It looks like the new version will come out approximately a year from when this began, during the summer and all, so sure.

Alright, so I've been playing around with the most user friendly way to go about this, for when the next version comes out

I was playing around with git-hub, writing a easy to read guide for it, but even still, git-hub accounts and special software for windows and mac are still needed. I want this to be so accessible even somebody on a Chromebook could do it.

So how about this? A fully editable folder in google drive.

>>Click Here to View<<

(click here for a handy Chrome native text editor)

Just sign in and add it to your own Drive (which you already have for free along with 15GB of free space if you have a Gmail account) and with that you can add and edit your own raw text files to the public folder for the world to enjoy.

I'm still fiddling with the permissions - maybe when the next release rolls around I'll set it so only files users add can be edited. If kept to the the already established format, everybody can work on their own little piece of the raws, and only that piece. I don't know, just playing around with it still.

Looking for opinion all around.

Ooooh i really like that idea. That way we don't have to upload everything. The only thing is that everything looks very similar, so things can get confused quite easily, but i can live with that :p

Yeah, it sticks to grid view for reasons beyond me. It looks much nicer if you switch it over to list view. I'll see if there's a setting around to keep it in a list.

edit:

added a changelog and a couple of foods to the mod. :)

bump -

Can I get a quick poll of who'll potentially  be interested in another DF from scratch for next release, if any?

I'd be cool with that. We could use the "minimal world" raws from this one, though edit the starting race slightly to make it new.

I kinda want to keep some of my critters, since I put a lot of work into them, but as they'd have to be retooled anyway I guess it would count as from scratch.

I have very little modding ability, so if I tried it would be minimal at best. I would love to give what you guys come up with a test play though.

Yeah, porting specific things over is cool if the authors want to support them.

Just can't  bring the whole thing over, for obvious reasons

It might be a horrible idea, but what if we make it that there's only one playable race, with the different species as castes (lizardman caste, halfling caste etc.). It makes it less confusing which race to pick when embarking , but there won't be a cultural difference between the species. There won't be special pieces of clothing for different species, different workshops and different species will marry eachother (which might also be cool).

Is this a good or bad idea?

I'd say bad. There would be no wars and only one caravan.

Yeah, I'd say that it's not a good idea at all. For courtesy sake, we should have different languages for each race, thus making it easier to know what race one is embarking as. I do agree that parts (read: most parts) of the mod are somewhat disorganized, which is part of the reason why I think we should start from scratch again.

I like the idea of starting over, and i like that idea. Now that i have a laptop that doesnt completely ruin everything in the house when i plug it in, i should be able to contribute a lot more.
