    The idea is that you have the option to experience the game alone (without the help of other NPCs) like regular Minecraft, or start and manage your own kingdom like AoE, and everything in between.

    A mix between Minecraft and Age of Empires with a little bit of Dwarf Fortress.

    You start punching wood and gathering resources like regular Minecraft, but you can convince (or force) villagers to join you. You would be able to assign them tasks to collect resources, build infrastructure, and train them to protect the village and prepare for war.

    As the game progresses you'll enter in conflict with other villages/kingdoms for multiple reasons: they want your resources; they are afraid of you and want to keep you in check; or your megalomaniacal self simply wants to expand your kingdom.

    Repeat until the whole thing crashes either because it was to big to manage, you were betrayed, conquered, or simply decided to burn everything down like Nero. Flee to somewhere else in the world to start over or to enjoy what the world has to offer.

    So basically Minecraft but with mechanics to manage your own kingdom from a first-person perspective, with better random encounters, events, and mob AI.

    PS: I've never played Dwarft Fortress, so what I described could be just it but in a first-person perspective.

    Can someone tell me what's going in the youtube comments? Why is everyone quoting scenes from other movies/series as if they were from this movie?

  4. Comment on Mental health challenges related to neoliberal capitalism in the United States in ~health

    Abstract

    Rates of mental illness have increased dramatically over the past 15 years in the United States [Products—Data Briefs—Num-
    ber 283—August 2017. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/products/databriefs/db283.
    htm. Published August 15, 2017]. Additionally, life expectancy has fallen over the past several years due to increases in death
    from suicide, opioid overdose, and alcoholic liver cirrhosis as reported by Case and Deaton [Deaths of despair and the future
    of capitalism. Princeton University Press, 2020]. Over the last decade some have questioned whether these changes are due
    to neoliberal capitalist policies and ideologies. Neoliberal capitalism incorporates theories of eliminating all restrictions on
    the market and decreasing government assistance programs as reported by Harvey [A brief history of neoliberalism, Oxford
    University Press, 2005]. Since then these policies have led to income inequality, disempowerment of workers, outsourcing
    of manufacturing jobs, inadequate social services, mass incarceration and an expensive and inefective healthcare system as
    reported by Case and Deaton [Deaths of despair and the future of capitalism. Princeton University Press, 2020] and Nkansah-
    Amankra et al. [International Journal of Health Services 43(2):217-240, 2013]. Studies have shown that the consequences of
    these policies and ideologies likely have a role in increasing rates of mental illness. This paper will discuss how these factors
    increase mental distress and postulate ways that mental health professionals can advocate for change.

    I just knew but at the same time I didn't. Growing up I always felt that other people just breeze through life while I was always paralyzed by fear. And people didn't get it no matter how I tried to explain it: "Everyone feels fear, you only need to get over it".

    I thought that maybe it was because I wasn't part of the right group, that maybe I was gay, or maybe I needed to hang out with goths more, maybe otakus... or maybe I just liked the Spirits Within unironically.

    It wasn't until I got a diagnosis of AvPD at 25 that everything made sense, there was finally something that expressed how I felt. But other than that nothing really changed. It is not something that I share with people because they still won't get it and even trained professionals don't get it. I've just accepted that I'll always feel fear, and I hope that people will understand in those cases where it becomes a problem.

    How do I start with machine learning? Especially the kind that involves image generation and style transfer.

    I don't want to just download some python libraries, some data, and let the machine do all the work. I really want to understand how everything works, but at the same time, I'm not very good with math, especially the more advanced stuff (like complex transformations).
