Hello Readers! In my mind, today is actually Wednesday, and prior to now, so was this column. So if you don't really think about it, it makes sense that this column would happen to be released on a Thursday and still be on time. Quickly now, before too much thought is allowed to occur, let's see what has been on the minds of developers around BYOND!
Lummox JR has spent the last few weeks attempting to stop the cascading chain of failing chained operators, more details on that on the BYOND Patreon page! Additionally, fixes to filters and non-topdown maps have gone into effect, and a change to how objects lookup unchanged variables means reduced memory usage for games! Filters work better, visual contents updates correctly, and the turf image hang bug has been exterminated. What's next? Perhaps a method to measure maptext space usage?
Kozuma3 has been working on some projects in their time not connected to the World Wide Web. The first project shared is a basic platformer with a few hundred furry friends. The seem to mirror your moves, so don't get trapped! The second project is named Paradigm, and is a text based RPG. Explore the world for treasures, craft tools and equipment, and take down the Abyssal Demon that killed me :).
AvidAnimeFan has resumed production on Kage: Rise of the Tengu! Dozens of new items have been added, questing interfaces have been upgraded, new Ninpos have been discovered, safe areas have been established, and new tools can be purchased from the casino with... winnings....
Crazah fills us in on the latest redesign for the website of Zenith's Call. The domain name reflects the game's new name, and you'll also find current information about the game, along with the official forums.
Magus8 is talking religion and politics in the latest status update for Arcane Chronicles. A screen capture of the game's intro menu has been shared, and some mock-ups of the players inventory and status displays are on show. The game begins with the player as a pupil enrolled in a magic school whose construction has been recently completed. Next is the hiring of faculty, writing of books, and a hefty helping of computerized wizardry.
