Faster but is it efficient?

October 29th, 2008 No comments

I’ve refined the actual local map generation code but unfortunately the way we’re outputting it doesn’t seem very clean. Sure, it loads faster but it just looks plain messy and I’m worried to hell about future memory leaks.

Assets and Targets

August 23rd, 2008 No comments

So I’ve got the new session system mapped out and I’ll start working on it this weekend. Tomorrow is good ole Nick’s birthday shindig. I’ve got to make him a card or something.

Anyway, it looks like I might get an early alpha up and running soon. Though right now it’s pretty much just “SPACE EXPLORER.” By that I mean that nothing is running but movement and exploration. Combat isn’t up or even started yet and there are only 5 types of ships in the database.

I need ship and weapon names.

Local Maps and Exploration

I’ve got movement and exploration working now. I don’t like the memory usage right now but at least I’ve got something in working order.

Blue is unexplored, the space background is explored, the green is where you are, and the yellow outline is where you can go immediately.

So I’m watching a movie staring the Beatles on A Channel. What the hell.

Random Map, Random Progress

So I got the random map algorithm working now. Not smooth yet but it generates perfect mazes at least.

I’m still working out how to save the exits. It’s either going into one field or separated into up,down,etc or by north,south,etc.

Great Success

I got the algorithm working! We now have plot course. Combat and trading are in the works next.
