Syntax exists for a reason - to make people's (and machines') lives easier. The fact that FTL* is very liberal when it comes to errors doesn't mean that you can ignore them once you've been made aware of them.

As Vhati says, it breaks tools that expect files to follow a certain pattern, and for example, such a ship wouldn't load 100% properly in Superluminal, either (it'd be missing bits of data, which might lead to a crash in extreme cases) - and it's not my job to account for flat-out wrong format.

Hm, recently I've read somewhere that XML was created with high error tolerance in mind... Guess that source was blatantly wrong, or I mixed it up with another format. Thank you for correcting me, either way

XML is absolutely not liberal when it comes to errors, from the point of view of XML, this file is invalid, period. FTL is the program that is being very liberal here, it ignores many errors in the XML files.

@vhati:

I copied most of the stuff from the original blueprints.xml, I think the developers might have done that :lol:

Yeah, that's the source of most mods' typos.

Looks like he was too busy writing a post about "Keeping the community informed" to complain that modders didn't know what he knew and that there's a short list of veterans who have to explain things; a list which didn't include him. :lol:

I hunted around the forum(s), but couldn't find any mention of zergs, fast boarders, or even 5 weapon slots.


The Asteroid Storm bug was reported here, btw.

If the asteroid bug is fixed in 2.0, why are some of the events still rewritten to avoid the asteroid fields?
