Night Drivin’

May 2, 2019

Hello all, for your viewing delectation today we have an extended gameplay compilation from the internal test build – the roughest edges/bugs now sufficiently quashed to allow for it.

As we explain in the vid we still have a fair few issues to chase down in the coming weeks: strafing issues, character wheeling meaning it feels quite imprecise with the turning circle, general combat issues where some weapons feel too slow/fast etc.

We also still need to plug in work on rotational blending, MP hook-ups and the work on the zoom that led to the sharper-looking models we showed off in past weeks. None of which are overnight affairs.

So you can see what work we still have to do, we’ve used some subtitling to underline some of the issues as and when they crop up during the gameplay.

All that said though, it’s really feeling fun to play – and to look at. So, here we go.

Also added to the internal build this week is an experimental system to help with gun aiming – which will also come alongside a general tightening stuff like the shotgun radius, before we fully overhaul firearms in a future build.

Please note a) this might not end up in the main game or primary game modes depending on how fun it feels, and b) the colour is WIP and will be toned down in any full release.

We have also done work on attacks to feeding zombies, and added more zombie-like stances to zeds eating dead bodies. We are also in the process of adding smashed glass that lands after you break windows, which will then prove a hazard if you fall on it during your escape – or of course don’t wear shoes and do a John McClane over it.

Short but hopefully sweet! See you next time!

This week’s night drive from Spicy Eggplant. 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.
