Lightbulb Dev Diary #10: Turn Engine begun!

Hey all,
Just a quick update: The main screen buttons and such are finished and working, and all seems to be good. I've now started on the 'Turn' engine and processing your commands, paying contracts, advancing time, etc.

There will be 12 'months' or 'turns' in a game year, and each year contracts for your lawyers, judge bribes, and crew salaries get deducted. Street parameters may or may not change as well.

Each turn, the action or crime you select will be processed and the results displayed in a 'book'. The commands will stay the same each turn unless you change them, so if you're sticking with the same thing, you won't have to reclick everything every turn.

More to come very soon as I finish this up!

Working on this again after a hiatus. My current RPG project finished up. Sorry for the break, but now my intent is to focus on this until I get it up and going decently well.

- I added a function that displays the lawyer on the main screen under the icon toolbar if you hire one, along with his yearly salary.
- Changed out the popup graphic for giving orders to something slicker.
- Changed out some music in the game to fit the theme better.

More screens and updates coming very shortly!

Continuing onward with functions that happen once a game year, and knocking them out. One of the things about Mafia Capo is that nothing stays the same forever. The game world is changing constantly, and you have to adjust.

The tasks finished include:

- Your crew increasing stats -- and possibly salary -- depending on their age and development curve. This will be displayed each year so that you can see their progress.

- The street themselves: Their economic climate and police presence can change each game year, so you have to keep a close eye on things.

- Payment of lawyers/judges/crew: Gotta keep your guys paid!

- Judges/lawyers can retire, pass away or whatever and be replaced. Rare, but it can happen.

All of these are finished and verified working. Onward!
