4th Edition Early Access 10
Early Access #10 is now available. Here are the release notes:
The primary focus this time has been on providing solutions to all of the challenges in the book. To that end, there are now solutions for nearly all challenges in Part 1 and Part 2. There were a few where the challenge itself needed some substantial changes, and those have not been included yet. The missing ones are “Casting and Order of Operations” and “Positive or Negative” from Part 1 and “Containers,” “Generic Containers,” and “Lists of Inventory” from Part 2.
Several challenges–especially the “Hunting the Manticore” and “Fountain of Objects” challenges–were changed rather significantly to make them easier. If you gave either of those an attempt and struggled before, try the updated version again. Those are meant to be tough challenges, but the bar was probably set just a little too high.
There were a small number of other small typos and similar fixes, though far fewer than in the past. But I was able to fix all reported issues of that nature.
I expect that creating solutions will be finished by the next update.
I am still interested in feedback about the fonts and visual style. I recieved just a couple of comments on that, and want to make sure I get it right.
And as always, I’m interested in any feedback–big or small–so please don’t hesitate to reach out if you see something suspicious or flat out wrong.
