Allow unlocking of tie length
« on: October 01, 2008, 09:38:11 AM »
When .fixang is negative it allows the bot to rotate at will without interference.
I propose that either .fixlen or .stifftie should produce the same effect w.r.t. length.

Sounds good to me.  There's a lot of history here though.  I know at one time anyway, some people felt strongly that hardened ties, once hardened, should not be able to be un-hardened.   As for me, I'm for this change.
Many beers....

Well, I guess they see things more from the standpoint of "this is how it makes sense for things to work" rather than "this will make our lives and the bots' lives easier".
I've noticed several debates here that can be divided between those camps.
