P0-B7: Part 1388: Debugging, Improvements

by on Mar.24, 2024, under Astral Realms, P-0, P0_B7, Software and Games, Spirit of the Stars, Spiritus Astrum

My testing sessions are continuing to get longer and more involved. I am still finding bugs, but most of them are minor, and some are exclusive to the build, such as shaders not being included, etc. Most of the issues that are left are either balancing issues or design issues that need to be reworked. […]

Testing is still going well. I have made some more minor cosmetic improvements, but nothing serious. I have also started working on some game balancing changes. This could take a long time, and I don’t want to spend too long on it now, but I did need to make some adjustments to the main timers, […]

I have added some new debug flags to make debugging easier with the build. I have also made a few more minor improvements and bug fixes to guis and player interaction, etc. I have improved the legibility of text in bright lighting conditions, and fixed a minor lighting bug in the build. I have also […]

I have completed the run of tests that I was working on, and I didn’t discover any major bugs. I have fixed a few minor bugs, and made some very small improvements. These were mostly cosmetic, but it is only now that I have had the time to really look at them. I have also […]

I am in the process of testing the project with the build and the remote server, and so far there are very few issues. I uncovered a few minor bugs, but nothing major. I have added a few improvements to make debugging with the build easier, and I have done some testing on the sqllite […]

P0-B7: Part 1383: Debugging, Improvements

I have made extensive improvements to the object placement system in the world. The system is now capable of searching for the flattest terrain within a given radius of the player in order to place objects. This makes it much less likely that the objects will be obscured by the terrain, or that they will […]

I did discover some issues with the networked AI system, but these thankfully turned out to be minor. The AI for the creatures and NPC’s/enemies, etc, is quite a lot more performant and robust now, but I still need to continue testing its functionality in multiplayer. I have also completed some more extensive stress-testing of […]

I have completed another full retest of the story system, and made several more improvements and bug fixes to it. There were some issues preventing some NPC’s and characters from spawning properly in some conditions, these were fixed. There are also some issues with adding Characters to the ships crew. When these characters spawn in […]

P0-B7: Part 1380: Debugging, Improvements

by on Mar.03, 2024, under Astral Realms, P-0, P0_B7, Software and Games, Spirit of the Stars, Spiritus Astrum

I am working on another complete retest of the project, and I have managed to identify and fix two intermittent bugs. Both of these were caused by the story system not properly setting the control object of the player when the player entered a ship. The next goal is to finish the retest and test […]

I believe I have fixed the issues with the AI on changing zones. The issue was that the AI wasn’t paging to the client when the player left a zone and then returned. This required some rewrites to the server-side code, but it seems ok now. The server AI is a lot more solid already, […]
