Post news Report RSS L.U.R.K. Version 1.1 Features Update

An update pertaining to features that have been included since our previous update.

Posted by on


It may seem as though the release of L.U.R.K. 1.1 is becoming more and more elusive, with fewer updates and ever delayed release. However you'll be happy to know that development is still cruising along smoothly. Many features have been added since our last update, and I'm excited to elaborate them in detail in this news update.

Changelog


(Please note that this list does not include all things elaborated in previous updates, and does not include all things that will be present in L.U.R.K. 1.1, announced or not.)

  • All NPC's voice acting reworked entirely. All Russian soundbytes have been replaced by English voice acting from Call of Pripyat.
  • Time interval prior to repeating a scripted voice clip has been removed.
  • Bloodsuckers have been replaced by Librarians from Metro 2033, with unique animations.
  • Enemies throw grenades, and use grenade launchers. Grenade indicators have been added to the HUD.
  • Polygon rendering structure has been replaced entirely by Point Cloud rendering.
  • Ray Tracing Lighting System to replace Deferred Lighting Renderer.
  • Manually cleaning your weapon is required in order to maintain it's condition, and to prevent weapon jams. Weapons should be inspected regularly following battles.
  • Real time sleeping, and stooling as well as urination required, as well as thirst. Players will have to actively maintain their body condition in order to maintain effectiveness in battle.
  • Upcoming Driver Support and in Game support for Microsoft NATAL.
  • Nvidia PhysX support, and extra Nvidia based GPU optimization, including 30% performance gain for Fermi based GPU's.
  • Real time vegetation growth. Plants will grow and die with time. Effected by weather.
  • Blowout occurrences scheduled for full moon cycle, which spawn Tarks.
  • Added Masterkey underbarrel attachment, Heartbeat Sensor, and optional perk upgrades available at Repair vendors, including Stopping Power and Magnum Rounds.
  • Knife has a lock-on system and assassination animations when used from behind.
  • Added auto-aim option in the menu.

And much, much more to come.

We've also provided images of our new rendering system in full force. Using many renderpaths from Crysis, and bringing Point Cloud Rendering into the now:



Thank you for your patience, for your patience shall be rewarded. L.U.R.K. is scheduled for an early release. Please stay tuned.

I'm one day late. Deal w/ it nerd

You know what best? This was posted on April the second, making Holden the biggest ******* fool known to man. I mean, he couldn't even post an April fool's joke on time.

Almost done with weapon reanimation which has taken the bulk of our efforts. So the latter part of this primarily humor article is true.

The reanimation project is what I'm most looking forward to in the next installment of LURK. It's something that sets it apart from every mod out there; it has animations that actually are nice to watch.

Yeah, a lot of the locations in SHOC are modeled after the real life locations almost exactly.

Nice update, Holden. derp.

For real though, are you guys maybe a little further than the 85% you quoted the other day in that thread?

Either way, looking forward to the actual release.

I'm guessing the "AvP-style" lock-on melee assassinations and auto-aim are bogus XD

or the fact that he can't even get 1/4th of the **** he just said in the game.

How on earth would I be able to do point cloud rendering when CG Movie producers can't even do it, let alone game developers.

I was reading and thought "oh boy, this is just awesome!!!" up until to the point where it said "Upcoming Driver Support and in Game support for Microsoft NATAL." Then I was like "wait a minute..." Yeah, you got me xD

Don't you think replacing monsters is starting to go a little far? I mean, can't we just stick with improving SoC, rather than changing it?

This mod isn't for "improving" SoC. It's for making it better in a different way.

Probably a joke anyway. If not, it's not making it stupid CoD or something, is it?

Will controllers be replaced with evil mind controlling unicorns?! Will Duty be replaced with space marines from 40k?!

It says April 2nd for me so I almost believed it till I got to real time sleeping.

Though I think a manually cleaning your gun thing would be kinda cool. Have a cleaning kit in your inv, like the sleeping bag, that you can use to clean weapons. It's rare that a weapon kept clean will actually break in such a manner that you need a gunsmith to repair it, as they are buily with good materials, considering the stress a lot of the parts go thru.

I've been wondering... what happens during a battle if you don't take a crap before? Does your character ruin any stealth by shrieking MY STOMACH THE PAIN THE PAIN!

XD Jk.
