Quote from: wlindley on February 21, 2011, 01:49:41 PMI have tried several times to start a Pak128.USA but the size of the task has overwhelmed me. Ideally I would like to start with Pak128.Britain and remove most everything, to build up again.
Quote from: balloonhead66 on February 21, 2011, 05:30:38 PMOK, TileCutter has been mentioned a few times, what is it?
Quote from: wlindley on February 21, 2011, 01:49:41 PMThe requirement to manually re-run TileCutter has to go; makeobj needs to have all that logic in it, so the .dat designer can write it all in once, and the process can be entirely automated.
Quote from: wlindley on February 21, 2011, 03:01:47 PMAs for TileCutter -- the various pakset "sources" have png's that are already cut -- which are intermediate files. These are not the real source files, and would have to be "un-tile-cut" to edit them. Indeed many of the pngs come from Blender files, for which none of the paksets give the real source. This makes editing the actual pakset just about impossible. The proper way to create a pakset would be to have the Blender sources automatically compiled to the pakfile, eliminating all manual intervention. Otherwise we have the impossibilites of handcrafting that make pakset maintenance just about impossible today.

Quote from: paco_m on February 21, 2011, 11:30:27 PMGood question Actually the openpak nightlies you can download from the nightly builds contains only graphics of authors that agreed to make them opensource and they already offered the complete sources for it in the pak128 forum for download - search for it or ask VS; as far as I know it is just a question of not automated uploads of the sources that it isn't as accessible as pak64 sources at the moment
Quote from: balloonhead66 on February 22, 2011, 12:01:48 AMso you mean like simupakopen128-1150.zip from the nightly page? How long would it take for the entire thing to go open?
