Often a VR game will fully intend to knock the player's socks off by showing tons of shader effects or a hyperdetailed character close-up, meanwhile on an Odyssey+ with an RX580 I'm usually half impressed, half eager to be on the other side of the event

Card's shipped, currently vibrating in anticipation. I was thinking about it, the only VR experiences I'd consider especially smooth have been Synth Riders and Windlands; it'll be nice to play other titles without being especially worried about framerates lurching to a crawl

Trying to figure out whether or not they'll attempt to remake the Stories duology after this. On one hand, they're feature-rich expansions with great music and plenty of good content, VCS has a fittingly desperate story; on the other, its comedy writing, whoof, oof, ouch, ow

I'm sure the GTA trilogy remakes were in development well before re3/reVC dropped, but I can't help but wonder if the C&D was because some Take-Two person looked at the remake side-by-side with the open-source engine and realized how bad their new paid version looked

I rarely get deep into anime intros but I really wanted a Taiko no Tatsujin chart for this one. I've seen video of a TJAPlayer3 map but that client's hit-or-miss for me in any case

Every aspect of this model needs tweaking or redoing, and I'll be handling that before I start modeling anything else! I still think I'll benefit from completing the remaining steps with what I've got as a trial run, just to remove the mystery from the process

I'll have to verify how effective it is manually, but I think I found a Google Doc file containing a start-to-finish Blender-to-Unity tutorial that works in 2.9, and if I'm able to complete the remaining steps using it I'm finding this person's damn PayPal to reward them

Upgraded my CPU cooler in advance of the new card getting here, nothing fancy (from stock Wraith Prism to a Noctua NH-U9S, the best option for my HTPC case). Things weren't especially dire before but I'd still like to have extra insurance to keep components from throttling

Basic digits applied, I will now bake in these colors to a simple texture map and set off on a one-person journey straight to weightpainting Hell

My goal for now is to model one or two of my three "main" fursonae (kobold, tortoise, and dragon) for VRChat and/or LIV (VR social camera overlay), after which I'll model [REDACTED], and from then on I should feel comfortable enough in my process to model for others for pay

Marked some basic seams for texturing, tomorrow I'll be starting work on fingers and toes. I'll be taking breaks for other things, but I wanna get this into Unity ASAP

Some older art was hard for me to look at today, so I'm trying to bust out of rigid expectations I'd set for myself

I'm sitting out BLFC this year but I'm planning to be at the next one, and it will unquestionably be for the purpose of savoring being in the presence of other people

6600XT reviews say "how could you possibly justify this when the GeForce 3060Ti performs better and has an MSRP of a mere $400?", meanwhile we're at a point where everywhere with a functioning Add To Cart button prices those cards at $800 or higher. Market's dire as hell

Order's back on after a chat with customer service, which is good, because I surveyed the playing field and it seemed like my other options were to either refresh search results or enter random drawings for bundle deals featuring a slightly worse card at the same price

The source frame is so good, such a nuanced expression! Back when the meme was new I browsed through other people's redraws just to see what emotions people emphasized from within it
