Player shadow, templates almost fully integrated

Posted by pentaphobe

There's actually very little to show in this video - rooms are now fully created by template, as are lights and the majority of entities.

The next hour or so (not counting the imminent coffee-making procedure) should show the point of my slightly less exciting looking work as we'll have proper combat and behaviour along with everything being templated.

Posted by pentaphobe

Really minimal visual updates so far as I've only been awake for 45mins, but I added camera locking and some simple GUI stuff while my coffee went cold beside me.

Shadows work

Technically this is from a couple of days ago, but I'm slowly moving some of the progress report stuff over to the blog.

Within a couple of days we should reach parity, at which point I'll fix the dates on these posts.



Currently implementing a definition-based map generator

Posted by pentaphobe

it's in very early stages at the moment (ie. it literally just worked for the first time ever right now) but this is a simple map generator using the KSON definition interpreter (KSON is basically JSON but with a few domain-specific quirks like you can define a range for a randomly generated parameter by surrounding it with angle brackets, and a few other tweaks)


An early video of the lighting in our prototype engine

Just a quick screencap from a week or two ago which shows the initial lighting model in our prototype.

(This is really just a test of the automatic video embedding plugin)

Not sure if this blog is going to be appropriate - but it seems worth a try.

Hopefully this can be a good place for less structured assorted thoughts.
