I don't know the guy but his name itself raises more red flags than 1956 China.

Re: Reliably setting feature and unit IDs on creation

Asking that IDs are both choose-able and permanent with 100% reliability is not compatible with asking that they are also unique; the engine has to have the option to say "sorry, the ID you want is already in use" This wouldn't be a problem if you could recycle the ID immediately, without having to...

Re: Reliably setting feature and unit IDs on creation

The delay makes any solution very inelegant though. Blinking out of existence (even for 3 frames) can have minor gameplay consequences but, more importantly, is just very unpolished visually and looks like a bug. What if Spring.DestroyUnit had an extra boolean parameter that just hard-removed the un...

Re: Delay of code execution to next frame during pause

I think the way to handle projectiles would be to add a toggle that prevents collision to the engine, and then do that + freeze them with SetProjectileMoveControl. Making decals not linger after you delete a building (since they normally need time to decay) would also ideally be achieved if there wa...

Re: Reliably setting feature and unit IDs on creation

Because you can't modify a unit ID after it has been created so everything that uses these IDs would have to do the extra step of translating the ID.

Re: Reliably setting feature and unit IDs on creation

What *is* their purpose, then? What's the point of allowing to give a specific ID to `CreateUnit` if it won't even work in the most obvious use case?

Re: Delay of code execution to next frame during pause

In SpringBoard, it is often necessary to delay execution of code to the next frame. It's not limited to SpringBoard. Many callins disallow recursion (eg no CreateUnit in UnitCreated, no GiveOrder in CommandFallback, etc) so you are forced delay the call. I think it would be good to allow recursion ...

Re: Can we get an autoban plugin?

I think the better use for such system would be to make reports for a human to handle it, not ban by itself. Overzeal is alright when it has no direct consequences but I don't think the community is big enough to be able to afford false positives that result in a ban. This is especially true when th...

Re: Can we get an autoban plugin?

I find it somewhat disturbing that there isn't something in place already.
Ah yes, the default config is very niggardly, it's hard for players to peacefully have a gay time without naggers interrupting.

Re: Hiding system info/specifications from spring/Balanced Annihilation

If someone needs this information to help someone then the info can be sent by a single click
Not that simple. New people generally leave if they crash, which doesn't leave much opportunity to ask them to submit their info to help future people with same hardware.

unbind movefast and moveslow?

Re: What can spring engine/game devs learn from negative reviews of evo rts on steam?

Is it possible for a game dev to enforce hardware requirements by giving errors if it fail to meet hardware requirements? The engine does provide some info about hardware . A lobby (such as Chobby) could kinda enforce it by not starting games in the first place but would need to have info from the ...

Re: Discord My Content

That is not a given, but something that can be decided upon. I see three alternatives here: some channels are considered public by consensus. This is the solution that is currently in place. Until now, nobody actually using those channels seemed to mind chat being archived (and some enjoyed the con...
