comment Do plugins for Kerbal Space Program work on unix?
IDEs don't compile things. Compilers do. That's what counts.

comment Do plugins for Kerbal Space Program work on unix?
@ToxicFrog Hey. Thanks for the answer! Perhaps to make it most generic, show it as "'KPSINSTALLDIR/GameData/...' (where KSPINSTALLDIR is '~/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Kerbal Space Program' on Steam, or '~' otherwise)"

@IlmariKaronen Is that so? I did not realise any of that, silly me. Thanks!

comment How do I find diamonds?
The technique of blocking or removing source blocks of water to provide easier passage is a good one, but for the idea that the water in some way mined out the tunnel, I'd have to say 'citation needed' - I don't think Minecraft cave generation works this way.

comment How do I find diamonds?
I think @Cyclops' point is a good one, but I guess the advantage of caves is that they expose large surface areas to your view without you having to do any digging, and you have to combine that insight with the knowledge that diamonds only occur <= 16 altitude, and therefore look for caves that go right down near the bedrock. This is obviously hard to predict from the entrance of the cave - you've just go to explore them all.

If you have any other source of food, tripe is worth saving because you can feed it to dogs to make them tame and turn them into a pet. Useful if you lose your pet early on and need a replacement.

comment Can sanctuary and summon monster be abused to altar farm in a co-aligned temple?
"Sanctuary: A co-aligned temple" nethack.wikia.com/wiki/Sanctuary. So the summoned monsters won't even attack you in this case. Until you start attacking them, presumably?

comment Do specific items have the same effect as other similar items?
Ha. I love the gag of calling each game an 'ascension run'. I've been playing for decades and haven't come within a million miles of ascending.

comment What's the secret of the boiler/technician room in the beginning village?
@Sean: Thanks. I just discovered the QR code in the game that scans to read 'RT LT... etc' and through trial and error I discovered this translates into rotate right and left. Makes more sense to me now. Thanks!
