Mindustry 4.0 released!


After more than a year a new version of my favorite #libre #game has been released!

Image/Photo

#Mindustry is a tower defense game where you build machines similarly to a proprietary game Factorio, and it has multiplayer. I've played the previous version and enjoyed it very much, it was one of the best libre games I've played. This new version should be kind of an overhaul, many new features and rules. Give it a try.

(Note: I've discovered a bug when running the GNU/Linux binary can give a segfault -- it's probably caused by an outdated packing tool and if it happens to you, just run the game directly with java -jar desktop-release.jar.)

I've just wasted a minute looking into how to ridicule the molecules whose graphing this software manifestly supports. Molecules at large are actually a hard thing to mock;)

The best I come up with is looking into stitching together EasyChem and Music Software.

Among imaginable angles -- to figure out a complete set of musical controls. Instead of touch or touchpad or mouse, you'd play musical notes to the software that would deduce a corresponding molecule diagram, interactively as you play.

Once this done, you just may end up in a position to hand back mouse, touchpad, etc, except that now what's commanded by mouse or touch is translated to appropriate music and then that music obeyed;)

Anyway, are there modes of interacting musically with print/screen diagrams that would make more sense for diagrams of molecules than for diagrams of other things?

The challenge I'd say would be to have easy musical encodings of natural non-local actions on the diagrams, that are impossible or hard to convey by click-and-point or touch.
