Hello, players! If you’re looking for a big game update, well, sorry. I’ve been focusing more on my other project, Solaris, for the past couple of weeks. That being said, I got something big done tonight – I re-did the Settings screen!
The old Settings screen had three big problems: 1) It was really cluttered, because it had all those settings on screen at once, and not really organized that well, and 2) the code behind it was atrocious – especially the code behind changing keyboard controls, and 3) it had (almost) no keyboard support! You had to use a mouse to get around it.
The new one is much more modular (in the interface and the code), and so pretty. It’s divided into 4 separate tabs, each of which has a simple, super-clean look to it. But don’t take my word for it, take a look at this screenshot!
Note: This update has not yet been released. For now the screenshot is all you’ve got.
All right, that’s one screen prettied up. What’s left to do?
- Project Pretty Things Up (continued): Re-do armory screen in a similar fashion to the Settings screen – that one also has terrifying code (mainly in one feature that I can’t tell you about because it’s a secret unlockable) and zero keyboard support.
- Project 16-Bit-Awesome: Re-draw all of the old weapons (older than the new Vibrosword) to use no more than 16 colors and to look awesome. You know, like those Polar Blades look.
- Project Just-Make-The-Darn-Level-Already: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’ll get to that.
