More work on the Field Guide, added a start page to it. Tweaked some dynamic terrain stuff. Built a log cabin on some ice, then watched it go away when the spring thaw came.

Work on the Field Guide is progressing. As of this writing, it can now give basic details on land, landmarks, mobs, items, and a bit more detail on the player's stats. Navigation of details can be accomplished through clicking the right sidebar. Things are moving along.

Tonight, I added a much requested/needed feature to Explore!. The new Field Guide allows you to click any tile on the main display, and the score-keeping area shows what kind of land is present, what landmark, what mob is there and what item is present. Right now it just shows the name of each item and its picture. Later, I plan to allow clicking on the picture to give more detailed information. This should help players understand what is going on in the game better.

Made some minor improvements to Explore! tonight. The display of remaining Action Points has been improved. The freezing of water tiles now happens progressively over the winter(except in arctic maps), and water tiles now thaw out in the spring. That's about it.
