Build Prototypes

Fred's gone home for a little bit of summer vacation this week, so instead of some animations, let's take a look at the build tools and where they're at as of now!


First up, the add new (room) tool, seen above! The cost of the room will be shown in the middle, and you use the arrow keys to decide where to place the entrance. 

Below, you can see the prototype for the resize tool, where you use arrows to first select which wall you want to make bigger, and then keep pressing the arrow key in the direction you want it to increase. As you do this, the amount of lumber needed to complete the action is shown. Right now it displays with a minus sign, while the add new room does not, but in the end they'll both use the same format. 

You'll be able to pull at the walls however long you wish even if you cannot afford it, but you won't be able to confirm your edit unless you have enough lumber. The reason for this is so that you can try making the room the size you want it and see how much lumber you'd need to make it that big before you go purchase more at the Carpenter. 


Finally, there's the reshape tool, where you can edit the inside of the room. Pulling down (or up) these walls don't cost anything, so you can redesign the shape of your room freely!


There's still some polishing left before we're ready to patch, but we're definitely getting there! Our estimate is that it'll be up and running for Frontline users on Monday at the latest. Stay tuned~
