My tutor at college
« on: January 25, 2019, 06:28 pm »
I study Games Design in college, for those unaware. We have a project that has recently just started called an FMP (final major project). Prior to returning to college after Christmas, all the information the guy gave us was that we would be in groups of 3 maximum and could create absolutely any project we wanted. Me and a couple of my friends had already agreed we wanted to work together when the FMP came as we all had different skills that we'd need to have the project be a success and we're friends so we don't have to socialise with people we aren't so familiar with (we've been in this course only since September 2018).

So what do any good, organised students do? Plan it out beforehand to get a headstart and beat the competition. All was well and good; we had our concept/story planned out, the roles figured out and had even started prototyping the game. As the "coder guy", I had spent quite some time on this project and this project only, since we were sure we wanted to go through with it.

...Then we returned to college on the 6th of January. After about a week, it was only then our tutor noticed that we had been working as a team thus far. And it was only then that my teacher decided to say "working together? What? You're supposed to be working individually on your own projects at this point". Like, okay, fair enough, but you could've told us instead of saying that we were to be in groups and in turn screwing us over.

Because now, us 3 have to pretend to work apart, write up our own game ideas (which we are now behind on since we've been working together on a project all this time), present them individually, only to end up "teaming up" later in a few weeks to return to the project we were doing this entire time.

What is the point? It just wasted so much of our time and all 3 of us are now far behind on college work. It should've been a lot more clear, and what really pissed me off is how my teacher said it to me. He was literally being funny with me because he was clearly "unhappy" with the "work" produced (you know, none, since we weren't working on the right things because of him). So obviously the only thing me and my friends could do was say "alright, well we'll come up with our own ideas and then team up after". Then my teacher just had to say "don't bank on you 3 being able to be together". And when I asked why, he gave me the most bullsplode reason: "I just might not feel like you'll work well together".

This guy really has it in for me I swear, he's not particularly liked me since the beginning for whatever reason and this is just the icing on the cake. And then after we had that conversation (which had already got me pissed off), he said "have you finished the work on the board?" and oh my god I don't know how I kept my mouth shut here. Because he had literally 5 or so minutes ago gave us the work. And it was supposed to take us a few days. Like actually how much of an ass can you be?

He also had a go at someone in my class for "focusing too much" on their work. Wtf.

Rant over. :D

My tutor literally does nothing. He's never taught us anything, just sat there and said "so here's where you can find the doc on Google Drive, now go do it".

I have legit learnt more by myself than from my tutors.

Ehh, well at least for the FMP (once in groups) we just build our games without our tutor intefering so I'm looking forward to that. It's not all bad, I guess.

We use Unreal Engine 4, so we use these nifty things called "blueprints", which is essentially visual coding. Having past experience with actual coding (which I am more familiar with, to be honest), I'm quite good at them since I know how everything works in the coding world already and I really enjoy building projects with it. :D

Time for me to show off (kinda). I know HTML, CSS, some Lua, Python, PHP (the one I most commonly use) and a little JavaScript (though I didn't like it or find use for it and therefore quit learning it). I really want to learn C++.

Wow. For someone teaching a subject for the development of a widely beloved medium he sure sucks balls at it. Why the hell would your school board hire him, I would never know...
