Just wanted to let you all know that there is a big update incoming. I was hoping to have it out today but it's not ready quite yet.
We uncovered two massive Unity bugs in the 5 series that required us to re-write an entire chunk of code. These will be fixed when Unity releases 5.3.1 but in order to get out updates out sooner we went ahead and overhauled our code to work around the bugs.
I'll have a set of videos showing off all the new stuff soon but until then here are a couple of character customization and damage shots showing off the characters!
As you can see, things are about to get a whole lot more animated! You'll now be able to fully customize your character (more on that in the upcoming video) as well as steer their personalities. The personality engine is in its infant stage but growing and refining fast.
Since characters are built using a custom substance engine you'll be able to see damage happening to your character. In addition whether they are insane, poisoned, on fire or what have you their texture and visual appearance will animate and change. Careful of taking too much damage though or you'll receive permanent scarring!
A characters body shape will be determined by their stat distribution. The head shape, skin colour, tattoos and hair will be customized somewhat during the initial character creation, then much more once you've founded your town and built a barbershop or what have you.
Additionally here is what we've been working on:
- Finalizing town building
- Skill training
- Area conquest: I love this mechanic.
- Town defense
- Equipment forging and graphics
That's it for today, be on the lookout for a massive update soon but until then have a good one!
