Re: Include 'crans-java-ai' in main build?

Hmm, what also puzzles me is 'energyMake' isn't provided either, but it's set in the unitdef lua files. Mods can have a file unitdefs_post.lua that alters all the unitdefs during loading. zero-K has such a file , it seems to set energyMake of units to zero, probally to use its own scripted resource...

Re: LogFlush

Did not test but think new LogFlushLevel=0 is like old LogFlush=1 because https://github.com/spring/spring/commit/e4b9326c8d335647939213063daf2d1d4df385b6 remove LogFlush, introduce LogFlushLevel: when a log-message with level >= LogFlushLevel is logged, logfile is flushed, else not, see rts/System/...

Re: Mood is a thing for

The Spring.UnitScript.AttachUnit things still works in 98, so seems to be something with that script/model/mod. There was too much other error spam to test the map. The sync/unsynced seperation got changed a bit and requires "stricter" use of if gadgetHandler:IsSyncedCode() then ... else... I assume...

Re: What to do with vulcan?

Long games can reach a state where no progress is made. It can be fun to attack with massive waves of T2 tanks,bots or planes but when even those stop working...then what? It is good to have a weapon that can still make a difference because eventually every game has to come to an end. Buzzsaw/Vulcan...

Re: discussion of chili menu for games

I have tried to discuss as contructively as I could: with reasons, posted code, examples,.. There is fundamental difference in goals: You seem to want things to be mostly as they are, set up like a 'hub' for a spring player to play different spring games. I want games to be able to stand on there ow...

Re: Making maplists

Nice. :) Maybe too many lists? Imo could be: [1v1] [teams] [bigteams] [ffa] Teamsizes are not so strict I think. (some maps have start mexes for 3v3 but we play them 2v2 or 4v4 too, without problems) The start of maplist discussion was this: Some XTA players remember enough mapnames from head to pic...

Re: Posting rules / hints

don't make a problem which isn't one. first find a user who needs to post in community blog, is not a spammer and doesn't fit into the existing groups. That is backwards. For example there is the imo big potential of player-created content. Any random player who uploads videos, makes a wallpaper wr...

Re: Spring needs to have a officially Infrastructure

Much text about Spring-that, Spring-this. Seems to me technology is advancing at okay pace, sadly it is abused: New features could improve and grow the Spring Eco system but people are too egocentric and shortsighted and greedy to cooperate on that. Instead of makig "Spring" better everybody seems f...

Re: discussion of chili menu for games

We are discussing a "SPRING menu" and you talk about things that "completely ignore the entire spring ecosystem"... You don't get it. In this scenario Spring wouldn't distribute .exe files. I perfectly get that. You want the option to make seperate game-installer and distribute them. As if history ...

Now as far as your questions about what is 'spring menu' in my picture.

For example, i can click guard a unit and the folllow up commandos are what? Fallbacks when it is destroyed? Yup. Once the guarded unit is destroyed the guard will move on to next command. My hate-favorite are constructors: give several buildorders, one order is guard the factory - but "guarding th...

And seperate post, because I really hope you (Funkencool) mean the same thing: "rename spring.exe into nameofgame.exe" isn't even possible right now , much less necessary. As of right now it would just launch into springs default menu, no matter what. It is possible right now. Obviously renaming spr...
