Happy new orbit round the sun

So a slightly late happy new year, GameDev.

Spent the last three months, including the Christmas break, on a promise that my permanent contract at work was beginning on the 1st January. In fact, spent the 1st of January under the impression that I was now on a permanent contract.

Nope.

Can't be arsed to go into details. It's not a reflection on any of us currently on temporary contracts, it's a budgetary thing. Still very cross that I was misled so badly but hey, what can you do? I'm not the only one and there are people who have been there a lot longer than me that a) are in the same boat and b) don't actually apparently know yet.

Bloody company.

Programming-wise, the game has been put aside while I rewrite my polygon map editor. This is being partly based on the code-base for the old one, but I've been inspired by some stirling work HopeDagger is doing on his Skirmish editor so the new editor has a rudimentary GUI.

It's pretty basic but quite good fun to write actually. I've just discovered the fun that is applying the composite pattern to GUI elements.

No screenshots today, since a picture of a big blue screen with a slightly lighter blue grid is unlikely to impress many of you.

And all the very best for 2008.

Although the screenshot you described wouldn't be all that interesting now, it would be satisfying for you, and interesting for us, if in another 3 months you could look back to the post you put it in and realised how much your GUI efforts had come along :-)

I agree. Screenshots are there to show where you are, and to be looked back upon months later when you have the completed product. [smile]
