Re: Some water movement tag related criticism

I understand that solution a would be a gadget, with lots of overhead, yes? You can use Spring.XXX functions in unitscripts, too. (If you need unitID as parameter, the unitID of the unit which runs the script is already stored in a variable named "unitID") Something like script.Create() S...

Re: zero-K on spring server

zero-K on spring server

It could be nice to have an autohost on spring lobby server that runs zero-K. I like to play zK and other spring mods too, but the requirement of seperate lobbies puts me off. When you want to play something else beside the big-teams matches it often requires some waiting to find players: Running tw...

Re: Some water movement tag related criticism

I noticed is that hover units that enter water move straight into the upright no matter how deep, or rather shallow they are, i think they should only do this when bellow or equal waterline, which looks very odd but also makes unit movements unnatural which may have a minimal impact on gameplay. Wh...

Re: Rage about moderation

If you split threads then a link and slightly more neutral title would be nice. feel free to change it. done. :regret: Yes, but you made yourself moderator because by power of having control over forum. Which to me is not bad even, but such "self-promotion" contradicts the claims how all ...

If you split threads then a link and slightly more neutral title would be nice.

Moderators raging when their fails are mentioned

Historically moderator appointments are nominated by the public in a transparent and democratic fashion, then the current moderator team elects from the the nominations. Wrong, moderation was never organized enough for something like that. 1) abma has 'technical' access to forum and server, how did...

Re: Let's learn from Wesnoth and think about the future of spring

Knorke, remember that testgame, that you, emanuel and i had in jw. That was the only game of jw that ever got played. Realistic perspective, aka as looking down, is the stuff that kills you. I remember that. But I do not remember that you denied all the bugs that it obviously had. I also do not rem...

What do you want to analyze? Is there anyone left who still does not know about "where the user got stuck"? Maybe read almost every single review ever? The problems are known since years, it is slowly being worked - all good. However there is always dumb "marketing attempts" wher...

Myself and Smoth have nearly always been on the pro-lua isde, so no, not "the same people". (This is not an invitation for you to quote us out of context in 2005 or something, disclaimer: stress the nearly .) If anything is taking things from "2005" out of context then it is the...

There is no hindsight: All that has happend in past years was predicated and little of it is a suprise. Staying positive has nothing to do with repeating the same obvious mistakes, while learning nothing from it because only seeing world through rose-tinted glasses. And after the damage is done act ...
