We’ll be releasing some new video content in November showing how the combat and AI works in Total Chaos, along with traps and various other bits and bobs. Stay tuned!
Sorry for the lack of updates lately, been working away at the housing district which occupies the eastern side of the island. Its looking a little overgrown. Someone better call a gardener…
Recently added flares to the inventory. These can be used to light up the area and potentially light fires in the environment.
Had a big lighting challenge getting these to work. The lighting gets clipped at a certain value. We worked around this by adding several additive sprites to get a more glowing result.
A lot has been going on under the hood recently. We’ve revamped the entire inventory system and have started working on a new AI system to replace the default Doom one.
Today we’re happy to show off a new crafting system we’ll be incorporating into Total Chaos. Most of your weapons will have to be built out of scrap and spare parts. You’ll be lucky to find a pickaxe in perfect condition lying around, you’ll have to scavenge the environment to find the parts for it, then its on to crafting!
We’re hoping to make the crafting system as simple as possible. You could just randomly drop items into the window and hope for the best, but we’ll be scattering blueprints around the world to guide the player on recommended builds, and to get the best out of the scraps they’ve found lying around.
We’ll shortly be rolling out some more video content! For now, here are some screen grabs of whats coming…
Sorry for the lack of updates recently!
We’ve been busy putting together a new teaser for you guys. Something that sheds some light on the combat mechanics in Total Chaos. It’ll be dropping sometime in August.
We’ve finally got our miner buddy running in-engine. Currently sitting at 7k polygons! Still a bit of work to do to chop that down a bit. The texture and rigging are still being worked on (hence the disconnected tubing).
More updates soon!
