3D Tools

As I wrote before, apart from the big thing, I was working on redoing all of the tools in glorious 3D. This has now been largely finished, and that’s how it looks like:

Nothing too excessive, because I want to keep the triangle counts low. But the tools should now look consistent across the board. I may also do the stick later.

In the meantime I am continuing with some more optimization work, which, and that’s the hint for you, is partially connected with the big thing.

Btw. here’s a nice review of the game I just found: http://wmpoweruser.com/game-review-survivalcraft/

      Now that I think about it I think it is a new land generator.

    Hey what will happen with texture packs? Will you have to redesign it or will it just happen automatically.

      The shape of the new tools cannot be controlled via a texture pack. The material texture can be.

    The hint has confirmed by guess which is something that is like redstone in minecraft. In other words logic gates may be coming to survivalcraft if I am correct.

    I think the big think id a weather system :P

      I think that makes sense. Weather would be huge (and hugely welcome), and would definitely require a lot of optimizations.

        I did ask for that. So it’s most probable and he said he’d get to it soon when I suggested it so I’m for weather.

    I didn’t think you needed too change the tools, but wow, how i was wrong, they look much better, given you are obviously a listener and move the game in the general direction of players views, i too believe we’re probably gonna see weather, that wasn’t my first guess though. well done again, and great review.

    I’m thinking the diamond versions look better again, do 3d tools use more memory in actual game play?

    I can imagine what they look like but any chance we can see the wood stone diamond tools as well as the bucket?

    Is there something new that will appear on the screen? I only ask as the left hand side is ommitted on the pics or was just a way to show the tools clearly. or maybe new control added!

      well I’d say title screen music would be incredible or the ability to listen to music downloaded in game and in the menus.

    For iron and diamond tools a little bit of gleem may be in order.

    Oh I had another idea lions or tigers would be fun to see and also I had an idea to train wolves. Digging bones out of the ground with a pick axe and giving it to them should work but the bones should be found deep in the ground. Reply if you support this idea anyone. Thanks!!!

    As I’m not very tech savvy I don’t know what changes would require optimization or even what that word entails but I think he may be adding armor that helps us combat the new creature. Not my first guess but you all already covered those for me.

    Maybe the new creature ate Kaalus while was working on the new feature since Kaalus was taking too long and ignoring the cute little guy. He hasn’t responded in a while and zombies are completely overrated.

    kaalus surely is working hard on the new update ^.^
