News: Current Developments
Okay, quite some time since the last news post - and that's definitely not because nothing happend - no! WIdelands development is actually quite active at the moment :)!
So where to start?
Well I think I will not describe all new features and changes that exact as I did the last time - simply because it's too much and I am too lazy
So let us start with some screenshots of new features:
Chuck is very actively working on the tribes's workers animations - so far the barbarians are already finished (yes you did not missunderstand - all workers do have their animations now! And the atlantean animations are already quite far as well :).
Further some new features were implemented, like the "second view mode of stock" - you can now see all available materials in your economy as well as all material that is stored at the moment, if you select the "stock" from statistics menu.
Another feature allows you to set, whether a ware should be prefered for storage in a warehouse or whether storing of that ware should be stopped or even be outsourced - just click on the ware in a warehouse or headquarters to set it's preference.
And not to forget the new user interface in military sites ...
Ahh and while we are at it - the symbols for soldiers and their health bar were reworked, to have a more unique and understandable mark for soldier levels.
Some more things were added or changed, that are not that easy to show in an image:
- The existing campaigns were modified to use lua as engine, this leads to a much more smoother and more intelligent campaign behaviour
- A " I will show you how to play Widelands" tutorial was added.
- New music was added :)!
- It is now possible to set a condition for when a game is won.
Besides the new features in our current development trunk, some work was done in seperate branches, like opengl implementation, the first atlantean campaign map, work on metaserver client information transport and some more interesting construction sites.
I created a small preview to give you some visualisation how the campaign might look like . Take a look here for that video.
... and as always: a lot of bugfixes and code improvements ...
Well I surely forget the half or even more...
