    Base window styles are now functional. The other ones use special SPR resources included with the object, which will need to be loaded into the wall resource provider.


    (base window styles being normal sized doors, like the archway)

    And it is Ever Completely Playable like before?

    Never said it would be easy, but I think it'll be fun to make and play.

    No its rendered by SimAntics which is the rendering system or engine from The SIms Online but he made the code and made it work.

    SimAntics is the engine of the "sim movements and actions". XNA is the graphics engine and C# its language. Everything is in real time from the game, you can see some videos in previous pages!

    Custom wall styles set by objects now work!
    Check out those bay windows and the normal ones as well ;) I'm not sure what that door over there's problem is, I guess I'll give it a lookup.

    Everything I post here is from the project dollhouse client. We are writing a custom engine using XNA as a base, as the original game engine cannot be used. SimAntics is the system driving the game's object logic, which we are writing an interpreter. I should probably rename the thread to "Simantics & World Development" to avoid people confusing SimAntics with the world rendering.

    Fixed that door... It was using 23 instead of 22 as its "load the sprite from my iff" value.

    Q2 2015 is just a little conservative...

    Uh, that probably came out wrong. What I meant to say is that no, it definitely will not take that long to have a playable multiplayer beta ready. If I can keep making breakthroughs at the same pace you should be able to play something by the end of this summer, but definitely before 2015.

    Work on walls is nearly complete, but I'm planning to restructure the world system a bit to improve things like slots and actually use the dynamic object system for speed improvements. Next up is dynamic walls cutaway based on mouse position, but cutaway for specific rooms won't be possible until I implement the room map. After that I might do multilevel support (second floor hype!) as part of the restructure.

    Sorry.. I don't mean to be rude or picky, but is there a problem with these doors/arches, as well?
    By the way, I can't believe how far this has come in the relatively short amount of time since the first post of this thread. This is really great! Awesome job.

    I'd say late 2014 or early 2015, judging by the progress.
