1) When you're hit squarely from behind, why do front components sometimes get destroyed and rear ones don't?
2) Does anybody else suffer from the "asteriod bug" as I call it? Whenever I save a game, shut down the program and then load it up later, all the asteriods are drawn as 90 degree segments, from 9 o'clock to 12 o'clock, like a slice of a pizza cut into four. As soon as I change the zoom slider it redraws them all properly. (My website is down at the moment so I can't post a screenshot but I'll email one to anyone that's interested.)
3) Are any components "stronger" or more/less survivable than others when you're hit, or are they all the same? Is it random what gets destroyed on the side you get hit?
Did you know that you can just upload your graphics to any image hoster and use them on the forum with the (img)*image URL here*(/img) tag? Just replace the parentheses with "[" and "]". I highly recommend sites like www.photobucket.com
I'm not too sure about this but I believe that got to do with the actual number of people frequently visiting the forums. Let's face it: Sean's games, compared to the big-time-cash-productions, are rather unknown so in comparison we are quite a few here. Less people makes less people who start bad things automatically I guess.
I got the sensation on other forums that, after a certain number of -pardon my french- assholes is reached, the guys you actually like to talk to now and then start disappearing. I myself more than once let go on a forum because I just got sick and tired of everyone commenting on absolutely everything I ever write. Kind of increases the 'bad-guy-percentage' even more and so on. Well, I don't know.
Yes, I must admit, popular forums tend to get "that way". There are so many users that it takes loads of attention if you are ever going to become respected! The moderators also seem to get more aggressive as the numbers increase. Believe me, a nice guy that has been "flamed" oh too many times, this place is nice! If you are all nice and pretty about everything on large forums, you get walked all over... and no one cares! And yeah, correction comes at you from every direction. Allot of hypocrisy involved if I do say so myself. I think this place also contains more "gentlemen". Lots of manners and good behaviour (usually *snickers*). It sure makes me want to come back again and again that's for darn sure
My thanks and best regards to all my former submitters.
