@Zach777 I need to build filters on this platform or Federated is virtually unusable. Do you have some tips?
Our #indie #gamedev project is featured today in a guest blog on the #godot news channel. The opportunity to shout out they gave us means a lot to us. Long live #opensource https://godotengine.org/article/guest-post-small-team-big-project-building-moonwards
I'm working on an NPC #minetest mod called "Folks". For now they just stare at you and you can rename them (every NPC can have it's custom name).
Here's a quick video showing that:
Our #game is a FOSS #MMO sandbox game, where people develop a town on the moon and role play living there. It's completely undirected play - no points, goals, missions or anything. It's meant to be a hard #scifi #space fan #maker paradise. We felt we could cultivate a community around it and charge for a few totally optional extras as a monthly fee. Are we better of as #GNU instead of #MIT ? Is it possible to close source to get funding until we have traction and then open source again?
We are thinking of changing the #license on our FOSS game from #MIT to #GNU . But we've also considered that for the sake of getting funding we would consider forking the project and closing the fork. If that seemed like it would enhance funding, I'd be willing to do that. We could use advice on this. Any input?
If you never had the pleasure of experiencing gloryhammer, let me introduce you
You can use your Mastodon account to subscribe to PeerTube channels, like videos and comment on them. You can use it to follow and interact with other federated services as well such as Pleroma, Frendica, Pixelfed and WriteFreely. You can do the same with most other fediverse services so if you decide Mastodon isn't for you, you can explore alternatives without having to leave the people you met here. Once again welcome and have a nice stay
Recently we got quite a bit of new users, here are some tips:
1- Use federated timeline: By default it's mess however once you use language filtering and block some bot instances (like botsin.space and newsbots.eu) it becomes veey useful for finding new people.
2- Follow @FediFollows: Fedifollows is an account that reccomends interesting fediverse accounts for people follow, great for discoverebility.
I just had a dream that somehow wound up with me thinking about covid19 - the over a million people who have died from it, and the thousands that are *dying every single day*.
The emotional part of my brain finally realised the immense scale of this tragedy and how poorly we've handled it.
First time I've cried in a long time.
Stuff. You've got it.
In our new guide @Schykle breaks down how to get it all synced up with Syncthing!
