Moof: tonight is the night
Moof: i am going to write my buffer
Moof: technically it is only a single buffer i suppose
Moof: ok it is going well so far
Livestock: how buff is it
Moof: hehe very
Livestock: i think the buffer should make 5 passes on the screen, as follows
Livestock: the first would be to define the points of each vertex
Livestock: the second would be to draw the edges between them
Livestock: the third would be to fill the edges with solid colors to make "faces"
Livestock: the fourth would be to apply textures and lightmaps to each solid color, or face
Livestock: the fifth would antialias and apply post-processing effects such as blurs
Livestock: how do you feel about my plan
Moof: what about the crows
Livestock: this engine would mostly just draw textured squares moof
Moof: when would the buffer draw the crows
Livestock: what are you thinking of
Livestock: i thought we were doing a top-down version of tetris
Moof: i thought we were writing a crow game
Livestock: well maybe we should do a design document???
Moof: maybe yes this might clarify some things
Moof: once my buffer is written it should be super fast though
Moof: maybe they will find earth
Livestock: what do you think is on planet earth
Livestock: barns i bet
Livestock: cylon barnstars
Livestock: that launch thousands of horses and sheep
Moof: hehehe and moocows
Livestock: and resurrection farms
Livestock: launch alert sheep dogs!!
Livestock: set condition 1 throughout the tractor
Livestock: all the haystacks are octagons
Livestock: i think i like battlefarm galactica better than the real show moof
Moof: barnfarm galactica
Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.

Ignore the hype. Find out how these games will likely go right or wrong.
Doing some reps on the water bottle huh. I prefer bench press myself. Just kidding - stay hydrated.
Moof and Livestock discuss life, love, human nature, and all the most important issues affecting humanity.
