Here it is - the long waited update. It's been 4 months already since last update. Those months weren't very productive, however much was still done. So, let's begin with weapons.
Raging Bull .454 Casull Revolver
It's a render of new weapon made. It has real firepower, but only 5 rounds in cylinder.
Next thing is items: health pickups.
First Aid Kit - Human health pickup.
Blood Bag - Vampire health pickup.
Rib Eye Steak - Werewolf health pickup.
Next thing will be powers.
„Holy talk“ - Human, the Father character ability 90% done. (visual effect and 3rd person animations are not done yet.)
„Bat polymorph“ - Vampire, 1st class character ability 100% done.
„Howl“ - Werewolf, 1st class character ability 95% done. (minor visual effect is not done.)
Other powers will not be revealed for now.
Let's move to Map props: Candles!
More map props are currently being developed.
Vampire and werewolf „vision“/scent/sight were improved, faster shader effects, players are blinking while in „scent“/sight mode (this effect will probably be changed into better one) . Additionally werewolves with help of scent will be able to track other players.
See „Return to Church Mod - Werewolf 1st class gameplay“ video for new werewolf sight/„scent“ effects.
I started using particle systems in RTC.
So far Particle effects: for powers, whole feeding system, torch and candle fires... were done.
See „Return to Church Mod - Human gameplay, Map Environment“ video to see torch and candle fire particle effects.
See „Return to Church Mod - Vampire 1st class gameplay“ video to see vampire feeding, bat polymorphing particle effects.
See „Return to Church Mod - Werewolf 1st class gameplay“ video to see werewolf feeding particle effects.
Sound effects: so far RTC has 84 custom sounds, but only 1/4th of all sounds were covered.
Mapping: rtc_trade is 85% done, rtc_catacombs is 75% done. Here are some new screenshots of maps:

Programming: Lots of programming was done, however it's not worth to mention those things.
