My Latest Project
« on: June 29, 2008, 06:44:55 AM »

The local Church





The Sistine Chapel behind the church. As the Rev calls it.

Sistine Chapel [for Sixtus IV], private chapel of the popes in Rome, one of the principal glories of the Vatican. Built (1473) under Pope Sixtus IV, it is famous for its decorations. By far the best-known achievements in the chapel are the work of Michelangelo.

The Rev does have a sence of humor.


8' x 12' - Cedar walls , Cedar Shake Roof , Cedar Flooring. Nice scent. Standard  2x4 spruce frame and truss. 90% was pre-cut as a kit. Lots of measuring, and a TON "O" Nails. Not 1 power tool used in this building project.

It is a storage shed for the Thrift Shop next door. The Church makes over $30K a year from that.

Nice work Proc. Looks clean, straight and level. I do the handyman/amateur builder thing too. Built my own cottage and done a few renos. Invaluable knowledge to learn - specially if you own a home. I just moved to another province and have 5 acres of land to play with, so I'm thinking of building a studio/guest house a bit away from the main house.

Shoutbox isn't the place for rehashing this. Here's the thread about DM server spawn farthest from 2006/2007:

but that's *NOT what the DM server is supposed to cater to

It's not ideal for 1v1 situations, but that's what the DM server is supposed to cater to. Also, there are 7 other maps besides DM4 (actually 8 for the automatic mymap map between dm8 and dm1). I think there are more positives than negatives.

It happens to better players too. I know I've been in first, or second place, only to die and spawn right next to the other leading player multiple times in a row, and having to dodge rockets in a narrow corridor without any weapons myself (other than blaster).

It's not the best for 1v1 situation

I saw a clearly-new player earlier, and it spawned him like 3 or 4 times in a row right next to a better player. Instant death each time they spawned. I imagine that can be discouraging and frustrating, particularly when someone is trying to get a handle on the game. Spawn farthest would avoid this.

Might be interesting to code a hybrid spawn function that doesn't focus on "farthest" so much as avoiding the few most congested spawn points?
