Multiplayer: Predict running out of items while placing them

Rather simple thing to do: have the client assume that it won't magically get new items and be able to build more than you have in your pockets.

Re: Scheduled service maintenance - September 22, 7:00 am UTC

So the forum and wiki run on a separate database then? Well, I am mere programmer, not a system admin.

Re: Landfill and Stone Gathering

I think the issue here is that you are trying to fill entire lakes with landfill. The problem isn't the cost, but that you feel the need to do this. Huge lakes is a problem to deal with. The correct solution is ships and ports.

Production Challenge

Since noone else seems to be interested in making the topic, I will. For those who missed it, the production challenge is an official multiplayer scenario where teams compete to be the first to reach an arbitrary production goal. The game is played over several rounds, usually five or ten. Each roun...

Re: Friday facts #154 - Challenge us

This is why I hate property bag typesafety, it's worthless. If a simple typo isn't caught before runtime, the language is useless. They say that for each stage in the type->compile->run->debug chain a bug slips thrught, the cost of finding it increases tenfold. And if you skip the compile step, the ...

Re: Friday Facts #152 - Team production challenge

Only if we can go in and sabotage the other teams (i.e. blow them up :D) Sounds like a great plan. Looks like you can throw grenades at the other teams as they are close enough. Presumably they will use the independent map system they added when they were toying with the idea of a space station end...

Re: Friday Facts #150 - New Terrain Experiments

I feel that the patches should be upgraded to actual alternative tiles. Have some tiles that are dark red.

[0.13.10] Can't abort multiplayer load

A server that I used to play on recently broke so that it instantly desyncs when I connect. That's a different bug. No, the issue is that I can't abort a map load while connecting to a multiplayer game. Since loading can take tens of seconds, if not minutes, they need to be abortable. I might change...

[0.13.10] [kovarex] Can't use menu while waiting for respawn

So I ended up on a server totally overrun with biters. I died the instant I spawned. That's not a bug, just poor server maintenance. However, it was a little tricky to leave the server. Because I was busy being dead, I couldn't use the menu to leave. It's thanks to my quick reflexes that I managed t...
