I don’t know what to do

X DISCUSS: Time compression
• Walltime events (night, Fri 13, full moon…) (see girlkawa – time.txt)
• Robe and Wizard Hat items
X Timed swimming so you can cross bodies of water
X Has Gills token, allows unlimited swimming
• Aquatic TF, comes with gills
• Doesn’t Breathe token, for slimes and such
X Slimes can’t enter the water for fear of dilution, to balance Doesn’t Breathe and Has Gills
• An in-game story about a cursed king who’s always in the rain, dark, or sunlight
* Better Him/Her/It considerations (see girlkawa – heherit.txt)
X Support for nipple-less breasts
* Remove concrete babies, add a temple where the midwife dæmon takes them instead
* Replace sex scene system with new design
• Add swaffel support
* Detect item stacks, use action menu to pick one
• Make corpses a kind of container so you can loot from them instead of scattering shit all over

Where • is not done, * is in progress and X is pretty much done.

I don’t know what to work on. There’s too many options! What do?

I’d been pondering the use of XML in Noxico and feeling inspired by YAML and BML, I converted the item database, which is basically a series of token trees wrapped in XML containers, to pure tokens. If I give TokenCarrier.Path() the ability to search for specific values, allow HTML-style Unicode entities both for loading and saving, and hack in the merge feature, I might be able to drop XML entirely.

I haven’t actually put this in the game proper, but here’s the proposed new format in a practical example, compared to the original XML version.

Good idea?

Good news!

The replacement part is finally here. It’ll most likely be installed this Friday. Then, comfortable development can continue.

I’ll likely focus on Chelsie for a bit though, or some of the other items on the list like showing a list of items on a given tile to pick up instead of taking the first one detected. I don’t want the pants, stupid game, I want the sword!
