I use this as a template for ground plugins.

Code: Select all

  ...
  "type":"ground",
  "border frames":[{"bmp":"frame.png","w":32,"h":15, "count":16, "handle y":8}],
  "edge border frames":[{"h":16,"handle x":0,"handle y":3,"w":32,"x":0,"y":320}],
  "edge frames":[{"count":12,"h":48,"w":16,"x":0,"y":96}],
  ...

How to Make train Plugin(By: Kiki012)
viewtopic.php?f=35&t=10975
That's not a tutorial, there's no teaching aspect in there.

That's like me saying this is how you do derivatives:

\(\frac{\mathrm{d} }{\mathrm{d} x} tan(sin(x^2)) = sec^2(sin(x^2)) \cdot cos(x^2) \cdot 2x\)

Instead it should have some teaching aspects such as:

First understand the power rule.

\(\frac{\mathrm{d} }{\mathrm{d} x} x^n = nx^{n - 1}\)

Then learn how to differentiate trig functions.

\(\frac{\mathrm{d} }{\mathrm{d} x} tan(x) = sec^2(x)\)

\(\frac{\mathrm{d} }{\mathrm{d} x} sin(x) = cos(x)\)

Then, use the chain rule (differentiate from outside to inside):

\(\therefore\frac{\mathrm{d} }{\mathrm{d} x} tan(sin(x^2)) = sec^2(sin(x^2)) \cdot cos(x^2) \cdot 2x\)

why math? idk just felt like it. :)
