Civvi’s norn, Milk, with my dragon Pearl.

Look at how pretty it is. Please go shower Civvi with all the spare love you’ve got! ❤

Also, I made some blarf drawings. From now on I’ll try (try!) to make some drawings every now and then. And comics. And pictures. And I’ll collect them on my art page. 😀

 

On another note: Ham5ter announced he’ll take up the Albianwarp development again.

Woo! Yay! Such awesome!

For updates you can check in at the Caos Coding Cave‘s #AlbianWarp channel. Sometimes, cool streams are happening!

[code] Picking a random letter in CAOS

Malkin approached me on Discord, asking me how to pick a random letter. I’ve been using random numbers in CAOS with the RAND command for like forever, but I hadn’t found a reason yet to pick random letters. The question made me think, though.

Of course, there’s the old-fashioned, boring and bulky-code-way of just picking a random number between 1 and number-of-letters-in-the-alphabet. Then you can set a variable to a letter depending on the value of that number, in an if-elif-elif-elif-elif-… scenario.

Surely there should be a cleaner/easier way!

Recently I learned more about the CHAR variable thanks to Amaikokonut’s blog post over at Naturing :: Nurturing. I noticed char has two commands, one that returns a variable and one that sets a variable.

The command returning the character returns the ASCII number for that character.
I wondered if the one setting a variable also uses the ASCII code for a character: Yup!

So, all that’s left is to figure out the ASCII numbers of the characters you want to use.

For the characters A to Z, that’s 65 to 90. For the characters a to z, that’s 97 to 122.

So if you want a character between a to z, the resulting code would be this:

sets va00 “a”
setv va01 rand 97 122
char va00 1 va01

Nice and clean, right? 😀

[meta] Testing Room

Just skip to the bottom if you’re only here for the download.

While I was lurking in the Discord channels, someone mentioned Randoms Room. I remembered having fond memories of using that room, since it was so versatile.

There is a small issue though: the rooms inside the metaroom stretch from left to right and thus cannot be “divided” into multiple parts. So if you want to keep a norn in this specific place you have to use a stopperplant or freeze the creature or… figure out something else. Changing the doors between the rooms won’t work because there aren’t any.

I CANT FIX DIS WITH MAGIC WORDS WHAT I DO

I started chatting with xRAINxOFxBLOODx about this issue and decided to create another “testing room” where there’s a bit more variety in room shapes.

xRAINxOFxBLOODx provided the beautiful background for this metaroom. Here it is:

Pretty, right? The room spans 4 floors, of which the upper floors are divided into 2 or 3 compartiments.

As a fun little extra, there’s the option to toggle the room doors so they have a permeability of 100, 50 and 0. A permeability of 50 only allows some things through.

It’s a bit similar to Randoms Room as in it’s just a plain room: no CA, no lifts, no doors, no resources. Just a different lay-out.

Anyways, without further ado, have a download!

[Art] Fan buttons!

I’ve been feeling artsy lately.

Since I can’t seem to find a wordpress plugin that shows the last blog posts of people’s blogs, and I think plain links are not pretty enough to click on, I changed the links to pretty buttons! You can see them below:

 

 

Now, I would like more pretty buttons but I can’t seem to find many linkback buttons to sites that are still active, therefore I offer to create a button for your website!
