Shavra – Small Update

****Small Update****

No earth shattering news but as you know, games like this grow in small increments.
I have been adding to existing areas, which I hope you’re not tired of seeing A few other tiny things have happened too though.

I have finally gone through my asset library and fixed materialindex issues and some transparency issues. If you also have foliage that doesn’t work quite right, with it obscuring objects behind it or having outlines around the leaves/branches do this:

1. Make sure the occluder/occludee setting is proper for the way you use it (duh!)
2. Make sure the line “transparency = 5” is added to the .fpe.
3. Be sure to quickly edit the texture to make sure the part that has transparency to it (leaves, grasses, branches) don’t touch the edge of the texture.

Now you should be all set and they should (mostly) render as intended. Special thanks to Duke for giving me the hint about that last part.

Also this: All you script savvy folks might be able to point me in the right direction:
For the game, I want the player to be able to carry only 2 weapons. A light one and a heavy one. So whenever he finds a new light weapon (dagger, shortsword…so on) he will have to switch it with the one he has currently equipped. Same with the heavy weapons. The other 7 weapon slots should be reserved for spells, where the same system applies.
Is that at all achievable in LUA? I wouldn’t know how to go about that so I am looking for input

So, here is some more wandering through the nature of Sha’Rath: I am in no way advocating for anything but I must say that I think the final game will also be fun to stroll through while stoned.


Fixed some media to render properly
Additions to levels

As always, thanks for stopping by and I am always grateful for feedback!

So long!

Who really has time to think about a summary of himself on the internet? I like art, women, gamedesign and I love coffee. Everything else is too much information.
