As of right now, we have smoothed out the walking ... instead of one step per 'tick' (one second), players can take multiple steps and hopefully we will be able to adjust the speed depending on what terrain you are walking on.
We are focused on user interface; the new screen size does not allow for the current sidebar and chat window, so everything will need to be displayed over the map.
When you click your own player, your inventory will popup. Click an item, and a menu for that item will popup where you can wear or drop it.
When you press ENTER, the console will popup where you can see the chat - I'd like for dragon to display chat over player's heads, so the console will be optional.
We want it to be possible to the entire game from this text console, so if you typed "/wear L0" it would wear the player hat or if you typed "/drop L0" it would drop the hat from your inventory.
Work is being done and I am going to say I want an update online by Thanksgiving; I actually want to say Halloween but I am not positive if can be ready by then so I don't want to say it will be.
