Re: springfiles server down?

Yes, apparently it's been down for a few days. Hopefully it'll be restored soon.

Re: [misc] springfiles.com maintenance

The server-side code would need to reply with all matches not just the top 10. Atm one can narrow down the search by adding more key words and using "*". Perhaps the client side code should replace spaces with "*".

I agree with the "size in MB" too.

PR "soon".

Re: Spring's Broken Windows

Ok, but those quotes are from 2008.That's over 13 years ago. I'm pretty sure that today, most of the people quoted would either be nicer or at least refrain from posting. The fact that Forb hated on TA-derived works in the past doesn't imply that the contributions to BA 10 were done with bad intent....

Re: Archsimkats Valley V1

Map looks very nice, and should also play nice, Thanks!

issues :
- uneven metal amounts: a lot of spots are off by about ~5% compared to their symmetrical counterpart
- one of the south-eastern start positions is wrongly set to northeast

Re: Next engine features poll

1) Metal Factions (playerbase: over 9...thousand) 2) Preserve player base. I can change to the newer version at a later stage. Players with decade-old toasters or low end laptops will eventually upgrade in a few years 3) Depends on how significant the gains are and the difficulty of implementation 4...

Re: The end of the maintenance branch

minor nitpick : why not "105.0 -> 106.0 -> 107.0" instead of "105.0 -> 105.1 -> 106.0"?

Re: The end of the maintenance branch

on MF we can't switch to either BAR or develop engines as some players don't meet the GL4 requirement yet. Either way, it seems to me that the best course of action would be to move/rename the currently inactive develop branch and merge the BAR branch's code into the new develop branch. The maintena...
