Yeah yeah a whole four or so people will even see this. Whatever.
Many <3 to the handful of people with their kind words about my work. I've missed this place a lot, and I've missed being able to help people out around here. I've seriously considered getting my site up to date, but there's a truly staggering amount of information I'd need to obtain ("WHERE DO ALL THESE ITEMS COME FROM WTF"), along with a few other problems. You know, aside from the whole "wait a minute, who the hell are you again?" thing.
The GAvSim itself is now obsolete since the devs FINALLY added a multiple preview feature (TOOK YOU GUYS LONG ENOUGH) and I have no hope of properly mimicking the current avatar system. My skills of a PHP coder are not quite that great, and as previously mentioned, I was unable to get the code set up in a manner that didn't make my host curl up and die (too many people generating images all at once). I had originally planned on putting a timer on how often images could be generated, but couldn't come up with a time that would actually help while not being annoying to the user. On top of that, there's a much higher number of items that are partially transparent. These things are a huge pain in the a** to get ported over, you have no idea. The few that made it into the GAvSim were manually recreated and just didn't look quite right.
However... I do currently have a fair amount of spare time, and I think the housing system is still mostly the same. If my old method of harvesting house images still works, I can at least get that updated just for the hell of it, it just means I have to go rifling through people's houses again.
I dunno. I'd ask for everyone's input but only a few people are going to see this anyway. :V
