Hey all! It's Alex, and let me just start by saying:
SUMMER IS HERE!
Finally we are out of school and we have time to hang with friends and among other things, work on Tension. We actually have been working a lot lately and suffice to say the game looks quite different from the last post in the sense we have a HUD!
It ended up being more of a theme setting object than actual information display. This is because in our game we want to have a minimalistic feel to the HUD.
The HUD started simply with the helmet outline, to which we added an altimeter to the left side, and decided to use images instead of numeric values on the altimeter because.. Well quite frankly it's cute. So cute.
In the video I'll also be showing off one of our alpha maps, just a simple orange free roam city but fun none the less.
Expect another post soon as we are in full swing (lolz) and excited to show off what we complete. As always any suggestions on the HUD are welcome, we were thinking of adding a lens flare, thoughts?
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Tension. We love games like Half-Life 2 that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
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 #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
