Re: Mac's new OS update will not support openGL

"And this shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Apple has only barely supported OpenGL of late, and Metal is clearly its priority. The company told developers at the conference that "existing and soon-to-be launched apps can still use it" and "this will remain so for some time," but nevertheless t...

Re: v1042 discussion

as true as that may be, if for some miraculous reason any form of CL ends up making money and DeltaTao doesn't get some of that action, I am willing to bet that e-mail will come right quick. Even without them profiting. If you don't defend your intellectual property rights, you lose them. Always fu...

Re: a more ecological washing machine

Fixed for you: What is going on here. is this how Germans live I think the Germans and Other Europeans as you describe read the fucking manual first :D The shortest mode on the Siemens washer was still around 2-2.5 hrs. No manual required my son; it says the time determination when each mode is sel...

Re: Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire (1999)

I guess so. It's been way too long since I played. All I remember is nerve stapling and that annoying sound of the alien fungus attacking.

Re: Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire (1999)

Alien Crossfire has terraforming that can raise and lower land.

Pretty cheap at https://www.gog.com/game/sid_meiers_alpha_centauri

Windows box probably best.

Re: Clanlord 1 and Clanlord 2.

I think making a new game with the intent of profit is not a bad thing. But I don't think it was clear to everyone in the discussion what the assumptions were. Further, I'm not even sure that Joe owns all the art. I don't know what the agreement was when people provided community art.

Re: Clanlord 1 and Clanlord 2.

Ok, so this project only works if Joe gives the artwork away for free. Got it.

Re: Clanlord 1 and Clanlord 2.

I wouldn't be so sure. There have been plenty of successful indie games in recent years that I wouldn't exactly consider to be state of the art. Making an MMO is a lot riskier than other genres but not entirely out of the question. See Realm of the Mad God , Aberoth , or Wurm Unlimited for a few ex...

Re: Clanlord 1 and Clanlord 2.

You could increase the CL aesthetic 10 times and still be 10 times behind the times. You're not competing against the CL standard, you're trying to make a new game and compete with state of the art. If you're going to make something new, I would suggest not shooting for an improved CL. That bar is t...

Re: v1042 discussion

Thank you, Pengy.

Having taken a swing at the area editor, I'm (almost) struck speechless at the herculean amount of <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordian_Knot> work you've contributed.

Thank you.

Re: v1042 discussion

People have been saying that CL is dying since beta.

Imaginary games are great. But ideas tend to be much more satisfying than implementations.

Re: v1042 discussion

There's plenty of reason to speculate. It might help the CL2 people refine their ideas. It might help Joe form his comments.

It definitely lets people blow off steam until something happens.

If you don't know what "soon" means by now, you really should have moved on years ago.

Re: Clanlord 1 and Clanlord 2.

I'd play if it started exactly the same as it is now. It won't and couldn't. The people that developed CL2 would HAVE to put their mark on it, "fix" it. I don't know what thinking makes the GMs think CL is done. Maybe they're done with it. Maybe nothing can be done with it. I play several games from...
