Update #13: Sun, Shadows & Stretch Goals
I am currently working on an improved lighting system. The sun now rotates around the world and casts semi-realistic shadows at daytime. I've also switched to a new cloud system which should, once I've figured out the bugs, look really nice and provide some dynamically changing cloud shadows. Please have a look!
In other news, we are about to hit our first stretch goal, the trade caravans! The caravans will arrive at semi-random times and offer you unique and interesting trading opportunities based on what you have in store and what you need. I think they will be quite an interesting feature.
The next stretch goal will be at 20.000€ and add additional weather effects to the game. I'm thinking of snow and sand storms, droughts and other effects which will contribute a lot to the game's atmosphere.
I hope we can reach these stretch goals! If you have friends who might enjoy Kubifaktorium, now would be a good time to let them know! Maybe Kubifaktorium is a game they will really enjoy. And every contribution brings all of us closer to those nice weather effects. :)
What stretch goals would you like to see?
Have a nice day!
