The Tequila Den

Combines the world of Tequila with Games.

Maybe I can’t spell…

Ever stare blankly at a computer screen or a your cell phone and just go… that can’t be it. There’s no way it is spelled like that, looks so wrong. I’ve done this extensively the past few days, particularly with “supply”, “satisfied” and multiple variations of resources.

I’m bringing this up because combing through some code trying to decipher what the hell is going on and then re-working, re-writing and straight up WTF’s, all sometimes boil down to a simple, unnoticeable spelling mistake. Sphere can be a bit tricky sometimes in that regard, it usually catches it before you do, but with it’s object-orientated programming, it can get thrown to wayside. I almost cleared up the bank trade function completely again today until I ran through everything in detail and noticed that I missed a ‘u’ in “amount”. The only way I caught this because I was free running in the client and pushing resources out of scope and then noticed the bank acting horribly strange.

Fack. I wonder if I can enable spell check in notepad++? That might be a decent way to go, although, I hate to see how many other errors might pop up.

I’m debating to write a book. Which in theory is a crazy idea. Because I can’t plan worth a shit. But I feel like it may aid me in a few regards. For one, it’d force me to sit down, brainstorm and finally lay out the proper story I’ve been meaning to tell in Mouse. Once I have a start and a finish, I can either convert it to a book or to the game. I’m a huge fan of Star Wars expanded universe and curious to know the rules/legal BS that comes with writing to that genre. But that’s definitely not in the immediate forecast anytime soon. But just something I’ve always been interested in.
