  • Alchemy formulas and crafting diagrams can be "pinned", meaning all components and ingredients required to make them will be conveniently marked in the Shop panel.

Fuck yesssssssssss

DJMAX Trilogy, I guess. It's 7 years old which isn't THAT old but for a rhythm game that might as well be dead as shit. I still play it at least once or twice a month.

@shadowvirus: These look fucking awesome. That MS one has my vote, personally.

... what Ubisoft game is set in Korea, though? Did I miss something?

@mellotronrules: Glad you linked to it because I would have. Fan-fucking-tastic album. Probably my favorite this year so far.

Here's some of my standouts from 2015 right now:

@jman240: Putting it in a spoiler block for not making so long on the page.

  • Marquee Selection tool
  • Made a rectangle
  • Edit > Stroke
  • Stroke settings are 2px, Inside, Black
  • Marquee Selection tool
  • Made a smaller rectangle inside the now-made bordered rectangle, making sure it's centered inside relative to the bordered rectangle.
  • Fill (Edit > Fill or Alt+Backspace)

How big the rectangle is and everything--that's all just winging it, more or less. At some point, your knowledge of design rules and stuff will make it so you can just kinda eye that stuff. I rarely go by numbers or anything, I just do what feels/looks right.

@jman240: I create my own guides, though for this it was just creating a horizontal/vertical center guide. Everything's spaced because the text is centered (with the anchor points on the center guides) and same for the boxes and stuff. To be honest, there's not much to it. It just takes a good understanding of graphic design basics and a general idea for what "look" you want to go for. You could very easily do what I did in an older version of Photoshop. It's not about the tools, but what you do with 'em!

I don't use it because I hate the addition of TypeKit, but the latest version of Photoshop has the Smart Guides from iD in it, now. If you're reliant on those, you could upgrade to that and you'll be fine. It's more beneficial for you, in the long run, to study up a bit on the stuff I mentioned earlier instead, though.

@jman240: Vectors are like poison to me. Photoshop all the way!

Also nobody listen to @zombiepie. He's just cranky because he has to deal with kids all day. They move around and they're so exciteable and shit--he wants a world where everything just stands still and lifeless. Like his heart.

These might be my only submissions--I'm low on free time this week. Good luck to everyone! (Also shit @flasaltine starting with a show-stopper.)

I think that'd be tough to set up depending on the book? Like, I just got through Inside Scientology but it took me a good month-and-a-half 'cause I read on the metro to and from work only. (All the time I have for reading.) I'm working my way through A Tale for The Time Being right now but I'd be interested in this some time down the line. :o
