    • The version is 0.62.142080 and works fine here. 178.7MB download.
    • New experimental version (23/09/2017) won’t open for me. Complains about how it can’t create the enfusion engine. No idea of the version number but it was released about 30 minutes ago. 
    • Play nice or Ill get my spoon out. Behave!

    • Did @eugenharton end up commenting on this?
    • dont get stroppy, lad..  be careful waving your tomahawk close to your brain. You are being unpleasant and it is unnecessary. "Just because a culture had a long knife as a multi-purpose tool and weapon, doesn't mean they are the same thing as a modern machete." = You mean that what YOU decide to call a "machete" is a "machete" and what the guy with the Machete calls it doesn't matter to you, a damn... so how can you be wrong? Please don't start telling me about the different names for very similar devices created with the SAME purpose, used world wide, or else I'll start telling you all the different names for WHEELS since the dawn of time, as if that proves they are ALL not the same thing.
      I'm talking about Use and Survival and Melee, not about cultural historical museum artifacts.. TODAY << In the English-speaking Caribbean, for instance in Jamaica, Barbados, Guyana, and Grenada and in Trinidad and Tobago, the term cutlass is used for these agricultural tools.>>   Didn't I EXPLAIN that. ? Damn; wasting my time; right?   Go LOOK at the Beagnoth Seax and tell me it is NOT a machete.. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seax_of_Beagnoth   - made for display and too fancy for daily use, and specialised for war, but still a single-edged heavy-backed curved  one-handed cutting-tool with the blade weight deliberately well forward (hence the broken back, still a common distinctive feature, serving the same mechanical purpose. Give it what name you like - For instance, you know "tomahawk" is  Powhatan for "cutting tool" ie it means LITERALLY a "single-handed AXE" ... tomahawk is a non-translation of the English "HAND AXE" ; so just mentally translate into "USE"  and don't get too hot about words, think about USE.
      A one handed axe from DayZ (find them in sheds) is a tomahawk.. here it takes our standard English word for the factory made object. I could go on in detail  but I'll bore you.
      USE is what counts. duh .. "machete" is a NAME for a long heavy single bladed knife-like instrument 12-18-24+ inches long, with the point of balance forward such as a SEAX or a DAO or a CUTLASS... what YOU call a machete, the people who USE them every day in the kitchen and at Work and in War call a CUTLASS... that is the bloody name they give it... not my idea ok?  

      eg, A long-shafted two-handed short-bladed axe - or "WEDGE" - as they are called in various places on the planet by people who really use them, was devised specifically for LUMBER..  (Lumber is only a word in n America; it's real NAME is "timber".. are you following this at all?)
      ie. a "woodcutters axe" is not for survival or field work or kitchen work or gutting game or fighting or building temporary shelter or digging furrows or working crops So lets drop the "you have no idea" cr@p and you be nice now & end your unnecessary trash. I was aiming to be polite and informative. Guess i missed the headshot. My aim is to be helpful, not to be dissed by an ill informed and thoughtless ga-ga pseudo-pedant. Go cut down a good growth of bamboo with your tomahawk. Try it. I REALLY have a heavy bladed machete - I call it "a machete" - and I can in fact cut down a medium size pine with it. If I need to, if I came out of the holocaust without my chainsaw.  I can build a damn canoe too - but I rarely have any reason to do either  - because what the F would I want to do that for?  I'm really not a homesteader.  You carry a two-handed saw in your kit, or is it all "tomahawk"? Yes a Parang is a Machete.  No a modern Western kitchen knife is not a machete. ... any other dumb questions?
      Before you ask, the US Army is NOT great at making machetes or entrenching tools, and the Brit Army has never been good at wooden camel saddles .. but who give a screw about that?  it doesn't mean these things don't exist. Some folk - worldwide and through history -  know how they work and what they are used for.   thanx
