Dev-Blog #9 - Pre-Alpha 1.3

News

Hello guys,

The last update was a few months ago and alot of stuff has changed since then. The most important thing was the release of Pre-Alpha build 1.3 which took more time than I anticipated, due to alot of changes. One of the biggest is my new workflow. My old way of doing things was - for example - to complete a model with all its textures. This took me alot of time and especially for models and textures of the CFA design it has eaten up much of my motivation. So instead of working slowly for a few weeks on a single model, you will see more unfinished work that will be completed during the games development - hopefully done by artists that are more capable than I am.

<< Version 1.3 >>


I recently made a small gameplay video showing the latest progress presented in the build 1.3. It shows most of the new features, like the Kubus, Sentry Cores and the CFA Dropship as Command Center.


There is quite some stuff new in this game, like the Dropship of the Diploducas / CFA, the Sentry Core and Kubus for the Pandora Forces and tons of new music tracks licensed for this game. If you are new to RTS gameplay or don't really understand the gameplay of Timeless War yet, you can also activate AIA by pressing the "Q" key while ingame and learn from the AI system, even though it is still in development (more info about the AIA system in Dev-Blog #8. ;) For a full list of all the changes, please take a look at the Change-Log of build 1.3:


You can download and play the Pre-Alpha 1.3 Pre-Alpha 1.4.1 here:

Pre-Alpha Build 1.4.1

<< Pandora Forces Defensive System >>


I talked about the Kubus in Dev-Blog #8, so I continue with their turret:
The Sentry Core is part of the Pandoras' defensive system called Remote Turrets. They need a power source in close proximity - a Power Plant, Command Center, large combat space ships like Dreadnoughts, or a Siege Tank in Power Supply Mode (the latter is in development) - to be able to activate. While active, the Sentry Core can be selected and moved around like a unit and attack enemies in range. It even will be able to travel trhough all your base to engage intruders in your base. Right now the turrets stay at their place and feed all enemies in range with blue plasma bullets. But if they get inactive somehow, they have to be brought back in range of a power source. This is one thing I am currently working on.

For Battleships and Dreadnoughts those guns will be alot bigger with a devastating fire power at long range, however they will work the same way and can be destroyed to cripple that space ships punch. More about that once Space Fights are implemented. ;)


<< Mobile Construction Vehicle >>

At the moment, the CFA Dropship is just another structure with no other purpose than building new buildings. Later this will change so the Dropship will suit the CFA's aggressive gameplay: At the beginning of a match the Dropship will have an animation to make it land and deploy like a MCVs or Crawler known from the C&C series. Once the spawning animation is complete you have two options. First cou can start building structures in which case the Dropship would abort construction if you want to take off and place it somewhere else. Alternatively you will have a perk that allows you to leave the Construction Vehicle on the ground and take off while you can still build stuff. The perk will also unlock an Upgrade for the Dropship to create a new construction vehicle inside its cargo bay. That means after deploying again, the Dropship will leave another constructure vehicle at place. This mechanic will come very handy if you need to quickly expand in your enemies back while leaving the old base as a decoy or simply to attack from two fronts. And while the ship itself is on the move, it will be able to transport light units across the battlefield. Besides, the hatch on the top side of the aircraft will be an utility slot for upgrades that vary with the choice of your Commander.


<< Having Performance Issues? >>

While having some test games, I realized that the game can be laggy at larger battles. Do you have made the same experience? I am trying to address all the performance bottle necks and fixed quite a few of them in build 1.3. Additionally I will make use of Multithreading, a methode to split code into single threads which then can be computed by additional CPU cores of your machine. Currently it is just done by the Unity Engine for Pathfinding calls of units, which are only triggered every 0.5 seconds after an unit was created and they dont even take much time to process. So I was thinking that I could make use of alot of unused CPU resources to max out the games FPS count even on large battles. It technically takes just a few lines of code to implement and a bit more work to move Unity API functions which I have done quite alot so far. What do you think? Do you have any experience on that?

<< Pre-Alpha 1.3.1 >>

The next build will not take a couple of months to be done. Actually the release is planned for this week. For 1.3.1 I will fix some of the know bugs and other issues I might come across. Also I am very grateful if you could post any bugs you found in the comment sections down below, bugs I might not be able to find otherwise. I will try to fix them in later builds. The more details you present, the more helpful you bug-report will be.

Thank you guys for reading and I hope you like the latest Pre-Alpha. Stay tuned for more! :)

OH ****, it's a standalone game now!? DUDE. DUDE. DUUUDE. This was one of my favorite mods for CnC when it was one of the few games I had, and now the mod has up and become a standalone game? That's just. Yes. Yeeees.

The interface for regulting the sound is not ready yet. And thanks for reporting the bug with the controls. I will fix that for the next build.

**EDIT**
While in Menu, if you clicked on "Options", you can close it by clicking it again.
Ingame is not possible, so I will fix thats the new top of my to-do list. Again, thanks for mentioning it! :)

Yes, definitively! But first the gameplay mechanics must be in place otherwise the Tuto would be quite pointless. :P BTW: Thanks for the review. :)
