Update: Player interactions, decks

Started working on the player interaction system. It's basically a system similar to the Sims. You right click on a usable item, and a context drop down menu pops up, as you can see in the above screenshot. As expected, selecting an action from within this menu, makes you walk next to the item and perform it. Some actions will be tied to skills, so a character with a high "Survival" skill for example, will set and light up a campfire faster than normal.

In other news, I started working on another building element: decks. If you have played the Sims 2, you'll know them as foundations. Decks allow the placement of different tiles on top of them, and of course different stairs will be available to make them reachable. With decks you can build things like porches and other similar stuff.

That's all for now. June will be a busy month for me so development will be slow or even halted, but I may still post about other things if I have the time.

Lastly I want to thank you for the poll votes! I wasn't expecting any attendance at all!
