Rough notes on the things going into Milestone 0.31. Mostly things that got missed from 0.30.

Estimate delivery date: Aug 8.

I'll mark things that are done in Green and italic. Things delayed to next milestone are blue.

Engine/low level:
  • Loading of Pfx from XML.
  • Multi track animation.
  • Stability fixes!
  • f12 Screenshot timestamped file names
Game:
  • Colonists research via terminal computer.
  • Colonists collect water barrels from the still. (done but not entirely functioning in game)
  • Colonists will relax on couches.
  • AI will wait/idle for other colonists to finish using appliances (sometimes impatiently!).
  • More colonist movement animations and blending. - (Seriously need to get around to getting this in)
  • 3 Female head variations.
  • Faster path finding.
  • Patrolling with weapons.
  • Procedural back stories for colonists.
  • Imps carry minerals back to storage room.
  • Imps carry fossils to lab.
  • Rooms will have lights in their tiles.
  • Reworked bulkhead door sound.
  • Earthquakes, solar flares and meteor impacts will have more variety, complex sound.
  • Room ambiances.
  • Sound for blackout and brownout.

Will relaxation on couches be a game mechanic or just some sort of animation to show that they are currently not doing anything? I would imagine that people who are exerted would try to get a rest. People who exert themselves after a very long period of resting/idling would exert quicker and have aching muscles, decreasing their efficiency for a short time.

This is a game where people can die from exhaustion. Of course it will be a mechanic! :D

People who are more tired will tend towards going to bed rather than light relaxation.
