August 1st – Quick Progress Report

Evening folks! Looks like I’m doing another daily update, but since it’s my second in a row, I’ll be keeping it fairly brief. :P

For my part, I did what I set out to do and finished setting up the moon mine dungeon file and key, so I’m good to start building at any time. That said, I opted to spend some time fixing an issue that’s been bugging me for quite a while with all the chests. Up until this point they opened up in a painfully slow fashion and as a side effect were not appropriately playing their closing sounds if players closed them relatively quickly.

As for the others, here’s what I know:
– Supernorn has continued working dilligently on the Novakid ships.
– Metadept has been working on implementing a new item type. Not quite ready to talk about this one yet. ;)
– George has been producing new assets for the gateway to appear in the nav UI, along with some other elements relating to Metadept’s work.
– Kyren has been doing some cool stuff with instancing, specifically concerning how they can be located and reached in the world. I’m afraid I don’t fully understand the specifics, not being a programmer, but she should hopefully be able to make an post about it sometime next week.

Afraid I’m not really clued in on everyone else’s activities, but exciting things are happening. I’m looking forward to starting work on the dungeon next week.

Until next time guys!
