The place where you announce your sprint goal and discuss it with everybody including the team leaders. Team leaders (Programming, Graphics, Music, etc.) must visit this place regularly and make sure the sprint goals are consistent with the overall project goals. Even if you do not have a goal in mind, you can become inspired here. Keep in mind that a goal will need to be completed within the 7 day sprint, and you will be setting a new goal should you sprint the following week.
It is important to understand that final approval for a goal lies completely with the volunteer, not the team leaders. Sprinters are always free to contribute in any way they choose!
Here you can:
Volunteer for a sprint
Discussion of a possible goal of a sprint
Post only to register for a sprint goal or if you want to discuss a possible sprint goal!
Considering that the next release/progress update is scheduled for 6th of July, I volunteer for a Sprint from this friday to next friday.
I want to have a set of simple buttons ready to be used. They will replace the placeholders for the buttons which are used now and will feature a wooden background and symbols in the foreground (no text). I will take inspiration from Creator and afterwards will give him the set to work on it or replace it with something even better... Currently he is not present much but that might change.
The set will include buttons for all the things mentioned here. This is a graphics related sprint.
And I volunteer for another Sprint for the same period, right away.
I want to have the program displaying relevant scenario information (from the server) and letting the player (at least in SP mode) choose parameters like own nation, ... This is just for showing. The scenario will still not start then. Also I want to improve the editor, so that provinces, nations, ... can be renamed or deleted. These are small but somewhat numerous tasks. Still they could be finished within one week.
For next week I will vonlunteer on game mechanics discussions. I will try to get into them again and after discussing open points try to write down a closed (taking everything into account) account of how economics should work.
Next week Sprint of me will be about music. I want to test music capabilities (PyAudio I guess) and I want to extend them to have player like capabilities. Anyway I need a break of graphics and this is a topic of low importance unless it doesn't work - so one better checks it early on.
Next week Sprint of me will be about recreating the starting screen of the Java version (recreating 0.1.0 so to speak). I hope to have it done on Friday 2nd of May.
However I will not make an official release with it, because the content is much less than the last available version (0.1.4). The plan is to release a Python powered version 0.2.0 somewhere within the next three months and it should have the same or more features than the last available Java version from last year.
