This is a re-post from my blog The Melting Cube


Hello,
This week on the Dukandia Dev Team we started work on the engine again! Currently the engine supports window and full-screen mode and is fully capable of giving us what we are looking for in the engine. We may be changing the engine up slightly depending on how research goes, but that's another story.

New layout:
From now on out all Dukandia Updates will be titled as such with a number, these numbers will start from 1 and go on, since this is new 1 will be placed on today's entry. At the bottom of every entry I will have "The fridge" it will be a summary in some cases, a letter to our followers in others, but is generally just news that I have decided to post, it might not change for weeks or it might change several times before you see it again.

Current Features:
Window Mode
Full Screen
Image Support
Networking
Night and Day menu cycle

This week:
This week we will be creating the new GUI with night and day options, we will start work on various clothing items for the sprites, and we will also look into a game library. We also have two new projects who have come to fight for our attention, these projects are still in the planning phases however and will not be discussed on here until they are done and the leader of said project gives me the OK to do so. Stay on watch though I am sure I can get you some previews or treats regarding them!

Next Week:
Next week I will show you the progress with the GUI, if I find it even half presentable that it. I will give you insight to a new site design that will better fit our needs. I will also discuss a game engine we are in the midst of planning to help speed up the processes, and I will share some background at what exactly we are doing.

The Fridge
Although this gave you a little bit of an insight and I know it wasn't a lot of new information, these are our goals and we will keep you up to date with them, thanks to anyone who follows these I'm sure you expected a bit more from us and I promise we will start delivering.






Good ole' window and full screen modes! Awesome! :)
It's been made much easier as we have upgraded to a library to assist the engine, the re-write is now up-to date and we need only to make a few modifications :)
