so
question
why does a square follow your mouse
why did you do that
jhl989
@jhl989
Dec 06 2014 06:48
i think i was going to make it a proper tooltip
that comes and goes depending on what you're over
but then i didn't
so it's just a square
maybe i shouldn't have pushed

I'm getting the feeling that the clients want it super easy
:/
I think it's because they don't want it to be "depressing"

harry-sanabria
@harry-sanabria
Dec 06 2014 19:04
so i find that the way i have it now
is early its easy
just soap soap soap
but later on, soap is kinda a desperate measure
and the real power comes in electrolytes
and you are waiting for the electrolyts cooldown
which is actually rather fun
lamerriman
@lamerriman
Dec 06 2014 19:05
you can leave it that way for now, and we can see what playtesters say. if they say they like it the way it is, then we have a justification for making the game that way

oh hi
sorry
what's up
lamerriman
@lamerriman
Dec 06 2014 20:31
oh hey that explanation for boiling water
"Boiling water prevents cholera from spreading from villages further upstream"
wut
Should it maybe say "Boiling water reduces contamination from infected villages upstream"
Also everything needs to say locality instead of village
or fuck the clients and just say village
but it needs to be consistent
