@Archomeda yo do you know if the specialization "lightning bolt lines" that connect traits are a gif asset we have access to?
Archomeda

not that i know of
i doubt the game uses gifs in this way
i think it might just be a native UI animation
well, probably a larger image (or 2) that animates by moving
and clipping

@ptolstoi : i talked with Chris a couple weeks ago and we agreed to pick it up after the expansion since he's swamped, and my situation at work doesn't help taco development either currently :P

@lye, i'm now curious as to why those asset kits are now available, literally a day after i just mentioned them heh

@ArvidLangsoe Also, there's a 600request/min/ip (iirc) rate limit in place to prohibit abuse.
i doubt you'd hit that with a "small application", but it's good to know nevertheless

@Werdes Ok! Thank you. I dont think i will ever hit that in the "final" product, but its good to know in early development when testing stuff :)

@Archomeda lol damn those kits have been a long wait
i bet they uploaded the heart of thorns kit a year ago and forgot to add a link
@Archomeda 100% coincidence; I don't actually make things happen

You make things happen for us, and that's what matters

coincidence huh? oh well, works for me; but you still make things happen :)

@BoyC that's wat I feared, it just doesn't scale 🙄
But i am happy it is possible.

the bottleneck is more on my end currently though
overnight i went from being a developer and a scrum master to being a developer a scrum master an architect and a team lead
with the added benefit of my mentor being removed from the picture (ex architect and team lead)
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 15 2017 19:15
and the extra benefit of not being paid more for it?
;)
BoyC
@BoyC
Sep 15 2017 19:15
exactly since there are "no more team leads" and the architecture will be "designed by the teams in a self organizing manner"
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 15 2017 19:16
haha, In know the feeling, we're going through the same thing now
BoyC
@BoyC
Sep 15 2017 19:16
in the past 5 weeks i wrote exactly 3 lines of code
they did fix 2 bugs, but that's not the point
Edgar Doiron
@Coffee4cr
Sep 15 2017 19:17
yeah, I'm refactoring a web form, and I was suppose to deliver it 2 weeks ago, i'm not even half way done
lol
stupid meetings
:(
BoyC
@BoyC
Sep 15 2017 19:18
oh tell me about it
last week i had 5 face to face sitdowns with different management people, all of whom wanted to know how i'm doing in light of my boss's responsibilities being thrown my way
Edgar Doiron

lol
oh my meetings are with the client, talking about projects, and evaluating them, so they can push those numbers back to the project managers and we can start working on them many months from now
haha
see years
I've done projects that were evaluated in 2014....
this year
and not just projects
but bug fixes
like wtf, bug has been there for 4 years, must not be that important
