Just a short article.
I made a mod for two SCS Software games: Eurotruck simulator 2 and American Truck simulator. This mod changes the sun position in theese games according to day in year in real world. Nothing more to say about this except two pictures of comparing winter and summer time in their game.

Now I am getting back to work on things that I should have been working on.
Just a short note. You will not be seeing any more ads from Google on this website. This does not mean that website will end, everythin else will go as (slowly) normal. For me it means few hour a year more at work and for you it means more comfortable browsing experience.
More news tommorrow, update on SmallTime unfortunately may not come as soon as I planned. I have encountered hardware issues with my internal server so making finishing touches on a multiplatform project has become a HUGE PAIN.
But I made a mod for one game to test setup of my updated development tools as an attempt for appeacement with people I disapointed. (hey, this happens when somebody does something for you for free 🙂 )
SmallTime 1.0e has just been released!
This is mainly a bugfix release with some preparation for new feature(s) that will come later.
- fixed bug #6 – 31st minute was not present when adding/editing a countdown or timer.
- fixed bug #7 – now you can scroll in event description field.
- bugfix: words at the end of lines in event description field are not cut in half anymore.
- fixed bug #8: App icon should display correctly for all users (may take up to a week to fix itself, at least that was my case).
As always, you can click this big and beautiful button to download latest version of SmallTime ->
SmallTime 1.0e coming soon
SmallTime 1.0e release is planned on 31st May 2017. Note that the release may be postponed by a week because intense testing is now in progress.
SmallTime 1.0e is a bugfix release with ground ready for new features and will be backwards compatible with version 1.0d.
Help with bug investigation
Some people don´t see the application icon in taskbar when they run smallTime. Instead they see default Java application icon(cofee on grey backgrond). It seems that only I and one other person have this problem. I have confirmnation of at least eight other machines where the icon is shown properly. Please let me know if you experience this bug. Post down here in the comment section or send me an e-mail to email@example.com
Thank you very much.
Linux version situation
Although I managed to run SmallTime properly on Linux, I still did not have time to setup the application installer and figure out how to make installed app run on every system startup. There are more ways to do this and I am looking into what will be the best option for me. SmallTime with Linux support (1.0f) will be released on 1st September 2017.
Just a fast update. I finally have few days of free time so I finished the version compatibility layer for SmallTime. It was a bit of a headache and proof of more internal code defective by design but everything is in place and now I am going to do some bug fixing. SmallTime 1.0e will be purely bugfix release with version compatibility test.
There is a slight possibility of a release this month but if there will be some issues it will be postponed to September 2017. Linux version is still not fuly figured out.
Nerderity Report 0.99h has been just released for Linux operating system. Features of Linux and Windows versions are now identical, except some platform specific code. It was a bit of a pain to create semi-proper Linux installer but it was worth it. Instalation is in fact even easier than on Windows now.
This is probably the last version of this game released and I will move my attention to further develop SmallTime and maybe the other project prototype. Problem is that because of more strict legislation in my country, it would be financialy very hard for me to fulfill my original vision of this protoype. But maybe it is for the best to turn it into something much more simple and maybe more fun.
As always, you can download the game here -> .
Have fun! But note that Linux version of Nerderity Report is in BETA stage because I don´t have it´s proper functionality tested on any other PC but mine…. yet.
Also note that more news about SmallTime will come soon. There is a little bug that needs to be fixed.
And one final thing: you can get some quick updates about my projects on Minds social network. https://www.minds.com/SmallSkillStudio
Just a quick update before I go to sleep. I just managed to install Linux operating system and launch SmallTime on it. Icons are obviously not loading for some reason but all other functionalities seem to be working.

More news when I will not have to work overtime on saturdays 🙂 . Stay tuned
Just a short note: I will throw some more money into hardware in late August or early September where my Linux operating system will be. I have almost done setup of my development enviroment in a way that will allow me quick multiplatform deployment. That means that in a future, Windows and Linux versions of my projects will ALWAYS be released on the same day.
Meanwhile, a concept of my latest project has advanced to an early prototype phase. I cannot tell much more but I can tease you with a picture of some metal balls.
SmallTime 1.0d is finally going live. If you are using smalltime, I highly recommend you to download this new version due to some nice usability updates and bug fixes.
Warning: your events from 1.0c will not be ported to 1.0d. However, for next versions there will be a solid compatibility layer that will always convert your data to new version. I am sorry for any inconvenience.
- new file saving system
- there are now two types of events: countdown and timer. Timers have green color, countdowns are orange (better distinction in next versions)
- when you edit an event, it will stay in place
- events are separated by lines for better readability
- bug #4: Using # symbol in event name or description causes program to fail. Program will not be able to start because data file gets corrupted.
- bug #5: app will not start if msvcp100.dll is not present in your operating system. [this needs to be confirmed but it should work now]
As always, you can download SmallTime here ->
SmallTime 1.0d release is planned on 9th July 2016.
SmallTime 1.0c contains a bug that causes the whole program to stop working after you put # somwhere in the event name or event description field. I had to refactor big part of program to fix this bug but it was worth it and new features and settings can be added with ease in the future.
Data from SmallTime 1.0c will unfortunately not be loaded into 1.0d but for future versions there will be a reliable backward compatibility system. I could make it possible to convert 1.0c data to 1.0d but it would not fit into the new backward compatibility system and would cause problems when trying to load old corrupted data.
Also, I started to work on a new project concept but in this early stage I can not promise anything.
