What to expect? (Next Release Preview)
« on: December 05, 2013, 06:49:45 PM »
The next release will be: Township pre-alpha 0.3

The last release was: Township pre-alpha 0.2

The Key Points
  • 0.2 required Python 3.x, this will work with either Python 2.7 or Python 3.4.
  • There will be maps of "unlimited" size.
  • It will be released once I have the basic map functionality fully implemented as a "tech demo" type thing.
  • There will also be an executable and installer for folk who don't want to battle with installing Python and all the required libraries.
Feature List
  • User interface for playing the game, rather than the old "only hotkeys" nightmare.
  • Infinite, 2D, map to build your townships.
  • Trees and stone scattered around the world, with stone common in higher areas and trees mostly gathered in the lowlands.
  • Villagers with a number of attributes that affect their ability to perform jobs in your township.
  • Monsters who roam the world, some which seek out your township and others who are passive unless disturbed.

I got forests working today. Hopefully I'll get rocks working tomorrow (although tomorrow and Thursday are busy days for me) leaving me to work on villagers over the weekend :D .

O.o Aaawsoome! Can't wait. Will villages have different sizes and stuff?
Most effective elected official. Ever. (not counting Jubal)

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.
