Nic's development tweets

I tweet a lot about the development of Fringe Planet - as well as talking about game development in general. Twitter is fantastic for getting the message out, but tweets always slowly fade out of view as time goes past. So I've decided to add this section to the website, which contains everything I've tweeted. You'll find a lot of information about both me personally as well as the game.

(oh and if you've got Netflix, I 100% recommend the Umbrella Academy - binged both seasons over the weekend, fantastic show)

Blimey it's a bit warm today...

Good morning folks and a happy Monday to one and all :-) Hope everyone had an amazing weekend. I've gotta a cuppa and a long TODO list - time to commence the #gamedev :-)

Good morning folks and happy Friday. Today I'll mostly be complaining about the weather :-) What are your plans for today folks? #gamedev #heatwave

Ear still hasn't popped yet :-(

And if you are interested about that gif, you can read about the dynamic texture generation I use in @FringePlanet here: https://fringeplanetgame.com/blog/2020/04/24/the-peons-skins-dev-blog-93/ :-) #gamedev

Good morning folks a happy Thursday to one and all :-) What are your plans for today? I'll be working on Project X today (also waiting for my ear to pop, woke up to it feeling blocked, which is irksome) #gamedev

Regular readers will know I've been using a bunch of bots who speak lorem ipsum to each other (there are reasons ofc - I'm not that weird). I now have 5 million chat lines for them. I don't know what they are saying, but they seem to be enjoying themselves :-) #gamedev #procgen

My hobby - hearing a helicopter (it's normally the air ambulance around the local hospital) and seeing where it came from. I'm using https://www.freedar.uk/ to get this info, it's pretty fascinating stuff :-)
