A Bit of a Tangent
I've been a bad developer the last couple days. Instead of working on the stuff I promised for the next update, I've been doing something not completely different, but somewhat tangential. I have, as it turns out, been working on coding a launcher for Shipyard. At the moment, it will show the changelog, download the latest version, check for newer versions, and run the game. It won't be winning any beauty contests, but it does its job.
You can download it here to try it out. You need Java to run it and an internet connection to download the game and retrieve the changelog. So far, it's been tested on two computers, both running Windows 7 64-bit, with no problems.
Here's a screenshot for the skeptical:
As for the game itself, I'll get back to working on it. Version 0.7.2 has already been released, featuring the ship overview screen, new movement system, and a few other changes. You can expect one or two more of these smaller updates as I prepare the game for the addition of the combat system, coming in version 0.8.0 (Or maybe Alpha 1.0.0, if I'm feeling extravagant).
