This is an intentional gameplay restriction.
RE: "Sync from repository" button not doing anything on click
@marvintmb thank you for the report. We already aware of the issue and working on the fix.
RE: how to use life time?
@114514 As far as I can see, you settled at shard3 where CPU is always limited to 20 CPU. In order to use your additional CPU on other shards please assign it where you want it. You can do that either by
Game.cpu.setShardLimitsmethod or use the game UI.
RE: Visual Bug in Alpha Version of the New World Map
This is a known issue, but thank you for reporting it anyway.
RE: False TERRAIN_MASK_WALL where is ConstructedWall
Game.map.getRoomTerrain('W8N8').get(37,0) 1 Game.map.getRoomTerrain('W8N8').get(41,0) 0
If you have the same results, it's something wrong with your code. Otherwise, please report providing a full version of minimal reproducing code.
Migration from Slack to Discord
Hello everyone! We are happy to announce that we are going to migrate our official chat platform from Slack to Discord!
This is a quite big change for everyone, both community and us, and we want to explain the reasons behind this.
Discord is community oriented. After all these years with Slack we have clearly seen that communities are not their priority. Slack is a business app for teams, and it severely lacks many features like persistent chat history or moderation tools. Discord, in contrast, is designed from scratch for communities. They even have the Partner Program for best communities, and we hope to achieve this level with your support.
Screeps franchise now consists of two games. Arena is under active development right now, and this will be the second game in our franchise. However, we still want to have one community of Screeps players that includes both games. A new player should become a part of this community whatever game they play, and interact with players from the other game. And dedicating just one channel for Arena is not very fair, we love this game very much and want to give more living space to it. Discord has many features to create a complex and powerful structure and navigate users to correct places that would allow to cover both games and not split the community into two parts.
Discord has in-game integration features. With the Rich Presence API it is possible to show your in-game status in Discord. It could show what game you are playing and what part of the game is active right now (for example, which arena). It also allows to create interactive features such as share, invite, or observe games. With Arena all these features will be in high demand and seem perfectly logical, and Slack does not support any of it.
