If you don't need it, why do you want to calculate it?

comment Multiple lua scripts using newthread
FYI: You don't need to "get a reference" to that thread. You simply need to permanently store it somewhere in the Lua system. After calling that function, it's pushed on top of the stack, which will be emptied eventually. The registry is one place to store it, but there are other places too. It didn't manifest in the other case because garbage collection happens whenever and however Lua wants it to.

comment What is Vulkan and how does it differ from OpenGL?
"Khronos recently announced the release of the all-new Vulkan API" Um, not as of Aug 18 it hasn't. It has not been "released" by any definition of that term. It's Dec 8 now, and it still hasn't been released.

But they are not designed; they're accidental. To put it a different way, construction workers don't become architects simply because their work can affect the architect's design.

A simple example of how a programmer decides to implement random affecting the game design. Except that it's not. The choice of which algorithm to use to pick the next piece is a design choice, which was made by the game's designer. That is, a programmer did not arbitrarily decide, "hey, I'm going to change how Tetris picks the next piece." A game designer looked at what a pure RNG provided, didn't like it, came up with a solution, then told the programmer to implement it.
