Caves of Zircon Tutorial
This week was about Displaying Stats in Caves of Zircon. The article is ready and you can read it on the site.
We’ve worked on sanitizing the consistency of the
Component APIs so whenever you try to build a
of the values in the component builder are pre-filled with sensible defaults. We’ve been thinking hard on this
topic and now we began to converge on a proper solution for this problem.
We’ve also started working on optimizing the rendering in Zircon which will make the API calls much faster. This
will also enable us in the long run to relax the current limitations in the
GameArea: you have to specify a number
of layers which can be in each
Block. In the future there won’t be this limit and the whole
GameArea will be
much faster to enable rendering much bigger maps!
@Seveen, who is progressing through the tutorial started to work on Dijkstra Maps
and the results look really interesting.
S stands for “stalker”. We plan to integrate this functionality into our projects at some point, we just have to
decide where will be the ideal place (possibly not Zircon itself). Exciting times!
