After stagnating for a couple months, I finally sat down with Let's Get Tanked! again and wrote code. Last night I resolved a bug in a 2D layout framework I've been building that was causing things not to be drawn, and I added some really cool (in my opinion) layout functionality that automates vertical and horizontal alignment of 2D elements. This is a big deal because it simplifies later coding to design menus and such. Simpler coding down the line means I'm less likely to think "man this is so tedious" and take another break.
Next up is a section of code that will allow players (and more importantly, me!) to design custom arenas. Then it'll be implementing spawn zones, followed by local multiplayer sign-in.
