I started playing with portals which I'm THINKING about putting into a future release. (Not sure yet, though.) I'm still trying to get them to work right. You can walk through them and shoot spells through them, which is cool.
P.S. Most of you probably don't know me. I'm Stephen. I'm now one of lead developers on this project. @a_lomo has done a fantastic job with CodeSpells, but he has moved on (to work for Google no less!). Because of this, we had to slow down development over the last few months. I'm excited to say that we'll be ramping it back up again now!
I'm glad to hear that development is kicking off again. It started to feel like the CodeSpells was abandoned in its semi-incomplete state (ie. multiplayer buggy-ness, login issues, and ancient spell brokenness), which would have been a horrible shame.
It's such a great game, with so much potential.
Sweet! Sorry to see Adrian leave the team, but that's awesome that he's with Google now! I'm also glad to hear that development will be ramping back up, can't wait to see where things go. Those portals are looking cool - are they teleprting light too? That's something that always bothered me about other magic portals. If portals move matter and energy, shouldn't light move too?
As Amulgagar and CodeGlitch said : glad to hear the development comes back!
I've got some questions (I always do) ^^
-Will you join the Discord Channel? ^^
-May you give us a list of methods and properties per object, to use in Eval (most impressive spells were done in Eval, and having an up-to-date list would make it easier to code) ?
-May we have the same for the Arena Editor? ^^
-What do you think the next update will be about?
Aaaaand... What's your favorite element? ^^
Have a nice day ! (going to bed, bye!)
PS : Don't you put portals without a cake! :o
I think that it would be awesome if you could use the portals to transfer objects long distance or cast spells through them ^_^.
Unrelated question that I'm curious about - does @a_lomo leaving meaning that development of TORB is canceled, or will that continue to be developed? I know it was always a side-project and not a main focus, but will it be completely scrapped now?
Yep. It'll be a while before we're up to an Adrian-level of productivity. But we're definitely still going to move CodeSpells forward.
Sure, shoot me the discord channel. I'll try to drop in.
Earth is my favorite element (at the moment).
Feel free to send me feature requests. Just please know that it'll take us a while to ramp up on the project. So we'll be working on small, very achievable goals to get up to speed.
Teleporting light would be AWESOME! It's probably beyond my graphics coding abilities, but we'll see!
Yessss. You can definitely do that.
Haha. You'd have to ask him. Torb has been around for years without a definite finish date. I suspect he'll finish it one day. But who knows? It's always been more of a side-project for Adrian and Jason.
Thanks a lot!
I'll leave the link here, so you and others can join : https://discord.gg/0slGVGLl4Cs4uc6p
I think I'll make a list of the most-wanted things by the Codespells community and send it to you ^^
