I know it’s not officially spring yet, but the weather here the past week has been amazing, with unusual highs above 70°F. Certainly no one reading this cares about the weather though.
I celebrated a birthday since I posted last, am just shy of 30 years old. That feels a bit strange to think about, but not any more so than to think my daughter is 2 1/2 now! It’s been a ton of fun to be able to play outside with her now, and oh man does she ask questions! “Why?” is one of the big ones of course, but she’s also asking us “How do you know?” too! I can already see it’s going to take a lot to keep up with her mind, but I’m looking forward to every second!
On the programming front… we’re still working on it! The game continues to take shape and we are still pushing to get a demo out ASAP. I don’t have much of anything to update on where general progress is concerned, but I very much am wanting to do a write-up on the coding miracle that is Spatial Hashing. Essentially it’s a remarkably simple system that allows for incredibly efficient collision detection in a game. I’m excited.
Overall I’d say I’m doing fairly well. Except for gas prices. but I can’t see anyone being alright on that front. I’m gonna go ahead and leave that kind of thing alone. Or maybe just for a separate post.
I’m still going to promise more frequent updates, though I know you’ve heard that one before. But I’ll try! Until next I write, happy gaming!
