First off I'd like to say I'm glad you decided to pick this up again. This new version is much easier gameplay wise. No fishing regions, no win condition, no beacon. Not sure I like that it's so simple in gameplay but it's at least a step away from the overly cluttered versions that were before.
I'm not 100% on the regularity of the gameplay as it is, and it doesn't seem like anyone else is either, so I could try putting together a slightly different gameplay schematic. Then we could compare that to the existing version and see which will work out best. After that, I don't want to do any more 'overhauls'; and will get this finalised in terms of graphics when the gameplay is stable.
