Why make the same mistake like Minetest devs and limit yourself to a very narrow set of bitmap letters instead of properly implementing Unicode and good font rendering from the beginning on?

Argh! Negative criticism! Can't withstand the power!
I would love to it personally. But I Don't know how to do it yet.
And I'm not even capable of changing the font size!

In short I already felt very incompetent now It's below this level.
BTW: the thing isn't even released it's only some test work now. The font part seems to be handled by 20 lines of code so I should be able to modify later on.

I wouldn't even worry about the font stuff if it is readable. A game is all about, GAMEPLAY!!!

I would. Don't make the same faults as MT - a gui has to be stable/reliable and resizable - like a good arrangement and scaling. A good example is the Java GUI.
Use some lib, probably - like ImGUI.

What am I working on already? You're talking of making the GUI resizable even before I made it!

Am I doing Java? Stop with java. And imgui is C++.

"What am I working on already? You're talking of making the GUI resizable even before I made it!"
- just keep it in mind ! A fixed font size for instance is a bad idea.
Java was just an example - cuz I <3 java !
"imgui is c++"
well then why dont use another c99 lib ?

I was saying the same thing.

I couldn't find any C lib for GUI (small ones, I don't need an enomous thing)
And I can already make my own GUI simply using OpenGL and C.

I found the way to change the font size, fairly easy. The guy who did it before me is really brilliant and organized.
EDIT / DEVLOG: I'm making important progress in the GUI. I understood how to place text around while taking in account it's size so this is a good point! The font size is how changeable in the config.h file.

I'm now starting to work on the render of textures in the menu, I'll create a function that places the whole menu with it's different elements.

Have a good day :D

DEVLOG: I finally made a working menu for Omicron. For now it's simple, some text and a fancy (hover animation) button that works. Simply click on play and game launches instantly. A part of the loading time is absorbed by the menu so you spend less time waiting. Optimizations are required still, but hey! it's a great new!

Image
It will obviously be improved with a background and a 'leave game' button. In the long term parameters will appear too. BTW: Check the new font with shadows :P

It'll get improved!

Play button works now!

I was think of removing the basic "stone" and replacing it only with real life rocks like basalt, marble, obsidian, andesite, limestone and chalk. It's quite a good list for now, I'll add more and maybe remove some later.

Are you going to make any YouTube videos showing your game in action? Maybe even a few animated GIFs?
You can now find my videos at BitChute: https://www.bitchute.com/channel/some_cheeky_jinuskian/

It's planned, but I'm waiting for the game to have a bit of a stable developement state, there's no point of showing things that will be outdated in a less than a Week with GIFs and Videos.

I don't know how to render a texture on a 2D surface right now. It's embarrassing. I'm gonna drop it and work on other things and hopefully release a proper update someday.

As only LMD posted a logo (and inspired me for some reason) I made the logo:

Some changes are still to be made though, especially concerning the white around it.

I like the color gradient and how simple you kept it. I would propose you too remove that grey stuff on the front face.
