Everyone else gave up on this patch years ago. I suggest you do the same - it isn't going to happen. Ever. You are right about the forum - it is deader than <insert favorite Cat phrase here>. Rather than raising old threads from the dead, why not get working on a mod or something to breath a bit of ...

Line length limits are courtesy of the OS. Even Linux imposes limits based on line buffer sizes which are hardcoded at kernel compile time (IIRC). I dont get it. A file is just a big lump of bytes, some of which just happen to be newline or carriage return characters. I cant see how the OS could li...

My advice though: stick with resolutions 5 or lower. Agreed - the lower the requirements for your mod, the more people will potentially play it. Sometimes, however, you just want to push a thing to see how far it will go before it breaks :) "Text file contains line with more than 65536 charact...

I love it when people post up cool little utilities like this. Well done. Anyway, I remember the largest map size was 127*127. Edit: I dont own Multiwinia, but I would love to know if it could go higher than 127*127 (I know, I know I'm sad that way). Anybody want to test and post up the results ? Th...

Marquise Fishy! How far you have come - I remember you when you were plain old TGF :) Sorry to bring up this old chestnut again but I'm out the loop. Are you still lobbying (perhaps not the correct term, but you know what I mean) to get the Darwinia source released or is that dead horse well and tru...

Hi Cyberdyne. You may remember me from such failed mods as the Collaboration Project :) I think its excellent that the 3D Object Converter guy added Darwinia shapes to his list of supported formats. Did you explain the format to him or did he figure it out himself? Funny thing is I see support was a...

I nearly fell off my chair when I read the title of this thread.

So the codebases for Darwinia and Multiwinia are now inextricable. Is there a revelation in there about their plans for these two products, or is it all in my head ?

Cheers,

Hi Brice, Yes, unfortunately it seems you are right - it has expired. Apologies to everyone who still found the site useful, but I have searched in vain for a local backup of the content, to no avail. I will contact the hosting company, but realistically it seems like Nihilesthetics Modding Pages is...

I wrote a java applet that will convert from max ase files to darwinia .shp files. However, it used the JOGL applet launcher and it seems this has been changed and my applet doesnt seem to work anymore ( it was here http://www.nihilesthetics.info/DarwiniaModding/ShapeViewerConverter.htm ).

Thats jolly decent of you - but where to start ! There are already compiled lists of requests around the forums somewhere, but my favourites are 1. Separate images for Darwinians in different teams 2. Script driven change of Sepulveda image (Edit : < --- Done already !? ( Should read more carefully ...

Its not my first choice by any means, but you could try the PurityControl option - if you want to take the easy path, but thats not going to build your character as much. Of course, this is assuming that they didnt remove this command in one of the patches. Give it a try.

The PurityControl script comand used to kick you out of the game and open a browser window. At least I think it did - its been a while since I looked at Darwinia in any detail. Id have to take my hat off to anybody who found a practical use for this seemingly utterly useless command. However, what y...

Dont be tempted to dive straight in creating your levels from the ground up. If you plonk a few landscapes, add some spawn points and a safe area then move them about until the level just kind of works, then you might make an OK mod, but it wont be a spectacular mod. The reason this is tempting is b...
