Report article RSS Feed 3089 Update: More construction & improvements!

You can now build teleporters, boosters & radar structures in v0.56a! I've also improved the graphics & made a few important tweaks & improvements to the gameplay.

Hey all,

3089 is getting much better — I’m starting to feel very confident in how this is all shaping up 
:)

You can now start playing with the teleporter, booster & radar! Hopefully none of your constructions will ever disappear now — I found (and fixed) a problem that may have rarely caused a section of terrain to be saved before it was done loading, causing “empty” constructions to overwrite previously saved constructions.

The artist from the game Towns has been giving me some pointers on the art direction & I made some adjustments (more are likely to come!). Basically, the high-contrast building textures are out, which I think looks better along with the general low-polygon & almost cartoon-ish look of everything else. Let me know what you think! I also gave the trees within bases a slightly different color so it wouldn’t look so monotone.

I also made a few other tweaks that combined with the radar should make stealth gameplay much more fun.

Getting the rest of the story flushed out is still at the top of the list!

OK, back to work!

I like the graphic touches a lot. Just having slight indentations on the buildings instead of completely flat walls adds a lot. I have fun just running around in these open world games looking around.

I haven't had much time to play and usually get killed early, but rolling along on the quests now. Appreciate all the work you put into these games.
