A new page has been introduced, the so called unstable releases page. At this page you can download the most recent (but unstable!) version of Dune II – The Maker. The intention is to release often new versions. Do take into account that unstable releases contain  more bugs, even regression (ie, features that worked in previous versions became broken). However, any input regarding an unstable release is very welcome.

If you want to provide feedback to an unstable release, please mention the revision number.

Update: Download is fixed & categories assigned properly to post.

Path finding progress demo... made it so I use a priority_queue, did X4 speedup. Nice! https://dune2themaker.fundynamic.com/video/new_pathfinder_02.mp4 #indiedev #gamedev #d2tm #dune2

Path finding testing is done on a map (64x64) where only 1 possible path exists between two corners of the map. I also found a bug in the heuristic function - it would evaluate too many cells. With that sped up greatly, but still needs to be faster.

Spent more hours on path finding. Still too slow! (100/200ms for 1 unit, finding 1 path is SUPER SLOW (on complex map)). Need to shave off more milliseconds.

It is not so hard to implement a new pathfinding algorithm. The harder part is to make it perform properly. Especially when you send over groups of units. #indiedev #gamedev #dune2 #d2tm #remake
