Hmm, well I'd kinda like to leave the homepage as it is and I think the tab/menu items are dependent upon text size, if I wanted to cram more items/pages into the top tabs I'd have to make the text size really tiny. I know what you mean by when the page is loading and the top menu isn't completely filled yet, annoys me too lol.
The way the forum and site are right now is probably how they will be for the foreseeable future. Don't hesitate to continue to add your input though, I appreciate it. I'm kinda just in maintenance mode right now for the forum and site, build mode has pretty much been put on hold. Between working a physical job 10+ hours a day, 11 month old son and a pregnant wife there's not much SW energy left in the tank, even my poor ol' dog is feeling left out haha.
I kinda wish this place had more active users so I could take a step back from things, I worry that if I do that though, that the tiny community that is here would disperse, SW is an awesome game and it needs to thrive! Then again I've pretty much been saying that for 20 years. When!? When does the thriving start, lol.
alright, and I know what you mean by taking a step back from things. I do it now and then these days. Right now I'm determining (via forum post at RTCM) if i should keep pumping time and energy into RTCM right now or go do other projects more so.
I don't think the game will thrive again, it will get used though by stragglers.
Ninjakitty: You can see the floor of the top level from the other level, and you can see the ceiling of the bottom level from the other level. The thing is that if you do that, you cannot see the top level from the bottom level in the sector in which you can see the

Ninjakitty: floor of the top level

Ninjakitty: And vice versa

Ninjakitty: So in other words, it only works if you're keeping the player on one level, glitches will be noticable if they can go between both of them

Robman: and thus the essence of swbuild. You can do it...but there's almost always a catch.

Ninjakitty: Oddly sector objects on one sector over/under another sector will drag sprites from the other sector

Ninjakitty: It's not even inside of the sector object's lines vertically

Ninjakitty: Sector objects are officially weird as hecc

Ninjakitty: Ok so any sprites in the bounding box defined by the bounding sprites will be carried along, even if they're in a different sector entirely. Also if you use a wait for event track, the object will actually go PAST that track sprite tothe next one THEN wait

Ninjakitty: There's something special about all of the official Shadow Warrior maps. Like, they just work. The theme, the layout, everything. Some masterminds knew exactly what they were doing, and I can't quite replicate it.

Ninjakitty: They're honestly creative as hell, very imaginative but they still feel somewhat grounded in a really cool reality.
Jul 28, 2020 15:02:23 GMT -5
Ninjakitty: Haven't seen any fan-made maps replicate this either

Ninjakitty: I should make it so that if you kill all of the crabs Zilla himself will spawn in the map and try to kill you

Robman: The official maps were indeed special
