All I saw in the topic was a block of scm code to swap in a healthy model when entering a sphere placed in a carwash. Last I checked, scm code and car health has f*ck all to do with the particle engine or the collisions detection system which causes cars to get clean or dirty. So even if the scm code did swap in a clean car somehow, the whole dirt system was inherently borked before the patch. Even if the code did clean the car, it's a far cry from a fix, as the cars still wouldn't get clean or dirty by normal means. So, yea, where am I wrong exactly?
And how exactly was this some personal attack against you Dem? You were talking about how useless the patch was before Ashdexx came in. All he did was come in and post that your claim it did nothing was "an ignorant thing to say". Not that you're ignorant, but that the statement was. As in, you know, ignoring things, like, say, the changelog full of stuff it fixes. You are the one who took it all personal and started ranting about your priviliges and whatnot. He even conceeded it's your buisness not to use the patch, but you still had to argue about how right you are. And how it's your right to argue your opinion. After page three, I missed stuff which got deleted, so I dunno what to say about it. Either way, you were the one who made a mountain out of a molehill because someone said you said something dumb. And now you're crying a freakin' river because someone took away a .gif image under your name on the intarweb because they got sick of you bitching about a bloody patch. Three words come to mind; walk it off.
Honestly, if we, the staff, were such the begrudged fascists you make us out to be, then why aren't we tripping over eachother to burn you alive for the countless times in this topic you've called us out for something you felt was a stupid/wrong thing to say? Could it be you're the one with the pent up contempt? Could it be you're the only one so soft and sensitive to get all bent out of shape over someone saying something you said was ignorant? Get over it. Get over yourself. If you want to be treated fairly, quit carrying on like you expect us to grovel at your feet. It's really hard to take a request to be treated like anyone else seriously when it's followed in the same breath by egomaniacal narcissism.
As for your claim in the PM that you'ld have +25 if you were interested. Bitch please. Aside from the two mod's who have +25, there are a grand total of four people who have that many stars. Sorry to burst your bubble, but you'll never contribute to the scene on the level that Steve has. Not even I could do that. I didn't see you withstanding a swarm of media and lawyers attacking you on our collective behalf like Patrick did. I didn't see you hardwiring a dualshock controller to a serial port to bruteforce *all* the cheats from the game like Edisoncarter. And you sure as f*ck aren't Odie. Yea, you're helpful and sh*t, and quite a proficient modder, but to casually say you could be on the level of Odie if you were "interested", and in a way implying it's somehow your right to be, well, it's just f*cking disgusting. Seriously dude. Don't ever speak to me again.
