Since the last update we began making progress towards further developing the game. It was decided that rather then wasting time on an in game editor that we should use Ogitor for building the level, at which point we can simply load levels into the game. From my perspective it takes a lot of work off my shoulders and means that world builders can start making the level straight away simply by downloading the editor program.

Since starting the project I have been experimenting with different libraries and have come to some conclusions. When it comes to user interface libraries I’m coming to the point where I can see a lot of flaws with MyGUI and am considering to switch back to CEGUI. There are a few things that MyGUI can’t do such as correctly aligning base UI elements and although MyGUI is initially easier to use, it has too many limitations to make it practical for everyday use.
