Re: Friday Facts #330 - Main menu and File Share Shenanigans

ZFS is fantastic! As someone working a few years with T5 servers with ZFS I have to disagree. It was OK unless more than 50% disk usage, otherwise it was getting painfully slow. Now we switched to x86 with a different FS and evweything works fine even at 99% of used space. I don't even know which F...

Re: Friday Facts #330 - Main menu and File Share Shenanigans

ZFS is fantastic! If all you need is a simple ZFS RAID for a network drive or so, then get a lot of drives and go. However, if you want even higher throughput and better reliability then an object store system (like ceph mentioned prior, which does use zfs underneath as I recall) is absolutely unbea...

Re: Friday Facts #329 - Campaign reassessment

This is the main prototype that we have been working on so far. A single map which starts small but grows after each objective is complete. This would emulate Freeplay gameplay in that the player can build very large bases and expand in the directions they want, but with quest objectives to steer t...

Re: Friday Facts #324 - Sound design, Animated trees, Optimizations

If you keeps your eyes centered, then you can see the wave effect going on and almost predict where its going to be next. That's generally what I see in real life. Like a pecan tree field nearby, I live in an extremely flat area, so the wind quite literally makes rippling waves across the whole fie...

Re: Friday Facts #324 - Sound design, Animated trees, Optimizations

I quite want it on, but perhaps instead of a toggle you could add a slider for 'intensity' of the effect (a simple 0-N bias scale, where 0 is off (can just not run that shader then, fallback to the normal texture shader) and non-0 is a scale, can even turn it above 1.0 for a 'larger' effect (likely...

Re: Friday Facts #324 - Sound design, Animated trees, Optimizations

The tree animation made my eyes water. Will there be a way to switch it off in game if I find it too distracting? Yes, there is a toggle in the graphics settings. Though it pains my heart a little to see people jumping to turn it off - I hope you'll give it a chance at least :) I quite want it on, ...

Re: [MOD 0.17+] Industrial Revolution (0.99.x)

2. Take the fuel value off wooden beams. Raw wood is only used in two recipes: making wooden beams, and making big wooden poles. The latter is an Iron Age tech anyway so you've got, or are close to getting, electric inserters by then. It means that once wood is turned into a beam, it's somehow immu...

Re: Friday Facts #309 - Controversial opinions

Something else about bots to add to my prior reply, it was suggested to me that a roboport should only control a limited amount of bots, perhaps in a limited area (only that roboport), which I quite like the idea of to keep their 'limited range throughput' part and lower their overall power.

Re: Friday Facts #302 - The multiplayer megapacket

@Raiguard: Which one? Tapemeasure at least seems to not need them seperate. I don't know - can mods do things when you hover over something? Does the server tell clients what you click on, or just that you click? Currently "pressed a button" and "selected something" are different events. If i.e. my...

NULL checks are critical and should be absolutely everywhere. And result in instant failure of the application, with full debugging trace.

Re: Friday Facts #273 - Cutscene controller & Localisation plan

Zoom out to a height where both origin and destination are visible and then zooming in again would give a sense of overview, which is great when the player wants to figure out where the camera is moved to. This can be combined with slow movements for scrolling, which will allow the scroll movement ...
