Report article RSS Feed Freebooter gets Storms and improved AI

We've added storms and AI Improvements to the game since our last update.

Posted by TribunalGames on Mar 8th, 2013

First up: Storms!


Right now it is mostly changes the atmosphere of the game but we plan on having it affect gameplay directly by influencing the wind and the waves as well as causing damage to ships at sea. 

We've also made some improvements to the AI:

AI Improvements

The AI now factors in the position and facing of its guns into decisions about how to move in combat - in the above picture the AI decided swing behind my stern would allow it to deal the most damage the fastest.

That's all for now! Remember to track us here in indieDB to keep up to date with Freebooters progress!

The storm looks pretty good, not much rain though, more like a drizzle. Looking forward to seeing this improved even further!

Yeah, it still needs polish but then almost everything in the game does.
