Code: [Select]
`--this loop is obviously not infinite, however it's still in progressfor counter,value in ipairs(arr) do ReadTopicCarefully(value) --yep, all of them to the last oneend`

You may know this by now, but if you want an infinite loop, use

for i = 0,math.huge do
--blahblahblah
end

However, your method is probably better for what you used it for.

No, infinite you want?

Code: [Select]
`v = truewhile v do -- Derp? Coroutine.yield()end`
But you get that loop with the classic "while GameRunning() do - end", and I'm not sure you can nest them and get the effect.

for i = 0,math.huge do
--blahblahblah
end

Loop that'll force an entity to live forever:
Code: [Select]
`while true do   Live()end`Heh, Aino is faster =-)

As for math.huge, the best use of it I can think of so far is to use it to initialize variable used to store min/max values:
Code: [Select]
`CompareVar = math.huge -- (or '-math.huge' if used with math.max)for x = y , z do   CompareVar = math.min(CompareVar, arr[x])end`
As I progress with webs, a new idea makes me to scratch my skull fiercely.
What if I make a no-tree asteroid populated by Grays?
What if next I draw a huge seedling body on top of it (huge enough to close that roid completely)?
What if I force this whole construction to follow mouse clicks and, if another asteroid is selected, our Grays go out to attack it?
I think it is even possible to make it destroy smaller asteroids by shooting them (like it is done in RoidForge/RingDesigner)
The hardest part of it all would be not technical but challenge providing and storyline-related.
Of course this will be another map, don't want to do these webz forever.
So... How could this abomination be called then? Seednought? Seedcruiser? Roflcopter? Any ideas?

You never get involved in a pig fight. If you do, three things happen: you get dirty, you get tired, and only the pig has fun.

Ah, but for i=0, math.huge is better for things where you have to keep count of how many times the loop has run.

Beta (or what can be called so) is underway. I absolutely don't see any reason why stuff made for the community (and own amusement of course ) should be closed at any stage of its development. So look for a new topic regarding open beta-test in next 24-36 hours if interested.

I want to call a function at regular intervals- every 1 second, or every half-second, etc. Ideally, I'd be able to adjust the interval to less than a second if needed. This interval, once set, does not need to be changed during the game. My computer runs much slower than most, so the time should be based on the system clock vs. "Game Time" in Eufloria so that the time interval is not dependent on the speed of the computer. The result must be whole numbers in ascending sequence. In other words, I need to have a count, but possibly slower or faster than second-intervals. I also need to be able to reset the count back to "1" when reaching a certain number, so that, for example, on reaching 100 it will reset to 1 and count up again.

Does anyone know how I can achieve this?

A simple code:
Code: [Select]
`t = GetGameTime()myInterval = 1if GetGameTime() > t+myInterval then  --do stuff  t = GetGameTime() end`

Thanks, but that's not quite what I was looking for. Never mind, though. I figured it out but ultimately decided to go another route as things were too jerky using clock time.

On another note...

Hello everyone. :>

Hope you are all well and had a comfortable festive season.

A friend recently expressed an interest in learning to script Eufloria levels, so I showed him all the guides and stuff on here.  Hopefully he will get into it.. :>

There you are!

I've been doing java coding, making my own games with LWJGL, the same engine Minecraft uses and I'm currently making an Eufloria inspired game.
And maybe you didn't know(hard do keep track of time) I've made a Leaderboard, Minimap and a new AI(MAI). I don't know if you know about any of them

And: Welcome back Annikk!

Oh and: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/885938-modloader100-volcanoes-10/ is just an example of java knowledge, MC is quite easy to mod though...

Yeah, yeah, should read as '82 hours' actually
Quite a cool metabolism you have here BTW

Hello everyone. :>
Hello and I the first thing I wanted to say to you is: thank you. Your creativity is what led me to this forum, your awesome maps made me wanting to create something cool too.

What's been happening around here lately?
Two new modders happened recently. One is fast and creative, another is slow and heavy-minded

Oh, and I still haven't got OHAI up here yet. I'm not sure where it is, or if I even finished it...

Welcome back! I hope you stick around- your knowledge has been sorely missed by all. Aino just hasn't been the same since you disappeared! I assume you've been spending your creative energies elsewhere, like your music, perhaps? Care to share? How is Fluffy?

(I've been corrected- BattleFluffy!)
