Next version coming on Monday the 12th!
« on: May 09, 2014, 07:24:13 PM »
Hey guys,

So you know I generally try to do a new update each weekday, but I think I may start omitting Fridays now that I'm not working weekends the way that I was prior to launch (I was 10-14 hours a day, 7 days a week for a month or so there; Keith was along those lines at one point earlier, too).  Anyway, given that this is Mother's Day weekend and that's a fairly big deal when you have young kids like I do, this is definitely not a weekend for me to release something on Friday and then discover I need to make an emergency patch on Saturday or Sunday.

It's been an interesting couple of days, because I had some other general business stuff to take care of for Arcen, and I also had some more framework stuff to do on both quests and auto-resolve.  I'm really pleased with how those shaped up, though.  I have four new quests (variants of the same thing; see release notes) all ready to go for the next release, and then two other quests that are 95% complete.  With the framework stuff I've done, I should be able to put together more quests quite quickly coming up, too, rather than those six taking me the better part of a day.

Anyhow, just wanted to give you an update so you wouldn't wonder where I was or look for an update that actually isn't coming until after the weekend.  Everything is proceeding really well, but sometimes we do need more than just one day for a given update.  Not too often, but occasionally. :)

Have a great weekend!
Chris
