Regarding your comments directly towards me, I don't understand your comment about my 'anti attitude against lone developers.' I'm not clear precisely what you mean, and apologies if I've misunderstood. I'm certainly not anti or against lone developers and don't think I've ever expressed any such opinion.

Short Rant : Yes, the PR could have been better. And yes from an external point of view, it looked like a rush. Internally though it was a three months agony. Anyway I am responsible for PR so I

The unlogged time in general has always been UnitAI, which has almost always been the slowest JS code, even going back several alphas. I think this time around attack-walk was particularly slow - I'm

Hello all, Okay, I'm struggling a little here - I don't want to come across as argumentative, or belittle anyones efforts in the project - but reading through the replies - I think we're talking

Maybe don't cause distracting drama? Lol

My word count, post count, etc, is so low that I don't think you have noticed yet that I abhor drama?

So you are apparently OK with breaking changes crippling modders. But that's not LOL in my book .

Why would you encourage further marketing of the current anti-modder paradigm by focusing on PR instead? What future does that lead 0 A.D. toward?

Well, we are modding an in-development freeware title. I've been very frustrated in the past about the modding situation, but if that's your current issue then that's not what you lead with in this thread.

Why didn't you say this to begin with, since it's relevant to the thread topic and actually a pertinent observation?

It is not my duty to hold you accountable @mysticjim to your own words but here is a friendly reminder quote.

When you write so many words that you ignore or "dont remember" what you've said.

 

Lone developers working on vanity projects do exist, and I suggested 0AD isn't that project (which it isn't). But when context is taken into consideration and is applied logically, that also suggests that not all lone developers are working purely on vanity projects, which clearly they aren't - and clearly I didn't suggest they were either - nor did I suggest a lone developer working on a vanity project is good or bad. The logic you're applying is akin to announcing that I'm allergic to rabbits, therefore I must be anti or against all furry animals, presumably because you say I do.

And exactly what is wrong with a lone developer working on a vanity project if that's what makes them happy?

Let me know when you want to stop trying to make excuses and start a discussion instead.

Nothing wrong with you working on your lone youtube channel project to make your ego happy. What's wrong in my book is your attitude toward other's projects and so I think that isn't what 0 AD needs from a PR perspective. I suspect its your ego but I am only speculating.

and BTW I gave a view to your 4v4 rumble video posted today.

Please do not ignore like the others. i posted here twice last night. My other post, about the lack of WFG providing a Linux build of A24 for Ubuntu 18.04, is being ignored, for example, in favor of everyone chiming in here.

On linux mint(a.k.a. lightweight ubunto ripoff) everything seems just fine.

Mint is not really lightweight and the whole Cinnamon desktop is their invention and they are built with the Ubuntu repos just like Ubuntu was built on Debian there are always forks in Open Source part of the reason we survive.There is no one way.

Enjoy the Choice :)
