How can I write mods on PC?
« on: November 03, 2013, 08:44:02 AM »
What is this beta version for PC that I am hearing about?

Alex, Rudolf, or... it now seems Sillytuna is on board the team as well... can any of you help with this?

PM Sillytuna or...Rudolf, I think. I seem to remember something about Alex moving on to other (hopefully better) things. Just to throw more confusion around, Sillytuna is also called Alex.

Also, hi!

Hi Pilchard, old friend. :>  Good to see/hear from you again.

I've sent a PM to Sillytuna.  So for the avoidance of doubt, are SillyTuna and Alex (as in developer Alex) one and the same?  Or two seperate people that both happen to be called Alex?

As far as I can remember, they are two separate people who are each called Alex.

Ok. :>

Man I am hungry for the code.  I started porting the 3D engine into Java with the help of my friend James, who is a professional Java developer.  I was supposed to be at his house now, working on it...  but unfortunately the parking brake on my car is stuck on. :<
So it looks like I'm going nowhere.


Most of all, I miss coding AI.  That was such a satisfying project.

I'll have a look at the level files for HD and see if they look anything like the classic ones - I'll have to re-download it, but I'll have that done in a bit.

I've had an email from Alex (SillyTuna) to say that I can have an advance copy shortly, so it looks like I will be modding again soon. :>

Trying to persuade Aino to get back on board too.  We need to have another AI war!

How much modability does the version you get have? The one I got, a lot of months ago, doesn't provide more than the basic map-making functions.

I've no idea what it will provide.  Enough to make maps, I guess. :>


Bring it on, I say... restrictions galore.  I'll still make some nice content for it. :>
By the time the PC port is released, I bet we can have a dozen custom maps waiting for it.  Who knows, if we make really cool stuff maybe it will be included in the vanilla release!
