Ditch UnitAI timer by setting rotation in cmpResourceGatherer (= ugly).

Perhaps I used the wrong parent, but it is unpacked in the game ;) (And can't be packed.)

why don't unpack it and keep it unpacked?
you would not pack and unpack siege on ship all the time

I did a double-check and the pointer approach was indeed safe, but it did rely on somewhat undocumented behaviour in other code. To make things safer, this introduces a cheap unique ID for animations instead (no thread-safe atm).

They're not, & you're correct. Though having them in a separate script interface still remains useful as it avoids polluting the global scope somewhat.

borg- added a comment to D3738: [gameplay] Athen elite hoplite can promote to champion hoplite.

Honestly, while Athenian hoplites weren't bad soldiers (probably pretty decent for their time), they didn't fare very well when matched against other Greek hoplites from Thebes or Sparta. I'd rather this "Fourth Rank" idea go to the Roman Swordsman. The fourth rank being either the Extraordinarius, or (much cooler) a new Republican Centurion unit.

Stan added a comment to D3603: Water-Patch.

@nani and @gameboy Friends, I totally agree it's a pity to have done so much work on these shaders and let it all go to dust; but it's really pointless to try to continue with it, with all the hate I got, and the monkey-wrenching. The fact is my contributions are not wanted. Period. If you look at the comments on this patch, back to the beginning, note what I'm being asked for: separate patches for each feature... !!! Like, how much time was I supposed to spend on this? It would take me weeks of work to separate this into 3 separate shaders, individually debugged and diffed. It's insane.
