This was admittedly an oversight by me, I seem to hear about this more outside of Slack than inside.

So yeah, another dude is working on another UnitDB, updates on this pending.

No love for progress on a more friendly map editor

As far as I am aware, no map editor got updated.

and the return of Lionhardt

Couldn't care less.

Alright, news time.

The Gathering of the Clan

Developer Conference tomorrow with a variety of topic on the agenda including but not limited to:
-Should it still be called dev conference
-Discussion of an (re)election process for councilor positions
-Forum technical stuff
-Should Ladder affect Global Rating

Please don't shit up this thread with complaints about any of these things, the call is in less that 24 hours and you can find out for yourself there.

Cartography Corner

Ozonex is/has releasing(ed) support for custom decals among other things in maps.
What does this mean? It means that we are one step closer to the best map ever being made and I am totally not biased on this and totally not abusing this platform to push personal things. If I was, I would be telling you it was my birthday yesterday and you all forgot.

This is apparently highly experiment so expect to either not see it soon or see it crash.

Eye Pee Vee Six

Apparently it's fixed, you can try going back to it now.

Operation rescue was fixed and broken and then fixed again, see here: viewtopic.php?f=78&t=15605

Je ne comprends pas

Un gars cool travaille sur une traduction française du jeu. Aussi je ne parle pas français et cela a été fait avec google mais si vous parlez français et que vous voulez aider, faites du bruit dans les Aeolus ou les Discords.

Shidboast
I said stupid things about Janus that sparked an overly long discussion.

People got mad at Bitcoin miners because now they can't build super dank gayming peecees because GPUs are overpriced as f***
For the love of god everyone go watch this.

WORDS, THINGS, TOTALLY NOT CLICKBAIT

You Knit Dee Bee
So after the Dev/FAF conference/call (jury still seems to be out on the name) the UnitDB mentioned a couple of weeks ago has had progress made in the sense of implimentation into the FAF client and faforever.com however all that requires things I am not qualified to talk on.

That being said the DB is currently hosted here: http://90.103.145.211 so you can go try it out.

The voicing of opinions
As those of you who watched the FAFcon (I don't care that I said the jury is still out, this is what I'm calling it) may've noticed, some of the devs weren't actually talking, some of their own volition, some because spite being some of the most technically minded people in the community can't seem to get voice-call software to work. So now like literally every post voice-call they're now looking for alternatives spite Skype sucking camel AIDS and no one under the age of 60 cares about Teamspeak or Mumble. So if you have some super duper obscure voice-call thing that magically ticks the boxes of all the devs all their super obscure set-ups, feel free to let someone know.

Two Tore E Alls
Work on more tutorials is starting after some more discussions that were had during FAF-con. There's a thread all about it here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=15841
If you think you know what noobs need to know or have some skills that could otherwise be useful (Like a voice sexier than some North London farm boy) and actually want to help, leave a post in the forum mentioned above and I'm sure someone there can put your nose to the grindstone

Shitposting
There was a lot of it, including but not limited to...
-Biceps envy
-Car crashes
-Sleep Deprivation
-Conversations on innate natural ability
And one that I cannot accurately put into words:

Holy shit, basically nothing happened this week. Just a bunch of people asking a bunch of vague questions for projects they may or may not be working on.
Also a ton of shitposting covering everything from ghosts to people's opinions on balance (spoiler: It's about as constructive there as it is in the balance forums)

So to fill up space here are a bunch of cute cats.

If that were the case I would expect more work and less shitposting in the slack.
