Hey Folks! Still hard at work on the teaser. Joshua sent me a preview today, and it's really rekindling my enthusiasm for the game. And the goal now is to keep the footage coming so he isn't waiting.
Today's work focused on crew shots. There's a scene where a crew member explores a dark derelict in their orange suit, headlamp cutting into the darkness. I also cobbled together a few situations where three crew members are each working on fixing things. You can see an example in today's screenshot.
I had to do a few bespoke bits of code to spawn and position them in the right places, and get them all animating simultaneously. Not to mention turning off their AI so they didn't get up and wander off before the shot was done. Otherwise, it'd be sort of like photographing toddlers or cats :)
Anyway, it's progressing nicely! Tomorrow will probably be more UI work for some related shots. Then, I might have to do some custom art/compositing for a special effects shot. Looking forward to it!
