      PasvSmkng Worst ever, of all time

      "Community" feels like it's bottom of the list by a big margin these days, especially since the website revamp.  The community section of the site has been relegated to basically an afterthought.  Video commenting is worse than it was before the switchover (and it was pretty bad before), you don't get notifications on the main site about community site related activity and it just feels like the guys have just given up on hosting their own community.  


      I mean if that's what they've done then fair enough I guess?  There are other places you can go for community stuff (like Reddit and Twitter and what have you), but if you've pulled the plug on the community section of your site then at least have the decency to tell us all that and just shut the thing down.  This feels like the community sections of the site have been shovelled off to the old folks' home to rot.

      Claire, the negligent girlfriend!  


      Oh well, I'm sure they'll kiss and make up later.

      Adding eyes makes a big difference, that's when these guys start feeling like actual characters.  


      I also added bootlaces but you can't see those so well.  Which is a shame because they're a bitch to draw.

      I totally redrew Zoey in a separate project on my iPad, because trying to add her to the existing one in Clip just wasn't working.  The Wacom's big surface area and non-glassy surface makes for a nicer drawing experience but the big size can work against you sometimes.  


      Obviously I've not done the eyes yet.  These guys always look really weird until the eyes go in.

      Oh no, that blue stick figure's coming for you!   


      There are a few minor tweaks on Claire but I'm currently mostly trying to figure out how the second character fits into this picture.

      Oh boy, did this take a crapton of attempts to get the basic pose right!  


      Still have a few issues with this one but I think I've finally got the basic pose down.  


      More updates as and when!

      I thought I might put a little lake in the grounds next to the halls so there'd be somewhere nice for students to hang out in their downtime.  I didn't want it to look artificial so I started just hacking a shape out at random.  Then I went up and took a look....


      1777695-1519767045071-2018-02-27_21.28.3


      I think I might have to reshape this.  


      That, or call it Lake Flaccid.

      I think I might be getting a bit carried away with this project...


      1777695-1518560269991-2018-02-13_21.55.1


      Dining room/cafeteria.  I discovered you can get a panel of carpet to apparently hover in mid-air if you place it on top of another carpet panel, so that's how I've made the table tops.  It did mean the dining room had to be carpeted though.  


      1777695-1518560342622-2018-02-13_22.03.2


      Counter.  Glass blocks are supposed to represent those glass things they put food behind in cafeterias.  The upside down steps are meant to be where you put your tray and slide it along.  Item frames are so useful!  (I originally just had random paintings up there)


      1777695-1518560404666-2018-02-13_22.06.2


      Cash register.  The pie is a lie. 


      1777695-1518560872426-2018-02-13_22.08.3


      Main reception lobby.  The two pairs of doors to the right of the desk are supposed to be elevators.  Obviously there aren't any actual elevators in Minecraft so it's actually just a shaft with a ladder in it.  The doors do all open when you press the button though!


      1777695-1518560460278-2018-02-13_22.08.4


      Pigeon holes for snail mail (Well item frames full of paper, but who's counting?)  Obviously the pigeon holes would be packed far more densely if this wasn't Minecraft but it gets the idea across at least.


      1777695-1518560460276-2018-02-13_22.10.4


      Payphone booths.  Even with item frames there's just not really anything that looks much like a phone to that'll have to do.  Maybe some student smashed the actual phones off the wall whilst on a drunken bender and just left a mass of wires where they used to be?  


      Oh well, this bunch of millennial hipster snowflake students are too busy candy crushing their iThings and crying about Brexit to know what a pay phone is for anyway (I'm kidding!).

      So as promised, here's a few screen grabs of how the dorms are coming along


      1777695-1517865044634-2018-02-05_20.46.1

      Halls as viewed from the front.  Obviously the left wing isn't done but given you have to build one block at a time I think it's pretty good progress!  


      The ground floor and centre section isn't built yet either because they're going to be public/communal/utility spaces and I haven't figured out where and what I need (Obviously I need a dining hall, laundrette, common room, etc, but there's bound to be other things I've not thought of and I haven't decided where they all should go yet)


      1777695-1517865187150-2018-02-05_20.46.2


      Main entrance.  The slabs leading to the left door are meant to be a wheelchair ramp


      1777695-1517865228482-2018-02-05_20.47.0


      Accommodation block corridor (This one is the first floor, for dorms 51-70).  The university policy for these halls is for female students to be allocated rooms on odd-numbered floors and male students get allocated rooms on even-numbered floors.  


      1777695-1517865368379-2018-02-05_20.47.2


      Typical dorm.  You can tell this one's on the first floor because of the bars in the windows!  Anybody who has been a student probably knows first hand that the less savoy element of the local community see students as easy pickings when it comes to burglaries and the like.  


      1777695-1517865630152-2018-02-05_20.48.3


      Accommodation block communal kitchen.  The halls are catered (because first year students fail at looking after themselves really hard!  I remember it well), but you still need somewhere to make your pot noodles and hot cups of tea.  


      1777695-1517865695531-2018-02-05_20.49.0


      Shower block.  The recent addition of aquatic blocks were a big help here!  


      1777695-1517865758933-2018-02-05_20.51.0


      Claire's room... (If you're paying attention it's room 69 on the 3rd fhoor)


      1777695-1517865789115-2018-02-05_20.51.0


      She's tried to give it her own touch!


      1777695-1517865843929-2018-02-05_20.52.5


      The (more or less) complete portion of the building at night


      1777695-1517865949406-2018-02-05_20.54.1


      You can see the overall shape of the finished structure with the third wing.  At the moment that wing is only long enough to contain 10 dorms per floor, when complete it's supposed to accommodate 30 dorms per floor, so it's currently a bit shorter than 1/3 of its final length (because the stairwells adds to the length and the rear wing will have 3 stairwells instead of 2 for the front wings)

      I really wanted to figure out the layout of the dorms my guys are going to be spending their first year living in.  However sketching out plans isn't really giving a very good sense of scale and some rooms are ending up stupidly tiny and others are ending up stupidly huge.  I thought modelling it in 3D might be more useful but I don't know how to actually use any 3D software and the learning curve is really steep.  


      Fear not, though, I've figured out I can use Minecraft in creative mode as a modelling tool.  


      The dorms as modelled in Minecraft is far from ideal (You have to use what you have and apply a bit of imagination, all walls are always 1m thick, you have to build everything 1 block at a time, etc), and even after a week I'm nowhere near finishing the dorm building, but it's already proved a really useful exercise.  For example there's 70 dorms per floor, arranged in a T shape, and from that I've realised that Claire's got a hell of a walk to get back to her dorm (She's in apartment 69 of 70 on her floor).  I've also worked out that Claire and Reese are in different wings of the building, as he's going to be in dorm 42 of his floor (Dorms 1-20 are in the left part of the T, 30-50 are in the vertical line and dorms 51-70 are in the right part of the T).  So those are things I probably wouldn't have figured out without this little exercise.  


      Man, I really have to sit down and try and learn Blender or something though, every time I've tried before the user interface defeated me.
