Alright, time for a brand-spanking-new milestone thread!
To me, anyway, this is where things are going to start getting a bit more interesting. We're going to be doing the lion's-share of creating a world in this build, so it should be some good stuff.
This is the longest milestone to-date, with 24 entries in it. However, a whole lot of them are pretty trivial (there are a bunch that are nothing more than UI setup). So we'll see how it goes. I'm hoping this one isn't nearly as long as Milestone 4 was, in terms of coding time. But you know how that goes.
I spent the last couple of days going over the design doc, and I think it's ready to be posted, so I'll be doing that shortly. It's grown by another 3 pages, hehe. Not a lot of new text in this one, I just finished the list for M6 and added the list for M7, and did a bit of minor rewriting here and there. It didn't seem to me that we needed a lot to go ahead with M5 for this one, I did a lot of work on it between M3 and M4.
It also occurs to me I didn't post any screenshots for M4. So I'll go ahead and do that as well before I get started with the coding.
So here we go with another one!
