Re: gameplay: to hard-code or to not hard-code, that is the question

There would be only one default value, the one from config file; there would be no define and no declaration in code. Any system is acceptable where users can clearly tell that and how a server is modded from vanilla gameplay. This is a hard requirement to make progress from the three systems alrea...

Re: gameplay: to hard-code or to not hard-code, that is the question

Here are my two cents. Config files I agree with what was said before: with the current implementation they are a development hurdle. It is very inconvenient to add new config file settings to the game; they are kind of a workflow killer. However, config files do form an interesting middle ground: T...

Re: Humans are way OP

We didn't promise anything like that, because the gameplay is not as broken as both of you suggest. We have played tournaments and lots of development games since we diverged from the somewhat balanced Tremulous and balance was always fine for an in-development game. I suspect aliens are simply much...

sounds nice to me, go ahead :granger: :thumbup:

This is factually wrong though. It means that the beta release cycle is merely a sub-release of Version 0.1. Don't do this to our maps illwieckz! :frown:

Re: New package format for upcoming 0.51.0 release (bye bye pk3)

I'm happy about the .dpk format, but I dislike your version proposals. I'd stick with a01 – a99 for a lpha releases, b01 – b99 for b eta releases and r01 – r99 for (final) r eleases. Also one can use d01 – d99 for " d elta" releases when in the process of porting maps from Tremulous withou...
