May 7 2016 Discord Meeting
Seneca37, Gnomey, Anonytroll, 10Kaziem
Styling updates coming in over the next week.
The main website menu got rearranged. The new menu coming over will remove the facebook/tumblr buttons; external links will be moved to the Media menu for now:
Some of the pages linked in the main menu need rewriting or updating:
- Project History (blank, awaiting fill-in)
- Meet the Team (blank, awaiting fill-in)
- About the Project
- FAQ (move some of the information from here to About)
- Handbook (panel-style improvements)
- Update release notes so the main release notes page displays the content of the most recent notes
- Meetings + IRC (fix line spacings) (move to community)
Location of all the uploaded media is in admin.
Some screenshots would be nice to put in the pages for visual interest
Responsive images (?)
Mass uploader is desired!
Request was made to put a way to upload viewable images to asset claims.
The assortment of textures is ready to begin working on test ESPs, but we could possibly also use some more textures in the land of:
Yellow/purple colour scheme
Dres inorganic architecture - concrete? Inclusions such as shells, coral, pottery fragments, adobe
Dres organic architecture - saltstrap leaves, bug shells (medium and small), bug legs as poles.
Incorporating bugs and saltstrap as “the materials that come to hand”
Sounds-- include the howling bamboo, “wind chimes” that crackle or clack as strings of beads/shells
Wind-animated decor or flags, lamellophones, clawbells, flora?
Dres use very little metal
Grass blade (hardened razor grass)
(claw bells as seed pods)
The idea of using “primitive materials” but, by careful and traditional means, raising the creation of something into making something elegant. In other words, anyone can make a “grass blade” but only the dres do it well. Grass blades -- reed -- wind instruments
Howling wind flutes
Bug stomach water bottles
