Calling It A Night

So I’ve spent the last 09hrs: 28min: 12sec at work on my MiniLD entry.

So far, so good – but it definitely needs a lot of work. I have some artwork done, a reasonable control scheme, and a number of reusable world-object classes for map creation. I still haven’t implemented all the textures that I have drawn, so please forgive the giant coloured-boxes that are meant to be trees, as well as the paper-white ground and no backdrop. These things are in the works. Oh, and there are some texture-splicing logic errors here and there – so things aren’t lining up all too well at the moment. Minor issues though.


After this, I next I need to focus on getting player/NPC interaction in place so that I can start implementing quests. Shouldn’t be too difficult – some simple x/y coordinate checks (to ensure the player is in range of the character), and some booleans to track quest progress. Hell, the code doesn’t have to be efficient after all! As long as it works I’m happy.

But that is a worry for later today. The sun is rearing its head, and my mind is numb. According to my trusty stop-watching-o-meter, I have a further 38.5 hours of time to work on my no-name-game. I just hope that I don’t waste too much time on sleep – I don’t want to hit the deadline with time to spare.

Off to bed with me. Happy coding everyone!
