    Today was filled with bugfixes, which definitely aren't the most exciting thing to do... Hopefully tomorrow will be more fun!

    * Vorb Engine *

    Today was pretty much all engine development, mainly working on getting a bunch of bugs fixed with clipping and layout, and getting auto-scroll working properly with combo-boxes. Rather than add a bunch of custom code for each widget, I am instead using composition, which means that certain widgets are composed of other widgets. For instance, the resolution picker combo-box you see in the image below consists of button widgets for the clickables, and a panel widget for the drop part. (pretend like the resolutions aren't all the same).

    The UI is nearly to the point where it could be used for the Demo, so I probably won't be working on UI much more than Monday and Tuesday I would think. My current plans are to do a livestream next saturday hopefully using Jeremy's streaming program JStreamer, and then release the demo on Sunday.

    Still todo before demo:
    - Finish the options and controls menus.
    - Add a bunch of changes to the star system that Georg requested.
    - Make random planet generation awesome. < This will be a fun one.

    Now I am off to the hot tub.

    Post happiness-explosion edit: I am so happy right now, Ben! I can't even put into words how much I am looking forward to next Sunday! I'VE WAITED SO LONG, BUT IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING. :D

    Also, procedural planets?! My god, you're not just reinventing KSP and Minecraft, but Space Engine too! BRILLIANT!

    This plus yesterday's mind-blowing article has proven to me SoA has a very good chance of being the best game ever. :)

    Haha remember, the demo will NOT have voxels, only space stuff. As soon as I finish the demo I will be working hard on getting voxel stuff ready for a full release of 0.2.0, and of course I will post all my progress here :)

    Nice resolution menu you've got over there.
    I'm looking forward to the stream and the demo, great work!

    When this picture loaded, it was really low-res
    I thought you were making a point with the low resolution :p
