Forking Hell

February 28, 2019

Hey hey it’s Thursdoid time, this week may be a bit short as there are interesting things afoot in the Indie Stone family that means certain usual Thursdoid writers cannot be with us today (hence the worse than usual pun!), however we still have some cool videos to show!

Things have been progressing very nicely with the animation build, the entire team beavering away happily implementing the multitude of anims and costumes, as Zac and Mark from TEA have continued their work on the tech, ironing out the last few issues with the animation blending, as well as providing some extra cool tools to help us implement and debug the animations (as well as the modders once it releases!)

In the game implementation side of things, we’ve started to get all the inventory icons in and implementations of all the weapons that will appear in the game (though more may come before release), crafting, looting and various other things are implemented.

Videos speak louder than words though, and let’s get a taste of some new Beever while we’re at it.

(please note due to remaining issues to resolve, this video does not contain the high res model rendering shown last week)

In other related news, this week we’ve been spending some time getting all the <REDACTED>  future build content up to date with the animation build, so we’re ready to go with full team development on it as soon as animations is complete and out there.

That’s it for this week folks, sorry for the short Thursdoid but I’m sure you’d rather I was hammering away at anims than stressing about writing words here and hope the videos satisfy your appetite. Normal business will resume next week!

This week’s meeting of the minds from eHxAtoMiic. A general list of stuff added to PZ, and vids of features being worked on, is kept here– so you don’t have to plough through endless dev blogs for info. The Centralized Block of Italicised Text would like to direct your attention to the PZ Wiki should you feel like editing or amending something, and the PZ Mailing List that can send blogs like this and patch notes direct to your mailbox. We also live on Twitter right hereOur Discord is open for chat and hijinks too.
