A global variable is just one that anything (in the game) can access - it's got global scope in the game. It also stays accessible until it's set to null, so if you use generic names that someone else may use you can run into problems. So if you define a global variable in, say, an actor (e.g. MyActor = self;) then you can call MyActor from any scene or object, etc. until you quit the game (after which you'd have to redefine it).
A global table is just a table that's global - if you get tables, you get global tables :)

Feel free to pm me if you want some better help, I'll happily try to give it but I don't wanna get too off topic here.

Well thanks to me we have failed spectacularly.

Long story short, still love this game! Cortex Command doesn't have a huge following but those of us who have stuck with it seem pretty dedicated.

I love this game so much, The only problem is thee... AI.
( why cant they just add a PROPER patrol mode , and atleast put AI-modes on cargo screen like "AI-SENTRY" or "AI-ROAM" <= roam around the battlefield and kill peeps , on the cargo screen like set the AI there while your making your loadouts. )

I still want to polish up cc metagame and add the workshop integration.. eventually release the source too so people can poke around with it themselves

I've been playing CC since I was a teenager, and I plan to keep playing it for as long as I have a computer that can run it.

I have wondered many times about how it makes it's physics magic, and was very excited to watch you code on those streams you published. The day you release the source code I will be a very happy man. But as long as you have awesomeness to add and release, I'm right behind you.
