Back from Japan, blog gets a refresh

May 12, 2012 at 12:51 pm

Hey there! It’s been a while. Just came back from ‘the best trip’ of my life ever!

I’ll just keep this entry really short. I just gave this blog a complete new look. I feel the need to do so as so much has changed recently. I’d like to keep this blog as simple as possible. All gundam development projects will be moved externally which I have yet to decide, possibly my DA account.

I’ve been busy sorting out all my Japan trip photos. I took about 3000 just on my camera! Really looking forward to writing the blog entry but it may take some time as there’s just so many things I could write about.

That’s it for now!

Added some new simple features

May 3, 2011 at 8:54 pm

Hey its been a while since the last post, its already May, Yay! I’ve been busy sleeping recently! Sydney’s weather has been pretty dreadful the past week – Cold, dark and windy. These are the 3 factors that cause drowsiness (well to me at least). So yeah, been pretty busy – sleeping. Even my poor rabbits are shivering, hope they don’t die.

 

Anyway, I’ve added 2 features to the site. Both are very standard features which should be part of the site from the start, but hey it’s still a WIP. so they are:

  • header at the top is now clickable – linking back to the homepage
  • Search field implemented on the nav bar to the far right.

The search box still requires a little bit of styling but at least it works perfectly and is in the right place.

I’ve also quietly added in a new gallery featuring all the pilot images from SRW Z. An awesome collection of 200+ pilot portraits in transparent png format. I ripped these myself from the game! Click here to check it out

 

Here’s some examples below. I chose Faye Xin Lu who pilots the GranTrooper because there’s something about her that I really like. I think maybe its because she looks a little bit like Saber from Fate Stay Night. They sort of have similar hair styles and personalities, maybe I like those kinds of characters.

Thats it for now!

Some updates to the blog

April 2, 2011 at 2:16 pm

A few minor updates and enhancements to the blog.

  • Fixed Navigation dropdown lag issue
  • Changed header slightly
  • Added FB & Twitter share function
  • Hyperlink mouse over color changed to a light red
  • New layout for Music pages (theres nothing on the parent music page yet)
  • Reduced loading time – This ones for Ray =)

#UPDATE:

  • New top Banner! featuring a new Blog of Jaychan logo and an all new Alteisen attack pose render!
  • Sidebar design refresh

More updates are on the way.

Significant changes to Gallery

March 28, 2011 at 11:12 pm

Wow, things are actually progressing in this blog, big pat on the back to myself for staying committed =). Another massive overhaul, but this time to the gallery pages, making it much more hierarchical and organised as well as some really great features! Some new features include the addition of ‘albums’ which act kind of like categories. Not so effective at this stage as I only have 1 album called ‘Super Robot Taisen’ but hopefully more will be added. Another great feature is the use of breadcrumbs allowing for really easy navigation. Gota love breadcrumbs!

 

Again, all of this is to make the site more user-friendly moving forward. No point having content when its hard to find and access!

 

Along with these changes is an additional Super Robot Taisen artbook – Secret Hanger. This one’s amazing I have to say, it features hand drawn illustrations of pretty much every single original generation robot! yes that includes my beloved Alteisen, Weiss Ritter, Cybaster and Valsione. It’s also got some character drawings which I must say are pretty below standard in todays world. However the robots look absolutely awesome and so does this picture of Lune Zoldark! (pilot of Valsione).

Small refresh to blog

March 26, 2011 at 10:48 pm

Don’t be surprised if you see bizarrely strange things happening, such as the really ugly comments section =P. I’m working to give the back-end a major overhaul. It doesn’t look like much has changed, but I’ve spent nearly an entire day porting my layout over to a new template. This is one of the steps necessary to develop a more user friendly blog moving forward and also to unify the contents.

 

You’ll notice I’ve brought back some of the older pages (well were never gone in the first place) just lost somewhere in the blogosphere, and some updates in the ‘about’ page. There’s still lots of work to do, i’ll be updating it day-by-day, i’ll try not to slack off…like every other time, just look at my previous blog update entries lol…

Layout upgrade

July 28, 2010 at 10:23 pm

As you can see the layouts changed again. I tried to simplify it to make it less busy and less of an eyesore. Theres still tons of work to do, like the links and buttons and still tons of glitches around the site. *sigh* when will I finally have a proper looking site that I dont have to fix up ~~”

Well i hope you like this new layout, I’m pretty happy with it, what do you think?

Will slowly get there (=
