Where I am at –
Completed the framework and have currently run through all turns in a non-update mode.
Next steps –
Go through each turns error messages and ensure they are failing for legitimate reasons. For example:
8:58 PM 1. UNIT / 1 / EQUIP / LA / SH / SS /
8:58 PM The requested armament ( ) was not found in the stockpile.
This error is caused by the fourth armament argument being blank. It is not allowed in this version of the rules and should be ignored by the program. Another issue this shook out is the actual name of the armament versus the abbreviated name. i.e. Padded Armor versus PA; the code needs to allow for either or. This requires a database change and a load of the data per item.
Once I complete this pass, then I get to start producing the next turn reports. Their are numerous changes to the reports that have to be added –
1. The Actions / Special Actions / Messages / Tasks / Construction pages of the report have never been tested and will have to be checked out.
2. The Map page has already been fixed to include the index and should be able to print when nothing is in the region. (i.e. you order a map from a City in an adjacent region).
3. Add the Character number to the Character List to allow using the number instead of the character name.
4. Add the Character list to the City report.
I have been updating the rulebook as a I have been moving along, so I post a new version of it (showing the correct syntax of the actions when I drop the turns.
