Re: go play grey goo you slackers!

within the confines of a standard RTS Yeah, the vibe I get from the gameplay videos is that it's kind of a poor-mans Starcraft with some "conservative innovation". The effects and artwork are all nice and well-made, but not particularly characteristic or distinctive. Some reviews said the story was...

Re: go play grey goo you slackers!

I'm actually disappointed; in my head I expected the grey goo faction to be way more grey-goo like. :(

Re: ZK lobby server split is a disaster?

All games through one hub is Springs USP I'm pretty sure that Zero-K is openly-licensed enough that it can still be packaged in a Spring Bundle, and hosted on the spring server*. Nothing as far as the USP is lost. Really this all just boils down to the dedicated ZK players moving to a different ser...

Re: Questions for RAAAR side conversation.

Once I'm back from holiday break, I can play some S44 and KP with you also as they definitely deserve some attention.

Re: Questions for RAAAR side conversation.

Mini-rant; if this is too off-topic, smoth, I can delete. Some of the issues are a matter of opinion. For example, i get annoyed in games with only one faction because that means that the opponent can fight you by using the same units you have. There's added depth from knowing the unit set the oppon...

Re: Questions for RAAAR side conversation.

*** BAR is inevitably going to replace BA, so I think BAR should be critiqued in its place.

*** Try to avoid critiquing based on "personal preference"; this should be about the average player's experience

Re: Total Annihilation 2 is alive

FWIW Knorke, I didn't intend for you to take any remarks about Spring Tanks personally. And I might have also contributed a dozen or so times to ZK, but some of that benefited other spring games as well and I have no particular loyalty to ZK. I want everything in Spring to succeed. I still disagree ...

Re: Total Annihilation 2 is alive

The player goes to steam, install "zero-K", gets a "play zero-K" entry in his steam-list, gets a "play zero-K" icon on his desktop. Then he starts lobby, has disabled the filter (like 99% of players eventually do) and joins a BA game. And his gametime in steam will be logged to wrong game too. THAT...

Re: Total Annihilation 2 is alive

It is like that anyway. You use one downloader-updater-thing (say steam) to install another downloader-updater-thing (some spring game's lobby) that then downloads more stuff. Might as well be honest about it. It's not about honesty or dishonesty, it is about giving the user the experience he wants...

Re: Total Annihilation 2 is alive

This game runs on the springRTS network. To play install spring and meet us in ingame. Feels to the user like it's using one game as a way to force additional software/games on them. (Similar to being forced to install Steam or Origin for just the one game you want) Notice how zero-K is described a...

Re: Total Annihilation 2 is alive

Or can you tell me why each spring game needs a seperate installer and its own lobby? Because advertising a game as "Zero-K: A futuristic RTS with unique balance and unit variety " and "BAR: A true fan-made successor to the original Total Annihilation " is waaaay sexier than advertising as "Spring:...

Re: Total Annihilation 2 is alive

For Spring Tanks though: * Not included in the games page * Subforum shows no new posts in over a year * Wiki page shows "Outdated!" warning * Latest version is confirmed to work with Spring 94.1 * No commits in over a year Which is why I think this: Come on. guys, let's be honest - Spring has a cha...

Re: Total Annihilation 2 is alive

Originally you said about other mod: "couldn't even tell you if it is even compatible with the latest version of spring." Imo it is the same with zero-K: As of right now, in lobby there is no zK host with current stable engine. All hosts are 91.0, one is 96.0 and "BETA TEST" room is using a 98.01.x...

Re: Unit tesslation?

It's just fine as merely an observation. I may observe that the sun is currently setting outside my window, and I'm surprised the sky is clear and not cloudy.

I was just letting you know that it has no meaning as a supporting argument for adding a certain feature.

Re: Unit tesslation?

You literally talked about Wargame: Red Dragon and Total War: Shogun 2 having unit tessellation.

X = Wargame: Red Dragon, Total War: Shogun 2
Y = unit tessellation

Re: Unit tesslation?

There is no unit tessellation, although spring can automatically make 2D billboards of units for when you are zoomed out far. For future reference, never say "but X game does Y!". Spring will never be able to stack up purely feature-to-feature against AAA engines or games. Spring games rely on the f...

Re: Total Annihilation 2 is alive

I don't see it played, I don't know if I could find someone to play it with me, and I couldn't even tell you if it is even compatible with the latest version of spring. That describes every spring mod in existence, including the ones on steam, except BA. :regret: Zero-K is compatible with the laste...
