    Thanks for the update to cloudflare, Xeevis! Keep an eye out for bugs.
     
  3. Thread: Please keep your forum signatures toned down in General Ember Discussion

    I'm sure many of you have noticed we have here this nice feature Firefall and many other forums have disabled > Signatures. Content appended to your every post. They have no rules as of now, you can place there text, links, images whatever you want.

    However and I'd like to stress this out, If all members here know how to utilize this feature properly without being disruptive, maybe we can keep this feature enabled. But if it's abused, used for marketing purposes and inappropriate large content that is distracting and disrupting to conversation, you can be sure it will be eventually disabled, permanently.

    For example: If you have information about yourself, please weight if it's worth having it appended to every single post of yours.
    What you can do instead: Post info about yourself in the about box, you can then put just a link inside signature to your about page, like > about me

    I don't want to write down rules or anything (and I'm not in the position to do so), just appeal to your common sense when making your signature. Ask yourself, if I have 5 posts on a single page, isn't my repeating signature getting in the way of important content?

    Thank you o/
     
  5. Thread: Remember all the Frames we could've had in General Ember Discussion

    Omniframe implies that it's universal all purpose frame. I'd like to see it modular. Basically same base frame and only small self-contained addons would change its appearance.

    Thank you Mark, I'm honored.

    Gandi gives just 1 standard certificate and it's free only for the first year. Also since sub-domains are used here, down the road it would probably require wildcard certificate which goes around $200/yr. Cloudflare is probably the best option to try first and see if that works for us, no commitment, no costs.

    Thanks for the fanfic :) I think you'll see Crixa has already progressed in some areas, but others will likely be compatible with stuff you've written here.

    Is Unreal 4 optimized for SLI out of the box or do you have to do stuff?

    I use Linux. Would love to see a linux version. But honestly with our limited resources, can't promise anything.

    Yes, I agree. Wanna help me get it set up so I can work on the other stuff? Cert is free with Gandi, basic cert.

    But actually I prefer Cloudflare. Just didnt' have time to get that set up.

  35. Thread: Does Udon art style really fit Ember universe? in General Ember Discussion

  36. Grummz

    Grummz Administrator Ember Dev

    I'm torn on it, personally. I agree that a stylized art style holds the test of time much much better. But I also really love the new PBR materials and realistic looking frames. We're going to experiment with Udon and non-Udon styles. Maybe even try to mix it a bit...Udon style characters in realistic frames. Might work, might not. Might look like Appleseed (the CGI version), which would be cool.
     
  37. Thread: The line between Red5's IP and Crixa's. in General Ember Discussion

  38. Grummz

    Grummz Administrator Ember Dev

    The irony of a Chinese company enforcing IP is hilarious.

    But keep in mind I studied law, have a degree, and my specialty was intellectual property law. Names can be trademarked, but Thumper and Frame were never trademarked by Red 5. Copyright doesn't protect names, per se, but can be used to show that one book or movie is a derivative work of another.

    Trademarks protect the source of origin of a product. The key on infringement is consumer confusion. If a consumer mistakes your products name for being made by someone else, then that is confusion of the source of the product. I don't think we have any issues there. Nobody is confusing Ember as being from Red 5 or The9.

    Copyright protects the *expression* of an idea, but not the idea itself. If you wanted to write a book about hunting a giant white whale, you'd be fine and not infringing on Moby Dick so long as you did not use the same characters, plot, etc. But its the WHOLE of the work that is judged together, not individual elements in isolation. So Ember is quite different as a whole, and its "thumper" is vastly different from anything Firefall ever had.

    There is a ton of confusion about IP law out there, but I'm pretty well versed in it. I think we'll be fine :)
