Ah, but that is all in the adjustment. You can have an ergonomic desk layout, but the screen itself is not inherently ergonomic. This reminds me of some headphones I saw that were 'digital-ready' Not all of it is the desk layout though. The ability to tilt and adjust the screen height, and the scre...

Lua unit rendering

Ive heard alot about rendering units through Lua, and it just so happens that SWS has a need for it. Ive got the script mostly working, with just a few things to finish up. Firstly, I can draw the unit model, but it doesn't look like an actual unit. It has not got the proper shading, lighting and re...

A Lua way of doing it is definately possible, I know. Gnome stated that i knew how. I was just wondering, why cant this be an engine thing? We have canAttack, canBuild, canMove, canEverythingElse, but not canSelfDestruct. It just seems slightly unnecessary to have yet another Lua gadget running to b...

Im in the middle of exams right now. They will be finished in two weeks. I will start working on TD again after exams, but there is other stuff I want to do as well. Expect more from me (and smoth hopefully, if he gets the time off from Life) over the next few months :-)

If your removing unit textures, that will then make the unit model invalid, causing the unit they are trying to cache become invalid, causing that widget to crash, causing that there ...
