Settling on Presentation
One of the things I have been promising myself to do, is to complete a project that I have started. I tend to get only so far in a project and then abandon it for the next more shiny thing.
I have a couple of open ones including:
- a Dark Age of Camelot Web Game
- a Dark Age of Camelot: Herald
- and a Warhammer Online: Realm War
DAoC Web Game
The first project that I am attempting to get into a skeleton working state is the DAoC Web Game that runs with the operating and plain title of “DAoC Web Game”.
From these concepts I implemented these designs in order to see what worked.
This presented a problem with a limited size and non-uniform placement of buildings.
I found this gave the best expandability, and ease of presentation.
Since my design needed to increase the amount of usable tiles based on the players rank, I had to maintain 4 separate pages to output which required different size images etc.
Next Task: Resources and Construction.
