Blegh! Major refactoring is being held up by holiday stuff... driving back and forth across the country all month! I'm using the time to lock down some more design stuff but I'm itching to get back into the code... but I know it'll be better if I dont get interrupted for a week+ when I'm just starting.
I did order a new laptop on black friday that I can actually code on (my ancient eeePC can barely start up), but the jerks delayed the shipping to after the holidays (seriously!? The hell kind of ship are you running, Lenovo), but I'm going to see if I can cancel that one and find a local machine so I can start some code during my christmas trip back home.

Dude take a break it's nearly Christmas :P you owe your self that what you have released so far is a great starting point

Yep, still plowing along. I'm rebuilding the whole GUI system from scratch which is taking some time as I get used to all the changes, then I'm adding back the scripts one at a time, editing for cleanliness... basically rebuilding the project for a nice clean base to work from. This is the last refactor for awhile, and with all the changes happening at once this path happened to be the easiest. Nothing exciting while I port over the previous code that works and strip/upgrade the code that doesn't.

refactor

Ah yes.
Starting over because the spaghetti code is so awful to work with.
Been there.

(I actually rebuilt a project I'd been working on for four months in two days, after having not touched the original in over two years.  The refactor took a 40-minute asset build cycle down to a 10 minute cycle--totally worth it.  Downside: I ran out of sprites and can't really continue and I'm not an artist)

How long as a estimate do you think all the changes will take ? And thanks for the update :)

Refactoring
Oye, yeah. It was less due to spaghetti code and more because I had to rewrite such a massive portion of GUI and Mission Planning (two very code intensive parts), that it just made sense to start a clean build. Though getting rid of some of that much that was starting to accumulate will certainly be nice, not to mention applying everything I've learned since starting this project to make things better.

estimate
This refactor could go smoothly or could become a nightmare, and I can't really tell at this stage how it's going to go. Or at least, there are so many variables that the range is too wide to even matter. I'll have a better idea once I get a new playable build - which again, too unclear to say right now.

Hey SB, been keeping up with Twitter so I know you're plenty busy but....

Think we could get a teaser shot of the new UI you've been working on? If it's just not ready to show yet that's cool, but after reading about it has gotten me all pumped again and I'd love for something to tide me over.

It's not very shiny yet, but there's a pic up over on the facebook. As you can tell a lot of systems still aren't back in yet. It'll be awhile still, I think.
Here's another:

Definitely an improvement. The variance in font really helps give it a less 2-bit look. Keep plugging away sir, looking forward to taking it for a test spin when it's safe for public consumption.

I'd like a "less noisy text area background" option.  The "Juliet Agency" section is a little difficult to read as there's a lot of text on a fairly complex background and the elements of each are a similar thickness.

That said, it is much improved.

Hey spark I noticed you have changed a lot in the game and now it revolves around you as the broker could we get some more details on that ? Also does this mean you as a broker act sort of like an agent now and you can interact with the world?

If nothing else, one would think the enemy corporations should be able to try to kill your broker while they're out on the town.
