Death to Box Selection

Lab Notes - Mar 20, 2016

Ok good so now that you’ve hopefully been click-baited into here by the title, let’s answer some questions right up front. What is box selection and why does Ulf think it’s time to put it down? What would take its place?

Well, first off, when we’re talking about box selection from here on in, what I’m referring to specifically is the de facto method for selecting multiple units in PC real time strategy games. To wit: left-clicking and dragging to define the opposing¬†corners of a rectangle, then, upon releasing the left-mouse button, finding and selecting any units within the projected area of said rectangle.

“I know what box selection is you dingus” you are saying, “because I am reading this on my computer and I can tab over to my desktop and do it right now.” You are right! (unless you are reading this on mobile, in which case you are lying) (more…)

Greetings¬†everyone! Apologies for the state of things, but welcome nonetheless. I’m still scuttling about under the hood here and fiddling with this or that there, but pretty soon we’ll have made this house a home…page. Stay tuned over the next week and keep checking in – I’m planning on having new content uploaded daily until we’re fully armed and operational.

And before I forget to properly introduce it myself, say hello to The Art of The Ulf, my personal portfolio and blog space.
