Capital Ships!!!

Hey everyone!

Well, we currently have 10 days to get our demo ready for the student IGF, and Mark and I have been working like crazy (when not distracted by Rise of Nations).

Our demo will probably contain around 10 missions designed to showcase the cool features of the game. We're not sure if we want to put the story into the demo, or wait until it's more fleshed out, and release a new demo later.

Anyways, over the past couple of days, I have been putting the capital ships into the game,and I think they are pretty cool. Each type of ship can have up to 4 guns , and 1 missile launcher positioned anywhere on the ship's hull. When the ships are spawned at the beginning of a level, they are also assigned randome death animations, so that the ships will die differently each time. We currently have 4 different deaths, but my favorite by far is the one in the screenshot below, the ship begins to sink, then the bow goes under the water, and he stern comes up, until the ship is finally below the waves.

Before:



After:


We currently have 3 different types ships, but it's really easy to add more, so expect that number to rise in the near future.

Well, thats all for now, back to work[grin]......
