New board for script development (bugs and extension requests)
« on: September 11, 2016, 04:12:22 PM »
I would like to create a sub-board

Script Development

in the development section of the forum. There are currently some requests/reports going on, which would be easier to follow if there is a dedicated board.

The purpose would be (a) bug reporting of scripting, (b) extension requests, and (c) scripting help requests.

Any comments on this?

Seems like a reasonable suggestion

It is not clear to me if this is for development of and bugs in scripts, or development of and bugs in script related code in Simutrans. So far, I've mostly seen the latter, while the former is what I would find disturbing as a regular developer.

@Ters It is often not so easy to distinguish between bugs in scripts or bugs in the code, in particular for the scripter, who has not much knowledge about the program source code.
It is not clear to me if this is for development of and bugs in scripts, or development of and bugs in script related code in Simutrans. So far, I've mostly seen the latter, while the former is what I would find disturbing as a regular developer.
This is also an argument to split the scripting-related reports into an own board. No matter whether they are bugs of scripts or bugs of the code.

I would like to have it directly under 'Development'. Any objections?

Quite the opposite. That means that the icon for patches and projects won't be affected by it.
