I'm thinking GUI is something I start to improve when I know the gameplay would need serious work. I really didn't have to improve Teemu's gui or change fonts but I did it, because then I wouldn't have to handle difficult problems (yet).

I need to change that and leave GUI as the last thing to finish when everything else is in place. Even started it today I browsed through some of the notes left in source code for later fixing. I also got a kind of revelation in the usual problems with Creature and Player classes which I guess could really inherit from such a simple base class that there would never be need to check the player instance inside Creature class (from which Player is derived in my roguelike projects). Yet I'm wondering what kind of base class would that be?

About the unfinished features. Maybe I should even count the estimated time to finish them so I could possibly allocate the development time for Teemu, you know, using a calendar. Then again.. maybe it's too much.
