Okay, so I'm dropping in here in the middle of the month. Better than not at all, right? Goals for November: 1) Shrink the map window size to accommodate a permanent on-screen "HUD"/set of contextual information windows. Disable map-clicks outside the new map window. (DONE -- accomplished with PIXI masking and some plugin magic..not exactly what I hoped for, but it IS doing the job, and I understand the entire map is drawn all the time regardless, so I don't think I'm losing much with this method) 2) Make a game page on the forums? This is very scary for me, and I don't know if I will overcome the mental block on this. 3) Design the "HUD" layout and create its background.
