  1. Ripples

    It would be helpful to post a hipfile of what you've tried, or a gif of your results so far. Otherwise it's a difficult thing to know what you're trying to achieve
  2. Scatter evenly/orderly/not randomly

    Try using an add SOP and removing the geo but keeping the points. That way whatever your incoming geo looks like will be the point layout.
  3. HTTPS for ODforce.net?

    ok there were some cached things and some hardcoded things, but I've flushed them all. I'm getting a 'secure' status on all pages now. Let me know if it's working for you. M
  4. HTTPS for ODforce.net?

    I think it's done? I'm getting https on all my links anyway. Let me know if it's all good on your end. M
  5. HTTPS for ODforce.net?

    Hey. Thanks for that link, I'll change it over this morning.
  6. Houdini Simulation Basic

    Hey I suggest starting here: https://www.sidefx.com/learn/ and then here: https://www.sidefx.com/tutorials/ You've got a lot of learning to do :). Good luck!
  7. Contributing answers to this forum is always a good way to share knowledge
  8. Which is mildly ironic since the people who's tutorials you want so much are themselves designers. MOPs and Entagma are amazing to see and more knowledge/tools should not be discouraged. Even if all you do every day are pyro sims, learning some design skills will help your sims look better, guaranteed. M
  9. Help with Building my PC

    Those parts would work great. RAM will likely be somewhat dictated by the motherboard that you get, however more will be better. SSD is pretty straightforward, get the best one your budget allows :). It doesn't make a huge difference with regard to sims. M
  10. How could I delete my topic ?

    We don't typically delete posts since they could be helpful for someone else who is looking for answers to things. If you PM me the threads you want gone I can take a look to assess them. M
  11. Nvidia Flex implementation

    ok that video was really fun to watch.
  12. Awesome! I sent this out to the fx team at work yesterday :). Good to see it.
  13. Hacked site

    spammers will spam, that's the nature of the interwebs. We've turned on first post moderation for now, which will shield everyone from the spam. Hopefully it dies down soon and we can turn it off again. M
  14. Tools forum

    To be honest my initial idea was to have it called 'marketplace', possibly with subsections for free, tutorials, HDA's, etc. So something like that is likely what we'll head towards. Likely starting with the free section.
  15. Tools forum

    Hey all We've noticed an increase of people posting HDA's and other general tools in random forums around the site. To help everyone we thought it would be beneficial to open a forum dedicated to the sharing of these so they can live in one place and be browesable: http://forums.odforce.net/forum/71-tools-hdas-etc/ Let us know what you think. There is also the option of opening up a commercial tool repository where you can sell HDA's, tutorials etc. Let us know if this is something that you'd like to see. Thanks Marc
  16. Tools forum

    Confusion all around! :). What we have right now is a good thing though, so we'll figure out the other one and go from there. M
  17. Tools forum

    Hey I think there's been some confusion, both on my part and therefore everybody else's :). The tools forum would be for people to post HDA's that they want to share with the world, not specifically for tools discussion. However it seems like there's a real need to discuss the creation of these things too. I'll leave the forum as a discussion one, but go back to the drawing board on a 'sharing' forum. Thanks M
  18. Tools forum

    yeah no worries. If you come across something then feel free to flag it, I wouldn't spend too much time on it :). We can build it slowly..
  19. Tools forum

    Maybe? I haven't thought it through that well yet :). It does seem like it's worth investigating though, so I'll look into it a bit more. M P.S. Thanks for flagging the posts, I'll move them when I have some time.
  20. Tools forum

    I should've added a poll to this :). eh well. If there are no major issues with this then I will begin to find all the scattered tool posts and move them into the new forum. If you find any, please message me (or report them) and we'll move them into the correct place. Thanks M
  21. Please allow me...

    I know this is a bit late, but I missed this thread and felt like I should comment. Firstly, this topic amuses me since I think I could count on two hands (maybe some toes) the amount of times we've had to lock threads in the 20 years this site has been running. So the assertion that we're trigger happy thread lockers is a bit of a stretch. Now it may be that some of the very small number of locked threads belonged to some people in this thread, and if that's true then I would suggest taking a look at your online etiquette and perhaps adjusting a few things. You should note that we have very few rules governing each forum, where most other forums on the internet have a laundry list of do's and don'ts for posting. The reason for that is that we have an amazing community of professionals who actually like to help each other produce great work. Healthy debates are certainly welcome, but personal attacks are not. tl;dr: If the topic descends to the equivalent of "no, you!", "heck you!" etc, then it is looked at as a lockable entity. Don't want that to happen? Don't behave that way. M
  22. Turned em off for now. Although it does highlight that we have no social media strategy, which is a bit of an epic fail in 2018.... oh well
  23. lol... nope. I didn't even see that. I'll take a look, thanks
  24. Common Sense

    Now this thread is really done.
  25. ok, give or take a month or so, but approximately 10 years ago today Jason and I launched odforce as a way to get people to send us stuff . Nothing like being the only two Houdini users on an entire continent to motivate one to do something. Anyway, thanks for being with us for the first 10 years, lets see where the next 10 lead us. :balloon: :balloon: :balloon: :balloon: :balloon: Marc
