Level Design and Grey-box practice

I am continuing to build my level design skills with my concept art exercise. This is where I take piece of concept art and recreate it in Unity to work on proportion, scale and speed. This one I did in an Hour and five minutes.

This one is a tad off everything is a little too close to the camera, so my angle is a bit off. However, everything individually is pretty nice, its close but not perfect, far from it. As I say after every single one of these, they do work and I am getting better and faster. I have already planned my next one it will be a mixture of landscape and buildings, it’s also a big one so should be a good scale exercise.

Fun, fun, fun!!!

He couldn’t stay away from you forever right?

If anything, Nina couldn’t stay away from Nari forever.

Building on Level design skills

As an exercise to get better at level design and build on my interpretation skills I am doing diorama style grey boxes of concept art. This one I completed in roughly an hour and a half.

This was a very grid like city, a great exercise to better understand proportion and its importance.

Reality Disintigrates

It gets lost in all the comedy of the blog but facts-i-just-made-up was originally a very angry spoof of numerous “genuine” fact blogs that routinely posted unsourced and incorrect facts, some of which seemed to have been things that people just thought would be cool if they were true, just made up. It was a trend I thought would die off in time as people began to realize that some fact blogs were liars, or at best just ignorant bloggers who didn’t check their sources.

Obviously this trend has not ended, it has instead gone mainstream. The most powerful people in the world now routinely lie on an unprecedented level and make up claims on the spot, almost pathologically. Many news sources parrot these lies without even the slightest reality checks. And many people simply trust what they see, be it a slight misrepresentation skewed to fit a point of view or a glaring, obvious falsehood written to deceive and destroy lives.

I just saw a fun lesson in how easy it is. Here’s a post that got maybe ten notes in its original form:

http://sharkchunks.tumblr.com/post/155138835773

It’s a joke, there are a bunch of Bob Ross quotes all over in this format, little grey subtitle boxes over him painting. It looks real on the surface. The post clearly states that the quote is in fact from the Akira Kurosawa movie “Ikiru.” It’s from a series of posts that play on how similar Kurosawa scripts can be to Bob Ross quotes, and on the numerous incorrectly attributed not-really-Bob-Ross quotes going around tumblr.

Then someone removed the caption. It got 17,000 notes in a day.

I’m pretty sure that in a year, maybe a month, maybe less, Google will find very few sites attributing this quote to the film Ikiru. Quote aggregators will find the thousands of reposts without the correct attribution and then the millions of people who blindly read over them will repost it in ten thousand forms, securing the quote as Bob Ross’s on every page commonly available. Maybe, maybe if we’re lucky, Wikiquote will at least keep it in the “attributed” section instead of just listing it as his own.

And that’s all the benign version, an innocent joke made reality by more or less innocent bloggers. Imagine what will become of reality after years of world leaders and globally trusted news sources lying intentionally without punishment, without negative consequences for the liars.

We are entering a new era in which nobody knows fact from fiction, and everybody makes up the facts as they go along.

In any case, happy 5th birthday to facts-i-just-made-up.
