Now if you've been following Dukandia's progress you'll know that for a while little to know work was being done until last weeks re-design. Now the re-design of course did not go as planned, it went better. The redesign completely changed the speed at which Dukandia can be done. The redesign, however great it is can not protect us from the next road block: Sprites. Anyway below I have a few questions that I hope some of you are willing to answer these questions relate both to personal preference and to what you think is the best idea to keep the project moving.
Server data if course is going to be a huge part in Dukandia, and well any other serious online game, and well I just don't have that much experience with server data. In all my years of programming the teams I have worked with, well to put it simply they were the people who said "I hate my job" so the minimum effort was always applied. SO here goes my question:
Do you think on file or MYSQL server data is better, if neither what is a better way?
Sprites now or later:
Now this I am pretty sure comes down to personal opinion although it may be one of those "everyone does this" situations, anyway I was curious I will soon be getting to a stage in development where sprites are needed for sure, should I worry about making them now, or should I use a temp to get programming the rest of the general menus and then come back? In my opinion sprites now but I usually love to hear what people have to say and why, one persona cant identify all the angles after all.
Do you think making a sprite now, or coming back to it later is more efficient / better for development.
Dukandia like all games needs and icon, and well we have a few chosen, not just chosen named! This here is purely personal opinion but it matters to us! So let us know! We have narrowed it down to two contestants:
Bill the leaf, or bob the book (below)?
Sundays inside peek
This Sunday I have decided that I will post a video of Dukandia's menu. This is really nothing to be waiting for however, it does show you the menus, how they look in working order and such and thus it IS worth mentioning, so stay tuned!
