I cannot wait for my tent i simply CANNOT WAIT.

Well, I actually can but you know what i mean.

ps: woooooooo!



Wait wait wait no tents yet. Dwellings first, then basing the Tents code off Dwellings once Dwellings have been thoroughly playtested.

At this rate, I see no reason why Dwellings can't be released by the end of next week.

*Has been looking forward to dwellings also and joins in the general revelry. Manages to do so without choking, tripping over power cables or any other major accident. Is rather pleased with himself for this.*

Oh? The announcement of the much anticipated dwellings on the approach? What a great birthday present to me! Thanks kindly, Almighty Joe.

Well, actually it's not my birthday anymore, since it's officially the thirteenth, but the announcement was made yesterday, so it counts!

That's....kind of scary. Happy belated dual-birthdays? WOO!


Isn't sanity just a one-trick pony anyway? All you get is one trick: rational thinking. But when you're good and crazy, oooh, oooh, the sky's the limit.

Improbable Dwellings System: pulling another all-nighter.

What works:
Gathering materials (uses iitems as it's meant to be used - rather than determining a specific iitem to be used, player can use any iitem with the "woodchopping" or "stonecutting" properties (of which there are only two right now, so it won't appear much different to the player yet)).
Picking up and dropping material iitems on the World Map (this is reusable for later iitems, just add the worldmapdrop property - see above).
Buying a land claim stake.
Renting tools.
Staking the ground.
Setting up build jobs.
Processing build jobs (any player can join in the building, only the dwelling owner can set up new build jobs).
Erecting a dwelling.
Entering and exiting the dwelling.
Chat space.
Build jobs for room expansion.
Build jobs for creation of additional rooms (each with their own chatspace).
Custom room and house titles and interior/exterior descriptions via the Decorating system. No more shack/cottage/mansion divisions - Improbable Dwellings has roleplayers in mind.

Not yet implemented but required for release:
Lockable rooms.
Sleeping (and corresponding Stamina gain).

Not yet implemented but could be added after release:
Furniture, including beds, kitchens and so forth.
Modulehooks for Improbable Labs modules.

Gonna try to at least get the sleeping system done tonight.

Lockable rooms.


1st:What? The good old practice of 'ITS MY LAND GO AWAY RAR!' doesn't appeal to you?

2nd: Oh you know there are going to be some horny players 'taking advantage' of those locked rooms

Good, I for one am tired of people porning all over public spaces (and the beach right outside DICE Hall... noooooooooo!)

Now they can finally get a room! Big Grin

Oh yeah. I'm pretty sure Dwellings are gonna be used heavily for cybering.

Sorting out the sleeping system... First version sucked, now doing a simpler one...

WHAT WORKS:
Going to sleep.
Accessing New Day menu from sleep page.
Refreshing the page from sleep page.
Getting a New Day from sleep page.
(house owner) Kicking out sleepers.

WHAT DOESN'T:
Getting a Stamina boost (although this is pretty trivial).

EDIT:
During testing I'm pretty much just kicking The Watcher out of bed over and over again. Big Grin

Huh. I could've sworn that the girls were supposed to kick us guys out to the couch, not the other way around.

Stamina boost sorted - we've no beds yet, folks are just sleeping on the floor, but furniture shops and so on can be released after the core system...

Can you get the stamina buff when using a Chronosphere, or do you have to log out there for a normal New Day?

You can use a chronosphere. Needed some changes to daysave.php, but barring the new day menu stuff and the World Map integration, this is pretty much DragonBones/S3 ready. All iitems and stamina, very little core stuff involved.

Individual rooms and entire dwelling can now be locked or unlocked. No functionality to create or distribute new keys yet. Going to bed.

Didn't go to bed, added nested room functionality instead. Now an ensuite bathroom can be set as inaccessible without going through the bedroom, for instance.

OK, now I'm going to bed. Four in the bleedin' morning.
