Re: If Microsoft buys github

The laws are made by the government and reflects its tendencies, its likes and dislikes. So your two quotes are, in fact, equivalent.

Re: If Microsoft buys github

They are banning people with IP coming from countries the US government dislike.

Do we have to wait until the list broaden to encompass a country a Spring dev reside in?
(AFAIK most Spring dev are from outside the USA)

Re: Formations with flow fields

It makes me wonder if Spring uses flow field path finding at all by default or does it just use optimised versions of A* for each unit? Its optional, meaning its deactivated by default, but you can activate it in a spring games configuration. Technically, it's the opposite: ModRules configuration, ...

Kernel Panic 4.8

Kernel Panic 4.8 out! Spring 104 had been out for 2 years, but only this week someone tried Kernel Panic and reported to me it wasn't working. The main breaking change introduced by Spring 104 was the very interface to know the version of Spring. :roll: Complete Installer (Windows) Zipped Mod, Maps...

Indeed.

Re: suggestion: replay backward/forward

Save/Load is doable, has even been implemented a couple times. Including autosave. They're imperfect (no projectile, unit scripts reset, etc..) but still serviceable. Wouldn't work with replays though, since replays works with absolute exact state replication.

It probably means, make it feel like if you grabbed the terrain with middle mouse down, and pulled it with the mouse.

Re: Can we please have an engine that reads modoptions.lua?

I use fewer regulars modoptions, but tons of hidden modoptions (for single player).

As sprunk showed, you don't have to write code to add missing default for each individual modoptions, but can do it programmatically for all, once, with a couple lines.

Re: Can we please have an engine that reads modoptions.lua?

I like that the engine doesn't read the default modoptions.lua by itself. Without that it would be too hard to detect when it's launched outside a lobby. And anyway, using default values without modoptions.lua decoding is easy. So I strongly hope modoptions.lua remains "options lobby should display"...

Re: Why does Spring not support Terra?

Spring is open source. If you're good enough with low level languages to need Terra, then you might as well hack Spring source directly instead of writing Lua scripts.

The skybox looks like a photo of earth sky, and the terrain looks like computer generated alien ground, so they don't fit completely.

The thing is, all the limits you listed but one (12) 32) can be circumvented by a little scripting.

Re: Unit in area -> destroy units

This code would not even compile. You should have an error about it in your infolog. In Lua, but in truth in about every computing language even if the syntax varies, whenever you begin a function or a loop, you must mark where it ends. In Lua that is done with the keyword "end".

Re: Unit in area -> destroy units

Spring.GetUnitsInRectangle(0,0,0,0,0) is a rectangle from 0,0 to 0,0 -> it's a degenerate rectangle, all corners are the same point! Use an actual rectangle, one with a not null area, if you hope to catch units. Spring.GetUnitsInRectangle is a function that returns the units that are in the rectangl...
