Welp, it's time for another update.
Since I last left the stranded miners on Planet U, I somehow ended up on the LOMN restoration project team started by The Beaverhouse streaming group on Discord.
It's been an incredible experience working on the lost Bionicle game every fan has dreamed of getting their hands on.
To all of the Bionicle fans that read this, the work we've dedicated to this game is for you.
Returning to Planet U, I can't really discuss
it has come to my knowledge how much galidor has been spoken of lately and I decided to pop in to see what all of it was about and holy cr*p, I have something to share with y'all.
a little while back on the solekian discord (which is a server full of chumps from bzpower and the likes where we praise solek and make memes - silly I know), we had a discussion about galidor and some guy said this:
I was like "oh my, is that last part true?" and suddenly
Sleep is hard. Body does not want to sleep. Brain wants to sleep. Brain tends to lose.
Hi! I'm [still] Jaina, [still] queer as hell, [still] messed up in the head [but slightly better than before], [still] obsessed with LEGO stuff. Especially that which was around during my early childhood.
Hey, it's been a while since I was around here. I dropped out of RIT. Game Design, while still a huge passion of mine, is no longer something I can pursue. I simply cannot retain ANY u
Last Friday i made a special avatar for myself inspired by the jackbox party pack game Monster Seeking Monster.
And over the next few days i have been making allot of avatars for other people, so i decided to showcase all of the ones i made so far.
Hope you enjoyed these and if you want one for yourself, go ahead and PM me.
I haven't made much progress since my last entry, to be honest. Most of what I've done is make a few minor cfg adjustments basically.
Adding DynamiteWakeRadius in has certainly made things very interesting, though. Glad I found this in Jessietail's config documentation.
Only thing major I did was a partial overhaul of the map Gephyrophobia. Yes, I'm using this map in my mod.
But my main reason for an update was to ask the community for some advice regarding maps
So I finally decided to make a blog.
When I first joined this site in October of last year, I was amazed to see all the modding that had been done to my favorite childhood game, Rock Raiders. I first tried out Baz's mod, and from there, ended up using Axel's mod almost exclusively. It felt like a brand new game, and gave me countless hours of enjoyment (and yes, frustration too).
Eventually, I became increasingly interested in making my own modifications to not only R
Surprise! It's an Irish folk song. Except it's got guns! This is probably my new favorite track of mine, even with all the repetitions (which by the way are very intentional). This track is like 80% stuff I've never used or tried before, so it's got a very fresh sound. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do!
I've never really followed the whole "New Years Resolution" thing before, but in getting older and running out the body clock, I've realised it might be good to start making some changes.
One thing I really want to achieve next year is one of my biggest failings from this year. I'm a software developer by day, and a gamer by night. Being drained through the day with professional-level coding has made me bitter and cynical towards my own projects, to the point I've stopped doing them. While I
... Imagine a computer game. More specifically, a real-time-strategy game.
But not with medieval knights. Not with spacemen. No, something far better - with both.
Both sides made out of Lego bricks.
Imagine starting with the classic AOE three minifigures...
Imagine harvesting Yellow bricks to build more minifigures....
Imagine harvesting Grey bricks to build weapons for those minifigures...
... and harvesting all sorts of bricks to sta
I haven't been streaming for a little while now since I have been playing Pokemon Ultra Moon the entire time. And a little League of Legends on the side. I'll attempt to stream in the next hour after this is posted. I will also get some new social media within the next hour and will post them on the following day. Do not be surprised if I look down constantly on stream as I will probably be distracted by Pokemon Ultra Moon
As promised, here's a single post containing some of my videos, from this summer onwards!
This is a TouHou style track I started two years ago right after finishing Champion Battle, but I remade it from scratch with my new composition style. Unlike other tracks inspired by the same source, this one is a full-fledged composition!
This one is a rather unusual track for my standards, being more focused on experimental atmosphere and ambience than anyt
I try to start streaming around 12-12:30pm Eastern US Time. I also stream at night starting around 9-10pm.
I only stream LEGO Racers for now. I will see if I can stream other games soon.
I've been gone from RRU for a while and it might be awkward for me to randomly pop in, but I feel the need to bring up what is probably the most irresponsible thing I've done here:
You may or may not have already noticed that my various image galleries are no longer around; this was the result of my own reckless behavior. Shortly after members' galleries became reaccessible, I abused a temporary feature which allowed me to delete all my gallery folders.
So, a few years back, I tried to make a Rock Raiders comic series (named "Rock Raiders know zilch", a title which was explained using the smallest Calvin & Hobbes strip available on the internet) in an attempt to one-up Arthuriel's excellent "Insane Raiders" series (which, due to my minimal sense of humour, didn't work well).
Considering the fact I've only made 2 blog posts about "Rock Raiders know zilch" so far, it's pretty clear that I haven't followed up on m
Here's the music I made for Halloween this year! It's a little late as the blogs weren't fully implemented back when I published this track, but better late than never I guess.
I will be rolling out a couple other tracks from this summer over here in a couple days to not overflow the blogs section.
As you may know, trying to quit LI1 via ESC crashes the game. But there is also ALT-F4, but it may not always save your stuff.
So how do you make sure it saves? Go to the Information Center, click the book and select your name again. Then press ALT-F4.
And bam, it should save your progress.
Hello, i have some more doodles i decided to put in here for your enjoyment.
Do excuse the quality of some of them, the pages of the sketchbook must have rubbed the drawings all over the papper as i carry them on my bag, causing some of the smears you see, also phone camera is pretty much garbage.
So....it's been awhile.
First off, to get expectations and hope out of the way, I want to say that no: I am no longer actively working on the Rock Raiders adaptation.
That does not mean it's dead.
Man, it kind of feels like this game is almost cursed when it comes to media related to it coming to fruition. All I seem to find is adaptations and remasters that die quiet deaths, and now my own project is stalled.
Now that the site is back
Huzzah! RRU is back (but not quite, but hey its back, yet not entirely).
So yeah, its nice to be back. I'm currently drafting a blog post containing most of the fun stuff I've made during RRU's absence, but I decided this little gem deserves it own blog (actually, I'm just posting it because that's one less thing to post for the next blog).
So tell me, fellow Rock Raider...
What is Rock?
Landslides don't hurt me...
...don't hurt me...
Hey, remember that daft Bionicle short I made literally a year ago to the day (only just realised it was so long ago whilst making this post, crikey)? Well, while RRU was down for repairs I had to do a short film for me Media Foundation course, so I went and made a seven minute long followup! Also one of them wears a suit. Yuuuuuup!
It's probably the most ambitious project I've done so far and I'd really love to do more stuff like this in the future, s' good t
