No, I didn't take a 16-month vacation. I was just engulfed in work and real-life priorities.
Also, I was stumped by problems with the PlasmaSum tool, then I was discouraged by my inability to delete visible objects in prps, which was a big show-stopper, as it made any change to existing prps very limited. Add to that the difficulty of going back to a coding project after a year.
Then I learned that you can actually just delete the contents of sum files, as Dustin does with Drizzle, and I found out how to delete visible objects, which is encouraging.
I just completed a tool
for deleting visible objects in prps, which can also be integrated into UruDistro.
Recently Sculp has published changes to Cyan's spyroom
. This has made clear that:
1- Making changes to existing Ages, and trying them is fun and interesting, and
2- Distributing such changes, not so much, and
3- Manually applying such changes, not so much.
And this was for small changes that caused no conflict with other changes.
This gives me some motivation for taking up work on UruDistro again.
