Make it happen…

Working on the shop…

To be able to make the equipment screen properly, I need to finish the shop… And working on it, I saw it wasn’t very pleasant to use: the mouse wheel didn’t scroll the item list, double clicking wouldn’t buy stuff, you didn’t have any indication of the amount of items of one type you had… […]

Let’s go shopping!

Today I didn’t have much time to work on the game… Just fixed the problems with the shop caused by the refactor of the item system. Still need to display somewhere the amount of items of that type the player already has available (grenades, fuel, etc), but I might leave that for when I receive […]

More effects…

Well, at this rate I won’t finish the story part by Sunday, but sometimes playing with effects is so much fun… Today, I kind of lost track of time working on the background effect of the last area, which led to a very interesting effect, which lends the whole area a completely different tone… So, […]

Bugs on the editor

Today I mostly struggled with a bug on my editor. I’ve added a shader to one of the voxel materials, to give it a special effect to the end zone, but when I tried to add some alpha to it, it wouldn’t display anything… After an hour or so of searching the wrong place, I […]
