Is anyone still hanging around in the Chapter Master / Interstellar Army Simulator IRC on suptg?
Got a few cool things to talk about, come join me?
Something you'll hear about soon, or in the IRC.
Last I heard some guys over on bay12 had picked it up, but hadn't posted anything other than "wer'e cleaning code" for months now.
Yeah... I'm not convinced they're actually doing anything other than hyping up for a patreon. But then I'm cynical.
It sure as hell doesn't take this long to "clean" the code up if it's done at the rate they say they're doing it.
Eh. Cleaning code usually means you end up rewriting most of it for the sake or architecture and versatility unless you are on a deadline and have to make do with a hack.
Thing is, from what I've seen Duke didn't even know how to use arrays and did endless if conditions instead for all the tables in the game. Cleaning that up alone would take weeks, even if you are familiar with the code...
But I was always a grumpy coderand not a good one either...
I'll explain in the IRC if you want to drop in. Sat in both #InterstellarArmySimulator and #ChapterMaster
Yeah, I get that, and the codebase is bad, for sure. I am pretty skeptical on the whole though, given their timeline and drip-fed updates.
One last bump before I give up and try again another day.
