Re: Queue buildings from the Objects menu

I posted that PR in order to start a discussion if such things are interesting others. I know the tendency to try to avoid micromanagement, but colony looks like an exception to the rule...

Any thoughts ?

Re: proposal: homesystems have at least 2 starlanes

If you were trying to be humorous in a very silly way, I'm afraid I think it fell short. A bit of both, I'm afraid. What I really was willing to express is that you have choice of galaxy shapes, elliptic is boring-everyone-in-the-same-place, spiral can lead to more interesting starting conditions, ...

if you dont like pointy ends, why not choose elliptic?

Re: Object list window values computing

It's just caching the column names, and yeah, chasing it a little further that does seem to be it. The reason why seems to be that each column actually represents a ValueRef, and there is a mapping process between those ValueRefs and the headers, and m_column_val_cache cache's the results of that l...

Object list window values computing

It looks like we are recomputing objlistwnd's column values even if we already have done it. I'm adding "suitability" to multiple columns, and each time it takes longer than the previous. By having a slight look, I've got the assumption that there's some cache (m_column_val_cache) that should avoid ...

Sorry if my message seemed too harsh, that was not intended. I have a lot of WIP patches and not enough spare time to get them to mergeable state. That's what you get with a new job...

Re: [Request] Save position of windows

I've got that started, but the team needs less devs and more reviewers... ;-)

This is my first github pull request, please check it out and tell me if anything is wrong with it.

Re: What unlocks planet access?

They make the game pause for a long time when displaying that info in a objectlistwnd's column... That's my biggest concern, lag is already problematic at times, however. Does it only create the lag if you select that info as a column to display? That would, possibly, be acceptable as long as we co...

make "view active topics" more useful

I want to ask if it's possible to include *all* sub-forums in the "view active topics", as currently the development ones seems forgotten (or intentionally left out) of this useful view.

Re: What unlocks planet access?

one of the more advanced Devs might want to give an opinion as to whether it's even possible. It is possible, I've got it working with a few patches here (as I've said for some times), but I've still not posted them for review, they are the next ones on my list, but I'm not sure they will be accept...

Re: Early exobots in suitability report

Or is it an only-the-best display, so you'd be concerned about hiding the suitability of a currently available species? In that case then probably the trigger should be once they've made any progress on the exobot tech itself. Yes I only display the best one like that : "9.0 (Abaddoni)". And at gam...

[BUG] Building blocked text missing an UserString()

TSIA

A colony building, blocked by an habitability condition is showing as "...that is not a uninhabitable planet for the species SP_ABADDONI"

I hope the fix is at the right place...
