    Not sure if you're being sarcastic or not but regardless, you've misunderstood what I was saying. If you're in the habit of ignoring documentation in favour fumbling around, you're either inexperienced (which is fine, but don't preach to others) or a terrible developer.

    I wasn't referring to the starbound devs, who recognise that tutorials are extremely useful (as shown by this thread) and are obviously good at what they do. That's not really got anything to do with whether saying "herp derp documentation is dumb i'd rather stick a fork in my eye" is a silly thing to say.

    Now that is silly. What you just said doesn't relate to my comment, but still, it would be humorous if you could stick a fork in your eye in StarBound. xD

    That pony stuff is certainly not related to StarBound... I can tell you that. :facepalm::lod:

    Aaaand you're focusing on the wrong part of the message, entirely on purpose. Again. What'cha gonna do, report it?

    After reading through your responses on the last couple of pages...
    1. Tutorials are for anyone who wants to use them. You are perfectly within your rights to completely ignore them and do stuff on your own.
    2. Do not act like your opinion is the only one that matters. Not all people are familiar with processes that seem "brainless" to you.
    3. Do not answer a legitimate query with a personal attack. This is not appropriate. If you have nothing productive to add to a conversation, please stay out of it.

    :facepalm: I am not attacking, I am just saying that people need to actually use their brains to figure out things. For example; a puzzle, what would you do if you were stuck, and there was no internet? Use your brain, or try something until you intentionally or accidentally come across the solution. If you don't, you won't be very good at problem-solving, do you see what I'm getting at? Like a platformer, you need to choose the right moment when to jump, or attack.
    Nintendo does it best. :rainbow:

    He was asking a question...

    ^To refresh your memory.

    You did not:
    • Answer it.
    • Provide useful feedback.
    • Link him to sources where he might be able to figure it out on his own without being handed the answer.
    You did not need to respond, in other words. Someone else could have followed with a legitimate answer(Or linked him to sources such as Bartwe or OmnipotentEntity who actually deal with this sort of thing all the time), and we would have saved a page of unnecessary drama.

    I'm well aware of what things were like before the internet. I played old NES games where there was no help but what you had in your head and MAYBE what your friends had figured out if you were a lucky son of a gun.

    The internet is designed as a forum for spreading information so that people don't need to reinvent the wheel a thousand times. That's why we have massive sources of information like GitHub and Wikipedia, so you don't end up using your limited time repeating the results of things people have done more efficiently a thousand times over. Learning these skills from scratch is useful if you're actually going to be pursuing these a field of interest (i.e. Computer Science, History, etc.), but many people have no such desire.

    Sometimes people want to be creative, and lack the technically-oriented skills to let their dreams take form.

    So, last Comment on this mutated conversation:

    In old NES games like metroid, like you said, there are not many clues to solve a problem and you have to experiment, BUT if you do something like jump, you get instantaneous feedback in form of samus jumping and eventually you will find a solution.
    Here, however, we don't get feedback that fast, that is, we only get feedback when Omni or Bartwe answer with what would happen. So our only form of getting information about how something works is to ask, which is what Kawa did.

    In short: Your solution won't work because there is no way one can experiment with the starbound engine as it is not yet out (except the devs of course)

    Well, eh, yeah, this generation isn't the best, but it does create the best games.

    Whatever the hell should that mean?

    I mean that like the big games, nothing is good, but it's at least fun. Like in the GTA series I enjoy destroying stuff, in Super Mario stomping Goombas, The Legend of Zelda striking down the final Boss and indie games where I try to kill my companion or NPCs that I have obtained so far.

    but how do you GET the item?! After you make it, that is. Does it just randomley pop in your inventory? I don't understand
     
  17. Kawa

    Kawa Tiy's Beard

    They don't. There are a few ways, documented in the MOD Releases forum. I'm telling you one way that I haven't used myself in the private convo you started.

    The devs used /spawnitem during development. That's been removed/restricted.

    The most common way to get an item now is to add a recipe for it, and make it. You could also add it to monster drop pools or chest treasure pools.

    Kawa Tiy's Beard

    Removed, but not entirely. The code's still there, but nothing calls it. At least, as far as I can tell from my studies.

    Hence the slash restricted.
