Post news RSS New Worlds: Setbacks...

The random generation is starting to irritate me, but there is some good news too!

Posted by on

What's Wrong?

The random generation keeps producing near enough the same results, which would be acceptable if these results didn't cut out 3/4 of the map! As you can see from the image below, there is a giant wall of stone, this keeps appearing at the same X position of the map, which basically means, the random functions in flash are trying to mess with my head...

(don't worry about that 2160 in the inventory, its for debugging)

I hope to get back on track soon, but if I can't get this working, I don't know what I'm going to do... But don't worry! I have a few idea's on how to fix it.

Some good news!

The cave generation may be screwing up, but there has been a breakthrough on map-size. The optimisation of hiding off-screen blocks to save processing power means that you can have any size of map, although a map of 1000 makes my laptop freeze, so I halved it to 500 for now, which generates relatively quick, and the awesome thing is, you can see it cutting the caves right in front of you! A new dev build will be up when I get this stupid generation bug fixed!

Thanks for following me!

I noticed that since the last news article went up I got 3 more followers, its not an army, but I appreciate it!

Play the current development build!

The current development build can ALWAYS be found at the below link, so save it!

I love this stage of development - you know, when it's really frustrating. I'll be watching this looks like it might be interesting.
