Re: Scripts and Computer Play Aids?

Decided I wasn't interested enough in doing it in Python. Back to C#.

API is up and running locally for game creation. Just does the planets, stars per the galaxy rules for now. Going to spend a little time on the front end now.

Re: Scripts and Computer Play Aids?

Website getting closer. Going to do some more work on it local before I commit it to GitHub and try Amazon's new Lightsail product.

Re: Star/Planet Creation

Here's an example off the next run of the program. Got the six star system. Rolled like it was in a Firefly universe. (Which maybe is okay?) It rolled as Major, but with multiple stars, wow, 5 garden planets in one 6 star system. (Note: Jumplanes aren't converted to VBAM-Galaxies yet.) Rana is a sex...

Star/Planet Creation

I've built a quick little script to rapidly build out star systems according to the ruleset in the Galaxies document. Couple of things I noticed. 1) Not sure how to call a system importance on the first star generated. There are certainly chances that the extra stars built will be much more attracti...

Updated to conform to the galaxies ruleset for star/planet creation.

Re: Space Combat - The Elephant in the Room

I vote swarm.

Giant battles of all ships engaged in a battle sounds epic, but it quickly becomes routine and just becomes like a Starcraft II match. :)

Re: Scripts and Computer Play Aids?

meh, don't be in a hurry to dig up a notebook. This is just the scripting for now. The end goal is to put the scripts behind a webservice and hook it all up to a website again. Just going to focus on the API calls for a bit before I dive back into the front end. I expect it will be similar to what I...

Scripts and Computer Play Aids?

It's been a while since I've had an opportunity to play with some code again. I had started some play aids in C#, but the job I had been in had absolutely sucked out my will to code, and I didn't do much with it in the last three years. So now, I'm at a new place, but it's all open source, so to kee...

Re: 2nd Edition progress?

It does feel like it's getting closer. I'm starting to look for weekends I can schedule out to get some coding done on the play-aid

Re: Computing Jumplane distance.

I know you were all on the edge of your seats. :) I found a way to do this in an AI book. Implementation slower now that I burned off all of my vacation last year.

Computing Jumplane distance.

I'll eventually figure this out, but I'm lazy and thought I'd try crowdsourcing it. I have some database tables for the web play aid. Here's what part of the entities look like public class Starsystem { public int starsystemid public string starsystemname } public class Jumplane { public int jumplan...

Planetary Bodies.

Just thought this was cool.

Looking for more ways to visually communicate star system attributes and stumbled onto it.
