I say his contributions to the project deserve to have him there for all eternity. With a 'retired' flag, of course.

Sad to see you go... Spring devs are a finite resource, maybe I should consider spending a few years learning how Spring works to help out.

It is possible that they could be customized - a colour shift is not as difficult as modelling a crystal, so long as you have the tools to do it, and for the one job a demo program would be enough.

No, that's not fair. Most likely the architecture is a puzzle to them, one they are trying to solve.

Most likely because it was the demo. You'll have to buy the full version, you can get the link from the Home of the Underdogs (http://www.the-underdogs.info, I think).

Ah well. Looks like we'll have to be patient, for now at least.

Started off intense, just bombarding the senses with Springy goodness. The unfocusing chemical transitions made my eyes water though; as a short-sighted person I'm all too familiar with poor focus. It fizzled off a bit towards the end. It started on a high and then climbed down, you'd have been bett...

True, humans have got better hardware. But as an OS the human psyche is worse than windows - it might not crash, but oh, the bugs!

In terms of efficiency humans are left standing. That said it would be fun to play an 'invisible projectile' game. Until the novelty wore off, anyway.

I feel your pain, Smoth. But please, we have a few young'uns in the forum who shouldn't be exposed to such outright hostility.

I agree he needs to be, if not banned, then at least given a warning.

Sounds good, but Spring doesn't support dynamic lighting - you could see problems with the sun below the horizon.

You are the commander. As Core you are NOT Central Consciousness, they are who you receive your orders (read: missions) from. Also you are a shrewd tactician (from the TA Manual; also the only personality comment in TA for either commander). As Arm you are not a clone like everyone else. You are the...

True. However, it would be worth it. And yes, I have taken commercial games as examples, yet the 'campaign mode' is an extended tutorial, storyline extender and playability duration expander impossible to equal. I'm not kidding, either, I'd be spending all my time building scenarios if the functiona...

Single player campaigns are only worth it if it is very easy to make. You assume far too much in that statement. OTA's campaign was hard to make. StarCraft's campaign was hard to make. WarCraft's campaign was hard to make. Dune and Dune II? HARD. I see a pattern here. But having played most of thes...

In the meantime, why not just remove the fancy edge texturing so overlap is a matt grey on grey? The whole idea started from a potential Dune mod in which concrete would be underneath all buildings. The only reason we see overlap is because of the contrast between edges. Used right this is a neat li...

Krogothe, perhaps you should consider updating the wiki about some of this. I changed the section a short while ago, but I'm going to be largely offline for the next week or so.

Here's a quick note on the things I think AAI could use. Max Interval Between Attacks - if you set AAI's groupsize to a skyhigh value it takes ages building up its forces before attacking, leaving ample time to porc. Min Interval Between Attacks - so AAI does not exhaust its economy. Min Groupsize F...

Looks like it's time to cannibalise some of thier code, Alantai. Which means a major revision to the core of NTAI, I imagine.

Ouch.
