Re: What about an extremely limited game

Hi Yes, although I am not 100% what excact system you want, that seems possible. Spring comes with scripting interface (http://springrts.com/wiki/Lua_Scripting) and with that the game is quite customizable anything at all. For example there is a function Spring.SetUnitPostion which allows to move un...

Re: Lua "tutorial" guide..blob thing?

gradient in color or difficulty? about look of wiki can not do much. syntax highlighting might come if wiki gets updated , would be nice. Think for oneliners/short pieces one can do without and ideally the reader has whole script in own editor anyway...

Re: GURL

but lobby doesn't do things magically, it relies on rapid, plasma and similar stuff. From user perspective it is magic ;) And it should be magic because magic means easy and "happens in background without having to worry about it." Imo tell-the-lobby-what-to-download-links are not nessecary, might ...

Re: GURL

In all current lobbies if you try to join a battleroom then the lobby will download all files you need. (map, game, engine) Why this need for tools and menus and special installers when the lobby already does everything? So clicking such link should just open the lobby which then joins the room. If ...

Re: Lua "tutorial" guide..blob thing?

gajop: I know. ;) Imo it is personal preference and not so important. Often I do the if ( ) because imo it helps recognizes conditions faster when scrolling. When it is just check for nil or similiar, if isReady then or if label ~= "" then then I tend to leave the ( ) out. :arrow: Imo focus is not o...

Re: Lua "tutorial" guide..blob thing?

yea, without AllowUnsafeChanges. It just survived in so many places :/ --- Having LuaRules / LuaGaia as two seperate Lua states is nice, but could also be used for different purposes...like I dont know, the AI in LuaGaia, so one can reload it without messing up rest of the game. Is it possible to ha...

Re: Lua "tutorial" guide..blob thing?

That was my thinking too, however it always seemed more like a "guide line" than strict requirement. Last I tried I had iirc to include two files with map like: draw.lua: VFS.Include("LuaGadgets/gadgets.lua",nil, VFS.BASE) main.lua: if AllowUnsafeChanges then AllowUnsafeChanges("USE AT YOUR OWN PERI...

Re: Lua "tutorial" guide..blob thing?

Oh. Was 50-50 whether to check spelling of that. 'teach a man to fish' yes, excactly. New text is about more gadget and a bit widget and how to use that to make a Pfffp who puts features onto a map. Think that is somewhat often asked question and code is still relatively simpe, so makes good topic t...

Re: [website] server change on 05. Nov, expect an outage!

Is something with the wiki not set up right yet? When trying to upload an image: Upload warning Could not create directory "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/4/40". Or sometimes also: Upload warning Could not open lock file for "mwstore://local-backend/local-public/b/b4". Could not open lock file...

- get rid of unused stuff (installed software / data / ...) In springrts.com/dl/ is many old files. Looking around is like Indiana Jones, many interessting old things can be found.

Re: Lua "tutorial" guide..blob thing?

thanks again for the feedback, there were many good points. I wrote a second tutorial-text-blob. Newbies are sometimes told "go unpack some mod and make a simple gadget" - this is supposed to be the guide to that. :arrow: http://springrts.com/wiki/User:Knorke/Sandbox2 :arrow: It assumes previous rea...

Re: Chili repository

I mean, if I could do things like: progressBar myprogressBar = new progressBar("grey"); In principle it is like that, just that the progressBar needs some more parameters than just "grey". A progress bar might be something like: myprogressBar = Progressbar:New{ parent = window, y = 8, x = 10, width...

This means lobby will be down for a bit?

Re: Standalone Featureplacer

It's also probably the only available ingame tool that can be used to make maps (heightmap, texture, features), so I don't see how it's "too much". That it does more than just mapping is true, but irrelevant. That said, I still need to solve issue 42 that would allow me to export in it all in a for...
