The more I look at it, the more convinced I am that the side panels on the blue belts are literally going backwards.

If everything is high res please make it an option. I have been playing for a while and I've fallen in love with the classic low res!

Surely it will be optional, no need to worry. :)

Can hardly wait for the hi res update. My only concern is what specs this update is going to require -- and if my computer will be able to run it. On testing WaiTex, the fps slowed to an unplayable level.. sooo, although super excited, it may not be possible to actually use it :(.

Underground belts look little less "gritty" in high-res version.

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 cost for it isn't skipped.

I played the challenge for a bit but it's too hectic for me. I watched some in spectator mode but my client crashed. I'll check for bugreps and post if needed.

I saw kovarex was in my team, then it crashed within a minute. Not allowed to be the same team as kovarex? :( :( :( :( :(
It was quite surprising because I didn't expect to see the error message without any mod enabled. :lol:

if you have a grammar to generate those script, you can quickly find bugs by randomizing the placement (as long as your grammar only produce valid placements), by covering a map of truckload of element in any combination and just panning trough it

I've gotten the one released today and the basic track laying is working again, but the shift click laying still doesn't work anymore.

The basic laying also has EXTREMELY limited range, so there's no way to lay huge tracts of track, which is supposed to be possible according to the gif that originally showed laying tracks.
