While working on the next release (0.6.5) I wanted to improve the sidebar a bit.

  • when you hover over an icon you can keep reading info at the top bar, the text won’t disappear unless you move away from the sidebar
  • the information at the top bar will show you the build time left if you hover over an item in progress
  • the top icons at the sidebar (list icons) are flashing when something interesting happened there
  • when icons got added to the sidebar, they will flash briefly

See some of this in action in this short video clip

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
