Hi! I'm Mathias "mat^2" Kærlev. You may know me as one of the original developers of Ace of Spades. I'm working on a third-person voxel shooter called Subversive Takedown:


The Greenites and Bluekins fight in objective-based maps, where the Greenites attack and the Bluekins defend. In the current map, the Greenites try to move a train towards the Intelligence Building, after which they can steal the intel. The Bluekins both have to stop the train using block barricades and defend the intel.

I'm also working on a singleplayer story mode, but that's still in development!

If you're a level designer/artist and you find this interesting, feel free to contact me Smiley

Config
Some GPUs may not be able to run the SSAO shaders at a good framerate, but you can disable those using "graphics = 0" in config.txt. On Linux, you may also have to set "samples = 0" if you have a GPU without multisampling, even though this will be fixed in a later release.

Been working on a pretty killfeed. It's simple, but it works, even though I guess I could add amusing messages like "mat^2 blew himself up!", W:ET-style.




Next up is hit indicators for enemies. Not sure if I should ultimately go with a small "-10 HP" popup or something, but I'll try that for starters at least.

What happens if you turn the SSAO shader off? Some info on what GPU card you have would be helpful as well.

Turning SSAO off I get about 15-20 FPS.

I have a GeForce 6600.

Right, it seems like you have a quite low-end card, but for the next build, I will be adding some frustum/occlusion culling to optimize the rendering for integrated/low-end GPUs.

In other news, I made it so the scale of voxel props and the grid are restricted to a power of two. This makes it so the blocks you place are usually aligned with the rest of the map.

I gave it a real quick test. Silky smooth on my PC. GTX 660, i7. Ran out of ammo and crushed myself with the train.

Was just thinking that this has a really Ace of Spades-like vibe.

Sounds cool. I'll give it a shot later.

Still working on the new build. Got most of the features implemented, such as map icons ->



Still working on map/pack sending and frustum culling, but it's getting there.

Downloading now.

EDIT: Runs much better, thank you!

The camera is a little shaky though when you change modes (press E).

Not sure if that has to do with my 200 ping though lol.

I'll be improving the camera in the next release - I'm still not quite satisfied with how it turned out in build 40. I'm thinking about locking the top-down camera and leaving the 'aiming' to the third-person-behind-the-back camera so it's not so confusing.

The Mac version doesn't appear to be running on OS X 10.6.8. The icon doesn't even bounce in the dock. It just shows up and disappears immediately. No error message. Not even the default OS X one.

Oh, that's weird, it seems to work on 10.7/10.8 at least. Could you open the application in a console instead? That is, cd into "Subversive Takedown.app/Contents/Resources" and type "../MacOS/client". That should give you some more verbose errors, hopefully.

Right, found a couple of bugs at the match yesterday which I'm going to fix, especially the intel bug. Also, there's the spazzy camera bug which seems to happen on low-end computers with e.g. integrated cards.

I've been working on a "tie" track - still needs some mixing though: http://mp2.dk/music/tie.ogg
Also, I will probably be adding voice chat like this: http://mp2.dk/it%20is%20only%20a%20game.ogg
