Willrandship's upcoming 2 Year Absence
« on: December 10, 2013, 02:09:41 am »
I am going to be gone for approximately two years, starting Wednesday.

I'll be on an LDS mission, in Mexico City, Mexico.


Any questions should be asked relatively quickly. :P

If it helps, just pretend I'm lurking more than usual.

That sucks. I wish you had a bit of free time to get online like Hot Dog at first and Barrett from Calcgames.org a few years ago. Anyway we'll miss you and I hope you return afterward. Also I hope you enjoy your trip. D:

@will: I wish you all the best with your stay in Mexico, but please give us a break, there are surely plenty of computers over there too. So in principle, it's always possible to pass by and keep us aware of your rich (good/bad) experience over there. :)

Pretty much agree. I hope you do have time to visit. :D I'm sure that this will be an interesting experience for you. :) Also, please be careful and stay safe!

LDS is Latter Day Saints, as I am aware of it. This should be a pretty neat experience Will, I hope you enjoy it! I find that I am more motivated after being away from calcs/computers/internet for a while, so maybe you will come back with crazy fantastic motivation and make a Toy Wars 2 :D :P

Yeah I think it's the same mission as in Skhaboinka, Barrett and Hot_Dog, except that Hot_Dog's mission was supposed to last one year, yet he never really came back. Apparently 30% of those people do a mission around 18-20 years old, but I could be wrong.

Well, I went to Honduras SPS from Nov 2001-2003 and had a great time. Got back just after the 49g+ came out.

Have fun!

Thanks!

LDS, as Xeda said, stands for Latter Day Saints. It's a Christian religion, more popularly known as Mormonism, a nickname stemming from the name of one of our books of scripture, the Book of Mormon. It documents the lives of a people who migrated to the Americas around 600 BC. The other books include the King James Bible, a book called the Doctrine and Covenants, a collection of revelations and other writings from the founding of the modern church (mid-1800s-present), and the Pearl of Great Price, a combination of a retranslation of the book of Genesis and a translation of a parchment found in an Egyptian tomb.

That's just the story of the books, though. As far as doctrine goes, the most extreme difference between my beliefs and other Christian churches would be this: We believe that we are children of God, and are working to become gods ourselves.

tl;dr It's a church. We believe stuff.

Regarding Toy Wars, if I made a remake, it would probably not be in BASIC. The code management is just too terrible. Besides, I have other ideas I want to pursue. The main reason I chose to make Toy Wars was because I knew that I could release it at various points of development, depending on how much time I had left to make it (for the contest).

Hmm, I like this way of thinking.

What will you do on your mission, if you don't mind? What's the goal? I'm curious.
