Re: About moderator policy

I think your question about "motivation" was way too wide and general, where to even begin to answer that? So again: It am giving my opinon on the forum, that is all. Formulate a less vague question if you want more detailed answer. Your motivation in trying to remove smoth and Forb from the spring...

I thought the guy was turning over a new leaf, instead it seems he was just waiting a bit before he resumed his pressure on myself and forb. Knorke my only problem with you, is your problem with me.

Re: About moderator policy

If someone gets banned so often in so short times then there is no more hope that they will ever learn. Imo there have also been postings where even one on its own was enough to show that someone is not willing to be part of the community. What are you suggesting, exactly? Because this could be int...

Re: Should the real economy be changed to match the tooltips

Well, the game clock shows earth seconds and the build bar shows Empyrrean seconds :) It's like local time in London is 12:00 and in Perth 20:00. They are both correct. Edit: One second is the time that elapses during 9,192,631,770 (9.192631770 x 10 9 ) cycles of the radiation produced by the trans...

Re: Which spring engine game is the most popular in multipl

I mean, I could play the game where one cherry-picks games out from the replay site, and I've only spent a few minutes there. I think most autohosts that upload to replays.spring have a 5(?)min limit which filters most (not all) such games. http://replays.springrts.com/replay/df11da542d4edd87ca9daff...

Re: ZK lobby server split is a disaster?

Well, to actually tie it back to the topic, the split of ZK to it's own lobby is neither "bad" nor "a mistake". There are positives and negatives for zk community (as discussed), and positives and negatives for the spring community (as discussed). The zk devs made their decision when they decided th...

Re: ZK lobby server split is a disaster?

Code, math, logic,.. you see room for "opinions" where there is none. 19,700 kg does not convert to 1.938839285714286 tons and a code either works a certain way or it does not. But everything between 19,650 and 19,749 kg rounds to 19,700 kg. We use significant figures because we can only know the w...

Mayby if the game is butt load of refuse then it is better that they wont see it eh? At least butt load of refuse for them not that I think that Zero-K is any bad mind you :) but that is very much subjective. Altrough I must say something: I have been browsing trough the net especially searching fo...

and maybe it only gets five new consistent players.

Re: ZK lobby server split is a disaster?

On its own every single step into seperate lobbys, servers and installers made sense but maybe only because people never looked further ahead than one step. People are looking one step ahead, you look a thousand hypothetical steps in a thousand directions. If every developer fretted so much about t...

Re: Generic CEG effects suitable for any project

A good set of example cegs should have the following requirements: 1) be correct 2) avoid the usual CEG problems: wrong tags, show how to avoid copypasted longcats 3) 1) *also* contain most primitive minimum examples 4) be bundled with explanations 5) cover a wide variety of things instead of the s...

Re: Generic CEG effects suitable for any project

I wouldn't recommend the ZK effect folder to any newbie because it's a complicated mess. You don't want a newbie to try to sort through something like this: https://github.com/ZeroK-RTS/Zero-K/blob/master/effects/napalm.lua Try explaining this line to a newbie: pos = [[r14.1421 y10 -1 x10x10 y10 200...

Re: Generic CEG effects suitable for any project

Those are just some effects like they already exist by the hundreds. They not more or less suited for use as "templates" than many others. Okay, maybe "the explosions really look cool" and for newbies that is impressive. But the games listed as examples here http://springrts.com/wiki/CEG:Defs#Examp...

Re: go play grey goo you slackers!

I'm not really in a rush to pay AAA-level price for a multiplayer game that apparently most people don't know about. I'll probably eventually buy it when it's on sale, the devs have had more time to fix little bugs and put out new features, and the multiplayer community is more established.

Re: go play grey goo you slackers!

Starcraft IMO was less polished. I disagree. Starcraft 2 doesn't have great gameplay imho (barely advanced from 15 years ago), but the one thing that Blizzard knows how to do is polish. I can see this but still better than anything supcom had. Inbefore tech limitations, even at the time the game ca...
