    Alluysl reacted to Warden in "Replay mod" and cameras   
    I'm all for (working, non-explitable) security cameras with additional functions (beyond a "live feed only" such as recording, perhaps depending on how much energy or 'recording space' you can provide in-game and so on), but the bot thing sounds a bit odd to me so far.

    Yarr!
     
    But seriously - alpha could be applied to other elements, like screens or windows, too. Next thought: from a technical perspective it would work for lights too - reducing alpha on light radiation would enable us to "fake" the "lightness" part of HSL in RGBA, because alpha would serve a similar idea as lightness, at least keeping the hue the same.
     
    To calculate a soft pulse for three channels is more work than just shifting alpha up and down, always using the same values for RGB. If alpha on light-emitting elements doesn't work out engine-wise, one could always translate the fourth channel internally - or just not add this method to the LUA object of these DPUs.
     
    But maybe they'll just go for setPower() with a 0 to 1 factor. Or 0 to 255. Or 0% to 100%. Alpha, power, lightness... in the end the results are similar for light emitters

    Now for something a little different. 
     
    Since there's not really any other place to post this, I thought I'd share a small collection of architecture from the real world (and some sci fi art) that might be a bit inspirational to people wanting to really "Wow" others with their work. If anything this is just a bookmark for myself.
     
     
    To start off here's what I fully expect looking up in the Novark area will look like to people spawning in for the first time several months after release.

    SI units - there's no sense and use in using an old, outdated, useless system which is only used by 3 countries. Unify the world and start using SI, it makes much more sense

    I'd prefer some togglable feature between the two. I can just never visualize the bigger meter units like a meter, kilometer etc.
     
     
    Dead Earthly Vegan units of measurement?

    alternately we can measure our units by how many dead vegan bodies it takes to cross the distance

    People should really not be trying to mix units of measurement in space travel, does anyone remember what happened to the Mars Climate Orbiter?

    Alluysl got a reaction from Ben Fargo in RGB lights   
    So if data links can carry non-binary information (which I think they can, for screens for example), why not having a light with three inputs for 8-bit values (integers between 0 and 255), one for red, one for green and one for blue? We could have the lighting changing depending on the situation, for example red if the base is attacked or green the day and blue the night (light detectors btw?)

    I like the general idea
     
    But I don't think we need three inputs. LUA scripting should be way more sophisticated than wasting 3 connectors for 24bit color settings. I guess if this will be realized, we'd rather get proper light setting methods for the LUA object on the DPU 
     
    for key,value in pairs(self.StatusLights) do     self.StatusLights[key].setColorRGB(230, 32, 8) end  
    <edit>
    Regarding the code: to change the color of all your status related illumination, you'd first add all those lights to a table and then use a method to go through all of them and set the color. I've put fixed values for RGB above, but you could pass them as arguments to your method and use something like self.SetStatusLightRGB(230, 32, 8) on a button element labeled "Enable Alert!".

    Or .setColorHSL() maybe?
    What happens on .setColorRGBA() then? Do we get octarine!?
