Swerving at age 35 towards a career in game design and could use some advice.

2021.12.06 15:14 FreakishPeach Swerving at age 35 towards a career in game design and could use some advice.

Hey guys,
Like the title says I'm moving towards game design, and I am very concerned that I'm too late to the party. I have zero experience and no design portfolio to speak of.
I have about 15 years experience in creative writing and a general love of fiction so I'm aiming towards writing. That said I know game writing is not typically something you can just apply for so I'm going to apply for a BSc Computer Game Development and try to specialise.
My plan is to spend the next 6 months familiarising myself with game design and development. I'm working on a small horropuzzle game that I want to use to explore the various aspects of design.
I'm taking courses on PluralSight as well as a C++ course provided by Udemy, which I hope will put me in good stead to use Unreal Engine's frameworks, or use it's blueprints if not.
I know I don't need to know code to be a game designer, but my objective is just to build up a foundation of knowledge. Using my personal project I hope to include UI designs, level design, basic prototyping, paper prototyping, and other aspects in a portfolio for my application to uni.
I'm wondering if anybody can recommend free or affordable software for writing a game narrative. I've heard of Twine but not tried it yet.
More than anything though I'm curious if anybody has any additional or specific advice for a beginner venturing into the industry a little later than normal.

2021.12.06 15:14 DaSortaCommieSerb Turns Out Grisha Was Right

I just did a test with console commands. All tech was 1936.
On the Iranian side I had a light tank division: 3/5/1 LT/Mot/LSPG with hospitals/logistics/engineers/motorized recon/signals MW L/R The price was around 3000 IC.
On the Iraqi side I had 5 infantry divisions: 5 inf with engineers, hospital, logistics, arty, at. Superior firepower, l
On both the attack and the defense, the infantry won, even when I threw in 30% planning bonus to help the tanks, which outweighs the 20% entrenchment bonus of the infantry.
As a joke I also tried to see if 2 width spam was viable, and 70 single battalions easily held off 7 10w. The 75% stacking penalty can't overcome the obscene amount of org that comes from 70 divisions.
The game is completely broken.

2021.12.06 15:14 game_pseudonym "simple" 4 belt, lane balancer which keep working if throughput is limited to certain belts.

Well as per title: I'm trying to design a throughput unlimited 4 to 4 belt balancer - which also balances the lanes. I started with the standard 4 to 4 belt balancer and added simple lane balancing to each "lane" - and then tried to move things around to make the footprint smaller. I've come to two designs,

The right one is a simple "extended" normal one, creating a 6x15 footprint, I am to keep it as tight as possible so this design could easily be put "in line" (theoretically one could modify further and use a lot of underground sections and put all lane balancers after each other - but that would be massive and be like 4x24 in size.
```

```

In the left one I tried to minimize the "length", only 1 longer than the standard 4x4 balancer. Though it is much wider and kind of complex, became kind of like a "tetris" feeling, at 9x11.

Do you guys have ideas how the designs can be optimized? While keeping the "throughput unlimited" parameter?

2021.12.06 15:14 donotgogenlty I agree with Hasan on SquidGame outrage - It's Fiction, not a documentary... It's still not real, wtf are people upset about? Wouldn't the actual hypocrite be the Creator who spent $21.5mill? lmao 🤦🤡🤦

I don't usually agree with Hasan, but I had the exact same opinion when I saw others re-creating the SquidGame concepts. I actually really liked all the unique creativity YouTubers put into their own version, especially our Boi Ethan's segment 🙏!
The only criticism I have of someone like Mr Beast is that it was a complete ripoff. Don't get me wrong, it's super impressive and he took a huge risk but to me it almost seems redundant. I think there was a missed opportunity to make some even more complex sets, episodic writing and just more creativity in-general. At the very least it would have been cool to build what the next 'season' would take place (keep a few OG sets, build off that).
All that being said, the ones losing their minds trying to cancel Mr.Beast for 'not getting it' apparently cannot comprehend the difference between fiction and reality lmao... Oof. 🤦

2021.12.06 15:14 FossilHunter99 The Hypocrisy of EFAP.

While doing superchats for EFAP #164, Mauler said there wouldn't be an EFAP breakdown of the Netflix Cowboy Bebop because he hasn't seen the anime and feels unqualified to talk about it. The problem? In the exact same episode, he, Fringy, and Metal broke down Dune 2021 without having read the Dune novel. By his own logic, wouldn't he be unqualified to talk about the film? This has been bothering me since the BvS EFAP movies. Mauler and crew will go on and on about how a piece of media has to stand on it's own (which I agree with) but then he'll allow Meme Repository to put in edits of Suppam the Animated Series to showcase that Lex Luthor as a way to shit on the BvS Lex. Surface of the Sun temperature hot take, but I enjoyed Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. I just really like him as an actor. However, the problem isn't that the BvS Lex is a genderbent Alice from Batwoman, the problem is that his plan makes no sense. When I went to see BvS, the theater owner didn't sit me down and have me read all the Superman comics and watch STAS in it's entirety. I had to judge the film on it's own merits. Just like EFAP constantly says we have to. Because that's how you judge films OBJECTIVELY. If I made a review of the Lord of the Rings films and only talked about how they differed from the books, that would be subjective because not everyone in my audience might have read the books. I had assumed Mauler didn't like the adaptation argument because it's entirely SUBJECTIVE and he's all about OBJECTIVITY. But I guess when you assume, you really do make an 'ass' out of 'u' and 'me'. All I ask of the EFAP crew is that they be consistent with this judgement. I've posted something similar on the MooLer upload, so between this post and that comment Mauler will be able to respond.

I am an Indian CA working with a big 4 having 3 years of post qualification experience in transfer pricing and 3 years of articleship experience in corporate tax. I wish to move to US. So far the job search has not been fruitful. Any suggestions which companies / firms I can apply for a job (other than big 4) and how do I reach out job positions which are sponsored?
