Single Player Multiplayer Since my promotion, I don't have the bandwidth to continue single player so I'm retooling for multiplayer. So far the testing looks good. Since I already have the levels completed/workflow animations/tailored assets, the transition from that perspective is coming along nicely.....so far. The photos below are teaser from the Sci-fi portion of the demo I'm working on. Hopefully I will have it ready by next week.
This is a snippet from the original game. I have to modify the levels to avoid crowding between the players and AI movements. I lightened the video because originally I was going for a dark, claustrophobic feel like dead space. This level is a fuel repository in space but now it will be planet side. The weapon & shield system is charge based, meaning every time you take damage or fire a weapon it slowly drains your reactor. So you have to closely monitor the Kinetic Shields and weapon discharge since you can only recharge your Arc after each level. I may not implement this in the current game.
My family and Job kept me away for a couple of months, Im back to development. I forgot a lot of stuff....wow. Below are images from a mission called Air Depot. The other two missions are The Plains of Homeyness (desert environment) and Descent (Cavern environment). Now that I have a baseline for the environment, I'm continuing to develop a multiplayer solution........that actually works. I will also try to have a old Air Depot link, its buggy but youll get the idea of what I'm trying to create for WebGL.
Took a break from Multiplayer (still having issues) to play around with the visual ambiences. Will touch up the audio later in the week. Also a new video should be uploaded soon, adding anther feature.
Here is a video from last week. I was very pleased with the performance especially since I have not baked anything yet. I got sick kiddos so hopefully I can work on the game next weekend. (Note: Ambiences (lighting and music) work in progress).
I know. For what its worth, not bad for doing this on a 2011 computer..... My wife's computer crashed and so she decided to use my Intel I7, 16GB RAM, 1 TB SSD, 13.5" screen, Platinum Surface Pro 4.....for class...
