Rambling About

I saw the doctor yesterday, and got some antibiotics, and I'm feeling better in that the symptoms are less severe, but I'm also completely wiped out, which I wasn't before today. Who knows what tomorrow will bring.

But there's been some sporadic progress in the world of Ramble. My development version now includes:

  • A simplified version of Angband combat
  • You can now buy a variety of hand and missile weapons, with appropriate ammunition for each.
  • Giant garden slugs
  • Line-of-sight visibility

That last feature came as quite a surprise to me, as I hadn't planned to do it yet; and even more surprising, it's fast enough. I'm rather shocked. Though, I'm not entirely happy with the function I'm using to compute the tiles on a line-of-sight between two other tiles.

Anyway, "I aten't dead", as Granny Weatherwax would say, and I hope to have energy for writing prose Real Soon Now.
