Hey everyone! Happy Thorium Thursday!
It's been a while since the last update, but I wanted to let you all know that work continues, slow but steady. The latest feature I've been working on is the Cargo Control card.
There's a lot going on here, so let me highlight what's cool about this:
Let me know what you think! This is still very much a work in progress, but it's at enough of a minimum-viable-product state that I'm ready to move on to something different.
Speaking of which, the next thing I'll be working on is the pilot screen, followed by the view screen. Once those two things are done, and a few extra features are added to the Flight Director screen, Thorium Nova will be at feature parity (plus some more features) with where it was in April 2021.
Once that work is done, I'll release the next alpha. That should provide a lot of fun things to play with while I continue adding features.
It's been a while since we had a Thorium Development Meeting. Alas, there weren't a lot of people showing up to the meetings so I decided to postpone them indefinitely. If anyone wants to do another meeting, feel free to propose a time on Discord, or send me an email and we can get one scheduled.
In lieu of those meetings, I'm planning on starting a weekly livestream on Twitch. It'll be low-key, just watching me work on Thorium Nova. Folks can chat or ask questions in the Twitch text chat and you can get a first-hand look into what goes into building this project. I'll send an update with more details when I actually get my streaming schedule figured out.
That's all for this week. I hope you and your loved ones are doing well. Remember, "you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back." ❤️
