Minimize Name Changes overall
I notice that there are a lot of name changes lately and its quite annoying if you have a project with couple of thousands of lines which use lets say input and diri/anglei etc and suddenly its changed to move, turn etc.

You then have to go around and refract everything once every week or two. I generally get around 100-200 compile errors because of this. So please can you keep the unnecessary name changes to a minimum, there is noneed to fix something that isn't broken.

Yea got the same problems.. the project is getting bigger and bigger everyday and sometimes after a update i am busy for like 1/2 hours to get it compiled again.

There is always evil somewhere, you just have to look for it properly.

Its not that easy m8... sometimes functions change as well... so replace doesn't work then...

Most of the name changes make the engine easier to understand. While that is not needed for the experienced programmers for beginners (like me) an easier to read code makes a lot more sense.

Ctrl+F/Replace is very good method, but with options Match case, Match whole word or for example Replace ".dir" to ".angle" (dot). With that it won't change GetDirFun() to GetAngleFun(), but only player.dir to player.angle (for example)
