  1. Thanking yourself? Is self-notifying the forum version of setting a reminder?
  2. I remember someone saying that it turned out to be a good decision that JavaScript was chosen due to how browsers have spurred many JS performance improvements. That was years ago though, and I couldn't find the post. There is a little here in this thread, but for the actual details, I've asked elexis to check the relevant meetings if possible. https://wildfiregames.com/forum/index.php?/topic/12716-scripting/&tab=comments#comment-202793
  3. That's really interesting. Thanks for the explanation.
  4. Well, that means that we can potentially add some of that. If we already had all of those, then there wouldn't be as much room for improvement. Multithreading and LoD are some things that we have wanted for awhile. Do we not already have instancing? I assumed that common static models like trees and structures are instanced, right...? Yeah, originally the scripting language was going to be Python, but JavaScript was chosen instead. JavaScript has gotten a lot of attention and performance improvements over the years, so I don't know that Python would have been any better. We could port some things back to C++ if there is a clear reason to do so.
  5. Did you create more than one account? Only a single account is allowed according to the Terms of Use that you agreed to when you created a lobby account: https://trac.wildfiregames.com/browser/ps/trunk/binaries/data/mods/public/gui/prelobby/common/terms/Terms_of_Use.txt A lobby moderator can confirm if this or other reasons are the cause.
  6. I've never heard "redacting" used that way although it is technically correct. I've only heard it used for limiting information, which made me wonder what we were hiding in the Privacy Policy.
  7. Maybe some areas of grass could be carved out of some spots of forest to allow for different beach transitions and more variety. Perhaps the island could be more irregular to allow for more interesting shoreline shapes like the nice crescent cove in that photo. Some of this could be directly added into the island shape, and some could be implemented in offshore sandbars or other features. Imagine building a tower on a coastal rock. It's up to you. It's a nice map either way. Be careful with the number of trees and the amount of smoke. Back when I had a graphics card installed and I loaded the current gray volcano map, I could directly control the fan speed by just moving the camera on and off of the smoke particles.
  8. I like it. Might require a few minor changes, but I hope it can get added in the base game.
  9. Probably will be handled by the property owners which I think is the French government? The Catholic Church has full permission to manage Notre Dame, so I'm sure they will have some involvement in the process. I don't think fund coordination will be any worse than any other government restoration project (natural disasters, etc.)
  10. Perhaps regrowth would only occur in certain areas. There could be a vineyard structure that could be claimed and would generate berry bushes periodically.
  11. That's sort of like contributing some amount and having the government match it by 900%. A little odd, but could potentially be useful. Still, seems a little early to be asking for tax breaks.
  12. I agree. And, yes, I actually have noticed rubble size mismatches (and destruction textures, etc.) Every attention to detail and completeness adds value. Even little bits of polishing contribute to the overall shininess. @stanislas69 your work is appreciated by many.
  13. Well, I think the main concern was about the integrity of the stone portions of the structure. The combined interactions of the heat from the fire and the cooling from the water could have caused the stone to become brittle and collapse. Even now, they aren't fully sure what condition the stone is in and whether it is sound. It does appear that they were able to save many of the movable contents, so that is very good.
  14. I like the current effect, but wouldn't mind if it had to be tweaked for balance. However, if it were removed, what alternate effect would the lighthouse offer?
  15. Hey, I'm one of those 50% and my computer is not a toaster. (Although now that I look at it, it is sort of shaped like one...) I'd buy a basic graphics card if I had too, so I personally am not opposed to dropping older hardware. It's just hard to determine where the cutoff should be though.
