wiki:Goals for 3.4

Version 17 (modified by fizzix, 7 years ago) (diff)

--

Angband 3.4.0

See ObjectDistribution for main issues.

Timo's current views are at http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?p=60961#post60961

Also, what about game docs? 3.3.0 had a nice PDF manual from qwerty. 3.4 has RST help files - can we make them into a PDF? HTML?


Open tickets that should be fixed for 3.4

Tile effects that we can't support yet, like 2.5D walls and the wall decorations, will go to 3.5 along with possibly a reduced vision mode as exists in FA.
