Due to the very cold winter this year I turned myself again into a 'hikikomori', so chances are we're going to have a new netpanzer release soon.
As usual I have no idea of what I am doing, why I am doing it and for whom.
Anyway here is the plan (things may change in the process):
0.8.8 (hopefully out in early Spring)
0.8.9 (late summer? - wishful thinking I'm afraid)
Needless to say most of the new stuff will be added 'as option' - as gameserver admin if you don't like something you will always have the chance to disable it in config files.
Furthermore, I keep thinking about new features which may eventually be added to the game, but they are just fantasies for now:
Last year with 0.8.7 we totally skipped the promotion part (social sharing, blog posts, videos, reviews etc) and we saw the consequences... As soon as next release will be out I hope in your help to spread the news.
Your ideas I like. But that map of winter... need a review, will note much that only has applied a filter by over. hehe. I hope to have a new map editor, the current one does not serve as much to create new ambiences.
I agree with Silvestre, do not waste time on things that may or may not work, and that can be very hard work.
I think there was a big mistake in choosing 0.1.0 in the versions, since 0 means nothing, so there is nothing.1, due to the big change, the game can already move to version 2.0 since there will be team battles, I speak the version (0.4.9)
The latest ideas are wonderful, I think the site should warn you as facebook does when you enter an online player, or else you have in the app like whatsapp a notification of players online.
The issue of the plane could have a power bar that when it was complete, would be a bonus to launch against the opponent.
Concordo com Silvestre, não perca tempo com coisas que podem ou não funcionar, e que podem dar muito trabalho.
Penso que houve um grande erro em escolher 0.1.0 nas versões, já que 0 significa nada, então não existe nada.1. Devido a grande mudança, o jogo já pode passar para versão 2.0 visto que haverá batalhas de times, falo da versão (0.4.9)
As últimas idéias são maravilhosas, penso que o site deveria avisar assim como o facebook faz quando entrasse algum player online, ou então que tivesse no app igual o whatsapp uma notificação de players online.
A questão do avião, poderia ter uma barra de energia que quando tivesse completa, seria um bônus para lançar contra o adversário.
[COB]Fsk is right with his point of view for versioning number. A Versioning Number starting with 0 is totally nonsense. Fu and me we discussed that already some times in the past.
I always prefer the system "Major.Minor.Patch":
Fu and me we are not responsible for the old Versioning syntax, its legacy. But at least we decided to continue that faulty, old Syntax for a while, right Fu ?
Maybe it is now the right time to get rid off old behaviours and start with a 1.0.0.
For me it would be more than ok :)
Perfect analysis! I believe that the version with teams will be a lever for the game.
Perfeita análise ! creio que a versão com times será uma alavanca para o jogo.
