Re: TrueSkill 2 vs WHR

As long as something reasonably sane was chosen, I doubt it's worth agonizing over precisely what prior is best. What matters is if the proxy metrics for player skill can actually reflect the long term reality of who wins & loses more often. I didn't mean the former, much rather the latter :) What ...

Re: TrueSkill 2 vs WHR

Have you thought of a way to collect the required data (killed/lost units ratio or destroyed metal / lost metal ratio) from matches? This would be relatively trivial to do in a gadget, like the Awards gadget, then submit to SPADS - either natively or through a plugin, there's a callback to override...

TrueSkill 2 vs WHR

Hey guys, I'm considering the development of a new plugin for SPADS replacing the (now obsolete) TrueSkill by the new TrueSkill 2 calculation. Given it's an official MS thing, I just thought that maybe it should be an update (or option?) to SPADS itself, instead of a plugin. What do you think? My pe...

Re: Physically Based Rendering

Beautiful, height/vertex blend is amazing. It's worth mentioning that in Ivand's PBR terrain implementation you're not limited to 4 materials as in the standard splats technique, you're only limited to the amount of max textures at once - 24, if memory doesn't fail me. So you can have, for instance,...

Re: Physically Based Rendering

I can confirm the result of the commit I got is the exact same visual appearance as what I get in Substance or Sketchfab. Truly amazing, Unity for instance has some hard time getting the proper final look in a PBR-textured model. Animated gif from the final effect: https://media.giphy.com/media/5bb7...

Re: Physically Based Rendering

I've been collaborating with Ivand to get this working, mostly from a technical artist point of view - model & textures also provided, they're for a WIP new Spring game. Amazing job so far Ivand, I can't tell you how happy I am with what you accomplished! :) This is the #1 graphical breakthrough Spr...

Re: An open letter/epitaph to BA and it's "community"

Balance by committee is bad, balance by deaf ears is even worse. It's obvious the huge experience and knowledge of the game some of the BA devs have, but using that as a quick trigger gun to dismiss the users' complaints is a terrible attitude and could only lead to this kind of scenario. Even if th...

The latest I could find :) Forboding Angel has added it successfully to a recent EvoRTS release. My current dev version also includes morph pause (must have!) and a powerful morph queue, with which you can queue units/structures to be morphed and they're morphed one at a time, to prevent stalling yo...

Re: Notepad++ Autocomplete XML

@jamerlan no luck making mocaccino running with the older/more mature 'Lua' plugin. Not sure if I missed something. Anyways, it's nice to install the lua plugin first so IntelliJ also finds/autocompletes the lua standard libraries. Then you disable it and enables EmmyLua. Again, you can probably do ...

Re: MacOS SpringRTS OSX Build

I doubt you'd get anyone to do it, since - from what the engine guys said - it would require a complete overhaul of the graphics pipeline, or having it run on Metal which would be even less probable considering the amount of OSX players. 105 theoretically will have enough meat to allow it to work on...

IMO the existing Assimp page needs to be re-split so that the blender workflow is its own page again. Yeah, I think it's too long for a single page too.
