Logic World Wednesdays: The Very Colorful Edition

by @MouseHatGamesDeveloper3 years ago

Color Picker v2 - Jimmy

Last week I showed you an early version of the Color Picker menu. I’ve spent a lot of time this week polishing and improving the color picker and it’s now my favourite piece of UI in the game.

The color picker now has:

  • an HSV wheel
  • a hex code input
  • sliders for red-green-blue and hue-saturation-value
    • these can be toggled on and off individually
    • the slider colors update to reflect what changes they would cause
    • each slider has a field to manually enter a value
  • a list of saved colors
  • keyboard shortcuts

Profile Pages - Felipe

I’ve done quite a bit of work this week on the logicworld.net user profile pages, which were quite lackluster before.

The first thing I did was to add a badge system, which are shown in the bottom part of the sidebar in your profile page. Right now the only earnable badge is the ‘Verified email’ one, which you can of course earn by verifying your email address (if you signed up using a Google account you won’t need to), so go ahead and try it! In the future we will be adding more badges that you’ll be able to earn by for example purchasing the game in stores, winning contests or participating in events.

I have also added a customizable bio to your profile, which is a short paragraph of text in which you can talk a little about yourself or link to your social media (remember, Markdown is supported!)

Here’s a picture showing these two features:

You may also have noticed that there’s a number indicating the total amount of likes your posts have gotten. In the future you’ll be able to like comments as well, and those likes will contribute to your total.

In the right side of the page you’ll now also see a feed of the user’s activity, i.e. posts and comments, which you can filter and sort!

Configurable Menus - Jimmy

I’ve been working on a system that lets you adjust menus to your liking.

All Configurable Menus allow you to adjust their size, shape, and position on the screen. In the future, some menus will have additional control panel options that are specific to them. I want Logic World’s interface to be as customizable as possible, so everyone can have the menus set up how they want or need.

If you’d like to receive an email each time we post one of these blogs, you can sign up for our newsletter. Be sure also to wishlist Logic World on Steam, join the official Discord, and follow @LogicWorldGame on twitter.

See you next Wednesday!

Nice improvements! But as you might have guessed i didn’t come here only to say that. :) Why not make the saved color area a recent color area instead? I can’t imagine someone spending tons of time setting up colors they like manually, but reusing already used colors is very often needed! (recent color list could still be editable though) Another thing is that the manual hex code input box should be active when opening the menu for quick copy or paste of the color! To make things even better you could make it not complain when there’s no # in front of the hex color when pasting or when there’s some extra ones.

That’s a great idea! Thanks for the suggestion.

Another great idea, I’ll add this 👍

Who messed up the formatting? When i input a newline on edit page i expect things to post like i typed them. Reading a wall of text is not fun! Also no editing of posts yet? :)

Logicworld.net uses markdown for comment formatting, which requires you to double space your paragraphs for line breaks to actually appear.

this comment will
be on one line


this comment will

be on two lines

@pipe01 just published an update to the site that lets you edit comments, so you can fix yours now :)

I can’t wait to buy the game, any idea when it will be launched?

@JimmyDeveloper3 years ago

Summer of this year. When we’re confident of a more specific release date we will post about it here :)
