THose pics are cool. Amazing what you can achieve with the "printscreen" command

I know this is a little off topic and all, but don't those pictures (aspecially of the Shivan freighters) show that you've finally cracked multi-ship docking?

Yes,. the reason Goober hates us is because we made him rip out an entire section of code and rewrite the whole lot, over 6 months work if I recall correctly, so he's being incredibly modest about what he's done.

Let's hear it for Goob! :D

Can't add a highlight right now because the system's being buggy, but awesome. I was wondering how long you could wait to let the cat out of the bag. ;)

Well, I have to be a little immodest and let them know how much work it was, or people will think it was a piece of cake and ask me to do geomod as well! ;)

The six months were how long I was turning it over in my mind before I actually started coding it.  I drew some code flowcharts, but that was about it.  The two weeks were when the real work happened.

Actually, if you want modest, I direct you to taylor.  He just committed most of the Linux codebase into CVS, which amounted to over 30,000 lines of code written or changed over the course of a couple years. :eek2: And he hasn't done any self-advertising, unlike the rest of the SCP team.  So let's hear it for taylor as well. :yes:

Yeah. Took him less than a week to merge it all into CVS too, without breaking anything significant. :)

Well, now I can ask the question that's been churning in my mind ever since I stumbed onto those screenshots in that zip entitled "something".  Will 3.6.6 have a build of FRED that has full support for the simultaneous docking?  What I mean is, FRED will only allow you to have 2 things connected together as part of those objects' initial status.  What is realy needed to make full potential of this, is to either add a popup menu that allows say, 4 or 5 additional entries, or move all the docking controls in the object editor to a popup menu.  The inclusion of that kind of support will mean that there will be a limit to the number of objects that can be simultaneously docked to the object, as part of initial status.  Its just limited to how many you can display. Of course, that number is not limited if you include additional dockings in-mission via AI orders.  So, will that be done?

Damn, recently os many things that were stated "not gonna happen" have happend. I'm actualy begining to think that someday we might see geo-mod.

(i'm not asking any of the coders to implement, nor do i even anticipate geomod. But if it comes, let's just say I wont be that suprised)
