Terrain Sculpting Python Script WIP

Monday, April 9th, 2007

Making a terrain for a model to stand on can be a time consuming process in Vue. I know a couple of tricks to make work but I wanted something to make it easier. A python script seemed the obvious answer. I’ve been hacking around with it all weekend. It’s not ready for public release […]

Getting all Medieval with Spreadsheets

Saturday, April 7th, 2007

While hunting through my books to pick out my Thursday Thirteen #4 I came across a rather dull title called Medieval Regions and their Cities I picked up really cheap in the Blackwell book shop at Liverpool University. I picked it up in a sale of second hand books it says 50p in pencil inside. […]

Thursday Thirteen #4

Thursday, April 5th, 2007

Thirteen Things Reference Books I most use when writing stories (with Amazon links for more information where I could find the book listed) Roget’s Thesaurus: I’ve yet to find a better thesaurus than the one that has evolved through Longman to Penguin. The Story of Western Architecture: More about the history of the development of […]

Noir Cracks the 50k mark

Wednesday, April 4th, 2007

Pushed past the 50,000 word mark on my Noir Fairy Tale tonight. I’m starting to have a feeling I can see the end of the story is within reach. The next section will see the detective discover what’s going on so then it’s only a short way to trying to foil the plot and the […]

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2007

Just the usual round of boring web site maintenance on my impworkssite tonight, some tweaking on the Vue Squidoo Lens, the Vue Python Squidoo Lens, the Vue google search and my Disavowed-1010 blog. Dull but all neccessary.

A Vue Accident Waiting to Happen

Monday, April 2nd, 2007

I was messing around with Vue and Apophysis a free fractal flames generator for Windows. The render is a simple sphere with a texture derived from a single fractal flame applied to it. Just a quick render without a lot of thought about composition but still there is something rather dynamic about the flames.

Day Trip into the Past

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

I was invited by a friend to join a day trip round three sites in the North West including a hill fort, some early mines and the stone remains of a burial mound. Getting into town to meet the coach almost proved a difficult proposition because the first bus only just got into the city […]

Dr Who – Smith and Jones

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

Due to tiredness and need to be up early today (see my post later once I’ve picked out a picture to go with it) delayed this post till today. I’ll not spend too much time on it to avoid posting any spoilers. Enjoyable fluff that made logical sense and was coherent without an over reliance […]
