[dev] director box « Tidepool News

(17 days till alpha 3 — 109 days till beta — 219 days till gold)

I’ve been finishing the “director” box, which is the primary UI for coding your agents in Tidepool.  As you can see, it has four panes … agents, properties, rules, and timeline.  In Tidepool, you hire and fire agents in a story, which lets you choose which of your sketches becomes codable.  You can then use the director to add & change properties (variables) and rules (methods) in each agent.  The timeline shows recent messages involving that agent (or future ones).

You can also do all of your coding in the message bar (command line).  The director is meant to be an easy place to see the big picture.  In other news, today’s podcast was about publicity … audience, outlets, message.
