    Oh hello forum! We merged a significant change to the developer set-up process this week. Thought it might be worth a post to give a heads-up to those of you who didn't hear about it on Discord. For quite a while now, the guides on how to set up IntelliJ IDEA for Terasology development have...

    Suggested Gameplay mode: Meta-Terasology Dungeons

    When Niruandaleth started posting these module dependency diagrams, I first thought "we should make an in-game renderer for these, so you can see them in 3-D!" At first I was thinking they'd be rendered medium size so you could look at the whole thing at once like we do here. The third...

The reason I bring it up here is that it's doing some noteworthy things in blending...

    Implementation gestalt-entity-system

    I came across this in the code: entityManager.getEntitiesWith(WorkstationComponent.class, BlockComponent.class) and it's flagged with the warning Unchecked generics array creation for varargs parameter even though the implementation PojoEntityManager.getEntitiesWith is marked with...
