Feb 8
* Got centripetal and acceleration forces to work on stuff left on the floor, next is on crew!

Feb 7
* Fixed path finding drawing lines to continuous line, finally.
* Started working on momentum and centripetral forces inside ship, accelerating and turning your ship will affect lots of things inside, so turning very fast can hurt your crew, make things fly inside your ship like stuff not properly stored or left on the floor.

Feb 6

Feb 5
* Fixed more bugs! and some graphical issues

Feb 4
* Refactoring and re-ordering all debug menus

* Bug fixing, tracing very tricky bugs

Jan 24
* Refactoring code for speed, finally was able to reduce the time it takes to create the galaxy map, it used to take about 3-4 minutes and after threading it and improving some code it takes about 5 seconds now, about 30,000 to 40,000 worlds are created in those 5 seconds now, problem is now when starting a new game all memory has to cleaned, and this takes again about 3-4 minutes, still working on improving speed.
* Refactoring memory cleaning code, after more work I finally speed up the process and it takes about 10 seconds instead of 3-4 minutes, so the whole universe creation takes about 15 seconds

November 16
* Continued working on localization

November 13
* Continued working on localization

November 12
* Continued working on localization

November 11

* Settting more localization strings

November 10
* bug fixes

November 9
* Finished designing the new localization framework, testing all day how to optimize the process

November 8
* Started working on localization, now I just made the first steps to allow different language packs in game, before it was only english thought not planning yet to translate the game to other languages but at least it supports that.

November 7
* Had to make a hard decision, use my own personal font or use standard true type fonts, saddly the only option that I have if I want multiple language support is to use standard true type fonts (ttf) since I won't be able to make a complete font set for all languages in the world, so the easiest way is to use standard ttf fonts. It will take many months if I create a font by myself but if in the future I have the time to do so I can still change it to my font version, for now I am changing the font type in all the game , it will take a couple of days to adjust it everywhere.

November 6
* Changed the way air works with the introduction of several new factors like CO, CO2 and nitrogen, now pressure is also visible in the new UI design, and O2 display changed to show up the percentage of oxygen and other gases, this is very important when not being in your ship, exploring will not be as easy as moving from one place to another without caring at all about the environment
* Pressure also changes when temperature changes and is displayed in the new UI
* Systems will try to compensate when possible by adding more nitrogen/oxygen mix and if your tanks have enough supplies, if not one or the other may go up. High levels of oxygen doesn't impact crew members for a few days, but many accidents may happen in high levels of oxygen concentrations 

November 5
* Started rebalancing all in game units, water consumption, oxygen and other factors to become closer to real life values

November 4
* Added new UI elements to show up CO, CO2 , pressure and other things.

November 3
* Added CO emissions when burning, this will affect crew members if enough CO is build in ship may even kill them, air purifier modules cleans it but if fire spreads it may not be able to keep up
* Added CO2 emissions from crew members, air purifiers lowers the amount over time, large amounts of CO2 can kill crew members over long exposure, and an addecuate CO2 level is required to do farming, diverse vegetables and other things absorb CO2 from the module where the farming is happening, having a too low CO2 levels affect food production
* Added pressure in modules, so it goes down if breaches happen, crew members will try to get a space suit of run away if pressure is lost
* Added new temporary new UI elements to show up the CO, CO2 and pressure levels.
* Enhanced temperature contro, now it decreases when air pressure is lost to space temperature level, usually below 0 degrees

November 2
* Some minor bug fixings
* Started working on some new mechanics and doing research

November 1
* Added nutrients for farming, it is consumed when doing farming activities per system to keep food production going.
* Added new functionality to hydroponic systems, lights now degrade over time but take very long time to burn out and lights turn on only when food is in production in the proper line

October 30
* Added new system panels to hydroponic systems, new icons and electronic panels added
* many bug fixes
* Adjusting UI to provide more space

October 28
* Testing many sybsystems, found some bugs

October 27
* Replaced some icons placeholders with real icons
* UI enhancements and more usability enhancements, the good thing about having been developing the game for so long is that I forgot many things since I started and now that I am testing I find some stuff hard to understand so I have to remake the UI to make it easier to understand without having to write a tutorial about it

October 25
* Refactoring planet code
* Fixed UI tool tips bugs
* Enhanced UI design

October 23
* Refactoring code

October 21

July 21
* Working on star systems

July 20
* Continued working on star system generation according to star mass and types so planets are distributed in a more believeable way

July 19
* Reworking planet and moon definitions , now all will be called worlds and new dependencies will be created like which world is tied to other worlds and stars so you can have twin planets and multiple moons as needed, before it was all locked to a specific number of planets and moons only to single orbits
* Change logic of the game so now it won't procedurally generate worlds and star systems as needed, this was very convenient and saves memory but it creates a problem in which story can't be build around star origins or knowledge of other star systems without having to generate those systems on the go, so now it is more memory intensive but allows deep story telling and allows to keep track of all the discoveries made by the player. In general there will be around +-100,000 worlds that can be visited by the player
* Working on star system creation to follow known real information of star sytems distributions as much as possible to have a believeable galaxy instead of using just random procedural data.

July 17

July 8
* Working on starmap UI interace

July 7
* Testing new UI elements
* still working on camera transitions

July 6
* Working on camera transitions

July 5
* Still working on starmap, large scale system seems to be too much to handle in memory and I want to avoid paging to disk so will have to limit the number of systems that the player will visit since it will be impossible to keep track of each star system if we have 400 billion stars, unless all are procedurally generated and don't care about keeping track of player's discoveries which is not something I like to do.

July 4
* Reworking starmap , rescaled again the universe finally looks like it is going into the right direction

July 3
* Working on starmap scaling and UI

July 2
* Back to work, continued implementing radiation exposure

June 17
* Continued radiation exposure and effects on crew members
* during the week I won't have much connectivity so updates will be slow

June 16
* Started a new character effect, radiation exposure, more details soon.

June 15
* Refactoring zoom levels in the galaxy , it became very difficult to manage different everything with only one zoom level once things started to get too small

June 14
* Got star generation to work fast enough so there is no wait time, still need to work the next few days on the UI

June 13
* Still working on the galaxy map

June 12
* Reworking galaxy map, scaling sectors for better performance at this moment

June 11
 * Still working on galaxy map, trying to find better ways to zoom into quadrants and get better feel of the universe

June 10
 * Still working on galaxy streaming , testing different solutions for speed

June 9
* Still working on galaxy streaming so stars are created as needed in threads so you can navigate the universe without having the wait for a loading process

June 8
* redoing galaxy map with high resolution image and adding a new procedural logic for star creation and planet orbits

June 7
* Misc social interaction bug fixes
* Started changing all position into a universe position, so things can be tracked in very much details accross the whole universe in very precise way, before it was very innacurate and only tracked the player's ship, with the new system stars, comets, planets, moons, any ship and anything will be tracked to the last decimal point in the universe.
* Started procedural galaxy creation with the new starmap dimensions

June 6
* bug fixing

June 5
* Finished animation transitions between outside/inside views

* several UI bug fixes

June 4
* Started adding transition animation between outside and inside view of ships

June 3
* Refactored warp code and added more functionality
* Warp travel animation
* UI bug fixes
* Crew members will get bored and get some mood penalty if continues to eat same stuff over and over without variety

June 2
* New pixel shader effect for warping
* Still working on space allocation concept
* With the new shader effect started working on warp animation and speed

June 1
* Still calculating and partitioning space in real terms, didn't think it will take that much time to do, but it is coming nicely and better than before, now it will make more sense to pack enough resources for long distances, one thing that bothered me a lot was the travel constraint, which I didn't like, so with the new system the constraint will go away in general terms, you will be able to traverse space as desired but it won't be optimal since you will miss the jump gates but if you want you will be able to do so, and that's the big change and size of the universe in Junkcraft Armada, thought it may come up with billions of stars with no purpose... that's something I need to find a solution. The reason of the initial constraint was memory allocation and how everything interact together, the new one removes that constraint and will be procedurally generated following many of the known physics of the universe, the only constraint left is time, you will have limited time to finish the game so you will have to think better the way you travel the universe or it will be too late to accomplish your main mission.

* Reworking planets and other celestial bodies representation in the galaxy so procedural content will be created following the shape of the galaxy


Mar 31
* Rethinking space and recalculating space dimension, just to bring a more real outer space definition
* Started working on expanding the universe well beyond the current size to accomodate a more realistic size of the universe

Mar 30
* Balancing temperature effect on crew
* Taking showers can help regulate your crew temperature, if the ambient temperature is too high a shower will refresh any crew member taking a bath, on the other side if the ambient temperature is too low a shower will increase body temperature too
* UI enhancements an relocating some items inside crew window so I can have more space to add more new cool stuff
* Added a lot of new UI tooltips information, game is getting bigger and it may be difficult to understand everything without some additional help

Mar 29
* Adding more tooltips and descriptions

* Started working on the UI for relationships, so you can see how good or bad is the relationship between your crew and others, relationships improve over time by sharing drinks, over dinner and other activities
* Many small bug fixes
* Social interation can now happen while drinking or eating standing or on tables.
* Started working on crew preferences, so when free some crew members may hang out with best friends and friends instead of trying to talk to the people they hate.
* Added 8 new traits, some affect how relations are build over time , added trait ability to disarm enemies in close combat or resist disarm
* Refactored drinking code, alcoholic drinks now affect body temperature, if too cold a drink will help raise your crew temperature until certain level of drunkness, and if it is too hot it will drop the temperature to a comfortable level until certain level of drunkness, in both cases once the drunkness level is off limits it will just drop your temperature over time because of accelerated heat loss.
* Balancing relationship effects , after one day people became very close friends and should be over time, adjusting and testing values to make it more difficult and make a difference

May 25
* Bug fixes, some UI enhancements for robots needs
* Working on social interaction between crew members when having drinks
* Started working on relationships between crew members and others, I did the skeleton module a few months back but didn't have the time to implement the whole module, now it is getting into shape, find your nemesis, enemies, your best pals for example and see how your crew interact

May 24
* Adding more AI actions, now crew members pick up beer and find a good place to sit and drink, even chat with others if they are seating too around increasing mood if they get well together too.
* Added new animations when drinking alcohol, so now you can see what they are drinking
* Crew members who drink too much and over the limit will pass out and drop to the floor, only after sleeping they will be able to recover and back to normal with a headache or course.

* Now, showers consumes water
* Enhanced AI, crew will look for food in a smarter way and pick up the best item according to their liking for eating
* Refactoring food inventory, so players can see how much food is left on-board per item type
* UI bug fixes
* Added a new method for self cleaning when a shower is not available by using cleaning towels

May 15
* UI enhanced, changed all screens now and gun's stats is displayed and compared to current loaded gun so players can easily see if the other gun is better than the current one and decide
* Refactored guns ammo type and some minor bug fixes
* Surprise! working on hygiene, so next step is to add showers as upgrade systems to the ship, or other methods of cleaning, this can affect how crew members interact and affect mood, a too smelly crew member may cause a lot of disconfort to others! and a few more traits added related to hygiene.

May 14
* moving forward, stacking is working fine now, now enhancing UI to handle multiple pages of items, specially for food storage, initially was all hidden from player but now is all visible so UI needs to be enhanced.
* UI enhancements , durability of guns is now being displayed, working on adding a new way to compare current vs another gun on screen so users can easily see what is better for them

May 13
* stacking still... needs some more work to get it ready

May 12
* stacking staking... still working on that...

May 11
* Still working on optimal ingredient gathering and best paths to go and get them before cooking
* Optimized decision making, when a task is not possible because the target location is unreachable the crew member will do something else instead of getting stuck with the same thing in mind. Very useful when doors get locked or some parts of the ship get damaged and unreachable.
* food storage bug fixes and automatic stacking
* Started working on a way to stack items manually through UI and unstacking when needed

May 10
* Still working on cooking and handling of food from storage so crew can pull proper ingredients when cooking
* Refactoring harvesting and food management code to allow generic item stacking when possible, now item stack is configurable as per item type so you can stack a lot of seeds while for bigger items stacking will be smaller, example per slot you can have 6 bottles of beer or 120 seeds.
* Refactoring farming into different threads for performance
* Working on ingredients for cooking prioritization

May 9
* Food is now easily stackable and crew members will make stacks when harvesting food for easy transportation, also free up a lot of memory when using stacks
* Food consumption works now with stacks
* Started working on cooking

May 8
* Working on a way to stack items for easy management, after having a few hundred potatoes around in my ship it became apparent that stacking is needed

May 7
* Still working on order management and processing
* Farming can now receive orders for different vegetables, so scheduling a planting workflow is very easy
* Refactoring and creating a new inventory tracking system so orders can quickly check availability of produce
* Crew now follow produce orders  accordingly, so if you want to have 10 tomatoes they will make sure your indoor farming module production runs as needed so less stuff gets spoiled and wasted

May 6
* Still working on orders window and the processing of orders made by the player on systems for cooking, crafting and others

May 5
* More UI enhancements
* Started working on cooking and recipes , cooking skill level will determine what can be cooked and the quality of the food
* Added wine and a few more ingredients and food so there will be a large number of items that can be cooked or brewed

May 4
* Optimized path finding and reduce unnecessary steps, crew walks using more straight lines instead of doing a lot of unnecessary turns
* Optimized farming procedures
* Indoor farming system modules now keep the last thing that was planted so crew members can plant the same vegetable over and over
* Added new machine, threadmill, so your crew can run on threadmills and recover some fitness, fitness decay over time without proper exercise so keep up your crew happy and fit with machines, crew can also get fit by running around if no machines are available but they may not get much joy/fitness by doing that only since a threadmill provides different jogging routines.
* Balancing growing time of vegetables
* Added all food items as like/hate item  , so giving someone to eat that likes will give a mood bonus while giving somthing that hates will give a mood penalty
* Now farming consumes water from your ship reserves
* Added task priority management, so crew members will be able to be assigned to more than one area to manage idle time better by doing other activities when finishing one
* Added new UI for multi-task assignment
* Refactored crew management and assignment to align to red alert status, so now crew members will stop doing non important tasks and change to high priority tasks

May 3
* Some more bug fixing, vegetables now grow properly and added a few more types
* Crew stores food in food containers when available so spoilage is slower

May 2
* Bug fixings on AI while interacting with other primary survival things, like going to eat , sleep or running from places with no oxygen
* Food spoilage and harvesting balancing

May 1
* Adjusting AI crew desires and trying to align work with schedule
* AI fixing to take into account capacity of food storage and inventory management for hauling food

Apr 30
* Created farming skill table, higher experience can give better yields and faster sowing and planting, while low skill may even return awful harvesting and low quality.
* Added vegetables growing cycle in indoor farming machines
* Started working in the AI so they your crew can store properly ready to eat/cook vegetables in a proper storage compartment

Apr 29
