Some work in progress pictures of the skills and equipment tabs in the character window, like with most other things new skills can be added via xml! Skills can be gained by using up an amount of skill points which is gained by several different actions, be it defeating monsters, hacking at a wall or fishing, it’s an equalent to an experience-system without levels.

Plants and their creation
It has been quite some time since I wrote my last entry, but I’m always working back on forth on the project, even though it some months go very slowly due to real life and work. One noteworthy new thing is that I wrote an actual proper system for plants, which is easily shapeable to any kind. I will most likely even use it for things that aren’t plants but might grow and become...
Eldpack 3.8a released!
Eldpack 3.8a is up, which is fully compatible with minecraft 1.0. Terrain and items are updated so far. Monsters and Gui will be updated later on. www.eldpack.com

So I’ve mostly been busy building systems, or rather, a bunch of code that could support the different things I wanted to get done for the game. Most recently it was a piece of code that enables the functionality to spawn any entity (or random entity from category) when a block is destroyed. The first thing I would do with it was to make regular cave walls spawn a stone: The game will...

Decided to start up this blog on my game project since it was severely lacking a place where I could talk about it properly beyond the limited tiny texts of twitter. So here is my introduction on it, and also serving as a text for those who wondered what it actually is.
