The curious case of a feature

I've fixed couple of features and it's as awful as I assumed. Yesterday I was able to partially rewrite a new lighting routine for static lights (that don't move). The light falloff is linear which can be fixed later, but the main routine for lights is ok I guess.

Sometimes fixing a feature will introduce new features to fix which in this case is a peculiar problem related to facing of walls. The lighting routine can lit the wall from the "wrong" direction (depending on where the player is), making it lit without visible evidence of a light source. This is somewhat common problem in tile-based games with more sophisticated lighting scheme and I have to find some kind of solution for it.

The plan is to stay with technical features and when they are done everything that is left is the RPG system.


  1. Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. See the link below for more info.
