Here's where a good technical design doc would come in handy if I were more experienced I bet...
I've at least started coding again, which is a step in the right direction.
- Added a class to handle the "Waiting Screen" for clients to chat while the map is being generated.
- Added a class to do simple elipsis animation. [eg: "Generating World...", the ... will rotate from "" to "." to ".." and so on to give the illusion that work is being done.]
- Added code to handle that Lobby->Waiting transition when all players are 'ready'.
