Title: Wake up!
Post by: jrgp on June 28, 2014, 06:48:18 am
Okay Soldat Forums, it's been almost THREE days since your last post. This is extremely unnerving. What was once a lively thriving community is almost past dead. This forum is in danger of being archived and merged into some unified THD grand forum. I don't want that to happen. Seeing the amount of decay this forum has gone into honestly brings a tear to my eye as I've been coming here daily over the past 10 years.

Here are the rules for this thread:

1) If there are no posts elsewhere in the forum for over 1 day, post *anything* here.
2) Anything constitutes stuff that is not banned in the rules.
3) Go!

Indeed, I've been watching this cancer-like stagnation for the past few months myself and I dont see a lot of ways to get out of this damned state. It is truly unnerving what has become of this place. We can try and bump activity a little bit. I WOULD PREFER NOT TO SEE IT ARCHIVED so wake the fuck up!

What about a shoutbox?

Also we should really get some more veterans bumpin' on here.

LOL, first you threat all new users like trash, because they post random topics/posts like here: http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=43219.0 or here: http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=38412.260

AND NOW YOU ARE SAD THAT YOU ARE ALONE HERE?? xD cool!

Now you have only few older users that talk only about some random stuff, even devs dont post anything new, hell! No one post anything about soldat! even now there is less that 100players in game.
Why?

Because some dicks that think they are "veterans" and own everything, discouraged every new idea made by new users, and others say that changes need time... sorry this game is too old to talk like that Get your sht done, remove all F trolls that bashing every new idea and start fixing this game, because like Adam said in this threat:
http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=43537.msg520761#msg520761

All that Fckers that are so proud that they are here for more than 6 years did nothing in the past few years, only: BLA, BLA, BLA, BLA, BLA, BLA, BLA, BLA,  talkin talking talking.

And what you gonna get in the next version of soldat? few random bug fixes that shoudl be removed 8-10 years ago, probably new stupid idea about movement or weapons and maybe 10% less players than now.
You should thx your "veterans" users that their approach to everything new is like: "GTFO you are noob".


I hope now you have topic to talk.
Because looking at you now, I think you didn't deserve for anything better than random rant not related to actual game, because thx to some of you no one like spending here time anymore. you are all alone now.

Yeah, goodness, I used to come here daily. Being here for 7 years, I don't want it to disappear. I still rely on this forums for, well, EMOTIONAL SUPPORT. Lol, maybe not literally, but it's a nice reprieve. Plus, in a month or so, I'm going to go back to mapping.

Anyway, I still really enjoy this forums. A merge into a THD forum would suck, and would probably not look half as nice, plus we'd lose our independence and the chance for oldies to come back to what they used to know.

A shoutbox would do OK indeed. F12

Also we should really get some more veterans bumpin' on here.

Bleh, a shoutbox would just shit up the forums.

And having veterans visit is in no one's control.

Post by: Blacksheepboy on June 28, 2014, 06:50:31 pm
Unfortunately does this place have validity for being independent aside from devlogs that could be combined with a larger forums? I guess I would argue, yes, given that I've already said that it gives veterans a place to rejoin, and that the game popularity could spike with future updates (desperate, but maybe).

I'm glad an attempt to keep this forums alive is out there. I think of the forums from time to time...

I used to sit and refresh the forums, waiting for responses.
Title: Re: Wake up!

I used to sit and refresh the forums, waiting for responses.

I still do that. Whenever I'm on a computer, even at work at every job i've had, I always have an 'Active Topics' tab open and refresh it periodically throughout the day. I know some oldies refer to these forums as their first "internet forum" and have since moved elsewhere, but I haven't. Only forums I visit are these and 4chan, the latter of which doesn't count as its stateless and i only browse it when i'm drunk at 2am. Even if I didn't get into a staff position in the soldat/thd community and gain responsibility for maintaining the soldat forums/servers, I'd still come here and refresh active topics as a community member.

God DAMN that looks good. I should probably learn to cook and buy ingredients to make that kind of sandwhich. Food porn is always welcome, even if it's for the sole purpose of keeping a forum alive. I don't know what that bowl is filled with though.

Same here.

Also to be honest,

When I check unread posts, most of what I see are random topics with random people giving their opinion on things for which they have no expertise...
Just like now, I checked the "Show unread posts since last visit." And apart from this thread, all I saw was:
"Religion Re-Envisioned"  http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=43593.0

Seriously guys...  I check here to see things related to Soldat. And what I find are topics about religion...
I'm starting to wonder if this forum has any relevance and pertinence left.

Not only that but let's pretend I'm interested about this religion topic. Why would I discuss it here? Why not go to a History/Philosophy/Theology forum instead. There I would learn things from people who at least have a clue of what the fuck they're talking about.

Sorry, jrgp, if this forum is loosing activity. It's not your fault in any way. It's just the reflection of the game Soldat itself losing activity.

Maybe the devs could write some devlogs to spice it up a bit?

yeah JEEZ i came by here to hang out and see who still posted to discover how infrequent of a thing that is. yikes
hi Blacksheepboy, Shoozza, DorkeyDear, cheeseman, good to see y'all

Alternatives to teh forum, 'cause it's so depressing:
What if we left this forum running but heavily advertised the official soldatforums IRC channel? We could all hang out there and talk about soldat, there are so few of us that it might make the most sense. or maybe a soldatforums subreddit? I know reddit has a bad rap to many but I personally find the hierarchical style of posting and responding to people superior to these classic categorized forums (at least for small homogenous communities).

The forum could stay open for newbies who have questions or want to browse what's left of the maps/mods.
What about official soldat gameservers? We could set dates for soldat gathers, say, on a couple random days in each month, so everyone has a shot at making it to one.

With the addition of background polys i'm tempted to get back into mapping. make a mappack or whatever. i know i was never the best mapmaker but pumping some consistent and new content into the game might do it some good. Dunno. Was polyworks fixed to support background polys?

As for the devs & new versions, the game looks really good nowadays. I like where it finally matured to— I still liked 1.3.1 the most but y'know whatevs
All the same, perhaps we as a community should brainstorm to figure out what soldat's FINAL FORM should be. if just a couple more bugfixes and a quiet death is what we really want, or if Something Big could happen.
Edit: Just read that post by Adam (http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=43537.msg520761#msg520761). My sentiments exactly, too bad I don't know what to do about any of this.

Regarding "official" servers, I host 18 for KAG (spread over US, DE, and AU) and their IPs/ports are hardcoded into the game itself so they show up gold colored and bold in the ingame server list. That is mainly for quality control as Furai maintains those servers in terms of banning people and setting the modes and stuff. I think Soldat would benefit from that if it had the player base it did 10 years ago.

It would also make sure that people could maybe play on good servers again.
Currently the few "new players" Soldat will get will have to play on unmoderated servers which are full of retards running around with their Chainsaw, Brt & M79 for the whole time.
They'll have to play with 20 people on maps which were made for 6-8 players and they will get spammed with retarded scripts and in the end they will think that the /mine command which places a mine on the ground is an official game feature.
Then they'll uninstall the game.

There is #soldat.devs and no one ever talks about the game there (no one talking about anything there at all). What should we talk abou though? There is not too much to talk about anymore after 12 years.

Yes! Working just fine!

Adam's post (http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=43537.msg520761#msg520761) quite much points it out.

- discouraging talented and motivated people always bothered me / It seemed that no one really cared about the amazing work Akinaro made for Soldat and again no one saw the high rate of work he contributed. He would have been capable of redoing all Soldat maps / Menus / Logs and everything visual related in a very short time but all he got was insults. one of his maps (http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=43531.0)
He is by far the best mapper we had in visual terms, everyone disagreeing here, has no idea.

but the fact that suggestions have been ignored for years and hold back made the game and the forums to where we are now.
I'm especially talking about the

- GUI
- Account System / Soldat Portal (which was highly blamed by soldatforums members for no reaon)

- Ant-Cheat (it's not that bad without anti-cheat right now but I guess it didn't have a good impact though)

I have made a post about the need of a new GUI and Account System / Portal / Stats on selfkill.com which must have been in 2006 or 2007 and all the german community did was giving dumb replys like "play Call of Duty then" because they lack the idea behind what marketing is and how important the visual look of the menu and GUI is (the first thing the player will see after installing the game) and the portal (which shows the latest game news, manuals, links and what not) and Account System (for the case that there is no anti-cheat, it will help to get hackers banned, it does give the devs statistics about the playerbase, new registrations etc. and of corse the stats system which is one of the most important things in games since it's getting people hooked.)

the list is quite large.

By the way: For everyone who really still believes that bug-fixing is needed in Soldat, I'm just saying this:

Soldat is quite much BUGFREE.
EA Sports, a multi-million company, releasing FIFA every year has bugs. (ref will end the match if it's in 90+ but if you are just about to shoot a goal, because they are too dumb to recognize that YOURPLAYER.POSITION = close to the enemies goal
it has several other bugs which BREAK the game.

Soldat doesn't have such. (I'm not counting eats as a bug)
I play Soldat on a highly frequence again and I can say that I have never seen heavy bugs which would break the game.

Don't even try to argue with me, you will get smashed  :-\

but yeah, welcome back

Why does everyone think we turn talents down? Should we have gladly embraced his major douchebaggery with joy as he tramples on all the things socially not accepted in this forum? Have we called him out like "your stuff sucks, go away!" ???

No, we did not. We encouraged him to map, but also told him to shut the fuck up. He didn't, and now he's gone. Or were we supposed to hold our arses for him so he may ravage in us for the sake of a couple of maps? You got to be kidding me.

As for myself, I was discouraged to map, because none of the staff responsible for maps got in contact with me. I wrote a couple of PMs asking for what's up and whether they need help fixing bugs in maps, or what they think about the remakes - but nothing. Akinaro was actually told his maps are amazing, so what the fuck.

I already host (and rent (https://gshost.us/buy/game/soldat/location/US)) a bunch of soldat servers for random people, and of course the "jrgp's" servers which occasionally are full.

Regarding an account system/portal: right before EnEsCe was kicked off the devteam he did complete an account system and portal for the game, including "lobby chat" based on IRC. The added functionality garnered mixed to negative reception. Once development was transferred to Shoozza, the new devteam worked for a while removing all traces of the account system from the code.

I agree with you about bugfreeness. I've played the hell out of most of the Soldat releases since 1.2.1 and none of the "bugs" pissed me off that much and I hardly ever noticed them.

-mine command is only available on ctf#2 so dont overreact
-ctf#4 is 16 slots and is most popular server atm so dont question players taste
- theres m79 and ret limitation scripts running
- there are no admins cause everyone from the old admin crew eventually stopped playing or plays once per month, however im on arsse 7:50am-4pm on weekdays as i can easily run it at work so yeah theres that, if help is needed everyone can easily request me. Plus you know there are votekicks and players can use their inner democracy to take care of the server themselves

For a while this has been the case with my remakes too. I realize some of them still have a long way to go, and I'm glad that at least Fortress and Warehouse remakes got in, so not all is bad. I'd love to see your Voland remake too, it's incredible especially in comparison to how butt-ugly the original is. Some of Akinaro's remakes are also amazing and it would be great if they were included as defaults, but alas, Akinaro would rather have them rot away.

It would be nice to have a slightly better communication from the map team, so map(re)makers are better aware of what their remakes are lacking and why are they not added to the default pack. There are some really good remakes out there, it's a real shame they're nothing but a piece of eyecandy buried in the forums' depths.

No, players dont choose where they want to play by themself and they dont pick your 4 Servers out of 150. They pick your 4 servers out of 15 servers (which have some players on it) and since your servers got the most players they'll most likely join them. It has nothing to do about the servers but no one will join empty servers. That's just it.

-ctf#4 is 16 slots and is most popular server atm so dont question players taste
If you start growing up with some cheap fake coka cola then you'll obviously drink it, not because it tastes so amazing, but because you don't know any alternatvies.
Your map pool is that fake coka cola and the players didn't have the opportunity to taste the amazing real coke yet.

Yes

dardar so mad on my servers even though they are pretty much only active ctf;d
As I said above they are not active for their quality but for the inactivity of all other servers. Players will always join the full servers instead of empty servers and those are yours right now.
I'm mad about the poor way Soldat looks like if players would play on them. I remember having fun a few years ago on public servers. I can't say that nowadays (at least on the CTF Servers)

It's quite easy to find out about how other people think and behave and someone with a common sense about that could just have shutup by himself instead of insulting him for no reason over and over again. Things like "You are a good mapper but a horrible person" as a first reply to a new map doesn't really give a good impact on such.
If you know that your opinions might be different than by some other member but you see him contributing aweseome work to the community then just shut the fuck up or answer in a solid way that he won't be hurt too much.
It's quite easy, just read his mind a little.

Also, do something about the mapping team, wow and replace those awful old maps and replace them with the TONS of remakes we have there, or add some new. WHERE IS THE PROBLEM HERE ?! Jesus.
It's not even work to do, just copy+paste (shortkey : CMD+C then CMD+V if that will help)

jrgp:
Regarding an account system/portal: right before EnEsCe was kicked off the devteam he did complete an account system and portal for the game, including "lobby chat" based on IRC. The added functionality garnered mixed to negative reception. Once development was transferred to Shoozza, the new devteam worked for a while removing all traces of the account system from the code.
I know about that, it was the most promising soldat version we ever had and it was sad to not see it happen. It worked just amazing in the beta.
Even though it was even added way too late back in the days, and when NSC didn't share the code no one seemed to bother to re-do it.


About merging all THD related forums to one:

Why not ?
It's not a bad thing and especially about marketing that's a good way to get the new THD games shared to the playerbase of the other games.
I dont see something bad about it just that it's no longer as unique as a "private" forum.

About the dead forum:
I myself am more the reader than the writer and I guess others act the same way, and if there is nothing to read (by others) the chance will even get lower to ever write something. Time of "modding,mapping,tools,interfaces and whatnot" releases is over too. So, most things we could talk about are some offtopic things or whenever there is a devlog ( which does not happen too often sadly and the last 2 devlogs quite much said that there was no code-progress made yet, at least nothing about that was posted)

You can't create a hype if there is nothing to hype about.

I just hope to see those "big projects" for 1.6.8 - 1.7, whatever they are but I hope one of them is a new GUI.

If you start growing up with some cheap fake coka cola then you'll obviously drink it, not because it tastes so amazing, but because you don't know any alternatvies.
Your map pool is that fake coka cola and the players didn't have the opportunity to taste the amazing real coke yet.
CTF#4 as you might have picked up from the name was created last. So its purely players decision they play there. As for maps I tried to introduce big ass maps to ctf#4 with slight success but it turned worse with time so I had to reverse it. Old mapslist consisted of gems like ctf_Kaolon, ctf_Harlequin, ctf_Festen, ctf_Silence etc



In december it will 5 year anniversary of starting my first zabijaka.pl server, this indicates that players indeed chose them over others.

@L[One]R: Exactly my thoughts. On an unrelated note: I would love to see you frequent deviantART more. :P

@darDar: Here's the web definition for constructive criticism for starters: Constructive criticism is the process of offering valid and well-reasoned opinions about the work of others, usually involving both positive and negative comments, in a friendly manner rather than an oppositional one.

I bet you could help Bonecrusher better his servers. I too believe they need some tweaking here and there, so why not? He's sponsoring them off his own money, I don't think he deserves being talked to like that.

I cannot resist pointing the irony out when you call the community out for 'turning talents down by insulting them' (generalisation btw, it was only Akinaro) and then you compare Bonecrusher's servers to fake cola. Way to go.

Guess this is the thread for the death of Soldat or something like that. Ironic that it would be made by jrgp.

I got banned for posting Goatse as a dare by the name of Fluffy one day a long ago. Then I got back by the name of Antipathy and probably talked just the same shit as I always did. Anyway. Just here to pay my respects for the game. It was dope. Still is I guess, haven't tried in a long time. Whatever you do MM, I wish you the best of luck in your ambitions whatever they may be although you are most likely humming mantras in Tibet right now instead of reading this. Also my kudos for the Bash Pit, fuck the mods for deleting it, fuck all the moderators in fact, you were shit all day long, fuck you all, except that one guy, he was pretty cool, he was alright.

I'm going now, goodbye. I'm going into the light.

Post by: STM1993 on February 26, 2015, 12:42:12 pm
Well, since this thread isn't too old, I guess I'll leave my 2 cents.

I was a casual pubber who started playing Soldat in 1.3, living in Southeast Asia. Naturally, my timezone doesn't match and I don't get good ping in many games - Soldat included - usually I have at least 200 ping in any server I play, but I can tolerate up to a maximum of 300 ping. Regardless, I played Soldat a lot, especially INF servers (GameArena, anyone?) and later scripted (zombie) servers until the 1.5 era. To me, 1.4.2 was the peak of Soldat.

That was when the number of pubs started declining, and the non-regular servers I visited began disappearing - trench wars, boss arena, zombies... gone. For regular games, I saw a gradual rise in the number of Barretts and M79s being used, which began to bug me more and more. I eventually found interest in Advanced Zombie, and ended up working with Tehbugerz0r (http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?action=profile;u=11163) as an admin and advisor for the server. Unfortunately, as eC stopped hosting, and the server was gone. We kept in contact for a 3rd version of the script, but we eventually had a falling out over my comments on S4 League. With that, my interest(and mod responsibilities) in Subvein: Mutant Factions and my conscription for 2 years, I stopped visiting/playing Soldat for a long time.

I came back to see the game and forums very occasionally like today. While I'm happy to see that development has greatly improved over the 1.5 days, it seems the damage had already been done. When I tried to look for a match, I would find few occupied servers within my ping range. As mentioned earlier, I live in SEA, and most of the activity appears to be in Europe, the location of which I have the worst pings of 350-450. On the few games I managed to find, I would quickly be turned off by the number of Barretts & M79s flying around. The only servers within ping range that always had players were the Snipe n Slice CTF servers, and I'm not optimistic that there'd be a boost in pub players anytime soon and that's the final nail on the coffin.

I do hope Soldat regains popularity in future though, its one of the few games where you could just start up and play a quick match. Until then, I'll disappear again and maybe re-appear when I have a burst of nostalgia.

So you think it will become abandon-ware? Well, shucks.

I really think this game holds potential... but yeah, it has been eclipsed by a long life and shower of other games so that the younger generations like I was once won't even find this game. That's what it takes to keep this game alive. Now we're all older, just clinging on. That's my synopsis.

See God is all light - white , but man is half white and black, therefore man could create and change state of reality
in a way how God never could. We listen to God, wants we listen. Then its about the perfect balance - gold middle way!

We project this idea on something practical - Soldat development;
It means that one transforms itself into sin, could able one to step over these limitations.
And later reclaim his Jesus righteousness through absolution.
To affect current state of development, because its system - its stable - become part of physics reality.

That smilie reminds me of a demonstration I had against the communist party. They were demonstrating against some war in Iraq and I went down alone with a sign which read "Ja till kriget!" (Yes to the war). They were quite angry at the sight of me and police ordered me to disperse, which is kind of hard for one person to do. They didn't tear me apart luckily, but then I was basically treated like something lower than an animal because I happened to like the local football team. Could be something for malmö fans to do.. or wait, didn't they already stab some commie faggot called Showan Shattac? Maybe it's time for malmö fans to be put in concentration camps because of what happened in their town?

I've got mixed feelings towards ikea:

Pros:
- really lightweight furniture once build so it's easy during moving
- build process is usually easy and cartoons are cool
- cheap

Cons:
- really lightweight furniture which is flimsy as hell in some cases
- sometimes uncomfy
- store is so big i've gotten lost several times

I already got Flux because of some mild eye irritations. A pal of mine has more severe problems because of gaming. Careful with too much light guys! Don't go staring into your monitor with full light for long periods every day.

The thing about some mattresses is that they contain bad chemical stuff that you might not want to breath in. Basically all furniture contains these bad chemicals, that's why fresh air is so nice. My wife is allergic to Latex and reacted to many of the mattresses we tried. Hastens beds are made from pure organic stuff, good for you and good for nature. I will come back to you about the sleeping quality after I've spent some nights in it. Sleeping quality has much to do with finding your preferred hardness/softness. You can also choose between spring mattress where the mattress will breath a lot more and help you bounce out of bed or tempur/foam mattress that will wrap around you and feel soft but will not bounce or breath. The quality of the materials used will decide how much moisture like sweat the bed will transport away and if the bed regulates heat when it's too hot/cold.

It will take a month for them to create and assemble the bed and get it delivered so I will come back to you after that :)

I spent about 5 times as much as an IKEA bed. Normal persons will probably be fine with an IKEA bed but after having some issues with their customer service and learning about chemicals we decided to try hastens.


Heh, I talk about not letting small chemicals enter my body while you talk about smoking weed. Well, your choice, I even cough when walking past regular smokers.

Goddamn, that's a lot of factors to consider. I'm already having sleep issues, but with so many potential causes I have no idea where to even start. :/ Also how does one "react" to a bad mattress? And how big is the effect of those chemicals? If you're not even sleeping on the mattress directly (without any sheets) - surely you're not coming into contact with any more chemicals than your body is used to on a daily basis?

Post by: homerofgods on August 12, 2016, 04:44:35 am
Out of the many consumers who have bought memory foam beds, a very small portion seem to experience allergic-type reactions. There are some reports online of people experiencing nose, throat or eye irritation, asthma irritation, or nausea which they attribute to mattress odors. These reviews are in the minority compared to the thousands who have owned memory foam without incident over the past 25 years. According to Sleep Like The Dead’s research, odors cause less than 2% of people overall to return these mattresses. http://www.sleepjunkie.org/are-memory-foam-mattresses-safe/

After trying various beds I would recommend going to a store with lots of beds and just try them all until you find the right hardness for you. The more expensive they are the softer they are supposed to be but it doesn't necessarily mean you like them better. You will probably not find beds without toxic chemicals in them, but you can ask about their ability to transport moisture.

It's hard to choose a bed really :p There's even more to think about; Do you want high legs so that you can vacuum under your bed or store stuff under your bed? Do you want a wooden frame around your bed or do you want your bed to be frameless?

I started with some specifications I wanted and I started at the most expensive store to have a good reference when I was out looking elsewhere

My specifications was:
160x200 (have no room or need for more), High legs (26 cm), No wooden frame (want to sleep close to the walls on the side), Only organic materials (good for nature, good for me and my wife's allergies), Spring mattress (breaths and transport moisture better), One harder side for me and one softer side for my wife (it's common that girls get softer side because of their natural curves), The 160 bed needed to be split in two 80 beds so that I don't fall down towards the middle if she sleeps towards the middle, this also makes the bed more easy to move around.

Also, we have ordered bamboo sheets and duvet covers, the alternative was some high quality cotton but bamboo feels softer and more stretchy ;p It also has very good qualities.

Woah, nice to see that this dialogue is going into a more serious, productive direction. The 'smoking weed' thingy was not meant to be serious of course.
I have heard about that flux thing a lot lately, already started using it on my phone (since it was super easy to get it running). Will have to read into how to use it on my linux laptop.

My 2 cents for sleeping better and basically all issues "civilized" people face: meditation & yoga. Try it out & live happier! If you need more info on that, I will be more than glad to help you...

Thanks to both of you, though meditation/yoga/any sort of physical activity is out of the question due to my physically-lazy lifestyle. :P I do have a little routine before sleep though which seems to have somewhat of a meditative effect. I suppose my main issue right now is the mattress - I have a spring mattress I brought from the cottage which looked nicer, but seems to have quite a bit of odor now that I've checked it up-close. I'll get my old one back and see if it's any better. I also have a foam one on top (I find spring ones a bit too hard), but perhaps it's not taking the summer heat and moisture too well. I might just look into buying a brand new one and actually pay attention to materials.

On a sidenote, nice to see Soldat Forums finally stopped shitting bricks. At least for now.

The right mattress definitely has a huge impact on your sleep, no doubt. If you are healthy both physically and mentally, however, you will be able to sleep like a log even on a wooden floor. :)

Especially if you are physically-lazy, you should aim for doing some physical activity.
BTW: meditation is not a physical activity, but mental. You can even do Yoga without moving (Yoga is not only the physical practice most people in the western world know)

Exercising certainly help increasing my sleep quality. And I'm trying to force myself to never eat after 20:00. If you eat late the food will tumble about in your stomach all night and I have a feeling it's better for your body to not have food in your system that long.
I'm also gonna buy a fitbit or something that can tell me when to sleep based on the data it gathers from you. I wonder if all this will make me have more energy.

Have you tried any phone apps with the same function? Sleep as Android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.urbandroid.sleep&hl=en) is supposedly one of the best ones out there, and Alarm Clock Xtreme (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.alarmclock.xtreme&hl=en) also has some basic tracking. Not sure how reliable they are since my phone's a bit basic and is missing some hardware features that might be needed for better tracking. So far, Alarm Clock Xtreme has been working reasonably well for me, though I've yet to get a sleep score that's better than 60/100.

Ok I've had my bed for some time now and I've got to give you a little update :)

First of all I got to say that I was ill with a pretty high fever last week, and when the fever is leaving your body you sweat a whole lot! So there I was laying in my new bed with bamboo sheets and mattress covers freezing and sweating every other minute, I could feel the sweatdrops running down my body ending up in what i believed to be a soaked bed. The next day I was feeling a lot better, but not so energetic that I wanted to change the sheet and covers. To my surprise, the bed felt completely dry, and even more amazingly there was no bad smell! There was only the little scent of bamboo and horse-hair (very weak scent), and I thanked myself for getting bamboo fabric that is more anti-bacterial in itself than other fabric, and It might have helped that the bed should be able to transport moisture rather well.
So far I've not come crawling into a bed that smelled bad.

Other than this experience I can say that I have gotten more used to the hardness of my side of the bed (my wife is also enjoying her softer side). I've got some soft pillows to soften it up when I want to.
If you're looking for a final conclusion on whether it was worth the prize? The answer is probably no, I can't say that the bed made that much difference so that it is worth spending that much more. I also got some unexpected cost from customs because I ordered the bamboo sheets and covers from abroad. However, I'm glad that I did this. I hope I have more good experiences in the time to come. I certainly don't sleep uneasy, but there might be other, less costly, things that could contribute to a better sleep enviroment, such as cover up the windows to get a darker room, reduce the amount of drafts (small winds through the house) and finding the perfect sleeping temperature.

Let me just finish this by giving you some sleep inducing music:

Just to annoy you and give you some hope that its not so dead as you think:

Most of players check forum, BUT they just dont login, because:
1. No one give crap about empty topic like this one(that for past few weeks act just as bump topic for lonely people). Because what you could get from writing here?
2. Everyone expected that new devs team will change approach to community, AND START UPDATING INFO ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON.
Or saying is simpler:
a. Make one topic where everyone who work on soldat right now, once per week or few weeks, post simple, one sentence what they made.
b. Make official list of future changes. Soldat is not AAA game, you will not get anything from "big-super" update release when its done, it will give you week of hype and then its dead again. With game like soldat you need to keep informing community about work that will be made, show them that that and that is done this is still waiting, this one need fix, that need community help. Damn basic rules of fucking game development...

And if someone mention that "you cant make such list of info because you work for free", kill your self, seriously. Posting one topic with incoming changes and one sentence once per week, when you did something for project, even: "I change color of few pixels in this graphic! look!" will not cost you anything and take you maybe 2 minutes...


And now, i will logout and with other players I will be checking forum as guest once per few weeks, until someone find balls to kindly write about future of soldat, as it should be from beginning...

cheers!

Other than graphical stuff, progress is constant but not very exciting. It might be worthwhile to post biweekly updates if there is demand for such a thing, though.

As you can see I registered almost 10 years ago, and this is my first post  ;D

I just learned some new stuff about movements today from reading the forums. Too bad several of the older youtube videos are deleted.

I'm not sure about the Steam status, but I think that could bring new life to the game. I also get that working on this game without pay, just for the fun of it, to appease a few hundred (if that) players isn't going to result in daily, huge updates. I can't seem to find any donate button anywhere, but even if there is one, a few bucks here and there probably won't make much difference. I still enjoy playing, as I think most of us do, and I don't really need huge updates with new graphics (even though the previews look amazing). The only thing I'm missing is players, and I think even having ~200 players online instead of ~80 (at night where I live) would make a HUGE difference. Right now it's (for me) exactly in some middle spot where usually the 2 servers that are populated are full, and the 3rd one is perhaps 3-4 players, haha.

Still enjoying the game though!

Maybe, we should focus on implementing better bots those would act more like players. You know... Fuck people, really. If they so stupid to play Counter-Strike or Leogue of Legends instead of Soldat then we don't need them. There are already narrow AIs developed that can talk in text. Just add it to already implemented bots. We should think about the ultimate future when developing Soldat - not just few next years. In the end, humanity will die some day but robots will live through that. So, for fuck sake developing Soldat for people? Seriously, this is pointless. We should make sure that billions of computer beings will play Soldat in the next millenium instead of few more people in the next decade.

If none of staff have literally 2min to write that they work, even on some boring coding stuff, why anyone else would have to write something in this forum? So at the end its dead.

As I said in other topic, if devs think that they get more attention by releasing new version as a big surprise... they are wrong, soldat is not AA game, its really small community with maybe 120 players that play regularly. If you dont post even small info, previews, screenshoots of maps/sceneries, everyone will not give a damn about this game, because why they should? When you, or rather if you release new version as big update, you will get initial hype, and then... you will get the same as with previous update: big hype about hd graphic, and then back to stagnation.

If soldat staff really take it seriously, start treating Soldat seriously as a Game, not some summer friend project. And dont even start mumbling that its free project, soldat is not alone with that, and posting damn few words on what you are working now dont cost you nothing + also there is really clear solution to that:

https://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=43307.msg529484#msg529484

This is most simplest thing what you can do now to get Soldat to move, to give it really needed advertising and proper support from community. Lack of clear situation of Soldat license, staff management and money distribution is one of main reason why it falling down.
Title: Re: Wake up!
Post by: daaw on April 08, 2017, 10:28:13 am
It's about putting your personal effort in. No one wants to sacrifice himself too much for greater good of Soldat.

Maybe... it's because of Pascal and Delphi. They ruined my life too. It's pain and very hard, lookas ugaly as fuck too. (︶︹︺)

I'm not sure i did a better job at communicating progress in the last year before i left though.

My idea was to only release info after the feature was complete to not disappoint the community in case things didn't work out.
When there were no news it was mostly because either the feature was unfinished and big (Soldat on linux/macOS) or nothing was happening. But that's how I handled it.

Advertising isn't necessary the solution. What you want is a welcoming growing community and a great game. That's at least my opinion atm.

Putting Soldat on steam isn't as important now as it was when steam first opened it's doors People certainly make it look like the problem solver for everything. Sure we might not know if it is or not until we try but don't bet everything on it.

That said it's great to see that there are still people around caring about the game, thanks for the post Akinaro ;)

@daaw I certainly didn't bother working on the game for the greater good and others didn't as well. About Delphi/Pascal: You probably know that the person who designed c# worked on turbo pascal before leaving for microsoft. If you like c# your opinion about delphi is more the opinion how the language was used in soldat and the soldat code base in general. Great programmers can write code in any programming language given it isn't esoteric or designed to be difficult on purpose :)

Hello, I wasn't referring anything to you. I'm joke time after time.

I'm opinion was that it's a psychology like that - believing in old ideas that hurts soldat progress the most.

Pascal/Delphi: it's a ded language.

Complete rewrite would take eternity most probably. Yet, these days most programmers asked to implement stuff in Pascal (or even C) will get an allergy symptoms xD

Not sure what you mean with "believing in old ideas". I didn't see any of that in soldat.

It isn't a dead language. Not the most popular language for sure but certainly not dead.

Just invest a few minutes and check for yourself:
https://redmonk.com/sogrady/2017/03/17/language-rankings-1-17/
https://www.tiobe.com/tiobe-index/

The Lazarus IDE and FreePascal Compilers added support for targetting JVM and Android in version 3.0 and iOS support is on the way.
Check out the available targets: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Pascal#Targets
Oh and the latest release of Lazarus was February 26, 2017.

The Delphi Tokyo 10.2 release was on March 22nd. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delphi_(programming_language)#Embarcadero_Delphi_10.2_Tokyo
You can get the Starter version for free too: https://www.embarcadero.com/products/delphi/starter/promotional-download
And they added Linux support for enterprise customers. So it is moving in the right direction as well.

Also note that the language was initially designed for teaching students structured programming so it should be easy to pick up.

Complete rewrite would take eternity most probably. Yet, these days most programmers asked to implement stuff in Pascal (or even C) will get an allergy symptoms xD
IMHO the language isn't the problem here. Rewriting it just so it uses a hyped language wouldn't necessary solve anything. You probably don't want those people over your code base anyways.

I miss the days when there were lots of public inf servers and they were always full-ish with maps like Fortress/Abel/Warehouse/Moonshine. I think that peaked around 2005-2007 or so.

Inf was always underrated among mapmakers though. We had things like TW, TTW and climb for the overall gamemode of CTF and people would put all their effort into that. A lot of Inf maps were never made which could have been awesome on any realistic server.

Yeah, that was the shit. Hoping the steam release gets some kind of traction, because it honestly wouldn't take THAT many new players to hit some kind of critical mass. All it takes is enough people that the servers aren't perpetually empty and people leave, and we can start seeing some kind of sticking power.

I kind of wish I were a streamer with any kind of following, because it would literally only take one decent popularity bump to resuccitate things.
