Need something from the Webmaster in his function as Webmaster or Mentor? Want to hear advise? Need comment? Well, whatever you do want - post here to get my attention!

Hey Arti I thought this would be a bit more appropriate way of getting your attention than a PM  :grin:  any way I believe I have corrected all miss spellings (or at least spellcheck thinks so) and I fixed all the its,

Now Im still a littel reluctant to give up on Praesidium, and would like to hear why it dosen't fit before I delete it and think of something else ( but if you don't want to explain I'll understand and delete it any way) so yeah whenever you got the time just hop over and.....well I guess I don't have to explain it to the Webmaster  :grin:

Hello Mentor!

I finally managed to finish the spell I talked to you about a few weeks ago and seeing as you have canceled your two-weekly update I was wondering if you could take a quick look over it.  It has already recieved a URI from the combined efforts of Mina and Marvin which was integrated before I completed the spell.  The link can be found http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,10836.0.html (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,10836.0.html)

Hey Art!  Finally finished my dog(after much procrastination) Seeing as Jonael isn't around, I was wondering if you could take a look.  It can be found here (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,10895.msg125922.html#msg125922)

hey arti, i think i have a picture that is 60 by 60. I just need to know, do I have to get one drawn by an artist like the others?

If so, who would I contact about that. I read something about Artists that could be hired for such a job.

Hi there,

I've posted a few questions on a small issue concerning the Manthrian coastline and visualisation of the Fields of Aurium at the detailed Manthrian Map. Can you take a look at it?

Here you'll find (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,11027.0.html) the thread!

Hey Arti, long time no see. Ok I've resurected the Melorael and I belive I changed all the telepathy to power of the unseen gods. So I hope every things check out and cant wait to get back into the flow of things.

I've started work on the "Founder" of the Mithral Minnow as mentioned in my Aesthran entry. If I could get your input here (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,11036.msg127685/topicseen.html#new) that would be greatly appreciated. The Innkeeper is also being worked on and should be up... in the future (not putting any timelines on this :P)

Goodday dear Sage,

in the poetry forum awaits a poem by Letitia, to me it's ready for uploading, but I'd like to have your approval. She has my blessing.

In the Misc. forum, we're discussing music. For musical instruments, I've created a template because one of our newbies, Petros, is playing around with them. Could you copy/paste that clearly visible in the thread at the top of the forum, for future reference? Much obliged, yours kindly,

Gean

Do you know, if there is a way to avoid the stickies to move around when somebody posts in them?
I would like to have the guidelines (in the cosm.forum) always in the first place, but the current actual threads sticky as well.

And could you please make Takór moderator as well (or replace Talia), Takór is the one who is knowledgable in religions.

To his amazement, Artimidor find upon entering his study a large fat Chorakee bird rummaging through his papers in search for food. Even stranger, someone attched a big stack of research papers (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,11037) on it's back. "Gee..." Artimidor said. "I wonder what they want me to do with this..."

Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Miraran Tehuriden on 19 May 2008, 06:04:55
I think you have your definitions inversed.. a ',' is a decimal point, while a '.' is a millium, applied every thousandfold (in other words, after every third digit)


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Smee on 19 May 2008, 06:10:43
How entirely weird. Never heard of that!

I know we shouldn't be discussing in here, but all mathematics as I have been taught a . is a decimal point. i.e 3.14159 for Pi. And a , is a thousands seperator.

Is this an American thing, or everywhere-but-UK thing, or simply a preference and either is correct?

EDIT :

Lol, unless it's the Santharian way of doing it? That didn't occur to me.


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Miraran Tehuriden on 19 May 2008, 06:11:14

Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Ta`lia of the Seven Jewels on 19 May 2008, 07:27:23
Sorry Art for cluttering your bellring..

Pi is 3,14  all my life long ... and if  -  in an online money tranfer  - I put a dot instead of a comma I fear my money is gone ;)


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Bard Judith on 19 May 2008, 10:42:28
Perhaps it is a Continental difference?

Us Canucks  are taught to record money this way:

$ 10,234.50   would be ten thousand, two hundred and thirty-four dollars and fifty cents.

A comma separates thousands, while a dot indicates anything under a dollar (or a hundredth, I guess)  We write checks and do math the same way...

Pi = 3.1415 etc.!   Oh, and a dot is also an abbreviation or a period or a full stop...  :)


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 19 May 2008, 15:04:18
This is country specific - so maybe if you view my profile the Forum takes my personal settings to display the page.

In various countries in Europe you write 10.000,00 and in Switzeland you even write 10'000.00... Just have a look at your system settings on your computer (Region Settings) and you'll see that how to write numbers is definitely not a universal thing ;)


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Mannix on 19 May 2008, 17:33:49
Actually, supposedly, we aren't meant to use comma any more, or dot for that matter.  Well at least not in Australia.


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Nsikigan Ho´Tonanese Yourth on 19 May 2008, 21:05:22
Then how do you show decimals (in America and Canada . ) or thousands markers (in america , ) in Australia?


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Mannix on 19 May 2008, 21:12:09
Oh, you use dots for decimals, you just don't use anything for thousands markers... well I do sometimes, my english upbringing I guess. ;)


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 19 May 2008, 21:13:59
Some countries just add spaces instead as I've seen in my Windows regional settings...

Unfortunately 2007 was also overshadowed partly by some unnecessary and at times even project endangering disputes, which we are hopefully not prone to repeat. Furthermore the lack of constructive comments here and there .....

I don't feel confident enough anymore to be able to do a moderator's work, despite my knowledge what religious and cosmological things concerns, or of Caelereth in general. Please resolve myself from this responsibility.

Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Bard Judith on 05 June 2008, 09:51:13
Art dear, I think I've asked this before, but what program and what icons do you use to create the greyscale maps?  It's becoming obvious that detailed maps of areas are more and more important to developers, and one person can't handle that all by himself.  I'm going to be having a lot more free time quite shortly, after exams are over, and I'd like to rub the dust off my tablet and get back into doing some graphics for Santharia.

Could you let me know, and/or send me the files you have with the existing trees, houses, and other icons? 

Hugs,
Judith


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 05 June 2008, 15:17:57
More graphics for Santharia would be great, Judy - also don't forget that there are some pics you made which are still not on the site yet and which would only need a little updating (e.g. that Nybelmar guy etc.)

I use Photoshop to make the maps - don't know if your program can read PSD files and interpret the layers accordingly. I can put up a file with various house icons etc. which you can download. You've done that Silvermarshes map nicely back then, though I've made some final adjustments there, but in general this worked out greatly. As you can see in the Scattersand Shoals thread I have blown up the whole Santharian map so that it matches the Manthrian size. So if you want to do a certain section, I could crop that for you and you could draw over it.

And as for Mira's comment, well...(starts making plans to develop Santharian herbicides)

But I forgive everybody because I'm so happy to be back on line--even Mike--so there is a general amnesty THIS time.

Now, what'd I miss...?!

Post by: Ta`lia of the Seven Jewels on 10 June 2008, 20:55:17
Could it be, that you have moved Chondra slightly when you did the Manthrian map? I have difficulties when I compare the distances on both maps (one reference given). It is anyway difficult to do exact messurements , with all the  rounding errors adding.. ??


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 10 June 2008, 21:02:11
I'm not aware of moving it, but it might be that there was a certain reason for it. Chrondra surely has grown in size at the larger map. So it all might depends on where you measure it as well. You can add a bunch of dozen strals I assume at any rate due to the size of the city.


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Ta`lia of the Seven Jewels on 11 June 2008, 00:03:20
These measurements are incredible susceptible for rounding errors, or better it depends where exactly I put the pen on the map, the bigger the worse. I didn't think that the difference is up to 15% . Hopefully I will not ever fall in the hands of an Avennorian merchant who calculated his caravans wrongly because of these errors! ;)

Did you say, tha Manthria map has the same size - the same pixel resolution than the monstermap?


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 11 June 2008, 01:51:38
Yes, the monster map shows Manthria 1:1 on it (it is actually half transparent on it). So if you look at that and make the measurements there that is ideal.


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Ta`lia of the Seven Jewels on 11 June 2008, 02:52:24
Then I take that one from now on, for the bigger places, it is easier to pin down where the cities are.

You don't have other maps hiding somewhere ?

The smaller Northern Sarvonian maps have another resolution, right?


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 11 June 2008, 02:56:50
Yeah, but there exists a Northern Sarvonian monster map as well since a few weeks as requested by Azhira. It's also in Smee's map making thread, see here (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,12600.msg150426.html#msg150426).


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Ta`lia of the Seven Jewels on 11 June 2008, 03:11:02
Yes, thank you, I looked for it, but didn't find it , maybe you added it later -- or I have been too tired.

Edit: i have been tired, just realised I had it already!


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Ta`lia of the Seven Jewels on 11 June 2008, 04:46:24
Has this northern Sarvonian MM the same resolution as the SMM?


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 11 June 2008, 14:55:24
What's the SMM? :huh: Northern and Southern Sarvonian Monster Maps at any rate have the same resolution. You could put them together. I only didn't do that because opening the file alone would be severe stress on a computers RAM resources :)


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Miraran Tehuriden on 12 June 2008, 01:25:16
i think its 'Southern Monster Map'....


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Alysse the Likely on 12 June 2008, 03:29:24
Art, I've found a place on the Northern Sarvonian map where we can locate Lu'Weilima (since it's not actually ON the map itself)

Just above where it says "Celeste Lowlands" (right over the "ste" of "Celeste") is  a cluster of 3 mountains. According to the entry,

 "[Lu'weilima] can be found in the Celeste Lowlands of Northern Sarvonia in the land controlled by the Helvet'ine Kuglim ("Brave Helvet's Tribe"), perched upon the middle hill of a range of three hills known as Beinaz'mur or Three Sisters."

So we could set it on the center mountain there.

Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 12 June 2008, 03:32:00
Ok, Alysse - I'll see to add it the Northern Sarvonian map in question accordingly soon :)

Wouldn't it be helpful to link the Cosmology forum  to its templates as well as it is done for every other  board (with  templates)? There are five templates there were other boards have just one to present...

Maybe this board would be visited a bit more often and the templates noticed.

"Create Cosmol. Entries"  would do, there doesn't need to be an extra link for Religions or Myths.

The link is here : http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,11376.0.html

That would be a way to show the appreciation for the work done there as well.


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Azhira Styralias on 16 July 2008, 03:12:01
I agree with Talia, Arti. I am enjoying my time in the Cosmo Forum. It needs a link to it from the main page.


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 16 July 2008, 03:25:00
Ok, was added in the Entry Templates, and the link is called "Create Gods, Cosmology and Myths". A bit lengthy, I know, but Gods, Cosmology and Myths aren't the same thing, and now it's all mentioned there.


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Takór Salenár on 16 July 2008, 05:06:51
Thank you. I does look now a bit lengthy though with the two lines. What about just writing

Create Gods, Myths ...

It would hint at more as well and be not as long as now. But it is up to you. I don't mind.

As far as I know her e-mail address at her team page should still be valid. At least I hope so. Her name regularly pops up on MSN though in case you have MSN. I've made several attempts to reactivate her in the past, but not to much avail.  :undecided:

Is there any chance that you can create a map centered on the Wood Forest in the North? The woods south of the Themed'lon and surrounding lands. I'd like to study that area for a future entry on those woods. The current maps together do not show a complete picture of that region. Thanks!

Well, I don't really have the time resources to work on map projects at the moment, Azhira. Besides, once I do get to do a map, the region should ideally be prepared beforehand, with woods, rivers, mountains, towns and villages and possible extras already put on a sketch (see the Monster Map I refer to every now and then) - just the way the developers in that region like it to have their ideas integrated. Then I could just use that as the source material and base the map on that. Otherwise I would just need to guess what to draw on the map.


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Bard Judith on 26 July 2008, 17:11:55
What I'd do, Az, is go ahead and make a rough sketch as a developer's aid.  Post it in the appropriate area and make sure that all the other Northerners have a chance to put their two sans' worth in.  Extrapolate from the large features (there's a mountain, there's a bay - doubtless a stream runs down from one to t'other!  And so on...) to create forests, barrens, and more.   I for one find this one of my favourite dev activities, so feel free to ask...

This link is very helpful for topographical ideas which make areas much richer! http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,3780.0.html (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,3780.0.html)  Near the end there's a large list of 'evocative topographical features' which speak for themselves.  Enjoy...

Post by: Azhira Styralias on 01 August 2008, 20:36:48
I had a question, Arti...

Is it easier for you when the color is removed from the entries when you go to update them? I was just thinking of some ways to make the entries easier to edit and integrate...or maybe I'm way off... :huh:


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Miraran Tehuriden on 01 August 2008, 20:50:23
I dont think it matter that much, as he doesnt actually copy the internal code of your entries anyway. It has to be converted to html code for the site, and i think that's done manually..


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 01 August 2008, 21:01:34
Yeah, I just take the text itself, the colour codes don't really matter much. So that's ok, no need to worry! :)


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Azhira Styralias on 11 August 2008, 08:25:26
Arti, can your nomenclature machine spit out half-orcen names for the Kaaer? What do you need to do that? I would like heavy emphasis on the first few syllables, with perhaps a single letter to start:

Example: T'char, K'lag, U'trom, H'jal etc...

What my tribe needs is some defined nomenclature as I have been kind of random with names up until now and alot of their names are inconsistent...for example, I absolutely hate the name Temejin Tartar... :P

P.S. - Expect some heavy revision on all of my Kaaer related entries if I can get this done... :cool:


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Bard Judith on 11 August 2008, 13:26:37
The program needs fodder first.  You'd have to provide a list of syllables, with the rules, that can be input into the machine - but inputting involves a lot of plain dog-work and Art has a lot on his plate already. 

Generally we prefer specialists to take responsibility for their languages, and you seem to know what you want already.  In which case I'd suggest that you'd get better results - and be able to tweak them yourself - if you downloaded the name generator and put the info in and played around with the generator options.  It's not complicated, really!

Set 'first syllables' as    T'     Gh'    A'   Gr'    and so on, so that the machine has the apostrophes associated and will generate the names with them in the right place.
Then set 'second syllables' as   char    lag    gun   jal    trom    etc.  (I *think* case is sensitive)....    Then choose the 'two-syllable' option only (though I would run a few one and three for variety) and hit Generate.

 You'll get the odd name like    T'trom  or  Gr'grag from that, but you can simply not accept them from the raw name list that the program will then spit out.   Move over all the names you want saved, and you'll have your name list!

You can select for 'male' and 'female' syllables or simply choose them by hand later depending on the feel of the finished name - or perhaps there really isn't a difference as far as this tribe is concerned!   There seems to be a strong euro-centric bias for 'a', 'ae', 'l', and so on in feminine names for most of the human tribes (yep, me too!) but the orcs will doubtless have very different criteria...


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 11 August 2008, 14:45:13
Yeah, Judy summarized it pretty well. If I have syllables (see Garret's Kyranian entry where she has done it) - I can let the program do the work. Important is especially to make sure that the male and female names can be distinguished. So usually the ending syllables have to differ remarkably, though maybe at an (half-)orcish tribe it could be the other way round and the beginning syllable defines the gender (e.g. eginnings with vocals = female, consonants = male, ending valid for both). So you can play around with quite a bunch of funny ideas. Important is that I get a list of syllables or word parts :)

Thanks Judy and Arti...I don't mean to create more work for you Arti. I did not realize that the naming machine could be used by anyone. I thought it was a special Artimidor Magic Tool only. :lol: Where can I download it and I can get to creating my own names?

I can make a new install version, which you can then download and use.  Some things have been improved considerably since the first versions. Give me a few hours and you can download it.

P.S. An install version is only to be used on fresh installs though - people who want to update existing versions need to send me their databases so that I can take the stuff that was made with it and integrate it.

Hey, Arti. I've been 'messing about' with designs for new map buildings etc. Whaddya think?
I know it needs shading, but do you think it will fit in ok on a map?

(http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/nn15/harleyrider_2008/th_diy-stonehenge-kit-1.jpg) (http://s300.photobucket.com/albums/nn15/harleyrider_2008/?action=view&current=diy-stonehenge-kit-1.jpg)


Click to enlarge!

Basically, all I did was find a suitable image of Stonehenge and outline it in black, then deleted all the excess stuff. Simple.


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 25 October 2008, 15:34:59
That's not so easy to say.

Because once you change the resolution to fit on a map in the style we made, the appearance of these stones will change as well. Besides, it needs to blend into the background. So whenever I try to use an element I first scale it down, put it on a map background, redraw the lines and try to put some colour in and then shadows. You always need to have an eye on the final result if you start with it, you know. It's a bit tricky...


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Tharoc Wargrider on 25 October 2008, 19:37:13
Yeah, I kinda realised the reduction issue a little too late. I did this in MS Paint as I haven't got the hang of Photoshop yet, but when I do I'll try again. Like you say, it's all a case of trial and error.

Anyway, good luck with the update!


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 25 October 2008, 23:03:00
Also you shouldn't do it with Paint, Tharoc, but directly in Photoshop. Put the source picture in an own layer, then make a transparent layer and draw on it, copying the lines from below. To see your drawn stuff better you could reduce the layer transparency of the layer below a bit as well. This way you get it all on an own independent layer. :)


Title: Re: Artimidor!

I know *I'm* gonna cave in and get Photoshop.  My artsy friends are all telling me it's amazing that I've done these pieces (Kuglimz Barbarian, Oloy, the various other Santharian characters, and recent stuff) on the simple programs I currently have, and they think I actually might improve with better tools...    so that's what Bry is thinking about for a Christmas prezzie for me....

Anyway, Judy - with Photoshop in your hands you will really get a very powerful tool! And I bet your already great works will improve even a step further. Things like shadows, textures, light effects, excellent layer handling etc. make it a real treat to draw with it or to rework pictures to get something new out of them by recylcling (that word again!) old picture parts! It would be great to see you having this great tool in your hands!  :thumbup:

Title: Re: Artimidor!

Errhm, yes, but of course!   I certainly think that sounds plausible, since my Fotoshoppe program was a gift from the highly reclusive but much-loved Kompyoetr Krackyr Faery, magically appearing as a sparkly icon on my desktop and with the relevant 'fyels' all in the proper places.  I am forced to assume that the 'Manyual Scroll' was too heavy for her to carry, so I shall have to resort to supplications to the Deities of Onlyne-resaerch for further assistance. 

Do you think, does one need to sacrifice anything, or does sincerity and pureness of heart help?  In the latter case, I'm stuck....

I wanted to ask, if I could update my teampage, adding those entries which are written with an Santharian alter ego of me, e.g.

Lady Shiana ( by A.P. Federkiel)

Then I can correct some other things as well, repair a missing link and add the last poem.

I would try to do it myself and then upload it on the stuff server where you can check it before putting it on the site again.

Is that ok?

Lists in general aren't very complicated to do - there's the "Insert List" button at the right end of the second row at the "Post Reply" screen, and it starts a list, you just need to add your list items between each [li ] and [/li ], and if needed at more such [li ] thingies (just do it without the spaces).

Art, I read through the Styrash principles, but my mind resists in assisting me due to old problems with languages...

I want to form a word for a Babylonian tower, something like: Big home stretching for the sky.

And I want to re-use Kaizoúmetrá.

So I found:

Káizoúmetrá
Kái‘zoúm‘etrá

Kái - high
Zoúm - home
ethrán      ethrán      verb      extend; cross

Kái‘zoúm‘ethrán‘ylpheró

But grammatically I'm lost.

Please :)


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 15 July 2009, 03:32:07
The thing is that names of buildings, places and stuff don't really form sentences as such, or part of sentences for that matter. We've done that on various occasions - take the roots and reduce it to something that sounds cool. Aside from that it's also somewhat realistic, as in the course of the years using a good abbreviation helps the flow of the language.

So you might use e.g. Kái‘zoúm‘ethyró or Kái‘zethyró and explicitely state that it's an abbreviation for the correct sentence "Kái‘zoúm ethrí [for, no word yet] ylpheróthím".


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Ta`lia of the Seven Jewels on 15 July 2009, 04:34:40
   :dontgetit: sorry..

On top I made a mistake, it should be of course ypheró - sky.

"Kái‘zoúm ethrí  ylpheróthím".

Kái'zoúm  -- high home -- that's clear

ethrí  ??  Is that a form of the verb: (ethrán    ---    extend; cross) ?? an abbreviation?
or what do you mean with: [for, no word yet]

ypheróthím  -- ypheró  -  sky  -- but that ending - thim? What for is it?

Arti!

May I use your Slimers (http://www.santharia.com/bestiary/slimer.htm) for my Mists entry? I have already described the area as having strange mystical pools of ooze and as I was thinking of a beast to place in there, I happened across your Beast entry. Lo and behold, it its PERFECT. :thumbup: Its as if the Slimers were made for it.

Quote from the entry:

Quote
Territory. Slimers exist whereever they are created, be it in an alchemist's laboratory or, say, on a battlefield where magic was involved, and they live and spread there until their mysteriously created life cycle comes to an end. While mostly created as unwanted side effects of experiments that turned awry, it is not impossible that Slimers can be come to life in other places as well, like in spots where magic is abundant for the one reason or the other, be it in deep forests or far down below the earth's surface. Just like wizardleaf grows in places where wizards have died, natural magical pockets that come into contact with certain substances could bring Slimers into existence.

Yep, of course - wherever there is magic, there's also a good chance to slimers were generated! So yup, go for it, Azhira! :)

Art, could you please have a look here (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,13870.new.html#new) and tell me, if the slight change in the  history of the Avennorians would be ok?

Well, and generally, if that religion is ok or if I have to change it.

Can I have moderator rights in my Dev Schedule thread (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,12354.0.html) and my Bell Ring Thread? (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,12725.0.html)

You're now moderator of your Bell Ring Thread, Azhira, and you can edit your Dev Schedule thread as you can edit all other threads you've made. As you can see we don't have moderators for that Forum, so if you need something removed, just let me know.

Arti!

Umm...another request!

My research skills are severely lacking. I really must include the following creatures in my Mists entry:

Netherbeast (http://www.santharia.com/bestiary/netherbeasts.htm)

Wraith (http://www.santharia.com/bestiary/wraith.htm)

1. May I use your Netherbeast AND may I revise the entry as I did the mystran?

2. I'll contact Fox about the wraith.

Both entries mention the Netherworld and/or Osthemangar so they beg to be included in the Mists.

Hey Art. Got a spell revision of Shape Smoke. I don't really know who to ask, as the magic experts have disappeared. So if you could take a look that would be great.

Post by: Ta`lia of the Seven Jewels on 12 November 2009, 17:06:02
Hi Art, could you please have a look at this map (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,13964.msg174574/topicseen.html#new) and tell me, what you think has to be changed or what should be there?

Are you ok with the (c) Artimidor&Talia, I could remove the Talia  from that pic, there is not as much work from me in it as in the hopefully coming animated gif.

I'll add  a scale to it, but what do you think should be in there additional?

The Remusian Tribe?

 Nothing?

Arti, I need to upload the templates (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,13822.msg175306.html#msg175306) to the stuff directory but do not know how. Can you lend a hand or tell me how to do it?



Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Ta`lia of the Seven Jewels on 30 November 2009, 22:43:57
Why do you not just ask me but bother our busy sage?
You need a software to upload stuff. I'll send you the pass per PM.

Edit: Sent

You could post it also and I upload it, that is not what takes time.


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Ta`lia of the Seven Jewels on 01 December 2009, 00:29:02
Art, should I do the wallpapers still in 800x600 as well, or is that size out of date by now?


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 01 December 2009, 02:26:24
@Azhira: If you use Windows then you don't really need a special software to upload stuff. All you need is to open your Explorer (not Internet Explorer) and make sure that you see the address line on top (if you don't see it you can specify that you see it in the "Folder Options", tab "View"). Then type in ftp.santharia.com and hit ENTER. You will get a message that you don't have permissions. Then click in the menu on "File" and "Login As..." and specify the Login details which I think Talia already sent you. Then you have the Santharian Stuff folders right at hand. I make one with Azhira, and you can copy things in there by just dragging and dropping. Let me know if it works.

@Talia: Well, if you want you can do two other formats instead.

Arti, I know you are terribly busy right now. Get to the entry when you can. And perhaps when you finish it (or before you finish it), you might take a look at Elven Life and Development (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,14169.0.html)?

Don't stress yourself out too much. It is the holidays. Sorry to be putting so much on your plate--of course, you know how I am. @_@

Good day, Art.  I proposed something of an idea, and it seems to have caught the attention of some others who may wish to do it as a Team Project.  Could you cast your critical eye over here (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,14425.msg182279.html#msg182279) and let us know if it is something we may persue?

Thank you in advance. :)

Our dear newbie Sparkle caught this one:

"I was reading about the The Blue Glitra, a bird, when I noticed that all recorded lengths in the entry are measured in cm. It's in the beastiary. Perhaps somebody should change the measurements to Santharian?"

I gave her a thank-you and aura for that, and promised to post to your attention...

Hi Art, I got a problem with the stuff server.

I put up a  pic for the moon recently which worked fine (a gif)

http://www.stuff.santharia.com/talia/Moon/Moon_Orbit_Velocity.gif



Now I wanted to upload that old model stuff again (and I did, jpg), but it doesn't show in the posts itself, though the address is correct, the same as the moon pic has. If I try to open it in a new page, it says Error,



Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /talia/Model/model_disk_1.jpg on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/2.2.11 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.11 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635 PHP/5.2.9 Server at www.stuff.santharia.com Port 80

If I recall it right, then the others images in the  Moon folder did not work either, so that I had to attach them.

A try:

http://www.stuff.santharia.com/talia/Model/model_disk_1.jpg

Oh, now you get the error yourself!

???

Thanks!


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 08 October 2010, 15:35:15
That's pretty strange...

Well, whenever I upload something it works. The only thing I can suggest is to save the picture in a different way. It looks like there's a problem with the picture.

I've uploaded the same picture now in the very same folder, only with the name model_disk_2.jpg ...

And it works: http://www.stuff.santharia.com/talia/Model/model_disk_2.jpg

Hello Art,

do you have still somewhere in the depths of your comp the maps about which is spoken in this thread (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,9174.0.html)?

Or the one I can remember, where Guldor and the other island were named?

We need to come up with a solution for poor Ridgen and his icespear. One could be, that the Cyllahoi elves do live behind high mountains, or at least some of them.


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 28 October 2010, 05:41:14
I can offer the following pics I found on the server:

Cyhalloi Avis/Viresse (http://stuff.santharia.com/avis/cyhalloi-viresserevised.jpg)
Cyhalloi Climate (http://stuff.santharia.com/avis/cyhalloi_climate.jpg)
Cyhalloi Tribes (http://stuff.santharia.com/avis/cyhalloi_tribes.jpg)
Cyhalloi Isilhir (http://stuff.santharia.com/isilhir/cyhalloi.JPG)
Cyhalloi Viresse (http://stuff.santharia.com/viresse/cyhalloi-viresse.jpg)
Cyhalloi Climate Viresse (http://stuff.santharia.com/viresse/cyhalloi-viresse-climate.jpg)


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Ta`lia of the Seven Jewels on 28 October 2010, 06:42:03
Thanks a lot! This was quick :)

None of this maps is really helpful. I assume, that none is valid anymore, for there is nobody to write up orcs and these additional tribes up there right now. Ishilir has put the Cyhallrhim in another place than Viresse and the others, and his description, where his ulvur live does not fit to his map.

I hoped, that the map which tells us which island is which would be under these, so that we could located the Kasumarrii and from there the elves. The ulvur are in the farthest north. 

I'm asking  to find a place, where we could put some high mountains, so that Ridgen can keep his two weeks of darkness. Of course this should be mentioned in the entry about the elves also.

Is there another map and could we 'invent' a high mountain range?


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 29 October 2010, 02:32:33
I fear that's all I've got... Cyhalloi hasn't been developed that much in terms of geographical details. So mountain ranges can be put anywhere if you ask me, no problem with that.

Hey Art

I don't know if you noticed but I made these (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,14820.msg188637.html#msg188637) proposals for the old Glandorian tongue - and these (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,14812.msg188514.html#msg188514) about them in general - and Dek astutely and kindly pointed out that I should Bellring you to see if I'm going down acceptable lines here. I think his exact words were "Maybe you could ask Arti to look over it for you before you get too far along". So that's what I'm doing, yanking myself up short.

Thanks

Ath.

Hi Arti,

I am not sure, but I think that Ridgin got his first entry onsite in the last update, and so should probably be moved out of the Newbie Group and into the Apprentice Group whenever you get the chance to do so.

Post by: Ta`lia of the Seven Jewels on 14 February 2014, 05:18:17
Sorry for not answering your last question. I wanted the distances thread tidied up, but that can wait.

Right now, I wanted to ask, if you had something special in mind, when you renamed Greifenberg to Griffin's Marl? I have right now a hard time to find a reason, why it was so named. There is clay nearby, but Greifenmergel?? Griffin's Clay?   :dontgetit: :noidea:


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 14 February 2014, 05:42:27
I'm sure I didn't provide the name myself, because "marl" is not a word I'm very familiar with. It was probably Judy as it provides some diversity to the regular naming. But well, "marl" means lime-rich mud (see Wikipedia entry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marl)), and it's next to a clay pit, so why not?


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Ta`lia of the Seven Jewels on 14 February 2014, 06:01:08
I know by now all you can know about marl (Mergel) and the different types, believe me. And I mentioned myself, that there are claypits nearby, but what has a griffin to do with marl? griffin's marl? griffin's eyrie, griffin's mountain...

Well, I'll find a way around it, just wanted to know, if I missed something.

Thanks!


Title: Re: Artimidor!
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 14 February 2014, 15:36:37
Whenever I put names on the map, I don't necessarily have a whole story behind the idea, and often it's merely the sound of it that makes a name... Griffin's Marl sounds better than Griffin's Mountain, doesn't it? What he/she makes out of the name is up to the developer to look at the map and be inspired by the name... ;)
