Directory of Player-Created Content IV: A New OP

Postby Ever-Wandering Souls » Mon Jul 31, 2017 4:24 pm

Hello and welcome to the Directory of Player-Created Content IV: A New OP! A successor to the prior pin, itself based on a prior pin, with inspiration also taken from the directory aspect of Artists' Corner, this thread serves as a hub for browsing and discovering the works of other NationStates Players. Sorting is alphabetical by nation name within the appropriate sections.




Want to have your creations listed, or your listing edited? Click Here!





Table of Contents

  • Visual - Traditional art? Digital art? Photography? Video? This is the category you should picture your work in!
  • Audio - The section for fire mixtapes, and all that jazz.
  • Written - The home for literature, poetry, and other textual creations.
  • Miscellaneous - The place for the outliers. Metalworking, embroidery, really fancy cooking...it's all at home here!
  • Resources - A hub for finding NS art resources.





****Hello! I'm creating an updated version of the pin for this section, attempting to incorporate the still-functioning links from the current recently removed pin as well as some of the concepts looked at in Gigaverse's "Artists' Corner" - namely, inclusion of all types of player-created content in the directory and not just visual art (but not the hangout/discussion aspect there, this is focused on the directory portion). This should be completed gradually over the next few days, but I despise creating multiple-post-spanning complex BBCode formats in Word, so I'm just going to work on it right here. In the meantime, please excuse my mess!****

UPDATE 1 - most content has been transferred. In the process of contacting via telegram some creators to finalize adding of old content. Now open for submissions! Would also appreciate suggestions for the resources page!

Visual



Aezakmi
Gallery

Image

Description:
This is an eclectic little gallery of what I consider to be the 'highlights' of my on-again off-again hobby of illustrating in various mediums. It spans quite a few years, and certainly isn't anything like comprehensive.



Almonaster Nuevo
Gallery

Image

Description:
A small sample of my ridiculously extensive collection of home-cooked fractals. I'm not producing many just now, but I hope to get back to it.



Arkotania
Gallery

Sorry. No sample. Images are too large.

Description:
Just some drawings of mine, much of it older, though I've begun drawing again, so it'll be updated as I go. Plus I think I've gotten better!



Asumbuoy
Gallery

Image



Bergnovinaia
Gallery

Image

Description:
A collection of Bergnovinaia's best photographic works, including some he may use for his AP portfolio in the coming years of AP studio art courses. The gallery boasts of a wide variety of photographs, many of the best ones being on the offsite gallery and website (see links in OP). Also, Bergnovinaia's Photography Gallery Feature Some of his recent portrait samples.



Bunkeranlage
Gallery

Image

Description:
My style of art is a very simplistic kind of manga that can usually be done in very short periods of time (usually within 2 hours). Many of the things I draw are usually of a very dark nature, and often have a very surreal or twisted undertone to them.



Cameroi
Gallery

Image

Description:
Cameroi's art is of all species. Much of it consists of computer-generated 3D models, the general design and coloring of which is often quite different from picture to picture. The theme of the models is very unique, and depicts a society of somewhat humanoid furry creatures living on a densely forested planet. There are also numerous pieces done by hand, which can vary from abstract shapes and colors to very refined and meticulous pencil work. There's even a bit of photography mixed in there. This gallery is truly well-rounded display of artistic ability.



Cannot think of a name
Gallery


Description:
The anthropomorphic adventures of a pair of RC monster trucks, Lunchy (a Tamiya Vanessa's Lunchbox re-issue) and The Punk (a Tamiya Midnight Pumpkin re-issue Chrome edition) as they're haunted by a pair of RC rally cars (a Tamiya TT-01 and DF-03r as well as an Axial SCX10) The first series (labeled 'season 2', the first season was us just messing about with the trucks. We didn't do story until season 2) is an adventure serial full of little film school jokes. Well, not filled.

The second (season 3) is a Choose Your Own Adventure style video with multiple pathways and multiple endings that took us almost 5 months to film and contains enough footage to account for a feature length film.

Season 4 is in the works.

These are done 'run and gun' style and I don't do much of the editing, so it's not exactly a reflection of what I would do professionally, but it is a lot of fun to do and I think they come out kind of cool. The scores are all composed and recorded by my brother who owns all the vehicles as well. I do some of the driving but I'm pretty sure none of my sloppy flailing about makes it into the final cuts.



Corindia
Gallery

Image

Description:
A whole bunch of vehicular line art, of varying quality



Corvus Metallum
Gallery

Image

Description:
This gallery is composed entirely of fractal artwork, be it flames made in Apophysis, or 3D fractals made in Mandelbulber. Generally speaking, the pictures are made to be desktop backgrounds and, thus, are too big to be posted on NS directly.

Islamic Hazarastan
Gallery

Image

Description:
This gallery features a few interesting drawings done in pencil with a pretty fishy theme (HA HA HA, IT'S A PUN!). By opening some spoiler tags, one can discover several strange, evil-looking sea creatures hidden in the depths of Islamic Hazarastan's posts. For one who is "kinda new to art," the drawings are very good. They're even more impressive in color (see the "sample" spoiler - the color was added by Hassett to Islamic Hazarastan's original sketch).



Infected Mushroom

Description:
I draw using pencil and edit the images a bit. Vampires, Game of Thrones characters, and beautiful girls...

Description:
An eclectic collection of 70 of my various works including portraits(see above), anime-style drawings (both copied and original), abstract pieces, landscapes and still lives along with a couple I don't really know what they are! Most of my work is in B&W pencil, but theres also quite a few which use colored pencils, charcoal, ink, watercolors (or a combination thereof), in addition to a couple photos, CG art and linoleum block prints.

Description:
I've a huge movie enthusiast and I love the art of filmmaking. In my spare time and for relaxation, I like to watch films of many genres. Over the years, I've wanted to make a movie of my own with some friends. School got in the way and till now such a project has yet to be completed. I had the opportunity to make trailers of novels for my cousin's literature class back when he was in high school. I've been hooked on making trailers as a hobby ever since. I mainly edit scenes shot by my friends. I also edit scenes from entire movies to make my own trailers for famous films. Of course, I do not consider myself anywhere near professional, but I'd love to improve over the years with the little time that my job schedule allows me to work with. So here are some of my trailers and mashups that I've made. Please feel free to leave constructive feedback and suggestions/ideas!

Atheris
Fanfiction I've Wrote

Edgeworth hated art museums.

Despite how stuck-up, how rich, how snobby he appeared to be, he absolutely hated these places. They were so clean that he could see his reflection on the white marble, so polished that he could hear the click-clack of his shoes much more than in his office or at his apartment, and so stuffy that he was sure that if he stayed for more than five minutes he’d start having allergies. That being said, Edgeworth did enjoy some of the displays on show - he was looking at one in particular, some sort of cavalryman showing weapons to what he presumed to be a Roman Emperor.

“Royer is good, huh?”

Edgeworth nearly jumped out of his skin.

“What I wouldn’t give to see one of his original works, especially this one, in France. I once got to go to Le Puy-en-Velay with Athena, but she didn’t let me go into the museum.”

Edgeworth looked over to his left. Standing next to him was a blue-claden man, a soft smile appearing over his lips as he brushed back his spiky hair and adjusted his collar.

“Wright, what are you doing here?”

The lawyer chuckled.

“Can’t a man appreciate the finer things? You’re acting like I didn’t study art for three years,” Phoenix said, fiddling with the locket in his coat pocket before finally settling it. Edgeworth cleared his throat and shifted his weight.

“Yes, well, this is the last place I expected to see you.”

“I could say the same for you, Edgeworth. I never see you hanging up any art in your office, and judging from your facial expressions I don’t think you know what this painting is about.”

Edgeworth cleared his throat.

“O-Of course I do! See, that cavalryman there is displaying bounty from a recent conquest to the Emperor of Rome…” Phoenix held up his hand to stop him.

“That’s Vercingetorix surrendering to Julius Caesar. The title of the painting is on the pedestal, Edgeworth. Besides, it doesn’t take an eye for art to tell that the cavalryman isn’t from a legion.”

Looking back at the painting, Edgeworth had to acquiesce. Vercingetorix, as he remembered Wright naming him, certainly didn’t look the part of a Roman; he had golden armor and a leather tunic, a large mustache and long hair gracing his head. The taller prosecutor looked down at the pedestal that Wright mentioned. Vercingetorix Throws Down his Arms at the Feet of Julius Caesar, Lionel Royer, c. 1899. Hm. It certainly was a fine painting.

“What always struck me as odd about this particular piece is that the sky behind the Romans is brighter than the sky in Alesia, but I guess that can show that the Romans brutalized the town during the siege - but the thing is, the Gauls didn’t use castles like the Medieval Europeans, so it’s rather anachronistic, I suppose. This is from 1899, which is after the Franco-Prussian war, so it’s obviously supposed to be an appeal to French nationalism. One of my favorite paintings. Did you know Vercingetorix is still considered a French nationalist symbol?”

Edgeworth struggled to find his wording, before clearing his throat again. “I… I did not. I’m no expert on history, especially before the modern era…”

“Oh, you should see Athena go on and on about European history. She’s fun to talk about this sort of thing with. I was going to bring her, but she went out on the town with Trucy." Phoenix sighed, brushing his hand through his hair. "I love this piece, certainly a fine example of late 19th century nationalist romanticism. I'm sure some may call it classicist, too, but I feel like with its nationalist undertones it's much more fitting to call it romanticism, especially at the turn of the century succeeding 1871. If I could afford it, I'd hang it up somewhere in the office.”

Edgeworth was visibly confused. He always thought of Wright as some sort of "uneducated country bumpkin" (Miss Fey granted him that vernacular after Galactica's trial), mostly because of the way he performed in court, but hearing him talk in such a dignified manner left Edgeworth speechless, and he felt the embarrassment flow from his stomach to his cheeks. Resetting his glasses, he pondered over the conversation. What was he going to say next, that Larry knew more about art than him?

“Of course, Larry knows more about art than me.”

Edgeworth choked, taking a handkerchief from his pocket and wiping his forehead.

“Excuse me. I need to go to the restroom.”

He could hear Wright laughing as he walked as fast as he could out of that conversation.

I write fanfiction. I know I already have a factbook about it, but some people don't go into them and I want people to be able to read my stuff (if they want to, obviously) without having to go through my profile to do so. I'm actually currently working on a rather large project, so if you're interested, I have an Archive of Our Own account where I post all of my fics.

What happens when the world caves in on you?
What do you do when the sky is blood red and not blue?
When the voices of devils are carried up from the ground,
and all creation trembles with that twisted sound?

A spell most foul was laid upon this land,
and I went to fight it, blade in hand.
Only to find a foe not of man,
but a being of shadows, of whispers and plans.

When even the light from above is quenched,
how can one's inner self remain entrenched?
Your back will be broken on the rocks of despair,
for nothing can survive while pure down there.

An empty graveyard, where life fears to tread,
Death reigns here, in its stead.
Now look at the graves, stones withered by time,
and if you seek closely, you'll see mine.

Thunder and lightning clash in the sky,
the last remnants of gods gone by.
And below us all, a lake of fire,
burning all who earn God's ire.

This world was not meant for men,
But once here, you cannot leave again.
A figure hangs, above the door,
silently watching, forevermore.

The Reluctant Self

There is a point of no return
That point isn’t clearly marked
Some stray dogs keep watch nearby
But don’t count on them to bark
And let you know to watch your step
They have their own concerns
This place has been their homestead
So long as the sun has burned

On which side are we standing?
Is there no one who can tell?
Denied are all the wishes
Of the ones who dug the wells
Scarce sustenance is offered
By the crescent, cross, and wheel
The fittest ones among us
Still await a chance to heal

And I am the reluctant self
Confined to the first person view
I would like to be something else
Not someone else, but something new
Stranger than animal, alien, android
A difficult thing to conceive
Something unmoored, entirely free
Or merely a grain through the cosmic sieve

文明七年 The Seventh Year of the Bunmei Era (1476)
This entry was written after during yet another looting of Kyoto, the Oomiya residence was burned down.

My face stretches into what some might call a smile. It's the kind of smile one might make as the student, hiding their inner terror when a teacher assigns yet another ridiculous writing assignment. Or perhaps, the smile one friend may give to another, trying to assure them that, yes, their awful cooking is edible. And maybe the smile one shows when they are too tired to cry, too angry to live, and too stressed to speak.

I know it, because all three of those are my experiences.

Those three experiences gave me the same face, same expression. But they are very different experiences, each of them. Our understanding of medicine thus far claims it is the physiological response that leads to emotion. If that is the case, why did those different emotions all give me the same physiological response? The response of a fake, empty smile on my lips.

I do not know, and I may never know.

And even so, I wish to know. Again and again this last two and a half centuries, I have found myself facing the same abyss. I still remember the first time I felt this way, when my little sister perished before she had even reached a year of age. That time, my mother comforted me. And then again, when my parents left this world. That time, my friends comforted me. But as the generations came and left, there were no more people who can tell me "it will be alright."

"Everything will be alright."

I am still as selfish, and childish as ever. I know it because it is true. But even so, even so....I still wish to hear those words.

"Everything will be alright."

Like the child who woke up after an evil dream and seeks to know that they are not being pursued by demons or being cast into a fire, I want to know, I want to feel, I want to understand.

"Everything will be alright."

But I am not. I am not who I was. I have changed, already, so many times. I will continue to change, as is nature of human....or whatever I may be.

Back in the Ashikaga School, I learned a most interesting story. It was tale from the faraway land of Greece, which explains a ship that is replaced, plank by plank, until there is not a single part of the original left. Philosophers debate: is it still the same ship?

Back then, when teacher asked, I told him: of course not. Although many in our civilization claim something must have an "essence", I disagreed. Materials are merely materials, an objects being and nature must come from the material itself. If a ship is replaced gradually, it is of course no longer the original ship. After all, if Chang'an has the Imperial Palace remade, can we say it is the same essence of the city which existed before? It would not even be Tang's, never mind Qin's Chang'an!

Or so I thought.

Yet I look at myself today, and realize the wisdom of teacher's words. Everything I know has changed. People, of course, are the fastest to go. Even those who lived the longest were gone in under a century. Memories, too, grow darken with each passing day. I can still see the colors and sights like yesterday, and for this I am glad my mind has always been clear. But other things are slowly fading away: scents and sounds. The buildings and natural beauty of this place were the last, but now they too have been lost. Burned, looted, and razed. The only thing I can bring with me forever are emotions. The only thing that is the same are those memories, and emotions.

And now even my emotions are gone.

I have always hated my weakness of crying; during childhood the slightest injury or misfortune could leave me in tears. Mother said it was fine; I came from a noble family, and outside of the public life I could express my emotions freely. But even so I hated it, for what good is a crying to do? I hated myself every time the tears left my eyes, streaking across my face and falling onto the tatami. I hated myself every time my nose became stuffed, and I found it hard to breathe as I gasped for breath and let out my inner emotions at the same time. I hated myself every time I curled onto the floor, with the pain in my mind extending to my heart, and them my stomach. I hated it so very much....

And now I miss it.

Last night, when the family residence burned down finally and the flames reached the sky, I could not cry.
This morning, when the sun rose and shone upon the ashes of where it once was, I could not cry.
Now, I sit down writing this, and I still cannot cry.

I wonder if, I have lost my ability to feel?
I wonder if, I have lost what humanity I had left.
My heart desires this answer, though I may never know.

A Shocking Surprise

All of a sudden, I feel it start;
And I know it will stay, no maybes.
I feel a tingle in my heart
As I look down at my baby.

Her hair is dark, her skin is pale.
She's quite as lovely as thee.
I love her much, but no avail,
Because she can't love me.

She's womanly in every way,
And I long for her touch.
I don't forget her any day
Because I love her much.

I hope you wish to mercy me,
And see the trouble I'm in.
I beg forgiveness, oh, from thee,
But I'm in love with a lesbian.

I had to be a he,
And now it's she I'll miss.
Oh, now I just wish I'd be
A girl that she's kiss.

Oh! That's it! That's it! That's it! That's it!
A girl I will be!
I'll get this wig,
Hide this twig,
And with her I'll be!

She saw me, and I kissed her;
I really liked her taste.
She didn't know I was a mister,
When I showed my face.

She'd love me under any circumstance,
So I thought I'd treat her fair.
I went ahead and drop my pants,
And gave her quite a scare.

Valentine Z
The Sixty - Active Personnel of Valentine Z

ImageImage
A tall and cartoonish Android created by Isalov Industries (from Earth of another dimension in origin), as well as being the second most powerful entity in Valentine Z, Surveillant Clarissa leads Alanis Star after Valentijn entrusted her with much power and authority. Her personality, for most of the time, is described as cheerful, playful and loving, though a little bit on the childish at times. Additionally, she is known to be both erratic and eccentric, with an aforementioned cheerfulness to build. Due to her loving experience as a children’s mascot for most of her life in the parallel Earth, Clarissa states that she prefers to listen mostly to children’s nursery rhymes, as this brings her back to the carefree life that she used to have. Her country of origin is Burma, even though her last name seems to suggest that she might be Japanese or even French in nature; the latter seems to be much more pronounced, with Clarissa conversing and defaulting to French for the most parts. Clarissa is also an epitome of a robot who has perfected the harmony and synchronization between her human mind and the android body that the mind is put in, being able to utilise them and boost her human-mind capacity at 100% efficiency.

She was retrieved from Valentine Z’s Singapore in 24th of January, [DATA MISSING], whereby she was found motionless and without power at the middle of City Hall MRT station. She was then sent to General Valentijn and his company for further investigation, dragging the large robot across the roads of Singapore, to Burma. Bearing a model number N–2904/0, and after reading the instructions that came along with her, it was known that Clarissa is the prototype of the experiment that the Isalov company was doing at the time – to create an android with human intelligence in mind, or for a computer to replicate the sentience of a human. As far as the results show, it was determined that the project was successful as she was able to convey a wide range of emotions and basically act like a human would. Instructions show that she is also fitted with an arsenal of weapons for "self-defense", along with damage output exceeding 77.777.777 Newtons when going into a fistfight. Additionally, the instructions boast about Clarissa having an extremely extensive knowledge on just about every field and subject, and given the specs, Head Secretary Jamie and the rest at that time concluded that given the vast databank that Clarissa has, she might have the entire internet of her world of origin in her head. The instructions further states that Clarissa has a weakness and a distain for EMP-based weapons, and would loudly protest at the idea of having one near her.

When she was powered on, she quickly grabbed the neck of the nearest person at that moment - Valentijn himself; the self-defence mechanism quickly came into life, and while she did not intend to kill anyone, she was trying to stop Valentijn from hurting her, though the latter did not have such intentions. Valentijn, despite being strangled, tried his best to coax Clarissa, while his best friend, Foresittend Marcus, tried to get Valentijn out of Clarissa’s hands and placing a forward shield. He would also try to negotiate with the robot in order to let Valentijn go. Marcus was prepared to take a hit from Clarissa, if any, as well as from her miniguns that popped out from her shoulders. However, peace prevails, as despite the rough start, Clarissa presented herself as a peaceful and pacifistic woman/robot, and would soon free Valentijn, while trying to console him back. That, and also because there was an EMP weapon nearby, and there were several prominent friends of Valentijn (Valentians) who were armed to the teeth and was ready to attack and kill the robot at any time.

Upon being asked about her origin, Clarissa could not tell in full detail of what exactly happened to her. It was already established that she was from another dimension, in which has more or less the same version of Earth that Valentine Z is currently on (before terraforming and nuclear fallout). She expressed surprise at her vast size, stating that she was designed to be merely 8 feet tall (makes sense, seeing how anything too tall would be troublesome for her everyday life in her dimension). The most accepted theory was that upon travelling to Valentine Z’s world, she scaled up by a factor of 2.6x, as a result of the difference between her world and Valentine Z’s world; in other words, the parallel world that she came in from was same as that of Valentine Z’s world, except that everything was more or less bigger by 2.6 times (e.g. their definition of 1 metre is 2.6 metres for Valentine Z). Thus, she "grew" to a towering 6.35 meters. On that planet (hereby designated as Clarissa’s Earth, or Clarissa’s Home World), they have reached year 2014, 28 years behind General Valentijn’s dimension in terms of absolute numbers. Technology is said to be limited, with quantum physics yet to be fully mastered, and the electricity-consuming appliances and transportation still using an untidy form of chemical energy (In contrast to Valentine Z having 90 % adoption rate to clean energy, with 10 % adapting to experimental energy production from antimatter-matter annihilation). Isalov Industries was an exception, having been researched through and developing many technologies that the outside world has little to no idea about. Still, the people from all around the world fully entrusted her short of running their country, stating that they believe that Clarissa will not hurt anyone, and with her arsenal’s weapon more or less taken out of ammo, as well as having programs and fail-safes to keep her from going rogue, this was proven true, and she was accepted in many parts of her Earth.

During her time on her home world, Clarissa first took a job as a children’s mascot, and due to her cartoonish and changing face, she was able to express herself freely, a feature that all the other mascots lack and them having uncanny and terrifying faces. After doing that for a while, she went off to Singapore to volunteer at their Army, just because. After being given a lecture and being told not to go to sensitive or classified places (or else, she would get an EMP to her face), Clarissa complied, and restricted herself mostly to the training areas wearing her new uniform, over her clothes. (While her original clothes are made out of fabric, they are resistant to damage, and is unable to be taken out by conventional means in order to protect the internal parts. Clarissa herself objects to it, for obvious reasons.) One day in her bunk, Clarissa found herself isolated and alone, being unable to find out what happened to the 6.3 billion people around her and on the planet. From this point, Clarissa is unable to recall what exactly happened, only being able to cite “dark shades and shadows” that wandered around the then-desolated planet, which in turn gave her a splitting headache and overloading of her electrical parts if one comes near (though they don’t exactly cause physical damage; just software overdriving and corruption). Eventually, she managed to enter a portal only 20 Earth days later (~17.28 Decimal days) which in turn took her to Valentine Z’s Earth and specifically at Singapore in one fine afternoon. At that moment, she along with General Valentijn, was struck with a nuclear bomb, and unfortunately, Clarissa was separated from Valentine as a result of the blast. She managed to survive with 86,3% structural integrity when she radioed in and subsequently founded by the recovery team.

From this point onwards, she quickly gained the trust of the people around her. General Valentijn made her a valuable ally and a friend in planning for the future of the nation, right alongside Foresittend (President) Marcus. Though, they are still uncertain on whether Clarissa will work along with them, or bring about their extinction by executing an android hostile takeover. She currently has a piece of Valentine Z entrusted with her to control and develop into another state known as Alanis Star. At the same time, she still provides Valentijn with computational assistance and anything related to information technology. So far, everyone that talked to her agrees that Clarissa is nice and approachable to have a conversation with.

Description: (optional)
Even though we don't exactly go into offensive or invasive wars, Valentine Z still makes sure that their world is protected, and what better way to protect and RP the possible military shenanigans using several inspirations from games such as Overwatch, Team Fortress, LoL, and perhaps many, many more?

Possibly the biggest and most ambitious project I have done so far in terms of worldbuilding and featuring 60+1 characters, there are buffs, nerfs, updates, just like you see for actual games.

Gallery (Gameside Part II)

Rosiness

The rosiness in her cheeks had vanished,
And in one fell swoop,
So did his love.

Strangers to themselves,
Aroused by false memories,
They do not know,
Why they are here.

The reality of love is now just a dream,
A dream within a dream,
Within a dream,
Within a dream.

The wells in her eyes are now filling,
His feelings are no longer swelling,
She would rather die than be with him,
But of course, it's all just bluffing.


Also, I'd like to remove my first gallery listed in the OP (the lyrics one).

I'm thinking about something...

Postby Yiptrol » Fri Feb 23, 2018 11:45 am

Question: Say I were to create a massive, online, multiplayer, post-apocalypse on Earth game, that featured many mechanics like No Man's Sky, but wasn't absolute garbage, and you........
Ok, imagine Nationstates and No Man's Sky mix together. You can create factions, go to war with them, raid ships, shoot ships down, get and control resources, and are able to customize weapons and said ships?
Like, say you have a laser sniper shaped like a Barrett 50. cal, but your ship was a giant flying Mario that shot fireballs out of his hands.
Would people be interested in a game like that?
