Re: How s44 should look. (slow internet warning!)

I DON'T CARE about the fact that the Spring engine's network code is very unsuitable for FPS style of gaming....

I WANT TO RUN FPS AMOK ON THIS MAP!

Just outright unfcuknigbeleivabel! Great job folks!

I'm mighty impressed. Sure, I'm quite easily impressed, but still.

Keep up the good work!

Re: SM3

I realize that you guys are about to take a bold step, entering dangerous terrain of hard labor, suffering and fear by doing the coding needed to make SM3 become reality. At least it seriously looks like that is happening. I can only express my great gratitude over your fearless journey into the unk...

Re: Can anyone make Go for spring?

First knee jerk reaction: Runs and hides. And hides, really, really well at a truly safe place. Then after the shock subsides... crawls back into the stage and follows up Gotas original question with: "Can we also have Chess for Spring as well? And Mah-Jong?! After that... does the only logical thin...

Re: Backwards Movement

Oh. For what it is worth... I am all in favor of having the engine support NATIVELY that units move backwards. Mod developers who think it is critical that unit never moves backwards can skip taking advantage of this new feature, sure, but I'm convinced that Spring 1944 folks would be pretty quick o...

Re: Need a new FPS game

Battlefield 2 is great. I don't know about single player though, it might be ok or not, depending on what you expect from bots. Then there are some fun mods to that one: * Point of Existence 2 (modern warfare Germany vs Ukraine) * Forgotten Hope 2 (WW2 with an ambition) * Project Reality (like BF2 v...

Re: Random WIP

Argh, like your 'wolfen' units. One feature I liked especially were that orange-yellow "lamp" or "eye" a few of them had. Actually, all units but one is having some sort orange-yellow "eyes" or "windows". The exception is that half tracked unit with the tall cannon turret. Perhaps add that "lamp" to...

Re: Map: Vein

Thumbs up! I get warm and fuzzy "Levels v2" feelings over this map... with all steep slopes causing a veritable maze of terrain to deal with. Looks promising, might be a future favorite for Spring44! (Or P.U.R.E 0.55 or Operation Polaris...) Ninja-edit: FPS mode on this map... regardless of vehicle ...

Re: P.U.R.E. is going Commercial.

Good luck with this! It will be intresting to follow where this goes. BTW, is it ok to still enjoy firing up P.U.R.E 0.55? That particular version is quite enjoyable on some fairly low end hardware I insist on running Spring on. But given the huge efforts being invested in the game's development aft...

Re: Subforums for the larger mods

IMHO, there are gaming communities out there that I find far more problematic than the Spring community when considering hostile attitude and lack of constructive behavior. Far more problematic. Argh, I'm a bit puzzled that you are deciding to quit discussing P.U.R.E on this forum and that the creat...

Your Grandchildren will still work on it... Actually, that's one good reason for having a significant other while developing games. To ensure that the supply of required manpower. But you better get a bunch of kids (and make sure they get a bunch kids in turn), otherwise your mod will barely be sta...

Re: Cute WW2 tanky - Now with extra McFancy open mod positions!

But seriously, does the market release anything with a display screen these days that is missing a GPU with at least some sort of graphics? Probably I'm naive, but I thought that the netbooks of today at least had a rudimentary 3D acceleration built in via some low spec, cheap graphics card. But the...

Re: Cute WW2 tanky - Now with extra McFancy open mod positions!

Dramatically limit the number of involved units and the graphical complexity of each and you've probably got far. Then the issue is how to handle the maps, as I don't know to what extent the maps can be made "low-fidelity" in geometry and texture. If the latter can be done, I think a lot is won. If ...

Swift, thanks for your help! I have now issued a "grand opening" for the Spring44 subforum by creating a thread on how to encourage players to ensure that airplanes that are called into combat also survives the mission so they can return home.

Incite for air sortie survival

To avoid that air sorties that are approaching "end of fuel" are more or less sacrificed we can encourage players to let those planes survive and leave the battlefield alive. One way to do it is to implement pilot combat experience, resulting in the "same" airplane reappearing in later air sorties w...
