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...
Finally starting to have some fun rather than it being a job. I'm starting to turn the exterior of the Air Depot facility from concept to an actual level. In a week or two this will probably look different as it progresses. I'm also updating the controller, getting a weird bounce when reloading and make movements less clunky.
Man, having so fun its crazy. Here is another snippet of the entrance to the air depot facility. This weekend I will start updating the controller and the AI. I will also take another crack at multiplayer.
The video below is the final region........the desert. This is not optimized nor finalized. The AI animal movements are kicking my butt, I may have to invest in a AI system. I have to figure out how to make the character less clunky when either changing directions and stopping/starting movements. The reload is also a issue, on reloads the animation cycles through unarmed states instead of the armed strafing states. The level design is 90% complete, just have to optimize it and apply ambiences. I haven't decided if I'm gonna add climbing, swimming or zip lining. I have a story line that will utilize a dialog system, it will be the last thing implemented. I may have to abandon multiplayer for now, just don't have the time.
Game Summary(as of today): Incursion - Secure the landing pad Cave system - Turn off thermo-reactors to Air Depot Facility Desert - Explore outposts to access Air Depot Facility Air Depot - Secure exterior and interior levels Extraction- Make it back to the landing pad in time.
Finally had some time to finish the last level - the cave system. Now I can focus on game mechanics and story line. Here is video from a small area (not optimized nor ambiences included) with the latest shooter/melee build. I must say it corrected a lot of minor issues I was having and make me look like I know what I'm doing.
