WIP: Experimental Crazy Mod port to current UQM

Post by oldlaptop » Sun Nov 24, 2013 7:02 pm

For roughly a month now I've been working on porting Elvish Pillager's old Crazy Mod (based on UQM 0.6.2, released over five years ago) to the current development UQM code. While there's still some bugs and missing features, it's now mostly complete. Currently known bugs/missing features:

Mmrnmhrm is broken and mostly unusable (related to collisions with asteroids while tractoring them) - FIXED (Windows executable updated)
Vanilla's small limit on the number of elements in the arena at once was still in effect - FIXED (Windows executable updated)
Only normal sized teams for now (I plan to add this once I've figured out a good way to avoid the graphical glitches the old Crazy Mod's big teams had) - FIXED (see below, Windows executable updated)
Many AIs are even more broken than they were in the original Crazy Mod...

Source code can be found in the 'crazy-ng' branch in this git repository. A Windows debug build is available here, and you can get the resource pack (see below) here (thanks to Gekko for hosting these).

Since this is based on current UQM git and not 0.7.0, you will need the most recent content update pack from the UQM git snapshot page to play - Windows users can just follow the instructions there, using the Windows debug build linked above along with/instead of a 'normal' UQM snapshot build. You will also need an extra addon pack, or you will see glitches in the ship selection dialog. Windows users just need to put the resource pack linked above in the content/addons directory, if you have voices/Precursors remixes/etc it goes next to them. To build from source you just need to clone the git repository - all the needed content is there.

30-ship teams working - with almost no interface glitches!

In order to make that second screenshot happen an addon pack is needed (like the Improved Netmelee Mod's effects pack), since the image for the blue background needed to be altered. As before, if you build from source you have this already, if not you can get a copy here.
