OK, I’m starting to feel confident this will be complete in time for the deadline. Otherwise I guess I can save it for java4k 2013…? Started working on december 19th, based on some template posted here last year. Currently at slightly over 4k, but I have lots of things that can be removed, and made no real attempt to keep things very small. Just need to make the AI a bit more clever and have some better scenarios (probably fewer scenarios though; there are 14 now, but that is probably a waste compared to having maybe 5 good ones instead?).
Oh, I should probably come up with a name for it before submitting. At first I was planning to do something more like a Panzer General clone, so I thought of something like Panzers 4k or 4k General, but now it has diverged quite far from that anyway.
AI and scenario data/generator is using up way too much space to have nice graphics (at least at my 4k beginner skill level), but in a way that is just staying true to the genre. Maybe I can make the map look slightly better if I have a few bytes to spare.
