Get actual coder/Other things

Post by Infidel on Sun Jun 28, 2015 4:31 pm

The community needs an actual coder for the server. Mediocre won't pass. Cap and Noah can only do so much. I don't know Cap's financial ability and flexibility, but the community needs an actual coder.

Also, the server should use Spire's script. It has a Fallout UI and a bunch of other things already in it. There is no reason not to use it.

One thing; I'm not sure Spire's script was available for public use or something. Lazarus is coming up, and they might have legal clauses protecting anyone else from using the script. Plus, it will only look like we're copying them. Secondly, I do agree with this post, however if it is impossible for us to find an actual coder, we should at least get a good number of coders to combine their abilities in some sort of way. Maybe teach some people to code? Maybe some of us learn to code?

That is an absolute waste of time. I know how to code but I wouldn't do it for money because I know I'm not good enough. The server needs an actual scripter, not just the owner who semi-knows lua.

That's assuming someone in the community knows a coder who's willing to do it for free, or that we have the money to hire a coder. I'm rather sure both assumptions aren't reality.

I actually have the Spire's script, and I meandered through it sort of removing any trace of it's origin. The server owner and staff all know I have it, and they have never took legal action against me. They thought I was some joke or something, and just decided to troll me about it instead.

That being said: I have offered the script numerous times to Snyder with no strings attached, and he did not seem very interested in it. The offer stands, it's a fully operational script with a few features the server doesn't currently have, so if the KWG staff changes their minds, it's all theirs.

Those of you that worry about "copying" Spire. They don't care. They've got elitist mentalities, and don't really worry about "Small time" servers that actually focus on RP. They're too busy running their Fallout-themed serious darkRP to care about us lesser communities.

For a while I was wondering why I was tagged on the forums as a developer. I don't think I really agreed to anything full-time or with a "title" (since I've been demotivated and balancing a couple projects of my own) but just said I'd try to help out when asked. The problem doesn't lie with developer know-how, but lack of communication. You could say I'm partially to blame, since I don't message anybody and ask if something needs to be done; I just expect I'd be contacted if there was a problem or request.

I don't play on the server too often, and therefore people need to communicate with me if they want something done. If I'm not being messaged and asked to make anything then that's where the problem comes in. The last time anybody from the server contacted me and talked to me about coding was almost three weeks ago.

The communication problem will be solved. If you have a request or problem to report then just post about it.
