Posted by Data in Cortex Command - February 7th, 2008

After most of a month of recurring fevers and aches, it turns out I’ve probably got viral meningitis. It could have been much much worse (bacterial version), but it still hasn’t been good for productivity.

However, we are working on things that should improve Cortex Command in a couple of big ways over the next several builds:

Lua scripting. We are finally starting to integrate proper scripting into the engine. At first, it will only handle game logic for scenes, so scenarios and events during missions can easily be set up in external script files and not be hardcoded. Eventually, we hope to expose AI and other actor behaviors as well, so you can literally make your own AI modes – with control all the way down to how the AI guys look, aim, and shoot.
The current data (.ini) files will still be left intact, and the script files are just to be added and referred to by the object definitions in those existing data files.

Completely new license scheme. No more asking us to reset keys when you forget to unregister before reformatting your computer. You’ll be able to do it yourself. Also, we will be offering new methods of payment, which hopefully will better accommodate folks in countries with weaker currencies and less access to credit cards.
Don’t worry, we will make sure that all current license owners will have an extremely easy time transferring their keys to the new system when we roll it out.

That’s all for now, heading back to bed.
