my graph embedding code works much faster with hexagon-to-hexagon comparison than it does with any other shape set. generating a map with 3000 tiles where all of them are differently-sized hexagons takes less time than trying to generate a 240 tile map with arbitrary shapes.
i should uh probably see if i could fix that

it's kinda depressing to see the people on twitter going 'i can't move to mastodon because i can't build my brand there', like, i totally understand that b/c people, artist people specifically, do really have a job that requires that they be Optimally Findable and Highly Viral. it just sucks that back in the day that would be via some professional network but now that obligation has grown and utterly subsumed all social interactions. gotta be on-brand all the time because margins are that thin.
like the inspirations for this: the nier automata map; old game tycoon games (or http://themeparkitect.tumblr.com/post/173679747147/devlog-update-193); stuff like https://www.planetminecraft.com/project/phain-game-board-of-the-ancients-6000-x-6000-multiple-biomes-survival-map-923-plots-theme---hexagons/; stuff like that. representational but also very clearly structured by a weird mathematical constraint
i am perpetually in a state of needing to get more plant pots. also soil. i wanna break up my snake plant into like five smaller plants, and also repot four of my peace lilies in variously-sized pots, etc, etc. also repot that fern i got a month or two ago. gotta get pots for all of that.
some more coherent height fields
yeah that's better
i should probably make geometry for points near the mesh, b/c those holes are kinda weird
i think the graph slowness might just be that some expansions (some shapes?) are just like 100x more costly to compute for some reason. huhh.
like i really love haskell as a language but trying to figure out its time/space complexity is a mess at the best of times
i need to figure out why my graph generation code has gotten so slow. i used to be able to generate graphs w/ hundreds of nodes and now it can take forever to generate one with a dozen. hmmmm
this is LIKE better

i've been kind of thinking about doing some short gamedev tests, like making little games that are maybe five minutes long, just to test out deployment / polish, and thinking about like, yeah it would be nice to make some kinda weird psychosexual personal pieces but... all the porn stuff i'm working on now is pretty solidly sublimated. there's not actually a lot of complex psychosexual stuff going on in my head actually. the sublimated stuff is just, you know. porn, and stuff about the process of sublimation wouldn't really be hot & would probably just come off as preachy. o well
yup thats what level geometry should look like
there's actually some weird stuff with this tessellation and how i'd make continuous geometry, but uh i gotta get that sorted, clearly

" I just wanted to let you know that I selected this picture as a Featured Story. It is in the queue now and should appear as a featured Story in a few days.
Since this is about the fifth or sixth time that I've tried to feature this and all the previous times someone has illegally undone the feature before it was featured, I would contact Toumal if it doesn't appear as a featured Story in a few days. Someone is fucking you and others over. "
1. why is this a thing you can do 2. why is the mod team so dysfunctional that this is something somebody's actually doing 3. WHY ARE YOU TELLING RANDOM USERS ABOUT MOD DRAMA
i mean it doesn't _surprise_ me that it's a passive-aggressive shitshow, but,
i'm morally opposed to having more than one mastodon account
which is why all the code junk and monster porn is seamlessly interleaved in my posts
by which i mean i might actually be following people back, instead of, never following anybody. but you know who knows
it's actually very weird to think about... using shortform social media as a place where i actually talk to people? i'm used to just kinda posting nothingness into the void and never interacting w/ anybody
oof i'm tired
hi i'm xax. i code and write monster porn, not necessarily in that order. also at https://xax.dreamwidth.org & http://archiveofourown.org/users/xax/, and running my in-development monster porn video game @ http://tzaphiriron.sidemoon.net/hell/
