Release notes here!

The main new feature here is that selecting a control group is now "sticky" or "active": if more units of that control group are produced, or arrive from a different planet, they're automatically added to your selection. This allows you to continue to give a fleet movement orders without having to periodically re-select the control group to rope-in any new arrivals.

There's also some major bugfixes in how neutral units are claimed/captured (like Golems), and I think we nailed the source of units having selection circles when they shouldn't and not having them when we should.

Enjoy!
Keith

Sounds, Badger, or anyone else that hit the OSX crash-on-start, please let me know whether the OSX situation changed at all with this one.

It's reporting that error for UnityEngine.UI.CanvasScaler? That's not even something we can change, let alone change in a breaking way.

That might narrow down the potential causes. I think it's pretty clear we aren't dealing with weird #ifdef's in our code or whatever, but something is generally messed up in the way the OSX stuff is being built.

Thanks for letting me know.

Ok, I just rebuilt them all as non-development-mode, tested to make sure those ran, and pushed that up to steam. Any difference when you update with those?

Still broken, but different error message. I'm just going to attach the whole unity log here

I concur still broken on OSX.

Ok, 0.519 is out but not announced yet. Chris did a bunch of investigating and it looked like it was either some dll version changes or the settings-loading changes causing really bizarre values leading to undefined behavior, etc.

So I've switched the dll's back and made the game super-aggressive about not using any settings values until they've been initialized at least to the minimum valid values.

Please let me know how that goes on OSX and Linux :)

OSX still broken, alas. Linux works fine and the Dyson Sphere looks amazing. I think there needs to be code to prevent it from covering other interesting things. The superterminal is almost hidden under the Dyson Sphere on one map, which isn't really desirable.

Just to be clear, the errors on OSX have never been seen on Linux. Linux has worked fine the whole time.

I'm working on letting map settings be tunable in-game. I've got almost all the infrastructure down, and just need look at all the map types to figure out which settings are tweakable. This is going to reduce the number of distinct map types a bit, but you'll be able to get all of them back by changing the settings.

Yea, Chris found that to be the case as well. Currently trying something else, which led to the windows build crash-dumping before showing the window. Fun times. Trying a variant of that which will hopefully not die so aggressively.

I knew it didn't have the OSX's errors, but I remember you getting all kinds of strangeness in the wake of the settings menu update, and I didn't recall hearing that this had gone away.

Glad to hear it looks good; I haven't actually seen it in-game yet. Good point on not covering things.

Sounds great :) Distinct type count won't be a problem, it's more important to have good map types than many. And I don't think we'll have many fewer with the other map types y'all have already cooked up.

The linux strangeness is with the UI scaling problem, and full screen mode sometimes causes weird visual artifacts, which are (maybe?) a different problems.

Alright, feast your eyes upon the following map settings menu! W00t

I think I'm doing something wrong because
                ArcenSettingTable.Instance.CopyTempValuesToCurrent();
                GameSettings.Current.SaveToDisk();
doesn't actually flush any changes made in the window to disk.

The current layout is pretty haphazard, if only because there are a number of other features not implemented yet (player color, AI types, difficulty settings, choice of starting bonus ship) that will also need space here. Also I'd love an IntDropdownHidden for some settings, where I need the user to choose between a small number of discrete choices.

For other modders, adding new settings will be really easy. Add an entry in the XML, then add that name to the "Supported settings for this map type" function, then call a "GetSettingValue" function in the map generation code, then use the value.

The code needs a bit more polishing yet (and I want to see what settings in Keith's maps would make sense to show) so I'm just going to post a screenshot and request feedback for now.

Awesome :) Gotta run, but will look at that next week.

Just put in another attempted fix to the OSX Madness. Let me know whether there's any change from that.

Thanks for the help, as always :)

Sigh. Ok. Put something in to address those. Any change?
