EPD v1.92.0 Build 2394 is out!

In EPD 1.92.0 I have added the new BiomeClusterBrowser to both the fixed and the random editor. You will now see all the most important information of a biomecluster right away for each entry, which makes – as i hope – finding the right biomecluster easier. You now are also able to search for items like ClusterName, DecorationItem names, GrassItem names, SelectionCriteria and stamp names in the Search box above. That way you can filter your list accordingly to the entered search paremeters and only these biome clusters will show…

Dev Blog: New BiomeClustersBrowser

The last few days I’ve been thinking about how to improve the BiomeClustersBrowser into something a little more helpful in regards to all the data one biomecluster can hold. So I decided to collect the most important information of the cluster and present it right away in the browser, so you can see at once, which biomecluster you want to be editing further. I also integrated a search command to search and filter the BiomeClusterList by: Names Selection Criterias Stamps Grass Decorations So now you could search for ‘RealRock’ or…

EPD v1.91.5 Build 2341 Experimental out!

In this Release I refined the UI Modules a little, so that they stretch accordingly with expanded ListBoxes. Also the Listboxes now autofit to their content. So initially it will display all list items, if possible. There’s still a max height per listbox of 500 pixels, otherwise it could happen, that the UI module runs out of bounds of the parent control. Also some little bugs got squished. 😉 See Changelog. >>Download<< 1+

EPD v1.91.0 Build 2302 Experimental is out!

This version is mainly about bugfixing and stability. But as shown in the dev blogs, some new features are in as well: Filter for EPB Browser (Random POIs setup) New Cleaner routine that should be able to clean all ’empty’ properties from a playfield.yaml Split up playfield properties into more tabs (Atmosphere & Colors, Masks) Allow to delete values from an input field to ‘reset’ value to null, e.g. if you want seed not to be written , you can now select the value in the box, hit DEL key…

Dev Blog: New Cleaner & Bugfixes

For the last few days I have been working on completely rewriting the ‘Cleaner’. This piece of code deletes all the empty properties before writing a yaml file. It already existed in EPD before, but it wasn’t very reliable and did not clean every single property. Now it should work very reliably and really remove all empty properties from the Yaml. Before I also had to ‘restore’ (reinitialize) the playfield object again in order to beeing able to enter values again after saving a file. With the new cleaner this…

EPD v1.90.1 Build 2282 Experimental is out!

This is EPD 1.90.1 experimental (EPD 2 alpha). Please understand, this is a work-progress-version version with some rough edges, but I think it can’t hurt to have some feedback and bugreports to be able to react as fast as possible when some breaking changes show up that I might not have been aware of. Please let me know what you think of the UI and the new mechanics and what needs to be added/changed. Now is the time, as I’m knee-deep in the guts of EPD and reworking everything from…
