I was visiting with my family this week so I didn't get much actual coding done. What I did with my time instead was read through some the code of minisec, mtsec, and rfts to get a feel for how the objects work. I was specifically interested in seeing some examples of different properties and how to use them, and also how to initially setup the objects in the game.

For this next week I will focus on getting what I've learned about these objects into code. I want to have a basic implementation of my solar system object. The solar systems will make up the "game board" so having them up and running will provide a good foundation for much of the game logic. If I have time I would like to start designing the region detection algorithm.

Tomorrow marks the official start of coding! According to my original schedule estimates I'm about a week and a half ahead of schedule. Hopefully that will help offset any unforeseen (yet probably inevitable) problems ;)
