Urgent security update

staff:

Bad news. A major vulnerability, known as “Heartbleed,” has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr.

We have no evidence of any breach and, like most networks, our team took immediate action to fix the issue.

But this…

Take care online peeps.
Also look for nice messages like this one that lets you know that the site has fixed the vulnerability on their own servers before you change your password.

The music video for “Family Party” has just been revealed! :D Woohoo!

Family Party!

Hearing this again is so nice, I was lucky enough to hear it for the first time live at her Australian concert and this new MV just blows me away.

I wish I could join in on the games she’s playing ~

Algorithms in action: Quadtree

sector3games:

One of our awesome team members, has been working on our spatial algorithms, for our SharedTech code base.

This one, shown above, is the Quadtree algorithm. We will be using this algorithm for fast lookups on entities, of which we’ll have many, in our upcoming title. Lookups are important…

That team member happens to be me :D

It’s developed quite a bit from when I did this demo too and I made some very important changes which will be useful if you want to implement a similar system

- Created a QuadTreeActor class: Representing a Game World object inside of the tree, this object checks to see if it’s moved outside of a quad tree node. Before this I was iterating through the entire tree to find nodes that had gone out of bounds which was not ideal at all!

- Allowed for ‘static’ objects: These take up no processing time after they’ve been placed into the tree and this property is placed onto objects that never move in the game world

- Automatic insertion: Actors will automatically look for a quad tree if they don’t have a link to a specific node, which take the responsibility away from the tree itself which would have to do a lot of work to find objects if they didn’t manage themselves.

It was suggested by a Ryceball that after all three pilots are drawn, I should combine them into one pic, well here it is! Enjoy
