How exactly it doesn't work?
You probably need to manually enter server address to connect.

Re: [Game] Repixture [1.1.2]

I think that MTG screwdriver is very inconvenient. What about of 3 tools. Each one will rotate in its own dimension. Regarding trade book. I think it is unique feature. Lets keep it. I don't see any reason to trade anyway. I could trade more in case of narrow specialisation. For example: I usually m...

Re: [Game] Repixture [1.1.2]

Lumien is a infinite torch, which light up when player approaches. I realised that after I tried to use/place it. Maybe it is good idea to place lumien fragments in caves. It would be great to increase light radius and to decrease size of placed fragment. I don't think that guidebook is good idea. I...

Re: [DEV] The horrifying "rebase needed"

If you need local backup, you can make backup branch and rebase develop branch. Backup branch will keep unrebased commits. Your remote branch will also keep unrebased work. There are enough means to protect yourself from mistakes. Though I agree that rewriting history regularly is bad workflow. Keep...

Re: [DEV] The horrifying "rebase needed"

It is common problem in projects with multiple developers. When amount of new PRs greater than 1, then second PR might become obsolete. There are two ways to make second PR up-to-date: rebase or "merge master in develop". Merging master to develop produces a lot of meaningless merge-commits. So reba...

Re: Strip the default status from MTG

Look to the battle for wesnoth as good example of merging mods to mainline. They had only a single game in base package at the beginning. Mods which were stable enough eventually became "mainline". Now there a dozen of mainline campaigns. They release their game approx every year. With even-stable a...

Re: Strip the default status from MTG

Re: Strip the default status from MTG

Re: Strip the default status from MTG

So, instead of pushing Repixture as new game bundled with MT 5.1.0 by default, Wuzzy decided to stay outlaw and keep ranting MTG. I don't think that forum threads could change anything. I also think that there should be some default game bundled with MT as long as main menu does not offer simple cho...

Re: [Game] Repixture [0.6.0]

I think it is too easy to complete the game. By "completion" I assume achieving all achievements. Hardest goal is to craft full set of bronze armor, but it is doable in the first few hours. Digging around -100 I found a lot of copper, but very few tin. Should I dig deeper to get more tin? I suspect ...

Re: Content database for in-menu installer - add your things

You know, it is possible to add version to the game name. So if author of Cool Game 0.0.1 will abandon development, then his authorship could be preserved. Anyone else could be able to make Cool Game 0.0.2. More than that, with defined version it will be possible to keep mods consistent while they d...

Re: MTG: Desert mining just got even worse

I think it is possible to travel few minutes to reach some non-desert biome.
In addition to dirt and stone, you will be able to find there water, trees and probably food.
I see no problem in making desert biome harder. It gives you reasons to travel
