You don't know what beauty is until you see a thousand sexps working in unison, working without hate or prejudice. A choreographed performance that can only be thought of as divine. The finely polished gems, born as rough ideas, shine brightly against the black drop of space.

All so a teenaged girl can buy overpriced tacos from a supermarket. If that's not art, then I don't know what is.

Re: Is fredding a form of art?
I'd say no, as even Axem is describing the product that the consumer gets. This is something which FRED is wildly divorced from.

It's like if you needed a completely different set of eyes to view a statue. A completed mission may be art when played, and that's related to FRED, but what's actually in FRED is very divorced from the completed mission and would look a mess to most players.

According to that analysis, because I mostly work in ArchiCAD and my clients get the product in paper and then in brick and mortar in a shape of a building, what I do isn't art.

Curious.

Re: Is fredding a form of art?
But isn't art skill in something? A fencer is an artist. A Blacksmith is an artist. Etc. So yeah, Freding is a form of art.

Sorry, I meant to say Snuffleupagus.

So you're saying that a mission can be a piece of art, yes? So that would make FREDding an art form, no?

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

What is art? Ask a bunch of different people and you'll get a bunch of different answers.

Re: Is fredding a form of art?
The act of fredding itself is not art for me, but the results could very well be considered as such. So i'd say yes.. in some way.

Re: Is fredding a form of art?
No it's not art. It's torture.
There's about as much artistic expression in FREDding as in an angry mob of fanatics clawing out each others' throats.

You don't know what beauty is until you see a thousand sexps working in unison, working without hate or prejudice.
What a ****ing joke.
They don't even work, much less in unison.

All they do is crash the game instead of doing what they should be doing. That, or they just don't work as advertised, or conflict with something, or hell, gah **** it every time I open FRED I find myself immersed in an endless torrent of engine limitations and engine bugs which frustrate me to no end.


Though I suppose they do work in unison if all you want to do is make ****ing escort missions.

Gah. I hate FREDding. I should really just ****ing stop, since I've seen and pushed the limits, been there done that, seen all there is to see - and it's ugly if you don't have some pull in the SCP.

I heard transcend and sync were considered pieces of art. It sure didn't feel that way for me.
