For a while I had a few volunteers that would come and go and contribute. Only one of them stuck around, and he's been a great help.

I also paid someone to do two of the world's tile-sets but I can't afford to put more money into a freeware project and, besides, he's not available anymore.

It's all original, but I didn't do much of it. I'm more skilled at programming and design than artwork.

Been a while since I've posted here about Moldering. Been doing some really cool things. We have a new facebook page here:
https://www.facebook.com/projectmoldering

Gameplay video with new graphics:




Some new screenshots (also on the facebook page):





The Devblog is down for some reason, been working with our hosting company to get it up and running again. The link for that is here:

Progress on hobby games ebbs and flows. Right now things are a-flowin'.

With such a deep atmospheric perspective it really lacks a true parallax scrolling.
Otherwise, this is stunning, visually.

If you're talking about the video of that world, the parallax wasn't implemented at that time. I've implemented the parallaxing into the engine, I just need to go in and set the values for each layer.

Didn't have a whole lot of time today with school and work, but got the parallaxing looking super freakin' sweet and added some lightning and thunder to go along with the simple weather I was working on the last couple of days.

Hopefully video soon. Parallax=love.

November 6th, 2011

-reworked the camera system. It's now predictive of player
-created a mass of .ini files to allow other developers on the team to alter variables
-created three ambient lighting systems.


(Lighting system 1)



(Lighting system 2)



(Lighting system 3)

The first lighting system casts the layers the player is in and around into complete darkness but still allows the background and night sky to shine through. This is most representative of real life, I feel. The less ambient light there is, the more the sky and stars are visible.

The second system casts the whole world in darkness except for all lighting sources. This one might be fun to experiment with in terms of gameplay. Lightning bugs that hover and dart around, lighting the scene up as they move, would look nice here and could be used to toy with the players perception of where they should explore (or not explore). However, I personally think the first lighting system is the most aesthetically pleasing.

The third is a modified version of the second system and is a sort of hybrid of the first two. It mostly just shows the player the areas where the lights are, but also lets a little bit of the rest of the map through.


TECH:
I wrote these systems using Java2D and get decent frame rates with over 1500 objects in conjunction with the lighting system. The first lighting system is the most interesting one. Basically what's done here is upon entering the specific map, an image of all the tiles which should be cast in shadow is drawn in all black. Then the light sources are blended into this image once per frame and finally a sub-image is taken from this image of the camera's view and rendered on top of the scene. The biggest performance increase was rendering all the static objects once upon entering the frame. I will still have to draw all of the moveable objects each frame if I want them to be cast in shadow as well.

New video. Also, check the first post of this thread for devlog updates:

#14 Moldering: Fading Caves and Ability Ring


Since this video three abilities have been implemented so far: Rock, Fireball, and Quake, each with their own unique use of the mouse. A video of them will come once there's enough implemented for them to interact with.

Thanks. I realize there hasn't been a lot about gameplay shown off here but that's what we're working on now. More updates coming soon.
