WEll I hit a milestone today: Have a screen of the Tactical Map in game. I sat down today and drew up some good old fashioned programmer art, and made my self a simple 5x5 level with 2 different tiles and 2 ships! I didn't try and implement the HUD, so the screen is sorta boring, but it's cool to be able to move the ships around, and in spite of a few bugs I had to iron out, adding new tiles and ships proved quite painless.
Heres the screen (minus nice art)
Well, Mark is hard at work on a super-carrier, and the fighters to go with it,so hopefully I'll have somemore cool art to show you guys tomorrow, but until then you'll just have to imagine[grin].
