Re: Is it fun to lock threads?

My time in the spring community as a game developer was a misserable period of my life where I had to deal with a massively toxic community from the *a players. I was relentlessly hounded by whole CLANS. I bear them no grudge but HONESTLY this community needed a moderator to come in a dick kick it. ...

Re: great discussion on ballance.

NOT to pick at an old grudge. but one of the key disagreements I used to have with argh about his nanomachines game was that he tried too hard to achieve "perfect" balance but people are imperfect and they are not going to be mathematically accurate or precise in their gaming.

Re: Inverse Kinematics animations for Spring in Blender

Cause i'm used to it. You can change out the lines to lua, or just convert it, or even submit a PR ;) <3 bos -> lua is no biggie :P could one script some kind of an "anim LOD"? where units off-screen only receive major sim-frame updates every 30 frames or something animations are synced

Re: Computer Science books changed my perspective

I forget the book but it was a text book with a turtle on it. in the first paragraph they talked about cs being about "abstraction" detailed what abstraction was and I dunno why, but it stuck with me and changed my view of things to their core.

Honestly pathetic on the part of total warfare. If we would have gotten some shareback I would not have been as pissed about it.

Open request for acess to jk git stuff

Can I go through and patch these up? Or at least port over the patches(assuming I can get the fixers permission) to your git? pulling the "latest" version of your code out of ZK should not be, it is an old behavior that makes us as a community look shabby and thrown together. Plus zk has z...

Re: model.name is something different now?

Yes, UnitDefs[n].model.name became (after a slight detour) UnitDefs[n].modelname for performance reasons: https://github.com/spring/spring/blob/develop/doc/changelog.txt#L247 In case you missed it and to avoid doing potential double work, grab the latest maintenance build instead of 104.0: https://...

Anyway. there is a call to unitdef[uid].model. local name = UnitDefs[self.unitDefID].model.name name which i never used before, was this replaced? a forum search pulls up iffy results so I ...
