@alre I can make an executable for you to test but I think it would be more worthwile to understand why SVN doesn't compile for you.

idk how to test this. do I need to be able to compile stuff? because I'm not.

@marder you can absolutely take the matter in your hands if you want. on my part, I don't intend to work on this anymore.

That's a bit of a strawman argument, because StarCraft has it :P

the units on which acceleration looks better are rams. I don't know if it really makes sense to have acceleration in a game applied to rams, as they are usually displayed moving steadily, but some acceleration does look nice on them.

to me, unit motion actually seems more realistic without acceleration. of course another reason to not include it would be avoiding yet another game balance rework. maybe (just maybe) this feature could be a starting point for obtaining ships that realistically move on water, and horses that change gait, however at the moment it looks quite bad to me, for almost all units. I can't find template parameters that make the acceleration look worth it. AoE doesn't use unit acceleration, and that's for a reason.

alre added a comment to D4295: Ignore formation selection when clicking the icon..

I can't find the diff that introduced "current behaviour", so I'll comment here. In current SVN revision, the following are broken/impossible:

  • select a single unit from a formation
  • split a formation into groups using rectangle selection
  • select wounded units from a formation using O + rectangle selection

  1. The column thing is nice, but they move into it too quick, maybe increasing the distance for that satisfies both camps?

Thanks for the patch: here is some quick review, to help you improve the patch:

Please add extra context (as stan requests), this will easy reviewing a lot.

Please add yourself to the programming.json, that way you will be in the credits.

As I see it, this patch does two things:

  1. It computes new positions when big turns and sets the rotation based on the position, instead of unit rotation.
  2. It removes the column switch behaviour.
  1. This sounds like a good idea, though it needs to be configurable what "sharp" means (it might differ from shape to shape)
  2. There surely was a good reason to add it back in the days (https://wildfiregames.com/forum/topic/13726-formations/, #13), not sure if we need to remove this.

Please try to limit the amount of unnecessary changed (moving function around and stuff). Smaller patch => quicker review
