  1. Thanks for the comments! I happily had a chance to finish the full tutorial. What I rather liked about it was the step by step method to learning the powers (just like any mistborn, there is a learning curve). Two places where the progression was not immediately intuitive was how to hover by the cube, and how to pewter jump up the wall crevice. Did not realize at first how to do that despite the prompt. Actually, I have no issues with the default keybinds. Yes there are quite a few functions, but I just assumed that not having enough fingers is normal--I do not play pc games all that frequently to give productive comments there. But perhaps instead of a text-heavy help overlay could you show a colorcoded picture of the relevant keyboard section? Images are easier to read than words.
  2. Wow your work into this is simply incredible! I only had a little chance to mess around with it but I really enjoyed what I saw. I did find the controls a bit hard to grasp (using mouse and keyboard). Seems that every time I open the simulator there is some downtime before I coax some form of coordination into my movements. There is just a lot going on, and understandably so. I had a thought that maybe you could add a way to deselect all pushes at once? For example when jumping from anchor(s) I would like to mass deselect them without the R-E combo (or is it R-Q for pushes? I get them mixed up). Zinc peripheral does help with that, but I do not have enough fingers for everything Either way, thank you for distributing your game and sharing your progress!!
  3. Thank you @MetaTerminal I have participated in puzzle hunts before, just not in a forum setting. Or Sanderson themed. I look forward to it!
  4. Looks like I will be around at least some of this weekend! Can I still jump in a team? I do not know what I am doing, but that rarely stopped me
  5. May the randomness be in your favor
  6. So, avatar is coming to Netflix. Not exactly sure how I feel about this. The disappointment of the 2010 movie was strong. What does everyone here think? This about sums it up for me:
  7. @StarrFall My pleasure
  8. @Cenire welcome fellow forum lurker Although even some of us with a profile have never stopped hardcore lurking... I have entertained the idea of creating a group for us forum lurkers, but that would defeat the purpose. Like asking introverts to unite. Or herding cats.
  9. Movie? What movie? There was no movie
  10. Kudos to you, took me 6 years and I am a relatively fast reader. The slog was too much. Needed a break every ~2 books. Mostly enjoyable read, but I wouldn't do it again
  11. I decided to be mostly skeptical until proven otherwise. ^because is too true where avatar is concerned :,(
  12. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the goat attacked. There are three things all wise men fear: a goat at sea, a night with no goat, and the anger of a gentle goat. Goat fell from the sky...
  13. Incredible! Really wish I could give more than one upvote! <3 <3 <3
  14. Oh definitely missed that point. Also found a WoB on soulcasting to make aluminum. Looks like as usual the question has been asked before. Still I wonder of limitations if any.
  15. As much as this sounds perfectly reasonable... ..I cannot see Marsh being okay with any being approaching him with something sharp. Marsh, the strong independent Ironeyes and Death Himself turning his back on someone to get a shave? After all that he has been through, I expect he will have trust issues.
  16. I am wondering about this actually. As a sink for investiture, I assume you cannot soulcast alumimum into anything else. But would it be reasonable to assume cosmere magic allows soulcasting to make aluminum? Thinking about this, I get a mental image of everyone running around in soulcast aluminum armor and that feels too powerful. Seems like it would upend cosmere magic balance and by Brandon's magic laws there should be limitations. Perhaps the stormlight cost to soulcast aluminum is extrodinarily high. If it is possible, maybe that is why Hoid wanted this ability? Almost seems like a videogame cheatcode. Hoid is a videogame cheat code.
  17. Quite like this art style! I am optimistic that it will portray the story well
  18. In case you did not see yet, Brandon has some really nice YA series as well. Reckoners in particular (Steelheart is book 1) is quite popular I hear and his new book coming out this year (Skyward) sounds interesting. If you want really meaty, then Wheel of Time (WoT) 14 book series could be for you
  19. Welcome @Goldeneyes_Kholin to 17S! Have an upvote, and I would suggest to steer clear of the hemalurgic cookies...
  20. Welcome @TruthlessofShinovar! Welcome to the forum you join to learn about Hoid's antics and stay for discussions involving Realmatic Theory... To start with Way of Kings is indeed ambitious of you. I am glad you are giving Mistborn a try! That is where I recommend starting with cosmere. His writing style is unique, but I promise that finishing the trilogy will blow you away. Have an upvote and avoid the hemalurgically spiked cookies
  21. I have been teaching Matlab for a while , and believe me that was not the case. I helped the student figure it out so now there is just a mildly entertaining story.
  22. 4/5 Easy investiture, without the bother of judging art. Weather could be improved, but hey, at least I wasn't bored. Would visit again. ~Lightsong
  23. Given this chance to start fresh, Urafius sought to bring meaning back into his life. But he's not sure where he is. Had Endowment dropped him somewhere random on Nalthis? At least he wasn't floating in vacuum anymore.
  24. Reading this thread has convinced me that it deserves to be necro posted every once in a while so more Sharders can read of this insanity. Talk about taking analysis to the extreme. ^not that I believe in any of this. But I would love to be proved wrong!
  25. I do not have a turn it off/on again story, but programming indeed has its own bugs... "My new Matlab function won't work" "You are using FunctionName inside the script for FunctionName. It doesn't work because it doesn't exist yet. Why do you need it here anyway?" "But how is FunctionName supposed to work without FunctionName inside it?" "That's why you are writing FunctionName in the first place"
