Jumpstarter, Day 4

So today I had very little time to get things done, compared to the rest of the week so far.  I managed to get unit production up and running without much trouble, though, and also implemented planet capturing.  That means that the fundamental ingredients of the RTS game here – unit command, territory control and economic management – are in!  Yay!

Unfortunately, I am going to bed tonight with an unsolved crash related to particle effects.  Hopefully my fresher eyes tomorrow morning will help solve that.  Afterwards, there is some tweaking to be done, particularly to the interface, but the last major feature to add is enemy AI.  I hope to get basic enemy AI implemented tomorrow, as well as interface fixes and improvements; and I hope to get complete AI and basic sound implemented by Saturday night.  Sunday, then, will be a day for adding fun extra features, if all goes well.

I’m really enjoying the #7DRTS so far, but it is a definitely a bit exhausting, and I look forward to a code detox once this is over.  At that point, I think I’ll sit down and play Shadowrun Returns.
