thanks stant, yes you are a condescending of a . I've been out of the loop, not down for a coma. When I ask if the frakking Mod works for specific versions, since your don't speak for the team -don't be an ass or people will figure out just why you aren't, just give a yes/no. If you are part of the team, don't make them look like asshats by association. I asked because in my prior experience with the 7DeadlySins mod, any changes StarClad made or information withheld could have dire consequences.
I figured it was a matter of copy/paste, but I'd rather ask than frak something up beyond recognition. Regarding Bases... sure, more the merrier I say. Yes, I loved making the vasari/advent militias, making the 7 Deadly Sins GSDef file for mapping kick ass maps, and love the work Distant Stars has done.
Check "Template:DefaultStart_Grave", "groups 19" there is a lot on the same line that seems out of place.
"Template:StrongHold1" and "Template:StrongHold2"; is it possible to vary the "Fleet" so you don't always have the same forces arrayed or are they like pirates in that you really can't do that? All I notice is that all urban worlds have massive forces without any real difference.
All aside, I like the mod.
It's cute how you use made up words and icons. I'm going to offer you and the world a glimpse into my mind as scary as that sounds. Here's why you got the answer you got.
While I was reading your first comment, I was formulating an answer in my head as I went. You know, you started off asking for the versions, and I was prepared to give you, and actually did give you the simple yes/no answers with a very small explanation to the no answer, however, as you continued to type, you made yourself out to be a total fucking idiot, and I had no reason to not treat you as such. Hey, maybe that's not what you intended, but seriously, go back and read it. I'll help break it down for you. This is in no way meant to piss you off, only explain why, but if it does, whatever, I'm addicted to hate. Ask these guys, spew some venom and watch me enjoy it and return some more. =Þ
Asking what versions is this for tells me that you didn't bother reading the top. Okay, I get that. It's dumb, but I get it. Not everyone looks and reads large blobs of text, and I was in the mindset I was dealing with someone who had no clue how these things work... It clearly states what versions it works for. Okay, you're just lazy, no big deal right? THEN you go and mention not even knowing what to do with the patch. Well, that shifts my mindset from you not being as lazy as you were originally making yourself out to be which means you're just stupid if you read it but didn't know what you just read. It's not wrote in hieroglyphics so really you have no excuse... I mean seriously, you type English well enough, you can formulate decent sentences, comparing numbers is a piece of cake by comparison. Then you go and further cement this ideal about you by asking about if there's full downloads... Using their instead of there while asking tells me that your brain has switched part of itself off or that you just haven't learned the proper usage of words yet. Regarding the entrenchment patch comment... At this point, I know you're completely useless because you've not only demonstrated that you did read, but you read the right section and looked at the patch and still somehow, honestly, I'm not even going to try and figure it out how, but somehow you managed to not see the words FULL DOWNLOAD in red... I do believe I explained it as well and as concise as anyone could have explained it... Honestly, I think the highlighted text explains the patch well enough, to borrow a phrase from another company, "It's so easy, even a caveman can do it." I'm really thinking now, okay, you got a disability, I get it, you don't need to keep going on with the easy answerable questions...
Even still at this point, I was still in the mindset to be pretty nice about it because I'm not a mean guy to retarded people, I'm just not. Life has already played a cruel joke on them, and I give them a free pass because of it. I'm an asshole, but only to people who deserve it. Yes you deserved it, here's why.
You go on to say that you've been out of gaming for a while, but the mod looks nice and you at least created content for another mod. At this point, I had to step back from the post and look at it differently. I was convinced you were an idiot, you really left me no choice but to believe that, and I was sold. You got me! Yes you did, you got me. Well done. I don't get taken advantage of too often, but you had me. If you had stopped your post before that comment, I would have been so nice and accommodating, and I would have fucked with anybody who made any type of negative comment about you, because you got me. I help those who can't help themselves, and wow... What the fuck... I got had. You are my newest favorite person. I mean that. I'm a little pissed off, because I got had, but what whatever. I still like you.
But back to that comment, out of gaming for a while, what ever, no big deal. I pop in and out of gaming circles, so I know the feeling. You say the mod looks nice, that tells me you either did get a working copy and played it a bit, you did your research on the project and you liked what you were seeing, or you were just talking out of your ass. I mean, what? How do you know what it looks like... I thought you were a mentally challenged person who didn't even know how to understand what they're reading or know what version it worked on or how to patch or what links to download... So I have to assume you're just talking out your ass because there's no way you know what the fuck you're talking about. It's just not possible. However, you continued the thought with informing me that you created content for Seven Deadly Sins. Now you're just full of shit. There's no way those guys would take your work. Don't come here bragging about something that's just not possible. We're not idiots, there's no way we can believe you're a modder if you're asking such questions that make you out to be short on brain power. It's asinine of you to think that anyone would believe you. However, I do accept the fact that one who would be so bold as to say they've created content for a mod to another group of modders who can easily verify the claims if they choose to, actually has in fact done what they've claimed. I know they're not total fucking idiots over there, so to accept your work means you're a competent thinker and playing me the way you have just played me isn't very nice. At this point I'm a little mad at you, I like you, but I'm mad at you. You got me to pity you when you didn't deserve it.
Now you offer up that the mod need more bases, throw out the customary compliment, and toss out why you're here... Frankly, I'm insulted by this. You've given me plenty of reasons to doubt that you're even capable of knowing what this mod needs let alone how even a light switch works, but given the fact that you've made the claim that you're a mod contributor and have worked on the galaxyscenariodef file, and that I'm willing to accept that comment at face value, tells me that you are indeed more then capable of reading and understanding what's there at the top of the page, you've looked the post over, downloaded a copy of it or at the very least done some research further back in the thread and found out the same information I presented, and dissected it to some degree to offer up some advice on what should be added, and then plan on contributing something in the future possibly. Honestly, the first response I typed out was a simple "Why don't you just go fuck yourself." but I changed it to at least be helpful to someone else reading it who might have a legitimate reason for asking the questions since they are in fact lazy and didn't read the top post or mentally retarded and cannot understand things as well as you or I, while still being an asshole to you... I'm just a nice guy like that. Then I added my disclaimer for my amusement and for the amusement of others that know me.
So there you have it. That's why you got the asshole-ish response. I feel the need to add the ish to the end of that because let's be honest, I can and have done a hell of a lot worse. (That comment right there should get a laugh out of some people. They know who they are.)
Now then, because I'm in the mood of discussing my thought processes, allow me the opportunity to continue.
thanks stant, yes you are a condescending of a . I've been out of the loop, not down for a coma. When I ask if the frakking Mod works for specific versions, since your don't speak for the team -don't be an ass or people will figure out just why you aren't,
Um... What? Just so you know, I have this personal philosophy that you should probably get to know someone before trying to help them out with life advice. It's served me really well. Take what you want from it. I don't know you well enough to be telling you to follow it, so you know, the choice is yours. Also, I'm not a team member of this mod or any other mod because it is my choice not to be one, not because I'm not ever asked. Like Ryat said, I'm actually very knowledgeable, and to expand upon that, I do contribute a lot in multiple fashions, not only to this mod, but other mods and other games as well. Again, me not being a team member for any mods is the choice I make, my personal attitude is a reflection of that choice, not the other way around, because if you ask those that interact with me all of the time, they'll tell you that yes, I can be an asshole at times, but not one of them will tell you they want me to be a different person. I've been modding games for over 13 years, yet I've not been credited as a team member on a single project because I've always refused. Games are a hobby to me, nothing more. I don't need to be given credit for me making a hobby more fun for myself. If others get the benefit of enjoying it more as well, so be it. Some people like having their names on things, others do it as a resume builder, and there's not one thing wrong with that. If I was an aspiring programmer, I'm pretty sure I'd want my name on as many projects as I could get involved with. I have received credit as a contributor before, but that was only because those on the team felt like acknowledging my efforts without telling me they were doing so, otherwise I would have stopped it. Also, not being a team member means I can say and do things they'd like to say and do to people but can't because they are team members, so in that sense, I can provide an extra service that gives a team deniability. I know, pretty sweet right? I get to do what they wish they could have done and then they can just say, he's not with us, he can go fuck himself and it's all good. Not that it's happening here, because it's not, this one's all me.
I did. =] Although I did briefly explain that it's possible to turn the no into a yes.
If you are part of the team, don't make them look like asshats by association. I asked because in my prior experience with the 7DeadlySins mod,
Hence my repeated disclaimer that these opinions are mine and mine alone and not of the team and should not be taken as a reflection of their thoughts and/or opinions. Everybody understand that? Okay. =] As for your prior experience with 7DS, what am I supposed to be thinking about them at this point since you keep claiming to have worked on that? I know what the mod is and have used it and enjoyed it, but I'm really starting to think that you didn't... Seriously, if you're so challenged that you can't compare numbers and you gave them stuff and they used it, then that would mean they're really stupid and I really don't think that about them. I like their work.
any changes StarClad made or information withheld could have dire consequences.
Yeah, but that's why mods are always considered beta and are always being tested. Even the word final doesn't mean it's out of Beta, it just means they're no longer working on it for whatever reasons they give. I like how you combined the two companies there. Not as funny as the guy who said he was getting entrenchoplomacy so he could play with all of the goodies, but good effort anyway. You got an audible "Ha." out of me for that one.
I figured it was a matter of copy/paste, but I'd rather ask than frak something up beyond recognition.
Except for the fact that you didn't even ask that question. Had you just posted, hey guys I've been out of the game a while, do I just copy and paste or what? We wouldn't be here right now, you would have been linked to FAQ #7 and the not as funny as it could have been comic and I would have been on my merry way... In fact, I'm the one who came up with the idea to include the install instructions in the answer because you'd probably be needing them since you asked the questions you did even though you pissed me off, so really, I figured out what you were really wanting to know even though you didn't even ask for it. Come on people, you gotta tip a glass for me on that one. See, I'm actually pretty good at what I do, I get the results even if the methods are a little off.
Regarding Bases... sure, more the merrier I say. Yes, I loved making the vasari/advent militias, making the 7 Deadly Sins GSDef file for mapping kick ass maps, and love the work Distant Stars has done.
Bases can only come in so many combinations before they become pointless additions. While the thought is nice to have 90 types or more, the reality is, if no one is going to use 70 of those combinations, why include them? You're wasting valuable space and time that can be better spent on other things. From a player's standpoint yes, it's great to have as many choices as you can get, from a modder/programmer standpoint, you have to draw the line somewhere. So which standpoint do we want to look at this from? 7DS again... Nah, I'm claiming bullshit. You didn't work on the project. You've given me far too many reasons to doubt it. If you did you would have known about lazy people asking dumb questions and taken the time to figure it out or just ask the specific question you wanted to know rather then a bunch of dumb ones, and you would have known the process to go through to add a mod, even if you've been out for a couple years or more and didn't know the location changes, a quick read of the top post would have given you more then enough information to get yourself a copy of the mod and you would have known there's always a read me included on how to get it up and running if you can't find the install instructions on the forum the mod is posted on, which this one is... You're a good bullshitter. I like you a lot, but I can't take you at your word. There's just too much not right about the things you say.
The rest of it, Ryat answered, so I'm not going to bother.
So there it is. I got a lot of good laughs out of this, and you can all walk away now knowing that you're better people because you don't think like me. =]
