ISO City

I just changed the resolution of my screen down to 1024 x 760. Now that I think about it, I believe that I considered myself to be somehow part of an elite group because I had such a high screen resolution. Well, if I was, it wasn't much fun. Somehow, changing my screen resolution has motivated me to become involved in all of the sites of which I was once a more active member. This explains why I am now making one of my semi-annual blog entries.

Over at the GMC today, I saw

It's an <a href='http://thegriddle.net/isocity/'>Isometric City</a> where you can put buildings that link to your website. I spent about four hours this afternoon working on my building. It still is only mediocre, and I need to work on a little bit of the cropping:

Here is the replacement:

I've done a little bit more work on Last Offensive Option. I improved the soldier grouping a little bit a while ago:

I'd really like to release a demo, but I'm not quite ready to do so, and I don't feel like explaining the controls and everything. However, if you go to my website, and type in some really imaginative, or maybe not so imaginative, urls, maybe you'll find something.

Right now I'm working on the AI searching method. I add an immeasurably small element about once a week. At this rate, the interaction that I want to be in the first demo probably won't come for about a year, so don't get your hopes up. That's an overestimation, by the way. I'm notorious, at least to myself, for making promises on the internet, and not coming through, but I won't do that this time.

I saw that topic, too. It looks like a great idea.
