I've recently gotten sympathized with the story of a deaf Apex player who solely relies on his teammates' pings to know what is happening in his surroundings. As a graphic designer, I thought I had the obligation to think of a possible way of translating the sounds into something visual. Before someone says that all players would take advantage of such a feature, we DO already know the direction/distance of the sounds only by hearing, so having them also presented visually wouldn't add any information to what we already have but only help those who lack hearing sense. That feature would be optional and found in the game settings, also, when enabled, all gaming sounds will be automatically muted so people don't use both audio and visual at the same time.
I attached a concept I made just to illustrate the idea so it can be better understood.
Please vote on this idea so Respawn can see it:https://answers.ea.com/.../Add-an-option.../td-p/10326969
********************************* EDIT *************************************
First of all, I would like to thank every single person here for the kind messages I've been getting, and also for having contributed by either suggesting improvements and/or voting on Respawn's official forum so my suggestion can be noticed. All this positive feedback makes me want to work even harder to keep trying to improve the game and make it more accessible as possible. :)
That being said, I decided to brush up on the concept for the sound indicators based on studies and feedback I've been receiving, and that's what I'm coming up with:
In the current blockchain world, there is a lack of simple interface and friendly way to monitor our blockchains and information attached to them, without having special skills for reading or understanding the blockchain, it’s complicated to create, or innovate for non-coders users.
Especially with the last major crypto evolutions, there is a need for a lot of new tools to help and develop the ecosystem within decentralized finance. With the high cost of running nodes and executing transactions over mitigated or overloaded networks, there is a need for solutions to read our chains info efficiently and execute transactions smartly.
Over the past 10 years the crypto industry has had trouble to explain blockchain easily to new users, and fast to build innovative projects, usable quickly in a production world moving really fast. The problem in picture is to find multiple ways to create and handle the network flux of data from our chains activities, to collect stats, users information and chain data.
This problem is very prevalent in the Cryptocurrency Space. But don’t worry, GraphLinq ($GLQ), is here to solve this problem!
GraphLinq ($GLQ) solves the problem, through an online interface, it creates the ability of generating and mastering your own blockchain data without the need of coding experience.
Imagine a platform on which anyone can create his own cryptocurrency with the least effort, or watch the activity of his smart-contract, generate a bot to handle subscriptions, or watch an AMM (Automated Market Maker) pair activities, execute trades on centralized exchange based on decentralized data, create Decentralized Exchange arbitrage automatically through graphs executed on the GraphLinq engine!
With GraphLinq you can generate a set of nodes (blocks) that receive an input and output to a single/multiple other nodes, so you create with a set of tools your ‘structure’ of code with a path of execution that will be launched on the blockchain or the GraphLinq Engine, then you can deploy it on the test net Engine or the main net Engine, once you tested and want to get in production. One graph can for example track network pairs activities on Binance and report stats to webhook, or slacks, discord, telegram, twitter with any conditions you decide to trigger a possible results of your nodes.
This is just a glimpse of what GraphLinq is capable of! The possibilities with this project are unfathomable!

For example, if I look at a rose in a vase and then try to imagine how the rose in the vase looks like, it is impossible. I can remember the properties of the vase - that it is made of glass and has a certain shape. I can remember the color of the rose. So, I try to put the vase on an imaginery surface, still keeping its properties in my mind. Then I try to put the rose into the vase, now recalling the properties of the rose. Suddenly, I lose all information about the vase - it kind of makes sense, because you can't think of two things at once. I can go back and forth between the vase and the rose, recalling their respective properties. I can remember that the rose was leaning on one side of the vase and, therefore, I can "sense" the point where these two objects touch each other, but these objects don't have any concrete visual representation. I just can't put these pieces together to form an image. All I can do is to analyze the characteristics of each individual object.
It was hard to put this into words. Hopefully it made at least a bit of sense. Can someone relate to this?
I have aphantasia which means I have no senses in my brain. That means no visuals, no sounds, smell, taste, anything. Ask me anything!
I have just found this subreddit and it blows my mind that it is somewhat common for people to not be able to visualize things. It seems there is a spectrum. And I can't visualize details very well, but to not have any ability to form a visual in my mind sounds crippling.
This also makes me wonder if it is truly a skill or "muscle" that some people just don't naturally build from a young age, and so some people just can't do it for that reason. It's not that they can't truly do it, but instead, the initial way of doing it was never nurtured by them naturally, so it never developed into a day-to-day skill. Now they are grown up and that part of their brain has never developed, but it could be.
Like if someone reached adulthood without learning math. It wasn't they couldn't ever do it, and still can't, but since they never did, it's harder to do it now.
I feel like there are other things people could do this with. This reminds me of another interesting thing I've found in people. It seems many people almost constantly think in words, whereas I only think in words like 10% of the time. Someone I know thinks in words constantly! Every thought naturally is put into words in the mind immediately. Whereas for me, I have to often translate me thoughts into English through effort if I want to share them. The person I know who seems to instant-translate her thoughts seems to be able to the follow logic in conversations way better than me. (Like "You said this and this, so that doesn't make sense for you to say this and this.") Which makes me think the two are related. Her language ability is for to honed and sharp than mine, making it hard to keep up in a conversation. I know there is definitely more to it that just that, but I wondered if it played a role.
That would be an example of me not using my brain muscles as much to translate abstract thought to language in the same way someone with aphantasia doesn't translate abstract thought into a visual representation.
I made a website which allows you to see the analog inputs from replays. The replay has to be uploaded to Trackmania Exchange and has to use analog input (wheel, joystick, controller).
As an example, here is racehans' PB on A09 Race (0:24.46):
Title is awkwardly phrased ... but anyone else go through their liked songs in chronological order and remember different “periods”?
I.e. there’s like 10 songs I listened to over and over when I first did weed. Now, I listen to those songs I vividly remember the moment I ate my first edible and felt that euphoria rush lol. Then like 15 songs later I remember the period when I tried acid. Whenever I listen to those songs I remember tripping and almost feel at peace. Then like another 10 songs later it’s the “stuck alone due to quarantine” songs.
I don’t remove songs once I “like” then on Spotify and usually don’t listen to them after a certain period which I guess makes my brain compartmentalize songs to certain time periods/experiences.
Going through my liked songs is like going down memory lane haha
I've been reading into aphantasia and tests and I've been frustrated by the answers being "see nothing" or "see dark shapes". I don't see either I can flash an image in my head for a nano second and remember some details and to recall again I "flash" the image again. I can play short gifs in my head repeatedly (no more than about a quarter of a second). I'm wonderig if anyone does the same thing or maybe thats how people normally visualize.
I have been using YNAB for well over 5 years now (first gotten into it back in the YNAB 4 era). While I absolutely love the app, one thing that bug me was not being able to quickly lookup how much I can spend for the day without going over the budget for each category.
Each time I go out (back when that was still possible), I always have to manually calculate how many days are left in the month then divide that into how much I have left in my going out budget before I know how many beer I can order for the night!
The new progress bars in the latest version are nice but not quite what I am looking for. I also need them on the go.
So, after a long time, I finally get the chance to make my own little website that does all that for me.
(These numbers are randomly generated for demo)
Each grid display how much money I have left in a category, how much I am under or over given the current date, and how much I can spend each day for the remaining of the month to stay within budget.
I also add some more graph that I found useful.
For example, in the picture above, the top graph show spending for the past 7 days along with graph for 90 days, 30 days, and 14 days moving average. If you want to reduce your spending then keeping each bar below those MA lines will do the trick. The bottom graph is the same over longer period of time.
This last graph show 200 days moving average over the entire YNAB data.
Your spending will usually increase over time due to inflation. However, if it increase far beyond normal inflation, it may indicate lifestyle creep. I want to plot inflation graph as a reference too. Maybe in future updates.
You can visit: https://app.ytistic.com/ to try out the site. I make it work on both desktop and mobile.
It’s a bit slow to load at the moment. Performance improvements are in the plan. Currency also only show as $ for now. Will fix that later.

A group of samples can be used to generate a normal distribution that approximates the population distribution (central limit theorem). Repeating this process many times generates a cloud of curves whose spread is a representation of their standard error. For example,
Transparency was applied to the curves so that their density at any point is represented by its brightness. Increasing the number of samples looks like focusing a camera:
The mean and standard deviation used to generate each curve all bounce around the same value as in the previous graph but with less error. This effect is exaggerated by increasing the number of samples again:
These curves were generated through simulated dice rolls, so they can be compared to the true population distribution, marked by a red curve here:
It's not a great way to visualize standard error, but it's a cool way to explain the concept.
I was listening through the series for the umpteenth time and every time I do a couple quotes stick out to me to where I can't not visualize them even if I tried.
This is one of my all time favorite quotes to visualize, what's yours?
"I admire one to my left, the bronze sun is behind him as he falls, silhouetting him, immortalizing him in that singular moment—one I know I shall never forget—so that he looks like a Miltonian angel falling with wrath and glory. His exoskeleton sheds its friction armor, as Lucifer might have shed the fetters of heaven, feathers of flame peeling off, fluttering behind. Then a missile slashes the sky and high-grade explosives christen him mortal once again."
