No DTD for the body plans and stuff?

Went from this:

  <human />
  <generic text="yes">human</generic>
  <male text="yes">man</male>
  <female text="yes">woman</female>
 <playable />

…to this:

  generic: "human"
  male: "man"
  female: "woman"
 tallness: roll 1d50+150
  length: 6
   oneof blond,brown,black,red,gray,white,auburn
-- Can also do color: oneof blond... to make it a text value for the color
-- token instead of a new child token to color.

This solves the problem of not being able to make a DTD for XML files that include tokens. Not only that, but no end tags to mismatch and no more brackets.

From the archives

This is the first prototype of what later became Noxico. It had rudimentary scripting, which is in mid-demonstration here. The yellow on blue smiley was white on gray with shades first. A few ticks later, he’d ask “what did you DO!?”

The whole entity generation thing was developed separately at first.

Yeah, I totes went there

Items can be found on the floor and taken, though there’s a bug where looking at a dropped item or picking it up continues into looking at yourself for some strange reason. Also, the plan is to let the player take anything in a 3×3 grid around him, which would let me put stuff on shelves. Shown here is the part where you can read books, Elder Scrolls style. There is in fact a single “book” item, and the carried item’s tokens determine which one it is – specifically, the ID token.
