    I've got nothing particular to add beyond what alms and Laurent said. There is a "big directions" thread back there a ways, but like alms said, best to do a few small things first to familiarize yourself with the code before jumping into something really big. Once you get to the "something big" stage, we'll be very happy to give you feedback on priorities, alternatives, etc. But the most important thing is to do something that you like and will get gratification from. That way you'll avoid burn-out.

    Well, the reason I didn't suggest that was the interface overhaul doc was going to cover much of the econ and main map issues. The Encyclopedia/Help interface would be a good "big item" to start on if you're willing to wait for the overhaul doc.

    You may also want to look at this thread: http://apolyton.net/forums/showthrea...hreadid=149454
    It's not big and there are quite a few poiners about things to do inside.

    There's also the option of replacing the borders wich are currently lines drawn in swing by an overlay image (I still have some tiles alms drew somewhere on my disk - I only changed the selection cursor). This one should be relatively easy but I've never found the strength to map the various tiles to each corner type.

    As far as I know, no, there isn't anything like that, though Mark may correct me. I'll start working on an interface overhaul document, but that could take several days, so my best suggestion would be to take a look at this thread and select a feature that you want to implement. Personally, I'd start with some small ones and do a few of those before committing to something large. That assumes Mark has sent you the latest code via email, if not, email him about it. I'm sure he's got other things to say about it as well.

    Well, only if he wants them, of course.

    And if you really like doing interfaces, i've got an interface overhaul proposal (still haven't posted the whole thing yet) that you might be interested in implementing.

    started a topic 'allo

    My apologies if I'm posting a hello in the wrong place. But, hello! I'm a professional Java programmer who loves designing Swing interfaces who happened to stumble upon the Clash project. Clash encompasses a bunch of ideas I had actually been thinking on myself, so I thought I should try to lend a hand here.
