Thanks for the update! Is there a set date for when combat will be implemented?

No problem! :) Is there a particular feature or type of functionality you're interested in? I don't have specific dates for anything at the moment, but from here on out I plan to gradually build out the combat systems along with everything else.

(1 edit) (+1)

The battle system works pretty well, now all you need to do is put back the minimap, the level system, the possibility of running away from the battles (except bosses), etc.

Thanks Ofihombre, great to hear that it's working well. And yep, hopefully I can get these other things added in the somewhat near future. :)
