Updates - Posted on: 9/8/2017   [OrbLands]

Finished updating the crystal objects. I created 6 different models with 4 different color variations.

To be honest, my goal was to create more photo-realistic models, but apparently its really hard to do that! I would need a special shader to get the effect I was wanting, which I don't even think exists. I tried painting the UV texture/maps, but then you just get flat looking textures, without any light reflections and light refraction, etc.

So, I made the models with two materials - one uses a gem shader for the base, and the second one uses a reflective cubemap as trim or details. It's not realistic, but at least it's pretty!

Here's a screenshot of the new enemy type. It hovers in one spot for a moment then randomly changes its position. The zig-zag movement makes it a tricky and fun target.

Updates 10/15/2017
I haven't been developing much. Amidst all the tragedies in the news, my focus is lacking. I recently updated a couple of the sky textures and added a few more, so there is 50 different skyboxes in the game now.

The menu from the original game script needs to be moved into the global script, and holy cow it's a been a lot of work... I think I must hate myself for wanting to be a programmer.
