Week In Review (9/11/2015)

 
Hello Descenters,

 

Another week in the books! Some very nice improvements and additions this week so lets get right to a few of them.

  • Another graybox map has been implemented. The working name is "Ringsanity". You'll understand when you see it. It is a VERY large map and is best suited for large battles. In fact it's so large that it takes 1.5 minutes to fly the outer ring.
  • Some really nice work has been done in Mobius. It's actually very close to finished. Once done, we'll have 3 complete maps.
  • Capture The Core game mode TDD has been approved so the engineering starts today. Once done, we'll have 2 different game modes in the books along with individual and team play for each.
  • The Vulcan cannon is now in the game -- although with a temporary fire sound effect.
  • We've started looking at making some small changes to the power-up art. Nothing huge, but it will help players recognized the various power-ups from distance.
  • The installer/patcher is getting ever closer to be complete. We should start testing it next week. Once this and matchmaking are complete, we can open up the Proving Grounds!
  • Matchmaking is very nearly complete as well. The first implementation will be fairly basic, but it will soon be followed by a more in depth system that gives the players much more control over the game modes they wish to play.
  • The power-up system is being overhauled. Let's just say this was necessary due to the mass proliferation of power-ups.

 

Ok, now for the Studio Snapshot:

 

 

How about Wingman's Hangar? This week is another "special" episode. Check it out, I'm sure you'll love it!

Did I miss something, or did Wingman successfully skip over the wingmans weight section. Slick move Wingman! ;)

I think the "popping up in back" type of cameo/answer only works for short answers like "maybe". I liked it anyway though.
