I finally broke 105,000 SIS sometime last week. I did plan to do a video and ‘ooo’ moment, but sadly time is not with me at present. However, it is a milestone event, and it has led to a number… Read More »

Egads… during my Great Journey, I got fed up of manually updating the hard coded ‘Credit’ total every time I relaunched the game… plus now I can save ‘favourite waypoints’ to navigate directly between trading hotspots… so these two lines… Read More »

12,000 SIS A tenfold increase in the original 1,200. Some way off the intended 100,000 but all the more remarakable for being possible in the first place! The most recent journeys have led to the following changes; Sortable Trade Prices… Read More »

Having rectified the ‘oops up’ from Part One, and made a great many tweaks, improvements and changes since then, it’s time for Part Two, and let this part be slightly more successful! Given the spirit of things was to partake… Read More »

Phew! Much improved since the post of a few days ago – thankfully! I’ve been out of the picture for about 3 weeks – off work, the lot – been quite the ‘adventure’ but fortunately I’m back on track it seems…. Read More »

By Mak, November 15, 2013 Comments Off on Weekly Update : Context Design, Dev

This week has seen a fair amount of context switching as I started on the vessel/NPC behaviours. I reconsidered the initial state machine design I had in mind after some ‘paper walkthroughs’ which showed it wouldn’t worked as I hoped…. Read More »

Another ‘grey’ update – I’ve spent the last week (one working day spread over 5 days) creating ‘scene contexts’. The game universe has to be populated with a believable, generated ‘scene’ whenever you drop back into local space. So reaching… Read More »

By Mak, October 27, 2013 Comments Off on This little Commodity went to Market… Design, General, News

In the (surprisingly) consistent 2nd weekly progress update, I have spent the past week tinkering with the basic economy model I mentioned a while back. Ah, trading. Something so simple. Something so basic. Yet, strangely addictive… I’ve wired up the… Read More »
