Why you can’t make walls yet

Posted in Other by Ziggy Friday November 6, 2009 at 17:01

I’ve been working on my little programming project, AutoMasonry, for over two years now. The problem with starting a project, is you never know exactly what you’re getting into. For example, I got the initial test version working in just an afternoon. I could make stone walls! It was great!

Now, I’ve added arches, radial stonework, variable openings, and lots of other features. It seems every new feature takes longer to add than the previous one… probably due mostly to my horrible design architecture. I’m learning though, and I think my code today is probably unrecognisably better than when I first started the project. I’m getting tantalyzingly close to releasing v0.2, which will probably look very similar to the first “real” V 1.0 release. Yay! Only a few more years now…

Crappy Story

Falling Star

The invention of the Soul Cannon unnerved the Colossi. It also unnerved Eric, though this was less than impressive. Had he been borne six years earlier, he would have found himself doing scrub duty on the mining robots in an asteroid facility. Now, he was considering volunteering for siege duty. (more…)
