My silence took long enough, so I just thought I'd check in.

I'm currently working on the Alliance Victory screen. The thing is that I usually draw 1 character per picture and even then I feel shamefully slow. This pic has seven characters, but even so I'd be done by now would I not be addicted to playing Terraria totally ineffectively, digging out tunnels and tidying them up unnecessarily while my RL room is a complete mess. Imagine what happens when Starbound comes out -- same damn thing on infinite planets! (http://playstarbound.com/)

On topic though, the thing is coming. The background and the planet -- the simple part -- are already done and the characters are halfway there.

Yay!

My philosophy* when it comes to doing what I want (and spending my time how I want) is that it's my time and as long as I'm enjoying it it's probably worth it.** I just played through Rage again. Not a valuable use of my time but, hell, it was fun.

Star Control wise I had really wanted the demo back to the point it was originally at - with ships flying around - by the end of October. I didn't want to get hopes up so I didn't mention this explicitly. Which was a good thing as I didn't manage it. Not by a long way.

I did get quite a lot of work done but nothing showable. Actually the only thing I can show right now is that I Git believes I committed a whole bunch of stuff.

Comparing this to my earlier git picture you can see things ramping-up. In fact a 16 day commit streak is my longest ever, on pretty much any personal project I've worked on I think.
Image

So what did I achieve? Well... it's hard to explain but I'm going to anyway. Just not in this thread - I'll start a new thread off topic so that those who're interested in the shadowy world of programming can see what I'm doing and those who aren't can ignore it.

** With the caveats that I shouldn't be causing grieves bodily harm, mental anguish or contravening too many local laws.Each to their own though.

Here's the now presentable Alliance Victory screen.

(Probably -- hopefully -- it's Hierarchy counterpart will be easier to do.)

REALLY REALLY GOOD work Kwayne!

The screen is awesome! I'm sure the hiearchy one will be easier, as it's just a Ur Quan slimewad.

I don't like Syreen, Arilou and Chenjesu... The rest of the Alliance is very well done.
