Thanks for the Pathfinder link :)

Tooltips now display monster CR.
I've fixed an issue with armor check penalty all by myself and made character sheet, tooltips and log messages colored, to make important stuff more visible.

A friend has promised to help us with items & monsters and Seb is working on a new map generator.

Awesome, congrats on it all continuing to come together and everybody pitching in at getting one thing or another better situated.   8)

I think that's all the OGL stuff out there period, unless you start to dig into the Retroclones which are perhaps a bit too removed, at least at this stage considering all there is to go.

Heh, I look forward to an eventual progress meter that tops out at "Well, this is pretty much at Incursion's level plus or minus a few bits" then heads onward.

One good thing about the T-Engine is how easy it is to set up addons for existing modules. In this case, it means that people can more or less easily house-rule the game. :)

That would be quite an achievement. I'm not a 3.x edition person, so I don't even understand everything, but omg is there a ton of stuff in Incursion. The dungeon generation alone is its own special type of awesome.

See, that's why I love Open Source. 2 people can do much more than 1.

LOL, so do I.

Version 0.0.7 (beta 1.75) has just been released on git and ToME.

CHANGELOG:
 •new map generator
◦armor check penalty bug fixed
 ◦colored log, char sheet and tooltips
 ◦encumbrance displayed in char sheet
 ◦encumbrance fixed

There's a few bugs waiting to be ironed out before beta 2, as well as class-dependent level up (the code is in, but it borks out. If anyone's so inclined, I could use a helping hand)

/derp. I'm getting scared of making a changelog for an eventual minor (0.x.0) release, let alone a major one!/

EDIT: Game renamed due to someone pointing out "Underdark" is considered PI.

A salient move on the name change, even besides the fact that this now frees your hand to eventually work in other sorts of underground venues and happenings beyond just the canonical sort of Underdark.

Heh, just keep that progress pace and changelogs rolling and all should work out just fine---those milestones in particular should wind up extra delicious ones as they'll mark serious new levels of progress and polish.

You mean you actually looked at the GIT milestones? I thought it was only us 2 who used them.

Heh, not exactly though I did just now dig around a little bit and find that part---having a point buy option for those not keen on rolling is definitely a good idea for one.

We're over halfway to beta2, as GIT says, and we even managed to get some stuff done which was planned for beta 2.5.

Also, the mod now has a page at ModDB.

I've been rolling out some small improvements over the past few days (mostly to do with the colors and with character generator).

I've also coded some new content (ecl, log display, achievements, random name generator, item identification), however, the code seems to be buggy.
Seb's almost done bugfixing the multiclassing code, however.

Belay that. I just got item identification to work, which means you have a working skill to see how skills work in VotE.

In other words, we only need multiclassing (class-dependent level-up) and skill select screen to work and you'll get beta 2.

How surprising---based on the current milestones page I figured this was farther out, but hey, no harm in sniping at various milestone goals so long as it all works and keeps apace.   :D

In the future, probably best to have the resulting zip file labeled accordingly to the version in question.
