BYOND Sucks #3
The biggest reason BYOND fails: Its developers are a terrible cycle of people who don't know what they're doing, trying to tell other people the right way to do things.
Check out this post made yesterday. Its a simple request for a view() that ignores lighting. The post has several replies from top... devs around the site, including Lummox, the person in charge of, not only developing the BYOND software/website/everything, but also the language itself. They all respond wrong, drastically wrong, which has degraded the conversation into a trollfest, as happens with 99% of BYOND posts, because of top... community members like these ones. Not only have they responded wrong in actual response form, but an (incompetent) admin has marked the feature as "redundant", because somebody else posted a DM snippet to manually reproduce the effect - in which case, practically every feature ever requested is redundant.
range proc: This instruction is identical to view() except visibility is ignored. All objects are included in the list whether they are visible or not.
Good day, sirs!
