Re: Gfx help needed

Now that's smart thinking right there! You may have to make sure that it wont cause any problems if the text if much larger than the 2 characters "go" has, not all languages have words that are as small as "go". you're right, but i'll bet most cultures will have either an abbreviation, word, or sym...

Re: The Future of RTS...& the 7 Deadly Sins

In SVN, have we switched over to using SQLite, for any data import, or are we still using the plaintext files?

Re: New Terrain

I like the new terrain textures very much, except for the foliage/plant life. It looks weird especially being flat, besides, there shouldn't be plant life in WZ should there? Chernobyl. plant life is fine, animals will still die or suffer mutation to this day. isn't that because the plants have ver...

Re: WZ2100-esque

It's not unfeasible to make a wz-2100-esque game with graphics that good (or better) that would run on the same machines that the source engine is targetted for (or even using the source engine, though for oft-discussed reasons, this team isn't going to use the source engine as long as it's not FOSS...

Re: Animated .pies

I've worked with them a bit. The normal campaign-available cyborg legs do not use trans/ani animation, just the simple frame-based animation, however the heavy/assault cyborgs (forget the name) available in at least the 1.11 and 1.12 mods do use trans animation. I have also made 'centaur' cyborgs th...

Re: Foundations on buildings

Kage - I just looked at the source for terrain drawing again, and I am pretty sure we draw building base plates on top of whatever terrain is there already. However, it would be rather easy, with the current drawing code, that is, to not do this, although we would have to find solutions for buildin...

Re: Foundations on buildings

If the structure is set to be a defense structure, then the structure will conform to the terrain. If the structure is anything else (with a mat), the terrain will be flattened, and the structure will be placed on top. Thus for most buildings, the terrain will end up being flat around it. But to ans...

Re: Basic warzone .txt editor (not released yet)

So after all stats have been moved to an SQL database, is a WZCK-like tool still needed? Or is an SQL-editor user-friendly enough for warzone modders? I'm not really a mod-maker myself, but if I remember correctly WZCK had a way to preview .PIE files, and other warzone-specific things... cool... i ...

Re: DRAMA

Why not at least just release it as GPL like you folks said you would so that maybe the WRP or other fan developers can work it into into the open sources and then build and improve on what you have accomplished? :-S :( hmmmmm? So it sounds like the 2200 developers negotiated a seperate source rele...

Re: What would you want to see for the next release cycle? VOTE!

I voted for 2.2, but with an important note: we shouldn't postpone it any further than that.

The kicker for me was the savegame compatibility -- if I were doing a campaign, and were a typical end-user, that would be especially important to me.

Re: Done?

What is that supposed to mean? They were designed for 320x240. While 640x480 isn't that bad, the higher up you go, the uglier it gets. As a stop gap measure, we can just play the movies at 1:1. At the very least, it provides the full campaign content to more users sooner, then if we wait for new mo...
