    @SledDriver thy dont soun very rudely or negative.. i just exactly used the "why dont you paint your builds and why your builds are so smooth" in different way to make them think that it was actually not staged and serious..
    "Why SledDrivers Builds are so blank and why it is so blacc refers to why dont you pain your builds and the kiddie slide shape refers to the smoothness of your builds the "slide" was th one that refers the sentence into the smoothness of your build since a good quality slides is smooth..

    Really? So when you say "why are they shaped like a kiddie's slide" you're actually asking me why my builds are of such high quality? In a forum post titled "Criticism of SledDriver's Builds"? Not in the habit of thinking before you say something, are you?

    You asked the exact questions I specifically told you not to ask. If you were being honest, you'd have commented on one of my builds, not in the forum -- with your buddies immediately posting deliberately incendiary comments like "lack of originality since his first build." You really thought I'd fall for that, SnarkFannyPoo?

    Since you and your friends are clearly incapable of figuring this out on your own, here's a helpful idea that will probably blow your tiny minds: before you set out to try to manipulate someone, make sure they're dumber than you are.

    @0n33 Also keep in mind that when people on this site say that I "can't take criticism", what they really mean is that I don't take their suggestions on board, thereby hurting their precious little egos.

    Hey SledDriver.. i was dared to criticize your builds.. please dont take anything too seriously.. ill criticize them once you have read this.. and also once you accepted
    my permission to criticize them..

    When I respond negatively to criticism, it's because it was dumb, or it was said rudely. So if you can avoid those two mistakes, feel free. It would also save time if you could avoid criticizing things that are deliberate choices, e.g. "lol why don't you paint your builds" or "why are your builds so smooth" etc.

    @SledDriver I hope you don't mind me asking, but, How did the SSG work? I'm thinking about scripting my own, if that is alright with you.

    "If you are walking through the desert, carrying a pick and shovel, and if you come upon an old man scrabbling away at the hard, rocky ground in an attempt to dig a hole, and if you show him your pick and shovel, tools that are new to him, and if you then demonstrate your ability to dig a larger hole in a few minutes, using your tools, than he has been able to do with his bare hands after years of continuous digging, you would then probably expect him to look upon you as his savior; but, in fact, you would probably be lucky to escape with your life, the old man almost certainly would try to beat you to death with your own tools.

    "But if you did escape alive, leaving your tools behind, and returned to the same spot years later, you could reasonably expect to find the old man still there, still scrabbling away with his bare hands, while your tools remained in plain sight, ignored and rusting away. Such is human nature; so be it."

    @SledDriver
    That is just sad, a wonderful free tool for builds being offered and it gets rejected by stupid 'purists'. People calling this cheating is honestly insulting given the clear effort put into creating a program with results as fantastic as those of your builds.

    I may not have mastered using the generator, but comparing it to XML modding they both clearly involve handling numbers and knowing how to use them. XML modding is so widely accepted yet can make the game itself call you a cheater (through achievement) yet when someone makes a client which lets you make a build straight out of blender and people call it cheating. Dunno about the rest of you but it sounds like petty jealousy and/or double standards to me.

    Looking at your builds they're clearly visually well designed and not built off taking shortcuts, which to me nullifies only kind of excuse a fool who whines 'cheater!' could even conceive.

    If this is less used for its potential and more derided based on petty 'cheating' excuses then perhaps this is too good for the "community". As if simpleplanes is some hardcore game with rules on what makes you good (not like the effort and skill of most builds posted even reflects that mentality). That in mind I would certainly encourage you to develop this thing offsite and see to it having its own game to shine on.

    That game could possibly surpass the build capabilities of SP, based on your builds, and hopefully build a community that explores its potential, instead of being panned by jealous whiners.

    @WarHawk95 Well, that's the first time I've heard someone say that. But you understand that there's no point in releasing the tool just for a few people -- the hate currently directed solely at me would then just get spread to include them. The "community" has taken its stance -- until that changes, there's no point releasing the script.

    @SledDriver i don't see it as cheating, I see the SSG the same way as XML modding. As a tool. A wonderful tool that allows us to build better planes.
    And if I can't "figure out how to use" the SSG it's just because of the people who can teach me how to use it but who don't want to.

    @ChallengerHellcat Oh, plenty of people would love to use it, they just a) couldn't figure out how to use it, and b) for many of them, having previously taken the stance that using a script is "cheating," they'd look pretty silly if they now used it themselves.

    I want to use it, WarHawk95 wants to use it, and that is all the people that I see would like to use it. And maybe a couple others, of course. @SledDriver

    So you decide to use it for your own profit now that barely anyone wants to use it? @SledDriver

    @WarHawk95 Sorry, that option is no longer available. I've decided my work is valuable enough that if I release it, it will be in my own game, or licensed to some game developer.

    @SledDriver anyway, could you teach me how to use the SSG ? I would upgrade my building skills
