Second WIP, a set of isometric modular blocks and graphics for games. Building in #Inkscape.
Figured out how to handle modular system organisation well in Inkscape, get a bit of control over the swatches system, prevent performance bottoming out, and handle editable flat to iso shape conversions.
Finally happy with the direction of the colour and style. Need to build out more decorative tiles, shadows, and reflective effects. Maybe also some lights.
Lentils have been found in Palaeolithic and Mesolithic sites around the Mediterranean, in places like Greece, Syria, and Palestine, dating back up to 13000 years.
The plant itself is indigenous to central and western Asia, and is one of the first plants domesticated by humans.
Lentil soup is a long time favourite among ancient peoples. Aristophanes in Ancient Greece described it as the "sweetest of delicacies".
For more than a year, I've been researching subjective moderation systems as part of my Master's thesis. What I ended up with is TrustNet, a system for representing, and interacting with, computational trust.
In the linked article, I summarize my research, link to the academic article I wrote, the code I produced, and the 30 minute Master's thesis presentation I held at the end of May.

I wrote down some of my musings on the power feedback loops in games and in life.
@amatecha whoa, that IS sick!
