Cheap frills

Hostile Waters (+ some other old games) on the cheap :)


Stay on target... Stay on target!

Bit overdue for one of those log update thingies - my SVN changelog is getting crowded.

It's amazing how much work it takes at this stage to do stuff, and how little the game seems to progress after doing a big hack session. I have to tread the fine line between rapidly chucking in more features and keeping the build working on all fronts...

Relax...

Mmmmm... this isn't just *any* island... this is a Carrier Commander modified ridged perlin island with smooth shader topping, enrobed in jus de la mer!
Wouldn't you just *love* to make some models to inhabit this beautiful island?!

Help wanted

Hmmm. Time to get this thing put to bed I think.

I need a good 3d skinner/modeller to help get this thing finished. Anyone out there interested in Carrier Command and can do better than my efforts? (it aint hard - It's programmer art FGS ;))

Kinda side-stepping recently...

Moving a lot of data over to Lua, making it easier to organise, load & mod.

Added new weapon: clusterbomb thingies :) Nice area destruction now possible, if you find it hard aiming Mr Quaker.

Making all weapons available to the island defense drones & turrets, and making their attack patterns dependent on their...

Untitled

Back from hols last week - always strange getting back into things after a relaxing break. Normal service will resume shortly...

Found a nice article on indie game dev on my travels, brought to us by 'the escapist', home of the sublime Zero Punctuation. :)
