Re: gui layout

I've fiddled with the GUI layout a bit and got to this: https://springrts.com/phpbb/download/file.php?mode=view&id=9889 some issues still exist: 1) The gap in the unit state menu is annoying EDIT: I've moved it to right under the minimap, seems like a great place :) 2) The Eco/Battle/Fac buttons ch...

Re: quality of posts (split)

sadly very little pay off exists for the person in question that spends hours and hours on these types of things I guess it depends, I always thought of writing lua addons as much like solving crossword puzzles, logic/comprehension puzzles that don't get repetitive but don't need deep thinking eith...

Re: quality of posts (split)

There's a lot of work that can be done with the wiki and documentation that can help in this regard. We've been good at maintenance, but what we're maintaining is aimed at people already here, it's a little cryptic to new people. Sadly, a high level plan and approach to documentation is something n...

Re: Vulkan has been released

I had a look at the LunarG SDK samples since nvidia already released their drivers as well. http://lunarg.com/vulkan-sdk/ It is much lower level than opengl at a first glance(it was to be expected), granted i haven't programmed anything with it just looked at the supplied samples. Also a friend of m...

Re: My adventures with Bidirectional path tracing (Update ->) vertex connection and merging

Last time i checked, it comes with tenth of examples that you can tune right away and that you can display right after you compile the bins. All in real time (ok, depends on the resolution you use) You can even run it on CPU (optix prime) if you want to integrate it in your C++ code. You don't need...

Re: Ashes of the singularity

Im afraid that the game will be released too soon and bashed with bad reviews at launch date. Stardock has a bad habbit of releasing unfinished games and then spending years working on them. The latest galactic civilizations showed how unreleased the game was. Ashes currently has a lot of control is...

Re: Homeworld: Desert of Kharak

I think its a very well developed game, but the price for what it offers is a bit too high imo. Like the core of the gameplay is good, the campaign is also interesting on the hardest difficulty, but multiplayer lacks maps and maybe some unit variety and the skirmish AI is bad. The devs have confirme...

Re: Status on BAR + repo links

Ok, i just find it strange. I was playing Planetary annihilation the other day and found some people waiting for BAR to be released, like they think you cant play it at all. I also bet a lot of people that play BA currently are also waiting for BAR's release but dont know they can already get their ...

Or do you just enjoy maintaining BA so much now? :) nah, I am maintaining BA only because I love it! Maybe you are applying sarcasm here.. I am not sure :-D And I like BA models more then models from BAR: 1) I feel sick from spinning in diff directions at things 2) Take a look at fido and maverick ...

Re: Status on BAR + repo links

=P, we just want to get our hands on it. Well to be honest we can host games, but the thing that i wanted to know is when is the regular BA being replaced by BAR so that we can truly start playing it :wink: And pls dont tell me its up for the auto host owners to decide when to convert, and that they...

Re: Fragmentum must play for all designers

Spring fans must say spring is better but I bet Fragmentum is faster. I think fragmentum looks like a shitty sandbox game. I was just going to post that it isn't my kind of game but you are comparing a sandbox game to an engine... seriously spring can do MUCH more than fragmentum can. Stop thinking...

Re: go play grey goo you slackers!

I love this game, play it! One of the best RTS`s out there atm. This game imo is better than all the C&C`s before it iam having a blast! The factions are unique, more unique than you think theres a lot of strategy involved in picking the tech. To the ones that say this game has no micro clearly you ...

Re: Planetary Annihilation (Incoming Moon Drops!)

ranked 1v1 is always fun, also i play with the [tN] tag over there so if you want add me ;)

The game in my opinion is an average RTS with the old TA style economy, but the 1v1 scene is active thats why i play it.

But an increase in texture resolution in some places wouldnt hurt, unless these objects are meant to be looked at from a distance.
