Had a break (Gothic marathon, I played through Gothic I, II and III, but only finished I because playing as a mage in II with NoTR addon was a joke - hell, in particular. Got bored with III because you quickly get powerful and then it's only mindless killing), and about today I came back to my lovely game. Still wrestlin' with them shadows, but thanks to marvellous advices coming from Polly
it's quite better now. Yet, still something's broken.
Here's a couple of screenshots:
And a close-up which reveals the artifacts:
It's a huge pain, demotivating, too, but I cannot give up on those shadows. They just look too cool to me
Well, hopefully I'll fix them shadows soon, and I'll be able to move onto things like spell effects, item wielding & dropping system, blood particles and such.
When that's done, I'll move on onto maps, which means more shapes like pillars, bridges and so forth, along with scripted events like small puzzles.
But those shadows.. I could aswell delay their implementation to a later date, but then my screenshots won't be as wonderful as I'd like them to be.
Also, I think I'll change game's name. Both because the game is not much about dungeons actually, it'll feature only a handful levels in dungeons (besides that there'll be forests, cities and such). Besides that, there's a quite popular game Guild of Dungeoneering
, and I don't want to impersonate anyone or anything. It's just too similar.
