Some odds and ends, a nice feature, and a bit of trouble. And the most distracting thing ever!

Let's pretend we care about that inefficiency in drawingOrder. Also a momentary loss of momentum.

I don't usually predict an outcome but today I think something good is going to happen. Let's find out.

Today, more refactoring to remove connections between dungeon objects and their tiles. And, as always, some thinking.
(Jun 7, 2021)
Two starting ideas: Quest, and removing duplication in the dungeon objects. These are not unrelated. And: as so often happens, we go in a surprising direction.

Maybe some wind for my sails. A need for better notes. An idea from Bryan's experiment with Unity. A thought about apps without programming. Everything is hopeless. Not necessarily in that order.

I am really tired of this game. I think I understand why. Is there anything I can do about it?

Doors, or I'll know the reason why! Just in: Ron bites bear!

Let's advance the game, and try to advance our 'making' tech at the same time. This just in: Bear bites Ron.

What are you doing, Ron, how do you do it, and most of all, WHY?

Let's set some direction. I'm concerned that I'm off track on what is of value to work on. Possibly it's residual fear from decades ago.

I think we'll do a bit more on our 'Making App', the part of our code that helps us make the 'Shipping App', the product we ship. (We decide to bless this effort.)

One more challenge in the class/method finder, then maybe we'll think about what we actually need in our Making App.

I've had an idea about a change--perhaps an improvement--to the class/method reporter. As I write this, even I don't know what happens next.

More work on our nascent Making App. Dave1707 has some interesting tricks in his programs. And we have a fine small example of refactoring 'legacy' code.
(May 25, 2021)
Dave1707 from the Codea forum provided an interesting program. I would like to bring it under control.

Turns out we do a number of small but nice, and somewhat interesting, things. Not much stumbling, sorry. I know you love to see me mess up.

Let's press on a bit with our learning level. And, I have an idea that may be a bit difficult to implement. Let's hope so.

'With a little help from my friends', my tests are now fast. All of us are greater than any of us. This is important.

A bit more on the Learning Level, I think, but I'd really like to make some progress on untangling some mistakes, er, learning opportunities in the code.
