Lua is highly underrated!

"This is a question and answer site. Not a "complex question, insightful answer that grows you as a person site." People should be able to ask simple questions with simple answers, that just may so happen to be spoon-fed. A lot of people just want to write code that works. Not be empowered. – Owen Sep 19 '08 at 21:23"

comment Galaxy editor use unit type for trigger?
What i basically want my unit to do is to change ownership then provide mineral production for the player that owns the unit, and also perhaps provide things like defensive buffs to the owning player's units.

I'm designing a map where instead of gathering resources directly, you control beacons which give you resources. Abilities might work, investigating...

comment How can I teach someone not to keyboard turn?
As @ChrisF recommends, Minecraft on Peaceful would be a great choice for re-training her to the mouse-look controls.

@dbemerlin: if the player is at all interested in playing the game in any way more than just to fool around, hotkeys make all the difference in terms of mental energy expended doing context switches.

comment Delete / Un-assign Group numbers to units in Supreme Commander 2
@StrixVaria: actually, Starcraft has the annoying problem of not really benig able to empty your selection, so it's basically impossible to do the first items.

comment Strategies against zerg when playing protoss
I'm surprised you think Zealots get worse with time. They're basically melee roaches, only cheaper and more health plus available earlier. Moreover, they excel versus units like siege tanks (and i guess Thors).

comment Match information in Starcraft 2 via packet capture?
@Vilx: actually in most RTS games, the server only pairs up the players. After that, each computer establishes a connection to all others then they all simulate in lockstep (if it falls out of step, then that's the cause of the famed "desync"). FPS games and the like work differently though (each computer is only responsible for their character and they just receive updates about where the other people are), and MMOs do actually run most of their stuff on the servers.

comment Match information in Starcraft 2 via packet capture?
@Vilx: actually, yeah you could. Since each computer has to maintain a complete simulation of everything going on in the game (including what and where the enemy units are), you could see that).
