[GAME] Askew MAJOR UPDATE — Age of steel!
Profile icon
fuzzyastrocat

In this new version of Askew, you can build new structures, use new tools, craft new items and much more! (If you're new to the game, check out the original talk post).

Screen Shot 2020-10-26 at 1.12.01 PM

New features

Here are the main new additions to the game:

  • You can show/hide the chat with the h key.
  • You can see all crafting recipes by clicking on the < in the upper-right and then selecting a category.
  • New items and resources! Steel, ovens, steel walls, ash, workbenches, roofs, picks...
  • Some items require that you are near other items to craft them. This is indicated by an item with a + in the recipes menu. (For instance, to craft a wooden wall you must have 30 wood and be standing right next to an already placed workbench.)
  • There are now multiple tools! You start off with a saw, which can be used to saw down trees and do other miscellaneous tasks. To get stone, you'll need to craft a pick, which can be obtained with 20 wood and being next to a workbench.
  • To switch tools, just click on the desired tool in your inventory.
  • Improved anti-hack! People hopefully have gotten tired of uselessly spamming the server anyway, but if you still are thinking about it please don't.

Screen Shot 2020-10-26 at 1.09.20 PM

Tips

  • Getting a workbench set up is essential since almost everything now requires being near one. Getting a pick is also very helpful to craft more interesting items (you'll need stone).

  • You can obtain ash by extinguishing (removing) a fire.

  • Steel walls are more difficult to build, but they're also more difficult for others to tear down.

Enjoy! If you find any bugs please report them!

KNOWN BUG: If you craft too many types of items your inventory overflows. I'm working on a way of fixing this (dropping items).

IMPORTANT: Open the game in a new tab! If you don't, you'll end up spawning in the middle of nowhere, because I've implemented a security system to only allow players from the site itself.

Bro, didn't u see the messages that lead to the ban? It was insignificant and my change.org petition already has 4 signatures, the petition to unban hypergamerstuds, so ya...good luck trying to keep me banned for defending myself against a troll. wtf is wrong with mods on the internet these days, banning people for fighting back against trolls @CodeLongAndPros

Profile icon
badst

@IHateUrGutsRepl "4" signatures. Probably alts... You're gonna have to understand what life is like, nothing always goes your way and what you are doing is making it worse, your futile efforts are going to waste. Mods words are final. No point arguing, and accept it.

bro, I have to do this 4 school @pepelaugh

I am begging you to let me have a second chance, u have no idea the crap I've gone thru in my personal life recently @pepelaugh

@moderation plz give me a second chance @IHateUrGutsRepl

Profile icon

@IHateUrGutsRepl The irony, at least change your name...
Anyways, it's annoying to see you criticize mods, if you need this for school then ask your teacher. Sorry if i seem rude but it's cringe .______.

Profile icon
[deleted]

I did ask my teacher, they said to keep creating new accounts to request that they please stop banning me. If I keep getting banned then I will fail my class @pepelaugh

Profile icon
[deleted]

But the mods have gone a bit overboard @pepelaugh

Profile icon

@IHateUrGutsRepl 🤡 oh how the turn tables...
dont blame mods everytime smh

Profile icon
[deleted]

Well they said it was all my fault and they didn't give me an f'ing chance to explain myself they insta-banned me. @pepelaugh

Profile icon

@IHateUrGutsRepl BC of what you said. Okay im out no point arguing, nothing's getting to you cya and have a good day.

Profile icon
[deleted]

@codelongandpros plz.... plz make sure I don't get re-banned bro, plz @pepelaugh

Profile icon
[deleted]

who insulted who first? answer: that guy. I was just defending myself man. @pepelaugh

Profile icon
fuzzyastrocat

@IHateUrGutsRepl It's never ok to fight back even when others try to fight you. Full-stop. (I don't mean that in a physical sense, obviously if someone is trying to physically harm you then do something, but for something virtual like repl talk it's not ok.)

If you really are doing this for school (which it's odd that you're just now mentioning this, but ok) then tell the mods that and have your teacher contact them as well.

@HyperGamerStuds You got banned for a reason, right?

Profile icon
[deleted]

I got banned for an argument, but I didn't say anything vulgar or nsfw, I was trying to defend myself, and I got banned as a result, and keep getting re-banned for it, even though I have to use repl.it for my computer science class @CodeLongAndPros

Profile icon

@HyperGamerStuds But you don't have to use repl talk for your compsi class.

@HyperGamerStuds you did kinda swear, which breaks rules of repl.it. I saw the link(https://repl.it/talk/share/Leroy01010-we-are-really-going-to-miss/59408/311351) and there you used Stu*** which counts as a swear. And if that doesn't count then on this page u basically used a short form of the f word:

Hey, you're doing a great job. Please, PLEASE don't give up on this project and make it dead, you're going to an AMAZING start! If you're ever having any trouble, I'll be here for encouraging support (Cause I can't code lol) but this project can become big. You might be able to create this into an IO game!

Keep up the unbelievable work!

There are a lot of of people with curse words in their names, i've been trying to trap them, but there is too many, so I would like you to implement anti-curse into the name

Profile icon
JasonLiu19
Profile icon
fuzzyastrocat

@JasonLiu19 Yeah, that is an issue. It's easy to make it not show the curse word for others, but to make it do that for everyone (including the person who has the curse word in the name) will require a new protocol.

Profile icon
fuzzyastrocat

@conkon300 That's tricky... because you can't collide with a roof, there's no way to hit it as of now. I haven't had any time to work on this recently, but that is on a list of things todo.

Profile icon
conkon300

@fuzzyastrocat Stairs could help, there could be platforms to stand on too!!!
Also, please add a way to stop players from having curse words in their names too, thanks!

Profile icon
fuzzyastrocat

@conkon300 Stairs wouldn't help the aforementioned problem, but they are planned for the reason of platforms.

The curse words in their names is problematic for reasons I won't list here, but it's planned when I get time to work on this.

Profile icon
conkon300

@fuzzyastrocat maybe you could also add ways to get better materials, like mines hidden in the desert, and you could use shovels to dig holes in the ground to find them or something like that!!!!!!!!!

Profile icon
fuzzyastrocat

@conkon300 Much of what you've suggested here is planned. I only have so much time to implement it sadly :P

Profile icon
conkon300

@fuzzyastrocat Could you also add landmarks in the desert, so we don't get lost as easily?

Profile icon
fuzzyastrocat

@conkon300 [as I was about to respond to your previous comment] The desert is not designed to be traveled into, since it will later be replaced with multiple biomes. That hasn't been implemented yet however.

Profile icon
conkon300

@fuzzyastrocat I guess that explains the endless desert then!

Profile icon
conkon300

@fuzzyastrocat Maybe in the different biomes, you could add food and water, as this is a survival game, as you said in your first post!

Profile icon
conkon300

@fuzzyastrocat btw, you missed some stacked crafting tables in your sweep of the map.

Profile icon
fuzzyastrocat

@conkon300 Planned! :D

@TristanC3 This page describes the update and that alone. I would suggest reading the original talk post, as this update post instructs.

Profile icon
Orca20

How do I craft something? Like for example, an axe? How do I get it once I get enough materials?

Profile icon
fuzzyastrocat

@Orca20 Once you have the required materials, a button should appear in the upper left corner depicting the item. Click on the button and the item should now be in your inventory (bottom row).

Profile icon
Orca20

@fuzzyastrocat Yeah ok it's interesting... I got a pick axe, still can't get stone though.

Profile icon
fuzzyastrocat

@Orca20 Is the pickaxe active or is the saw active? Make sure to click on the pickaxe in your inventory to activate it. If it is active, then I'm not sure why you can't get stone.

Profile icon
Orca20

@fuzzyastrocat The pickaxe is active. Also, why do the things you can buy just not appear sometimes? It usually just gives me a block. Just this, and nothing more.

Profile icon
Orca20

@fuzzyastrocat oof it just glitched out.

Profile icon
fuzzyastrocat

@Orca20 Something is weird with your system, I can't replicate any of these behaviors you're describing but I'll look into it. (Also, for the things you can't place: are you next to a workbench? Most higher-level items require that you be next to a workbench that has already been placed.)

@fuzzyastrocat I was I think.

I have a suggestion. Maybe we could have some monsters, swords, doors, and metal tools. This is amazing though!

Profile icon
fuzzyastrocat

@FrancisPan

  • I don't plan to add monsters since this game isn't about conflict or violence, same goes for swords
  • Doors are certainly planned, as are many more tools, however you've stumbled across a rather old and fairly dead project as I myself aren't around here often anymore

DynamicSquid

Hi, quick question about lang dev. In a bytecode interpreted lang, does each function have its own stack? Or is there just one global stack?

Profile icon
fuzzyastrocat

@DynamicSquid This depends on the architecture. If you're using a stack-based VM, then there's only one stack and you keep track of the "frame base" (bottom of the current stack, whether that be global or function or etc) to "create" a new stack for function calls. In a register-based VM (or even in a weirdly made stack VM), you could in theory design it so that each function gets its own stack, which will make life easier, but that will be inefficient allocation-wise.

@fuzzyastrocat Gotcha, thanks!

@Lethdev2019 The nature of this game doesn't lend well to mobile devices. It requires many keys (and will require more in the future), so half the device's screen would be taken up with buttons to represent the keys and that wouldn't be nice.

Fuzzy I just thought of a new language idea. What if a language was low-level like C, but also had a lot of support for metaprogramming?

Python and Ruby have support for metaprogramming, but they're high level. Lisp is low level and has metaprogramming, but the syntax isn't the best, and I want some features of C mixed in.

Would that be a good idea?

Profile icon
fuzzyastrocat

@DynamicSquid

Lisp is low level

wut

Now, yes, that would be cool. The reason it doesn't exist is because metaprogramming (I'm assuming you're talking about things like Python's eval, not macros) only really works well in an interpreted language. Why? Well, because that self-evaluation function has to run the whole interpreter/compiler from within itself. That's easy with an interpreter (since interpret is probably just a function in your code), but with a compiler? You now have to emit instructions in the executable to run the compiler executable with some kind of dummy file (or allow the compiler to take stdin input) and then run the compiler's executable output. You can see how that can get complicated.

And, more importantly, the new executable will be unable to interface with code that's in the main file (so x = 1; eval("x = 2"); won't change x) which is removes a lot of metaprogramming's power.

Profile icon
DynamicSquid

@fuzzyastrocat Ah okay. Wait so Lisp isnt low level?

Profile icon
fuzzyastrocat

@DynamicSquid Definitely not! Lisp was the first high-level language. (Some might call FORTRAN the first high-level language, and at the time it was, but by modern standards I don't consider it a high-level language.)
