Hi all, today I want to give you a peek WHAT you can get for contribution to the Codename : STARSHOOTER project.
Recently 2 ship designs printed at Shapeways.com arrived at my home. I need to test print them before, to make sure they are all in proper detail and everything comes out as it should. I already know, that I need to make few adjustments to those designs, make few parts a bit thicker and so on. I won't bother you with the technical stuff.
And here they are. And don't forget to tell me what you think about them !
Here you can see #1 and #2 design of the ingame ship in plain 3D printed material, as is. If you want it this way, no problem, but it's a bit harder to see all the details, because the material is a bit translucent.
See what I mean ? The left one is painted with coat of gray ship hull paint, so you can see a LOT more details. There's a lot details on the models, but you must keep in mind that the models are aprox. 5 cm x 5cm x 2cm , so fairly small. It's a miniature after all ;)
Here you can see detail of the #2 ship design, coated in gray.
And again, both #1 and #2 designs with something for size comparison. It's 2 Euro coin.
Just to give a bit of update, Indiegogo.com campaign is already on and there are already 2 contributors. It's not that much yet, but atleast something to start with ! But it's just a beginning and I hope, that it will turn out well.
Now back to the game itself, as I said I needed to optimize a bit the Boss scene, to be able run it smoothly on mobile devices. So this is how it turned out. I had to made the nebulaes a bit simpler, but on the contrary I added lens effects.
Now the scene is almost complete. I have to implement the player now and some other mechanisms, so it will be fun. This was actually what was taking the longest, but it's about 60% done. So hopefully next update will be with this scene DONE.
I'm thinking about posting a playable demo of this Boss fight part #1 on web. So stay tuned.
