Thanks to this week's contributors, @xMAC94x, @JakobDev, @James, @Sam, and @Tormod!
Last weekend, Veloren participated in Reddit's /r/place project. Veloren was able to get a spot on the map by allying with /r/Rust and building beside them. A template was created so that everyone in the area could know what colours to place, which made it easy to protect the area. It was a lot of fun, and we got a pretty great result eternalized in the final image (before the destruction of the whole map 😛).
If you missed it, be sure to check out Veloren's April Fools post!
Veloren Reading Club #7 by @aweinstock
This week, another Veloren Reading Club was held! The topic was profiling Veloren with the Tracy profiler.
As a supplement to the talk, here are some commands to follow along and try Tracy yourself:
Compiling and running Tracy:
git clone https://github.com/wolfpld/tracy cd tracy git checkout tags/v0.7.8 -b tags_v0.7.8 cd profiler/build/unix make ./Tracy-release
Compiling and running Veloren with Tracy support:
cargo run --features=tracy --bin veloren-server-cli cargo run --features=tracy --bin veloren-voxygen
Running Veloren's "swarm" client (requires running the server with --no-auth and making swarm0 an admin):
cargo run --features='bin_bot tick_network' --bin swarm
