dnd 5e – Milestone leveling for a party of players who drop in and out?

Missing a session sucks. Falling behind because I missed a session sucks even more.

When I DM for a group, at Session Zero I lay out this crucial principle:

We all want to be there, so missing a session is punishment enough.

We all want to be there. It sucks to miss a game. I am not going to punish you by lagging your character behind everyone else’s because you miss sessions. The Dungeon Master’s Guide speaks to this a bit, in the context of experience points:

As an alternative, give absent characters the same XP that the other characters earned each session, keeping the group at the same level. Few players will intentionally miss out on the fun of gaming just because they know they’ll receive XP for it even if they don’t show up.

Usually, people are in it for the game, not the experience points.

Out of game problems require out of game solutions.

If it does become a habitual issue of missing sessions, I will never handle this out of game problem by punishing your character. We are going to have a conversation out of game, out of character, and see what we can do to make things better, or decide that group isn’t a good fit for you. But I will never punish your player character for it.

Discuss this with your players at a Session Zero.

I do not mean to say “my way is the best way”. Talk about this with your players. Maybe they’re okay with falling behind. Maybe they have the self awareness to know that possibly lagging behind in character advancement will motivate them to attend when they otherwise would not. This is okay too, as long as it is something you discuss with your table.

java – FPS drop on rendering

I am trying to create my own game in java (without OpenGL, LWJGL etc) and I am having a problem with the rendering.

My map is pretty big and the game redering the entire map at once which cause a result of 2 fps.

Does anyone know how I can make my game to render only what the player see and not the entire map?

map loading code:

private void loadMap(BufferedImage image) {
int w = image.getWidth();
int h = image.getHeight();


for(int i = 0; i<w; i++) {
    for(int j = 0; j<h; j++) {
        int pixel = image.getRGB(i, j);
        int red = (pixel >> 16) & 0xff;
        int green = (pixel >> 8) & 0xff;
        int blue = (pixel) & 0xff;
        
        if(red >=250) 
            handler.addObject(new Wall(i*32, j*32, ID.Wall));
    
        if(green==255)
            handler.addObject(new Floor(i*32, j*32, ID.Floor));
    }
}   

}

camera code:

public void tick(GameObject object) {

x += ((object.getX()-x)-Game.WIDTH/2)*0.05f;
y += ((object.getY()-y)-Game.WIDTH/2)*0.05f;

}

g2d.translate(-camera.getX(), -camera.getY());
handler.render(g);
maps.render(g);
g2d.translate(camera.getX(), camera.getY());

plotting – Import 4 data columns and drop one of them

I’would like to import 4 columns of data form Dat-file(Fortran) and then drop the fourth one to use ListPlot3D and repeat this to drop the third one. When I used
temp1=Import(“my pathbs1.dat”,”Table”); and then
Drop(temp1, {}, {3}) >> temp2;
ListPlot3D(temp2) the message was (Cannot open temp1 ), (“Nonatomic expression expected at position 1 in Drop($Failed,{},{3})”), (temp2 must be a valid array or a list of valid arrays. >>)

bitcoin core – How long does it take for an unconfirmed transaction to drop from the mempool?

I have a transaction currently in unconfirmed limbo for 24+ hours. It was from an old 0.15 bitcoin core wallet, and I guess the fee was set too low. The old version of bitcoin-qt does not support replace by fee, so I have attempted to issue a double spend with higher fee. The double spend is not being picked up though, and the transaction id does not show up on any block viewer sites.

Will the original transaction drop from the mempool after a certain time period? Is there another way to issue the double spend to make it work and take precedence over the original?

      alert(selectedVal);
    }.bind(this));
  }

Bitcoin's Drop in Price Might Scare Off Investors

Market data showing Bitcoin falling greatly recently and even falling below the $10k mark made some investors cautious in investing. Further data also suggested that the whales or the miners wanting to take their profit are most likely the cause for bitcoin’s recent pullback. Traders are expecting that bitcoin price might further fall down and probably would buy from there.
