    Titans update 94157-PTE

    Community changes
    Added download & zip JS APIs.
    - The client can now download files from any valid URL.
    - Zip file contents can now be mounted transiently at any point in the file system.
    - See download.js and file.js for new APIs.
    Put a trailing slash on directory entries in the JS file list API.
    Convert mod system over to using the same file system everyone else uses.
    - Also introduces aliases to the file system in order to work around issues with the way mods were mounted.
    - Might have some small inconsistencies in mod behavior.
    A number of fixes to zip file mounting and mod interactions.
    - Primarily related to listing directories with memory files.
    - Mounting the same content is no longer a no-op.
    - Added api.content.remount(), which is necessary after changing mods.
    Auto-activate download redirects.
    - A download url will get a different result from Coherent, meaning it won't find an active download.
    - Auto-starts the download with the default filename. (Which is sub-optimal, but there isn't a reliable way of detecting the redirect.)
    Icon atlases now refresh when memory files are mounted
    -Allows shadowing from server mods
    -Also allows changing them at runtime
    -Does not support changing icon altas indices after creating a client world
    Icon atlases now have access to the client engne APIs
    - Primarily for the memory API
    Part 1 of in-memory shader mod support.
    - Includes hypothetical memory mounted file shader reload support for OSX/linux.
    - Doesn't appear to dynamically load shaders based on reports from testing, but is significant enough for OSX/Linux that I would like to get it checked in so I can do other smaller work.
    - Also doesn't cause any extra crashing or bad behavior from what has been reported.
    Ensure the timestamp of memory mounted files doesn't match previously mounted files.
    - Prevents caches of rapidly re-mounted files from returning stale data.
    Make boot.json memory file friendly.
    Remote mounted mods now override file system aliases when they are mounted.
    Fixed the change watcher support.
    - Added some more characters to filter from download file names.
    Added "raw" mod info interface so mods can extra information to modinfo.json.
    - Includes deprecation of api.mods.getMountedMods() in favor of api.mods.getMounted(), which uses promises instead of a callback.

    The following changes contributed by JustinLove:

    Expose build bar spec id grid map for easier modding.
    Correct gamma in world hover information.
    Improve modability of build bar.
    - Expose object constructors so new instances can be made.
    - Save their arguments so new properties can be defined.
    - Expose grid dimensions and tab definitions.
    - Extract function for unit specs so it can be either replaced or called again.
    - Expose ammo build hover details.
    - Fix the build hover cost of nuke missiles for titans.
    Extract function so showing game over can be cleanly customized.
    Remove call to undefined api.camera.setPreviewLinkage.
    - Appears to have been a by-product of the pa-x1 branch integration.
    Fix depreciated getMountedMods to return same type as before.
    Convenience improvements to GW card access for mods.
    Use appropriate commander for spec tag
    - Can't really use spec tags without a tagged commander. Commander verification won't let them through. Having the server append the tag during finalization avoids having to think about it everywhere else.
    Prevent incorrectly broken promises when chaining.
    - If a promise gets eaten by merge it will never be resolved/rejected. If one of the previously bound handlers is called, pending != ok and it gets rejected though the handler being called is usually for resolve.
    Return content remount promise for completion tracking
    Make api.file.list reject missing directories instead of waiting for parse exception

    General bugfix/polish
    Upgrade FMOD to 4.44.60 and rebuilt banks with new version
    Tell windows laptops with AMD GPUs to use the discrete part
    Fix a client crash that occurs when a URL is requested with a trailing /
    Fix error logging for unknown error codes
    Planet description now includes metal spot, CSG, and landing zone counts
    Fix for mac build.
    - Define copy ctor/assign operator for ChangeWatcherList.
    Pop open store page instead of cart for Steam Titans upgrade.
    Print complete authenticateHelper failure information instead of [object Object].
    Fix alias search crash bug in WindowsFilesystem/StdioFilesystem::exists().
    Prevent negative output from dither in the HDR compose pass.
    -Hypothetically, this should fix a crash issue on some Intel 5xx GPU drivers.
    Fix for aliases not being converted to lowercase.

    By the way, for any Linux users wanting to try out this PTE, there is an issue with case-sensitivity for files in the media subdirectory that causes a crash on startup. For some reason the coui:// file system expects all file to be lower-case.

    A workaround is to make symlinks from any file with capitals to one that is all lowercase. Script to do that for you:
    Code:
    cd media
    find . -name "*[A-Z]*" -type f -exec sh -c 'ln -sf "`basename "$0"`" "`echo "$0" | tr [:upper:] [:lower:]`"' {} \;

    Feedback on mod list - Larger text and perhaps use of columns (with larger thumbnails).

    Also it needs al filters that have PAMM.
    A more niche reauest is to have a searcher for the authors, I know it already does that vut it would be clearer to everyone using it.

    Amazing stuff!!
    I don't think most people are aware of what a big impact something like a in game mod integration will have, long term, on the community. Have been using this in game mod manager last month or so and it really make it easy accessible for everyone. Thank you uber for letting mikeyh and wondible contribute. It calms me to know that the game is not at the end station yet. I know they have more plans and I am looking forward to seeing them integrated into the pa experience.

    Could .div-color-picker have it's fixed width and height removed or adjusted so that the colour containing box properly expands to fit in all the options please?

    @mikeyh did community mods the greater part of the rest. And everybody should thank @pinbender for going above and beyond the call of duty to make all of that possible.

    Amazing! I'm looking forward to see what the community is allowed to contribute in the long run!

    My only suggestion is one that has been standing for a while:
    Also include the Team Colored chat mod to easily see from which team the player talking is :)


    Also, aren't many of the mods outdated nowadays? Or has somebody gone through all the mods to disable the outdated ones?

    A few mod things that might of interest beyond me and mikey

    Server-only icon updates (added units etc) are now trivial. Icon Reloader and Icon Extensions are obsolete.

    Build bar is much more accessible via virtual shared_build scene. HodgePodge can still be used to negotiate for positions, but making composable changes yourself is way more tractible. Also hook for nuke build info.

    Army spec tags can be used in regular games with additional UI mod support, although reconnects are awkward. This is the mechanism galactic war uses to have different stats and units for the player and enemy.

    I added some methods to GW Dealer and the GW start scene to streamline card mods. This should reduce the overhead of a start card mod to (gw_start, gw_play)

    Code:
    requireGW(['pages/gw_start/gw_dealer'], function(GWDealer) {
      if (model.startCards) {
        model.addStartCards(['gwc_start_ubercannon'])
      }
    
      GWDealer.addStartCards(['gwc_start_ubercannon'])
    })

    Polish bug. Poor Nefilpetou is missing its icon:
    nefelpitou.jpg
    The same is true for enderstryke71.

    This is not a new bug, but since we are doing PTE's again... :)
