Blog 168 (20/01/10)


Recommended Posts

Welcome to this week's blog. I'm back at university now which means that I'll be learning more skills to bring to the table in terms of AR. Win!


<h3>Tesla Coil & Prism Tower: Ingame and Untextured</h3>

dtrngd has been playing around in level edit and has setup some pretty cool stuff ahead of time.


Very recently he got the Tesla Coil and Prism Tower's new models ingame and setup to destroy some opposing bots. There's not much else to say, so check out the screenshots.





<h3>GI's Sandbags</h3>

Poggel has arranged the sandbags that will be used for the GI ingame. We have been thinking about how they will function properly ingame; as opposed to the abominations we have currently.


This sounds funny, but we are probably going to end up rigging the sandbags as vehicles. This is so we can take advantage of the w3d vehicle physics in order to make the sandbags conform to slopes. We'll have a screenshot of it soon enough.


But for now, here are some sandbags.




<h3>AR Interview at CnCFPS.com</h3>

Last week, cfehunter, dtrngd and I were interviewed over at www.cncfps.com by Genesis2001 and Lone0001. We were asked many questions about the mod's development and overall, I think is was a great success.

Soon, the CnCFPS team will be conducting an interview with Chronojam and a few members of the A Path Beyond team at BHP. Questions can be submitted at suggestions@cncfps.com!



Just a quick note to say thanks to everyone who has voted for us. Voting ends today and hopefully we've reeled in an award this year!


If you haven't voted already, shame on you.

That depends on how it is set up. Since we haven't set it up yet, that's something that we will have to look at. It would probably make sense to do it that way though, because otherwise you would have sandbags in odd positions if they ever flipped over.

Why the hell would sandbags flip over?

You know testers people like to ram (into) everything, be it front, back, side, top, bottom, inside, outside...something side... :D

Does this mean that sandbags will have edit_vehicle settings? Or will flippin' and flyin' and stuff won't work because there are no wheel bones?
