GGC2020 – Day 7

GModStore Gamemode Competition 2020!

 

Day 7 Progress

Took a much needed break for a few days and I’ve been struggling to get back into the swing of things, so I decided to do something fun and prototype some landing animations for players touching down on planets. Inspired by Freelancer!

Next steps.. I still need to refactor a tonne of stuff now that I have a better grasp of the full gamemode concept, but that’s boring.

So I might prototype some more tomorrow! Thinking about having planetside areas control like in Freelancer, with a fixed point camera and mouse input.

I’m trying to do a lot of workarounds/fake interactions/areas like this in order to allow a massive possible play space, not just confined to the Source engine map maximum bounds
