Added a very basic banner, revealing the map title.
If you'd like to make me a better banner, please feel free! I probably won't fix it up until nearer the end.
100% of design complete
16x texture pack is 33% done. If Mojang supports 32x without patching, then I may switch to that resolution. Wouldn't mind finding an expert texture pack partner.
Prototyping for most simple mechanisms is done. Thanks to Jigarbov for some advice.
I have a seed, and about 5% of the landscape. Nothing "built" yet.
Unlike Mars Mission, where I created most of the textures "just in time" as I built each encounter, this time I've outlined all of my target textures and where they'll go. Creating the textures first, and then building with them already existing. Not yet sure which is the better approach, but I'll know in a few days!
