Re: Guardian Map

I like the idea of asymmetric maps. Not all players are equal.

Re: WARZONE-CONTEST 2016 (WZ-CON)

Just so everyone is clear, this contest is NOT associated with the Warzone 2100 Project.

Any arrangements (including any payments) are between YOU and the contest promoter.

Re: Petition to reinstate Guard, Persue and Hold orders!

no there are two modes
And now we are back to Per's complaint that there is no common understanding of what Pursue should do.

In order to code this, we need a comprehensive description of how orders should work. Or at least a set of use cases describing the various scenarios.

Re: Petition to reinstate Guard, Persue and Hold orders!

pursue means it should go out and attack the first target it detects
That sounds more like Patrol + Fire At Will, rather than Pursue. Pursue implies some specific target.

Re: Compiling for CentOS 7

Just a reminder that in addition to the libphysfs package, you will also need the -dev or -devel package in order to compile. Call me Capt. Obvious!

Re: Release 3.2.0 beta1

Internet polls are a terrible way to make decisions about anything. Example: the British research ship which did NOT get named Boaty McBoatface despite that being the clear winner in internet voting. As for 'the community', this typically refers to the small but vocal minority of WZ players (check t...

Re: multiplayer new version

When trying to troubleshoot a problem, it is always good to describe the exact problem you are having. Include the text of any error messages.

Otherwise, someone is bound to post a link to ESR's How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

That sounds like a fun thing to work on. Do you have any note or design thoughts, Per?

Re: Can I add sensors on my map?

I like the idea of starting with a sensor droid.
Me, too! And maybe VTOL sensors available later on after the propulsion is researched.

Re: Score/Stats/Rank Log-in system to join WZ

Let's call the 99,98 % to join our community !
Let me play Devil's Advocate and suggest you flip that around:

Let's try to be the community the other 99.98% of Warzone players want to join.

Re: XP sp3 get removed ?

disclaimer: I'm not involved with the Windows builds. Microsoft stopped supporting XP 2 years ago. Our Windows builds are cross-compiled in a Linux environment. Has anyone tried to compile Warzone in an actual XP environment? Likely a bit of work building all the necessary libraries, but I suspect i...

Re: Highly recommend add "hosts blacking function" to lobby

Would you care to describe in more detail how this might work? How is the blacklist created and maintained. Do you have a way to keep the list from being gamed by the usual techniques that mess up on-line voting and polls? IMHO, the root problem with on-line play is identity. Player Name is easily c...
