Yeah, you know my RPs are just that too - storywriting, and to be honest, I only keep the RP as part of the name to encourage people who are normally not writing stories, to take part in it ^^
Or, well, I dunno. I believe it's RP once you have a personal character and there's a GM to control stuff, right?
It'd be awzum to have you in Kaelicious. I'll surely check that LMS-thing out when I have the time. I'm hella busy these days, but I'll keep it in mind for a rainy day ^^
Oh, well, that edit is ages old you know.. and I didn't leave entirely anyway. I think I had a break from the site about half a year, but still checked to see if anything happened from time to time. Then finally, somebody successfully revived the Kaelicious RP, and shortly after I took over leadership, and it's still running today ^^
Honestly... I'm kind of afraid of any words that have "fan fiction" in them, but if you have a kewl RP in the same genre as Avataria was, or Kaelicious is, then I might be game, despite being totally busy all the time
It is a hack in the sense that you have to take care of some low level details yourself. Just to get some tiny optimizations people sacrifice readability, maintainability and safety.
It is is a hack in the sense that you declare your struct to extend array but it will not be a subtype of array as one might think. ("array" is not even a type in vJass)
It is a tool people use to implement hacks like ARGB. Wurst has tuple types for those cases which are much nicer in my opinion, see for example Colors.wurst).
If you see "struct extends array" in someone’s code you don't know if he did it just for the tiny optimizations, or if he really has an allocation mechanism with some different behaviour, or if he wanted to have a type alias for integers, or if the struct is just used as a namespace, or ....
This is why struct extends array sucks. In wurst you won't need to use struct extends array, because the compiler handels the allocation right.
And all the other things which are possible due to struct extends array are also possible in wurst, but they was realized via some build in features like tuple types, enums, generics,.....
This leads to MUCH MORE readability and the features are very easy to use.
I am amazed how I keep finding active people on Hive that I cannot remember for a second, even though I definitely should. Then I begin to wonder if it is just because people change their name or if I am just overlooking some important forum area. At any rate I just wanted to compliment your polite way of telling knight off in the signature thread Oh and happy Christmas.
