There is as much chance of there being a final build of Vangard as there is of getting the final build of Linux! Smiley

Today I set up Amazon SES and Sendy on Puppygames as we prepare to move our mailing list from YMLP over to our own Sendy based solution. We've got 100k double-opt-in subscribers on our mailing list. It'll now cost a couple of bucks to do a mail shot instead of a few hundred with YMLP.

Sendy is... difficult to set up. Amazon stuff is... also difficult.

If a tile is (0,0) for top left and (32,32) for bottom right, and you only have straight slopes and different heights of platform to consider then all you need are two value for height-right and height-left (hr and hl for short). For a tile that fully occupies it's space, hr and hl equal 0. for a tile that fill the bottom half of the space hr and hl are 16. For a slope hr might be 0 and hl might be 32.

Yes, eventually. Not only roads between villages but also little rivers too and bridges. However this needs to be done with path finding logic that doesn't consume the CPU budget.

For now I have to focus on sound and town generation some more (currently there are only two building types, and we can't have the chieftains living in hovels). Also I need to make the paths prettier at some point.

Also working on combat in my lunch breaks and height map generation intermittently, currently the game has no height map but one is required as a friend is looking at adding a 3D front end on Vangard. With another project contributor I also have to work more on documentation and coordination and separation of concerns.

I'm also haunted by the need to make economics more realistic, add in trading between towns  so they are not necessarily self-sufficient, add in the ability for towns to grow and shrink in size...

@J0, I did quite a bit of work to make my path logic more believable after your WIDT feedback. I generate several possible street grids, pick the best based on a scoring system, then add in shortcuts based on a shortcut-finding algorithm, and then minimize the tree again - so the shortcuts replace any initial unlikely paths. A better road-generation algo was suggested to me on the WIDT thread, but it was less effort to initially hack around with what I already had.

It's all a bit overwhelming, but I'm pleased that I have got crafting working for both AIs and human players. I also have made the world resizable so it can run on weaker systems now. And I did some analysis of frame timings with has improved game smoothness. Under the hood I have added a lot of integrity checks to the game assets, so all the references between skills and careers and items and creatures and plants etc are guaranteed to be valid... And that enabled me to get rid of all the hard coding and move all aspects of game content into declarative asset files. So I am making progress, but don't expect the final version before Half Life III comes out Smiley

I think detecting the tile I'm on and modifying player movement regardless be simplest for my sort of game.

Thanks for the link btw :-)

ndnwarrior15 - do you have slopes in your game?

Just listened to an iteresting discussion on zeno paradoxes.

Starts after 2 mins.

Edit: should work now

Are there going to be roads between towns?
