Main Website Update!
« on: March 05, 2015, 03:40:13 PM »
For new players to come in, I think some more stuff on the main website 'terrablox.com'
Should be added.

I think we should make a trailer for the current version of terrablox, maybe we should make some community made videos and mash them up as one trailer or something?

And there should be a dynamic way for users to add items to the hosted mods section too!
Like users could upload texture packs, skins, schematics, and stuff directly to the terrablox.com/mods page.
I've made some stuff for terrablox, but I'm too lazy to link to much of it.

I agree that would be a very good approach tho i cant record lol but i need an old version of terrablox...to make anymore texture packs or anything like that so imma do that today.... And see what i can make also mod structure maker will get udpated with tools tho i dont know if it will be needes as much as you cant place a single schematic at a certain point if that was possible then the structure maker would really be a good tool😁

If we'd find a way around website programming I don't see why we wouldn't be able to have hosted online skins with account system.
I'd say that's within the limit range of hosting costs.

I can host anything. I just don't have the knowledge of how to do that stuff, or the time to learn atm. :)

Actually, I'm gonna try grabbing the HTML of main website and modifying it. I'll post back to see how it goes.

Guma, if you ever need assistance. You can ask me anytime.

Well, as long as it is html/css and not another language.

That's quite excellent. You certainly have much more creativity than many when doing this.

May I suggest you replace the images (home, forums, downloads and hosted mods) with actual text and enclose them with a more interesting type of border, like a custom one from an image. You can always use @font-face for the terrablox font, but I think it would be better with a common font like arial with perhaps text shadows? Also it could be cool to use the pseudo class :hover to change the background to something else...

Well, I'm just suggesting weird ideas, don't listen....

I could make them morph when mouse hovers, but I don't think I'll change the way it looks. Mainly for consistency in design :P

But I'm always open for ideas!

Not too bad! :)

I'll talk to Dadio about maybe mocking something up as well (NOTE FROM THE FUTURE: He said he would, then nothing happened.)

Also, I'm in my new flat now and only have internet through my phone. I don't know if I'll get proper internet yet, there's a few things I want to sort out before I even think about it. I could probably still connect to my web host though.

can you tether your phone to your PC? Or possibly create a personal hotspot?
Say nope to dope!

I'd say as long as we know Jack is alive and well it's all fine. I can wait one or few weeks if it's for the Terrablox.
I'm really hyped up for the new version! Hopefully Jack also does some progress in the meantime.

I'm really convinced that this is from the actual future. I'm almost joking.

I can't seem to tether a Windows phone. But yeah I do the wireless internet sharing thing. It's good enough for reading up on technical stuff when I get stuck, checking forums and possibly updating the website. Videos I can still do at home, but will have to upload them when I get into the office.

I am working on stuff. I'm actually running my PC in power saving mode now, so it's like a third or a quarter slower... Which isn't a bad thing for testing Terrablox and optimizing it. The 2 BIGGEST performance hitters are Noise Generation and the Frustum Culling. The quadtree optimisation is half way done.
