Voliol's websiteAbout me: I'm a person dabbling in various fields, such as messing around with games (video and not), reading whatever manga I can get my hands on, and getting lost in wikis for stuff I both do and don't have any experience with prior.
About this website: This is my website, where I plan on posting some articles on things I find interesting, and links to stuff I've done elsewhere. Also there's a list of "things I've contributed to", where I can't claim any major credit. They are here because they are cool, and I want to recommend them.
- On combining games (1, 2)
- Pokémon Palettes in Generation I
- Pokémon Palettes in Generation II
- Pokémon Palettes in Generation III
- Pokémon Palette Backgrounds in Generation III
- Ripping Sprites from Dragon Warrior VI - A Report
- Dwarf Fortress Mod Structure - A Suggestion
- One Piece 1000+
- Me & Roboco volume covers
- Did you know bread is made out of rabbits?
Misc. stuff on this website:
Other things I've made:
- Voliol's Various Vivants (VVV), a Dwarf Fortress mod adding various real-life animals and plants.
- DF Diagnosipack, a package of modding tools for Dwarf Fortress. (not updated for DF v50)
- Teh LOLmod, by many members of the Dwarf Fortress community (the list is to long to put here). An off-the-wall community mod for Dwarf Fortress, drawing inspiration directly from the internet (and whereever). I'm the current manager.
- Highfantasy Modpack, by kiiranaux. A modpack for Dwarf Fortress, which includes VVV.
- Warsim: The Realm of Aslona, by Huw Millard. A cool text-based game, with some faces (and gnome insults) made by me.
- The Universal Pokemon Randomizer, originally by dabomstew. There are multiple branches of this, but this branch is the one I maintain.
Beyond doing what ZX does, it also contains a (WIP) palette framework/port of Artemis251's Emerald Randomizer palette randomization.
The palette framework doesn't fully support Gen 4/5 games yet, but otherwise you can use it for playing.
Date format: This website uses the date format YYYYY-MM-DD, that is year first, then month, and finally the date.
The 5 "Y"s are not because of some far future alternate reality setting, but simply that the site uses the Holocene Calendar (or Human Era, HE), which essentially adds 10000 years to the Gregorian Calendar. Why is this? Well, I just think of it as something neat. You can think of it as an arbitrary eccentricity, that isn't too off.
E.g. the date I am writing this, August 22 12022, would be written as 12022-08-22.
