Big things here are the modifiers system and tooltips overhaul. I have other changes I’ve deliberately left out so they can be put in a 0.4.0 release with more severe breaking changes. There might be a 0.3.2 before then fixing any bugs I’ve determined are in the engine after looking through Jacorb’s game’s code

[0.3.1] - 2022-04-23

Added

  • Render utility methods that always return JSX Elements

Changed

  • BREAKING Tooltips overhaul
    • Tree Nodes no longer have tooltips related properties
    • Tooltips can now be added to any feature with a Vue component using the addTooltip function
    • Any tooltip can be made pinnable by setting pinnable to true in the addTooltip options, or by passing a Ref<boolean> to a Tooltip component
    • Pinned tooltips have an icon to represent that. It can be disabled by setting the theme’s showPin property to false
  • Modifiers are now their own features rather than a part of conversions
    • Including utilities to display the current state of all the modifiers
  • TabFamilies’ options function is now optional
  • Layer.minWidth can take string values
    • If parseable into a number, it’ll have “px” appended. Otherwise it’ll be un-processed
  • TreeNodes now have Vue components attached to them
  • createResourceTooltip now shows the resource name
  • Made classic and aqua theme’s feature-foreground color dark rather than light

A couple small bug fix patches!

[0.3.2] - 2022-04-23

Fixed

  • Clickables and several other elements would not register clicks sometimes, if the display is updating rapidly
  • createLayerTreeNode wasn’t using display option correctly

[0.3.3] - 2022-04-24

Fixed

  • Spacing between rows in Tree components
  • Computed style attributes on tooltips were ignored
  • Tooltips could cause infinite loops due to cyclical dependencies

This is a pretty big update! Modifiers are a lot better, saves are smaller, and several things just got cleaned up/improved. HOWEVER, part of these changes will make most existing saves incompatible/error. Do NOT go beyond 0.3.X in a game that’s already live unless you account for these changes in fixOldSave .

[0.4] - 2022-05-01

Added

  • Saves can now be encoded in two new options: plaintext and lz compressed, determined by a new “saveEncoding” property in projInfo
    • Saves will be loaded in whatever format is detected. The setting only applies when writing saves
  • createModifierSection has new parameter to override the label used for the base value
  • createCollapsibleModifierSections utility function to display createModifierSections in collapsible forms

Fixed

  • Saves manager would not clear the current save from its cache when switching saves, leading to progress loss if flipping between saves
  • Layer.minWidth being ignored
  • Separators between tabs (player.tabs) would not extend to the bottom of the screen when scrolling
  • Tree nodes not being clicked on their edges

Changed

  • BREAKING No features extend persistent anymore
    • This will break ALL existing saves that aren’t manually dealt with in fixOldSave
    • Affected features: Achievement, Buyable, Grid, Infobox, Milestone, TabFamily, and Upgrade
    • Affected features will now have a property within them where the persistent ref is stored. This means new persistent refs can now be safely added to these features
  • Features with option functions with 0 required properties now don’t require passing in an options function
  • Improved the look of the goBack and minimize buttons (and made them more consistent with each other)
  • Newly created saves are immediately switched to
  • TooltipDirection and Direction have been merged into one enum
  • Made layers shallow reactive, so it works better with dynamic layers
  • Modifier functions all have more explicit types now
  • Scaling functions take computables instead of processed computables

Removed

  • Unused tsParticles.d.ts file

Documented

  • modifiers.ts
  • conversions.ts

[0.4.1] - 2022-05-10

Added

  • findFeatures can now accept multiple feature types
  • excludeFeatures can now be used to find features with a feature type blacklist
  • All the icons in the saves manager now have tooltips

Changed

  • All touch events that can be passive now are
  • Layers’ style and classes attributes are now applied to the tab element rather than the layer-tab
  • Saving now always uses lz-string, and saveEncoding has been renamed to exportEncoding
    • The property will now only affect exports, and defaults to base64 so exports can be shared in more places without issues
  • Buyables can now have their onClick/purchase function overwritten

Fixed

  • Arrays in player were not being wrapped in proxies for things like NaN detection
  • Error when switching between saves with different layers
  • Links would sometimes error from trying to use nodes that were removed earlier that frame
  • createModifierSection would require modifiers to have revert and enabled properties despite not using them
  • Tab buttons would not use the style property if it was a ref
  • Typings on the Board vue component were incorrect
  • Offline time would always show, if offlineLimit is set to 0
  • Buyables will now call onPurchase() when cost and/or resource were not set
  • Presets dropdown wouldn’t deselect the option after creating the save

Documented

  • feature.ts

[0.4.2] - 2022-05-23

Added

  • costModifier to conversions
  • onConvert(amountGained) to conversions

Changed

  • BREAKING getFirstFeature has a new signature, that will lead to improved performance
  • trackResetTime is now intended to be used with a reset button
  • regularFormat handles small numbers better
  • Slider tooltips now appear below the slider, not above
  • Node’s mutation observers now ignore attributes. This shouldn’t have issues with links/particle effect positions, but prevents a lot of unnecessary node updates
  • OptionsFunc no longer takes its S type parameter, as it was unnecessary. Layer options functions now have proper this typing
    • Several functions have been updated to take BaseLayer instead of GenericLayer, to allow them to work with this inside layer options functions

Fixed

  • Particle effects and links would not always appear on reload or when switching layers
  • Particle effects and links no longer appear in wrong spot after nodes are added or removed
  • Collapsibles having wrong widths on the button and collapsed content sections
  • Additive modifiers with negative values appeared like “±” instead of “-”
  • Buyables’ onPurchase was not being called
  • Reset button would display “Next:” if the buyMax property is a ref
