Type "Merowingg Map" instead of "Merowingg's Maps" you'll get more results.

What I try to say is that you ask us to code a search engine better then google. While I see some possibilities with specialised keywords and such, I also know how much time it would take. I doubt nobody will ever do that simply because google is satisfying enough.

I have always used search, its just not the same as it provides tons of false positives.

NoQ wrote:So you want to have a new feature because you don't know how to use the existing one? Hmm. :hmm:
Still, i agree that Addons should be made more convenient to use, for example adding categories or different sorting types, and once it is done, an addon search form will be necessary.
I think the idea is to look for something better, exchange opinions and views with what exists and what is proposed. The analysis of these will allow us to determine what might be best for the game.
Without any hint of criticism of what is available today, as it would be easy, but not representative of the intent of this.
All that so far have given their opinions, are old warriors of Warzone 2100. In one way or another have contributed to bring this game to get to where it is today.
Let me express an idea about it.
Suppose for a moment that we have a house that our parents gave us.
This fulfills its function.
But .... we would like to make some arrangements to improve it.
I dare to mention that this is the idea of ​​this project itself.
I continue with the idea, change a wall, checking the foundation, roof, touch up paint, changing the distribution, and so on.
First, you should determine what is good and functions properly according to your way of life.
Suppose, determine what is right or wrong.
As an area unknown to me, ask advice and ideas.
Determine what satisfies me and what does not.
The right person executes the plans for the project. Search those indicated for their execution and work.
It seems logical and simple. As long as you live alone.
If I live with my family and friends, to agree will be more difficult as everyone will have their opinion and views the same or different to mine or your own.
In this situation the only solution will be, like it or not agree to achieve a common goal. discuss ideas for ways to implement them, and so on.
Sounds like Warzone 2100 ?
What is the problem of hearing possible solutions, consider the solutions that arise in this forum open to the community, even as a starting point of a conversation and not dismiss it, whether good or bad. Just as an idea.
Personally I think not only in this case but repeatedly in this forum responses to ideas, suggestions or simply views are accompanied by "do it ... link"
Idea and implementation are two different things.
Is my idea, opinion like to others or not.
I ask not implement it, just knowing other opinions.
No obligation to have an idea and develop skills.
I'm surprised the other hand specific questions to the game itself, its execution problems for your operating system receiving a proper response. The most important thing is that they assume the ignorance of the questioner on the issue as something normal in this type of forum.
In my experience, never, to name a few, Zarel, Lav-Coyote, MacUser, responded with a "do it ... link" answer.
The feeling is. I emphasize feeling, it is if I ask ... you get clear answer to your problem. On the other hand if you propose an idea ....... you go into deep water, as it is considered that this criticism or disapproval of what was done and I'm giving you problems and not solutions.

Without seeming rude, work on that?
It is only exchange of views and ideas.

I use Goggle translator to communicate. Just out of curiosity I wrote
the meaning of "I just thought "....... and ..... "You ask us to code" is completely different

" you well know I am not good at informatics.."
Neither do I. Neither the thousands of players who enjoy this game around the world.
I think it's a good option
We must have accurate information to incorporate the search. On the other hand is not to improve existing addons. It's another way to which the normal user unknown.
I regret the extent of this post and I apologize for this.

If nobody does the work, any number of ideas won't change anything. And I mostly point out the areas where, as far as I know, nobody is currently working on anything.

" If nobody does the work "
which one ?
Precisely that is the point. Nobody work on something that is not required or has been raised, that would be useful . It would be like to work on anything or nothing.
The idea of ​​someone who wanted to play on mac or linux, mac mapping , to name a few in his time as a response received a NO, today is a running and otherwise quite good.
Comes to mind me, the chicken or the egg. Which came first ?.

" any number of ideas "
Not any amount of ideas, we are dealing with a particularly well defined. Addons.

" won't change anything "
I'm sure changes everything.
Warzone 2100 is the example.
Ideas, concerns and problem-solving, added to the hard work of people who devote time and skills have Warzone 2100 to what is now.

" And I mostly point out the areas where, as far as I know, nobody is currently working on anything. "
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=5726#p60574.

Precisely this is a good idea to to search for maps, type, number of players, and so on.
I dare to indicate that has been worked on that, can easily find the type of map you want.
I think this is all about.
But from there to be implemented and all the work required for this is something else.

Search Engine Addons is only comments and discuss current options for improvement. No work to do.

I think the best way to implement Addons will be much easier to adapt the game to other operating systems. Did not say do it, just would be easier done.

Just for the record

topo1948 :)

I like your strong argument here, argument because you strongly argue what you feel !

I also like your arguments, arguments because you have made few really nicely settled arguments or shall I say points here !

Well prepared, something lika a lawyer thing :)

It's a nice rant, indeed mero, but he's missing the point. There are no people available to do the work. We can complain until our faces turn blue, but the only result will be a lack of oxygen in our bodies.
This is why some features aren't implemented: http://forums.wz2100.net/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=7490&view=unread#p87241

Hi effigy !!

You are not on IRC now !! not good, why are you hiding ?? :)
It's a nice rant, indeed mero, but he's missing the point. There are no people available to do the work. We can complain until our faces turn blue, but the only result will be a lack of oxygen in our bodies.
Well maybe not necessarily missing but, I am also aware of the fact that many of us do really a lot, and sacrifice really a lot to our beloved Warzone.. and I am also aware that we could have more people to help.. but sleep well, I will cover mapmaking field :P with my 7 maps per week as some dare to laugh at me :P you can sleep well on that topic :P

Can I be banned for spamming with making maps ?? :hmm:

Ah and effigy nice mirror reflection for a moment I thought, what the hell, he has two different fields of mastering ??

And then.. my eyes went squint :P

Note that I didn't write that, but put an "if" in front of that. I wasn't addressing anyone who doesn't want to work on it.
