Lightbulb Dev Diary #8 and 9: Recruitment and Giving Orders!

Hey all,
Yes, I know its been a bit since I posted. Been doing a few things to raise up some cash for expenses and all. Now i'm back working on this. Screen to follow:



Today I finished the Recruitment screen, which allows you to recruit new crew members for your gang, which is obviously huge. It works super smooth: just click on the recruit button on the main menu, then click on the portrait of the guy you want to recruit into your group, paying that first year's salary. That's it. It will pop back to the HQ screen with your new guy filled in.

The 3 choices rotate out and change every turn, so there's always fresh blood if you don't like the choices in a turn. You can only recruit 1 guy per turn, so careful choices have to be made, obviously.

Next i'll be setting up the action options for each of your guys, which will be pretty varied.

Thumbs up Dev Diary #9: Giving Orders

Hey all,
Another update!

I've got the order assignment in and working now. The procedure is fairly simple: Just click on a street, then on a guy's pic, then on what you want them to be doing next turn on that street. That's all there is to it! The street will stay locked until you select a different one, so if you want to assign a guy to the same street, you don't have to click it again.

In this pic, i've selected Hillside Way already (you can see the magnifying glass in the corner). Then I clicked on the mugshot of Emil Herrera. Now you select what you want him to do:


Just click on your choice. He's good with Petty Crimes (13 rating out of 20), so we'll pick him to do something petty for now. Click Petty Crimes, the window will disappear, and you can see underneath the crew member what his action is for this turn:


You're not locked in, you just click on the guy's pic again to change it.

The game will include a little Help popup that will explain each type of activity and their risks and rewards.

Thoughts?

Probably just males for now, due to art issues. But maybe later, it can fit in just fine.
