I'm actually against using zones as physical objects, heh. But it should be fairly straightforward, after we have moving zones, to create an object system, where you could then have bullets and balls and stuff. I'm thinking that's the way to go for CTF, too.

I'm imagining a fancy system where even your light cycle is such a physical object, just one that players can control, and then a whole bunch of tl;dr stuff I'm not going to write here. Instead, just copy and paste the zone stuff, rename everything, make it make sense for objects, and we can worry about a less hackish proper and full implementation some other century.

I think part of the problem with tron is that people like putting things off, and things never get done. I'm not blaming specific people, I think we all do it.

I get what you're saying. However, in this context, this is me saying "Give us the code" rather than "Make sure it meets our standards of purity", meaning it'll get into the codebase quicker.

So it's not putting things off, it's getting shit done faster. And we'll deal with the lack of purity later.

Within limits, as usual, of course.

Applied both patches, thanks. Nelg: Any wish on how you want to be credited in AUTHORS?
