I have uploaded images of most of the models of the Locust Horde that will be in the game. I have completed the models and most of the textures and I am working on rigging them, however I may need to reduce the level of detail when I put them in the game. They currently are between 5,000-15,000 polygons.
I am typically busy with school and working on my other projects, however when I have free time I am working on this and another few little side projects. Emergence Day will be released open source upon completion. I estimate that it will be released sometime this summer, however that is a fairly arbitrary guess.
I am starting to get comfortable with the engine. I am have developed a working camera system that I hope to showcase soon when I get some models working ingame. I am also working on the combat system (including the chainsaw) and various other systems that I think will be pretty cool, and hope will work how I want so as to help inspire a revolution of awesome mods.
I am also planning on developing an FPS template and hope to have that nearing completion along the same timeframe as this.
For the 3rd year running the time has come to kick off Mod Appreciation Week 2017 and talk about our favorite mods. To thank those from our community who participate in spreading the love and awareness, we have partnered up with some friends of Mod DB and have a bunch of Steam keys to giveaway:
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2017
After you have linked to a mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post, let us know by leaving a comment with a link to your post. At the end of the week we shall be picking a few members at random who followed these rules, and will send them a key from one of the above games.
