Judgment call...what should the 0.2.2 release trigger be?

Drop-dead March 30th.  Flatfile listing of items in-game is fine.
- 1 (50%)
Socrates' Daimon should generate an item spoiler web page system, not just this flatfile listing.
- 1 (50%)
Socrates' Daimon should generate a flatfile listing of monsters, in addition to items.
- 0 (0%)
Socrates' Daimon should generate both item and monster web pages.
- 0 (0%)

Short-term, Socrates-Daimon.exe (Socrates' Daimon) is where the buildout of the automatic documentation generation is.  The game will be played through cataclysm.exe indefinitely.

I am not averse to moving *all* of the wish-mode options into an external program, but that program is not Socrates' Daimon (intent is more static analysis of the game).

EDIT re lack of ammo from military crash site...three a priori possibilities to check for.

  • I can check for an archaic vsprintf crash if the save directory is PM'ed.  Won't actually fix anything, however.
  • Having Socrates' Daimon verify that ammo exists in-game is "in scope" for this release cycle (won't fit in drop-dead but the other three options can have it).
  • Having Socrates' Daimon sanity-check map chunk and map special generation is "out of scope" for this release.  (The restructuring required to do map generation outside of game object control, is extensive.)

Poll results are in.  Between the poll results and in-thread comments, I will interpret this as "ship 0.2.3 with item browser web pages on hard drive".

Moved out of the shelter without talking to the npc there , and went north east finding very close to the shelter a bunch of corpses, military from the equipment i looted on them.
was wielding a m203 launcher but no ammo for it, then found a m4a1 that i decided to wield thinking one of the ammo stack i looted would fit.
Looks like the inherited map extra generation doesn't actually guarantee this.

Agreed that there is a potential bug here at the map extra generation stage here (I'm fine with empty guns, not fine with issuing irrelevant ammo.)

Checkpoint: 6 of 13 required item category pages are handled by Socrates' Daimon, as of "tonight's" push to GitHub.  They do have a left navigation menu.

I'm unclear on how far to push map special adjustments (restructuring to allow postprocessing is in place, but haven't actually built out the postprocessing.)
