Dude!
After countless updates breaking my theme and 5 times reporting it (and having it 'solved'), every goddamn update still continued to rape my theme like a lil bitch.

Best solution - never update. I still can play, watch replays and occasionally troll aeolus with my 1 year old client :roll:

Development releases break theming mainly because the client gives a lot of freedom with the .ui files, and changes in code can cause them to no longer match. I try to avoid changes that break themes, but they occasionally have to happen - in 0.17.2 the reason was completely rewritten chat.
FAF python client dev. You client misbehaves? Pester me.

Oh and the results from last week's survey are in.
Turns out most of you aren't in the slack and actually care about what happens.

Crumpets Were On Sale So Now I Look Forward to Breakfast Edition

Map Generation?
So a dude showed up with something he's called a 'map generator' it seems more like a tool to come up with map concepts rather than something that procedurally generates maps on game start but still looks neat.
More info can be found here now: viewtopic.php?f=53&t=16134

Replay Vault is Fugged
Dunno why, devs haven't said much, send help pls.

Shidboast

5am paperwork edition

@everyone
After a long long heated discussion some of the devs are looking into the possibility of having the IRC channels more clearly show when new messages have appeared in them
Something along the lines of different colours, blinking names or a little icon kind of akin to how PMs or mentions in aeolus currently work.
I wasn't part of the conversation but I am curious what the public thinks.

Skynet
It seems there is currently a private test running on what more or less equates to AI optimisations for Sorian and the old GPG AI.
This is estimated to go public in a few weeks

Cartography
OzoneX released a new version of his map editor, this made a lot of people very happy and was widely regarded as a good move.

-Is Austria real
-Is Quebec real
-Grammar nazism
-Dual Gap

Why did everything have to happen this week edition

Player Councilor
Hasn't really been talked about in Slack but you can read about it here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16218

MISHUNS
Work on some co-op missions has started, ETA: Whenever.

The Great Map Debate
Alright so after me getting some information I wasn't apparently supposed to have a cubic fuckton of arguing, voice calls that were happening too early in the morning and several hundred paragraphs of drafting the long and short of what happened to those who weren't in on the shitshow but knew there was a shit show is this...
The Map and Mod branch of the council while still in it's infancy was establishing it's in what many considered concerning and ass-about-face manner which basically equated to them not first setting out guidelines and some errors on the administration's part about who has permissions to do things outside of Map and Mods. Most of this has now been resolved thanks to the cooperation of the M&M team and resident FAF skeptics and looks set to grow and adapt to be a part of the FAF community in a more promising manner.

And on the topic of growing, during the several hours I spent observing these conversations and reading through logs information was brought to light to me, things like how the map vault is apparently populated by somewhere upwards of 20000 maps and I am still not aware of the current state of mods. To say the task ahead of the M&M team is monumental would be an understatement in both dealing with what has come before and what is going to be and they need volunteers to help. FAF is always looking for people willing to contribute however most people and some cases is a matter of having prior technical experience with a subject, the M&M team however is not bound by this and is willing to take just about anyone who is willing to help. If you are interested in helping out, their discord can be found here https://discord.gg/86PUtHT
