Chris's todo list

Figured you might like to be able to see my todo list.  I just moved it out of my notepad file and into trello, so everything is listed as just being added: https://trello.com/b/tz2k8Q15/chris-ai-war-2-todo

What does "lerping shots out of ships" mean? I know larping, not lerping

What does "lerping shots out of ships" mean? I know larping, not lerping
Quote from: Wikipedia, via google
The basic operation of linear interpolation between two values is commonly used in computer graphics. In that field's jargon it is sometimes called a lerp. The term can be used as a verb or noun for the operation. e.g. "Bresenham's algorithm lerps incrementally between the two endpoints of the line."

Lerp operations are built into the hardware of all modern computer graphics processors. They are often used as building blocks for more complex operations: for example, a bilinear interpolation can be accomplished in three lerps. Because this operation is cheap, it's also a good way to implement accurate lookup tables with quick lookup for smooth functions without having too many table entries.

Please, please don't let the shots larp.

I look at that, and am totally lost.  I dunno how you guys do this stuff really.  Interesting though even if I understand very little.

My favorite version of that skit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zng5kRle4FA

Hey, do you remember the Gazebo monster we put into Valley 1 as a bit of an easter egg?  Most of the Gazebos were harmless, but a tiny minority were absolutely deadly murder machines.

I completely forgot about that. :)

I seem to be having a similar problem.

Hey guys, can you take a look on here? https://forums.arcengames.com/ai-war-ii-kickstarter-reward-questions/155-failed-badge-imports/

Either way, if you can let us know what your badge should be (based on this chart: https://forums.arcengames.com/ai-war-ii-kickstarter-reward-questions/announcement-slight-adjustment-to-assignment-of-forum-badges-and-in-game-credit/), then we can get that set up for you manually since the import didn't match.  Thanks!
