Disabling Blob Shadows

Postby Jellyfunk » Wed Jun 03, 2015 4:16 pm

Regarding This answer in the Reddit:
"[Jens Restemeier] We're going to have both. Argument solved! Blob helps with platforming and dynamic will kill the framerate."

Please have an option to disable blob shadows. They are very unappealing to me.

Everyone wants their own custom game with sprinkles, optional soundtrack, optional 64 bit polygons, and a cherry. For the 3DS.

"Just a few lines of code".

As a programmer, if I had a nickel for every time I heard that I'd be a rich man.

You know nothing about how their code base is built or maintained so you absolutely can not make "just a few lines of code" statements. For all we know, their code is a bowl of spaghetti with every piece tied to another. It's probably not, but without being a member of the team that statement is impossible to make.

Final answer from our lovely administrator during Reddit Q&A

[Jens Restemeier] We're going to have both. Argument solved! Blob helps with platforming and dynamic will kill the framerate.

I wouldn't be against this option. But seriously: ANOTHER thread about blob shadows? Really? Makes me think of the time when Yooka's feet were a thing :roll:

I want an option to disable Yooka's feet...shadows

and I want to be able to milk cows, and raise crops 'n stuff, then turn them into 720 different species with IV's and EV's, they will have to carry guns In first person, ragdoll physics with a lot of blood. Game has to be moddable and I want a level editor to build worlds brick by brick, but not like minecraft. That's a lego rip-off. More like Eden. Oh, don't forget stealth gameplay. I want to be able to race a shiny cabbage with my lvl 80 stealth assassimato. Mini-games F*ck yeah, eat that. Chameleon simulator all the way. Don't forget base-management and turn-based strategy old-school 2.5D rpg tabletop mechanics. Would love to point and click my way through a legal procedure in a space game where you try to settle a new world while shouting OBJECTION all the time. In the end you didn't exist and the final boss will be the reflection of your soul. Then they will have to add in sudoku cryptology audio-based binary secrets that take years to solve. Only after solving the true ending will you be able to fly in planes and unlock the roulette machine.

And a playable penguin with a gambling addiction, with pants, holding an orange. That will teach you how to speak spanish while cooking several recipes based on actual japanese history. All in a visual novel.

With blob shadows.

Please keep the threads free from irrelevant discussion. Move your argument to a new thread, or use the PM service. It's there for a reason.

Difficulty of a change is relevant. Especially since the topic is "make this change for me". And again, unless you're in direct contact with the code base you can never make "this change is easy" statements. Assume it is complicated unless told otherwise.
