So, I'm starting a branch of T2 master (current cpp version) for the complete removal of Alchemists and their craft.
a) They're very unbalanced etc. etc. etc.
b) I'm tired of seeing essences everywhere as a non-Alchemist
c) I would like to do something
to reduce the size of the C++ code base, since it still takes ~5 times longer to compile than the pure C version
Hopefully I will have a push request ready by the end of the day... Just a heads up for @AnonymousHero, and anyone else still involved in T2 development. If you have any advice/suggestions feel free to say.
Edit: OMG. cmd7.cc is full of huge alchemy related functions. So much code!
