So things have been slow for MMORPG Tycoon 2, over the past few weeks. Here’s what I’ve been up to:
The first big obvious thing is this: I’ve started a company. This was necessary for all sorts of financial reasons, but it required a lot of legwork and research and paperwork (and accountants), as well as learning a lot of bookkeeping. As somebody who has spent all his life as a wage-slave who lived modestly, this new level of fiscal responsibility is very new to me, and a bit tricky to adapt to.
I’ve also been doing some contracting on the side, to help make ends meet. While I’m not working anything even remotely close to the hours I worked in my last full-time job, the combination of this and the setting up of the company has taken up pretty much all of my time for the past few weeks, and has left me pretty stressed out in the evenings.
Luckily, I think the company stuff is all set up, now, and shouldn’t take up so much of my time any more. And today, I’ve finally managed to get back into MT2 development. I had a major breakthrough in the new AI system today, which had been stumping me for quite a long time. It’s such a relief to be seeing real progress again!
Sadly, AI improvements don’t really make for good screenshots. I’ll see what I can post tomorrow, though.
