I had a couple of different things to say on my 3D printing experience of the last weeks, so I thought I'd group them together in one post. Not sure this will become a regular column, but it might. My dungeon tiles project has reached the point where I stopped printing, waiting to use the tiles in various games before seeing what else I need. I used 4 spools of filament to print two boxes full of tiles: One with straight wall "regular dungeon" tiles, one with cavern tiles. The regular dungeon tiles are good to faithfully reproduce most classic dungeon maps. Cavern maps however are too irregular to be fitted with any accuracy with a standard set of tiles. Still that box of cavern tiles can be used to create quickly on the spot random cavern encounters for my campaign in the Underdark, or for set encounters where mapping accuracy isn't an issue. I did create two dungeon tiles myself, by modifying the dungeon tiles .stl files I bought. So, theoretically, I could take a cavern dungeon … [Read more...] about Tobold’s Blog: 3D printing thoughts
Combat is supposed to be fun in AdventureQuest 3D. Is it currently not fun? That’s not important; what’s important is that it could be more fun, so the developers are hard at work to make it so. That means that you should be able to play the class you want in the way that you want, and that includes things that might be silly but are fun. Dual-wielding axes in battle? That’s fun. That should be doable. And so Rogues are currently dual-wielding anything because dual-wielding stuff is fun. On the more technical side, the development team is hard at work to fix nagging issues like a lack of animation impact from attacks and the process in which your character dies. Yes, even dying could be made more fun. It also includes things like warriors being able to cleave things relentlessly in close combat, which allows them to take on many foes at once. Check out the full rundown of the impending changes on the official site, and check out MJ’s last stream if you want to … [Read more...] about AdventureQuest 3D is revamping combat to make it more fun, even when you die
The case has plenty of room to store any version of the 3DS, including the New 3DS and the XL. In fact, you can even fit a New 3DS AND another system like the PS Vita or even a Nintendo Switch (sans joycons) in there at the same time. The pouch comes with two stylus (Master sword and Hylian Shield), and a cleaning cloth/sticker map of Hyrule. The case itself has a belt loop and a metal ring for you to either attach to your belt or loop through a strap of another bag. The belt loop snaps nicely. The case itself is faux leather. The inside of the pouch has a soft fuzzy feel. The overall construction of the pouch is sturdy and feels put together well. However, it is worth noting that this will only provide minimal protection for the device inside. There isn't any padding beyond what the leather'ish exterior provides. We wish there were more game slots. The pouch only comes with two of them, which really isn't enough when traveling or wanting to take this on the go. The game … [Read more...] about Zelda Adventurer’s Pouch: 3DS Holder
