Phoenix USC is a fast action space combat game inspired by SubSpace (www.subspace.co). Phoenix USC is an MMO that will handle hundreds of players per server and will come complete with it's own map/world editor. Phoenix USC is currently in the beta stage of development. If you like massively multiplayer fast action addictive top down shooting games, then this is the game for you. This project will begin open beta testing soon so check us out. :)
I'm still hard at work developing Phoenix USC. I thought I would post this development video of Phoenix USC. Featured here is the new duel layer of play that lets you play on two levels on a map. This allows overhead ramps, balconies and more, even an entire second level layer on the same map. Options will allow the upper layer to be semitransparent, solid or invisible. The pink and purple bars at the ends of the ramps are switches and will be hidden in an actual game scenario.
I have added a exhaust trail system that can have several trailing tails behind a ship.
I have also added an overhead part system that allows for things like overhead struts or other types of map parts. The same system allows for lights and shadows that interact with the ships on a map for example shadows form an overhead part cast on top of a ship or the same with lights.
Phoenix USC is humming along in beta development. :)
