Re: Is it possible to kick players during the game?

<quote truncated> Then there is the player Fenrir, he accused me of cheating because I built VTOLs, when the previous game he had left them on, and been told and shown he left them on. In the lobby to that game, I asked him to keep them on.... Luckily, he was not a quitter, just a trash talker, and...

Re: 2.3.5_rc1 and beyond

How 2.3 works, when you tell a tank to go somewhere, your client makes the tank move immediately, and tells the other clients to move the tank. The other clients then move the tank, but a bit later. So each client thinks the tanks are in slightly different places. Thanks to the butterfly effect , a ...

Re: ok, how do you unpause the game while cheating?

neither of those work. There is an icon up in the right corner that has a bunch of z"s on it with a 0 displayed next to it (like indicating the game is sleeping, maybe waiting for something?) I can move around and click on stuff but it never resumes... Hmmm, sounds like you were switching players i...

Re: stuck in alpha_11

It says to stop any tanks from escaping, and a red dot blinks. I go to the red dot, make sure no tanks drive off the map (never mind the enemy tanks driving past, since they weren't trying to drive off the map, so I could worry about them later). Another red dot then lit up, top right. I send tanks ...

Re: Hovertanks

... Interestingly, a photon will never reach the speed of light in a vacuum, as a true vacuum would have to completely devoid of mass/energy, BUT that would mean that the speed of light in a vacuum would equal 0, as per c = (e/m) ^ (0.5). E=mc² is only valid for things that aren't moving. If someth...

Re: Radar minimap appearance

Burning oil well radar blips now burn instead of pulsing, see bottom row of burning blips . (Disclaimer: I'm not a graphics designer.)

It's more to show when it's stopped burning, so that you know you can finally tell the truck you sent there to start building.

Radar minimap appearance

How should the radar minimap look? Oil wells blink on the radar. Should burning oil wells also blink or not? (Burning oil wells don't blink patch , oil well dots on fire patch .) Should the map look as it is now, or with dark lines showing where tanks can't go? Or different? (Dark lines where tanks ...

Re: AI Truck Copycats

I usually delete the starting truck design once I use a different type of truck. How is the Ai affected by that? Philipp Then the AI builds deleted trucks O_o. Which eventually results in random hard to debug crashes, usually a long time later. It should be fixed in the next beta... For now, player...
