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 ass 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
