    I wonder if, considering there is no limit, one could OOM another one's gfx card by using a weapon with insane sizes, but I think starbound will crash while loading the player file, before you can connect to the server. I find it weird that last time I had a 200x200 sprite for testing, I had as many fps as a diashow without even holding the weapon (e.g. shouldn't impact the gfx card).
    Pretty damn epic but also pretty damn laggy, I don't think you can have fluent fps without filling your PCI slots with nvidia gtx 780s

    Having also made several custom items (none inappropriate), I can sympathize with you, but I also understand the calibre of this problem. Thanks to the developers for responding so fast and working on a fix for this!

    Any official news on this at all? I guess if they have gotten to the bottom of this it wouldn't be 'live' anyway until the next patch, but there hasn't been an official statement about this since it was first brought to their attention

    Just curious as to what is going on with this as I would think this is a pretty big deal really

    Just to bump this thread, folks. This is a real issue which hasn't been fixed yet. I've seen several players who somehow uploaded custom image assets to my client.

    They didn't upload anything to your client, they just exploited some specific mechanic
  7. Yo! I understand the concern over this for sure. I've just asked our programmers what our plans are regarding goatse/particle-based griefing, and the fix will be included in the next update. :)

    So is it true? I have a strange feeling that you guys are just being made fun of. Pictures doesn't mean it actually happened, that's why we have Photoshop. Were there any videos? Have you seen it on any server irl?
  9. Nah, it's definitely possible by spawning lots and lots of particles to form an image.

    But again, I bet it required a lot of effort to make it look perfect.

    What kind of frickery-frackery lives in culprit's head to spend time forming a perfect porn pic...

    in that case it's not the tool I made, I gave it to OP who sent it to devs inside that PM convo iirc

    ...It makes me frown they have to get rid of this because people are asshats.

    I was kinda hoping Starbound would eventually get a sort of "spray" and "decal" feature, but thanks to idiots who can't keep stuff like goatse to 4chan servers where it belongs that'll never happen.

    There's been several made by various people already and some folks have been distributing them like wildfire

    Thanks for your consideration. I don't want to be forced to see pornography on my computer, nor do I want others to suffer the same fate.
