Re: [game][Evolution RTS] New Resource Bar?

eh I always find it weird when supply isn't just a number like Starcraft "Supply 5/10" should suffice, and it should come last

Re: Access to springinfo.info or @SpringRTSNews twitter

Possibly, but it would be error prone, and it'd require manual intervention, as well as custom code to assign a game to each individual person so it could be tagged correctly. There's also the problem of titles, some posts in Random WIP have no text, or the text makes no sense as a post title. Heave...

Re: Access to springinfo.info or @SpringRTSNews twitter

Im actually for handing out all the tools to all the people. The worst thing is usually per default happening. Nothing besides the usual. Currently Spring News is Zero-K only news. The first non zero-k news are on page 4. I think everyone who can deliver by proof of quality should get a chance to p...

Re: Access to springinfo.info or @SpringRTSNews twitter

hmm which feeds and what are their details? I'm not so fond of handing out twitter access to anyone, the social media profiles are all automated and tweet out new stuff that appears on springinfo.info, which itself pulls from RSS, so you'd have to mention these things via the RSS feeds pulled in

Re: Shard 0.4/dev

Currently working on a new building placement algorithm at https://github.com/tomjn/Shard/pull/144 Currently it uses the game engines closestbuildsite in shard native, and when running as a gadget in a game it uses an algorithm taken I think from CRAIG that tests positions using expanding circles.

TBH something built with Jekyll would probably suffice, or the Node static site generator, WP might be handy but who cba maintaining that

Re: What exactly do current game developers want?

- A half decent CLI interface to Unitsync info - A nice way of fetching minimaps without needing to mess around with bytes and RGB values, I miss the old unitsync JPEG generator function - Listing stuff in PR Downloader, the docs are clear on how to grab a game/map but not so much on how to find out...

Re: Tabula Rasa Spring aka New User Experience

The game lobbies and their setups are all counter intuitive, and built from the perspective of somebody who already has them set up building an installer. They need to onboard users and explain how to get a game going, which none of them do. Users are just jumped into that paradigm without explanati...

Re: ValidAIs.lua

Perhaps an engine dev can weigh in, I know the tests have helped with Shard, but for non-AI purposes what does having an automated gameplay test do to help engine development?

Re: Shard 0.4/dev

Shard now has an AILoader.lua gadget, and should run as a LuaAI if you copy the files in the right place and put a LuaAI.lua in the archive root. BA mutator containing Shard McShardFace attached as an example, you may encounter issues using it https://springrts.com/phpbb/download/file.php?mode=view&...

There's only one way to find out. Fork one of the Java/Python/C++ AIs and do stuff with Tensorflow or one of the other frameworks

Re: ValidAIs.lua

If AAI/RAI/etc aren't bundled with the engine they're basically dead Good, let them die. They have some value in that they fight bitrot in the AI interface. +1, engine builds run tests with all the AIs, without the native AIs these would no longer happen. These can catch other issues that wouldn't ...

Re: ValidAIs.lua

I'm open to compromises, I simply disagree that validAIs.lua is a healthy option as it eliminates a lot of academic and hobbyist options that got AI working in the first place I prodded you forcefully to turn Shard into a LuaAI Instead, you threw a giant tantrum, threatened to delete Shard, it's rep...

Re: ValidAIs.lua

That's exactly one of the huge problems. AI devs want all of the access but none of the responsibility. For the longest time we had all of the responsibility, and little to no cooperation. At some point I realized that in order to not have outside issues effect my game and my players, I had to forc...

True, so I'd like to be able to say my AI does not support EvoRTS

Re: ValidAIs.lua

You can host your own mutators that support your AI, name them "Evo with Shard AI" or something and take the support burden onto yourself. There is absolutely no need to expose the already small number of newbies we get to crashy AIs (that happen to be at the top of the AI list) and then for Forb t...

Re: ShardLua games configurations dev

It doesn't solve the duplicate code across multiple GitHub repos problem, but yes the gadget would need to go inside the game itself. I think the end goal is a shard.sdz that other games could depend on. That way they can include the game specific stuff themselves and depend on shard.sdz for the cor...
