The future of Ghacks (2018)

Martin Brinkmann over at ghacks.net has posted an essay about his site moving forward in 2018.  I've actually been appreciating ghacks more lately.  Definitely a site that should be in your bookmarks for daily reading and deserving of your support.


Photographer Tutorial Company Release Satire Version for Pirates

When it comes to content producers reacting to the pirating of their works, we've seen just about every reaction possible... They decided to release a version of Photographing the World 3 on several torrent sites a few days before it went to retail, but the version they released was much different than the actual product. It was close enough to the real thing that many people were left wondering just what the hell was going on, but ridiculous enough that it's downright funny.  “The whole time we were thinking: ‘This isn’t even on the market yet!

Artists: Share your artwork with the forum!

Actually let me sort of force someone else to go first by sharing some photos of the paintings that made me think to start this thread.
Long time DC member cranioscopical recently mentioned a website he had made for the paintings of his wife (Barbara Bickell),  and I was blown away by them.

Those who would find it daunting to create their own web site from scratch. Those who would find it too expensive to pay an expert to create a web site. Those whose time is at a premium.

I have flirted with some ideas of games based on real world large-scale map data, so this is pretty cool news.

The search firm is both opening its Maps platform's real-time data and offering new software toolkits that will help developers build games based on that data. The software includes both a kit to translate map info to the Unity game engine as well as another to help make games using that location data.
