Starship Hull Generator Is Now Making Custom Config Files!

auto-generated-hull-shapes

YAY!

The starship hull generator code that takes a JSON config file and makes a hull out of it is now capable of creating a brand-new config file for the generated empires. That means the default 250 empires will have their own unique ships, no default/undefined shape. So, the next thing to do is take these configs and make similar versions for different classes. Then, followed by coding the actual shipyards in-game!

It took a while to detect/get rid of hull shapes that intersect themselves. But it is finally ready. I may add this into a new build of the Ship Flight testing program.

Starship Command 2 is Now in Progress

Or I should say it has been in progress for three months. I should update the site more often. So…

Currently, the empires (expansion, relations, wars, etc.), and markets are working and I plan to have an alpha build up in the next week. So stay tuned.

The power creator is working! – Superhero Card Game dev update

Here it is:

inprogress-004

 

So, in this game, you create a superhero (or supervillian) and create the powers. The stronger the power, the lower the chance to draw it from your power set (or deck).

Next to work on is the actual battling, it’ll be a turn-based street-fighter-esque. Eventually, after the core gameplay is done, I’ll add the ability to customize the costume of your character!

State of Starship Command

Hi to the ~20 Starship Command players!

It has been too long for any news about SsC, but here we go!

I have not abandoned Starship Command. I’ve just had to take a break. There is so much more I want to add especially the ship boarding. But after two months of that, I’m still hitting some game breaking bugs with it.

So, with NaNoWriMo, coming up I figure I’d take a break from SsC and get back into writing. After that, I’ll see how I feel about it. Starship Command is the game I’ve always wanted and there is more that can be done with it, but it has taken up pretty much every single hour of free time that I have had for the last 14 months, and I’m burnt.

So, here’s to all the captains playing it. It’s not dead, just a hiatus.

Thanks you.

Long time, no update

It’s been a while since I last updated about what’s going on.

I’m currently mapping out the 100+ hull interiors for Starship Command, hopefully that and all the associated coding will be done by the end of the month.

I’m also polishing up Visual Plotter and trying to come up with a way to introduce a new user to it.

So that’s that, hopefully soon I can get a new build of SsC out!
