Thumbs up NEW - FLUR Journal #4

June 29, 2016:

Finally! I'm securely moved across the US in the state of Georgia. It was quite a nasty journey. On a side note, there has rarely been a more double-talking, bait-and-switching, outright deceptive experience i've had than the cross-country transport industry. If ever something needed oversight and regulation, it's this one. Anyhow...

I'm here as of yesterday, and been resuming work on FLUR.

One thing that kept bugging me was the side screens. They just didn't have the clean, consistent look I was wanting. They still seemed cluttered and too busy.

I finished this as of yesterday (Crew Chiefs screen) and I really like it:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/71ixej4tvq...reen1.jpg?dl=0

My goal was to make something easy to read, still slick and consistent, and I think I achieved that with this screen. The Drivers screen has been given the same treatment, with a different middle background, faded slightly to allow the text to be more clear. Several other screens will be designed similarly. What do you guys think? Better? Worse?

Once these are done, the in-game racing display will be worked on. That screen (detailed in the #3 journal I believe) is already very nice, and should allow for simple viewing and choices during the race. Onward I go! More tomorrow.

Very nice! Your tweaking the screens here & there continues to improve the product.

July 6th, 2016:

Took a little time off for the holidays.

Work continues to update the screens to make them slicker and easier to read. Here's the new Garage screen where you buy your 'used' cars. It's still visually nice, but easier to read and more clear, I think:


What do you guys think?

Yeah, I'm with you on this one. But I also understand Derek is very busy. That being said, I'd really like to see this come out within a few months.

I'm very excited for this game but the months without communication or news is very discouraging. Makes me question his commitment.

Sorry about the lack of communication...been up to several things recently, along with going through lots of moving and changing house stuff. I do still plan on completing FLUR. It only has about 20% development left to go.
