First post for me and some info

Rikard here, working as the tools programmer in Zeal Studios.
I feel the urge to fill out the empty void of this development blog.

I just want to share some info about what I'm working on at the moment
and what I have done so far.

PackCreator
This is a commandline program used for packing assets together into one file.
Mainly we use this to skip opening all the files (which can stress the operating system and create slow-downs).

Force-/Teambuilder
Since Cause Of War strongly emphasizes customability, we (and the players) will use this tool to create own teams with squads.
This tool is not finished yet, but I'm currently working on it as we speak (just needed a break).

Level-editor
The level-editor is used in-house (meaning it will not reach the public, not at first atleast).
Currently the team-builder is prioritized over the level-editor so it's not finished either.
Tho the work will continue as soon as I'm done with the team-builder.

I'll update with some pictures later on when stuff begins to come together.

Now we're of to work again...
