Hopes and Dreams

James: My current goal is to get Bob's hit-detection with the dirt working in a satisfactory manner. I am pretty happy with the digging behavior, but collision with the floor when gravity pulls you down from a jump or a fall still needs work.

The next goal after that is to change the dirt graphics to automatically display edge and corner tiles which update when you dig, rather than the current blad rectangles.
