Hi everybody -- been getting up at 3am for the last week, and the large map stuff is finally here! Hope you like it... Will post link in a minute. If it runs slow, try changing the display distance in the SETUP.TXT file -- or if you have a fast machine bump that up to 100. There are some rendering problems with distant terrain (due to the simplistic quality degradation stuff) -- but eventually that'll be replaced by a more elaborate system (that runs faster too)...
Anyway -- this version also has some less rudimentary crafting code in place (RECIPE.TXT file in various objects) -- basically, it's a list of 10 other objects that can be combined to create the object in question... Sorta like this...
[4 and 5]
-- That probably doesn't make sense (and there are some kinks to work out with it) -- but that's the basics of it.
This version also has a bunch of Brennan's new music he's been composing -- the title track is really good -- might even make a little intro piece to go with it eventually... It's attached below if you wanna hear it...
The artists have also been getting some good work in, and will post some of that in a few days... But for now...
