Development during week 41-2006
As I said, we have continued working on the inventory. It is now possible to drop items, view information about items and filter items in the list. It is still not possible to eat or use items because we haven't decided how the items' categories are going to be sent to the client. The categories are created in the item editor and works like a tree structure (such as "Flowers" being a sub-category of "Plants" which is a sub-category of "General"), and not hard-coded in the client, so the tree must either be a part of the client installation or sent when players connect to the server.

We have also added "tabs" to the chat panel. These are used to separate different chat channels from each other, similar to IRC. For example, if you use the /tell command to send a message to a person, that message will appear in a new tab, and if you have that tab selected the game will automatically prefix "/t <char name>:" to all messages. Very convenient, if you ask me Wink

We have also created a new editor for "global editing" in the area editor. This editor is used to name areas and add spawn points for items (and soon also for NPCs).

Planned development during week 42-2006
This week we will continue on the editors, correct the mentioned problem with item categories and maybe add some initial item actions. We will maybe also begin to construct a trading GUI, but that depends on if we feel that we have come up with a good solution about "how to trade".
