Since you (FA) were too much of a fucking coward to post the relevant "discussion"
, the topic concerns this part of 87's changelog:
remove the following Lua consts: wdef[id].areaOfEffect, wdef[id].maxVelocity & wdef[id].onlyTargetCategories
Not that I expect your mind to be capable of expanding enough to comprehend them, but the reasons (which I am not under any
circumstance obligated to provide) behind this change are:
1) wdef[id].onlyTargetCategories had no function anymore
such that reading it in Lua would always
produce a fixed constant value, ie. it was 100% useless
and any script relying on that would not have worked as intended anyway
2) wdef[id].areaOfEffect was made redundant
and clearly tagged for removal after the introduction of wdef[id].damageAreaOfEffect + wdef[id].craterAreaOfEffect in 85.0 (as can be found in the changelog
) so you had two whole months to prepare
3) wdef[id].maxVelocity was already marked deprecated
(by guess who?
yet this is the same jK who claims that
<[LCC]jK> [removal of onlyTargetCategories] is the only change of those 3 that makes sense
) because it happened to be IDENTICAL to wdef[id].projectileSpeed * 30 and thus also redundant
Do I change things like this to "basically fuck everyone over without a reacharound", as you so eloquently describe my work on Spring? No, I push them to prevent the engine from becoming a goddamn mess of obsolete / duplicated / outright broken code and data
which as a concept is obviously as foreign to you as critical thinking and nobody else even cares about anymore these days. And if that means dealing with these skyscraping piles of excrement left by ignorant assholes such as yourself time and again, so be it.
