Welcome to the first of what I hope to be a continuing series.  Each week I intend to show to the public the assets I, and perhaps the rest of the active staff, have worked on over the past week.

I tackled something which has been on the metaphorical docket for a long time.  It's been low on the list, but as I've been mapping a bit lately I've been noticing the limits of the rural structures.  It so happened that I felt like expanding the existing rural civie set, so that is what I have done.  I intend to add a few more to round out the set, but for the most part I've accomplished what was intended.  We now have some further large (2x2) rural buildings and some south-west facing buildings.  I had never noticed the deficiency in the regular TS rural set, this lack of SW facing buildings, but hopefully the two of them below begin to rectify it.
Shown below are Neal's Safehouse, Mara's Place, a Maxi-Shack, a Maxi-Shack Deluxe, and J's Hydroponics.


A while ago Morpher converted the snow-only buildings for temperate.  He removed the snow and adapted them for the temperate palette.  These edits were pretty solid, especially on the smaller buildings, but the larger buildings had a lot of issues in their damage frames.  I have cleaned them up further, and will doubtless continue at some point.  Mostly I've removed more of the snow and the contours along the bottom which were covered with snow drifts.  As you can see, they can still use a bit more cleanup.


I've also been working on a set of buildings modeled after some of the CBD buildings in my hometown.  Most of them have since been demolished, but I remember them as being big grey slab structures with no clear windows or doors.  In my childhood they were covered in graffiti and incredibly run down.  These shps are far from finished, and their damage frames are still rudimentary, but I'm reasonably happy with them.


I also wrapped up work on my most recent map - Core Overload.  I would hope to get some online testing done for balance, since the map is only generally symmetrical and I want to keep the starting positions as analogous as possible.  The map is centred around a crater, with at its centre a well defended Cabal base.


Speaking of maps, I've also spent some time on another multiplayer map.  At the moment it's called "The Provinces".  Like Core Overload it is a 4 player map, this one taking place around a rundown civilian centre.  At the outskirts of the slum are capturable Construction Nodes, and a couple of GDI checkpoints.




It's a small, subtle thing, but one of the other things I've been playing with is the underlying palette available to the game.  I have for a while wanted to change the blue shades used in a lot of our capturable and civilian GDI structures  and vehicles.  I feel that the scheme I've come to is a little bit smoother than the default.


And that is what I did this week.

My condolences - but given the crisis in the Ukraine, ISIS and their atrocities, malaria in the third world, the rise of antibiotic resistance, and the increasing gap between rich and poor I can understand why you would.

Stay strong though, there is still good in the world and I'm sure you can find some of it to give you hope.

We're keeping our hopes firmly on a realistic 2030!

A lot of stuff goes on behind the scenes though, a lot of internal betas have passed and we do intend to show off new additions and content soon, it just needs to be good enough for public scrutiny!

Honestly I thought I was a perfectionist with what I do but this thing has been in development almost as long as SC2 was. xD

Do you guys just not have a lot of people, or is it just a slow process due to wanting a certain standard or personal issues?

Currently it's mostly myself and OracVX. Most of our staff have been and gone, a lot of contributions that get left behind unfortunately then end up not fitting in properly or requiring extra work, sometimes just being entirely remade. With such a long development time also comes larger expectations from the public and a lot of the "lack of progress" phases are usually due to work or life situations.
