Learning Blender Part 3

I snuck away for an hour after a spot of work and learnt how to do curves with point manipulation and grease pencil. I give you: SQUIGGLES!

Definitely good fun. I'm enjoying the course, it gives me a little bit of structure to work with.

Next step is working with 2D, I don't think that's more grease pencil but using 2D reference art; which will be handy because that tends to be how I work.

"Finished" Astroneer

Mangaged to unlock all the gateways on the surface of every planet and then the ones at their cores then unlock the platform thing and then I got "the ending"

Not unlocked the gold suit yet as I have 5 or so achievements one of which requires a multiplayer game to do not sure if I can be bothered with that or not

Learning Blender Part 1

One of my goals for this year of doing was to learn Blender 3D and with some of the other goals going rather well, I decided to plough this evening into it. My end goal is to start reproducing Icar models in Blender.

I don't have the time to learn Blender like I did Lightwave, which was to sink thousands of hours of play. I have precious little free time, so I've decided to be a little more structured in my approach.


Observation is a short story focused indie game where you play as the AI on board a space station where something has gone very wrong. All of your interactions with what's left of the crew and the station itself take place at first through fixed cameras inside the station then later little drone cameras you can maneuver about.

New Toy

I think this is the second most expensive thing I've ever bought, the first being my flat.

So my golf was getting on a little bit still running fine but starting to need more than rudimentary swap all the fluids wipe it with a wet towel and call it good maintenance so I figured time to investigate replacing it. Since I was thinking of getting something newer and better I thought well why not try out some EV's and so I drove a few the Chevy bolt the Nissan and so on. I also tried the Tesla Model 3 which is a very fun car.
