General Discussion / Re: El Presidente Trump?
« on: November 11, 2016, 08:44:11 PM »
I'm going to put my two cents in (for what it's worth) because of the fact that this forum in not an echo chamber and I seek constructive discourse.

Before I get started, I need to say that I voted for Hillary. Throughout this entire campaign I have been perplexed by the number of people who were supporting Donald. However, these last few days since the election have been extremely insightful for me. I've come to realize why so many people voted for Donald. Some of the reasons I've found included:

1) They wanted an end to corporate globalization
2) They care more about our national issues, than international ones
3) They are willing to pay the price of any social ramifications in order to have a president that isn't a politician
4) When faced with the lesser of two evils, they chose the one that aligned with their economic ideology

When I started to understand these points, I realized two things. One, how a moderate voter may be swayed to his side. And two, why so many people didn't vote. Trying to choose between social ideology and economic ideology is paralyzing. Someone on the fence may think, "I don't want a corrupt government, but he is so xenophobic... I don't know what to do."

For me the choice was easy simply because I value the social issues more (also Trump's tax plan has a lot more deficit spending than Hillary's, but that's a different can of worms). So to anyone on this forum that voted for Trump - I disagree with you, but I understand where you are coming from.

Song number 6: Cataclysmic

Well everyone, this is the last song that I signed up for. I truthfully don't know exactly when I'll keep making tunes, but knowing me it will be sporadic.

All in all, I've definitely learned a lot about music composition and how to blend ideas together. I'm still shoddy at endings, but it's something to work towards. I hope you all have enjoyed this journey your ears have gone on.

One question for the mods though: If I do continue writing music, do you think I should continue posting them here? Or make a new thread?

Anywho, so long for now. I'm going back to lurking. :P

It's the new song! Song number 5: Lost Legend

This one is very short. Both because I'm a terrible procrastinator and because it is far more complex.

Next week is the last week of tunes. I have no idea how I want to end it... but that isn't any different than how I started most of my song endings.

Song number 4! (week 5... meh)

My creativity took a while to kick into gear - but I got it done!
Be careful with headphones with this one. This song is rather quiet (I'm still getting balancing right) so if you have autoplay turned on with SoundCloud, the next song might blare in your ears.

Song 4(week 5)

No song this week, unfortunately. I travelled with some friends and didn't have the chance to finish anything.

It ain't over yet though. I'll just extend my goal for another week. I signed up for six songs, and y'all are going to get six songs!

Week three!

As such I remind you of the title of this thread. Prepare your earholes.

So my own thoughts are all over the place now that I'm halfway through:

1) I know that I'm rushing these out, but that's what I'm going for. I have a horrible habit of starting something, and not finishing it. So this is somewhat forcing me to actually end a song - no matter how bad that ending might be.

2) These first three weeks I've had at least some idea for what the song would sound like. Now I'm somewhat at a loss for the next three - I'm sure I'll be fine.

3) I've yet to release a song that I was both proud of, and you all liked. I hope that I will be able to do that before the end of this.

That poor moose! But it's life was lost to science - a more noble cause does not exist.

New week's song is up for your organic listening devices!
It's titled "Side Project" (I have no idea what to call songs)

Here is the link, there is also one in the first post.

General Discussion / Gravitational Waves
« on: February 12, 2016, 07:42:48 PM »
I might be posting this to the wrong kind of Nerd-Culture forum, but oh well.

So scientists at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory just did what the name of the place states: observed gravitational waves.
Not only that but they also proved that a pair of black holes can indeed collide together along with proving many parts of Einstein's theory of relativity that have gone un-substantiated for just about 100 years.

Here is a DNews video on it:
and here the paper that was published:

This is super exiting!!!

"What began as a conflict over the [viability of mutation] escalated into a war which has decimated a million worlds. The [manhack] and the [kreck] have all but exhausted the resources of a galaxy in their struggle for domination. Both sides now crippled beyond repair, the remnants of their armies continue to battle on ravaged planets, their hatred fueled by over four thousand years of total war. This is a fight to the death. For each side, the only acceptable outcome is the complete elimination of the other."

Okay, where would be a good place to upload? And what kind of sounds are needed? I can just start making random ones, but having a list might be handy.

I put up another one for a refugee center. Maybe for the farm plot area thingy (that is the technical term).

What other type of environments should I start making tunes for? Mines? Normal cities? I'm not the best at ambiance but I could give it a shot.

I have no idea how the music system works in-game, but I've been learning how to make music using Open MPT and this was my first attempt at something.

I called it "rec center" because killing and looting helping all those wonderful NPCs at the refugee center is my form of recreational activity in the game. Any advice or suggestions about the music would be helpful. I've also never used SoundCloud before, so if someone wants the song in their game and can't download it, (because I did something wrong) tell me so I can fix it.

I uploaded this one too. I had an idea that it would play during lab exploration. Idk

Announcements / Re: Latest experimental features.

Looking at the latest experimental builds, I could clearly see that something new had happened just based on the size of the files.

Jumping in to a new year? Bah, more like jumping into a new experimental!
