My first town map is finally done. Magenta. This is where you will start out in the world and where a short tutorial mission will take place. I had to add a few new tiles to populate it but I think its got sufficient variety now. I'm slowly working through the tutorial mission now. The first missions take longer to write as I have to add new script support as I need it. I've added an OnCreate script so I can conditionally lock doors and unlock them later through conversations. It should be easy enough to conditionally unlock them also, say if you need a specific key or item. The tutorial missions locks you in a small room with the main female protagonist of the game - mina. She starts as your tutor but will turn up throughout the game at points in the storyline. As you complete her tutorial quests, she unlocks doors for you and eventually you'll be free to roam the world looking for quests.
That's all for now. My day job is still eating into magelore hours. The chances of releasing this thing by christmas are looking pretty slim unless content starts speeding up really quickly, and I still don't have any shops which will take a little while to get right.
