Release 0.0.6

Postby Terl Obar » Fri Oct 10, 2008 10:21 am

This project is still going albeit very slowly. For back history see the Second Sathar War Game forum at Starting up my website and running my campaign, along with helping bail out issue 9 of the Star Frontiersman mag has eaten a lot of my spare time but I'm slowly getting back to this.

A new point release is available. This is version 0.0.6. There is not a lot of new stuff but I thought I'd toss it out and get feedback if any. In fact there is nothing new on the strategic game side. This release has the beginnings of the combat board. It implements the following:

1) Creates a new window for the tactical combat board
2) Draws and numbers the hex grid
3) Allows you to scroll around the board and zoom in and out
4) Prompts you to select a planet icon and place it on the map
5) Prompts you to place a station in orbit around the planet.
6) Prompts you to select a ship icon to place (but there are no ships yet ;) ).

To see the board, go to the 'Show' menu and select 'Show Battle Board'. This is currently completely separate from the main game as I flesh out the mechanics of the tactical game play.

There is a new download location from here on out. You can find the files at:

Windows version - (1.6 Mb)
Linux version - (3.8 Mb)
