@_discord_66237642349477888:t2bot.iodb0 About the name. The game mostly revolves around "Shader Fragments", and it around the demoscene and so called "demo effects". Things like "Shadow" and "Light" don't make much sense in this context. While I used "Wars" in the name, I don't quite like it as it's a negative word, and I want to make the game have a more positive approach. "ShaderCraft" might have been a better option, but "-craft" is also kinda overused. 16:21:13

@_discord_410553864610381835:t2bot.ioJesusalva “Shader Fragments” imo is a game name by itself XD 17:45:26
@_discord_235162686856495104:t2bot.ioPat how about 'forge'? shader forge? 18:08:25
@_discord_66237642349477888:t2bot.iodb0 Haha true 😄 21:08:57
@_discord_66237642349477888:t2bot.iodb0 That one has potential! 21:09:04
@_discord_66237642349477888:t2bot.iodb0 But I think Fragment Forge is even better! (Or is Framents Forge better?) 21:19:11

@_discord_66237642349477888:t2bot.iodb0 So I created my first ever shader fragment and I added it to a card. I think it looks best in the full-card, but if I create more complex shaders, it might look too busy

OTOH, using a smaller "art" window, is nowhere near as impressive. But it could also be that my card layout just sux 🙂 WHat do you think?

@_discord_96633148003065856:t2bot.iosnowdrop db0 Agree that it looks too busy with the first (full ones), but also a lot better than the partial. I would try full ones and no animation, or full ones and animation only when you drop the card in table or only when you zoom in, or full ones but with one smaller area, of aprox 20% or so that was animated while rest of it was still... 08:47:50
@_discord_96633148003065856:t2bot.iosnowdrop db0 Part of the problem with busy look is the range of colors you cycle between. If thats limited per card it will probably be much easier on the eyes. 08:48:38

@_discord_66237642349477888:t2bot.iodb0 With a better shader, it looks very cool. And it's not so busy since not all cards you have will be shaders anyway. E.g. it might look like this 13:31:01

@_discord_66237642349477888:t2bot.iodb0 Finally got a mandelbrot shader ^_^ 18:13:02
@_discord_96633148003065856:t2bot.iosnowdrop looks nice 21:56:11
@_discord_96633148003065856:t2bot.iosnowdrop personally id still prefer to have them as still images in hand, and maybe play it once on table. 21:56:30
@_discord_96633148003065856:t2bot.iosnowdrop but highly subjective. 21:56:46
@_discord_66237642349477888:t2bot.iodb0 I'm looking to see if there's a way to pause the shaders somehow, and if I find it, I'll make it an option 22:35:03

@_discord_66237642349477888:t2bot.iodb0 And one last shader before I go to bed 🙂 01:02:08
@_discord_96633148003065856:t2bot.iosnowdrop looks great 08:39:14

@_discord_66237642349477888:t2bot.iodb0 What I love about using Shaders as art, is that I can adjust their look during runtime, making every card unique. These are all the same shader, just with different textures and variables 05:41:44
