Well then I have a side project, but I try not to talk much about it:


Great, ascii too. I like the look. To bad the player is about to be munched by all those forest trolls :P

Nice, I like the fact that big monster, like Trolls, block LOS

Ok, Slash, you're creeping me out. You DO know those are Trees, right? On the internet, :P really helps to figure out the tone with which people say stuff.


Also, my plans for 2008: try to survive another semestre.

No they are really trolls. LOL

IIRC IVAN is the only RL that I know of that large monsters block LOS.  I am now stealling that idea. *yonk*

As for it not being fun it is all in the implemtation. I always like the idea of allowing allies to be computer controlled but player guided.  You give the order and hope it is obayed.
Yeah, I have always wanted to do something like that.. also, they may give you orders and you decide if you want to obey :P

I havent seen a good implementation of it.. yet

Just wait then ;D.  Damn my rewrite of warlocks mountain just got pushed back even further.

My plans: get rid of as many of my projects as possible. The more that I can finish or kill off or reduce involvement in, the more I can steer towards what I want my main project(s) and time spenders to be, without guilt.
I plan to start on and release a demo of my isometric RL, and probably to enter the 7drl.

IIRC IVAN is the only RL that I know of that large monsters block LOS.  I am now stealling that idea. *yonk*
Hmmmm... :)

I'll drop a line, as a way of inciting myself to play more in 2008. I guess my humble goal would be to release a first version of my until now unheard of, and by that time hopefully not too primitive, roguelike (main features: simplistic/laptopfriendly commands & more random content than most roguelikes). My main hurdle is that I work from home and freelance, which means I'm constantly stressed out about some deadline. Oh, and the fact that this is my only programming project, which means I constantly forget how coding actually works (:

Hmm... IIRC IVAN & SewerJacks are the only RLs, that I know of, that large monsters block LOS. ;D
