Re: 3.1 rc 3 is now out!

Zydonk, start a new thread with detailed reports on what you like/dislike. It will make discussing issues that others may agree with you on much easier to go over for the devs on what has the highest priority after bugs. Simple enough?? I think that would make me appear as a crank. It's not simply ...

Re: 3.1 rc 3 is now out! and is the end of the world

Has this thread been edited/censored? Do I wield such power and influence that a minor complaint about targeting and the lively correspondence it engendered should be hived off into a new thread with an (ironic? sarcastic?) apocalyptic heading??????? Wow! Can't you do anything better than that? Like...

Re: 3.1 rc 3 is now out!

... If the netcode can be isolated from the rest of 31, could that not be grafted onto 239, and then a new branch started that could then encapsulate other real improvements achieved in 31? I know the 31 tiles do not render well in 239, but that seems a problem with definition only. ... Fine, if yo...

Ironic.
Can't you think that the devs have to do stuff in real life too? They don't get paid for what they do, so don't complain if they can't make many changes fast.
But have time for snafus? People never have time for the drudgery of correction.

Re: 3.1 rc 3 is now out!

I assume that the more pressing problems can be corrected by reinstating the 239 code Not easily, there are years of development between 2.3 and 3.1, and Warzone isn't the best example of well-separated, encapsulated code. Granted. Think of WZ dev as a computer game, with each release like a savega...

Re: 3.1 rc 3 is now out!

Constructive replies here, at last. raycast: comparative criticism of 239 is usually pretty vague, while support for 31 is usually of the "better than it was" variety. The point I press is in part rhetorical - comparing generalities - so that I can always argue that, taken as a whole, the targeting,...

Re: 3.1 rc 3 is now out!

Soooo.... You can't be bothered to help debug the problems, you won't help fix them, and you think 2.3.9, which will always be available, is perfectly fine, but you still want to whine incessantly and insult the developers who try to make other versions of the game? Does that sum up your motivation...

Re: [3.1+] NullBot: an adaptive skirmish AI

Is this not an in/out jam? That can happen with narrow exits and loads of droids. Love dropping a laser shot on them.

Re: 3.1 rc 3 is now out!

Can someone humble himself slightly and DO something about the absurd targeting! Two lines of scourge hps at right angles fronted by a line of pulse towers (to handle borgs). Six cannon tracks make it forward until they are siting right under the towers. The pulses can't get at them, so the tanks t...

Re: Ridiculously Fast Construction

edit: Playing RC3: just noticed that though there is room, the fifth truck of a five-truck team does not spread around the structure under construction. Instead, it will keep trying to nose other trucks out of the way. So, strictly, there is no need for any restriction on truck capability. End of d...

Re: Ridiculously Fast Construction

I'm for the idea of diminishing returns, though I'm not in favor of limiting how many trucks can work on a single building at a time. I mean, if I wanted to build something that's very expensive and time-consuming to build, such as, say, a fortress, Satellite Uplink, or LasSat Command Post, then I'...

Re: Ridiculously Fast Construction

Ever hear of "too many cooks" ? There is no actual truck limit in the current gameplay, and this is only talking about a max-trucks-per-build-target limit, not a "TOTAL trucks" limit. What is wrong with building using all 15 trucks, if that is what someone wants to do? Good luck trying to fit 15 tr...
