Man you guys are pumping out updates! Sounds and looks really great, I would LOVE for situations where you are running low on ammo and need to forage for weapons/supplies off of enemies or teammates. I don't know if it's what you guys have planned but keeping frontlines supplied and not just blowing clips of ammo on bushes or holding fire until you get better shots would be a big refresher than the constant pray and spray of most modern shooters.

I think it's really great of you guys to have jumped into full on community news after your public annoucement and especially because I know in the other posts, you were kind enough to read/respond to comments. For being such a veteraned dev team it's really nice. Games looking great, can't wait to try it out!

I read an interesting article called "Write Games, Not Engines" and it was really great read. I play around with development and this really rings true. It is much easier to write specific custom elements than to try and make a system accessible so that in the future you can add those elements. I love modders don't get me wrong!, but I tend to find it much easier to develop with specific features in mind because you have the ability to manipulate the source code with ease.

It's always much easier to re-create things, you never have to start from scratch once you've done something once :) I bought Project Zomboid on Desura a few weeks ago, can't wait to see you guys get back on your feet it definitely held a lot of promise!

With that said, reddit/twitter was seemed like a pretty big PR disaster... It seemed like a lot of people were trolling as expected so, but I think that could have been handled a bit better there was a lot of back and forth on twitter until the account was deleted. I think that should have been handled a bit more delicately and not just a volley of insults.

Anyway, best of luck guys, maybe you will catch a break and recover the stolen property.

There were several games exactly like angry birds long before it came out... I have more respect for Notch than the angry bird developers, for me, I'm more interesting in seeing original awesome games like Frozen Synapse and Minecraft than games like angry birds. From a business perspective angry birds made the money but it seems for the most part people are here for the love of making games, not money. Just my two cents.

I think the ammo system is fantastic, you wouldn't want it to drop the type you have selected because what if an ally needs some different type of ammo you have? I think from looking at it for the first time it might seem a bit complicated but in time it will probably just become second nature to drop certain ammo. I think it adds a lot more depth to the game great job guys!

In a single player game I doubt there is any networking code at all, at least it would be pretty useless since sending packets to only 1 machine being the machine it is running on has no purpose.

Lag is network based.
FPS is rendering/computation based.

Yeah I think we are interpreting the article in two different perspectives :) I see what you are saying with the first part, I agree, ALL information including non-privileged should NOT be sent for the client to self-regulate. It was my understanding that the data in question was just extremely large amounts of situation report data that was static and could be seen by anyone.

When they say server should just handle logins, I was thinking they were talking about the Campaign server itself (since from what I know about the game, each battle is instanced separately (so collision/physics would not apply to this server/article and instead to a separate set of servers)

+1 vote   article: Campaign data handling
PierreOfTheFrench Dec 1 2011, 4:40pm replied:

I don't believe this article includes anything secretive, the flow diagram seems to show more situation report based objects (like locations of battlefields/factories).

Since they said it was mostly static, it won't be data manipulation as much as data storage and cache accessing that will need to be updated when information is stale.

"- lagging: to counter this the client should forecast" I don't think network interpolation applies here either, I don't think this type of data needs sub-second response. Unless I missed something too! :)
