The Final Stretch and the Super-Secret Tech Demo
Galactic Domination...Now in an Organized Fashion
I hope you're all ready to create and manage a faction, because I know I am, and we've now officially hit the goal!!! It seems like just yesterday that we hit planetary ownership...it's incredible how much steam this project is picking up here towards the end! Who knows where we'll end up??
Super-Secret Tech Demo #5
Yep, I said #4 would be the last one, but I was wrong! I spent the last week slaving to get the engine running as smoothly as possible on my laptop so that I could record some more footage. It worked! I'm pleased to say that performance of the LT engine has more than doubled over the past week...so get ready to play on under-powered machines if you'd like to do so!
Thankfully, I've got a lot to show this time. It's the longest tech demo yet, mostly because I've had more time to work now that school is out. But I'm not going to tell you what's in the demo...you've got to watch to find out! I'll just say that...maybe it will provide some inspiration for getting to the $200K goal! :)
Don't forget to watch in 1080p...this one took a whopping five hours to upload!!
A Month in Retrospect
Let's take a look at what's happened this month in terms of Limit Theory development, shall we?
- Ship/station Editor
- Tactical Interface
- Carrier Prototypes
- Station Generation
- Asteroid Base Generation
In the beginning, I asked you all to believe me when I said that everything I had shown so far was representative of only 3 months of work, and that I could finish in a bit more than a year. Over this one-month period, I hope I've managed to substantiate that claim in your eyes! Of course, the only real proof will be when I deliver the finished product to you...but I hope the tech demos have given at least a glimpse of the pace of LT development that is to come.
In fact, I'd like to go even further, and let you know that the development that you've seen over this past month has been unusually slow for LT. Why? Because at least 50% of my time has been devoted to keeping up with the KS campaign, answering PMs, comments, forum posts, Q/As, etc. Furthermore, it was the month of final exams/final projects at school, so that took up a bit more time than usual. With those things in mind, I hope you'll believe me when I tell you that a typical month for LT is generally even more fruitful than what you've seen this month :)
Off to the stars we go! Will we be riding in carriers along the way? Only time will tell!! :)
