this afternoon i added item pickups to my dungeon crawler. monsters can now drop coins, health or potions (whose effects will last a few turns)

logs for important contextual moments! will add a sound effect for things 'noticing' you as well, i love the sense of dread that comes with this

Show thread

got a first version of enemy pathfinding working. monsters now chase and attack you

Show thread

simplified the visibility check: if you're in a room, the entire room is lit up. if you're in a dark corridor, you only see the tiles next to you.

i also found the reverb tools (:

Show thread

added fog of war to remember areas of the map you've already visited. some bugs in the visibility ray cast here but that's okay

good news for this project: i've made jquery entirely unnecessary using a one-line CSS hack.

disclaimer: probably the hackiest solution ever and i'm almost ashamed of how much javascript grease it requires, but so does the unity loader itself. fire with fire

don't tell anyone but i ported my dungeon crawler from python to godot. it's way easier for me to handle and i can make portable builds without a hassle. scripting language is surprisingly similar.

quick color palette idea, not sure if i'm going to go with rogue-style text representations for entities or actual sprites. leaning towards maximum possible simplicity so sound can do most of the lifting

Show thread

probably in over my head but i'd love to make an automated growing map of the full history of my run routes. one day

Show thread

116.66 km total

longest:
9.09 km - 0:55:10 - 5:39/km

3.54 km - 0:20:28 - 5:47/km

i transferred the last ~10 years of my run activities from nike to strava. the importer tool also allows for access to the raw gps data so i get to play around with routes and lines

I’ve been making a small city building game the last couple days in luxe (luxeengine.com). it’s moving along well

managed to get rooms and tunnels to draw using functions that are way too sophisticated for me to wrap my head around.

next up i'll try to add some semi-puzzly combat, goal tiles (ladders?) and a way to play sounds. python is....... a lot
