As a result of discussions we've been having lately it has occurred to me that a cool addition to this forum would be a WIP thread. Share what you're working on! Screenshots, gifs, videos, code snippets; anything goes. We want to see what you're up to!

    To start things off, I've been working on the Lumberjack Simulator world, working on creating more variation in the landscapes with different ground texture types, and creating decals to do a kind of texture blending.

    I've also been playing around with the bloom shader to try and find a sweet spot, which is why the intensity may seen higher than it would be on your own machine.

    Been stuck on some big projects at work so the Plasticide progress has been slow over the last month. Only really finished one new model.

    These red butted cow things will try to butt the player and use a spit attack when at range. Still want to do another 2 enemy models to cover the basic types to attack patterns interesting enough.
    Currently working on figuring out how to do the modular player models. Making things made out of Plasticine look mechanical has been a real stumbling block but will have something to show on that soon.

    :O

    I am really looking forward to seeing those guys in action! Do you have plans to animate them?

    No, take your time, please. My nightmares can wait, I guess. :(

    @Insane Are those decals floating above the ground like NS2 decals? They seem to be causing a shadow, at least the petal like decals..

    Edit

    Or are they meant to be daisies, dandelions, and the like with shadows?

    my plans right now are to model all the core content i'll need for the prototype; 5 enemy's, a small set of player model modules and a basic environment set. Once there I will probably move onto trying to animate...I like to do things in chunks so they're somewhat consistent and It also helps me focus. Mostly depends on where the engine is with the animation side of things, I find it a little intimidating right now. Also once all the base content is done I'll open source everything so maybe someone else will want to have a stab at doing some.

    Apparently sex sells so I kept that in mind while designing the starting gear for the player model... WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT BELOW

    The initial idea was to create robot player models but given how odd the monsters and world are turning out having humans seemed a nice way of grounding the whole thing.
    Next I'm going to start sculpting different modular parts of armor and clothing the players will have to scavenge and craft from the initial crash site and throughout the maps.

    @BeigeAlert what we really need is nice jiggle physics for his comb over to flap in the wind.... amongst other things.

    A nice quiet weekend so there's two new models this week. The second player model and the fourth monster type.
    This one can only be hurt from the back, its designed to force players out of tight spots and prevent bottle necks from being overly exploited. Hopefully it'll create a nice coop dynamic where one baits while the other attacks from the rear.

    Next week I'll try finish the final monster for the prototype and start showing off some Armour designs.

    Does the white bony area represent invulnerability while the red in the back is the extra damage zone?

    That should be possible. I'll have to think how best to implement that. Thanks for sharing your work! We are all really looking forward to seeing these things in action.

    My current thoughts were to just nullify any attacks that come from in a particular angle relative to where the monster was facing rather than having some complex hit box rig. Obviously accurate hit boxes would be preferable but in the name of getting something playable out ASAP, I'll be happy with very basic implementation as proof of concept.
    The eyes and mouth weren't intended to be weak spots (though they do kind of look like they should be) but rather its exposed behind and red bump.
    let me know if you have any ideas of how to do this.

    For a variety of reasons a sandbox level for playing around with physics objects of various types seemed a good idea, so I've been putting one together:

    The game is Future Perfect and these are images from games people are making using Future Perfect. Howser is making a shooter for example.

    Wasn't satisfied with the default inventory system, so I added some features.

    Great improvements @Brute! I like all the customization options you have in there.
