Re: Hey guys what's up? Merry Christmas :D

Merry Christmas!

Boy that brings up some memories.

The BZ community is also responsible for my current career trajectory.

I believe that the 1.3 patch was co-opted into the remaster so it's pretty much finished.

Most of the BZ related chatter happens in the various Discord servers now I believe.

Re: I made another game

Thanks. It was actually heavily based off Freelancer. I intend to eventually expand the game in the future into a Freelancer sized game with a full campaign. I know that multiplayer would be ideal, considering that is how games like Freelancer and BZ survive in the modern era. The main issue there i...

I made another game

Husky: Ashcon I is a space combat sim set in a world where talking dogs reign supreme. https://media.indiedb.com/images/games/1/70/69094/husky4.png The first mission has been released here. Depending on how well it goes, there will probably be a full-scale game behind it eventually. If anyone is int...

Re: My Modern Battlezone Pet-Project...

This post is turning into a dev blog lol. I can't remember if I posted the vid before this one... Did a major rehaul of the weapon class to reduce memory allocations. Working on some kind of ordnance / projectile pooling system as well to reduce that even further. It'll definitely help later on whe...

Re: Map with Time of Day and Weather Change

The original game allowed weather changes, but time of day can only be set in-game via DLL.

Pretty nice model. The way that I upload pictures and display them here is to use a webs.com site.

Re: Realistic maps with 2K textures and sky sprites

IIRC, it is possible to use textures up to 4096x8192. That is the largest size that the DXT generator can handle. At least, it was 2 years ago when I last used it. It might be different now.

Nice moon, by the way. :)

Re: BZ Redux impressions

The new fury saucers do fall out of the sky much faster. In the original game, they would slowly come down giving you time to blast them with rockets before they were in weapons range. Now they just fall straight down and start firing before you can get a lock on them. It does make it quite a bit ha...

Re: BZ Redux impressions

The new furies are seriously hard to kill.

In that mission, you're better off just rushing the enemy base as quickly as possible.

Re: BZ Redux impressions

Oh well. It's still pretty nice. I'd actually really like to see BZ2 remade in a similar fashion. I'd hope that they'd deviate a little more next time and make the environments a lot more detailed. I want to see Mire maps that resemble something out of Crysis. Rebellion are the guys who made Sniper ...

Re: BZ Redux impressions

Honestly, I was hoping that it would be more of a 're-imagining' of Battlezone than just a set of graphical enhancements. I was hoping that there would be new missions, new characters and essentially an entirely new Battlezone game. Playing through it, it just felt like the same old-same old with a ...
