OMG STOP OVERUSING LUA

Post by TradeMark »

I just found out some idiot made a map thats built on lua, even the basic file error checking is made out of lua (if file exists etc).

Now we cant even make a map list without running spring.exe on each map to get the correct map data settings.

You guys rock!

I therefore suggest to myself that we start using replay format thats depended on the map lua and the mod lua and its based on lua completely.

Do you even understand that if maps are made out of lua, and spring version changes, you have to update your fucking map if something was changed in spring that you use in your map lua.

I hate you guys, i really do. You want to make Spring engine with lua.

That has never happened and we have had this feature for little over a year now. All thats changed is the files are exactly the same but in lua table syntax

A lot of game engines use lua, all that's happening here is your throwing a hissy fit because now your finally forced to deal with parsing lua files even though you've known for years that this was coming.

Pick up your toys and get back in the pram already

I find your sites very useful, but i also like lua in maps and mods. I would like to help port this stuff to make it compatible with your site. Got a repo for your site or any other form of source?

You could do that in the spring source code, like the mod reader was done, will help anyone else too then.

Do what in the spring source code, load a lua file and parse the results? It already does that.


And stop expecting people to use a file format that spring itself doesn't understand.

We couldn't be arsed to bother with XML when Lua could already produce perfectly usable data files with the added bonus of allowing functions to compute or change values on the fly.

So you want us to standardize on a custom proprietary format with limitations and potential Atari IP problems?

there is no limitations in adding new features in the formats.
