Re: Progression ?

At some point it will. I'm sure. In the near future it's unlikely though, unfortunately.

Re: Dev Blog - Trilarion

Sorry, at the moment I cannot help. There are good tutorials for UI creation with Qt. It's not difficult, there are signals and slots in Qt and they enable event driven communication in a very decoupled way. UI elements are all derived from QWidget. Layouts are recommended to determine the position ...

Re: Dev Blog - Trilarion

Sure. That's one way to do it, but you'll have to improvise things nevertheless because the Imp1 manual does not contain all the details of the game, especially not how it works internally. How are the prices for the produced stuff set? How is the influence on the minor nations sets? How does the al...

Re: Dev Blog - Trilarion

Re: Dev Blog - Trilarion

These things make sense. They go in a good direction. Nevertheless, a more long term plan is also needed. What are the next big things that need to be finished in your eyes? Back then, I never really finished a description of the game and you seem to have some sort of long term plan. Do you want to ...

Re: Design of network communication

1. Turn. I was thinking that each player does not send any action in its turn rather than collects actions in a batch and after pressing 'End turn' button sends the batch to the server. Server waits until all players finish their turn and starts calculations. Server checks for allowed actions (not ...

Design of network communication

Here I will write down the current state of the network communication for a better understanding and for discussion and improvement. lib/network.py On the most basic level we wrap around QtNetwork.QTcpSocket , which can connect to and exchange bytes data remotely.
