I know news has been a little scarce this last month but with a grueling exam period over the team are finally beginning to return to life as usual.
The mapping department have been churning out some truly impressive stuff. With the unstoppable combined power of Major C4, Brophis and Brechtos producing some formidable content.
The screenshots have not been blurred to emphasize the WIP
Some final shots of major C4's SGC with lighting complements of brechtos
The city of the ancients, just waiting to be explored
The various space vessels you will probably end up on during the game progress
And some beautiful shots of Brechtos masterpiece Abydos in all its glory
We have some very exciting news this month, we have recently joined forces with interwave studios (the people behind steamfriends) to help really speed up the project. so welcome to our new IW team members. Click Here to visit our new website and check out the team members.
Throughout the last month there has been so much going on it's hard to list it all, merging with InterWave Studios, going over documentation, meetings, and source code updating and improving upon. Much code had to be rewritten and it now is firmly within the Orange Box with basic functionality, and new features are being added daily such as several new systems like a wave based spawning system and capture-points for our objective gamemode. And next month we will have the finished weapons to show you and maybe even a quick video.
A little news from the audio front. Stargate isnt just about shooting and killing the Goauld although we will all admit that that is mighty fun!. I wanted to reflect some of the exploration side of Stargate in the music for the game. So just a quick sneak peek at one of the tracks tls_village. Based on the medieval village often seen in many episodes i believe captures this spirit of the moment.
