do you people really not know what the type flag in the glow points does? it's exactly what it sounds like it is the glow point's type. type 0 is a 'point' type, 1 is a 'beam' type (unless they are broken). have you never just put a bunch of numbers in and seen what they did? or look at the source. I ****ing hacked SSM tables out of the original FS2 exe with a damned hex editor, you have the source code freely available to you and 'no one knows' ? really?
1. 95% of people out "here" that are modding don't have either the affinity for coding, know a back slash from a forward slash, could care less, or have any idea what to get into or how to even look. The "general populace" is not sage class like some of you guys that reside on the most popular mods and have 3,000+ posts. This is why we can't understand what you're all talking about half the time.
You lost the rest of us because you're on a whole other level.
2. Punching in random numbers is great if you have no other resource, but around here it usually leads to breaking something and having to recreate all your work and try again. It's faster and usually more reliable to ask someone who knows, instead of floundering around in the dark and repeating your work. As the saying goes, "there are no stupid questions, only stupid answers."
Supposedly there are people that know every facet and function of PCS2 and it's ties into SCP. However, even though people requested those who did know collaborate (Request for Documentation Thread) and do a little work each instead of a lot of work individually - no one short of Scooby Doo really stepped up to the plate. Even he didn't know about some parts of PCS2. It took a noob (me) 2 weeks, picking about 12 people's brains over IRC, to get somewhat concrete answers, to do the job... the experts could have handled.
3. If you know about the subject better, get the Dev version of my tut and edit the thing. The vast majority of the work is already done.
4. If all developers want great features to be used instead of seemingly wasted? Then explain their usage fully in layman's terms, the general populace can understand. Don't condemn folks because no one's updated the "user manual" in years.
I'm not going to start some kind of flame, so that's all I'm going to say and leave it there.
