This would be far easier if I hadn't been doing all my programming on a virtual machine...

So, I managed to access the VM's hard drive, but couldn't access the files :(. Doesn't look good :'( .

Can you not dump the entire hard-drive onto something safer like an external HD, then try and extract the files later?

I tried, but my external hd is formatted in FAT32, which only supports file sizes up to 4GB an the VM's hard drive file is 8.8GB... Toying with the idea of getting hold of a 16GB pen drive atm.

These drive sizes are all small.
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

My drive is 500GB, just the formatting which is stupid. Also pretty much the only thing on the VM is Township and some Uni stuff. Also apparently just copy/pasting a VM breaks it :/ .

I've used this program before and found it handy: http://www.acronis.com/
They provide some trial runs of their various tools. Maybe they be useful?

I'm such a genius, that in trying to get Township off the HD when it broke, I have potentially ruined what turned out to be a ridiculously simple thing to do D: .

Making buildings placeable! They snap to the tile grid, to make pathfinding around/to them work properly. Sadly, this means no more free rotation of buildings. Walls will be built tile by tile now, rather than with preset lengths of wall, allowing for greater customisation of layout.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Next is the battle of making all the buildings do what they're supposed to based on a few lines in a text file ;D . Then some basic enemies to make it a game, along with smoothing out the menus somewhat and adding in the load/save screens. Followed by a release. The map settings screen I showed will wait until further down the line to be released, since linking in all the options I want to have would result in me never getting anything released at this rate :P . My aim at the moment is to make everything as customisable as possible, hopefully eventually (read once the game is enjoyable) allowing the player to 'design' their own soldiers by equipping them with different loadouts, and being able to save these as unit types that are trainable.

Will the buildings still be 90 degree increment rotatable?

Is this still being worked on? It looks like it'd be really fun.
