Ludum Universe – going data

Okay, so I finally got my scraping script completely done. It scrapes all of the LD #30 entries, and scrapes the comments from each entry’s page. I have it running as a cron job that grabs comments from a batch of 100 entries every half hour, so assuming we have about 3000 entries for LD #30, it’ll get through all comments once every 15 hours.

Now to actually get something set up in Unity with spheres wrapped in entry screenshots, with comment connection lines going between them.

    Aagh! Just realized I’m going to have to have the scraper copy all the screenshot thumbnails to my server, because the security sandbox in the Unity web player won’t let me pull them directly from the ludumdare site.
