Thanks!

And without promising too much, I have a feeling that I'll have version 0.1 finished by october, if not sooner...

I'm very much still around. I'm currently working on the Mercenaries' Guild mission computer. I think I'll have some screenshots up in the next few days.

As to assistance; thank you for your offer, but at the moment I've got everything under control. :)

I'm doing it in Pascal. I considered doing it in C++, but as I'm a lot more proficient in Pascal, I decided to go with what I know.

You're certainly welcome to tell people about the game and this site -- then they can come and join if they want to. :)

You need to have at least 50 posts under your belt before you're allowed to have an avatar. This is to prevent people who rarely use the boards from having an avatar, as each avatar takes up space on my server.

Development Discussion and Suggestions / Re: Random Sectors?
« on: April 17, 2007, 12:09:11 AM »
It's too late for that. :D

And even though it's an interesting idea, I don't feel that generating a random universe is right for this kind of game. I want the Ascii Sector to be a fairly established place, where there's a meaning and intent to the placement of the systems. A place you can get to know.

However, that doesn't mean the sector will be static and unchanged from episode to episode. If a few months or years pass (game time) between one episode and the next, I'll probably add a few changes here and there: some new buildings may have been built on some bases, or maybe entirely new bases have been constructed...

I want the sector to evolve just as the game itself does.

Hmmm, interesting idea. I haven't planned on adding something like this for the demo, but I'll probably add it for the complete game. It shouldn't be too hard to implement, as AI ships can already escort another ship. I don't think I'll do it via missions, though. I'll probably just have a few bounty hunters sitting around in the bar, and you can talk to them and hire them for a price.

Hi Greywolf!

When I first posted about this game in the public (back in January) I believe I said that the demo would take at least a year to finish. Well, the things I've programmed so far haven't taken as long as I thought it would, so all the things related to flying around in space are close to being finished -- I just need to finish all the non-plot missions and a few minor details.

Then I'll go on to work on the bases. Now, the basic structures and procedures for bases have already been programmed, but I still need to program the Commodity Exchange and figure out how to make a system that simulates the supply and demand of each commodity, both on the specific base and on a Sector-wide basis.

I also have to 'draw' the layouts of each base (I've done three so far) and make the shipyard computer where you repair your ship and buy/sell upgrades (I haven't started on this).

Then when all that is finished, I'll work on the dialogues with people on bases (random people walking around, people with missions for you, and the bartenders).

I believe I'll pretty much be done with the demo after that! Whew!

Anyway, to make a long story short, all that will probably take another 1/2 - 3/4 of a year. I hope to have the demo out before the end of the year, but for the last half of this year I won't have as much free time on my hands as I've had so far, so this timetable might get extended...

Also, welcome to the forum! :)

Thanks!

And congratulations on being the first person (besides me!) to post an on-topic message on these boards! :D
