I’ve Gotta Stop Playing with These FISH!

They aren’t even what I’m planning to put in the game. These fish are placeholders based on a simple scribble.

It took me way too much time to figure out how to select an isometric tile with the mouse coordinates. Thanks charlie for the suggested reading, I must have read a half-dozen tutorials and it looks like I do iso differently than half of the people who wrote articles. Sines, cosines? What? The math turned out to be pretty simple, and then I had to align the odd alternate tile because the mouse was only picking one half of the map. Grr. It’s working fine now, everything can be selected intuitively. Gameplay will be next, and finish the control scheme/creature attributes. That should be easy.

So, here I am, playing with fish, wasting valuable time. I got frustrated, and I’ll get over it. This game is going to rock! And there’s a little more than one day left to complete it. I can do this. Just hit a roadblock, it’s behind me.
