Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

I retracted my box in the review queue, made some edits and re-submitted my box. I did playtest it but I never completed my box after I made the edits.
Interesting, the playtest bit should get reset after edits... I'll have to check the code XD

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

Could the "reveal tool" be added to a players inventory when they play a box they've built and something like a "signal tool" that outputs a mech signal when hit against a node. This would make play testing mech boxes a lot nicer and easier to identify the problem with mechs if a problem does occur...

Re: [Mod] crops [crops] - (Farming|Food|Cooking)

Lol. Well, Thanks for the vote of good confidence. I've written code to do weather things and ambience as well, see the lightning mod and ITB has some code as well. While I wish I had time to make more mods - I just don't have the time right now to dedicate it to any large project.

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

- If a player often leaves a box before or after completing it, does it changes the box/builder/player rank ? It does not. Indirectly, it affects total number of players completing the box (since, it will be lower) and therefore boxes that are not getting completed will rank lower than boxes that a...

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

Players shouldn't need to use a notepad, screenshot tool, or calculator throughout the entire box I disagree. Puzzles that are so hard that you need to take notes are fun. The real problem is boxes where you just have to search for randomly hidden stuff. There's an audience for both types of puzzle...

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

TL;DR: Imgur don't want you to use their service to host the images for your website. GitHub on the other hand specifically offer a service (GitHub Pages, which you're already using) that lets you host a small website in relation to your open-source projects. You are seriously risking losing all th...

Not going to. There's no value in hosting these myself. It would only increase time/cost.

Courts have upheld the right to reverse engineer for decades. This is a misconception. You're skipping over a huge amount of legal reasoning here and drawing a conclusion that is not correct. Courts have upheld "Fair Use". For instance, courts have upheld that it is legal to, for educational purpos...

Re: [Server] Inside The Box [Puzzles]

These are a great start! The clock and magnifying glass are almost good to go already. I think the jumping guy needs to have a little platform that he jumps off or jumps to. I think the "easy" and "hard" icons are good, but I need to think about those a bit more. What's the eye one for?
