Nic's development tweets

I tweet a lot about the development of Fringe Planet - as well as talking about game development in general. Twitter is fantastic for getting the message out, but tweets always slowly fade out of view as time goes past. So I've decided to add this section to the website, which contains everything I've tweeted. You'll find a lot of information about both me personally as well as the game.

A Christmas tree... before they vanish forever (well, until next year) :-)

Twas a close thing, but it looks like the peons will be keeping the Christmas decorations until next week - thank you to everyone who voted - I'm sure the peons appreciate the festive jolliness! :-)

Good morning folks! tis the first Friday of 2019 :-) - and its time for some #gamedev :-) Today (amongst other things) I'll be writing a blog post about what to expect this year from @FringePlanet - what are your plans for this rather chilly day? (at least tis pretty chilly here)

Last tweet o' the night (and first 'last tweet' of 2019 ... I'm using "the first of this year" phrase rl a lot already ... I may be predictable :-)) I'll catch you on the flip side folks, take care o7

Slight frame drop while re-calculating all the islands (and excessively sensitive height control buttons - need to fix that as I hardly use them) ... but pleasantly surprised about the performance :-)

You will conform!



More run time #procgen :-) I wonder how many I can run before hitting frame rate issues? :-)

Real time procedural generation of mini biomes that orbit around your central island :-)

I think this is the first time I've been memed about - and in my defence, twas only one hat which resulted in a single line of code added to spawn it - thankfully not the cause of any bugs :-) (Maybe being too nice to the peons though?) :-) https://twitter.com/WhatFusiion/status/1080855443214340096

First build of the year :-)

Debating waiting until everyone one leaves the @IndietopiaNL office so I can "liberate" this nerf gun :-)
