Saikatsu's GAvSim Updates, News and the like
Log for various changes and updates for Gaia Avatar Simulator. Because Sai is horrible at keeping it updated in the first post and it gets lost in the normal posts.
Addition to the previous entry because I can
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

    I feel a little weird replying to this since I don't think we've actually met, but I remember using the GavSim years ago and how helpful and fun it was. Tektek's pretty much taken over avatar sims anymore, but you're the only I know who's ever done a Housing sim and that thing's been great. Housing was so expensive that to decorate a room I'd need to save and plan, but your sim was the only way to see what things actually looked like together to plan a room. So, thanks! I for one have found your sims a big help over the years, and I'd love to see your Housing one updated. If you decide to do so and there's anything I can do to help, lemme know.

    This is a real blast-from-the-past. Good to see you're still kicking around the internet.

    I have no opinions on the car/housing/avatar simulators; just wanted to welcome you back to the crack cocaine of the internet. wink
