Ideas for future addons and sequels

So who have ever thought about this?

I have! If it's easy to fix, why not just do it?

CPU load bar fix?

Postby Acid_Burn » Sun Sep 16, 2007 11:11 am

I've known and p|ayed uplink for years now,
and since patch 1.54 the on|y thing that bugs
me is the blue colour of the CPU-load bar in the t0p of the screen.

:idea: If you colour the v3rtices of this bar with one of the darker colours used in the active theme, the bar would a|ways f!t right in. :idea:

I know thi5 is hardly any game improvement at 4ll, but up|ink is already a nearly perfect game, so why not touch this little
issue up for the next p4tch?

It is not cool to use numbers for letters

Montyphy is the coolest because he's a pure-letterer.

I don't think he ripped off Hackers - I believe the girl's monicker was Acid Burns. With an S.
This young man just had the exact same idea, an absolute coincidence, but without an S. I mean, stranger things have happened!

Also, using numbers as letters is not just "not cool", it's also annoying and stupid.

And no, the CPU bar's colour does not bother me, and it will continue to not bother me until it turns pink.

Oh yes, her name is "Acid Burn". Not "Acid Burns".

The irony is astounding.

>What irony???<

I have not ripped a name off any hacker, as this is a matter
of borrowing from a fictive universe.

I don't see the major problem here, the issue is as i posted,
with the CPU bar. If you just want to flame around or
have your primitive philosophies confirmed, buy a gossip magasine
or something.


Also, using numbers as letters is not just "not cool", it's also annoying and stupid.


T4, you are just as annoying and stupid.
... And to be honest, i very much doubt anyone will consider
yourself as being cool.

I doubt the bar will ever turn pink, but with the entire interface in
pink, perhaps it wouldn't look so bad neither.

People like yourselves should age beyond your
teenage years before you reply like this.

But heck. I hope i didn't offend any of you guys,
really i don't see why you think this is a big problem.
If my use of numbers for letters as an artistic touch in
my first post in the forums is a big problem to you, you
probably have a lot of problems.

T4 and Rkiver, i saw your posts in some other threads
(yes, you're that popular) - and i think you're being
pessimistic, narrowminded and arrogant.
I really shouldn't be wasting my time on people like you,
but instead of making things worse by being just as bad
to a newcomer in the forums as other uplink fans,
perhaps you should just consider the following:

Make some friends instead, lose weight, enroll in college and stop drinking/doing drugs/do bad looking graffitti etc.

No one said your placement of random numbers was a "big problem". However, it does make your post more difficult to read normally.

Also, it can hardly be called an "artistic touch" if what you're doing is also being done by thousands of 12-year old wannabes. Try doing something more original.

Nobody said it was a big problem, but as the first,
and only 2 responses didn't comment on the subject
but rather how i chose to, moderately swap numbers
with letters, it seems to be somewhat of a problem, to them at least.

So who said 12yr old wannabees (wannabe what exactly?)
don't do artistic touches.

Wait a moment. I don't want to waste my time on you guys.
Have a nice life(?) :D

I never said you ripped of a hacker, re-read my post you idiot. I said you ripped off Hackers, as in the movie.


As for "Make some friends instead, lose weight, enroll in college and stop drinking/doing drugs/do bad looking graffitti etc."

Oh how amusing. Let's do the list one more time.

Married, happily to a drop dead gorgeous woman. Finished school and uni some years ago. Working full time, have a good life, large circle of friends, visit the UK once a year usually to hang out with some who I originally met on here. Take what you want from that, but the only one who appears to need anything is you needing to the following: http://sw.deri.org/~matteo/welcome.php

sorry to bump!

1) If it bugs you DL a new theme
2) Your use of number butchers the effectiveness of the search tool
3) You're still an idiot for all the above posted reasons
4) The "fat and ugly" insults to describe the majority of net-using people doesnt work. It's been beaten down by the players of multiple games...The net isn't a 'nerd domain' anymore...grow up
