, is using it as a "slingshot".
    Basically, we make a rocket which orbits aroubd the black hole, and uses it like a catapult or a slingshot to get out of its orbit. That way we can reach big speeds.

    Though, I doubt that mankind will build such a rocket by the time you and I are still alive :)
    Therefore, you don't have a use for a black hole.
    Too innocent. =^)

    That make me think of those great mappers who compile their high detailed maps back in 2002, or even earlier. 30-minute boot up is immense, even my old computer was loading faster. Maybe you should consider bying new laptop
    He stated in one of his previous blogs that he will get a better one.

    Not just a better laptop. I'll buy PC parts :D
    Man, that thing will crush my laptop to an atom (and then we'll make a black hole :P)
