Project Plan

Project Phases

Today I took some time out to draw up a brief project plan. You may have noticed this up the top of the page. The idea is to provide some very simple milestones to get me back in to this full speed and save me planning out every last detail without actually doing any work.

This is very similar to way I do things at work. I tend to figure out each of the features I need to implement and then once I have something working code I re-write/copy it in to a complete skeleton that rigs everything together. Next step is testing and making sure all my error checking is thorough.

Phase A

Phase A is really nothing new, I've implemented all these features before (and in fact most of phase B too) however this phase is just a really easy milestone to hit. I'm *not* going to worry about the quality of the code at this stage and whether it will be good enough for phase X... this time I'll spend time designing the classes fully when they A) become bigger or B) become bound to something else that is growing.

Other Details

I haven't thought of a name for this project yet or really given away many details. I guess this will come in the future.

Side Notes

Remembering how to use a Japanese layout (work computer 1), US layout (work computer 2) and UK layout (work/home computer) is pretty tough especially when they all share something in common with each other and all have something different. Fortunately back space is the same place on all of them :)

Bonus Edit

I took a picture of a sketch I did, cleaned up the edges (almost), then did a colourise on it. I would have painted in sections and applied better effects but unfortunately I couldn't quite do it in the image package I downloaded. Anyway hope you like it... shame I coudln't pull out the detail more. Oh and another sketch of a different ship...
