Decimals or Degrees for coordinates?

Postby Coiler12 » Mon Dec 22, 2014 1:06 pm

So, Command Lua-ers, do you use decimals or degrees more often for coordinates?

I would strongly recommend decimal format, because it's easier for other Lua scripts to understand - parsing DMS notation is kind of difficult. DMS should be used only if you're not working with a library and have source data in DMS format - otherwise, use decimals.

Thanks. I use decimals as my first choice too.
