This is the first real official update for Miniverse.
This is the current state of the game.
- New sun radii effect.
- New human world model.
- New world proximity effect. The little green arrow lets you know that you can move humans between planets.
- New human spaceship model. I would like to put some more work into this at some point.
- New sun material.
- Some VERY preliminary work on the asteroids.
- Some VERY preliminary work on the space backgrounds.
We also made the decision to tap a planet to move the people. For example, the player moves a planet close to another planet, the small green arrow points to the planet that the people will be moved to, the player will tap the planet with the people and the people will move to the nearest planet within range. This will make moving people very simple, which was a big issue in the demo.
I also did a bunch of research on shaders and lighting models in TF2 and SWOTOR as they are the look we are trying to emulate.
If you can guess the inspiration you get a 60 internet points.
