Re: Friday Facts #331 - 0.18.0 release & Train pathfinder changes

Initially we planned for the Character GUI to be in the first 0.18 release. However the task was proving quite difficult the way it was written, and when the release date came it was not ready, so we delayed the entire 0.18.0 release (twice). After a tough and thorough review, we decided to discard...

Re: Friday Facts #321 - Countdown

Am I the only one who feel some anger on this 1.0 annoucement? I hope everything is ok.... I think it's how Czech people speak in their native tongue with expressions that translate poorly into English regarding the emotional message.

Re: Friday Facts #316 - Map editor Lua snippets & Non-colliding Biters

The non-colliding path finding of the biters looks way better. That said, it feels like a dirty little hack. There ought to be a better way, a middle way, less hacky. Ideas in my mind on how to "improve" pathfinding: If the planned path is blocked the biter should wait a second before planning a new...

... I don't know about you, but I come from a time when you didn't have the more detailed view when zoomed in to radar-covered areas. I don't really use that feature much. Maybe place some ghosts, or change train schedules, but that's about it. Otherwise, I tend to go to that place myself directly ...

Re: Friday Facts #314 - 0.17 stable

When you are not teleported to the dugneon and have to actually travel there, it keeps the immersion of the game, the world is there to be explored, not just an arcade where you push and play. Can you please make the detailed radar view in the normal game way worse than it is now? We have the map. ...

Re: How to get a job in the games industry?

There's tons of demand for people who are able to program. It's just not very visible and it's often not related to games. The day-to-day work is very similar, though. Being in the game industry can be very stressful and often you don't really work on the nice fun parts. You also often don't work on...

I found an online design tool for robotic arms here: https://robolink-designer.igus.tools/construction

Just click the components on the right panel to add them.

You can also change to the second tab to move the arm.

On Kickstarter there is a project to make relatively inexpensive (~$500) inserter arms and they are available for preorder. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mirobot/mirobot-6-axis-mini-industrial-robot-arm Just look at the videos.

But I think now branching off on the basic oil setup spells the beginning of the end for the game, at least as it was when you started development.
