This week's spoiler is... a skill for the chicken!

The intention is that the chicken, when in peril, will run away and lay an egg for reinforcements. I was thinking when the egg is hatched, it'll immediately transform into a full size chicken, which will perhaps have some random odds of spawning at varying levels. Typically, it might be around 50% of the parent chicken's level, but on rare occasion, maybe a super chicken will be born.

This week's (??????) spoiler is... interface updates!

For comparison, here's a look at the old title screen buttons.

The old interface was very dark and not really planned out well. Basically, we needed SOMETHING to work with, so I made something and we used it for years. For a long time, I intended to update it, and now I'm finally doing that. Hopefully it should work out better than before now that we have a better idea of what exactly the interface requires.

Did we ever use GSO's login buttons? We might have in v1.0.

I forgot those even existed! How awkward. We might have briefly in a dev client.

The intention is that under certain circumstances, a tumblok in distress will be able to transform into a more powerful form. Some areas might be setup to allow this transformation to occur more easily, so players would have to be on high alert to prevent it from happening.

This is still very much subject to change, but basically the idea is to make it look kinda like a trading card. Previously, it didn't really have any sort of theme or design intention - it was just a box using the same border we used for every window in the game. Anyway, I just wanted to make it a bit more pleasant to look at.

It's not very exciting, but I think it'll improve the game's overall presentation!

I felt like I didn't make enough progress last week to be worth posting this same monster again, but here's where it's at now.

This week's spoiler is... prison clothes!

In the future, it's intended that players can align themselves as heroes or rebels. Player rulers will be able to create laws for the game's towns. When rebels break those laws, heroes will have access to law enforcement options, including arresting the troublemakers.

None of this is set in stone yet, but the idea here is that arrested players will be forced to wear the prison outfit. They might also be equipped with an accessory (such as shackles) that prevents the player from changing their own equipment. There might be a few options for the prisoner once they're in jail, such as:
a) Do the time. Depending on local laws, it could be a short wait or it could be a while. Once the sentence has expired, the shackles will be removed and the player might be dumped outside of the jail cell naked (prison outfit removed, but now they can equip their old stuff).
b) Be freed by a fellow rebel. A rebel might sneak in and unlock the cell or a group of rebels might raid the prison and take out the guards. Escaped prisoners would keep the prison outfit and be easy for heroes to identify/subdue. Rebels might have to make it to a hideout to have their shackles removed.
c) Escape independently. There might be something like a tunnel that prisoners could use to get out, but it wouldn't be easy.
