Once I started I couldn't finish.
Following on from making the menu controls more consistent I deviated on to making the menus look better. I already had a fully working and complete menu system but it needed something.
For the last few weeks I've been working on the graphics for the menu screens. I am just about finished now.
My original plan had always been to have a menu system that felt like you were already in the game. I had put that idea aside because of the extra work on top of the game to get that working. That is what I have now done.
Plenty of other games have similar interfaces and I am pleased with my implementation. Each menu screen looks like the view inside a space ship. Not the shiniest of crafts but a more utilitarian vessel.
