During the last couple of months there was not much to talk about, but now development has made a huge step forward because we have a beta version. So let me share some details about the current state of the process. I will write a more detailed blog post as well in a couple of days.
The developer who offered me help is named Kai and luckily he is an absolute pro when it comes to the things I need for the SP-Studio remake. It's impossible for me to code the remake myself, because I'd need way too much coding knowledge to pull it off without Flash. So Kai is coding the main logic behind the new SP-Studio in Angular CLI and I am trying to understand the structure to be able to work with it in the future. This way I can create the user interface myself. As I understand it so far Angular CLI can optimize the project for different devices so a mobile version will be possible. Right now the single parts are already organized in categories, they can be moved, rotate and recolored.
What's pretty amazing for me is how simple it will be for me to include a new object. Of course I still have to draw everything, but the proccess of adding a new item has been made way easier - especially for things like the freestyle collection! This means you will very very likely see more items with custom colors and a way to change the layer position.
I want to finish this little post with a new survey. While I asked about the character design and general things in the past survey this one is a very specific one about the functions (like moving and rotating objects, the text tool and full screen mode). Please take the time to answer it:
