Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
iOS Game, map discovery feature
Hi guys, I want to create a small feature in my game that will allow a player to discover the map, currently I'm using cocos2d, with the tiled map support, basically I want to achieve something that was implemented in starcraft 1, when you have an undiscovered map, to discover the map you just send an unit to discover the specific portions of the map, my plan is to create two types of map state: 1 visible, 2. was discovered but currently no units are around so that portion of map shows the content that was visible last time, and 3 the undiscovered map, which should be all black.
If you guys have any resources related to this topic please let me know :), I want to get as much info as possible about this topic before starting the work on it.
Huge thanks !
