I started writing this as a pager message to Ter13, but decided that it was better suited as a forum post.
Ter13: Your development posts and answers to questions on these boards are much appreciated.
A good example is your post about tile-glide smoothing, which was a problem that NEStalgia had when it originally launched on Steam. Having grown so used to a bit of jittery movement on BYOND since 2001, it was something that never really occurred to me to try and address. Your tutorial was great because it A) Made me realize for the first time that a fix was even possible, and B) Helped me to understand and implement the fix really quickly.
Recently I've been delving into various BYOND functions and features that I've never had cause to use much before. Whenever I do a forum search for help on an unfamiliar subject, it almost always ends up being one of your posts that provides either the solution or a tidbit of knowledge that gives me an "aha!" moment and allows me to figure out the rest on my own.
I'm now at the point where I occasionally browse through your post history to see if I can learn something new (or even just how to improve something that I'm already doing).
So yeah - thank you very much, and keep the posts coming!
