Been working on removing the original hull health system and adding 3 different health bars for each arena in its place. Just a few more polishes and I'm done. Also, I'm still working on re-balancing the game - everything's still on paper though.
Just realized I saved this photo onto my desktop. A few weeks back, the Minister of Communications and Information, Mr Yaacob Ibrahim dropped by GSC (where we are situated) for a visit and popped by our office. We exchanged a few sentences and he was soon on his way. It was a pleasant experience - though I'd never understand why there was a such a large (relatively) group of people following him around.
Been busy trying to improve the performance of the game. Says on the screen the number of objects being constantly updated per frame (after writing some code to recursively count them). 83. I'll say it's an improvement from the 290+ active objects from 2 days ago.
I must admit though, most of the unnecessary update calls were my fault anyway ;p
This took a little longer than I've expected, but the additional visual feedback is finally in for when player purchases a turret. Not sure if I'm over-doing the size of the text (will probably reduce the size if I can find the time).
