Re: Changing ships at shipyards

There are some great ideas on this thread. In terms of game mechanics, I see two primary advantages to changing ships: 1. Access to new mechanics not available in existing ship classes. For example, I think capital ships (even at the low end) could have different mechanics, such as point-and-click c...

Re: Continuous beam weapons

I'm definitely swayed by the skeptics. And I particularly agree that there is no point in doing them if they don't add something interesting to the game. I'm convinced we should NOT blindly convert all beam weapons to relativistic continuous beams. I agree that if enemies fire 100% accurate, undodge...

Changing ships at shipyards

For 1.8 I'd like Commonwealth dry docks and Corporate shipyards to offer to sell new ships to the player. This would work as follows: 1. The player can choose a new ship and trade in their current ship. The new ships would come with some set of devices (weapons/shields/reactor) appropriate to their ...

Continuous beam weapons

I'd like to add continuous beam weapons (essentially hit-scan weapons) to Part I, but I'm not sure exactly how to go about it. Here are a few ideas and I'd love your feedback: 1. Convert all lancers to continuous beam: Lancers were originally meant to simulate long beams, so this might be a natural ...

Apologies! There was a power outage and the server was down for two hours.

It is up again and running.

Re: Server problems (split from "Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread")

I've made some progress in debugging this, but I'm not done yet. 1. There's still a chance this could be CloudFlare caching problems. The fact that anacreon2 works usually indicates that the direct connection is working better than CloudFlare. But it's also possible that this is a transient issue an...

Re: Server problems (split from "Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread")

I've been debugging this by trial and error, because I can't reproduce it on my end. There are lots of things I don't know, so I'm just adding debug code in various places and waiting to see if they yield any results. Some of my latest findings: 1. I don't know if this is a network/communications pr...

Re: Server problems (split from "Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread")

I wasnt having any issues today until now: ERROR: Cannot send message to address: Anacreon.command. That's a separate bug, which I've also been tracking. I think with this occurrence I have enough info to fix it. Meanwhile, I've restarted the Anacreon module, which fixed the issue. Thanks and sorry.

No Twitch this week

This Thursday (May 11th) I'm giving a talk at Ttech's Computer Science Society club, so I won't be around for Twitch.

But I'll be back online on Thursday May 18th at the regular time.

Re: Anacreon Era III Discussion Thread

It was when I posted that comment, I haven't gotten into the game until now for today, will edit this post to update in a bit. EDIT: The game appears to be taking a long time to load. Even after the interface is loaded, the page is still 'loading' as Firefox has the spinning blue circle. This is no...

Connection issues have been for more than just a day. At the worst times, nearly 1/4 of minute ticks fail to update and lose connection.
Is this still going on? It seems to be working fine for me.

Re: Transcendence Picture thread

Here are images of two dockscreen minigames I made. Neurogue is a non-functional knockoff of Rogue and Lifehack is a working copy of Conway's Game of Life . Both were implemented through the heavy use of lists and structs. Did you know that (append list) creates a new copy of a list so that set@ an...
