right now, pocketwar is imho nearly perfect.
the only thing i'm missing are customizable maps.
it would be great, if you had more options when creating a map.
things like sliders for i.e. land/see relation (island maps or contiinental maps), number of mountains, forests, number of citys, ...

I'm still hoping for the campaign thing, but a custom map/mission editor would be great.
Hey Tully, any hope of seeing eithor of these things in the near future, or should I just send you another $20.

I started working on campaigns and some of the code is already in 1.05. I also started working on the map editor. It turned out to be a bit worse than I thought it was going to be to build because of the way I did the maps.
I am working on a non-game, non-pocket pc application right now that if it goes well will buy me more time (as in bring in a steady income.) Once I get more time I am going to finish up a second game I have been working on. When it gets into the beta stage then I will go back and put the campaigns and map editor into pocket war.
Of course I never stick to my plans so I will probably find free time to do the campaigns and map editor sooner. :)
It is hard not to work on something that you have already spent so much time on. You want to see it keep getting better, but at the moment I am unemployed so solving financial problems comes first.

Are you at liberty to tell us what the second game is that you've been working on?

It is to far away for complete details.
I'll tell you a little though, it is another turn based strategy game but more for casual gamers. Faster paced, but less strategy than pocket war.

I know you are busy Tulley, but any progress on the Map Editor ?
|Posted By: Thomas (2003-09-21 14:53:33) |
Yes progress is being made but because of the way the maps work it has turned out to be a harder task than I throught. Plus I am trying to add support for a story. I am hoping to have something done before Christmas.
