Well, "factor" says what it does. "property" doesn't. And I do still want to keep fixed factors, hence "factor" and "factor-prop". It's a matter of consistency. I would have to explain in the documentation why it's (red|green|blue|offset)[-prop], but just "factor" (fixed factor) and "property" (variable factor). And, frankly, I couldn't explain it. There's no apparent reason. What makes a multiplicator so special that it has to be treated different from an offset? (Consistency with other animations is certainly desirable, but not if it seems unnatural.) m. _______________________________________________ Flightgear-devel mailing list Flightgearfirstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.flightgear.org/mailman/listinfo/flightgear-devel 2f585eeea02e2c79d7b1d8c4963bae2d
