I was able to get quite a bit accomplished today. I added the inventory system so you can now pick up objects and view them in your inventory.
I also changed the look of the interface so it doesn't completely rip off Space Quests UI.
I added the in-game console and have hooked up most (not everything yet) of its functionality such as volume controls, game speed, brightness sliders etc. I am going to add a graphics setting to the control panel so you can adjust the games resolution, so you can decide to play it in a window or full screen and maybe be able to turn off any other graphical feature I decide to add. Will be spending time polishing up the control panel. I am going to hold off on adding Saving and loading for now until there is some more actual data to save (instead of a couple inventory items and 2 rooms)
