Development icon 7DRL Status Report

See pic: here

The development of the JS version is on going. About 2 and a half (full) days have passed and I’m making progress. I had forgotten how complex the universe generation in the old FreeBASIC version is and as such porting it has been exhaustive. I’m on the side of victory though, as I now have mostly working galaxy, starmap and solar system generators, and the basis of planet generator in place. What remains in the universe side is space stations, most of the planet aerial views as well as surface detail level.

In order to keep myself entertained (because the porting work is not always so fun), I have implemented some gameplay elements and a user interface. So almost everything you see in the picture above is actually functional (not a mock-up), and the ship can run out of energy, for example. There is even more features under several animated submenus that are closed in the image. However, it is not yet polished and will receive tweaks and additions.

Apart from finishing the universe, big features I still need to implement include: enemies and NPCs, homing torpedos and combat in general, economy (ship upgrade shopping, resource/”item” gathering and possibly trading) as well as the main quest.

Yes! It's back! Do you plan on continuing the project as a multi-player game?

Have you thought of seeking funding through KickStarter?

@Jeremy: I have some plans, namely using Node.js for the server and Socket.io for communication, but that\\\'s not in the near future and at least this 7drl version is turn-based.

@Ron Miller: AFAIK, KickStarter requires me have a U.S. bank account and address - I live in Europe.

ï» Hockey exercises are important to anyone's hockey vocation Not only they are very common they are extremely costly too
ï» Online retailers are able to move greater numbers of designer t-shirts and are thus able to offer them at much lower pricesThe vendor may tell you that the reason for the bargain price is that they received a great deal on overstocked merchandise or they were lucky enough to buy out the stock of a going-out-of-business retailer

Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I'm very glad to see such great information being shared freely out there.
