(the camera's orthographic size is close to zero, which corrupts all UI)
Can we make a feature out of this bug?
BTW, setting it to negative flips the world and corrupts only text, making it somewhat bold.
I have an idea for a boss level.

@trollingchar That's weird, shouldn't the UI be independent of the camera's orthographic size?
 
It should. Probably.
 
I thought the UI is dependant more on the window size than the camera itself
 
I guess that Unity is made entirely of bugs. We don't see individual bugs because they blend into the crowd. Like subpixels on the screen.

:P
Is your game going to include bosses then?
 
nwp
Only the glitch gremlin.
 
In singleplayer, there will be bosses and boss squads
but multiplayer has higher priority
 
nwp
The UI is the boss.
 
@nwp sounds like a fun idea :P
 
nwp
People tend to hate it when the camera is the enemy.
 
10:50 AM
what if I encode UI in HTML and then parse it by regex?
 
nwp
Don't summon Cthulhu IRL.
 
You reminded me the guy that tried to make an OS using html
 
where can I download it?
 
He made a reddit post with all these details how the whole UI would be through html, and how customisable it would be
I saw the post some years ago, hopefully he realised his mistake and moved on
Maybe he made some desktop environment in html which would be cool

@trollingchar You can't. You use it from a browser, obviously.
It's cheating though, it's JS and not HTML. Still pretty cool.
 
yes it is

Does anyone know which is the easier 3d file format to parse that includes animations? :P
 
unfortunately, I only worked with 2d
 
Ah :/
Are you using sprite-animations on your game?
 
sprites and transformations or their parts
 
Are you storing the transformations in a file? or using Unity's animator?
 
I dunno; we animate parts with physics.
 
4:44 PM
with physics? something like ragdoll animations?
 
No, we only animate trucks, tractors and similar heavy equipment. Everything is attached via hinge and slider joints.
 
Aah makes sense
 
We could make them explode, at some point, but that would be too much fun for our target audience.
 
too much fun? What is the target audience if you don't mind me asking :P
 
Some of our clients are schools :P
 
4:52 PM
make an easter egg and if someone finds it say that it's a bug
with explosions!
 
That would be funny.
 
of course!
 
In each scene, there is an egg. If you manage to touch it, your machine explodes!
 
sounds like a plan! :P
 
I don't think I'd be able to add it subtly.
 
4:54 PM
Just add some random numbers floating together with the explosion, to make it look more bug-like
 
Hmm, we don't have a feature to display text in the scene.
 
@TomTsagk they must be red to clearly indicate that it's a bug. Features have green and cyan numbers.
 
Maybe an actual bug then?
